The Obama Administration Finally Agrees To Arm The Kurds (Video)

Charles Krauthammer has been hammering this point for weeks – arm the Kurds, they’re running low on supplies, but they’re fierce fighters and US allies who want to fight ISIS. But the Obama administration only wanted to go through the dysfunctional Iraqi government.

Finally someone in the administration caught a clue.

The Obama administration has begun directly providing weapons to Kurdish forces who have started to make gains against Islamic militants in northern Iraq, senior U.S. officials said Monday.

Previously, the U.S. had insisted on only selling arms to the Iraqi government in Baghdad, but the Kurdish peshmerga fighters had been losing ground to Islamic State militants in recent weeks.

The officials wouldn’t say which U.S. agency is providing the arms or what weapons are being sent, but one official said it isn’t the Pentagon. The CIA has historically done similar quiet arming operations.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the operation publicly.

 

According to Fox News, the US military is providing heavy weapons.

Our Southern Border Is So Insecure – Osama Bin Laden Could Cross – And Did

Actually – it’s Project Veritas’ James O’keefe dressed as Osama Bin Laden.

This video is humiliating politicians into action. American can no longer accept that there isn’t an illegal immigration crisis and that the border is secure.

Governor Rick Perry told the president about a month ago that the border patrol was stationed 40 miles away from the border, and he noted in interviews that Obama didn’t know and didn’t seem to care about it.

But where’s the National Guard Governor Perry deployed? I queried O’Keefe on Twitter about the timing of his video. Was it shot before or after the deployment of the Guard. Because if it was shot after – Obama isn’t the only one who should be embarrassed. I’ll update with the answer.
