Rand Paul: Obama in guns-to-jihadists cover-up?


Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., raised questions during a radio interview today about whether the Obama administration was smuggling guns to jihadist rebels in a possible “international Fast and Furious” that the White House has tried to cover up.

Speaking on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s WABC Radio, Paul said the guns scheme could help explain the reason for the coordinated attacks against the U.S. special mission and CIA annex in Benghazi last September.

Stated Paul: “There is also some concern about whether or not Libyan arms are being ferried through Turkey into Syrian rebels and whether or not that had something to do with the cover-up that came out of the administration when the administration was saying that, ‘Oh, this attack in Benghazi had something to do with a film.’

“Maybe that was to cover up that there was some kind of gun smuggling going on over there, some kind of international fast and furious was going on in Libya and that this was a cover-up,” Paul continued. “These are some of the questions that we are going to have for Hillary Clinton when she comes before our committee.

“I am very concerned about the president giving arms to Syrian rebels,” Paul told Klein.

The politician, who will serve on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the U.S.-backed rebels in Syria include jihadists tied to al-Qaida.

“There’s about a million Christians in Syria, one of the largest populations of Christians are in Syria. They are not necessarily siding with the rebels because many of the rebels are extremist radical Islamists such as Al-Nusra elements of al-Qaida. And there is concern that the Christians will not be tolerated, will be wiped out if the rebels win,” Paul said.

Many rebel fighters are openly members of terrorist organizations, including al-Qaida.

Immediately following the Benghazi attacks, President Obama and other White House officials notoriously blamed supposed anti-American sentiment leading to the violent events on an obscure anti-Muhammad video on YouTube they claimed was responsible for supposedly popular civilian protests that they said took place outside the U.S. mission – protests, they claimed, that devolved into a jihadist onslaught.

However, vivid accounts provided by the State Department and intelligence officials later made clear no such popular demonstration took place. Instead, video footage from Benghazi reportedly shows an organized group of armed men attacking the compound, officials said.

WND has filed numerous reports quoting Middle East security officials describing the mission in Benghazi as serving as a meeting place to coordinate aid for the rebel-led insurgencies in the Middle East.

Among the tasks performed inside the building was collaborating with Arab countries on the recruitment of fighters – including jihadists – to target Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria, the officials said.

  1. This topic definitely needs to be explored more. I have been concerned for some time that the US have been providing arms to Syrian jihadists, who have been terrorizing Syrian Christians. Kudos to Sen. Paul for bringing this up.

  2. Rand Paul find your ‘balls’ get off your ‘ass’ quite all this talk talk talk and PLEASE do something…Isn’t anyone in the Government or any part of Political Hell Hole (you supposedly represent) going to stand up FOR THE PEOPLE?? This is absurd

    • Lacey Sen Paul is doing something he is sounding the alarm. Now it our turn, we must spread the message and create a huge public outcry that demands this be investigated fully. Our Reps can only do so much by themselves sometimes they need our support and our help. So stop asking the government to do for you it makes you sound like a liberal. Get off your backside and spread the message talk to your friends and family write your Representatives organize through your clubs, churches, and civic groups. It is suppose to be a government of the people by the people that makes us all part of the government. So when you ask “Isn’t anyone in the Government going to stand up for the people” I ask well are you?

  3. BHO has for second time given his legal oath to uphold our Constitution. It’s time to have him arrested and convicted for TREASON! NO MORE WASTED TIME! DO IT!
