After funding & arming Syrian rebels, Obama now adds to terror list

The ass-covering can’t happen fast enough. via U.S. embracing new Syrian opposition group – The Washington Post.

The Obama administration is taking a calculated risk that embracing chosen leaders of Syria’s fragmented rebels will speed the fall of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, moving this week to recognize a slate of opposition figures whose pledges of democracy Washington can do little to enforce.

The administration is expected to announce the recognition of a relatively new Syrian opposition group Wednesday when American, European and Arab diplomats meet with its leaders in Morocco.

The action is part of fast-moving diplomacy to try to guard against chaos and collapse in Syria if rebel forces succeed in ousting or killing Assad. International efforts to support moderates as successors to Assad have taken on new urgency as rebels gain ground militarily.

In a further attempt to bolster moderates and marginalize extremists in the opposition, the State Department plans to designate a leading Syrian militant group as a terrorist organization. The designation, to be announced Tuesday, identifies Jabhat al-Nusra as a global terrorist organization and an affiliate of the group al-Qaeda in Iraq.

The two steps are aimed at building a broader and more moderate coalition for a post-Assad Syria. But the Obama administration remains opposed to U.S. military intervention in Syria or providing arms directly to the rebels.

We know this is a lie because a) Clinton threatened intervention last week, and b) the NYT stated Obama secretly approved weapons transfer to the rebels, knew within weeks they were going to terrorist groups and worse – urged the emirates to ship weapons to Libya that could not be traced to the United States.

Notice of the designation was published Monday in the Federal Register. The notice indicated the paperwork was signed by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Nov. 20. In separate amendments under the Immigration Act and an existing executive order, the designation prohibits Americans from having any financial dealings with the group and freezes any of its assets under U.S. control.

This all fits too nicely into place – fund terrorists, allow Muslims in America to fund them, then ban one terrorist group – after the fact. Coincidence that the NYT ran a piece seemingly critical of the Obama administration specifically on the same group we know find out was banned on November 20?

Update: This could get uglier, faster: The Syrian rebels (again, funded and armed by Obama, funneled through Qatar and Saudi Arabia by CIA) are in full support of the now banned al Nusra:

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 people are not going to accept intervention by the West now. You were watching us die, and now that we close to victory you want to intervene? You are not welcome.”

And who did the US back as the chosen rebel leaders?

Many are linked to the Muslim Brotherhood or even more radical Salafi movements, but are thought to be men with whom the West “can do business”.

  1. A little off topic….Wouldn’t the best way to ease our debt pain would be to STOP GIVING MONEY TO PEOPLE WHO WANT TO KILL US. Damm it is not that difficult. I have been to that hellhole and lost a lot of dear buddies….Pull out and glass it, it seems that is the only way. The sad thing is we all knew the shit getting shot at us, we paid for through our taxes or wives taxes…families friends etc.etc. you get the picture

  2. I do not know what its going to take to get Muslim, socialist, American hater Obama and is wife out of office. Poor Clinton got you know what he is out of office, look at poor Nixon over paperwork and tapes. This man is not even a American, Our politicans are scared to death of him, WHY, IS AMERICA ASLEEP, I think so.

    • i agree wholeheartedly w/ what you’ve said! especially the part: our politicians are afraid of him. that lot seem to be afraid of their shadows. they are in congress & senate to advance themselves, their state’s wants & needs, & the wishes of their “benefactors”. [make that "purchasers"] we need honest, knowlegeable, articulate & fearless people to represent ALL of us…not just a select few. yes, the railroading of president nixon was shameless. he was drummed out w/ hardly more of a reason than a “high school prank”. he & his buddies did not jeopardize the nation, nor its people nor were there any deaths involved…can’t say that about the benghazi fiasco. O should be impeached for his major part in that.

      • Agreed, I’ve thought ever since it happened that Nixon was–as you say–railroaded. As for the Benghazi affair, I, and many others, find it hard to believe the obama gang and the media could sweep that under the rug, but they did–just another “bump in the road.”

    • Bill and JW, right on, both of you! We live in interesting times, eh?

  3. [...] calls them rebels and sends your tax dollars to fund and arm them. The Saudi cleric calls them mujahideen. Hat tip [...]

  4. [...] it became clear that the majority of U.S. funding was going to jihadists, Obama backtracked and named one particular group a terror group. That’s the group the undercover agent instructed him to [...]
