    In a diplomatic shift, President Obama said today his administration now formally recognizes the newly-formed, leading coalition of Syrian rebels who are fighting to topple Syria's embattled President Bashar Assad.

    "We've made a decision that the Syrian Opposition Coalition is now inclusive enough, is reflective and representative enough of the Syrian population that we consider them the legitimate representative of the Syrian people in opposition to the Assad regime," Obama said.


    A new petition posted on the ‘We The People’ section of the WhiteHouse.gov website demands that the Obama administration cease all funding and support for terrorists and extremist rebels in Syria, as news emerges of 29 different Syrian rebel groups pledging allegiance to the Al-Qaeda affiliated Nusra Front, a group responsible for killing U.S. troops in Iraq and one that is currently the primary fighting force in the NATO-backed bid to topple President Bashar Al-Assad.

    He is also sending F-16's to the Dictator Morsi, and the muslim brotherhood in egypt.


    Let’s say a would-be Egyptian dictator tosses the head of the military, supports a terrorist assault on Israel, and threatens to send tanks into the streets to fight any opposition. Let’s also say you’re the President of the United States. Would you: (a) threaten to cut off aid; (b) actually cut off aid; (c) send 20 F-16s to Egypt?

    If you’re Barack Obama, your clear answer is C. Beginning January 22, the first portions of America’s $1 billion foreign aid grant to Egypt hits the ground in Cairo – four F-16 jets. The last time the United States greenlit aid to Egypt was 2010, when deposed authoritarian Hosni Mubarak was in power. House Committee on Foreign Affairs Chair Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) said, “The Obama administration wants to simply throw money at an Egyptian government that the president cannot even clearly state is an ally of the United States.

    How nice are these jets? According to Lockheed Martin, they’re the top of the line. “We remain committed to providing our customer with a proven, advanced 4th Generation multirole fighter,” bragged John Larson, vice president of Lockheed Martin’s F-16 program.

    The New York Times has reported that American-provided weapons ended up in the hands of terrorists in Libya before the Benghazi attack. Clearly, we haven’t learned our lesson.

    I want an F16. If I wear a diaper on my head and hump a goat can I get a free F16 too?

    You'll have to get yourself an Arab name first. Then the maintainance is a killer. Did you hear about the pilot that scraped the tail of an F-22 on landing the other day? I think they said that cost $1.6 million to fix. I guess they didn't have any bondo and a can of spay paint.

    Speaking of F-16's to Egypt. Morsi has already replaced all the top generals. Things are going down hill fast there. It's looking like another Iran forming.

    Good job, Obama.
