Update:  On June 17, 2019, two days after this article was published, former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi collapsed and died in an Egyptian courtroom minutes after telling the judge he had “many secrets” he could reveal during his espionage trial.

New information regarding the September 11, 2012 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic outpost and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya and on the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Egypt has been brought forward by former U.S. military personnel who were on duty that fateful night.

Several of these former U.S. service members who witnessed the unfolding events that night reveal that the attackers in Benghazi were led by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force, under the command of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani.

“Qassem Suleimani, a fanatical Islamic revolutionary, has rapidly become one of the world’s top terrorist suspects, as well as a powerful and sinister force within Iran” according to The Telegraph.

U.S. officials knew that the Quds Force was coordinating and leading the attacks in Benghazi, according to several well-placed sources.

U.S. military forces were ordered not to track or to pursue the Benghazi attackers, former U.S. military personnel confirmed.

According to Kenneth R. Timmerman, the Benghazi attack was funded with hard cash in the form of Euros smuggled into Libya from Malaysia for the Iranian Quds Force.


The human intelligence (HUMINT) warnings began on June 2, 2012, steadily became more serious, and started coming in via much higher-level sources, former U.S. military officials told The American Report.

By September 1, 2012, the warnings were severe enough to warrant removing all key personnel from the areas affected, the most threatened area being Benghazi. All classified or sensitive information, equipment, and personnel of key positions, under policy, were supposed to be moved to a more secure location.

On the night of the attacks, at least 35 Americans were still stationed at the State Department and CIA facilities in Benghazi.

Signals intelligence began corroborating the human intelligence already coming in, verifying the threat levels.

Inexplicably, security was lessened in the areas that were targeted, even after multiple requests to increase security. On or about May 9, 2012, even more security personnel were removed for unknown reasons.

SEPTEMBER 11, 2012

On September 11, 2012, when the attacks began in Benghazi, CENTCOM was conducting a training exercise known as Internal Look 12 (IL 12), according to a former U.S. military official.

CENTCOM did not stop the training event until eight hours after the attacks began. During the attacks, no one was allowed to stop training in order to engage the attacking terrorists.

At AFRICOM, they contacted every intelligence agency. They called the watch desk. They notified the U.S. Navy 6th Fleet. They reached out to Joint Operations Command (JOC).  The commanding officer at AFRICOM told them they could do nothing.

U.S. military aircraft, ships, pararescue teams, and special operators were ordered not to respond, according to former U.S. troops who were on duty during the attacks in Benghazi.

A Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) pararescue team was on 24-7 standby at AFRICOM’s Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti, a small African nation north of Somalia.

Former U.S. military personnel who were on duty the night of the Benghazi attacks unequivocally state that the airspace over North Africa was wide open, with no air traffic that would impede rescue flights.

At Spangdahlem Air Base in Germany, it was “Wheels Up.” Rescue teams were ready to go. Others were notified and on alert at Aviano Air Base and Naval Air Station Sigonella in Italy, should they need refueling.

Yet, all were told to stand down.

Fox News reported on May 12, 2016, that a squadron member from Aviano Air Base who “asked that his identity be protected for fear of retribution . . . said that a team was ready to go that night to help protect Americans under fire in Benghazi:” 

His squadron got the alert: a “real world mission was going down.”

The team – at Aviano Air Base in northeastern Italy – raced to the field and was briefed, as planes were armed and prepared to launch. Hundreds of miles away, fellow Americans were under attack in Benghazi.

“There were people everywhere,” said the witness, who was on the ground that night but wished to remain anonymous. “That flight line was full of people, and we were all ready to go” to Benghazi.

Only they were waiting for the order. It never came.

“The whole night we were told that we are waiting on a call,” he told Fox News. . .

. . . The source said: “I definitely believe that our aircraft could have taken off and gotten there in a timely manner, maybe three hours at the most, in order to at least stop that second mortar attack … and basically save lives that day.”

Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed in that second wave. Ambassador Chris Stevens and information officer Sean Smith were killed in the initial attack on the main compound.

“We could have been there. That’s the worst part,” the source said.

The source who spoke with Fox News challenged the military claim that a re-fueling tanker wasn’t available. He said American jets routinely refuel by using what’s called a “hot pit maneuver,” which allows the jets to land and then get fuel without shutting off the engines. . .

. . . The same frustrations have compelled Mike, a former team sergeant for a military anti-terror quick reaction force, once known as the CIF, to talk.

“For some reason they were all shut down, and I think it leads back to a policymaker somewhere because nobody in the military is going to shut down an operation,” he said. On the night of the attack, Mike was at Delta Force headquarters in the U.S. monitoring the events as they happened.

