Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton Supplied Stinger Missiles that Taliban Used to Attack US Chopper

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 Qatars 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 isnt only giving the Taliban back its commanders its 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 Clintons 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 IranIraq 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.
Taliban go to Qatar.
Stingers go to Qatar.
ISIS uses Stingers to shoot down aircraft in Iraq
How soon before one of these MANPADS are lurking at the end of Boston Logan and JFK..?
Too bad we didn’t let them take over our ports post 9/11/01, eh?
How easy is it to get from Mexico to Texas?
No wonder Egypt wants Obama and Hillary on criminal charges.
Was that Qatar or Dubai?
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.
We’ve spread stinger missiles far and wide for a long time. They’re used by some 30 nations.
Our friends the Qataris.
Yet she’ll be president of the United States two and a half years from now.
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.
Take yer pick sweetie!
Seems like Rev Wright’s exhortations are coming to fruition.
Nations using variations of the Stinger Missile.
Looks like Turkey and Germany make them.
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.
in BOS they are likely there already. We are getting all of the MS13 a holes from central America after all. Mini me (Doovalue Patrick) is Bammy’s best buddy.
by all appearances Qatar is a distribution center for their parent company - Obama, Inc.
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 when is Congress going to impeach Obama for the latest outrage?
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.
Isn’t it ironic that they supply our enemies with weapons, while attempting to relieve the American citizenry of theirs?
If it happens, they will blame it on a short circuit in the center fuel tank.... again.
Ironic? No, it's tactical. Think: "revolution of the proletariat."
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.
It's sad that so many people cannot figure out what is so obvious.
Was one of these stingers used to kill the the SEALs who raided bin Laden’s compound? The largest mass casualty in SEAL history?
Isn’t this the deal that Chris Stevens was involved in Benghazi??
Yes...this was after Obama NAMED ALL THOSE SEALS....they had a TARGET on their heads after that!! Obama WANTED them dead.
“What difference DOES IT MAKE?”
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.
Bingo!! Why the HELL haven’t Congress been able to talk to any of the witnesses???
Nothing would surprise me, Beaubo, with this administration.
If this idiotic administration uses our air force to fly missions in Iraq...and one of them goes down because of a stinger...this president and half of his admins should be hung for treason.
This is a lawless president and presidency, ThomasMore. I’ll not be surprised in there is a serious head wound to the lawless one.
Honestly, I am at a loss for words these days.
What can I say. And if I say it, “What difference does it make”?
The lawless one?
Can it be? What says it can’t be?
