"This is a weak foreign policy..." Paul Ryan attacks the Benghazi fail as part of a well-organized multiple front criticism of the Obama foreign policy. The re-elect team at OFA are content to repeat that POTUS killed Bin Laden and saved GM. Benghazi unhorses this slogan. My information is that the consulate guards were both sympathetic to the attackers and most likely participated. The timeline offered so far by the Obama administration does not explain the facts on the ground. For example, why was Chris Stevens left behind during the evacuation to the safe house? Who betrayed the safe house? Why did the security forces reoccupy the consulate? Why were the security forces outgunned more than five hours after the attack started?

My information is that Chris Stevens and the whole consulate was betrayed by Libyan officials to the very gangs that the CIA is recruiting to fight with the so-called "Free Syrian Army." My information is that the FSA is a cut-out for Turkish Intelligence. My information is that the White House chose to misinform the American people about the Benghazi attack, because it does not want to answer questions about the Libyan program to pay Cyrenaica jihadists to fight in Syria for a sham constructiion called the "Free Syrian Army." The Responsibility to Protect doctrine used in Libya is now doubly exposed as fail at Benghazi and fail in Syria. The second Obama administration has committed itself to betrayal after betrayal.
Does Paul Ryan know the details of the Benghazi tragedy, or the CIA recruiting station, or the Libya to Syria railroad, or the FSA fiction? Likely not, but then again, as VPOTUS he would be responsible for the details, as is Joe Biden. Will the story of Benghazi come back again in the last month of the campaign? Likely.
