Attorney For Whistleblower: 400 U.S. Missiles Stolen In Benghazi

Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- On August 12th 2013, Joe DiGenova, attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers, told Washington D.C.’s WMAL that one of the reasons people have remained tight-lipped about Benghazi is because 400 U.S. missiles were “diverted to Libya” and ended up being stolen and falling into “the hands of some very ugly people.”

DiGenova represents Benghazi whistleblower Mark Thompson. He told WMAL that he “does not know whether [the missiles] were at the annex, but it is clear the annex was somehow involved in the distribution of those missiles.”

He claimed his information “comes from a former intelligence official who stayed in constant contact with people in the special ops and intelligence community.” He said the biggest concern right now is finding those missiles before they can be put to use. “They are worried, specifically according to these sources, about an attempt to shoot down an airliner,” he claimed.

On August 4, Breitbart News covered a report in The Telegraph that said 35 CIA operatives were working in Benghazi when the attack against the consulate took place. The Telegraph claimed these operatives were allegedly in an “annex near the consulate [working] on a project to supply missiles from Libyan armories to Syrian Rebels.”

Months earlier, following then-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s February 7 testimony on Capitol Hill about the Benghazi attacks, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) suggested that one of the causes behind the terrorist attack “may have been that there was a gun running operation going on in Benghazi, leaving Libya and going to Turkey and [distributing] arms to the [Syrian] rebels.”

      All 0f this crap going on in the middle east since 1967 can be dumped in the lap of one country . This is not for the good of America or any other nation .

    4. During the Libya debacle, the US military was given a stand down order and 20,000 Stinger missles walked away from Khaddaffi’s armory. Most of the clandestine efforts by the CIA since then have been frantic running around and spreading millions of dollars trying to buy them “back” from the folks that stole them. Thus far we have managed to ransom about 5000 of those. Means that there are still about 15,000 Stinger missiles floating around in the hands of Al Qaida, a story which the mainstream media has studiously avoided. Although this occured overa year ago, they have now been loose for a considerable amount of time so it is not unreasonable to surmise that some of them have made it across the Atlantic and up through Mexico and are waiting to be deployed against an airliner full of American citizens over some American city. Which is why the DC crowd is tentatively talking about it now to see how much outrage they will incur and so that it will not come out as being totally caught off guard when a couple hundred American vacationers and business people explode over L.A. or St. Louis.

    5. Sorry to say, but even the US military doesn’t have 20,000 Stinger missiles; let alone enough of them to give away to Libya/ Syrian rebels/ or other groups… and the case in which a Stinger Missile is stored? about 7 ft x 1.5 ft x 1.5 ft… so 20,000 of them would fill up a whole hell of a lot of tractor trailers/ warehouses… pick up truck “technicals”… I call BS. Please get the Editor to fact check your article/ submission…

      Now, it would be bad that al Queda in Africa/ Hamas/ Hezzbolah or any other of the world’s terrorist groups got a hold of even one Stinger missile with a WORKING BATTERY, COOLANT CARTRIDGE, and Good shape electronics… so, yes, keep hunting them down.

      Oh, by the way, the main photo is a SAM-7 Grail ( Russian, Strela 2). and my reading about the issue is that the US CIA/ Contract informants were searching for Russian SAM-7 (not US Stingers) which Gaddafi had procured during the 70-80-90′s… and then these were scattered to the winds during the rebellion there. Now, keep in mind too, you got to keep these special missiles in their boxes, nice temp and humidity, keep the batteries up to snuff and the coolant bottles all a-okay… although some of them are still ready to shoot, hard to think 20,000 are.

      Stand by to be prepared! Join your Local Well Regulated Militia; even if it is only “An Army of One!” tm

      This is true about the Sam 7′s. They are very sensitive, but can we be sure that is all they have. Maybe there is a reason why Hillary didn’t want it to make any difference. I would rather over estimate the enemy that under estimate him and suffer the consequences.
