ISIS Use US Stinger Missiles to Shoot Down Helicopter in Iraq


The Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS) seized the strategic city of Tal Afar near the Syrian border, part of its goal of linking areas under its control on both sides of the Iraq-Syria frontier. West of Baghdad, an army helicopter was shot down during clashes near the city of Fallujah, killing the aircraft’s two-man crew, security officials said. (…more here)

When Obama said that we were leaving behind a safe and secure Iraq, he was obviously reading an old Bush speech. Obama pulled the rug out from under them. And now they have our gear, tanks, humvees and stingers.

Obama lived off the fat of Bush’s hard work for years — the same years he spent dismantling all the good that was done. And so the era of Obama begins. Duck.

US-made Stinger missiles have likely fallen into ISIS hands, officials say,” FOX News, June 16, 2014

U.S. officials with access to the latest U.S. intelligence on Iraq told Fox News it “appears likely/probable” that U.S.-made Stinger missiles have fallen into the hands of Sunni insurgents.

It is possible that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters acquired them from army bases they have taken over in recent days, the sources said.

The Stinger missile is a shoulder-fired surface-to-air weapon that is used against aircraft.

As ISIS forces have advanced through Iraq, concerns have increased that more U.S.-made weaponry could fall into the hands of the radical group.

Iraqi intelligence officials said ISIS fighters managed to take control of two big weapons depots late last week holding some 400,000 items, including AK-47 rifles, rockets and rocket-propelled grenades, artillery shells and mortars. A quarter of the stockpiles were quickly sent to Syria in order to help the group’s comrades there, they said.

Also last week, according to a report from the West Point Combating Terrorism Center, the ISIS “now possesses scores of Iraqi military equipment originally provided by the United States, from Humvees and cargo vehicles to small arms.”
