There are as many ships at sea as there are conspiracy theories afloat wagering upon what occurred in the Libyan city of Benghazi on the evening of September 11th 2012. Before examining the more compelling of these, however, let us ponder the seeds of a decision that we anticipate will ultimately lead to the undoing of the Obama legacy, if not presidency - the "mandate" of a mind-controlled electorate notwithstanding.

NPRInside Obama's Decisions - From Libya To Lunch

On making the decision to intervene in Libya

"He had been told that the French and the British were proposing to create a no-fly zone over Libya. His military people told Obama that a no-fly zone actually wouldn't stop Gadhafi, because Gadhafi wasn't flying. It was basically political cover — 'Look, we're doing something' kind of thing. So he goes to a meeting and he's presented with two options: One is do nothing at all, and the other is establish this no-fly zone, which he's already figured out actually doesn't do anything. So, what he does, to get an argument he's not getting from the important people in the room, is he says to the junior people in the room, 'Tell me what you think we should do.' And several of those people around the room say, 'We need to figure out a way to stop this slaughter.' ...

"And Obama turns to his generals and says, 'Go back to the Pentagon. Come back with an option that actually prevents this slaughter.' But you step back from this process and you think, here's a president basically making a decision all by himself that his top advisers would not have him make. And the consequence is, you know, a hundred-thousand people in Libya are now alive who would have been dead. To me ... it's a breathtaking power... 

Obama's deference to glassy eyed juniors calls the day, taking Michael Lewis's breath away. The headline coming later that night however would throw something of a turd into his throat...

That American would turn out to be the U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who perished along with three others. So it was that Obama met his "Mission Accomplished"...

NewsMaxHayden - Obama Libya Policy ‘Broke It, He Owns It’

“Here’s a case where we went into Libya for reasons that seemed very powerful for some people at the time, almost all of them humanitarian, perhaps without a true or deep appreciation for what the secondary and tertiary effects of overthrowing [Libyan ruler Moammar] Gadhafi would be.

This was always the story we saw in those cell phone videos of oppressed and oppressor, but there were other stories going on too, other narratives — East vs. West in Libya, tribal disputes in Libya, eastern Libya being home of the Islamic Libyan fighting group.

All these subplots were always out there and once you shatter the old society, these subplots become far more powerful and now we are seeing the results of that: Loss of control, portable air missiles, weapons from Libya being used to grab the northern half of Mali away from the Malian government, which is a good friend of the U.S."

“The U.N. Security Council resolution on Libya was bait and switch. It was never just humanitarian assistance, it was to overthrow the regime," added Hayden.


Hayden's observations are certainly valid, yet his motivation in making them is perhaps subject to question, in so far as his name comes up among a cabal of suspects in a "soft-coup" attempt that unraveled with the resignation of General David Petraeus as Director of Central Intelligence in the immediate aftermath of the election. As we read in the Wayne Madsen Report...

Sex, Lies, and Audiotapes -- the right-wing plot against Obama

There are many details that have not yet emerged and some informed speculation remains the order of the day. However, based on what we now know, a perhaps somewhat unwitting Petraeus; several Republicans, including failed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, Republican Party Svengali Karl Rove, Romney adviser Dan Senor; and the Binyamin Netanyahu government in Israel were involved behind the scenes to discredit and ensure the electoral downfall of President Barack Obama by engineering what Romney reportedly himself described as a "Jimmy Carter Strategy" in an October Surprise. The strategy was to bring about an incident in the Middle East that would result in a besieged or overrun U.S. embassy, like the U.S. embassy in Tehran in 1979 and 1980, that would result in charges that Obama, like Carter, was weak and ineffectual in dealing with a major crisis. Such a scenario would erase the street credentials Obama pocketed in the "raid" on Osama bin Laden. Raid is in quotes because the jury remains out on whether the U.S. Navy SEAL attack on the compound in Abbottabad actually resulted in Bin Laden's death or was a staged event to boost Obama's national security resumé. But that is another story for the time being.

Romney appears to be at the center of the Jimmy Carter Strategy and it is worth noting that the involvement of Petraeus and other flag rank officers, including ousted U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) chief General Carter Ham and Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette, the commander of the Middle East-deployed USS John Stennis aircraft carrier strike force. Gaouette was sacked by the Navy for “inappropriate leadership judgment” while his carrier group was in the Pacific en route to the Indian Ocean. Although the Stennis group was in the Pacific during the U.S. consulate siege in Benghazi on September 11, Gaouette's departure had nothing to do with personal misconduct and was very unusual during a deployment. WMR is being informed by sources throughout the military services that a number of senior military officers throughout the world were involved in the Romney campaign's Jimmy Carter Strategy to embarrass Obama prior to the election and that the insubordinate, if not treasonous, behavior extended to Petraeus's reported paramour, Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Paula Broadwell.

