White House set to green light weapons to jihadists who have vowed to destroy America

President Barack Obama has signaled that he will green light the transfer of lethal weapons to FSA militants in Syria within weeks despite the fact that such groups are being led by Al-Qaeda terrorists responsible for killing U.S. troops in Iraq who have vowed to destroy America.
“Obama is preparing to send lethal weaponry to the Syrian opposition and has taken steps to assert more aggressive U.S. leadership among allies and partners seeking the ouster of President Bashar al-Assad, according to senior administration officials,” reports the Washington Post.
Although no final decision has been made on the weapons transfer, Obama is set to reach a verdict before a planned meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in June, during which he will attempt to convince Putin to abandon his support for Syrian leader Bashar Al-Assad.
The White House is preparing to send heavy weaponry to groups that have committed numerous terrorist attacks over the last 18 months, including an incident this week where FSA rebels targeted a Russian airliner with 159 passengers on board with two ground-to-air missiles which exploded near to the civilian aircraft.
As we have exhaustively documented, opposition fighters in Syria are now dominated by sectarian extremists and jihadists who have repeatedly emphasized their hatred for America and their allegiance to Al-Qaeda.
Multiple reports now confirm that the individuals responsible for a plethora of atrocities, many of them part of the Al-Qaeda group Jabhat al-Nusra which “killed numerous American troops in Iraq,” are leading western-backed rebel forces in Syria. After the organization was declared a terrorist group by the US State Department, 29 different US-backed Syrian opposition groups pledged their allegiance to al-Nusra.
An article by McClatchy Newspapers’ David Enders documents how Jabhat al Nusra, “has become essential to the frontline operations of the rebels fighting to topple Assad,” that the group is “critical to the rebels’ military advance” and how it conducts the “heaviest frontline fighting” in “battle after battle across the country.”
A journalist cited in the article also discovered “Nusra’s fighters on every frontline he visited.”
The article quotes one of the members of the group, who stated unequivocally, “When we finish with Assad, we will fight the U.S.!”
In July 2012, the London Guardian reported that Al-Qaeda militants meet “every day” with Syrian rebels in order to train them how to build bombs.
The administration has already sent well over half a billion dollars in aid to such groups, while the CIA has overseen “a secret airlift of arms and equipment” to rebels since early 2012, according to the New York Times.
The very insurgents who Obama now plans to arm with lethal weaponry have openly espoused their radical anti-American agenda as they ransack Christian churches, burn US flags, chant anti-American slogans and sing the praises of Osama Bin Laden while glorifying the 9/11 attacks.
The same rebels set to receive weapons courtesy of US taxpayers have also made clear their intention to fly the Al-Qaeda flag over the White House.
In arming Al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria, Obama is clearly committing an impeachable offense by empowering America’s enemies, repeating the process that unfolded in Libya, where the arming of jihadists in the effort to overthrow Colonel Gaddafi led to the attack on the US consulate carried out by some of the very same NATO-backed insurgents.
