    Egypt claims jihadists fired US Hellfire missile at government office

    Jihadists in Egypt's lawless Sinai Peninsula are using U.S. weapons to carry out attacks against the temporary government in the wake of the military's ouster of President Mohammed Morsi, according to the embattled nation's Interior Ministry.The government office posted an official statement on its Facebook page along with images of an exploded missile that hit the third floor of a building in the city of el-Arish last week. The post said terrorist forces targeted the North Sinai Security Directorate office with a ballistic missile that struck the third floor facade of the building, leaving three soldiers injured. While attacks in the Sinai, which borders Gaza and is a haven for terrorist activity, have become commonplace, the prospect that militants have U.S. weapons typically fired from helicopters at their disposal is especially alarming.

    Where and how in the hell did Jihadist get ahold of American made missiles? Does the secret CIA mission in Benghazi where they had over two dozen CIA operatives stationed have anything to do with it? You do realize those missiles can easily be used to take down civilian aircraft like an airliner

    the Benghazi truths are finally coming to light. the dots are finally starting to be connected, and it is a very dangerous situation. No wonder Obama and Clinton did everything they can to cover it up. no wonder why Hillary left the state department

    this will take down Obama and Hillary both when they find enough evidence that deadly missiles like the hell fire made it into the hands of Jihadist thanks to their actions

    Heya Trfjr .....From your piece.


    A request for comment to the U.S. Department of Defense was not immediately returned.

    Reports of U.S.-made weapons turning up in the Sinai date back to at least January, when six U.S.-made missiles were found in a cache of weapons bound for Gaza. And in February, FoxNews.com reported exclusively that weapons left over from the revolution in Libya were being sold at clandestine auctions is the Sinai Peninsula. The U.S. has repeatedly denied arming the Libyan rebels, though it did assist them in other ways with the overthrow of longtime Libyan strongman Muammar Qaddafi.....snip~

    30 some attacks on Egyptian Forces. 500 Extreme radicals operating out of the Sinai and of course the MB denies any involvement. Not the first Missile either. Hopefully the Egyptian Military will hunt all of the MB down to extinction. Then AQ loses a big chunk of their financial backing.

    And also they claimed a you tube vid was to blame for the attack and that the IRS targeting was to be blamed on two rogue agents in Cincinnati. how many times does this administration need to lie to you befor you stop beleaveing them

    You don't go buy hellfire missiles from some swap meet

    So almost 2 years after Gaddifi was killed the jihadists FINALLY use a missile? And in so pissant an attack it is almost disgraceful. The Libyan terrorists must be mocking these jihadists! seems to me an Israeli target would have been hit long ago. Seems a tad too contrived. (A weapon's cache was found in the Sinai back in Feb)

    Now seeing how the Hellfire is a widely distributed weapon and it requires a rather complex firing/maintenance support system I'd say the chances are it could have come from most anyplace to include Afghanistan or Iraq, but moved and auctioned for two years prior to use???? Stolen from any Middle Eastern nation we supply with military aid is as likely as some secret missile deal.

    I doubt these were directly sold to Jihadists by the U.S., however, this is a prime example (if verified) why we shouldn't be selling weapons to ANY country.

    Yeah, sure thing, make it up as ya go on the fly, the Libyan terrorists are mocking these jidadists.

    Which has nothing to do with US weapons turning up in the Sinai.

    The post said terrorist forces targeted the North Sinai Security Directorate office with a ballistic missile that struck the third floor facade of the building, leaving three soldiers injured. While attacks in the Sinai, which borders Gaza and is a haven for terrorist activity, have become commonplace, the prospect that militants have U.S. weapons typically fired from helicopters at their disposal is especially alarming.....snip~

    So much for the alleged contrivance.

    Well....myself, I wouldn't take anything this Administration says at face value.

    You are correct about the Hellfire Missile.....but then we were also Supplying Gadhafi. Not just the Russians.

    FUD's
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGM-114_Hellfire

    The Hellfire missile is an air to ground missile. Often used against armored vehicles and fixed targets.

    To the OP the only way such a missile is used against an airliner is if its sitting on the ground, its not a ground to air missile.
    Get to know your stuff and dont' depend so much on your "source" of misinformation.

    Let's see, the attack was in the Sinai, the weapons cache found in the Sinai- yeah no connection there....

    So why would we give missiles typically fired from attack choppers to ground pounding Lybians?

    You are just making crap up on the fly. The fact that hellfire missiles were used rather than a the dozens of different types of Iranian supplied missiles the jihadists in the Gaza/Sinai area have far more experience using seems to be odd at the very least.

    The Lybians attacked with a much better result in a much more coordinated way. This Sinai attack was amateur hour with attack chopper missiles and only three are wounded????

    Way too much contrivance...

    Nah, the only one that made up crap was you..... especially with that part on Libyan terrorists mocking Jihadists.

    Uhm because we were giving Aid to Gadhafi before his downfall. Try looking it up.

    The Libyans didn't attack anything in the Sinai.
