    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    diGenova said Monday that he knows what that threat may have involved.

    The loss of the 400 surface-to-air missiles, he told WMAL's audience, 'is why we shut down the 19 embassies recently.'

    'They were afraid that there was going to be a missile attack on one of the embassies. Remember, you can take a shoulder-held missile and shoot it into an embassy. Not just into the sky.'

    'That's what this was all about,' he insisted. 'That's why they're so worried. That's why they have lied repeatedly about what happened in Benghazi, because they are now responsible for all of the stepchildren of violence that happens as a result of this. This is a very serious matter.'

    I would need more verification of that number, 400; but it is plainly obvious that no US consulate or embassy needs 400 missiles to protect itself. Maybe 40 at the most, so what the hell were they doing there?

    Oh look, an impromptu protest, or is it just some guy just out for a walk one night in Benghazi with an AK 47 that decided to go kill some Americans, or maybe kill some Americans and steal some Stinger Missiles.

    Apparently, sorry, little fuzzy on the details... But part of what was going on at the embassy involved decommissioning old weapons, but that other groups could have whatever weapons for various reasons.

    I don't know, but that's what I read, maybe by the same whistleblower...

    Is it still outside the realm of possibility that there were that many weapons with intent to distribute them to Alquaida?

    It's been in the news more and more the past few months, that the groups we are supporting that are fighting against the Syrians, at least contain a group that are allied with Alquaida.

    How obvious does it have to get?

    Decommissioning weapons in not the job of the State Department. It's takes expertise like the military for that.

    I don't know, but maybe it was as a stopover place on the way to be destroyed or something like that...

    I didn't think that to be the case, but I saw somethin like that explanation in a fox or CNN article, but even that article only could account for like 30-40 of the weapons at any given time.

    Yeah, I'll bet. That's not how the military would be doing it. If these were live weapons all assembled, they wouldn't be anywhere near an embassy. They'd be in a secure location with armed guards.
