The ongoing coup against President Donald Trump has pivoted from Russia to Ukraine, as information about events taking place inside and surrounding Ukraine, former Vice-President Joseph Biden, Hunter Biden, and pay-to-play operations are gradually being made known to the American public. This “open secret,” however, has an even darker history that’s related to the “Arab Spring,” the attacks in Benghazi, and the “President Hillary Clinton War Plan” that was interrupted with the election of President Trump. 

I first published this report on July 24, 2014 – five-and-a-half years ago – based, in part, on information I received from a source with contacts inside the intelligence community. The “blowback” I received for publishing this article was more intense than I expected. In consideration of the headlines today, and the limited understanding by most people in the West about Ukraine, the larger plan for global conflict, and the relevance of Ukraine today, I decided to revisit and update my report. The following is the report published on July 24, 2014, with a few important updates. It proves that the information provided by my source with IC contacts was dead-on accurate. Additionally, I believe that it proves that a Hillary Clinton Presidency would have led the US – and the world – into their desired outcome of global conflict.   

Readers who followed my many reports exposing the truth about the September 11, 2012 attack of the CIA compound in Benghazi that killed four Americans have witnessed the painfully slow process of that truth gradually evolving into the mainstream, validating my information and source. I noted then and note now that we have witnessed the painfully slow process of various truths that gradually evolved into the mainstream, validating my information and source.

From beginning to end, the West, and particularly Americans, were lied to about nearly every aspect of the United States involvement, specifically under Barack Hussein Obama and the Hillary Clinton Department of State, in Libya, Syria and the entirety of the “Arab Spring” in the Middle East. These lies were deliberately advanced by a captured corporate media adherent to the same ideological bias as the Renegade-in-Chief – Barack Hussein Obama – and his staff of co-conspirators, combined with colluding pseudo-Conservative Republicans in Congress and their sycophants in the media to keep the truth from the American public.

The plain and simple truth that few are willing to address publicly is that we were being led into World War III by globalists who are busily setting fires to the geopolitical dry tinder spread across the Middle East, North Africa and now Ukraine to create a global conflagration. World War III needs to happen at any cost, and the environment is such that the slightest misstep, mistake or event by design could ignite a global conflict that will change the world forever. It’s just that simple.

Myopia of World Affairs

Those who dutifully watch the network news channels, listen to political talk radio or read the analysis of political and news pundits in print will fall perilously short of understanding the bigger picture of world events. We are watching a target-rich environment of increasingly dire headlines, each seemingly fundamentally different and unrelated. A more extensive investigation into each event, however, suggests otherwise. World events, despite their geographical distance and categorical differences, do not happen in a vacuum. The world superpowers are actively engaged in asymmetrical warfare by proxy. War by proxy, however, could change in an instant. We’re already seeing countries choosing sides in the coming global conflict.

It is admittedly difficult to understand how an invasion of illegal aliens is related to events taking place in North and West Africa and Ukraine, for example. Nonetheless, it is symptomatic of our myopic affliction that is exacerbated by the constant barrage of lies coming from our leaders and parroted by analysts, intellectuals, pundits and “experts” who ultimately work for the globalists. Others, perhaps, merely cannot see beyond the fictitious political paradigm or choose not to stray beyond their comfort zone of normalcy. Regardless of the affliction or reason, it’s time that we all address what is taking place as adults, as things are about to become deadly serious for each of us.

U.S., Russia, Syria, and Ukraine

Veiled by the dust cloud of the Arab Spring that has been shown to be planned, orchestrated and carried out in large part by Western intelligence interests spearheaded by a rogue criminal cabal of globalists led by the Renegade-in-Chief and his co-conspirators, the world watched as Hillary Rodham Clinton could not contain her glee that Libyan leader Gadaffi has been toppled and murdered.

That set in motion the creation of the largest international arms running operation in the Middle East in violation of U.S. and international law. Working in tandem with the British, French, Qataris and other countries advancing a Saudi agenda, hundreds of tons of arms shipments were being ferried from Libya to strategic staging areas near the Syrian border, including sites in Turkey.

The target was then and now (by the globalists) continues to be Syria. Warnings from Russia failed to slow or stop this agenda of taking out Assad and infusing Syria into the growing transnational Islamic Caliphate. Turkey, a vital member of NATO seemed to be caught “between Iraq and a hard place,” as the Saudi-backed West plans for reshaping the Middle East used that nation as a staging area to arm the otherwise impotent anti-Assad rebels with better equipment and manpower.

Perhaps that was the reason for the meeting between U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and the Turkish representative at the villa in Benghazi. Perhaps it was to convey the message that Putin would no longer tolerate the deliberate destabilization inside Syria, which holds both economic and militarily strategic advantages for Russia. Yet, the process of Western-backed destabilization continues, although not in the manner that was initially intended.

As I previously noted based on information from my intelligence source, the rebels were to be eventually aided by NATO under a convoluted pretext of protecting the refugees and victims of this “spontaneous” civil war in Syria. Attempts to overtly intervene in Syria by Saudi-backed Western interests were attempted at least four separate times, yet each time the plans were thwarted and exposed. Alternate plans had to be implemented.

Today (in 2014), we see U.S. equipped and Western-backed ISIS, the most insanely ruthless Islamic war machine opening a new front against Syria. This was not by accident but by design, as the U.S. military virtually handed over the keys to the arms depots and vehicles left in Iraq. In addition to the retaking of Iraq city by city, Syria is next on their march in the larger scheme to build a Caliphate across the region. All of this is taking place with the imprimatur of Barack Hussein Obama, who by all appearances, seems to be a foreign asset of the Saudi royals. (2019 Note: This policy would have been further advanced by a Hillary Clinton Presidency, but was stopped by President Trump). Perhaps now those who had the audacity to vilify patriotic Americans who dared question his undocumented origins, bona fides and ultimately, his allegiance should consider the last six years.

With the Middle East in flames (in 2014) and as we stand at the precipice of global conflict, it is beyond the time that we should know to whom the Renegade-in-Chief answers, for it is certainly not the American people. Nor is it the Syrian people, where the Western-backed support of the rebels has caused over a quarter of a million deaths millions of refugees.

Against that backdrop, is it not clear that we are fully engaged in an all-out proxy war against Russia, from Syria and now to Ukraine? For it is a similar template used in Syria that we see in Ukraine.

As we are being fed a steady diet of misinformation about Ukraine and Russia, specifically about [the 2014] downing of two Ukrainian fighter jets, perhaps now would be a good time to ask a simple, but critically important question:

Is it possible, since Russia has one of the most extensive satellite and radar systems covering every inch of Ukraine and surrounding areas, that the fighter jets might very well be NATO assets, piloted by NATO pilots, and taking off from NATO airfields, maybe from places like Azerbaijan? How might such a revelation change the perception of world events, should it become known that NATO and other Western interests area behind the recent escalation?

Do not make the mistake of considering Libya, Syria and Ukraine as different crime scenes with different motives and suspects. At most, they can be considered as primary and secondary crime scenes, but the motives and bloody fingerprints of the usual globalist suspects are common to them all.

Like misanthropic serial killers, they will not stop until they’ve accomplished their objectives of the wholesale slaughter of a misled and myopic and population.

As stated by my intelligence source, this entire situation contains all of the elements that could result in things getting out of control very, very quickly. It’s time to lose the blinders, stop accepting the official narratives and abbreviated sound bites, and understand that our very existence is at stake.

