Trump and the Neocons

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | April  15, 2017

There are many theories on the Trump phenomenon.  Here are a few variables to consider:

  • The RNC and the DNC did not want Trump to win.
  • The DNC’s preferred candidate was Hillary Clinton
  • The RNC’s preferred candidate was Jeb Bush
  • The establishment Republicans preferred Hillary to Trump (on record); there were likely many more.
  • Trump was seen by the DNC and likely by the RNC as a tool to assure a Hillary victory
  • The CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) did not want Trump
  • The Trilateral Commission did not want Trump
  • The Neocons did not want Trump
  • The Bilderbergers did not want Trump
  • The Davos bootlickers and groupies did not want Trump
  • The MSM did not want Trump
  • Elements of the deep state did not want Trump (Deep State: The permanent state.  Those elements controlled by the CFR who reside within the permanent state. Examples: CIA, NSA, State Department and many other top agencies.)
  • The European Commission which controls the EU did not want Trump
  • Hillary cheated Bernie out of the nomination
  • The RNC attempted to cheat Trump out of the nomination
  • There was massive unreported voter fraud committed by Hillary supporters during the election
  • George Soros did not want Trump
  • The uninformed and misinformed Democrat rank and file did not want Trump

The table was set for a Hillary win, but Trump’s populism overwhelmed the system.  Despite Trump’s win, the powerful enemies list above was not to be denied.  Their next step was to stop Trump at any cost.  They’ve tried to tie Trump to the Russians with absolutely zero evidence and despite the full support of the MSM to paint this narrative in the minds of the American public, this ruse has failed. They would like to have an impeachment, but I’m not sure if they have figured this one out yet, though they are working day and night on this tactic.  In the meantime, Trump’s enemies within the deep state, and with help from the neocons in Congress, have been able to apparently cause Trump defaults on many of his campaign pledges; though some may seem to be a default are in fact consistent with his prior statements.

A few signs of problems surfaced prior to the election like Trump’s pick of Pence for VP.  Pence is a true-blue globalist, though many uninformed have debated me on this.  Pence being labeled as a conservative Christian is enough for them.   What they do not realize is that I was doing some homework on Pence prior to his selection as VP.  What I discovered was very disturbing.  I read Pence’s web site while he was Governor of Indiana (2013–2017).  On his web site was a glowing, detailed endorsement of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) which was my major concern with Cruz.  This was removed from the Website immediately after Pence was picked for VP.  Unknown to most of Americans who have their head permanently stuck inside the propaganda cannon we call TV, the TPP would have ceded US sovereignty to an unelected board of bureaucrats reporting to international banking and business interest subjugating the US Constitution under this globalist framework. The TPP would have controlled the movement of goods services and people and relegated the US Constitution to an historical foot note.  Even the passage of the fast track authorization for TPP in the Senate was done underhandedly.  Since the TPP is a treaty and not an agreement it is required to have a 2/3rds vote (66) in the senate—which they did not have– but the Republican-controlled senate changed this constitutional requirement to a simple majority vote of 51 calling this treaty an agreement.  Additionally, the agreement was held behind locked doors in the basement where none of the Senators could read this 5,544 page treaty prior to passage without special provisions.  You could not have a cell phone, take pictures or notes or have an aid accompany you.

NPR: “For any senator who wants to study the draft TPP language, it has been made available in the basement of the Capitol, inside a secure, soundproof room. There, lawmakers surrender their cellphones and other mobile devices. Any notes taken inside the room must be left in the room.

Only aides with high-level security clearances can accompany lawmakers. Members of Congress can’t ask outside industry experts or lawyers to analyze the language. They can’t talk to the public about what they read. And Brown says there’s no computer inside the secret room to look something up when there’s confusion. You just consult the USTR official.”

So for Pence to support TPP, either he is a moron, uninformed or he is a globalist.  Pence is no moron.

Then we have the case of General Michael Flynn (Trump’s National Security Adviser) who was forced to resign because he wasn’t entirely honest with VP Pence about talking to the Russians.  This is a bold-faced lie and used as cover to get rid of Flynn.  Why?  Because, yes Flynn did talk to the Russians, but that is his job. Now what did he say to the Russians?  Flynn deflected from any substantive talks and said that they could discuss with Trump and others once Trump was confirmed.  Nothing wrong here, but Flynn was forced out nonetheless.

It is important to note why Flynn is so important here.  Flynn was the General who outed Obama’s support for ISIS, and Flynn led that part of the deep state that refused to support ISIS.  Flynn’s leadership in this internal battle helped elect Trump and protect Trump, yet Trump thought nothing of throwing Flynn and his reputation under the bus.  Why?  I do not know, but what I do know is that the reason Trump gave for removing Flynn was a bold-faced lie.

Since the Flynn removal, Trump has moved closer to the position of the Neocons as evidenced when he used the exact same lie Obama did to attack Syria.  Trump lie #2.  Everyone including Trump knows that Assad did not release sarin gas on his own people, but that doesn’t matter for the narrative promulgated by the neocons and their sycophant press.  So now, Trump is seeming to look more acceptable to the Neocons but has alienated much of his base.    Trump has done a 180 on his support for NATO and is showing other signs of compromise on previously stated core values.  Trump’s selection of CIA Chief Mike Pompeo is very worrisome to say the least.

The true-blue Trump supporters are saying that Trump is playing –not 3D chess– but 64D chess, and we just can’t see the big picture.   While Trump is a great improvement over a Jeb or a Hillary and continues to deliver on some domestic promises, we cannot relax, we must continue the battle to reestablish this Republic and the Individual Rights our founding documents guarantee.

