Trained Moderates Turn over U.S. Arms, Vehicles to Al Qaeda in Syria

We trained moderates to fight in Syria and they gave terrorists our weapons and trucks as soon as they entered the country. Here is another chapter in the story we have been reading for years, as reported this time in The Telegraph, “US-trained Division 30 rebels ‘betrayed US and hand weapons over to al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria’” Pentagon-trained rebels in Syria are reported to have betrayed their American backers and handed their weapons over to al-Qaeda in Syria immediately after re-entering Read more […]

New Book Provides Further Evidence US made ISIS

The US made ISIS in order to destroy Syria’s secular dictatorship, without caring about the Christians or others they knew would be raped, tortured, and murdered. I’ve already posted about how the US made ISIS by funding terrorists. We have seen how officials try to evade obvious questions when they are posed by reporters (which they do all too seldom). But now there is a new book out which documents more of the actions involved in taking a declining group, Al Qaeda in Iraq, and nourishing Read more […]

CIA Cash Went to Al Qaeda

New York Times reports that CIA cash wound up going into Al Qaeda hands. But there is more to the story. When I saw this story in the New York Times, I assumed it was going to involve the basic ways the CIA has been funding terrorists, including Al Qaeda (whether directly or not, before 9/11, I don’t know for sure), since the late seventies. But no, it is about one small incompetent bit of terrorist financing, not intentional financing: “CIA Cash Ended Up in Coffers of Al Qaeda.” In Read more […]

AP: U.S. Working with Syrian Terrorists

They hid it under a misleading headline, but the Associated Press admits the U.S. is sponsoring Jihadists and Syrian terrorists. My thanks go to “We Are Change” for catching this: The Associated Press headline sounds innocuous: “Rebels push forward in southern Syria.” Syrian rebels backed by the United States are making their biggest gains yet south of the capital Damascus, capturing a string of towns from government forces and aiming to carve out a swath of territory leading to the Read more […]

How the U.S. Armed Al Qaeda Again

By arming “moderates” who then surrendered to radical Islamists, the U.S. armed Al Qaeda. You know, we’ve got to stop electing Ivory Tower Ivy League idiots to office. Give me someone from the University of Nebraska or Oklahoma—in other words, people who understand reality, rather than failed “perfect world” theories. Let’s see, we train “moderate” jihadis, give them advanced weaponry, then—amazing to tell—those “moderates” immediately turn around and “surrender” to the most vile Read more […]

Obama Bombed Made-Up Terrorists

When we all suddenly heard about the bombing of the Khorosan group, it sounded like these were made-up terrorists. Now the National Review has gone public with the suspicion in Andrew McCarthy’s editorial, “The Khorosan Group Does Not Exist.” And he adds that the Sunni Muslim partnership that is supposed to assist the U.S. in fighting ISIS does not really exist either. Finally, the story goes, Sunni governments were acting decisively to take Islam back from the “un-Islamic” elements Read more […]

The So-Called Syrian Moderates Work with the Extremists

Yesterday, I heard constant stories about how the Obama Administration wants to “work with” the so-called Syrian moderates—in other words, to arm and fund them. I have written about this several times. It is an idea that is proffered not only by Democrats but by Republicans. As Bob Allen recently wrote, it is a crazy and dangerous idea that can only put us in more danger from extremists with American-financed weapons. Nevertheless, others keep pretending that the weapons and money can Read more […]

If Allah Is So Great, Why Does He Have to Resort to Violence?

So Muslims say Allah is so great. But why do people in the so-called “Islamic State” convert to Islam? Typically, it’s because a knife is put to their throat, or a gun to their head. Allah is obviously a pretty pathetic excuse for a “god” if this is the kind of “conversions” he accepts. Contrast that with this interesting summary of a study on why Muslims come to Jesus Christ, and become Christians. Since a reader had posted a query as to why Roman Catholics were not participating in Read more […]

Bombing Iraq: Did You Hear the One About How U.S. Intervention Saves Live?

So we are now back, bombing Iraq, targeting a new/old enemy? On the level of God’s rule of history, this may be His answer to the prayers of the Christians being tortured, abused, exiled, and murdered by the Islamic state in Northern Iraq. I invite you to join me in praying to God that the Christians and also all innocent civilians are rescued from these disgusting butchers. (This includes a prayer that somehow God give miraculous selectivity to the bombs and missiles so that civilians are not Read more […]

France Helps Christians Fleeing Islam

France helps Christians? I apologize for the bad things I’ve said about the French. OK, I don’t apologize for criticizing their insane economic policies and ideas, but… for any general aspersions I’ve cast upon them. [See also, “Sudan Christian Woman Rescued by Vatican & Italian Government; US State Department MIA.”] From the website of Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty: “France Offers Asylum to Iraqi Christians.” France says it is ready to welcome Christians from northern Read more […]

The Terrorist Threat is Worse Now than Before Our Wars

From the Christian Science Monitor, we read about the terrorist threat: “US is no safer after 13 years of war, a top Pentagon official says.” The nation is no safer after 13 years of war, warns a top US military official who leads one of the nation’s largest intelligence organizations. “We have a whole gang of new actors out there that are far more extreme than Al Qaeda,” says Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, which employs some 17,000 American intelligence Read more […]

Barack Obama Did Not Ignore the Islamic State; He and Congress Grew It!

The headline at Drudge Report last night said, “Obama administration knew Islamic State was growing but did little to counter it…” So I clicked on it and came to this McClatchy report: “ Like the rest of the world, the U.S. government appeared to have been taken aback last month when Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, fell to an offensive by jihadis of the Islamic State that triggered the collapse of five Iraqi army divisions and carried the extremists to the threshold of Baghdad. A review Read more […]
