    AlCIAda is alive and well but I'm sure the yuppies will deny it and say its all made up or they will say its a good thing that the CIA is arming Jihadists that may use the weapons to kill US troops.

    Rebel Arms Flow Is Said to Benefit Jihadists in Syria

    This is even bigger than F&F but it gets no attention from the "watchdog media". The Obama admin is arming terrorists and then treating Americans likes prisoners to "protect us" from the people they are supporting.

    Looks like someone's trying to take the spotlight back from Hack Hawk Down.

    Two things:

    1. Let's not pretend that there are tons of secular, Western-friendly opposition groups in Syria that are willing to pick up arms and fight the government. If you bolster armed opposition in Syria, you invariably deal with Jihadis. That's just a fact on the ground. Ba'athist Syria is a secular dictatorship, so naturally most opposition would be of a religious nature (as happened in Egypt, where Mubarak's reign was pretty far to the secular side in many mays). Secular, Western-friendly Syrian opposition is made up of intellectuals, not guerrilla warriors.

    2. This is what you get when you try to bolster local opposition, and work with places like Qatar and Saudi Arabia to get it done. You think Qatar gives a fuck if the Syrian opposition is of a Jihadi nature? On the contrary. So even if high level officials decide on plan A, the mid level people on the ground will do whatever the fuck they want. Some smuggler who is a Qatari intelligence informant is told to take weapons to group A but he takes them to group B. It's all opposition in his head, and the leader of group B is part of this guy's clan and they do business all the time. You want the stuff to get where you want it? You gotta send Americans into Syria to hand deliver the weapons to specific people. Anything less than that and it's a crapshoot. Not saying we should do that. Just how that part of the world operates.
