Libyan Jihadis Armed By… Obama

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.

    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.

  • TXGuitarMan

    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?

  • Economan

    Incompetent, ignorant, or purposefully treasonous?

    I pick all three.

  • Gregor

    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.

    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…

  • SeniorD

    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?

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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”.

  • i wonder what bob costas has to say about this?

  • vicki

    I believe that Bengazi murders were a messed up kidnapping that the White House knew of. The idea was that Ambassador Stevens was unguarded and if kidnapped they could make deal to give the Muslim Brotherhood the Blind Shake who did the first WTC bombing. Morsi said he wants him back to be the hero he is to them. Muslim Brotherhood has been meeting in the White House, yes it is true. The Obama administration likes to arm Mexican cartels and Islamists. My bet the weapons used to kill the Ambassador was supplied by Obama and Holder (his law firms were defending Gitmo terrorist). This is cover-up of murder and treason.

    Andrea,
    How about telling too much truth. Now that the WMDs we watched leave Iraq from Oct thru December 2002 are being armed in Syria right now, guess we can claim a hat trick.

    Qatar buys French and Russian weapons and gives them to Lybian rebels, but in the fever swamps, that becomes Obama arming our enemies. Typical.

    Benghazi bungle an attempt to advance Islam?

    [The issue is the “defamation of religions” resolution pending at the
    United Nations. It was introduced by Islamic nations and coalitions
    to criminalize any negative reference to Islam or Muslims.

    Clare Lopez, a strategic policy and intelligence expert with a focus on
    the Middle East, national defense, WMD, and counterterrorism, said
    that after the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three
    others, the Obama administration made an impromptu decision to
    advance the Islamic agenda item it already had endorsed.

    “The Obama administration, and especially the Department of State led
    by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, are coordinating closely with the
    [Organization of the Islamic Conference] to achieve implementation of
    U.N. Human Rights Commission Resolution 16/18, which despite some
    cosmetic wording changes, remains the vehicle through which the OIC
    is determined to work toward the criminalization of the criticism of Islam
    in U.S. law,” she said.

    She also has specific areas of expertise in Iraq and Iran, having spent
    20 years with the CIA. Now a private consultant, she is vice president
    of The Intelligence Summit and is professor at the Center for
    Counterintelligence and Security Studies.

    Her comments came at an Endowment for Middle East Truth panel
    discussion recently concerning the OIC’s repeated demand to punish
    those who criticize Islam in U.N. member nations. The OIC is a coalition
    of 57 Islamic states, including the Palestinian Authority.]

    yes, yes, and HELL YES!!

    [On October 1, 2009, the Obama administration in conjunction with the
    Egyptian government, introduced an anti-free speech measure to the
    United Nation’s Human Rights Council (HRC). It was adopted the next
    day without a vote.]

    Egypt’s Morsi Slams Free Speech at Clinton Forum

    [He condemned the violent acts of some demonstrators. Dozens of
    people, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, have been killed
    since protests began last week after excerpts of the anti-Islam
    video were dubbed into Arabic and posted onto YouTube.

    [..]

    Morsi addressed the controversy over the YouTube film directly, calling
    it a work of “religious defamation.” He said that while as a Muslim he
    viewed human life as sacred, he added that “physical violence is not
    the only form of violence.”]

    “Act Of Terror”

    “High on a Mountaintop”

    Exactly. The right sits doing nothing. A pox on both their houses… they’re tearing down this country together. Don’t some of those idiots have children and grandchildren? And where the hell else is there to go once you tear this country down?

    BTW,

    Why was Stevens in Benghazi?

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Qatar buys French and Russian weapons and gives them to Lybian rebels, but in the fever swamps, that becomes Obama arming our enemies.

    Don’t you even read the excerpts or the articles before posting your crap? Didn’t you see this?

    “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 administration gave its approval to the transactions, and what’s more, they even acknowledged their own culpability, you IDIOT.

    That was one of the rumors, Stevens was sent to Benghazi to try to recover some type of missile system that had “fallen” into insurgents hands.

    Whether this rumor or the one #22 speaks of was true, We the People have a right to know. The attempts to cover up the attack and MURDER for 4 US Citizens are indeed treasonous acts and the act done to cause the attack was probably the reason for the cover up.

    However, I fear that like Fast and Furious, the truth will not come out for many years to come if ever. Too bad we don’t have more patriotic people actually working in the US Government.

    BTW, where’s Hillary and when will she testify lie to Congress?

  • GP Fan

    Of course, this comes out AFTER the election! They’ve probably been sitting on it all this time! Traitors.

    The fiscal cliff is a handy distraction for the Lord and Savior. Once we start talking about it again, we need to find out where our leader was for over 7 hours during the attack. Also, why was the ambassador in Benghazi instead of Tripoli ? Forget about who changed the talking points and the silly affair of Petraus. I belive a crime was committed (murder), hence the coverup. How long will it take to get to the bottom of it ?
