Washington Arming Syrian Insurgents
Obama wants war. Expect it.
by Stephen Lendman
It's no surprise. It's an open secret. It's been ongoing since early last year directly and/or indirectly. Rhetorically supporting peace while waging war exposes Washington's transparent hypocrisy.
On June 15, the UK Daily Telegraph headlined "US holds high-level talks with Syrian rebels seeking weapons in Washington," saying:
In the past week, a Free Syrian Army (FSA) representative met with outgoing Syrian ambassador Robert Ford and special Syrian coordinator Frederick Hof at the State Department.
Meetings with senior National Security Council officials were also held.
FSA members want heavy weapons. They include anti-tank missiles and heavy machine guns.