On October 8, 2012, I wrote a column titled Lemmings.. At the precipice of WWIII that connected the dots between the Arab Spring, Benghazi, Syria and Russia. My report was published ten months before the August 21, 2013 chemical weapons attack in Ghouta that caused the excruciating deaths of an estimated 1500 men, women and children in this eastern suburb of Damascus and four-and-a-half years before the events of last week.

My 2012 report originated from information provided to me by one of two sources within the intelligence community who outlined the “big picture,” from the Arab Spring to Benghazi through the present. The information provided to me then was validated and expanded by a 2016 article titled Death Race Damascus Update and proved correct by the events of last week.

Accordingly, when I am contacted by this or other sources operating at the same level as I was on Saturday, I tend to pay attention. Based on information provided to me during that contact, it was made clear that the Globalist agenda is being ramped up and that their objectives have not changed. Furthermore, unless and until the big picture is understood, it will be difficult to properly contextualize and understand current events.

Excerpted from the 2012 article: “All that is needed now is for a dutiful media to present one image, a video, or some other ‘proof’ that Assad or someone else is using, or has their hands on, unconventional weapons. This will provide the necessary pretext for the U.S. and NATO, to intervene and ramp up the war against Assad.”

Exactly as scripted, that chemical weapons attack took place less than a year after my column was published. Internal pushback within our government, however, caused the reins to be pulled back on any military response in 2013. That pushback originated from the same growing sentiment that ultimately gave rise to a Donald J. Trump Presidential victory.

An “About Face”

On June 15, 2013, Donald Trump tweeted that intervention in Syria would be a serious mistake. Shortly after the 2013 chemical weapons attack in Ghouta, Donald Trump tweeted, on September 5, 2013 “many very bad things will happen” should the U.S. respond militarily.

Today, speculation within the media and by talking heads is rampant about this “about face” of President Trump. Based on the information I received from my intelligence source on Saturday, April 8, 2017, “many bad things” are indeed about to happen. Additionally, very few of the pundits who are either siding with Donald Trump or castigating him about his military response have a clue about what lies ahead.

The reason behind the “about face” of President Trump are beyond the scope and purpose of this report, but will be addressed in future columns.

I would be remiss, however, not to point out that our current world position is the result of a quarter of a century of war and U.S. intervention in the Middle East, beginning in modernity with the “New World Order” dictates of former President George H.W. Bush as we entered “Desert Storm” in 1991.

More recently, eight years of advancing the Islamic agenda by Barack Hussein Obama II, as well as Hillary Rodham Clinton serving as a Muslim Brotherhood operative during her tenure as Secretary of State, the infiltration of our government by Muslim-Globalist-Communists over the last decade, and the growing incursion of Islamists, Socialists and admitted Communists in Congress has softened the backbone of the United States as intended.

Lastly, the parting actions of Barack Hussein Obama II and his assets within the intelligence community and military paved the way for his anticipated successor, Hillary Rodham Clinton, to continue the reshaping the power structure of the Middle East for an Islamic Caliphate at the behest of Saudi Arabia. When the Clinton coronation failed to materialize, Obama instead exacerbated the situation by employing “scorched-earth” tactics within the intelligence agencies and the military hierarchy.

It is also critical for everyone to understand that John McCain, Lindsey Graham and many other high-ranking Republicans have acted in concert with Obama and are continuing their Globalist agenda unmolested.


Asymmetrical Response

The focus of this report is to understand that the response to U.S. intervention and the condemnation at the UN by US Ambassador Nikki Haley by Russia will be asymmetrical at first, patterned after the US actions against the former Soviet Union. The first blow will be to our economy and the US Petrodollar.

Putin remembers well the tactics and fatal blows that brought down the former Soviet Union, and will respond in kind against the United States. This makes sense when it is understood that the US Dollar exists as the world’s reserve currency because of our ability to assure the free flow of oil to the world.

The first target, then, will be the US Dollar and our economy. How this will play out is speculative, but a proxy attack against one of our naval assets to disrupt the flow of oil might be considered.

Further attacks against the US will be by proxy as well, including potential cyber-attacks that also target our financial base and our critical infrastructure.

Blame Game

It was not coincidental that the legitimacy of US President Donald Trump was—and continues to be—attacked by the Progressives and Globalists as he is depicted as an asset of Russia. Obama, working as an obedient operative of the Globalists, and the embedded Globalists themselves have hedged their bets to make certain that the fall of the United States is laid squarely on his lap, rather than at the hands of the enemies within.

Some might call it “misdirected attribution,” a phrase that depicts the tactics of the Deep State that has been exposed by Wikileaks. I prefer to call it what it is: Treason.

To paraphrase Donald Trump from 2013, one thing is certain: Many very bad things are about to happen.

The following is a cursory investigative summary that explains the significance of the email “scandal” that erupted right before the 2016 election and how the Obama Department of Justice under Loretta Lynch worked in conjunction with the Hillary Clinton campaign to obstruct justice.

It is submitted as a foundation for forthcoming documentation that will detail extensive criminal corruption, the scope of which is breathtaking and a threat to our national security by the Hillary Clinton State Department and the Obama White House.

What follows is a brief glimpse into a murky and crowded swamp of criminality that involves personal enrichment through weapons trafficking and the methods to hide the criminal behavior of those involved. It includes the use of the Department of State, the Department of Justice, the Executive branch, and the Clinton Foundation, along with many co-conspirators in government and the media.

Testifying under oath before Congress in 2013, Hillary Clinton stated that she knew nothing about the weapons shipments from Libya and Qatar to Syria. Thanks to the release of John Podesta emails and other documents by Wikileaks, it is now beyond any reasonable doubt that she lied. Her actions resulted in not only the deaths of four Americans, including a U.S. ambassador in the September 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi, but the deaths of countless innocent people due to the destabilization of the Middle East.

Equally disgusting is that she and others used her position as U.S. Secretary of State, serving from January 21, 2009 through February 1, 2013 for personal enrichment through the Clinton Foundation, and again lied about it despite the revelations by Wikileaks.

Hillary Clinton not only lied under oath about the arms shipments, with a large number of those weapons coming into possession of ISIS as well as anti-Assad terrorists, but also lied to the American people about the attack at Benghazi, her emails, and many other related matters. This particular area of the swamp is not only deep, but crowded as well.

Hillary Clinton & The Clinton Foundation, Arms Merchants

Under Hillary Clinton’s leadership, the U.S. Department of State approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations (from October 2010-September 2012), representing almost twice the amount approved by the State Department under the second term of George W. Bush for the same time period. It seems hardly a coincidence that each government benefactor of those arms sales gave money to the Clinton Foundation.

Under Clinton’s leadership, an additional $151 billion of separate Pentagon-brokered deals to 16 countries was authorized. Again, all 16 countries donated to the Clinton Foundation. Compared to a similar period under Bush, this denotes a 143 percent increase of arms sales to Clinton Foundation donors.

It is important to note that federal law prohibits foreign governments seeking clearance through the U.S. State Department to buy U.S. arms from making campaign contributions. This prohibition was designed to prevent foreign interests and governments from using cash to influence national security policy.

Nothing, however, prevents such foreign interests from contributing to a philanthropic foundation. Enter the Clinton Foundation.

The Clinton emails (those deleted and archived outside of investigative purview), the Podesta emails released by Wikileaks, and other relevant documents provide prima facie evidence of personal enrichment by Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and others through arms sales to prohibited countries—including and especially ISIS. They also provide documentation of evidence tampering and obstruction of justice, and provide insight into the individuals and groups involved.

The emails are alleged to include other criminal activities as well, although these activities will be addressed separately for both clarity and brevity.

