Affair? Alleged cover up of attacks against U.S. mission in Benghazi? Neither excuse is likely the reason behind David Petraeus’ resigination

Perhaps being overlooked is the CIA’s role in using the Benghazi mission to coordinate U.S. aid to opposition insurgent groups acting in Syria amid information those same insurgents significantly consist of jihadists, including al-Qaida groups.

KleinOnline  One week before he was slated to testify before Congress on the Benghazi debacle, Petraeus on Friday night announced his resignation citing an extramarital affair.

Rep. Peter King, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman, charged in an interview with CNN that Petraeus is “at the center of this, and there are answers that only he has.”  King was referring to the Benghazi attacks. Asked if he will still call for Petraeus testify despite his resignation, Rep. King replied, “Absolutely, to me, he’s an absolutely necessary witness.”

That Benghazi compound is repeatedly referred by the news media to as a “consulate.” However, as KleinOnline reported the building was not a consulate and at no point functioned as one, according to informed Middle East security officials. Instead, the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi served as a meeting place to coordinate aid for the rebel-led insurgencies in the Middle East, the security officials said. Among the tasks performed inside the building was collaborating with Arab countries on the recruitment of fighters – including jihadists – to target Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria.

The US mission in Libya’s eastern city of Benghazi that came under attack in September was mainly a secret Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operation, a report says. The Wall Street Journal said in a report on Friday that of the 30 US officials evacuated from Benghazi after the attack, only seven worked for the State Department, highlighting that the mission was mainly a CIA operation.
The report added that the two security contractors who were killed in the incident — former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty — were working for the CIA and not the State Department.

The distinction may help explain why there was no major public security presence at what has been described as a “consulate.” Such a presence would draw attention to the shabby, nondescript building that was allegedly used for such sensitive purposes. U.S. officials have been more careful in their rhetoric while not contradicting the media narrative that a consulate was attacked. The State Department website lists no consulate in Benghazi.

The British left their weapons and vehicles in the hands of the U.S. mission in Eastern Libya. The information came to light from testimony by Lt. Col. Wood during the House hearings last week. The U.S. administration not only failed to protect U.S. personnel, sensitive documents and equipment, they also failed to protect British weapons.

Last month, the State Department gave a vivid account of Stevens’ final day during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. It was disclosed that about an hour before the attack began, Stevens concluded his final meeting of the day with a Turkish diplomat. Turkey has been leading the insurgency against Assad’s regime.

In September, KleinOnline broke the story that Stevens played a central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Assad’s regime in Syria, according to Egyptian security officials.

Stevens served as a key contact with the Saudis to coordinate the recruitment by Saudi Arabia of Islamic fighters from North Africa and Libya. The jihadists were sent to Syria via Turkey to attack Assad’s forces, said the security officials. The officials said Stevens also worked with the Saudis to send names of potential jihadi recruits to U.S. security organizations for review. Names found to be directly involved in previous attacks against the U.S., including in Iraq and Afghanistan, were ultimately not recruited by the Saudis to fight in Syria, said the officials.

Al-Qaida among U.S.-supported rebels

As KleinOnline reported, questions remain about the nature of U.S. support for the revolutions in Egypt and Libya, including reports the U.S.-aided rebels that toppled Muammar Gadhafi’s regime in Libya consisted of al-Qaida and jihad groups. The U.S. provided direct assistance, including weapons and finances, to the Libyan rebels.

Similarly, the Obama administration is currently aiding the rebels fighting Assad’s regime in Syria amid widespread reports that al-Qaida jihadists are included in the ranks of the Free Syrian Army. Earlier this month, Obama announced $50 million more in aid to the Syrian rebels.

In August, KleinOnline quoted a senior Syrian source claiming at least 500 hardcore mujahedeen from Afghanistan, many of whom were spearheading efforts to fight the U.S. there, were killed in clashes with Syrian forces last month. Also, Jihadiya Salafia in the Gaza Strip, a group that represents al-Qaida in the coastal territory, had declared three days of mourning for its own jihadists who died in Syria in recent weeks.

