Yes, the US government is a danger to the Syrian masses.

Wall Street Journal, October 17, 2012

U.S. officials say they are most worried about Russian-designed Manpads 
provided to Libya making their way to Syria. The U.S. intensified 
efforts to track and collect man-portable missiles after the 2011 fall 
of the country’s longtime strongman leader, Moammar Gadhafi.

To keep control of the flow of weapons to the Syrian rebels, TURKEY, 
SAUDI ARABIA and QATAR formed a joint operations room early this year in 
a covert project U.S. officials watched from afar.

The U.S. has limited its support of the rebels to communications 
equipment, logistics and intelligence. But U.S. officials have 
coordinated with the trio of countries sending arms and munitions to the 
rebels. The Pentagon and CIA ramped up their presence on Turkey’s 
southern border as the weapons began to flow to the rebels in two to 
three shipments every week.

In July, the U.S. effectively HALTED the delivery of at least 18 Manpads 
sourced from Libya, even as the rebels pleaded for more effective 
antiaircraft missiles to counter regime airstrikes in Aleppo, people 
familiar with that delivery said.
