Senator Rand Paul: Obama Administration May Be Involved in Guns-to-Jihadists Cover-up

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) suggested the Obama Administration may hve been smuggling guns to jihadist groups in the Middle East in a possible “international Fast and Furious” gun running operation.
Rand Paul was a guest on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on Sunday night.

World Net Daily reported, via Free Republic:

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., raised questions during a radio interview today about whether the Obama administration was smuggling guns to jihadist rebels in a possible “international Fast and Furious” that the White House has tried to cover up.

Speaking on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s WABC Radio, Paul said the guns scheme could help explain the reason for the coordinated attacks against the U.S. special mission and CIA annex in Benghazi last September.

Stated Paul: “There is also some concern about whether or not Libyan arms are being ferried through Turkey into Syrian rebels and whether or not that had something to do with the cover-up that came out of the administration when the administration was saying that, ‘Oh, this attack in Benghazi had something to do with a film.’

“Maybe that was to cover up that there was some kind of gun smuggling going on over there, some kind of international fast and furious was going on in Libya and that this was a cover-up,” Paul continued. “These are some of the questions that we are going to have for Hillary Clinton when she comes before our committee.

    Any impeachment proceedings require a “trial” in the Senate. We ALL KNOW that Harry Reid would NEVER allow any proceedings to even be brought before the Senate for consideration. Barack Obama knows this.

    My point is that Barack Obama is IMPEACHMENT PROOF! He could be personally executing people behind the White House and he simply cannot be removed from office. Worse, the Media would NEVER REPORT any of it!

    For the next 2 years (and probably beyond that), Barack Obama is the most dangerous man on the planet, protected by Harry Reid and his many sycophants in the media.

    From Day One my contention has always been Obama armed a sworn enemy of the United States – al-Qaida.

    It has all the hallmarks of Obama’s thought process.

    Isn’t Senator Paul a little late at this party? Most of us–at least here, at Breitbart and Daily Caller–have been saying this for months. Arms were being shipped from Libya to insurgents in the Middle East: particularly to Syria.

  • Falcon ..totally agree …….you have to wonder why he’s purging our best military leaders……..

    You are correct and many, many folks, like you, have been saying this from the beginning only finally, someone in a position of authority/ability to do something/actually bring attention to this coverup is willing to tell it like it is and not afraid of the goons in the regime!

    Stay strong Sen. Paul. . .we support you and your efforts to expose the most corrupt administration in the history of our country.

    Stand up, Speak out and Fight back (and stay safe and watch your back Sen. Paul. . .you just never know with this regime).

    Does anyone know just what type of firearms and ammo have been purchased by our various government agencies and whether the same have been used by the jihadists? I will now go and do some research and see if I can answer my own question.

  • jonnot

    You are correct, GotFreedom, except I wish it were someone other than Paul coming out on this. Everyday, it seems, Senator Paul is making more and more sweeping statements to the press. So many, in fact, that now what he says is mostly being dismissed–by the state media, of course–as attempts at positioning himself for a presidential run in 2016. Better that Cruz, Paul Ryan or another of our “voices” had said this.

  • RedBeard

    I would not be shocked in the slightest to find out that Obama engineered precisely this sort of underhanded thing that flies in the face of American interests. I put nothing past him. He hates his own country as it was, hence his pathological need to “fundamentally change America” as he himself has said in public.

  • saveus

    good luck trying to get the truth from hillary and bho

  • In a world where American Food Stamps are being promoted to Mexican citizens in Mexico, I’ll believe many things. There has been the hint of this kind of scandal whispered for awhile. As Sherlock Holmes says, “Eliminate all other factors, and the one which remains must be the truth.”

    #10 jonnot . . .excellent points and if makes me wonder, why has Paul Ryan been so quiet since the end of the campaign? He was going to be VP for goodness sake and yet he has not spoken out (since the election)–why? Under the thumb of Boehner and the elite establishment GOP? Just trying to fly under the radar. . .I don’t know what to make of him but I wish he would speak out. . .wish more of them would speak out!

  • #12 is right – do any one of you really believe Hillary would tell the truth on this? She just needed more time to make up a story and ensure herself the truth wasn’t gonna come out.

    BTW, anyone seen any of those 20 people rescued that night?

    #16- exactly my question from day one…where are the 20 survivors/witnesses of Benghazi….as State Dept. lackeys they have no doubt been silenced, but they owe a debt to the Navy Seals, who rescued them & sacrificed their lives, to reveal the truth even if it implicates their bosses Obama & Hilary.

