Obama Authorizes Support for Syria's Bloody Butchers
August 1, 2012 • 11:25PM

Reuters reported this evening that Obama had signed a secret "Presidential finding" authorizing US support for Syrian rebels; it broadly permists the CIA and other government agencies to provide support to help them oust Assad. But indications are that in order to provide them weapons, Obama would have to approve a supplement, known as a "memorandum of notification," and apparently has not done so.

Pursuant to the finding, the US is collaborating with a "secret command center" in Adana, a Turkish city near the Syria border which is also home to American Incirlik airbase.
