Those were my exact words, DC. 
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Exactly DCP... Sheese.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

I believe there are two inaccuracies here: (1) that the administration did not know it was funding Al Qaeda; and (2) that congress did not authorize the operation.  It would be the height of naivete, after Egypt and Libya, not to know that Muslim extremists were involved in the Syrian rebellion.  The reason no one in congress is interested in aggressively pursuing this matter is probably because congressional leadership was briefed on the operation and approved of it.

I said it was an illegal arms depot as we all 'watched' in real time.

I think you are spot on correct massadvj.  That's why nothing will ever be done about it.

What's truly stunning is the number of people who are going to find this to be, well, stunning.

This makes it even more egregious (if that's possible) that the Benghazi facility defense wasn't beefed up.

One more time for the record.  Here's what happened:

The CIA was moving arms the Syrian rebels out of Benghazi. Putin found out about it and through back channels (No official records of such comms likely exist) let Obozo know that they were going to roll the operation up and that if he (Obozo) knew what was good for him he would stay the hell out of the way! They did and Obozo did exactly as he was instructed.
Bigun: Maybe you can help me out with this.
Given the following:
1..The Syrian rebels were backed by al qaeda..is that right?
2..The Benghazi embassy, or whatever it was, was attacked by al qaeda..is that right?
If this is so, why did al qaeda attack the source of their supply for arms in Syria??

anyone, anyone???

Has this been verified..
To Clear things up...

Mueller has been one of the most respected individuals on the planet over the last 20 years.

Mueller is a Republican

Mueller was appointed by Republicans

Mueller doesn't determine if someone is guilty, The Judge and Jury do!

"The weapons in this case were not going to those forces ...."
If not to Al Qaeda and the rebels, where were the weapons going?

SOME of the Syrian rebels were backed by Al quaedi but by no means ALL of them. The weapons in this case were not going to those forces but the Syrians and their Russian allies did not want, and refused to allow, these particular weapons to get to ANY of them!

Bang on, as usual brother!  :beer:

I'd say less than 25% of the rebels are AQ affiliated. The vast majority of them are something far more dangerous - pissed off people who have just had enough.

Interesting idea.

Pissed off people who have had enough are far more dangerous than terrorists.

Interesting.
