US Russia to Designate al-Nusra Front a Terrorist Group

al-Nusra Front is a branch of the Syrian opposition with its roots in the Iraqi insurgent group Ansar al-Sunnah.

SANA: Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov on Thursday said that the US inclusion of Jabhat al-Nusra group in its international terrorist groups list proves Washington's admission of the terrorist threats against Syria.

Gatilov added on his Twitter account that the inclusion of Jabhat al-Nusra in the US international terrorism list constitutes an admission of the danger of activating terrorist activity in Syria.

Well lets not get in any hurry. I mean we wouldn't want tall those arms we shipped to al-Nusra from Libya to go to waste.

Obama is clearly, way over his foreign policy head. But Osama is dead.
