Did Obama Arm Islamic State Killers?

(It’s almost like those conspiracy theorists have been right all these years. Who would have thunk it?)

by Daniel Lazare from Consortium News

Did Barack Obama arm ISIS? The question strikes many people as absurd, if not offensive. How can anyone suggest something so awful about a nice guy like the former president? But a stunning report by an investigative group known as Conflict Armament Research (CAR) leaves us little choice but to conclude that he did.

CAR, based in London and funded by Switzerland and the European Union, spent three years tracing the origin of some 40,000 pieces of captured ISIS arms and ammunition. Its findings, made public last week, are that much of it originated in former Warsaw Pact nations in Eastern Europe, where it was purchased by United States and Saudi Arabia and then diverted, in violation of various rules and treaties, to Islamist rebels seeking to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The rebels, in turn, somehow caused or allowed the equipment to be passed on to Islamic State, which is also known by the acronyms ISIS or ISIL, or just the abbreviation IS.

This is damning stuff since it makes it clear that rather than fighting ISIS, the U.S. government was feeding it…

What is Missing from the Story of the al-Rawda Mosque Attack? I’ll Tell You

by Scott Creighton

“President” Sisi (actually a dictator installed by the Obama administration after the real president (elected) was deposed because he refused to lock his people into a lifetime of debt servitude with another IMF loan) says the Egyptian military will “avenge our martyrs” in the wake of the terrorist attack on the al-Rawda mosque in the town of Bir al-Abed, Sinai Peninsula. Approximately 300 people were killed (27 children) when a bomb went off inside the mosque and as survivors fled into the street, they were gunned down.

“This act will only increase our will and unity. The police and military will avenge our martyrs and restore peace and security. We will respond with brute force to combat these terrorists and deviants … This is an attempt to deter us from fighting terrorism and to destroy our will, but we are steadfast, and I say to all Egyptians, the battle you are fighting is the most honourable.” our dictator in Egypt

Keeping true to his word, the dictator (who killed thousands of protesters after his U.S.-backed coup in 2013 (here and here) (You can also see this work I did REAL TIME as the attacks were taking place in early 2013)  and then boasted about imprisoning 10,000 members of the opposition political party) unleashed bombing attacks against “terrorist” positions in Sinai right after the attack. Casualty numbers are not yet available from those strikes and it will be hard to get accurate numbers of casualties in the region due to the fact that al Sisi has made reporting from the area illegal since he was installed… a year before “ISIS” was even created.

Journalists, including from state-sponsored outlets, have not been allowed to report from North Sinai in the last few years.” BBC

The claim we are seeing over and over again in the MSM is that “ISIS™” is responsible for this attack. They say that since the defeat of “ISIS™” in Syria, the group has spread out to other hot spot locations around the globe in an effort to take their failed caliphate model elsewhere in hopes of greener pastures. That’s the story anyway from the majority of the complicit media and especially from the CIA’s Washington Post:

The brazen attack on worshipers at an Egyptian mosque early Friday showed the ability of the Islamic State’s regional affiliates to inflict death and exact revenge for the loss of the group’s main enclaves in Iraq and Syria.

There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the attack on the al-Rawda mosque in Egypt’s sparsely populated Sinai Peninsula, but there were many reasons to suspect that the Islamic State was responsible. Washington Post

Notice that little disclaimer in there? Here is another:

No group claimed responsibility for the attack, but it marks a major escalation in a region where for the past three years Egyptian security forces have battled an Islamic State insurgency that has killed hundreds of police and soldiers. The Guardian

“No group claims responsibility…” BUUUUUT... they are going to push the narrative just the same.

Don’t worry all you establishment apologist trolls out there… I’m sure Mossad asset Rita Katz and maybe Paul Joseph Watson will gin up a video of some British actor playing the role of an “ISIS™” terrorist claiming responsibility any day now.

You know, according to the official narrative here, maybe it wasn’t such a wise idea for the U.S. military to keep letting “ISIS™” terrorists escape from various Syrian cities in convoys of trucks or chartered buses after all.

just sayin

Anyway… the official story here is all about “ISIS™” once again but, as is often the case when “ISIS™” shows up to help a government justify attacks on one group or another, that’s not the whole story.

Let’s take a look at the history of both the “ISIS™” Sinai Province group (Nov. of 2014) and the Bedouin Sinai insurgency which has been going on in this round of conflict since 2011 and beyond.

Britain’s Islamic State Fighters Are Returning Home Without Punishment

Terrorists who traveled to Syria are allowed to walk the British streets and could even have their rent paid by taxpayers.

(Of course they are. The 5-Eyes contracted them out and sent them there as destabilization contractors, proxy warriors. I’m surprised the damn Queen didn’t have a ticker-tape parade for them. And of course they are getting benefits. That’s called “PAYMENT FOR SERVICES RENDERED”)

by Kieren Underwood from The Trumpet

Here are startling figures. The British government believes up to 850 Britons left the country to fight with the Islamic State. Over 400 of them have returned home. Of them, only 54 have been convicted of crimes. The rest have been left free to “reintegrate.”

If this seems crazy, here’s the rationale as described by the Telegraph: “So far, only a small proportion have been prosecuted and counterterrorism officials have said it can be difficult to find evidence that they committed crimes in the war zones of Syria and Iraq.”

US Choppers Transfer Daesh Commanders From Syria’s Mayadeen , Reports

(This being the second time I have heard reports of US forces airlifting “ISIS” to safety. Other times we just let them drive their trucks out of a city they destroyed on route to another or we book buses for them and the innocent hostages we let em take so Russia wont bomb them.)

from Muraselon (Syrian reporters)

Several sources have told RIA Novosti about the alleged transfer of Daesh commanders by “US military aviation” from a Syrian town in an unknown direction.

US helicopters have transferred Daesh commanders from the town of al-Mayadin before the launch of the Syrian army’s operation, eyewitnesses told RIA Novosti.

“American military aviation first made a maneuver in the area […] near a Mayadin farm. Then [ the aviation] launched an airstrike, we tried to hide and saw several US helicopters. There were foreign Daesh commanders on the ground, who were waiting for them next to their headquarters… The helicopters took them outside of Mayadin,” a local shepherd, Muhammad Awad Hussein, told RIA Novosti.

He further said that he allegedly saw “US aviation… first a sound from it, then a massive strike that was followed by the US helicopters’ flight and transportation of Daesh leaders after which the airstrikes ceased.”

According to the 79-year-old man he had served in the Syrian army and can distinguish American aviation…

3 Major Problems in Criminal Complaint Against Sayfullo Saipov and Lionel Nation’s Orwellian Idea

The invisible black bag, the note that doesn’t say what we are told it says and the mightily convenient 2nd cell phone with all that crucial “ISIS” evidence. Couple that with calls from “alternative” commenters like Lionel Nation for televised video “confessions” ala 1984 and you got yourself a real winner with this case.
