Leith Fadel, editor-in-chief of Al Masdar News, is reporting that "moderate" rebels (funded and armed by the United States and its Arab client states) are now fighting alongside ISIS in an attempt to push the Syrian army out of Southeastern Aleppo.

Your tax dollars hard at work:



[T]he Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) is attacking the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in southeastern Aleppo; however, they are not alone, thanks in large part to the joint effort from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Jund Al-Aqsa (Syrian Al-Qaeda group).

ISIS and the Islamist rebels share control over the small village of Rasm Al-Nafal, along with 2 other points on the Khanasser-Aleppo Road that they captured in a simultaneous assault on the National Defense Forces (NDF) last night.

Both the Islamist rebels and ISIS announced that they control Rasm Al-Nafal and they have yet to attack one another; instead, they are assaulting the Syrian Armed Forces, who just sent fresh reinforcements to this front in order to recapture the points they lost along this road.

And just to remind our readers, the Free Syrian Army is openly supported by the United States:

Some of the most powerful FSA groups have received military support from the United States. These groups have been regularly targeted in the Russian aerial campaign that got underway in support of Assad on Sept. 30, and have reiterated denials of receiving any help from Moscow.

Are we going to continue to pretend that NATO isn't funding terrorism in Syria?
