The Real Motive For The Obama Administration’s Recent Arrest. Qatar, Benghazi and the connection to Ahmed Abu Khattala
After the attack on Benghazi and the connection to supplying arms to Libyan rebels by the Admin, many started putting the pieces together as to why Ambassador Stevens was there in the first place. A review by a retired CIA friend pointed out that there is always more to the story and said, “Thanks for sharing this. Actually, they are not presenting all of the facts on the gang of 8. There is a class that some in the clandestine service at CIA have to take if they work with any type of lawmakers and its called ‘sharing secrets with lawmakers’ sounds corny but that’s what its really called. And you are taught how to wiggle your way around “legally” to make things like this happen and how to make them ‘legal’. its the nasty side of covert action that came into existence when lawyers got involved. The way they do it is the minimum that a covert operation and action has to be authorized is 4 votes and signatures from the gang of 8. So not all 8 have to be present during meetings. The 4 ruling was created in the event of an emergency that 4 could get the actions executed.
The end result has been a political tool for all presidents and bush was very successful at it and we used the gang of 4 ruling for extraordinary rendition and CIA’s RDI program all the time. It was so successful, Nancy Pelosi constantly cried that she was not in the know and that CIA had been doing things behind her back. It even garnered national press back in the day when it was occurring so frequently for the renditions of high value targets and detainees. Later, we presented 40 posterboard sized documents of her signature which was automatically done up if the gang of 8 signed off on an action. She was furious but legally there was nothing she could do. We did it and got away with it for 8 years under bush and it looks like they are doing the same thing under Obama. Which is not surprising!”
