4th generation US arms stolen by extremists in Libya

Theft of US weapons in Libya involved hundreds of guns and armored vehicles

Massive amounts of highly sensitive US military equipment have been stolen by extremist salafists in Libya, American news channel Fox News has reported.

The recent theft of massive amounts of highly sensitive US military equipment from Libya is far worse than previously thought, Fox News has learned, with raiders swiping hundreds of weapons that are now in the hands of militia groups aligned with terror organizations.

The equipment, as Fox News previously reported, was used for training in Libya by US Special Forces. The training team, which was funded by the Pentagon, has since been pulled, partly in response to the overnight raids last August.

According to State Department and military sources, dozens of highly armored vehicles called GMV’s, provided by the United States, are now missing.

The vehicles feature GPS navigation as well as various sets of weapon mounts and can be outfitted with smoke-grenade launchers.

US Special Forces undergo significant training to operate these vehicles. Fox News is told the vehicles provided to the Libyans are now gone.

Along with the GMV’s, hundreds of weapons are now missing, including roughly 100 Glock pistols and more than 100 M4 rifles. More disturbing, according to the sources, is that it seems almost every set of night-vision goggles has also been taken. This is advanced technology that gives very few war fighters an advantage on the battlefield.

“It’s not just equipment … it’s the capability. You are giving these very dangerous groups the capability that only a few nations are capable of,” one source said. “Already assassinations are picking up in Tripoli and there are major worries that the militias are using this stolen equipment to their advantage. All these militias are tied into terrorist organizations and are tied to (salafists).”

Meanwhile, special operators told Fox News that training camps throughout eastern Libya continue to train terrorists, and border controls right now around the country are non-existent in most areas.

The greatest relevance of this news report of an arms theft is to add one more glaring piece of evidence that the US has brought about and is encouraging 4th generation warfare in lands where it is interfering.

Many of the militants fighting to topple the government of Syria have been reported to be equipped with advanced US arms.

The theft report comes as US has also been training Syria militants, providing them with weapons and giving them financial support according to reports. Continue reading

Breaking: Whistleblower Reveals U.S. State Dept. Ships Arms Directly to al-Qaeda

The murder of Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi was an organized hit to cover up direct arm deals

By Kit Daniels, Infowars.com

A former CIA gun runner revealed that the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, was killed in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in order to cover up the U.S. State Department’s direct arm shipments to al-Qaeda.

Discussion on Benghazi attack starts around the 37:00 mark.

William Robert “Tosh” Plumlee started his career as a CIA contract pilot in the late 1950s, delivering guns and ammunition on behalf of the agency to Fidel Castro.

Plumlee confirmed that such arm deals are still common today, with the State Dept. shipping arms to al-Qaeda via the CIA.

During an interview with Alex Jones, Plumlee pointed out that Pat Smith, the mother of an information management officer also killed during the Benghazi attack, received little information from the Obama administration about her son’s murder.

“I began to wonder ‘why won’t they tell her anything?’” He asked. “Then a contact of mine in the Middle East, a high-ranking NATO official, mentioned to me that he had reports that the ambassador [J. Christopher Stevens] had been complaining about the dispatches and cables that he had got from the State Department about the weapons being received and [Islamic] radicals armed, including Stinger missiles.”

Scenarios for Obamagate in the second term

20121218-080914.jpg

By Dr Webster Griffin Tarpley, PressTV

The second Obama administration is now just a month away, reminding us of the century-old American tendency for second presidential terms to be troubled and often unsuccessful. Second terms are particularly vulnerable to scandal.

At the same time, constitutional changes made after World War II have guaranteed that every second term president is a lame duck, and therefore less feared by his enemies. It is impossible to predict the future, but it is also clear that the second Obama administration bears a major vulnerability: this is a foreign policy heavily reliant on support from irregular military forces which can only be described as “al-Qaeda.” Obama has in fact gone far beyond any of his predecessors in his use of terrorist fighters as the infantry component in the NATO-backed assaults on countries like Libya and Syria, as well as for operations in Pakistan and Yemen. This is often what “leading from behind” really means.

The declared goal of the US military in Afghanistan and Pakistan, as well as in Somalia and Yemen, is to kill any al-Qaeda fighters which they manage to locate. But when it comes to Libya and Syria, al-Qaeda fighters are welcomed, provided with transportation, given logistical support, armed, paid, and given diplomatic assistance by the Pentagon and the State Department. This blatant contradiction has been building up since the early months of 2011, and it may now be reaching critical mass.

