    Aside from Paul jr.'s fanciful musings about becoming President (which will never ever happen) and ridiculous idiocy about Ms. Clinton's leaving office; Rand Paul posed a really freaking bizzare question.

    He asked about Libyan shipments of arms to Turkey.

    Say what?

    What's odd about it? You do realize that arms dealings is a big part of what happened in Benghazi, right? Not to mention he may have access to information much of the public doesn't have.

    Not a very informed thread start, even for you. Arms dealing is a critical issue here.

    Ambassador Stevens Death may Be Result of Arms Deal Gone Bad | Sure News


    Perhaps you should try the cooking or needlepoint forums?

    Because it makes absolutely no sense.

    Turkey is a NATO ally and has access to some of the best weapons available to modern nations.

    Why the fuck would they be purchasing second hand dusty might not work crap from Libya?

    You think the arms were going to the government in Turkey? How quaint.

    Perhaps the "rebels" in Libya were smuggling the weapons to "rebel" elements in Turkey. I don't know from the lack of context you've provided. And considering you clearly don't understand it either, wouldn't it be wiser to do some more research into it then immediately declaring Rand a fool?

    you are more upset that the question was asked than you are about the Secretary of State having no idea about something that is in the news as it pertains to international arms sales....and taking place where our ambassador was murdered.

    Why is that? Becuase she is an Obama cabinet member, it doesnt matter to you?

    Tell me ANYTHING that makes sense about what happened in Benghazi and the Obama's response to the abandonment and murder of a US ambassador.

    Sure...simply discredit the man who brought it up....with no regard to the fact that the Secretary of STate had no idea of reports of arms sales in a very volatile region...where one of our ambassadors was brutally murdered.

    Hey clueless one... http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/06/w...nto-islamist-hands.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1&hp&

    Hardly might not work crap.

    Obama and his gun running habits sure don't fit his liberal rhetoric... or as the saying goes "his mouth sure does write checks his ass can't cash".

    Perhaps you should take your own advice.

    Why did Paula Broadwell think the CIA had taken prisoners in Benghazi?
    CIA denies it detained militants in Benghazi - CBS News
    CIA denies claim from Petraeus' girlfriend that Benghazi annex held Libyan prisoners | The Daily Caller

    I am none of those sources hold a candle to "Surenews".

    I dont recall him saying they were being sold to the Turkey Government.

    Did it make any sense that we were selling arms to the enemy of an ally? (drug cartels/Mexico)

    Come on Jarhead....get real

    Why would a rogue state like Libya supply weapons to a NATO ally like Turkey?

    Paul evidently has as little understanding of foreign policy as his father

    The investigation into the arms deals being brokered by Stevens was a two fold operation. 1) to regain control of arms supplied to Libyan rebels by US and 2) to get these arms to rebels in Syria using Turkey as a third party...

    First off..the article mentions nothing about Turkey.

    Secondly..this is a "kitchen sink" issue.
