Who in the Wide, wide world of sports could have seen this coming?

I mean, who would have thought that giving arms to Libyan rebels would end up in the hands of terrorists?

Certainly not the brain trust that is the 0bama administration.

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year, but American officials later grew alarmed as evidence grew that Qatar was turning some of the weapons over to Islamic militants, according to United States officials and foreign diplomats.

BUT! There is good news in this- gotta spin it for your team any way you can, right NYT?

 No evidence has emerged linking the weapons provided by the Qataris during the uprising against Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi to the attack that killed four Americans at the United States diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in September.

And we're stuck with these hapless f*cks until at least 2016.

**********Extra points for whoever can identify who used the title phrase.


  1. That last sentence would translate in the Whitehouse / Truth translationator as "We stopped asking questions before we found out anything more unpleasant and inconvenient!"

  2. Slim Pickens, as Taggart, in "Blazing Saddles".

    I notice in this world of remakes of classic movies that "Blazing Saddles" has not come up as a remake candidate.

    I can't imagine why...

  3. It will... after the Jetsons movie.
