US Ambassador to Syria Robert Ford yesterday sneaked into northern Syria to meet with Syrian opposition leaders. A US official confirmed the visit and said that the meeting took place along the Turkey-Syria border and that the Ambassador did not go deep into Syria.
As the official said: (The meeting) was literally just across the border. However, he refused to provide additional details for security reasons. Obviously, this is a dangerous area so we dont want to get into the movement of diplomatic personnel, he said.
A Syrian activist reportedly said Ford met with a rebel leader from Aleppo who thanked him for the delivery of some food aid being provided by the US.
Ford was recalled from Syria in late 2011 following the outbreak of violence to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Since then, he has become the Obama administrations point man on Syria and the Syrian opposition.
On Wednesday, State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said Fords meetings aim to maintain relations with the Syrian opposition and to talk with them not only about our increasing support and their needs, but also about the opportunities for a political transition.
Kerry today formally announced an additional $100 million (77million) in humanitarian aid for Syrian refugees.
This dovetails perfectly with Obama/Soetoro`s muslim caliphate foreign policy story :
"What difference does it make?"
Why of course ~ that's who he would be
What foreign policy objective was the Ambassador working on? What was being done that was in the National Interests of the United States?
Those a**holes are dead-set on emplacing al-Qaida and the MB in power wherever they can.
Did he miss what happened in Tripoli and how the rescuers were told to ‘stand down’?
Must be fun working in an embassy know that if there’s trouble, Barry will be busy campaigning or working on his golf swing.
this is a dangerous area so we dont want to get into the movement of diplomatic personnel, he said.
i guess they only worry about the security of diplomats who are out doing obamas dirty work. Obama gives aide to Syrian brotherhood members but did not do a thing for the 4 dead Americans in Benghazi. I can’t say more or I’ll have to go to confession!
Now I know why the military took those 17 officers out of the LCF’s. These heroes were going to nuke the place from orbit and someone found out.
This whole stupid report had the simple political goal of claiming that the aid is FOOD.
And it's a lie.
And it's the only thing we ever get from Morocco Bomber --lies.
US aid to the rebels was MANPADS, and one day they will shock us the depths of their ingratitude, by shooting down a US airliner.
Remember and watch.
That has sunk in to CIA employees and others who may be sent into harm's way on behalf of Obama. Other Governments may have also taken note that personnel they might lend to assist Obama might be in great peril in difficulties arise. Hillary unknowingly articulated a cold blooded Obama principle: Ok they died. They were expendable!
“working in an embassy knowing”
I don’t to EVER hear another Democrat say a word about the GOP “nation-building” or “interfering in another nation’s business”.
But, MUCH worse, Obama is HELPING Islamist rebels overthrow standing governments. Egypt, Libya and Syria are long-standing countries. Obama is willing to overthrow them at will and use Islamist extemists to do it.
How I*N*C*R*E*D*I*B*L*Y stupid.
Obama end game?
Create a muslim caliphate.
Arm it to the teeth.
The caliphate then turns all those weapons on Israel.
Obama pulls the rug out on Israel and turns his back on them.
Final solution achieved.
I think you’re right. The only thing stopping it is Mohammedan infighting.
As far-getched as that would seem, it is hard to argue against. All signs point to it.
I bet he was packin heat!
Or hoping his life was worth 100mil!
Fear not, it will be reported as a "center fuel tank" explosion... not terrorism...
Perhaps we should ask Obama about all those damn Muslims who are part of the American experience/fabric/beginning?
Tell us all about Muslim war heroes who served in the US military Obama? Hell, I find ZERO.
Tell, us all about those Muslim signers of the Declaration of Independence?
Show us these great Muslim Americans president JACKASS.
Well, why not? They’re Al Qaeda.
Those are, of course, the primary questions if we were operating a constitutionally directed government. But we're not, so what are the real motives?
The Central Bank of Syria and opening up the Syrian Central Bank to buying US Treasury debt, becoming a member of BIS, opening up to control by IMF, etc., is the top priority.
Syria’s remaining national gold reserves would be turned over to the international banking system.
Puppets from international banking would be installed as the Prime Minister and Central Bank head.
The bank would be set up probably before the revolution even ends, and Western companies would come piling in to the new “open” economy.
This is what happened in Libya; there’s no reason to think that Syria would be any different.
US Ambassador to Syria Robert Ford... the meeting took place along the Turkey-Syria border... "(The meeting) was literally just across the border." ... met with a rebel leader from Aleppo who thanked him for the delivery of some food aid being provided by the US. Ford was recalled from Syria in late 2011 ... aim to maintain relations with the Syrian opposition and "to talk with them not only about our increasing support and their needs, but also about the opportunities for a political transition."
