U.S. intelligence officials are “concerned about members of Al Qaeda in Iraq moving into Syria to assist the rebellion”, according to the Los Angeles Times (see article: Lawmaker: U.S. sees no sign of Assad's grip loosening in Syria,0,2710043.story )

This comes amid reports that the US will arm, equip and use taxpayer dollars to “pay” the rebellion to help oust President elect Assad from power (See article: U.S. Joins Effort to Equip and Pay Rebels in Syria

NATO Recruits and trains Mujahideen Mercenaries

Mercenaries from Arab countries are operating within highly trained terrorist brigades, financed by Saudi Arabia and Qatar. In this regard, Israeli intelligence sources (August 2011) point to the direct involvement of NATO in the recruitment of jihadist "Muslim Volunteers", in coordination with the Turkish military:

"Also discussed in Brussels and Ankara, our sources report, is a campaign to enlist thousands of Muslim volunteers in Middle East countries and the Muslim world to fight alongside the Syrian rebels. The Turkish army would house these volunteers, train them and secure their passage into Syria. (, Debkafile, August 31, 2011 emphasis added)

While US intelligence officials speculate whether or not Al-Qaeda is in Syria - in Homs, the Al Qaeda Faruq Brigade (which includes mercenaries from Libya and Iraq) have been involved in terrorizing the civilian population. They "have succeeded in expelling most of the Christians in Homs and have seized their homes by force”. "Snipers were stationed in the street ... shooting at people and preventing others from leaving their homes for two months, targeting passers-by and cars and anything that moved in the streets, adding that the terrorists also robbed houses, committed massacres, murders and kidnapping." Adding insult to injury the terrorists are claiming the Syrian police and government are the ones committing the acts?

The shocking video of the twin Suicide bombings in Syria, Damascus recorded by Al Qaida Terrorists in Syria and uploaded on theirweb sites” have been verified.

This is the reason why the Syrian President Bashar el Assad is targeting these criminals and killers...You be the Judge..See “Al-Qaeda also claimed responsibility for two suicide bombings in Damascus” (source: ).

You can even verify this fact by going to the website yourself.

“What more proof do you need that al-Qaeda is operating in Syria”, says Thomas Dunn a counterterrorism expert in Charlotte, N.C.

The facts speak for themselves al-Qaeda is operating inside Syria and the US seems determined to arm and equip our “number one geopolitical foe”, according to the White House
