This time I am talking about those mental midgets we elect for our Congress.
This time they have out stupid themselves.
Does anyone remember when the report came out that ISIS was using American weapons in their struggle? NO? Then listen up!
Weapons made in at least 25 nations, including the United States, made their way into the hands of extremists through decades of industry initiatives that saturated the region with destructive power. The weapons range from small firearms to heavy artillery and anti-aircraft missiles.
“Irresponsible transfers of arms and failure to control the resulting stockpiles are a major cause of untold human suffering in Iraq,” said the 45-page report titled “The Arming of the Islamic State.”
The findings were based largely on expert review of thousands of Islamic State and other videos showing militants wielding the weapons, which were identified in the report.
Ring a bell?
I bring up old news with good reason…..
The House voted for the first time today to explicitly authorize the incoming Donald Trump administration to arm vetted Syrian rebels with anti-aircraft missiles.
While the language in the annual defense bill also creates restrictions on the provision of the controversial weapons, it represents a win for Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain, R-Ariz., a fervent advocate of helping the rebels resist President Bashar al-Assad and his Russian and Iranian allies. The Senate is expected to pass the bill next week.
Until now, the transfer of man-portable air-defense systems, or MANPADs, had been implicitly authorized in the absence of an outright ban. Critics, however, view the new provision as tantamount to a policy recommendation for the president-elect.
