"Well folks, what we know from this, is that Tosh Plumlee is someone who's testified repeatedly and
been proven accurate before [ US ] Congress.  He's saying he has a high-level NATO source that said
that
the [ US ] State Department was transferring weapons directly to the al-Qaeda forces,
the Syrian rebels, and that they basically took out the Ambassador and others because they
were complaining.
And that's what  I have from other sources as well.  But this is from somebody
who's talked to the NATO person who witnessed it, and knew about it.

[ Excerpts from YouTube, emphasis added ]
   
 
Former CIA contract C-130 pilot / gun-runner William Robert "Tosh" Plumlee ( 76 ):
 
"As far as the Direct Commerical Sales [ DCS ] program, that's been an ongoing program that's monitored,
or
controlled by the [ US ] State Department. Over the years, I've seen a pattern developing here.  I was
a C130 pilot, I've flown guns, ammunition [
profanity omitted ] all over the world. ... this program [ DCS ] that is
used to ship weapons all over the world. 
In my travels, I found out that, it appears to me, in my opinion,
we start the conflict, we escalate the conflict, we supply high impact weapons to both sides of the conflict. ..." 
[ "Tosh" Plumlee quote excerpt begin 5:50 min on YouTube ]
 
"... a contact of mine in the Middle East, a high-ranking NATO official, mentioned to me that he had had a report that
the Ambassador [ i.e., US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens ] had been complaining about the dispatches and
cables that he had sent the [ US ] State Department about weapons being received and radicals armed, including
Stinger Missiles.  His question was, 'Where are they coming from?'  'What do I have to do?'  'What should I do?'
And he was ordered to stand down.  Now this is second-hand information from a very sensitive source.  Second
time that that happened, was from a very good friend of mine that had worked the Mexico beat [ gun-running ? ] ...
he was telling me, the second confirmation, that ... the Ambassador's people had written a series of field reports
and cable dispatches advising our [ US ] State Department that the rebel faction had been armed with US weapons.
... I challenge the [ US ] State Department to release those memos that the Ambassador wrote to them four weeks,
two months, before the place [ i.e., Benghazi ] was attacked. 
[ "Tosh" Plumlee quote excerpt begin 38:00 min on YouTube ]
 
 

Alex Jones, radio host:

"I have Pentagon sources, who say, well who said a week after [ i.e., a week after the Sept. 11, 2012 Benghazi attack ] 
that that's what happened - that the Ambassador ... that the Ambassador was saying  'No' to giving al-Qaeda heat-seeking
missiles.  And, that they had three warehouses full of them, and so they just ordered 'em all killed [ the US Benghazi
personnel ] using the Benghazi/al Qaeda security force that Obama had hired, and that this was just trying to wipe out
the witnesses of the weapons so that they could also then expunge the cables [ i.e., Ambassador Steven's cables complaining ].
Is that what your NATO source told you ?" 
[ Alex Jones quote excerpt begin 40:00 min on YouTube ]
 


Former CIA contract C-130 pilot / gun-runner William Robert "Tosh" Plumlee ( 76 ):
 
"That's what exactly happened.  And that is, what's known as a private, a private company, a security company that was hired.
Those weapons were US-made weapons that came from the Direct Commercial Sales program, legally transported
by C130 into Jordan, into Pakistan, into Turkey, and
dispatched out of CIA safehouses into the Syrian rebels. ..."
[ "Tosh" Plumlee quote excerpt begin 40:40 min on YouTube ]
 


Alex Jones, radio host:
 
"... my intel is, from multiple sources, they killed the Ambassador and his crew because they were saying 'No'
to giving missiles to al-Qaeda."
[ Alex Jones quote excerpt begin 42:50 min on YouTube ]

 

Former CIA contract C-130 pilot / gun-runner William Robert "Tosh" Plumlee ( 76 ):

