Fighting Al Qaeda by SupportingAl Qaeda in Syria: The ObamaAdministration is a “StateSponsor of Terrorism”
ByProf Michel ChossudovskyGlobal Research, June 19, 2013Url of this article:http://www.globalresearch.ca/fighting-al-qaeda-by-supporting-al-qaeda-in-syria-the-obama-administration-is-a-state-sponsor-of-terrorism/5339728 A major transition in US counter-terrorism doctrine is unfolding.While Barack Obama, following in the footsteps of George W. Bush,remains firmly committed to waging a “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT),his administration is now
openly supporting selected rebel units in Syriawhich are part of the Al Qaeda network.
Known and documented, Al Qaeda is a creation of the CIA, which hascovertly supported the “Islamic Terror Network” since the heyday of theSoviet Afghan war.While Al Qaeda is a US sponsored “intelligence asset”, a “New Normal” hasbeen established. An
Al Qaeda affiliated organization, namely Syria’s Al Nusrah, is beingsupported “overtly” by the US President, rather than “covertly” by theCIA.
 
The support of Al Nusrah, an affiliate of al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), is no longer channeled in secrecy as part of a CIA-MI6 covert operation, it is now beingsupported –in a semi-official fashion– as part of a US foreign policyagenda. The latter is also part of America’s diplomatic discourse,implemented in consultation with Britain, Canada, Germany and France. Although Al Nusrah was not mentioned explicitly, “support to the Syrianrebels” was the main topic of debate at the June 2013 G-8 meetings inNorthern Ireland.While intelligence covert ops continue to perform an important role,Washington’s support to Al Qaeda in Syria is now “out in the open”, withinthe public domain. It is no longer part of a secret undertaking. It is part of the mainstay of US foreign policy, carried out under the helm of Secretaryof State John Kerry.“Support to the rebels” is also debated in the US Congress. It is the objectof a bill which has already been adopted by the Senate Foreign RelationsCommittee. Senator Corker who co-sponsoredthe bill stated that:“The future for Syria is uncertain, but the U.S.has a vested interest in trying
 
Ironically, the pro-Israeli lobby was also actively involved in lobbying infavor of aid to jihadist rebels.Israel has supported Al Nusrah militarily in areas adjacent to the occupiedterritories of the Golan Heights.Senator Rand Paul from Kentucky (left) voted against the bill, warning:
“You will be funding today the allies of al Qaeda”
(quoted by RT)
Al Qaeda, Osama and “The Blowback”
Everybody knows that Al Qaeda is now directly supported by the USgovernment.The implications are far-reaching. Obama’s decision not only underminesthe legitimacy of the “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT), it also casts doubton the “blowback” thesis.Moreover, it begs the embarrassing question:
Why is the US presidentsupporting Al Nusrah, which is on the US State Department list of terrorist organizations?
