Part of a long newly released official Jabhat Al-Nusra video in Syria.
The US Department of State says, albeit belatedly and with obvious
reluctance, that the group is a front for Al-Qaeda. The group is a part
of the the loose collection of militias, terrorists, special ops and
foreign mercenaries known as the 'Free Syrian Army', which lacks a
command structure. Jabhat Al-Nusra has been responsible for some of the
most brutal suicide bombings massacring civilians randomly in
The originally description is mostly false. I can find no evidence that the Jabhat Al-Nusra group has been added to the list of foreign terrorist organizations recognized by the US Dept. of State, though there is no doubt that they are a terrorist organization. There is some doubt as to whether they are really a separate group or simply a name used by the Iraqi Al-Qaeda affiliate in their Syrian operations. But more importantly, the claim that the "...US Department of State says, albeit belatedly and with obvious reluctance..." is obviously false.
On the other hand, the Assad government is totally immersed in terrorism. Of the 51 named groups on the State dept's list of terrorist orginizations at least 9 of them receive support from the Assad regime, in many cases substantial support. In addition, numerous individuals on the terrorist designations list have at one time or another received support from the Assad government.
The Assad regime is a supporter of terrorism.
