The U.S. has been supporting militant groups in Syria that have worked with and for terror groups like Al Qaeda and ISIS, and the equipment and resources provided to supposedly moderate rebels or countries end up in radicals’ hands all too often. This commonsense bill would put an end to that.
No one wants defense equipment paid for by the tax dollars of Americans to end up in the hands of terror groups like Al Qaeda or ISIS, but this bill is too restrictive. It makes coalition-building harder by preventing the U.S. from providing defense assistance to more moderate groups in Syria that fight Assad alongside the radicals.
