Near the Italian consulate, Benghazi, 2006

Imagine, pre-9/11/12, that you were responsible for arranging the defense of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Would you have considered American interests and personnel best protected by bringing in a local security outfit called the February 17 Martyrs Brigade?

The question has yet to come up in House hearings, but I think it holds the key to the Obama administration’s betrayal of the American people in “Benghazi-gate.” To an American with common sense not subverted by advanced degrees, the thought of putting Islamic “martyrs” in charge of American “infidels” in Benghazi – which, fun fact, literally means “city of holy warriors” – would trigger the inevitable “heck, no.” And that’s without even knowing what is significant about Feb. 17.

But I’m talking about Washington, D.C. Here, placing the lives of Americans in the hands of a thug-army linked to multiple atrocities and drawn from jihad-epicentral eastern Libya disturbs no collective brain wave. No matter that Benghazi and nearby Derna sent more men, per capita, to Iraq to kill Americans than anywhere else in the world. As far as the Obama administration is concerned, putting local boys in barracks inside the consulate compound was a great idea. Why not? President Obama’s ambassador, the late Christopher Stevens, was, as they say, “reaching out” across the jihad spectrum on official business.

  1. And Obama is refusing to treat this as a terror attack, he is insisting that the FBI alone can stop these attacks, this approach by the Clintons led to the destruction of the Twin Towers and will lead to more attacks in our future.

    We are in a war of survival and need to realize this and fight it as a war of survival.

  2. One of the positive aspects of our turning over Islamic dictatorships to sharia ones, is that it will cause the economic downfall of these states. Now we are suffering the consequences of this war, but nothing compared to the oncoming food shortages, and resultant riots in Muslim nations.

    Who is going to feed these Muslim nations? Money from Saudis is in itself not enough, unless the West allows it to be exchanged to food. What price?

  3. And what price will starving Muslim nations have to pay to eat?

    If my thesis is correct, it may also be time to invest in grain futures. What with interest rates artificially held to virtually zero, nett -3%, there is nothing to lose.

  4. Given the drought and the massive reduction in the grain crops this year we can all expect to pay more for food, unless we in the west are willing to go hungry there will be food riots in the Middle East. These riots will cause calls for the west to send all food to the middle east and let our own people starve.
