Posted on 12/08/2012 7:43:51 AM PST by darkwing104
In a rare moment of journalism the New York Times reported that the Obama Administration secretly encouraged Arab countries to ship arms to rebel forces in Libya during the rebellion to oust longtime dictator Muammar Qaddafi. The arms were provided to the rebels and Islamic extremists with links to al Qaeda in a Muslim Brother sponsored insurrection to turn the oil rich African nation into an Islamic republic.
The flow of weapons and supplies from al Qatar and the United Arab Emirates (with the help of the Administration lead NATO airstrikes) overwhelmed the Libyan military and brought about the fall of the Qaddafi regime. Militant groups were well armed and provided a viable threat to the current government of Libya and everyone else in the embattled nation. The unstable situation on the ground in Libya may very well repeat itself in Syria given the way events are unfolding. The current situation on the ground in Libya, Egypt and now Syria is an indication that the Arab Spring movement touted by Barack Obama is turning out to be a miserable failure.
The Obama White House encouraged al Qatar and United Arab Emirates to arm the Libyan rebels and the Islamic extremists. Later the President complained that the movement of arms was not coordinated with the White House to monitor who received the shipments of arms. In a war and disaster zones proper logistics of equipment distribution never works as planned. To date no administration has learned that simple lesson despite clear evidence of the truth, media rosy pictures notwithstanding.

who’s enemy . not zer0bama’s enemies.
Good article, but I wish these conservative writers wouldn't keep making the mistake of giving credit to the enemy when no credit is due.
This was NOT a mistake, as other parts of the article seem to understand. This was done on purpose. Obama and Hillary aided our Muslim enemies ON PURPOSE. They knew perfectly well who these scummy terrorists were, and they WANTED them to win. Obama is a Muslim, and Hillary is a Muslim lover.
Muslim Brotherhood inherits U.S. war gear
For Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood-dominated government, more battle tanks and jet fighters are on their way from the United States.
Cairo’s military link to Washington has remained intact, meaning the U.S. will continue to modernize the biggest military in Africa even as President Mohammed Morsi has decreed near-absolute power for himself and his supporters and opponents battle outside his palace.

Our man in Cairo
By David Ignatius,
How did Washington become the best friend of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, even as President Mohamed Morsi was asserting dictatorial powers and his followers were beating up secular liberals in the streets of Cairo? Its a question many Arabs ask these days, and it deserves an answer.
Morsi and his Brotherhood followers are on a power trip after decades of isolation and persecution. You could see that newfound status when Morsi visited the United Nations in September and even more so during the diplomacy that led to last months cease-fire in Gaza, brokered by Morsi and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The Brotherhood leaders had gone from outcasts to superstars, and they were basking in the attention.
And lets be honest: The Obama administration has been Morsis main enabler. U.S. officials have worked closely with him on economic development and regional diplomacy. Visiting Washington last week, Morsis top aides were touting their bosss close contacts with President Obama and describing phone calls between the two leaders that led to the Gaza cease-fire.
