#1 Shocking! I say again... shocking! Could they also be piloting Syrian aircraft or threatening the Turks with regard to the transit shipment of weapons from Libya? We'll likely learn more as our vitally important mission in Benghazi is rebuilt and functioning again. How is the reconstruction coming anyway....?

#2 Is it possible the Russians organized the "hit" on our ambassador? Just asking.

#4 Well John, I cannot say for certain with the open source info that has thusfar come forward. One must examine however, who has serious skin in the game, and what lengths they might go to in order to dampen western involvement and shut down the supply of arms to the Syrian rebels.

The fact that the consulate in Benghazi remains Tango-Uniform is indeed telling. If it was such a key facility to the State Department and the Intelligence Community, why has it not been rebuilt and manned? How are those vital regional intelligence gaps being filled today? Where has the media discussion with regard to assisting the Syrian rebels gotten off to? Wat say ye Blue Mountain Security Ltd? Note the lack of commentary on the topic from our Russian and Turkish friends?

Crickets, crickets everywhere !

Perhaps it has gone the way of the Pueblo?
