    10,000-20,000 shoulder fired rockets go missing in Libya

    Heard the congressional hearing excerpt on the radio this morning. Nothing on YouTube yet. If one of these brings down a passenger airliner in Europe. This looks to be the smoking gun for the White House deflection/outright lie that the ambassadors, security detail deaths were due to a video.

    Edit: regular RPGs? The excerpt of Dennis kucinich talking was specifically talking about sams so who knows.

    I stayed up until 11 pm last night watching the hearings on CSPAN.

    The Congressman asked how many shoulder fired missiles capable of bringing down an airliner were "out there", "on the loose", or whatever term he used.

    The witness answered (with what seemed like a pregnant pause to gulp another lung full of air): "Ten to twenty......thousand."

    The way the question was answered just made your sphincter pucker in new and chilling ways.

    Tens of thousands of MANPADS unaccounted for? Our foreign aid dollars well spent.

    We've known these were in the wind for quite some time now. The second, more heavily fortified clandestine location in Benghazi that was revealed publicly by the DoS in yesterday's hearings was the base of operations for DoS efforts to recover as many of them as possible.

    This is a catastrophe waiting to happen.

    I hope Romney's people are watching this..Another excellant example of how well Barry has done in the middle east..This would make a interesting topic of discussion during the next debate, seeing how's it's going to be on Foreign Policy...
