Jordanian 'sources' to the Guardian: "Jordan's Mukhabarat used to be afraid of Assad ... but now they feel emboldened!"

"... Jordanian sources describe a "double discourse" – an official one that reiterates the formal position alongside clandestine training and Saudi-financed arms supplies delivered with the help of the CIA. Jordan's powerful Mukhabarat secret service enjoys a close relationship with its western partners, including MI6."The Jordanians are happy to channel support but they say 'don't put us in the front line'," said a Syrian opposition figure. "They used to be afraid that Assad's intelligence system could hit back and hurt Jordan but now he is weak they feel emboldened to be more active."
