It’s even worse than we previously thought. A retired four-star admiral is now claiming that Barack Obama intentionally conspired with America’s enemies to stage a bogus attack and the kidnapping of an American ambassador so he could “negotiate” the release of a “hostage” and bolster his mediocre approval ratings just prior to the election!
 
The Washington Examiner, quoting retired Four-Star Admiral James Lyons, writes: “the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi… was the result of a bungled abduction attempt…. the first stage of an international prisoner exchange… that would have ensured the release of Omar Abdel Rahman, the ‘Blind Sheik’…”
But something went horribly wrong with Obama’s “October Surprise.” Although the Obama Administration intentionally gutted security at the consulate prior to the staged kidnapping, former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty disobeyed direct orders to stand down, saved American lives, single-handedly killed scores of attackers…and the attackers, believing that Obama had betrayed them, tortured Ambassador Chris Stevens and dragged his body through the streets.
Some will say that Admiral Lyons’ accusation is not a smoking gun. We agree; that’s exactly why Congress must investigate Benghazi-gate.
Moreover, we firmly believe the problem with Admiral Lyons’ assertion is that he is only scratching the surface; the full and complete truth may be much, much worse.

Benghazi-gate is not about a bogus YouTube video series of lies. It’s not about the Obama Administration’s foreign policy ineptitude. We are dealing with something much more sinister… something potentially treasonous… and the following questions, posed in an article in The New American, go to the heart of the matter:?

If anyone wants to get really conspiracy-minded...

 

You almost have to wonder if people like Alex Jones and Admiral Lyons are in the employ of the government, spinning tales so outlandish that we end up ignoring the real damage being done to us and our country.

that would be a conspiracy wrapped in a conspiracy...

 

gotta follow ochams razor here, and disagree with that angle

i'm not biting.  between the washington examiner (not exactly a reliable source), and an 85 year old admiral who retired in '87 to run his own consulting business, his speculation smacks of self-serving fiction.

Isn't that always the way, either eliminate or discredit the source?

When it comes to credible sources on government related fuck ups, only the government or it's corporate media allies can be trusted to give you a credible scoop.
