NSA Mega Data Collection Fails to Connect the Dots of a Failed USA Policy
Benghazi was not a Hillary Cllinton failure, it was a Bush-Obama systemic, policy failure similar to the Carter-Reagan policy failure of creating “freedom fighter” monsters, who turned against their master.
In addition, the primary justification for the massive NSA effort to record everything to prevent another 9/11 failed to pick up communications and prevent the most successful attack against US property since 9/11, the horrific fiasco at Benghazi.
As Robert Sheer, so astutely describes in his truthdig article, “NSA, Benghazi and the Monsters of Our Own Creation,”
“In short, the only evidence turned up by the vast spying apparatus was evidence that inconveniently contradicted the al-Qaida connection, so it was not made public.
“As The New York Times stated, the Benghazi incident has been billed as “the most significant attack on United States property in 11 years, since Sept. 11, 2001,” an event that launched the much-ballyhooed war on terror.
“But as with that attack 11 years earlier, the perps turned out to be people the U.S. secret agencies had once trusted. The enemy here was not al-Qaida, but rather a homegrown menace empowered by foreign intervention.
“The attack was led,” the Times reported, “by fighters who had benefited directly from NATO’s extensive air power and logistic support during the uprising against Colonel Qaddafi.”
