The U.S. State Department is considering whether to delist the group, a decision expected later this year.

    In all fairness it WAS removed in 2012 from the list (quite controversial from my understanding) Either way it was a recognized group back when Bush is accused of aiding them.

    Well, if you can find a quote by all of the "Obama haters" supporting Bush doing the same thing, you'd have something. If not, you're generalizing based upon the word beside "Lean:" on the left hand side of everyone's post. I, for one, didn't support Bush doing that. Yet, my user name is MarineTpartier. So, I guess that predestines me to be a ultra right wing conservative who screams Murica and loves him some Dubya huh?

    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.

    Has the man lost his mind? Un-effin-believable!

    Didn't arming random rebels in Afghanistan eventually lead to a 9/11 in our country? Is he so blind to the long-term effects of this kind of policy? The weapons they use in Syria today may be the weapons they use in Washington or Los Angeles tomorrow. Geeeeeez!!

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Well it was used as an example of Bush having done the same thing as Obama has been doing. At any rate, classify groups according to your purpose, kind of like fixing intelligence around your policy.

    While the Obama administration is turning U.S. military installations into gun free zones and ordering Marines at 8th & I Barracks to remove the bolts from their rifles, Obama is turning the Middle East into a open carry zone claiming it will bring peace to the Middle East.

    The current administration doesn't know if it's coming or going.

    No, arming rebels had zero to do with 9/11. Arming the Syrian rebels is in our interest.
