Obama Administration Plan to Aid Syrian Rebels Is Classified

The public can't know about how we fund al-CIA-duh, I guess:
In fact, ask individual members of the committee, who represent 117 million people in 14 states, how they stood on the plan to use the CIA to funnel weapons to the rebels and they are likely to respond with the current equivalent of “none of your business:” It’s classified.
Those were, in fact, the words Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., chair of the committee, used when asked a few days before the approval was granted to clarify her position for her constituents. She declined. It’s a difficult situation, she said. And, “It’s classified.”
She was not alone. In a string of interviews over days, members of both the Senate intelligence committee or its equivalent in the House were difficult to pin down on their view of providing arms to the rebels. The senators and representatives said they couldn’t give an opinion, or at least a detailed one, because the matter was classified.
It’s an increasingly common stance that advocates of open government say undermines the very principle of a representative democracy.

Typically Orwellian DC.

they aren't "rebels". they are islamic extremists paired with foreign mercenaries. basically terrorists. the same "rebels" that destroyed libya and are also trying in egypt.

so now we are supposedly fighting a war on terror while simultaneously supplying the terrorists with weapons?
and nobody says boo.
