NewsRescue- On a February 26th BBC interview, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted that Alqaeda, Hamas and other global US-labeled terrorist organizations were on the same side as USA official policy, supporting the opposition in Syria.
Clinton said, “We have a very dangerous set of actors in the region, Al-Qaeda, Hamas, and those who are on our terrorist list, to be sure, supporting – claiming to support the opposition [in Syria].” (watch BBC video)
This of course, once again is a very uncomfortable, but hardly unusual position for the United States. It can be recollected that during the armed ousting and assassination of Libya’s leader, Muammar Gaddafi, Obama’s terrorism adviser, John Brennan similarly acknowledged that the US was working with terrorist organizations, precisely, AQIM (Alqaeda In the Maghreb) and LIFG (Libya’s arm of Alqaeda) to depose the Libyan ruler. According to reports, Alqaeda terrorists even were airlifted into Syria by NATO forces.
Some members of the LIFG [Al Qaeda’s Libyan Islamic Fighting Group offshoot] in the past had connections with al Qaeda in Sudan, Afghanistan or Pakistan. Others dropped their relationship with al Qaeda entirely. It seems from their statements and support for establishing a democracy in Libya that this faction of LIFG does not support al Qaeda. We’ll definitely be watching to see whether this is for real or just for show. – John Brennan, Wednesday, August 31st, 2011
Shortly after, Libya was categorized as the worlds first official terrorist run nation, as Alqaeda flags were the symbol of the victory of the NTC and these flags were seen even on top of the Libya Benghazi Court house (view Telegraph), as seen in the image below from Daily News and viewable as the first source on Wikipedia’s page on the ‘Alqaeda flag.’

Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri’s has also publicly expressed support for Syrian rebel forces.
These terrorists have been blamed for bloody attacks that have killed both Syrian regime officials and innocent civilians, including a bombing earlier this month in Syria’s second city of Aleppo which killed 28 people.
The recent Arab League report, which was almost universally ignored by the mainstream media, also concluded that both sides of the conflict were responsible for indiscriminate violence and that terrorist groups were helping the rebels carry out attacks.
Despite the admission that terrorists are aiding opposition forces in Syria, the establishment media has attempted to pour cold water on the issue, primarily through mouthpieces like ‘Syria Danny’ – an “activist” who has been afforded ample time by the corporate press to beg for a military invasion.
“It is richly ironic that the unelected fundamentalist Sunni regimes of the Persian Gulf are supporting Al Qaeda affiliated groups within Syria purportedly to “bring about democratic reforms,” writes Professor Michel Chossudovsky. “This is the same dynamic that prevailed in Libya where the overthrow of that country’s government by Western and Gulf Arab powers has now led to a collapse in human rights and social conditions.”
Despite claims to the contrary, a general in the Free Syria Army, the opposition militia, has told journalists that the rebels are being armed with anti-aircraft missiles by the United States and France.
“In Homs on Tuesday, a general claiming to be from the rebel group appeared on camera and told a journalist from Reuters news agency that “French and American assistance has reached us and is with us.” When asked to elaborate on the nature of the assistance he added, “We now have weapons and anti-aircraft missiles and, God willing, with all of that we will defeat Bashar [President Assad],” reports RT.
Former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds also reported that US troops landed on the Jordanian and Syrian border back in December for the purpose of training militants to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad.
It was also revealed earlier this month that British Special Forces are already on the ground in Syria advising and directing the rebel army.