Many within the U.S. government as well as the media have misrepresented the importance of the emails, from those on Clinton’s private server to those found on the laptop of Anthony Weiner/Huma Abedin.  Understanding the mishandling of the Weiner/Abedin emails by the U.S. Department of Justice, the FBI and others will provide insight into how the investigation was hijacked and diverted from within.

Rigging the criminal investigation


The criminal hubris of the Obama regime and the Clinton criminal cabal is unparalleled in American history. 

The Hillary Clinton emails, the Anthony Weiner emails, the infamous Comey letters, the Department of Justice obstruction of justice by Loretta Lynch, Huma Abedin, and many others, along with the media manipulation are all incestuously related in this vast criminal enterprise.

A large alligator in the murky swamp of criminal corruption is John Podesta. Wikileaks began releasing the emails of John Podesta on October 7, 2016 and continues to date, bringing the total upwards of 70,000 emails and related email chains.

Podesta is a long-term associate of the Clintons and was President Bill Clinton’s Chief of Staff from 1998 until 2001, and served as counsel to Barack Obama. He and his brother Tony own the Podesta Group (a large DC lobbying firm). He is also the chairman of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a Washington DC-based think tank, and perhaps most importantly, served as Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign chairman.

When the news broke that some 650,000 emails were found on the laptop of disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner, husband of Hillary Clinton’s closest aide Huma Abedin, Loretta Lynch immediately began to mitigate any potential damage by assigning Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik to lead the investigation into those emails. 

Her choice could not be a more blatant conflict of interest. Peter Kadzik has been a good friend of John Podesta since their days at Georgetown Law School. In fact, many emails between Podesta and Kadzik were among those released by Wikileaks, and were also alleged to be on the Weiner/Abedin laptop. In one of the Wikileaks emails, it was John Podesta who described Kadzik as a “fantastic lawyer who kept me out of jail.” Kadzik’s son also emailed John Podesta, asking for a job on the Clinton campaign.

Peter Kadzik also represented Podesta during the Monica Lewinsky investigation. Perhaps most telling of all is the role Peter Kadzik played in the controversial Clinton pardon of fugitive Marc Rich, who is best known for founding the commodities company Glencore, being indicted in the U.S. on federal charges of tax evasion and illegally making oil deals with Iran during the Iran hostage crisis.

Interestingly, it was Rudy Giuliani who built the case against Rich. Another familiar name, James Comey, the current FBI Director eventually took over the pardon investigation. Rich ultimately received a pardon from President Bill Clinton on January 20, 2001, his last day in office.

The pardon did not come without a price, however. Denise Rich, the wife of Marc Rich, gave more than $1 million to the Democratic Party, including more than $100,000 to Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign.

In short, Loretta Lynch appointed a suspect of the email investigation to take the lead for the Department of Justice in that very investigation. This alone should clearly reveal that the motives of the Justice Department, presumably acting at the direction of the Obama White House, were never to conduct an honest investigation, but to stop any honest investigation from the start.

Considering that Kadzik was both a suspect and the lead investigator of the latest email “scandal,” and given the fact that Kadzik represented both Podesta and Marc Rich, the motivation behind the peculiarly timed release of the Marc Rich records to the FBI online archive might be better understood.

As briefly explained here, the vast Clinton criminal cabal is well entrenched and extends far back into the Clinton White House and Hillary Clinton’s tenure as a U.S. Senator.  It expanded through the Clinton Foundation and during her tenure as Secretary of State. It involves the heads of state of other countries, as well as leaders within our own.

Understanding this will provide the necessary context to understand the importance of everything from the Clinton emails, the Arab Spring, the attacks in Benghazi, and the obstruction of justice as evidence of criminality, and why it is unlikely that Clinton and her close associates will go away quietly.

A war is being waged between those attempting to expose the criminality of the globalists, and those attempting to not just engage in a massive cover-up, but maintain power. The battle is raging. It is a very dangerous time in America.

The House Select Committee of Benghazi released its long awaited report this week, consisting of just over 800 pages separated into five sections (I-V) and 12 appendices1. Having combed through the entire report and related commentaries since its release on Tuesday, 28 June 2016, numerous confirmations of my initial investigative reports pertaining to this incident and published first on this website exist. This voluminous report further legitimizes the veracity of the information provided by my source within the intelligence community about this incident.

To my disappointment but not surprise, however, this final report lacks critical information about the activities of our intelligence agencies, under the direction of the Obama White House and Clinton State Department, that properly contextualizes the incident. If such information was included, it would likely provide a path for criminal indictments of high-ranking government officials on both sides of the political divide.

Getting to the “Foggy Bottom” of Benghazi
Death race to Damascus continues
The Benghazi deception
The hidden real truth about Benghazi

As I have asserted since the attack on 11 September 2012, the CIA compound in Benghazi was the hub of one of the largest weapons running operations in existence, supplying arms and manpower to various staging areas for use and deployment against the Syrian government of Bashir al Assad.

Activities taking place in northern Libya, specifically Benghazi, Derna and ports across northeastern Libya, have always been about toppling Syria like a real-life version of the game of Risk. Once this supra-Constitutional function of the CIA compound is fully exposed and understood, the reason for governmental obfuscation becomes abundantly clear. It is really just that simple.

Unfortunately, you won’t be informed about this in any official government report or by the captured corporate media.

All of the Congressional committees formed and investigations conducted were never really about getting to the truth, for they would expose the machinations of the globalist power brokers intent on reshaping the power structure of the Middle East. It was all about diverting attention away from this nefarious plot, using a compliant media to conflate facts and assail the intentionally narrow investigative process.

Accusations of a Political Witch-Hunt

Many people, including and especially those politically left of center, have vociferously condemned the time and money spent in investigating the Benghazi attacks. They claim it was never more than a political witch-hunt, and a costly one at that. Citing numerous investigations, from the ARB to the latest House report, they claim that there is nothing new under the sun. And they are partially correct, but for all of the wrong reasons.

From the outset, roadblocks to the truth were erected while the people in positions of power claimed complete cooperation and unfettered access to everyone involved. No matter how many claims of cooperation and transparency were made, the general public found it difficult to see through the smokescreen of deception.

The first lie of the cover-up, perhaps birthed in a cramped office in the White House, was the most egregious and outrageous. That the attacks evolved from a spontaneous demonstration that turned violent against the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi caused by an obscure and amateurish internet video was never the case. The talking points given to then-UN Ambassador Susan Rice by White House political operatives Ben Rhodes and David Plouffe for media dissemination was a smokescreen used to buy time and deflect blame. The corporate media failed to question the ill-spun narrative, providing the necessary ground cover and confusion.

The digital fingerprints of those involved in the exploitation of the video left a trail back to front companies of our own intelligence apparatus, including one company under the control of John O. Brennan, who was subsequently and most conveniently selected to head the CIA almost six months to the day after the Benghazi attack. How serendipitous.

Despite the obvious and plentiful evidence of complicity available to government investigators, this evidence was never followed or considered beyond the most basic acknowledgment.

Hillary Rodham Clinton Lies at Coffin Ceremony

“I’m not the liar, YOU ARE!” -Patricia Smith, mother of Sean Smith, murdered in Benghazi attack

Worse, the now-proven fact that Hillary Rodham Clinton knew that she was perpetuating this lie to the loved ones of the victims of the Benghazi massacre while standing just a few feet from the coffins that contained their remains is perhaps the most unforgivable of her actions. She remains shamelessly unrepentant to the families of those who died. Yet, the outcry against her has been minimized by a compliant corporate media.

