Pentagon: We Found Only 60 ‘Moderate’ Syrian Rebels to Train

sputnikfeatured july 8

Speaking before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday, US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter publicly admitted that the Pentagon’s training efforts are a far cry away from their stated goal. The initial goal of the program was to train 3,000-5,000 fighters each year. So far, they have only been able to train 60 Syrian rebels.

But that’s not all.  At first it sounds as if Ashton Carter was admitting his failure to live up to the hype, but then he takes it one step further and lays the blame on Obama:

“It’s not that we’re doing nothing,” he added. “It’s that there is no compelling reason to believe that anything we are doing currently will be sufficient to achieve the president’s long-stated goal of degrading or ultimately destroying ISIL, either in the short term or the long term.”
