CHARLOTTE, NC, May 2, 2014 – It would seem that the “smoking gun of Benghazi” has finally been uncovered, but then again, that may only depend upon which political party is making the claim.
There has really been no need for “smoking gun” evidence in the first place other than to verity what everybody already knows: that the Obama administration has been lying since day one about events in Libya that left four Americans dead.
The documents which have revitalized interest in Benghazi were obtained by the conservative watchdog group known as Judicial Watch. A Freedom of Information Act lawsuit has uncovered a September 14, 2012 e-mail from Ben Rhodes, a White House aide, to former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice just prior to her appearances on five Sunday morning news programs in the aftermath of the Benghazi attacks.
Meanwhile, as the controversial White House communications were being revealed, terrorist convert to Christianity, Walid Shoebat, continued his relentless investigative reporting into the Clinton administration and its association with the Muslim Brotherhood and other known terrorist organizations. Though the Shoebat findings are nowhere to be found in any other media source, the key linking factor between the two stories is the far reaching tentacles of Hillary Clinton who is in the center of both.
Regarding the latest revelations on Benghazi, Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) wrote, “It is now abundantly clear that senior White House staff were directly involved in coordinating the messaging in response to the Benghazi attacks and were actively working to tie the reason to the infamous Internet video.”
Actually, it has always been abundantly clear, but, until now, there has been no direct proof. This new evidence, however, has prompted Wolf to call for a select committee investigation which House Majority Leader John Boehner has long resisted.
Democrats argue that there have been countless hearings on the subject of Benghazi that have provided no significant results to incriminate the administration for any cover-up. While democrats are accurate about multiple hearings, what they do not say is that the bulk of those inquiries were bogus exercise due to the format used to obtain information.
As Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) correctly and vociferously states any further investigations need to be structured in a manner that does not allow for congressional speechmaking and, at the same time, provides time periods of significant length to pursue a line of questioning that can have some legitimate continuity.
Said Graham, “If this is not a smoking gun, proving beyond any doubt, the story told by the administration about Benghazi was politically motivated and fabricated, nothing will ever prove that.”
Adding clarity to the Benghazi story, though the two are only related because of Hillary Clinton, another written document has surfaced, this one from the Clinton Library, that highlights the close association between the Clintons and Bassam Estwani, the former chairman of the notorious Dar al-Hijrah mosque. As Walid Shoebat points out in his blog “Estwani is a major mole. He has curried favor with powerful politicians; the mosque he led for years incubated and bred terrorists who were released into American streets.”
It is the Estwani letter to the Clintons which is most damning because it alludes to the fact that the mosque is “one of the most active and largest Islamic centers in the United States”.
Estwani goes on to write, “I have been repeatedly honored by your invitations and warm receptions at the white house, especially at the Breakfast Prayers since September 1995. You and the first lady have graciously hosted the Muslim community on several occasions and we are eternally grateful for your and her gracious hospitality and reception.”
So what?, you ask. It goes with the territory of being the president. True, but as Shoebat further adds, the letter clearly shows that the Clintons were involved with Estwani in 1995. That was the same year he hired an imam who had been implicated in the first attack on the World Trade Center two years before.
The Clinton involvement of the story is far more complicated than can be explained in a single article. For full details read Shoebat’s blog. What it does demonstrate however, is proof of Walid Shoebat’s claim that “Clinton was more interested in pandering to terrorists than in holding them accountable.” That is a philosophy that is all too familiar in the current administration as well.
By themselves perhaps each story can be explained, but given Hillary Clinton’s perpetual record of shady deals in the past for political or monetary gain, for power or all three, combined with the shameful display of blaming a video in the aftermath of the Benghazi attack in order to help Barack Obama get re-elected and to preserve Ms. Clinton’s rock star image, the evidence of White House corruption is difficult to ignore.
The worst part is that this is just the tip of the iceberg and chances are, thanks to a complicit media, it will likely only remain at the tip.
