On today/s broadcast we had a special guest, Ken Timmerman. He has a new book “Dark Forces; The Truth About What Happened In Benghazi.” Ken is an investigative reporter. He was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006 for the work he has done to expose Iran’s nuclear weapons program. It was a joint nomination with former UN ambassador John Bolton. His reporting showed that Iran shared some of the responsibility for the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Ken writes for magazines like New Max, Time Magazine, The American Spectator, etc. He lectures at the US Army War College, the Defense Intelligence Agency, and the Pentagon’s Joint Counter Intelligence Training Academy, etc.
Having spent 30 years as an investigative reporter in the Middle East Ken understood that we were attacked at Benghazi because we were weak. This is what happens in the Middle East, when you are weak you get attacked. When you are strong people respect you. Ken has seen this in Lebanon again and again.
Over the years Ken had developed a network of sources. Turing the attack at Benghazi he contacted one of his sources and he alerted him to the Iranian government in the area at the start of the anti-Gaddafi uprising in February 2011.
Ken used this source’s information. He went to contacts in the special operations community, people he had known for years, former CIA officers he had gotten to know over the years, etc.
In the case showing Iran’s connection to 9/11 he brought in testimony from defectors from Iranian intelligence organizations. He had spent what he described as “man years” debriefing these sources.
He was able to uncover that Benghazi was a state sponsored terrorist attack laid out by the Islamic Republic of Iran’s overseas expeditionary arm. They were spreading money in Benghazi like butter on toast, hired local militias. Even though the US government knows very well what happened, it will not talk about this in public.
Did you get that? The Benghazi attack was a state sponsored terrorist attack and the stat that sponsored it was Iran. I was really surprised when I heard this. I had not heard anything like this from any of my sources.
At the start of the anti-Gaddafi uprising in February 2011 Iran’s overseas expeditionary arm, who are professional terrorists, set up shop. The people knew who they were. As Persian speakers they stood out from the general population. They brought in people form Hezbollah who spoke Arabic. They used them for cover and to do the outreach and recruiting of jihadis and militiamen.
The Iranians were there from the beginning. They had their equivalent of our CIA annex. They were running things from their own intelligence complex. At the peak they had about 70 intelligence officers in Benghazi. At the time of the attack they were down to about 50 but they had brought in a two star general, who Ken names in his book. He is one of the senior leaders of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. This general had the authority to make command decisions, he did not have to refer back to his leadership in Iran.
This team conducted the surveillance, did the planning of the attack, handled all of the logistics, etc. They had penetrated the communications structure of the annex and State Department at the mission compound. They had learned the evacuation plans for the Benghazi complex. This explains why they were able to send their people directly to the safe haven where Ambassador Stevens was.
As you can see, this was anything but spontaneous. The Iranian government had been planing it for a long time.
There is another book “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi” which agrees with what Ken has written in his book. This gives us two independent witnesses to these things.
Before I close today I want to say a few words about the beheading in Moore OK. This is another occasion where a Muslim carries out the orders of Muhammad to kill and destroy, to strike at their necks, those who are non-Muslims.
The man who did this, Alton Nolen, converted to Islam while in prison. This should not surprise us because Muslims have targeted our prison as recruiting stations. One of the requirements to prove that they have truly converted is to evangelise non-Muslims. Reports tells us that Nolen had been trying to convert people where he worked.
He was fired from his job and we don’t yet know why. It is possible that the reason for the killing was that he was enraged for being fired.
The woman that he killed was an older woman, powerless to protect herself. He attempted to kill a second person and was shot by a man who worked there who was also a reserve deputy sheriff before he could kill her.
We will follow up on this story as it develops.
