Ward slipped into rebel territory in Syria to meet the fighters that the U.S. supports. Ward spoke with a Free Syrian Army general who discussed how dire the situation is for his opposition rebels without weapons and resources. The Free Syrian Army leader took Ward to a nearly empty warehouse where its ammunition is stored.

 

In Damascus, Syrian government representatives took Palmer inside a prison where she was shown three people the regime alleges are religious extremists fighting with the opposition.
