START WITH A BIG LIE
Nobody Seems To Know How Terrorists Got A Bunch Of US Military Equipment
Hezbollah terrorists featured U.S. armored personnel carriers in their latest video, and nobody seems to know how they got their hands on them.
The latest propaganda video was shot in Syria, where Hezbollah is forward deployed at the behest of its Iranian masters. Hezbollah is a Lebanon-based terrorist organization, heavily sponsored and managed by the Islamic Republic of Iran. Hezbollah also remains a powerful political entity in Lebanon, where it is entrenched in the government.
The Washington Post notes that some defense analysts believed the armored personnel carriers either were stolen from the Lebanese military or given up voluntarily. The U.S. has provided the Lebanese military with $221 million in U.S. military aid in 2016 so far, some of which came in the form of armored personnel carriers. The U.S. aid is provided to help Lebanon combat the growing threat of violent extremists from Syria.
The problem is both the Lebanese military and the U.S. Department of State deny that’s how Hezbollah got its hands on the equipment…
Really? No one seems to know…
THE ANSWER TO THIS IS…
CONFIRMED: OBAMA SENT WEAPONS TO MUSLIM TERRORISTS IN BENGHAZI
AND THEN THERE’S STILL THIS-
The Stingers of Benghazi
by JIM GERAGHTY May 24, 2013 4:00 AM
Earlier this week, Roger L. Simon of PJ Media broke a story with shocking revelations, contending that slain U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens was in Benghazi on September 11 to buy back Stinger missiles from al-Qaeda groups that had been originally provided to them by the U.S. State Department. Simon cited two former U.S. diplomats:
Stevens’ mission in Benghazi, they will say, was to buy back Stinger missiles from al-Qaeda groups issued to them by the State Department, not by the CIA. Such a mission would usually be a CIA effort, but the intelligence agency had opposed the idea because of the high risk involved in arming “insurgents” with powerful weapons that endanger civilian aircraft.
Hillary Clinton still wanted to proceed because, in part, as one of the diplomats said, she wanted “to overthrow [Qaddafi] on the cheap.”
This left Stevens in the position of having to clean up the scandalous enterprise when it became clear that the “insurgents” actually were al-Qaeda — indeed, in the view of one of the diplomats, the same group that attacked the consulate and ended up killing Stevens.
A careful review of reports from Libya over the past few years corroborates some parts of that account, but contradicts others: Some Libyan rebel leaders, including at least one who had spent time in a training camp in Afghanistan and who was in that country in September 2001, specifically asked Western countries to send Stinger missiles.
Qaddafi’s intelligence services believed that the rebels were having the missiles smuggled in over the country’s southern border — but they believed the French were supplying the missiles.
There is no evidence that the U.S. supplied the weapons, but it appears they gave their blessing to a secret Qatari effort to ship arms across Libya’s southern border in violation of a United Nations arms embargo. [NOTE: This came out early in the investigsation, later it was determined that the U.S. DID sell/give arms to terrorists, see above article from Front-Page Mag.]
Anti-Qaddafi forces also obtained a significant number of anti-aircraft missiles from the regime’s bunkers early in the conflict. Enough Stinger missiles disappeared from regime stockpiles during the civil war to become a high priority and serious worry for the administration
. (Note that in much of the coverage of Libya, “Stinger” has turned into a catch-all term for any shoulder-mounted anti-aircraft missile.)
To save Eric Holder and the Department of Justice the trouble of reading my e-mail or collecting my phone records, all of the information in this report is gathered from public and open sources, both in the U.S. and overseas, and none of it can be considered classified or sensitive.
Before the war, Qaddafi’s regime in Libya possessed more of these kinds of missiles than did any other country except where they’re produced. On April 7, 2011, General Carter Ham, then recently promoted to head of U.S. Africa Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that “we do estimate that there were as many as 20,000 of these types of weapons in Libya before the conflict began.”

WHICH BRINGS US TO THIS-
Trump Can’t Be Trusted With Our Nuclear Codes
These ten gentlemen were all, at one time or another, tasked with carrying out a president’s order for launching a nuclear strike. Now, like others before them, they’ve joined together to release a letter opposing a Trump presidency.
These are the guy that have lived dreading that moment that they would have to unleash hell on the world, but emerged with their consciences intact.
In the letter, they voiced their concerns.
“He has shown himself time and again to be easily baited and quick to lash out, dismissive of expert consultation and ill-informed of even basic military and international affairs — including, most especially, nuclear weapons,” the letter states. “Donald Trump should not be the nation’s commander-in-chief. He should not be entrusted with the nuclear launch codes. He should not have his finger on the button.”
The officers said the Republican nominee lacks the “composure, judgment, restraint and diplomatic skill” necessary for any commander in chief to possess…
…“…it’s very possible that this person, this pathological liar, who lacks self-control, who knows very little about anything and is angry and aggressive, who might lash out with nuclear weapons if he’s elected, could win. That sort of dawned on everyone. We felt we needed to weigh in.”…
