While so many rumors, accusations, and scandals surround the 2013 incident in Benghazi where a number of U.S. ambassadorial staff as well as Ambassador Chris Stevens were murdered by Islamic extremists, the question almost always arises “How much was known about Stevens’ mission of supporting terrorists in Syria and who knew it?”
While discussion of how Stevens was killed, how he was killed, or if anyone knew what was going to happen to Stevens is outside of the scope of this article, the question of whether or not it was known that Stevens was essentially working as a conduit between terrorists in Libya and those in Syria, as well as a facilitator of arms to those terrorists, is well worth mentioning. Indeed, it is important to note that documents obtained by Judicial Watch from the Department of Defense and Department of State reveal that the Obama administration as well as the State Department, i.e. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, were all well aware of the fact that weapons were being shipped to terrorists in Syria via Benghazi, Libya.
One such document which was obtained from the Department of Defense, more specifically the Defense Intelligence Agency was dated October, 2012 and stated clearly that not only were weapons being shipped to Syria but that the shipments themselves were being monitored.
Weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the Port of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The weapons shipped during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s, and 125 mm and 155mm howitzers missiles.
During the immediate aftermath of, and following the uncertainty caused by, the downfall of the ((Qaddafi)) regime in October 2011 and up until early September of 2012, weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles located in Benghazi, Libya were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the ports of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The Syrian ports were chosen due to the small amount of cargo traffic transiting these two ports. The ships used to transport the weapons were medium-sized and able to hold 10 or less shipping containers of cargo.
. . . . .
The weapons shipped from Syria during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s and 125mm and 155mm howitzers missiles. The numbers for each weapon were estimated to be: 500 Sniper rifles, 100 RPG launchers with 300 total rounds, and approximately 400 howitzers missiles [200 ea – 125mm and 200ea – 155 mm.]
In addition, the documents are a direct contradiction to the testimony of a number of American officials, including Hillary Clinton herself, who claimed in sworn public testimony that the U.S. had no role in the arming and support of the Syrian “rebels” early on in the Syrian crisis.
For instance, Clinton herself claimed she had no knowledge of any such program when she was questioned by Senator Rand Paul at a Congressional hearing in 2013. The exchange went as follows:
RAND PAUL: It has been in news reports that ships have been leaving from Libya and they might have weapons. What I would like to know, is the annex that was close by [in Benghazi]. Were they involved with procuring, buying, selling, obtaining weapons, and were any of these weapons being transferred to other countries — to any countries, Turkey included.
HILLARY CLINTON: Senator, you’ll have to direct that question to the agency that ran the annex. I will see what information is available.
RAND PAUL: You’re saying you don’t know.
HILLARY CLINTON: I do not now. I don’t have any information on that.
Although the document did not specify that the United States was the responsible party regarding organizing the weapons shipments or that it had a direct role in facilitating them (the responsible party is redacted), it does make clear that the United States was aware of and monitoring these shipments. At the very least, this proves that Clinton’s testimony is false. At worst, it adds to the pile of evidence that the United States was not only a supporter but the architect of the Syrian crisis from day one.

Some day, hopefully soon, someone will do a study and write a book about her lying techniques. she’s good, REALLY good!!!
I think back about the lying about being under gunfire on the tarmac in Bosnia, how she repeated it over and over, and even when caught still lying about “…that’s they way she remembered it!” BC rationalized that she was asked the question when she was awakened at 3AM, but she kept repeating it all day everyday!
She’s been caught in another series of lies recently and has attributed it to being “short circuited”!
I ask America, WTF?!!!
Well, several folks have, in fact, written extensively detailed tell-alls all about Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Crime Family. One of them, a 54 year old fellow named Thorn, was murdered a few days ago. Expose the truth, the organized crime families kill you.
You are correct and insightful about an issue that most under-informed and plains stupid Americans refuse to believe. Shes pathological — criminal sociopath and the voter supporting her are delusional.
You are absolutely correct. People think what the want to think regardless of the facts.
Thanks for the info, sorry I asked. Now days, it’s scary to even question. God, how did we get this far afield?
By ignoring the truth as it fits our fancy.
So? Lies are only bad if “the other guy” does it!
In all other cases, it is not the truth of the statement, but the seriousness of the charge that counts!
Her and that horndawg hubby know only lies. She is an ugly biped of the idiopathic kind.
And Americans want that slimy, scheming, murderous, lying piece of human waste to be the next president? My, how far the US has fallen! It is actually beyond redemption and degraded to the point of human sewage.
Hillary Clinton has left behind her a trail of death and destruction from Waco to Benghazi. She was the one who pressured her husband to resolve the Waco stand off, which resulted in the massacre of innocent persons by the FBI at Waco. She and Madaline Albright played a large role leading to the NATO bombing of Serbia. As Secretary of State, she destroyed Libya and then turned her sights on Syria. She and CIA Director, David Petraeus organized an illegal arms smuggling operation in Benghazi to arm the anti-Assad terrorists in Syria. Many of these terrorists were the same Al Qaeda forces used by the CIA to destroy Libya. As documented in “CIA: Crime Incorporated of America”, Hillary and Bill Clinton and Barak Obama are all “deep cover” CIA agents. This explains why they can litterly “get away with murder.”
Guns for drugs – it’s the American way. She is the worst of the worst and a coke head with severe symptoms of strokes.
suggestion : ‘Barry and the Boys’ – Dennis Hopsicker – from Cuba to Mena, poor Barry thought he could tell the white house off. RIP.
Shipping weapons to terrorists in Syria is an international war crime; yet, the Ziocon media won’t touch the story because it would implicate Obama and John McCain and his ISIS friends. Both Reps and Dems were involved in WAR CRIMES.
Obama is the father of ISIS and Hillary is the mother of ISIS.
And they’re both gay….go figure?
Maybe it was in vitro fertilization.
