examiner.com ^ | 1/2/12 | Larry Clifton

Posted on 01/03/2013 9:39:59 AM PST by Baynative

With Benghazi still burning in the rear-view mirror of its wobbly foreign policy, the Obama administration is set to ship the Islamic Brotherhood government of Egypt 10 F16 fighter jets and 200 Abrams tanks and charge it to U.S. taxpayers...

...the Islamic Brotherhood is not a U.S. ally. Nevertheless, the Obama administration is prepared to arm them to the teeth with cutting-edge tanks and planes

Oh Goody... Best idea since arming the Taliban, or Sadam; except I see no logic to this. What supposed enemies of American interests are the Egyptians fighting? I'd say this is clear cut evidence of which side of the battle Barrack Husein is on.

Guess where the tanks will be built.

From: http://www.defenseindustrydaily.com/egypt-847m-request-for-125-m1a1-tanks-03684/

Dec 3/12: General Dynamics Land Systems in Sterling Heights, MI receives a $37.6 million cost-plus-fixed-fee contract modification for services in support of the M1A1 co-production effort at the Egyptian Tank Plant in Cairo, Egypt. Work will be performed in Sterling Heights and Cairo, with an estimated completion date of Feb 28/15.

It is bad enough to arm these Muslim scum, but we give the the technology to assemble the weapons that they will one day use against us.

“the Islamic Brotherhood is not a U.S. ally”

The Islamic Brotherhood is an enemy of America. It is their clearly stated goal to destroy America and kill Christians and Jews.

The Obama Administration is also the enemy of America. They are systematically destroying our once great country. The Obama Administration and the Muslim Brotherhood are working together to destroy America.

Hopefully the SEALs will descend upon the WH and take him into custody. I wonder what REALLY happened to Job Price?

There could not be a more clear act of treason than the arming of the Muslim Brotherhood.. They LIED about not running in Egypt's election and now Morsi has essentially declared himself DICTATOR promoting Sharia Law in this supposed new 'Arab Spring' in Egypt.

Morsi mouthed "Amen" as an Egyptian preacher said "Allah, destroy the Jews".. And now 0bama is supplying Morsi with F-16's and 200 tanks? WTF?

“Didn’t Egypt aleady have M1’s and F16s?”

Late in 1988 the USA and Egypt signed a Memorandum of Understanding allowing Egypt to co-produce up to 555 General Dynamics Land Systems M1A1 MBTs. Under the terms of this MoU some 40 per cent of the tank’s components would be manufactured in Egypt with the remainder being produced in the USA and shipped to Egypt for final assembly

The Abu Zaabal Tank Repair Factory overhauled and repaired tanks and eventually became the producer of Egypt’s main battle tank. The M1A1 Tank Factory (Military Factory 200) outside Cairo in Helwan is one of the largest military manufacturing facilities in this part of the world. Military production is centered on M1A1 military tanks and other armored vehicles. Its American-trained Egyptian workforce is highly skilled and has access to state-of-the-art production and maintenance machinery.

Just add it to the list.

The average American hasn’t a CLUE how much of our tax money Obama has sent down Muslim sh*t holes.

BILLIONS FOR JIHAD! Obamas 2009 Supplemental Appropriations for Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Pandemic Flu was revised and passed by the full committee. It gives billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support Sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies. http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2009/05/1...

Read the summary from David Obeys office that was quietly released last week with nary a word from any media.

$3.6 BILLION, matching the request, to expand and improve capabilities of the Afghan security forces

$400 MILLION, as requested, to build the counterinsurgency capabilities of the Pakistani security forces

AFGHANISTAN: $1.52 BILLION, $86 MILLION above the request WEST BANK AND GAZA: $665 MILLION in bilateral economic, humanitarian, and security assistance for the West Bank and Gaza

JORDAN: $250 million,$250 million above the request, including $100 million for economic and $150 million for security assistance

EGYPT: $360 MILLION, $310 million above the request, including $50 million for economic assistance,$50 million for border security, and $260 million for security assistance

PAKISTAN:$1.9 billion,$591 million above the request

IRAQ:$968 MILLION,$336 million above the request

Oversight: $20 million,$13 million above the request, to expand oversight capacity of the State Department, USAID, and the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan to review programs in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq

Lebanon:$74 million

International Food Assistance:$500 MILLION,$200 million above the request, for PL 480 international food assistance to alleviate suffering during the global economic crisis

REFUGEE ASSISTANCE:$343 MILLION,$50 million above the request, including humanitarian assistance for Gaza.

Funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency programs in the West Bank and Gaza is limited to $119 million (Note: Gaza = Hamas)

Disaster Assistance: $200 MILLION to avert famines and provide life-saving assistance during natural disasters and for internally displaced people around the world, including Somalia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, the Middle East and South Asia

Peacekeeping:$837 MILLION FOR UNITED NATIONS peacekeeping operations, including an expanded mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a new mission in Chad and the Central African Republic

Department of Justice: $17 million, matching the request, for counter-terrorism activities and to provide training and assistance for the Iraqi criminal justice system

OBAMA GIVES YOUR TAX DOLLARS TO REBUILD MUSLIM MOSQUES AROUND THE WORLD! http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/... #

ACCORDING TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WILL GIVE AWAY NEARLY $6 MILLION OF AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS TO RESTORE 63 HISTORIC AND CULTURAL SITES, INCLUDING ISLAMIC MOSQUES AND MINARETS, IN 55 NATIONS. See the State Department document here. http://exchanges.state.gov/media/pdfs/office-...

And THAT’S just the tip of the iceberg.

THIS will blow your mind!! http://gbk.eads.usaidallnet.gov/ They should have 2010 up, but they don’t. That’s where you’ll find Obama’s largesse towards Muslim countries really go off the charts.
