Author: Taliban used 2012-model Stinger missile to down Army copter. Missile was checked out by...CIA??

It's not a bad idea to take press blurbs about new books with a grain of salt.  With that in mind, the NY Post did a story about one event in a new book called "Dark Forces: The truth about what happened in Benghazi."

The author claims that on July 25, 2012, Taliban fighters in Kunar province hit a US Army CH-47 helicopter with a new generation Stinger missile.  Fortunately the twin-engine Chinook didn't explode and was able to make a controlled landing.

The claim is that when the helo was examined closely, a piece of the missile bearing a serial number was found lodged in one of the engines, which enabled the military to trace the missile to a lot signed out by the CIA early in 2012.

The missile is believed to be part of the same lot the CIA turned over to the ­Qataris in early 2011, weapons Hillary Rodham Clinton’s State Department intended for anti-Khadafy forces in Libya.  The author's sources believe the Qataris delivered between 50 and 60 of these missiles to the Taliban in early 2012.

If true, this should be a devastating indictment of Team Obama.  But as noted at the top, I'll look for some confirmation before buying the story.

Plus, even if it's true there are too many ways for Hillary and Obozo to wriggle out of any blame.  I can hear the whining now: "We were just trying to support those brave rebel fighters trying to overthrow the eeevil, child-murdering Assad regime in Syria.  Assad is clobbering them with helicopter gunships, and we wanted to send in the US Air Force but those child-hating Republicans said no.  So we took the only option we had left, and used Qatar to give missiles to the Syrian rebels.  You can't blame us if one or two or fifty got stolen and ended up being used against us in Afghanistan--which, by the way, was a war started by George Bush!!!"

Lying sacks of shit.  Sons of bitches.  Worthless wastes of skin.

And barring a miracle Cankles is gonna be president.  I woulda thought the American public would never elect such a crooked, lying bitch, but then somehow Obama got elected--twice--so I'm not hopeful.
