Obama waives ban on arming terrorists to allow aid to Syrian opposition
President Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to "vetted" opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.
Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, which was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., in 2001. Assad's regime is backed by Iran and Hezbollah.
The president, citing his authority under the Arms Export Control Act, announced today that he would "waive the prohibitions in sections 40 and 40A of the AECA related to such a transaction."

As I said it before the decision is made at the time when NON lethal aid announced.
That period was to establish the logistics, storage and means of transport. Then lethal aid announced overnight.
I know no one likes it when I say this but as far as I am concerned Islamist rebels are used for regime change and the methods are being escalated over time.
An agreement made with Russia over the chemical arms, immediate strikes on hold but at the same time military aid escalated.
And what happens when those weapons surface elsewhere and are used against US troops?

I like how this article doesnt list any sources, or when and how Obama did this. It simply states he did it. Quality reporting. I call BS until this appears somewhere else, and with a bit more explanation.
How reliable is this? Are there other sources?
Same, googled and not even fox picked it up.
