The latest about "moderate" Syrian rebels: Founder of Free Syrian Army is "in the lap of Al-Qa`idah"

Do you remember all the laudatory articles and profiles in the Western press about Riyadh Al-As`ad, the founder of the Free Syrian Army, and how he represents the hope of the new Syria? Well, I remember vividly.  The latest about Riyadh Al-As`ad is that elements of the Free Syrian Army are now accusing him of falling "into the lap of Al-Qa`idah" for coordinating with them.  I doubt that Liz Sly and the Western correspondents in Beirut will cover this.