By Dawn's Early Light -- neocon and military plot against Obama unravels

Following the Petraeus resignation... Microsoft's media shy executive for Windows development, Steven Sinofsky, resigned (or as some suggest, was fired by CEO Steve Ballmer). No official reason was given. However, as the Petraeus scandal unfolded and began to involve other senior generals, it also became clear that e-mails between Petraeus and his girlfriend Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Paula Broadwell, between Broadwell and a MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa socialite named Jill Kelley, and between Kelley and commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan Marine Corps General John Allen were being leaked. It was also reported that the FBI was searching Broadwell's home in Charlotte, North Carolina after reports surfaced that her reported access to classified information did not come from CIA director Petraeus but from another source, or, perhaps, through a backdoor in software provided by Microsoft to the military and intelligence community -- a backdoor that now ex-Windows guru Mr. Sinofsky might have known about.

Former NSA and CIA director Michael Hayden, who arranged for Microsoft back doors to be installed in government and commercial software, has publicly called for Petraeus to answer questions about the siege of the U.S. embassy and the killing of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other State Department personnel. However, Hayden, who allegedly had his own extra-marital affair with an Air Force subordinate Air Force officer named Erika Proctor, whom he met in Sarajevo before he was NSA director, was an adviser to Romney, who hoped to use the Benghazi attack as a way of diminishing Obama's crisis reaction skills. Hayden, as NSA director, would have worked closely with Sinofsky and his staff to place back doors into Microsoft Windows e-mail and other communications systems. In fact, Microsoft maintains a full-time office at NSA headquarters to deal with surveillance issues that arise with Microsoft systems.

Madsen leaves many questions unanswered here: if Benghazi was essentially staged simply to discredit Obama, then it was quite superfluous since - as we shall see in conclusion - there has been plenty of civil unrest, Salafist "Al Qaeda" elements gaining a stronghold, as well as persistent attacks from Qaddafi loyalists to demonstrate that Obama's "humanitarian" war was a complete failure. If there was a right-wing conspiracy surrounding the Benghazi attack, it need have been little more than an opportunistic emphasis upon what was already going on. Hayden's alleged co-conspirators may have been in the room on the fateful day - if Michael Lewis's fanciful account is to be believed - when Obama dismissed the concerns of the Pentagon brass (presumably Robert Gates and Mike Mullen, both of whom had publicly expressed their reservations) in favor of his chicken-hawk R2P idealists (Cass Sunstein? Samantha Power? Susan Rice?) and gave the go-ahead for the NATO bombing of Libya. In the aftermath, the disgruntled brass, seeing the quagmire that had been brewing in the former Jamahiriyah, one they would eventually be called upon to clean up, may have proceeded to hatch a plot to a. get ahead of the crisis and b. shame the Commander in Chief before or after the election.


Generally coinciding with Madsen's allegations is Webster Tarpley...

PressTVCoup and counter-coup in Washington

Another observer and commentator on these events, and at times a player in intrigues such as these, is Dr. Steven Pieczenik, who also sees Benghazi and the Petraeus affair in terms of a coup attempt, though coming down on the side of Petraeus, while vociferously railing against those in the White House whom he refers to as the "choir boys" (primarily Brennan, Clapper, Donilon)...

Lyndon LaRouche, Jeffery Steinberg et al put the attack within the nexus of Saudi/British terror operations, the same nexus in which Saudi Ambassador Prince Bandar (aka "Bandar Bush") was implicated in connection with the 9/11/2001 attacks via his Al Yamamah account in the Riggs Bank of Washington D.C. by which at least two of the 9/11 hijackers were funded.

LPAC TVObama's Benghazi Failure

It is worth mentioning, along these lines of speculation, that (as noted in our summary of August and September headlines) Bandar was expected to attend a meeting in Ankara on September 3rd, at which General Petraeus was also reported to have attended. The subject of this meeting concerned the continuing support for the rebels in Syria, who have thus far been unsuccessful in their efforts to overthrow the Assad regime. Curiously enough, three days following this meeting, a large shipment of arms from Libya was reported to have arrived in Turkey, 35 miles from the Syrian border. Moreover, Ambassador Stevens was reported to have met with the Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin immediately before the attack occurred on September 11...

FOXNewsWas Syrian weapons shipment factor in ambassador’s Benghazi visit?


