Tulsi Gabbard Introduces Bill to Stop President Obama from Arming the Jihad
President Obama issued a directive on Dec. 8, authorizing delivery of lethal weapons to “foreign forces, irregular forces, groups, or individuals engaged in supporting or facilitating ongoing U.S. military operations to counter terrorism in Syria.” By doing so, he unilaterally waived the provisions of two defense Acts that prohibit such deliveries as well as financial assistance to countries that support terrorism.
In response, Democratic Representative Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii introduced a bipartisan bill the same day to block the Obama Administration's outrageous action. The "Stop Arming Terrorists Act" (SATA) is co-sponsored by Democrats Peter Welch of Vermont and Barbara Lee of California, and Republicans Dana Rohrabacher of California and Thomas Massie of Kentucky.
It would, Gabbard said,
"prohibit any Federal agency from using taxpayer dollars to provide weapons, cash, intelligence, or any support to al-Qaeda, ISIS and other terrorist groups," and also "prohibit the government from funneling money and weapons through other countries who are directly or indirectly supporting terrorists."
"Under U.S. law it is illegal for any American to provide money or assistance to al-Qaeda, ISIS or other terrorist groups. If you or I gave money, weapons or support to al-Qaeda or ISIS, we would be thrown in jail,” Gabbard charged. “Yet the U.S. government has been violating this law for years, quietly supporting allies and partners of al-Qaeda, ISIL, Jabhat Fateh al Sham and other terrorist groups with money, weapons, and intelligence support, in their fight to overthrow the Syrian government."
Indeed, President Obama's last-gasp decision is tantamount to an open admission that his Administration, and elements of the US intelligence establishment, have been in bed with jihadist terrorists all along – and is now working to create a nightmare situation for the incoming Administration, in which it becomes impossible for the US to disengage from the permanent wars of the past 15 years.
