Editor’s note: The Al Qaeda forces defeated in the first major outing for the new Iraqi army are, in actuality, controlled by the individuals that Senator John McCain met with this week. One might ask why an American legislator, a senior member of the Senate Armed Forces Committee, would meet with terrorist groups he himself has cited as responsible for attacks on the United States and the deaths of thousands of American civilians and service men and women?
From an article by Dr. Kevin Barrett:
“According to unconfirmed reports, former Republican presidential candidate and current Senator John McCain has joined al-Qaeda. Informed sources report that McCain slipped across the Syrian border last night and joined the al-Nusra front, an Israeli-supported al-Qaeda affiliate that is waging war against Syria.”What reasons would McCain have for telling enemies of the United States that he will arrange for military aid, aid we know will be used, not just to attack the government in Damascus, but to exterminate the Christian population of Syria as well?
This same group, the Chechen Al Qaeda affiliate, trained and supplied by the CIA, has not only kidnapped two Christian bishops but is using chemical weapons in Syria, confirmed by multiple sources and full documentation has been submitted to the United Nations.
Iraqi security forces have arrested a senior militant commander of the al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq network in the country’s western al-Anbar Province, officials say.
This arrest comes after Iraqi troops launched a large-scale operation in the country’s western desert on May 25 in an effort to clear the area of al-Qaeda militants.
