    Report: Benghazi Guards Betrayed U.S. Diplomats in 2012 Attack

    Report: Benghazi Guards Betrayed U.S. Diplomats in 2012 Attack

    Unvetted guards belonged to terror groups.

    Multiple sources have told Fox News that the guards hired to protect the Americans in Benghazi betrayed them in the end. These sources claim the firm “hastily recruited locals with terror ties who helped carry out the attack” that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, Foreign Service Information Officer Sean Smith and CIA contractors and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

    The sources also said the State Department hired these guards from the Wales-based Blue Mountain Group despite internal objections:

    The explosive charge against Wales-based Blue Mountain Group comes from several sources, including an independent security specialist who has implemented training programs at U.S. Consulates around the world, including in Benghazi, where he trained a local militia that preceded Blue Mountain. The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Blue Mountain used local newspaper ads to assemble a team of 20 guards, many of whom had terror ties, after securing a $9.2 million annual contract.

    The source told Fox News that these locals belonged to the Ansar al-Sharia and al-Qaeda groups in Benghazi. The department allowed this firm to hire locals without vetting them:

    “We kept asking for additional support, including a 50-caliber mounted machine gun, but the State Department would not give it to us, because they said it would upset the locals,” the source told Fox News. “Instead, the State Department hired a company that doesn’t have employees, which then hired terrorists.”

    According to Charles Tiefer, a commissioner at the Commission on wartime Contracting, one of the guards “was the younger brother of the leader of Al Qaeda of Benghazi.”

    Jairo Saravia of the Regional Security office for the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli told the State Department that Blue Mountain “is not licensed by the GOL (Government of Libya) to provide security services in Libya.” The group lost its security contracts with the Corinthian Hotel and Palm City complex in Tripoli. He wrote:

    “I would advise not to use their services to provide security for any of our annexes and/or offices due to the sensitivity this issue has with the current GOL.”

    CIA contractor John “Tig” Tiegen responded to the Benghazi attack and confirmed the sources story:

    “Many of the local Libyans who attacked the consulate on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, were the actual guards that the State Department under Hillary Clinton hired to protect the Consulate in Benghazi,” Tiegen told Fox News. “The guards were unvetted and were locals with basically no background at all in providing security. Most of them never had held a job in security in the past.

    “Blue Mountain Libya, at the time of being awarded the contract by our State Department, had no employees so they quickly had to find people to work, regardless of their backgrounds,” he said.

    Former guard Weeam Mohamed told the Citizens Commission on Benghazi “that at least four guards hired by Blue Mountain took part in the attack after opening doors to allow their confederates in.”

    Just remember that the woman who as SecState hired the fox to guard the hen house in Benghazi now wants a promotion to Preezy where, she assures us, she won’t let anyone dangerous into the US among those tens of thousands of Muslim “refugees” she wants to let in.

    I used to like the Crazy Town 15 or 20 years ago.

    I never thought I’d have to live there 24/7/365 though.

    “She did not lie about the cause of the attack. There was no reason to lie. They were mistaken. Ever heard of ‘The Fog of War’? You don’t want to believe that because you don’t want to believe that.”

    ORDA, I wish I could grow to respect you more over time. But, I just can’t.

    Not only did they lie about Benghazi, they lied about Cairo, too. It wasn’t about the video.

    Note the freakin’ date.

    “Jihadis Threaten to Burn U.S. Embassy in Cairo

    By Raymond Ibrahim September 10, 2012

    Jihadi groups in Egypt, including Islamic Jihad, the Sunni Group, and Al Gamaa Al Islamiyya have issued a statement threatening to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to the ground.

    According to El Fagr, they are calling for the immediate release of the Islamic jihadis who are imprisonment and in detention centers in the U.S. including Guantanamo Bay: “The group, which consists of many members from al-Qaeda, called [especially] for the quick release of the jihadi [mujahid] sheikh, Omar Abdul Rahman [the “Blind Sheikh”], whom they described as a scholar and jihadi who sacrificed his life for the Egyptian Umma, who was ignored by the Mubarak regime, and [President] Morsi is refusing to intervene on his behalf and release him, despite promising that he would. The Islamic Group has threatened to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo with those in it, and taking hostage those who remain [alive], unless the Blind Sheikh is immediately released.””

