Someone please explain to me how the support of Syrian rebels is not an obvious case of treason. Are we to assume that Al Qaeda is no longer the enemy in America? CNS News broke a story a few hours ago that features a translated video. In the video young Al Qaeda Syrian Rebels boastfully sing about their victory in bringing down the Twin Towers. These young men may soon be fighting with weapons supplied by our government, if they aren’t already. Tell me one more time how this does not fit the definition of treason:
18 USC § 2381 – Treason
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
CNS News reports:
An al Qaeda video posted online in late May and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) shows masked Muslim teenage boys undergoing military training and indoctrination at an al Qaeda camp inside Syria.
The video shows the teenagers shooting handguns at a large photo of Syrian leader Bashar al-Asad. It also shows them stating that their leader is Abu Bakr al Baghdadi (the head of al Qaeda in Iraq), and then singing joyfully of their desire to overthrow both Asad and his sister Bushra, of the valor of al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri and of al Qaeda’s success in blowing up the World Trade Center towers.
“We destroyed America with a civilian airplane,” the young Syrian rebels sing. “The World Trade Center was turned into rubble. The World Trade Center was turned into rubble.”

I seriously have to assume that since Obama has declared the war on terror to be over that he no longer feels that Al Qaeda is our enemy. Well I assume that this will be his excuse whether he believes it or not.
What people need to understand is that these are blatant acts of treason and no one in the mainstream media seems to be shedding light on this fact.
This is more than simple treason. It is spitting in the face of victims of 9/11. It is the ultimate disrespect to American soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. It absolutely proves that it is never about right and wrong with Obama. It is always a political agenda.
Assad may be a very bad man but we can not aid our enemies in order to help remove him. There are times when The United States of America needs to stay out of the way. This is not our fight. Not when it involves funding Al Qaeda.
You can not intelligently argue that this is not treason. Supporting an organization that has been tied to the death of over 10,000 Americans is definitely treason.
