Key lawmakers have moved to slash funding of a secret CIA operation to train and arm rebels in Syria, a move that U.S. officials said reflects rising skepticism of the effectiveness of the agency program and the Obama administration’s strategy in the Middle East.

The House Intelligence Committee recently voted unanimously to cut as much as 20 percent of the classified funds flowing into a CIA program that U.S. officials said has become one the agency’s largest covert operations, with a budget approaching $1 billion a year.

I don't know which is worse: training people in conflict and war, or denying it.

Noted. Thanks for posting, Nancy.
What a horrible mess!.....that the U.S. just needs to get out of, as well as enormously decrease CIA funding.
