It is not covert if we all know of it

It is not covert if we all know of it—-this action is NOT good policy or long term far-sighted…the USA has always armed rebels who want democracy and are ANTI-autocrat, but then Trump is demonstrably PRO-autocrat:
from the The Week:
Trump reportedly ending covert CIA effort to arm moderate Syrian rebels
President Trump is ending a covert CIA program to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels fighting President Bashar al-Assad’s government, U.S. officials said Wednesday. The effort was key to former President Barack Obama’s Syria policy, and Russia, Assad’s most powerful ally, has long sought to get the U.S. to scrap it. Trump clashed with Russia after the U.S. accused Syria of using chemical weapons and launched a retaliatory strike against a Syrian air base. Officials said that phasing out the secret program is a reflection of Trump’s desire to find ways to collaborate with Russia in Syria.
