WASHINGTONPresident Barack Obama is close to authorizing a mission led by the U.S. military to train moderate Syrian rebels to fight the regime of Bashar al-Assad and al Qaeda-linked groups, a move that would expand Washington's role in the conflict, U.S. officials said.
A new military training program, if implemented, would supplement a small train-and-equip program led by the Central Intelligence Agency which Mr. Obama authorized...

How soon willl is be before we read stories about how the Syrian “trainees” open fire and kill their US army instructors?
Bar-Ack is not incompetent. He is not stupid. He is a evil fifth columnist, a racist, and a closet Muslim who hates CHristianity, America and everything decent.
Good way to cause the democrats to lose the next election!
Can someone explain why Obama is obsessed with supporting Syrian rebels that have pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda?
This is the reason innocent Americans were killed in Benghazi, he was giving them arsenals of weapons to blow up towns, and has already pledged over $160 Million, just that we know of.
What is this obsession? Their neighbor Iran is threatening nuclear destruction, and death to America, and Obama is obsessed with Syria?
Pretty sure Obama and Iran are in cahoots. Is this about narco turf?
IOW, we’re going to be arming them to the teeth. It’s clear Obama hates Christians, but is it all that necessary to arm al-Qaeda sympathizers who terrorize them in Syria?
I only give you 7 out of 8—he is still stupid.
Will he give them Club Gitmo level medical care, or just lousy VA, that our vets get?
Aren’t they the ones who massacred Christians?
That would explain it.
THANK YOU. I’m so sick of people who keep saying Zero is “incompetent” or doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows EXACTLY what he’s doing. All of this is by design.
Now you know how we got involved in the Vietnam war with Dem’s tinkering in other nations’ affairs!
How does the USA sustain itself under a racist, anti American president, fomenting facism and race war in the streets through his lawless “Justice” Department, aided and abetted by an increasingly Marxist media?
Two plus more years of this is screaming for more than impeachment, but also removal from office.
God help us in your name, Jesus.
Why isn’t he arrested and charged with treason?
Syrian rebels are al Qaeda-linked ... raping and killing Christians.
So, Obama is going to PUBLICLY ARM AND TRAIN AL-QAEDA, and SOMEHOW HE’S NOT FROGMARCHED OUT IN CUFFS FOR A CRIMINAL TRIAL????!!!??
WHAT THE F***!!!!1!
I’m not in favor of getting involved in Syria but since 0bama says he is I have to wonder; is he waiting until every last Syrian is dead before he does something?
I'll answer a question with a question. If Obama were a Muslim supporting transnational Islamists who relish killing Christians and trying to recreate the Greater Caliphate, would he do anything different that he already has throughout the Middle East and North Africa?
