Now the Truth Emerges: How the US Fueled the Rise of ISIS in Syria and Iraq:
(Seumas Milne, Guardian) The war on terror, that campaign without end launched 14 years ago by George Bush, is tying itself up in ever more grotesque contortions. On Monday the trial in London of a Swedish man, Bherlin Gildo, accused of terrorism in Syria, collapsed after it became clear British intelligence had been arming the same rebel groups the defendant was charged with supporting.
The prosecution abandoned the case, apparently to avoid embarrassing the intelligence services. The defence argued that going ahead withthe trial would have been an “affront to justice” when there was plenty of evidence the British state was itself providing “extensive support” to the armed Syrian opposition.
That didn’t only include the “non-lethal assistance” boasted of by the government (including body armour and military vehicles), but training, logistical support and the secret supply of “arms on a massive scale”. Reports were cited that MI6 had cooperated with the CIA on a “rat line” of arms transfers from Libyan stockpiles to the Syrian rebels in 2012 after the fall of the Gaddafi regime.
My Commentary: The Truth only “now” emerges in the mainstream media monopoly, after almost an entire year of being reported by independent news sources, while the American public sleepwalks their way into another war adventure!
I shared the following article on Facebook in September of 2014:
Made in the USA: Report Shows ISIS Using US Arms from ‘Syria Rebels’:
But, who’s really worried about inconvenient little facts like these when “educating” (brainwashing) one’s self about current events using only establishment-endorsed sources?
Is it finally time to stop being spoon-fed serving after serving of deception by the same professional liars that sold the American public WMDs and the war in Iraq? Hmm…
