Our tax dollars at work! ISIS is now the proud owners of $579 MILLION worth of Humvees with increased armor, machine guns, grenade launchers, and other gear and support that Obama’s State Department sold to Iraq last year. 

Had Obama taken a more aggressive military stance against ISIS when they first formed, they would never have amassed to an army of this magnitude.

Iraqi security forces confirmed the lose 2,300 Humvee armored vehicles when ISIS jihadist group overran the northern city of Mosul, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Sunday.

“In the collapse of Mosul, we lost a lot of weapons,” Abadi said in an interview with Iraqiya state TV. “We lost 2,300 Humvees in Mosul alone.”

The Daily Star reported that the price of the vehicles varies depending on how they are armored and equipped, it is clearly a hugely expensive loss that has boosted ISIS’s capabilities.

Clashes began in Mosul, Iraq’s second city, late on June 9, 2014, and Iraqi forces lost it the following day to ISIS, which spearheaded an offensive that overran much of the country’s Sunni Arab heartland.

The militants gained ample arms, ammunition and other equipment when multiple Iraqi divisions fell apart in the country’s north, abandoning gear and shedding uniforms in their haste to flee.

ISIS has used captured Humvees, which were provided to Iraq by the United States, in subsequent fighting, rigging some with explosives for suicide bombings.

Iraqi security forces backed by Shiite militias have regained significant ground from ISIS in Diyala and Salaheddin provinces north of Baghdad.

But that momentum was slashed in mid-May when ISIS overran Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province, west of Baghdad, where Iraqi forces had held out against militants for more than a year.

  1. The initial post “Truth Uncensored” puts up would suggest that Obama actually handed over the Humvees to ISIS. Only after reading the article does “Truth” state that the Humvees were “captured” by ISIS when the Iraqi army retreated from Mosul. Now, trying to connect the fact that the Obama administration is dragging it’s feet to assist the Iraqi’s in an effort to defeat ISIS is one thing. Making it “seem” that Obama handed over military hardware is another. I support getting Obama out of office. But I don’t condone placing misleading information on social media to “sensationalize” the point WE ALL are trying to make. WE complain when the Obama administration or the liberal media posts falsehoods. Let’s not be hypocrites here.

    • I stand by my statement that Obama is responsible for ISIS having this military arsenal. Obama has maintained a lackadaisical attitude about the threat of ISIS and had ample opportunity to strike hard at ISIS when they were just forming. With the drone ability we have, why were they not used to annihilate ISIS troops as they marched through the desert murdering innocence and taking over villages and military sites like this one? They have been marching towards this area for weeks, they could have been stopped. So yes, I blame Obama.
