The Russian foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, revealed on 4 June 2016 that the United States had asked Russia to not attack Al-Qaida in Syria.
In the Idleb region, armed groups described by Washington as being “moderate rebels” have become involved with Al-Nusra Front, the Syrian branch of Al-Qaida. The cease fire agreement, which came into force on 27 February, planned that armed groups supported by the US would disassociate themselves from armed groups, classified as terrorist groups by the UN.
Officially, Al-Qaida had planned and carried out the 11 September terrorist attacks which killed 2 977 people. The US went to war against the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and Iraq on the grounds that they had supported Al-Qaida (even though Washington has since admitted that Iraq was in fact not involved).
In recent years, Al-Qaida has financed the Turkish Justice and Development Party (AKP), helped NATO to overthrow the Gaddafi regime (Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya), and did “good work” in Syria, to quote Laurent Fabius, the former French foreign minister.
Since the publication of Thierry Meyssan’s book, 9/11: The Big Lie, most NATO member states regard any attempt to contest Al Qaida’s responsibility for the attacks as being “conspiracy theory”.
