U.S. weapons reaching Syrian rebels

By Ernesto Londoño and Greg Miller, E-mail the writers

The CIA has begun delivering weapons to rebels in Syria, ending months of delay in lethal aid that had been promised by the Obama administration, according to U.S. officials and Syrian figures. The shipments began streaming into the country over the past two weeks, along with separate deliveries by the State Department of vehicles and other gear — a flow of material that marks a major escalation of the U.S. role in Syria’s civil war.

The arms shipments, which are limited to light weapons and other munitions that can be tracked, began arriving in Syria at a moment of heightened tensions over threats by President Obama to order missile strikes to punish the regime of Bashar al-Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons in a deadly attack near Damascus last month.

The latest effort to provide aid is aimed at supporting rebel fighters who are under the command of Gen. Salim Idriss, according to officials, some of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity because part of the initiative is covert. Idriss is the commander of the Supreme Military Council, a faction of the disjointed armed opposition.


Gen Salim Idriss commands the “Free Syrian Army”. For a little background on the “moderate” Free Syrian Army:


The U.S.-backed Syrian rebel faction known as the Free Syrian Army has posted videos of their attack this past week on the ancient city of Maaloula. The attacks on the Christian village came one day after Sec. of State Kerry told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday, “There is a real moderate opposition that exists. General Idriss is running the military arm of that."

While both Sec. of State Kerry and Sen. John McCain have touted the Free Syrian Army as moderates, the videos posted by the group itself show that they were fighting alongside sworn al Qaeda jihadists in an attempt to ‘liberate’ the Christian village.

The US is now arming al Qaeda so they can kill more Christians. Heck of a foreign policy Obama has going.

Someone needs to hunt down and destroy the CIA like terrorists.

Tell me why these CIA agents providing weapons to those who would kill Christians in Syria, shouldn’t be hunted down and destroyed like terrorists ? Because they’re “Our boys”, because they come from the same country as many of us ? That argument just doesn’t cut it anymore.

So we don’t want to get involved in their own civil war, but we are sending weapons to the rebels, many of whom are terrorists.

What a debacle. Almost makes Fast and Furious look tame.

We live in a sinful world and the same mistakes have been made since the beginning , we count on sinful humans , imperfect man to lead us. It is a battle between good and evil. Who out there is the perfect one? So we trust in God and pray,pray and pray some more,
that in spite of our leaders weaknesses , we must trust God to work through them to bring about peace to His people. Peace, Carlan

now and at the hour of our death


Really? How do I get in on the daily Top Secret CIA briefings? The Pentagon always hangs up whenever I call.

Can you spell L-E-A-K for public consumption?
