Arming Bahrain, Against Whom?

Obama quietly sells arms to human rights-abuser Bahrain

When we last checked in on Bahrain, it was furiously lobbying to keep its cozy ties with the United States despite well-documented human rights abuses against a protest movement in the Gulf nation.

It now appears that those efforts may have paid off.

The Obama administration has gone ahead with selling arms to the regime despite opposition in Congress.  And we only know about the sale because some anonymous congressional sources came forward to alert the media.
