Wow, first Reuters and now even the New York Times dares to question the Obama Admin’s “rebels-are-the-good-guys” narrative.
Looks like Obama and Kerry both stepped in a big steaming pile of dogcrap this time!
Speaking of Reuters...
Secretary of State John Kerry’s claim that moderate groups are growing in influence among the opposition contradicts the findings of intelligence sources and experts:
At congressional hearings this week, while making the case for President Barack Obama’s plan for limited military action in Syria, Kerry asserted that the armed opposition to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad “has increasingly become more defined by its moderation, more defined by the breadth of its membership, and more defined by its adherence to some, you know, democratic process and to an all-inclusive, minority-protecting constitution.
“And the opposition is getting stronger by the day,” Kerry told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday.
U.S. and allied intelligence sources and private experts on the Syrian conflict suggest that assessment is optimistic.
While the radical Islamists among the rebels may not be numerically superior to more moderate fighters, they say, Islamist groups like the al Qaeda-aligned Nusra Front are better organized, armed and trained.
