Highly sensitive U.S. military equipment stored in Libya was stolen over the summer by groups likely aligned and working with terrorist organizations, State Department sources told Fox News -- in raids that contributed to the decision to pull Special Forces personnel from the country.
The stolen equipment had been used by U.S. Special Forces stationed in the country. Lost in the raids in late July and early August were dozens of M4 rifles, night-vision technology and lasers used as aiming devices that are mounted on guns and can only be seen with night-vision equipment.
"This stuff is how we win wars. The enemy doesn't have that," one source said.

How come nothing good ever happens to US? It's weird, it just seems like we have really, really bad luck. Hmm
Its a red herring designed to lead away from the real reason these SF guys were pulled out of Libya. They were getting close to nailing the Benghazi attackers.
I wonder if Obamugabe will let the MB know when and how these SF guys are leaving, i.e., set them up like he did with the guys who were on the UBL mission.
Probably so !
It seems that the press can always find these guys for a news commentary , but the military , not so much .
Have you ever heard of Zippey ever getting responsibility / resitution action against any Muslim attrocity ?
Nope ,.. me neither !
A lot of bluster , yes ,..a lot of talk , but never any substantive action !
Is this just a leak to soften the blow when the real “stolen” stuff is identified? => So then the media will dutifully follow standard operating procedure and label it all “old news”.
You can see right through the propaganda now...it’s old hat.
I spoke too soon - I just heard Russia stopped Barack Obama from starting Armageddon - well, that’s pretty cool
There were gifted by us to be used against us...There must be something other than a woodchuck in the woodpile...
Americans need to wake up and realize once and for all that all this "incompetence" is in reality what obozo and his gang are deliberately doing to destroy our republic.
Why am I thinking this stuff was stolen from Benghazi and not Tripoli. In the CIA compound were not one but two warehouses full of arms on their way to Syria. If they are used against airliners Benghazi will be in the news again
Sure. Why would we be training the Libyan military on equipment they wouldn’t have? Makes no sense.
In respect to Coincidence, when it comes to spooks, spys , and criminals , there is no such thing as coincidence .
Exactly, it was not stolen it was given and that is why 4 Americans were murdered in Benghazi.
So who helped Al Qaeda murder them and why does the Obama admin not want the truth told?
O knew they were going to use these weapons, God, this admin is as evil as you can find.
Just another form of “redistribution.”
Jus’ workplace accident
Ok we prepare for a mission in country. We run through the drills until dark. We then leave all of our gear in a closet. We call the local warlord and ask him to watch our stuff while we head to the holiday inn. Do we change before we leave in a locker room like top gun with mirrors and towels.
Right I am sure that’s the truth.
certainly not stolen from Special Forces.
how about more detail on how this stuff went missing?? stolen from Consulates or the Embassy?? - was this some of the equipment given by Obama to aid the revolt and kill Gaddafi?? - how did it happen??
Stolen? I’d bet they were given away or sold.
Stolen. Is that what they call that? When you let somebody take something?
