"It's absolutely astounding the United States would support those ['rebel'] groups. If the American public knew that those groups fighting the Syrian government, and I refer in particular to Fateh al-Sham, were actually in fact a re-branded al-Qaeda in Syria, namely people who voluntarily associated themselves with the terrorist organization that blew up the World Trade Centre in 2001, they'd be appalled and American foreign policy would fall apart as a result. The American media refusing to draw the links between al-Qaeda and Fateh al-Sham or al-Nusra or whatever they rebrand themselves as is absolutely shameful."
