    Default $500M to Syrian Rebels ?????

    Syria Crisis: Obama Requests $500M to Train, Equip Rebels - NBC News


    Syria Crisis: Obama Requests $500M to Train, Equip Rebels

    By Andrea Mitchell, Courtney Kube and Daniel Arkin

    President Obama is asking Congress to approve $500 million to train and equip moderate Syrian rebels struggling to oust President Bashar Assad after more than three years of civil war.

    The opposition rebels would be vetted before being given assistance, according to a statement from National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden. Hayden said the funds would "help defend the Syrian people, stabilize areas under opposition control, facilitate the provision of essential services, counter terrorist threats, and promote conditions for a negotiation settlement."

    The request marks the first time the Obama administration would be overtly supplying weapons to the Syrian rebel forces in a program run by the Pentagon under the military budget, according to U.S. official. It has the advantage of enabling the U.S. government to send more sophisticated weapons, and allows it the ability to discuss the program publicly to allies and congressional critics.

    But sources told NBC News the administration has been covertly arming the rebels for the last year through the CIA, providing opposition forces with less sophisticated weaponry in a program that had been advocated years earlier by both former General David Petraeus and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    Enforcement, NOT Amnesty!!!!!!

    "If they’re going to come here illegally, apply for & receive assistance through a corrupted Government agency encouraging this lawless behavior, work under the table & send billions of dollars each year back to their families in Mexico, while bleeding local economies dry, protest in our streets waving their Mexican flags DEMANDING rights, while I have to press ’1′ for English, then they need to be shipped back to where they came from!" -Chad Miller

    We should drop our fearless leader in the middle of Syria without a canteen.
