[Marxism] Fwd: Glenn Greenwald’s Khorasan conspiracy theory misses the point

The actual story here is one that is somewhat more complex than appeals 
to conspiracy theorists like Glenn Greenwald and Alex Jones and it 
requires giving as much attention to what is happening in Syria as to 
what is happening behind closed doors in the capital of the Evil Empire.

The invention of the Khorasan Group — which is to say, the creation of 
the name — seems to have been necessitated not by the desire to find a 
pretext for bombing another Muslim country, but instead the desire to 
avoid headlines which would identify the target of a cluster of 
airstrikes by its real name: Jabhat al-Nusra (JN).
