BERLIN (Reuters) - Americans are training Syrian anti-government fighters in Jordan, the German weekly Der Spiegel said on Sunday, quoting what it said were participants and organizers.
Spiegel said it was not clear whether the Americans worked for private firms or were from the army but said some wore uniforms. The training focused on use of anti-tank weaponry.
Some 200 men have already received such training over the past three months and there are plans in the future to provide training for a total 1,200 members of the "Free Syrian Army" in two camps in the south and the east of the country.
Britain's Guardian newspaper also reported that U.S. trainers were assisting Syrian rebels in Jordan. British and French instructors were also participating in the U.S.-led effort, the Guardian said on Saturday, citing Jordanian security sources.

A bloody civil war is going on between two groups of totally evil sulbhumans, both of which bitterly hate us, and we’re doing our level best to help the one that, in the long run, could do the greater damage to us. If there was ever a war to sit out on the sidelines, pass the popcorn, and hope for each side to inflict the largest, bloodiest possible, on the other, this is it. STAY OUT!!!
Its probably where the ammo is going as well.
The only bright spot is the fact that Jordan doesn’t want radicals running the show next door.
So now American are overthrowing foreign governments in the open.
The Democrats wet their pants for years from screaming about the Contras. But they are OK with this? Their hypocrisy is showing.
With special emphasis on anti-tank training, this is aimed beyond Assad, and more at some point in the future against Israel.
TREASON - continuous, pre-meditated, agenda-driven, agency-abetted, representative-enabled, judicially-precedented, media-manipulated, talking-points-obfuscated, covertly-covered-up, unquestioned, unchecked, ongoing...
Another US training “spring” cleaning so Muslim Brotherhood can expand.
houses of the unholy - get our guys out of there
Isn't that what happened to Egypt, Libya.
Makes me wonder if Jordan is next on Obama's and Muslim Brotherhood's list.
Yes, Obama is "fundamentally" changing America as he said he would.
Now, we (Obama) endorse radical, run-amok countries and support terrorist organizations that occupy these countries.
Great comments here & a whole lot of great comments at the source.
Hadn't thought of that. Maybe ammo grab is one-big gunrunning deal.
Your post, cripplecreek---->food for thought.
Can we expect anything different when we elect a muslim as commander in chief ?
Don’t expect things to get better here when our elected officials continue to do what they do .
Yep; Obama is step by step overthrowing secular dictators in the Middle East and installing Muslim Brotherhood or other terrorist governments. These governments will form the building blocks for the Greater Caliphate and will unite to attack Israel.
Yep. All that ammo from the coordation in Benghazi....via Turkey.
Anyone suprised by this is naive in the extreme.
Since opposition to zero seems virtually nil, what’s to stop him from importing them right here to “quell civil unrest”?
