Al Qaeda Is Not “Benefitting From” the Syrian Uprising … It is CAUSING It

No, Terrorists Are Not Just Showing Up to “Exploit” the Chaos

The mainstream media admits that Al Qaeda is fighting against the Syrian government.

The Syrian opposition is largely comprised of Al Qaeda terrorists. See this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this and this.

However, the pro-war media says that Al Qaeda is simply capitalizing on the chaos created by the civil war between the people and the government.

But the top U.S. intelligence official has said that the terrorist bombings in Syria are the work of Al Qaeda:

Bombing attacks in Damascus and Aleppo since December “had all the earmarks of an al-Qaeda-like attack,” James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, told the Senate Armed Services Committee.

“And so we believe al-Qaeda in Iraq is extending its reach into Syria,” he said.

His comments confirmed earlier reports that US officials suspected al-Qaeda’s hand in the bombings and follows a recent video message from al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in which he endorses the uprising against Assad’s rule.

The intelligence chief also notes that Al Qaeda’s top leader endorses jihad against the Syrian government:

His comments confirmed earlier reports that US officials suspected al-Qaeda’s hand in the bombings and follows a recent video message from al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in which he endorses the uprising against Assad’s rule.

And see this.

In fact, terrorists have been responsible for much of the violence inside Syria for many months.

For example, according to the large German newspaper FAZ, those massacred in Hama were on the same side as Syrian leader Assad.

Outside monitors have confirmed that the situation on the ground is much different than it is being portrayed in the Western media.

So Al Qaeda is not “capitalizing” on the violence … they are the ones who have been doing most of the violence for many months.

And the U.S. has been arming the Syrian opposition since 2006, even though Secretary of State Clinton admits that will help Al Qaeda.

American government officials and corporate media are applauding Al Qaeda attacks in Syria. See this, this and this. Rather than condemning suicide terrorist attacks, they simply say Al Qaeda’s bombings show that the “window is closing” for Assad, and he should give up power. (Samples here, here and here – the latter tweeted by U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice right after an Al Qaeda bomb attack.)

The U.S. government has been consistently planning regime change in Syria and Libya for 20 years, and dreamed of regime change – using false flag terror – for 50 years.


Al-Qaida turns tide for rebels in battle for eastern Syria

As they stood outside the commandeered government building in the town of Mohassen, it was hard to distinguish Abu Khuder’s men from any other brigade in the Syrian civil war, in their combat fatigues, T-shirts and beards.

But these were not average members of the Free Syrian Army. Abu Khuder and his men fight for al-Qaida. They call themselves the ghuraba’a, or “strangers”, after a famous jihadi poem celebrating Osama bin Laden’s time with his followers in the Afghan mountains, and they are one of a number of jihadi organisations establishing a foothold in the east of the country now that the conflict in Syria has stretched well into its second bloody year.

They try to hide their presence. “Some people are worried about carrying the [black] flags,” said Abu Khuder. “They fear America will come and fight us. So we fight in secret. Why give Bashar and the west a pretext?” But their existence is common knowledge in Mohassen. Even passers-by joke with the men about car bombs and IEDs.

According to Abu Khuder, his men are working closely with the military council that commands the Free Syrian Army brigades in the region. “We meet almost every day,” he said. “We have clear instructions from our [al-Qaida] leadership that if the FSA need our help we should give it. We help them with IEDs and car bombs. Our main talent is in the bombing operations.” Abu Khuder’s men had a lot of experience in bomb-making from Iraq and elsewhere, he added.
