Justin Raimondo: Obama’s Contras: The Syrian ‘Rebels’

by Justin Raimondo, September 16, 2013

Anyone who thinks the US regime change operation in Syria is finished hasn’t been keeping up with the news.

Yes, the President and his interventionist advisors – notably Secretary of State John Kerry and US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power – have been rebuked by Congress and the American people: there will be no "shock and awe" over Damascus any time soon. The US military, for its part, has also signaled its displeasure at being asked to fight yet another futile Middle East war. Yet that hardly means the War Party has given up: far from it.

US-Saudi covert action in the Syrian civil war picked up just as Obama balked in the face of public outrage and just before the announcement that an agreement had been reached to dismantle Bashar al-Assad’s chemical weapons arsenal. On September 11, the Washington Post reported:

"The CIA has begun delivering weapons to rebels in Syria, ending months of delay in lethal aid that had been promised by the Obama administration, according to U.S. officials and Syrian figures. The shipments began streaming into the country over the past two weeks, along with separate deliveries by the State Department of vehicles and other gear – a flow of material that marks a major escalation of the US role in Syria’s civil war."

I can no longer retweet ANYTHING about McCain or Graham that comes up on my home page. The cry babies bitched about it and now they are regulating these. Poor sportsmanship in the least!

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Interesting....

You'd be my choice in the foxhole

I emailed a reply and am working on a statement to that effect to post to the recall thread my friend.
