Jihadists in Egypt's lawless Sinai Peninsula are using U.S. weapons to carry out attacks against the temporary government in the wake of the military's ouster of President Mohammed Morsi, according to the embattled nation's Interior Ministry.

I hear you! Our biggest problem is that some of our own rinos went along with this treasonous insane plan to arm these Islamist terrorists. Too many politicians are doing the bidding of the money men in Saudi Arabia. I really can’t think of another reason why we are in this mess. We will never get to truth on Benghazi because McCain, Boehner and other various rinos on intel committees went along with it. The whole government is out of control IMHO.
My guess is that Obama is truly on the side of these animals and the gOP rinos went along because either they bought the ‘strategic’ lies & folly or they are being blackmailed. Some of these old bull rinos at least used to be decent on foreign policy, but now they even suck at that!!
Perhaps AQ’s Radar al-Riley was able to round up a firing mechanism...
Good idea but way beyond my pay grade. I sure hope somebody does it!
DOD had ‘no comment’. Dempsy will make sure the info never sees the light of day.
An 18-year-old Islamo, named Ishfal blew himself up launching a hell fire missile and then appeared before Allah.
He said, Oh, Allah, I did your bidding, but I have a request. Since Im only 18 and spent all my time in terrorist training school, I never was with a woman. So, instead of 72 virgins, can I have 72 prostitutes?
Allah regarded him for a moment, then replied, Actually, Ishfal, the 72 virgins are here in heaven because people like you murdered them before they could experience the pleasure of sex. So youre here to service them. Since theyre virgins, theyre quite sexually hungry; and frankly, youll be on a constant and very exhausting duty.
The bomber responded, Well, I guess I can live with that. How hard can it be to keep 72 women satisfied for all eternity?
Allah replied quizzing, Who told you they were women?
That got downrange in a hurry!
Excellent!! Can I steal it to post on Twitter?
Congress had done nothing to stop this obscenity. They just exempted their precious little staffers from ObamaCare so that the little darlings didn't have to suffer trauma to their pay checks. But nurses at Walter Reed and Air Force GS-5s paid next to nothing who work on hot flight lines performing maintenance have 20% of their paychecks stolen from them.
I completely AGREE!!!!!!I let my emotions go on the phone today on one of the " express your opinion" answering machines at Boehner's office... won't do any good but it felt good letting it all out!
Best guess now is it came out of the Egyptian militaries stocks, but that does not mean it did not come from Libya. Could have been taken to Libya by the Brothers. The US also used a lot of them during the Libyan war/rebellion, but they were Hellfire II’s fired from Apache Helicopters.
Who told you they were women?
Outstanding, sir...just outstanding!
Seriously though, I think the military loses them all the time. I distinctly recall hearing about a shipping container full (with gps and fulltime satellite tracking feed too!) getting offloaded at the end of the runway in Dover (apparently they do that for weight and balance compliance) and sitting there along with some other friendly containers for a few weeks. In appeared as an anomaly in the database when checking for data quality and then someone unnamed wrote a query and found the history of location updates...
I don’t know who owns the rights.
Hey gaijin, this is what I asked you the other night.
“Why in the world doesnt SOMEONE IMPEACH this PRESIDENT!!!!”
No balls to do so.
I hear they were buying them from Ambassador Stevens. Any truth to that? Jennifer Griffin (?), newswoman, was saying something along the line that they were trying to regain control of a huge number of missiles.
Good thing McStupid and his girlfriend are over there fixing things.
I remember that article. The other possibility,like someone else said , is that this is stock that we supplied Egypt before the overthrow of Morsi. Only way to track it down is to get serial numbers, etc. hopefully someone is working on it. I may go read some of the English language Egypt papers for more info. If I find something will ping you.
Thank you, Penelope. I’ll do the same in your direction. IIRC, the Seals were actually CIA, but were ex-Seals, and their mission was tracking those missiles.
