U.S.-Trained Rebels Fail In Syria
AMMAN [MENL] -- Another U.S.-led operation against the regime of President
Bashar Assad has failed.
Western intelligence sources said a CIA-trained Sunni rebel force
financed by Saudi Arabia was ambushed in southern Syria on Feb. 15. They
said the rebels, linked to the Free Syrian Army, came under heavy fire from
Islamist militias within hours of crossing the Jordanian border into Syria
in an operation meant to bolster the rebels around Damascus.
