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.
