There are “fears that the weaponry, aircraft and equipment is at risk of being seized by Iranian-backed rebels or al-Qaeda, according to U.S. officials.” Combine this with the weapons Obama gave to “moderate rebels” in Syria that are now being used by the Islamic State, and the U.S. has provided weapons to a significant segment of the global jihad.

The most transparent admin ever is back at it!
Via USA Today:
WASHINGTON — The White House is removing a federal regulation that subjects its Office of Administration to the Freedom of Information Act, making official a policy under Presidents Bush and Obama to reject all requests for records to that office.
The White House said the clean-up of FOIA regulations is consistent with court rulings that hold that the office is not subject to the transparency law. The office handles, among other things, White House record-keeping duties like the archiving of e-mails.
But the timing of the move raised eyebrows among transparency advocates, coming on National Freedom of Information Day and during a national debate over the preservation of Obama administration records. It’s also Sunshine Week, an effort by news organizations and watchdog groups to highlight issues of government transparency.
“The irony of this being Sunshine Week is not lost on me,” said Anne Weismann of the liberal Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW.
Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is burning out of control like an unchecked forest fire and it doesn’t appear that relief is on the way anytime soon.
According to Stephen Hayes, a senior writer at the Weekly Standard, two of Clinton’s top aides had access to and used her personal email account while they were all employed at the State Department.
He specifically mentioned Clinton’s trusted aide for twenty years, Huma Abedin, a woman with known ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
As most of our readers know, one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s core objectives is to, “destroy Western civilization from within.”
Having access to the Secretary of State’s personal email correspondence with leading government officials around the world is certainly a good way to begin that process.
Hayes’ main question concerning Abedin’s access to Clinton’s account was if they were discussing federal business between personal accounts, containing classified information, including critical information about Benghazi.

Prior to the 2014 mid-term elections, Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee claimed it’s “un-American” for Barack Obama to consider implementing an executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens across the country.
Priebus said: “We will do everything we can to make sure it doesn’t happen: Defunding, going to court, injunction. You name it. It’s wrong. It’s illegal. And for so many reasons, and just the basic fabric of this country, we can’t allow it to happen and we won’t let it happen. I don’t know how to be any stronger than that. I’m telling you, everything we can do to stop it we will.”
Given what has transpired since the election, how eagerly the Republican leadership capitulated, if not enthusiastically facilitated the funding and implementation of Obama’s “illegal” executive amnesty; one can easily conclude that Priebus must have known what he was saying was not true or he was completely out of touch with the plans of the Republican Congressional leadership.
I think he was lying to get votes.
