Sen. Rand Paul: “Administration Needs to Answer Are They Running Guns through Turkey to Syria” (Video)

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) weighed in on the Benghazi terrorist attack this morning on America’s Newsroom. Paul said,

I really think part of the cause may have been there was a gun running operation going on in Benghazi, leaving Libya and going to Turkey and distributing arms to the rebels… They’ve interviewed the captain of the ship. A ship from Libya sailed for Turkey a week before the ambassador was killed. It was full of arms and they interviewed the captain and he actually specifically talks about the distribution of the arms to Syrian rebels… And I think the administration needs to answer are they running guns through Turkey to Syria.”

Here’s the video:

You would think the honest leftists would rally around Rand Paul on these accusations.

In October 2012, Malta Today reported that a Libyan-flagged vessel was used by a Malta-based humanitarian organization in a covert US arms smuggling operation to Syrian freedom fighters.

    Is this BBama’s Iran-Contra? Where are the screaming meanies?

    How many fake scandals have to blow up your faces before you learn?

    Try offering something constructive. You’ll be surprised how quickly voters forget you’ve behaved like lunatics.

    How about coming up with a replacement for ObamaCare? We’ve been waiting 5 years for that one.

  • Zelsdorf Ragshaft III

    This, and the fact Obama was running for reelection, is why there was no reponse to the attack on the counselate. The Sec. of Defense said today there was not enough time to respond. 8 hours is not enough time? They did nothing! No response then or now. It is time for a special investigator. This President allowed American citizens to be killed by people he was doing business with. Beyond that, he is killing Americans overseas without due process. Impeach!

    Is Randy a Bashar al-Assad fan?

    Jharp, how about you pay for your own services? Why do you think you can take money out of my pocket to pay for stuff you need. Is there some part of freedom you missed at Commie school?

    No. You’ve got nothing. Obama is squeaky clean and you folks looks stupid with your ginned up fake scandals.

    How did that Benghazi scandal turn out for you losers?

    Did you enjoy Hillary looking Presidential and making republican look like fools in front of the entire country?

    I do. How about you pay for your own wars and leave me out of it?

    JHarp : Maybe the only fools are those who can’t see where Obama (with the media’s encouragement) is taking this country, and those who know where he is going and can’t wait to get there.

  • Sasja

    Yeah, Shrillary really looked presidential at that hearing and sounded presidential as well. Her screeching abilities need to be taught to all who wish to be president. I was really impressed with her ability to read her scripted lines. She does need to work on her acting though. Those outbursts were a little over the top. I think it’s called emoting.

    If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie; If you want to anger a libtard, tell him the truth.

    Let’s see. When Obama took office we were losing 750,000 jobs a month and on the verge of economic catastrophe.

    And now we’ve been gaining jobs for the past 3 years. Detroit is flourishing. Banks are stable. And Wall Street is at a record breaking high.

    And you have a problem with this why?

  • tj

    I suspect that Benghazi incident was intended to kill Stevens, the man who could testify against the pResident’s treasonous gun running operation.

    Think Chicago gangsters.. kill the hit man.. make it very difficult to trace the source of the crime..

    I suspect that the administration set him up to be killed, withheld military support, so the gun running to Al Qeda in support of Syrian rebels would no longer have a direct credible witness. The overthrow of Assad is in order to bring the Muslim Brotherhood to power and create a Muslim caliphate.. as was Eqypt, Libya, Tunisia, ..

    Time to wake up folks..

    The truth is that Detroit is considering bankruptcy.

    jharp, you need to pull your head out of Obama’s rear-end…

  • Sasja

    Detroit is flourishing. You know, idiots like jarp are not interested in living in Realville. They love their make believe land filled with fairy dust and unicorns, so they get really upset when you try to force the real world upon them.

  • owl

    We all know how this bunch that can’t shoot straight like to run guns. Anyone that can manage to run guns to Mexico and get that many women and children killed, should be pros by now.

    Good for Sen Rand. Not your usual scared, wimpy Sen.

    Listened to Sen Cruz at the hearing today and I find him more impressive each time. Looks as if we have a couple of new ones worth watching.

    Detroit is flourishing is a metaphor for the auto industry you stupid jackasses.

    Good grief.

    And the auto industry is flourishing. Thanks to our President. He saved millions of jobs.

    OT but I couldn’t find the other story this pertains to. The following could impact background checks in various ways. I have no idea if it would impact gun buyers background check or not but either way it is concerning.

    Please pass along, this is so important. The link is here in the description to sign petition to the white house. the article below is how this will impact people. thanks!

    Your Physical Illness May Now Be Labeled a Mental Disorder

    To repeat, this time using a hypothetical: For six months, you’ve had bad gastrointestinal symptoms that have been ‘disruptive to your daily life’ because you can’t be far from a bathroom. In the subjective view of a health practitioner, you’ve spent ‘excessive time and energy devoted’ to trying to figure out what to do about it (criteria #3). The result: you may well be diagnosed as suffering from a mental illness called Somatic Symptom Disorder.”

    Please read the entire article for more information.

    If this concerns you too please consider signing the petition at the link provided below.

    Thank you.

    jharp – there is a nutjob in Office and you support him. You are a dumb*ss – take a flying ‘you know what’. I’m sick of your crap.

    Who really wants those ‘muslim brotherhood rebels’ in control of Syria’s stockpile of chemical and biological weapons? Prophecy does not bode well for Damascus.

    Sasja, I went to Detroit and they almost fooled me. What tipped me off was the lack of rainbows; Oh, and all I saw were empty lots a la South Bronx 1970 or Dresden…with more criminals and muslims.

    P.S. There was a lack of fairy dust and no unicorns. They told me I had to bring my own and more for those who couldn’t afford it.

    I shook the dust off my feet and did 80 mph outta there.

    Just think if the car manufacturers (that we subsidize and still owe us btw), weren’t there.
