Evening Robert, you might find this interesting.UPDATE: Clinton assembles legal defense teamhttp://www.conservativedailynews.com/2012/10/clintonlegalteam/After weeks of administration officials blaming an anti-Islamic YouTube video for the attacks on the US consulate in Benghazi, new documents obtained by multiple news outlets now prove beyond doubt that Secretary Hillary Clinton was aware of the situation within 2 short hours of the onset of weapons fire on the consulate.Shortly after 4:00PM on September 11, 2012, emails from the consulate detailing the extreme nature of the attack were sent to some 200+ intelligence, State Department and White House officials, including the Situation Room. By 6:07PM, the email communications clearly indicated that Al Qaeda-linked Ansar al-Sharia had claimed responsibility for the attack.
But Glenn Beck is only doing this because there is a democrat in the WH, not a republican.
He says otherwise. Time will tell if he grills Romney as he should...
Gleen Beck might want to read 'The Devil's Game: How America contributed to the Rise of Fundamentalist Islim.
Glenn Beck always finds a way to throw in Hezbollah and Hamas. What a hoot. Bibi is still editing his scripts.
The US has been working with (perhaps more accurately, inventing) Al Qaida or radical Wahabists for decades. While it was possible to keep it hidden fromm the public in the past, the internet, along with more brazen behavior of the government has made it too obvious to conceal.Hence, the Obama the secret Muslim story. The rapture right true believers need a narrative to make sense of it all, and so the story is this is really a new US policy adapted only because of Obama's secret sympathies with the jihadists.It must be great to have a support base that will eat up whatever BS you put in front of them and call it ice cream.
It starts off OK but gets worse as it goes on. "Decent" is an extremely generous description.
Agreed, he is and always will be a statist.
Moral Authoritarian, at the least.
If Glenn's narrative is correct, it would seem that Chris Stevens knew where some very interesting Obama (globalist) skeletons were buried. Now that the arms are in place in Turkey/Syria, perhaps O needed to make certain those skeletons stayed buried with Mr. Stevens. Can you say Al Qaeda/CIA hit.All this news talk about who knew what when is just a smoke screen, it would appear.Just a thought from the tangled web...
I agree with many of the previous commentators. Some Beck's of analysis seems to reflect more Beck's obsessions with interconnecting Hamas, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other Beck boogeymen with whatever happens in the Middle East. Nevertheless, he has a point that it is pretty curious that Stevens would be in such an insecure place as Benghazi on Sept. 11th, and that the motive for this may have been gun running to Syria.What isn't clear though is why the US would have to use such shady figures (Islamic extremists? Even Al-Qaeda?)and such a circuitous route via Libya to smuggle arms all the way to Syria? If the US wanted to run arms, why not just use fellow NATO member Turkey who is right next door to Syria (with that large, porous border)? As Beck himself says in the video, Assad and Erdogan hate each other, and logistically it is much less risky to work directly through Turkey. Perhaps, for some reason, the US wanted to bypass, or create somehow an alternative network to the Turks. Still, it isn't clear that they had any motive to do this.
Not just guns themselves, but also the desperadoes to use them. Turkey labor cost is too high after their recent economic liberalization, and the people there are not especially keen on fighting and dying in Syria. The people in Turkey want to be part of Europe not being dragged back to the Arab world. The whole operation in Syria seems to be a way to get NATO involved in Syria via Article 5 on the Turkey-Syria border.
Seriously? Glenn Beck? Come on Robert, you know better.
Follow the petro-dollar. This is 100% about keeping the US dollar as the oil purchasing medium. If anyone starts trying to sell in anything other than US dollars the US goes to war. It must because if oil goes off the US dollar then the US dollar is worthless.
