The Americans introduced themselves as CIA officers andsaid they were there to help with the overthrow of Syrias authoritarian president,Bashar al-Assad.
The activist declined to be namedfor this article, because he didnt wantto be connected publicly to U.S.intelligence. He is respectedin Aleppo, and I first met him,in another southern Turkey hotel, at a State Departmentfunded training seminar for activists, where he was a keynote speaker. According to the activist,the officers questioned the group about creeping Islamism in the rebel ranks. Were Aleppo rebels supportive of democracy? Hostile to the West? What about alQaeda? Then the officers askedhow they could help. The activists wanted armedsupport for the rebels in Aleppoin particular,surface-to-air missilesbut the officers explained thatAmerica worried such weapons couldfallinto the hands of extremists.

What difference does it make?
Did we betray the Islamists trying to overthrow Saddam Hussein II?
I don’t care. Hitler vs. Stalin, as far as I am concerned. Why not just let them fight it out?
“Did the CIA betray THE US” fixed it.
Why was this written? Why now?
You obviously have no clue as to what the purpose of the CIA is.
Their entire existence and effort is to stir up problems around the world so that THEY can remain “Gainfully Employed”, That the US Military keeps busy which means more power for our Government Officials.
Their Goal IS NOT to protect our country. Their Goal is to keep everyone’s eye off the real problems such as their are life on Mars (and elsewhere), to UFO,s, to destabilizing countries to prevent them from getting to powerful, to keeping the price of oil up, and on and on and on.......
Oh, suuuuure the US CIA has the Syrian “rebels” on a tight leash, suuuuure. Hey, I’m Buck Rogers, sure.
No MANPADS for Syrian “rebels”, huh...? Uh-huh, sure.
I AM FREAKING BUCK ROGERS.
(rolls eyes while shaking head)
That explains it.

So that is where Obama’s 5.;1 million jobs went !!
And not to The United States ..
now THAT makes sense !
Dawn Sept. 8, 2012 Pentagon JSOC attack on al Qaeda cell near Benghazi file.
The activists wanted armed support for the rebels in Aleppo -- in particular, surface-to-air missiles -- but the officers explained that America worried such weapons could fall into the hands of extremists.
Helping them just enough to prolong the conflict is a plus for us. The more Muslims kill each other off, the fewer will be looking for ways to attack us.
yes. Obama (Osama) helped more people in foreign countries than he helped in the US and most of them were high ranking officials - not to mention many high ranking officials here is the US.
