Pentagon report predicted West’s support for Islamist rebels would create ISIS
Anti-ISIS coalition knowingly sponsored violent extremists to ‘isolate’ Assad



A declassified secret US government document obtained by the conservative public interest law firm, Judicial Watch, shows that Western governments deliberately allied with al-Qaeda and other Islamist extremist groups to topple Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad.

The document reveals that in coordination with the Gulf states and Turkey, the West intentionally sponsored violent Islamist groups to destabilize Assad, and that these “supporting powers” desired the emergence of a “Salafist Principality” in Syria to “isolate the Syrian regime.”

According to the newly declassified US document, the Pentagon foresaw the likely rise of the ‘Islamic State’ as a direct consequence of this strategy, and warned that it could destabilize Iraq. Despite anticipating that Western, Gulf state and Turkish support for the “Syrian opposition” — which included al-Qaeda in Iraq — could lead to the emergence of an ‘Islamic State’ in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the document provides no indication of any decision to reverse the policy of support to the Syrian rebels. On the contrary, the emergence of an al-Qaeda affiliated “Salafist Principality” as a result is described as a strategic opportunity to isolate Assad.

Dozens of intelligence analysts reportedly claim assessments of ISIS were altered


Dozens of intelligence analysts working at the U.S. military's Central Command (CENTCOM) have complained that their reports on ISIS and the Nusra Front in Syria were inappropriately altered by senior officials, according to a published report.

The Daily Beast reported late Wednesday that more than 50 analysts had supported a complaint to the Pentagon that the reports had been changed to make the terror groups seem weaker than the analysts believe they really are. Fox News confirmed last month that the Defense Department's inspector general was investigating the initial complaint, which the New York Times reported was made by a civilian employee of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).

The assessments in question are prepared for several U.S. policymakers, including President Obama.




Benghazigate, now ISISgate. this chain of activity for years to present, proves US's intimate, intrinsic 'complicity' with ISIS.

question is: were they so blind and uninformed about the circumstances in syria but nevertheless messed around there
or was this all planned?

either answer is terrifying.

What's funny is that we had people, like Ron Paul, talking about the "blowback" we would experience if we continued to meddle in Middle East affairs.

We've seen that come to fruition and now it appears that we may have nurtured that blowback to do our dirty deeds.

Well if people were as 'informed' as they think they are. They would know it's not the first time.

And there is no finer example of this is when the west teamed up with the Peshwar Seven, and the Tehran Eight in the 80s to oust the Soviets.

We also cannot forget about the 1953 Iranian Coup in which the US and the UK overthrew their legitimately elected government.
