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?

  • jharp

    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!

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

    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.

    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..

    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.

  • Candy

    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.

    Exclusive: Obama authorizes secret U.S. support for Syrian rebels Aug, 1, 2012

    Snip:

    Last week, Reuters reported that, along with Saudi Arabia and Qatar, Turkey had established a secret base near the Syrian border to help direct vital military and communications support to Assad’s opponents.

    This “nerve center” is in Adana, a city in southern Turkey about 60 miles from the Syrian border, which is also home to Incirlik, a U.S. air base where U.S. military and intelligence agencies maintain a substantial presence.

    Group Gets U.S. License to Fund Syria Rebels

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444405804577561482242140956.html

    In the first link via Reuters, it mentions the above:

    The State Department said on Wednesday the U.S. government had set aside a total of $25 million for “non-lethal” assistance to the Syrian opposition. A U.S. official said that was mostly for communications equipment, including encrypted radios.

    The State Department also says the United States has set aside $64 million in humanitarian assistance for the Syrian people, including contributions to the World Food Program, the International Committee of the Red Cross and other aid agencies.

    Also on Wednesday, the U.S. Treasury confirmed it had granted authorization to the Syrian Support Group, Washington representative of one of the most active rebel factions, the Free Syrian Army, to conduct financial transactions on the rebel group’s behalf.

    Candy, according to the article I linked above, the auto companies for the most part are not in Detroit anymore.

    “The automakers have little to say publicly about the crisis. Most of their operations in Michigan are now outside Detroit, and getting any top executive to even discuss the possibility of a city bankruptcy was almost impossible at the auto show. “I don’t want to get into the politics,” said GM CEO Dan Akerson, while Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said: “I don’t see what the consequences would be for us.”

    That. And Hillary making complete fools out of Republican Senators McCain, Johnson, and Paul.

    ‘Obama AWOL when Americans killed’

    [Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says President Obama was out of touch
    completely the night four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens,
    were killed in Benghazi, Libya.

    In his testimony to Congress today, Panetta said that the operational
    details of the response, the decisions on what resources were available
    to help, and other decisions were left “up to us.”]

    oh brother, didn’t he/they say he was on top of it, and
    described himself/him as being heroic in his attempts??

    how dumbed down are we, evidently not enough.. /s/

    Snuggling with a 14 year is sick.

    jharp….

    those were the words of his daughters in their younger years…Michelle was telling us (during the ’08 campaign) what they said years ago.

    You wouldn’t dare assume Michelle was perverted to even think they might “crawl in bed” with their dad – NO…you won’t attack her for her statement, but you try to hit me —

    My statement was that it’s lovely to snuggle with “the little ones” —

    and of course, I’m sure you’ll fail to see or acknowledge how you’ve exposed your blatant hypocrisy.
