Report: 400 US Surface-to-Air Missiles Went Missing in Benghazi

A lawyer representing one of the whistleblowers with knowledge of the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi last September says 400 surface-to-air missiles were "diverted to Libya" during the attack and fell into "the hands of some very ugly people."

In an interview with Washington, D.C., radio station WMAL on Monday, Beltway lawyer Joe diGenova said he "does not know whether [the missiles] were at the annex, but it is clear the annex was somehow involved in the distribution of those missiles," Breitbart.com reported.

Saying his information "comes from a former intelligence official who stayed in constant contact with people in the special ops and intelligence community," diGenova said the U.S. intelligence community is terrified the missiles might be used to shoot down airliners — and that fear, in part, fueled the closing of embassies in the Middle East last week.

    1. Stolen, I guess. Which reminds me:

      As my luck would have it, I drew guard duty on the first night of TET '69 just a year after the bad one. Only one person was on duty each night, and no one seemed concerned that something bad might happen again. I made the best of it and got all the ammo I could for my rifle plus a few VC grenades that had been captured the year before. I definitely wasn't too thrilled as night came on, but absolutely nothing happened.

      No one who ever pulled guard duty there did anything other than stay in the main office, but we had a gung ho new man who decided when he got it, that he was actually going to patrol the perimeter.

      There seemed to be a lot of inventory that was never accounted for, and we found out why that night. As he went around, he spied two men in black pajamas and shot and killed one. The next morning, Sunday, the Vietnamese supervisor showed up in a defensive, angry mood asking about the incident. (Which he obviously knew about since he was evidently involved in the grand scheme!) He just couldn't understand why the man had been killed. Nothing could be proven about him, but that was the end of the shortages!

      A few other men there were, Perez, another Puerto Rican, Dunlevy, a dedicated girl chaser, and Swindler, who supposedly got sent there after he decided he had enough of the infantry and rode a buffalo out of the field! A good story, anyway. All hopeless pot heads.
