Op-Ed Says Obama Administration Is Arming Terrorists

posted on December 2, 2015

While anti-gun forces continue to make the disingenuous claim that the NRA is “arming the terrorists” by upholding due process for Americans whose names have appeared on FBI watch lists, a new editorial on The Hill points out that the Obama administration is not just wrong, but hypocritical to point the finger at Second Amendment advocates. 

Operation Fast and Furious involved intentionally funneling illegal arms to Mexico in an attempt to expose trafficking networks. The Obama administration has been keen to suppress details about this operation, which had the effect of arming criminals whose methods in many respects mirror those of ISIS. For all the talk about “arming the terrorists,” it appears that the only ones who have done so here operate from within the highest circles of our government.
