Posted on 12/09/2012 7:59:32 PM PST by Whenifhow
Diplomatic sources told the Sunday Times that the U.S. "bought weapons from the stockpiles of Libya's former dictator Muammar Gaddafi."
The heavy arms include mortars, rocket propelled grenades, anti-tank missiles and the controversial anti-aircraft heat-seeking SA-7 missiles, which are integral to countering Bashar Al-Assad's bombing campaign.
The administration has said that the previously hidden CIA operation in Benghazi involved finding, repurchasing and destroying heavy weaponry looted from Libyan government arsenals, but in October we reported evidence indicating that U.S. agents particularly murdered ambassador Chris Stevens were at least aware of heavy weapons moving from Libya to jihadist Syrian rebels.
From the Times report:
President Barack Obama authorized clandestine CIA support earlier this year and both the US and Britain have had special forces and intelligence officers on the ground for some time. They have helped with logistics and communications, but until now have refused to arm the Free Syrian Army.
The newest report comes days before the U.S. is expected to recognize the newest Syrian coalition (and its Islamic-dominated-command) as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people. The State Department has also indicated it will soon name the opposition's highly effective al-Nusra Front a "terrorist organization" for its ties to Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI).
Both of these stipulations recognition of a unified opposition and creation of distance from extremists are required in order for the Obama administration to openly acknowledge supporting Syrian rebels with heavy weapons.

Obama let those guys die in Libya to try and keep this info secret before the election.
If the roles were reversed, and this was George W Bush, the media would be running programming 24/7 urging the impeachment of Bush.
It’s funny how the axholerods in Oslo don’t mind one of their prize winning boys spreading weapons around. The Nobel morons are hypocrites. “Peace” my arse.
I expect a campaign in Syria very soon. There has been a rise in various types of Gov’t jobs, and NGO jobs being posted for Syria of late.
So, Glenn was right? Weapons smuggling through Turkey into Syria? And Ambassador Stevens died for this?
So Benghazi was covered up because it was an Obama/Petraeus/CIA operation to run guns to Syria, where we were supporting Sunni Wahhabist rebels without telling the American people. Nice.
The Obama administration is also sending heavy weapons to Egypt. The Libyans also received military supplies. Ultimately Egypt, Syria and Libya will form a “United Islamic Republic” patterned on and allied with Iran. No doubt the new leaders will make good use of their American supplied weaponry. Is there anyone in the Obama administration that has a clue or anyone in the press that asks meaningful questions?
And when we say “Syrian rebels” — we mean al Qaeda, right?
You got it!
Obama paying off debt to the Muslim Brotherhood?
Where there is smoke, THERE IS CHOOM GANG...!
Ah, soo....! The dusky body-surfing GayMuzzie partook in a l’il CIA weapon smuggling himself, now did he...?
Gosh, where have we heard that before...? IranContra? Right? Remember how allll the network presstitutes were on that like white on rice FOR YEARS? Crowing and screaming about what a criminal RR was, for trying to get innocent Americans back to the USA?
But when GayMuzzie does it to overthrow whole countries givenover to freaking AL QAEDA, just watch how lib presstitutes will yank out the KNEE PADS and line up on bent knees to get their heads bobbing on ole GayMuzzie...!
The USA MSM has done the impossible by making Alex Jones, Pravda, and Russia Today seem TRUTHFUL BY COMPARISON.
Beam me up....
Mr. Speaker, I suggest you charge the president with treason, you whiny, little bitch.
I heard from a good source that the next targets are JORDAN and OMAN.
That’s what ol’ Bashar has said all along.
When is the US going to admit the CIA sold Libya the C.-4 that brought down Pan Am 103?
Your replies are on target.
Obama covered it up before the election
Beck mentioned the weapons - given to rebels - Al Qaeda
And the purpose was to use the chemical weapons and blame it on Assad - to bring NATO into the regional conflict which would expand to a global conflict.
Syria is Putin’s red line...
This is a globalist agenda
Glenn was right about lots of things and tried to get the message out while on Fox.
