REPORT: “The Benghazi Brief” – With Additional Research and Source Vetting
Posted on February 8, 2015 by sundance
Against the newly released secret Hillary Clinton tapes of Libya found by, and reported by, The Washington Times, we can review the material within The Benghazi Brief for context. What we find is the brief is factually affirmed with the additional reporting from the Hillary Tapes.
Here’s The Full Benghazi Brief
Grab a cup of coffee because it’s a long read with over 350 citations and reference source links for confirmational material. We think you’ll get hooked and find 95% of your Benghazi questions answered. And if you can find a factual flaw I’ll buy the coffee.. SD
We know from the Bret Baier interview with Hillary Clinton that she was physically located at her 7th floor office in Washington DC on the night of the attack. Unfortunately we also know during the November 2012 Thanksgiving holiday a mysterious fire took place in that building. Well, actually directly above her exact office – cause undetermined.
A “fire” which preceded an unfortunate slip and fall for the Secretary, resulting in a concussion, which led to the discovery of a blood clot, that ultimately delayed her congressional testimony before a Senate Hearing into the events of the night in question.
We know the Libyan uprising began on February 10th of 2011, and we also know that sometime around the end of February 2011 President Obama signed a presidential directive authorizing the State Dept and CIA to begin a covert operation to arm the Libyan “rebels”.
We also know of a Second Presidential Finding Memo authorizing additional CIA covert action in 2012, this time in Syria. However, unlike the 2011 Libyan operation we do not know the operational name of the second action in 2012 Syria.
We know the Libyan “rebels” were positioned in two strategic places. Benghazi, and the port city of Darnah, both located in Northeastern Libya.
We know this 2011 Libyan covert operation came to be known as “Operation Zero Footprint“, and fell under the military command authority of NATO not (important to repeat), NOT, the U.S. Military.
We know by the time operation “Zero Footprint” began, AFRICOM commander General Carter Ham was removed from OPSEC oversight in the Libyan campaign and NATO commander Admiral James G. Stavridis was in charge.
Stavridis was the Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR) at the time of the Libyan uprising. He retired as SACEUR in 2013
In 2011, 57-year-old Stavridis was the perfect pick for NATO Libyan intervention considering he is the son of Turkish immigrants. Turkey played a key role in what might be the most politically dangerous aspect of the events to the White House once the goals changed to redirection of the weapons from Operation Zero Footprint.
We know Operation Zero Footprint was the covert transfer of weapons from the U.S to the Libyan “rebels”. We also know the operation avoided the concerns with congressional funding, and potential for public scrutiny, through financing by the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
We also know that officials within the government of Qatar served as the intermediaries for the actual transfer of the weapons, thereby removing the footprint of the U.S. intervention.
We know the entire operation was coordinated and controlled by the State Department and CIA. We also know (from the Senate Foreign Relations Benghazi hearings) that “Zero Footprint” was unknown to the 2011 Pentagon and/or DoD commanders who would have been tasked with any military response to the 9/11/12 attack – namely AFRICOM General Carter Ham.

I don’t like Glenn Beck; but he is the only one willing to investigate and say what happen in Benghazi! Where is the Main Stream media? Selling propaganda!
Now we know why THEY had to lie about Benghazi? We know what THEY were covering up!

This is how I see it. Obama knowingly lied, after people had died. If you don’t know what I’m talking about you should be ashamed of yourself. You are totally out of touch with the world’s current events.
Ok, one month or more later, Mrs Clinton says it was her mistake; but she is not stepping down. Something is wrong here. Heads should be rolling; 4 people are dead. And the media should be all over this.
And then, during the presidential debate Libra-gate was discussed. The President boldly lied about Libra-gate again. And then the moderator miss spoke; miss spoke because she corrected yourself later. Obama continued the lie by saying he would be offended if anyone would assert that he did not have a big heart for all concerned. Well, not his exact words.
Now, 18 Oct 2012, it is coming out that the United States has a gun running program (per Glenn Beck and others) in the Middle East similar to the Fast and Furious program. Was this Lie by this POTUS meant to keep people off track of that. Keep in mind more than one POTUS may be involved.
The Truth About Libya – Failed Foreign Policy
America was attacked on September 11th, 2012 by Al Qaeda at our consulate in Libya. Our consulate was burned and four Americans including our ambassador were murdered. President Obama and his administration denied it was a terrorist attack for weeks. Since then, Americans have learned that Obama and his administration knew it was an act of terror all along and chose to tell the public it was because of a Youtube video protest. It’s time for Obama to tell the truth on Libya. We can’t afford more apologies, excuses, and weakness.
