Jabhat al-Nusra is a group every American should be aware of. Abu al-Ezz, a commander of the group, blatantly and openly discussed how his group is part of al-Qaeda in a recent interview with the Center for Research on Globalization.
Why is this important? Because Jabhat al-Nusra is the ‘rebel’ group fully armed, funded and backed by the Obama Administration. Not directly, the admin will say, but what they won’t say is that the anti-Assad rebels the U.S. is behind have fully merged with Jabhat al-Nusra. And it’s the terrorist tied group Russian President Putin is at war with in Syria (along with the ‘rebels’ who just merged with them).
The Wall Street Journal published a story today that paints a dark picture of how Russia and the U.S. are on the verge of cutting all agreements to help fight terrorists in Syria. This because Russia continues to bomb terrorists groups that the U.S. is supporting through various backchannels.
In the story WSJ attempts to throw water on the al-Qaeda ties by saying it’s the group with “links to al Qaeda that renamed itself in July and said it had cut ties with the extremist movement.” WSJ is attempting to provide cover for the Obama administration by implying the terrorist links no longer exist. Problem is, the Abu al-Ezz interview in which he claims they are a part of al-Qaeda was published on September 26th, just three days ago.
Additionally, this story gets much worse when we fully embrace what the WSJ story says. In the story the following can be found.
In addition to the CIA and its partners providing weapons, the U.S. is considering giving a green light to its regional allies, including Turkey and Saudi Arabia, to provide more-powerful weapons systems to the rebels.
Some U.S. officials believe that it already may be too late to have any impact on the battlefield, and that the administration should consider taking direct U.S. military action against the Assad regime to halt the campaign.
Think about that for a moment. Congress is arguing over finding funds to clean up lead pipes in Michigan and Obama admin is about to bankroll Saudi Arabia and Turkey for war with Russia and Syria. A war in which U.S. officials are suggesting we take part in.
Pay attention readers. A very ugly situation is brewing.
