Good thing this was kept secret. Al Reuters has the secret exclusive
President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for rebels seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government, U.S. sources familiar with the matter said.
Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the rebels oust Assad.
So, now the Syrian regime, and their Iranian backers, know that US agents could possibly be in Syrian assisting the rebels.
This and other developments signal a shift toward growing, albeit still circumscribed, support for Assad’s armed opponents – a shift that intensified following last month’s failure of the U.N. Security Council to agree on tougher sanctions against the Damascus government.
The White House is for now apparently stopping short of giving the rebels lethal weapons, even as some U.S. allies do just that.
What, is the O admin. going to give them Tasers, or possibly Nerf guns? What’s the big deal? Actually, they’re giving them communications tech.
Fortunately, other secret stuff was exposed. more
