So, Obama's directive says no lethal weapons. Apparently, that is the only limit on lethality. The not-so-secret base trains Syrian rebels to fight an insurgent war that inludes suicide bombings. The rebels are transported about seventy miles down the road from Adana, Turkey to Aleppo, Syria to practice their black arts. The Obama administration does not provide lethal weapons, just lethal training and coordination.
Who are these rebels? German intelligence knows who some of them are, al Qaeda.
"German intelligence estimates that "around 90" terror attacks that "can be attributed to organizations that are close to al-Qaeda or jihadist groups" were carried out in Syria between the end of December and the beginning of July, as reported by the German daily Die Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ). This was revealed by the German government in a response to a parliamentary question." Asia Times, July 24
Wait! Isn't al Qaeda the enemy? Aren't they the reason we're still in Afghanistan. Didn't that organization get credit for 9/11? Now they're fighting on the same side that the intelligence/stupidity finding endorsed? Who is al Qaeda working for anyway?
We face huge issues as a nation. How do we get people back to work at productive, well-paying jobs? How do we build a sustainable economy; an economy free of financial fraud, not subject boom and bust cycles? What is the solution to so many people struggling with the costs of life sustaining health care? When will we as a nation take responsibility for and act on the calamitous climate change that we helped create?
Obviously, the president has those and other vital questions under control. Why else would he waste his time meddling in the internal affairs of a sovereign state that posed no imminent danger to us?
