Anti-Terror Authorities Question Where Money Goes From Group With Special License ...

In July, the Obama State Department approved an extraordinary license for a newly formed U.S.-based organization, the Syrian Support Group, to raise money for Syrian rebels – overriding the administration’s own sanctions and Obama’s Executive Order against such activity.

To some counterterrorism and terror finance authorities in Washington D.C., this extremely rare privilege raises considerable concerns.

This is especially true because two related figures with the organization, Louay Safi and Mazen Asbahi, have previously been tied to terror fundraising efforts by Islamic organizations identified by the U.S. government in federal court as fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood.

When you look at who Ambassodor Stevens was meeting with on page two of the document below you have to ask, Why does our ambassodor meet with a shipping company that controls all the ports in Libya? The Navy doesn’t need him to handle this for them. The State Dept has people to do this for them. Who needs ports to dock a ship full of cargo? You can connect the dots.

Are there any patriots left in the upper levels of our government and military? This is a sad time for this once great country. I can't believe that nobody has the courage to stand up to Bill's frumpy doormat and the bathhouse pole smoker.
