ISTANBUL - The United States has suspended all non-lethal assistance into northern Syria after Islamic Front forces seized headquarters and warehouses belonging to the opposition's Supreme Military Council, a U.S. Embassy spokesman in Ankara said.
Fighters from the Islamic Front, an al Qaeda-inspired union of six major rebel groups, took control of the Free Syrian Army bases at the Bab al-Hawa crossing on Syria's northwestern border with Turkey late on Friday.

Non-lethal assistance can include communications equipment, body armor, night vision goggles and <nobr>medical supplies</nobr> to assist the rebels fighting President Bashar Assad.

Today NPR was talking about how Turkey just realized that inviting al Qaeda to move in next door might have some negative consequences. Shocking.

We are going to stop assisting al Qaeda now? What changed?
