Obama Waives Ban on Arming Terrorists to Aid Syrian Rebels

When I first highlighted the fact that the rebels in Syria had large al-Qaeda elements to it back in December of last year, most people thought it was too incredible to believe. Fast forward to today, and not only is this admitted fact, but we have only solidified our alliance with the rebels over the past nine months. We are now allied with forces that are our purported number one enemy, the threat of which has been used to justify the destruction of civil liberties in this country. Mind-boggling.

Our corrupt, crony leaders are now in such a desperate panic to establish regime change in Syria that we are waiving bans on arming terrorist groups, so that we can arm terrorist groups. The Washington Examiner reports that:

President Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to “vetted” opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.

The president, citing his authority under the Arms Export Control Act, announced today that he would “waive the prohibitions in sections 40 and 40A of the AECA related to such a transaction.”

The law allows the president to waive those prohibitions if he “determines that the transaction is essential to the national security interests of the United States.”

“Our intelligence agencies, I think, have a very good handle on who to support and who not to support,” Corker said. “And there’s going to be mistakes. We understand some people are going to get arms that should not be getting arms. But we still should be doing everything we can to support the free Syrian opposition.”

Watch these ancient chicken hawk cronies in the clip below. The demented Corker comment comes in around the 6:50 minute.

Um, ok. Oceania has always been allies with al-Qaeda.

Just in case you still question the nature of the “rebels,” read this.

    Keep up the good work.

  2. The USA and the Wahhabis have been providing weapons and military goods to thugs and murderers – the so called Syrian Free Army, since 2007. This is not new. Obama is ….is….well, we all know.

  3. Tell me, is gunrunning to known terrorists a high crime or a misdemeanor?

    • It is illegal until a POTUS decides it is conveniently not illegal. Reagan got pilloried for Iran-Contra, but with Obumbler it’s all good :-)
