Al Qaeda Is Not “Benefitting From” the Syrian Uprising … It’s CAUSING It

No, Terrorists Are Not Just Showing Up to “Exploit” the Chaos

The mainstream media admits that Al Qaeda is fighting against the Syrian government.

The Syrian opposition is largely comprised of Al Qaeda terrorists.  See this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this and this.

However, the pro-war media says that Al Qaeda is simply capitalizing on the chaos created by the civil war between the people and the government.

But the top U.S. intelligence official has said that the terrorist bombings in Syria are the work of Al Qaeda:

Bombing attacks in Damascus and Aleppo since December “had all the earmarks of an al-Qaeda-like attack,” James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, told the Senate Armed Services Committee.

“And so we believe al-Qaeda in Iraq is extending its reach into Syria,” he said.

His comments confirmed earlier reports that US officials suspected al-Qaeda’s hand in the bombings and follows a recent video message from al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in which he endorses the uprising against Assad’s rule.

A new report out of the RAND Corporation confirms that since December:

Al Qaeda has conducted roughly two dozen attacks, primarily against Syrian security service targets. Virtually all have been suicide attacks and car bombings, and they have resulted in more than 200 deaths and 1,000 injuries.

The U.S. intelligence chief also notes that Al Qaeda’s top leader endorses jihad against the Syrian government:

His comments confirmed earlier reports that US officials suspected al-Qaeda’s hand in the bombings and follows a recent video message from al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in which he endorses the uprising against Assad’s rule.

And see this.

In fact, terrorists have been responsible for much of the violence inside Syria for many months.

For example, according to the large German newspaper FAZ, those massacred in Hama were on the same side as Syrian leader Assad.

Outside monitors have confirmed that the situation on the ground is much different than it is being portrayed in the Western media.

So Al Qaeda is not “capitalizing” on the violence … they are the ones who have been doing most of the violence for many months.

And the U.S. has been arming the Syrian opposition since 2006, even though Secretary of State Clinton admits that will help Al Qaeda.

American government officials and corporate media are applauding Al Qaeda attacks in Syria. See this, this and this. Rather than condemning suicide terrorist attacks, they simply say Al Qaeda’s bombings show that the “window is closing” for Assad, and he should give up power.   (Samples here, here and here – the latter tweeted by U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice right after an Al Qaeda bomb attack.)

The U.S. government has been consistently planning regime change in Syria and Libya for 20 years, and dreamed of regime change – using false flag terror – for 50 years.
