  • Pentagon report predicted rise of ISIS

    It's just amazing how evidence is accruing for the conspiracy theories:

    Source: https://medium.com/insurge-intelligence/secret-pentagon-report-reveals-west-saw-isis-as-strategic-asset-b99ad7a29092[/cite

    Among the batch of documents obtained by Judicial Watch through a federal lawsuit, released earlier this week, is a US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) document then classified as “secret,” dated 12th August 2012.

    The DIA provides military intelligence in support of planners, policymakers and operations for the US Department of Defense and intelligence community.

    So far, media reporting has focused on the evidence that the Obama administration knew of arms supplies from a Libyan terrorist stronghold to rebels in Syria...

    The secret Pentagon document thus 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, and block off the strategic expansion of Iran. Crucially, Iraq is labeled as an integral part of this “Shia expansion.”

    The establishment of such a “Salafist Principality” in eastern Syria, the DIA document asserts, is “exactly” what the “supporting powers to the [Syrian] opposition want.” Earlier on, the document repeatedly describes those “supporting powers” as “the West, Gulf countries, and Turkey.”

    Further on, the document reveals that Pentagon analysts were acutely aware of the dire risks of this strategy, yet ploughed ahead anyway.

    The establishment of such a “Salafist Principality” in eastern Syria, it says, would create “the ideal atmosphere for AQI to return to its old pockets in Mosul and Ramadi.” Last summer, ISIS conquered Mosul in Iraq, and just this month has also taken control of Ramadi.

    Such a quasi-state entity will provide:

    “… a renewed momentum under the presumption of unifying the jihad among Sunni Iraq and Syria, and the rest of the Sunnis in the Arab world against what it considers one enemy. ISI could also declare an Islamic State through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, which will create grave danger in regards to unifying Iraq and the protection of territory.”

    I'll never understand why there needs to be an "official" document to prove something that requires just a little common sense. US has a history rife with funding, arming and creating radical Muslim terrorist groups and then bellyaching about the problem later on as justification for more military enterprises. I think the term is: problem, reaction, solution.

      Well, the nationalists skeptics always demand more conclusive evidence.

        I personally don't believe it's skepticism than just outright denial. Denial is a whole different psychology, thus it doesn't matter how much conclusive evidence you present. Note how little attention this thread gets as evidence of this.

          How do you know how little attention this thread has been getting?

          Anyway, looking at the years since World War II, does it not seem that the USFG has been practicing perpetual war? Rather expensive, as far as taxpayers are concerned, to boot.

            I meant that in the future tense.

              Attention in terms of replies on a highly controversial subject.

              Empire gotta empire. And for quite some time the gains had outweighed costs - at least for those in power.

                The document also recommends the creation of “safe havens under international sheltering, similar to what transpired in Libya when Benghazi was chosen as the command centre for the temporary government.”

                In Libya, anti-Gaddafi rebels, most of whom were al-Qaeda affiliated militias, were protected by NATO ‘safe havens’ (aka ‘no fly zones’).
                This is treason under any and all definitions of treason.
