- Are We In The Middle East To Help Al-Qaeda?
On September 16th, A Heritage Foundation event sponsored by Accuracy in Media gave Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) and others a forum to heighten attention for their call for a Congressional select committee to investigate the 9/11/12 events in Benghazi, Libya.
As reported by the Washington Post, Cliff Kincaid, a leader of Accuracy in Media, suggested that the regime is covering up events regarding Benghazi because the CIA operation there was secretly arming the enemy. “This administration has a policy of supporting al-Qaeda, the same people behind the deaths of nearly 3,000 Americans on 9/11,” he declared.
Former CIA officer Clare Lopez asked, “Have we flipped our policy, to where we are placing the power, the influence, the might, diplomatic assets, military assets, intelligence assets, financial assets, at the service of al-Qaeda in the Middle East to bring to power forces of Islamic jihad? … Are we involved in the Middle East to help the forces of Islam, of al-Qaeda, of the Muslim Brotherhood, of jihad and sharia?”
“I think Clare makes a very good point,” said Wolf.
