Released Defense Intelligence Agency emails from August 2012 reveal that the Obama administration knowingly armed, trained and funded Al-Qaeda and ISIS and expected a Caliphate to be set up in Eastern Syria.
Former CIA officer Philip Giraldi, who served in the CIA for 18 years, wrote in a US magazine that the agency was actively assisting Syrian rebels in the region, and that unmarked planes had been used to fly in small arms seized from toppled Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. According to him, the arms were distributed to Syrian anti-government fighters from a US airbase in Adana (Incirlik), southern Turkey, near the Syrian border.
According to the London Times, more than 400 tonnes shipment arrived in Syria from Benghazi.
The arms delivered into Adana (Incirlik) airbase are then taken across the border to or by ISIS and Al-Qaeda terrorists operating in the North of Syria.
While speculation was rife that just like the CIA-funded al Qaeda had been used as a facade by the US to achieve its own geopolitical and national interests over the past two decades, so ISIS was nothing more than al Qaeda 2.0, there was no actual evidence of just this.
According to investigative reports, the leaked document reveals that in coordination with the Gulf states and Turkey, the West intentionally sponsored violent Islamist groups to destabilize Assad, despite anticipating that doing so could lead to the emergence of an ‘Islamic State’ in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
