BOEHNER ADMITS: “I’m Somewhat Familiar With” Gun-Running to Turkey… But It’s Classified (Audio)
What did Speaker Boehner know and when did he know it?
Back in January Speaker Boehner admitted to Laura Ingraham that he heard about the gun running to Turkey but that “most of what I know about this came from a classified source.”
The Blaze posted this audio back in January.
This didn’t get a whole lot of play at the time.
This weekend Kerry Picket at Breitbart – Big Peace reported on the January interview:
Radio host Laura Ingraham asked Boehner on January 24 about Senator Rand Paul’s questioning to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. He asked if the secretary was aware of U.S. involvement in the procuring of weapons that were transferred, bought or sold to Turkey out of Libya. Clinton, seemingly confused, told Paul “nobody [had] ever raised” the issue with her before.
Boehner replied to Ingraham, “I’m somewhat familiar with the chatter about this and the fact that these arms were moving towards Turkey, but most of what I know about this came from a classified source and I really can’t elaborate on it.”
Four members of the “Gang of Eight” have told Breitbart News over the past six months they knew nothing about any CIA operation in Benghazi involving the smuggling of Libyan weapons into Turkey that may have been shipped to Syrian rebels, some of whom were affiliated to al-Qaeda groups.
Last week Jake Tapper reported that dozens of CIA operatives were on the ground in Benghazi during the 9-11 attack.
