REPORT: ISIS got CIA weapons during Syrian rebel transfer – media shocked!

Talk about being a little late on a story.

For years, it had been known that the massive amount of weapons that were transferred from the CIA to Syrian rebels actually helped fuel the rise of ISIS. Of course, anyone who uttered that news was labeled a conspiracy theorist by the Obama administration and the mainstream media.

Well, those so-called conspiracy theorists have finally been vindicated.

UK-based independent weapons research organization named Conflict Armament Research (CAR) released a new report that concluded that much of ISIS’s arsenal, both basic and advanced, originated from the U.S.

“Supplies of materiel into the Syrian conflict from foreign parties – notably the United States and Saudi Arabia – have indirectly allowed IS to obtain substantial quantities of anti-armor ammunition,” the CAR report stated. “These weapons include anti-tank guided weapons and several varieties of rocket with tandem warheads, which are designed to defeat modern reactive armor.”

Buzzfeed, Reuters, USA Today, and CNN are shocked. Shocked!

As ZeroHedge writes:

Even though it’s now suddenly acceptable and fashionable to admit – as does one recent BBC headline (“The Jihadis You Pay For”) – that the US and Saudi covert program in Syria fuelled the rise of ISIS and various other al-Qaeda linked terror groups, it must be remembered that only a short time ago the mainstream media openly mocked analysts and writers who dared make the connection between the West’s massive covert Syrian rebel aid programs and the al-Qaeda insurgents who so clearly benefited.

When news of the 2012 Defense Intelligence Agency report broke, which described what it called a “Salafist principality” or “an Islamic State” as a strategic asset or buffer in Syria that could be used by the Western coalition “in order to isolate the Syrian regime”, American media outlets dismissed what was labelled a “conspiracy theory” at the time in spite of the hard evidence of a US military intelligence report being made available.

The Daily Beast for example mocked what it called “The ISIS Conspiracy Theory that Ate the Web” – describing those analyzing the Pentagon intelligence document as far-right and far-left loons. This occurred even as the document was taken very seriously and analyzed in-depth by some of the world’s foremost Middle East experts and investigative journalists in foreign outlets like the London Review of Books, The Guardian, Der Spiegal , as well as RT and Al Jazeera.

Even President Donald Trump was mocked for talking about this during the 2016 election campaign. Although he used the wrong terminology – President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are the founders of ISIS – Trump was correct in his sentiment.

This is Reason No. 233241 why you can never believe or trust the mainstream media.

On a serious note, it is this type of military Keynesianism and foreign interventions that lead to groups like ISIS.
