US-trained Syria rebels do a deal with al-Qaeda

A Division 30 statement made after the release of its fighters described Nusra Front as “brothers”, a sign that the moderate group is capitulating to the Islamists. It said it was on the “same page with all holy warriors in Syria”.

…Division 30 was to be the nucleus of new Syrian national army, composed of groups deemed more “moderate” by Western nations who fear the dominance of Islamist rebels in Syria. But the $US36 million ($49 million) program has been beset by troubles from its inception eight months ago.
