WORLD: London angry as details about knife attackers emerge
More whistleblowers will emerge shortly in the escalating Benghazi scandal, according to two former U.S. diplomats who spoke with PJ Media Monday afternoon.
These whistleblowers, colleagues of the former diplomats, are currently securing legal counsel because they work in areas not fully protected by the Whistleblower law.
According to the diplomats, what these whistleblowers will say will be at least as explosive as what we have already learned about the scandal, including details about what really transpired in Benghazi that are potentially devastating to both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
The former diplomats inform PJM the new revelations concentrate in two areas — what Ambassador Chris Stevens was actually doing in Benghazi and the pressure put on General Carter Ham, then in command of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) and therefore responsible for Libya, not to act to protect jeopardized U.S. personnel.
Stevens’ mission in Benghazi, they will say, was to buy back Stinger missiles from al-Qaeda groups issued to them by the State Department, not by the CIA. Such a mission would usually be a CIA effort, but the intelligence agency had opposed the idea because of the high risk involved in arming “insurgents” with powerful weapons that endanger civilian aircraft.
Hillary Clinton still wanted to proceed because, in part, as one of the diplomats said, she wanted “to overthrow Gaddafi on the cheap.”
This left Stevens in the position of having to clean up the scandalous enterprise when it became clear that the “insurgents” actually were al-Qaeda – indeed, in the view of one of the diplomats, the same group that attacked the consulate and ended up killing Stevens.
The savage jihadi who beheaded a British soldier on the street then approached a cameraman. He was still carrying the murder weapons and his hands were red with blood, and his victim was still lying in the street. He issued a dire warning. But the appeasers and apologists will keep on denying reality.
— AFDI advocates deportation hearings against non-citizens who promote jihad in our nations.
— AFDI calls for an immediate halt of immigration by Muslims into nations that do not currently have a Muslim majority population.
The horrific killing in Woolwich, where a man believed to be a soldier based at the nearby Woolwich barracks was beheaded by two machete-wielding assailants, has all the hallmarks of an al-Qaeda attack.
At the time of writing we are still awaiting confirmation from security officials about the precise nature of the incident. But having just watched some ITN footage, which shows a man with bloodied hands who is carrying a machete saying directly into the camera “We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you”, it seems pretty clear to me what has happened.
For years al-Qaeda activists such as Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born cleric who preached global jidad from his base in Yemen until he was killed by a U.S. drone strike two years ago, have been calling on their followers to launch their own home-grown attacks.
Rather than trying to carry out sophisticated operations on the scale of the September 11 attacks, or the July 7 bombings in London in 2005, Awlaki urged his followers to take matters into their own hands and conduct basic attacks, such as launching suicide bomb attacks in British shopping centres, or attacking British military targets.
To date the intelligence and security services appear to have succeeded in disrupting these so-called homegrown plots, and a number of al-Qaeda terrorists have recently received lengthy jail terms. In one of these plots an al-Qaeda terrorist wanted to kidnap a British soldier in the Midlands and film himself beheading his captive.
Now it seems al-Qaeda has finally achieved its goal.
November 11, 2012 in Middle East
Michael Alexander (planet.infowars.com) 11/11/12
The attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi Libya has unearthed gross corruption of power and contempt for American personnel. The major media outlets have blasted key players for their negligence but primarily focused on the fact that government ministers immediately blamed the attack on the “Innocence of Muslims” video though intelligence already knew it was an organized terrorist assault. So the corporate media denounced the fact that government misled or lied to the people. However the more important reason as to why there is concealment must be pressed.
Ambassador Chris Stevens pleaded with the State Department to ramp up security weeks leading up to the event. He was denied. US consular staff reported Libyan police suspiciously photographing the consulate prior to the attack and requested special security for the ambassadors visit but requests were not granted. All signs of an imminent threat were present. Even more amazingly, reports came in 3 hours before the attack that a militia was gathering arms outside the consulate. No help was sent.
There was a CIA annex one mile away with armed Navy Seals. They were told to “stand down”. Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, and at least two others ignored orders and went to the consulate and rescued personnel. When taking fire back at the annex their request for military support was denied. Woods and Doherty died.
There were multiple rapid response units available for support. Teams specifically trained for a hot situation like this. Even the British special ops were “extremely frustrated“ that they didn’t receive a call to assist. An armed drone with laser guided weapons should have been available but unarmed drones were sent just to observe. General Carter F. Ham the Combatant Commander of AFRICOM was relieved on the spot as he was going to disobey orders and help his fellow Americans.