Meanwhile, Clinton, her aides and associates, and the members of Obama regime have publicly feigned cooperation with investigative bodies while actually throwing up roadblocks behind the scenes. As written in Part IV, page 2 of the House report is the truth about their cooperation:

“The administration’s frequently stated pledge to comply with ‚Äòall legitimate oversight requests’ is often a hollow prelude followed by delay or refusal to respond to legitimate inquiries. Other congressional committees have reported similar delay and obstruction.”

Therefore, the time and money spent, complained about by the supporters of this cabal, can and should be billed directly to those who have refused to cooperate. Outcries of money wasted on investigations ring hollow in the face of legal maneuverings by these most uncooperative participants. Like the video, the perception of a political witch hunt and the taxpayers’ money expended is a creation of their own doing.

The Magnitude of the Lie

The report released by the House Select Committee on Benghazi created nothing more than a dull thud as it landed atop the table of American jurisprudence. In all of its 800 pages of testimony, appendices, illustrations and findings, there is nothing that addresses the covert operations being conducted by the CIA and other Western intelligence agencies to funnel weapons and personnel for use in Syria and other locations to reshape the power structure of the Middle East.

Doing so would force the Obama-Clinton cabal to admit that our assets were being used by the Saudis and other select Muslim countries to do their dirty work. It would expose the foreknowledge and complicity of not just this regime, but of the top-tier leadership of those in the House and Senate, including Republicans, who quietly went along with the plans of destabilization.

Like experienced magicians who direct the audience’s attention away from where the real action takes place, all eyes have been directed to the lack of diplomatic security afforded to our official presence in this area of the world, made volatile by the Obama-Clinton doctrine of destabilization. The lack of security, while true, was never the real issue. The real action was not taking place at the diplomatic mission, but at the CIA annex where the logistics for the Libyan version of Fast & Furious on steroids was being directed.

Although you will not find it in this report or any of the other reports, it’s about Syria. It’s always been about Syria. It will continue to be about Syria, until the criminal cabal of globalists are successful in gaining control of that country in the proxy fight that is taking place with Russia, which increases the stakes in this real-life game of Risk being played by the globalists.

The game is far from over. The death race to Damascus continues, pushing us closer to global war. The truth continues to buried and the criminal cabal of globalists remain free to continue their agenda without abatement.

Prepare. Pray.

The current threats posed by ISIS, or the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, to world stability in general and to the U.S. specifically are very real and extremely dangerous. However, the origins of the group and hence the threats are not to be believed “as advertised.” We are being subjected to more lies from the White House to Foggy Bottom, along with many elected leaders who know the real story but insist upon pushing a false narrative.

Collectively, they are bringing us to the brink of World War III through Syria, which I have long contended, while simultaneously opening our country to a large scale attack that could equal the September 11, 2001 attacks. Unlike 9/11, however, we know at least part of their strategy.

First, ISIS did not mysteriously or unexpectedly originate from vaporous pockets of Islamic terrorists in an area that is referred to as the Levant, or the geographical region roughly bounded by southern Turkey to the north, Egypt to the south, the Mediterranean to the west and Iraq to the East.¬† No, ISIS was created through an intentional process of deliberate default by the U.S. and Western powers—including Israel, working in conjunction if not on behalf of the Saudis, Kuwait and Qatar. This unconventional alliance will be addressed later, but for now, it must be identified to understand the truly dangerous and evil confederation of complicity.

The formation of ISIS: Conception to birth

To understand the present, we must identify—and fully comprehend—the importance of certain pivotal events that brought us to this point. As the first decade of the 21st century, consumed by the Bush years of wars in Afghanistan and Iraq was coming to a close, elements of Western and Saudi intelligence were deeply involved in orchestrating what is now known as the Arab Spring. As these plans were being laid, the process to select a new U.S. President was in progress. Specifically, the selection of the democratic nominee between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama was at issue.

Given the requirements needed to accomplish such an ambitious objective as reshaping the power structure of the entire Middle East, it is relevant to cite the “odd meeting” that occurred during the Biderberg Conference in Chantilly, Virginia, attended by Obama and Clinton, almost a year to the day (or exactly one calendar year if you use the starting and end dates) before Obama’s infamously important Cairo speech. It was on June 5, 2008 that Obama and Clinton went out of their way to ditch the press and sneak off to the Westfields Marriott Hotel in Chantilly where Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller and other globalist leaders were meeting at the Bilderberg conference. Shortly thereafter, it was Obama who was selected as the democratic nominee and ultimately, the next leader of the United States. A wise selection, perhaps, considering the globalist plans as detailed herein.

Whatever happened at that secret meeting, Obama was ultimately named as the 44th President of the United States, and Hillary Clinton was appointed as his Secretary of State.

From the very outset of the Obama foreign policy agenda, the intent to reshape the power structure of the Middle East was telegraphed to the world, but few understood the far reaching and world changing implications of this policy. On June 4, 2009, Barack Hussein Obama delivered his “New Beginnings” speech at Cairo University as referenced above. Perhaps the new restructuring of power within the Middle East was discussed at the ranch of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, located outside Riyadh, where he spent the night on his way to Cairo. From that point forward, it became increasingly obvious that the Saudi agenda was pushing America’s foreign, strategic and even military agenda throughout the Middle East. Obama’s bow to the Saudi king was deep, all we saw was his bony posterior protuberance, which is a lesson in political, or globalist perspective.

Obama: A necessary Saudi asset

At the risk of appearing to digress, it is nonetheless important to revisit the controversy surrounding the legend of the man who is known as Barack Hussein Obama. We should recall the influence of the Saudis over Obama, from his college years to his presidential campaign. Was it not Saudi influence that paved his way into higher academia? During his campaign where he seemed to be cash poor, was there not controversy surrounding the contributions made to his campaign through anonymous internet donations, made possible through the campaign’s failure to adhere to standard protections against fraudulent and illegal giving? Suddenly, Obama had funds to carry him through the election cycle, many thousands untraceable to their origin but seemingly originating from overseas and in particular, Saudi Arabia.

Let’s also recall that the controversy surrounding the background and Constitutional eligibility of Obama remains at issue. The long form Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) still lacks the proper authentication to pass for legitimate documentation, and the person responsible for its origination was mysteriously the only fatality of nine occupants of a small plane that made a water landing off the coast of Hawaii last year. That’s quite a coincidence.

The truth, at least from my vantage point as a veteran investigator experienced in background investigations of top executives to hold their positions in Fortune 500 companies, the man known as Barack Hussein Obama has failed to furnish any authenticated proof of his Constitutional eligibility to hold office. Contrary to the corporate media, this issue has never been resolved in any court. This raises not merely a point of law, but the subject of allegiance. Look at the world today and ask yourself whether the commissions or omissions of Obama have benefitted the United States. If not, who or what nation appears to be the primary beneficiary of his agenda?

Much like the secret meeting in Chantilly where it would appear that critical decisions were made outside of the public’s purview and in violation of the Logan Act, it appears that there is a hidden power structure behind this particular man, and a concurrent shield of protection by the media to avoid any meaningful probes of his background. To mention any such things, however, is to be shunned, ostracized, and vilified.

ISIS in gestation

It strains credulity that the most powerful intelligence apparatus in the world didn’t see the formation of ISIS coming. The closer one looks, the more that can be seen in the creation of this nebulous entity that is unrestricted by borders, which is a very important and significant characteristic of this threat. ISIS was created by design, with the full knowledge of those in power.

