I Agree With Hillary

What does it matter?  A USA Ambassador gets himself whacked while gun-running to al-Qaeda.

'The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,' Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.She blamed the Obama administration for failing to stop half of a $1 billion United Arab Emirates arms shipment from reaching al-Qaeda-linked militants.

What?  He did not know gun-running to the enemy is risky business?   This was extremely marginal adventurism that does not pay off one way or another, and could not.  All the actors in a whimsical if lethal scam are now dead. So what does it matter?

You'd think an Ambassador would think it through: "What will happen if gun-running to al-Qaeda goes awry?"  He probably thought like Fast and Furious, nothing would happen.  Perhaps the State Department needs me to lecture on geopolitics.  Neither Russia nor China will tolerate regime change in Syria.  The team that whacked the Ambassador and company were pros.  USA Ambassadors need to be apprised of geopolitics before they are let out into the fields.  (Not to mention being personally involved in the movement of arms in gun-running operations. Now that's ambition!)

What is interesting is none of this is new, only that it is exposed.  How come?  To,  as the article states. "blame Obama?"  Maybe that is the whole point.
