New Video Shows Obama-Backed Syrian Rebels Burning U.S. Flag

A second video has emerged which shows rebels in Syria, backed by the Obama administration to the tune of millions in taxpayer dollars, burning a U.S. flag as they chant anti-American slogans.
The footage, which follows an earlier video depicting opposition demonstrators in Aleppo burning a U.S. flag, shows Syrian rebels and activists in the city of Homs demonstrating against the anti-Muslim film that has provoked outrage across the Middle East.

“America produced a derogatory film,” reads one of the banners as the crowd chants “Muhammad is our leader!”

The shot then pans to a group of men who set an American flag on fire as the crowd chants “Allahu Akbar”. An Israeli flag is also set on fire as well as a Russian flag.

The video again serves to illustrate the disconnect between the Obama administration’s decision to send millions in taxpayer money to help extremists who hate America in their bid to overthrow President Bashar Al-Assad.

The White House has signed off on over $76 million dollars in “humanitarian aid” that has gone directly to Syrian opposition forces. In addition, Obama recently rubber stamped a separate deal to use taxpayer money to support Syrian rebels with “non-lethal aid”. The New York Times admits that the CIA is helping steer heavy weaponry to the rebels on the Turkish border paid for by Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
