So far its being claimed that its "spies" basically. Painting targets for accuracy, avoiding collateral damage, etc. That and making contact with rebel elements to see who we're supporting.
But as Jeremy Scahill stated last night its less than a thousand rebels, so how realistic is it.
I don't have a problem with preventing a massacre, but I don't like where this is heading. Especially in light of what's going on in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.
