The FBI is currently tracking 48 potential high risk ISIS militants in the US with their top surveillance teams while about 1,000 cases are being investigated. The potential for more coming into the country or being radicalized in the country is high. Unless ISIS is cut off at the head, the situation will grow worse. Some who have watched this closely think Obama is deliberately aiding and abetting the enemy.
Barack Obama has been attempting to fund the Assad opposition and now finds himself in the middle of the civil war with ISIS filling the vacuum. While arming the opposition and funding them, he’s funded ISIS. He didn’t do this alone but he jumped in far too late.
It was only months ago that Barack Obama took $500 million tax dollars to train 60 anti-ISIS fighters. The CIA could only find a handful to train and after they were trained, they were then either captured, killed or joined the enemy.
According to retired Lt. Colonel Tony Shaffer, the vast majority of the ‘opposition’ to ISIS is actually linked to ISIS. When we arm these ‘moderate terrorists’, which is Obama’s plan to defeat them, we are actually arming ISIS as well. He said the numbers of ISIS or other jihadis in the ranks of the ‘moderate’ rebels are greater than 65%.
There is no good to be had from funding these militia. They may be after Assad, but they are coming right back at us, Shaffer told Alex Jones.
They aren’t going to kill Assad and then go away, they are going to form their own state.
These so-called allies sold our US journalist to al-Qaida who then beheaded him.
“There are no good rebel militia and any time we funded them, it’s come back to bite us,” he said.
Shaffer might be referring to the Carter administration funding Osama bin Laden.
Why aren’t we working with Jordan, Egypt, and why not arm Christians?
The Muslim Brotherhood are not moderates as our administration would have us believe. Shaffer spoke to a top general close to el-Sisi, the president of Egypt, who said the reason al-Qaida hasn’t been defeated is because they are being fed by the Muslim Brotherhood. CAIR is an organization right here in the United States that is a wing of the Brotherhood.
We know that US intelligence have been doctoring reports to make the “war against ISIS” seem much more successful than it is. Why is the president claiming to be fighting ISIS while he isn’t but is pretending he is?
The former Head of the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency), General Michael Flynn said the administration DELIBERATELY armed the jihadists.
The administration made a “willful decision” to do what they are doing which is arming the Salafists, al Nusra (al-Qaida in Syria), and other jihadists by supporting the “rebels,” General Flynn said.
2012 AND THE ARAB SPRING
A story from the guardian in 2012, made it clear the United States was supporting the insurgency against Bashar al-Assad, an insurgency which was being taken over by Al-Qaida.
The one thing that the Syrian people seemed to fear more than Assad was Al-Qaida. Al-Qaida will establish an Islamic state in which any sin is cause for severe punishment. They are ISIS and ISIS is al-Qaida. All of these jihadists are the same people.
One of our allies and soon-to-be enemy, Abu Khuder and his men were fighting for al-Qaida in 2012 alongside the Free Syrian Army or FSA, the US allies. They call themselves the ghuraba’a, or “strangers”, after a famous jihadi poem celebrating Osama bin Laden’s time with his followers in the Afghan mountains, and they were one of a number of jihadi organisations establishing themselves in Eastern Syria.
“Some people are worried about carrying the [black] flags,” said Abu Khuder. “They fear America will come and fight us. So we fight in secret. Why give Bashar and the west a pretext?”
The guardian reported:
Abu Khuder split with the FSA and pledged allegiance to al-Qaida’s organisation in Syria, the Jabhat al Nusra or Solidarity Front. He let his beard grow and adopted the religious rhetoric of a jihadi, becoming a commander of one their battalions.
“The Free Syrian Army has no rules and no military or religious order. Everything happens chaotically,” he said. “Al-Qaida has a law that no one, not even the emir, can break.
“The FSA lacks the ability to plan and lacks military experience. That is what [al-Qaida] can bring. They have an organisation that all countries have acknowledged.
