The Real T.S.A.

The United States of America is now a state sponsor of terrorism.
We are now the Terrorist States of America.
Afghan forces are facing a massive rise in casualties, as the Taliban ramps up attacks there during the U.S. withdrawal.
As the so-called "Arab Spring" continues to shake up the Middle East region, with Egyptian Muslims slaughtering Christians almost on a daily basis (and when they aren't killing them, they're forcing them to convert to Islam under threat of death), and the civil war in Syria still ongoing, you have to wonder, whose side is America on now? It wasn't that long ago that President Bush was mocked for telling the world "Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists," yet that 'red line' was enough to illicit a clear response from Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, who shortly thereafter gave up his nation's weapons of mass destruction and made a show of ramping down his nation's support for Islamofascist terrorists.
But the Obama administration has repeatedly encouraged those same Arab Spring factions who now are out there killing and forcibly converting Christians across the Middle East. They encouraged change in Egypt, but don't seem to care about the death and destruction that change has wrought. They allowed four Americans to die in Benghazi last year, and are still working to cover up the details even today. The best working theory as to why is that the administration was engaged in a gunrunning scheme to traffic weapons from Libya, through Turkey, and into Syria, to aid the Syrian rebels in their war.
President Obama's support for the rebels in Syria became much more transparent when he began pushing to attack the Syrian government over a chemical weapons attack that still has yet to be definitively linked to the Assad regime. This was a move that could very easily have landed us in World War III, what with Russia, China and Iran coming out on the side of Assad, and the Obama administration standing pretty much alone on his push to attack ' lacking even the support of most Americans. It was only through overwhelming public opposition and a firm diplomatic spanking administered by Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin that President Obama gave up his plans to attack Assad.
But it's President Obama's actions since he gave up on his push for war in Syria & accepted Russia's counter-proposal that truly call into question whether our nation fighting for the right side anymore. Last week, as most of the nation was fixated on the shooting at the Washington, D.C. Naval Yard, President Obama waived a part of federal law designed to prevent the United States from supplying arms to terrorist groups. This was done for the express purpose of shielding the Obama administration from criminal prosecution as they supply arms to the Syrian rebels, whom both President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have publicly acknowledged include members of Al-Qaida.
What does this mean? Thanks to President Barack Hussein Obama, the United States of America is now a state sponsor of terrorism.
For all of his moral posturing regarding a chemical weapons attack that still has not been definitively tied back to the Assad regime, President Obama has shown no hesitancy when it comes to arming Syria's "rebels," many of whom are affiliated with Al-Qaida. These rebels have themselves admitted to using chemical weapons in a blatant attempt to draw the United States into their war ' and that is on top of their documented acts of cannibalism and the slaughter of children in some of the most horrific ways imaginable. It only makes it worse that while the Obama administration is openly arming Al-Qaida terrorists in Syria, President Obama is still pushing to revoke the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding U.S. citizens.
This administration can no longer claim any moral high ground on any issue. At this point, it's only a question of how long it will be before the president who provided material support to enemies of the United States finally faces impeachment.
