Dear Fellow Patriots:
What follows is a letter that I forwarded to Florida U.S. Congressman Allen West today regarding my numerous requests for the conduct of a full-scale investigation by both houses of Congress into the allegations made, on March 1, 2012 and July 17, 2012, by Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse.
Please note that I have included excerpts from the letter that I sent to our NM U.S. Senator Tom Udall earlier today.
Letter to Congressman West:
October 28, 2012
The Honorable Allen West
U.S. House of Representatives
1708 Longworth HOB
Washington, DC 20515
Dear Congressman West:
I am writing to you again for the purpose of sharing the following excerpts from a letter that I forwarded to our NM U.S. Senator Tom Udall earlier today:
Excerpts From Senator Udall’s Letter:
“…On October 22, 2012, an eye-opening Washington Times article and/or blog post revealed that the mystery is beginning to unravel with regard to what happened in Benghazi, Libya, late on September 11, 2012, that includes a clumsy official cover-up. What follows is said article and/or blog post in its entirety:
“President Obama’s once seemingly unstoppable march toward re-election hit what he might call “bumps in the road” in Benghazi, Libya, late on Sept. 11, 2012. It might be more accurate to describe the effect of the well-planned and -executed, military-style attack on a diplomatic facility there as the political equivalent of a devastating improvised explosive device on the myth of the unassailability of the Obama record as commander in chief.
Thanks to intrepid investigative reporting — notably by Bret Baier and Catherine Herridge at Fox News, Aaron Klein at WND.com and Clare Lopez at RadicalIslam.org — and information developed by congressional investigators, the mystery is beginning to unravel with regard to what happened that night and the reason for the subsequent, clumsy official cover-up now known as Benghazigate.
The evidence suggests that the Obama administration has not simply been engaging, legitimating, enriching and emboldening Islamists who have taken over or are ascendant in much of the Middle East. Starting in March 2011, when American diplomatJ. Christopher Stevens was designated the liaison to the “opposition” in Libya, the Obama administration has been arming them, including jihadists like Abdelhakim Belhadj, leader of the al Qaeda franchise known as the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.
Once Moammar Gadhafi was overthrown, Stevens was appointed ambassador to the new Libya run by Mr. Belhadj and his friends. Not surprisingly, one of the most important priorities for someone in that position would be to try to find and secure the immense amount of armaments that had been cached by the dictator around the country and systematically looted during and after the revolution.
One of the places in Libya most awash with such weapons in the most dangerous of hands is Benghazi. It now appears thatStevens was there — on a particularly risky day, with no security to speak of and despite now copiously documented concerns about his own safety and that of his subordinates — for another priority mission: sending arms recovered from the former regime’s stocks to the “opposition” in Syria. As in Libya, the insurgents are known to include al Qaeda and other Shariah-supremacist groups, including none other than Abdelhakim Belhadj.
Fox News has chronicled how the Al Entisar, a Libyan-flagged vessel carrying 400 tons of cargo, docked on Sept. 6 in the Turkish port of Iskenderun. It reportedly supplied both humanitarian assistance and arms — including deadly SA-7 man-portable surface-to-air missiles — apparently destined for Islamists, again including al Qaeda elements, in Syria.
What cries out for further investigation — and debate in the remaining days of this presidential election — is whether this shipment was part of a larger covert Obama effort to transfer weapons to our enemies that could make the Iran-Contra scandal, to say nothing of Operation Fast and Furious, pale by comparison.
Investigative journalist Aaron Klein has reported that the “consulate in Benghazi” actually was no such thing. He observes that although administration officials have done nothing to correct that oft-repeated characterization of the facility where the murderous attack on Stevens and his colleagues was launched, they call it a “mission.” What Mr. Klein describes as a “shabby, nondescript building” that lacked any “major public security presence” was, according to an unnamed Middle Eastern security official, “routinely used by Stevens and others to coordinate with the Turkish, Saudi and Qatari governments on supporting the insurgencies in the Middle East, most prominently the rebels opposing Assad’s regime in Syria.”
We know that Stevens‘ last official act was to hold such a meeting with an unidentified “Turkish diplomat.” Presumably, the conversation involved additional arms shipments to al Qaeda and its allies in Syria. It also may have involved getting more jihadi fighters there. After all, Mr. Klein reported last month that, according to sources in Egyptian security, our ambassador was playing a “central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria.”
It gets worse. Last week, Center for Security Policy senior fellow and former career CIA officer Clare Lopez observed that there were two large warehouse-type buildings associated with the so-called “consulate” whose purpose has yet to be disclosed. As their contents were raided in the course of the attack, we may never know for sure whether they housed — and were known by the local jihadis to house — arms, perhaps administered by the two former Navy SEALs killed along with Stevens.
