    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has admitted that Al-Qaeda and other groups on the State Department’s terror list are on the same side as the United States in Syria and that they are aiding opposition rebels.

    In an interview with BBC News (watch video), Clinton states, “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].”

    Clinton’s admission that Al-Qaeda is supporting the armed insurrection in Syria dovetails with reports that the same Al-Qaeda terrorists who helped overthrow Colonel Gaddafi in Libya were airlifted into Syria by NATO forces.

    Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri’s has also publicly expressed support for Syrian rebel forces.

    Comment: Al Qaeda is a puppet of the CIA, they are good when they want them to be and bad when they want them to be....so who are the terrorists in the minds of the powers who have taken our government? Well, we the people are, thats what the war on freedom is all about.

    You still don't understand about the establishment controlling both sides do you.

    Did you also not know Neo-Cons are lefties?

    But the point is our government is supporting the terrorists and going after the american people because of the terrorists. ?1?

    So AQ has turned on Assad.

    And we also oppose Assad.

    Thus proving that the enemy of my enemy is NOT necessarily my friend.

    Your point?

    Agreed, g5000, what is the point here? The Russians were our allies in WW2, but they were not our friends, per se.........

    The elusive tipping point in Syria
    March 2nd, 2012 - The Syrian military's advance into the Baba Amr neighborhood of Homs has changed the dynamics of the resistance to the Assad regime - and put further pressure on Western policy-makers to find ways to help the opposition and protect Syrian civilians. But as Washington debates what's next for Syria, Gulf states are already beginning to provide the opposition with arms and the funding to purchase them, sources in the region tell CNN.
