Another Fast and Furious.. This time we are arming Al Qaeda
This from the NEW YORK TIMES hardly a "Right Winged" paper..
"Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster, according to American officials and Middle Eastern diplomats."
"“The opposition groups that are receiving the most of the lethal aid are exactly the ones we don’t want to have it,” said one American official familiar with the outlines of those findings, commenting on an operation that in American eyes has increasingly gone awry."
"The United States is not sending arms directly to the Syrian opposition. Instead, it is providing intelligence and other support for shipments of secondhand light weapons like rifles and grenades into Syria, mainly orchestrated from Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The reports indicate that the shipments organized from Qatar, in particular, are largely going to hard-line Islamists."
Arms are being sent through cutouts and supposed Allies and just like Fast and Furious the lack of over-site from this Government is leading
us to arm the very people that are slaughtering their own people. We of course stay above the fray.
This is the result of this Administrations Foreign Policy or really the lack thereof...
