It is my belief that the “What Difference Does It Make?” Hillary! card is played way Way WAY! too often... I might have used it once, within a few days of its utterance...

However, that said, it is VERY APROPOS here!

In Benghazi you get one Hellfire free with every stinger system under the Barry Brotherhood Badda-Boom program.

Hell-fire missle. Yuhhuh.
Kinda explains the big alert across kamikaze land too. Team jihad made payment and got delivery. if those are good photos, they should make interesting discussion topics @ the next town meeting with congresscritter d’jour.

That is, if one of Allah’s smelliest decideds to point one of those things say... on a tarmac.

Hand enough, yet?

So now Obama’s arming of al Qaeda extends to US Hellfire
missiles against freed people.

Was it not enough the US taxpayers were supporting slavery
and crucifixion under the undocumented First Moslem?

Have the American people EVER been so ashamed of their
government?

Have the American people EVER been so ashamed
of their own Pentagon helping al Qaeda
after the 911 Atrocities?

Have the American people EVER been so ashamed of NSA
for ignoring multiple warnings before the Boston Atrocity?

This is the likely real reason for the embassies closing. It would not be a ‘phony scandal’ if US hellfire missiles go raining down on our own embassies across the Middle East.

No wonder all the Intel Committee members are on TV! Many of them know we have been sending arms to these animals! Meanwhile..Obama is golfing and living it up!! No responsibilities.

And now, thanks to Obama and the other morons that went along with this insane traitorous plan, we are likely being blackmailed now by the very people that killed over 3000 of our citizens on 9-11-01!

Wonder what other weapons they have now compliments of the US? The WMDS from Iraq?

It was probably 0bama who fired it, ANGRY, SPITEFUL and VENGEFUL that Hillary's buddy Morsi got the boot! 0bama can be such an ANGRY, SPITEFUL, SPOILED only child.

And if Hillary/Obama were involved in funneling these Hellfires to the Jihadists, IT'S TIME TO SERIOUSLY TALK IMPEACHMENT. Isn't this a CLASSIFIED weapons system???

Obama was funding and arming the Egyptian Morsi government and Muslim Brotherhood when Egypt’s military put its foot down and removed Morsi. Good for them. Obama must be impeached and removed. He is a danger to peace and to America.

Remember that helo that crashed during the Bin Ladin mission?

Of course, the Islamic jarheads have to carry the fuselage in order to launch the missile.

Note: This is not a Hellfire, but where there's a will (and a pickup truck), there's a way.

What would be 'classified' about it. The missile gets tons of press and photo ops. Perhaps 'restricted' to allies, it's been around for over 30 years.

“How did they launch the Hellfire?...”



“Hey, Ishfal, I want you to help me kill Americans.”

“Alahu akbar, yes, dead Americans is good. What can I do?”

“Well, it’s simple Ishfal, take this hammer and nail...”

“Yes, Muhamid. But, what can I do with a nail and hammer to kill Americans.”

“Listen you unholy heap of camel dung, I will tell you...but you must listen if you want to kill many Americans.”

“Yes, Muhamid...”

“Now, Ishfal, take the sharp point of the nail and and place it on...see that shiny little piece of metal right there?”

“yes, Muhamid, I see it...”

“Take the sharp point of the nail and place it on the shiny piece of metal. Then, take your hammer and drive the nail into the shiny little piece of metal. Remember when you helped your build the goat pen. You have to hit the nail very hard, praise Allah, and you will kill many Americans.”

“Like this Muhamid...?

“NO, NO, Ishfal...not yet...wait, wait until I am gone...uh...I have to go see what kind of goat stew we will be having tonight. Wait until I am around the corner of the building.”

“OK, Muhamid.”

“Allah will be proud of you Ishfal. Alahu akbar!”

“Alahu akbar, Muhamid. Return quickly as I am hungry, and would like to know what kind of goat stew we will have tonight.”

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!!

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 I’m 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 you’re here to service them. Since they’re virgins, they’re quite sexually hungry; and frankly, you’ll 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?”

The F designation means it was a Hellfire I not a Hellfire II. It was one of the last Hellfire I types that was made. Probably 1990-1992. Was good against reactive armor and had tandem warheads.

Furlough our Dept of Defense civilians, but give away Billions to the Muslim Brotherhood.

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.

Nice job.
