Obama and Hillary DID Found ISIS
This 2012 US Government Memo Proves It
By Jim Jatras
August 17, 2013 "Information Clearing House" - No one paying attention with even one
eye and half an ear can be ignorant of the fact that when it comes to this
year’s election the MSM are lying shills for Hillary. But now it seems
they’re all suffering from amnesia too.
The latest “OMG, Trump said that!” moment is The Donald’s claim
that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are, correspondingly, the “founder”
and “cofounder” of ISIS. True to form, the media reaction has been to
shriek in outrage that he would cast aspersions on such august personages.
As of this writing, not one American media source of which this
writer is aware has brought up in relation to Trump’s claims the August
2012 report (declassified
and released in 2015 under a FOIA request from Judicial Watch) from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)
stating that “there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared
Salafist principality in Eastern Syria, and this is exactly what the
supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian
regime.” The “supporting powers” are identified as “western countries” (no
doubt including and led by the United States), “the Gulf States”
(presumably including and led by Saudi Arabia), and “Turkey” (just Turkey).
In August 2012 the Secretary of State at the time was one Hillary Rodham
Clinton. The President was and still is one Barack Hussein Obama.
The DIA report said, in essence, that if we (the U.S. and our local
cronies) keep aiding al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other such
sterling democrats, something really nasty would arise in eastern Syria.
Several months later, it did, when ISIS declared itself a state straddling
the Syria-Iraq border.
At some point, even a three-year-old picks up on the concept of causation.
“Johnny, if you keep doing that, you’ll [break it, hurt yourself,
whatever].” The MSM would have us think that Obama and Hillary are less
intelligent than a three-year-old. By dumping funds and arms into the hands
of terrorists—only the supposedly “moderate” head-choppers, of course—they
had no idea, poor dears, what might happen.
Except they did. Aside from the cautionary example of the chaos Libya was
thrown into by “regime change” in 2011, not to mention the appearance of
al-Qaeda in the first place as a precipitate from the Afghan war against
the Soviets, they had every reason to heed what amounted to a forewarning
from DIA. Instead, they decided to press on, aware of the likely result.
This was intended: “ . . . this is exactly what the supporting powers to
the opposition want.”
General Michael Flynn, currently a Trump adviser, took over as head of DIA
a month before the issuance of the report in question. Whether it was his
personal effort to caution the administration or simply the professional
analysts in the DIA apparatus laying out the facts as they saw them, the
2012 report made no difference. As Flynn
confirmed last year,
this was not a matter of the administration’s turning a “blind eye” but of
their “willful decision” that led to ISIS:
Hasan: You are basically
saying that even in government at the time you knew these groups were
around, you saw this analysis, and you were arguing against it, but who
Flynn: I think the
Hasan: So the administration turned a blind eye to your analysis?
Flynn: I don’t know that they turned a blind eye, I think it was a
decision. I think it was a willful decision.
Hasan: A willful decision to support an insurgency that had
Salafists, Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood?
Flynn: It was a willful decision to do what they’re doing.
In a decent society, most of these people would be in jail, not telling us
who’s “unqualified” to keep implementing the same disastrous policies
they’ve given us all these years. Instead, their sage pronouncements are
given saturation media exposure while the smoking gun that proves Trump’s
case on ISIS gets the Memory Hole.
To say the playing field is tilted doesn’t even begin to describe it. The
real question is whether the American public can see it for what it
