the video said booked in langley virginia, i get the feeling that this is more complicated than it seems
1. some cia analist could have said, sure if you see anything interesting tell me. he could have been a freind of an think tank cia employee. he would have gone to syria by himself.
2. some psycho cia handler has his own views of syria and sent this guy to this group which the fbi didnt like, when he came back then the fbi prosicuted him couse there is a picture of him with an rpg (the video showed a crashed mi-8 in the middle of a desert, a flat desert, meaning long range, rpgs arent that accurate, but stingers?

He must have the worst CIA handler then, since he was picked up in cooperation w/ DeptHS

Haroun linked the CIA to Al Nusra. They had to arrest him to obscure this fact.

Since when is an RPG a "weapon of mass distruction?" 10 Years ago that term was applied nukes, etc.

Surprised? Why? The CIA has armed & trained Al Qaeda & other such Sunni Islamists in so-called 'safe' zones at the behest of Saudi Arabia, Turkey & the Gulf States openly in following conflicts.
-Sovi et Afghanistan war
-Chechen uprising
-Destru ction of Yugoslavia

Lately Libya & Egypt have been compromised by Sunni Islamists bankrolled by Saudi America.Why? Because the CIA can't find any average Syrians ready to die in the Syrian civil war..The average Syrian just wants to get on w/ their ordinary lives. Therefore the CIA is using Jihadist Mercenaries from all over the world as ground troops. Just like Yugoslavia.

This should send a strong msg to anyone working with Al-CIAda. He should not have spilled the beans about the US supplied chemical weapons used that will serve as an excuse for another US-led Nato war on another sovereign country. Harroun will never see the light of day again.
