Posted on 05/09/2013 6:21:23 PM PDT by Pan_Yan
About six months ago, U.S. intelligence officers in Jordan told Syrian rebel commanders that the opposition should fight radical rebel group Jabhat al Nusra before fighting Syria's army, a commander present at the meeting told Phil Sands of The National.
"We'd prefer you fight al Nusra now, and then fight Assad's army," The Syrian commander said he was told. "You should kill these Nusra people. We'll do it if you don't."
America has not acknowledged such an action or commented on the report, but the notion is plausible.
The U.S. has officially provided non-lethal aid and humanitarian assistance to rebels, while expressing reluctance about greater military entanglements in the 26-month-old conflict.
Unofficially, the CIA is reportedly working with elite counterterrorism units in Iraq, funneling U.S.-made weapons to Syrian rebels from southern Turkey, feeding intelligence to moderate rebels, training rebels in Jordan to safeguard chemical weapons and potentially to establish a buffer zone along Syrias southern border, and scoping out targets for potential drone strikes inside Syria.

Anyone in the market for a bridge?
Yeah they might have told them to, but it’s glaringly obvious how little we did to assist them.
I call it propaganda warfare. White Hut muslim resident is so busy to defend his involvement of size of Al-Qaeda, it went all-Orwellian.
Anyone remember uprising against a secular dictatorship in a muzzie word which led to a non-jihadi regime?
It has never happened and won’t ever happen. 90% of ‘rebels’ are full-blown islamists, others are their useful idiots.
of size=on side
The Obama Administration has sold out America
and the American people to al Qaeda. 100%.
A muslim president tells Muslim rebels to kill Muslim Alawites.
Yep. That'll work.
Lemme get this right:
This Syrian source is a guy who gets big bucks from Americans.
And now Mr. Money Getter states to a US newspaper —right after a huge US scandal involving arms smuggling— that Spooky Money Giver is reallllly picky about him picking on those super bad AllahAkbar guys, right..?
Yeah, he’s SUPER picky about it..!
OMG HAHAHAHHAHAHAH, now that is funny, right there..!
(neck veins bulging, wheezing, doubled-over, holding gut)
Oh, wow, they really think we’re stupid, now don’t they?
Kill their own team? What?
This administration makes me want to puke with their lies.
Half of America listens to anything that “The One” puts out like it was the Gospel.
Half of America cannot see the forest for the trees.
I have gotten so that I cannot even speak to liberals hat I know, I get so damned mad I just want to puke.
OUTSTANDING posts BUMP! FUBO and Fislam
>>>Kill their own team? What?<<<
You don’t have to look for any sense in propaganda case.
These guys allegedly told to kill radicals = they are non-radicals.
It is how a ministry of truth delivers ideas to lo-info voters via Pravda-media.
What a bunch of dumbasses the White House is. The Rebels are the Jihadists!
Thanks Pan_Yan. Zero, in his never-ending quest to undermine US interests and US allies, failed to support the armed uprising, a failure not shared by the jihadist OPEC powers.
In other news, Obama has gotten together with Superman and the Justice League of America to urge them to greater efforts in the war against al Qaeda.
Who is "their" team? I'm fairly certain that Obama and his handlers are not working in America's best interest but I'm not as convinced as some people here that they are actively rooting for Al Qaeda. However they definitely have a serious case of Muslim man-love.
The State Department is full of liberal wishful thinkers who know they are the smartest people in the world and still believe that Islam is compatible with democracy. In other words they think they are the both umpire and coach when they don't even know the rules or what game is being played. Our foreign policy for the last five years has been schizophrenic to say the least.
I agree with the author that this may be plausible. It certainly wouldn't be the first time we've seen them be contradictory. To put it bluntly they have no idea what they're doing and they aren't getting any better.
Zig! For great Justice!
so here i am wondering what the word combination should be for when you commit a genocide on yourself and am kinda stuck if i take the prefix com (together) and add “sidium” (killing) then I get comsidium but more in the english it would be comicide which is of course a killing that makes you laugh or maybe i could just go with congenicide because these fools killing each other is pretty much inherent?
Hmmm.... Isn’t there a way they can all lose?
“...but I’m not as convinced as some people here that they are actively rooting for Al Qaeda.”
I think it was in Libya where the “Freedom Fighters” were fighting Khadafi, and one of their leaders had been supplied with American weapons, and had a sat phone to call in airstrikes by American/NATO planes. The leader had trained at Taliban camps in Afghanistan. “Never fought Americans - only training”.
They’ve been happily killing each other for a thousand years. The only difference is they now have modern weapons (which their primitive culture could have never developed) and that allows them to be a threat to not only themselves but the rest of us. That means there is an element of cultural genocide / murder / suicide. Yer gonna need a bigger dictionary.
Oh, we're stupid with out a doubt. That's "we" as in the collective represented by the morons in charge.
...If the islamists make Obama THEIR emir, sure.
What was it Ann Coulter said after 9-11? Kill them all and convert their women and children to Christianity? Probably the only definitive option.
like maybe i should shift gears and dream about the golden years?
Here’s a link to an article about him - not the one I recall but it has info. And I was wrong. He DID admit to fighting against the Americans in Afghanistan, and was also captured by us. “But I never went to Guantanamo.”
Sadly, doing a google search on “arming former taliban in libya” first brings up about 40 results for “Syria” instead.
But, “what does it matter now”?
Me- I think the Benghazi coverup is a coverup for how we were arming the rebels and it blew up in our face.
That works. I only can hope they succeed entirely.
Seems to me thqt our policy in the Middle East has been anything but schizophrenic. In every single conflict, the Obama administration has supported the element favored by the Muslim Brotherhood.
Save for Iran, of course, where they sided with the Islamist mullahcracy rather than the people.
Further, the administration has been consistent in working against Israel's interests at every opportunity.
That's not schizophrenic; that's single-minded.
