U.S.-Approved Arms for Libya
Rebels Fell Into Jihadis’ Hands

New York Times, by James Risen, Mark Mazzetti*

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 12/6/2012 6:15:50 AM

WASHINGTON — 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. No evidence has emerged linking the weapons provided by the Qataris during the uprising against Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi to the attack that killed four Americans at the United States diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in September. But in the months before, the Obama administration clearly was worried about the consequences

Libya, Mexico. Have Obama and Holder armed anyone else of which we are not yet aware? It seems that the only people he doesn´t trust with weapons are Americans.

Obviously we had no business siding with the Libyan rebels and Gadaffi could have put this mob rule takeover down if not Obama hiring NATO jets to bomb the place.Gadaffi´s no candidate fr sainthood but at least he maintained some kind of stability in the country. As with Egypt,Obama could have given them 6 months to institute reforms and have open elections. Instead he backed the wrong horse like he always does.Now he´s intent on backing Syrian rebels but Bashar saw what happened in these other countries and was ready for it.

And the NYSlimes rushes to assure us that none of these weapons were used against us in Beghazzi. And they know this how????

Since we have refused to investigate the massacre it´s clear to me that these weapons were used against us.

Initially there was fear that Fast and Furious weapons were used by Jared Loughner in the Gifford shooting.

There were also assurances that the Aurora theater shooter guns were not from F&F.

Is there any doubt that these weapons are everywhere?

Yes, it all comes back to "the Obama administration." Any investigation, just like Fast and Furious, will be filled with obfuscation and murkiness so that no accountability will reach anyone in the administration who actually IS responsible.

A decision this large would never happen without a president´s approval. Obama is a cancer that just keeps growing. Is there a doctor in the house?

Ahhhhhh -- so now the truth surfaces... The violence came as a direct result of the terrorists getting OUR weapons to use against OUR Ambassador.....

No wonder the "won" wanted to HIDE the truth.....

Another Fast and Furious -- on the Middle Eastern "border" this time....

NYT: ".... an American arms dealer who proposed weapons transfers in an e-mail exchange with a United States emissary later killed in Benghazi..."

Is the NYT revealing why Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi on 9/11/12? Not to open a cultural center but for weapons transfers. With whom, to whom? Times is silent on why there were 30+ CIA agents at the nearby annex. Did the NYT try to contact this evacuated group? Surely 1 or 2 must be willing to willing to speak out anonymously. Is the Nobel Peace Prize Committee aware that Obama sponsored arms are now in use by jihadist in Mali and Syria?

Which means that he was too close to the truth.

Kind of ironic that Democrats so eager to send weapons to foreign thugs are just as eager to limit 2nd amendment rights of their fellow, law abiding citizens...

So do you think that between Holder and Obama more people of color have been killed by US imported weapons than liberated?

I suspect a great many weapons were being spirited off to Syria, for those ´´rebels´´.

But hey - let´s get the UN to institute a global policy of gun control that applies mostly to the U.S.

And if it weren´t for the easy availability of guns, a Kansas City football player and his babymama would still be alive.

This gets me so depressed. That the Libya coverup was, from the get-go, an attempt to hide a) that Obama was funneling arms to al Qaeda and b) that there was a black site torture site in Benghazi was patently obvious long long before the election. But the media refused to follow that story and Romney wasn´t man enough to stick it to Obama and the media about it. Now look. Watch folks. Le Deluge.

There were loads of news (from foreign sources)claiming that a lot of the arms obama had provided for his allies were now in the arms of al-qaeda-like jihadis. How you can tell the difference between these savages escapes me. And seeing that obama seems to naturally align with ANYONE who detests the USA, is it a stretch of....imagination/common sense...to think he was supplying his natural allies?

Why do we keep playing games with these people? We keep sending them foreign aid and weapons to one regime after another, hoping they´ll finally see the light and show a little gratitude for the free stuff we´ve been sending them for the last century, afraid of what might happen if we stop. We keep hoping they´ll LIKE us, like a bunch of per-adolescent schoolgirls.

