U.S. defense officials have confirmed that military equipment issued by the United States to Syrian rebel fighters has been funneled to an al Qaeda offshoot, raising new questions about the ways in which the Obama administration is safeguarding U.S. arms in the war-torn Middle Eastern country.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Obama has no plan to deal with anything in the Middle East, which is why Vladimir Putin has stepped up to take control of the region. Obama thought it would be a great idea to give money and weapons to a “Syrian rebel” group to fight ISIS. Today the Pentagon confirms that those weapons have just been handed over by the “rebels” to the Nusra Front. Look like the “JV Team” is now varsity. Now that’s a plan.

A commander in the New Syrian Forces (NSF), a group being trained and equipped by the United States, was found to have distributed at least 25 percent of the force’s U.S.-provided hardware to the Nusra Front, a terrorist organization affiliated with al Qaeda.

The equipment, which included U.S.-issued ammunition and pick-up trucks, was “surrendered” to a Nusra Front affiliate in order to ensure that the rebel fighters could pass freely through territories controlled by the terrorist group, the Pentagon said.

A Syrian opposition commander who was leading a group of NSF recruits “self-reported to coalition forces that under threat from al Nusra, they surrendered six trucks and ammunition to a suspected al Nusra Front intermediary to secure safe passage after being told that unless he surrendered some of his NSF equipment, his unit would be ambushed en route to their new location,” according to Col. Patrick Ryder, a spokesman for U.S. Central Command, who provided on Monday with a timeline of what took place.

“We will look at what we can do to prevent such a situation in the future, but given the complexity of the battlefield it is not possible to eliminate all risk,” Ryder added. “We are using all means at our disposal to look into what exactly happened and determine the appropriate response.”

The arms exchange occurred after a group of around 70 NSF graduates crossed into Syria on the morning of Sept. 20, according to the Pentagon.

The following day, the Syrian commander relocated the NSF fighters to a new location inside Syria.

“The Syrian commander began to relocate his NSF fighters to a different town,” the Pentagon said. “According to information provided by the Syrian commander to the Coalition, he had been contacted by a suspected al Nusra Front intermediary and told that unless he surrendered some of his NSF equipment, his unit would be ambushed en route to the new location.”

At that point, six vehicles were transferred to a Nusra Front intermediary. This commander later “provided a portion of the ammunition that had been issued to his NSF fighters to the suspected Nusra Front intermediary,” the Pentagon said.

Ryder said that while U.S. and other collation forces do all they can to prevent this type of incident, they cannot “control every situation.” source