In the case of Libya, much of the country, and especially the eastern province of Cyrenaica – including the Benghazi-Derna-Tobruk corridor – is now under the control of warlords and militias from the orbit of al Qaeda. The September 11 assassination of US Ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi – already a cause célèbre for Republicans — was largely the handiwork of a pro-Romney network inside the Pentagon and General David Petraeus’ CIA, but one of the reasons the Obama administration has been forced on the defensive regarding this incident is that a main task of the Benghazi consulate/CIA post has been to maintain relations with al-Qaeda death squads, especially for the purpose of moving them through Turkey into Syria to wage war against the Assad government. Any serious inquiry into the Stevens assassination thus risks exposing his role as an ambassador to al- Qaeda.

In the case of Syria, the United States has now extended full diplomatic recognition to the Syrian National Coalition, a collection of front men for the al-Qaeda fighters who provide most of the military potential of the so-called Free Syrian Army. In an attempt to camouflage this scandalous state of affairs, the State Department has also officially branded the principal striking force of the FSA, the Jabhat al Nusra brigades, as a terrorist organization. Al-Nusra includes 29 of the principal death squads, which have been doing most of the recent fighting against the Syrian army.

A “humanitarian intervention” in Syria – 150 years ago

[Editor’s note: This article is also available in FRENCH and SPANISH ]

A humanitarian intervention in Syria? Humanitarian grounds had already been used in 1860 … precisely by France as a pretext to intervene militarily in Syria, then an Ottoman province. In this article, Geneva University scholar Pascal Herren lays bare the true intentions of France under Napoleon III, which were every bit as disreputable as those pursued under Sarkozy or Hollande. He also brings to light the dire consequences that befell the peoples of the region.

On 16 August 1860, a French expeditionary force landed in Beirut. According to Napoleon III, the French military were going to “restore order” in Syria, then an Ottoman province. Regarded today as the first example of “the right to intervene on humanitarian grounds”, the military intervention actually served to increase France’s economic stranglehold in the region.

A humanitarian intervention in Syria is recurrently demanded; it should put an end to the suffering which the population has been exposed to since 2011 due to the struggles between the regime and the armed opposition. The main responsibility for these fights is attributed – rightly or wrongly – to the government.

So, this relief effort would involve overthrowing the current regime. It is suspected to have indirectly started several months ago, when the insurgents were armed and also agents and foreign troops were deployed into the area. However, the use of force on the territory of a foreign country without the consent of the competent authorities contradicts the principle of state sovereignty enshrined in the UN Charter. Use of force between states is prohibited with the exception of the case of legitimate defense or a joint action decided by the Security Council. Continue reading

US-Created “Syrian Opposition” Led by Big Oil Rep

20121126-095200.jpg
By Tony Cartalucci, Land Destroyer for Activist Post

A year ago, it was reported that Libya’s new NATO-installed prime minister, Abdurrahim el-Keib, was in fact a long-time US resident, having taught at the University of Alabama and was formally employed by the Petroleum Institute, based in Abu Dhabi, UAE and sponsored by British Petroleum (BP), Shell, France’s Total, the Japan Oil Development Company, and the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company. El-Keib is listed as a “Professor and Chairman” in his Petroleum Institute profile which also describes extensive research conducted by him sponsored by various US government agencies and departments over the years.

His long history of serving and working in coordination with Western governments and corporations made him and his collaborators the ideal candidates to prepare Libya for its place within the Wall Street-London international order.

Now it is revealed that the US-handpicked opposition, announced in Doha, Qatar earlier this month, is led by a similarly compromised figure, Moaz al-Khatib. The corporate-financier-funded Carnegie Endowment for International Peace reported of al-Khatib that:

Moaz al-Khatib, an oil sector engineer and former imam of the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus, has garnered substantial praise since his designation, while Riad Seif and Suhair al-Atassi bring their own credibility to the coalition. They have now set up shop in Cairo and have received the full endorsement of France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Turkey, and the members of the Gulf Cooperation Council as the ‘sole representative’ of the Syrian opposition. The European Union and the United States have endorsed the group in a more general fashion.

Even more importantly, from Syrian citizens of various affiliations with whom I have met recently, it is clear that al-Khatib and his associates seem to draw praise for their opposition to the regime—as an imam, al-Khatib refused to follow the speeches imposed by the regime and was imprisoned—their resistance, and their tolerance. These endorsements are a first achievement, but a number of steps are necessary before Moaz al-Khatib becomes the real head of the Syrian opposition and enters into a substantive relationship with EU leaders.