Stopping ISIS

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | April  14, 2017

Fort Hood has put a boot on the ground for every American life lost in Iraq and Afghanistan. A powerful memorial.

Though it is an admitted fact, the CIA built the tunnels we are now bombing with MOAB in Afghanistan, this is only a small piece of the larger puzzle that seems to confound the general public who has little knowledge or context that is not supplied by the MSM or the entertainment industry. Add to this the fact most Americans don’t read and have a very short attention span.

You may champion Trump’s bombing of the evil radical’s tunnels in Afghanistan, but when you add the other pieces of the puzzle, you might come to a different conclusion. What are the other pieces? They are that Al-Qaeda actually is just the name of a file at the FBI that means ‘the base’ and that Al-Qaeda was an invention of the USA. Ben Laden was funded by the CIA ($3 billion). The CIA gets much of its off the books funding from drug trafficking, thus it is no surprise US forces in Afghanistan are protecting the poppy fields; and opium production in Afghanistan has mushroomed from a small trickle to now providing 90% of the world’s opium since the US illegal and unconstitutional invasion of this sovereign country. ISIS has been funded, trained and armed by the USA, (Gen. Michael Flynn and others) ISIS is part of a US-backed Gladio-B operation used to destabilize the MENA (FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds and others). Gladio-A was used in Ukraine. The sarin gas in the 2013 attack was supplied from Libya by the US and delivered by US-backed rebel-fighters (Seymour Hersh, CIA operative Tosh Plumlee and others), though the US blamed Assad. Assad and Russia are the only ones protecting Christians in Syria. Prior to the US efforts to destabilize Syria, Muslims, Jews and Christians lived and worked in relative peace together in Syria for 200 years. The US-backed rebels have slaughtered some 300K innocent civilians mostly Christians. ISIS, et al. are just a US-proxy army carrying out a larger US Geopolitical strategy outlined in Zibig’s 1997 book entitled ‘The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy And Its Geostrategic Imperatives’. The US had a policy to destroy 7 countries in 5 years in the ME (see General Wesley Clark Supreme Allied Commander Europe of NATO). BTW this is all illegal and unconstitutional. The US cannot be trusted. The US is the greatest force for evil on the planet.

Most of the so-called radical extremists are grown and cultured in the 1000s of Wahhabi Madrassas funded by our best head-chopper pal Saudi Arabia.

How to defeat the radical extremists? Stop funding, arming and training them and then get rid of their major supporter, the House of Saud. Next, stop bombing the shit out of everyone, then stop destabilizing the MENA through regime change. By destroying Libya –for example—we have taken the lid off of Africa which ushered in a massive influx of refugees into the EU.

It’s all theater for public consumption, while the neocons get rich and the globalists get their larger geopolitical goals met. Stop being their fools. Now.

Has Trump Surrendered?

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | April  6, 2017

Is Trump losing the Neocon chess game or is he just sacrificing some pawns to ready for a future attack? 

Neocon Chess …
-Flynn Resigns as National Security Adviser
-Bannon removed from National Security Council
-Nunes steps aside from Russia investigation
-Trump attacks Syria

Trump just lobbed 59 Tomahawk missiles ($1.6M ea.) at a country that does not threaten the US and without a declaration of war as required by the US Constitution. Keep in mind that Assad has done nothing to the USA and does not threaten our national security in the least. Also, keep in mind, the first sarin gas attack the West blamed on Assad turned out to be supplied by Hillary. Does it matter the so-called (US-backed) ‘rebels’ have slaughtered 100s of thousands of innocent Syrians, most of whom were Christians? Does it matter that only Putin and Assad (not US/NATO) are protecting the Christians in Syria?

THIS IS WHAT A TOMAHAWK CRUISE MISSILE DOES

Saudi Arabia and Qatar didn’t want Iran and Syria to build a proposed pipeline between Iran and Syria which would have been competition to the House of Saud and Qatar (Our best head-chopping buds for life). The House of Saud didn’t like Syria’s Assad because he is Alawite not Sunni like them. Most of Syria (64%) is Sunni. Interesting note: Muslims, Jews and Christians have lived and worked in relative peace together in Syria for 200 years. Also, it is important to note that the US Geopolitical strategy was to destabilize the Middle East which included Syria so the Saudi and US State Department are in complete agreement that Assad must to go.

On the very useful and orchestrated hatred of Muslims

I cannot and do not dispute any quotes found in the Quran.  I cannot and do not dispute any of the horrible violence committed by Muslims, nor do I condone any of this violence.  I cannot and do not dispute that much or all of this violence can be justified by what is found in the Quran.  The Quran is full of contradictions. There is nice stuff in the Quran and there is violence in the Quran.  The context of which I speak is that most of the violence we see on the world stage today has been financed and supported by the USA and Saudi Arabia and most of the Islamic violence sources from Wahhabism which is spread by the 1,000s of madrasas funded and supported by our major alley in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia.  The USA has funded, trained and armed al-Qaeda and ISIS. This is not my opinion, this is a documented fact.  The USA also supports and protects the major progenitor of this violence, Saudi Arabia.  We also know that Muslims, Jews and Christians have lived and worked side by side in relative peace in Syria for over 200 years until the USA decided they wanted to impose regime change and get rid of Assad.  Why?  Because the House of Saud did not like Assad, and because Assad wanted to build a pipeline that would supply the Western European market which would have cut in on Saudi Arabia’s profits.  There is much more to this story, but we, the USA, need to own our role.  Where do you think all the Christians in Syria came from that ISIS murdered? They were protected by Assad until the USA unleashed its proxy army called ISIS on Syria.  So the reality is that the USA –a Christian nation by tradition–is funding, arming and training those who are killing Christians.  We should be asking why.

