President Obama  announced today that he would “waive the prohibitions in sections 40 and 40A  of the AECA related to such a transaction.” Those two sections of the Arms  Export Control Act make it illegal for our government to send weapons to nations  described in another section of the Act: “The prohibitions contained in this  section apply with respect to a country if the Secretary of State determines  that the government of that country has repeatedly provided support for acts of  international terrorism.” These provisions of the Act are supposed to  guarantee that our government will not arm or give aid to our enemies, and yet  here we have our President simply waiving the provisions the first time a case  that fits the circumstances presents itself.

The President, in all his wisdom, has waived these provisions and will begin  to arm the Syrian rebels — including terrorists — who hope to one day play a  role in our destruction. Al-Qaeda  is one of the strongest elements in the rebel ranks and there can be no  doubt that some of our weapons will fall into the hands of these terrorist  monsters… but the President is hell bent on arming the rebels, consequences be  damned.

The Act does provide provision for the President to waive these rules:  “determines that the transaction is essential to the national security interests  of the United States.” This section of the law is the reasoning the  administration provided for waiving the prohibition on supplying arms to our  enemies. “The transaction is essential to the national security interests of the  United States.” Nothing we’ve been provided by way of reasoning for involvement  in Syria justifies our involvement for national security purposes.

terroristrebelIn  fact, quite the opposite… what we’ve been told is that if Assad falls there is a  very real chance that weapons of mass destruction will fall into the hands of  terrorist groups bent on our destruction.

The national media has already reported that we’ve been providing material  support to the Syrian rebels, including al-Qaeda, for quite some time. Yet, for  some reason, they’ve failed to explain why the CIA was already providing weapons  and support to the Syrian rebels out of Benghazi. It’s becoming obvious that the  President never cared about the provisions of the Arms Export Control Act and  this recent action waiving the prohibition was simply to keep up  appearances.

Our President has spent the last five years ruling over us, instead of  leading us. He has been part of a climate shift in Washington, DC that has  turned our representatives into oligarchs. This is simply another piece of  evidence to add to the  growing pile of terrifying proof. Over the last few months the NSA  has shredded our 1st, 3rd and 4th Amendment rights.  The Justice  Department has trampled our 1st Amendment rights. The State  Department has lied to us and taken part in the cover-up of various  scandals, including the murder of 4 Americans in Benghazi. The  IRS has ignored our 1st Amendment freedoms and then dared to be  belligerent in the face of our questions. Many other agencies have taken part  with the ones already mentioned to undermine our freedoms and our values, while  pretending it’s for our own “good.” Now the President simply speaks and the law  is ignored while we give aid to our enemies.

This failure to follow our laws is simply another example in a long train of  abuses partaken by the government of the United States against the people of  this country. What are simple citizens who love their country supposed to do  when faced with such an unscrupulous and duplicitous government?
