Kerry: There Is Evidence That Assad Has Played "Footsie" With ISIL

REP. DANA ROHRABACHER: Let me understand, the proposal that I seem to be seeing here is that we support the free Syrian Army and we build them up, and although it does have some good elements, there is every indication that it is riddled with radical Islamic terrorists, many of whom are more committed to fighting Assad's regime than fighting ISIl.
