Def-Con News: Democrats have a lot of anger and it’s so preoccupying that they don’t have time to get their facts straight before expressing it. This is why there is an almost constant stream of rage against President Trump for things Barack Obama did. Remember those pictures of immigrant kids in cages? The latest in this fact-free outrage comes from Senator Chris Murphy who ripped Trump for selling weapons to the Saudis that have now fallen into the hands of Al Qaeda. The only problem is, those weapons were sold when Obama was president, but I’m sure Trump is so evil he can retroactively make bad things happen.
CNN dropped this thing today: Sold to an ally, lost to an enemy
The US shipped weapons and secrets to the Saudis and Emiratis. Now, some are in the hands of fighters linked to al Qaeda and Iran.
Saudi Arabia and its coalition partners have transferred American-made weapons to al Qaeda-linked fighters, hardline Salafi militias, and other factions waging war in Yemen, in violation of their agreements with the United States, a CNN investigation has found.
The weapons have also made their way into the hands of Iranian-backed rebels battling the coalition for control of the country, exposing some of America’s sensitive military technology to Tehran and potentially endangering the lives of US troops in other conflict zones.
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy, a democrat of course, was furious over this report and tweeted out his rage:
BOMBSHELL REPORT. The “beautiful military equipment” Trump sold Saudi Arabia and UAE is now in the hands of Al Qaeda aligned militias. One group drives U.S. made armored vehicles now. This is what happens when you flood a war zone with more weapons.
But obviously Murphy’s outrage was so intense that he couldn’t be bothered to click on the link he tweeted or read the article that got him so hot under the collar. If he had actually read the article, he might have noticed these details:
