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?"
