    Fast and Furious Part Deux: CIA Weapons for Syrian Rebels End Up on Jordanian Black Market
    A botched weapons program run by the CIA and several Arab intelligence agencies to arm Syrian rebels is being compared to the ATF's botched gun-running operation Fast and Furious, which ran guns to Mexican drug cartels.

    A New York Times and Al Jazeera joint investigation found that weapons shipped into Jordan by the CIA and Saudi Arabia as part of the classified program known as "Timber Sycamore" were systematically stolen by Jordanian intelligence operatives and sold on the black market.

    According to the Times, this program, which began in 2013, is separate from the one approved by Congress in September of 2014 that the Pentagon set up to train rebels to fight Islamic State fighters.

    UncleMorgan I like peeling bananas and (occasionally) people.

    I'm not surprised, just terribly, terribly, envious.

    This is your criminal government. They arm the bad guys. They are evil. What is anyone going to do about it? There is no doubt that they are killing innocent people. You want to find evil and hunt it down and be the super hero? Its not hard to find them but who is actually going to do anything about it...

    The easy ones are on the field of battle or just being predators in conquered lands. The ones we want are on the subways and streets of the "free world." Not quite as easy. One thing is certain, zero will continue to sit on his "no such thing as a radical moslem" hands
