US-Armed Syrian Opposition "Surrenders" to Al Qaeda?

Via Sioux


Al Qaeda affiliates are suddenly now Islamic State (ISIS) affiliates, and entire groups of militants the US has been arming, funding, and training are "surrendering" to Al Qaeda, bringing along with them a large number of US weapons. Is this a failure of US foreign policy? Or is this simply a rhetorical means to explain away what appears to be an immense army of extremists the US is once again building up to direct at one of its enemies, just as it did in Afghanistan in the 1980's?  


  1. What a bunch of sissys. These guys have no balls whatsoever. They dont deserve their own nation if they cant stand to defend it. And if they wont fight for what is theirs then our troops need not help them. Never Surrender.
