    Heh. So Egypt’s new President is going to correct the mistakes of the past, eh?

    When your country is over four thousand years old, that’s a lot of “past” in which to rummage for mistakes.

    I see he’s getting a “chilly” reception from the US, in contrast to our embrace of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Morsi.

    Doug Ross has a story on the Stinger missile that shot down a Chinook chopper in Afghanistan not so long ago. Turns out they recovered a fragment with an intact serial number.

    This thing was no remnant from the ’80s, it is of modern vintage and requisitioned by CIA. Not confirmed yet, but it is suspected it was part of a shipment bound for Libyan rebels in 2011 that was sent through . . . Qatar.

    That would have been the safe bet. They may as well install a sign over the front door: “MuBros and Radicals only – Everyone else use the back”

    Makes Ollie North’s Nicaraguan scheme look like chump change.

    Really? The North scheme put Hawk missiles into Iranian hands. You might want to compare the capabilities of the Stinger and the Hawk.
