U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency Head: “It Was A Willful Decision [By America] To” “Support An Insurgency That Had Salafists, Al Qaeda And The Muslim Brotherhood”

An internal Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) document produced recently shows that the U.S. knew that the actions of “the West, Gulf countries and Turkey” in Syria might create a terrorist group like ISIS and an Islamic caliphate.

While the powers-that-be have tried to downplay the significance of the document, the former head of the DIA – Lieutenant General Michael Flynn – just confirmed its importance.

By any measure, Flynn was a top-level American military commander. Flynn served as:

  • The Director of the U.S. Intelligence Agency
  • The Director of intelligence for Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), the main military agency responsible for targeting Al-Qaeda and other Islamic terrorists
  • The Commander of the Joint Functional Component Command for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance
  • The Chair of the Military Intelligence Board
  • Assistant director of national intelligence

Flynn confirmed the authenticity of the document in a new interview, and said:

[Interviewer] So the administration turned a blind eye to your analysis?

[Flynn] I don’t know that they turned a blind eye, I think it was a decision. I think it was a willful decision.

[Interviewer] A willful decision to support an insurgency that had Salafists, Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood?

[Flynn] It was a willful decision to do what they’re doing.

Background here.

Postscript: We did the same thing in Libya.

    American foreign policy in the middle east is completely insane, a sham, in disarray, a failure, a complete and utter unmitigated disaster.

    Repeating the same behaviour expecting a different outcome is the classic definition of madness.

    Start to hold those developing, fostering and spreading this madness to account and just maybe the US can regain some sanity.

    He also adds in regards to the Salafist groups, which he admits the US was aiding, and knowledge of them: “I will tell you, it goes before 2012 … While we were still in Iraq … it was very clear what we were going to face. Very clear what we were going to face.”

    A partially-declassified DIA report brings disturbing details about US support for jihadists in Syria. What kind of game is the US government playing in the Middle East?


  • Aug 5, 2015 British Special Forces “Dressing Up” As ISIS…What Could Go Wrong?

    The “elite” British SAS special forces are dispatching over 120 troops to Syria to dress up as ISIS fighters and attack Syrian targets. In today’s Thought For The Day, James looks back at a couple of the lowlights of the bumbling SAS forces and examines the 2005 incident where the SAS was caught in Basra dressing up as Arabs and shooting Iraqis in order to fuel ethnic tensions in the country.

    The American people don’t care.

  • May 24, 2015 Newly-Declassified U.S. Government Documents: The West Supported the Creation of ISIS.

    Judicial Watch has – for many years – obtained sensitive U.S. government documents through freedom of information requests and lawsuits. The government just produced documents to Judicial Watch in response to a freedom of information suit which show that the West has long supported ISIS. The documents were written by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency on August 12, 2012 … years before ISIS burst onto the world stage.

    the Media, well trained effective propaganda, or rhetoric of intimidation. fix this phenomena and things will eventually improve.

  • This only gets better when the original video has been deleted by the ministry of truth.

    • disqus_eSwJDGJ7te

      Video is unavailable. WTF!

      • Suspicious isn’t it?

      • You get that, many good video’s are taken down.

        There’s the way back time machine or perhaps the opportunity to download and release them again over time.
