Like the situation with Syria where our government so desperately wanted to fight alongside al-Qaeda?

Benghazi attack could have been prevented if US hadn't 'switched sides in the War on Terror' and allowed $500 MILLION of weapons to reach al-Qaeda militants, reveals damning report

  • Citizens Committee on Benghazi claims the US government allowed arms to flow to al-Qaeda-linked militants who opposed Muammar Gaddafi
  • Their rise to power, the group says, led to the Benghazi attack in 2012
  • The group claims the strongman Gaddafi offered to abdicate his presidency, but the US refused to broker his peaceful exit
  • The commission, part of the center-right Accuracy In Media group, concluded that the Benghazi attack was a failed kidnapping plot
  • US Ambassador Chris Stevens was to be captured and traded for 'blind sheikh' Omar Abdel-Rahman, who hatched the 1993 WTC bombing plot

'The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,' Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

Our foreign policy has been so retarded you just gotta laugh.

One minute we are vigorously arming/aiding one group...then we end up fighting them...then we want to go back to sending them arms...then they use those arms against us..its like a giant cycle of idiocy.

This is what happens when you feel you have to be involved with everything, everywhere, with everyone, at all times.

It's what happens when leadership bases foreign policy on "polls".
