Theft Of Us Weapons In Libya Involved Hundreds Of Guns

Recommended Posts

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.

..

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.

Along with the GMV's, hundreds of weapons are now missing, including roughly 100 Glock pistols and more than 100 M4 rifles. More disturbing, according to the sources, is that it seems almost every set of night-vision goggles has also been taken. This is advanced technology that gives very few war fighters an advantage on the battlefield.

Excellent news for the terror groups.

You can buy pretty much all that stuff on the civilian market in the us.

Not the (alleged) SAMs though...

Daily Mail: 400 US surface-to-air missiles were 'STOLEN' from Libya during the Benghazi attack and are 'now in the hands of Al Qaeda', claims whistleblower

This Benghazi business is going to run, and run.

edit:

I know people with trackers fitted to their 5 grand motorbikes. It's almost like this was meant to happen.

You wouldn't have been reading seditious, unpatriotic rumours on the Internet by any chance? That sort of thing ought to be banned.

edit #2:

The world would be a worse off, more dangerous place if the CIA never existed. Discuss.

Nor military-grade NVGs.

Actually, you might be able to buy them--I can't forget the precise restrictions on sale--but you can't legally export them.
