New York Times: Weapons Going to al-Qaeda in Syria

“Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster, according to American officials and Middle Eastern diplomats,” the New York Times reported on Monday.

In other words, the CIA and the fanatical Wahhabists in Saudi Arabia and Qatar are supporting and arming al-Qaeda in much the same way they did in Libya. In order to mute this reality, the Times describes the rebels as “hard-line Islamic jihadists” and repeats the widely debunked fallacy that the United States really wants to support “more secular opposition groups” attacking the government of Syria.

According to Halil Karaveli, Senior Fellow with the Turkey Initiative at the Central Asia-Caucasus Institute & Silk Road Studies Program Joint Center, it makes sense “hard-line Islamic jihadists,” ergo al-Qaeda, are fighting the proxy war in Syria.
