Is America Helping Al Qaeda Take Over Syria?

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.”
