CNN originally had up some audio that had been leaked of John Kerry talking about using force in Syria.
But there was part of the audio that was not made public. The entire audio has subsequently been taken down by CNN. The part that was never made public, however, has been leaked. In it, John Kerry admits that the United States saw ISIS growing, which he referred to as Daesh. But instead of doing anything about it, Kerry says the Obama Administration calculated that its growth would lead the Assad regime in Syria to the negotiating table.
Instead, Kerry says, Assad turned to Vladimir Putin for help. Now, I have to tell you, anyone with half a brain would have realized the Assad regime would turn to Russia. The Assad family has always turned to Moscow for help. It is insane that our government was surprised by that. It is also highly irresponsible.
What's real and/or fake here?
John Kerry admits that the United States saw ISIS growing, which he referred to as Daesh. But instead of doing anything about it, Kerry says the Obama Administration sent john McCain to meet with ISIS and arranged to have weapons, money and training supplied to ISIS under the cover of assisting "moderate rebels".
A leaked audio of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's meeting with Syrian Opposition members at the Dutch Mission of the United Nations was released by Wikileaks this week, exposing a 35 minute conversation that was omitted by CNN.
The audio was originally leaked to NY Times in late September. CNN, which is the source (CNN link) for the audio posted here, has since chosen to remove it. www.almasdarnews.com...