“We had hours and hours and hours to do something … and we did nothing,” he said. . .

. . . Mike echoed that: “I know everything was spun up and nothing was done.”

He added: “At our level, we were doing everything we were supposed to be doing. At everybody else’s level above us, it was political.”

Fox News also broadcast a video segment featuring the anonymous witness.

During the attacks on Benghazi, there were U.S. ships off the coast of Libya, fast movers in the air, and forces on the ground that were told to stand down.

There was also Special Ops in the air that were turned around. U.S. troops were advised the State Department (DOS) had it under control, former military personnel say.

British and French forces in the region, including a French warship, offered assistance in responding to the attack in Benghazi.

All offers of assistance from allied forces were rejected, the former U.S. military members relay.

One former U.S. military official noted that the Defense Department’s GLOBAL COMMAND AND CONTROL SUPPORT (GCCS) system would have retained records of all available military assets in the region that could have launched rescue operations.

Of interest is the terrorist who was filmed running into the Benghazi mission yelling to his fellow terrorists “Don’t shoot, Don’t shoot. Dr. Morsi sent us.” The U.S. Embassy in Cairo was also under attack on September 11, 2012.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met with Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, leader of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood party, in Cairo in July 2012, two months before the 9/11 attacks against U.S. diplomatic staff in Cairo, Egypt and Benghazi, Libya.

Marking a stark change in diplomatic tone, one month after Hillary Clinton’s meetings with Egyptian President Morsi, Morsi met with Iranian Vice President Hamid Baqai. The unusual Egyptian-Iranian meeting took place in August 2012, just weeks before the 9/11 attacks against U.S. diplomatic staff in Cairo and Benghazi.


The same night that U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in Benghazi, the U.S. embassy in Cairo was also under assault by 2,500 enraged local nationals led by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Two former U.S. armed services personnel revealed that U.S. Marines guarding the U.S. Embassy in Cairo were ordered to lock up their weapons in the arms room while the angry mob outside the embassy was protesting and burning the American flag.

At least six protesters from the mob got over the wall and inside the embassy compound. The U.S. embassy in Cairo is sovereign U.S. territory.

At the same time that the Marine Security Guards protecting the U.S. Embassy in Cairo were ordered to lock up their weapons in the arms room, further instructions came that directed the U.S. Marines to surrender the embassy to Mohamed Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood government.

Anne Patterson, U.S. Ambassador to Egypt, was safe and sound in Washington D.C. during the Cairo embassy siege.

Coincidentally, U.S. Army General Carter Ham, commander of AFRICOM, was also in Washington that fateful evening.


General Ham testified on June 26, 2013, before the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation, that moments after the Benghazi attacks began, he alerted Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey.

Secretary Panetta testified during a February 7, 2013, Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on the Defense Department’s response to the Benghazi attack:

There was no specific intelligence or indication of imminent attack on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi. And, frankly, without an adequate warning, there was not enough time given the speed of the attacks for armed military assets to respond.

The United States military, as I’ve said, is not and, frankly, should not be a 911 service capable of arriving on the scene within minutes to every possible contingency around the world.

General Dempsey stated during the same hearing:

There’s some places on the planet where we have some gaps and I think North Africa’s probably one of them.

The statements of these former U.S. troops who were on duty the evening of the Benghazi attacks stand in stark contrast to the statements of Secretary Panetta and General Dempsey.  Resources and military assets were readily available.

Multiple attacks on Western embassies had already taken place. Dempsey and Panetta had every reason to be on high alert as they had been forewarned by recent events.

The September 11 attacks in Benghazi and at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo were the continuation of an already-established pattern:


These subsequent attacks should not have been unexpected or come as a surprise:


The Guardian reported on August 23, 2015:

The mob that forced its way into the main embassy enclosure and a second British compound in north Tehran included many members of the Basij militia which is linked to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). Some of the protesters held aloft pictures of Qassem Suleimani, the head of the IRGC external wing, the Quds force.

The long shadow of the 1979 takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran was cast in 2012 as Americans were being butchered by the Iranian Quds Force in Benghazi and as an inflamed mob, led by the Muslim Brotherhood, surrounded the U.S. Embassy in Cairo.

U.S. military personnel were told that they could not rescue their fellow Americans.

Permanently etched in the minds and souls of the U.S. military personnel who were on duty the night of the Benghazi attacks is the betrayal of their fellow Americans by the Obama administration.

Desperate calls for help went unanswered. For those former American troops who were ordered not to launch a rescue mission, waiting for accountability has felt like an eternity.

