While it has been known for sometime that the terrorists have had Stinger missiles being bought for by Saudi Arabia and Qatar this is the first admission from the corporate media that the CIA is smuggling them to the terrorists.The revelation comes from an AP article printed on the UK Mirror which reveals the reveals that 14 stinger missiles smuggled by the CIA were partly funded by Saudi Arabia.

It appears that yes the CIA is helping the rebels and i am sure that this is not news to most of you I have a felling like this is going to blow up in Americas face one day Because lets face it the last time the U.S. gave a rebel army weapons it completely blew back in its face

What do you think will happen will the missiles eventfully be used against us and why are they funding them in the first place

Edit Sorry for not posting the link to the full story my computer for some reason is not letting me post it

Real good strategy, give everyone bigger weapons to cause even more damage and death.

Next story we are going to see is rebels have accidently shot down a turkish aircraft patrolling the border....good luck explaining that one.

My concern (which I have voiced in other threads) is that the FSA will get their hands on the chemical weapon stockpile and then use them, then Assad will get blamed which Obama already said would be a line that should never be crossed.

It's a very complicated situation over there, I just read a headline that the violence is spilling into Lebanon as well.

Yes thats a very interesting theory. It is possible the US will use the rebels as its proxy group and encourage them to get their hands on biological weapons and make it seem like Assad is using them to justify some kind of intervention.

I saw this article this morning from the washington post:

Obama warns Syria of ‘enormous consequences’ over use of chemical, biological weapons


President Barack Obama said Monday the U.S. would reconsider its opposition to military involvement in the Syrian civil war if President Bashar Assad’s beleaguered regime deploys or uses chemical or biological weapons. He called such action a “red line” for the United States.

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Obama said the use of such weapons of mass destruction would considerably widen a conflict that has already dragged on for a year-and-a-half and killed some 20,000 people, according to activists. Syria possesses extensive chemical and biological weapons stockpiles and has threatened to use them if the country comes under foreign attack.

“That’s an issue that doesn’t just concern Syria. It concerns our close allies in the region, including Israel. It concerns us,” Obama said, also acknowledging the possibility that militant groups might acquire some of those weapons. “We cannot have a situation where chemical or biological weapons are falling into the hands of the wrong people.”


The US has certainly brought the biological/chemical weapon issue to the forefront of the debate. Could this be the justification they are waiting for as you have infered?

Thanks for sharing the link, I first heard of the story last night where Obama talked about the "red line".

I have long considered the possibilities if the FSA were to get their hands on the chemical stockpiles, it could have some really grave consequences.

Let's hope it doesn't happen.

ETA:

Here is the clahes into Lebanon I mentioned.


Two people were killed and more than 60 wounded in clashes between Sunni Muslims and Alawites in Lebanon's northern city of Tripoli in another spill over from the war in neighbouring Syria, security and medical sources said on Tuesday.

Gunmen in the Sunni district of Bab al-Tabbaneh and their Alawite rivals in Jebel Mohsen exchanged gun and grenade fire in sporadic fighting overnight and into the day, despite action by Lebanese army troops deployed in the port city, residents said.

It seems that the "FSA" would like this to be a regional wide conflict that spreads to neighboring nations.

I'm not surprised.

No one here have any compassion for the Syrian children?

This isnt exactly news , yet ts definately a great confirmation....
Weve all suspected this one....
The funny thing though.....14 ?
I sure hope they are easy to operate because there will be no practice shots.....
14 Stingers to win the war?
Effectively shutting down the heliborn attacks which the FSA have endured.....
Should these be used against them.....
This doesnt sound like much, with tanks artillery and troops all still hard at t, but those attack helicopters can put the right ordnance onto a dime if flown by a good pilot.
Let us not forget the stingers turned the tide the afghan war wth Russia....
Too scarey to think an Isreali scout plane getting one up the tailpipe....that would really throw the fat in the fire.....

The one that sez nearly a year and a half after the start of the Syrian uprising, tens of thousands of people have fled the country? Until recently, most found shelter in homes with friends, relatives and even strangers. But as the numbers increase, several neighbouring countries are opening new camps to accommodate them?

Which goes to show that the regime is horrible and the US has to do something!

I think you made a bit of a leap.

Something horrible happening !=! the US needing to intervene militarily...

It's not that I agree or disagree with your desire for the US to get involved, I just don't think that logically one follows the other automatically... ask most of Africa.

I'm not too sure about the sources nevertheless, its not a mystery as you know it. Whats the point even in reporting this as news by the media is puzzling


US President Barack Obama has signed a order authorizing support for Free Syrian Army.
The President Obam's order permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide assistance to help oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Hmm... that link tracks back to this story:

www.reuters.com...

Which says, in part:


The White House is for now apparently stopping short of giving the rebels lethal weapons, even as some U.S. allies do just that.


and


On Tuesday, NBC News reported that the Free Syrian Army had obtained nearly two dozen surface-to-air missiles, weapons that could be used against Assad's helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. Syrian government armed forces have employed such air power more extensively in recent days. NBC said the shoulder-fired missiles, also known as MANPADs, had been delivered to the rebels via Turkey. On Wednesday, however, Bassam al-Dada, a political adviser to the Free Syrian Army, denied the NBC report, telling the Arabic-language TV network Al-Arabiya that the group had "not obtained any such weapons at all." U.S. government sources said they could not confirm the MANPADs deliveries, but could not rule them out either. Current and former U.S. and European officials previously said that weapons supplies, which were being organized and financed by Qatar and Saudi Arabia, were largely limited to guns and a limited number of anti-tank weapons, such as bazookas. Indications are that U.S. agencies have not been involved in providing weapons to Assad's opponents. In order to do so, Obama would have to approve a supplement, known as a "memorandum of notification, to his initial broad intelligence finding.


Until we get more than an unnamed source, I'll file this in the "maybe" file.

It's certainly not an AP story as far as I can tell.

The censored link, obviously Alexander Higgins blog confused the photo sourced from AP attached to Chris Hughes' Mirror story.

Don't confuse the Reuters link from Aug 1, this fresh news traces to Aug 18 and 19 and 'confirms' the missiles.

It seems The Mirror either got the info from Al Arabiya, or reported using their own source in same day of Al Arabiya's report.

Al Arabiya's report was quoted by Saudi Al-Sharq al- Awsat newspaper.

Yeah, I'm still gonna be sceptical until I see more proof... the media tends t screw up this sort of thing too often for me to be comfortable...

Whether the CIA should or shouldn't is a whole other question

What? Most damn near all of the massacres against the children have been done by the FSA. How is Egypt doing with the Muslim Brotherhood in power? How is Libya doing since they murdered Gaddafi? Or what about Iraq, another car bomb went off in there you know, more lives lost
.

It's a shell game, layers in layers. They can't storm the ME to exert their control so they are trying to take them down through proxy. These are the mercenaries the CIA and other groups are sending throughout the ME.

And Iran is a big country with mountains to the West. Pakistan and Afghanistan to the east and Turkmenistan to the North. Talk about a difficult time for a landing party. Can't invade a country with fire at your flank, war via proxy is the best option.

So all they are doing is firing up the propaganda machine in the West and you and the other will believes whatever lies they have, i mean it must be true if CNN says it right? They simply tell you what they want you to hear meanwhile it leaves them free to do, well we've all seen what they do. Topple countries and governments who won't become their bitch. And back on planet earth.. China and Russia has been rubbing elbows with the Africans. And how do we respond? North African Command!

*sighs* I swear.. they're all morons.
