Skip to comments.Syrian opposition group that killed child 'was in US-vetted alliance'

A Syrian opposition group whose members beheaded a child captive near Aleppo on Tuesday had been part of a US-vetted alliance and been supplied with anti-tank missiles until a year ago.
Images of the killing are widely seen as among the most shocking of the war and continued to receive condemnation, with Amnesty International describing the killing as having truly plumbed the depths of depravity. A US State Department spokesman described reports of the killing as appalling and said proof that the killers were linked to the group, known as Nour al-din al-Zenki, would lead to any further backing being stopped.
Nour al-din al-Zenki had previously been accused of committing atrocities in its stronghold of northern Aleppo. Such claims led to the US cutting ties with the group in early 2015.

Theory: al-Zenki beheading was an isolated incident. Rouge member of the group.
Meet Omar Salkhu (left) and Mohammad Mayuf (right). They are the two
#Aleppo commanders of al-Zenki.
Here we see Omar Salkhu taunting the young kid that they will not shoot him in the head, but butcher him.
Footage at link above and image above, shows them on the same red pickup that he is beheaded on, along with the butcher himself.
Commander of the group made the threats of beheading, kid then got beheaded. None of them look to have been detained because...
Very influential group & was/is US supported. 6/6pic.twitter.com/cjQjfStk9k
The media refuses tell the truth about it.
I am sure that is all okay with the Sultan in Washington. What the hell!? the kid was an apostate! What else are they supposed to do with him?
and Your New Neighbors!
Imagine how much the unvetted ones will add!
Gee, Thanks Hussein! /s
“This is what the Obama administration supports.”
No sh!t, Sherlock.
They also support ther murdering of: unborn babies, police officers, US veterans, Christians, white people, Trump supporters, and anybody else that doesn’t agree with their agenda.
I just read a few minutes of info about those savages beheading children. This is not the first time this has happened. This kid may have been a combatant.
There are lots of other murders of kids though that in no way could they be considered combatants.
I just read about the muslims that cut off a girls head and then forced the mother to wash her hands in her daughter’s blood. There’s pictures of the mother cradle her daughter’s body.
Obama wants to do that to our families and our children.
Anyone who supports Obama is a traitor and my enemy, family members included.
I'm wondering as the Syrian Army and Russia take back enemy-held territories if this is what the Obama administration is bringing to the US.
McCain. What a horrible, Treasonous slug.
Watch his constituent re-elect him.
We're being invaded folks...
London papers are the only even handed source left for Americans. The American press has already committed suicide. Discredited entirely, the AP and the news designing corporates are now in drag. Wearing the name of news-reporting-media they are a mockery even unto their own.
Pathetic. Talk about junior varsity, the American Press is in total regression, dressing paper dolls to peer applause.
Thanks John McCain :(
Even so, the United States has no business supporting these monsters that Obama, Hiltery, McCain, and their cronies have created. Apparently, the "rebels" and ISIS/ISIL are one in the same.
More treasonous policy from the Obama administration!
