Reports and pictures coming out of Iraq this week show ISIS jihadis taking U.S. supplied weapons from Iraqi Security Forces. Was that their aim all along?

A screenshot posted by Aaron Zelin would suggest so.

The account is now suspended, but if the screenshot is genuine, in a tweet dated March 20, 2014 this Al Janabi character was clearly taunting the U.S. with a plan to take the weapons.

Or they were monitoring but no one decided to act?