    And from CNN:

    “CNN’s Nic Robertson Interviews Brother of Blind Sheik”

    Yes there was a reason to lie. If you recall Ben Rhodes’ input to the talking points chain of emails, he said it was important to stress this was all about the video. And not about a broader policy failure. If you haven’t learned anything about the Obama administration let me clue you in. It’s Oppositeville. The truth is 180dg out from what they want you to think. It wasn’t about the video. The broader policy failure concerned, at least in part, the Obama administration’s and if America loses this election the future Clinton administration’s suicidal backing of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    They want their goddammed blind sheikh back. And everyone else we have locked up. And, no, GITMO isn’t a freakin’ recruiting tool. I mean, the Blind Sheikh is locked up in a nice Supermax in Colorado. How could they possibly object? At least according to Obama. Where we have them locked up, GITMO is the recruiting tool? Only later will the lying bastard admit that BECAUSE we have them locked up at all is the real recruiting tool. Where just doesn’t freaking matter.

    I use to do this for a living, child, so listen up. There is no such thing as Susan Rice or Hillary Clinton would have you believe as a spontaneous riot over an “offensive anti-Muslim video” in the Islamic world. These things are planned, and in general if you’re talking about the 57 member states of the OIC (including “Palestine”) they are planned by the government. They were putting out press releases in Cairo. They would have also been putting it out in sermons in mosques, on social media, and flyers.

    It was about the Blind Sheik and about releasing all the jihadis we have in custody. I’m not saying the video played no role in Cairo. But getting that kind of mob together requires weeks of work. It’s sort of like advertising a concert to get a full crowd. The video, in Cairo, was at best the cherry on top. The heart of the matter was Abdul Rahman.

    And neither the Blind Sheik or the video had a flipping thing to do with Benghazi. The whole story from Obama, Clinton, et al was a lie from the start. Like I said I used to do this for a living. I knew this for an absolute fact at least by 9/13/2012.

    And let’s talk about this fog of war. Ever dealt with it? Admittedly I was “In the rear with the gear.” But I was still intel so I had a hand in. The fog of war is thickest while troops are in contact. Yet, funny. This Obama crowd insists they had absolute clarity. They knew on the night when the attacks were over. They knew on the night of the attacks that they couldn’t get there in time. They were so goddam sure. It was only later, after the smoke of battle cleared, that they would have you believe things got murky. And then murkier and murkier as the days passed.

    That’s the opposite of the “fog of war.” That’s the “smokescreen of how can we fool them now.”

    “These things are planned, and in general if you’re talking about the 57 member states of the OIC (including “Palestine”) they are planned by the government.”

    These things can also be staged by approved NGOs. Which will be admittedly virtually branches of government.

    But I thought a bit more illustration was needed. We’re talking about a people whose grievances against the West go back beyond the loss of al Andalus in 1492. How dare the Spaniards fight back against the righteous Muslims and steal what belonged to Islam and Allah for all eternity by right of conquest!

    Fighting back isn’t the recruiting tool, though. Knuckling under and dancing to their tune is the recruiting tool. Hillary Clinton et al would have you believe that if an obscure nobody so-called pastor is going to bbq a quran that’s the recruiting tool. No, that’s way off.

    How it works is like this. They pick a day to demonstrate their power. There’s no day the Muslims couldn’t find tens of things to take offense at. Throw a dart, pick a day, take offense. So the day might be the Jerusalem wine festival or ANZAC Day in Auckland or bbq a quran day in the US. It offends Muslims. So they organize and express their offense.

    The recruiting tool is when USG officials bow and scrape and submit to Muslim sensebilities and lean on idgit Florida pastors not to burn the Quran. That demonstrates their power. That separates the strong horses from the weak horses, as OBL insightfully put it.
