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.

This I believe is absolutely wrong.
Insane if true.
Wrong for the US to be doing or the report is wrong?
Wonderful. We are arming the evil. Figures.
All by design, Comrade. All. By. Design. *SPIT*
And this is what ambassador Stephens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Can’t spell his last name died for.

0 wants war, and won’t stop until he gets it.

Christmas came early for al queda. Thank you Santa-bama.
you gotta be kidding me. wtf.
If this country still had an exceptional future ahead, this would be widely protested by an overwhelming majority.
On 9/11 I’m reading a story about the US arming the people who attacked us just 12 years ago?
Gotterdammerung? I pray not.
Putin will not allow Assad to lose. 0bama will come out looking like even more of a jackass.
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.
The stupid is very strong with this administration.
