Washington Times: China to sell Jordan missile-firing drones after Obama says no to helping ally

China is offering to sell Jordan missile-firing drones to fight the Islamic State terror army, according to a U.S. congressman.

“I am now aware that China is presently in Jordan to discuss operations, logistics and maintenance associated with the urgent sale of weaponized unmanned systems,” Rep. Duncan Hunter, California Republican, said in a letter on Thursday to President Obama.

Rep. Hunter has pressed the Obama administration — to no avail — to approve the sale of Predator unmanned surveillance aircraft to the kingdom.
