Something's rotten in the State of Ar-Raqqah

After being told for months that Syrian government forces are making progress against the rebels, and after being told for at least a year that al-Qaeda and affiliates have sidelined the Free Syrian Army "good" rebels, we are now treated to the spectacle of a civil war within the civil war.

Earlier this year it was big news that the allegedly most powerful rebel group in the country had sworn allegiance to al-Qaeda. Since then, al-Qaeda has morphed into the "Islamist State of Iraq and Syria", and whadyaknow, the al-Nusra Front is now fighting against al-Qaeda!

Something's not adding up here, folks...
