Al Qaeda groups in Syria want to attack US ?

As I read this headline- the first thought that comes to mind is ‘wow the US just never gives up” on pushing the ‘terror’ meme!
But then it serves them so dam well?
Recall I had mentioned so many months back about that changing narrative? From arab spring to fighting terror
If AQ is in Syria and it want’s to attack the US... does this mean the US with it’s NATO subordinates will just have to intervene?

If AQ is in Syria, why is it the US just keeps sending arms that way?
Clapper is ‘flapping his lips’ for some reason.

Syrian al-Qaeda-linked groups want to attack the United States and are training a growing cadre of fighters from Europe, the Mideast and even the United States, United States intelligence chief James Clapper warned on Wednesday.

Director of National Intelligence Clapper told the Senate Intelligence Committee that groups such as the al-Nusra Front in Syria have inaugurated training camps “to train people to go back to their countries,” the Associated Press quoted him as saying.

He described this as “one of the newest threats emerging in the past year to U.S. security.”

He added: “Al-Nusra Front, to name one .... does have aspirations for attacks on the homeland.”

However, Clapper did not elaborate or offer any evidence of al-Nusra’s desire to attack the U.S.

He said the civil war in Syria has become a “huge magnet” for these groups while sub-Saharan Africa has become a “hothouse” for extremists even as al-Qaeda’s core leadership has been steadily weakened in Pakistan.

America’s intelligence agencies estimated that there were about 26,000 fighters deemed to be “extremists” operating in Syria out of a total opposition force of 75,000 to 110,000 from some 50 countries, Clapper said

He said more established groups, like Yemen’s al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, are still more capable of carrying out attacks against the U.S., but described steep growth in numbers of fighters in Syria.
Biological weapons

He also offered a warning on advances in Syria’s biological weapons program.

Although Syria has agreed to eliminate its large arsenal of chemical weapons, the regime may now have the ability to produce biological weapons on a limited scale, he said.

“We judge that some elements of Syria’s biological warfare program might have advanced beyond the research and development stage and might be capable of limited agent production, based on the duration of its longstanding program,” the Associated Press quoted Clapper as saying in written testimony.

Clapper offered no further details, but it was the first time an official has publicly stated that spy agencies believed Syria had made strides in its biological program.

Neither President Bashar al-Assad’s regime nor the rebel groups appear able to achieve a decisive victory on the battlefield in the next six months, said Clapper, adding that the war would further foment Sunni-Shiite sectarian tensions across the region.

Extremists gaining access to technologies

Meanwhile, another U.S. official warned of extremist rebels getting access to technologies that could be used against Washington.

“Not only are fighters being drawn to Syria, but so are technologies and techniques that pose particular problems to our defenses,” the Associated Press quoted committee chairwoman Dianne Feinstein as saying.

She warned Syria could become “a launching point or way station for terrorists seeking to attack the United States or other nations,” in the annual hearing Wednesday to hear the U.S. intelligence committee’s assessment of worldwide threats.

U.S. intelligence analysts have told the Associated Press that al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri and his lieutenants are too preoccupied by the constant threat of U.S. drone strikes to plot a major attack against the U.S. similar to Sept. 11.

This has pushed Zawahri to empower various “nodes” of his organization to choose their own, often local targets, though he encourages them to focus on the “far enemy” of the U.S. when they can.

U.S. intelligence officials told the Associated Press that Zawahri so far has not called on the Syrian branches to attack U.S. targets, allowing them to focus on the war against Assad.

Meanwhile, Clapper compared Syria to the semi-autonomous tribal belt in northwest Pakistan, which has served as a sanctuary for the Taliban and members of al-Qaeda.

Don't miss the first post of the day- A most excellent interview

American Addict- Gregory Smith and John Rappaport


  1. Hi Pen,
    "Syrian al-Qaeda-linked groups want to attack the United States and are training a growing cadre of fighters from Europe, the Mideast and even the United States, United States intelligence chief James Clapper warned on Wednesday.

    Director of National Intelligence Clapper told the Senate Intelligence Committee that groups such as the al-Nusra Front in Syria have inaugurated training camps “to train people to go back to their countries,” the Associated Press quoted him as saying."

    The aptly named, James Clapper, is quite correct , of course. He just omits to say that al-Nusra is formed, financed and directed by the NSA/CIA on behalf of 'the usual suspects'.

    It is also one of the purposes for Guantanamo - “to train people to go back to their countries”. After suitable brainwashing, of course.

    1. hey james and karin

      I had a bunch of stuff saved on Guantanamo
      and all the drugs they were giving them
      (for one of those posts I never have enough time for..sigh)
      their 'techniques' and they were straight out of making a manchurian candied date 101

  2. @james

    Your're absolutely right abt Gitmo ( and a number of other such larger prisons elsewhere) How can even good meaning people in the middle east not have anger at the US ? It's impossible and ridiculous to thing otherwise.

    Fortunately alot of them realize it's our gov and the zionist element behind it and not the people, even though they wish like heck the people would do something !

    Dieudonne's youtube channel w/ new video up today. I don't even understand French and I still think he's funny. The faces he makes :) quenelle In part of it he is talking about his way tooooo many court cases.

  3. Penny,
    quenelle continues. Noor at Snippets/Snappets has BELGIAN LAWMAKER: ZIONISTS BANKROLLED THE HOLOCAUST
    From Jerusalem Post 1-30-14 He made a speech a good while back very anti-banksters, don't know if you saw it or not, but it made a big splash for a short time.

