According to the Washington Post, our CIA is now supplying weapons to Syrian rebels.  I wonder if they're supplying stuff to the al Qaeda group Al Nusra Front?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/cia-begins-weapons-delivery-to-syrian-rebels/2013/09/11/9fcf2ed8-1b0c-11e3-a628-7e6dde8f889d_story.html

Quote :
The CIA has begun delivering weapons to rebels in Syria, ending months of delay in lethal aid that had been promised by the Obama administration, according to U.S. officials and Syrian figures. The shipments began streaming into the country over the past two weeks, along with separate deliveries by the State Department of vehicles and other gear — a flow of material that marks a major escalation of the U.S. role in Syria’s civil war.

The arms shipments, which are limited to light weapons and other munitions that can be tracked, began arriving in Syria at a moment of heightened tensions over threats by President Obama to order missile strikes to punish the regime of Bashar al-Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons in a deadly attack near Damascus last month.

I wonder how they plan to "track" weapons? I seem to remember a fiasco called Fast and Furious - and that happened in our own country and Mexico.

Nochain, let's put Holder in charge. He has experience in these matters.

That last post was tongue in cheek.

Here is an Op-Ed, well-written and attributed to Vladimir Putin.http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/12/opinion/putin-plea-for-caution-from-russia-on-syria.html?pagewanted=all
