Well, this is really no surprise is it? Afterall, officials from both the military and intelligence agencies have been telling Obama for at least three years that groups his administration have funded in Syria were actually Islamic jihadists. Of course, Obama’s narrative is “the US is winning the war on ISIS’ and “ISIS is a JV team”. If you are not using that narrative, he really doesn’t care. Not only that, but his administation will even change your facts and news to fit his narrative.
But, the fact is, if it weren’t for Obama’s administration – pulling our troops out of the Middle East when he did – ISIS wouldn’t be this big of a factor in the first place. Instead, Obama pulled out US troops too early and then left US tanks and supplies for ISIS to use. Then, ISIS used these supplies and equipment to take over more land and resources. But there’s more…
H/T The Express Tribune:
“During the investigations, Yousaf al Salafi revealed that he was getting funding – routed through America – to run the organization in Pakistan and recruit young people to fight in Syria,” a source privy to the investigations revealed to Daily Express on the condition of anonymity.
Al Salafi is a Pakistani-Syrian, who entered Pakistan through Turkey five months ago. Earlier, it was reported that he crossed into Turkey from Syria and was caught there. However, he managed to escape from Turkey and reached Pakistan to establish IS in the region.
Sources said al Salafi’s revelations were shared with the US Secretary of State John Kerry during his recent visit to Islamabad. “The matter was also taken up with CENTCOM chief General Lloyd Austin during his visit to Islamabad earlier this month,” a source said.
Al Salafi also confessed that he – along with a Pakistani accomplice, reportedly Imam of a mosque – was recruiting people to send them to Syria and was getting around $600 per person from Syria.
“The US has been condemning the IS activities but unfortunately has not been able to stop funding of these organizations, which is being routed through the US,” a source said.
“The US had to dispel the impression that it is financing the group for its own interests and that is why it launched offensive against the organization in Iraq but not in Syria,” he added.
Here’s the video:
Yep! That’s right.
Obama and his administration were well aware that funding was coming through the US banks, but did he stop it? Nope.
Seems like it would be a simple solution, but when it comes to logic and simple solutions to fighting ISIS, well don’t count on Obama or his administration for that. Afterall, this is the same president that pulled US troops out of the Middle East early and created this big monster called ISIS in the first place. Oh, but don’t worry…the narrative’s still the same…”the US is winning the war against ISIS” and “ISIS is a JV team”.
And, for those military and intelligence officers who don’t continue to stick to that narrative, well, never fear, Obama and his team will just revise your reports to FIT the narrative. Just ask over 50 intelligence analysts who claimed their reports were altered.
A recently declassified 2012 document shows that “Salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood and AQI [Al-Qaeda in Iraq]” were listed as the “major forces driving the insurgency in Syria.” The document also revealed that “the West, Gulf countries and Turkey support the opposition while Russia, China and Iran support the regime.” According to the declassified document, the Obama administration was warned in 2012 that these Islamic jihadists wanted to create a “Salafist principality in eastern Syria” and that ISI [Islamic State of Iraq] could declare an Islamic State through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, which will create grave danger in regards to unifying Iraq and the protection of its territory.”
Obama’s administration wants Americans to believe THE narrative: “the US is winning the war against ISIS”, so more Americans will vote for Hillary Clinton. Wake Up America! More lies will not make a difference and neither will allowing over a million unvetted refugees into our country. These illegal refugees will just ensure more Democrats get elected!
