The UK Daily Mail reported on the claim by Joe diGenova, an attorney for Benghazi whistleblowers that four hundred American-made surface-to-air (SAM) missiles were stolen from Libya during the attack ended up in the hands of al-Qaeda.
According to diGenova, 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.diGenova said: "They are worried, specifically according to these sources, about an attempt to shoot down an airliner."
‘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.’
DiGenova said his sources are ‘former intelligence officials who stay in constant contact with people in the Special Ops and intelligence community.’
‘And it’s pretty clear that the biggest concern right now are 400 missiles which have been diverted in Libya and have gotten in the hands of some very ugly people.’
diGenova said that while he was uncertain whether the stolen weapons were being kept at the U.S. Consulate’s CIA annex, ‘it is clear that the annex was somehow involved in the process of the distribution of those missiles.’
‘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.’
CNS News adds diGenova’s assertion that “we had troops ready to deploy in Croatia to go that night of September 11, 2012 to rescue Americans.”
It is a sad state of affairs when we have to get the truth from a foreign media source but that's just how it goes these days, the main stream news media has turned into a government controlled entity.