    Short article, they are really coming down on Dieudonne financially as it states. I had read he was being hassled alot and they were even getting to is wife :(

    I found Laurant Louis website where he has a video up and I went over to youtube and got the Link there

    Note comments there and also under the Dieudonne' video I posted earlier in the other comment. Link within the description under the Louis video takes one over here ! :)

    whew !
    #quenelle !!
    Second one down on left of that page says :
    3 quenelle in 3 minutes!!
    Bottom on the right column of articles shows a pic on Jan 14 of a whole group of people with him doing quenelle :)

    We have a movement springing up ?? :D

    1. thanks karin
      as for a movement?
      we can hope that the people will become engaged
      and toss the scheming zionist globalists and assorted sycophants to the curb
      reject them wholesale
      and build alternative systems
      cooperate and resist

  4. chuchill and the wahhabis

    1. "...the Wahhabi sect, a form of Mohammedanism which bears, roughly speaking, the same relations to orthodox Islam as the most militant form of Calvinism would have borne to Rome in the fiercest times of the religious wars."

      Wash, rinse, repeat. If it worked before it will work again. The Protestant Reformation was a Jewish scheme to divide & conquer Christendom by the crypto-Jew Calvin and given cover by the Jew hating useful-idiot Luther. The Reformation might well have started as a grass-roots rebellion against a corrupt Roman Church, but if it was ever grass-roots it was (as we see so often now) subverted and taken over. Wahhabism is the same recipe cooked up 500 years later by the same group with Islam as the target.

      Churchill knew the score, his 1920 article Zionism versus Bolshevism makes for interesting reading. Can you imagine any western polititian today writing that? Unfortunately he allowed himself to be bought-off; country mansions are expensive to run.

      An interesting talk by David Irving - Churchill's War

    2. not the jews again! :please avoid jewbashing just because its your favorite makes you look like a one trick you will have the fall of the Roman empire was a jewish trick

    3. thanks for the info freethinker
      I have yet to read through it, but will take some time to do so

      It appears brian didn't take the time to read through it before passing judgement?
      and I am surprised?!
      because brian knows people conspire
      including the tribe.

    4. freethinker

      churchill's opening statement

      " but no thoughtful man can doubt the fact that they are beyond all question the most formidable and the most remarkable race which has ever appeared in the world"

      I can doubt it
      If not for the 'bi-bull' would we be under any illusions about the tribe?

      that all said Churchill seems to spell it all out quite plainly

      and isn't this interesting

      "Of course, Palestine is far too small to accommodate more than a fraction of the Jewish race, nor do the majority of national Jews wish to go there. But if, as may well happen, there should be created in our own lifetime by the banks of the Jordan a Jewish State under the protection of the British Crown, which might comprise three or four millions of Jews, an event would have occurred in the history of the world which would, from every point of view, be beneficial, and would be especially in harmony with the truest interests of the British Empire.

      the truest interests of the British Empire?- plunder. oil

      And then this

      "Zionism has already become a factor in the political convulsions of Russia, as a powerful competing influence in Bolshevik circles with the international communistic system.

      Nothing could be more significant than the fury with which Trotsky has attacked the Zionists generally, and Dr. Weissmann in particular. The cruel penetration of his mind leaves him in no doubt that his schemes of a world-wide communistic State under Jewish domination are directly thwarted and hindered by this new ideal, which directs the energies and the hopes of Jews in every land towards a simpler, a truer, and a far more attainable goal

      What was Churchill speaking of ? ;)
      Sounds like globalisation... Why yes it does

  5. I will be back later to respond
    yesterday was a yukky sick day
    sorry :(
    but ty for the comments, I will get caught up

  6. @brian Wow, good find on that article.

    sorry you aren't feeling well and hope you feel better
    When u make it here to the blog go over to Saker's newest post on Dieudonne

    The song is so very beautiful :)

    @Gallier2 Merci' for the translation of the song and Saker's brief post giving the info.
    For some reason when I try to go to the song on youtube, it won't let me and takes me to some strange page ( remember-I'm the puter/net genius--NOT )

    If someone would be so kind to give me the youtube link , IF it has the lyrics.
    Only reason I want link to youtube is to tweet it from there also. Some ppl will go to youtube (gov) but won't go to a blog.

    1. Hi karin
      feeling a bit more human today and much less nauseated
      the bias against blogs comes straight out of the Whitehouse and msm
      demonizing blogs
      when from where I sit many blogs and bloggers are vastly more credible the the warmongering media

  7. Fabrication in BBC Panorama's 'Saving Syria’s Children'
    Correspondence with the BBC over allegations that the Panorama documentary 'Saving Syria's Children' broadcast on 30 September 2013 included staged sequences purporting to show the aftermath of an alleged incendiary bomb attack on an Aleppo school on 26 August 2013

    Syria: ‘Human Rights Watch’, Key Player in the Manufacture of Propaganda for War and Foreign Intervention

    1. ty brian
      I recall the Panorama psyop
      I believe it was freethinker that linked a video here with the comment
      comparing the actors with actors from the walking dead
      it was pretty bad stuff

      As for HRW- yuk
      It has been clear and I have had a number of posts at the blog about the lying scum ngo HRW

  8. "The Empire admits: without Al-Jazeera, they could not have bombed Libya.

    How did Al-Jazeera, once dubbed the 'terror network' by some and whose staff were martyred by US bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan, end up becoming the media war propagandist for yet another Western war against a small state of the Global South, Libya? We will not know the full details for some time; perhaps some wikileaks will help us understand later. But this much is already certain: the station is betraying gross political bias against its pan-Arab and pan-Islamic anti-imperialist constituency, reflected by its discriminatory reporting on the region based on Qatar's interests and its relations and service to the West."

    1. Al Jaz played that same game for the egytian 'revolution'
