Al Qaeda-backed group selected recruits for Syrian police force set up using taxpayers’ money

A £12million foreign aid project was halted last night amid fears some of the money has gone to jihadis.

The British taxpayers’ cash was handed over to set up a civilian police force in Syria.

But one Al Qaeda-backed group has selected officer recruits while another extremist cell siphoned off cash in a protection racket.

It also emerged that a number of employees on the payroll of the Free Syrian Police were either fictitious or dead.

    This is why Muslims can never be helped or aided.

    Pull every troop out.
    Give these assholes NO more money.
    Sell them weapons if they have money.
    Let them kill each other.
    Use the troops to let NOT ONE escape.
    Time to finish this bullshit.

    A classic government – “NGO” public safety in foreign civil strife money wasting fake operation.
    Who would get involved in such a high risk effort on the ground?
    – People who were affiliated with the terrorists to be targeted, of course.
    – Greedy people with a death wish.
    – Swindlers and assorted misfits.
