U.S.-Backed Syrian Rebel Group Collapses, U.S.-Supplied Weapons End Up in Al-Qaeda Hands. Unexpectedly.

Reports this week revealed that a U.S.-backed Syrian rebel group, Harakat al-Hazm, had officially dissolved itself under pressure from Jabhat al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda’s official affiliate in Syria, and many of the fighters have joined up with the jihadist Islamic Front. With the group’s dissolution, the U.S.-provided TOW anti-tank missiles have reportedly falled into the hands of al-Nusra.

    Shocking. What a completely unexpected development. No one could have foreseen this.

    • I nearly fell over at this unexpected turn of events!

        Unexpected? Hardly! What else was expected?
        Every army commander would have foreseen this. I’ve seen American weapons in the hands of these savages in pics for two years and cringed before the steam came out my ears. Hillary did it.

      How does she remember to breath? She is so stupid sounding.

    • Or lack of weaponry evidently

      Or feeling ‘excluded’…(Justin Trudeau’s explanation of jihad).

    Wow it’s not like every conservative blog in the world didn’t see this one coming.

    Why did we provide them TOW missiles? It’s not like they were fighting against tanks.

      Obama sent the TOWs for Al-Qaeda to sell to Hamas; Hamas will use them against Egyptian tanks when they try to seize the Suez Canal.

        There are too many actors and too many pages missing from my copy.

    This is only unexpected if you’re a cretin, like Obama and everyone in his administration.

  • MannieP

    I am shocked. Shocked, I tell you.

    Every time such weapons are provided by Emperor Barry to his “new friends”, you would think it would be prudent to equip the gifts with some sort of built in sat phone circuitry to cause a severe meltdown if the items weren’t being expended as originally intended.
