Here’s the question and it roils: who is the “source within the White House” mentioned below? Here’s the story: Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, died in an assault on our ‘consulate” in Benghazi Libya. His dead body was worth nothing to anyone in our Government, but kidnapped and alive, he could be worth a lot of ‘face’ to Barack Obama. What if…the assault was to be a kidnapping of Stevens so that he could be exchanged for the Blind Sheik in prison in North Carolina – a plan by the U.S. Government to find a way to make Muslims happy and send the Blind Sheik Omar Adbel-Rahman home. Egypt is demanding it. The White House refuses to give a staunch “no,” or even a weak ‘huh-uh’ for an answer. The Washington Examiner has the report, but fully credits The Center for Western Journalism for putting the theory on the front burner – not once but twice in October. How important is the Blind Sheik to Islamists, led by Eqypt? Important enough for Egypt’s President-Elect Morsi to publicly promise, in front of a cheering crowd, to work for his release from prison in June 2012. As you’ll see below, by September 2012, Morsi has heated up his rhetoric and turned up the fire.
Admiral Lyons, whose career in the United States (U.S.) Navy was capped by two years of service as the Commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet from 1985 to 1987, thinks this kidnapping was planned to be the first stage of an international prisoner exchange. This transfer of prisoners would have ensured the release of Omar Abdel-Rahman, the “Blind Sheik” convicted of orchestrating the World Trade Center Bombing in 1993.
Admiral James Lyons suggests the Obama administration intentionally lessened the levels of security at the consulate compound in Benghazi in the weeks leading up to the attack. This plan should have worked to reduce the possibility of resistance as the Ansar al-Sharia terrorist organization captured Chris Stevens, the American Ambassador to Libya.
According to information obtained by Fox News, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, both former U.S. Navy Seals, ignored orders to “stand down” and fought vigorously for hours in their attempt to defend the compound from the impending attack.

Take a look at the following, and note that as far as we know, the White House has not come after The Center for Western Journalism for claiming a “source within the White House states that it was arranged as an October surprise by Barack Obama:”
What is most shocking, however, is that a source within the White House states that it was arranged as an October surprise by Barack Obama. Obama, in order to make the release of the Blind Sheik more palatable to the American people, and to boost his sagging approval ratings, arranged with the Muslim Brotherhood to kidnap Ambassador Stevens. Then, days before the election, acting the part of the hero, planned to release the Blind Sheik in exchange for Ambassador Stevens.
The plan was for security to be minimal at the consulate, protected by only Libyan security guards who would melt away into the night at the appointed time.
The plan fell apart as two former SEALs, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, fought the kidnappers, leading to a firefight and subsequent fire, killing Stevens, Woods, Doherty, and also Sean Smith, a communications specialist.
Obama then had to create a cover-up so massive that it will go down in the history books until the end of time.
On January 11th, The Center for Western Journalism headlined “The Scandal That Will Bring Down Barack Obama.” To do that, Western Journalism will have to divulge the “source within the White House,” and Admiral Lyons will have to tell us whether he is quoting CWJ or has some inside information as well.
The whole story of Benghazi is so horribly sordid. I believe this story could be wholly credible. It makes sense. Nothing else does. The whole cover-up doesn’t make sense, and we know it. Congress knows it. I don’t know what Hillary Clinton knew. I suspect the White House would NOT make her a part of this scheme, but who knows. We know nothing these days because our Government operates behind closed doors, without the checks and balances of Congress.
Obama has said nothing about Egypt’s calls for the release of Omar Abdel-Rahman. His silence is deafening. Most of us understand it.
Egypt’s terror-coddling President Mohamed Morsi has repeated his arrogant demand that America free convicted 1993 World Trade Center mastermind Omar Abdel-Rahman. I’d like to report that President Obama repeated his unequivocal rejection of the Muslim Brotherhood leader’s entreaties. But as of this writing, no such public statement or restatement yet exists.
That’s right. Obama has kept mum about Morsi’s vociferous lobbying on behalf of Abdel-Rahman, the “blind sheik,” who is serving a life sentence at a maximum-security prison in North Carolina for seditious jihad conspiracy. The commander in chief’s silence speaks volumes.
Morsi started publicly haranguing the U.S. to have mercy on the ol’ blind sheik back in September. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., confirmed to the New York Post at the time that the Egyptian government had “asked for his release” and that the request was being considered by the Obama administration.
Underlings denied any talks were underway, but pressure on the White House had been building since at least last June, when the State Department granted a visa to a member of the radical Egyptian terrorist group Gamaa Islamiyya (the very group the blind sheik is alleged to lead). The Gamaa Islamiyya representative joined an entire delegation of Egyptian lawmakers who met with top State Department and White House officials. They reportedly discussed the possible release of the blind sheik with at least one Obama national security official. Read more from Michelle Malkin at The Weekly Standard
We stood by and let the Brits (by blaming it on Scotland) release the Lockerbie Bomber (Pan Am 103) Abdelbaset al-Megrahi on compassionate grounds. He supposedly had 3 months to live in 2009 but died in May 2012 at his home in Libya, without the British or U.S. insisting that he spend his last days, which turned out to be years, in a Libyan prison. Reports show good evidence that Abdelbaset al-Meghrahi was released so that British Petroleum could activate their oil drilling rigs off the coast of Libya.
These conjectures are close to unthinkable, but today, I have no problem “thinking” them. So many unanswered questions. So much Government not making sense. Navy SEALs always come to the rescue…did so this time even though ordered not to – and why would they have been ordered to “stand down?” Who is the unnamed White House source?
