PRESS RELEASE


LaRouche: ‘The Preconditions for Obama’s Removal from Office Have Now Been Met’

May 22, 2015 (EIRNS)--Newly released “secret” Defense Intelligence Agency documents from 2012 prove that President Obama knew that the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, which resulted in the murders of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other American officials, was a premeditated attack by a local al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood affiliate. The DIA document, dated Sept. 12, 2012—just hours after the deadly attack—circulated widely among American national security officials, including to the White House, and showed, conclusively, that the assault on the U.S. diplomatic compound and CIA annex was known to have been an al-Qaeda operation.

As the result of the May 18 release of that DIA document and over 100 pages of Defense Department and State Department “secret” documents, the evidence is now conclusive: President Barack Obama willfully lied to the American people and to the U.S. Congress, to cover up the fact that the United States had been attacked by an al-Qaeda organization that the President had claimed was defeated, as a key feature of his Presidential re-election campaign.

After being informed of the release of the DIA documents, as the result of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by Judicial Watch, Lyndon LaRouche declared that “The preconditions for President Obama’s removal from office have now been met. The evidence is conclusive, and is now in the public domain.”

LaRouche warned that the release of the DIA “smoking gun” will drive President Obama to acts of desperation. “Expect acts of desperation from Obama. His regime is about to be dumped.”

The Sept. 12, 2012 DIA “secret” document stated, in part: “The attack on the American consulate in Benghazi was planned and executed by the Brigade of Captive Omar Abdul Rahman (BCOAR). BCOAR is also responsible for past attacks on the Red Cross in Benghazi and the attack on the British ambassador, they have approximately 120 members. The BCOAR are connected to Ansar al Sharia katiba, commanded by Sufian al GUMMA.

“...The attack was planned ten or more days prior on approximately 01 September 2012. The intention was to attack the consulate and to kill as many Americans as possible, to seek revenge for the U.S. killing of Aboyahiye ALALIBY in Pakistan and in memorial of the 11 September 2001 attack on the World Trade Center buildings.

“The leader of BCOAR is Abdul Baset AZUZ, AZUZ was sent by ZAWARI to set up al-Qaeda (AQ) bases in Libya.”

Other DIA documents released as part of the FOIA action included an October 2012 report, documenting the flow of weapons from Benghazi into the hands of jihadist Syrian rebels. Another DIA report from August 2012 documented the strong al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood ties of the leading Syrian opposition groups, and actually anticipated the creation of an Islamic State on the border region of Syria and Iraq.

More broadly, as EIR has documented, the Obama Administration—in collusion with the British, Saudis, and French—actually sponsored the terrorist groups involved, which came to power after the gruesome murder of Libyan head of state Qaddafi. This policy thrust has led to the current mayhem in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen, and threatens to lead to a global confrontation.
