Former Obama Adviser Ben Rhodes Drops a Bombshell: Yes, Obama Armed Jihadists in Syria

The man credited with writing the Benghazi talking points, Ben Rhodes,  served as Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications under President Barack Obama.

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:

So Rhodes just tried to pass most of the blame on to Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, but did confess that we were partly culpable in providing arms to jihadists in Syria.

So much for the “moderate” rebel story…

Mr. Rhodes, it’s not your fault. Someone should have provided you with talking points before the interview.
