How much longer can the Obama administration hide its support for violent jihadists?

A gruesome YouTube video shows a member of the US-backed Free Syrian Army beheading a civilian in yet another example of how the west is supporting an uprising led by violent jihadist extremists.

WARNING: EXTREMELY GRAPHIC VIDEO. VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED. We expect this video to be removed from YouTube shortly.

The clip, which should not be watched by those of a nervous disposition, shows a masked man hacking away at a prisoner’s head with a machete before holding the severed head up in the air as those around him shout in celebration.

This is by no means the first time FSA militants have been caught on camera beheading civilians. Back in December we featured a video showing Syrian rebels forcing a child to behead a bound prisoner.

Later that same month, the Australian reported how rebels beheaded a young Christian man by the name of Andrei Arbashe because he complained about how the rebels were acting like bandits. After cutting him up into pieces, FSA fighters fed Arbashe to the dogs. The report noted that the incident underscored how, “rebels are committing atrocities against innocent civilians.”

Another video which emerged last month shows Syrian rebels chanting “Allahu Akbar” before cutting off the head of a civilian and dumping him in a hole in the ground.

These same insurgents have openly espoused their hatred for America as they ransack Christian churchesburn US flags, chant anti-American slogans and sing the praises of Osama Bin Laden while glorifying the 9/11 attacks.

Multiple reports now confirm that the individuals responsible for these beheadings, many of them part of the Al-Qaeda group Jabhat al-Nusra which killed US troops in Iraq, are leading western-backed rebel forces in Syria. After the organization was declared a terrorist group by the US State Department, 29 different US-backed Syrian opposition groups pledged their allegiance to al-Nusra.

Given the series of bloodthirsty acts of terror committed by Syrian rebels, it’s little surprise that the evidence clearly suggests this week’s chemical weapons attack in Aleppo was launched by FSA militants.

The Obama administration’s transparently disingenuous attempt to initially deny the attack even took place and then spin a yarn that it was likely to have been carried out by the Syrian Army (when 16 of the victims were Syrian soldiers according to the impartial Syrian Observatory for Human Rights), again emphasizes how a fake narrative is being manufactured in an effort to hide the fact that western powers – just as they did in Libya – are supporting and empowering terrorists who have brazenly stated their goal to be the imposition of arcane Sharia law across the region.

The Obama administration has now sent almost half a billion dollars to Syrian rebels (many of whom aren’t even Syrian) – $500 million dollars to militants who have publicly embraced the group responsible for the kind of gruesome beheadings depicted in the video above.

Given the fact that the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi was carried out by some of the very same terrorists the administration armed in the overthrow of Colonel Gaddafi, for how much longer can Obama hide the fact that the US is once again throwing its weight behind bloodthirsty jihadists who hate the United States, hate the ideals of justice and freedom, and who are willing to commit the most savage acts of barbarity in pursuit of their extremist doctrine?
