ICYMI: American-Backed Syrian Rebel Group Just Beheaded A Child

Editor's Note: Headline was tweaked for clarity.  

Obama’s foreign policy has been bad on Syria. We have U.S.-backed militias firing on one another in the country. President Bashar al-Assad remains in power. The Russians are conducting airstrikes of their own—and now we have American supported militias beheading children (via The Clarion Project):

US-backed Syrian rebels, screaming "Allahu Akbar," brutally beheaded a child named Abdullah Issa. The shocking clip shows fighters from Nour-al-din el-Zanki telling the camera, "These are the prisoners from Liwa al-Quds (Jerusalem Brigade – a Palestinian militia group). He [Assad] can't stoop any lower. He sent us children today, are you sending us children?"

America funds Nour-al-din el-Zanki, which fights against the Assad regime.

Liwa al-Quds (The Jerusalem Brigade) is a pro-Assad Palestinian paramilitary group. The rebel group accused the boy of being a spy.

Referring to the prisoner, one jihadi says, "These are the dogs of Assad. These are your people Bashar." Another says, "We shall not leave anyone in Handarat," the Palestinian refugee camp where a battle between regime and rebel forces is currently taking place.

To shouts of "Takbir" and "Allahu Akbar," a fighter from the group saws through the neck of Abdullah Issa. In a grisly scene, he then holds the head aloft and exclaims "Allahu Akbar" several more times.

Oh, and here’s a friendly reminder: During her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton was the number one advocate of training and equipping Syrian rebels to fight Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria. She adamantly believed that her tactics would work and bring stabilization to the region. Clinton was so confident in her plan that she even criticized Barack Obama's failure to "build up a credible fighting force" in 2014.

“The failure to help build up a credible fighting force of the people who were the originators of the protests against Assad—there were Islamists, there were secularists, there was everything in the middle—the failure to do that left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now filled,” Clinton said.
