BEIRUT (AP) - Fighters from a shadowy militant group with suspected links to al-Qaida joined Syrian rebels in seizing a government missile defense base in northern Syria on Friday, according to activists and amateur video.

I don’t think there’s anything “shadowy” about it. All of these Arab Spring revolutions are controlled by terrorists. The Syrian government is evil, but the terrorists are even worse.
I’ve been kind of surprised that Obama and Hillary haven’t gone in to help them, the way they have everywhere else.
Ah, the “Peace Dividend” from Obama and Hillary’s “Smart Power”.
It's Springtime for Momo ...
Well Joe, I guess the Ayatollahs have their missile delivery systems now.
I heard yesterday that we DO have boots on the ground at the Syrian border to provide support for the “rebels.” Our State Dept. is overtly supporting Al Quaida; WTH!
Who wants to bet Obama, Biden and Hillary don’t know about this yet? And when they do find out, they’ll tell us it was caused by a film that puts down the nice radical Muslims....
Amb Stevens’ real job in Libya was first arming the rebels, and later funneling Libyan arms to Syrian rebles, who are chocked full of AQ and MB.
Seizing a missile base is no small matter.
This all ultimately is being timed to really boil over just in time to distract from the election.
Think back to ‘79, with the Ayatullah taking over in Tehran. Bad, huh?
Now imagine that every nut there sending Iran to hell was armed with AMERICAN BACKING, and that American “advisers” were there, making sure he was properly equipmped to throw out the Shah —that is not quite what we have here.
BUT IT IS CLOSE.
This isn’t so simple —it will involve Turkey, and then Russia.
Not sure if this is minor or not.
Libya: British guns unaccounted for after Benghazi consulate attack
British guns that were being stored in the ransacked US consulate in Benghazi are unaccounted for and feared to have fallen into the hands of extremists.
Moreover, these "Fighters from a shadowy militant group with suspected links to al-Qaida" tend to go by a NAME.
Jabhat al-Nusra or Al-Nusra Front, for one?
Syria Activists: Jihadists Seize Missile Base
This is ridiculous and it should be an incredibly damning statement. Its shocking to me that this has not been picked up.
Thank you. Copying marstegreg’s post:
A survey of weapon depots in Libya shows that up to 20,000 shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles are now missing, partly because President Barack Obama has refused to send troops to guard the weapons depots, according to a left-of-center advocate.
According to crazy uncle joe, they have.
Also don’t forget the WMDS that Panetta/Obama have lost track of in Syria.
I see a bad moon rising.
I smell a crescent moon rising. :(
Panetta: Weve Lost Track of Syrian Chemical Weapons
The U.S. has lost track of some of Syrias chemical weapons, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Friday, and does not know if any potentially lethal chemicals have fallen into the hands of Syrian rebels or Iranian forces inside the country.
There has been intelligence that there have been some moves that have taken place. Where exactly thats taken place, we dont know. Panetta said, in a Pentagon press briefing.
Yep...that is what I mean....lol.
