US jet over Syria and Iraq

Six steps to defeating ISIS without the US and Britain bombing Iraq or Syria

Phyllis Bennis
"Arming the so-called “moderate” opposition in Syria doesn’t mean supporting the good guys. It means sending arms to the Free Syrian Army which, according to the New York Times, “went on to behead six ISIS fighters…and then posted the photographs on Facebook.” "
The New York Times* says so, but the NBC report** does not, and I can't find anyone else who does. 
Clay Claiborne's latest, How a 24hr truce to pick up bodies became a non-aggression pact between ISIS & Syrian rebels,*** is about a similar story "being spread like wildfire by groups that hitherto have shown little concern for the 200,000 Syrians that have died in the last three years as a result of dictator Bashar al-Assad's vicious attempts to cling to power."
