Extremism Export: US admits arms sent to Syria find jihadists.

Editor's Note: While the West, and the US in particular feigns surprise and panic over "revelations" that US coordinated arms and cash flowing from Qatar and Saudi Arabia are ending up in the hands of foreign extremists including Al Qaeda, infiltrating Syria, it is a fact that the US, Saudi Arabia and Israel have been explicitly planning to use these very extremist groups, and in fact began arming and funding them as early as 2007, according to interviews given by US and Saudi officials to journalist Seymour Hersh in his 2007 New Yorker article, "The Redirection."
