Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on Obama.
Short answer: They defected. All of them. Obama got played like a cheap ukulele.
Division 30, the touted group of American-trained Syrian fighters, betrayed the United States, turned over its arms to Jabhat al-Nusra, the al-Qaida affiliate operating in Syria and joined up with the enemy. Certainly they can help al qaeda train just like Americans now.
The U.S. Central Command said in a Monday statement that roughly 70 graduates of the “Syrian Train and Equip” program had re-entered Syria and would be fighting under the “New Syrian Forces” moniker. Then they all vanished.
Surprise! They joined up with al-Nusra members. al Qaida openly claims that Division 30 joined the rebel group.
“al-Nusra members are giddy with excitement, with assertions that Division 30 commander Anas Obaid “had tricked the coalition because he needed weapons… [and] promised to issue a statement repudiating Division 30, the coalition and those who trained him.”

So, how does one distract from such seriously bad news and complete failure?
How about insulting the Pope? That should do the trick.
