During the Sept. 16 episode of his Brighteon.TV program "Prather Point," former intelligence officer Jeffrey Prather noted how there is precedent for America sending thousands of weapons to nations and armed groups to prolong conflicts. (Related: Biden wants to continue pouring tens of billions of dollars down the Ukraine money pit while Americans suffer.)
Prather pointed out how the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives launched Operation Fast and Furious in the late 2000s to send thousands of guns to the Sinaloa drug cartel in Mexico. These guns ended up murdering U.S. agents, including Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agent Jaime Zapata.
"In Bagram, Biden ran hundreds of thousands of guns to the Taliban, who are murdering Americans and our allies," said Prather. Similar situations of Biden, former President Barack Obama and other notable Democratic officials providing arms and money to America's enemies.
"Fast and Furious was an international covert gun-running operation. Benghazi and Syria were international covert gun-running operations," said Prather. "And so is Ukraine now. Biden's war profiteers have turned Ukraine into an endless war."
Biden's administration recently announced that it will send another $600 million in military aid to Ukraine. The White House claims more military aid is necessary to capitalize on Kyiv's recent successes in its counteroffensive in northeastern Ukraine.
The White House noted that this recent military aid package would be the 21st time the Department of Defense has pulled weapons and other equipment from U.S. Armed Forces reserve to deliver to Ukraine.
"With admirable grit and determination, the people of Ukraine are defending their homeland and fighting for their future," claimed Secretary of State Antony Blinken. "The capabilities we are delivering are carefully calibrated to make the most difference on the battlefield and strengthen Ukraine's hand at the negotiating table when the time is right."
The package is expected to include more weapons America has already sent to Ukraine, including High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), night vision goggles, claymore mines, mine clearing equipment, 105-millimeter caliber artillery rounds and 155-millimeter precision-guided artillery rounds. Some of the money will also be used for military education and training.
This recent announcement comes just one week after the White House approved $675 million more in weapons to Ukraine and $2.2 billion in long-term military financing for Ukraine and 18 of its neighbors, including North Atlantic Treaty Organization members and regional security partners that are at risk of future Russian aggression.
This latest package of weapons brings the total amount of U.S. military aid to Ukraine to nearly $15.9 billion in taxpayer dollars since Biden took office, with more than $15 billion of that going to Kyiv since the start of the Russian special military operation in late February.
"We keep sending arms and money to Ukraine and it's shown up on the black market," commented Prather. "So, this is just Fast and Furious on steroids."
