Under The Radar: The US Embassy In Benghazi Was Not An Embassy – OpEd


By John Robles

The Benghazi “US Embassy” was not an embassy at all. Clinton continues to avoid testifying and Stevens was not a diplomat but a CIA agent. These are just some of the news items that are currently “Under the Radar”.

Every week hundreds of important events occur that are important to all of us but which do not get enough media attention, either because they are over-shadowed by other major news or because they do not fit the pre-planned message that many of the world’s media are trying to promote, there is a journalistic responsibility to tell the whole story which we always attempt to do. Although we keep our eyes on the world this week’s most pressing issues that have been suppressed come from the US.

1. Global/Military

How is the US Army going to carry out more wars of aggression? This week the US Army quietly unveiled its new strategic guidelines. Global NATO, global US Army.

“… the Army is now “more CONUS-based,” Soldiers will deploy worldwide in support of theater commanders and their regional alignment strategies.” US Army official site

2. Global/Financial

In order to control the world it is necessary to control the world’s money. Here is yet another tool for global domination by the US

“A ‘Google bank’ or ‘Apple bank’ that’ll certainly emerge will swallow the greatest part of the traditional banking market.”


3. US/Israel/Iran

With complete disregard to what will happen if, for example, a reactor melts down, the US and Israel continue aggressive cyber attacks on Iran.

“Iran reported a spree of new cyberattacks Tuesday, saying foreign enemy hackers tried in recent months to disrupt computer systems at a power plant…” The Globe and Mail

4. US/Internal

After the events of 9-11 it was said that at 9,000 people were secretly detained without trial, redress, or any way to defend themselves, with many being held completely incommunicado with the outside world. The practice has continued and been expanded yet the numbers are impossible to ascertain.

“Seattle residents Matt Duran and Katherine Olejnik have been imprisoned in the SeaTac Federal Detention Center for weeks. Neither of them has been indicted, arraigned, or even arrested for a crime.”

5. US/Internal/Endless Terror

If the US Government does not like you or what you do, be you a journalist, blogger, protestor, hacktivist, freedom advocate, peace activist, independent entity/country, or any one or thing that does not “tow-the-line”, they label you a terrorist and proceed to destroy you any way they can.

6. Bahrain/Brutality

Some in the US are waking up to the fact that their government is supporting dictatorial regimes which brutally suppress democracy in order to advance US interests. Bahrain has been one of the worst example since the Arab Spring.

“… Aqeel Abdul Mohsen, 19, was shot in the face for protesting against Bahrain’s government. He was covered in blood, with the lower side of his face blown open, his jaw shattered, and a broken hand hanging awkwardly from his wrist…”

 7. US/Assassinations/Secrecy

Extra-judicial assassinations, 9-11, the Kennedy Assassination, FBI tracking guidelines, illegal detention, and even the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas, are all things the US Government do not want you to know about, and for good reason: to protect themselves from answering crimes against all of us. The ALL GOV site has published 11 documents you must not see.

“After he took over the presidency, Barack Obama did away with traditional legal niceties and decided to just kill Americans who would previously have been accused of treason or terrorism. His victims have included three American citizens killed in Yemen in 2011, U.S.-born anti-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, Samir Khan, an al-Qaeda propagandist from North Carolina, and Awlaki’s 16-year-old son, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki.”


8. The US National Security Agency (NSA)

The NSA is the most secret of the secret US “security” agencies, yet sometimes what they are actually doing becomes known to the public. The fact that the NSA is using the rubric of “security” to attack the operating systems of domestic power plants and utilities should be cause for alarm.

“The 190 pages of the NSA’s Perfect Citizen files, which EPIC obtained through the Freedom of Information Act last week, are heavily redacted. At least 98 pages were completely deleted for a number of reasons, including that portions are “classified top secret,” and could “cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security”.


9. Libya/Benghazi/Clinton/Stevens was CIA

The Benghazi “US Embassy” was not an embassy at all, Clinton continues to avoid testifying and Stevens was not a diplomat at all but a CIA agent.

“In reality, Islamic terrorist factions that work with the US were employed by the Saudi Arabian government to take out one of Petraeus’ CIA spies. That spy’s name was J. Christopher Stevens.”

10. Mass Media Blackout

The site Blacklisted News has compiled a list of 25 facts the mainstream mass media does not want you to know about, including massive global volcanic activity, the US Federal Reserve creating the current economic crisis, a financial disaster is being predicted for 2013 and that Saudi Arabia still kills people if they change their religion.

“#15 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that hunger and poverty are absolutely exploding in the United States at the same time that they are telling us that the economy is ‘recovering’.”

11. Syria/Russia/Air Defenses

Although the Guardian article is definitely biased towards the West the information that Russian Air-Defense Systems may be the only thing keeping Syria from being the victim of another aggressive US invasion, is not something the West really wants you to know.

“Over the weekend, the head of Russia’s ground forces air defence, Major General Alexander Leonov, told the Ekho Moskvy radio station: “Syria’s air-defense system is a no-nonsense force. As a result, no one has ever used serious air combat power against it.”

“That “no-nonsense” force, the air defense command, comprises two divisions and an estimated 50,000 troops – twice the size of Muammar Gaddafi’s force – with thousands of anti-aircraft guns and more than 130 anti-aircraft missile batteries.”


 12. Africa

The US is further expanding its military presence into 35 African nations, under the tried and true pretext of the never-ending global “War on Terror!”

“A US Army brigade will begin sending small teams into as many as 35 African nations early next year, part of an intensifying Pentagon effort to train countries to battle extremists and give the US a ready and trained force to dispatch to Africa if crises requiring the US military emerge.”
