Obama, with all the heft of the United States behind him, stood by helplessly and haplessly as Syria drifted in a civil war of almost unspeakable savagery. Only then, when it became beast versus beast, did Obama commit America to one side in the battle: America is now backing al Qaeda fighters in Syria. That means that our tax dollars and weapons are going to people who behead priests, rape women, and murder children.
Just today, yet another video emerged showing the type of people Obama has committed us to help. The video shows Obama-supported militants presiding over the execution of two very young-looking teenage boys whom the militants accuse of supporting the Assad regime. The execution took place in northern Syria. The executioners were an al-Qaeda affiliated group that calls itself the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The murdered boys were from Nubul and Zahra, in the Shiite-majority region of Aleppo.

If you don’t have the stomach to watch this carnage, here’s what you would see:
A masked man forces two blindfolded teenage boys to kneel on the floor. According to Arabic-language translators, the man then reads a statement accusing the boys of being Assad-regime gunmen. He ends by announcing that “It is our duty to execute them.”

The man then walks away as a crowd screams “Allahu Akbar!” while the two boys are shot to death. If the Nazis had video cameras, precisely the same footage would have emerged from all over Europe.
