We should not expect the truth from the corrupted establishment who fiercely fought Bernie Sanders, for example. We should expect it from someone who supported him. Indeed, the Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who resigned as DNC vice-chair on February 28, 2016, in order to endorse Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination, and actually was the first female US Representative to endorse Sanders, 'dared' to introduce bill so that the US to stop arming terrorists!

Her words left no doubt of who is behind the dirty war in Syria and the chaos in the Middle East:

Mr. speaker, under US law, it is illegal for you, or me, or any American, to provide any type of assistance to Al-Qaeda, ISIS, or other terrorist groups. If we broke this law, we'll be thrown in jail.

Yet the US government has been violating this law for years, directly and indirectly supporting allies and partners of groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIS, with money, weapons, intelligence and other support in their fight to overthrow the Syrian government.

A recent NY Times article, confirmed that rebel groups supported by the US 'have entered into battlefield alliances with the affiliate of al-Qaeda in Syria, formerly known as al Nusra.' The Wall Street Journal reports that rebel groups are 'doubling down on their alliance with al-Qaeda'. This alliance has rendered the phrase 'moderate rebels' meaningless.

We must stop this madness.We must stop arming terrorists.

I'm introducing the Stop Arming Terrorists act today, to prohibit taxpayer dollars for being used to support terrorists.

I thought the Clintons were involved in selling the arms to Terrorists through their Foundation, including the DNC, and Obama. Someone is making a lot of money off of this "war"

In a just world, those that approve and undertake illegal acts, should be tried for crimes. With no-one including the president above the law. The ability for the president to pardon the guilty, should also be revoked.

Now how does a group of 318 million people force their will on the president and the senate.

As I read this, I could only ask myself one question; or maybe two.

Have any of the members of the House of representatives or the Senate EVER read the content of the Patriot Act or the NDAA which was past just a few years ago ? If they had the would know that they, as well as most of the rest of our government, have been in open violation of the laws against providing aid to known terrorists for a long time. I also wonder who we can turn to in order to get all those involved with this mess locked up for violating the very laws which they have passed ?

I am afraid we would have to spend a lot of tax payers money building a prison to hold them all. Of course, the current prison system would be more than they deserve; if they were to be treated as the rest of us.

Ummm...By force of ballot...and when that doesn't work...by force of protest and redress of grievance...and when that doesn't work...by force of arms...

All as provided by the constitution

Of course they are. They will continue to do so. Anyone that has paid attention to the Military industrial complex will know that for the last 50 years or so they have pushed their own private agenda and the government turns a blind eye to it. Why? Because war is a for profit scheme, and the M.I.C. doesn't have to make policy, just push weapons.

Actually in most of the 51 ODD CIA coups since WW2 its a democratically elected leader that is overturned and a dictator installed.

congress shoulders the blame for this, they are the only ones who are allowed by the constitution to appropriate money and decide who gets that money.
congress either knew that they were approving money to fund terrorists or they were derelict in their duties by providing funding without knowing what it would be used for.

The info and indication about this been around for years. Still doesn't mean people will believe it due to their own convictions.

Both organizations, according to University of Ottawa extremism specialist Kamran Bokhari, share the common goal of instituting an Islamic state governed by sharia law. Further, Bokhari argues, the real reason the U.S. opposes designating them as terrorists is because they are proxy groups supported by American allies Saudi Arabia and Turkey. Hence, it has nothing to do with concerns about the ceasefire.

There's no clear answer as to how much money ISIS has, but reports say the group is bringing in more than $1 million a day. If U.S. officials want to squeeze ISIS dry, they will have to take certain steps now to cut off those donors but also help opposing forces in Iraq and Syria wrest back control of the local economy -- a process that could take years.
