Study Shows ISIS Fighting with U.S. Military Weapons Supplied to Syrian “Rebels”

Turns out, ISIS is fighting with weapons stamped, “Property of US Govt.”  Anyone who is surprised by this, raise your hand.

Seeing no one, here’s the story:

The study by the London-based small-arms research organisation Conflict Armament Research documented weapons seized by Kurdish forces from militants in Iraq and Syria over a 10-day period in July.

The report said the jihadists disposed of “significant quantities” of US-made small arms including M16 assault rifles and included photos showing the markings “Property of US Govt”.

It also found that anti-tank rockets used by IS in Syria were “identical to M79 rockets transferred by Saudi Arabia to forces operating under the Free Syrian Army umbrella in 2013″.

The question I have is, were they captured, or were they delivered?

Honestly, how many of these folks were the Syrian rebels?

I’m willing to wager that a lot of them were the people Sen. John McCain wanted to support back in the day.

What do you think?