It has been reported by WND that ambassador Chris Stevens was overseeing the recruitment of jihadists to fight in Syria, and CIA covert weapons shipments to Syria have been cited by the New York Times. Now an explosive interview with Joel Skousen of World Affairs Brief sheds more light on the event. Evidently arming Al Qaeda in Syria didn’t sit well with the ambassador. Though he had overseen shipments previously, he balked on new shipments of surface to air missiles heading to jihadists in Syria. Though getting the missiles to Syria would still be possible without the ambassadors help, Chris Stevens’ new found conscience could threaten establishment power.
Therefore a hit was called in to rouge mujahideen CIA assets commonly known as Al Qaeda. The hit was made, the Innocence of Muslims video provided good cover for motive though immediately failing, and military personnel were ordered to stand down to preserve the objective assassination of the ambassador.
Most recently CIA Director David Patraeus resigned a week before he was to give testimony on the Benghazi attack in front of Congress. Whatever the case, the ambassador proved to be in to deep.
In this shocking but great interview Joel Skousen makes sense for intellectual patriots the extensive articles, information, and disinformation reported on the Benghazi attack. Though the veil of the shadow government keeps the whole truth impossible to know one fact is certain. Within conspiratorial power circles that have captured senior positions of power in United States government, you do not go against the agenda. Operating similar to syndicate mafia, once you go against the family you are eliminated.
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan trashes Jews in a Detroit Church, Democrat leaders in audience seen nodding in agreement
Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) and Detroit City Councilwoman JoAnn Watson were in the audience when screwy Louie Farrakhan was delivering blatantly anti-Semitic statements, using terms such as “Satanic Jews” and the “Synagogue of Satan,” during a speech.
The Blaze According to the ADL and the Detroit Free Press, those present at the May 17th Fellowship Chapel event included the church’s leader, Rev. Wendell Anthony, who also serves as President of the Detroit branch of the NAACP, Rep. John Conyers (D-Michigan) and Detroit City Councilwoman JoAnn Watson. According to the Detroit Free Press, “Conyers and Watson nodded in agreement during Farrakhan’s remarks.”
Typical of most Farrakhan speeches,
Farrakhan referred to “Satanic Jews” and the “Synagogue of Satan” controlling America’s government and other sectors, reportedly stating that President Barack Obama “surrounded himself with Satan…members of the Jewish community.”
Farrakhan also said that the Jewish people “have mastered the civilization now, but they’ve mastered it in evil… Who’s the owner of Hollywood that creates images and makes the people think that what is created on the screen is the way we should live? That’s Satan…Satan has devoured much of humanity.”
“The people that own Hollywood,” Farrakhan added, are “the same people that control your press, the same people that control your media, the same people who are the publishers the same people who are the distributors, the same Synagogue of Satan, and they put you before the world in this disgraceful matter.”

Every five minutes, somewhere in the Muslim world, a Christian is being killed just for being a Christian
In ‘Crucified Again,’ Raymond Ibrahim, an Arabic-speaking Coptic Christian, says that in the aftermath of the Arab Spring, the world is facing a serious human rights crisis emanating from the new Islamic war against Christians – perpetual acts of violence and murder being committed by Muslims against those belonging to the Christian faith. It is feared that in a few decades, there will no longer be any Christians left in the Middle East, birthplace of Christ.
Crucified Again exposes the rapes, the beatings, the burnings, the bombings, the acid attacks, the honour killings, the lootings, the churches destroyed, the homes razed, the villages decimated, and countless lives lost. But what is so important about this book is the fact that most of this you will never hear about from the mainstream media in the West.
Islam’s openly declared war against the West and Christianity and the stories of individual persecution and terror are routinely ignored by the MSM. But ignorance of Arabic is no excuse here. There are almost as many atrocities committed in the West by Muslims as in Muslim lands.
Most of the book deals with the mind-numbing violence and slaughter of Christians in Muslim-majority countries. Sub-Saharan Africa is certainly a major site of jihad on churches, and Nigeria is especially a tragic place. In September 2011 for example, Muslims hacked to death thousands of Christians, including many children and pregnant women. A 79-year-old Christian woman had her throat slit in her home.
In April 2012, Muslim attackers set upon a church service, throwing explosives and opening fire as worshippers attempted to flee. In December of that year four more churches were torched and ten Christians murdered. Twenty houses were burned and other churches assaulted, all to the cries of “Allahu Akbar!”

Now this from Lital Shemesh, [...]BBC:
One witness, identified only as James, said two men had attacked another man, aged about 20, who was wearing a T-shirt of military charity Help for Heroes.
