Secrets and Coverups At The Top Filter Through The Whole of Government by The Elephant's Child

Judicial Watch announced on May 18, 2015 that it had obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified “Secret” documents from the Department of Defense and the Department of State revealing that the June 18, 2012 attack on the  U.S. consulate in Benghazi was committed by al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood linked “Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman (BCOAR) and had been planned at least 10 days in advance.

Rahman is perhaps better known in this country as the “Blind Sheikh” who is serving life in prison for his involvement in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and other terrorist attacks. The documents also confirm that the U.S. government was aware of arms shipments from Benghazi to Syria. Also included in the documents was an August 2012 analysis warning of the rise of ISIS and the predicted failure of the Obama policy of regime change in Syria.

The documents were released in response to a court order in accordance with a May 15, 2014 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit. A DOD document from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) dated the day after the Benghazi attack, detailed that the attack had been carefully planned by the BOCAR terrorist group to kill as many Americans as possible. Notice the gaps in time between the attack, and finally — the release of documents. Hillary’s emails have not been released.

If the American people had known that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other administration officials were lying to them, that the attack was an al Qaeda terrorist attack from the start, and covered this fact up? That they continued to support the Muslim Brotherhood even though they knew it was involved in the attack, and knew about the transfer of arms from Benghazi to Syrian jihadists. And the filmmaker of the “Innocence of Muslims” video (that nobody ever saw) that they blamed the whole thing on and sent Nakoula Nakoula off to jail? And the administration knew three months before the Nov. 2012 election of ISIS plans to establish a caliphate in Iraq.

Had it not been for the lies and coverup, the  election might have turned out differently.Yes, Benghazi was three years ago. Past history. But when the example set at the top is that the right politics trumps releasing embarrassing information, and releasing embarrassing emails can be delayed and stalled, you get things like a Veterans Administration failure to fix their problems and  vets dying without care. You get a government being run on executive orders, and laws and Constitution ignored. And Secretaries of State who keep their official business on a private home server, available to hackers everywhere.

It’s hard enough for Inspectors general to police their departments. When the example at the top is corrupt, it becomes a free-for-all.

CORRECTION: Dumb mistake. I looked up the date and must have copied the wrong thing. I knew it was on 9/11, but forgot the year. Correct date of attack: September 11-12, 2012. My bad.
