President Barack Obama is fooling Americans by claiming that the United States will fight the Islamic State (ISIS) with the help of moderate Syrian rebels, while boosting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, says former CIA analyst Fred Fleitz of the Langley Intelligence Group Network (LIGNET).

"The president had to choose between two evils — letting ISIS continue to thrive and murder or taking decisive military action," Fleitz told J.D.Hayworth on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV Monday.

"He decided to take the second step, but that second step meant he would be boosting the Assad regime when he attacked ISIS in Syria," he explained. "There's no way around it."

"He's trying to side step that reality by fooling the American people by saying we're going to work with these so-called moderate Syrian rebels to overturn the Assad regime," he said. "That's not going to happen."

According to the former CIA analyst, the Syrian rebels are "really weak" and "they have been infiltrated by Islamists."

"There are real concerns about this," Fleitz explained.

Especially problematic are the reports that the Syrian rebels "have been working with . . . the official al-Qaida franchise" in Syria, and "that the Free Syrian Army sold Steven Sotloff — the second American that was beheaded — to ISIS for about $25,000."
