Skip to comments.Obama-Clinton's DARK SECRET : Benghazi Stinger Missiles preventing U.S. Air Support for Iraq ?
Posted on 06/13/2014 3:03:26 PM PDT by Patton@Bastogne
Why hasn't President Obama unleashed U.S. Air Power (close-air support) to assist Iraq's democratically-elected government from being conquered by ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) ?
What about Al-Qaeda's GIFT from Obama-Clinton of over 400 Surface-to-Air missiles stolen from Libya's former military arsenal ?
Is Obama afraid of being caught with "blood on his hands" with the death of U.S. Air Force / Army pilots ...
... killed when providing CAS (close-air-support) to prevent Iraq from being conquered by the ISIS ?
One can speculate. Sadly, in this case, facts are harder to come by.
This is unbelievable but unfortunately I believe it.
Obama’s gifts of 20,000 MANPADs, sarin gas,
and SAMs, and more to ISIS (then “the rebels”)
are meant to murder stupid cracker Americans
who ARE not protected like the EXEMPT
.... but later. Later.
How well trained must a person be to hit an F-16 at strafing speed with a Stinger?
Are Stingers Laser/Fly-by-wire/IR or just old “Canon EOS”, AKA: point and shoot?
Obama can only do what the Iranians and Sauds let him do. According to a Saudi Prince, American drones are about to provide air support for Iranian ground forces.
Range is 3 miles, max speed in Mach 2.2.
I think the training needed is probably minimal.
Shoulder held missiles can’t reach B-1s flying at 36,000 ft doing Mach 1.5.
Also, laser guided with low frequency — theoretically, the target does not get warned of a missile lock. So, when you get blown out of the sky, it’s a surprise.
Given the rag tag nature of the invading ‘army’, we could rain on their parade very nicely using nothing but drones.
I don’t think the problem is missing stingers, it is missing testicles.
Or he could want them to take over Iraq. He sure had no problem with them taking over Egypt and Libya. Heck he even wanted to help them in Syria as well. What we got in the WH is a Islamo who wants to be a hero to Islam.
Well there is one sure way to find out —
Put a gaggle of Generals on a plane to Bagdad and see how many of them chicken out at the last minute.
Nero was violin player, I guess Obama is a golfer.
B1s don’t do Cas or drop bombs from Mach 1.5. Nor can the stingers reach above about 10k regardless of the speed.
Isn’t O going golfing and fund-raising this weekend? Who’s in charge at the WH while all of these crises unfold?
Is that constitutional?
Kenyan's foreign policy: "blah, blahh, blaaahhhhh...."
Yes, the Obama/Hillary chickens are coming “home” to roost. First to overseas “homes” and then to the Homeland—to airplanes you and/or your love ones may be flying.
Barry, you were right-—you’re standing with your fellow Muslims as times get tough.
i agree with you to a point.
obama isnt afraid of being caught at anything. he is way past that.
the queer-in-chief is at the “so what are you gonna do about it ?” stage of trying to become a dictator.
Remember the guys McCain met with, the good Syrian rebels, they are about to concur Iraq.
Obama the Sunni that he is, is middle management at best. The Saudis and Qatari’s make the calls. Half baked, half Kenyan, full Marxist, Sunni Obama might serve them Cous-Cous but that’s it.
He’s not incompetent.
If he was incompetent, he’d “get it right” once on a while, just by accident.
He never gets it right; therefore he’s doing it intentionally.
Obama has clearly committed treason. Will he ever be tried for it? No, they just continue to fund his vacations and fund raisers. Pitiful Congress. Democrats should be just as horrified too. Another moment for the Republicans to say “the democrats approved of the weapons going there, therefore they wanted Americans to die” Just say it whether it’s true or not. That’s what they do.
I would be willing to bet the problem is MORE
It is a conundrum for Obama, he can bomb the insurgent and risk being shot down with his own gift missiles to alcaida and assist the assist the Iranians at the same time, or he could help the terrorist he is arming in Syria, eider way you loose
Then Jarrett is cause of all of this. Things are going like she has planned. It’s her fault. She is committing treason too.
The U.S.just shipped some Brand new F-16I’s to Iraq.We had better have those planes on the target list along with the other sophisticated weaponry we left them.
It’s strange how fast all of this went down the minute the Taliban members were released and they got the deserter out of there. Why then? Did they know this was going to happen? Is that why they had to get Bergdahl out of there so quickly? Strange.
Of course not.
Becaue he wants Iraq's democratically-elected government to be conquered by ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant).
Do we have any tactical nuclear tipped cruise missles left?
Trust me - that’s not the reason. We never sell a weapon we cannot defeat - especially in that area of the world.
So.. what’s the reason?
Yes of course.
Disappointing we don’t have countermeasures against our own stuff...
Ubama is building a caliphate
I’m willing to believe it as well, but we may never know for sure.
Dumping Mubarak and bankrolling the MB in Egypt should have been America's REALLY BIG CLUE.
Built it. Baghdad is apparently going to lay down as ISIS/L approaches.
As I was saying, as a Texan, this removes the halt in the momentum of eradication like when we used to have to ask Comanche? Apache? Cherokee? 150 years ago.
And I’m going to study: just how constructed is this Sunni/Shia schism?? Who built THAT?
I don’t think so. A column of 50 Toyota pickups ambling down a road is the kind of target every military person dreams of. There’s no armor on those pickups. Honestly, a kid with a brick could cause some serious damage from about thirty feet.
I had that same thought. The Iraq army obvious doesn’t care to fight. Just one M2 Bradley with 25mm chain gun should be able to shred a column like that.
There’s absolutely no doubt whatsoever, at least to me, that this guys #1 priority is to radical Islam. No doubt whatsoever. I sort of got that impression when on his very first day in office Jan. 20th 2009, the very first thing he did was run to the phone and try to close Gitmo. Above EVERYTHING else, freeing terrorists were his #1 priority. Then later on his fanatical insistence that Khalid Sheik Mohammed be tried in New york city as a US citizen with full constitutional rights. Why? So he has a better chance at freedom. This guy needs to go ASAP and Democrats know it and Republicans know it, but because all they do is worry about their own selfish asses, none of them do anything, so as a result this clown continues to run amok on a daily basis. We got the enemy in the White house and it’s all on the asses of these clowns in Congress who do absolute shet about it!
Recall the Cairo speech.
And the hits just keep on coming!
N.B.: “The battery of a Stinger lasts for four or five years.”
And where did these ragheads get billions of dollars worth of weapons and all the other resources needed to wage an all-out war?
And why has Obama been smiling so much lately?