“In the beginning there were very few. Now, mashallah, there are immigrants joining us and bringing their experience,” he told the gathered people. “Men from Yemen, Saudi, Iraq and Jordan. Yemenis are the best in their religion and discipline and the Iraqis are the worst in everything – even in religion.”
At this, one man in the room – an activist in his mid-30s who did not want to be named – said: “So what are you trying to do, Abu Khuder? Are you going to start cutting off hands and make us like Saudi? Is this why we are fighting a revolution?”
The Arab Spring is the Wahhabi rising and we helped make it happen.
2013, ALLIANCE WITH AL-QAEDA
August, 2013, Syrian Jabhat al Nusra Front chief Abou Mohamad al-Joulani pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda leader Sheik Ayman al-Zawahri. They were fighting alongside the Syrian rebel forces and were battling to win the hearts and minds of the people.
Al Qaeda in Benghazi was training fighters to infiltrate Syrian rebel forces that we are backing. They are providing fighters to the al-Nusra front.
August, 2013, we couldn’t open the White House for tours, we cut military tuition to active duty personnel; doctor’s payments had been cut; and we furloughed FAA employees, all because of sequester, but we had plenty of money, $123 million in fact, to give to the military organization [the Supreme Military Council] in Syria which had links to Al-Qaeda.
The pledge was double what the Obama administration originally pledged. We began sending technical advisors.
The US government had given about $700 million at that point in direct aid to this broad coalition of foreign Islamists, mercenaries, Muslim terrorists including al-Qaeda, and other forces.
The Syrian National Coalition, which formed in 2011 and includes the Muslim Brotherhood as members, named Communist George Sabra as leader in March. He was born Christian and that is how the media chooses to identify him.
The al-Qaeda connection was made clear [again] after several photos surfaced of these fighters grilling a decapitated human head.
They are recognized as the group representing the opposition and were given a seat in the Arab League.
In September, 2013, a US-based think tank, the Bipartisan Policy Center, issued a report titled, ‘Jihadist Terrorism: A Threat Assessment.’ It states that counterterrorism efforts by the US over the last three years has decimated much of Al Qaeda’s strength in Yemen and Somalia.
The report adds however that ‘al-Qaeda and allied groups today are situated in more places than on September 11, 2001. They maintain a presence in some 16 different theatres of operation—compared with half as many as recently as five years ago.’ Areas include South Asia and Southeast Asia, a resurgence in Iraq and an expansion into North Africa, Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, and Syria.
‘Al-Qaeda has embraced a strategy that transformed it into a decentralized, networked, transnational movement, rather than the single monolithic entity it was on the eve of 9/11. This strategy was undoubtedly the result of necessity; U.S. counterterrorism efforts in the wake of the 9/11 attacks largely obliterated al-Qaeda as an organization,’ said Peter Bergen, the report’s author.
The authors of the report were concerned at the time that Syria will provide al-Qaida with an opportunity to regroup, train and plan operations. The foreign fighters – al-Qaida – could destabilize the region or join forces to attack the West.
Radical Al-Qaida groups, like the al Nusra Front and Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), are becoming dominant in Syria. The report warned that help to the rebels could end up helping Nusra and other al-Qaida militias.
The Syrian Observtory for Human Rights reported that the legitimate forces inside Syria are fighting the al Qaeda-linked groups and Assad at the same time. They broke with al Nusra after accepting their presence for more than a year. After that, the more radical elements were fighting both the Free Syrian Army and Assad to grab territory for their caliphate.
The opposition Syrian National Coalition elected ‘moderate’ Islamist Ahmad Tumeh as provisional prime minister, entrusting him with the difficult task of restoring order to areas no longer controlled by President Bashar al-Assad, coalition members told Reuters. They hoped to gain credibility with the US.
That was never to come to pass. Al-Qaida groups – al Nusra – was the dominant force. ISIS was an offshoot of al-Qaida.
On September 7, 2013, there was a siege of Dalga, Egypt, a village in Egypt with a large Christian population, which had been overrun by the Muslim Brotherhood. The Christians in Dalga were being threatened and killed, their churches burned. The same scenario began to be played out all over the Middle East, including Ma’aloula, Syria.
