Posted on 05/26/2015 4:17:11 PM PDT by VitacoreVision
A newly released intelligence report from the Pentagon shows that the U.S. government knew that supporting jihadists in the fight against Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad would produce a fundamentalist Islamic State in Eastern Syria and that Obamas supposed anti-ISIS coalition knowingly backed ISIS and other Islamic terrorists for precisely that purpose. The heavily redacted Defense Department report, obtained by watchdog Judicial Watch via a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, shows once again that, contrary to the false narrative peddled by the establishment press, the rise of the savage terror group known as ISIS was actually deliberate policy. Now, the fruits of that plot are becoming clearer as the body count continues to skyrocket.
The 2012 Defense Intelligence Agency report is very blunt about the objectives. The West, Gulf countries [the Islamic regimes ruling Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, etc.], and Turkey support the Syrian opposition, it explains, adding that, as The New American reported at the time, al-Qaeda supported the Syrian uprising from the beginning as well. There is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist [fundamentalist Islam] principality in Eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime. (Emphasis added.) Of course, that is also exactly what happened when ISIS declared the establishment of its caliphate in Eastern Syria and parts of Iraq.
The DIA report also exposes the lies propagated by the Obama administration, senior U.S. lawmakers, and foreign leaders to dupe Americans into allowing the U.S. government to support non-existent moderate rebels in Syria. According to the classified document, which was released by a court order, U.S. authorities were well aware of the fact that, as reported by The New American shortly after it began, the rebellion against Assad was being led by radical jihadists including many of the same forces the U.S. government was ostensibly fighting against in the terror war. The Salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI [Al Qaeda in Iraq] are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria, stated the report, which was dated August 12, 2012, long after The New American and other media outlets exposed that same fact.
The Defense Departments intelligence analysts also warned of the consequences all of the machinations could have on Iraq. This creates the ideal atmosphere for AQI [al-Qaeda Iraq] to return to its old pockets in Mosul and Ramadi, and will provide a renewed momentum under the presumption of unifying the jihad among Sunni Iraq and Syria, and the rest of the Sunnis in the Arab world against what it considers one enemy, the dissenters, the report explained, pointing to two cities in Iraq that are now under ISIS control. ISI [Islamic State in Iraq] could also 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.
The New American magazine and many other sources have been reporting much of that information almost since the start of the Western establishment-backed rebellion against the Syrian regime. However, some analysts are now calling the DIA report a smoking gun. Among other points, the documents offer further proof that the rise of ISIS, due largely to the foreign policy of the Obama administration and its allies, was not the result of an accident or stupidity but of deliberate planning. However, Vice President Joe Biden and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Martin Dempsey had already let the cat at least partially out of the bag.
COSMIC AXIOM: Liberals ALWAYS assist our enemies. ALWAYS.
They do it reflexively. They can’t help themselves.
Check the visitor logs at the WH back then.
if anyone CAIRs to, that is.
So? Nobody will do a thing about this treason.
This was foreseeable even to the most casual observer.
Unpossible. Just 3-4 days ago I had Freepers tell me that we did no such thing. They were quite adamant about it so it must be so.
I’ve been trying to explain to folks what our Eastern Syria policy was resulting in, and folks weren’t too receptive to the idea that the U. S. was sponsoring the development of ISIS. They wanted to push it off on someone or something else.
Nope, we own it IMO.
Last year I told a friend that Obama was working for ISIS. He dismissed my idea before I could make a case.
Normalcy bias will destroy this wonderful country.
Should I hold my breath until the Constitutional Conservatives elected to turn things around in DC speak out forcefully against this still-ongoing outrage? What about all of those anti-war liberals? Anyone???
Well, you have to see the BIG picture, it’s about HOPE and CHANGE. GIve it 2 more years and the picture will be finished.
It’s a lesser evil...no matter what.
Yep.and if the electuon were held tomorrow he’d probably still get 52 percent. I hope Cruz brings all of this out during the debate
That’s why the admin had to pull the whole bus over to come up with a cover for Benghazi: it tied all the evidence up in a big poofy bow for anyone with eyes to see.
The headline should be in the present tense.
Looks like zerohedge was not just a bunch of conspiracy loons after all
The same ones that said any report from zerohedge was conspiracy crap?
Yup. That was the thread/people.
Here’s the thread for those interested
