    Obama waives ban on arming terrorists to allow aid to Syrian opposition.

    President Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to "vetted" opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.

    Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, which was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., in 2001. Assad's regime is backed by Iran and Hezbollah.

    I suppose this means ALL terrorist groups can be armed now. Corporations can once again sell their wares, should be good for our MIC, too.

    As with the military coup in Egypt, you simply change the terms used and the law does not stop you.

    If they are shooting at your enemy then they are freedom fighters, if they are shooting at you, or your friends, then they are terrorists. Quite simple, really.

    I want to start off by saying that I disagree with President Obamas decision to allow funding. On the other hand I'm just pumped to see the Obama haters come in and level him for the same exact thing that Bush did. It's always fun to be hypocritical!

    Well I'm an equal opportunity critic, I criticised both. Except I don't remember Bush arming the enemy he was fighting as Obama is, maybe I missed something and I really hate defending Bush.
