Al-Qaeda Openly Joins Campaign for Regime Change in Syria
September 14, 2012 • 8:30AM

The Obama Administration's campaign for regime-change in Libya was joined with fanfare yesterday, when a video was released in which Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Zawahiri came out calling for Muslims to back the rebels in Syria, and overthrow President Bashar al-Assad.

Zawahiri lied that the U.S. was propping up Assad, but he in fact was just exposing his own status as a puppet of the British global assault on national sovereignty.

The Al-Qaeda leader's call came immediately after his speech on the eve of Sept. 11, in which, according to Bruce Riedel in the Daily Beast, he called for attacks on Americans, especially in Libya. While details of the attack which killed the U.S. Ambassador there are still murky, Riedel and numerous others say that the assault appears to have been the work of armed terrorists, not a mob — and that al-Qaeda is strong in the Benghazi area.
