    A recent secret White House meeting revealed that an estimated 20,000 portable, heat-seeking missiles appear to have vanished from an Army warehouse in Libya.

    The new revelations stoke ongoing fears that such weapons, which are light, relatively easy to use and have the capacity to take down a commercial airplane, could end up in the wrong hands as the Libyan war that ousted Muammar Qaddafi winds down.

    “Matching up a terrorist with a shoulder-fired missile, that's our worst nightmare,” Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., told ABCNews.com.

    International Airline business suffered massive loss after 9/11 attacks.

    20,000 heat-seeking missiles missing is enough to bring back 9/11 scare for airline business.

    Obama and his allies fired 120 Tomahawk cruise missiles into Libya on March 17, 2011.

    It is all Obama's fault.

    As you shall sow so shall you reap.

    How can Obama be faulted for the Russian government selling armaments?

    Was he in on the deal in a way that I am unaware of, or something?

    He stuck his nose where it didn't belong. He's not responsible for the Russians' activities. He's responsible for the war.

    Coming soon, no fly zones over all of Africa and Southeast Asia, and the entire Mediteranean basin.
    Gosh and golly gee, Susan Sarandon would have to row herself from France into Italy. There is a God!

    Can't you just see the headline "Airplane Crashes While Landing In St Maarten"?
    All a jihadi would have to do is walk out on the beach right there under the runway approach as the plane approaches, fire the missile, jump in the car and dissappear into the island's 80,000 people. The island only has one traffic light and one stop sign, and the drivers are insane. It would be impossible for any police prevention to arrive in a timely manner.
    Too many airport approaches in the Carribean are unprotected in that same manner.

    The missiles can hit planes at 11,000 feet.

    They may target cars of so-called important people because cars release heat.