Hillary’s (and Obama’s) Real Email Scandals

The continuing uproar over Hillary’s secret email server and her carelessness with classified information misses the bigger point.

Does anyone believe that if the world today was peaceful and stable anyone would care about Hillary Clinton’s secret email server?

The American people are nothing if not forgiving. In the case of the Clintons, Bill and Hillary, they are forgiving to a fault.  Because the 1990s were relatively peaceful and prosperous, the American people chose to forgive the sins of the offensive (and offending) Clintons. This allowed them to repair their reputations, and later enrich themselves through a global money laundering and bribe machine known as the Clinton Foundation.

Hillary at the State Department: A Force for Sharia Law

Unlike the 1990s, Hillary’s tenure at the State Department was characterized by the promotion of chaos, anarchy, and Islamic terrorism.

The heart of the email scandal is not the less-than-ideal security of the server. Had Hillary’s time at State been successful or even uneventful, such technical details of cybersecurity would be buried in the back pages of the Washington Post and left for review by a special task force at State.

The real scandal that scares Clinton, and terrifies Obama, is what those emails say. It’s more than likely that they tell the truth about the invasion of Libya, the Arab Spring, Benghazi, and Obama’s/Hillary’s relationship with the terrorists. The specter of an alliance with the mothership of all Islamic terror, the Muslim Brotherhood, has stalked Obama since his friendship with Rashid Khalidi was revealed prior to the 2008 election.

Map of Arab Spring countries

Map of Arab Spring countries

We know that PSD-11 was Obama’s directive to codify the United States’ alliance with terrorists. This was the order to the U.S. government to work with the Muslim Brotherhood – the same group that birthed Al Qaeda, Hamas, the Taliban, etc.

By appointing Hillary, and her special assistant Huma Abedin, Obama effectively handed over the State Department to the Muslim Brotherhood. They used the U.S. Department of State to overthrow allied governments. Ruling Libya today is a terror regime, providing a base of operations for ISIS. In former regions of Iraq and Syria, a nascent Caliphate spreads like a cancer, committing genocide to erase all that is pre- and non-Islamic.

Through PSD-11, Obama and Hillary executed their plan to turn the existing order in the Middle East on its head by allying the U.S. with terrorists. The plan demanded isolating and endangering American allies, including Israel, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. In doing so, they made the United States government a pariah to the civilized world.

With the recent Iran deal, Obama doubled down. As a result, the world is more dangerous today than it has been in generations.

Thick as Thieves, and the Power of Pardon

That’s why Hillary’s forfeiture of the server to the FBI last week will probably turn out to be a non-event. Does anybody who follows the Clintons think they would voluntarily self-incriminate? Though there may be backups somewhere, we can be sure that any damning emails related to the Arab Spring or the Clinton Foundation’s dirty deals have now been scrubbed clean by the best in the political cover-up business.

Moreover, if the truth got out regarding Hillary, the buck wouldn’t stop with her. It would go immediately up the flag pole, right into the Oval Office.

Obama’s “Department of Justice” is no such thing. Indeed, it is political weapon that creatively embraces injustice. With such endemic corruption, Hillary’s email scandal will probably culminate in the selection of a “fall person,” who would perhaps be charged (like David Petraeus) for mishandling classified information.  This will clear the air for Hillary in 2016.

If this scenario plays out as predicted, Hillary will serve as a fall person for her former boss Obama, and then select among her staff her own sacrifice so that she can still run in 2016.

Finally, a Presidential pardon could clean up the mess, allowing Hillary’s fall person to avoid any and all consequences.

Trumped-Up Charges: Where is the Righteous Outrage?

Summary: The media attack Donald Trump for telling the truth about America’s problems. Yet they ignore the outrageous and tragic scandals of Obama and Hillary, including their embrace of Islamic terrorists, use of IRS against political enemies, and decimation of the American economy. THE TIME FOR CITIZENS TO SPEAK UP IS NOW!

Over the last few weeks, the bought-and-paid-for media have been presenting Donald Trump and his outspoken, truthful comments as outrageous.   These “Trumped-up” charges are ridiculous. All the Donald has done is point out what mostly everyone knows: Emperor Barack has no clothes. (Spare us the thought.)

Indeed, Trump was correct regarding his comments about Mexico and the millions of seedy, violent, and criminal characters who cross the southern border. In terms of illegal immigration, this summer is at least on par with last summer. Unknown “refugees” flood into the USA via Mexico; and through a federally-funded program, we accept Muslim refugees from countries which are notoriously anti-American. As Trump courageously pointed out, we take very few Christian refugees from the Middle East.