Then there is Lame Cherry, who it must be said jumped onto this story very early on, with the unique theory that the attack was not a neo-con putch against Obama, but rather an operation gone bad, one to be scripted  like the Bin Laden raid, whereby the Ambassador was to be taken hostage and then rescued in a SEAL Team Six type of rescue mission... A few of Lame Cherry's missives on this story, which she designates as "Analgate" - Stevens, a homosexual, was reportedly sodomized after he was killed. In her inimitable prose, worth quoting at length...

Told ya Obama was behind the Embassy Attacks

There is an Obama al Qaeda

Obama's Mohammed el Megarif....

Did Libya not go quite according to plan? You know it screwed up as what was probably the case was, Ambassador Stevens and this crew, were probably supposed to be "handed over" to this group, who would then "Death to Romney" chant some other things, and Obama would lament about it all BEING CHRISTIANS FAULT for about 12 days, as digitals would be produced with Stevens having puffy lips and on some Friday about 5 pm eastern time, Obama would stroll into the Rose Garden and state to Anderson Cooper, "I have rescued the American hostages, as I'm not Jimmy Carter, and you evil Christians caused all of this, but the SEALS I led have brought these heroes home, and now you can all vote for me as I'm such a brave leader"......while thumping his chest.

What happened though is these militant Muslim mercenaries Obama merchandises with, decided some butt sex while choking white guys would be something more profitable, as the Persian communists probably offered a bigger bribe to them to give Obama something to juggle, instead of leveraging them some more.

Bone a Petite

Why was Chris Stevens in  Muslim lands in being rewarded by Obama? A gay male in the land of Islam, and he was wading through the streets like he was in a gay parade.

You know the answers in this and it is dawning on you about the reality in there were two safe houses in Benghazi where were secret and this Obama al Qaeda mob knew exactly where they were to attack.

You know the guards had no weapons, and disappeared, just in time for the anal rape to take place...

It is evident that Mosaad smiled over this as they did after 9 11 in knowing this played directly into their security necessities, and there were insiders in America who did not cringe too much over this Obama voter intimidation operation, being turned back on them, when someone helped point out safe houses and other things.

One does not have to be behind events, but one certainly can assist in information flow for their best outcome and not what the Obama regime was instigating.

Obama's Dirty Laundry, second load

Oh yeah, so this Stevens Operation was fagalicious from years ago in the Axelrod playbook for Obama. It was all to take away the sting of Jimmy Carter's memory of absolute failure, to remind folks that Obama bought bin Laden's corpse which was something George W. Bush would not  do, and for Obama to chest thump his way to the White House again in not just stolen ballots, but a real hostage rescue, where he could replace the Netanyahu Boys in the Raid on Entebbe.....hell Obama would have his own movie made on this Raid on Benghazi.

If you do not get the subtitles, Benjamin Netanyahu's brother Jonathan was the only KIA in a rescue mission in Uganda in freeing Jewish hostages from PLO terrorists.

The Benghazi attack has become a point of focus in media coverage of post-NATO intervention in Libya to the exclusion of everything else; yet, there has been much else unraveling in Libya following the overthrow of Qaddafi, particularly in the months leading up to the Benghazi attack...

Libyan Free Press (May 8): Execution of big traitor General Shkal claimed by Green Resistance

Reuters (June 11): British envoy's convoy ambushed in Libya, two wounded

BBC (Aug. 5): Red Cross building attacked in Misrata, Libya

That the ongoing civil war has gone largely unreported or reported without emphasis in the mainstream press suggests much about the degree to which the press has aided the White House in its interest to suppress the bigger story - in contrast to, for instance, a similar situation in the aftermath of Operation Iraqi Freedom. When the initial victory gave way to insurgency, civil war, and quagmire, the violence was reported with emphasis. Of course, there were "boots on the ground" then, a sort of domestic collateral that insured that these stories could not be ignored. Libya could afford to be ignored as nominally there were no U.S. forces present; that is, until the story was forced upon the media in the case of the necro-raped Ambassador and his slain defenders. The subsequent coverage - not just the mainstream, but the independent left and right media with its indulgence upon a variety of conspiracy theories - nevertheless continues to obscure the larger story; that Libya is in chaos; it is not a functioning nation-state; it is not a safe place either for its people or for those who would want to do business. Michael Hayden is correct in his paraphrase of Colin Powell's 'you broke it you own it.' Of course, as in Iraq, breaking it, and not just regime change, was likely the goal from the beginning - to smash any challenger to the US-UK way of doing business - in effect telling the world: "You Suck".
