    Pentagon leaders backed plan to arm Syrian rebels
    2/07/13 - The nation's top military commander and the secretary of Defense testified Thursday that they both supported arming Syria's rebels but were overruled by President Obama.

    The administration has opposed arming the rebels in Syria because it has said the weapons could fall into the wrong hands. It has repeatedly pushed for regional powers to take the lead in resolving the crisis. More than 60,000 people have died in the 23-month-old uprising, leading to calls from McCain and others that the Obama adminsitration has not done enough to remove the Syrian government from power.....snip~

    We already know what they will do with this Aid. Which we know they wont go out and feed their fellow Sunni brethren. The Rebels have been caught slaughtering Christians. Yet we know this as well. But for some reason.

    Obama says it is okay to assist terrorists.....of course thru his mouthpiece Kerry!

    Here was the piece I was looking for.....yet Team Obama is going to give them an extra 60 million in aid. Despite the Saudis giving them 300 million and despite Obama putting them on the terrorist watch list.


    Syrian rebels defy US and pledge allegiance to jihadi group.....
    Rebel groups across Syria are defying the United States by pledging their allegiance to a group that Washington will designate today a terrorist organization for its alleged links to al-Qaeda.

    A total of 29 opposition groups, including fighting "brigades" and civilian committees, have signed a petition calling for mass demonstrations in support of Jabhat al-Nusra, an Islamist group which the White House believes is an offshoot of al-Qaeda in Iraq.

    The petition is promoting the slogan "No to American intervention, for we are all Jabhat al-Nusra" and urges supporters to "raise the Jabhat al-Nusra flag" as a "thank you".

    "These are the men for the people of Syria, these are the heroes who belong to us in religion, in blood and in revolution," read a statement widely circulated on Syrian opposition Facebook pages.

    Although Jabhat al-Nusra remains separate from the Free Syrian Army, many FSA leaders now recognise its strength and order their forces to cooperate with it.....snip~

    Of course now they are one of the leading groups in the Opposition. Anyone else see this play?

    Closing up like a turtle is not a foreign policy and budget cuts are not a domestic policy either. Bohner can end the sequester with one vote but has refused to do so. The claim they don't like it but won't hold a vote on repealing it. There is no end to the hypocrisy.

    I'm not saying close up like a turtle but when Americans are suffering I'd rather the money go to Americans first and foreigners second.

    The spending is out of control. Obama and congress are all at fault for that.

    Nobody really knows what these 'rebels' have on their minds but odds are, judging from recent history in the area, it's going to be all Islam all the time. It's the Islamist spring, and democracies winter.

    Obama continues to support Islamism in the Middle East and, from what we have seen by his reaction to Benghazi, will condemn anyone who is critical of Islam. Almost all the leaders are falling recently and being replaced by Islamists.

    Well, we cannot change the fact that we put this group on the Terrorist list.....moreover how does Team Obama now explain away giving terrorists US Aid and Assistance? Meaning now that Kerry has just admitted to giving them support.


    But we do know......it's called the United States of Islam. Where their version of Democracy is a bit different than ours. But as long as they hold elections we all good, Right?

    Also Obama isn't just releasing immigrants he has released Taliban back to Afghanistan and now he is preparing to release more.

    Plus Qatar and the Saud are leading the way with the Money. So what need is there for us to put this money into Syrian Rebels hands? Especially when we know AQ, Nusra Al Islam, the MB, and other Islamist Radicals are all involved with the Rebels and in many cases. Leading the offensive against Assad.
    Okay I'm going to have to question this. CLERKS making $90K? I doubt very seriously that they have job openings for clerks at $90K. I'm not even sure that a clerk with 30 years of service, is making that.

    Yeah, I misspoke it was Assistant Administrator. But you can look up some of the jobs they have open. I heard Senator Coburn was looking them up this morning too. As he was going to send a letter off to the White House about them. Point being was Obama saying that such would affect the Military and National Security. But like I said any looking for jobs can check the web sites for themselves.

    If people want to come up with some of the Absurd Positions they do have open and post them up. I wouldn't Object.