The Media’s Double (Non-)Standard

Despite their infatuation with Trump, for years the media have ignored the truly outrageous, tragic, and unbelievably dark record of Barack Hussein Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry.

Where has the media been on these topics?

  • The Obama administration made the U.S. an explicit ally of the world’s most notorious terrorist group in the world, the Muslim Brotherhood. They did this to overthrow governments in Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia – governments who were previously allied with the United States.
  • There is an ongoing Christian genocide across the Middle East and North Africa. Obama and Hillary created this when they orchestrated the Arab Spring and sided with terrorists. Millions have been slaughtered in scenes reminiscent of the Holocaust. The West’s cultural heritage that has stood for millennia is being destroyed by apocalyptic Muslim psychopaths.
  • In Benghazi, due to this alliance with Islamic terrorists, four Americans were killed in what was almost certainly a bungled effort to kidnap Ambassador Christopher Stevens and swap him for the Blind Sheikh. This was organized by Obama, Hillary, and then-Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.
  • 75% of military casualties in Afghanistan have occurred under Obama.
  • The IRS and tax code have been weaponized against the citizenry. Lois Learner was directed by Valerie Jarrett and George Soros to use the tax code against political enemies, i.e. normal, patriotic Americans. Conversely, the IRS has allowed Obama’s friends (Soros foundations and Muslim Brotherhood front groups, such as CAIR) to operate tax free and without any scrutiny whatsoever.
  • The Clinton Foundation has been proven by Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel to be an international, multi-billion dollar fraud, facilitating money laundering and fueled by bribes. Due to their political connections and extraordinarily deep corruption, these criminals have so far been allowed to operate freely. At least on par with Enron, this bogus charity is a modern day BCCI and the operators belong behind bars, not in the White House.
  • The economy is in ruin. The industrial infrastructure has been knee-capped by the EPA, which is forcing power plants and factories to close or move abroad. There are 93 million Americans out of the labor force. The $18+ trillion of debt may never be paid off. There’s a stock market bubble that’s ready to go POP!

If you think for a second that the administration, including Obama himself and the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, aren’t guilty of several counts of treason, think again. The evidence is overwhelming.


Now add in that the Constitution is in tatters and that America’s traditional allies don’t trust us anymore. Our standing in the world, among our friends, is at an all-time low.

We should all praise and thank Donald Trump for his big mouth and his unapologetic stance. He’s broken the fever of political correctness. It is time to take advantage of the moment.

For justice, we the citizens must talk about the scandals above and force them into the 2016 conversation!

Obama’s Betrayal of America: Stating, and now Proving, the Obvious

Declassified documents again show what everyone knows deep-down – Obama is on the side of the enemy

The crooked, deceitful, and traitorous Obama regime was again revealed on Monday to be lying about what happened in Benghazi, Libya. Documents obtained by Judicial Watch and examined by Fox News prove for all time that the administration was shipping Libyan weapons to Syrian rebels.

Note: Those are the same groups of rebels (al Qaeda, ISIS, “moderate rebels,” etc.) who are committing genocide against Christians and destroying humanity’s cultural heritage in ancient Mesopotamia.

This is also the reason why Ambassador Christopher Stevens was in Benghazi to begin with. He was working out of a CIA annex in Benghazi, overseeing a sophisticated weapons distribution supply chain to a variety of revolutionary terrorist groups in North Africa and the Middle East.

An Endless number of Investigations – Why?

For those counting, the current Benghazi investigation is the eighth investigation on the topic.

At the core of the myriad (and stymied) investigations of Benghazi is a simple fact: the Obama administration switched sides in the war on terror, and allied the United States with the Muslim Brotherhood.  Congress, showing remarkably bad judgment, rubberstamped what Obama and Hillary demanded: arm Islamic terrorists in order to overthrow secular governments in the Middle East and North Africa.

Obama and Hillary were going to build a caliphate. Libya was their arms grab, and now it’s also an ISIS stronghold and basing ground for the Islamic invasion of Europe.

Think about why there have been so many inconclusive investigations, and apply your common sense. The truth about Benghazi implicates Obama, Hillary, and the Congressional leadership in treason. That is why there is never any resolution with respect to the ongoing Benghazi investigations. Remember that the “investigator” sent by Obama worked for George Soros at the International Crisis Group, and was an Iran sympathizer. Remember that the FBI’s investigation of the scene was delayed by three full weeks.

The government waited three weeks to investigate a terror scene in an American-run compound where a U.S. Ambassador and three others had just been tortured and killed by terrorists!

