The Al-Nusra Front, Al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria, has released a grateful video, where they openly thank the Free Syrian Army (FSA), which the US has touted as a “moderate opposition group”, for supplying them with US-made anti-tank TOW missiles (“Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided”).
It’s no secret that the American CIA has been supplying the FSA with TOW missiles. The total cost of each of these missiles from Raytheon, is a staggering $58,908.00. Over the past few months we have seen dozens of these missiles used on targets of opportunity, inside of Syria.
It isn’t possible for us, or anyone else, to get an exact number of the amount of TOW missiles supplied to rebel forces. It is currently believed, from reports in October of 2015, that over 500 TOW missiles have been used by CIA-vetted rebels.
Saudi Arabia; the lone Middle Eastern nation with whom no one can even begin to explain where the U.S. really stands. Are they friend or foe?
