The trojan horse in OUR whitehouse is using YOUR money to arm al Qaeda in Syria! What are you/we going to do about it?

U.S. weapons reaching Syrian rebels

SALAH AL-ASHKAR/AFP/Getty Images - An opposition fighter fires a rocket propelled grenade during clashes with regime forces near Aleppo. A new phase of non-lethal U.S. assistance is ramping up as weapons supplied by the CIA have begun to trickle into Syria, according to opposition officials.

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.

The arms are being delivered as the United States is also shipping new types of nonlethal gear to rebels. That aid includes vehicles, sophisticated communications equipment and advanced combat medical kits.

U.S. officials hope that, taken together, the weapons and gear will boost the profile and prowess of rebel fighters in a conflict that started about 21 / 2 years ago.

Although the Obama administration signaled months ago that it would increase aid to Syrian rebels, the efforts have lagged because of the logistical challenges involved in delivering equipment in a war zone and officials’ fears that any assistance could wind up in the hands of jihadists. Secretary of State John F. Kerry had promised in April that the nonlethal aid would start flowing “in a matter of weeks.”

The delays prompted several senior U.S. lawmakers to chide the Obama administration for not moving more quickly to aid the Syrian opposition after promising lethal assistance in June. The criticism has grown louder amid the debate over whether Washington should use military force against the Syrian regime, with some lawmakers withholding support until the administration committed to providing the rebels with more assistance.

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), who has pressed the Obama administration to do more to help the rebels, said he felt embarrassed when he met with Syrians along the Turkish border three weeks ago.

“It was humiliating,” he said in an interview Wednesday night. “The president had announced that we would be providing lethal aid, and not a drop of it had begun. They were very short on ammunition, and the weapons had not begun to flow.”

The latest effort to provide aid is aimed at supporting rebel fighters who are under the command of Gen. Salim Idriss, according to officials, some of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity because part of the initiative is covert. Idriss is the commander of the Supreme Military Council, a faction of the disjointed armed opposition.

U.S. officials, speaking about the provision of nonlethal aid, said they are determined to increase the cohesion and structure of the rebel fighting units.

“This doesn’t only lead to a more effective force, but it increases its ability to hold coalition groups together,” said Mark S. Ward, the State Department’s senior adviser on assistance to Syria, who coordinates nonlethal aid to rebels from southern Turkey. “They see their leadership is having some impact.”

We need a leader, now......



As far as I am concerned the officer Corp are all spineless cowards since they should have resigned years ago over the rules of engagement that killed so many of our troops. The Clintons got rid of any Patton types years ago. Very soon with the indoctrination of the enlisted they will be turned against us.

It is called treason!

Article one, Section six of the US Constitution makes it clear that just about everything that members of Congress do, while in session is protected from prosecution, one of the three exceptions is an act of treason.

Article 1, section 6, clause 1 The Senators and Representatives shall receive a compensation for their services, to be ascertained by law, and paid out of the Treasury of the United States. They shall in all cases, except treason, felony and breach of the peace, be privileged from arrest during their attendance at the session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any speech or debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other place.

Treason is defined as aiding and/or giving comfort to the enemy during time of war. The United States is at war with and our military is fighting against al-Qaeda in Afghanistan. Since we are fighting al-Queda in Afghanistan, al-Queda is therefore our enemy.

Al-Queda makes up about 35% of the rebel forces fighting against the government of Syria. If we join those fighting against Syria, we will be fighting on the same side with and side by side with al-Qaeda. That's right, the US military will be fighting side by side with the very same enemy we are fighting in Afghanistan. Every member of Congress that votes to send US troops to fight on the side of the rebels in Syria is committing treason by voting to allow Obama to order members of the US military to fight with, give aid and comfort to, al-Queda our enemy.

Article 3.Section 3.
Clause 1 defines treason: Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open Court.

The roll call votes of how Maine's two Senators, King and Collins and Maines' two Congressmen, Michuad and Pingree vote on this very important issue will be found at and

By the way, for those of you who have children in the Military, no one, of any rank, can order your child to commit treason by fighting on the side of and with a group we are at war with. No General, president or platoon leader can order or force you child to commit treason by aiding al-Queda.

obozo and his band of thieves and thugs are a sorry excuse for humans, if that is what they can be called.
