Jordan is reluctant to host an expanded rebel instruction program
2014.07.13 05:03:49

Jordan, where the US Central Intelligence Agency has been covertly training Syrian rebels for more than a year, is reluctant to host an expanded rebel instruction program, US officials said.

Jordan's reticence, confirmed by four US officials, is a potentially serious setback for President Barack Obama's proposed $500 million initiative, announced in June, to train and arm moderate rebels fighting the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and al-Qaeda-linked groups.

It could signal a larger challenge in finding suitable nations willing to host the US-led training at a time of heightened tensions across much of the Middle East.

While US officials have not made a formal request to the Jordanian government, the country was widely considered a top choice to host the training due its close security relationship with Washington, proximity to neighboring Syria and pool of more than 600,000 Syrian refugees.

US officials and analysts said Jordan fears violent retaliation from Syria if its territory is used for overt training conducted by US military units.

John Brennan visited Kiev

White House confirms Russian media reports that CIA director was in Kiev over the weekend:

John Brennan visited Kiev as part of a routine trip to Europe and any claims that it was anything other than that by Russia were "absurd", White House spokesman Jay Carney said on Monday. [AFP]

"We don't normally comment on the CIA director's travel but given the extraordinary circumstances in this case and the false claims being leveled by the Russians at the CIA we can confirm that the director was in Kiev as part of a trip to Europe," Carney told reporters. [Reuters]