"They were not only saying 'No' to giving missiles to al-Qaeda, that was the second deal.  We were giving high impact
weapons to the Syrian rebels.  Within that group was ... al-Qaeda members ... which pilfered those weapons and used
'em against our people.  That's what the story is.  That's, in my opinion, is what the coverup is.  The story about someone
doin' a
film that made the people go a radical and go crazy there, was a cover story to cover a top secret ongoing
operation of arms shipments to the Syrian rebels,
period, before our President, Commander-in-Chief, decided that
we needed to arm the Syrians.  I am not a conspiracy person.  This information that I got comes from multiple sources.
[ "Tosh" Plumlee quote excerpt begin 43:00 min on YouTube ]
  
"Back to Mrs. Smith [ i.e., mother of Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, killed at Benghazi diplomatic mission ]. 
Tell her what happened to her son.  Her son defended an ambassador that had uncovered tremendous arms shipments
from the United States arsenal through the Direct Commercial Sales program that was supposed to be monitored ...
someone dropped the ball someplace, and those weapons were used to kill our Ambassador."
[ "Tosh" Plumlee quote excerpt begin 44:10 min on YouTube ]

 

Alex Jones, radio host:
 
"Wow, so it wasn't just weapons gotten from Gaddafi in a coverup - it was direct arming the rebels then [ i.e. prior to
September 11, 2012 ], which Obama just signed an order to legalize two weeks ago [ i.e., September
2013 ],
wasn't legal then." 
[ Alex Jones quote excerpt begin 44:35 min on YouTube ]

[ "S.L" Note:  Washington Examiner, September 15, 2013: "UPDATED: Obama waives ban on arming terrorists to allow aid to Syrian opposition"
- " President Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S.
to provide military assistance to "vetted" opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad." ]
 


Alex Jones, radio host:

"... Tosh, from what I've been told, this has finally woken up the entire military.  That's why the Joint Chiefs went to Obama
and said, you're not gonna attack Syria - we're not backin' al-Qaeda, this is over, the military's on the edge of mutiny.
The vast majority of military in polls are against it.  All the military I talked to, knows that they were watching live feeds
[ i.e., of the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack ], or talked to friends that saw live feeds, from the Predators [ drones ]
of the six and a half hour gun battle, as they were ordered to stand down, NATO all saw it,
everybody knows it was a hit. 
So here's my question, did they pull off security, and just let 'em kill 'em, or did they order the Benghazi security, the al-Qaeda
forces, to go kill 'em, to get rid of the witnesses?  Did they let 'em die for a coverup, or were they involved in it?  ... And is
my information correct, that this has the New World Order in deep trouble, because so much of the military now understands
how expendable they are?" 
[ Alex Jones quote excerpt begin 49:15 min on YouTube ]



Former CIA contract C-130 pilot / gun-runner William Robert "Tosh" Plumlee ( 76 ):
 
"... the [ US ] State Department and other agencies refused ... they did not get back to them in time because they were
concerned how that was going to look politically.  It would be a political bombshell if it was revealed that US weapons
at that point in time were being given to factions in the Middle East, through Turkey, Jordan.  It would also expose methods
and procedures.  It would also expose our CIA safehouses that were operating in Jordan, and other places, Pakistan,
and Turkey,, and Saudi Arabia.  It would expose those operations that were involved.  It would expose our  politicians
on both sides of the aisle that was involved in corporate gain, in my personal opinion.  So that had to be blocked."
[ "Tosh" Plumlee quote excerpt begin 50:20 min on YouTube ]
 


Former CIA contract C-130 pilot / gun-runner William Robert "Tosh" Plumlee ( 76 ):
 
"... the politicians that are taking over the military-industrial complex."
[ "Tosh" Plumlee quote excerpt begin 54:20 min on YouTube ]
 


Alex Jones, radio host:
 
"... and they're using the al-Qaeda threat to take our liberties."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Offset_agreement#Foreign_military_and_direct_commercial_sales_.E2.80.93_.22no_known_offsets.22_and_FMF

[ Excerpts, emphasis added ]

For the U.S., the major world exporter of weapons by far, there are two main ways to sell weapons to a foreign country.
The first is referred to as " Direct Commercial Sale" and it is a company to government sale. The second way is referred to
as " Foreign Military Sales", that is a government to government sale.

