Cherson & Molschky: Obama Administration Keeps ‘Losing’ Weapons to the Enemy

Now in the hands of ISIS. Source.

In at least three separate cases, the US government under Obama’s watch has lost track of weapons and other military equipment.

While the President is quick to point the finger at former President George Bush for the Iraq War, he conveniently stays mum when it comes to his own administration’s negligence in allowing the enemy to gain control of American weaponry…

…“The Pentagon is unable to account for more than $500 million in U.S. military aid given to Yemen, amid fears that the weaponry, aircraft and equipment is at risk of being seized by Iranian-backed rebels or al-Qaeda, according to U.S. officials.

“… ‘We have to assume it’s completely compromised and gone,’ said a legislative aide on Capitol Hill who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter”…

    Yeah, funny how that happens. You’d almost think he wanted to redistribute weapons.

      It’s called covert aid.
      Benghazi was a terrorist attack which was covered up for this very reason, covert aid.

    Here’s a Canadian contribution to the ISIS arsenal… Who is responsible and will they be punished? LOL.

      Leave it to the NDP to bitch about how we weren’t getting out of that war fast enough, now they bitch that they left too quickly and left weapons behind.

      It’s as if Jack never left.

    I have been trying to find a serial number lookup for FNH M-16s but so far no luck.
    That rifle is 2003 or newer.

      It’s the latest version used by the USMC and I didn’t know that this M16A4 was the Belgium FN made by Harrington.

      Someone somewhere knows about these and had to have seen the boxes go out the back door.
      Maybe this too is on Hillary’s server along with the Benghazi weapons smuggling she wants covered up.

        There are M16A4s in every branch of the service by now, the Marines just got their M16A4s first back in the day.

        What I was really curious was if it was one of the weapons coming out of Yemen, Iraq, or any of the Syrian Rebels.

        Most of the Iraqi forces that I have seen with M16s have had the A2 models that have mostly been retired in the US, but are still plentiful in the world and were what we gave a lot of to the Afghans.

    The U.S. military should have a secret kill switch to render seize military equipment useless.

    Imam Obama blames it all on a YouTube video. Or maybe he is blaming Netanyahu? It is so hard to keep track of this radical in the White House.
