No wonder King Putt has threatened CIA assets and attempted to hide military personnel who were privy to what happened the night the U.S. Ambassador to Libya was killed in a raid; the President’s blatant dereliction of duty armed al Qaeda with weapons powerful enough to blast airliners out of the sky:
A former U.S. Attorney who represents whistle-blowers with knowledge of what happened when armed militants attacked the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya last year says 400 surface-to-air missiles were ‘taken from Libya’ during the attack, and that the U.S. intelligence community is terrified they might be used to shoot down airliners.
Joe diGenova, whose wife Victoria Toensing – a former deputy assistant attorney general – also represents Benghazi witnesses and others with knowledge of the terror attack, told WMAL radio that the loss of those missiles is also one the reason the U.S. State Department shut down 19 embassies across the Middle East last week.
‘A lot of people have come forward to share information with us,’ he said during the radio station’s ‘Mornings On The Mall’ program Monday morning.
‘We have learned that one of the reasons the administration is so deeply concerned’ is that ‘there were 400 surface-to-air missiles stolen, and that they are … in the hands of many people, and that the biggest fear in the U.S. intelligence community is that one of these missiles will be used to shoot down an airliner. 400 missiles, surface-to-air missiles, taken from Libya.’
Asked if the missiles are now ‘in the hands of al-Qaeda operatives,’ DiGenova replied, ‘That is what these people are telling us.’
I’d like to remind you that Obama refused to give cross border authority to a force of 100 Recon Marines spinning up at Sigonella NAS, told Green Berets in Tripoli to stand down, and refused to call the region’s elite Delta CIF force to come to the rescue of more than two dozen and perhaps as many as 40 Americans under attack.
He had his campaign narrative of “al Qaeda is on the run” to preserve, and the destruction of a U.S. consulate and the possible over-running of a CIA position in a dusty desert version of Custer’s Last Stand is what he was willing to gamble. That he was also negligent enough to deliver al Qaeda hundreds of the exact weapons they’ve most wanted is a clear sign of the dangerously arrogant incompetence that permeates this White House.
But don’t worry folks; when airliners start dropping on our heads, he’ll find a way to “blame Bush.”
