Obama Recognizes Syrian Rebels Who Pledge Allegiance to al-Qaida

"We've made a decision that the Syrian Opposition Coalition is now inclusive enough, is reflective and representative enough of the Syrian population that we consider them the legitimate representative of the Syrian people in opposition to the Assad regime," President Obama told Barbara Walters during an interview Tuesday.

So he means now that the coalition apparently meets some sort of affirmative action hiring scheme, we can endorse them?

No, that's not it.

Obama's Administration has unofficially recognized the Syrian rebels for some time now, since the U.S. has been the major funder and armorer of the opposition. The Administration just didn't want the American public to recognize what it's been up to in the Middle East.

The sole reason for the uprising against Bashar Assad isn't because the Syrian people suddenly had a craving for freedom, despite the White House narrative, it's because Assad wouldn't play along with Obama's schemes for the Middle East.

What Obama's announcement means is that now that he's secured his re-election, Obama is moving into a new phase in his confrontation with Russia, which is what the Syrian "civil war" is really all about.

Twenty-nine rebel groups have pledged their allegiance to the Nusra Front, an al-Qaida aligned group that killed U.S. troops in Iraq. Funding terrorist groups is a crime under the National Defense Authorization Act. We're dealing with them anyway.

In fact, our funneling of money, arms and al-Qaida-connected personnel into Syria gets to the heart of what happened in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, a story which has been all but buried alive by the mainstream media. And it gets to the heart of what's wrong with Obama's Middle East policies.

Obama wants to be the big man in the Middle East. He apparently figures he can accomplish that by overturning existing governments and installing new players in the capital buildings.

Most of those new players have turned out to be members of the Muslim Brotherhood or to have connections to it. Rather than moving toward democracy, the "Arab Spring" countries have mostly traded one tyrant for another, with the added bonus of the implementation of sharia law in those lands where it wasn't the norm before.

The Obama Administration seems to be OK with tyrants so long as they follow Obama's wishes. But therein lies the problem. The attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans can be viewed as terrorist-aligned groups asserting their independence and reminding Obama who's really in charge.

"Obviously, with that recognition (of the Syrian coalition) comes responsibilities," Obama told Walters. "To make sure that they organize themselves effectively, that they are representative of all the parties,  that they commit themselves to a political transition that respects women's rights and minority rights."

It's statements like that last about women's and minority rights that make you wonder if Obama is really that stupid or if he's just playing to his liberal audience.

Publicly, Obama seems to think that he can rule the Middle East with the force of his personality, but so far, it just looks like his foreign policy is one colossal miscalculation.

    Obama is in collusion with the Muslim Brotherhood ( Egypt/Libya) and this fits very well with their plan of establishing the Caliphate.

    I hope people have noticed that in his past 4 years in office, he NEVER once addressed the misogyny that is occurring in Islamic countries nor the persecution, enslavement and murder of Christians and other non-Muslim groups. Using the leverage of the bully pulpit and control of foreign aid money he could very speak to these issues but it will never happen...........so don't hold your breath.

    I hope that as the pieces fall together, people will wake up to the Impostor in the White House and show him the door........but by then, it will be too late.

      And he proclaims his ties to Chrisianity . He,s a Muslum not a Christian and this is the way he articulates he's no Christian .

    • gypsy314

      This explains why he let four Americans die waiting on help that was never sent. Liberal media still covering it up.

    Obama is a muslim, marxist communist. He sticks up with the Muslim Brotherhood, his 'brothers'. IMPEACH THE TRAITOR.

      You're a bunch of morons, this Obama guy is Christian, the Muslim Brotherhood itch to murder guys like him. It obvious you are the modern day KKK! Racists, bigots, islampohibic and homophobics to the core. Every single comment is an fake American, real racists!

      Obama can't be impeached, he haven't done anything wrong! What part of that do you not get, and there is NOT corruption in Congress, It's filled with level-headed people who aren't racist, bigot black-hating scumbags!

      Obama is NO traitor! You're just a racist scumbag!
      Obama is NO Communist! You're just a racist scumbag!
      Obama is NO Marxist! You're just a racist scumbag!

      I was right! Anyone who hates Barack Obama is a damn racist!

        CAREFULLY, put down the mouse, wipe the spittle from your face and shirt and take your meds! Everything will be OK in just a few minutes after that!

    When I see pictures of Obama with that angry look and mouth distorted and wide open I think of what Lucifer would look like..

    • samtman

      Incase you did not know, you can;t be a Muslim Communist and Marxist, Muslims can't be Communists, because real Cmmunist don't believe in God . The Karl Marx said that thei opiat of the people is religion.

      • notstupid

        Neither do Muslims. They don't worship the same God we do.

