Ok, now you all know I’ve been saying that the United States has been supporting the terrorists rebels in Syria to topple Assad’s regime. We also know that the road to Iran runs through Syria which is why we see the escalation of hostilities lately.
I don’t understand why Reuters or the White House would broadcast this if it was supposed to be “secret” support. The only reason I can think of is that the Obama administration has been supporting the rebels’ attempts at overthrowing Syria for a very long time and is just now having it put in the papers to give it some sort of legitimacy. This quote from Reuters gives credence to my theory.
Precisely when Obama signed the secret intelligence authorization, an action not previously reported, could not be determined.
The full extent of clandestine support that agencies like the CIA might be providing also is unclear.
