Islamofascist Killers Threaten Syria
They're Washington favorites!
by Stephen Lendman
They're merciless cutthroat murderers. They commit grotesque atrocities. Torture, beheadings, and other monstrous savagery are all in a day's work.
They're Washington favorites. They're recruited, heavily armed, trained, funded and directed in all US regional wars. Ronald Reagan called earlier equivalents "freedom fighters." Some got White House visits.
A March 1983 photo showed Afghan Mujahideen fighters there. Reagan called them "an inspiration to those who love freedom."
He called Nicaraguan Contra killers "our brothers, these freedom fighters and we owe them our help. They are the moral equal of our founding fathers."
History doesn't just rhyme. It repeats in horrifyingly disturbing ways.
