Secret CIA effort in Syria faces large funding cut – The Washington Post
Key lawmakers have moved to slash funding of a secret CIA operation to train and arm rebels in Syria, a move that U.S. officials said reflects rising skepticism of the effectiveness of the agency program and the Obama administration’s strategy in the Middle East.
The House Intelligence Committee recently voted unanimously to cut as much as 20 percent of the classified funds flowing into a CIA program that U.S. officials said has become one the agency’s largest covert operations, with a budget approaching $1 billion a year.
This was in 2015, but proves CIA is active in Syria.. What are they doing there? Arming, training and supplies terrorists, aka ISIS.