What we do know is that the New York Times — one of the most slavishly pro-Obama publications in the country — reported in an Oct. 14 article, “Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster.”
In short, it seems President Obama has been engaged in gun-walking on a massive scale. The effect has been to equip America’s enemies to wage jihad not only against regimes it once claimed were our friends, but inevitably against us and our allies as well. That would explain his administration’s desperate and now failing bid to mislead the voters through the serial deflections of Benghazigate.”

On October 24, 2012, an eye-opening article and/or blog post revealed that there was a live video feed going to the State Department, the Pentagon and the White House Situation Room during the entire course of the Benghazi attack, along with revealing that there were approximately thirteen different documents that were recently uncovered that prove that this administration was alerted that it was in fact a terrorist attack and not a YouTube video as we were led to believe. One of the documents also revealed that Ansar al-Sharia had claimed responsibility for the attack. Ansar al-Sharia was one of the groups that this administration gave arms and funding to during the war to overthrow Gaddhafi. What follows are pertinent excerpts from said article and/or blog post:
“Glenn Beck took to his radio show Wednesday morning for a fiery denouncement of the administration’s handling of the crisis in Libya.
“This president is lying to you about Benghazi in such [a] spectacular fashion that I believe people will go to prison. This is impeachable. The president might go to prison for this one,” he said. “What’s happening in Benghazi is so far beyond lying, it is staggering.”
While politicians are known for twisting words into half-truths, Beck added that has never seen an administration persist in such a boldfaced lie when American lives are at stake, or seen a media so content to let it slide.
He continued, going over the newly-released documents that prove the administration was alerted to what was really happening in Libya before spinning a story about a YouTube video:
Now we have [the] beginning of the truth on Benghazi. Five days into the Benghazi scandal, when no one was saying anything, I presented a theory…I told you that [Ambassador Stevens] was involved in running guns, and he was running guns to al-Qaeda in Libya, and he was running guns through Turkey into Syria. And whether it was a deal that went bad, I don’t know, but that’s what happened. And the White House knew…And while everyone else was arguing about whether it was a videotape or not, we were furthering the story.
Today we have evidence that is staggering. We now have a memo posted [at] TheBlaze…to the White House two hoursafter the attacks began. Last night on the TV show I laid it out again…exactly what happened, when. At 1:00, or 12:54 in the afternoon on September 11, the White House was warned that somebody was watching the Benghazi safe house– and so you know, do not let any member of the press get away with calling this an embassy safe house. It is not. It was a CIA safe house. Now why, in the most dangerous place in one of the most dangerous parts of the world, on Sept. 11…why would he be at a CIA safe house? …We now know he was having dinner with the general counsel of Turkey. [Emphasis added]
Beck reminded that it has been widely reported that President Obama has a close relationship with the Turkish prime minister, before continuing:
An hour after that, the Turkish ambassador leaves through the front door and the front gate, unmolested. Now you tell me– why was the Turkish general counsel there? …Why was it so important on Sept. 11 to go to the most dangerous city, into a CIA safe house?
An hour after he leaves, the fight begins. We now know that the White House– somebody, the military, somebody, sent a drone. So there was a live video feed of what was going on. They’re watching it in the State Department, they’re watching it at the Pentagon, they’re watching it at Langley, and they’re watching it in the Situation Room. At 5:00 in the afternoon, Leon Panetta has a meeting with the president of the United States. The first email comes at 4:05. So the Secretary of Defense arrives at the White House to have a meeting with the president 55 minutes after the Situation Room and everybody else gets an email saying, ‘Libya, the safe house is under attack.” [Emphasis added]
Beck proceeded to read several more emails explaining how our personnel in Benghazi were missing and under attack, before he got to one time stamped at 6:07. According to the memo, Ansar al-Sharia had claimed responsibility for the attack and– though he isn’t sure– Beck said it’s possible that Ansar al-Sharia was one of the groups that we gave arms and funding to during the war to overthrow Gaddhafi.
“This is why the White House covered, because our ambassador was killed by [guys] we were running guns to, and we are stillrunning guns today.”
He then read an international report from Russia Today saying U.S. Stinger Missiles are in the hands of Syrian rebels, adding that the New York Times has also reported that we are using the Muslim Brotherhood to arm the rebels in Syria.
Beck concluded the segment:
“This president is on the wrong side. It is so crystal clear. You can at this point begin to make a case for treason, but let’s just take it one step at a time. The President of the United States of America, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of State have all lied to you. They lied to you and said, ‘this might be a video, we don’t have all the information, the information is still sketchy, it’s confusing,’…We now have the documents that came into the Situation Room saying, ‘There’s an attack, they’re watching.’ Then, we have the documents that we had a live video feed in the Situation Room, so they could see that there was no protest. Then there are the documents– and there’s now 13, with this new one– there’s now 13 different documents saying it’s a terrorist attack, and here’s the group that’s doing it. And they lied to you.”
