A shocking video has emerged which shows Obama administration-backed Syrian rebels singing songs in praise of Osama Bin Laden while celebrating the “sweet memory” of the attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11.
The clip shows FSA members and their supporters in the city of Idlib chanting anti-American songs at a rally while waving flags and banners.
“They (Twin Towers) have gone with the blink of an eye, oh how sweet is the memory,” the crowd sings in Arabic.
“Our leader Osama Bin Laden, America’s worst nightmare,” the song continues as the crowd cheers, “If they call me a terrorist I will consider it an honor, our terror is blessed, a divine call, Allah is our goal we strive to reach him.”
The footage is just the latest illustration of how the Obama administration, which has supported Syrian rebels with over $200 million dollars in aid while the CIA has helped other gulf states oversee weapons transfers, is backing terrorists who openly espouse extremist anti-American ideologies.
Back in August, Obama signed a “secret order” authorizing U.S. support for the rebels.
Last month, 29 different Syrian opposition groups pledged their allegiance to Al Nusra, an Al-Qaeda-affiliated group which, as the New York Times reported, “killed numerous American troops in Iraq.”
The White House has supported the FSA militants in their bid to overthrow President Bashar Al-Assad despite the fact that Syrian rebels have been responsible for a plethora of atrocities, from terrorist attacks and massacres, to forcing people to become suicide bombers, to attacks on Christian churches and making children carry out grisly beheadings of unarmed prisoners.
A Syrian rebel recently quoted by McClatchy Newspapers was overheard to remark, “When we finish with Assad, we will fight the U.S.!” Other militants have appeared in You Tube videos speaking of their desire to see the Al-Qaeda flag fly over the White House and impose Sharia law once the rebels are victorious across the region.
Rebels have also been caught on camera burning U.S. flags and chanting anti-American slogans. Last month, FSA fighters were caught on camera attempting to shoot down commercial airliners with anti-aircraft weapons.
A petition launched earlier this month asks the White House to cease all funding and support for Syrian rebels, noting that, “Funding terrorists is a crime under the National Defense Authorization Act.”
In related news, the brother of the leader of Al-Qaeda, Mohamed al-Zawahiri, has been captured by government forces in Syria, offering further proof that the terrorist group is heavily involved in the bid to topple President Bashar Al-Assad.
