Ambassador Stevenís blood is on Obamaís hands

US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens' fate was determined by Barack Obama.

Obama set these events into motion when he decided Moammar Gaddfi had to go. Gaddafi's overthrow resulted in the disappearance of countless weapons, including RPG's and stingers.

Hundreds of surface-to-air missiles have gone missing from Libyan arms depots since the fall of the Gaddafi regime, according to reports.

Around 480 Russian SA-24 man-portable missiles, along with SA-7s and SA-9s, were said to be missing from a commercial storage unit in Tripoli after being moved from the headquarters of Khamis al-Gaddafi’s 32nd Brigade in the early stages of the conflict.

Around 12,000 land mines were also said to have gone missing, and there are fears that the weapons could be used to arm al-Qaida in Africa or the Gaddafi regime in exile.

In April there were reports that pickup trucks had transported SAM-7s, machine guns and RPGS from Libya to Chad and Niger to the South en route to Al-Qaida fighters in Mali.

“The problem is pretty huge. There are around 20,000 surface-to-air missiles in Libya and a hell of a lot of them are missing,” Peter Bouckaert, Human Rights Watch’s emergencies director told The Independent.

And Al Qaida was grateful for that:

A leading member of an al Qaeda-affiliated terror group indicated the organization may have acquired some of the thousands of powerful weapons that went missing in the chaos of the Libyan uprising, stoking long-held fears of Western officials.

“We have been one of the main beneficiaries of the revolutions in the Arab world,” Mokhtar Belmokhtar, a leader of the north Africa-based al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb [AQIM], told the Mauritanian news agency ANI Wednesday. “As for our benefiting from the [Libyan] weapons, this is a natural thing in these kinds of circumstances.”

The claim comes just days after the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution calling on Libya and its neighbors to secure the loose weapons — including some 20,000 man-portable surface-to-air missiles — before they could fall into the hands of terrorists. The resolution specifically mentioned AQIM as a dangerous potential beneficiary.

So many weapons were procured by Al Qaida that is was able to take much of Mali:

Meanwhile, the fall of Gaddafi caused his arms dumps to be thrown open, flooding Libya with illegal weapons. Unsurprisingly, extremists from across the region seized their opportunity. “Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb,” the North African branch of bin Laden’s terror network, plundered this new source of weapons, becoming so well armed that it was able to capture 300,000 square miles of Mali earlier this year, in concert with local allies.

Libyan weapons have turned up as far away as Nigeria, flowing into the hands of Boko Haram, one of the most dangerous extremist groups in Africa. Israel believes that Libyan guns have even been smuggled into the Gaza Strip. As an unintended consequence of Gaddafi’s downfall, radicals from Algeria to Nigeria - and from Mali to the Sinai Peninsula - have become better armed and more dangerous.

There were warning signs of the impending attack. al-Zawahiri promised retaliation for the loss of his lieutenant:

What's the democrat mantra?
Osama is dead and GM is alive.

What did the embassy burners chant?
We are all Osama.

Would anyone outside the press and this administration be surprised if a GM Plant was unexpectedly attacked?

Mark levin is on a roll tonight. He referenced information that reportedly is coming from a European source that Ambassador Stevens was RAPED before he was killed. He mentioned it several times. WTF? This entire foreign policy disaster should be Obama’s undoing. The administration and the media in seditious collusion. God help us.

Zero and the media are pro-sodomy. They force the Vice on our US troops now and force our men to take “Pride” in it, so why should the media or zero mention the sodomy? There is nothing “wrong” with it in their eyes.

The muslim ethics of pro-sodomy (allah) are “in” in this progressive administration-—and Christian Ethics (God) are being eliminated. It is a “total transformation” what zero promised. And this promotion of sodomy in kindergarten is now in American public schools (Jerry Brown)—to normalize the behavior among the boys, like in Afghanistan where they have harems of boys and pederasty is their recreation. Women are hated in the muslim countries.