This Sea of Ignorance

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | September 10, 2015

David Brown

David Brown

Sometimes it is a bit frustrating to debate people who have not taken the time to read Quigley’s  ‘Anglo-American Establishment’  or the many historical accounts of Antony C Sutton; but I must take the world as I find it.  Most of these people are smart and well-intentioned but lack key information.      Faced with similar frustrations, Joe Plummer would give away Quigley’s books in the hope someone would read them, only to find out the challenge was too great.   Rather than give up, however, Joe decided to write his own slimmed-down, easier to understand and updated book on Quigley called appropriately Tragedy and Hope 101.    In this sea of ignorance, how can we have an intelligent or sane conversation without 1) key information on the real players; 2) fundamental knowledge of methods and procedures and 3) the proven historical backdrop provided by Quigley and other researchers?   That is the question.   Without the historical context and an understanding of the genealogy and pedigree of the current batch of oligarchs, how can we advance our mutual understanding and how can we engage in an effective contest for our freedom as the collective noose is tightened around our collective necks?

We are encouraged by the rapid spread of information through the internet; and we are encouraged to understand, historically, the information wars can be won by as few as 5% of the populations.    I am also encouraged by the many people who have not read Quigley, yet by the sheer force of their own intellectual skills and keen observations, can impute without the direct information provided by Quigley.   Without Quigley, they point to inconsistencies in the official historical record and the official stories of finance, geopolitics and social engineering that deserve a complete accounting and then demand an explanation.   The interview below with Paul Craig Roberts is a very good example of the brilliant intellect of PCR who struggles without the benefit of Quigley.

Paul Craig Roberts Interviewed by John B. Wells, Caravan To Midnight

Another good example of brilliance overcoming ignorance without the benefit of Quigley can be seen in the excellent interview of NSA Whistleblower William Binney by Richard Grove here.
Obviously, Mr. Grove is well versed in Quigley, but the question must be asked:  How much more effective would Binney or PCR be if they had the benefit of Quigley’s and Sutton’s documented evidence?

I’ve often said …

“There are two kinds of people: Those who have read Quigley and those who have not; and it is very easy to tell the difference.” 

I didn’t say this to be offensive or elitist or to prove I’m smarter than anyone else. I said it simply because it is true. Once the truth of what Quigley said hits you, you can never go home again, you can never see the world the same way again. Your innocence is lost.   Your naive belief in the goodness of so many institutions is forever shattered by documented fact. You see with clear eyes and so you are more difficult to fool by those who build the walled-gardens of propaganda where most of your fellows live out their intellectual lives; never questioning the construction of these walls, built of ‘well-established’ assumptions which are in fact lies.

But even with the revelations provided by Quigley, Sutton and others, the picture is never complete and of course changes over time.   The old guards die, providing room for the new oligarchs and their attendant power structures; but these changes are mostly traceable and predictable. The footprints of the past are seen everywhere in the present. Today, we have a new generation of brave, brilliant investigators and heroes who have continued –sometimes at great personal sacrifice– to peel back the curtain so that we can observe those who seek to enslave the rest of us for their own selfish purposes. See the Julian Assange interview below.

Assange on ‘US Empire,’ Assad govt overthrow plans & new book ‘The WikiLeaks Files’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Published on Sep 9, 2015

Afshin Rattansi goes underground with the world’s most wanted publisher – the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange. He has just co-authored a book – the WikiLeaks Files, and it paints a picture of systemic US torture and killing as well as the destruction of the lives and livelihoods of billions of people right around the world.

There are many examples of our Superstars who have read and understand Quigley and Sutton:

Benghazi Deception

stevensGood, fact-based reporting by Jerome R. Corsi  in the article linked just below.  We’re inching slowly toward the truth, but the truth is yet to be told. Missing pieces: Why was the stand-down ordered after the embassy was attacked? Why did the so called rebels who attacked the embassy yell “Morsi sent us!” Morsi like Obama’s half brother Malik Obama is part of the Muslim Brotherhood. Morsi was installed by the US and the MB as a result of the US-backed MB coup in Egypt only to be deposed by Egypt two months later. The truth is that Christopher Stephens knew too much about the state department and the illegal arms shipments and had to be eliminated. The truth is that these illegal shipments of arms came directly from a CIA cut-out company here in the US. Shipped to Benghazi => Turkey => Syria to be used against Syria’s Assad. The US has been, and continues to use ISIS (aka Al-Qaeda) as a US proxy force to destabilize countries in this region.

ISIS: U.S. Sanctioned and Approved

THE MOTIVES: Saudi Arabia and Qatar didn’t want Iran and Syria to build a proposed pipeline between Iran and Syria which would have been competition to the House of Saud and Qatar. House of Saud didn’t like Syria’s Assad because he is Alawite not Sunni. Most of Syria (64%) is Sunni. Interesting note: Muslims, Jews and Christians have lived and worked in relative peace together in Syria for 200 years. Also, it is important to note that the US Geopolitical strategy was to destabilize the Middle East which included Syria so the Saudi and US State Department were in complete agreement that Assad had to go.

