On Dec. 10, Jihad Watch posted a new video submitted by anonymous Syrian rebels showing a child being tasked with beheading a captured prisoner. These rebels, which were covertly funded by NATO and the CIA earlier this year, and are in current negotiations with France and Britain to continue funding their struggle to overthrow Bashar al-Assad, contain many elements that are on U.S. and Western Islamic terror watch lists.

Large sums of cash have been delivered by French government proxies across the Turkish border to rebel commanders in the past month, diplomatic sources have confirmed. The money has been used to buy weapons inside Syria and to fund armed operations against loyalist forces. – Guardian
