Arms dealer the Obama scapegoat on Libya to 'protect' Hillary

Marc Turi, an American arms dealer and contractor for the CIA was interviewed on Fox News in an exclusive since the criminal charges against him were dropped. He told the news organization that the Obama administration, with Hillary Clinton's State Department cooperation, tried and failed to make him a scapegoat for a 2011 weapons program designed to arm Libyan rebels, which actually spun out of control.

If you were wondering what the hell we were doing in Libya, this should help you understand.

"I would say, 100 percent, I was victimized . . . to somehow discredit me, to throw me under the bus, to do whatever it took to protect their next presidential candidate," he told Catherine Herridge, Fox News chief intelligence correspondent.

Turi, 48, explained the he has been in the middle of a failed federal investigation by the Justice Department that has cost the taxpayer about $10 million and has gone on for five years.

He said the Justice Department quickly dropped the case to avoid exposing the details of the Libyan weapons program to the public that was designed to force the overthrow of Muammar Qaddafi during the 2011 Arab Spring.

"Those transcripts from current as well as former CIA officers were classified," he explained of the evidence in the case. "If any of these relationships [had] been revealed it would have opened up a can of worms. There wouldn't have been any good answer for the U.S. government especially in this election year."

The Justice Department had a deadline of last week to produce records to the defense as part of the disclosure requirement. 

Turi claims he was specifically "targeted by the Obama administration," adding the he "lost everything -- my family, my friends, my business, my reputation."

Turi was going to have the U.S. supply conventional weapons toQatar and the UAE, which would then turn around and supply them to Libya--keeping us out of the spotlight. But he says he never sold any weapons and was cut out of the plan. Working with the CIA, he said Clinton's State Department had the lead and used its own people, with weapons flowing to Libya and Syria.

"Some (weapons) may have went out under control that we had with our personnel over there and the others went to these militia. That's how they lost control over it," Turi explained. "I can assure you that these operations did take place and those weapons did go in different directions."

Turi believes all the weapons fell into the hands of Al Qaeda, Ansar al-Sharia and ISIS. He also believes the emails sent about the weapons programs were deleted by Hillary Clinton and her team because "it would have gone to an organization within the Bureau of Political Military affairs within the State Department known as PM/RSAT (Office of Regional Security and Arms Transfers.) That's where you would find Jake Sullivan, Andrew Shapiro and  a number of political operatives that would have been ultimately involved with this foreign policy."

The four felony counts were dismissed last week "with prejudice." The government can't come after him again on this matter.

The DOJ's decision to drop the case against Turi sheds new light on Clinton's Benghazi testimony of 2013. When she was questioned by Sen. Rand Paul if any of the weapons were sent to other countries, Turkey included, she claimed that she did not know the answer.

Robert Stryk, a close friend and adviser of Turi described him to Fox News: "Marc Turi is a true patriot who served his country in the fight against Islamofascist terrorists in the Middle East. His fraudulent prosecution by Hillary Clinton's associates in the Justice Department is deplorable as is the fate of the American heroes murdered in Benghazi. Our most loyal citizens deserve better."

Turi alluded to the idea that there will be more coming on the 2012 Benghazi attacks--that is, if he doesn't end up "mugged" and shot in the back on some city street.
