Twelve years after 9/11, the U.S. has changed sides. The Long War Journal reported on June 29 that the Al Nusrah Front for the People of the Levant, which is al Qaedas affiliate in Syria, has cooperated with Free Syrian Army units to establish sharia, or Islamic law, in Aleppo and in eastern Syria. What is the Free Syrian Army? The "moderates" whom we are training and to whom we are giving weapons: the US government is backing the Free Syrian Army despite the groups known ties to the Al Nusrah Front.

‘just following orders....’
Who thought this was a good idea?
Dude, Rangers are training them @ JSOC.
Treason in the highest 0office in this country, and the House looks the other way.
I really hope Assad wins this one just to be able to rub it into O’s nose. I hope the Ruskies are training Assad’s folks with new weapons.
Follow the money.

As long as this muslim sits in OUR whitehouse we can expect
these things to happen. Right now an enemy of America is

Freedom Outpost News had an article the other day asking if civil war was upon us following the sellout over the shutdown and debt ceiling. I believe that we ARE in a civil war, we’re just not shooting at each other, YET!
It is beyond clear that zero and his “administration”, the Dem Party and their RINO fellow travelers are out of control and doing everything they can that the majority of taxpayers and voters oppose. This is the very scenario the Founding Fathers tried to avert when they created the Constitution and, before the ink was dry on the original document, greedy politicians began plotting ways to undermine it.
Well, they have succeeded. For all intents and purposes, the Constitution is trash and we are letting these traitors wipe their feet on it! The rule of law is dead and the thugocracy is in control.
And, all we will ever do is sit around going “we’ll get’em next time”, meaning the next election. Well, the thugs have finally figured out how to stuff the ballot boxes and CHEAT the next election. They keep proving it.
But, we take comfort in knowing that “we’ll get’em next time.”
What could possibly go wrong?
The Caliph has his janissaries.
“Treason in the highest 0office in this country, and the House looks the other way.”
The House is too busy investigating barricades.
I feel nauseous.
