This from the NEW YORK TIMES hardly a "Right Winged" paper..

"Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster, according to American officials and Middle Eastern diplomats."

"“The opposition groups that are receiving the most of the lethal aid are exactly the ones we don’t want to have it,” said one American official familiar with the outlines of those findings, commenting on an operation that in American eyes has increasingly gone awry."

"The United States is not sending arms directly to the Syrian opposition. Instead, it is providing intelligence and other support for shipments of secondhand light weapons like rifles and grenades into Syria, mainly orchestrated from Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The reports indicate that the shipments organized from Qatar, in particular, are largely going to hard-line Islamists."

Arms are being sent through cutouts and supposed Allies and just like Fast and Furious the lack of over-site from this Government is leading
us to arm the very people that are slaughtering their own people. We of course stay above the fray.

This is the result of this Administrations Foreign Policy or really the lack thereof...

Obama: 'If four Americans get killed, it's not OPTIMAL'

"President Barack Obama, during an interview to be shown on Comedy Central, has responded to a question about his administration's confused communication after the Benghazi attack, by saying: 'If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.'

Tagg Romney said he would like to take a Swing at Obama.. I know how he feels.

When you go on Comedy Channel as an incumbent - you a loser

As Jeff Foxworthy might have said, "If you an incumbent President and you go on the Comedy Channel with a faux Jew John Stewart - you might be a stupid loser. Or you might be pandering to the clueless youth vote. Either way, you suck.

I'm thinking it is gonna be about a 10 point spread - in Romney's favor.

And Thank God. What would this Obama dork come up with in a second term? Scary stuff.

Obama - what a freaking loser

Not optimal. This un-American lying weasel of a 'president' would probably prefer if four hundred Americans got killed, as long as he could use the event to promet himself.

Barry Obama is the worst President ever. Time for him to step down. This job is waaaaayyyyy over his head.

Here's "optimal"

The Americans who took a gigantic leap of faith that a guy who wasn't qualified to be something like Mayor of Chicago or even a lot of other cities realize their mistake and correct it in November.

NUK,, how dare you

""""The Americans who took a gigantic leap of faith that a guy who wasn't qualified to be something like Mayor of Chicago or even a lot of other cities realize their mistake and correct it in November."""

In this post you have made Several offensive racist Comments, which I am sure you didn't intend to do, so I "feel" it's my duty to point out ,,,

1) leap of Faith, this is 2 fold offensive,as it alienates members confined to "non Leaping" abilities and secondly may cause distress for people who can't have Faith...
2) Qualified; this should be self explanatory as Qualified is a condition meant to exclude some people that may not have the ability to be Qualified
3) Chicago; we ALL know this is Code for Criminal, Corrupt, Gangster, all of which is used to denigrate Our Dear Leader
4) November; Jewish, Christian, European, American, Oceanic, Central Asian
means to label seasonal time

Tragedy in Benghazi

Aside from all the other issues, why has no one asked "why was the Ambassador in Benghazi on 9/11? Some diplomatic necessity? His personal preference? Be interesting to know what drove his decision to be there on that date when his normal place of duty is in Tripoli. There was more security in Tripoli at the Embassy than in in Benghazi--I do believe that, knowing that, and if I decided to go to Benghazi, think I'd have have said "Hey, I want some (pick a nr) of you guys to come with me"---. Just lotsa questions to be asked about the whole tragedy.

Libya

Tragedy ???
A Tragedy, is when mom and dad are killed in a car wreck,
A Tragedy, is when a nation forgoes it's laws Millions have died for in vain
A tragedy, is NOT NOT NOT what happened in Libya,
A tragedy is NOT NOT NOT what happened on 9/11/01
A tragedy IS that YOU and I and our fellow citizens ALLOW this ILLEGAL government to exist and YES it IS illegal, as at no point has our federal Government been restrained by the Constitution (or us) for Decades...
That my E friend is THE tragedy of ALL tragedies,,

(oh and NO I have NO plan to do/act differently than I have for the last 46 years.. So I'm JUST as big a tragedy to Freedom as are the rest of y'all)

Qualla & Libya

If you work at at it just a tad, I think you and former Seal Benjamin Smith could form a team and go on the TeaParty lecture circuit.

SEAL at Home Gym

OMG, the honor you do me by including my name in the same sentence with a Real Life Navy Seal,,, Thanks,, but for the Love of Freedom DO NOT EVER do that again !!!

All I do is post and have an opinion, NO WAY EVER does that merit being in the same sentence with a REAL LIFE NAVY SEAL, (Marine, Ranger, Air Force, Coast Guard)...

Qualla & Seal

Sorry you didn't make the connection--he's a FORMER Seal and politically, somewhere to the right of Attila. I'm sure he, like all who served made numerous sacrifices while serving. Just an example, in my 21 yrs of active duty, I had 22 different mailing addresses! No timely mail for me. But like all others who faced similar cirsumstances, we all survived.

Actually Seal and Served

What I don't get is your refusal to exclude my name from a current, former alive, deceased member of the Armed Forces in the same sentence. That's my only request...

NOW if you want me to pontificate on these peoples complete and utter failure to uphold their SWORN duty,,, ok fine, I will, (but again that's MY opinion)
which holds no ill will nor ill wishes to those EXACT same people, as THEY did something,, to say that again they D I D something... and I have not

That alone IS Honor, right or wrong, and THAT is what I respect ....