          When the grand mufty ( ) visited hitler before WW II there was no problem with that, because both worshipped the d-evil one, and he went back to egypt with lots of propaganda ideas from goebels.
          These ideas have been implemented ever since by the muslims everywhere; hence slowly taking over the world (I guess the blitzkrieg idea was not to their advantage though)

    • Isa Gee

      and, I start to vomit uncontrollably.

    So...he's a muslim, what does anyone expect.

  • dansama

    Liberalism is the
    raw sewage of a terminally ill society no longer able to keep a toilet clean
    and sanitary.

  • samtman

    You can't win on this posting, last time the editors of this posting were blaming Obama for not helping the the Syrian rebels with arms and no fly zones.

    • Ted Crawford

      You are correct samtman. When we advocated for him to support the rebels, the Muslim Brotherhood had yet to become involved! We had hoped our support would keep them from being involved! Obama, instead waited untill now, AFTER their involvement to act! That, save for those blinded by the fog of Progressivism, is Transparent!

  • Dave P.

    So Obama is funding terrorists and violating the NDAA. This puts him in a Catch 22 as, under the NDAA, even he can be "withheld indefinitely" for aiding a terrorist organization and the only way he could conceivably avoid it is to finally admit he's not a US citizen.

  • Pebbles

    The picture of BO on this article looks like a person who has lost all sanity, and he actually looks posessed, just like Hitler did. He does not represent me, and he never will. The next four years will be a really bumpy road. We are stuck with him for now, but not Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and their ilk. We need to get rid of them in the next election.

    • http://www.facebook.com/fritz.riess.7 Fritz Riess

      No, we are not 'stuck' with him.
      Needed is a good leader with a crack team of one of our commandos to remove this evil pest once and for all.
      With the head of the snake removed, order will return again shortly.

  • Yup it's just me

    When will America wise up to what is really going in this world? My guess is when it's to late.

  • Greg

    Gee, what would Obummer do if the people rose up against him and the Democratic congress like they do in the Arab world? Would he order US Troops to fire on the people?
    Impeach the lier and imposter now. Not a natural born citizen.

    Obama belongs in a rubber room. (after he serves time).

  • gnafuasusual

    We've been watching this happen for a few years and it appears that Americans have been footing the bill to bring on the 'wonderful' Muslim Brotherhood! That's right. Americans have been footing the bill each time weapons and air planes are disbursed to the al-Qaida terrorists; this includes Egypt, now, with Morsi at the helm. Many names have been given to the terrorists but it all boils down to the same thing, Muslims take over the world. Congress has enough "information" to start proceedings right now. They won't do anything until they or their families are touched with the violence.Need SOS, badly. Alabama is too late.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=516859771 John Sweet

      not only footing the bill but using our troops and funds to expand their influences in the region. After all Obama has placed the Brotherhood inside our Nations security system the White House and the Office of the Secretary of State. And strange How shortly after they were placed inside out Homeland Security network all of the CIA's agents in the Middle East were named, hunted down and killed. Effectively blinding the USA to such coming events as Benghazi, which I think was part of the appeasement efforts by Obama to further the reach and influence of the Brotherhood in the Middle East

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_JRJM5QPY37RGEDMDNZP7POFHQM Ernest

    This isn't a big surprize ,Obama has always favored terrorist over legitiment governments . Hamas over Isreal for sure .

  • notstupid

    Who's surprised? Anybody? He's helped put them in Egypt and Libya already, working on all the others.

  • http://www.facebook.com/fritz.riess.7 Fritz Riess

    Hitler realized he didn't quite meet up to the devils expectation,
    because he only hated Jews, blacks and gypsies, so he mated with a black
    woman and then denied that the offspring was his.

    The black boy realized growing up that he didn't meet expectations of the blacks or the whites because he was mixed.

    So he became the devils perfect spawn just as hitler hoped and hated
    without discrimination: he hated both whites and blacks and everyone
    else for that matter!

    He did have one love though: himself.

  • Friscolady

    I have family in Israel, and they put it quite simply - "there is a terrorist in Washington".

  • Red

    Of course, they are his brothers. He provided the fire power that has resulted in the Islamists taking Egypt and Libya, why not Syria? Three million Republicans did not vote so Obama could be reelected. I guess they just can't count.

  • de

    O is not miscalculating. His plan is to bring sharia to the world; to bring the mahdi is his goal; divide and conquer is his purpose.

  • gypsy314

    And democrats voted for this fool.

  • http://www.facebook.com/charles.sansing.54 Charles Sansing

    Obama is showing more and more that he is muslim at heart. He will declare his real muslim beliefs soon and exceed the idea we have had that he is a plant by muslims to take America!

    • Ted Crawford

      He has already done that! Both through his books and again with George Stephanopoulos
