CIA Armed al Queda/ISIS, Provided Ammo and Trucks
CIA Armed al Queda/ISIS, Provided Ammo and Trucks by Rory – The Daily Coin
Why is this corporate online news source reporting the Obama regime armed al Queda and the Syrian “rebels? Why? Because it has been well known for many years and several internet only journalist and news outlets, like Tony Cartalucci, Journal-NEO and Strategic-Culture have exposed these crimes against humanity time and again.
Under the Obama regime the entire Middle East became a giant war zone from Libya to Iraq to Syria to Afghanistan with more in the planning stage and the main objective being Iran. Death and destruction as far as the eye can see – as far as the eye can see with super powerful binoculars.
If you remember under the Bush II regime it was proclaimed “they hate us for our freedom”. Never mind the fact the people in the regions we destroyed probably knew and understood what was happening because American warmongers were there to rape and pillage the land for resources and install the puppet government the warmongers wanted to have in place. Could it be this was/is the reason “they hate us”?
Could it be that whenever Americans show up bad things happen, lives are ruined or ended, communities destroyed and the region becomes nothing more than a giant pile of rubble? Look across Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen and anywhere else where America has been “spreading democracy”. We need to stop “spreading democracy” and start lending a helping hand, like China and Russia have done in the areas we destroyed. Utterly ridiculous.
REYHANLI, Turkey – U.S. military equipment and ammunition, sent to Syria as part of a failed Obama administration plan to find and arm moderate forces to defeat ISIS, were instead simply handed over to an Al Qaeda group, according to the man who said he himself brokered the deal.
“I communicated with Al Qaeda’s branch, Al Nusra, to protect and safely escort me and my soldiers for two hours from North Aleppo to West Aleppo,” Maj. Anas Ibrahim Obaid, better known on the battlefield as Abu Zayd, told Fox News from his home in the western Aleppo area. “In exchange, I gave them five pickup trucks and ammunition.”
Those trucks and ammo were issued to him by the United States in 2015, part of a $500 million Department of Defense effort to “train and equip” a new “ideologically moderate” force to battle ISIS. The program, one of at least two designed to funnel arms to so-called moderate Syrian rebels, proved to be a spectacular failure for the Obama administration.
Zayd, who said he defected from the Syrian Army to the opposition in 2012, described a program that was rife with inconsistencies and incompetencies.
He claimed the main prerequisite for inclusion in the program was proof of association with a group that had fought ISIS, the Islamic State. That was followed by a few basic questions, like, “With which faction did you fight?” and “What do you think about ISIS?”
After undergoing training in Turkey, the first batch of 54 trained fighters crossed back to Syria in July 2015 – only to be almost instantly ambushed by Al Nusra militants. Several of the men were kidnapped, and their U.S.-issued weapons were stolen.
A second Obama administration program, “Timber Sycamore,” was started by the CIA in late 2012 with the similar aim of arming rebels. This particular operation was active along the Turkish border to Syria’s north, and a Jordanian crossing in the south, referred to as the “Southern Front.”
But Syrian opposition figures say this program was also compromised, with arms falling into the hands of ISIS or Al Nusra.
The program initially supplied light weapons. But as the Syrian civil war intensified, the U.S. strengthened its commitment by providing selected rebels with American “tune-launched, optically tracked, wire-guided” antitank missiles, better known as BGM-71 TOWs.
One opposition group backed by Washington in 2014 to use the TOWs was the FSA group Hazem Movement.
“We became optimistic we could overthrow the regime,” Asem Zidan, 27, formerly a media activist for the FSA’s Hazem, told Fox News. “And the TOW missiles helped us to prevent the regime pushing forward for some time … but it wasn’t enough.”
Zidan said only 10 TOWs at a time were issued, which he said fell well short of what was required to defeat regime forces. And matters only worsened when Al Nusra started to attack and “steal their weapons.”
Another rebel fighter, Suheil Alhamoud, 30, who defected from the Syrian Army in March 2012 — where he was a specialist in missiles – also expressed frustration over what he called insufficient efforts to help.
After a string of several successful attacks against ISIS forces, Alhamoud said that in late November 2014 he received a supply of malfunctioning TOWs, believed to have come from surplus Saudi stockpiles. But despite having a stated range of more than two miles, some missiles would travel no more than 150 feet. Source – Fox News
What’s surprising is a corporate news outlet like Fox is reporting something as damaging as the above information. For anyone who still thinks Assad is some kind of mad-man hell bent on killing his people with chemical weapons please re-read the above article and explain to me why the CIA was training, paying and arming the so-called enemy formerly known as al-Queda – you know, the group headed by global enemy number 1 Osama bin Laden – yeah, that al-Queda.
