We took a media inquiry from a Breitbart.com reporter this week asking us about an important Obama administration Benghazi scandal document that we revealed last year. The reporter’s focus was a Defense Intelligence Agency report, which revealed that the opposition in Syria was driven by several groups, including the precursor to ISIS — al Qaeda in Iraq. The intelligence document stated that the growing sectarian direction of the war would have dire consequences for Iraq, which included the “grave danger” of the rise of ISIS:
The deterioration of the situation has dire consequences on the Iraqi situation and are as follows:

From NationalReview.com, By Andrew C. McCarthy, 10/12/13 – Here is where we’re at: The Republican establishment — the guys who told us that for a trillion dollars and several thousand American casualties, we could build “Islamic democracies” that would be reliable U.S. allies in the War on Terror — say it is Ted Cruz who is “delusional” and the effort to stave off Obamacare that is “unattainable.”
These self-appointed sages are, of course, the same guys who told us the way to “stabilize” and “democratize” Libya was to help jihadists topple and kill the resident dictator — who, at the time, was a U.S. ally, providing intelligence about the jihadists using his eastern badlands as a springboard for the anti-American terror insurgency in Iraq.
