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
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
