Barack Obama has officially waived a legal provision that he had no intention of following anyway. Yet, one has to wonder how blatant this administration would have to be before America would wake up and see them for who they are. The CIA has been suspected of running terrorist campaigns for decades. The Director of the CIA, John Brennan is a Muslim, who may be on his own personal jihad at the expense of his fellow Americans. Our government was already aiding terrorist organizations, regardless of any laws, which made Brennan a nice fit.
Want examples? I'll give you a couple of examples.
How about The Muslim Brotherhood? Egypt could do no wrong before their revolution. We provided them tanks and fighter jets with a nice wad of cash to make sure that they were allowed to reign down terror without running out of funds to do so. An Egyptian paper reported recently that Obama himself is a member of The Muslim Brotherhood.
What about the February 17th Martyr's Brigade? Are you aware that our government was paying Al Qaeda to defend the diplomatic mission in Benghazi?
And let's not forget about the revelation that the CIA was on the grounds in Benghazi. What were they doing? They were running weapons. This is what the CIA does. Have you ever wondered why many of these terrorists have ties back to America, from Osama Bin Laden to Mohamed Morsi, who happened to be a professor at USC? Did you know that?
At any rate, Obama has made it official.
The Washington Examiner reports:
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.
Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, which was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., in 2001. Assad's regime is backed by Iran and Hezbollah.
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."
Those two sections prohibit sending weaponry to countries described in section 40(d): "The prohibitions contained in this section apply with respect to a country if the Secretary of State determines that the government of that country has repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism," Congress stated in the Arms Control Export Act.
"For purposes of this subsection, such acts shall include all activities that the Secretary determines willfully aid or abet the international proliferation of nuclear explosive devices to individuals or groups or willfully aid or abet an individual or groups in acquiring unsafeguarded special nuclear material," the law continues.
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."
Under section 40(g) of the AECA, the Obama team must also provide Congress — at least 15 days before turning over the weapons — "the name of any country involved in the proposed transaction, the identity of any recipient of the items to be provided pursuant to the proposed transaction, and the anticipated use of those items," along with a list of the weaponry to be provided, when they will be delivered, and why the transfer is key to American security interests.
It gets worse my friends. The dictator has support. He doesn't just have support from Democrats, he has support of Republicans, as well. Bob Corker is quickly climbing up the ranks of the RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) with this situation in Syria. Check out his justification for a Terrorist President who has decided to arm his terrorist friends…
Still, US politicians believe national intelligence community can ensure that the military assistance goes to the right hands.
"Our intelligence agencies, I think, have a very good handle on who to support and who not to support, "Senator Bob Corker said on CBS on Sunday. "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."
The US, France and UK announced their intention to provide more help to the Syrian opposition after a Monday meeting of foreign ministers in Paris. US Secretary of State said the US pursuits a political solution of the Syrian crisis, which would deliver a future Syria without Bashar Assad.
Has the West gone mad? I don't care what your intentions are. It is not OK to aid the enemy. This is a slap in the face to so many people who have lost loved ones at the hands of Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups.
There is only one silver lining that I can see in any of this, and that is quite simply that they are no longer trying to hide it. We have been supporting terrorists all along, and the administration finally admits it.
This is so wrong in so many ways. Ten thousand Americans died between 9/11 and the subsequent wars we have fought. They died at the hands of Al Qaeda or related terrorists groups and governments. Our elected officials don't seem to give 10,000 dead Americans the time of day. They have no respect for their families or our recent history. Yesterday's bitter enemy is today's best friend; whatever pushes the agenda forward.
Let's openly aid terrorists. At least they aren't hiding it anymore.
But what is it going to take for Americans to wake up? How do you get through to Obama supporters?
Folks, this is not just Obama. It's a large majority of our elected officials who are complicit and fueling this train wreck. It is not just the democrats. People need to understand that.
I don't know what it is going to take to wake people up, but I will keep yelling until they do so.
If you want to help, please share this or one of the stories I quoted from. I know it is disheartening, but we must keep up the fight. There is hope. 18 months ago I was that guy who was eating Cheetos and didn't care much about anything going on around me. People do wake up, but they won't wake up unless we keep screaming.
