Obama’s team of morons has a considerable talent for arming the wrong people.  In addition to providing weapons to the Mexican Drug Cartel, the Obama White House can now add extreme Islamic militant groups to the list.

The New York Times reports,

The Obama administration secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year, but American officials later grew alarmed as evidence grew that Qatar was turning some of the weapons over to Islamic militants, according to United States officials and foreign diplomats.

…the Obama administration clearly was worried about the consequences of its hidden hand in helping arm Libyan militants, concerns that have not previously been reported. The weapons and money from Qatar strengthened militant groups in Libya, allowing them to become a destabilizing force since the fall of the Qaddafi government.

The experience in Libya has taken on new urgency as the administration considers whether to play a direct role in arming rebels in Syria, where weapons are flowing in from Qatar and other countries.

The Obama administration did not initially raise objections when Qatar began shipping arms to opposition groups in Syria, even if it did not offer encouragement, according to current and former administration officials. But they said the United States has growing concerns that, just as in Libya, the Qataris are equipping some of the wrong militants.

The United States, which had only small numbers of C.I.A. officers in Libya during the tumult of the rebellion, provided little oversight of the arms shipments. Within weeks of endorsing Qatar’s plan to send weapons there in spring 2011, the White House began receiving reports that they were going to Islamic militant groups. They were “more antidemocratic, more hard-line, closer to an extreme version of Islam” than the main rebel alliance in Libya, said a former Defense Department official.

With a track record of supplying guns to our enemies, maybe Obama should limit his passion for gun control to himself, instead of the American people.

  1. Say don’t you need Congress’s permission aka vote/law to do that?

  2. Obie continues to side with the Muzzy Bro’hood… could almost guarantee Obie knew what was going on.. but this gives him plausible deniability..

    We need to get this criminal removed from office ASAP!

  3. this is not a mistake on the part of the obama administration.

  4. What a bunch of incompetent fools–best case scenario for them.

  5. It is ASTONISHING to me but this will probably not be mentioned by the networks. If this were Nixon or Bush or Reagan, calls for impeachment would be shouted from every microphone. This is a crime.

  6. At what point will ANYONE in elected office stand up and say the word “treason”? What will it take? This is Fast & Furious II, and those are just the gunrunning / arming our enemies programs that we know about! If this isn’t aiding and abetting our enemies, what is?? If being outright complicit in the murder of 5 Americans (Benghazi + Brian Terry) isn’t a crime, then everyone accused of that crime is likewise innocent.
    This is a complete destruction of the rule of law, and further proof that the first lie Hussein uttered was when he stumbled his way through the Oath of Office.
    When will justice prevail?

  7. Incompetent, ignorant, or purposefully treasonous?

    I pick all three.

  8. You don’t really think this was by accident, do you? Why do people continue to pretend Obama is simply stupid, rather than the obvious reality, which is that he is actively working as a partner with the Islamic radicals?

    It amazes me how many people continue to think this administration is dumb.

    NEWS FLASH! They know EXACTLY what they’re doing.

  9. The United States, which had only small numbers of C.I.A. officers in Libya during the tumult of the rebellion, provided little oversight of the arms shipments.

    Maybe the CIA will be sending their LGBT recruits to Libya. That would probably be rather unwise, but then common sense has never been much of a strong suit for many government officials and a lot of their worker drones…

  10. Given this criminal Regime’s proclivity at doing whatever they want, giving guns to rabid Islamists just like they do to rabid Mexican Drug cartels doesn’t surprise me in the least.

    And where is the ineffective, inept Congress now?

  11. You can’t fix stupid.

  12. Iran Contra all over but the left will defend this president if he murdered his entire family in the Oval Office.

  13. And of course this story was spiked until after the election.

  14. yeah, and Reagan armed the jihadists to drive the Soviets out of Afghan.
    you guys have nothing to say, excepting Ron Paul fans, I will listen to them
    because of their consistency.

  15. What was Chris Stevens doing in Benghazi on 9/11?
    That’s the question that needs to to be answered.
    I’d wager he knew more about this than the oBama regime would ever want disclosed.

  16. Time to break out the mohamhead turbin bomb posters.

    I doubt it is just a coincidence that Barry refused to dispatch military units to do a rescue, dead men after all tell no tales.

    Ambassador Stevens was “Vince Foster’ed”.
