"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

As I recall...just prior to September 11, someone in Syria shot down a Turkish F-4 reconnaissance aircraft with a shoulder-fired missile of some kind.

On the night of the attack it was reported that Stevens had met with the Turkish Ambassador to Libya shortly before the attacks began. 

Now it is being widely speculated that the CIA was running some kind of gun deal out of Libya, through Turkey and supposedly into the hands of "insurgents" in Syria.  The arms Stevens was dealing came out of the arms stashes of Colonel Kadaffy who had recently assumed room temperature. 

I cannot help but wonder what the Turks really thought about the likelyhood that their Whistling Shitcan Phantom was shot down by a missile that was given to a terrorist by the US Government.  If that were to become public knowledge it would make the Iran-Contra Scandal look insignificant by comparison.  But then the Benghazi attack happened and made an already bad situation even worse, especially with the whole middle East coming unglued in the so-called "Arab Spring", and all of it right before the election.  And of course job number one in Washington was to get Obama reelected, no matter what.

There is a lot more to know about all of this, and none of it makes anyone in the Administration look good, and in fact could lead to a major Constitutional crisis in this country were the entire truth to be known.
