Remember the “JV Team” that was no big deal? Even after they took Ramadi? The Obama administration in general, and the President in particular just doesn’t seem to care much about ISIS. Life for the administration seems to be all about misdirection so we aren’t paying attention to what ISIS is doing in the Middle East and right here at home. Could it be because the US government run by Barack Obama is funding ISIS?
I know it sounds like a conspiracy, and I’m really not big on conspiracies, but this one might have some legs.
ISLAMABAD: Yousaf al Salafi – allegedly the Pakistan commander of Islamic State (IS) or Daish – has confessed during investigations that he has been receiving funds through the United States.
These reports are coming out of Pakistan through independent news agencies with no third party verification. There’s been enough stuff going on in the Middle East with respect to US policy – or lack thereof – that I’m hard pressed to just write any possibility off.
“During the investigations, Yousaf al Salafi revealed that he was getting funding – routed through America – to run the organisation 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.
That could certainly thicken the old plot. Here’s a report through Russia Today .
I’d normally write them off too, but since most of the real news we find about what’s going on inside the Obama government ends up being sourced through various real news outlets in the UK, I’m not writing anybody off anymore.
Here’s the money quote from the Tribune story …
“The US has been condemning the IS activities but unfortunately has not been able to stop funding of these organisations, 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 organisation in Iraq but not in Syria,” he added.
And finally, there was this little slip of the tongue by a familiar figure here in the US just about a week ago.
