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

Posted on 09/11/2013 7:50:47 PM PDT by John W

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.

And this is what ambassador Stephens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Can’t spell his last name died for.
Sickening.

So let me get this straight. Obama just agreed to work with Assad to deliver his WMD to 'international inspectors' while at the same time works against Assad by arming those fighting against him? Yeah, that's gonna work. Assad and Putin now point out to the rest of the world how they tried to do the right thing by surrendering their weapons, except the US is making it impossible to comply because of the al Qaeda rebels they are arming.

We have not yet begun to realize just how badly Kerry and Obama got played by Putin and Assad.

Just because he slipped up a d embarrassed USA doesn’t mean he’s got any intention of making nice- nice. He still wants to overthrow the Syrian government and turn that nation over to his terrorist friends. Just like he’s done to several other countries already. We need to get over the “Incompetence discussions” He is not that at all. Take just one step back and you can see the next world Islamic caliphate “well under construction” Indeed he’s made remarkable progress at it (At American taxpayer expense. )

Lets send more weapons into the black hole of Mehico, while were at it.

Next, lets hand out chain saws to the cannibal community and pass laws to protect their culture.
