Pentagon leaders backed plan to arm Syrian rebels
2/07/13 - The nation's top military commander and the secretary of Defense testified Thursday that they both supported arming Syria's rebels but were overruled by President Obama.
The administration has opposed arming the rebels in Syria because it has said the weapons could fall into the wrong hands. It has repeatedly pushed for regional powers to take the lead in resolving the crisis.
