CIA cuts off salaries to 8,000 Syrian mercenaries

With so much attention directed at the Congressional report on CIA torture, many people will have missed the important story about complaints this week made by US employed thugs in Syria who are outraged that the CIA has suddenly stopped paying their salaries and suspended arms deliveries to them.

Naturally, Empire media outlets portray these thugs as being part of the "moderate opposition," but have nevertheless let slip the fact that with their CIA stipend of $150 a month being cut off, already "as many as 800 to 1,000 fighters from US-vetted rebel groups already have joined Nusra."

This fact, along with further claims that the 8,000 affected thugs will end up joining al- Nusra Front or ISIL in order "to feed their families" speaks volumes about just how moderate they are and about what the true underlying motives of many ISIL and al-Nusra thugs.

According to a report by McClatchy DC, (a brand operated by the publicly traded McClatchy Company newspaper and media group) 8,000 of the estimated 10,000 fighters in Syria’s Idlib and Hama provinces are affected by the cut off in funding, adding that "Commanders said CIA operatives told them the cutoff was the US response to the Nusra gains, which have included the seizure of US-supplied weapons from moderate rebel forces in recent weeks."

“In November we received all kinds of support including salaries. This month support stopped completely,” said Col. Fares Bayyoush, leader of the Fursan al Haqq Brigade in Kafr Nabel, a town about 20 miles south of the city of Idlib. It’s a big mistake to cut off the aid,” said Razan Shalab Alsham, the field director for the Syria Emergency Task Force, which coordinates relations between the Free Syrian Army umbrella group and US officials. “You are telling them to join the extremists,” she said.

All of this supports what many of us having long been saying, namely that the various banners around which these thugs have rallied are merely banners of convenience, with the thugs themselves quite happy to move from one to the other without hesitation.

Apparently it is entirely lost on all of them that like those who have taken up arms under the ISIL and al-Nusra banners of convenience, that these Crusaders for the Empire already are criminal thugs whether they migrate to al-Nusra or not.
