Retired Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer said Saturday he has sources saying President Barack Obama was in the room at the White House watching the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya unfold.



Two unarmed U.S. drones were dispatched to the consulate and recorded the final hours of the attack, which killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

“This was in the middle of the business day in Washington, so everybody at the White House, CIA, Pentagon, everybody was watching this go down,” Shaffer said on Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine.” “According to my sources, yes, [Obama] was one of those in the White House Situation Room in real-time watching this.”

Shaffer served as a senior operations officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency in Afghanistan in 2003 and wrote a book critical of the policies there. The U.S. government purchased the entire print run for $47,000 in an attempt at censorship just before its 2010 publication, claiming it contained classified material.

Shaffer said the question now is what precisely Obama did or didn’t do in the moments he saw the attack unfolding. The CIA reportedly made three urgent requests for military backup that were each denied.

Former 20 year CIA veteran, Clare Lopez: “Jordan is targeted! Saudi Arabia is targeted!”


■Could the Obama Administration’s Fast and Furious gunrunning operation to the Mexican drug cartels be simply a dress rehearsal for a much larger gunrunning operation to al Qaeda-linked and other Jihadist groups in Libya and, more ominously, Syria?
■Is the Obama Administration running guns into other Jihadist hot spots?
■Does the United States of America have troops in Jordan?
■Was Ambassador Stevens our operational officer in a gunrunning operation to al Qaeda linked groups that had “gone wrong?”
■Did the Obama Administration set Stevens up and leave him (with former Navy Seals, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods and computer expert, Sean Smith) to die?
■Did President, Secretary Clinton, General Petraeus and others have fore-knowledge?
■Who else knows now?
■Does Governor Romney know now?

These and other questions and more were raised yesterday in a conversation between Glen Beck and former CIA agent Clair Lopez.

Beck: “Why is the media not asking these questions?” And, “What happens if we let the President off and nobody pursues this?”

Lopez: “Then we have failed in our duty—as citizens, as journalists. This has to be brought up this has to be made known to the public that this is going on and that our Administration not only was working with the bad guys—was working with al Qaeda linked militias and Jihadis to overthrow Assad in Syria. But that they let out mission go down, they let our Ambassador and others die—in real time, watching it happen and they didn’t do anything about it.”

. . . . Beck, “While this was going down—the President went to bed!”

The 13 minute interview is in two segments on You Tube. It is so full of explosive information, I strongly urge you to watch it all at least twice. Here is part I followed part II:

Alleged Leaker Muslim DHS Adviser Elibiary: “On Thursday, September 8th FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III personally handed me the Louis E. Peters Memorial Service Award for 2011”

Yesterday at Atlas I told you about how the devout Muslim DHS Advisory Board member Mohamed Elibiary was the only member of the DHS Board to be given access to sensitive intel data — which he is now accused of leaking to a Leftist media source to try to trump up another sob story about “Islamophobia.”

And now it gets even worse. Atlas reader Diane has sent me this article Elibiary published last September 18 in Muslim Matters, whining about how FBI training tells the truth about Islam and jihad (or at least it did before they started listening to the likes of this stealth jihadist). In the article, Elibiary reveals that he received an award from FBI director Mueller himself. For what? Smoothest deceptions about Islam’s violent texts?

FBI Training, the Ackerman Exposé & American Muslim Community Concerns Mohamed Elibiary, Muslim Matters, September 18, 2011

On Thursday, September 8th FBI Director Robert S. Mueller  III personally handed me the Louis E. Peters Memorial Service Award for  2011 in front of an audience of over five hundred retired Directors (ie.  Judge William Webster who was Director of not just the FBI but also the  CIA), a couple of dozen national security and law enforcement VIPs and  several hundred retired FBI officials.

The Peters Award is the highest honor awarded annually to a civilian  by the FBI whose assistance was invaluable in a major investigation.  This year signified the first time it was given to someone working in  the Homegrown Violent Extremism sphere that the American Muslim  community has been struggling with post 9/11.

It was a closed-door ceremony in a banquet hall without media, a bit  like the scene in the movie Charlie Wilson’s War where the CIA gives him  their highest civilian award for all he did to help remove the Soviets  from Afghanistan. Two of the cases, in which I played the unique role of  having one hand stretched out to the FBI and the other hand stretched  out to local Muslim community leadership across multiple cities, were  shared.

Why was no media present? Was Mueller aware of how bad it would look to give an award to a man who had addressed a pro-Khomeini conference and threatened to blow up a columnist’s car for writing things he didn’t like?

Unbelievable. The capitulation is happening so fast, it is breathtaking.

Mueller should should be fired immediately. But Obama is more likely to give him an award for giving one to Elibiary.
