U.S. weapons reaching Syrian rebels
The Washington Post ^ | September 11, 2013 | Ernesto Londoņo and Greg Miller

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.

Perhaps the only good news is that this administration is imploding so badly (Syria,Recall in Colorado, backlash from ObamaCare,Benghazi, FastandFurious, etc) that this may insure Republican majority in the Senate, and probably more importantly, the the development of the TEA Party, etc, as an alternative to the Democratic and Republican Parties...

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.

All this because McCain refused to make Obama’s muslim — oh, I mean, Christian — faith a campaign issue.

"The CIA (Muzzie Brennan) has begun delivering weapons to rebels Al Qaeda in Syria.."

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!

Are U.S. taxpayer dollars being used to help the ‘rebels’ persecute and kill Christians in Syria, Egypt, ... WHY??? This is unacceptable.

If this country still had an exceptional future ahead, this would be widely protested by an overwhelming majority. sadly...

I see a Catch-22. We have no future because the sheeple aren't even paying attention to the things that matter.

“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.

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. :)
