The US has played footsie with Al Qaeda in Syria for five years. Hidden in legalese and precisely worded public statements is a shameful record of using terrorist militias as a proxy army to destroy Syria, a target on the imperial hit list since at least 9/11 of 2001.

Al Qaeda’s Ties to US-Backed Syrian Rebels

The totality of the two letters from Ratney underlines the reluctance of the United States to present an ultimatum to its Syrian clients, no matter how clearly they are implicated in Al Qaeda operations against the ceasefire. Last spring, the State Department never publicly commented on the participation by the U.S.-supported armed groups in the Nusra Front offensive in violation of the ceasefire agreement, effectively providing political cover for it.

The decision by U.S.-supported armed groups in March to defy the ceasefire was taken in the knowledge that Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia had agreed to resupply the Nusra Front-led commands in the northwest and had even provided shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles to Nusra’s close ally Ahrar al Sham.”
