Remember when we were supporting the Libyan opposition to Qadaffi behind the scenes? You know, during that “Arab Spring” that was supposed to bring democracy to the Arab world?
Well, it turns out that we were apparently unwittingly supporting some other folks too.
According to the NYT, a fair amount of the weaponry the US funneled to the Libyan opposition through Qatar ended up in the hands of jihadist groups. You know, those same folks who run around forcing women to wear burqas/chadoors, chanting “death to America”, and want to impose Shaira worldwide.
No evidence has turned up linking any of these arms to the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.
As I’ve asked before: tell me again why we’re supporting these “Arab Spring” uprisings?
