Via Weasel Zippers,  ICN (Independent Catholic News) reported:

The bodies of 30 Christian civilians, including women and children, killed by Islamist militias, have been found in two separate mass graves, in the city of Sadad. The number of Christian civilians  confirmed dead in this small town halfway between Homs and Damascus has reached 45. Many are injured and several are missing.

The city of Sadad, a Christian settlement, was invaded and occupied by Islamist militias on 21 October. It was recaptured in recent days by the Syrian regular army. When the representatives of the Patriarchate and families of the victims returned to their town they found to their horror two mass graves, where they found the bodies of their relatives and friends. In an atmosphere of grief, outrage and emotion, the funerals of the 30 Christians were celebrated by Archbishop Selwanos Boutros Alnemeh, Syriac Orthodox Metropolitan of Homs and Hama.
.
According to eyewitnesses, many of the civilians were killed by militia gangs of ‘Al- Nusra Front’ and ‘Daash’. The city has been completely destroyed and looted. Some of the militants who invaded the city were holed up in the Syriac Orthodox Church of St Theodore, which was profaned. Sadad is an ancient Syriac village which dates back to 2000 BC located in the region of Qalamoon, north of Damascus. It had 14 churches, a monastery, temples, historic landmarks and archaeological sites.

Archbishop Selwanos Boutros Alnemeh said: “What happened in Sadad is the most serious and biggest massacre of Christians in Syria in the past two and a half years… 45 innocent civilians were martyred for no reason, and among them several women and children, many thrown into mass graves. Other civilians were threatened and terrorized. 30 were wounded and 10 are still missing.

“For one week, 1,500 families were held as hostages and human shields. Among them children, the elderly, the young, men and women. Some of them fled on foot travelling eight kilometres from Sadad to Al-Hafer to find refuge. About 2,500 families fled from Sadad, taking only their clothes, due to the irruption of armed groups and today they are refugees scattered between Damascus, Homs, Fayrouza, Zaydal, Maskane, and Al-Fhayle”.

 

America has committed over a billion dollars to aiding the Syrian rebels and as predicted some of that aid has been falling into Al Qaeda’s hands.

More about Obama’s Freedom Fighters via Walid Showbat: Cannibalism In Syria Causes An Extremely Rare Disease:

Its called Kuru, an extremely rare disease which virtually became extinct after extinguishing cannibalism in Papua New Guinea. Amazingly Kuru has now been found in 8 to 20 people, out of all places, in war-torn Syria, and the only way it could have come about, doctors confirmed, is through cannibalism and the consumption of human brain, 
as first reported by Arabian news source Zaman al-Wasal and substantiated by Orient News Television.

***

One of the infected men in the German hospital was confirmed to have eaten human flesh, and he eventually died. When the Turkish hospital was asked on the details of the cannibalism case, they refrained from saying anything.

Moreover, the Free Syrian Army said they will be doing an investigation on the cannibalism case, and this sparks a hunch as to what their intentions are behind this.

Overall, there are 8 to 20 cases of Kuru in Syria; Kuru strictly is caused by cannibalism, and cannibalism was involved from the report on what took place in the German hospital.

In past studies, it was established that in the area of Fore in Paupa New Guinea, Kuru was transmitted due to “ritualistic mortuary cannibalism.”

It is quite possible that this is what commenced the infection, in that the jihadists began to eat the flesh of their enemies.

As seen, here.

Content warning: graphic and disturbing. (I personally can’t watch it.) I only post it to give you an idea of the type of vermin our tax dollars are supporting.

Obama has cut the United States military to the bone but is squandering billions on aid to Christian massacring, cannibalistic  savages.

Tell Congress: Stop Obama from funding the Syrian Rebels

Legislation in the U.S. House and Senate is aimed at stoppingObama from arming the Syrian rebel terrorists.

A simple three-page bill, the “Protecting Americans from the Proliferation of Weapons to Terrorists Act of 2013” – H.R.2494 and S. 1201 – would “prohibit the President from using any funds on activities that would escalate U.S. involvement in the Syrian civil war.”

This bipartisan effort to keep our arms out of Syria is sponsored by Rep. Christopher Gibson (NY-19)Rep. Michele Bachmann (MN-6)Rep. Scott DesJarlais (TN-4)Rep. Jeff Duncan (SC-3),Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (NE-1)Rep. Rush Holt (NJ-12)Rep. Walter B. Jones, Jr. (NC-3)Rep. Richard M. Nolan (MN-8)Rep. Mark Pocan (WI-2), and Rep. Peter Welch (VT).

In the U.S. Senate, the bill has the support of Sen. Mike Lee (R-UTSen. Rand Paul (R-KY)Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), and Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM).

