Apparently the US Air Force air-dropped some weapons in a region controlled by ISIS.
An ISIS-associated YouTube account posted a new video online Tuesday entitled, “Weapons and munitions dropped by American planes and landed in the areas controlled by the Islamic State in Kobani.”
This must not be right – just because there is a video doesn’t prove anything:
The authenticity of this latest video could not be independently confirmed…
Exactly my point.
Let’s ask the question directly; it doesn’t get any more direct than straight from the top:
On Monday, White House Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes said the U.S. government was confident that the emergency airdropped supplies for the Kurdish forces near Kobani were falling into the right hands.
“We feel very confident that, when we air drop support as we did into Kobani… we’ve been able to hit the target in terms of reaching the people we want to reach,” Rhodes told CNN.
There you have it; the White House is “very confident” that the weapons “were falling into the right hands.”
