Obama-backed Syrian rebels say al-Qaida has seized their bases and stolen weapons

Obama’s Free Syrian Army “moderates” have in the past teamed up with al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front. So when they say their bases and weapons have been seized, how complicit are they? Either way, this is yet another instance of Obama enabling jihad worldwide.


“U.S.-backed Syrian rebels say al-Qaida militants have seized their bases and stolen weapons in a series of raids in the northern Idlib province,” Associated Press, March 13, 2016:

BEIRUT (AP) — Al-Qaeda militants swept through a rebel-held town in northern Syria in a display of dominance Sunday, arresting U.S.-backed fighters and looting weapons stores belonging to the Free Syrian Army.

The militants belonging to the al-Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front along with allied jihadists have been moving to exert their authority over rebel-held areas in Idlib province since a partial ceasefire to the country’s five-year conflict took effect two weeks ago, extinguishing patriotic demonstrations and sidelining nationalist militias.

The FSA’s 13th Division said on Twitter Sunday that Nusra fighters were going door to door in the town of Maarat Numan and arresting its cadres after Nusra, alongside fighters from the Jund al-Aqsa faction, seized Division 13 posts the night before….

The Nusra Front arrested U.S.-supplied fighters belonging to FSA’s 30th division last summer and seized their weapons in a major embarrassment to the U.S. government’s train-and-equip program which was meant to support carefully vetted “moderate” rebels.

    Obama is not much different from old dead Moe.
    Slithering in from who knows where, claiming to be the Savior of America, preaching “hope” and “change we can believe in”, and siding with “the people” making all the promises they wanted to hear.
    Then like Moe, once in power, he stabbed “the people” in the back, breaking all promises; and built up his own people to make war, making up laws that favored his own, and weakened and destroyed “the people” and their culture, claiming some god-given wisdom and right to do as he pleased.
    And when “the people” complained about the lies and abuses, he just further chided them about their inferiority, as he loosed the devils from Guantanemo, and opened the gates for more evil to enter the country unopposed.
    He will leave only a harmed and weakened people, with a great evil growing in their midst.

    That is our Barry’s legacy so far, …and what more evil will he wrought in his remaining months?? If the government weren’t so impotent and beholding, both he and Hillary would have been taken to task for their treasonous words and actions.


      i’m not sure Barry isn’t just a puppet and spokesman for the real power players that lurk around in the background pulling all the strings

    All the hussain backed “Free syrian army” was the delivery agency to facilitate the distribution of American arms to isis. After all, it’s the fastest growing terrorist franchise in the world, there is money to be made as a “preferred” supplier to them.




    US under Obama has been supplying ISIS for a long time now. These are just stories they like to tell. ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Nusra Front are all just US/CIA backed terrorist armies to overthrow Assad in syria

    Was it not Al Baghdadi who was in the photo of “moderate groups ” who met with John McCain among others in Syria when all this started..?
    An how many times have so called moderate groups supposedly aligned with the FSA gone over to ISIS and it’s affiliates taking their weapons with them.
    Like Pamela says, the Obama admin would have to be ham-fistedly stupid or complicit in the provision of arms to ISIS.

  • Obama truly needs to be on the receiving end of a terrorist attack! One that puts the Muslim Queer boy in the dirt for good!

    We keep making this mistake time after time whether it’s Democrats or Republicans. We have a knack for backing the wrong horse , ignoring fighters who would give thre the shits off their back whereas the Turks , a NATO, member, previously closed their bases to us and or NATO allies and when they agreed to fight IS they started bombing Kurd. The Kurd are a formidable match for IS, motivated they are fighting for their samilies and villages. Have mews armed them? No! Ankara doesn’t want us to and Syryia/Iraq don’t want us to. We gave all those weapons to Itaq now owned by Is. We supplied many groups in Asia, South. America Yemen and Poof; it’s gone. Now Egypt would have remained a staunch Ally if we had kept relations with the vile Muslim Brotherhood and kept our military contracts. No we stayed with the MB OBAMA. So, they took there business to Russia. 48 years of Diplomatic efforts down the sewer Ombama.
