If you thought Bob Beckel’s Benghazi meltdown was bad, it had nothing on the F-bomb laden tirade of Cenk Uygur on his internet show. The reason may have something to do with support for his home country – Turkey. Uygur holds dual U.S. / Turkish citizenship.
There are very credible reports that Benghazi was about a gun-running operation to Syria through Turkey. In the weeks after the attacks, Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge reported as much. U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens met with Turkish Counsul General Ali Sait Akin shortly before he was murdered, as Shoebat.com reported.
On top of all that, renowned journalist Seymour Hersh, who broke both the My Lei massacre and the Abu Ghraib prison scandal reported in an extremely explosive article entitled, The Red Line and the Rat Line that the purpose of the U.S. operation in Benghazi was to arm the Syrian jihadists through an alliance with Turkey, a NATO ally of the U.S. According to Hersh, that operation was led by then CIA Director David Petraeus.
Though Uygur considers himself an agnostic, he was born Muslim in Turkey and we all know how Islam views apostates. Nonetheless, Uygur was open to working for al-Jazeera America, which purchased CURRENT TV, Uygur’s employer at the time. Though that didn’t happen, Al-Jazeera is based in Qatar and is government run. Qatar – along with Saudi Arabia – provided the funding for the Benghazi gun-running operation according to Hersh.
If Uygur – a Turkish citizen – is supportive of Turkey’s agenda and if that agenda is revealed in part, by Hersh, then Mr. Uygur would be very interested in not getting to the truth about Benghazi, as evidenced by his F-bombs.
Thou doth protest too much, Cenk?
