     How a 24hr truce to pick up bodies became a non-aggression pact
     between ISIS & Syrian rebels

Today *Democracy for America* sent this out in an email <http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/09/16/Liberal-Group-Urges-No-Vote-on-Obama-s-Syria-Request>:

    Recent reports have claimed some of the so-called /"moderate"/
    Syrian rebels that would receive money and weapons under this plan
    have agreed to a /"non-aggression pact"/ with ISIS. It's possible
    that, despite the president's best intentions, weapons sent to
    Syrian rebels could find their way into the hands of ISIS -- and
    be used to target Americans.

By most reliable accounts, one group, Sons of Golan, associated with the Free Syrian Army, that had been waging a heroic and hard fought campaign to rid an area near Damascus of ISIS agreed to a 24 hour truce so that both sides could remove their dead from the battlefield and bury them, after which the battle between the two forces resumed. This led to widespread reports in the western anti-war movement that the Free Syrian Army generally had concluded, in words design to invoke memories of the opportunistic agreement made between Hitler and Stalin, a /"non-aggression pact"/ with the extreme jihadist group ISIS in Syria.
