"Libyan government fighters discovered a cache of powerful American missiles, usually sold only to close American allies, at a captured rebel base in the mountains south of Tripoli this week."
The four Javelin anti-tank missiles, which cost more than $170,000 each... Markings on the missiles shipping containers indicate that they were originally sold to the United Arab Emirates, an important American partner, in 2008. "

I am shocked!
I’m surprised the UAE didn’t declare them “missing.” They can blame the post office, or FedEx.
That’s funny. And extremely sad at the same time.
I’m sure Hillary is laughing.
“The Clinton Foundation accepted millions of dollars from seven foreign governments during Hillary Rodham Clintons tenure as secretary of state”
“Most of the contributions were possible because of exceptions written into the foundations 2008 agreement”
“A review of foundation disclosures shows that at least two foreign governments Germany and the United Arab Emirates began giving in 2013 after the funding restrictions lapsed when Clinton left the Obama administration.”
The Turkish and UN-backed Islamist government seems to be winning this round against General Haftar, the US-, Russian- and Arab-backed secularist.
Well, I sure they were Obama's allies..
Obama legacyask Hillary about them, again
What a waste of Javelins. We give our guy Haftar, a former general under Gaddafi and a US citizen who spent decades in Virginia, expensive weaponry, but he can’t find a way to win.
Not sold through Hillery and Stevens, but because Islam is not a Nation but an Empire. We make a common mistake of viewing our enemies by our own standards.
This misunderstanding is why selling weapons to any Islamic state is inadvisable. Inevitably we are far more their end goal target than their fellow Jihadi.
[Well, I sure they were Obama’s allies.. ]
Without Uncle Sam’s flying artillery to improve the odds, it could take Haftar years to win. And that’s if he has what it takes.
That laugh. No. Not THAT laugh!
it’s ok, someone wiped the missiles with a cloth.....
I wonder how much of a cut the Clinton foundation got....
What say ye Obama? Or does it matter since your administration was perfect in every respect?????
Maybe the Libyans dont want to give their support to the CIA? Just thinking out loud.
An investigation is being carried out. Christopher Stevens remains unavailable for questioning.
No name also unavailable for questioning
Hmm...didn’t the UAE also supply many of the FN-FAL rifles that turned up in Libya, and later Syria?