There have been widespread reports of al-Qaida among the Syrian rebels, including in reports by Reuters and the New York Times. NY Times Quoting Officials: Petraeus Deeply Involved in Supplying Gunmen in Syria

KleinOnline reported in May there was growing collaboration between the Syrian opposition and al-Qaida as well as evidence the opposition is sending weapons to jihadists in Iraq, according to an Egyptian security official. READ MORE

  1. Yeah obummer boy was trying to be coy, didn’t work I suspect. The real untold news is, Mr. Petraeus found out, not only was the obummer boy arming our enemies, I suspect he was none to pleased about it, and decided to resign over it. Now, this is the question, is this regime going to allow him to survive long enough for the story to be told, the news currently is, he will not testify before the Senate commitee, they do have supeona power you know, that is not something, after having retired form the agency (CIA) he can withstand, only thing is, and it moght hurt his case, he’ll have no access to classified ‘current’ intel, but he knows where the bodies are hidden and I would like to believe he will stand tall and deliver to the American people mr. obummer boy’s head on a silver platter, with a smile on his face, preferably.

  2. @spartacus Yes he is gutting the military , but there are over 5 million active duty and past veterans of the armed forces in this country.
    And we are all connected by friendships and memberships in veterans orgs.
    We are good to go if the citizens of this country give us the call.

    Obastard better not kid himself if he thinks he can tear up the constittuion and end this country as we know it.
    It’s bad enough this election may have been stolen by the wholesale illegal participation of illegal aliens supported and organized by Valerie Jarret and other assorted scumshit of Husseins Administration.

    Pray for America and STAND FAST !

  3. I finally had to drop one of my oldest friends because her adoration of Obama makes me not trust her anymore. Love is blind, I guess. I can’t trust anyone who would put her full faith and trust in a politician, esp. Obama.

    • Pavelina, I broke my long friendship with my college best friend when I found out she supported Obama back in ”08. That, plus she was offended by my blog. All these years, we avoided talking politics because I was as apolitical as they come. After 9/11, everything changed.

      • Bonni
        As you well know I do have rather strong belief in the Lord. In my family I have a daughter in-law that has became a humanist, this transpired years ago when she and my son moved to another state. They have since divorced and she has raised 4 of my Grand Children as Atheists. I have warned her of her folly but she prefers to move in circles that require no responsibility for one’s actions. She and the children are so vain and caught up in superfluous nonsense that they could not see a train coming at them even if they were on the tracks looking in the direction it is approaching from.
        So, each of us has made choices that have opened gaps from family and friends. My daughter-in-law doesn’t like the things I send her, and would like for me not to send them. I say if you don’t like it defriend me. But it’s your action not mine.

  4. I strongly suggest the he get some heavy security !!! on another note !!! so our elusterious leader is ” in bed” with al -qaida , the muslim brotherhood and no doubt all the other scum bags in the middle east to surround “Israel” and “exrterminate ” them ! seems like it to me !!! , don’t forget people that the catholic church has as much interest in ” jerusalem ” as the muslims do , do not think for a moment that europe is not watching what these ” scumbags in washington are doing ! , they are setting the middle east on fire with this “califate” bullshit and it will come at them also !!!!!! , do not be surprised that behind the scenes the europeans are ” alarmed” by this ” trechery” by washington and it comes back to seriously “fuck” this country !!!, remember “barry ‘ with the “flexibility bullshit with putin!!! , they are trying to surround “Israel ” and since we no longer ” back ” Israel they will by default work with the ” church and by extension europe ” to secure ” jerusalem ” before the muslims get their hands on it ( remember the crusades ) , good old ”barry ” is about to get this country into a conflict that is going to” bring the pain ” on this nation is some very horrific times !!!!!!! , and we will be caught defenseless because of what he has done to the military !!!!!!!

    • “we will be caught defenseless because of what he has done to the military”, Well you might think like this and believe it, I beg to differ with the sentiment. He has not yet been able to get it done as of yet, and I really doubt he’s likely to ever get it done. Even if he manages to get this through, sequestration and the one Trillion reduction, over a ten year period, there is nothing that can or will stop the next administration from chopping that from day one. I will also point out, there are more then 21.5 million veterans, retired, active military reserve, active duty, etc, etc. who will not allow either this or the next regime, to allow any invasion, insurrection, or such to take place in our communities. I am but one of thousands who, at current time, is a Commander of what is called the unRegulated Militia’s of these United States and you might be pleasently surprised to know our ranks, total numbers are unknown, but we vastly out number the active duty personnel of these United States, we are self financed, self discipilined, and aware enough of the threat facing this ountry of our to understand, they will catch more then hell if they ever tried it.

      Going GALT.

