On Politicizing The Benghazi IntelligenceTopics: Political News and commentaries
Via Tom Maquire, the Washington Beacon reports that the CIA was behind the politicization and sterilization of the Benghazi talking points. As for why they might have wanted to do that - in addition to the obvious political reasons (as in provide cover for Obama's campaign narrative), the NY Times gives us a new one ... the Obama Administration, presumably through the CIA, had given the wink to Qatar to arm Libyan rebels back during the undeclared 'kinetic action'. Some of those arms, as should have been anticipated, found their way to militant Islamists, although no one seems to know whether the specific group that attacked the Benghazi consulate was a beneficiary of US largesse.
Trickle, trickle, truth continues to gradually emerge a drop at a time.
Meanwhile, as the Middle East continues to burn and Benghazi questions remain, Hillary Clinton is focusing her energies on saving elephants.