“Giving weapons to the Syrian opposition means, in all likelihood, that the United States will be arming and aiding extremist groups who seek to defeat us and our way of life,” says Rep. Michele Bachman. “To make the American taxpayer pay to send arms to our enemies is madness. Rather than unilateral foreign policy decision-making from the White House, there needs to be careful debate by Congress, as is our constitutional responsibility, and a clear strategy that is in line with America’s national security interests before any involvement is considered.”

Sen. Mike Lee says: “Any military involvement in Syria, including the arming of Syrian rebels, needs to be authorized through Congress, where concerns can be publicly debated and the American people can have a say. We have to ensure that we are not arming extremist groups who seek to cause chaos in the region and harm the United States and our allies. The long-term objectives of increased involvement in Syria are vague, as are the necessary commitments and costs. The United States cannot be involved in more nation building in the Middle East.”

Megyn Kelly and Marc Thiessen Rake Obama Over The Coals For His “Premeditated Lie.”

Obama altered his health care promise on Monday evening in a speech to about 200 of his campaign supporters and health care activists, claiming “what we said was” you can keep your health care plan “if it hasn’t changed since the law’s passed.”

Megyn Kelly was outraged tonight that Obama made this change without even acknowledging the former version of the statement was a lie. “It’s shocking to think the president explicitly misled millions of Americans about their healthcare!” she exclaimed.  A lie that affected “relationships with their doctors and their children’s relationships with their doctors …knowing that it was untrue….because it was more salable to say it they way he did!”

She had former Bush speechwriter, Marc Thiessen on to talk about what he called Obama’s “premeditated lie.”

Marc wrote at the Washington Post, Monday: A Dishonest Presidency:

It’s not easy to get a lie into a presidential speech. Every draft address is circulated to the White House senior staff and key Cabinet officials in something called the “staffing process.” Every line is reviewed by dozens of senior officials, who offer comments and factual corrections. During this process, it turns out, some of Obama’s policy advisers objected to the “you can keep your plan” pledge, pointing out that it was untrue. But it stayed in the speech. That does not happen by accident. It requires a willful intent to deceive.

In the Bush White House, we speechwriters would often come up with what we thought were great turns of phrase to help the president explain his policies. But we also had a strict fact-checking process, where every iteration of every proposed presidential utterance was scrubbed to ensure it was both accurate and defensible. If the fact-checkers told us a line was inaccurate, we would either kill it or find another way to make the point accurately. I cannot imagine a scenario in which the fact-checkers or White House policy advisers would tell us that something in a draft speech was factually incorrect and that guidance would be ignored or overruled by the president’s political advisers.

Trey Gowdy: Mailed In, Phoned In Applications “a Facade, a Potemkin Village Calculated To Mislead Folks” (Video)

SC Congressman Trey Gowdy was a guest on the Kelly File tonight to discuss the latest ObamaCare BS the Regime is peddling. At issue were the new documents released by the House Oversight and Reform Committee that revealed that while Obama was encouraging Americans to call 1-800-FuckYo or mail in applications to sign up for ObamaCare,  the Regime knew all the applications would end up in the same queue. “The president already  has a Nobel Prize for peace, I think he’s shooting for one for fiction, Gowdy quipped. “To send to people to the mail instead of the website when you know everyone is going in the same queue — it’s  a facade —  it’s  a Potemkin Village that is calculated to mislead folks and create this appearance that everything is going swimmingly when you know otherwise.” He also commented on the president’s infamous healthcare promise which has now been slightly altered.

Obama altered his health care promise on Monday evening in a speech to about 200 of his campaign supporters and health care activists, claiming “what we said was” you can keep your health care plan “if it hasn’t changed since the law’s passed.”

“I could have sworn he said ‘period’ after that statement and now he has added a rather lengthy footnote”, Gowdy noted dryly. “Instead of saying we made a mistake – we made an intentional misstatement, we need you to forgive us, the response is to evade – to answer questions falsely, and then worst of all is to assume that the American people are STUPID enough to believe the explanation that he came up with today!”

According to POLITICO’s Manu Raju, Democrats are not happy about the awkward position the White House has put them in as the trainwreck continues to derail, and they’re expected to defend it. And some are placing the blame squarely on Numero Uno.

“You got to have it, to lose it,” said one unidentified Democratic senator when asked about how the ACA’s roll-out is impacting Obama’s credibility.

Obama’s increasingly beleaguered mouthpiece, Jay Carney, is not doing any better credibility wise. His performance today at the White House press briefing has been characterized as a “Meltdown“, “losing it”, “over-the-top” “flustered”, “sneering” The low point came when Carney desperately tried to enlist the help of the lapdogs in the room, saying derisively,  “I think everyone else is looking quizzical because there’s a reason to be quizzical here,” as if to suggest that Jonathan Karl was the only person there who was too thick-skulled to get a very simple concept. Anyone want to place a bet on the likelihood Jay Carney will be back next year?
