    not to over estimate the threat from "al qaeda" at all. Thank you for this comment. The idea that the rebels are all horrible rape-cannibal monsters is pure propaganda. I don't like the US being involved in this but that doesn't mean I want false propaganda spread.

    Here's an interview disputing the false binary being pushed by a lot of the intelligence apparatus. It's a lot more complicated than that and I expect we'll find out later that they've come to this determination in the usual method of connections between people counted as them being al qaeda, even though they aren't.

    I don't trust our intelligence services for shit and I'm not going to change my position on that just because they're saying something that would help stop an intervention I don't want.
