    Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, which was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., in 2001. Assad's regime is backed by Iran and Hezbollah.

    Can we say "Obama pals around with terrorists yet?"

    I remember all the sneers whenever Ayers was brought up. Now Obama is arming Al Qaeda. Obama who is spying on you and using his IRS like the Gestapo.

    The MEK was classified as a terrorist group at the time of Bush aiding them. There are several sources, including the Washington post, that chronicled the aiding of them.

    Yup, that is a stupid Obama move. however, just like with the NSA spying it will be fine for him because the republicans want it and will not fight him on it. They may bitch some but congress will allow it so it becomes bipartisn.

    So you are saying that the MEK isn't a terrorist organization, when it has been listed as such for the past 15 years?

    MEK is an insurgent organization, not a terrorist organization.

    From the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) Website.


    The People's Mujahedeen of Iran, more commonly known as the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq or MEK, is listed as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the United States for its killing of U.S. personnel in Iran during the 1970s and its links to Saddam Hussein in the 1980s and 1990s. The U.S. State Department is considering whether to delist the group, a decision expected later this year.
