BENGHAZI BOMBSHELL: Hillary Clinton knew U.S. was running weapons from Libya to Syria in 2011
According to a new report, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew that the U.S. was running weapons from Libya to Syria in 2011. This was one year before the 2012 Benghazi terror attack that left U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, and CIA contractors, Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty dead.
Testifying before Congress in 2013 about the Benghazi attack, Hillary Clinton denied any knowledge of the U.S. gun running program.
U.S. Sen. Rand Paul: My question is, is the US involved in any procuring of weapons, transfer of weapons, buying, selling anyhow transferring weapons to Turkey out of Libya?
Clinton: To Turkey? I’ll have to take that question for the record. That’s, nobody’s ever raised that with me.
Paul: It’s been in news reports that ships have been leaving from Libya and that they may have weapons. And what I’d like to know is, that annex that was close by, were they involved with procuring, buying, selling, obtaining weapons and were any of these weapons being transferred to other countries? Any countries, Turkey included?
Clinton: Well, Senator you’ll have to direct that question to the agency that ran the annex. And, I will see what information was available.
Paul: You’re saying you don’t know?
Clinton: I do not know. I don’t have any information on that.
