Trump conflates all Muslims with Saudi Arabian thugs

A few months ago we were told to digest the fact that Saudi Arabia was giving U.S. weapons to Al Qaeda in Yemen. Our Defense Department said they would look into it. Where are we now?

Elizabeth Warren demanded answers. Where we are now? We are now at Trump conflating Rep. Omar with 9/11 terrorists as he consorts with Al Qaeda's sponsors.

WHY IS SAUDI ARABIA GIVING U.S. WEAPONS TO AL-QAEDA? ELIZABETH WARREN ASKS TRUMP ADMINISTRATION
BY TOM O'CONNOR ON 2/22/19

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has issued a letter demanding that President Donald Trump's administration explain a recent report suggesting Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates transferred U.S. weapons to Al-Qaeda...

Warren's letter came in response to an investigation by CNN, which uncovered reports earlier this month that Saudi Arabia and its ally, the UAE, have taken weapons provided by the U.S. and given them to fighters linked to the Sunni Muslim militant group Al-Qaeda...

"If this report is true, it raises serious concerns that Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and other governments have violated their end user agreements with the United States by diverting American weapons to terrorists and other extremists without prior authorization from the United States," Warren said, as reported Friday by CNN.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates transferred U.S. weapons to Al-Qaeda.

How can our government justify killing our adversaries unless we create them? The best part is....they don't have to justify it anymore.

Regardless of the path in life I chose, I realize it's always forward, never straight.

that the Sauds and the Gulf states support Al Qaeda and ISIS. Otherwise he wouldn't be dancing and cavorting around with their leadership.

VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN

… Joe Biden spoke to Qatar’s ruler, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thari, in April of 2013, about his support for the extremists. One of Biden’s closest advisers said that the vice president told the emir, “If you gave me a choice between Assad and Nusra, I’ll take Assad.” Biden went public at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government on October 2, 2014:

"Our allies in the region were our largest problem in Syria. The Turks . . . the Saudis, the Emiratis, etc. What were they doing? They were so determined to take down Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni–­Shia war, what did they do? They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens of thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad. Except that the people who were being supplied were al-­Nusra and Al Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world."

THE DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE AGENCY

… Astoundingly, the newly declassified report states that for “THE WEST, GULF COUNTRIES, AND TURKEY [WHO] SUPPORT THE [SYRIAN] OPPOSITION… THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A DECLARED OR UNDECLARED SALAFIST PRINCIPALITY IN EASTERN SYRIA (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE SUPPORTING POWERS TO THE OPPOSITION WANT, IN ORDER TO ISOLATE THE SYRIAN REGIME…”.

Sorry Liz, was having a hard time remembering that you supposedly hate war, after you were kissing so much Saudi ass on Syria. No wait, You were AGAINST the war, because Trump was... no wait, you were FOR it, because Trump was against it.

I know it's hard to remember. That was almost 4 months ago, after all.

/snark

So, honestly, I think the big takeaway is that not one of our elected officials knows anything about what's going on over there, and hence...

UNITED STATES ARMY, WILL YOU PLEASE GO NOW?
