In one of the recent Wikileaks emails they released the other day, we find a rather interesting explanation from Hillary Clinton about the “restructuring” of the Middle East. It smacks of Condi Rice’s “Birth Pangs of a New Middle East” so much I had to make note of it.
We all know Wikileaks is a disinfo campaign which has been used in the past to discredit a number of national leaders around the world who the deep state wish to regime change. That is not a question and this email chain between Clinton and John Podesta (then serving as Counselor to President Barack Obama from Jan. 2014 to Feb. 2015) is being promoted with a focus on a rather innocuous part of Clinton’s “eight point plan” which says Saudi Arabia and Qatar are secretly funding “ISIS” and they should stop.
“While this military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL [Isis] and other radical Sunni groups in the region.
This effort will be enhanced by the stepped up commitment in the [Kurdish Regional Government]. The Qataris and Saudis will be put in a position of balancing policy between their ongoing competition to dominate the Sunni world and the consequences of serious US pressure.” Hillary Clinton, 2014
The disinfo value of this take on the email is obvious: its Saudi Arabia and Qatar assisting “ISIS” in Syria and not the Western forces that really are. Thus is the usefulness of Wikileaks.
Though interesting in the sense that Hillary’s (and Bernie’s) plan to combat “ISIS” is to give more money and flexibility to our allies in the region (like Saudi Arabia and Qatar), the ones serving as out proxy enablers of our proxy armies, that’s not the headline that should come from this email (copied in its entirety below)
