Yeah, if *we* are all on the same page, I don't think they will be pulling the wool over anyone else's eyes.

While we’re over there stocking Syrian Rebels with weapons, we might as well re-stock the Taliban.

Who says we aren't?  Either way, I'd venture a guess that these "arms" end up in the wrong hands sooner rather than later.
