    Fail: Obama Administration Provides Weapons to Al Qaeda

    US “Military Aid” to Syrian Opposition Goes to Al Qaeda | Global Research

    American Intelligence officials are acknowledging that the bulk of the weapons flowing into Syria for the US-backed war to topple the regime of Bashar al-Assad are going into the hands of Al Qaeda and like-minded Islamist militias.
    I don't even know what to say about this. I'm at a loss for words.

    What the hell is going on at the WH? This isn't f*cking funny anymore.

    I find the website more than a little dubious.

    However, it claims to be quoting from the New York Times, though it doesn't give a link to the story.
    The only reason to be anti-libertarian is there are people you want to control that you wouldn't be able to.

    This is a serious allegation. We need credible proof.

    The article comes from an organisation set up by this guy.

    It's slightly amusing that Bronson and Hicup are taking it so seriously without knowing who's behind it.

    I don't understand supplying military aid for internal conflicts. If we want to supply aid, it should be in the form of humanitarian resources: medical care and supplies, food, clothing, etc.

    Stop funneling weapons into unstable regions, especially when conflict in those regions is crossing borders into neighboring countries. You just put more lives at risk.

    False, the article says:


    Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster, according to American officials and Middle Eastern diplomats.

    FYI: Here's the NYT info they're referencing for those interested:

    Syria News

    Oct. 14 American officials and Middle Eastern diplomats say most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster.

    In a speech at the Virginia Military Institute last Monday, Mr. Romney said he would ensure that rebel groups “who share our values” would “obtain the arms they need to defeat Assad’s tanks, helicopters and fighter jets.” That suggests he would approve the transfer of weapons like antiaircraft and antitank systems that are much more potent than any the United States has been willing to put into rebel hands so far, precisely because American officials cannot be certain who will ultimately be using them.

    But Mr. Romney stopped short of saying that he would have the United States provide those arms directly, and his aides said he would instead rely on Arab allies to do it. That would leave him, like Mr. Obama, with little direct control over the distribution of the arms.
