arming syrian rebels

arming-syrian-rebelsSo, we’ve heard that Republican RINOs like John McCain and Lindsey Graham want to arm terrorists in Syria and we also know that Barack Obama has given the go ahead to arm them, while patriot senators have introduced legislation to stop military funding of those terrorists. Still others are pushing immigration reform that continues to allow jihadists across our borders. However, are you aware that Obama have been training Syrian jihadists since 2012?

The LA Times reports:

CIA operatives and U.S. special operations troops have been secretly training Syrian rebels with anti-tank and antiaircraft weapons since late last year, months before President Obama approved plans to begin directly arming them, according to U.S. officials and rebel commanders.

The covert U.S. training at bases in Jordan and Turkey, along with Obama’s decision this month to supply arms and ammunition to the rebels, has raised hope among the beleaguered Syrian opposition that Washington ultimately will provide heavier weapons as well. So far, the rebels say they lack the weapons they need to regain the offensive in the country’s bitter civil war.

The tightly constrained U.S. effort reflects Obama’s continuing doubts about being drawn into a conflict that has already killed more than 100,000 people and his administration’s fear that Islamic militants now leading the war against President Bashar Assad could gain control of advanced U.S. weaponry.

When asked on Friday about the CIA training, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said that the US had increased aid to these “rebels” (aka terrorists), but would not provide details.

“We have stepped up our assistance, but I cannot inventory for you all the elements of that assistance,” Carney said,. “We have provided and will continue to provide substantial assistance to the Syrian opposition, as well as the Supreme Military Council.”

While some maintain that these are real Syrian rebels, it remains to be seen as reports we have indicate that they are mostly made up of people outside of Syria and many of them are affiliated with Al-Qaeda.

Obama does not have America’s interests at heart that is for sure. He’s sending our troops to Egypt to defend the Muslim Brotherhood against those opposed to them, sending troops into Jordan, troops into Africaarming jihadists in Libya and now doing it in Syria. If we didn’t learn anything from what this man will do with his own people (ie Christopher Stevens), then I suppose we have no idea what he wants to do with the American people. However, I’ve got a pretty good idea.

The question is, when will Congress step in and start dealing with this criminal as a criminal? When are they going to hold him accountable for his clear violations of the Constitution? Where are those patriotic elected officials that speak of justice, law, and integrity? Sadly, they are few and far between.
