What We Don't Know About Syrian Rebels Dwarfs What We Do

Well, we can all relax now. Senator John McCain, who was wrong about Iraq, wrong about the surge in Iraq, wrong about the surge in Afghanistan, wrong about Libya, and wrong about most everything else pertaining to U.S. security, has "vetted" the Syrian rebels to whom he now wants to send arms. Of course, the last big vetting he did is now back home, watching Russia from her house. Unfortunately, President Obama has also bought into the idea of sending arms, and tomorrow Congress begins the process of approving (or denying) funds to arm Syrian "moderates." And what of these Syrian moderates that we're going to arm, after having been vetted by Senator McCain? Can we trust them to use our arms to help us fight ISIS?