As the world watched the transformation of power in the Middle East through what is referred to as the Arab Spring, American intelligence assets landed on the shores of Libya. The landing contingent included U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was previously involved in diplomatic relations with Syria. Shortly thereafter and with the help of U.S. and other Western and Saudi intelligence assets, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, a now pliant and co-operating ally against terrorists, became the next victim of this U.S.-Saudi led agenda. Hillary Rodham Clinton accepted the news with shameful and unstatesman-like giddiness. In Libya, with Gaddafi removed and his son imprisoned, the U.S., with the aid of the British, French, Saudis, Qataris and others, established the largest CIA logistics center in Benghazi to ship arms and fighters across North Africa to Syria via Turkey.

While Michael Reagan was perhaps the first to write about this illegal covert arms operation in his column Building on a kernel of truth, I have authored more than four dozen reports on the role of Benghazi and the road to World War III. It is Benghazi where the truth must win out to prevent us from entering our death race to Damascus, or the beginning of World War III. To date, everyone has been misdirected, or intentionally directed to the “red herring” of diplomatic security as the proximate cause of the death of four Americans in Benghazi. It is nothing of the sort. The attack at Benghazi was an attack by proxy to stop the flow of arms and fighters on a mission to oust Assad and destabilize Syria, which is Russia’s red line in the sand.

Regarding Benghazi, the Select Committee on Benghazi, led by Trey Gowdy, will begin in about a month. We shall see whether this committee will be effective in ferreting out the truth, or be muzzled like the other queries before it. I expect that we will hear one of two things; either the committee will succumb to the official narrative that Benghazi was “a failure of security,” or less likely, provide the refreshing truth that it was a covert yet broadly orchestrated mission involving interwoven groups running arms and fighters across North Africa with sights set on Syria. The latter would then identify the true beneficiaries of this globalist agenda—the Saudis—and their captive agent in the Oval Office. This will not be permitted to happen, in my view, considering the “gang of eight” who knew the agenda far in advance.

As Benghazi blew up in the faces of Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton, the larger plot to oust Assad had to take different forms. Yet, the American public had awakened, even if for a few moments, and said “no” and “hell no” to yet another offensive or war in the Middle East. This pushback, however, did not stop the Obama-Saudi alliance from additional attempts to engage us in a conflict. We were treated to false flag events that included a chemical weapons attack purportedly conducted at the hands of Assad. Other attempts were made to engage us, yet our collective stomachs were full of the bile of this Renegade-in-Chief’s agenda.

As time marched on, we bore witness to the selection and installation of John O. Brennan as head of the CIA, an interesting choice considering his former involvement not just with the CIA, but with Obama and in particular, the Saudis. It is important to note his reported role in the passport office break-in in 2008, and his possible role with the video that supposedly sparked riots throughout the Middle East, leading to the attacks of 9/11/12. We also saw Hillary Rodham Clinton extricate herself from Foggy Bottom, a political move as she must insulate herself from the continued controversy of a foreign policy contrary to U.S. interests, especially if she intends to seek the 2016 democratic presidential nomination.

Clinton’s natural replacement was none other than John Kerry, whose personal and professional history is conducive to the globalist agenda. It is at this point where we see the actual birth of ISIS.

The birth of ISIS

During John Kerry’s Middle East foreign policy tour during the 2013 Christmas and 2014 New Year, we heard Kerry state that the United States will not intervene in Iraq, which at this time is falling like a rock to jihadist terror groups. It was at this time that ISIS was birthed from conception to reality by Obama’s “hands-off” approach and Kerry’s implementation of the same. The U.S. essentially left our military hardware, Toyota Tundras and Humvees, keys still in the ignition, arms and other assets and walked away upon orders from the Renegade-in-Chief.

This action permitted the formation of a rag-tag group of hardline terrorists to suddenly become fully armed and hardened, now birthed with the necessary firepower to wipe out any Iraqi military and police presence, the presence we trained, equipped and promised to back-up, yet unceremoniously reneged on our promise. This allowed ISIS members to give the Iraqi military and police one of two choices: leave or die. Many chose the former, but unfortunately many others were caught in the latter, looking for the assistance promised by the U.S. They are no longer looking.

Now equipped with some of the best hardware American taxpayer money could buy, ISIS began to grow and overtake the region, perhaps somewhere on the eighth hole of one of Obama’s perpetual golf games. Was it incompetence? It would appear doubtful based on the evidence to date.

ISIS as a threat

Understand that the ouster of Assad against the wishes of Putin remains a primary objective of this globalist crowd of U.S. and foreign leaders. We’ve opened up a new front via the creation of ISIS to get to Assad and Syria, a move fully understood by Putin. Meanwhile, the globalist leaders, including the IMF which was first on the ground in Ukraine, also opened up the Ukrainian front against Russia and Putin, to keep him occupied while the U.S.-Saudi globalist alliance is busy in the Middle East. We are watching a global chess game for power at multiple levels, and these seemingly disparate events are linked by a globalist agenda.

The globalist leaders seem to be making their boldest moves yet to bring about the conditions necessary to unite the world against a nebulous terror threat known as ISIS. The open southern borders have provided unfettered access into the United States by ISIS members, or at least the perception of infiltration, as we prepare for the next 9/11 event. While we’ve seen so many “false flag” scenarios in our lifetime, from the Gulf of Tonkin to more recent domestic events, we can be certain of one thing: an event on par with, or exceeding that of 9/11, is needed to get the attention of the American public. It is the only thing that will serve to galvanize the public into acceptance of a new front, a new war, a new offensive, or the method to get us to rally behind the agenda we have so far rejected. This is the reason that the situation today is so precarious. Simply stated, false flags and the cry for the need of additional foreign entanglements aren’t working anymore.

Is ISIS a threat to us? Indeed it is, but one made in the basement laboratories of the globalists and the lawless leaders of our own government, and those of our allies.

The end-game objective is to create a threat so dangerous and nebulous that we must come together in a globalist fashion. Most Americans would not relinquish their national sovereignty to a one world government structure—not now, not yet. They would not consider a one world, or “new world” order under the present conditions. The attacks of September 11, 2001 softened us up to accept a Third Reich formation of “homeland security” and caused many otherwise rational Americans to accept a fatal blow to our civil liberties. Think about what the next attack of an equal or greater magnitude will accomplish. Oh, by the way, does anyone recall a recent report of a few missing nuclear weapons?

May God be with us all.

Our nation and all of humanity stands at a critical crossroads in history, with Syria as the epicenter of a looming global conflict that will leave no one untouched. Despite a nearly unanimous consensus of the American people against military action in Syria, elements of our government are determined to override the will of the people and push us headlong into war in Syria, which will lead to a much greater conflagration than most are willing to believe or imagine.

As I have extensively written over the last 12 months, we are being pushed into World War III. This war, like others in the past, is based on lies and “false flag” operations, some of which have occurred, some thwarted, and others that loom just over the horizon.

Regular readers of my columns and listeners to my talk show know that the information I’ve provided about Syria and Benghazi has not only been proven accurate, but provided months in advance of the reports by the corporate media and even most conservative talk show hosts. I mention this not for self-aggrandizement, but to validate the credibility and authenticity of my “intelligence insider” who has provided me with this information. He has been extremely accurate on every aspect of what is taking place behind the veil of lies packaged for Western consumption. For the first time ever, this insider has agreed to speak on the record in an exclusive 90-minute interview about what is really taking place behind the curtain of lies and deception.

