New evidence emerged this week that yet another terror group operating in Syria possesses BGM-71 TOW anti-tank missiles that had been provided by the U.S. to so-called “vetted moderate” rebel groups.
On Tuesday, the Caucasus Emirate posted photos of themselves using a TOW system on Twitter. The U.S. designated the Caucasus Emirate a terrorist organization in May 2011.

Regarding this development, Caleb Weiss of Long War Journal reported:
A fighter from the Caucasus Emirate in Syria, an al Qaeda-affiliated group, released a photo showing ownership of a US-made BGM-71 anti-tank missile. It is unclear when or where the photograph was taken, but it is likely recent and taken in northern Syria. A note card reading “Imarat Kavkaz” or “Caucasus Emirate” in Chechen can be seen in the foreground.
I’ve noted repeatedly here at PJ Media of the heavy weapons provided by the U.S. to “vetted moderate” Syrian rebel groups falling into the hands of terrorist groups, including ISIS:
The outstanding question is when these U.S. heavy weapons will be used against Americans.
