Huffington Post – Agence France Presse
The US Central Intelligence Agency has been feeding information to select rebel fighters in Syria to try to make them more effective against government troops, The Wall Street Journal reported Saturday.
Citing unnamed current and former US officials, the newspaper said the new CIA effort reflected a change in the administration’s approach that aims to strengthen secular rebel fighters.
The CIA has sent officers to Turkey to help vet rebels who receive arms shipments from Gulf allies, the report said.
But administration officials cited concerns about some weapons going to Islamists, the paper noted.
In Iraq, the CIA has been directed by the White House to work with elite counterterrorism units to help the Iraqis counter the flow of al Qaeda-linked fighters across the border with Syria, The Journal said.
According to the report, the West favors fighters aligned with the Free Syrian Army, which supports the Syrian Opposition Coalition political group.
Syrian opposition commanders said the CIA had been working with British, French and Jordanian intelligence services to train rebels in the use of various kinds of weapons, the paper said.
The move comes as the al Nusra Front, the main al Qaeda-linked group operating in Syria, is deepening its ties to the terrorist organization’s central leadership in Pakistan, The Journal said.
The new aid to rebels doesn’t change the US decision against taking direct military action, the paper noted.

So I guess that the government is “with” the terrorists now. Remember when they told the world…”you are either with us or with the terrorists. Seems the government has switched sides and now supports terrorism. But this is not new to the CIA which has supported terrorism for many years now.
They’ve always been the terrorists, or the creators of them.
So when can we expect the drones to start bombing the the CIA? When can we expect the arrests for aiding and abetting the enemy which has killed thousands of American Soldiers? (so they say) When can we expect the arrests of the US politiicans that authorized aiding a abetting the terrorists? Come on on the American people are waiting……….
So, if an American went to Syria to fight AGAINST the CIA assisted rebels, who are recognized as terrorists by most countries, what would the US government do?

The Gemara (tractate Sanhedrin 97b) says that the Nation of Israel (aka the Jewish People) will be redeemed as soon as they make teshuva, in other words, return to Hashem and the ways of His Torah. The Gemara then asks, what happens if the Nation of Israel doesn’t make teshuva? Rebbe Yehoshua answers that if Israel doesn’t make teshuva, then Hashem places them under the influence of a wicked king whose evil decrees are as severe as Haman’s, and then they make teshuva.
this is the NUT that must be cracked…
