OBAMA ADMIN MAY BE ARMING SYRIAN REBELS, DESPITE DENIALS
Breitbart ^ | October 27,2012 | Awr Hawkins

Posted on 10/27/2012 5:57:42 PM PDT by penelopesire

A source inside of Russia claims Syrian militants are firing American-made surface-to-air missiles at Bashar al-Assad's warplanes. Russia has supplied many of those warplanes, so they see the situation as American weapons shooting down Russian planes. Russian Gen. Nikolai Makarov said: "We have reliable information that Syrian militants have foreign portable anti-aircraft missile systems, including those made in the USA... it should be cleared up who delivered them." Prior to Makarov's comments, there had been "unconfirmed reports" of Syrian rebels using shoulder-mounted missiles. This came to light when Syrian rebels claimed to have shot down a fighter jet near the Iraq border in August. Some have suspected the missiles could be U.S. Stingers.  However, there is extant footage of Syrian opposition fighters using old Soviet SA-7 heat-seeking missiles to shoot at aircraft as well. Thus the bottom line is that confusion reigns, and Russia appears to be using the confusion to try to ascertain exactly where the U.S. stands.

Catherine Herridge reported on Hucklbee show tonight that she believes and has strings of evidence that point to Benghazi being a gun running operation 'of some kind'.

I truly believe this is what Obama is hiding. Too many things are pointing this way to be ignored!!

I am very uncomfortable giving moslems weapons. I don’t care whether 0bama is allowing it or Romney. Those weapons will eventually be turned against Israel.

It would appear that Obama is trying to turn the Middle East into an absolute firestorm.

Perhaps some of them, but the Russians claim some of these are ‘made in US ‘ weapons. Obama is running guns through Libya to Syrian Islamist radicals. I have seen several reports the last few weeks of intercepts of weapons on boats coming from Libya too. Turkey is in on it and remember who Stevens was meeting with that night before the shooting started. Obama did not want our military going in, because he knew the weapons the jihadists were using were ‘made in the us’ too and they are capable of shooting our planes out of the air. He also has kept the FBI out of there for the same reasons. He doesn’t want them finding evidence of the terrorists using our weapons to kill our ambassador and those seal team heros!

A mysterious Libyan ship — reportedly carrying weapons and bound for Syrian rebels — may have some link to the Sept. 11 terror attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Fox News has learned. 

Through shipping records, Fox News has confirmed that the Libyan-flagged vessel Al Entisar, which means “The Victory,” was received in the Turkish port of Iskenderun — 35 miles from the Syrian border — on Sept. 6, just five days before Ambassador Chris Stevens, information management officer Sean Smith and former Navy Seals Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed during an extended assault by more than 100 Islamist militants. 

On the night of Sept. 11, in what would become his last known public meeting, Stevens met with the Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin, and escorted him out of the consulate front gate one hour before the assault began at approximately 9:35 p.m. local time. 

Although what was discussed at the meeting is not public, a source told Fox News that Stevens was in Benghazi to negotiate a weapons transfer, an effort to get SA-7 missiles out of the hands of Libya-based extremists.

And although the negotiation said to have taken place may have had nothing to do with the attack on the consulate later that night or the Libyan mystery ship, it could explain why Stevens was travelling in such a volatile region on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Russia appears to be using the confusion to try to ascertain exactly where the U.S. stands.

I sure hope that they tell me when they figure it out.

If jihadists have surface-to-air missiles then it is better for us that they be Stingers (I won’t say why)

The best situation is where they have nothing but sticks as weapons.

Only an evil idiot would arm these animals.

I don’t believe he was trying to get the weapons out of the hands of Libyan jihadists. That is BS!! They are all the same people for cryin out loud!! Libyan terrorists are helping the Syrian terrorists in the whole miserable conflict in Syria. The whole thing is a cluster you know what and this is Obama’s dangerous policy setting the whole middle east on fire.

No.

A mysterious Libyan ship — reportedly carrying weapons and bound for Syrian rebels — may have some link to the Sept. 11 terror attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Fox News has learned. 

If you look at page two of the ambassador’s itinerary it states he was meeting with a shipping company. This company handles all the ports in the country. I stated a few nights ago who is he arranging a port for ?

My understanding is that the sides line up like this:

Syrian Government - Russia, Iran, various groups in Lebanon

Syrian Rebels - USA, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar

Your guess is as good as mine as to why anyone is supporting either side. Religion, tribal, economic, old allies?

They wanted to hide and cover up the fact that they were running arms to Libya and Syria.

You would think that after the disastrous results in Eqypt, Tunasia and other ‘Arab spring’ countries were the Islamists,jihadists and Muslim Brotherhood have taken over, that we would stop all help. But no...Obama just keeps going and the only explanation is that he wants these radicals to take over the whole middle east. Saudis, UAE and Qatar want the same thing...a caliphate. They think they will survive but their heads will be on a jihadist pike one day too. The whole thing is insane.
