“I did not transport weapons, brother!”

Video has emerged of US backed Syrian rebels beheading two Bashar Assad loyalists. Media outlets are reporting that the men were Christians who were executed for their religious beliefs although the names of the condemned have yet to emerge.

In the video, a man is heard saying the victims were convicted of transporting weapons for the regular army but the man loudly denies it before being killed. Local media reports that the militia responsible for the executions may have been Jabhat al Nusra, the Al Qaeda backed radical Islamist group.

American citizens devoted to constitutionally limited government have expressed outrage at US government officials sending arms to terrorist linked Syrian rebels. Despite public opinion running at 70% in opposition to arming the rebels, US Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham & Marco Rubio have declared their intent to commit the nation to arming Al Qaeda forces. Senator Rubio declared, “If I were in charge, we would have armed the Syrian rebels much sooner.”
