SyriaQaeda

The al-Qaeda wing of the rebel alliance in Syria is eating the non-Qaeda wing.

An al-Qaida front group fighting in Syria on Wednesday overran the northern town of Azaz near the border with Turkey after fierce clashes with rebels, activists told Agence France Presse.

“The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has seized complete control of Azaz. They are in control of the town’s entrances,” said Abu Ahmad, an activist inside the town. [LINK]

Mr. President, would you please start killing al-Qaeda in the border town of Azaz? Pretty please?