A Direct Commercial Sale is highly supervised by U.S. Government and even by the U.S. Congress, in spite of its free market appearance.
The arms trade, because of its connection with national security, is never free from strict government supervision.

For a sale to a foreign country's Defense Department, a U.S. defense firm must be licensed. It is checked by theDefense Department and
by the State Department, and, in the case of relevant sales, even authorized or vetoed by U.S. Congress. Direct Commercial Sales are
highly regulated because of security, political, and commercial reasons.

Former President Dwight Eisenhower:
Excerpts [ Emphasis added ]:

"We now stand ten years past the midpoint of a century that has witnessed four major wars among great nations."

continued...

"Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers
of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But we can no longer risk emergency
improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create
a permanent armaments industry
of vast proportions.
Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the
defense establishment. ..."
[ continued ]

"Now this conjunction of an immense military establishment and alarge arms industry is new in
the American experience. The total influence - economic, political, even spiritual -- is felt in every city, every
State house, every office in the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development.
Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved;
so is the very structure of our society."

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought
or unsought, by
the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists
and will persist."

"We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take
nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of
the huge industrial
and military machinery
of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_Intelligence_Agency#History
History [ signed into law after WW2 by President Harry Truman in 1947 ]
 
The Central Intelligence Agency was created on 26 July 1947, when Harry S. Trumansigned the National Security Act into law.
A major impetus for the creation of the CIA was the unforeseen attack on Pearl Harbor. In addition, towards the end of World War II
the U.S. government felt the need for a group to coordinate intelligence efforts.

In the book Plain Speaking: An Oral Biography of Harry S. Truman, author Merle Miller wrote:
 
Here is what President Truman said of the CIA and its creation, “I think that it was a mistake.
And if I’d known what was going to happen, I never would have done it
…. But it got out of hand….
Now as nearly as I can make out, those fellows in
the CIA don’t just report on wars and the like,
they go out and make their own and there is nobody to keep track of what they are up to. They
spend billions of dollars on stirring up trouble
so they will have something to report on. They’ve
become … it’s become a government of all its own and all secret. They just don’t have to report

Thirty days after the Kennedy assassination [ December 22, 1963 ], former President Harry Truman, who
had brought the CIA into existence when he was president, published an op-ed in the Washington Post,
which stated in part as follows:

I think it has become necessary to take another look at the purpose and operations of our Central Intelligence Agency—CIA….
For some time I have been disturbed by the way CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational
and at times a policy-making arm of the Government. This has led to trouble and may have compounded our difficulties in several
explosive areas.

I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak and dagger operations. Some
of the complications and embarrassment I think we have experienced are in part attributable to the fact that this quiet intelligence
arm of the President has been so removed from its intended role that it is being interpreted as a symbol of sinister and mysterious
foreign intrigue — and a subject for cold war enemy propaganda….

We have grown up as a nation, respected for our free institutions and for our ability to maintain a free and open society. There is
something about the way the CIA has been functioning that is casting a shadow over our historic position and I feel that we need
to correct it.

The murder of Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi was an organized hit to cover up direct arm deals!!

A former CIA gun runner revealed that the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, was killed in the Sept. 11, 2012
attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in order to cover up the U.S. State Department's direct arm shipments to al-Qaeda.

William Robert "Tosh" Plumlee started his career as a CIA contract pilot in the late 1950s, delivering guns and ammunition
on behalf of the agency to Fidel Castro.

Plumlee confirmed that such arm deals are still common today, with the State Dept. shipping arms to al-Qaeda via the CIA.

During an interview with Alex Jones, Plumlee pointed out that Pat Smith, the mother of an information management officer
also killed during the Benghazi attack, received little information from the Obama administration about her son's murder.

"I began to wonder 'why won't they tell her anything?'" He asked. "Then a contact of mine in the Middle East, a high-ranking
NATO official, mentioned to me that he had reports that the ambassador [J. Christopher Stevens] had been complaining about
the dispatches and cables that he had got from the State Department about the weapons being received and [Islamic] radicals armed,
including Stinger missiles."

