“Al Qaeda with A Western Face Lift”: ‘Humanitarian’ NGOs Supporting Terrorists in Syria

Speaking to Mnar Muhawesh on ‘Behind the Headline,’ investigative journalist Vanessa Beeley pulls back the curtain on the ‘humanitarian’ NGOs that have become media darlings as first responders in war torn Syria.

 So who are the NGOs at the forefront of the propaganda train selling a humanitarian war in Syria to the American public?

From Avaaz, White Helmets, Purpose and others who strategically align their efforts in al-Qaeda held areas in Syria — these NGOs claim to be ‘fiercely independent.’ Yet, a deeper dive into their history and funding exposes murky ties to USAID, British mercenaries and Al-Qaeda’s al-Nusra front.

Are these NGO’s just Al-Qaeda with a Western face lift?

Given the ongoing propaganda train that’s pushing for U.S. intervention in Syria on the basis of ‘humanitarianism’ by these NGOs, it’s become increasingly difficult to believe that Obama’s recent announcement of adding 250 boots on the ground will be the limit to U.S. involvement there.

In October, USA Today listed “16 times President Obama said there would be no boots on the ground in Syria.” Flash-forward to April: What went from no boots on the ground, to 50 boots on the ground, suddenly became 250 boots on the ground.

While the State Department has pointed out that it specifically does not dispute the fact that “we have troops on the ground, and they’re wearing boots,” these soldiers don’t qualify as “boots on the ground” in the administration’s calculus.
