Report: US to Train Syrian Rebels Against Terrorists


President Barack Obama has apparently decided to expand assistance to training of rebels against Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, according to a Thursday-evening report by the Washington Post. The subject is expected to come up during Obama's meeting with Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah on Friday.

Among the goals of the aid is to allow the rebels to fight against terrorist extremists. The training, to be overseen by the Central Intelligence Agency, would take place in Saudia Arabia, Jordan and Qatar.
