From today's NYT:
Lawmakers from both parties urged President Obama on Sunday to take stronger action in the Syrian civil war, with some Republicans calling on the president to arm rebel troops and possibly establish a no-fly zone and some Democrats seeking to step up humanitarian assistance.
There is not a single Syrian rebel group that is not either overtly aligned with Al Qaeda or infiltrated by it. Arming Syrian rebels is arming Al Qaeda.