Despite the risks, he has agreed to lend his voice to the growing opposition to the madness we see taking place at the highest levels of our government, and tell us exactly what appears to be playing out in real-time. The Western-backed uprising in Syria has claimed the lives of around 150,000 men, women and children, and displaced some five million people. If permitted to continue, some estimate the deaths of four million people in Syria alone, with death spread on a wholesale level across the globe. And it’s being done in your name.

The information you will hear in this interview will forever change the way you look at the world today. This source talks explicitly about the incident at the Dyess Air Force Base involving the reported unauthorized shipment of nuclear warheads from that base. The incident at Dyess was broken exclusively by Anthony Gucciardi & Alex Jones of Infowars last Tuesday, on the same day that war hawk Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) made a speech citing the need for the U.S. to attack Syria. During that speech, Graham made the extraordinary and almost surreal statement that failure by the U.S. to intervene could result in nuclear weapons in the hands of terrorists, and that “could result in a [nuclear] bomb coming to Charleston Harbor.” Coincidence?

Consider the incident at Dyess with the details provided by this insider about a little-known incident that took place on Friday, March 8, 1968 involving a rogue Golf II Russian submarine with nuclear missile capabilities and a failed launch against an American city – a false flag event that could have forever changed the course of human history. Never heard of it? Or if you did hear about it, was it the truth?

We have rogue elements within and outside of our government pushing for war. The time clock is running down, and we must wake up, wake others up and take a stand.

This insider did, putting himself and his identity at risk. Why? Because we’re running out of time to stop this madness.

Please listen to this incredible interview here. Meanwhile, please spread it to others so we can collectively stand up against the rogue elements who are intent on exporting death at wholesale levels in your name. In our name. For the sake of all of humanity, it must be stopped.

“Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight? That is something I ask all my prey.” Those are the haunting sentences uttered by Jack Nicholson by his movie persona as the Joker in the 1989 “Batman” movie just before killing his victims.

It’s 24 years later, and we’re not in fictional Gotham. Still, we are about to become the Joker’s real-life prey as the result of the unchecked mischief and outright criminality of multiple presidential administrations and decades of congressional bodies. The question is, will enough Americans awaken to the fact that we’re being lied to before we collectively feel and smell the hot, fetid breath of the Joker on the backs of our necks as those words are whispered? Will we awaken fast enough to take steps to prepare and “get out of the way” of what’s coming?

You must look at the bigger picture, soak in a view from space, to see that we are being led in a dance choreographed perhaps by the devil himself. As always, the devil can be found in the details and amid the hypnotic melody of the orchestra under the pale moonlight. That enchanting melody is about to abruptly change to a crescendo as all elements of a perfect storm are now in place that will change our lives. It will not be the end of the world, but it will be the end of the world as we know it in terms of our lifestyles and the manner in which we are accustomed to living. A dramatic change for all of us is in the offing. We did not arrive at this moment by accident, although it is being made to appear that way. But you must remember, it was no accident.

Last summer of relative world peace?

While most Americans are on mental hiatus and fully immersed in the dog days of summer, the war raging in Syria has taken an ominous turn and is escalating by the day. Nearly two million residents of Syria have been forced to flee their homes since the war began in March 2011. Just within the last five days, upwards of 40,000 refugees fled into Iraq from Syria. Over five-thousand men, women and children fled Syria yesterday alone, and the numbers are now climbing by the hour. Yet, the Western media remains silent on this consequence of Western intervention, while our political leaders from both sides of the ideological divide continue to push their psychotic agenda under the guise of installing democracy.

One must ask exactly what is taking place in Syria, a relatively stable country until the Obamas, Clintons and McCains of the world decided to push their agenda of change, that would cause normal, middle-class people and families to leave their homes and jobs to flee into war-torn Iraq? These refugees are not “street people,” or previously displaced and homeless families. No, they are the equivalent of our middle class, and they are running, not walking from their homes, taking only what they can carry and leaving all else behind.

Other refugees are fleeing into Turkey, Jordan, and Lebanon as the anti-Assad “rebels,” who only remain viable because of the continued covert assistance from the U.S. and British-led alliance. The truth is that there was no civil war in Syria until these political marionettes on both sides of the political aisle sold their very souls to the globalist psychopaths who want to plunder and control the planet’s resources, specifically oil, natural gas and money, so they can control the future of not only the Middle East, but of the world.

If you have fallen into the trap of believing that the much celebrated Arab Spring that also included the toppling of Gaddafi’s Libya, Egypt and the “uprisings” in Syria is about the advancement of democracy and freeing the oppressed, you are the unwitting victim of the lapdog media conglomerate playing the devil’s waltz. If you believe that this is about the mere politics of Middle East Islam, you are being played for a fool.

If you believe that what you’ve witnessed over the last few years – or decades – is merely about the Middle East, that it’s limited to events “over there,” then you are not seeing the bigger picture. You are not thinking big enough, because the enormity of the lie that is being perpetuated by the powers making the political marionettes dance to the devilish tune is being hidden from you. The Arab Spring and the American activities in Syria were never about a “reset for democracy” as the globalists want you to believe. Never.

It is about a much larger reset, a realignment of power on a global level, the disassembly and reassembly of global power and massive transfers of wealth. It is a plan to control all of the world’s energy and economy by controlling all of the energy and economic chokepoints that will result in a massive power shift into the hands of the hidden puppeteers along with the internationalist bankers and their visible ilk. It’s not limited to events a half-world away, but it is part of a larger global plan. Whether you are reading this in the comfort of your living room in the heartland of the United States, Canada, or any other so-called “free” country, you will be affected by the coming events of this global reset, and you will feel the pain from these events.

As I have asserted since exposing the true nature of the attacks in Benghazi, which were coordinated at a nation-state level and conducted by proxy to stop and expose the covert operations of the U.S., British and other NATO forces for the advancement of the globalist plan to oust Assad, Syria is the fuse that will ignite World War III. The events within Syria have escalated since the hot and humid air of summer captivated and diverted the attention of most Americans, and have ramped-up exponentially over the last week.

The Syrian refugee problem will now provide the likes of political marionettes like John McCain the plausible cover to double down in Syria for “humanitarian” purposes. Cue the applause from those still captivated by the political theater consisting of television and radio talk shows that serve as entertainment for those less informed, those sitting on the sidelines of this devilish dance clinging to the hope that things will change with the next election. Can’t you just picture the Sunday morning news talk shows being populated by political puppets parroting the need to send more of our men and women into the geopolitical sand box on the playground of the military-industrial complex to provide “humanitarian aid” for those who have been displaced by their policies?

How grand the plan, when Americans can be programmed to cheer on command those who will send our family members, in the form of military might, to solve a problem they themselves caused! It is a virtual jobs program for the political-military-industrial complex and a way to line the pockets of the political puppets of the globalists. Sadly, we cheer and waste time by choosing political sides when in reality, it is the agenda of the global power elite conducting the orchestra, playing a tune to which we are all dancing.

Can’t you just hear the orchestra changing their tune from an enchanting waltz toward a crescendo while the orchestra leader grins like the Joker before killing his prey? As the leaves on the trees begin to turn, and as Americans and people all through the Western world are suddenly released from the grip of the dog days of summer, it is likely that people will suddenly awaken to a different reality.

While vacationing Americans were busily burying their toes in the Fukushima-tainted sand on west coast beaches, tainted by an event that few seem to care about despite the enormity of the continuing disaster, Syrians were burying their dead. To date, estimated deaths in Syria from the “benevolent” export of democracy range anywhere between 130,000 to 150,000. The deaths of men, women and innocent children is a eugenicist’s dream for population reduction.
While we in the West busily built castles in the sand, the machinations of the globalist plotters were busy in their castles of Camelot, preparing their orchestra and readying their next moves on this global dance floor. Many never noticed the tempo changing and the escalation of events carefully choreographed under the pale moonlight.

