Evidence Suggests Biden Administration Fueled Attack on Israel

'We need to work with Israel to track serial numbers on any U.S. weapons used by Hamas against Israel. Did they come from Afghanistan? Did they come from Ukraine? Highly likely the answer is both...'

(Ken Silva, Headline USA) Congressional Republicans are seeking to probe whether the $6 billion released to Iran, the $70 billion of weapons left in Afghanistan or the untold amount of weapons sent to Ukraine were used in the Hamas attack on Israel.

“We need to work with Israel to track serial numbers on any U.S. weapons used by Hamas against Israel. Did they come from Afghanistan? Did they come from Ukraine?” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said Sunday on Twitter.

“Highly likely the answer is both,” she said.

“You have to be an idiot to believe the Biden admin’s talking points that none of the $6 billion released to Iran could be used for war against Israel,” she added, later to be joined by Sen. Tim Scott, who on Tuesday called for Treasury Secretary Yellen to testify on the matter.

While the Biden administration has claimed that Iran didn’t yet have the ability to spend any of the $6 billion unfrozen last month, Greene is almost certainly correct in her assessment about the weapons.

Indeed, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reportedly been saying since June that U.S.-made anti-tank weapons intended for Ukraine were turning up on the Israeli border.

Other U.S. weapons from Ukraine have reportedly appeared in Africa, in the hands of Boko Haram insurgents fighting against US-armed soldiers from Chad, Niger and Nigeria.

Along with the reports of diverted weaponry, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Seymour Hersh has reported that top Ukrainian officials have siphoned some $400 million in U.S. aid.

As for Afghanistan, weapons from there have reportedly found their way into the hands of pro-Pakistani Islamist terrorists in Kashmir.

As noted by former U.S. Marine Corps intelligence officer Scott Ritter, U.S. officials seem willfully ignorant about where their weapons are being used.

“This became evident in May 2022, when Rand Paul, a Republican Senator from Kentucky, tried to have an inspector general put in place to monitor and account for some $40 billion in military assistance to Ukraine requested by President Joe Biden,” Ritter wrote Monday.

“Senator Paul’s motion was overwhelmingly defeated by a Congress which appeared to be happy to assume a ‘hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil’ posture when it came to the issue of Ukraine and corruption.”

The most recent attack by Hamas has some legislators at least posturing that they want to take their heads out of the sand.
