Photo of the al-Aqsa Islamic Brigades, a faction of the opposition Free Syrian Army fighting to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad, shows Islamic fighters marching away from a burning U.S. Capitol.
Several photos of The al-Aqsa Islamic Brigades appeared on Facebook. They are a small faction of Sunni rebels fighting with the Free Syrian Army, our allies in Syria. Other photos on the page showed them holding the black al Qaeda flag. The photos have since been scrubbed.
The Al Aqsa Avatar
NBC consultant, Evan Kohlmann, found the Facebook page. He said Al-Aqsa has not been designated a terrorist group, though they fight alongside the Tawhid Brigrade which is linked to the al Qaeda faction of the rebel forces – Jabhat al Nusra.
We shouldn’t be surprised. We know Al Qaeda has infiltrated the Free Syrian Army. Rep. McCaul believes 50% or more of the Free Syrian Army is comprised of al-Qaeda linked groups. He is not alone in this calculation. Several representatives have heard the same intel.
John Kerry spoke before the Foreign and Commonwealth office in the UK Sunday, again purporting that we have a moral responsibility to send Assad a message. He has given Assad one week to hand over his chemical arsenal. Hello? John?
Can you say ‘too little, too late?’
A former army medic who was a member of this brigade was indicted in March for terrorism. He is seen on video, posted on NBC Investigations, showing his support for these rebels. We indicted him for fighting with them, but we expect Americans to support these same people in the Syrian war?!?!?
In another video posted by NBC Investigations, the members of the Brigades can be heard saying:
“We from the Al-Aqsa Islamic Brigades in Aleppo and its suburbs announce that we are joining Liwaa at-Tawhid.” They ended with, “Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar,” the Islamic war cry which Senator John McCain thinks merely means ‘Thank God.’
Members of the Free Syrian Army have been looting churches and confiscating Bibles among other treasures.
They believe the ‘Bibles are more dangerous than chemical weapons.’ Watch the video.

This incompetent administration would have you believe that we should lose more of our military fighting alongside al Qaeda. We are supposed to trust them. They can’t even find the Benghazi terrorists despite the fact that our news organizations have found some of them and interviewed at least one several times.
Listen to the next video in which McDonough answers a direct question with an evasive answer, and lodges a false conclusion.
The next video gives you an idea of how we treat our heroes whom we send in harm’s way. Are you going to trust these people?
