Let's see, missiles go Qatar go to the enemy, and now

we give them five Taliban commanders... this President really is on the other side.
The next day, an explosive ordnance disposal team arrived to pick through the wreckage and found unexploded pieces of a missile casing that could only belong to a Stinger missile.

Lodged in the right nacelle, they found one fragment that contained an entire serial number.

The investigation took time. Arms were twisted, noses put out of joint. But when the results came back, they were stunning: The Stinger tracked back to a lot that had been signed out by the CIA recently, not during the anti-Soviet ­jihad.
Any further questions what the ambassador was doing in Benghazi?

My sources in the US Special Operations community believe the Stinger fired against the Chinook was part of the same lot the CIA turned over to the ­Qataris in early 2011, weapons Hillary Rodham Clinton’s State Department intended for anti-Khadafy forces in Libya.
This was, if I recall, after Khadafy had already offered a deal to leave power and Libya, but that wasn't good enough.  Not enough chance for the islamists to take over.
They believe the Qataris delivered between 50 and 60 of those same Stingers to the Taliban in early 2012, and an additional 200 SA-24 Igla-S surface-to-air missiles.

Lightning.  Nature's way of saying "I don't like this tree."

There is also the point that the duck had been proposing a gold dinar for use in international trade in Africa.

That would directly conflict with the fe'ral reserve's ability to print paper wealth for its masters.

I suspect that very publicly punishing anyone who threatens the international reserve status of fed counterfeit was the prime reason.

Remember that Saddam had also been offering to sell oil for currencies other than dollars.

Allowing the islamists to take over and provide pretext for even more warfare internationally and police state at home was likely a bonus.
