So who are the Syrian rebels? Who are the Syrian Free Army? John Kerry says the Syrian rebels are moderates and our friends. Others say the Syrian rebels use Sarin gas to frame Assad in order to get the United States to attack him. There is evidence that Syrian rebels have used Sarin gas before. The latest Syrian news is that of a video of Syrian rebels executing soldiers fighting for Bashar al-Assad. Tortured, humiliated, then shot in the head. Even after that, their bodies were further mutilated. Kerry told members of the Senate and House during testimony this week to read reports about the Syrian rebels. But we now learn that these reports were written by somebody being paid as a consultant for the rebels to help them gain aid from Washington. Nice work if you can find it in the Obama economy!

The best guess so far is that of the estimated 70,000 to 100,000 Syrian rebels fighting against Bashar al-Assad, there are about 1,000 different groups. Each with their own agenda. That those rebels considered as ′moderates′ by the Obama administration consist of somewhere between 50% to 80% of the overall force. Not exactly a comforting spread of numbers.

Most often cited by Obama and other dummies, like the Manchurian Senator from Arizona, John McCain, are the Free Syrian Army and their political wing of the Syrian Emergency Council. Who are these guys? Most of them are former ministers and military officers from Assad′s government. So imagine that Obama, Kerry and McCain were around back in World War Two and claiming that Herman Goering, Josef Goebbels and Heinrich Himmler were moderates. They′re not as bad as Adolph Hitler, so we can work with them. Yeah, RIGHT! Maybe they can get away with that for everyone′s favorite Nazi, Albert Speer. After all, Speer just wanted civilization to be molded in order to dwell within his grotesque vision of architecture. That′s not too much to ask for, is it? Plus Speer could be called an ′artiste′, giving him much more leeway with those on the Far-Left.

Seriously, the Obama administration is like the blind leading the blind when it comes to choosing allies in the Middle East. Most of the Syrian rebels are brutal thugs and not much better than Assad. That is who the Syrian rebels are. Not exactly the kind of folks one would compare to the likes of a George Washington. Heck, I doubt if any of them could even qualify to be another Napoleon. More like another Pol Pot or Idi Amin.
