Geraldo Rivera, one of Fox News Channel’s resident leftists – who also thinks he can do talk radio – told the Fox and Friends crew today that his sources informed him that the U.S. was funneling shoulder-fired missiles out of Libya to Syria through Turkey.
That last part about going through Turkey is very important when it comes to Hillary Clinton.
Here’s Geraldo, via The BLaze:
Let’s not forget how Hillary responded to questions from Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) on this very subject at the January 23rd Senate hearing. Take note at about the 2:20 mark. When Paul asks her about weapons being shipped to Turkey out of Libya, Clinton is nearly apoplectic when she says in response, “to Turkey?” as if to suggest the question is out of left field.
Paul then gets Hillary to admit to having no knowledge of any such operation. As the New York Times later pointed out, Hillary was the one who drew up such a strategy.
If she did know the answer to Paul’s question – either way – it would have been perjury to say she didn’t know:
Of course, bolstering the argument that Hillary’s expression of surprise was nothing more than feigned surprise is a Reuters report released about a week after her testimony:
A plan developed last summer by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and then-CIA Director David Petraeus to arm and train Syrian rebels was rebuffed by the White House, The New York Times reported on Saturday.
The United States has sent humanitarian aid to Syria but has declined requests for weapons by rebels fighting to overthrow the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
“Last summer” likely would have meant prior to September 11th, right? Who was it that Christopher Stevens was meeting with right before he was killed?
Oh, yeah, the Turkish Consul General, Ali Sait Akin.
