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 Syrias 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.

Next thing you know, they’ll be destroying oil facilities with those weapons.
I sense Americans are getting really fed up with what is going on...
So we’re arming Al-Qaeda in Syria, and soon may be providing them an air force as well, complete with cruise missiles.
The world must be upside down. That’s the only explanation for this madness.
On 9/11 Im reading a story about the US arming the people who attacked us just 12 years ago?
And we are still at war with
All this because McCain refused to make Obama’s muslim — oh, I mean, Christian — faith a campaign issue.
Maybe 0bama should just come out and tell the American people he was arming Al Qaeda in Benghazi Libya, too. Why keep it secret any longer?
0bama has been supplying and funding ENEMIES OF THE U.S. in Libya, Egypt and Syria. It's pretty obvious there's been a coup d'etat on the American government. It's not American anymore!
But...but... isn’t this illegal and unconstitutional ? Oh, wait...it doesn’t matter anymore.
Are U.S. taxpayer dollars being used to help the ‘rebels’ persecute and kill Christians in Syria, Egypt, ... WHY??? This is unacceptable.
“The arms shipments, which are limited to light weapons and other munitions that can be tracked”
Fast and Furious worked out so well in Mexico that Obama has now moved his operation to Syria.
The US has gone off the deep end and is now openly arming terrorists who will exterminate Christians and commit mass murder against the Alawites. Since Turkey is the conduit and openly siding with the Islamists, Russia needs to play this game too by informing Erdogan that lethal aid will start flowing to the Kurdish separatists in Turkey in direct proportion to the arms shipments going through Turkey to Syria.
What a difference 12 yrs makes. Why is it that democrat presidents are on the side of the Moslems that want to kill us?
Pogo was right. We have met the enemy and it is us.
the day after the anniversary of the 911 Atrocities
and the Benghazi Atrocity, the CIA (praying to Obama
and Mohammed 5x per day) delivers WMD, rockets
to deliver them, and weapons to al Qaeda
(who PROMISE to not kill Americans for at least 2 days.).
I seem to remember back many years ago when we used to be the good guys and supported the good guys.
It’s fading after all these years, but I think that happened once upon a time.
...Because they both desire to cut off Adam Smith's invisible hand.
You are correct! THEY are arming the evil. I get ticked when someone says “WE” voted for Obama. :)
