    A small number of C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey, helping allies decide which Syrian opposition fighters across the border will receive arms to fight the Syrian government, according to American officials and Arab intelligence officers.

    The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the officials said.

      from the rebels.

      From the article you offer as proof  "The Obama administration has said it is not providing arms to the rebels"

      The CIA is in Turkey to keep the rebels from receiving heavy weapons, as I have pointed out elsewhere.

      But you keep offering up the same old empty "proof"

        You really don't know how to read, or understand WTF is going on.  

        The CIA is in Turkey to keep the rebels from receiving heavy weapons
        Small weapons aren't weapons, only heavy weapons are...so Obama is not supplying weapons to the Syrian Opposition and is actively supporting Assad.

        So ends another episode of Clay Claiborne "hyperbole theater."

        I don't know why I bother to stop comment in these diaries.

        I'm outta here
