Obama Foreign Policy Failure:: Al-Qaida seizes weapons, bases from US-backed Syrian rebels

While the corrupt media machine does whatever possible to knock off Donald Trump, President Obama’s foreign policy continues to crumble. 
It’s just another metric that measures Obama’s ineffectiveness as president.  Clearly, he’s the worst president in U.S. history surpassing Jimmy Carter.  I didn’t think I’d see that in my lifetime.   

CNS News reports Al-Qaeda militants swept through a rebel-held town in northern Syria in a display of dominance Sunday, arresting U.S.-backed fighters and looting weapons stores belonging to the Free Syrian Army.

The militants belonging to the al-Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front along with allied jihadists have been moving to exert their authority over rebel-held areas in Idlib province since a partial ceasefire to the country's five-year conflict took effect two weeks ago, extinguishing patriotic demonstrations and sidelining nationalist militias.

The FSA's 13th Division said on Twitter Sunday that Nusra fighters were going door to door in the town of Maarat Numan and arresting its cadres after Nusra, alongside fighters from the Jund al-Aqsa faction, seized Division 13 posts the night before.
Seven Division 13 fighters died in the clashes.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitoring group, said Nusra seized anti-tank missiles, armored vehicles, a tank, and other arms from the division, which has received weapons, training, and money from the U.S. government. It said Nusra and Jund al-Aqsa detained 40 fighters from the division.
