"We have good relations with our brothers in the FSA. For us, the infidels are those who cooperate with the West to fight Islam."
It hasn't happened in this order yet... only because Congress fitfully put a hold on Obama's plan to send weapons to terrorists. The hold is off so the Free Syrian Army aka the Syrian People (TM) aka the Muslim Brotherhood will be free to sell American weapons to Al Qaeda.
Since the Al Nusra Front aka Al Qaeda in Iraq is better financed than the FSA, and since the FSA is little better than collections of fighters who move from unit to unit, robbing and looting along the way, a whole lot of those weapons, including the anti-tank weapons that Obama Inc. has decided to send to the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists of the FSA will end up in the hands of Al Qaeda terrorists.
And we asked its vali [wali] – or governor of Allepo province, Abu Atheer – why some accuse them of trying to weaken Syrian opposition groups by taking control over border villages.
He didn’t want to be filmed. But he told us: if we wanted to cut the supply lines it is easier for us to take the warehouses of the FSA. Anyhow we are buying weapons from the FSA. we bought 200 anti-aircraft missiles and Koncourse anti tank weapons. We have good relations with our brothers in the FSA. For us, the infidels are those who cooperate with the West to fight Islam.
If confirmed, purchasing weapons from the Free Syria Army won’t be good news for the West.
The Concourse is Russian, but was provided through shipments from Qatar and Saudi Arabia that the United States was aware of and turned a blind eye to it. Just as Obama did in Libya.
Now those weapons are, predictably, going to Al Qaeda.
