(The website of the Syrian Arab News Agency SANA is regularly blocked by Washington that doesn't stop its war propaganda and its financial and military aid to terrorist groups.
Some months ago, Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian terrorists. C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. Weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries to Syria.)
