Al-Qaeda Seizes US Aid Warehouse From Syrian Rebels

The Obama Administration’s plans to provide arms and other equipment to secular Syrian rebels took a lot of planning, but finally began in earnest in recent days, as massive amounts of goods bound for the Free Syrian Army (FSA) started crossing the border from Reyhanli, Turkey into a warehouse in Atmeh, in northern Syria. The plan was controversial, with a lot of fear that the goods would eventually start falling into the hands of al-Qaeda and other Islamist factions, and that seems to have been putting it mildly, as the whole warehouse in Atmeh was almost immediately captured by al-Qaeda.

Al-Qaeda was working for the U.S. for a while. Then the U.S. started supporting the Rebels. Al-Qaeda became jealous that the U.S. started giving preference to the Rebels, a group who Al-Qaeda isn't fond of in the first place, because they were in some positions that were difficult for even Al-Qaeda to reach. So, it's like a couple of women fighting over a man.

Actually, its two factions of the CIA trying to out-do each other. CIA covertness inside the U.S. is so good that you almost never hear about it in this way when it happens over here.
