    Intel estimates from whom? Who was interviewed?

    I would assume intel estimates from the Westen intelligence agencies and militants on the ground, but IDK though.

    We have no idea what intel estimates and we have no idea what activists and militants were interviewed.

    Nonetheless, the data handling company claims that nearly 50% of the rebels are moderate.

    Heya Mr I. that's what the link says.....also Lister did the Report. Moreover if you read the piece you will see it is stating that Moderates have an Islamist bent. Which lets not forget. Eco says his proof is.....John Kerry said so. That he is part of the US government and that he is to be believed over all other reports showing things aren't as Kerry stated.

    Some of the same people who refuse to believe the US Secretary of State have no problem believing a private data handling company with data from an unknown source.

    More reputable than the White House, always has been.

    You're now claiming that a random company, who does not reveal sources, is more reliable than the White House?

    Your loyalty is with corporations that refuse to reveal sources?
