Since July, the Obama-backed Free Syrian Army, Al Nusra Front, and ISIS have paired together in order to fight the Syrian Assad regime.
According to one Free Syrian Army commander, the combining of forces with ISIS was needed in order to achieve “the greater good.”
Since around that time ISIS has paraded around the Caliphate in their brand new Toyota Hilux trucks.
Paid for by US taxpayers.

The Hilux, a pickup truck Toyota has built since the late 1960s, isn’t available in the US, but it’s popular around the globe, including with insurgent groups such as the Taliban, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, and now ISIS.
In April the US State Department resumed sending non-lethal aid to Syrian rebels recently and the delivery included 43 Toyota trucks.
Now ISIS is using the trucks.
