At the second presidential debate against Mitt Romney, Barack Obama answered a question about assault weapons. He said (at about the 1:40 mark in the video below),

"My belief is that, A we need to enforce the laws that we've already got, make sure that we're keeping guns out of the hands of criminals....." It seems that Mr. Obama only preaches, but does not practice the advice of his lecturing. First, there was Operation Fast and Furious, which allowed illegal firearms to circulate among criminals on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border.

Then, it turns out that the Obama Administration may not only have put guns in the hands of dangerous cartel members, but also in the hands of jihadist terrorists. According to former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense under Ronald Reagan, Frank Gaffney at TownHall.com, "the evidence suggests that the Obama administration has not simply been engaging, legitimating, enriching and emboldening Islamists who have now taken over or are ascendant in much of the Middle East. Starting in March 2011, when American diplomat Christopher Stevens was designated the liaison to the "opposition" in Libya, the Obama administration has been arming them, including jihadists like Abdelhakim Belhadj, the leader of the al Qaeda franchise known as the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group." According to Aaron Klein at World Net Daily, Stevens served as a key contact in working with the Saudis to coordinate the recruitment by Saudi Arabia of Islamic fighters from North Africa and Libya. Those jihadists were sent to Syria via Turkey to attack Assad’s forces, said Egyptian security officials. Klein reported on August 8, 2012 in his article "Look Who U.S. is Supporting Now", that according to a senior Syrian official, at least 500 hardcore mujahedeen from Afghanistan, many of whom were spearheading efforts to fight the U.S. there, were killed in clashes with Syrian forces. Reports from Jihadiya Salafia in the Gaza Strip, a group that represents al-Qaida in the coastal territory, earlier that week declared three days of mourning for its own jihadists who died in Syria supports the information from the Syrian official. As early as May, in his article Just Lovely: Look Who U.S. is Helping Now, Middle Eastern security officials told WND the U.S. has been working with Arab countries to ensure the opposition in Syria is well armed. In the same article, Klein also points out that the Egyptian military official said there is evidence the Syrian opposition is transferring some weapons to jihadist allies in both northern Lebanon and Iraq. Any weapons transfers to Iraq could potentially be used against the Iraqi government and U.S. or international interests in that country.

According to English.alarabiya.net as early as May 2012, the United States has ‘assisting’ weapons transfer to Syrian rebels.
So, let's get this straight, the UNITED STATES is giving weapons to Al Qaeda who were shooting at Americans in Afghanistan to fight against Syrian forces, but some of those weapons are being used in Iraq to kill remaining American and Iraqi soldiers. Tyrone Woods is dead because the Obama Administration decided to leave him and the rest of the brave Americans at Benghazi to fend for themselves.

Billy Hallowell at TheBlaze.com reported that CIA operators were told to ‘stand down’ during the attack as three urgent requests for military back-up were denied.
Indeed, the United States of America needs a NEW Commander-in-Chief.
