Senate Calls for Investigation

Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, seeking clarification as to reports that weapons sold by the U.S. to the UAE ended up in the hands of General Haftar’s Libyan National Army. Specifically, the letter mentions the UAE’s alleged transfer of ‘javelin’ anti-armor missiles to these Libyan actors.

The letter calls on the State Department’s Inspector General to determine the veracity of these reports, and if this breach in law constitutes a reason to terminate weapons sales to the UAE.
