WASHINGTON — 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… (snip)

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.

  1. Seems suspicious and odd to me to mention that MANPADS are not included. Why not a full list of things not included. I mean, Nuclear weapons are probably not included either, nor are chemical weapons I hope…

  2. What is a “moderate” rebel? Your either a rebel or your not?
    The United States Government are supplying terrorists arms against the Syrian government. They can’t hide that fact by calling them “Moderates”.

  3. fast an fast and furious someone should be held accountable thsomeone should be held accountable they said and here they are right behind the American peoples back delivering weapons to the opposition

  4. Technology will be the Achilles heel the American government and that is a fact they will lose and lose big this is ridiculous this thing with giving weapons to other countries and giving the money and all they do is fight with one another what good is this what are we going to accomplish greed death congress applys it well as they seem fit to do so.

  5. Many of those weapons going to those “moderate” rebels end up being used against US soldiers. This is treason, yet again.

    Question:
    Anyone know that since the US Constitution requires the Militia of the several states (“We the People”) to enforce the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution can the Militia use the CONSTITUTIONAL Sheriff’s of each state to assist in enforcing the laws of our land not just in the state that they are located in (under guarantee’s each state a republican form of government… and “the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union” and each state’s Constitution is the highest law of that state except in the few instances the US Constitution and all that is in Pursuance thereof it are supreme)?

    If so, what excuse is there to not arrest those who are criminals and traitors within our governments?

    I know that they can be used by and with the Sheriffs of each state to enforce that state’s laws and the US Constitution they be used WITH the Militia of the several states in our nation?

    US Constitution, Article 1, Clause 15: “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel invasions”.
