Impeach Obama For Arming Syria Rebels Says Glenn Beck [Video]
Impeach Obama says political commentator and BlazeTV mogul Glenn Beck.
Beck is calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama and Republicans like Sen. John McCain for empowering Al Qaeda-linked rebels in Syria with US-supplied arms. It makes absolutely no sense to give weapons to the enemies of our country, Beck insisted on his radio/TV show today.
President Obama has waived certain provisions of the Arms Export Control Act to allow weapons to be sent to the Syrian rebels in that country’s civil war even though many observers believe much of the Syrian opposition is comprised of extremists and terrorists. Those legal provisions can be bypassed or ignored in connection with essential national security interests. Most Americans and most federal lawmakers don’t believe that Syria poses an imminent threat to the US, however.
In view of the decision to send arms to the Syrian opposition, Glenn Beck declared that the impeachment of the Democrat president and several Republican lawmakers is the next step. Said Beck about the potential impeach Obama movement:
“I personally am calling to impeach the president of the United States. This is impeachable. He is arming known terrorists, and people like John McCain should be impeached as well… if them saying we’re going to arm Al Qaeda, and yes we know some of the arms are going to fall into the arms of Al Qaeda — and how do know that? Because the president just had to waive the law, saying that we are going to arm known terrorists… that’s against the law, so we have to erase that law and make an exception so we can ship arms to them… if that’s not an impeachable offense for Lindsay Graham, for John McCain, for John Boehner, for the president of the United states, I don’t know what is.”
Concluded Beck about the Obama impeachment assertion: “We did not get into bed with Hitler to defeat Japan…no one would say, ‘let’s give Hitler a whole bunch of arms so he can help us defeat Japan.’ ” Arming the Syria rebels “is the height of insanity… impeachable… I believe it is treason, and the president knows it’s against the law, that’s why he had to waive that law yesterday.”
Do you think giving weapons to the Syrian rebels is an impeachable offense?
