EXCLUSIVE: Syrians warn U.S. that Al Qaeda has hijacked revolution
Washington Times ^ | Aug 30, 2013 | Tiffany Madison

Posted on 09/01/2013 2:07:08 PM PDT by Innovative

Syrians inside the country say the revolution began with peaceful protests from the poor seeking reforms. The movement now brims with violent terrorist operatives aligned with Al Qaeda and Al-Nasra, including extremist fighters from Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq. The mainstream media portrays a false picture of the now-compromised Free Syrian Army.

The extremist elements within are not just minority-affiliates. They win the battles, they have the ammunition and the food. They have slowly filled the power vaccuum and they do not fight for a freed Syria, but to establish an ultra-fundamentalist state.

American taxpayers have fueled the Syrian Civil War by providing $117 million in communications and medical equipment to the opposition. We can be assured we’ve contributed more in other ways not on the books.

For Darwish, his colleague and many Americans paying attention to the conflict, the truth of Syria’s hijacked revolution is no secret. These groups openly declare their terrorist affiliations with Al Qaeda and Al-Nasra online; they are terrorist parasites that found a host in the Syrian rebellion. The mainstream media has a responsibility, however, to report this truth more widely and accurately and have failed.

Christians, non-conforming Muslims, or even pro-Assad villages have been slaughtered.

That’s okay. When Al Qaeda crosses another Obama red-line, we’ll bomb them too. That way Obama can say we’re not playing favorites.

Actually, it was the Muslim Brotherhood which hijacked the Democrat Party.

Of course, they have. Just like in Egypt when many of us warned about
the MB taking power. And we were right!

Same thing here.

Let Allah sort it out!

Syrians warn U.S. that Al Qaeda has hijacked revolution

Yesterday on Fox there was some general saying that the extremist forces had moved to the northern part of the country and the people fighting Assad were all just civilian freedom fighters, according to his inside sources.

Well then, it is past time for Obama to do his usual, interfere in a sovereign country and put the terrorists in to govern.

Good job, Barry.

" President Obama is considering the appointment of Michael Stephens, brother of Christopher Stephens, to the consulate to be established in Homs, Syria following the removal of Assad, sources say."

So he can abandon Michael Stephens when Stephens/embassy/consulate need help. Would Michael Stephens accept such a post considering what happened to his brother; I don't know anything at all about him.

If his name is so obvious why can’t I find out what it is
etc. etc. etc.

You may have hit the nail on the head!

I read somewhere that the US has been sending arms to the “rebels” (euphemism for Al Qaeda) in Syria.

Thanks Innovative.

But why? Assad's a reformer who protects everyone. That was *never* a peaceful protest, it was *al Qaeda from day one!!!* /s
