  1. As an American, I can say that it is the belief of many that Obama purposely had our Ambassador murdered. Probably over gun-smuggling, who knows. We live in a world on the brink of collapse. Everyone is fighting everyone and no one has any money. Go figure.

    • Hi Barbara, there are often theories that deaths or disasters are results of cunning conspiracies, while they are often rather results of incompetence. There is the theory that George W Bush carefully planned the 9/11 terrorism, in order to be able to impose the Patriot Act and start the Afghan and Iraq wars. Not true; 9/11 was the Bush’s administration’s imcompetence. Of course, AFTER 9/11 they DID abuse the sense of horror in society to impose the Patriot Act and start the Afghan and Iraq wars; but that’s something else. Part of the Bush administration’s incompetence were the close links of the Bush dynasty to the Saudi establishment, including the Bin Laden family. See the film Fahrenheit 9/11.

      Likewise, the Obama administration and other NATO country governments allied themselves with al=-Qaedaish outfits in Libya. Like they are still doing in Syria. Incompetence and stupidity, but not a conspiracy with at its purpose to murder the ambasador in Benghazi. The Benghazi consulate was guarded by an incompetent British mercenaries’ corporation. A consequence of the “privatisation” ideology of the “Chicago boys” economists in the USA, of Margaret Thatcher, etc.
