Rhodes was recently interviewed by Mehdi Hasan of The Intercept in an effort to promote his new book The World As It Is: Inside the Obama White House.
Hasan directly asked about the Obama Administration's involvement in arming jihadists in Syria. Rhodes tried to tip toe and dance around the question before making a stunning admission:
MH: Oh, come on, but you were coordinating a lot of their arms. You know, the U.S. was heavily involved in that war with the Saudis and the Qataris and the Turks.
