It wasn’t too long ago that Russian President Vladimir Putin stopped the world from starting World War III over Syria.
President Obama and Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham were rattling swords to take down the legitimate government of Syria. It turned out that Saudi Arabia, the homeland of the people who planned and committed the Sept. 11 U.S. terrorist attack, wants the Syrian government deposed so it can run a new pipeline. Now newly appointed Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is worried about American al-Qaida sympathizers aiding the so-called “extremists” trying to take out Syrian President Assad.
When Obama was threatening to bomb Syria without the approval of Congress, the Syrians rioting were called liberators. Now Johnson is calling them terrorists. Being that we have now admitted to arming and funding Syrian al-Qaida elements, what changed them from patriots to the evil terrorists Jeh Johnson now worries about? Or is this just more of Obama’s convoluted logic?
We should be happy that extremist Muslims are going to Syria to overthrow Assad. The question is: Will we let them return to America? It will not be a security issue if we don’t let them back in.