The US supported the rebels who are responsible, indirectly or directly. We are on the same side and in the least, we have empowered them in what can only be describes as a global jihad.
The tiny Christian village of Ma’aloula, Syria, with its population of about 3,500, was protected by the Assad government. It was taken over by our allies – the rebels – and they killed the Christians.
The faction that took over the village is alleged to be al-Nusra and they were and are fighting alongside the Free Syrian Army who we support.
That same month, photos of the al-Aqsa Islamic Brigades, a faction of the opposition Free Syrian Army fighting to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad, shows Islamic fighters marching away from a burning U.S. Capitol. it was part of one of their ad campaigns to lure recruits.
NBC consultant, Evan Kohlmann, said Al-Aqsa had not been designated a terrorist group, though they fight alongside the Tawhid Brigrade which is linked to the al Qaeda faction of the rebel forces – Jabhat al Nusra.
We knew Al Qaeda has infiltrated the Free Syrian Army. Rep. McCaul believed at the time that 50% or more of the Free Syrian Army is comprised of al-Qaeda linked groups. He is not alone in this calculation. Several representatives have heard the same intel.
2014, FREE SYRIAN ARMY FIGHTS WITH TERRORISTS
In June, 2014, Al Baghdadi, a former US prisoner held overseas, declared himself the Caliph. Hyman al-Zawahiri of al-Qaida responded by breaking with him.
In March 2014, the FSA or Free Syrian Army was replete with radical elements in addition to working with them in some cases.
Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International during the previous two years said FSA brigades have committed war crimes including kidnapping, torture and executions. They have brutalized Christians because they see them as allies of Assad.
The Supreme Military Council is a loose coalition of individuals who represent militias fighting under the FSA banner.
Zahran Alloush, was a supreme council member when the American aid was sent. Alloush, a co-founder of a new opposition coalition called the “Islamic Front” [radical Salafists] has praised another al-Qaida affiliate in the Syrian jihad.
“Jabhat Al-Nusra are brothers who have firm strength, and who fight the enemy in the Alawite regime, we have jointly conducted many military operation and we saw great pluck from them,” Alloush said in November. “I met with their Sharia counselor, Abu Maria Al Qahtani, and I did not see any differences between the ideas of their counselor and the ideas of ours, their counselor could be ours if we were the same group, I also appreciate my great brother Abu Mohamad Al Jolani, the leader of al-Nusra.”
Another supreme council member, Jamal Marouf, who is cast as a moderate, but allied himself with radical jihadists in a January Twitter post.
“The front of the Syrian revolutionizes, The Islamic Front, and Jabhat al-Nusra, Muhajreen and Ansar, we are all in the fighting front together against the regime. What happened now is a fitna (strife), God damn who ignited it,” Maarouf wrote.
A group of Syrian émigrés formed the organization called SSG and they funnel money we give them to the Free Syrian Army. We had provided them with $10 million for food and medical supplies in Syria by early 2014 even though the US has economic sanctions against the country,
There are no written reports kept and no information on which brigades get the money and how it is used.
In October, 2014, Vice President Joe Biden told an audience at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government that ISIS had been strengthened by Turkey, the U.A.E. and Arab allies who were supporting the insurgency against Syria’s president, Bashar-al-Assad.
He suggested that these same countries were supplying weapons to al Qaeda, al Nusra and its offshoots.
“They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad,” Biden said at the time.
“Except that the people who were being supplied were al Nusra and al Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world.”
“We could not convince our colleagues to stop supplying them,” Biden said.
Specifically addressing Turkey, Biden said, “‘President Erdogan told me…he’s an old friend…said, ‘You were right. We let too many people (including foreign fighters) through.’ Now they are trying to seal their border.’”
Erdoğan denied it and Biden apologized but the truth has a way of looking like the truth when it leaks out. There is little doubt they are selling ISIS oil. The US has not been bombing the oil lines and after Russia came out this week to accuse Turkey of selling Isis oil, Obama accused Assad of buying oil from ISIS – interesting timing.
