    This is working out as well as ‘Fast and Furious’.

    From Marc Thiessen. Marc Thiessen: The new Middle East coverup: Biden caught in Syria debate falsehood - The Washington Post

    First there was the Libya coverup. Now, we have the Syria coverup.

    In last week’s vice presidential debate, Joe Biden asserted that the United States was working to isolate al-Qaeda in Syria by ensuring that aid was directed to moderate elements of the Syrian opposition. “We are working hand and glove with the Turks, with the Jordanians, with the Saudis, and with all the people in the region attempting to identify the people who deserve the help so that when Assad goes — and he will go — there will be a legitimate government that follows on, not an al-Qaeda-sponsored government that follows on,” Biden declared.

    "...according to a report in this morning’s New York Times, Biden’s statement was not true.

    “Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster, according to American officials and Middle Eastern diplomats,” the Times reports."

    Why are you trying to take credit for the whole Syrian rebel army? They made it their way themselves and KSA arms them a little bit. Most of their weapons are their own.
