An al-Qaeda affiliated group fighting alongside the "Free Syrian Army" (FSA) and based in the Jabal Turkmen mountains in Northern Syria is shown in this video footage. Its Jihadi members are equipped with uniform American M16 type rifles that come with identical telescopic sights.
The fact that so many of them have acquired the same model denotes the impossibility of the notion that they were acquired from residual supplies in the Middle East. It wouldn't have been possible for a small group to attain such arms in the quantities visible on the black market. Thus, there is no doubt that the Islamists depicted in the video, which was posted to al-Qaeda forums, have most likely acquired their rifles from an external power, either the United States or one of its regional allies/proxies.
This fact belies the hypocrisy of the so-called 'war on terror' in which the United States pledges to fight al-Qaeda while simultaneously provides the terrorist organization with weapons and financial support upon which it relies.
