Obama's $1.3 Billion in Syrian Aid Helping Al Qaeda
Posted By Daniel Greenfield On September 25, 2013 @ 11:12 am In The Point
At the United Nations, Obama said, I "urge all nations here to step up to meet humanitarian needs in Syria and surrounding countries. America has committed over a billion dollars to this effort, and today, I can announce that we will be providing an additional $340 million."
A billion dollars is a lot of money. 1.34 billion is even more money.
But where is all that money going. Some of it is going to Al Qaeda as this photo of an Islamic State of Iraq (Al-Qaeda in Iraq) commander hanging out in a USAID tent in Syria shows.
This isn't the first such report.
ISIS have seized weapons and equipment from the Free Syrian Army. And members of the FSA have joined the Al-Nusra Front taking weapons and equipment with them.
Even the non-lethal USAID materials are falling into Al-Qaeda's hands.
While Obama cuts the military to the bone (while expecting it to fight all his wars) he is squandering billions on aid to terrorists.
It's the final insult to soldiers whose health care premiums are going up while that money is spent on arming and aiding those trying to kill them.
