A Citizens’ Commission On Benghazi Just Released Their Interim Report. These Are The Results

Has the Obama administration switched sides in the War on Terror, providing arms and aid to militants linked to al Qa’eda? This conclusion was strongly hinted at during the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi (CCB) conference held last September to uncover the truth behind the Benghazi, Libya attacks of 2012. “Here’s the sentence, here’s the headline, that the Obama administration does not want broadcast anywhere or printed anywhere: ‘Obama Administration Arms Al Qaeda,’” said Judicial Watch’s Chris Farrell at the time. Farrell’s words would prove prescient.

In its new Interim Report, the product of months of interviews with sources knowledgeable about what was happening in Libya, the CCB uncovers that, indeed, arms were going to al Qa’eda. “The U.S. facilitated the delivery of weapons and military support to al Qa’eda-linked rebels in Libya,” states one of the key findings of the report. The report also includes a summary of the 85 Freedom of Information Act requests submitted by Accuracy in Media (AIM) and the CCB.

There are also Additional Documents, including relevant articles, that support and clarify points made in the Interim Report.

Accuracy in Media and the CCB held a press briefing on Tuesday, April 22nd at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. to release and discuss the Interim Report. Attendees included CNN, The Daily Mail, Fox News, The Washington Free Beacon, World Magazine, WorldNetDaily, and The Daily Caller.

The key findings in the report include that

  • Muammar Qaddafi expressed his willingness to abdicate shortly after the beginning of the 2011 Libyan revolt; but the U.S. ignored his calls for a truce, which led to extensive loss of life (including four Americans), chaos, and detrimental outcomes for U.S. national security objectives across the region.
  • The U.S. facilitated the delivery of weapons and military support to al Qa’eda-linked rebels in Libya.
  • On the day of the attacks in Benghazi, whether or not there was an official order to stand down, the result was the same. There were military assets, for example, at the U.S. base in Sigonella, in Sicily, Italy that could have been brought to bear, and perhaps could have saved the lives of the two men killed at the CIA Annex, the scene of the second attack that night. The failure to attempt to rescue these Americans amounts to a dereliction of duty.
  • Previous investigations have been ineffective as the cover-up of Benghazi continues at all levels of government, prompting the need for a Select Committee with the power of subpoena to investigate this tragedy and compel testimony under oath outside the five-minute rule imposed on Congressional members by the current investigative structure.
  • America needs Congress to form a Select Committee to uncover the facts about Benghazi that remain unavailable to the public, and are obscured by the five-minute rule imposed upon Members of Congress.

Accuracy in Media is pleased to see that some of the news media are choosing to cover this important breaking story. Fox News reported on the press conference, and The Drudge Report linked to The Daily Mail story. A variety of news outlets and alternative media have published articles on the press briefing and the Interim Report, with more to come. Notably absent, though invited, were news organizations such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, NBC, CBS, and ABC.  Here are some of the websites with links to the articles:

    the sad part is that the Obama regime has been doing the same world wide in support of the Muslim agenda even to using US troops and their allies to expand their reach in the Middle East. Look at all the Hillary and now Kerry are doing and have done to advance their agendas affecting Israel, the Syrian civil war that is displacing a fairly stable and accepting regime to be replaced by the radical Muslims. Just like in Egypt Obama did his own best effort to help the Brotherhood expand but the Egyptians removed them with good cause and Obama labels them now as an affront to his efforts and still the congress allows this treason to continue

    From the Benghazi January Report: Page 63: CIA staff (Morell) made changes eliminating "al-Qa'ida" and "Ansar al-Sharia” from the talking points. Obama’s brother received an astounding $8 billion dollar bribe to guarantee that the Sinai Peninsula, be turned over to the muslim brotherhood sister group hamas, to put Israel in an indefensible position. The $8 billion was shared with Ansar al-Sharia, the group that attacked our consulate and CIA Annex. Obama funded the terrorists that killed 4 Americans. This is why everybody is trying to protect obama on Benghazi.