According to Plumlee, Steven was ordered to stand down after he asked the State Dept. what he should do about the American
arm shipments to al-Qaeda.

"The ambassador and his people had written a series of field reports and cable dispatches advising our State Department that
the rebel factions had been armed with U.S. weapons," he said. "Now my contention is this: if that is the case, why is that classified
as a national security matter?"

Plumlee mentioned that Steven's field notes have not been released by the State Dept.

These revelations suggest that after Stevens told the State Dept. that he did not want al-Qaeda receiving heat seeking missiles,
he was killed in the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi which was designed to take out witnesses to the arms transfer
and to suppress Stevens's reports.

The Obama administration then blamed the attack entirely on Islamic protestors enraged by the film ["]Innocence["] of Muslims
while refusing to answer why U.S. special forces were ordered not to aid Stevens and others during the assault.

The missiles in question, as well as the other weapons given to al-Qaeda, were transported to Libya by C-130s under the
Direct Commercial Sales (DCS) program, which operates within the State Dept.

As explained by New York Times best-selling author and former journalist Jim Marrs, the DCS program oversees the shipment
of U.S. weapons and training to countries around the world.

Through its own internal investigations, the State Dept. admitted that firearms supplied by the DCS have ended up in the hands
of foreign enemies.

Tying it all together, Plumlee stated that the weapons given to al-Qaeda were "U.S. made weapons that came from the DCS program,
[ legally ] transported by C-130s" into countries such as Turkey and Jordan and were "dispatched from CIA safe houses to the Syrian rebels."

As we have documented in the past, the Syrian rebels are predominantly al-Qaeda fighters who want to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad
in order to install an Islamic state in Syria.

If al-Qaeda controls Syria, other nations could easily take advantage of the ensuring chaos and Syria's reduced sovereignty by
extracting trillions of dollars in oil revenue from the country.

The Syrian rebels led by the Jabhat al-Nusra Front, the direct offshoot of al-Qaeda in Iraq, were described as the "most effective fighting force
in Syria" after filling the void left by the secular Free Syrian Army.

Suffering from severe shortages in weapons and supplies, the Free Syrian Army began losing soldiers to the better armed and equipped
al-Nusra Front.

Now it is known why the al-Nusra Front, and al-Qaeda worldwide, never seem to lack arms: they are receiving weapon shipments directly
from the State Dept.

The murder of Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi was an organized hit to cover up direct arm deals!!

A former CIA gun runner revealed that the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens,
was killed in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in order to cover up
the U.S. State Department's direct arm shipments to al-Qaeda.

William Robert "Tosh" Plumlee started his career as a CIA contract pilot in the late 1950s, delivering guns and ammunition
on behalf of the agency to Fidel Castro.

Plumlee confirmed that such arm deals are still common today, with the State Dept. shipping arms to al-Qaeda via the CIA.

During an interview with Alex Jones, Plumlee pointed out that Pat Smith, the mother of an information management officer
also killed during the Benghazi attack, received little information from the Obama administration about her son's murder.

"I began to wonder 'why won't they tell her anything?'" He asked. "Then a contact of mine in the Middle East, a high-ranking
NATO official,
mentioned to me that he had reports that the ambassador [J. Christopher Stevens] had been
complaining about the dispatches and cables that he had got from the State Department about the
weapons being received and [Islamic] radicals armed, including Stinger missiles."

According to Plumlee, Steven was ordered to stand down after he asked the State Dept. what he should do
about the American arm shipments to al-Qaeda
.

"The ambassador and his people had written a series of field reports and cable dispatches advising our
State Department that the rebel factions had been armed with U.S. weapons,"
he said. "Now my contention is this:
if that is the case, why is that classified as a national security matter?"

Plumlee mentioned that Steven's field notes have not been released by the State Dept.

    William Robert “Tosh” Plumlee, a former CIA contract pilot,
questioned if such arms dealing might be another “off-the-books”
  covert operation run by the CIA’s Special Tactical Unit akin to
               the arms-for-drugs deal in Iran-Contra.