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney responded to questions about the newly-released emails by saying there was “all sorts of information” coming in at the time.
Watch the entire clip, via TheBlaze TV, below:
On October 28, 2012, an heartbreaking article and/or blog post revealed that Mr. Charles Woods, father of the former SEAL Tyrone Woods that was killed in Libya terrorist attack, has broken his silence and revealed some extremely disturbing and/or compelling information regarding his meeting with President Obama and Hillary Clinton, the Secretary of State, when his son’s coffin arrived stateside from Libya. Mr. Woods is also asking a question that is not just personal, but vital to our nation and the answer to his question needs to be forthcoming soon. What follows is said article and/or blog post in its entirety:
“As the catastrophe in Benghazi continues to unravel it becomes ever more obvious that Charles Woods, father of slain, former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, is asking a question that is not just personal; it is vital to the entire nation.
Daniel Halper, posting in The Weekly Standard yesterday, related Mr. Woods’ description of what went on as his son’s coffin was delivered stateside from Libya. The return of the four bodies, as you will remember, was employed as a reprehensible photo-op by the president and Mrs. Clinton. Mr. Woods has very clear recollections of the event. Mr. Woods reported that “…she (Mrs. Clinton) did not appear to be one bit sincere—at all. And you know, she mentioned that the thing about we’re going to have that person arrested and prosecuted that did the video. That was the first time I had even heard about anything like that.” More damning still was the “sympathy” the president extended: “When [Obama] came over to our little area at Andrew Air Force Base he kind of just mumbled, you know, ‘I’m sorry.’ His face was looking at me, but his eyes were looking over my shoulder like he could not look me in the eye. And it was not a sincere, ‘I’m really sorry, you know, that your son died,’ but it was totally insincere, more of whining type, ‘I’m sorry.’ ”Mr. Woods added that the apathetic handshake the president offered felt like he was shaking hands “with a dead fish”. Mr. Woods has since moved on to radio (interview with Lars Larson) and television (interviews on FOX with Megan Kelly and Sean Hannity) in attempts to get his question public traction. The “mainstream media” is, as usual, providing cover for the administration on this breaking news.
Mr. Woods’ question becomes even more compelling in light of information that has broken since. According to the most recent news, denials of help came from official sources that knew, in real time, that the attacks were terrorist attacks. Right then and there. Despite this C.I.A. requests for assistance were not only refused once but three times. Both the military and C.I.A. were ordered to “stand down”. There was military assistance available a mere hour away. The violation of the diplomatic compound took place over a period of seven hours. David Petraeus, head of the C.I.A. has released an unequivocal statement: “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.” The C.I.A can only be stopped by the White House.
The scandal is spreading by the second and now engulfs the State Department, the Department of Defense, Mrs. Clinton, Leon Panetta and last but, certainly not least, the president. What we also know is that Mr. Woods’ son, Tyrone, lost his life because he chose to ignore orders and tried to help. Tyrone Wood was not in the diplomatic compound, as his parents had been told; he had been a mile away. He had heard the early gunshots and he and fellow ex- Navy SEAL Chris Doherty rushed to help despite the order to stand down. An unconfirmed source, a former Lt. Colonel who had been a Spec Ops dispatcher during Desert Storm, took a risk by telephoning The Rush Limbaugh Show on Friday. He was nervous but so outraged by the lies he couldn’t stand by and say nothing so he delivered “inside baseball” information. The president irrefutably knew what was happening. Despite feeble excuses that there was “too much information to wade through quickly”, this caller reports that consulates are rigged to bypass any such information glut. He reported that when a consulate is under attack, their communication warning system is directly linked to the White House and is “faster than instant messaging”. Records are automatically made of such communication. According to the caller, it is the job of the high-ranking individual receiving such messages (always a Lt. Colonel or higher rank) to immediately notify the president that a consulate is under attack. In person. There is an automatic default system in place to send help. The president is not required to give such an order for aid. But an order would be required to override what is already in place.
So, who did make the decision not to save Ty Woods or the other Americans who died under siege? It seems undeniable, no matter how badly one may want to spin a prettier picture, this is malfeasance. There is proof recorded on every type of media available. Someone made certain that four, helpless and unprotected Americans were killed. Who? Why? We’ve been told where “the buck stops. Tragically, we know where the bullets stopped, too.
Answers for Charles Woods, and the rest of America, better be forthcoming…and soon.”
