Above is Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "Funding Terrorism" from Sunday. And if you're not getting the point of the comic, please read Niall Green (WSWS):
US President Barack Obama pledged Sunday to deliver “non-lethal” supplies to Western-backed anti-government insurgents in Syria. The announcement came as Kofi Annan, due to head a United Nations mission to Damascus, was in Moscow for talks with the Russian government on the crisis in Syria.
Obama’s announcement was made following talks with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the eve of the nuclear security conference taking place Monday and Tuesday in Seoul, South Korea. Turkey has played host to Syrian opposition forces, including the main opposition bloc, the Syrian National Council (SNC), and its military wing, the Free Syrian Army (FSA). The US president stated that he and Erdogan agreed that foreign assistance to these armed opposition groups would aid the transition to a “legitimate government.”
The SNC and the FSA have been promoted in the West as the official representatives of opposition to the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. However, the leaderships of these organizations have little popular backing inside Syria, where there are a large number of disparate and fractious armed groups, including Sunni Islamist fighters.
The would-be 'liberators' in Syria are said to include al Qaeda in Iraq. That's the point of Isaiah's comic. Barack's giving aid to them. That's why he has them in al Qaeda in Iraq t-shirts and has Barack telling them to change into their red, white and blue "Liberate Syria" t-shirts. And why he's fretting over a Congressional investigation.
Can you believe he's getting away with this as well?
The US is now funding al Qaeda in Iraq and doing so openly. If Bill Clinton was in the White House, you better believe there would be cries for impeachment.
