FSA is also Al Qaeda
The US wanted a pro-US and pro-Israeli government in Damascus, a government that will complete the ‘take-over’ of Palestine. A government that will sign the ‘Treaty of shame and surrender’ .Something President Assad and his government will never do!!!! In 2012, President Barack Obama authorized U.S. government agencies to support forced regime change in Syria. In July 2012, the Office of Foreign Assets Control authorized channeling financial support for the Free Syrian Army through the Syrian Support Group, a non-governmental organization based in Washington, D.C.. In April 2013, the Obama administration promised to double non-lethal aid to the rebels, from US$123 million to US$250 million, thus attaining the goal of US$1 billion in total international aid.
In June 2013, the White House confirmed that the U.S. has „stepped up” its assistance to Syrian rebels. While the State Department was in charge of providing non-lethal aid to the rebels, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was tasked with the supply and delivery of weaponry and other lethal equipment. By early September 2013, the Obama administration considered putting The Pentagon in charge of arming and training Syrian rebel forces because the CIA’s previous training program was too limited and too slow.
In October 2013, the CIA ramped up its clandestine effort to train opposition fighters in Syria amid concern that moderate, U.S.-backed militias are rapidly losing ground in the country’s civil war. The program is aimed at increasing the fighting power of units aligned with the Supreme Council of the Syrian Revolution, an umbrella organization led by a former Syrian general that is the main recipient of U.S. support.
Moderate cannibals or the moderate Al Qaeda
A testimony to the House Committee on Homeland Security, on al Qaeda in Syria and the threat it poses to the US. Al Qaeda affiliates and allied jihadist groups dominate the insurgency in the heart of the Middle East.
“The rebellion allied with Qaeda and like-minded extremists on the other…”.
“We should have no illusions about the nature of the Syrian war. What we are witnessing right now is a conflict that will have ramifications for our security in the West. The fighting in Syria and the terrorist campaign in Iraq are deeply linked, feeding off of one another in a way that increases the violence in both countries and potentially throughout the region…”
“These same al Qaeda-affiliated forces have fought alongside Free Syrian Army brigades. There is no clear geographic dividing line between the most extreme fighters and other rebels. For example, al Qaeda’s affiliates played a key role in the fighting in Latakia…, in early August. And within the past week we saw al Qaeda-affiliated fighters lead an attack in Malula, a Christian village not far from Damascus. These are just two examples chosen from many…”
“Al Qaeda has made the fight for Syria a strategic priority. Ayman al Zawahiri, al Qaeda’s emir, has repeatedly called on jihadists to concentrate their efforts on the fight against Assad…But al Qaeda desires much more than Assad’s defeat. Al Qaeda wants to control territory and rule over others. This is consistent with al Qaeda’s desire to establish an Islamic Emirate in the heart of the Levant. In his book, Knights Under the Prophet’s Banner, Zawahiri discussed at length the importance of creating such a state. Al Qaeda and associated groups have consistently pursued this goal in jihadist hotspots around the globe and this is especially true in Syria today…
Two known al Qaeda affiliates operate inside Syria: Jabhat al Nusrah [Al Nusrah Front] and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham (or Levant). The leaders of both groups have sworn an oath of loyalty (bayat) to Ayman al Zawahiri and al Qaeda’s senior leadership. The heads of these two affiliates openly bickered over the chain-of-command in early April 2013. This forced Zawahiri to intervene, but the head of the ISIS initially rejected Zawahiri’s decision to have the two remain independently-operated franchises. It appears that some sort of compromise has been brokered, however, as the two al Qaeda affiliates fight alongside one another against their common enemies,Assad’s forces and the Kurdish forces in the north.
Al Qaeda is not just a terrorist organization. Al Qaeda’s leaders are political revolutionaries seeking to acquire power for themselves and their ideology in several countries. They have a plan for Syria. Al Qaeda’s affiliates inside Syria are not just fighting Assad’s forces, or committing various other acts of terror. They are seeking to inculcate their ideology within the Syrian population. Many Syrians have no love for al Qaeda’s ideology, or its harsh brand of sharia law. But al Qaeda knows this and has adjusted its tactics accordingly. Jabhat al Nusrah and the ISIS are providing local governance in the areas they control, and are seeking to win hearts and minds by making various social services available to the population. This is a continuation of a trend that we’ve seen elsewhere, beginning in Yemen, where al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula launched Ansar al Sharia as its political faceAl Qaeda’s affiliates in Syria have copied this strategy in Syria, and are increasing their popular support in some areas (especially in the north and east) in this manner. This model is being implemented in Raqqah, Aleppo, Deir al Zor.
Syria has become the central front in the global jihad. Other al Qaeda-linked groups have joined the fight in Syria, thereby strengthening al Qaeda’s hand. Groups including the Pakistani Taliban (Tekrik-e Taliban) and the Muhajireen (Migrants) Brigade are fighting in Syria. The first group sent fighters and trainers from South Asia to Syria, while the second is comprised of Chechens and other foreign fighters. Indeed, several thousand foreign fighters from around the globe have joined the fight. Countries throughout North Africa and the Middle East have supplied a large number of jihadist recruits. In addition, a significant number of Europeans have traveled to Syria for jihad…”
“Some of the more powerful Syrian rebel groups are closely allied with al Qaeda’s affiliates.
