Soon the world will discover HRC & Obama are at the center of the Syrian conflict, profited from the Clinton foundation, & ignored ISIS.
Qatar & Saudis donated to the Clinton foundation while HRC was Sec. State. In exchange for the donations, the CIA was sent to Syria (2011). CIA was behind a staged Arab spring uprising to attempt to topple Assad, because he was blocking the Qatar/Turkey pipeline plan.
That was Hector's series of tweets, there was an additional one in which Hector says: "ISIS formed by accident, and spiraled out of control but also provided cover for the Obama/HRC agenda of laudering bribes for the pipeline."
I just want to provide a few additional thoughts as obviously I have been talking about this for a long time and I disagree on a couple points Hector mentions (I don't believe he is being inaccurate purposefully).
First, ISIS definitely did not form by accident. The U.S. surely knew ISIS would be the result as the Council on Foreign Relations wrote back in 2012 that I often quote:
Al-Qaeda is not sacrificing its "martyrs" in Syria merely to overthrow Assad. Liberation of the Syrian people is a bonus, but the main aim is to create an Islamist state in all or part of the country. Failing that, they hope to at least establish a strategic base for the organization's remnants across the border in Iraq, and create a regional headquarters where mujahideen can enjoy a safe haven. If al-Qaeda continues to play an increasingly important role in the rebellion, then a post-Assad government will be indebted to the tribes and regions allied to the Jabhat. Failing to honor the Jabhat's future requests, assuming Assad falls, could see a continuation of conflict in Syria.
Thus far, Washington seems reluctant to weigh heavily into this issue. In May 2012, U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta publicly accepted al-Qaeda's presence in Syria (Guardian). And in July, the State Department's counterterrorism chief, Daniel Benjamin, rather incredulously suggested that the United States will simply ask the FSA to reject al-Qaeda. The unspoken political calculation among policymakers is to get rid of Assad first—weakening Iran's position in the region—and then deal with al-Qaeda later.Remember how that article opens:
The Syrian rebels would be immeasurably weaker today without al-Qaeda in their ranks. By and large, Free Syrian Army (FSA) battalions are tired, divided, chaotic, and ineffective. Feeling abandoned by the West, rebel forces are increasingly demoralized as they square off with the Assad regime's superior weaponry and professional army. Al-Qaeda fighters, however, may help improve morale. The influx of jihadis brings discipline, religious fervor, battle experience from Iraq, funding from Sunni sympathizers in the Gulf, and most importantly, deadly results. In short, the FSA needs al-Qaeda now.A new article put out by Nafeez Ahmed goes into the funding and creation of ISIS from the words of the Turkish police chief in charge of protecting ISIS "rebels":
A former senior counter-terrorism official in Turkey has blown the whistle on President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s deliberate sponsorship of the Islamic State (ISIS) as a geopolitical tool to expand Turkey’s regional influence and sideline his political opponents at home.
Ahmet Sait Yayla was Chief of the Counter-Terrorism and Operations Division of Turkish National Police between 2010 and 2012, before becoming Chief of the Public Order and Crime Prevention Division until 2014. Previously, he had worked in the Counter-Terrorism and Operations Division as a mid-level manager for his entire 20-year police tenure, before becoming Chief of Police in Ankara and Sanliurfa.
In interviews with INSURGE intelligence, Yayla exclusively revealed that he had personally witnessed evidence of high-level Turkish state sponsorship of ISIS during his police career, which eventually led him to resign. He decided to become a whistleblower after Erdogan’s authoritarian crackdown following the failed military coup in July. This is the first time that the former counter-terrorism chief has spoken on the record to reveal what he knows about Turkish government aid to Islamist terror groups.That's no accident, however I do agree with Hector they spiraled out of control which is why NATO is currently trying to herd them all back into Syria where they are supposed to be. Of course the existence, funding, arming of ISIS is far beyond what's important for Turkey, this is about what's important for NATO. Turkey is in a key position and is required for the Qatar pipeline.
So let me just remind you of the chain of events here: The west, failing to get public support for intervention in Syria, creates ISIS instead. ISIS provides the public opinion needed for intervention in Syria and provides a standing army against Assad as the FSA just wasn't up to the task.
The other part I disagree on is that Clinton & Obama are at the center of the controversy. While it's true that given current operations they would be at the center, this as Michael C. Ruppert so accurately discussed in the Truth & Lies of 9/11 is truly just a continuation of the Grand Chessboard.
No wonder the Washington Post is now trying to push the idea that "getting rid of ISIS will make the Middle East worse", eh?
