Check it out.
ABC gives you the straight scoop about what's happened to the first batch of "moderate rebels" that the US has trained up, at a cost of half a billion dollars.
Most international news sites have had this story for a couple of days, but it's finally found its way to America.
This program to train "moderate" Syrian rebels was supposed to have had 5,000 graduates by now.
They've had 54.
And if you read around a little, it quickly becomes apparent that all 54 are by now dead or have joined up with the bad guys...
Because nobody could see that coming!
And of course they've taken their training and their state-of-the-art US supplied weapons along with them.
Heads should roll, but instead, you'll get a whole wagonload of bullshit about terror and terrorism and terrorists and, by the way, this fight against terrorists might need American boots on the ground after all...
Just for a while.
