- Anybody who has studied the history of Al Qaeda knows: it is really the CIA!
- Obama Is Now Arming Al Qaeda Against Assad !
President Obama is coming under well-deserved attack for his decision last week to begin officially arming the Syrian rebels. An unnamed U.S. intelligence official, interviewed by Bill Gertz of the Washington Free Beacon, made the point succinctly: “We’ve come full circle [sic] from going after al Qaeda to indirectly backing al Qaeda.” The Al Nusra Front, the most effective of the rebel fighting forces in Syria, is now officially part of the al Qaeda network after merging with al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) earlier this year. As Gertz noted, the United States is now one of a dozen countries, including Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, and Britain, arming different rebel factions “The main backing for al-Nusra and other jihadist groups has come from covert arms shipments provided by Saudi Arabia and Turkey for the past several months, according to U.S. officials. The Obama administration sought unsuccessfully to have both states end their backing of al-Nusra, whose fighters are transported in pick-up trucks and who are known for wearing black clothes. Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization, known as MAT, has been the leading conduit for arms support to al-Nusra,” Gertz reported.
