On his radio show this morning, Glenn Beck called for Obama’s impeachment.
Saying that arming known terrorists is an impeachable offense, Beck said, “You’re arming and aiding enemies of the United States. Enemies who are not even a direct threat to the United States.”
He told his listening audience, “We did not get into bed with Hitler to defeat Japan,” calling out Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham for their involvement in the Syrian action and advised Arizona voters to get rid of McCain.
“We did not get into bed with Hitler to defeat Japan. This is treason and impeachable. The president knows it’s against the law. It’s why he waived it.”
According to a published report in the Washington Examiner, Obama did this to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to “vetted” opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.
“Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, which was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., in 2001. Assad’s regime is backed by Iran and Hezbollah.
The president, citing his authority under the Arms Export Control Act, announced today that he would “waive the prohibitions in sections 40 and 40A of the AECA related to such a transaction.”
