THE LEVANT NEWS — By Joshua Cook – for http://truthinmedia.com/ — Reports have confirmed that US Intelligence knew in 2012 that backing Syrian rebels would result in an ISIS victory.
A newly declassified DIA document from 2012 confirms that arming the anti-Assad rebel forces and Islamist groups would lead to the emergence of ISIS.
According to award winning journalist Dr. Nafeez Ahmed, “the secret Pentagon document provides extraordinary confirmation that the US-led coalition currently fighting ISIS, had three years ago welcomed the emergence of an extremist ‘Salafist Principality’ in the region as a way to undermine Assad.”
Below is an excerpt from the DIA report:
… there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist Principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).
War hawks like Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) have lobbied the White House to arm “moderate rebels,” but these moderate rebel groups have reportedly joined with ISIS.
As reported on the LevantReport.com, the above video entitled “US Key Man in Syria Worked Closely with ISIL and Jabhat al Nusra,” which shows raw reporting footage compiled by “Eretz Zen” channel (YouTube), is the clearest video evidence to date documenting the role of the United States in creating and sustaining ISIS on the Syrian battlefield.
Last year, Vice President Joe Biden slipped up and admitted (start at 1:30:00) that there were no “moderate rebels” and had to later apologize for stating “the biggest problems are our allies.” He admitted that Saudi Arabia and Gulf states were funding ISIS to oust Assad.
Recently on the Scott Horton show, Brad Hoff reminded listeners that the former U.S. Ambassador to Syria, Robert Ford, admitted to an Al-Monitor journalist that he knew the U.S. backed rebels fought with ISIS on front lines.
The mainstream media has ignored and refused to report on the important DIA section regarding the Syrian proxy war led by the U.S. and its allies.
TruthInMedia’s Joshua Cook recently interviewed former Senator Bob Graham about the 28 pages and the House of Saud being the main support of ISIS and international terrorism.
If Biden is correct and the Gulf states are funding ISIS, why is the U.S. not holding them accountable?
In an exclusive interview, TruthInMedia’s Joshua Cook interviewed Congressman Mark Sanford regarding U.S. foreign policy. Cook asked Congressman Sanford about his experience reading the classified 28 pages in the 9/11 report.
Sanford told Cook, “It cements my belief in the importance of government being transparent about what they do and why they do it.”
“I think that for people to trust their government, they may agree or may disagree with the decision, but they want to know the why, and too often people are told just trust us, it’s not appropriate or you don’t have the capacity to know – that’s just not true, said Sanford.
“Open and free governments are built upon transparency so that people can look under the hood, and say I agree or I disagree, and consequently hold people accountable, and when things are hidden people can’t do that…These kind of things for me reinforce my belief in the importance of freedom resting on openness and transparency in the way the government conducts its business.”
