Someone in Moscow accidentally left a MANPAD on a table

So a day after Barack Obama's Hamlet-on-the-Hudson reflections on US foreign policy, and 3 years after discussions about giving Syrian rebels anti-aircraft weapons that would help deter the Assad machine indsiscriminate bombings, it somehow only took the Ukrainian rebels a couple of weeks to get their hands on a portable anti-aircraft weapon and use it to shoot down a Ukrainian helicopter.

If the White House is blocking anti-aircraft weapons for the Syrian rebels because of where they might end up, shouldn't it be concerned where the Ukrainian rebels anti-aircraft weapons might end up?