Ahrar al Sham and its coalition of like-minded groups, the Syrian Islamic Front (SIF), fight alongside al Qaeda’s fighters regularly. Brigades belonging to another Islamist coalition, the Syrian Islamic Liberation Front (SILF), have coordinated their operations with al Qaeda’s affiliates and Ahrar al Sham in key battles as well. For example, fighters from Nusrah, the SIF, and the SILF overran the Taftanaz Airbase in January. The collective strength of these groups is easily in the tens of thousands of fighters nationwide…
Al Qaeda’s affiliates are seeking possession of chemical and biological weapons in Syria. On May 30, the Turkish press reported that an al Nusrah Front cell had been arrested and was found to be in possession of about two kilos of sarin gas. The following day, June 1, Iraqi officials announced that they had broken up an al Qaeda cell that was seeking to launch sarin nerve gas attacks in Iraq, Europe and possibly North America. “The United States Congress has privately voted to funnel arms, anti-tank rockets, as well as financial backing to apparent “moderate” rebels fighting in Syria’s southern region.
It is suspected that the US Congress approved of the measure with some off-the-books ‘black budget’ during the passing of the defense appropriations bill back in December.
The US government previously admitted publicly in September that the CIA has been funneling cash and arms to various rebels in Syria.
If you remember, Yasin al-Qadi the Saudi financier, who has been linked to 9/11, the Mumbai attacks, the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings, as well as allegedly funneling millions in clandestine cash to Al Qaeda, was recently in the news for travelling to and from Turkey in the company of Recep Erdogan’s protective detail. Even though at the time Al-Qadi was listed as being banned from entering the country. Erdogan’s son, Bilal Erdogan was also seen with the Al Qaeda ‘money-man’ in a hotel in Istanbul.
Al-Qadi is also said to be a member of the Muslim Brotherhood with ties to Chicago, Obama and Dick Cheney.
An investigative agency, Operation Green Quest, was formed in October 2001, just following 9/11 and had been tracking Al-Qadi, as he was linked to a company called Ptech that provided software used by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Operation Green Quest was promptly disbanded in 2003 after a gigantic raid on 19 interrelated business under the multi-layered ‘umbrella corporation’ known as the SAAR Foundation a Saudi business venture with alleged ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
In mid January, it was reported that Turkish police seized a truck on its way to Syria with a weapons cache headed to the opposition rebels. The truck driver claimed he was transporting aid for the Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH), an organization that has in the past had correspondence with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Turkey has become a bastion of terror related activities, just as Pakistan has been, with its variant form of the Taliban and previous support of intelligence asset Osama Bin Laden.
During the height of the false chemical weapons allegations against Syria, it was revealed that retired Major General Paul Vallely as well as Arizona Senator John McCain had on two separate occasions met with the same Free Syrian Army that has been heavily linked to Al Qaeda. As tension in the region boiled over, both men immediately called for U.S. intervention to ship arms to Syria for the FSA terror faction.
Let us not forget also about the terror linked stronghold that had been found with bags of chemicals from Saudi Arabia.
The Turkish press has stated some 47 tons of arms have made its way into Syria from Turkey in 2013.
Will the morally bankrupt leaders gaming the planet with terror, ever be held accountable for their actions?
Congressional lawmakers have quietly authorized sending small arms, an assorted variety of rockets, and financial backing to so-called “moderate” rebels fighting in Syria’s civil war, according to a new report.
American and European security officials told Reuters that the US will provide anti-tank rockets, but nothing as deadly as shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles (known as MANPADs), which can be used to bring down military or civilian aircraft.
Legislators voted in closed-door meetings to fund the opposition forces through September 30, the end of the US government’s fiscal year. The decision is an about-face from congressional debates last year, in which the same committees were reluctant to supply arms over concerns that American weapons would wind up in the hands of radical Islamists fighting in the region, the Al-Qaeda-backed Al-Nusra being the most well known.
Now, though, those concerns appear to have lessened. Exactly when Congress approved the funding is not known, yet the sources speculated that it was signed in a classified section of a defense appropriations bill that was approved in December.
“The Syrian war is a stalemate,” said Bruce Riedel, a former CIA analyst and current foreign policy advisor to US President Obama with the Brookings Institution. “The rebels lack the organization and weapons to defeat Assad; the regime lacks to loyal manpower to suppress the rebellion. Both sides’ external allies…are ready to supply enough money and arms to fuel the stalemate for the foreseeable future.”
Now that the whole world is aware that the US government is sending arms and ammunitions to the Syrian rebels, the same US that armed the terrorist Israeli regime to kill Palestinians. The F-16s you always hear are US-made planes given(not buy) to Israel to kill Palestinians. The question is why is the US government arming the Syrian rebels? Please don’t tell me its because of freedom and democracy when everyone knows that the US government do not care about freedom and democracy. Those are just words they used to deceive the gullible and the unenlightened. From reliable statistics all US close allies in the Middle East are despotic, undemocratic and dictatorial. All of them! Is it Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, UAE, Jordan, etc. and worst of all Palestine which is under Zionist occupation. As for Human Rights, no nation on earth takes the lives of human violently like the United States of America. Remember Vietnam where the US arrogant power murdered more than 4 million Vietnamese. After using fake and fabricated Intel, the US murdered more than one million Iraqis.In the notorious Abu Ghuraib prison, CIA the master of torture and extreme inhumanity proved to the World how their associates end after they do the dirty jobs in foreign interventions . Why is the US government arming the Syrian rebels? So they have an excuse to attack Syria using either the army (we saw that the highest officers refused to do that ) or…a new proxy force as we see now days!
