Because the "rebels" are provably terrorists, and many are members of designated terrorist groups (al-Qaeda, al-Nusra Front, al-Furqan Brigades), the support that our government has provided is a criminal act punishable by life in prison according to US law (18 USC § 2339).
"Whoever knowingly provides material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization, or attempts or conspires to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both, and, if the death of any person results, shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life."
Obama, Kerry, McCain, and Graham may have committed criminal violations of US law by supporting the Syrian rebels. Spread the word.
