U.S. Arming Terrorists One Way or Another

Fox News reports:
The recent theft of massive amounts of highly sensitive U.S. military equipment from Libya is far worse than previously thought, Fox News has learned, with raiders swiping hundreds of weapons that are now in the hands of militia groups aligned with terror organizations and the Muslim Brotherhood.  
The equipment, as Fox News previously reported, was used for training in Libya by U.S. Special Forces. The training team, which was funded by the Pentagon, has since been pulled, partly in response to the overnight raids last August.  
According to State Department and military sources, dozens of highly armored vehicles called GMV's, provided by the United States, are now missing. The vehicles feature GPS navigation as well as various sets of weapon mounts and can be outfitted with smoke-grenade launchers.
In addition, the article states that the terrorists haul included roughly 100 Glock pistols, over 100 M-4 carbines, and an undisclosed number of night-vision goggles. (They will own the night). No word on how much ammunition or other munitions may have been captured.

The article reports that terrorists have been acting increasingly bold, carrying out daylight attacks against targets (including, last month, an attack on the European ambassador).
