Al Qaeda Opens School in Syria

By: Wednesday January 1, 2014 10:32 am

So it seems Al Qaeda has quite a foothold in Syria, recently empowered by capturing US weapons that were foolishly dumped into the country by the masters of universe who run US foreign policy. Let’s just be thankful that the Obama Administration gave up on bombing Al Qaeda’s opponents in Syria – the Assad government. Otherwise Al Qaeda might be running a great many schools instead of one.

Perhaps the biggest state sponsor of Islamic terrorism in the world, Saudi Arabai is very upset they can no longer pull the strings in Washington. They had a wonderful relationship with the Bush Administration whereby Prince Bandar said something in private and President George W. Bush repeated it in public. According to the New York Post the Bush Administration even covered up the Saudi government’s complicity in the attacks of 9/11.

US Drone Strike In Pakistan Blows Up Afghanistan Peace Talks

By: Tuesday November 5, 2013 10:30 am

No one seems to have a valid explanation as to why the US and NATO are killing people in Afghanistan currently. The only explanation given for anything related to US military action in Afghanistan is the alleged need to keep the killing machine going for fear that Al Qaeda will retake the country and use it as a base, maybe.

Al Qaeda Plot Leaks: McClatchy’s Response to New York Times Alleging Journalism Impacted US Intelligence

By: Tuesday October 1, 2013 2:23 pm

The notion that news reports—journalism—effectively alerted al Qaeda leaders that their communications were being monitored by US intelligence was legitimized by the New York Times on Monday, when it published statements purely from anonymous US officials containing such allegations. The Times implicated McClatchy Newspapers as being responsible and now the media organization has responded with a news report of its own.

‘Moderate’ Syrian Rebels Join With Al-Qaeda Faction

By: Wednesday September 25, 2013 9:45 am

In a joint statement, 13 rebel groups including a powerful al-Qaida-linked faction but also more mainstream forces slammed the Turkey-based Syrian National Coalition, saying it no longer represents their interests. The signatories called on all military and civilian forces “to unite under a clear Islamic framework based on Shariah law, which should be the sole source of legislation”— an apparent reference to the al-Qaida faction’s aspirations to create an Islamic state in Syria.

Obama Bypasses Terrorism Rule to Give Weapons to Syrian Rebels

By: Tuesday September 17, 2013 9:15 am

President Obama, in order to arm Al-Qaeda linked Syrian rebels, has waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups. Not surprisingly, federal law currently bans giving weapons to terrorists. Though it seems Obama does have the authority to bypass the restriction and he is choosing to do so by arming the Syrian rebels who have links to Al Qaeda, a group still listed as supporting terrorism.

Report: Nearly Half of Syrian Rebel Fighters Are Jihadists or Hardline Islamists

By: Monday September 16, 2013 9:35 am

As a peace deal is in the works it seems the earlier case for a dominant “moderate” rebel force in Syria keeps dissolving in the light of evidence. This should not be that surprising given that the leading voice for a dominant moderate rebel force talking point was proven to be a fraud.