THE CRIME: Follow the money aka the weapons:

  1. A US Company (actually run by the CIA) covertly and illegally shipped arms under the direction of the CIA and the State Department from the US to Benghazi.
  2. Turkey and others shipped the arms from Benghazi to Turkey (a US NATO ally) and Jordan. BTW Turkey doesn’t wipe their arse without permission from the US.
  3. US Ambassador, Christopher Stevens found out about the illegal arms trafficking from a US Company and alerted the State Department not knowing that the CIA and the State Department were the ones actually running this covert and very illegal operation. Stevens had to be silenced.
  4. The US installed Muslim Brotherhood dictator in Egypt named Morsi, at the request of the US, sent the Muslim Brotherhood into Benghazi to attack the US Libyan Embassy. Interesting to note that the Egyptian people rose up and kicked Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood out of power two months later.
  5. The US State Department ordered a stand-down after the attack on the US Embassy in Benghazi started.
  6. US Ambassador, Christopher Stevens was killed.
  7. Saudi Arabia provided some rebels and some money to help things along
  8. Back in Turkey, the USA trained ‘Al-Qaeda lite’ aka the moderate rebels in the use of these high impact weapons given to them by the US and then sent the rebels into Syria to overthrow Assad. The USA sent these freshly minted ‘Rebels’ into Syria to do what they do best.
  9. John Kerry falsely blamed Assad for gassing his own citizens with zero evidence  to drum up public support for a war on Syria to remove Assad. Subsequent evidence pointed directly back to the US-Backed ‘Al-Qaeda lite’ aka the moderate rebels responsible for releasing the Sarin gas.
  10. John Kerry wanted to start another war with Syria by just lobbing a few bombs over there to punish Assad for poisoning his people. No troops on the ground.
  11. Putin came out strongly against attacking Syria, sent war ships to the area and threatened war if the US attacked.
  12. Putin –being the only adult here– brokered the deal which was stupidly and mistakenly requested by Kerry for Assad to turn over his chemical weapons. This deal took all the air out of Kerry’s sails. Weary of War, the America public was against attacking Syria. The overt war thus never happened but the covert war continues today in earnest giving the US Backed ‘Rebels’ 1/3 of Syria and most of its oil fields.
  13. Saudi Arabia was furious with Kerry and Obama for not following through on attacking Syria as they had agreed.
  14. ‘Bandar Bush’ flew to Moscow, met with Putin and threatened to launch terrorist attacks at the Russian-hosted Olympics if he did not withdraw his opposition to the US attacking Syria. Putin told Bandar Bush to go pound sand. Bandar Bush aka Bandar bin Sultan is a member of the House of Saud and was Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States from 1983 to 2005. In 2005, he was named as secretary general of the National Security Council. GW Bush gave him the nickname of Bandar Bush.
  15. The US Backed Rebels in Syria have now murdered over 300,000 innocent people in Syria, mostly Christians.
  16. The US Backed ‘Rebels’ which were trained armed and financed by the US and Saudi Arabia re-branded themselves as ISIS and then marched into Iraq with the US and Saudi blessings and encouragement. The idea was to divide Iraq up into three separate states, giving Saudi Arabia (Sunni) one; one for the Kurds and one for the Shiites.

Here is some more, “Before The Fact” information to chew upon:

Information from NATO source:

The US weapons that were delivered to the Middle East last December, 2014 via Jordan, Turkey, and the CIA’s Annex, and other CIA safe houses within the Middle east that Ambassador Stevens was concerned about, have now been found in the hands of ISIL as they march forward. These weapons have been ID’ed as coming from shipments via US C-130, civilian registered aircraft, into the region last year. Large quantities have been ID’ed as being inside the Annex at the time of the Benghazi affair. These weapons were delivered to various rebel factions in November of 2013. This was also reported to MSM outlets at the time, but was not considered for press release, and is still not being considered. This, I am being told by military sources, is a very delicate matter and not to be made public. Well DUHH???

Truth in Media: Origin of ISIS

The Covert Origins of ISIS


from Robert Tosh Plumlee dated 6/11/2015 on Facebook…

Yes MAX This was posted over a year ago and was before the fact information. I do stand behind this information today. In fact most of the information has been recently vetted and confirmed by multiple independent sources; I’ll repost it for you again. I understand that some of the vetted information is about to come forth by the end of June this year, 2015, from the Benghazi hearings and the previous Secretary of State’s forced testimony. Time will tell what Gowdy and the Congress and the Senate have in mind. This can only be covered up for so long and then the stink starts to make most American sick:

“.. According to Plumlee, Steven was ordered to stand down after he asked the State Department what he should do about the American arm shipments to al-Qaeda.

“The ambassador and his people had written a series of field reports and cable dispatches advising our State Department that the rebel factions had been armed with U.S. weapons,” he said. “Now my contention is this: if that is the case, why is that classified as a national security matter?”

Plumlee mentioned that Steven’s field notes have not been released by the State Department. ( field note; where are the emails sent to Secretary of State in reference to these activities?)

These revelations suggest that after Stevens told the State Dept. that he did not want al-Qaeda receiving heat seeking missiles, he was killed in the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi which was designed to take out witnesses to the arms transfer and to suppress Stevens’s reports.

The Obama administration then blamed the attack entirely on Islamic protestors enraged by the filmInnocence of Muslims while refusing to answer why U.S. special forces were ordered not to aid Stevens and others during the assault.

The missiles in question, as well as the other weapons given to al-Qaeda, were transported to Libya by C-130s under the Direct Commercial Sales (DCS) program, which operates within the State Department.