The Republican leadership in Congress are complicit in the chaos and genocide that define the Middle East today, including Benghazi arms running. What can you say to Obama when you’re his partner in crime?

Check out this video of a Libyan “sea of arms” that were handed to the rebels in that country.

GOP Purged of Muslim Brotherhood Critics

Of all the members of Congress, two stood out as voices against the Muslim Brotherhood: Michele Bachmann and Col. Allen West. For example, they openly questioned Hillary’s “aide” Huma Abedin. In contrast, John McCain and Lindsay Graham, among others, defended Abedin, despite numerous documented family connections to the Muslim Brotherhood including her parents.

Bachmann and Col. West are no longer in Congress. McCain and Graham are. Any questions?

It is plain to see that the Republican establishment (thanks especially to Thomas Donohue’s Chamber of Commerce) is on board with Obama’s agenda. This is likely why Romney couldn’t make an issue of Benghazi in 2012. It was a Republican liability, too.

Confirming the Redundant

Monday, as Fox debuted the new documents, there was a certain triumphalism on the conservative right. But I don’t understand why. The New York Times reported in 2013 that Libyan weapons were making their way into Syria. CNN reported Benghazi’s extensive CIA operation less than a year after the attack.

Monday’s new documents also prove that as far back as 2012, military intelligence was concerned with the rise of ISIS. But even this fact was basically redundant. Remember when Obama ignored all signs of a growing Al Qaeda, dismissively referring to them as the “JV Team”? We already knew Obama didn’t care to hear about the rise of jihadi armies. He helped to build them.

The entire Obama-backed Arab Spring was itself exercise of jihad. The primary beneficiary of the Arab Spring was, and continues to be, the Muslim Brotherhood. Indeed, the administration is now actively trying to hand a nuclear bomb to bloodthirsty Iran. Obama’s, Hillary’s, and now Kerry’s actions have alienated Israel, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia – America’s three closest allies in the Middle East for generations.

At some point, the facts need to be aligned with plausible a strategy. The strategy in this case is Islamic conquest.

When the Investigators are also the Perps

Ambassador Pickering is not the only suspect character who investigated Benghazi. Republican Mike Rogers was the head of the U.S. House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. He, with the Committee, spent months producing the House Intel Committee “report” on Benghazi.

Rogers’ wife, Kristi Rogers, was CEO of Aegis Defense Services LLC, the company contracted by the State Department to provide security for the Benghazi compound. Not only was Mike Rogers’ chairing of the House Intel Committee’s investigation a clear conflict of interest; when the investigation was completed, Rogers and Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger, without the other Committee members, authored a bogus “Committee Report” on what allegedly happened Benghazi. It was a total whitewash, replete with lies and misinformation.

In effect, Republican Mike Rogers issued an official-sounding government cover-up. Nothing more, nothing less.

The Betrayal of the American People

Recently, the Coalition of Concerned Citizens released a six-part review of the Obama administration’s relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood. The series tells the story of how this Nazi-rooted Islamic party has taken the leading role in the American government, dictating policies that affect Americans and U.S. foreign policy, to the benefit of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Did you know?

  • The founder of the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine played a significant role in the Holocaust.
  • American intelligence began to establish a relationship with the Muslim Brothers during the early Cold War.
  • Many prominent Obama appointees are directly tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, including Hillary Clinton, and her aide Huma Abedin.
  • The Muslim Brotherhood State of Qatar exerts tremendous influence in Washington, hosts a campus of the Georgetown School of Foreign Service, and funds the preeminent D.C. think tank, the Brookings Institution.
  • Scandals as wide ranging as the IRS targeting of conservatives, law enforcement’s scrubbing of all mention of Islam, DHS militarization of the police, and out-of-control immigration all serve to empower the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • One of Obama’s most critical early political backers was Nadhmi Auchi, an agent of Saddam Hussein who hates Israel.
  • Obama’s mother was a member of an Islamic cult in Indonesia called Subud, and his political mentor was an FBI-identified enemy of the state.

The American public should ask themselves a very simple question: Is it by more than coincidence that the facts all point in one definite direction… at the Muslim Brotherhood?

To read the six part Betrayal Papers, click here.

On Monday, we learned what we already knew. Obama gave Libyan arms to psychopaths (and in this case that word is descriptive, not hyperbole) in Syria. So, what are we going to do about it?

The evidence of what drives this administration is contained in The Betrayal Papers.

Nothing else should require redundant re-confirmation, like was reported on Monday, for people to wake up. The time to demand an immediate resignation of Obama and his entire cabinet is now!
