Syria’s most powerful rebel group has formally pledged allegiance to al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri, according to recording posted online today.

The al-Nusra group, the strongest extremist movement in Syria, issued a statement of support for the terror network.

Abu Mohammad al-Golani, leader of the Syrian group, said: ‘The sons of Nusra Front renew their pledge (of allegiance) to the Sheikh of Jihad Ayman al-Zawahri and declare obedience.’

Al-Qaida’s branch in Iraq and the most powerful rebel group in Syria have now officially joined ranks against President Bashar Assad to forge a potentially formidable militant force in the Middle East.

  1. I didn’t have much use for LBJ when he was alive and less now, but he was a patriot and was the man who said that a certain dictator was a SOB but his was our SOB. He knew that there are times when the choice is a bad guy or and even worse guy, we seem to be picking the even worse guys on a regular basis.
