EXCLUSIVE: The recent theft of massive amounts of highly sensitive U.S. military equipment from Libya is far worse than previously thought, Fox News has learned, with raiders swiping hundreds of weapons that are now in the hands of militia groups aligned with terror organizations and the Muslim Brotherhood.
The equipment, as Fox News previously reported, was used for training in Libya by U.S. Special Forces. The training team, which was funded by the Pentagon, has since been pulled, partly in response to the overnight raids last August.
According to State Department and military sources, dozens of highly armored vehicles called GMV's, provided by the United States, are now missing. The vehicles feature GPS navigation as well as various sets of weapon mounts and can be outfitted with smoke-grenade launchers. U.S. Special Forces undergo significant training to operate these vehicles. Fox News is told the vehicles provided to the Libyans are now gone.

They were “gifted” not stolen under the order of the Obama Adminstration
Barry is still gun running to the enemy.
I think you are correct. This sounds like an Obama plan coming together to allow advanced weaponry to fall into the hands of the radical Islamists who Obama has been so trying to help to establish the Greater Caliphate.
“They were gifted not stolen”
Yep. Plus, if the arms are stolen then it was not illegal for Obama to “give” them.
All of this is insane.
Well, I’ll third the motion. Obama turned the country over to the terrorists in the first place, after helping them murder Kaddafi. And he has given a lot more than just guns. All kinds of useful weapons.
When it came to a choice between the Muslim Arab terrorists and the Black Africans, Obama chose the terrorists. Black Africans will be paying a heavy price for many years, as the Muslims move south again in their perpetual effort to burn churches and enslave children.
Obama’s bloody transfer of US weapons to al Qaeda
will eventually come home to “roost” in American malls,
murdering tens of thousands
(like in Boston and New York and more, still ignored
and long forgotten).
On the bright side, the extremists don’t have the training that’s required....uh, do they?
It’s probably OK since their Walmarts and gun shops probably can’t get ammo either.
True. I recall a top secret reconnaissance drone gifted to Iran some time back. A drone that 0bama made no effort to destroy or retrieve, either.
Hey, a little rape, murder and plunder never hurt anybody important.
“Stolen” my ass, they were given to them at the orders of the occupier of the White House.
The team was TOO effective, getting good perp snatch info.
So the higher ups arranged for this oh-so-unfortunate theft.
This was is politically safer for our corrupt leadership.
This theft was SUPPOSED to happen.
us arms given to the muslim brotherhood under the guise of being stolen...
This should not matter one iota to the traitor in the WH. He has shrugged off Fast and Furious. Shrugged off his waiving the restriction on giving weapons to terrorists. He’s not held to account to anything or anyone, so why not? Oh, and by the way, the Republicans (and Dems) that don’t move a muscle to stop this thug-in-thief are just as complicit, just as traitorous, and should perp-walked out of the Capitol in chains.
“Plus, if the arms are stolen then it was not illegal for Obama to give them.”
You’re right. All planned out.
What was that McCain was saying about ‘nothing to be afraid of with him as President’? Guess he was really talking to the Brotherhood.
Don’t worry folks. These are just being used to find out who the real bad guys are. They’re being tracked...
It all started under the Bush administration! /s
at least they didn’t fall into the hands of some radical tea party members.
Must have been, because I sure wasn’t buying it.
They probably were not stolen. They were most likely supplied by Obama.
No doubt this was Gifted to the Terrorists.
No wonder all the African Generals were canned. This kind of Treason takes planning.
Gifted is right. First, hussein said he would get his own army and if we brought knives, he’d bring guns and he’s been training it all along. Then hussein sent them billions in tax dollars. Then he set them up in the administration and head of government departments. Then he bought up contract after contract of foodstuffs and ammo. Then he set up more FEMA facilites with row upon row of coffins. Then the scandals. Then an entire warehouse of ammo disappeared and then a warehouse of weapons. Now, it’s vechicles which are a bit difficult to sneak off with in your back pocket. Nope, don’t worry yourselves. Nothing to see. Move along.
OK. Let’s see the court martial. One of my Soldiers on ammo guard misplaced a magazine with three .45 rounds in it for two hours and it was like a nuclear bomb had gone off. Somebody loses armored vehicles and they can’t be found? Where’s the court martial?
The worst part is that among the “lost” equipment were 100+ night vision goggles. One of the main advantages we have always had over our enemies is our ability to fight in the dark because of our night vision capabilities.
Now, we are not alone.
The NVG’s combined with the reflex sights on the “missing” M4 rifles will allow the bad guys to shoot and kill their targets in total darkness.
Anyone call OnStar? Surely, with GPS, they can’t be that hard to find.
no one has given the orders yet....
Correct, and since they were a gift, no one will be looking for them.
Sounds about right.
Yep. Why did we have Special Forces training people in Libya? This is the country that couldn’t protect our Ambassador and hasn’t been able to find the thugs that murdered four Americans. I think this might have been ransom paid to Libyan thugs. Has anybody seen those 30+ people from the second facility in Benghazi? It would be just like the chickens**t Democrats to lose some of our people to kidnappers and then pay off the kidnappers and say “Oops! We lost a bunch of stuff.”
I expect “gifted” is the right word. Otherwise they would have been destroyed from the air before the next day was over-——assuming the story is true at all. The whole notion that we were training troops for a barely functioning gov’t is a little wobbly at best. It could mostly be explained with some version of a wet dream had by Hillary, not a version of reality.
I wonder where he's going to put the Mexican/Libyan war front?
the U.S. Mil needs to change this entire parameter ASAP
the guys in the tree suits know what to do . Just do it
Bomb the F*** out of it. Jeez.
I was thinking Miami might be more of a midpoint, but Chicago does have awesome symbolism, and nobody would even notice if we dropped another war on that town.
The weapons are right where Obama and McCain wanted them to be to begin with. Simple treason.
What will have to happen here in America before something is done? Mall killings by Somalis? Muslims screaming “Thank God!”, er, I mean “Allah Akbar!” as they decapitate children? Muslims using suicide bombers in our Christian churches?
...if there was ever an example of no one knowing what is going on...it’s this administration
any ANY..other president would have either resigned or have been thrown out of office after what this clown has done...
But was this really a theft? Or did the Fed.gov GIVE the enemy the weapons, as they did in Operation Fast and Furious, and as they are now doing, in Syria? Of course, in the infamous words of Hillary Clinton: “What difference does it make?” LOL!!
And when they are used on American soil to kill dozens of innocent women, children and men? What then? Can we send Obama to prison then?
