Right Hones Killer Meme Pointed at White House 

Ever since the terrorist attack of September 11, 2012, that killed four Americans at the Benghazi consulate in Libya, Republicans have searched for any way to turn the Libyan event into an equivalent political calamity for the incumbent Democratic President. 

"I've actually always suspected that, although I have no evidence, that maybe we were facilitating arms leaving Libya going through Turkey into Syria," Kentucky's Republican Senator Ron Paul told CNN on May 9, the same day he said he was "considering" a run for the Presidency in 2016.   Continuing without evidence, Paul said: 

"I never have quite understood the cover-up -- if it was intentional or incompetence -- but something went on. I mean, they had talking points that they were trying to make it out to be a movie when everybody seemed to be on the ground telling them it had nothing to do with a movie. I don't know if this was for political reasons".  Were they trying to obscure that there was an arms operation going on at the CIA annex?"

"has publically announced a significant part of what the Obama administration is trying to cover up in Benghazi-gate: The magnitude of gunrunning and fighter recruitment -- even involving jihadist organizations -- to oppose Syrian government forces through the U.S. facility in Benghazi, Libya." 

The gun-running in Libya scenario was floated early in the fall of 2012, by Rand Paul, among others, but in more speculative form.   At The Patriot's Trumpet, a 20-year CIA employee, Clare Lopez, posed a number of provocative questions in October.  Without offering supporting evidence, in a conversation with Glen Beck she asked whether the attack in Benghazi was part of:

""a much-larger gunrunning operation to al Qaida-linked and other Jihadist groups in Libya and, more ominously, Syria?

"Is the Obama Administration running guns into other Jihadist hot spots?

""  Was Ambassador Stevens our operational officer in a gunrunning operation to al Qaida linked groups that had "gone wrong?
