Obama sent the US secretary of state to “broaden the base of moderate opposition” so as to end the Syrian war, and admitted that that meant that he could meet with a coalition of “rebel” groups headed by Osama Bin Laden’s former courier Abu Khalid al-Sur.
Under Obama, al Qaeda has murdered American officials and set ablaze the US consulate in Libya, seized parts of that country, taken over Mali and turned it into a terror state, wreaked havoc in Africa, taken over parts of Iraq, is waging a bloody war in Syria to wrest control away from Assad, and has partnered with the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
Who is the JVer, Mr. Obama? Keep your head about you, Mr. President.
“Al-Qaeda Behead 10 Prisoners & Mount Their Heads On Spikes In Syria,” By The Huffington Post, January 24, 2014
Al-Qaeda affiliated rebels are reported to have beheaded ten men and mounted their heads on spikes in a bloody day of fighting which saw them take control of the northern border town of Jarabulus.
Al Jazeera English described the fighting as comprising “scenes of medieval violence” as more than 1,000 refugees fled across the border to Turkey.
The fighting is reported to have occurred on 17 January between rebel groups Liwa al-Tawhid Bridgade and the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), factions battling amidst the insurgency against President Bashar al-Assad.
Witness Muhammad Jader told the channel: “They lined us up against the wall and the emir told them not to waste bullets.
“Suddenly they grabbed one guy and pinned him down on his stomach. Then one man from ISIS put his knee on his back, shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ and cut off his head with a knife.
“They chose people at random to kill. There was no logic.”
The 22-year-old added one man was beheaded because cigarettes were found on his person.
The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says while the ISIS fighters have reclaimed the town, they were recently ousted from nearby Saraqeb.
Citing the Aleppo Media Centre, online newspaper Al Monitor reports the Jarabulus border crossing was closed by the Turkish government on 20 January after the ISIS took control of the city.
It adds the fighters have been imposing radical lifestyle restrictions, including banning smoking and music, demanding use of the full-face veil and closing all shops before and during prayer times.
Reuters reports the ISIS still controls large amounts of territory across northeastern Syria, including Raqqa.
More than 100, 000 people have been killed and millions made homeless since the first peaceful demonstrations against the Syrian regime in 2011.
Former war crimes prosecutors who authored the report compared the bodies they saw to images of Nazi death camp victims.
Peace talks are currently underway in Switzerland.
