Terror Ties: US Supports Syrian Rebels Despite 'Blacklisted' Group

Washington's decision to brand a leading rebel group in Syria as a terrorist organisation, sparks a chorus of outrage among others who enjoy America's overwhelming support. The key rebel coalition, recognized by the US as the sole representative of the Syrian people, has thrown its weight behind the Al-Qaeda-linked Al-Nusra front. Jacob Hornberger, founder and President of The Future of Freedom Foundation, says the US is deliberately demonizing the Syrian government.

Plus, following on from the last comment in the clip: if the new regime turns out to be hostile, this is no problem for the US because it allows them to maintain their vast military - so that at some point in the future they can completely flatten the target country. The defense contractors, with their close ties to US politicians, can make a lot of money from such circumstances.
