Is This The Difference That It Doesn’t Make?

Brennan’s Secret War?

New book purports to tell the real story behind Benghazi: just one more of Odumbo’s unintended consequences. White House Counter-Terrorism adviser John Brennan was running his own little war inside Libya, with teams of hit squads, taking out AQ leaders. Neither CIA director General Petraeus nor Ambassador Stevens was aware of it. And then the foo hit the shan ...

Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the attack on the US consulate because of a secret low-level war in which American hit squads took out leaders of al Qaeda militias, which retaliated in Benghazi. There was never a protest at the consulate over the infamous anti-Islamist YouTube video.

So says the new 80-page e-book, “Benghazi: The Definitive Report” (William Morrow) by Jack Murphy and Brandon Webb, two military veterans who specialize in reporting about clandestine operations at the website Their book, which they say is based on interviews with well-placed security types but contains virtually no checkable sourcing, is loaded with explosive allegations.

The fall of Moammar Khadafy presented a tricky situation for us: Khadafy, though a despot to his own people, had nevertheless been cooperating with the US, which among other favors was granted the right to use Libyan territory for CIA black sites.

Moreover, the opposition to Khadafy wasn’t exactly led by a gang of Libyan George Washingtons. Many of the rebel leaders were sharia-loving members of al Qaeda who had come from jihadist strongholds in the cities of Derna and Benghazi, which are so tied up in Islamist fundamentalism that they were major exporters of guerilla warriors who fought the US in Iraq.

Plenty more to read at the link to today’s NY Post.  The full book is an e-book, for your Kindle or other digital reader. $2.99 at Amazon.

And some more at SOFREP, the author’s Special Ops web site.

And more, regarding Hillary. And that article in The Blaze on her so-charming responses to the Benghazi committee hearings.

Since the CIA didn’t know about the secretive hit squads targeting al Qaeda, the agency and the consulate personnel were caught off guard: “They had no idea that the Special Operations missions would be kicking the hornet’s nest in Libya and therefore could not prepare for the fallout that would result.” Petraeus, the authors say, “was furious about being left in the lurch by the Obama administration.”

  2. If we actually have the pretense of an “election” in 2016, it won’t likely matter who sits in that seat anymore.  Unspeakable ugly is so close you can smell it.  Metaphors consciously mixed.
