Syrian Jabhat al Nusra Front chief Abou Mohamad al-Joulani pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda leader Sheik Ayman al-Zawahri. They are fighting alongside the Syrian rebel forces and are battling to win the hearts and minds of the people.
Al Qaeda in Benghazi has been training fighters to infiltrate Syrian rebel forces that we are backing. They are providing fighters to the al-Nusra front.
Libya, which is rapidly becoming a failed state, is a breeding ground for al Qaeda and they are now sending forces to Syria. If Mr. Obama had followed up on capturing the terrorists who attacked our Benghazi mission, that would have made an impact but he let the opportunity slip by.
They go overland through Turkey and then into Syria. They are also spreading out throughout the region.
Seven of the nine rebel forces are led by al Qaeda via al Nusra. If we helped Syria before the Free Syrian Army joined up with al Nusra, we could have made a difference.
Syria is becoming the new front in the terrorist jihad.
They plan to eventually attack the United States. Keeping the terrorists busy overseas so they don’t attack the homeland was an effective policy.
The US administration wants to punish the Assad machine but they are not looking closely at the fact that they are helping al Qaeda.
There is a possibility that Iran could take action against Israel or the US though Russia probably will not because Obama is only going to lob some surface-to-air missiles.
