Comment: Aiding and abetting terrorists

(See in situ)


Aiding and abetting terrorists

This is key:
Under US law 18 USC § 2339,
"Whoever knowingly provides material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization, or attempts or conspires to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both, and, if the death of any person results, shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life."

Therefore, anyone in the U.S. government who supplies arms to Syrian rebels or supports them militarily with missile strikes, commits the crime of aiding and abetting U.S. designated terrorist organizations al-Nusra Front and al-Qaeda.

Would be great to see Obama, Kerry, McCain and Graham in the same cell block.