    The Congressional hearings are too focused on the video, who cares about the video, let’s get an answer on where Obama was when the murder on our Ambassador was occuring…was Obama infact watching the attack in real time & pusillanimously told the CIA & Seals to stand down?

    Obama owns the Libya war which was his initiative, w/o Congressional approval. Mali is a direct result of that war b/c the same Jihadist rebels & arms from Libya are now in Syria & Mali. Can’t find a better definition for treason than arming our enemy who carry the same savage Jihadist ideology as those we are fighting, w/ arms-tied, in Afghanistan…they are all Al Queda in one form or another.

    So much for Hilary’s ‘smart power’ & her let’s promote the Muslim Brotherhood…it’s the Islamists stupid, iincluding the MB & all the “rebels” we are arming in Syria, Yemen, Tunisa, Egypt on & on…

    Shrillary looked pretty (gag) healthy at the coronation. She’ll probably get drunk and fall down the stairs at a ball tonight and have recurrent amnesia before hearings tomorrow. Stay tuned.

  • Stella Baskomb

    Big talk from our Dear Leader today about “the people”.

    But the reality is the Obama administration has done little that truly helps people, or keeps us informed of the truth. He’s lost his credibility. His words no longer mean anything – except, of course, to the credulous “51%”.

    Fast and Furious (and many other examples besides) ruined the Obama Administration’s credibility. Obama and his henchmen no longer have plausible deniability.

    When you’ve lost your credibility, each new charge is harder to refute.

    So now the question is: After thinking up Fast and Furious, why would the same administration stop with just Mexico?

    A compelling question.

    It deserves a compelling answer.

    Yeah, the re-hab of Hillary began a week ago when BJClinton said she would outlive his sorry ass! She’ll be back to the 3 a.m. phone call Hillary in no time!” Blood clots? What blood clots? Exhausted? What chu talkin bout Willis? Did I tell you about being shot at?”

    I think we were also running the black ops site at the compound! Not that I think that was a bad idea, it just doesn’t fit his Peace Prize persona so it also must be kept quiet!

    #16, #20

    You think we will hear anything from the Algerian gas plant survivors? They to will be secreted away! It is gonna be a bumpy ride for the next four years!

  • Patty

    maybe? Senator Paul does have a spine. THANK GOD.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    “These are some of the questions that we are going to have for Hillary Clinton when she comes before our committee.”

    Asking questions of a soon-to-be former member of the team in question strikes me unlikely to be productive unless the person being questioned has an interest in exposing all of what’s going on, assuming something is indeed going on out of sight. Otherwise, there’s just going to be denials that anything untoward has occurred.

    Now if a quiet investigation has been conducted and crucial details are now completely in hand, by all means, call in current and former administration members, lay out all the evidence for everyone to see and demand an explanation.

  • This has been reported before

    This was reported earlier! Plus it has been reported that Ambassador Stevens was doing the gun-running for Obama. And it’s been reported that the Ambassador’s death was a kidnapping gone bad, Obama’s plan to have Stevens kidnapped for release of the Blind Terrorist. What we do know is that Obama watched the live streaming video of the fire fight and the deaths of 4 Americans, and told the military to ‘stand down’ 3 x. It’s also been reported that the only person with the authority to say ‘stand down’ is Obama. He refused to save our people. He chose instead to save those terrorists. We need to impeach him for treason and whatever else, and if Reid needs to be tossed first we should do it. Out with the bad people. Reid is all ready in trouble for bribery. Get him out of Congress and then put Obama out.

    I am looking forward to Sen. Paul’s questioning of Hillary, it will certainly be very interesting than the useful fawning garbage.

    I think it’s important to get her on the record so real journalists like Jim can investigate the claims and expose the administration.

    If she lies she could be held in contempt so Rand is going to forensically examine her.

    Yes, it has been going on for sometime as we have been discussing here for quite awhile. It goes all the way back to the Clintons getting NATO to bomb our ally Serbia for the Islamic Fascists in Kosovo.

    Shillery better be careful. Obama has quite a few skeletons in his Chicago closet that belonged to former allies, who died untimely deaths, because they knew too much.

    Some say that Billybob was already warned once, when he went after Obama in the fist 20008 election cycle.

    The stale claim that 40 percent of gun sales lack background checks

    [The White House says the figure comes from a 1997 Institute of Justice report, written by Philip Cook of Duke University and Jens Ludwig of the University of Chicago. This study is based on data collected from a survey in 1994, just the Brady law requirements for background checks was coming into effect. (In fact, the questions concerned purchases in 1993 and 1994, while Brady law went into effect in early 1994.) In other words, this is a really old figure.]

    this guy was spot on, only the joker is on US.. 😡
