Did President Obama just start World War III by waiving the U.S. ban on arming terrorists?

The Washington Examiner has just reported:

Obama waives ban on arming terrorists to allow aid to Syrian opposition

President Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to “vetted” opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.

Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda

The law allows the president to waive those prohibitions if he “determines that the transaction is essential to the national security interests of the United States.”

That sounds pretty scary to me.

It also sounds like grounds for impeachment.

I hope this doesn’t lead to World War III.

    Definitely grounds for impeachment: it’s called TREASON because it involves giving aid, comfort – and arms – to our declared enemies. And we all know what the legal punishment for treason is, don’t we? So YES I DO believe that this wannabe caliph, Baath-house Barry Hussein Ohamad, will at least try to start WWIII if only to avoid being hanged by his scrawny neck until dead, dead, DEAD!
