- Someone Is Lying: Obama Says Not Arming Syrian Rebels, Syrian Rebels Say He Is!
by Tyler Durden, www.zerohedge.com
As we noted yesterday, President Obama is saying he is contemplating arming and training Syrian rebels (just the ‘moderates’ which will be identified by their smiles). However, as the following PBS Frontline documentary exposes, the Syrian rebels themselves say they are already armed and trained by US in the use of sophisticated weapons and fighting techniques, including, one rebel said, “how to finish off soldiers still alive after an ambush.” The interviews are the latest evidence that after more than three years of warfare, the United States has stepped up the provision of lethal aid to the rebels, as PBS notes “it appears the Obama administration is allowing select groups of rebels to receive US-made anti-tank missiles.” So who is lying? Obama (again) or the Syrian rebels (who show US-made supplies in the following clips).
The whole interview is noteworthy and damning for the administration but the good stuff starts around 8:00 (top of post).
