The United States Has Been Arming ISIS for Years

Remember when the Obama administration was so obsessed with gun control that they on purpose sent a bunch of illegal and high powered weapons to Mexican drug cartels just so they could track the guns? Well, this is like that, except instead of giving automatic weapons to murderous peddlers of illicit substances, we have been giving military grade weapons, including artillery, tanks, and munitions, to murderous terrorists who want to destroy our whole country.

(CNN)A new report from a prominent human rights group has found that ISIS has built a substantial arsenal, including U.S.-made weapons obtained from the Iraqi army and Syrian opposition groups.

The findings come as President Barack Obama has recommitted to leaning on regional forces, including the Iraqis, Kurds and Syrian opposition, to try to wipe out ISIS rather than committing significant numbers of U.S. ground troops.

These local forces will receive assistance in the form of weapons, backup via coalition airstrikes and training from U.S. special operations forces.

The Amnesty International report, however, concluded that it was these local forces that had inadvertently contributed arms to ISIS.

This particular horror show also includes the probably unsurprising revelation that a huge portion of the equipment that we left behind in the hands of the Iraqi army when we bravely fled under the leadership of Obama is now in ISIS hands. This equipment includes tanks, artillery, shells, anti-tank missiles, and surface to air missiles.

Most awesomely, it turns out the rebel groups that we have been giving huge quantities of weapons to have been turning around and selling those weapons to ISIS. So all of that displays pretty great planning on the Obama administration’s part, in terms of finding out who we should have been teaming up with in the region.

For a guy who is so hell bent on keeping American citizens from owning a handgun unless they can pass a vigorous background check, a mental health exam, the bar exam, and also qualify for a security clearance from DHS, Obama sure has been indifferent as to who gets, you know, TANKS – free of charge from the United States Government.