The tune of the orchestra is indeed changing. Directly from the percussion section, an arms depot in the Syrian port city of Latakia was bombed on July 5, 2013, in an effective raid that targeted Russian-made, Yakhont anti-ship missiles. While Israel declined to make any comment on the bombing raid, the British Sunday Times reported that “three anonymous Obama administration officials” leaked that the raid was carried out by Israel using Dolphin-class submarine-based drones.

Again from the percussion section carefully choreographed with the lights display, an immense fireball was seen over the Syrian city of Homs, where a weapons depot was destroyed on August 1st. These were Russian weapons. The blast reportedly killed about two dozen people, many civilians. This particular bombing caught the attention of many who are asserting that the blast was the result of a never-before seen and very advanced hybrid tactical nuclear weapon. Many will mock and marginalize those who dare suggest that the attack could have been nuclear in nature, asserting that the tell-tale signs of such a blast are absent, and therefore such claims are ridiculous.

Could it be that this attack was carried out by a very specialized drone with an exotic payload that we have never seen or known exists? What if that was the case? If so, have we just witnessed, but not seen, an escalation in the war between nations states?

The long dance with the devil

We are seeing the end of the beginning, not the beginning of the end. Since the onset of the first Gulf War, we have effectively been involved in Iraq for the last quarter of a century. Think about that. The Arab Spring and the plans to reshape the Middle East and ultimately, the world that also included the murderous attacks in Benghazi on the night of September 11, 2012 are part of a larger agenda, a bigger lie, and a longer dance with the devil. And the devil always collects his due.

This is the reason that under the current system, the American people will never be told the truth about Benghazi. The truth is that exposing Benghazi would expose the geopolitical plots, plans and schemes of our elected officials, acting in concert with other foreign interests, globalists and international banking interests dancing with the devil. It’s been done and continues to be done in our name, and we are being laughed at for not seeing the complete picture.

Amid the laughter, there are more lies. Such complicity extends to the August 1, 2012 “revelation” reported by CNN that there were up to 35 CIA assets in Benghazi at the time of the attack. It was presented as groundbreaking news to the truth-deprived American public. But that too is a lie. It is a product of political semantics, albeit more refined than the now infamous Clintonesque redefinition of the word “is.”

The truth is that the Hillary Clinton State Department, acting on behalf of the Obama-Jarrett-Saudi royal elite, sent Ambassador Stevens to Libya with about 100 CIA “assets” to work with the Gaddafi opposition forces. As documented in my last report, this was just one step of a larger plan to use Libya as a logistics hub for arms to topple the Syrian government. That plan was hatched years before and involved the British and the French.

The arms shipments from Libya were coordinated from the CIA compound in Benghazi concurrent with the Ambassador’s arrival. No fewer than five-(5) warehouses were used in Benghazi and Misrata to store the weapons, which were then shipped out of Libya from multiple ports, including Misrata, Benghazi and Dernah. As such, there were many more than 35 CIA “assets” in Benghazi and throughout the region. Based on inside intelligence information, the number of U.S. and foreign intelligence assets “could well reach the four figure mark.” But to the average American dancing with the devil, the words of Hillary Clinton can be heard from the dance floor… “what difference does it make?”

The original plan to topple Assad continues to move forward. Benghazi was merely a speed bump on the road to Damascus. Indeed, we are in a longer dance with the devil, but the tempo is about to change.

As written by Michael Reagan in his article titled Building on a kernel of truth, “For Russia, Syria, not Iran, is the hidden tripwire for WWIII, and the battles this time around will not favor us by focusing on our military strengths. Instead, our opponents intend to tear a page from the last chapter of this chronicle and attempt to defeat us by attacking our vulnerable economic underbelly: our oil-backed dollar.”

For those who have read this far, it is in this area where we will feel the most immediate pain in the West. Sadly, most will never see it coming, or realize that the destruction of our economy, the killing of the U.S. dollar, was not some unfortunate and unavoidable cosmic event, but the dish best served cold: the revenge of Russia’s Putin.

Coming next: The Perfect Storm

By Douglas J. Hagmann

It will be exactly 40 years ago this May 17th that the Senate Watergate Committee, a special, broad committee convened by the United States Senate, began hearings to investigate the Watergate burglaries and a criminal cover-up of those activities. At the epicenter of those hearings was then-President Richard Nixon.

A year later, the committee released its 1,254-page report of findings. When the dust settled, forty administration officials were indicted, and several of Nixon’s aides were charged and convicted for obstruction of justice and other crimes.

A cover-up pointed directly to the White House. Facing impeachment proceedings, then-President Richard M. Nixon resigned, assuming his place in American history as the only president ever to resign. It was described as the worst scandal in U.S. history… perhaps until now.

If history tells us anything, it tells us that it’s not just about the crime, it’s also about the cover-up. It’s about seeking the truth but being stonewalled at every turn and being treated as subjects undeserving of the truth rather than citizens asking reasonable questions but being denied answers.

The same level of inquiries that unraveled the complexities of the Watergate cover-up are required to unravel the ball of lies that surrounds the September 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including a sitting U.S. Ambassador. Within this ball of lies, however, exists not only the covert agenda of an administration, but the fate of the world. Unraveling this ball of lies will reveal official government actions that have been and continue to be performed in our name but without our consent. It will reveal a government agenda that has have spun wildly out of control, leaving no one accountable as we stand at a very critical moment in world history. It’s about a cover-up of monumental proportions that is reminiscent of, but hardly in league with, the cover-up of a generation ago.

Today, the stakes are much higher, as we stand at the precipice of a global conflict because of deeds being done in our name under a level of unprecedented and unchecked deception. Ultimately, it’s about getting the truth, which has been kept from each of us through lies of commission and omission, clever semantics, and outright refusals to provide answers to important questions. We were force-fed a preplanned lie from day one, much like the thinly veiled cover story of the Watergate burglary, but with much greater consequences.

All investigations, however, must have a beginning. On May 8, 2013, the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform will conduct a single, day-long hearing on the events that took place in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including a U.S. ambassador.  Interestingly, the hearing is being conducted under the title Benghazi: Exposing Failure and Recognizing Courage.

This one-day hearing is being convened to “examine evidence that Obama Administration officials have attempted to suppress information about errors and reckless misjudgments” and will include some witness testimony. That seems to be a fairly ambitious agenda for a single day of investigation in Washington. It is, however, a start and an opportunity for all Americans to see just how deep the lies go.

Demanding answers

The hearing is a result, in part, of the “interim progress report” released by the House committee on Benghazi last week. Clearly, the information contained in this and other reports illustrates that there is a much deeper, much larger, and much more sinister plan that is being covered up by administration officials.

Forty years ago the cover-up of the motives behind a burglary produced some 319 hours of televised testimony. By comparison, one day of testimony is hardly enough time to conduct a serious investigation, considering what is at stake for our nation.

The events in Benghazi must be understood in the context in which they occurred. A thorough, in-depth investigation will reveal that attack was the result of our broader foreign policy of taking down the leadership of other nations, especially in this case, Libya and Syria. An agenda that has ignited the fuse for World War III. An agenda of militarization of the diplomatic-military-industrial complex that puts us on the road to Damascus at excessive speeds and with reckless abandon.