However, this resounding praise should be kept in the context that among the Carnegie Endowment’s sponsors are in fact many “oil sector” giants including British Petroleum (BP), Chevron, Exxon, and Shell.

BENGHAZI-GATE – RICE: ‘I LIED TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BECAUSE OF INTEL.’ (REALLY?)

[Editor’s Note: The Narrative about Benghazi were Edited to remove the fact mentioning a planned Terrorist attack in order to follow the White House and Secretary of State version : The ‘story about the spontaneous riots’ due to the youtube anti-muslim film. This False version, this LIE was sustained by the Secretary of State, the Defense Secretary and the President until after the U.S. elections. CIA Director David Petraeus confirmed during House Hearings that it was not the CIA who edited The Narrative. It could only have been done by DHS NAPOLITANO under order of OBAMA.]

Susan Rice Lays All Blame on Intel Community for Her Misleading the American People

20121123-074520.jpg

BY DANIEL HALPER, The Weekly Standard

Ambassador Susan Rice has finally explained, in her opinion, why she misled the country about what happened during the September 11 terror attack against Americans in Benghazi, Libya. According to Rice, all the blame should be given to the intelligence community for her misleading comments made five days after the attack, since she was just repeating what they had told her.

A reporter asked, the American ambassador to the United Nations, “Ambassador Rice, would you explain your view of the controversy concerning your comments about Benghazi? And have—is Senator McCain fair in what he has said?”

“As a senior US diplomat, I agreed to a White House request to appear on the Sunday shows to talk about the full range of national security issues of the day, which at that time were primarily and particularly the protests that were enveloping and threatening many diplomatic facilities—American diplomatic facilities—around the world and Iran’s nuclear program. The attack on Benghazi—on our facilities in Benghazi—was obviously a significant piece of this,” Rice explains.

Coup and counter-coup in Washington

General David Petraeus, former CIA director

 

By Webster Griffin Tarpley

Sometimes, generals purge politicians. In 1648, during the English Civil War, Colonel Pride and his troops removed those members of the Long Parliament who opposed military domination; the puppets who remained were called the Rump Parliament.

This year, a cabal of generals evidently believed it could secure the White House for Mitt Romney by staging the Benghazi incident and using it as the signal for a cold coup under cover of elections — probably including computer-generated election fraud — to bring down Obama. They guessed wrong.

Politicians sometimes purge generals. When the French Secret Army Organization (OAS) staged a putsch in Algiers in April 1961 to prevent the independence of Algeria, President de Gaulle had to round up and jail a number of generals and other officers. The Obama administration and its establishment controllers appear to be ousting a number of intelligence and military officials who took part in illegal operations to replace Obama with Romney. These sackings are being presented to the public under the guise of soap opera sexual infractions or expense account padding, in the hope of hiding some real mechanisms of power from the popular gaze. The outgoing US military cabal favors the extension of colonial wars, like those in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as an attack on Iran. Good riddance.

General Petraeus: Neocon Who Sought War with Iran

The most spectacular example is the fall of General David Petraeus, the CIA director, and one of the leading US advocates of an early war with Iran. The heads of several other rogue figures are rolling. The result is one of those rare moments when parts of the rogue network or invisible government can be observed by those who have enough knowledge to understand what they are seeing. But the firings have only scratched the surface.

The Romney backers were made up of neocons, Bush holdovers, and members of the Mormon Mafia in the intelligence community — a relatively narrow base. The Obama supporters were the Brzezinski-Nye soft power group and military opposed to the Iran war. The neocons and reactionary Mormons wanted to restore aggressive war and wholesale bombing as the preferred option for US foreign policy. Although they love drones and assassinations, they want to keep significant US conventional forces in the Middle East.  Continue reading

Barack Obama’s Benghazi LIES-LIES-LIES-LIES-LIES…

FIVE TIMES, at the direction of the Obama White House, did U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice appear on the Sunday news programs days after the deadly Benghazi terrorist attack that left four Americans, including a United States ambassador, dead.

Ulsterman Report

Media are now indicating Barack Obama was briefed my military intelligence BEFORE Susan Rice was sent out by the Obama White House to spread the lie that the Benghazi attacks was the result of an unknown YouTube video and not terrorism.

Barack Obama himself then went to the United Nations days after Susan Rice’s lies, to spread that same lie that the YouTube video was at fault. The Obama administration refused to use the term terrorism, and both Rice and Barack Obama were repeating the lie that al-Qaida had been destroyed, when in fact the actual evidence stongly suggested an al-Qaida affiliate had just murdered an American ambassador.

