Obama Deepens U.S. Support for Syrian Rebels with Secret Order

 Even as the United Nations and human rights groups warn that the Western-backed jihadist rebels are committing war crimes and slaughtering Christians in Syria, reports indicate that President Obama has signed a secret order purporting to authorize even more “covert” U.S. government support to the armed opposition. Multiple establishment press outlets reported the latest development, citing official sources indicating that the administration likely released the news deliberately.

Even as the United Nations and human rights groups warn that the Western-backed jihadist rebels are committing war crimes and slaughtering Christians in Syria, reports indicate that President Obama has signed a secret order purporting to authorize even more “covert” U.S. government support to the armed opposition. Multiple establishment press outlets reported the latest development citing official sources, indicating that the administration likely released the news for a purpose.

According to media reports, Obama’s latest secret “intelligence” order claims to grant the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and other U.S. government agencies even broader latitude in supporting the “revolutionaries.” But Western governments, brutal Sunni-Arab dictatorships, an assortment of terror groups including al-Qaeda, and other powerful interests have all been backing the uprising since long before violence even broke out last year.

More recently, investigations into the leadership of the Syrian National Council (SNC), the main “opposition” umbrella group, showed that it has deep ties to the secretive Bilderberg group, the Council on Foreign Relations, Goldman Sachs, billionaire financier George Soros, and other key establishment figures. The radical big government-promoting Islamist group known as the Muslim Brotherhood is also a key player within the SNC.

The apparent goal of Obama’s latest unconstitutional so-called “finding” claiming to approve deepening American involvement in the war, as with the administration’s previous secret order backing the al-Qaeda-linked rebels fighting Gadhafi, is the acceleration of the “regime change” mission. And as in Libya, analysts say innocent civilians will pay the price for the establishment’s latest bloodbath in its effort to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al Assad.
