Obama Administration: We’ve Lost Track of Syria’s Chemical Weapons (Video)

In 2005 ten captured Al-Qaida terrorists stood trial in Jordan for attempting to explode roughly 20 tons of chemical weapons. Authorities captured the weapons coming into Jordan through Syria. It was the largest WMD cache ever captured for a planned massacre.

Now this…
The Obama Administration admitted on Friday that the US had lost track of some of Syria’s chemical weapons. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta told reporters that they are not sure if the opposition obtained the WMD or how much they may have obtained.

Foreign Policy

The U.S. has lost track of some of Syria’s chemical weapons, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Friday, and does not know if any potentially lethal chemicals have fallen into the hands of Syrian rebels or Iranian forces inside the country.

“There has been intelligence that there have been some moves that have taken place. Where exactly that’s taken place, we don’t know.” Panetta said, in a Pentagon press briefing.

Panetta said that the “main sites” in Syria storing chemical weapons with which the Pentagon is most concerned remain secured by the Syrian military. But there is “some intelligence” that “limited” movements of weapons from other sites have occurred, he said, “for the Syrians to better secure what they – the chemicals.”

Panetta’s statement follows reporting that Syrian rebels claim to have taken control of a military base that contains chemical weapons.

“But with regards to the movement of some of this and whether or not they’ve been able to locate some of it,” he said of U.S. intelligence, “we just don’t know.”

Following the briefing, Pentagon officials sought to clarify the extent of their grasp on the status of Syria’s stockpiles. “We’ve never had perfect visibility into the Syrian chemical weapons stockpile, but we have excellent information that accounts for most of it,” said a senior defense offiical, speaking on background. “We’ve seen it move, and we’ve been able to make an assessment as to why it’s been moved. This is a highly distributed network of chemical weapons sites, and we have a good grasp of what’s going on inside that network.”

What complete incompetence.

The Obama administration moved Friday to rally Syria’s opposition with pledges of $45 million in new non-lethal and humanitarian assistance.

    And we are too if we re-elect these pathetic and dangerous clowns.

    Pannetta has been out of his depth for a long, long time. We are paying for his incompetence. With Obama and his other advisors, he’s in company of ample fools.

  • Tom Kubiak, Colonel, USAF (Ret)

    I read that the rebels are in possession of them as of this morning. The administration doesn’t surf the web.

  • JenBee

    They’re going to use those chemical weapons on each other at some point in time – that’s a given – so at the risk of sounding callous, I sure hope it’s in the next 35 days.

    After watching the incompetence of this administration for the past 3.5 years this should scare all of us especially Israel and Europe.

    Obama: He said he would worry when Nuclear Weapons start moving.

    don’t know if anyone else recalls Jordan being attacked
    with chemical weapons via Iraq via Syria during the war,
    which is why Israel bombed Syria’s nuke facility in 07,
    also believe they struck some sort of facility in Iran as
    well.. but of course any serious explosions in Iran never
    happened, heard they don’t have homosexuals either..

    flashback to April 17, 2004:

    Jordan authorities foil chemical attack in Amman

    [“They see Jordan as vulnerable target and believe any major attack to
    destabilize the country would weaken American goals in the region and
    particularly in Iraq,” said one Western diplomat.

    Jordan’s close US ties and 1994 peace agreement with Israel are
    unpopular with many in the kingdom, and there is strong support
    for Islamist militant groups in some areas.]

    Oh, who are they trying to kid. They know exactly what’s going on.

  • Jaimo

    Are these the same WMD that were shipped to Syria from Iraq before we bombed the crap out of them? The ones that supposedly didn’t exist, prompting the Bush Lied People Died meme.

    Ex-Military Mock Obama For Spiking Football on Bin Laden With Toon

    The analogy is clear: Obama gave the correct order on Bin Laden, but for him to take credit repeatedly for the Bin Laden kill is absurd. No doubt the folks at Special Operations Speaks speak for many current members of the military in their frustration with a Commander in Chief who seems far more willing to take credit for their actions than he is to support them more generally.

    I probably could state this in a more refined manner, nonetheless: thanks, you bunch of a**wipes.

    Please, God, do with me what thy will but deliver us from these incompetents. Not for me or my wife, but for our children and grandchildren. Amen.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    I’d be interested to know where those chemical weapons really came from…