As explained by New York Times best-selling author and former journalist Jim Marrs, the DCS program oversees the shipment of U.S. weapons and training to countries around the world.

Through its own internal investigations, the State Dept. admitted that firearms supplied by the DCS have ended up in the hands of foreign enemies.

Tying it all together, Plumlee stated that the weapons given to al-Qaeda were “U.S. made weapons that came from the DCS program, illegally transported by C-130s” into countries such as Turkey and Jordan and were “dispatched from CIA safe houses to the Syrian rebels.”

As we have documented in the past, the Syrian rebels are predominantly al-Qaeda fighters who want to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad in order to install an Islamic state in Syria.

If al-Qaeda controls Syria, other nations could easily take advantage of the ensuring chaos and Syria’s reduced sovereignty by extracting trillions of dollars in oil revenue from the country.

The Syrian rebels led by the Jabhat al-Nusra Front, the direct offshoot of al-Qaeda in Iraq, were described as the “most effective fighting force in Syria” after filling the void left by the secular Free Syrian Army.

Suffering from severe shortages in weapons and supplies, the Free Syrian Army began losing soldiers to the better armed and equipped al-Nusra Front.

Now it is known why the al-Nusra Front, and al-Qaeda worldwide, never seem to lack arms: they are receiving weapon shipments directly from the State Dept.

Update: Oct 11, 2016

The murder of Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi was an organized hit to cover up direct arm deals:

Posted on Facebook by Robert Tosh Plumlee 10/11/16

The following information was BEFORE THE FACT REPORTING which was covered up and discredited at the time by the US State Department and the Obama Administration: (note the date, 2013, of the article: (note as of this date (2016) the information within this article has been confirmed by multiple sources within the intelligence community)

The murder of Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi was an organized hit to cover up direct arm deals:

Kit Daniels
Infowars.com
September 25, 2013

A former CIA gun runner revealed that the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, was killed in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in order to cover up the U.S. State Department’s direct arm shipments to al-Qaeda.

Discussion on Benghazi attack starts around the 37:00 mark.

William Robert “Tosh” Plumlee started his career as a CIA contract pilot in the late 1950s, delivering guns and ammunition on behalf of the agency to Fidel Castro.

Plumlee confirmed that such arm deals are still common today, with the State Dept. shipping arms to al-Qaeda via the CIA.

During an interview with Alex Jones, Plumlee pointed out that Pat Smith, the mother of an information management officer also killed during the Benghazi attack, received little information from the Obama administration about her son’s murder.

“I began to wonder ‘why won’t they tell her anything?’” He asked. “Then a contact of mine in the Middle East, a high-ranking NATO official, mentioned to me that he had reports that the ambassador [J. Christopher Stevens] had been complaining about the dispatches and cables that he had got from the State Department about the weapons being received and [Islamic] radicals armed, including Stinger missiles.”

According to Plumlee, Steven was ordered to stand down after he asked the State Dept. what he should do about the American arm shipments to al-Qaeda.
“The ambassador and his people had written a series of field reports and cable dispatches advising our State Department that the rebel factions had been armed with U.S. weapons,” he said. “Now my contention is this: if that is the case, why is that classified as a national security matter?”

Plumlee mentioned that Steven’s field notes have not been released by the State Dept.

These revelations suggest that after Stevens told the State Dept. that he did not want al-Qaeda receiving heat seeking missiles, he was killed in the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi which was designed to take out witnesses to the arms transfer and to suppress Stevens’s reports.

The Obama administration then blamed the attack entirely on Islamic protestors enraged by the film Innocence of Muslims while refusing to answer why U.S. special forces were ordered not to aid Stevens and others during the assault.

The missiles in question, as well as the other weapons given to al-Qaeda, were transported to Libya by C-130s under the Direct Commercial Sales (DCS) program, which operates within the State Dept.

BACKGROUND HISTORY ON MISSING STINGER MISSILES:

The Stingers of Benghazi: Was the U.S. engaged in gun-running?

National Review 05/24/2013 Jim Geraghty

Posted on 5/24/2013, 2:47:52 PM by SeekAndFind

Earlier this week, Roger L. Simon of PJ Media broke a story with shocking revelations, contending that slain U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens was in Benghazi on September 11 to buy back Stinger missiles from al-Qaeda groups that had been originally provided to them by the U.S. State Department.

Simon cited two former U.S. diplomats:

Stevens’ mission in Benghazi, they will say, was to buy back Stinger missiles from al-Qaeda groups issued to them by the State Department, not by the CIA. Such a mission would usually be a CIA effort, but the intelligence agency had opposed the idea because of the high risk involved in arming “insurgents” with powerful weapons that endanger civilian aircraft.

Hillary Clinton still wanted to proceed because, in part, as one of the diplomats said, she wanted “to overthrow [Qaddafi] on the cheap.”

This left Stevens in the position of having to clean up the scandalous enterprise when it became clear that the “insurgents” actually were al-Qaeda — indeed, in the view of one of the diplomats, the same group that attacked the consulate and ended up killing Stevens.

A careful review of reports from Libya over the past few years corroborates some parts of that account, but contradicts others:

Some Libyan rebel leaders, including at least one who had spent time in a training camp in Afghanistan and who was in that country in September 2001, specifically asked Western countries to send Stinger missiles.

Qaddafi’s intelligence services believed that the rebels were having the missiles smuggled in over the country’s southern border — but they believed the French were supplying the missiles.