The fact is, they never will. They hate us and want to see us dead. All of us. And we keep shipping them money by the boatload, hoping they´ll eat us last.

How did we get so stupid?

Good: #1, 3, 10, 14, 19, etc. Obama certainly is a cancer and no remission in sight.

So far everything the insider who was interviewed by Canada Free Press seems to be legit. 16 is dead on-Stephens knew too much. There were just too many opportunities and resources available at the DC commie´s disposal to rescue them, than to believe otherwise.

I posted the Egypt crisis article, where libs swim in foam(from foaming at the mouth of course!). This one poster had the audacity to say, "Let the Egyptians sort out their democracy." Ha! Obama overthrew these former allies and now it´s time to leave the situation alone? Ridiculous. Should have left well enough alone to begin with. Who is going to fix Obama´s Middle East mess?

The Obamans erred in supporting the overhrow of two dictators - Mubarak and Ghadaffi- who were no threat to us. That - not any pie in the sky pseudo idealism- should have been the guiding light. Consulting Congress might have added some restraint also. It now looks like Fauntleroy is about to blunder into Syria in the same fashion. Back off - stay out.

Obama claims to fight AQ in Afganistan, while the muslim in him arms our enemies, to fight any resistance to his Brotherhood thugs in Libya and Egypt. Some find this impossible to believe, but their faith in him is misdirected. He seeks their destruction just like the undead aborted baby hopes to live but finds his heart cold and dead. When he gets there someday his fate will be sealed. No forgiveness for the dead eyed killer of freedom, and America. He is the Jihad President, Darwin´s gift to Satan.

I´m so surprised! not. Like when they started the whole Egypt thing their next goal was not always Libya. You know, home of the Mahdi army, the 12 imam, the Senussi?Betcha cash they need some route thru Mitzraim.

Sure would be nice if Americans spent less time turning on their neighbors (hate the rich; hate the poor) and just 10 minutes a day thinking very carefully.

But then we couldn´t spend all day catching up on something that it is too late to do anything about. Proactive is better than reactive. Cuz with the 2nd all you do is almost catch up, all the time and never soon enough to stop them. Postmortem is not good for situations this critical.

A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say?

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

With a Speech, Cardinal

VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.

When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.

Approaching his first presidential trip to Israel, President Obama offered a fresh and foolish — if not feckless — assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat. "Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.

An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It´s a shocker, but it´s also untrue. And to make things worse, the story that followed was riddled with typos. According to the New York Post, which reported the same story earlier on Thursday, "79.3 percent of city public-school grads who went to CUNY’s six two-year colleges arrived without having mastered the basics" of reading, writing, and math, and had to take non-credit remedial classes to catch up.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied. In a Tuesday appearance on HuffPost Live to discuss outreach to African American communities,

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it. Families were supposed to start saving about $2500 a year. If you believed the Obama administration. Reality, according to RAND‘s study, is that the Obama administration’s 7 million figure is deceptive. Supposing 7 million have actually signed up and paid their first premium — which is not a given,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Spanish historians say they have discovered what Monty Python could not – the Holy Grail, the legendary cup Jesus supposedly drank from at the Last Supper. The Spaniards – Margarita Torres and José Ortega del Río – believe the 2,000-year-old vessel is in a church in León in northern Spain. The pair spent three years studying the history of the chalice and last week published a book, “The Kings of the Grail,” making their case. The onyx chalice, they explained, was concealed within another antique vessel known as the Chalice of Doña Urruca, which is located in León’s basilica of

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings. Restaurants, states, [and]

Monday morning’s episide of The View ended with an unexpected surprise. During the “What’s Pop’n” segment, hosts Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd showed a scandalous clip for a recent episode of HBO’s Girls to demonstrate that “not everyone has body issues.” Then, they boldly went where no hosts of The View have gone before. “Lena, she gets press every week for being naked, we’re jumping on the bandwagon,” Shepherd told the cheering audience before asking McCarthy, “Why is my big black box so much bigger yours?” What exactly are The View producers trying to say?
