Obama Turned Benghazi into Al Qaeda Terrorist Hub

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

Obama justified his Libyan War to the American people by claiming that people of Benghazi were in danger from Gaddafi. After he succeeded in overthrowing Gaddafi, Benghazi reverted to its radical roots and became a city run by terrorist militias leading to the murder of four Americans.

And now a fifth American.

That shouldn’t be surprising because Benghazi had become a stop on the Jihadi Express.

Every week, about a dozen Syrians arrive at Benghazi’s airport for what’s described as insurgent training. When they fly out, they’re carrying fake Libyan passports, according to three officials familiar with the comings and goings of foreigners at the airport.

The accounts of the officials, who asked to remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of the topic, are more evidence that this city in Libya has become a regional hub for Islamist extremists seeking to hone their combat skills.

It also raises questions about the role of Libya’s homegrown militia, Ansar al Shariah, in the global jihadi movement. Ansar al Shariah has its roots in the anti-Gadhafi uprising and it’s thought to have participated in the attack last year on U.S. facilities in Benghazi that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. Any effort to train al Qaida-linked fighters here is unlikely to have gone forward without the backing of Ansar al Shariah, experts in the organization say.

Airport authorities can’t stop them because they themselves fear the repercussions of confronting militants. As one employee explained, pointing to an immigration official: “He is with Ansar al Shariah.”

Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan conceded in a recent interview with The Washington Post that government investigations have turned up Tunisians, Algerians, Sudanese and Nigerians undergoing training in Benghazi.

Clearly Obama’s plan to overthrow Gaddafi and replace him with the fun-loving LIFG and other Muslim Brotherhood militias with historical ties to Al Qaeda was a good decision that is working out really well.

    This man is proof that America has no pride left. Obama is the face of America. An ugly, evil, narcissistic, weak and lifeless face whose words mean nothing. The face of America

      while the ugly, evil, narcissistic, weak and lifeless face of obamanation is what is portrayed to the world on the surface,
      REAL Americans have not changed nor believed or invested into the obscene LIES.
      REAL Americans will stand, will not be cowed nor intimidated by the evilness of obamanation.
      REAL Americans will fight if necessary, and when necessary with everything at their disposal,
      REAL Americans know they cannot be defeated until they give up, and giving up is not something they do!
      REAL Americans are those who, although not seen by the world, make up the actual beating heart of America.

        Immigration, both legal and illegal and mostly from the third, and moslem, world is quickly changing the face of America. The REAL American is a vanishing kind – an anachronism in the new UNREAL America.

          I agree, we are diminishing, but not yet the minority.

          • MukeNecca

            If, in order to avoid conflict, you cower before a small minority, how reasonable is to expect you will confront and move against it when it becomes much more numerous making the conflict much more severe and its outcome uncertain?

            Look at the UK., France, Sweden… The “natives” are still the vast majority of the population yet there is no sign of
            a notable resistance against the quickening process that eventually must remove their exclusive rights to their historical homeland.

          They are attempting to dilute us.

          when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security

          In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

          –All Words Written about/to the last tyrant our republic had to deal with–

            They are attempting to dilute us.

            They are not “attempting” – they ARE diluting you.

          • BadWhisky

            The day they declare amnesty and those folks can vote any and everywhere legally…..YES…

          • MukeNecca

            If you think the dilution begins with voting rights then the process (of dilution) has started and been going on for a few decades now with legal mass immigration of people from the third and moslem world who vote for anything that hastens the demise of the old America. They overwhelmingly voted for “president” O’Bimbo. In fact, he would have never been elected if not for the votes of these new “Americans”. They are tipping the scales now and will do so increasingly more in the future.

          • BadWhisky

            He would not have been elected had the election laws been enforced; but, I digress, if you think we the people actually elected this guy straight up you are wrong.

          • MukeNecca

            Even granting that the story is true and the fraud was spread widely enough to secure Oboma’s winning the elections it doesn’t invalidate my claim that the quickly growing segment of antiamerican population of America must, per definition, replace America with something profoundly different in not so long run. Another decade of unrestrained immigration from the third world will allow the native liberals aided by the “new Americans” to win elections without resorting to forgery.

          • BadWhisky

            I am not necessarily disagreeing here, just injecting thought into the mix…

            You said, “Another decade of unrestrained immigration from the third world will allow the native liberals aided by the “new Americans” to win elections without resorting to forgery.”

            Not at all in disagreement with this statement.

    • BadWhisky

      He isn’t the face of America, he is the face of the ruling elite and the Media.

  • ModdKenwood

    irresponsible.reckless.unaccountable.
    those 3 words sum up the Obama Administration.

    • BadWhisky

      Purposeful, willful, calculating are actually more accurate. Treasonous is a very accurate description of a president that is arming and supporting people whom we have declared war on.

    Soetorobama is the face of the Muslim Brotherhood incognito…
