    It seems that arms we allowed Qatar to quietly ship to Libyan rebels have ended up in the wrong hands, not only there but in Syria and Mali as well. They've apparently been given to islamic radicals.

    American's should be very, very wary of the motives of any country in the Arab world. We don't understand the sub-currents which weave through their Byzantine maneuverings against each other, different tribes and different brands of Islam. And, we never have. We're like babes in the woods over there.

    It's a lesson the Bush administration learned the hard way. So did the Clintons, the other Bush, Reagan and all the way back to Woodrow Wilson. It seems that the Obama administration's "experts" don't know any more about it than anyone else and we're once again being taken to the cleaners by them.

    Oh no, Herr obama knows that the answer is to appoint "Devout Muslims" to positions of power and authority in our National Security Serivices.

    Here's a real issue, one for which the President might actually be at fault, and the best you can do is repeat the same, tired old Obamaphobe mantra?
