The Obama Régime has been running guns and armaments and ammunitions, including including heat-seeking shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles designed to shoot down commercial jetliners, to the Muslim Brotherhood. The American Diplomatic Mission in Libya was trying to buy back man-portable anti-aircraft missiles that the Obama Régime sold or gave to the Muslim Brotherhood and then went “missing.” They were also trying to buy back weapons previously owned by the Gaddafi Régime that spread everywhere after the “revolution.”
Peter Bouckaert, Human Rights Watch emergencies director, told CNN he has seen the same pattern in armories looted elsewhere in Libya, noting that “in every city we arrive, the first thing to disappear are the surface-to-air missiles.” He said such missiles can fetch many thousands of dollars on the black market. “We are talking about some 20,000 surface-to-air missiles in all of Libya, and I’ve seen cars packed with them.” he said.
[…] The United States has spent hundreds of millions of dollars trying to buy them back […]
“The rebels came from all over the western mountains, and they just took what they wanted,” said Riyad, a supervisor of the ruined arsenal’s small contingent of rebel guards.
A report by the UN Support Mission in Libya (PDF) said that Gaddafi had accumulated a large stockpile of MANPADs, and that although thousands were “destroyed” during the 2011 military intervention in Libya, there were “increasing concerns over the looting and likely proliferation of these portable defence systems, as well as munitions and mines, highlighting the potential risk to local and regional stability.”
As soon as islamic organizations outside Libya realized that there were Manpads available, they tried to get them.
When the Obama Régime discovered that thousands of MANPADs had “disappeared” and were “on the loose in Libya” it turned around and stuck a LOT of cash in the CIA outpost-cum-“safehouse” in order to BUY those weapons back. This CIA “safehouse” containing weapons (assault rifles, machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades), a lot of money, and a case files containing the names of the folks who were assisting the USA in the recovery of the missing weapons and of the “looted Libyan arms” was obviously a VERY high-value target. Two SEALs died on its roof.
Ambassador Chris Stevens and the CIA were somehow, some way running (or heavily involved in) this armament pipeline..
one of Stevens’ main missions in Libya was to facilitate the transfer of much of Gadhafi’s military equipment, including the deadly SA-7 [MANPADs] to Islamists and other al Qaeda-affiliated groups fighting the Assad Regime in Syria.
Aaron Klein states that Stevens routinely used our Benghazi consulate (mission) to coordinate the Turkish, Saudi Arabian and Qatari governments’ support for insurgencies throughout the Middle East.
Stevens played a “central role in recruiting Islamic jihadists to fight the Assad Regime in Syria.”
Fox News tracked down a ship carrying arms from Libya to a Turkish port, just 35 miles from the Syrian border. Arms were going to Turkey from Libya. Ambasador Stevens was apparently trying to transfer weapons away from Libyan jihadists to Syrian jihadists.
This is Fast-and-Furious to arm al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood instead of Mexican drug cartels. Ghadaffi was overthrown to create a chaotic, destabilized Libya as the doorway to the Caliphate to get the arms in for distribution to Syria, Yemen, Jordan, Egypt and eventually Saudi Arabia.
UPDATE: HE WAS.
