The Pentagon and CIA Are Arming Opposing Sides in Syria

April 15, 2016 in News by RBN Staff


Tim Brown, writing in The Constitution, documents what many of us have known all along… The U.S. government has been playing both sides in Syria by arming Islamic jihadists. Now it’s being reported that CIA-armed militias in Syria are shooting Pentagon-armed militias. Brown quotes The Los Angeles Times reports:

Syrian militias armed by different parts of the U.S. war machine have begun to fight each other on the plains between the besieged city of Aleppo and the Turkish border, highlighting how little control U.S. intelligence officers and military planners have over the groups they have financed and trained in the bitter five-year-old civil war.

The fighting has intensified over the last two months, as CIA-armed units and Pentagon-armed ones have repeatedly shot at each other while maneuvering through contested territory on the northern outskirts of Aleppo, U.S. officials and rebel leaders have confirmed.

In mid-February, a CIA-armed militia called Fursan al Haq, or Knights of Righteousness, was run out of the town of Marea, about 20 miles north of Aleppo, by Pentagon-backed Syrian Democratic Forces moving in from Kurdish-controlled areas to the east.

Brown goes on: “Of course, the people elected to represent the people attempt to justify what is going on.  Rep. Adam Schiff(14%) the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, claims, “It is part of the three-dimensional chess that is the Syrian battlefield.”

“Somehow, I’m wondering why America is involved in a chess game in Syria. Doesn’t chess imply there are only two players? This is not a game and it is something our forefathers warned us not to get entangled in.”

Tim Brown to the punchline:  “What none of them are mentioning is that because of U.S. involvement in Syria, international conflict has escalated. First, we saw that Russian President Vladimir Putin came in and knocked out many of the U.S. supported Islamic terrorists, which considering that the Obama administration has armed, funded and trained the Syrian jihadists who later became the Islamic State, we should add this to the list of treason of Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah, along with any representatives who voted for it, including Senator John McCain.”
