US puts jets in Jordan, fuels Russian fear of Syria no-fly zone




The CIA is preparing to deliver arms and ammunition, but not heavy weapons, to the Syrian rebels by way of Turkey and Jordan. President Obama's deputy national security adviser said the US would not send troops to Syria, and would not send heavy weapons for fear they would fall into the hands of the Al Nusrah Front, al Qaeda's Syrian affiliate. The US decision to help arm the rebels may indicate the US will no longer ask Qatar and Saudi Arabia to refrain from supplying the antitank and antiaircraft weapons sought by the rebels.

US Is Said to Plan to Send Weapons to Syrian Rebels




The White House promised to step up military aid to Syrian rebels after confirming that the Assad regime has used chemical weapons, including sarin gas, in small-scale attacks. Gen. Keith Alexander, head of the National Security Agency, said the NSA's broad electronic records gathering program has disrupted dozens of terrorist attacks, including an attempt to bomb New York subways and a planned attack on a Danish newspaper, and he promised to reveal more data on thwarted attacks. Criminal charges are being prepared against Edward Snowden, believed to be hiding in Hong Kong, who leaked information about the highly classified program. Alexander said the leak had already caused "grave harm" that made the US and its allies less safe.