  5. It just goes from bad to worse this cover up. All the niave idiots of the West think Obumma is this great man who is promoting world peace and he is Mr Nice Guy. My own sister thinks he is great and she plus other friends who love him look at me like Im some lunatic when I say to them he is a Muzzo and whats going on behind the scenes. They keep arguing he is a Christian and has made that known to the world in his grand Taquiyya speeches. I then explained to my sister and her friend what the word Taquiyya means and its sole purpose is too fool non Moslems. They didnt get it but both my sister and her friend are clearly challanged in the intelligence department so explaining the real Obumma is waste if time. They think this sort of thing happens in far fetched Hollywood action movies, not in real life. I will sit back now and let people find out for themselves. In years to come I know I will be told by these very same idiots ” oh no you were right, why didnt I listen this isnt happening!!!”. well you all know what my response will be……. there is no fool like an ignorant fool.

    • I resonate with you AussieHels.

      I have a nephew working and living in the U.S. He put a post on FB celebrating Obama’s win. I replied to it saying The U.S. is f**cked and ran off a number of reasons why including this issue re Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the debt etc…and Obama bowing to the Saudi king for good measure. He promptly de-friended me.

      Before the election I met a man at a wedding I attended. Conversation got onto Obama and said practicably similar content to him. He looks at me in disbelief.

      Another ‘amusing’ situation. There is this FB blog called Anti-republican Crusader I happen to come across. There was a Wall post making fun of right wingers claiming Obama to be a muslim. I replied to it saying “Only a muslim ever bows to the Saudi king”… and their name – including ‘Crusader’ is not an apt name for left wing.
      Went back next day to see what reaction I got. Comments were gone and I have been ‘Blocked’ from any more.
      Oh well!

      • Steve, the reason I started this blog 4 years ago is because I kept getting banned from discussion forums, most of them conservative. And I never posted anything near as shocking/violent/bloody/controversial, etc. that I post here.

      • Doesnt surprise me one bit about FB. I never waste my time on there when it comes to posting anything Muzzo related as its well known that FB is Dhimmi FB. BNI can vouch that FB is pro Muzslume. So much worse gets posted on FB pretty crude pornographic shit for all the little kiddies to see but if anything is posted on there ONLY offending the untouchable inbreeds its removed lightening flash quick.

        Let all the idiots here believe what crap the Lefty media feed them about Obumma when the shit hits the fan and it all unravels as the BNI’ers here in the US say, tell the goons you know “Told you so”. I personally will enjoy telling them and see them running shit scared.

      • I hope you have resolved to bar the doors behind you when it finally does happen, with idiots, especially family member idiots, you damn sure don’t have a need for more enemies looking to grub off of you when they can’t or won’t do it for themselves at this time. Sometimes, reality is the best educator. Going GALT.

  6. Make no mistake, the POTUS is in league with the Muslim Brotherhood. Huma Abedin is the MB’s agent at the State Department. There’s going to be a tug-o-war between Cairo and Istanbul (my early favorites) for the title of capital of the neo-caliphate.

    “The mosques are our barracks,
    the domes are our helmets,
    the minarets are our swords,
    and the faithful are our army.”

    • ” and guess what? the majority don’t, nor do they care”. The folly of these people will not hit them personally until, a) the cloward-piven strategy if fully implimented, and they have no means or available resources to withstand the onslaught of moochers and looters, b) they will deny, much like the demonrat party did at their convention, thrice, denied God, Israel, or our own heritage and where it came from, and be forced to take note of their error, but by then it will be too late for them to do anything about it other then to suffer right along with, I suspect many millions of others of like minds, or c) they’ll be dying in great numbers just to prove they were correct, and of course, it WILL be the Republican’s fault, no matter what excuses they come to, no one to blame for their fate other then themselves, so yeah you are correct, the majority don’t nor do they care.

      Two days before the election, I ask a aquaitence of the Bengazi incident, his response: I don’t know the man!. That was ALL I needed to know, just added this person to keep an eye on when the SHTF.

      • Ret Marine I agree with much of what you say, however much of this garbage that we are living thru now is because we relinquished our children’s education to the Teachers Unions since the 50″s. They have poisoned their minds and have allowed the rewriting of our history with the lies and distortions that we now see in our own youth. We are responsible. We trusted the Gov. after WWII. What a mistake.
        We need to take our children back. We need to place the blame for the lies at the feet of the Government and the apostils of the LEFT. We can no longer give them our children to mold them into un-recognizable takers.
        We will eventually have to use the 2nd amendment to rid ourselves of the Tyrants in DC and Throughout our government. Go for those that have stolen our freedoms, our children’s minds and the Constitution when it is time. Not the man in the street for they are for smoke and mirrors.

