Look at the above photo of ISIS and tell me what you see. I see a hodge-podge group of individuals who are extremely unorganized. While they are all wearing black, some are in white tennis shoes, which look completely stupid, and some are in black. Some are holding their weapons up and some down. Now look at the next photo:
Getting better...Some have new boots...US military boots. And they seem a little more organized. They even have their fingers off the triggers...what good students they have been. And now, this photo released yesterday when we heard the news of the 26 year old Jordanian pilot being burned to death:
Wow...would you look at that? Nice new uniforms...new weapons...and very trained. So, where are they getting the money for all this US made stuff? Oh, that's too easy...Obama leaves a very recognizable stench on everything he touches. It smells like sulphur...just like his father the devil. But I digress.
So where are these terrorists getting the money and the weapons? That's too easy. From you, dear taxpayer. See last year, we began funding the Syrian rebels in an attempt to overthrow Assad. We gave them money, weapons and we even trained them. But now, these Syrian opposition forces, known as the Free Syrian Army (FSA) have pledged services to the Islamic State, or ISIS if you will. The FSA has handed over their weapons to ISIS in large numbers.
The Obama administration delivered weapons, supplies and CIA-sponsored training to the Free Syrian Army. United States intelligence analysts estimate that the United States has had a hand in training as many 20,000 FSA "rebels". We have also reportedly provided them with weapons such as rockets and TOW anti-tank missiles. Those were supplied through back channels in Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
In April of 2013, Secretary of State John Kerry attended the "Friends of Syria" meeting in Istanbul. There, he announced that the US would double its "non-lethal" military aid to Syria's rebels...the FSA. He announced a $123 million defense aid package. Kerry stated that the new military supplies would go beyond the then current provisions of food rations and medical kits but would not elaborate further.
"We want to see the coalition lead the way by ramping up its ability in order to be able to provide assistance, deliver services and respond to the needs of the Syrian people," Kerry said.The Syrian National Coalition said it firmly rejected "all forms of terrorism" and vowed to guarantee that any weapons it receives will not "fall into the wrong hands."
Before this $123 million aid package, the US had already sent an estimated $117 million to the FSA. In June of 2014, Obama asked Congress to authorize $500 million to provide US military training and equipment to the Syrian rebels. A spokeswoman for the National Security Council said that the new funds would "help defend the Syrian people, stabilize areas under opposition control, facilitate the provision of essential services, counter terrorist threats, and promote conditions for a negotiated settlement."
In September of 2014, the House approved this $500 million. Nancy Pelosi was all for it. Stating:
"It is not pleasant. It is not easy. It's hard, but it really is necessary for the House to approve this."I guess we had to fund it before we could find out what we bought. John Boehner, weak minded alcoholic that he is, approved of the funding. Then Obama had this to say:
"Today's vote is another step closer to having the authorization to train and equip vetted elements of the moderate Syrian opposition so they can defend themselves against, and ultimately push back on, ISIL forces in Syria, while creating the conditions for the political solution necessary to solve Syria's crisis once and for all."
Oh, I'm sure the rebels were quite vetted indeed. Only give to those who will ultimately give to Obama's precious terrorists. Those same evil bastards that would chop his head off for being gay. The very ones he loves so much.
So now we know exactly where ISIS has gotten the funds for all of their new toys. Straight from our wallet. And now that Jordan has retaliated against the little goat lovers, I wonder what dear leader will try to do to them?
Time will certainly tell...
