The U.S. has not substantiated these claims.

Husseiniyah, Iraq, Oct. 31 . This was the second large EFP
cache discovered by coalition forces in Iraq in the past week.

However, if this later turns out to be true, the media should ask why it was done.
Why would the U.S. need to arm and train Islamic terrorists on how to use anti-armor weapons when that is what they heavily used against U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan?
It doesn’t matter if the new alleged training involves new types of anti-armor weaponry. The terrorists already have shown they have the supply and capability to use (effectively) anti-armor weapons.
In fact, if the United States would stay out of the fight entirely and instead let other Muslims arm and train the terrorists fighting in Syria, the world would learn which countries are supplying which arms to the terrorists.
Then, the world could compare that data to which arms the terrorists used against the U.S. in Iraq and Afghanistan. And from that hard-to-refute evidence, the world would see which nations warred against the United States for the past ten-plus years.
