U.S. Plans More Syrian Ops
NICOSIA [MENL] -- The United States, despite repeated setbacks, has been
preparing thousands of Syrian rebels for operations against the regime of
President Bashar Assad.
Opposition sources said the CIA has been working with Jordan and Saudi
Arabia to train and equip 10,000 Syrians to join the Sunni revolt against
Assad. They said the CIA wants to maintain a flow of up to 1,000 rebel
fighters from Jordan into Syria every two months.
