Utter disbelief: US Hellfire missile ‘accidentally’ sent to Cuba!

This from a president who believes the American people can’t be trusted with personal weapons.

With President Obama preoccupied with the pursuit of ideological beliefs — see gun control — the news of a Hellfire missile being “wrongly shipped” to Cuba is certain to leave Americans wondering just who’s minding the store.

And if Obama will soon issue an executive order to close the rocket-show loophole that allowed that to happen, as Twitchy.com sarcastically noted.

The Wall Street Journal reported this week that “an inert U.S. Hellfire missile sent to Europe for training purposes was wrongly shipped from there to Cuba in 2014,” adding that it was a “loss of sensitive military technology that ranks among the worst-known incidents of its kind.”

An incident that has “confounded” authorities.

Cuba still has the Hellfire Captive Air Training Missile, a “dummy missile” used in exercises — it still contained sensitive U.S. weapons technology — and the White House has been trying for more than a year to get the Castro regime to give it back, CNN reported.

If there was a resounding theme on social media, other than utter disbelief, it would be to question just how much of an “accident” the misdirection was. Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
