Fast and Furious 2.0: British guns, vehicles stored at Benghazi likely fell into extremist’s hands
Some national security plan this administration has. When DOJ isn’t shipping guns to drug cartels in Mexico, the State Depart is leaving military weapons lying around with weak security in foreign countries with known extremist groups operating, despite calls from said facility for more security. Are we safer today than we were four years ago?
The answer seems to be, no!
Via Libya: – Telegraph.
British guns that were being stored in the ransacked US consulate in Benghazi are unaccounted for and feared to have fallen into the hands of extremists.
Foreign Office diplomats withdrew from the Libyan city in June following an assassination attempt on the British ambassador but reached an agreement with the US to leave weapons and vehicles at the American compound.
The lightly-guarded US site was overrun by Islamist militants in an attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans last month. The Foreign Office has confirmed to the Daily Telegraph that the equipment is still unaccounted for a month after the Benghazi assault.
Dozens of attackers tore through the American compound during the September 11 attack and since then Libyans have often roamed freely through its remains, raising the possibility that the British weapons have already been looted.
