Sen. Rand Paul says the Obama administration may have been smuggling guns to jihadists in a scheme similar to the Fast & Furious scheme which has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Mexican citizens.
Paul was on WABC’s “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” and said:
“There is also some concern about whether or not Libyan arms are being ferried through Turkey into Syrian rebels and whether or not that had something to do with the cover-up that came out of the administration when the administration was saying that, ‘Oh, this attack in Benghazi had something to do with a film.’
“Maybe that was to cover up that there was some kind of gun smuggling going on over there, some kind of international fast and furious was going on in Libya and that this was a cover-up,” Paul continued. “These are some of the questions that we are going to have for Hillary Clinton when she comes before our committee.
“I am very concerned about the president giving arms to Syrian rebels,” Paul told Klein.
“There’s about a million Christians in Syria, one of the largest populations of Christians are in Syria. They are not necessarily siding with the rebels because many of the rebels are extremist radical Islamists such as Al-Nusra elements of al-Qaida. And there is concern that the Christians will not be tolerated, will be wiped out if the rebels win,” Paul said.
Many rebel fighters are openly members of terrorist organizations, including al-Qaida.