Given the significance of events, a broader investigation is needed, much like a generation ago. The reason a broader investigation is necessary must also be understood. So too, must the limitations of a single day of hearings.

The big picture

We know that the operations in Benghazi and throughout Libya were coordinated by a number of different government agencies and sub-agencies. Coordination of the activities of these agencies most likely occurred at the behest of persons outside of any individual agencies at an administration security council level. This results in compartmentalization, where one individual, group or agency only has information specific to their part in the operation.

Additionally, the money for the contractors involved in the operations in Libya might have come from one agency or program, although the administration of the contractors might have been directed by officers or agents of yet another agency. When understood in this context, we see that there can be little accountability of the larger operation, especially within the limitations of a single day of testimony.

Due to this operational compartmentalization, various individuals involved in Benghazi have only a single piece of a much larger puzzle. While they might want or feel the need to come forward, they are hamstrung by not having the complete operational picture. Coming forward in a limited venue, without the benefit of inter-agency operational plans, would prevent the pieces of the larger puzzle from being connected. Given such limitations, the testimony of such witnesses could be improperly questioned or even impeached.

To be certain, this administration is very well aware of this compartmentalization and will fight any call for a broader inquiry of all the agencies involved.  A broader investigation, or the seating of a Select Committee on the attacks and subsequent handling of Benghazi, would provide a proper venue where all agencies can be assembled and questioned so that the components of the bigger picture can be gathered.

Tugging at the ball of lies: Some questions requiring answers

What are some of the questions that need to be asked and answered in this hearing? To fully understand the nature of these questions, it is important to understand that Benghazi served as a logistics hub for weapons transfers out of Libya and into the hands of anti-Assad terrorists. Weapons were collected under a buyback program of sorts, to remove them from the hands of the terrorists. Is that what really happened? Important background about Benghazi can be found in the compendium of articles listed at the end of this report.

Meanwhile, here are but a few important questions that need to be asked and completely answered:

This administration would be well advised to keep in mind the fact that lawyers in a courtroom setting know better than to never to ask questions to which they don’t already know the answers.

Where’s the media?

Forty years ago, investigative reporters and journalists sensed blood in the water and chased the blood trail until the bitter end. They operated with less information than today. Yet today, investigating exactly what transpired in Benghazi seems to be limited to the intrepid nature of Adam Housley and Jennifer Griffen, both of Fox News, and perhaps a few others. They are leading the pack, however, and seem to be the only modern day investigative journalists who could unravel the cover-up that is Benghazi, rivaling those who broke the Watergate cover-up a generation ago.

The differences between Watergate and Benghazi are as many as the years that separate the two events, and even more significant. The fate of not only our nation, but of all nations, hang in the balance.

By Douglas J. Hagmann

A letter sent to Ambassador Susan Rice by four-(4) U.S. Senators, dated September 25, 2012, challenged the veracity of her public statements about the murder of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans in Libya on September 11, 2012, during her appearance on the September 16, Sunday morning talk show circuit. The letter requested a “timely response” to how she could not have known by that late date that the Benghazi attack was orchestrated and not a “spontaneous reaction” to an obscure video.

On Sunday, September 16, 2012, I watched Ambassador Susan E. Rice as she appeared on Fox News Sunday. Having personally monitored the open source information about the orchestration of the attack that had already been made public by intelligence officials, I was dismayed at Ms. Rice’s insistence that the murders were a result of hostility fomented by a video of limited dissemination and interest to the community of Islamic jihad. I was not alone.

Following a video clip of White House Press Secretary from Friday, September 14, who also laid the blame for the murders squarely on the YouTube video, Chris Wallace asked Rice, “You don’t really believe that?”

Rice responded:

Chris, absolutely I believe that. Because, in fact, it is the case. We had the evolution of the Arab Spring over the last many months but what sparked the recent violence was the airing on the Internet of a very hateful very offensive video that has offended many people around the world. Now, our strong view is that there is no excuse for violence. It is reprehensible and never justified. But in fact there have been those in various parts of the world who have reacted with violence. Their governments have increasingly and effectively responded and protected our facilities and condemned the violence and this outrageous response to what is an offensive video. But there is no question what we have seen in the past with things like Satanic Verses and cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad there have been such things that have sparked outrage and anger and this has been the proximate cause.”

Now, over three weeks after that terrorist act and nine days after the Senator’s written request, Ms. Rice replied to the Senators’ letter with a three-page response dated October 4, 2012. At least two-thirds of her reply was a strong reassertion that her statements were based on the best information she had at the time. Ambassador Rice continued to deny that she had any information to the contrary and assured the senators that the matter remained under investigation.

It would appear that the public responses made by Ambassador Susan E. Rice on September 16, 2012, as well as her response to the four U.S. Senators, exhibit either complete incompetence or a deliberate attempt to hide the truth behind the attack by order of Barack Hussein Obama. Based on my investigation, as extensively detailed on this website and on Canada Free Press, I believe it is the latter. A detailed explanation of why Ambassador Rice continues to mislead congress and the American public, rooted in an analysis of the Libya theater of operation,  is forthcoming.

“Veni, Vidi, Vici.” Those who endured years of Latin in our education immediately associate and attribute that phrase to Julius Caesar, a reference to his battle with Pharnaces II of Pontus in 47 BC. Caesar reportedly wrote that sentence, which means “I came, I saw, I conquered,” to his friend Amantius after the battle.

Those who managed to escape classes in classical Latin, or perhaps partied through them, might instead associate a convolution of that phrase with the 1984 movie Ghostbusters, in which Bill Murray, portraying Dr. Peter Venkman, used it to describe a battle against a particularly ornery ethereal enemy.

Now, we have a current-day allusion to that phrase used by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton immediately upon hearing of the murder of Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi. Upon being told of his murder, Clinton joked with news reporters between interviews, laughing as she said, “we came, we saw, he died.” Regardless of Qaddafi’s status as a dictator, such demeanor of a U.S. Secretary of State should be alarming to everyone, but especially to those in the media.

In an earlier, seemingly simpler time in U.S. politics, for example, during the pre-millennium election cycles, people might recall that the liberal left and their media co-conspirators embraced another Latin word: gravitas. Ironically used in context to describe the statesmanship conduct of Bill Clinton, the term means to act in a dignified, solemn, and otherwise appropriate manner. Anyone watching the mainstream media heard pundits and anchors waxing on the gravitas attribute of William Jefferson Clinton over all others. The term survived well into the Bush and post 9/11 years, where the media at times accused George W. Bush of not only lacking gravitas but, in later years as metaphorically “spiking the football,” such as with his ill-advised but non-offensive “mission accomplished” speech aboard an aircraft carrier.

By the utterance of one sentence amid cameras and the press, we bear witness not only to the complete absence of gravitas, but we also watch Hillary Clinton “spiking the football” while laughing about a murder that will have an extremely significant impact on the power structure in North Africa and the Middle East.  The only thing missing from the setting in which Hillary Clinton had made her statement was a “mission accomplished” banner across the back of the room.

There can be no doubt that the media is facilitating the progressive agenda as many in the U.S. are stuck in the pop culture context of Ghostbusters while we are instead witnessing a Julius Caesar moment. Meanwhile, Obama is playing Caesar and changing the world dynamic to fit a larger and much more nefarious agenda in plain view of the entire world.

Where are our conservative leaders? Where’s the outrage? Do people not understand the significance of what is taking place at the hand of the Obama?

Unless people begin to understand that what is being done in the name of freedom and democracy has nothing to do with either and do it soon, we are headed for some very dark times.
