Just another example of the positive vibes given off by the peaceful, tranquil, post-revolutionary (or maybe not so much) Libya that the Obama administration has created. I'm sure Israel is thrilled. From ABC News
Some of the thousands of surface-to-air missiles that have gone missing since the collapse of the Gadhafi regime in Libya have now turned up just miles from the Israeli border.
U.S. officials say there were 20,000 Russian-made anti-aircraft missiles in Libya before the uprising, and thousands have disappeared in the looting of Moammar Gadhafi's arm caches. According to the Washington Post, many of those Russian-made anti-aircraft weapons are being sold in Egyptian black markets, and so many are available the price has dropped from $10,000 to $4,000.
Egyptian officials told the paper they have intercepted looted Libyan weapons, including anti-aircraft guns, missiles and artillery, on the road from Libya into Egypt, in black markets on the Sinai Peninsua, and in the smuggling tunnels between the Sinai and Gaza.
The heat-seeking surface-to-air missiles, most of them shoulder-fired, have a range of two miles and would pose a threat to Israeli helicopter and planes on either side of the Israel-Gaza border.
Now whatever would they be doing there? Could it be that some enterprising jihadi entity, Iran perhaps, took advantage of the chaos in Libya to acquire weapons for its proxy, Hamas, in Gaza?
Heckuva job, Barry.