“These two guys were crazed. They were just animals. They dragged him from the pavement and dumped his body in the middle of the road and left his body there,” he told LBC radio.
He said after the “horrendous” attack, the two men, who were also in their 20s, stood around, waving knives and a gun, and asked people to take pictures of them “as if they wanted to be on TV or something”.
“They were oblivious to anything, they were more worried about having their photo taken, running up and down the road,” he said.
‘Shootings’ and ‘machete attack’ in south east London: latest Telegraph,May 22, 2013

17.46 Elliston House, a 21-storey block of flats near the scene, is being evacuated to allow police to perform a controlled explosion on a blue car parked in front of it.
17.43 The attackers shouted “Allahu Akbar” (the Arabic expression meaning “God is Great”), according to Whitehall sources – BBC News.
17.41 An Army Cadet force that meets at the Woolwich barracks messages its members telling them not to arrive at the barracks in uniform.
A message posted on their community organisation public Facebook page at around 5pm says: “In light of current events outside the Artillery Barracks in Woolwich I am advising all cadets and staff to travel to the unit tomorrow night in full civilian clothes. Time will be given for cadets and staff to get changed into uniform when you arrive.”
17.38 Prime Minister David Cameron describes the killing as “truly shocking”, the Press Association reports.
17.35 The killing was likely to be a politcally motivated Islamist terror attack, sources tell Sky News.
17.31 <noframe>Twitter: Nigel Fletcher – Very alarming reports of what has taken place here in Woolwich. My thoughts are with those affected by this very serious incident.</noframe>
17.28 Theresa May, the Home Secretary, has summoned a Cobra meeting, the BBC reports. The meetings are held when the Government is dealing with an emergency.
17.23 The Ministry of Defence says it is urgently looking at the reports that the incident involved a soldier. The incident occurred some 200 yards from the Royal Artillery Barracks, adjacent to Woolwich Common, the historical home of the Royal Artillery.
The barracks, also known as the Woolwich station, now houses a number of the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery and independent companies of the Grenadier and Coldstream Guards.
17.14 The witness who spoke to LBC, called James, says there were “brave women” present who were shielding the victim at the scene.
He tells the radio station: “We saw clearly two knives, meat cleavers. They were big kitchen knives like you would use in a butcher’s. They were hacking at this poor guy. We thought they were trying to remove organs from him.
“These two guys were crazed, they were not there, they were just animals. They then dragged him from the pavement and dumped his body in the middle of the road.
“They took 20 minutes to arrive, the police – the armed response.
“There was only a few people at first, then traffic began to build up because people were getting out of their cars to shout at them. They were taking no notice, they were standing there, I think they were proud of what they were doing.
“When they dumped the body in the road, these two black guys had the opportunity to hurt other people if they wanted to because there were brave women with the dead guy on the floor. They were shielding and covering him. The attackers with the knives were standing over these women.”
17.08 Julia Wilders, one of the witnesses, adds: “There were two black guys that looked like they were trying to resuscitate a white guy on the floor.
“I thought there’d been an accident but then I saw they were using meat cleavers to hack him up.
“We live just behind where it happened and once we got back we walked back to have a look and that’s when I saw one of the black guys pull out a handgun.
“My husband screamed at me to get back. I was petrified.
“As I was running back I saw the police pull up and the black guy was running towards the police car and they shot him.”
17.04 Another witness, Shane Webb, 48, an electrician who lives in a tower block overlooking the scene, says he looked out of the window of his flat after hearing a loud bang.
He says: “There was a white man lying in the middle of the street. He was definitely dead. He was wearing a bomber jacket.
“As I was watching a police car pulled up and two cops got out. They both just raised their guns and fired. There were about five or six shots very fast and one of the black guys just went down. I don’t know if he was dead or not, but he just collapsed, just went down.
“They were firing at both of them and I think the other was hit as well, but I couldn’t see that very well.”
17.02 The Independent Police Complaints Commission, which is called in when ever firearms officers shot people, says it is investigating.
16.58 Julia Wilders, 51, who lives nearby, says: “My husband saw what he thought were two men trying to resuciate another man so we went to see if we could help.
“Then we saw a black guy with a gun. We went up to the school and told them and they closed it down.
“I went back to the scene and saw the two men. One had two machetes and the other had a machete and a gun.
“The man with two machetes ran at the police when they arrived and the police shot him. I saw him fall.
“The other one looked like he was goiing to go for his gun. so they shot him too.