There is no evidence that the U.S. supplied the weapons, but it appears they gave their blessing to a secret Qatari effort to ship arms across Libya’s southern border in violation of a United Nations arms embargo.

Anti-Qaddafi forces also obtained a significant number of anti-aircraft missiles from the regime’s bunkers early in the conflict.

Enough Stinger missiles disappeared from regime stockpiles during the civil war to become a high priority and serious worry for the administration.

(Note that in much of the coverage of Libya, “Stinger” has turned into a catch-all term for any shoulder-mounted anti-aircraft missile.)

To save Eric Holder and the Department of Justice the trouble of reading my e-mail or collecting my phone records, all of the information in this report is gathered from public and open sources, both in the U.S. and overseas, and none of it can be considered classified or sensitive.

Before the war, Qaddafi’s regime in Libya possessed more of these kinds of missiles than did any other country except where they’re produced. On April 7, 2011, General Carter Ham, then recently promoted to head of U.S. Africa Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that “we do estimate that there were as many as 20,000 of these types of weapons in Libya before the conflict began.”

In March 2011, Ambassador Chris Stevens became the official U.S. liaison to the Libyan opposition. He first entered Benghazi on April 5, 2011, joined by a USAID team, while the war was still raging, to meet with rebel leaders.

On March 2, 2011, Mike Elkin of Wired reported as rebel forces cleaned out the Salmani weapons-maintenance depot in Benghazi, and mentioned “30-year-old rockets” and “anti-aircraft weapons.”

Ben Knight, a foreign correspondent with the Australian Broadcasting Company, said on a program a few days later (March 7, 2011) that the rebels had shown him Stinger missiles:

TONY EASTLEY: And I guess on top of that, Ben, the rebels really are not as well armed as the government forces?

BEN KNIGHT: Well, clearly not. . . . What they do have we saw some Stinger missiles today, which are missiles that are capable of locking onto a jet fighter and shooting it down. In fact, they are claiming to have shot down another jet fighter today as well as another helicopter.

By July 2011, C. J. Chivers of the New York Times reported on more anti-aircraft missiles’ being removed from storage bunkers in Ga’a, Libya: On a recent day, 43 emptied wooden crates — long, thin and painted in dark green — had been left behind on the sand inside the entrance. The boxes had not been there during a visit to the same spot a few days before, and the weapons were gone.

The stenciled markings showed each crate had contained a pair of lightweight missiles called SA-7s — early Soviet versions of the same class of weapon as the better known American-made Stingers, which were used by Afghan fighters against the Soviets in Afghanistan. It was not clear who had taken them. The rebel guards variously blamed Qaddafi forces and misinformed opposition fighters.

Interviews with anti-Qaddafi leaders at the time indicated that one of their top priorities was obtaining anti-aircraft missiles. In light of the PJ Media report’s claims, one of the most intriguing reports from this time period is a March 11, 2011, Canadian Globe and Mail article that interviewed insurgent leader Abdul Hakim Al-Hasadi:

“We need Stingers,” he said, referring to shoulder-mounted missiles. “We don’t need your stupid words.” . . .

Abdul Hakim Al-Hasadi, 45, [was] recently appointed chief of security in the rebel-controlled town of Darnah. Al-Hasadi says he taught history and geography at a local high school until 1995, when he escaped Libya and spent a few years travelling. He finally settled in Afghanistan in 1999. He acknowledged that he lived in a camp and received training in guerrilla warfare, but would not say who controlled the facility.

The rebel commander said he witnessed the awe-inspiring power of U.S. air strikes when bombs hit Taliban and al-Qaeda positions in 2001. “We felt extreme rage,” he said. “They were killing women and children. It made us hate the United States.”

Hasadi was detained as a hostile combatant by U.S. forces in 2002, according to an interview he gave with an Italian newspaper: “I’ve never been in Guantanamo. I was captured in 2002 in Peshawar, Pakistan, while returning from Afghanistan where I fought against foreign invasion. I was handed over to the Americans, held a few months in Islamabad, delivered to Libya, and released in 2008.”

Hasadi was not the only rebel leader imploring the West for Stinger missiles. A March 23, 2011, Reuters report quoted Fawzi Buktif, described as “an oil project engineer” then running “a training base outside Benghazi,” as saying, “We need Kalashnikovs, stingers, anti-tanks, all types of anti-tanks.”

Despite all the focus on anti-aircraft missiles, the Libyan Air Force ceased to be a significant factor in the war in March 2011. The United Kingdom’s Air Vice Marshal Greg Bagwell declared March 23 that the Libyan Air Force “no longer exists as a fighting force” and that NATO forces now flew over Libyan airspace “with impunity.”

Despite Libya being awash in anti-aircraft missiles, not many were fired at NATO aircraft:

A senior U.S. military officer who follows Libya closely said it was puzzling that there had been so few documented instances in which Libyan loyalist troops launched shoulder-fired missiles at NATO aircraft.

“I’m not sure what that means,” the officer said. “Fewer systems than we thought? Systems are inoperable? Few in Libya know how to operate them?”

Throughout the war, Qaddafi’s regime believed some outside force was supplying the rebels with anti-aircraft weapons. On September 2, 2011, the Wall Street Journal’s Charles Levinson and Margaret Coker managed to obtain the regime’s intelligence files about the rebellion, recovered from the office of Libya’s spy chief and two other security agencies.

