2011 syria protests.svg

Introduction In the mainstream view, al-Qaeda did not play a role in the Syria conflict until Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi dispatched his deputy, Abu Muhammad al-Jolani, to Syria in August 2011 to establish a wing of the group there, called Jabhat al-Nusra, or the Nusra Front.

Boot concludes his article by cowardly suggesting that people who oppose Israel only do so because they harbor a hatred for Jews.  Kyle breaks down Joe Biden’s gaffe at his town hall with Anderson Cooper. Biden said the US was...
