Hillary Clinton admits US material support of al-Qaeda affiliates in Syria

Story here. So, al-Qaeda is an alliance of Islamists who seek the imposition of Sharia throughout the Middle East (to start), and eventually, the world. Sharia requires, among other things, for women to be subservient to men in a multitude of ways, in particular to be subservient to their fathers first, then after marriage, to their husbands. They are expected and required to remain veiled in public and behave in an "Islamic fashion befitting a female," or words to that effect. Yet Hillary Clinton, our Secretary of State and world-famous feminist, admits publicly that the US has been supporting al-Qaeda affiliates in Syria-- the same goons that fought against and killed U.S. troops in Iraq, no less. My goodness, politics sure does make for strange bedfellows. Wonder how her Secretary-of-Stateness reconciles this with her long-held feminist ideology? Wonder how her boss reconciles it? We'll probably never know. Excerpt:

'Hillary Clinton has admitted that Al-Qaeda is supporting the Syrian rebels, who are backed by the Obama administration with $200 million dollars in aid. According to McClatchy Newspapers one of these groups, Al Nusra Front, an Al-Qaeda affiliate, is now conducting “the heaviest frontline fighting” in Syria and has been responsible for terrorist attacks. Impartial observers such as Dr. Jacques Beres say the majority of rebels in Syria are foreign extremists whose goal is to impose Sharia law. These rebels have also been filmed burning U.S. flags and chanting anti-American slogans. Funding terrorists is a crime under the National Defense Authorization Act. Such activity has had disastrous consequences in the past, such as 9/11. We demand all support direct or indirect to cease immediately.

Petitions posted on the WhiteHouse.gov website have to obtain a minimum of 25,000 signatures to mandate an official White House response. Only American citizens who register an account are allowed to sign.

The petition is timely given that 29 different Syrian opposition groups this week pledged their allegiance to Al Nusra, an Al-Qaeda-affiliated group which, as the New York Times reported on Saturday, “killed numerous American troops in Iraq,” dismissing the notion that Al Nusra is merely is one “bad apple” amongst the rebels. In reality, the United States is backing an uprising that has placed the imposition of Sharia law and the ultimate destruction of the United States at the core of its long term agenda once Assad is deposed.

In continuing to fund an uprising that is being led and executed by known terrorists while being supported by their rebel allies, the United States is breaking its own law, the National Defense Authorization Act, which specifically criminalizes support for any “associated forces” of terrorists.'
