It is not immediately clear if President Obama authorized the strike in Syria. The official said the U.S. military is authorized to conduct counter-terrorism missions against Al Qaeda anytime.

On Barack Obama’s last day, did the military carry out this strike on its own, without White House approval, or consideration of White House policy?

Over 100 Al Qaeda fighters killed in ‘major’ US air strike in Syria, defense official says

The US Air Force conducted a second “major strike” in consecutive days killing over 100 Al Qaeda fighters at a training camp in northern Syria, a defense official with knowledge of the strike told a handful of reporters at the Pentagon on Friday.

A single U.S. Air Force B-52 bomber and an undisclosed number of drones dropped 14 precision-guided bombs at noon eastern time Thursday on an Al Qaeda “basic training” camp in Syria west of the city of Aleppo near the border with Turkey, according to the official.

“This was core Al Qaeda” said the official describing the fighters.

I can’t believe this shit appears in the Washington Post, and no one does a God damned thing about it. What has Obama done for the past 5 YEARS???

NOVEMBER 10, 2016:

Obama directs Pentagon to target al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria, one of the most formidable forces fighting Assad

“President Obama has ordered the Pentagon to find and kill the leaders of an al-Qaeda-linked group in Syria that the administration had largely ignored until now and that has been at the vanguard of the fight against the Syrian government, U.S. officials said.”

For 5 years the USA has been an ally of Al Qaeda in Syria, protecting and arming them via transfers through their so-called “moderates.” How can the US protect Al Qaeda, you may wonder, the same group that allegedly attacked the US on 9/11?

Good question.

If anyone reading this gave arms, money, or political cover to Al Qaeda.

My book will be called The Age of Treason, and Americans won’t read it.

Meet your “moderate” freedom fighters…

BBC’s Dishonest and Biased Editing

[Anonymous Saudi Official] said those groups being supplied did not include either Islamic State (IS) or al-Nusra Front, both of which are proscribed terrorist organizations. Instead, he said the weapons would go to three rebel alliances — Jaish al-Fatah (Army of Conquest), the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and the Southern Front.

Smoking Gun: “Army of Conquest”

Who are its members?

The alliance consists of a number of mostly Islamist factions, including the Nusra Front, al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate; Ahrar al-Sham, another large group; and more moderate rebel factions that have received covert arms support from the intelligence services of the United States and its allies.

ADDITIONAL:
The “Arab Spring”

With democratic uprisings beginning in Arab countries early in 2011, violence came to Syria almost immediately in March of that year.  Clashes killed multiple police officers as well as demonstrators.

Also in the first half of 2011, at the start of the “Arab Spring,” Agence France Presse reported that State Dept. official Michael Posner admitted:

“The US … has budgeted $50 million in the last two years to develop new technologies to help activists protect themselves from arrest and prosecution by authoritarian governments.  And it has organized training sessions for 5,000 activists … A session held in the Middle East about six weeks ago gathered activists from Tunisia, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon who returned to their countries with the aim of training their colleagues there.”

By August of 2011, Israeli intelligence publication DebkaFile claimed:

“NATO plans to send large quantities of anti-tank and anti-air rockets, mortars and heavy machine guns to the Syrian rebels”

The Turkish Connection

Nato member Turkey has supported the Syrian opposition rebels from the beginning.  As the BBC described it, “The Turkish government has been a key supporter of the Syrian opposition, and has allowed rebels as well as refugees onto its territory.”

A phone log appeared on the White House website that is jolting in its implications.  On August 7th, the Prime Minister of Turkey, Recep Erdogan, called Barack Obama for a chat.  In the wake of reported mass killings and kidnappings of Syrian Kurds by Al Nusra rebels, the topic of “extremists in Syria” was broached.

“The President and Prime Minister discussed the danger of foreign extremists in Syria and agreed on the importance of supporting a unified and inclusive Syrian opposition.”

This seemingly banal summary indicates Obama’s explicit support for the jihadi factions inside Syria, which potentially comprise half of the opposition forces on the ground, and are widely regarded as the more effective half.

Turkey has allowed the Syrian Al Nusra terrorists to pour across the border into Syria and then to return to safe haven. Turkey’s former Deputy Prime Minister recently accused Erdogan of supplying “heavy weapons” to the Al Nusra terrorists.

“The Erdogan government has sent a large volume of heavy weapons to the terrorist group, the al-Nusra Front, affiliated to the al-Qaeda in Syria and this is while even the US has listed the al-Nusra as a terrorist group.”

Not everything in this grand opera is what it appears to be.  War plans similar to what we’re witnessing on the ground today were developed by the Pentagon back in 1957.  The Syria plan called for US and British covert intelligence assistance to arm and support indigenous resistance movements.  Sabotage was a main feature as was a “Free Syria Committee” to stand against the Soviet backed regime.

While the US State Department blacklisted Al Nusra in December of 2012, the British waited an additional seven months until July19th, for some unknown reason.  Some angry British lawmakers finally named Syrian terrorism, “the most worrying emerging terrorist threat to the U.K. and the West.”