EXCERPT: (via Washington Guardian)

President told within 72 hours Benghazi attack linked to al-Qaida extremists

U.S. intelligence told President Barack Obama and senior administration officials within 72 hours of the Benghazi tragedy that the attack was likely carried out by local militia and other armed extremists sympathetic to al-Qaida in the region, officials directly familiar with the information told the Washington Guardian on Friday.

Based on electronic intercepts and human intelligence on the ground, the early briefings after the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya identified possible organizers and participants. Most were believed to be from a local Libyan militia group called Ansar al-Sharia that is sympathetic to al-Qaida, the official said, while a handful of others was linked to a direct al-Qaida affiliate in North Africa known as AQIM.

Most of the details affirming al-Qaida links were edited or excluded from the unclassified talking points used by Rice in appearances on news programs the weekend after the attack, Continue reading

Benghazi-gate: Lame Cherry right again about Jill Kelley

By Lame Cherry

My children, who was it but your popular girl who told you to stop looking at the mammoth mammaries of Jill Kelley and start focusing on her honeypot Lebanese associations in SOMEONE WAS PROTECTING HER FROM INSIDE THE OBAMA REGIME.
That is a statement and not a question for the monkeys in the Ulsterman zoo.
Now 24 hours later is the Drudge featured breaking story of Jill Kelley was eating our or is it eaten out at the White House three times this year.

CIA’s Talking Points Were ‘Edited’ to Play Down Terrorism…
Director Knew Immediately Al Qaeda-Linked Group Responsible for Benghazi…
… ELEMENT REMOVED FROM SUSAN RICE’S TALKING POINTS
FLASHBACK: What she said…

Lawmakers shown video of envoy being dragged out…

BETRAEUS!

SOCIALITE WHO BROUGHT DOWN PETRAEUS DINED AT WHITE HOUSE THREE TIMES THIS YEAR…

The reason Jill Kelley phoned the FBI and the FBI jumped for her, was the intimate connection to B. Hussein Obama. As stated from the start, exclusively only from this blog, exactly according to the Kremlin protocols and the same scenario J. Edgar Hoover utilized, Jill Kelley has all the stretch marks of a minder which infests regimes in intimate data mining to keep tabs on powerful people, blackmail them and to extract information from them.

This blog broke this story again by God’s Grace and the reality is the media is still catching up.

Goodness people, we have a war on terror, involving Muslims and Middle Eastern associates. Obama has good and bad terrorists. Jill Kelley is all over a top security hub and is attached to powerful men on the right in Patraeus and Rubio, and she is sitting down to dinner with Barack Obama…..all in being Middle Eastern in heritage.
Where do you think her loyalties lie and with her family’s massive debt bills, who is keeping the creditors at bay…..as Patraeus is showing up in court to defend Jill Kelley’s sister in a nasty custody hearing….after being fondled under the table.

In 1970, Director J. Edgar Hoover would have arrested this entire bunch, and been banging on 1600 Penn Avenue with warrants to find out the connection of Lebanese Kelley to Lebanese Obama Osseiran, as the connection now looms in the reality, the top man at CIA and top for Europe have been removed due to the machinations of two Lebanese inside America during a war on terror involving these people’s namesakes.

Petraeus ‘Knew Almost Immediately’ Al Qaeda-Linked Group Responsible for Benghazi

20121117-133815.jpg

By Daniel Halper, Weekly Standard

David Petraeus is going to tell members of Congress that he “knew almost immediately after the September 11th attack, that the group Ansar al Sharia, the al Qaeda sympathizing group in Libya was responsible for the attacks,” CNN reports.

In his closed door meeting on the Hill, “[Petraeus] will also say he had his own talking points separate from U.N. ambassador Susan Rice. [Hers] came from somewhere other in the administration than his direct talking points,” Barbara Starr of CNN reports, referencing a source close to Petraeus.

The former CIA director will move to further himself from comments that didn’t accurately characterize the terror attack that Rice made 5 days after on national television shows.

“When he looks at what Susan Rice said,” CNN reports, “here is what Petraeus’s take is, according to my source. Petraeus developed some talking points laying it all out. those talking points as always were approved by the intelligence community. But then he sees Susan Rice make her statements and he sees input from other areas of the administration. Petraeus — it is believed — will tell the committee he is not certain where Susan Rice got all of her information.”

[Editor’s Note: Guess from Whom Susan Rice got her info to describe the Attack on Benghazi as spontaneous riots due to the Anti-Muslims Film ? It could have only come from Obama as He did say the same on his press conference after the attack but also in his interview to 60 minutes.]
