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 […]

Rand Paul Called It: US Weapons Sent to Syria Go to Al Qaeda

US Weapons were sent to Syria to support “the good guys.” What happened next was predictable. The basic facts are as follows. Rand Paul has been warning anyone who would listen that it is insane to send US weapons into Syria because we don’t really know who we are giving them to and who will end up taking them. Naturally, the US Government went ahead and sent weapons to “moderates” in Syria. The “moderates” quit being moderates and joined up with the Al Qaeda affiliate, Al 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 […]

ISIS Is Being Fought to Create a Forever War

Perhaps I should say it is being fought in a way to continue a forever war. The CIA has allowed their skepticism to leak to the press. According to the Huffington Post, At a recent closed-door congressional briefing on the administration’s new strategy to combat the Islamic State, a top CIA official left little doubt among those in the room about the agency’s attitude toward the project. The official’s muted approach to the briefing dovetails with what senior intelligence community officials 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 […]
