This admission is going to disappear from the White House website next week, when the office passes to Donald Trump. Barack Obama admitted to supporting “extremists” in Syria, which are Al Qaeda, Al Nusrah, Al Sham, ISIS/ISIL.
This fits perfectly in line with his actions vis a vis Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, which were all exposed repeatedly for supporting the terrorists. No sanctions or punitive actions of any sort have been instituted against any of these sponsors of international terrorism. Far from it, the US and its Western allies have sent many billions of dollars of weapons to the perpetrators, not held them accountable. They are partners in crime.

Readout of President Obama’s Call with Prime Minister Erdogan of TurkeyPresident Obama spoke by phone today from California with Prime Minister Erdogan of Turkey, at the Prime Minister’s request, about developments in Syria and Egypt. 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. The President and Prime Minister expressed concern about the situation in Egypt and a shared commitment to supporting a democratic and inclusive way forward. The two leaders agreed to have their teams continue to coordinate closely to promote our shared interests. The President gave his best wishes to the Prime Minister and the Turkish people on the beginning of their Ramazan holiday.
“Due to these rockets [American-made TOW anti-tank missiles], we reached a balance with the regime. Our tanks came from Libya via Turkey, joined by the [BM-21] multiple rocket launchers.”
Al Ezz went on to add that training on how to use these weapons came directly from the US and its allies. When Jabhat Al-Nusra was besieged, Al Ezz said they “had officers from Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Israel and America here… Experts in the use of satellites, rockets, reconnaissance and thermal security cameras.”
“Israel is now giving us support because Israel is at war with Syria and with Hezbollah,” Al Ezz said.
“The West does not actually hand the weapons to al-Qaida — let alone to ISIS — but the system they’ve constructed leads precisely to that end. The weapons conduit that the West gave to the FSA is understood to be a sort of Wal-Mart that the radical groups can take weapons and use to fight Assad. The weapons migrate along the line to the more radical elements.”
The people who run the American empire don’t care if you find out that they arm and train Al Qaeda terrorists. You people are too dumb and cowardly to do a God damned thing about it. They can allow 9/11, burn up the Constitution, and reward the same terrorists in multiple countries, and Americans are so gratuitously stupid that they will even refuse to believe it or exert any effort to learn about the actual situation.
US weapons are being delivered to Jabhat Al-Nusra by governments that Washington supports, a militant commander told the German media, adding that American instructors were in Syria to teach how to use the new equipment.

“The fact that terrorists are going to Europe is part of Turkish policy and Turkey keeps on getting a slap on the hand, but they are let off the hook.”
Abdullah made his remarks during a wide-ranging debriefing to Congress on 11 January , the day a meeting with the US president, Barack Obama, was cancelled.
Abdullah said that Erdogan believed in a “radical Islamic solution to the region”.
Abdullah claimed that “radicalisation was being manufactured in Turkey” and asked the US senators why the Turks were training the Somali army.
