Congress Defies American People Secretly Approves Weapons Flow to “Moderate” Syrian Rebel Factions

Uhh last time I checked the majority of Syrian rebels had terrorist elements embedded within them. There is nothing “moderate” about John McCain’s pals who’re wasting people if they don’t convert to islam among other atrocities! This is more or less is an act of treason to aid and abet our enemies. It was the very reason why so many Americans were vehemently against any aid going to them where Glenn Beck was calling for impeachment on the grounds of treason. Those of you wondering what Ambassador Chris Stevens was doing at a CIA annex and not the US embassy in Tripoli, Libya here ya go! Running guns which has now been clearly whitewashed by the corrupt, impotent, inept Congress.

This is the same Congress who cut pension benefits off for our veterans, stabbing them in the back, but has no problem spending money sending aid to Syria for someone else’s fight!

Congress secretly approves U.S. weapons flow to ‘moderate’ Syrian rebels

Light arms supplied by the United States are flowing to “moderate” Syrian rebel factions in the south of the country and U.S. funding for months of further deliveries has been approved by Congress, according U.S. and European security officials.

The weapons, most of which are moving to non-Islamist Syrian rebels via Jordan, include a variety of small arms, as well as some more powerful weapons, such as anti-tank rockets.

The deliveries do not include weapons such as shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles, known as MANPADs, which could shoot down military or civilian aircraft, the officials said.

The weapons deliveries have been funded by the U.S. Congress, in votes behind closed doors, through the end of government fiscal year 2014, which ends on September 30, two officials said.

The apparently steady weapons flow contrasts with the situation last summer, when lethal U.S. aid to the Syrian rebels dried up for a time due to congressional reservations.

Congressional committees held up weapons deliveries for months over fears that U.S. arms would not prove decisive in the rebels’ efforts to oust President Bashar Assad and his government and could well end up in the hands of Islamist militants.

A U.S. official familiar with recent developments said national security officials and members of Congress are more confident that weapons delivered to southern Syria are going to, and remaining in, the hands of moderate rebels rather than militant jihadist factions.
