Check out this LA Times article, "CIA begins sizing up Islamic extremists in Syria for drone strikes: The strategy is part of the agency's secret contingency planning to protect the U.S. and its allies as the violence there grows. Some militants in Syria are seen as closely linked to Al Qaeda."
The U.S. government is the sole reason why there are Jihadist terrorist groups in Syria. Washington has backed them from the very beginning of its aggressive war against Syria's sovereignty and the Syrian people. But now it is pretending that it is an enemy of Al-Qaeda and other affiliated Jihadist terrorist groups who are fighting the Syrian state. LOL. This is cartoonish propaganda. This is Mickey Mouse shit.
This is Washington's amateurish playbook vis–à–vis Syria:
Step One: Transfer Jihadist terrorists to Syria. Supply them with all manners of weapons. Finance their terrorist operations against Syrian civilians.
Step Two: Pretend to be shocked at the Islamist presence among Syrian rebels. Publicly denounce them while still arming and financing them privately.
Step Three: Sell the lie that the Jihadist terrorists who are under your control and guidance pose a threat to you, and make preparations to intervene in Syria to go after them.
No one falls for Washington's stupid propaganda anymore. The whole world knows that Al-Qaeda is Washington's creation. Their lies are boring.
