U.S.-funded weapons have begun flowing to Syrian rebels, a U.S. official tells CNN.

The official confirmed details first reported by the Washington Post.

"That is something we are not going to dispute but we are not going to publicly speak to it," the official said.

The weapons are not American-made but are funded and organized by the CIA, the source said. They started to reach rebels in the last two weeks, according to the source. This is in addition to non-lethal aid that the United States has been providing.
