Fallen into hell! They were given to them by Obama, actually his worshipers but on his orders.

They rape an Ambassador and kill some heroes
IN EXCHANGE for the missiles.

They swap a deserter IN EXCHANGE for 5 Generals.

Is anyone, anywhere, in DC or VA
in possession of a brain amongst them?

That is how I feel about it. I think enough American blood has been shed for nothing. Enough orphans have been made, enough widows have been made in order that politicians can make a few bucks. But that is only my feelings. From the news reports, others feel differently.

Given Obama’s behavior over Syria, seizing them is good cover for giving them to others in the neighborhood.

Story says the islamists have overrun two large Iraqi weapon depots, captured over 400,000 items including missles, AK47s, trucks etc. That seems to be the source(s) they’re talking about.

“From the news reports, others feel differently.”

It’s so easy when they and theirs are far from Harm’s way.

Let them talk themselves to death. They are useless. I don’t watch them anymore. I want to keep my TV for other things.

Correction:

“have fallen” is incorrect

“were given to” is correct.

This was as planned as giving our Drones to the enemy.
This was as planed as arming Al Qaeda in Syria through Benghazi.

I have no doubt that well armed Islamists are part of the ‘civilian force that is just as powerful, just as well funded as our military.’

Yes, he meant — in part — a Sharia civilian force.

It’s part of his climate change plan. Less air travel is good for the environment.

I had Obama figured out in Jan 2008 when people were too busy saying “Awww look a black guy, let’s elect him even though he is totally unqualified and is buddies with questionable people” I had this guy figured out from day 1, a Marxist Commie Muslim who wants a Caliphate like the majority of Muslims want.he is getting what he wants..and so is the left

Those missiles are for use in Syria. They will not be required in large numbers in Iraq.

Syrian pilots are in jeopardy

Fallen into their hands... ?

Hell we’ve been arming these guys when they were on the Syrian side of the border with the understanding they’d attack Assad. But then they decided we were weaker and sacked Iraq instead.

They probably didn’t even have to pay us for them.....

It’s not “likely” that al-qaeda has recently come into new production Stingers , its 100% certain that they have stingers.

Exploded Stinger parts have been found in helicopters shot down in Afghanistan .

One of the fragments had a complete serial number that identified it a Stinger supplied by the State Dept during the leadership of Sec of State Hillary Clinton

This is the legacy of Benghazi and what Amb Stevens died for

Wouldn't it be ironic if Air Farce One was taken out by one of the very MANPADs that Barry handed over at Benghazi?

And just were did everyone think all the stockpiles in Libya go?

What were there, something like 80,000 or so? I can’t remember the number. Intel on the item was pretty good. All of a version about two models ago or something like that.

if obama didn’t supply them the missles ... the saudis or qatar did. Remember qatar and obama ... they made the trade for the five tally-bunny generals for one deserter.
