Correction: An earlier version of this article misstated the name of Michael W. Hanna’s foundation. It is the Century Foundation. An earlier version also incorrectly included Syria among nations racing to arm rival factions of the rebel fighters battling Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. It is Saudi Arabia, along with Qatar and Turkey, that has armed rebels. This version has been updated.
