    400 US surface-to-air missiles were 'STOLEN' from Libya during the Benghazi attack

    A former U.S. Attorney who represents whistle-blowers with knowledge of what happened when armed militants attacked the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya last year says 400 surface-to-air missiles were 'taken from Libya' during the attack, and that the U.S. intelligence community is terrified they might be used to shoot down airliners.

    Joe diGenova, whose wife Victoria Toensing – a former deputy assistant attorney general – also represents Benghazi witnesses and others with knowledge of the terror attack, told WMAL radio that the loss of those missiles is also one the reason the U.S. State Department shut down 19 embassies across the Middle East last week. 'A lot of people have come forward to share information with us,' he said during the radio station's 'Mornings On The Mall' program Monday morning.

    'We have learned that one of the reasons the administration is so deeply concerned' is that 'there were 400 surface-to-air missiles stolen, and that they are ... in the hands of many people, and that the biggest fear in the U.S. intelligence community is that one of these missiles will be used to shoot down an airliner. 400 missiles, surface-to-air missiles, taken from Libya.'

    Asked if the missiles are now 'in the hands of al-Qaeda operatives,' DiGenova replied, 'That is what these people are telling us.'

    More and more information keeps rolling out of this so-called non-scandal, eh?

    The CIA was all over the place that night, and they won't tell anyone what they were doing. Until that's answered, I see no reason to assume it wasn't they who staged the whole thing.

    That would make sense. I mean, hell, if you're going to send rifles to the Mexican Cartels then why not send Stingers to the jihadi's.

    Then, when planes get shot down by these stinger missiles everyone will forget that they are courtesy of the US.

    So that's why rescue flights and jet fighters were ordered to stand down?

    The conspiracy theory, from the start, was that the people killed were the ones that did not want to play ball with Alquaida, and they put up more of a fight than anticipated so the stand down became obvious...but that was just a conspiracy theory, so that still doesn't count.

    So the theory is they killed an American servant who knew about conditions in Libya more than most and sold 400 missiles on the black market in a 2 (or more?) birds one stone type of plan?

    It isn't another source but the same source in a different paper. Google 400 SAMs stolen and it is an almost verbatim re-quote for them all.

    400 shoulder fired missiles- no report ever saying they are Stingers- is a lot to haul around and no one notice.

    But it is odd that instead of grounding civilian flights the reaction is to close Embassies- which still are flying aircraft in and out of the countries with closed Embassies.

    Not making a lot of sense....

    coming from an Attorney certainly doesn't mean it's the truth.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.
