The last thing Obama wanted was for the USA to become involved in a Libyan revolution; however, he also understood that the US needed to support its NATO allies, which is exactly what he did.

    If one must revise history in order to revile a single man, then the basis for said revilement must be pretty damned weak.

    Obama said 6 times in his UN speech it was a protest from an anti Muslim video. You don't believe that?

    In a story thatís been largely buried by the media for years upon years Ė and was doubly buried in the aftermath of the Benghazi terrorist attack on September 11 resulting in the death of four Americans Ė the New York Times is now reporting that US-approved arms that were supposed to go to Libya rebels went to Islamist terrorists. Even more importantly, the Obama administration knew about it before, during, and after the Benghazi attacks. The Times reports:

    No evidence has emerged linking the weapons provided by the Qataris during the uprising against Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi to the attack that killed four Americans at the United States diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in September.

    But in the months before, the Obama administration clearly was worried about the consequences of its hidden hand in helping arm Libyan militants, concerns that have not previously been reported. The weapons and money from Qatar strengthened militant groups in Libya, allowing them to become a destabilizing force since the fall of the Qaddafi government Ö.

    The United States, which had only small numbers of C.I.A. officers on the ground in Libya during the tumult of the rebellion, provided little oversight of the arms shipments. Within weeks of endorsing Qatarís plan to send weapons there in spring 2011, the White House began receiving reports that they were going to Islamic militant groups

    This was clearly a risk in arming the rebels in the first place. As Breitbart News reported, Benghazi was controlled by terrorist group Ansar Al-Shariah. And terrorists like Sufyan Ben Qumu, who was originally rumored to be the planner of the Benghazi attack (sources later denied he was the planner), were armed and supplied by the United States in their war against Muammar Qadaffi.

    If, in fact, US-funneled weapons were used in the Benghazi attack and the administration knew about it, that would explain their initial attempt to position the Benghazi attack as a spontaneous riot gone amiss. Itís one thing to hand guns to Libyan rebels who later go crazy about a YouTube video Ė thatís at least mildly justifiable. Itís radically unjustifiable to hand over weapons to terrorists, who then go on to plan attacks against the United States.


    BenghaziGate: Obama Admin Knew Libyan Terrorists Had US-Provided Weapons



    Man Obama sure likes to run guns and give them to undesirables, especially those who hate Americans. Of course this is exactly what I suspected quite awhile ago. This is why the bogus story about the video came out...still don't know who thought that little ditty up...prolly Jarrett or Axelrod.
    Gee Obama lies, what a surprise!!!
    This is always a risk whenever a country provides weapons to another country or group, the fact is that once they leave your hands they leave your hands and your dependent on the willingness and ability of the group you give them to, to not let them fall out of their control. However, its a common practice for several reasons although mostly because we don't have to do the fighting ourselves, or at least keep boots off the ground, if we arm an opposition group. Of course by not using our own Soldiers, and thus having no risk of weapons getting into the hands of the enemy, we take a greater risk with their lives. The calculus of decision making is often difficult in these situations, but before we judge Obama too harshly for arming opposition groups in Libya lets remember that arming opposition groups has been a staple of US foreign policy for decades, and its often had unwanted consequences like those in Benghazi.

    So we can blame the entire Iraq war on G.W.B. and you guys are okay with that? No WMD's, yet we invaded anyways?

    Obama did? Could you give me a link to that?

    Meanwhile, would you care to comment on my actual post, which was pointing out that France and other countries supplied weapons to the rebels, not the USA. You know, which was the allegation you made in your OP, and I refuted with evidence.

    You can look up his UN speech and you have proof that the US provided no weapons to the Libyan rebels which are actually Islamic terrorists???
