Chuck Todd to Samantha Power: Do the Syrian Rebels know we are training them to fight ISIS? (Video)

Chuck Todd went after Obama UN ambassador Samantha Power today on Meet the Press.
Todd backed Power into a corner on US funding of the Free Syrian Rebels.

Chuck Todd: Is that what the Free Syrian Army wants to do? I thought the Free Syrian Army was trying to fight Assad. That they’ve been fighting side-by-side in some cases. Do they know that that’s why we’re training them?

Samantha Power: Uh, they do. But, but may I add the training also will service these troops in the same struggle they’ve been in since the beginning of this conflict against the Assad regime(?)

Since July, the Obama-backed Free Syrian Army, Al Nusra Front, and ISIS have paired together in order to fight the Syrian Assad regime.

According to one Free Syrian Army commander, the combining of forces with ISIS was needed in order to achieve “the greater good.”
