Dem Rep Calls Obama's Plan to Arm Syrian Rebels 'Lame'

Friday on MSNBC’s “José Díaz-Balart Live,” Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) said she voted against President Barack Obama’s plan to train and arm 3,000 to 5,000 Syrians in the Free Syrian Army because it is “lame.” 

Speier said, “It wasn’t a plan to actually, train and arm three-to-five thousand Syrians in the Free Syrian Army is not a plan. There are many within the establishment, former generals who said it was lame actually. If you were going to do it, you need to do at least 15,000. ISIL is making $3 million a day. We need to disrupt their line of income. and that means blowing up oil wells and the roads that they use to get those oil wells — get those oil tankers to shipment.”
