Iran-Backed Militias Getting Weapons Meant for Iraqi Army

This is what happens when you cut and run and leave weapons in the hands of a (former) enemy you should have completely destroyed in the first place.

From News Max.

U.S. weapons intended for Iraq’s embattled military are winding up in the hands of Shiite militias backed by Iran, Bloomberg reports.

Obama administration officials and U.S. lawmakers say the Baghdad government, which received $1.2 billion in training and equipment assistance in the omnibus spending bill passed by Congress last month, has been turning military hardware over to the militias.

A senior administration official told Bloomberg’s Josh Rogin and Eli Lake that the U.S. government is aware of this but is caught in a dilemma. Iraqi security forces are unable to fight ISIS without the assistance of the militias, who are sometimes commanded by officers of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps.

But if Washington were to stop arming the Iraqi military, the situation would get even worse, with ISIS overrunning even more of Iraq and committing atrocities on an even larger scale. The official said the risk of failing to help the Baghdad government was greater than the risk of doing so.

The official said that although the new Iraqi government under Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi has been more responsive to U.S. concerns over transferring weapons than the previous government headed by Nouri al-Maliki, it has not been vigilant enough.

Evidence of that can be seen on Facebook, where members of Iraqi Shiite militias proudly display American arms, such as this photo from October of an M1A1 Abrams tank draped in a Hezbollah flag…..

Speaking on the record, White House and Pentagon officials deny there is any problem with regard to Baghdad’s transferring weapons.

Of course there’s no problem.  Members of the Iraqi military are probably selling the weapons to the terrorists on the black market and arming the very shitbags that they’re supposed to be fighting.
The U.S. Army ‘security, support, and advisory’ troops that have been dispatched to Iraq as part of Obama’s scrambling to put a band-aid on a gaping wound, will likely face these weapons as well.
Obama’s idiocy provides opportunity for Al Qaeda, ISIS, Khorazan, and every other muzzie terrorist faction battling over what is left of Iraq.
Speaking of idiocy, Obama sent a secret letter to Iran’s Supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and basically told him that if Iran helps fight ISIS in Iraq that he will cut him some slack over Iran’s WMDs.  Look how well Obama’s ass kissing has worked out.
He was in such a hurry to withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan, and when that proved to be a stupid move, he blamed it on Bush.
Well, you know what I’d have done….
