WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama is asking Congress for $500 million to train and arm vetted members of the Syrian opposition, as the U.S. grapples for a way to stem a civil war that has also fueled the al-Qaida inspired insurgency in neighboring Iraq.
The military training program would boost the Obama administration's involvement in the conflict between forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad and opposition forces. The program would supplement a covert train-and-assistance program run by U.S. intelligence agencies.
The Senate Armed Services Committee has already approved a version of the sweeping defense policy bill authorizing the Defense Department to provide "equipment, supplies, training and defense services" to elements of the Syrian opposition that have been screened. The Senate could act on the bill before the August recess.

So American taxpayers are going to be forced to support a new wave of terrorists.
I just saw this on Yahoo news. Our government wants to arm Terrorists..oh, wait, they already have been.. I am lving in Upside Down Biazarro World.
This nation will be Judged and soon.
Stunning. I guess the first group of terrorists we trained and equipped wasn’t enough?
No. No more charitable gifts to Obama’s buddies. When did money sent to the middle east EVER get used for the intended purpose? When was it ever effective? The closest comparison I can think of is the US stimulus.
We can not even vet Obama, and now we are going to vet a bunch of bearded barbarians?
What will we do? Ask them for BC, driver’s license, HS diploma and which mosque they attend?
And they will all tell the truth, right? Why not support Assad — he is anti-ISIS, for sure.
Where is McCain? He sure has been quiet after the syrian terrorists he and obama support went to Iraq and started to lop heads off by the hundreds.
But to know that the only ones bombing ISIS in Iraq is Syria. Then to know Israel is bombing Syria basically aiding the very Group that is establishing the Caliphate...well “stuned” does not quite cover my head scratching....lol
If Obama wants to give money to his Jihadi friends, he can get it from his Facebook Pajama Boy and other cronies.
$500 million for ChristmISIS presents
Aren’t we supposed to be SUPPORTING the formation of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant Caliphate?
After all, this is how we are going to be standing up against the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Or was that Israel? I get so confused by all these “I” countries over there....
Iraq, Iran, Israel, India....
Sure they make great videos....
ISIS in Syria....pretty much the same as ISIS in Iraq.
Warning graphically ISIS.
Yaa Rabb urHam.
Yaa Rabb urHam.
Yaa Rabb urHam.

This is what happens when our mediots and $inators hate America so much, they will pretend that the Sunnis aka ISIS in Syria are the good guys.
Our vets can’t get medical care, and our Sunni President want 500 Millions to train his buddies, the ISIS serial killers, who hate America.

We say to the U.S. Government and swear to God that we we will enter the White House and come to your cities #CalamityWillBefallUS Expand

This particular hashtag #CalamityWillBefallUS is a warning from certain people about the possible consequences of another US attack on #Iraq.
The last time we funded the “moderates” in Syria, the bad kids marched right in, kicked their keysters, and stole the lunch money and military goodies we had given them.
Expect a repeat performance, except Barry knows full well what is happening.
I don’t think running up our credit cards to buy our enemies guns is a good idea.
I thought ISIS is the Syrian opposition.
