Obama Lost Tons of Guns and Ammo and 2,300 Humvees to ISIS

Obama gave 2,300 Humvees and other armored vehicles to the Iraqis at a cost of $579 million of our tax dollars. Now they are all in the hands of ISIS after the Iraqi city of Mosul fell.

Along with the Humvees, ISIS got thousands of guns and tons of ammunition given to the Iraqis. By refusing to fight ISIS, it was Obama who essentially supplied ISIS with thousands of tons of war supplies.

raqi security forces lost 2,300 Humvee armored vehicles when ISIS overran the northern city of Mosul, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Sunday.

“In the collapse of Mosul, we lost a lot of weapons,” Abadi said in an interview with Iraqiya state TV. “We lost 2,300 Humvees in Mosul alone.”

While the exact price of the vehicles varies depending on how they are armored and equipped, it is clearly a hugely expensive loss that has boosted ISIS’s capabilities.

Last year, the State Department approved a possible sale to Iraq of 1,000 Humvees with increased armor, machineguns, grenade launchers, other gear and support that was estimated to cost $579 million.

Clashes began in Mosul, Iraq’s second city, late on June 9, 2014, and Iraqi forces lost it the following day to ISIS, which spearheaded an offensive that overran much of the country’s Sunni Arab heartland.

The militants gained ample arms, ammunition and other equipment when multiple Iraqi divisions fell apart in the country’s north, abandoning gear and shedding uniforms in their haste to flee.

But remember… Obama says we are winning against ISIS.

ISIS is a creation of the military industrial complex.
Just another boogey man because it has become obvious to anyone with half a brain there are no terrorists to speak of. Only those who sit in Washington DC.

Wow great strategy. Send equipment to Iraq. Lose it to ISIS and then have our troops blow it up and then raise our taxes so we can send more equipment.You ask how Obama lost this stuff? Get real yourself. It's his policy and strategy.

This situation works out extremely well for the military contractors! Give it away, blow it up, buy some more.

Military contractors and ISIS are good for each other. I wander if one created the other?

He didn't lose this material because it was part of his plan to arm ISIS. The man is a criminal, a liar, a traitor, a racist and does not abide by the Constitution. He should be impeached. Even our own allies can no longer trust him so why should we??
