A detailed reminder that the US-armed "Free Syrian Army" was mainly a PR front for Al Qaeda, ISIS and other jihadist terrorism in #Syria. A must-read:…
2) Inside #Syria, since the beginning, it was always understood that there was essentially no difference between US-armed FSA "rebels" and Nusra/terrorists. The FSA said it themselves:
3) There is also ample evidence that the US military avoided targeting Nusra (Al Qaeda) and even expected the terrorist group to welcome working with the US-armed FSA:

6) The US funneled weapons directly and indirectly (via allies) to the FSA throughout #Syria's conflict, knowing full well these weapons ended up with Al Qaeda (Nusra), Ahrar al Sham, Jaish al Islam, ISIS & other terrorist groups.
7) It's just the US's way of avoiding detection and circumventing law. When you're in year 7 of a conflict, and you noticed in year 1 that your weapons were being funneled to terrorists, you've been COMPLICIT for 6 years.
8) It's the old 'plausible deniability' game the US plays while ensuring a steady delivery of weapons to every radical jihadist group operating inside #Syria, including Al Qaeda and ISIS.
9) There's much more to emerge on US cooperation with Nusra, ISIS & other terror groups in months & yrs to come. Journalists must write these stories while the evidence still exists on the ground. So do please read this latest article on the subject:…
