President Barack Obama has signed a covert directive authorizing U.S. support for Syrian rebels battling President Bashar al-Assad’s forces, U.S. officials told CNN on Wednesday.

The secret order, referred to as an intelligence “finding,” allows for clandestine support by the CIA and other agencies.

It was unclear when the president signed the authorization for Syria, but the sources said it was within the past several months.

    Seems like there isn’t any such thing as clandestine operations in this country anymore. Why can’t the government keep the media from finding out about these things? Especially with Navy SEAL missions, the public knows way too much about how, where, and when US clandestine and special ops units operate.
