Obama keeps saying he might still arm Syria's 'moderate' anti Assad forces. Give us all a break, everyone - Qatar, Saudi, Kuwait, NATO, especially Turkey have been arming ALL the fighters in Syria for three years. It is a Balkanisation project to smash Syria, and they all want a piece of the pie, Gulf oil pipes could be laid to Turkey and onto Europe, Israel could take the full Golan Heights with no local southern Syrian Druze opposition, the Shia axis from Iran to South Lebanon could be cut and the regional Sunni position strengthened. It's a perfect storm of realpolitik and aligned interests all at the cost of Syrian lives. Viva Assad!

It doesn't take much imagination to guess what is behind the huge Bengahzi cover-up. We know it was about transferring SAMs to Syrian rebels and that they have been 'stolen'. We know that Morsi had his finger-prints on the raid and we know that Qatar backs the Muslim Brotherhood.

Was it in-fighting, was it some not wanting the arms to go via Turkey or to go to the 'wrong' group of rebels?

The question is to what extent Qatar money is implicated in the Administration's policy-making. We've certainly never known Hillary to knock back a monetary offer and we know that Obama is in ideological sympathy with the Muslim Brotherhood, as he has made perfectly clear by appointing their minions to positions of influence plus the Attorney General is CAIR's cur!

And where does all the money come from to build the hundreds of mosques here?