By April, the war was expanding and so was the sense of panic inside Tripoli. Mr. Senussi’s [the Libyan spy chief] office did get apparently credible information, but the news was ominous. The reports suggested that the rebels were exploiting the country’s porous southern borders to receive arms and aid.

One memo contained intercepted phone calls between military commanders in Chad who reported Qatari weapons convoys approaching Libya’s southern border with Sudan, apparently intended for anti-[Qaddafi] forces. Another intelligence memo, dated April 4, warned that French weapons, including Stinger antiaircraft missiles and Milan antitank rockets, were making their way to Libyan rebels via Sudan.

French officials declined to comment on the document’s claims. Qatari officials didn’t return email requests for comment.

These Qatari weapons convoys were, in fact approved by the Obama administration, according to the New York Times:

The Obama administration secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year, but American officials later grew alarmed as evidence grew that Qatar was turning some of the weapons over to Islamic militants, according to United States officials and foreign diplomats. . . .

The United States, which had only small numbers of C.I.A. officers in Libya during the tumult of the rebellion, provided little oversight of the arms shipments. Within weeks of endorsing Qatar’s plan to send weapons there in spring 2011, the White House began receiving reports that they were going to Islamic militant groups. They were “more antidemocratic, more hard-line, closer to an extreme version of Islam” than the main rebel alliance in Libya, said a former Defense Department official.

The Times article stated that “no evidence has emerged linking the weapons provided by the Qataris to the Benghazi attack,” although it’s not clear how anyone could determine that for certain without precise, accurate accounts of the Qatari weapons and the weapons used in the Benghazi attack.

The Obama administration’s approval of these arms shipments almost certainly violated United Nations Security Council Resolution 1970, adopted February 26, 2011, which required all member states to “prevent the direct or indirect supply, sale or transfer” of weapons to any party in Libya.

Qaddafi’s forces sought to restock their supply of these missiles during the conflict. In mid July 2011, his regime met with Chinese officials, seeking to purchase $200 million worth of sophisticated weapons, including portable surface-to-air missiles.

Some number of the missiles, perhaps a significant portion, left the country. At least one foreign-intelligence source stated that branches of al-Qaeda were obtaining surface-to-air missiles in Libya. In April 2011, Reuters quoted an Algerian security official who claimed that al-Qaeda was smuggling missiles out of Libya:

The official said a convoy of eight Toyota pick-up trucks left eastern Libya, crossed into Chad and then Niger, and from there into northern Mali where in the past few days it delivered a cargo of weapons . . . al Qaeda’s north African wing, known as al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), had acquired from Libya Russian-made shoulder-fired Strela surface-to-air missiles known by the NATO designation SAM-7.

In October 2011, a Turkish journalist reported that Egyptian security forces had impeded an effort to smuggle Libyan SA-7 missiles through tunnels leading to the Gaza Strip, and expressed fears that the Kurdish separatist group was attempting to obtain them. Shoulder-mounted missiles were also leaving Libya and ending up in the hands of Somali pirates, according to an April 2012 report:

“We found that Libyan weapons are being sold in what is the world’s biggest black market for illegal gun smugglers, and Somali pirates are among those buying from sellers in Sierra Leone, Liberia and other countries,” said Judith van der Merwe, of the Algiers-based African Centre for the Study and Research on Terrorism.

“We believe our information is credible and know that some of the pirates have acquired ship mines, as well as Stinger and other shoulder-held missile launchers,” Van der Merwe told Reuters on the sidelines of an Indian Ocean naval conference.

By early September 2011, experts on the ground were concluding that “hundreds, if not thousands of surface-to-air missiles were missing,” and Peter Bouckaert, Human Rights Watch’s emergencies director, was telling foreign correspondents that “if these weapons fall into the wrong hands, all of North Africa will be a no-fly zone.”

By late September, the highest levels of the U.S. government began focusing on the disappearing missiles and the threat they presented. Brian Ross of ABC News:

The White House announced today it planned to expand a program to secure and destroy Libya’s huge stockpile of dangerous surface-to-air missiles, following an ABC News report that large numbers of them continue to be stolen from unguarded military warehouses.

Currently the U.S. State Department has one official on the ground in Libya, as well as five contractors who specialize in “explosive ordinance disposal”, all working with the rebel Transitional National Council to find the looted missiles, White House spokesperson Jay Carney told reporters.

On October 23, 2011, Con Coughlin of the Daily Telegraph reported that the Central Intelligence Agency was on the ground in Libya in the effort to recover the missiles:

Since [Qaddafi]’s regime fell in late August teams of CIA officers, supported by other intelligence services such as Britain’s MI6, have been scouring Libya in search of the missing missiles. Their main target is the thousands of shoulder-fired, surface-to-air missiles [Qaddafi] bought from Moscow during the past decade which, were they to fall into the wrong hands, would pose a massive security risk.

We now know that a significant portion of the U.S. presence in Benghazi was CIA employees. Reuters quoted unidentified government officials who said the annex’s mission was “collecting information on the proliferation of weaponry looted from Libyan government arsenals, including surface-to-air missiles.”

In February 2012, Andrew Shapiro, then assistant secretary of state for political-military affairs, declared in a speech that the U.S. and the new Libyan government had recovered and secured “approximately 5,000” anti-aircraft missiles. In May 2012, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius detailed the claims of two former CIA counterterrorism officers that about 800 of the missiles were in Niger, which borders Libya to the southwest, in the hands of an African jihadist group called Boko Haram that’s based in Nigeria.

