Actually, no. Stevens was running guns, ManPADS, and other light infantry weapons from Libya, through Turkey, and into Syria, where a LOT more people have died than in Fast & Furious.
That's the big story here, because not only was Zero trying to keep the meme alive that "Al Quaida is dead; Libya is progressing toward being a normal country," he was trying to keep the news from coming out that he is quite deliberately keeping AQ alive and kicking, as they surround Israel with jihadis armed to the teeth with American weapons.
Arming rebels fighting Assad, who is Iran’s closest ally, is a defensible policy, regardless of who those rebels are.
We are the people, after all, who allied ourselves with the USSR to fight a greater evil.
Not saying it’s the right policy, just that there are legitimate arguments for it.
