Hillary Clinton Supplied Stinger Missiles that Taliban Used to Attack US Chopper
Frontpage ^ | June 8, 2014 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 06/16/2014 6:52:01 PM PDT by xzins

Obama Inc. keeps insisting that Qatar could be trusted when it was already concluded by the 9/11 Commission that the Islamist tyranny had ties to the attack on the United States.

Since then Qatar has become so out of control in its backing of Jihadists that it has been disavowed by Saudi Arabia and the UAE, but that just made Obama embrace it even harder.

Consider this. Obama is hugging a regime that the Saudis think is too extreme. That’s how bad things are. This latest revelation is no surprise at all.

The New York Times had already let slip that even Obama Inc. was uncomfortable with whom the Qataris were arming.

Within weeks of endorsing Qatar’s plan to send weapons there in spring 2011, the White House began receiving reports that they were going to Islamic militant groups. They were “more antidemocratic, more hard-line, closer to an extreme version of Islam” than the main rebel alliance in Libya, said a former Defense Department official.

It’s called plausible deniability. Now we know what was being denied.

The Obama administration isn’t only giving the Taliban back its commanders — it’s giving them weapons.

Miliary records and sources reveal that on July 25, 2012, Taliban fighters in Kunar province successfully targeted a US Army CH-47 helicopter with a new generation Stinger missile.

The next day, an explosive ordnance disposal team arrived to pick through the wreckage and found unexploded pieces of a missile casing that could only belong to a Stinger missile.

Lodged in the right nacelle, they found one fragment that contained an entire serial number.

My sources in the US Special Operations community believe the Stinger fired against the Chinook was part of the same lot the CIA turned over to the ­Qataris in early 2011, weapons Hillary Rodham Clinton’s State Department intended for anti-Khadafy forces in Libya.

They believe the Qataris delivered between 50 and 60 of those same Stingers to the Taliban in early 2012, and an additional 200 SA-24 Igla-S surface-to-air missiles.

Qatar now is expected to hold five Taliban commanders released from Guantanamo for a year before allowing them to go to Afghanistan.

Just to give you a sense of Kenneth Timmerman’s qualifications for writing about the subject…

In the early 1980s, Timmerman became a Middle East correspondent for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and developed an expertise in the Middle East and the arms trade.

From 1985 to 1987, Timmerman was a correspondent for Defense and Armament Newsweek and Military Technology, covering the Iran–Iraq War and the arms industry in the Middle East.

From 1987 to 1993, Timmerman published the Middle East Defense News and was international correspondent for Defense Electronics.

In 1991, Timmerman published The Death Lobby: How the West Armed Iraq after the Gulf War. Timmerman advised the United Nations Special Commission for the Disarmament of Iraq on the location of weapons plants.

In 1998, he wrote a piece on Osama Bin Laden and his training camps in Afghanistan just before Al-Qaeda attacked two US embassies in Africa.

Clinton and Obama must be PLEASED along with the
EXEMPT treasonous Congress that al Qaeda can now,
with their extra special help and assistance,
SHOOT CIVILIAN AIRCRAFT OUT OF THE SKY.

Thank you, EXEMPT US Congress for allowing this. [/s]

You’re right, Dubai. My mistake.

Why we would trust either of them is beyond me, though.

People reading this thread should see “America” coming out on July 4th, and consider this question:

If you were Prez and wanted to cripple the USA and banish it’s prestige and influence overseas...

WHAT THINGS WOULD YOU DO DIFFERENTLY FROM OBAMA...?

2DV, what’s happening in Iraq is no accident. Sunni Terrorists in Syria, supplied for a few years now by the USA, accidentally band together to attack Iraq, and the Sunnis in Iraq lay down arms and turn over tanks, bradleys, and all kinds of war materiel.

We’re told they’re craven Sunnis because Maliki a Shi’ite cut out their leadership. It seems more likely that they’re given the Shi’ite leader of Iraq a big middle finger.

Hillary! is either:
  1. Dumb enough to offer weapons to Muzzies, believing what they say,
  2. Just doesn't care because she's got an agenda, or
  3. Complicit.

Take yer pick sweetie!

When they shoot down a fully loaded airliner, killing hundreds, how easy will it be to impose martial law? Very easy.

The U.S. first needs to indict, try, convict, sentence, and execute sentence on these traitors. Egyptians can stand in line like everyone else waiting to piss on their bodies.

"Egypt may have a better chance of getting an indictment through the International Court."

If true, that statement is really a overwhelmingly sad indictment of how low the DemonicRats have sunk this once great nation.

So the other thread on the stingers which was locked for some unknown reason as it had a legit link to Fox news. It told that Isis got some 400,000 Items from two weapons depots.
I just wanted to say that any real president would have blown those depots up the moment Isis stepped in the door. It is obvious that this administration wanted this very thing to happen.

I agree that my excerpt was more informative. We’re allowed to have 300 words from the article for a legitimate excerpt. Some just slice off the first sentence and post. I think that’s uninformative and just a little bit lazy.

But Hillary couldn’t have known they’d use them against us, right? I mean, really! She had their word that they were really our friends...right?

Well, folks, if this doesn’t make the hair on the back of your neck and arms stand up, then you’ve been desensitized by too many shock & awe sci-fi movies. The next thing coming to America will probably be a series of attacks all at once with any number of toys we’ve provided to them.

In my mind, Benghazi was at the beginning of this program that gives stingers to terrorists. I also think these Stingers (and other weapons) are why they are so desperate to kill any questions about Benghazi.
