    US confirms Syrian suicide bomber was American.....

    They are saying he is from Florida.....and that he was also part of al Nusra. Arabic origin. What say ye?


    WASHINGTON (AP) The State Department confirmed Friday that a U.S. citizen from Florida launched a suicide bombing against Syrian government troops earlier this week in what is believed to be the first time an American has been involved in such attacks since the start of the Syrian civil war.

    Opposition forces fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad had earlier claimed that Abu Hurayra al-Amriki was, in fact, an American fighter who carried out a May 25 truck bombing outside a restaurant in the government-held northwestern city of Idlib. Al-Amriki means "the American."

    State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters on Friday that he was an American. Psaki said it appeared to be the first time an American citizen was involved in a suicide bombing since the start of the three-year civil war in Syria that has killed at least 160,000.

    Kanjo said even a local commander with the Nusra Front was surprised about al-Amriki, quoting him as saying that people do all they can to try go to the U.S. to get an American passport, and this man came here and got rid of his.

    "From what I heard, I believe he was an American of Arab origin. People said that he spoke Arabic with a foreign accent, and he used to speak classical Arabic," Kanjo said.....snip~

    State Department says U.S. citizen was suicide bomber in Syria....

    The bomber, who called himself Abu Hurayra al-Amriki, carried out one of four suicide bombings on May 25 in Syria's Idlib province on behalf of Jabhat al-Nusra, al Qaeda's affiliate fighting to oust the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

    "I can confirm this individual was a U.S. citizen involved in a suicide bombing in Syria," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said at a news briefing.....snip~

    So....? Are we supposed to be angry or upset or something? The guy is dead. Besides, I haven't believed anything that Jen Psaki has said for years. Nothing new here, move along!

    One more terrorist down. The US should supply weapons to whoever is losing, to keep both sides killing each other and out of our corners of the world.

    Well.....not really. Just that it was an American fighting for the Syrian Rebels/Terrorists and that he came from Florida.

    The only other concern.....is how many more there are already here in the US.

    I would not be against Mercs being paid to go out and hunt them down. Be a whole lot cheaper too.
