And keeps flowing. Or more aptly put, U.S. taxpayers fund Syrian jihadists. via U.S. Funded Syrian Relief Flowed Despite Radical Elements
A Syrian rebel group benefitting from $10 million in nonlethal American aid includes allies and supporters of radical Islamic groups who share the goal of toppling dictator Bashar al-Assad.
The aid, consisting mainly of food and medical supplies, is financed by a State Department grant and routed to the Free Syrian Army by an organization of Syrian Americans that simultaneously lobbies Congress for more rebel aid.
The Treasury Department granted a license to the Syrian Support Group (SSG) in 2012, allowing it to send goods to Syria despite U.S. economic sanctions against the country. The license expires at the end of July. In addition to the known radical ties held by some FSA leaders, there seems to be no public information to show where the $10 million in food and medical supplies went, or what steps are taken to ensure it did not fall into hands of some of those extremists.
Since the license was granted, no written reports have been produced showing which brigades have benefited from the SSG’s aid.
The SSG website says it became “the U.S. Government’s implementing partner” in distributing approximately $10 million in food, medical supplies and other items since last April. A picture posted on the SSG’s Twitter account in May shows members of the group unloading supplies in boxes marked “Halal” from a truck.
Some of the aid has been delivered using a cargo plane operated by the U.S. Air Force in conjunction with the State Department.
Not only are taxpayers funding jihad, they are funding it with sharia-compliant food delivered by taxpayer-funded U.S. military.

And that non-lethal aid? Remember WAPO reported:
So far, the U.S. has provided an estimated $117 million in nonlethal aid to the Syrian opposition, according to the White House.
The United States is providing Syrian rebels with [additional] $123 million in new nonlethal aid that may include body armor and other types of supplies that haven’t been part of the assistance package in the past.
The additional money will double the nonlethal assistance to the Syrian opposition as well as increase humanitarian aid. The nonlethal aid could include armored vehicles, night vision goggles and advanced communications equipment.
