Yea this’ll end well…. US Screens 1,200 Syrian Rebels Recruited to Fight ISIL

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States has been screening about 1,200 moderate Syrian rebels as candidates for a US training program to fight Islamic State (ISIL) terrorists, US Department of Defense Press Secretary John Kirby said.

“The 1,200 come from numerous groups, not any one group. We are working our way through the screening process,” Kirby said during a press briefing on Wednesday. “It [screening] is going to be individual by individual and that’s going to take some time.”