Stories about this funding and arming of terrorists by our allies have been known for years. We were party to it in Benghazi, according to investigative liberal reporter, Seymour Hersch.
After Mr. Obama drew the red line, a chemical attack took place and was pinned on Bashar al Assad only there were reports to the contrary.
Pulitzer Prize winning author, Seymour Hersch, revealed that the attack came from the extremists in the rebel camp, the very people we too have inadvertently backed. It was later proven, not only by U.N. sampling but other sources, that rebels, probably backed by Erdoğan, fired the chemical weapons.
The implications in Hersch’s report, The Red Line and the Rat Line, were that Turkey, which took part in supplying the insurgents, were directly behind the attack in order to get the U.S. into the war against Assad.
Hersh’s allegations condemn the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdoğan for political and military manipulation. Yet the sins of Erdoğan’s administration seem to be an outgrowth of America’s own self-destructive foreign policy.
The rat line supplied the insurgents against Assad and was funded by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar and executed by the CIA in conjunction with the UK’s MI6 according to the now-controversial Hersch.
The assessment of the Defense Intelligence Agency is that the sarin was supplied by Turkey to elements in Ghouta, where the attack occurred, with the intent of “push[ing] Obama over the red line.” Intercepted transmissions from Turkish operators in the aftermath of the attack were jubilant, and the success of their covert mission must have seemed well in hand. Obama’s implicit call to war in the coming month was proof of that, Hersch believed.
“They must do it themselves,” Mr. Obama asserted as he armed “rebels”, cuts our army back to pre-World War II levels, and attended as many as four to five fundraisers in a day.
Obama has called ISIS the jayvee, said the risk to us is only tangential, and he has teamed up with Iran to allegedly fight ISIS. Iran is part of the problem.
He has rid Libya of an anti-jihadist and helped put a Muslim Brotherhood operative in charge in Egypt, whom the country fortunately rose up against.
2015, WE WERE WARNED
“Moderate rebels who had been armed and trained by the United States either surrendered or defected to the extremists as the Jabhat al-Nusra group, affiliated with al-Qaida, swept through the towns and villages the moderates controlled in the northern province of Idlib, in what appeared to be a concerted push to vanquish the moderate Free Syrian Army, according to rebel commanders, activists and analysts,” the Washington Post reported Nov. 2.
Earlier this year, Longwar Journal found a few paragraphs buried at the end of an Al Jazeera story describing the tension that exists between the Free Syrian Army and an al Qaeda affiliate in which a leader of ISIS claimed that the Free Syrian Army (FSA) (our allies) is selling weapons to ISIS.
The CIA has been vetting those they sell arms to but maybe they even the CIA can’t vet them.
We know that ISIS has U.S. weapons. Of that there is no doubt. IJ Review reported in July, 2013 that arms shipments from Croatia that were meant for the Free Syrian Army ended up in the hands of ISIS. The weapons were either captured, or acquired by former FSA fighters as they joined ISIS, the author said, but there is another possibility. Perhaps the FSA sold them to ISIS. Any Syrian working with the U.S. has a target on their back and many have given up. Certainly Russia’s and Iran’s assault will cause more to join ISIS or flee.
The Free Syrian Army has been much more concerned about fighting al-Assad than ISIS and have fought alongside ISIS and al-Nusra (al Qaeda) because they want to destroy Assad much more than ISIS.
The time to help the Syrians was before they were dispirited and before the terrorists from foreign lands moved into Syria and took control of the civil war.
We don’t know who the enemy is and our president wants to let more than 10,000 unvetted Syrian refugees into the country for humanitarian reasons. We’ve already accepted 650,000 from these war-torn lands, including Syria. Libya was the result of Hillary starting a war for humanitarian reasons.
We can’t trust these people, including the administration. Is our administration incompetent Or is it something far more sinister? The entire strategy is feckless and ineffective to say the least.
