Light arms supplied by the United States are flowing to "moderate" Syrian rebel factions in the south of the country and U.S. funding for months of further deliveries has been approved by Congress, according U.S. and European security officials.
The weapons, most of which are moving to non-Islamist Syrian rebels via Jordan, include a variety of small arms, as well as some more powerful weapons, such as anti-tank rockets.
The deliveries do not include weapons such as shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles, known as MANPADs, which could shoot down military or civilian aircraft, the officials said. (Snip)

If only we had supplied weapons to Japan and Nazi Germany, they would not have attacked us...
i hate that everyone stands for this.
when will we elect real americans
Sending weapons to Al Qaeda had to go through Boner’s House.
So we KINDA think maybe we aren't immediately and directly sending arms to Al Qaeda. But we're not sure.
So...McCain’s buddy....the one who ate another Muslim in a YouTube video...now has US weapons? Just awesome /sarc
Next...Soros folks in Ukraine will get some weapon bling...
After Lockerbie Reagan ordered airstrikes against Kaddafi, who later went on a decades-long hobby of buying up MANPADS big-time. Right before the fall Libya had 21,000,of them.
Intel Ops are always more quiet if they don’t require huge amounts of outside funding, so why not help knock off Syria with barely guarded muzziles laying around in Libya..?
BENGAZI: MISSILES FOR MUZZIES
and the beat goes on ...
yes and the end of it and criminal proceedings begin there as well...
this is not going to end well for US.
Notice that NOBODY in Washington has admitted what 30 CIA guys were doing in Benghazi?
They were shipping anti-aircraft missiles to Al Qaeda in Syria, of course. That's so toxic, it may not be spoken.
John McCain's so-called friends in Syria, who he is caught on camera with, are the very same criminals who have been kidnapping and beheading innocent people. They are Al Qaeda murderers and these are McCain's friends, for whom he wants to bomb the innocent people in Syria.
“which are moving to non-Islamist Syrian rebels”
My,,, I had never heard of the non-moslem faction challenging the Syrian government.
They weren’t stolen. That was ambassador Stevens job to funnel weapons to Syria through Turkey. And it blew up in their face. And that’s why no rescue mission came. Secret missions don’t get the instant response a normal embassy attack gets.
And now a decade after 911, we have a culturally moslem president, assisting Al Qeida, and flying airstrikes on their behalf.
Keep your powder dry.
“Next...Soros folks in Ukraine will get some weapon bling...”
Now you’ve done it. Don’t you know? The Ukraine protests are the heirs of Jefferson and Madison, yearning to be more like the EU oligarchy. And its all tied into the cold war somehow. And Russia is about to invade Europe,, or something like that.
“Intel Ops are always more quiet if they dont require huge amounts of outside funding, so why not help knock off Syria with barely guarded muzziles laying around in Libya..?”
Very unkind of you to notice that! Nice to see some have taken the blinders off.
There is no such thing as a moderate Syrian rebel.
The arms came through the Benghazi CIA station that was attacked.
I’ve always said we should send a rifle to everyone in Asia Minor. Give them weapons and without regard to who the bleep they are, just make sure EVERYONE gets at least one. Let them settle their centuries old grudges now and forever. If they’re killing each other they are not bothering us. We’ll know they have been successful when they knock off the Soddy royal family. By my count they are still 25 million short of thinning the herd to a civilizeable level. The Syrians are doing their part so far. They just need more weapons and ammo. The only mystery to me is why somebody thinks it has to be a secret?
Well, our government was designed to keep secrets from the people. Check your pocket Constitutions. Secret legislation, secret courts, secret executive actions in unison are what make America great. It’s a formula for liberty.
And when the “moderate rebels” are defeated, who will take their weapons?
Those that will use them against us.
This is insanity, and Zero and the Congress-cretins bare the consequences.
No, they were stolen by Syrian/Iranian supported terrorist to keep them from the intended Obama supported Anti-Syria terrorist.
And just yesterday on the Hill was a congressional hearing in which Clapper explained the rising strength of Al Queda and their franchises around the globe.
During that hearing they explained there are MANY westerners in Syria learning skills and becoming battle hardened with intentions of returning to Europe and AMERICA to carry out missions in the west. The ‘face’ of Al Queda is changing from the typical middle eastern profile...to one of a westerner.
Clapper reported that the threat is just as high as it was in 2001. Or I submit it is even worse as we’re not going to know what we’re looking for...
I am going to be hard pressed when the next attack takes place on American soil to not be conspiratorial as we have only ourselves to blame for providing supplies and likely training to the very terrorists who will slaughter us on that day.
Yeah well you know how violent and intolerant those Coptics are. /sarc
