Default How the Taliban got their hands on modern US missiles

Obama (and Hillary) give the government of Qatar a bunch of missiles...

Those same missiles end up in Afghanistan...To attack our helicopters...

Good thing we gave them terrorists to oversee, too...They have SUCH a great record...

How the Taliban got their hands on modern US missiles

Quote:
The Obama administration isnít only giving the Taliban back its commanders ó itís giving them weapons.

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.


They thought they had a surefire kill. But instead of bursting into flames, the Chinook just disappeared into the darkness as the American pilot recovered control of the aircraft and brought it to the ground in a hard landing.
The assault team jumped out the open doors and ran clear in case it exploded. Less than 30 seconds later, the Taliban gunner and his comrade erupted into flames as an American gunship overhead locked onto their position and opened fire.

The next day, an explosive ordnance disposal team arrived to pick through the wreckage and found unexploded pieces of a missile casing that could only belong to a Stinger missile.

Lodged in the right nacelle, they 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.

Reports of the Stinger reached the highest echelons of the US command in Afghanistan and became a source of intense speculation, but no action.
Everyone knew the war was winding down. Revealing that the Taliban had US-made Stingers risked demoralizing coalition troops. Because there were no coalition casualties, government officials made no public announcement of the attack.

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 Clintonís 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.

Qatar now is expected to hold five Taliban commanders released from Guantanamo for a year before allowing them to go to Afghanistan.
But if we canít trust the Qataris not to give our weapons to the Taliban, how can we trust them with this?

It's mind-blowing how incompetent and naive this admin is.

And people wonder what Chris Stevens and the CIA were doing for Hillary in Libya.

They're not incompetent, they're anti-American bastards, plain & simple, and know exactly what they're doing. The twits here on PW who defend Obama and his ilk are the ones who are naive...or possibly anti-American as well. Anyone who supports this administration is complicit in this coup to destroy the country.

Gonna need a better source than a tabloid.

And even if the story is as accurate as written, the attention-grabbing nonsense of "Obama giving the Taliban missiles" doesn't fly. Love the part where they try to relate an attack from 2012 to today's POW exchange. Gotta love creative storytelling.

I hate to say it JEV, but I agree with you. This administration just can't be trusted with our security as a nation, nor can we trust them to uphold the Constitution, and that is why I despise those who now support obama's regime.

If it was any other man in the White House I'm sure that they would be howling like dogs at the total lack of respect of our Constitution, but because it's obama it's different.

Wonderful technique, deny, deny, deny, that way messy facts can be avoided. Tell us what was Ambassador Stevens doing in Benghazi, his mission was so important he had to stay there with minimal security and in spite of the attacks. Gee, you don't suppose it was recovering missiles.
