Response to leveymg (Reply #34)

75. Thank you, thank you, thank you, leveymg for all the contemporaneous research you did on Benghazi

I don't think I'm alone in having missed these critical backgrounders at the time, so I'm particularly grateful that you redirected us to them now. They really are essential to understanding what the hell was going on and how the state department was involved.

Although it's probably not relevant to the election campaign going on at the same time, I'm curious about the role played by Romney middle east advisor and FOX News contributor, Walid Phares. He's mentioned in one of the pieces you posted at dKos, along with now-former congresswoman Myrick ( R. NC) and Jamie Smith, a former director of Blackwater and then-current head of what sounds like a Blackwater shell company.

The reference to Phares grabbed my attention because on the night of the Benghazi attack, a seemingly well-briefed, and curiously disheveled Romney raced to the nearest camera to accuse Obama (and tangentially Hillary's State Department) of mishandling the attacks there and in Egypt.

I'm wondering if there was supposed to have been at least an element of intended October Surprise in the odd happenings around September 11, 2012 ... starting with the "movie" whose only purpose seems to have been to set off anti-American riots.