There is significant reason to believe that both Stevens and the CIA personnel in Benghazi were focused on recovering the missiles in the days leading up to his death on September 11.

After the Benghazi attack, there were public reports of Libyan arms, including these types of anti-aircraft missiles, being smuggled to the Syrian resistance fighting Bashar Assad’s regime.

On September 14, 2012, three days after Stevens was killed, Sheera Frenkel, a correspondent for the Times of London, reported from Antakya, Turkey:

A Libyan ship carrying the largest consignment of weapons for Syria since the uprising began has docked in Turkey and most of its cargo is making its way to rebels on the front lines, The Times has learnt.

Among more than 400 tonnes of cargo the vessel was carrying were SAM-7 surface-to-air anti-aircraft missiles and rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs), which Syrian sources said could be a game-changer for the rebels.

Frenkel’s report identified the ship’s captain as “Omar Mousaeeb, a Libyan from Benghazi and the head of an organisation called the Libyan National Council for Relief and Support, which is supporting the Syrian uprising.” This was not the first attempt to ship arms from Libya to the Syrian rebels, apparently: In late April, Lebanese authorities seized a large consignment of Libyan weapons, including RPGs and heavy ammunition, from a ship intercepted in the Mediterranean. The ship was attempting to reach the Lebanese port city of Tripoli, a largely Sunni city seen as supportive of the Syrian rebellion against President Assad.

In October 17, 2012, about one month after the ship docked in Turkey, Reuters reported, “Amateur footage of rebels using shoulder-mounted surface-to-air missiles have emerged in recent days.” About a week later, Russia’s top military officer, accused the United States of providing American-made Stinger missiles to the Syrian rebels, a charge the Pentagon and State Department denied.

The American government may not have directed the smuggling of weapons from Libya to Syria through Turkey — but there is evidence to suggest they were aware of it. In June 2012, the New York Times’ Eric Schmitt reported that the CIA had personnel in Syria monitoring, and perhaps assisting, the Syrian rebels’ efforts to obtain weapons in Turkey:

A small number of C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey, helping allies decide which Syrian opposition fighters across the border will receive arms to fight the Syrian government, according to American officials and Arab intelligence officers.

The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the officials said.

The C.I.A. officers have been in southern Turkey for several weeks, in part to help keep weapons out of the hands of fighters allied with Al Qaeda or other terrorist groups, one senior American official said.

A March 2013 follow-up report by Schmitt and C. J. Chivers detailed the CIA’s assistance to Arab governments’ efforts to help Syria’s rebels: “The airlift, which began on a small scale in early 2012 and continued intermittently through last fall, expanded into a steady and much heavier flow late last year.” The vast majority of the cargo flights of arms and equipment went through Esenboga Airport near Ankara, Turkey.

Was Chris Stevens’s “mission in Benghazi” to buy back weapons? Stevens’s planned agenda for his scheduled five-day stay in Benghazi, according to GQ, included plans to “rechristen the U.S.-managed compound ‘an American Space,’ offering local Libyans English lessons and Internet access and show films and stock a library.”

But his final act as ambassador, on the early evening of September 11, 2012, was a meeting with Ali Sait Akin, the Turkish consul general in Benghazi.

For what it’s worth, the Turkish diplomat denies that he discussed arms transfers with Stevens. He told syndicated columnist Diana West that they didn’t talk about “weaponry from the [Qaddafi] stockpiles and where they might be going; the Libyan flagged vessel al-Entisaar which was received in the port of Iskenderun on September 6, 2012; the conflict in Syria and how the opposition to President Assad could be supported by the US and Turkey.”

During former secretary of state Hillary Clinton’s testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Senator Rand Paul asked her if the U.S. was involved in any way in the transfer of weapons from Libya to Turkey.

“To Turkey? . . . Nobody’s ever raised that with me,” Clinton responded. When Paul asked whether the annex, the installation to which Americans fled on the night of the Benghazi attack, was involved, she said, “Senator, you’ll have to direct that question to the agency that ran the annex. I do not know.”

Since last autumn, Syria’s rebels have grown bolder in their use of anti-aircraft weapons in that country’s civil war. In late March, Syrian rebels claimed they shot down an Iranian plane landing at Damascus airport that was suspected of carrying weapons and ammunition for the Syrian government. In late April, Russia’s Interfax news agency claimed that two rockets were fired at a Russian charter plane as it flew over Syria. The plane flew from the resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, to Kazan in Tartarstan, Russia, with 200 passengers on board. On May 8, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that the rebels had shot down a fighter jet.

These published reports indicate a sequence of events less incendiary than the one described by Simon’s sources, but still troubling:

During the Libyan civil war, the United States government at least tacitly supported the Qatari effort to arm the rebels, in violation of a U.N. arms embargo. The Obama administration later learned that the weapons were going to Islamists, and acknowledged that the postwar situation of unguarded stockpiles presented an enormous security threat to the region. The CIA was the centerpiece of an effort to recover these weapons, and that was indeed a major component of what the agency was doing in Benghazi in September 2012, in part using the State Department’s facilities. During this time, a large number of weapons, including anti-aircraft missiles, were leaving Libya and arriving in Turkey en route to Syrian rebels — and the CIA had personnel in both countries assigned to monitor and assist the arms shipments.

In his February 2012 speech discussing the effort to recover the anti-aircraft missiles in Libya, Assistant Secretary Shapiro made an unnerving concession: “How many are still missing? The frank answer is we don’t know and probably never will.”

That frank answer probably applies to the weapons flowing into Syria, too.
