    The geopolitics of the times is all one looks at with no regard to the future. You are right my friend.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Do you think this will continue?
    It does not seem impossible that US weapons were redirected. That danger was discussed months ago. And it does look as though the Administration has fared poorly in the whole thing, so why not in this too?

    We're not going to win any hearts and minds anyway, so who cares?

    I am of course assuming that a weapon that goes to ANY Syrian militant is probably going to ISIS.

    The TOWs I saw did not appear to be US and there was no confirmation.

    Apparently, such weapons are being supplied as a test program for keeping weapons out of extremists' hands.

    Do you have a link that specifically addresses the so called " test program" ? Or did you just make that up yourself when jango proved your previous post to be false/lie?

    Re: Paul: US has been arming ISIS in Syria

    Has President Obama forgotten about Osama Bin Laden already?

    "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
    George Santayana


    September 17, 2013
    The Obama administration waived provisions of a federal law which ban the supply of weapons and money to terrorists. The move is opening doors to supplying Syrian opposition with protection from chemical weapons.

    The Arms Export Control Act (AECA) allows the US president to waive provisions in Sections 40 and 40A, which forbid providing munitions, credit and licenses to countries supporting acts of terrorism. But those prohibitions can be waived "if the President determines that the transaction is essential to the national security interests of the United States."

    President Barrack Obama ordered such a waiver for supplying chemical weapons-related assistance to "select vetted members" of Syrian opposition forces, the administration announced on Monday.
    The Syrian opposition groups are increasingly dominated by radical Islamists, many of them foreign fighters who, the UN says, are involved in numerous crimes committed in Syria. According to estimates of defense consultancy IHS Jane's, more than a half of the forces fighting to topple President Bashar Assad government are jihadists. The US explicitly listed Al-Nusra Front, a powerful Al-Qaeda-linked part of the Syrian opposition, as a terrorist organization.

    Still, US politicians believe national intelligence community can ensure that the military assistance goes to the right hands.

    "Our intelligence agencies, I think, have a very good handle on who to support and who not to support," Senator Bob Corker said on CBS on Sunday. "And there's going to be mistakes. We understand some people are going to get arms that should not be getting arms. But we still should be doing everything we can to support the free Syrian opposition."
    Yes, we can: Obama waives anti-terrorism provisions to arm Syrian rebels ? RT USA
