It’s been speculated for some time now that the Obama administration has been covertly supplying terrorists with weapons in various nations, leading many to believe that’s what triggered the assault in Benghazi, Libya. However a recent report from the New York Post has confirmed that along with giving the Taliban its leader back, they’ve been giving them advanced weaponry to attack our own troops with.
On July 25, 2012 a US Army CH-47 Chinook was targeted by Taliban fighters in the Kunar province with a new generation Stinger missile.
The helicopter didn’t explode, and instead the pilot was able to successfully regain control and take the bird down with a hard landing. The assault team inside immediately ran from the Chinook in case it burst into flames, and shortly after the Taliban fighters were targeted by an American gunship and vaporized.
The following day, an explosive ordinance disposal team arrived at the site to investigate the wreckage when they came across unexploded pieces of a missile casing that they knew could have only been from a Stinger missile. Upon further inspection of the craft, they found another piece of the missile that contained an entire serial number and allowed its origin to be traced.
Kenneth R. Timmerman explained that the investigation took a while and many strings were pulled to get the results. However the Stinger had been traced back to the CIA from a lot that it had signed out recently.
“My sources in the US Special Operations community believe the Stinger fired against the Chinook was part of the same lot the CIA turned over to the Qataris in early 2011, weapons Hillary Rodham Clinton’s State Department intended for anti-Khadafy forces in Libya.”
The Qataris apparently turned over between 50 and 60 of the same Stinger missiles to the Taliban in the beginning of 2012 along with 200 SA-24 Igla-S surface-to-air-missiles. These are the same Qataris that Obama just released five high-level terrorists to in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, and who “promised” they would keep them under “house arrest” for at least a year after getting them back.
So now the question is, if the State Department and the CIA both know that the Qataris are supplying the Taliban with advanced weapons so they can attack American forces, how could they ever trust them to properly handle the five terrorists we just gave back to them?
This is another example of the incompetence that occupies the White House. Unfortunately that incompetence is proving to be more dangerous with each move it makes, like with first arming the Taliban, then giving them back five of their leaders.
