As early as March 2011 there were reports that as many as 1,000 Al-Qaeda members had infiltrated the rebel forces in Libya.

But the Obama Administration chose to arm these rebels.
One year later US Ambassador Chris Stevens was murdered by Al-Qaeda rebels in Libya.
Eurasia Review reported:

In spite of the threat of American weapons ending up in the hands of terrorist groups, President Barack Obama secretly approved an arms transfer to Libyan rebels through Qatar at the height of the rebellion against Moamar Khadhafi, a knowledgeable source noted on Friday.

However, American counterterrorists are discovering that some of those U.S. weapons ended up in the hands of radical Islamists including associates of al-Qaeda, according to a law enforcement source who trained police in the Middle East.

Some Americans who are retired from the military, as well as intelligence and law enforcement agencies, believe there should be an investigation into possible connections between the weapons provided by the Qataris back then and the attack that killed an American ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012.

During the months leading up to the terrorist attacks, the Obama administration worried about its part in helping to arm the Libyan rebels who were members of terrorist organizations especially so close to Election Day.

Experts believe that Obama’s experience with arming Libyan rebels is why his administration is nervous about arming the rebels in Syria, where money and weapons are flowing in from Qatar and other countries. It’s widely believed that al-Qaeda in Iraq and other terrorist groups are active in the Syrian rebellion.

  1. If Bush had done that you would never hear the end of it, but with Teflon Barry anything slides right off.

  2. Well, Obama happily armed Mexican drug smugglers, so why shouldn’t he arm Islamists?

  3. As are the Syrian ‘rebels’ that everyone is taking up for over the Syrian Christians.

  4. Fast and Furious on steriods is Benghazi.However, the only item our vaunted”fourth estate” cares about is the perception of racism practiced by the Republicans when questioning Susan Rice and her relationship to Benghazi.

  5. “…some of those U.S. weapons ended up in the hands of radical Islamists”.

    “Some”, as if the rest were in the hands of moderate or even non-radical Islamists. How FN stupid has the World become where a reporter can say this and not be laughed out of the business. They are all radical muslims by modern definitions, period.

  6. No surprise here. All terrorist and rebels are armed by the US or russia.

  7. Another Contra Iran Arms with horrible result? And the media is not interested. because their ideology is in line with The Won and they are willing to break some eggs to reach that goal.

    The propaganda media is not in the business to tell the truth.

  8. We are coming up on the 3-month anniversary of the Benghazi killings of four Americans and we still do not know why our President did not save them.

    WE DON’T KNOW IF THE PRESIDENT REALLY GAVE THE ORDER THAT EVERYTHING POSSIBLE BE DONE TO SAVE THEM — NOR DO WE KNOW WHO COUNTERMANDED THIS ORDER AND TOLD OUR TROOPS TO STAND DOWN (ASSUMING THE PRESIDENT GAVE THE ORDER).

    We must keep pressuring for answers.

  9. And so are Mexican Cartel. From Brian Terry to Stevens and the other four Americans.

    YET, VOTERS SEEM TO LIKE OBAMA. NICE GUY (sarc)

  10. Obama will always side with Islamic Terrorists over Americans, side with wrong over right, and side with evil over good. It is his nature. The title of Obama “Autobiography” should have been “Growning up Communist: How I learned to Hate America, Liberty and Free Markets.”

    True if it was learned a Republican had done the things Obama has done the MSM and Democraps would scream bloody murder and insist upon an investigation. But when their guy is guilty…all you hear is the sound of crickets.

  11. The Obama regime is anti-gun for the Americans but “gun runners” out of the US.

  12. Some Americans who are retired from the military, as well as intelligence and law enforcement agencies, believe there should be an investigation into possible connections between…

    Go right ahead. The outcome will be like all the other investigations previously conducted: nothing will happen.
