CONFIRMED: US Shipping Weapons to Syria - Al Nusra's "Mystery" Sponsors Revealed

While US President Barack Obama and the Western media lied in concert to the world regarding America's role in supporting terrorists operating in Syria, it is now revealed that the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has been shipping weapons to Syria via NATO-member Turkey and Jordan since at least early 2012. The New York Times in their article titled, "Arms Airlift to Syria Rebels Expands, With C.I.A. Aid," admits that: 
With help from the C.I.A., Arab governments and Turkey have sharply increased their military aid to Syria’s opposition fighters in recent months, expanding a secret airlift of arms and equipment for the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad, according to air traffic data, interviews with officials in several countries and the accounts of rebel commanders.

The airlift, which began on a small scale in early 2012 and continued intermittently through last fall, expanded into a steady and much heavier flow late last year, the data shows. It has grown to include more than 160 military cargo flights by Jordanian, Saudi and Qatari military-style cargo planes landing at Esenboga Airport near Ankara, and, to a lesser degree, at other Turkish and Jordanian airports.
The New York Times piece attempts to spin America's role in arming militants in Syria. The Times continues by stating:  
The American government became involved, the former American official said, in part because there was a sense that other states would arm the rebels anyhow. The C.I.A. role in facilitating the shipments, he said, gave the United States a degree of influence over the process, including trying to steer weapons away from Islamist groups and persuading donors to withhold portable antiaircraft missiles that might be used in future terrorist attacks on civilian aircraft.

Hugo Chávez (1954-2013)

The death of the Commander President Hugo Chavez Frias this Tuesday, March 5, causes immense pain and consternation among the Venezuelan people, in all Latin American peoples and legions of fans, he won followers, friends and allies with his inner strength, his charisma, his talent and energy for the Bolivarian Revolution and the cause of national liberation and social development of the people.

Hugo Chávez goes down in history as one of the greatest figures ever born on Latin American soil. Alongside Fidel Castro, Commander of the Cuban Revolution, he was the main leader of the anti-imperialist current times, Keeper of confidence of the peoples of "Our America," as José Martí would say.

He was effectively a giant. Chavez led a major political movement, which, as new, is still in the bud. With the strength of his ideas and his transformative edifying example of revolutionary leader and statesman, this movement tends to consolidate and perpetuate as the major trend of our time. The political movement directed by and starring Chavez is the essence of anti-imperialism, which is the very spirit of our time, the brand of tenacious resistance of the peoples against the international neocolonialist offensive  potentates under the aegis of U.S. imperialism.

Another indelible imprint of his thought and work is popular democracy, participatory, permanent mobilization of the people, a weapon of victory in any battle against the enemies that appear to be more powerful.
