The Benghazi Scam

I wrote this article last year for another publication, but I keep referencing it in conversations, so figured I might as well share here...




From a factual standpoint, we will probably never really know what happened there that day, and why. The truth is clouded under layer upon layer of political distractions and obfuscations by intelligence services. The consulate that was raided was a CIA outpost in the middle of a terrorist stronghold. A terrorist stronghold  supported by the United States.

Was the raid simply a lashing out by militants against an American target? Was the attack orchestrated as part of some covert plot by the CIA themselves, angling with al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists? Was the attack the fruit of a rebellion within the ranks of American government, or even the military, to use as political clout in order to undermine the Obama administration? Was it part of some plot that we can't even catch a glimpse of from here at home, behind our television and computer screens? We will probably never know.

What bothers me the most though, is how this is being played out politically, in the court of public opinion. Let's face it, people die in hostile war zones every day. Benghazi was no different. This is not to denigrate the sacrifices made there and the loss of life that day, but this is the cost of war and business is good for the American war machine. While Republicans will rail against Obama for reportedly ordering a stand-down of forces to defend the consulate in the middle of a terrorist capital on the other side of the planet, let us not forget that it was Dick Cheney who ordered the stand-down of American air defenses on 9/11, before he ordered the shoot down of Flight 93 and then lied about it for years. (There are still people today who actually believe the Flight 93 band-of-heroes myth, and that the plane crashed in Shanskville. It did not.)

Lies upon lies surround 9/11, and no one seems to even care anymore, that so many questions are still left unanswered. Not the Democrats, and least of all the Republicans. Nearly three-thousand people were killed right here in two of America's greatest cities, and that attack was used as a pretext for a war that has gone on now for more than a decade. A war without end against an invisible enemy, with approximately 70,000 American dead and wounded, and more than a million civilian deaths. All of this madness, and we still don't know who is responsible for 9/11. All of this, and Republicans are screaming bloody murder as if the death of an American politician and his CIA bodyguards in Libya is so much more important than the lives of so many other Americans.

Let's just have a look at this on a tactical level for a moment. POTUS does not micro-manage security at every diplomatic mission around the world. This was not even an embassy, it was a consulate. The local and regional security was the job of the military assets already in place. Nonetheless, when told of the attack, Obama deployed Delta Force, the elite commando team specializing in hostage rescue. By the time they landed in their forward operating base in Sicily, that battle in Benghazi was over. If Obama or anyone in his administration did order a stand-down, it was more than likely on the recommendation of military and/or intelligence officers in the region.

While this may seem counter-intuitive to some readers, a stand-down order is not necessarily treasonous and can be born of legitimate tactical concerns. Understanding that it took weeks for them to sort out what even happened there in Benghazi, and that even today we still don't even really know who was responsible for that attack, it is not at all unreasonable for a military commander to refuse to send in troops without reliable intelligence on the situation. Whether it was a local commander, or the President himself refusing to deploy troops on some blind cowboy mission is not an act of treason, it is tactics 101 to not allow yourself to be baited. Imagine how it would have looked if Obama wound up with another "Black Hawk Down" scenario, like we had in 1993 at The Battle of Mogadishu, Somalia where terrorists baited US forces into a kill box. For all we know, Obama might have actually saved dozens, even hundreds of American lives by ordering them to hold, if it was even POTUS who actually did order the so-called stand-down.

Of course, that is speculative now at this point, but we certainly can't fault him or his commanders for exercising some basic common sense in tactics. You don't go walking into a shooting gallery wearing a blindfold.

What is not speculative however, is that neither Republicans nor Democrats bother to ask what we are even doing in Libya in the first place.

It’s Dishonest to Talk about Benghazi Without Talking About the Syrian War

Both Parties Are Trying to Sweep the Bigger Story Under the Rug

According to Democrats, today’s Congressional hearings on Benghazi are nothing but a partisan witch hunt.

According to Republicans, the Obama administration committed treason in it’s handling of Benghazi … and then tried to cover it up.

Both parties are avoiding the bigger picture … The fact that Democrats and Republicans alike have been using Benghazi as the center of U.S. efforts to arm the Al Qaeda-affiliated Syrian rebels.

[This article names the facility as a consulate. It appears as though those reports are not accurate. Former CIA officer Philip Giraldi states, "Benghazi has been described as a U.S. consulate, but it was not. It was an information office that had no diplomatic status."]

Two Cops Brawl During Traffic Stop

And this is why there are so few good cops out there. Because the crooked ones rule the roost.







On the one hand, the uniformed officer thought he "was about to shoot someone" as he put it, over a traffic violation. Had this been a civilian, that very well might have been the way it turned out. Almost certainly, the alleged speeder would have been pummeled into submission, then slapped with a whole slew of felonies and other charges. 

On the other hand though, an officer has every right to protect himself. So when the driver slammed the car door into his legs and jumped out, the uniformed officer was suddenly caught in a situation that was rapidly escalating out of his control. This is how cops get killed, by losing control of a situation. A police Lieutenant should know that better than just about anyone. Clearly, the internal affairs investigator was in the wrong here.

Nevertheless, no charges were filed against the detective. Not even the speeding ticket, after allegedly almost hitting a pedestrian at high speed. Again, if he had been a civilian, he would have been behind bars. There is no doubt of that whatsoever.

And the officer who really was just doing his job? Relieved of duty.

That's some... oh what's the French word for that? Oh yeah, bullshit!

A Note From Captain Six

If you have been a regular follower, you have noticed that my tempo of posting has gone way down. I like to put my take on at least a few news stories a week, if not daily, but I have hit some pretty hard times here. Did some time in jail for one thing. I expect to have the case dismissed soon, but it's gone a lot further than it ever should have. The legal troubles and a death in the family of someone I was very close to have compounded other troubles as well. So really, for the time-being, I just don't have what it takes to be as active as I was here on the site. I do apologize for that.

Thank you though, for your continued support. I still intend to go on as an activist for truth and justice, and will continue to post here as well, just not as often as I like to for now.

If you can see your way to clicking the donation key, any financial help you could give right now would be GREATLY appreciated.
