    The US Finally Admits To Sending Heavy Weapons From Libya To Syrian Rebels​

    Diplomatic sources told the Sunday Times that the U.S. "bought weapons from the stockpiles of Libya's former dictator Muammar Gaddafi."

    The heavy arms include mortars, rocket propelled grenades, anti-tank missiles and the controversial anti-aircraft heat-seeking SA-7 missiles, which are integral to countering Bashar Al-Assad's bombing campaign.

    The administration has said that the previously hidden CIA operation in Benghazi involved finding, repurchasing and destroying heavy weaponry looted from Libyan government arsenals, but in October we reported evidence indicating that U.S. agents — particularly murdered ambassador Chris Stevens — were at least aware of heavy weapons moving from Libya to jihadist Syrian rebels.

    From the Times report:

    President Barack Obama authorized clandestine CIA support earlier this year and both the US and Britain have had special forces and intelligence officers on the ground for some time. They have helped with logistics and communications, but until now have refused to arm the Free Syrian Army.

    SNIP

    The newest report comes days before the U.S. is expected to recognize the newest Syrian coalition (and its Islamic-dominated-command) as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people. The State Department has also indicated it will soon name the opposition's highly effective al-Nusra Front a "terrorist organization" for its ties to Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI).

    Both of these stipulations — recognition of a unified opposition and creation of distance from extremists — are required in order for the Obama administration to openly acknowledge supporting Syrian rebels with heavy weapons.

    I can tell you are desperate to avoid discussing this. I don't see what is difficult about admitting that the administration was shipping guns to Libyan Rebels. Heck, the media wasn't afraid of the topic back when "we" were taking down Qaddaffi. It was all good that we are helping the "rebels".

    It's only after we learned that Al Qaeda was among the Rebels and those terrorists murder our Ambassador and other Americans that this is suddenly something that must not be discussed at all costs. Heck, Obama went so far as to lie about it before the election. There has to be alot more hear than we even know now.

    I think you give him too much credit. I don't think he realizes he supports terrorists.
