Fears are being raised in Washington that a secret delivery of arms shipments to Libyan rebels, Okayed by the Obama administration, might have gotten into the hands of Islamic terrorists, and may very well be the weapons used by Al Qaeda linked terrorists to kill U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.
You need not attribute to malice what can be explained by incompetence — assuming there is any meaningful difference between willful incompetence and malice.
As former State Department adviser Vali Nasr explains:
“To do this right, you have to have on-the-ground intelligence and you have to have experience. If you rely on a country that doesn’t have those things, you are really flying blind. When you have an intermediary, you are going to lose control.”
Obama et al. have demonized, demoralized, and disarmed the intelligence community at every possible opportunity. They hog credit for its successes (e.g., finding bin Laden) and scapegoat it for their own failures (e.g., Benghazi).
Weapons paid for with our money and sent by Obama to Syria will end up in enemy hands too.
