No surprise here. I wonder if this is one of the reasons China/Russia do not want NATO intervention in the region?
Surely the U.S has thought about this, but since no major repercussions occured when people accused the Libyan uprising being led by Al-Qaeda.. This shouldn't be a big deal?

What if Al-Qaeda IS inciting all this violence in the region, getting back with cash/communication/weapons like the Taliban back in the 80's, and sitting on it to wage future war?

So many variables. What do ya'll think?

I am not surprised one bit

This is not an uncommon pattern in these uprisings in the Arab spring

CIA/NATO is backing Al Qaeda 100% in all these regions

the EXACT SAME THING happend in Libya

Al Qaeda backs Libyan protesters and condemns Gaddafi

Libyan rebel commander admits his fighters have al-Qaeda links

Politics... as if that is any real surprise.

Figure this: Iran and Al Qaeda share an almost identical theological identity. Both have an innate hatred for all things democratic. Both support any Middle eastern nation that opposes Israel and/or the US.

However, the wave of popular sentiment is changing and so too must they. The outcome is utterly strange: Iran supports Assad while Al Qaeda supports the revolt.

You may call this playing both sides to the middle and probably find yourself absolutely right. It serves the purpose of creating the image of a division between Al Qaeda and Iran while assuring that no matter who wins, they will both have an avenue into the court of the victors.
