Via Qatar, Obama Administration Has Been Equipping Taliban With Stinger Missiles


Obama hasn’t just been releasing their top commanders. Inadvertently or otherwise, he has been equipping the Taliban with Stinger missiles. Author Kenneth Timmerman reports:

Miliary records and sources reveal that on July 25, 2012, Taliban fighters in Kunar province successfully targeted a US Army CH-47 helicopter with a new generation Stinger missile. …

Lodged in the right nacelle, [investigators] found one fragment that contained an entire serial number.

The investigation took time. Arms were twisted, noses put out of joint. But when the results came back, they were stunning: The Stinger tracked back to a lot that had been signed out by the CIA recently, not during the anti-Soviet jihad.

This is starting to smell as bad as the Bergdahl deal…

My sources in the US Special Operations community believe the Stinger fired against the Chinook was part of the same lot the CIA turned over to the Qataris in early 2011, weapons Hillary Rodham Clinton’s State Department intended for anti-Khadafy forces in Libya.

They believe the Qataris delivered between 50 and 60 of those same Stingers to the Taliban in early 2012, and an additional 200 SA-24 Igla-S surface-to-air missiles.

Obama says the five top Taliban commanders he just released won’t be a problem because Qatar guarantees they will go a whole year without killing any more Americans in terrorist operations. Meanwhile, Qatar is funneling our Stinger missiles to the Taliban.

Obama’s foreign policy can only be explained by either incompetence taken to extremes never before witnessed, or treason consistent with his background and ideology. In either case, the need for impeachment is urgent.
