hat tip to "ajacksonian." i received the linked story below in an email. many thanks.
here's the ship. and, it carried arms. which were delivered to al queda and to the muslim brotherhood, who squabbled over their possession. this fox news post confirms that steven's last act as ambassador was to confer with turkish officials, who visited him in benghazi, and it seems beyond peradventure at this point that one of the things they talked about were the arms aboard this vessel. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/25/was-syrian-weapons-shipment-factor-in-ambassadors-benghazi-visit/ .
the fact that the arms arrived aboard the vessel, and that they have been distributed, also seems beyond peradventure, given the statements by various people involved in the shipping, and given that the arms deliveries, and distribution of weapons, have also been confirmed.
go to the link. read. reflect. draw your own conclusions. such conclusions seem inescapable to me, but maybe you have a more agile mind, such as will allow you to let obama skate on this fiasco. such a conclusion would mark you as an idiot, imho, but, you are free to make any conclusion you want.
but, you just watch. "manpads" will start downing syrian armed forces planes and helicopters, just as soon as the various groups that got them figure out how to operate them. (it won't be long.)
we'll chat again when that happens.