  7. Petreaus is being blackmailed to try to keep him from testifying. The “FBI” discovered his affair 1 year ago. It’s just coming up now? There are no coincidences! Today I captured video of Rep Trey Gowdy stating that Petreaus will testify to the House either voluntary or by subpoena. The House committees have
    subpoena (or a least some do) power. Remember what Valerie Jarrett said before the election? regarding anyone who wasn’t with them?

  8. confusling? naot anymore. the whole thing is to reestablish the mulsim Caliphate and the ottoman Empire and by keeping obama in the White house and by saying America is the largest muslim nation in the world and saying at the UN the futute must not belong to those who slander Islam he has made perfectly clear what will happen next.
    when obama said the best is yet to come what do you think he was taling about?
    the destruction of the US

    • Exactly. Obama was re-elected because he is just the man to push America off the financial cliff and gut the military (yes stupid Americans voted for him in droves but there was massive voter fraud, Obama’s creators would NEVER let a pro-American take the presidency now). Once America’s economy has been decimated and whatever is left of the military is armed with plastic forks and knives, his Communist and Muslim buddies/family will be free to pursue their evil ways and America and her allies will be left unprotected, unable to defend themselves, and it will be painful, bloody and hell on earth.

      This is just another bump in the road for Obama, I am sure he will find a catchy phrase to plaster on a mug to sell online, arrogantly mocking those who dare accuse him of treason. He will laugh, the lap dog media will join in…this whole thing will be swept under the rug as was Fast and Furious. Shiny object, another golf game, more honorable men in uniform dragged through the streets for ‘offending’ the weakest and most perverted false ‘prophet’ of all time.

      Now that Obama is truly unaccountable, I am absolutely terrified.

  9. If we are supporting Al Qaida Then HIGH TREASON MUST BE CHARGED, SEDITION AT THE LEAST. The law cannot continue to ignore this blatant action by the Trinity of Evil; BO, HAJI HILLARY and PANETTA.

  10. State denied and ignored repeated requests for increased security at the ‘mission.’ Requests for military assistance during the attacks, were denied by the POTUS. Panetta and Rice spin the cover-up. Hildebeest flies below the radar on a visit to Peru to talk “Womens Empowerment??” Does she work for State or NOW? Petraeus gets thrown under the bus. Valerie Jarrett pulls the strings. Jimmy Claptrapper is sent to his room for an extended stay. UBL is dead, al-Qeada is defeated, nothing to see here. End of story.

  11. I distinctly remember hearing or reading early in this mess that among the attackers of the consulate or whatever that building was, one of them shouted at another – “Don’t shoot at me. Morsi sent us.”

    I also recall sitting up during the days when Obama and Clinton were screaming that
    Mubarak must leave now, Now NOW that Obama said, “The new government in Egypt should have a religious component.” And the only organized group that would fit that was the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Now the Egyptian army could easily have stopped the Brotherhood or even any elections but Obama told them they’d have to have elections or he’d cut them off. His monthly allowance keeps those kids in tow. When the wild ones started to attack the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and Morsi just sat there, Obama called him and they immediately stopped the attack. Morsi, in the meantime is very ambitious to develop co-operation between Iran and the Saudis and Turks for an overall Caliphate to run the Israelis into the sea and the question is, to what degree is this the same goal of Obama’s.

    • Congrads for seeing the true pictire. A former roommate of his highassed pretender-n-theif was a convert by the name of Khalidi, who just happens to be the very person who talked for hours, as he proclaimed, about the palestanian solution, and what was needed to resolve it. Unfortunately, for us and the world surrounding God’s people, Israel, these two were not kidding as to their solutions. It will be soon enough we witness the consolidation of the words of the Christian Bible, the fullfillment of the “Nations of the North” surrounding the Israeli’s, then comes the attack, which by the way the same book foretells, the fowl of the air will feast for a period of a year, that it will take that long to bury their dead, the numbers will be like nothing ever witnessed before upon this earth, an dih did I mention it was this same fellow brother from their hood, islam, who was a pal of the one of king abduallah nephew, recently passed on, who financed obama’s bin lyn’ to everyone, education?

      Going GALT

  12. Something sure as heck smells like a skunk. Why is this the only higher government official ever to be fired for cheating on a spouse? They don’t want him telling what “Really” happened. Please, presidents have cheated and they kept their jobs. I’m not saying cheating is okay, It is not, but why this guy is getting thrown under the bus for cheating, we know good and well that is not the reason
