Obama’s Syrian Policy, Through the Looking Glass

Accuracy in Media

President Obama’s assertion that the Islamic State was a “JV” team demonstrates how he arrogantly ignored the possibility that this jihadist terror group could eventually threaten the United States. But what the press will not report is that President Obama is at least partially responsible for the arming of ISIS.

A recent article by Jerome Corsi of WorldNetDaily sheds further light on how former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama worked to actively arm Syrian rebels, ultimately supporting groups that would coalesce into the Islamic State.

“…[I]t’s become increasingly clear that President Obama and his secretary of state at the time, Hillary Clinton in 2011, armed the Free Syrian Army rebels in an effort to topple the regime of Bashar al-Assad, mirroring a strategy already under way in Libya to help al-Qaida-affiliated militia overthrow Moammar Gadhafi,” writes Corsi. “A consequence of the strategy was the emergence of ISIS out of the loosely coordinated Free Syrian Army coalition as well as the disastrous Benghazi attack in which a U.S. ambassador was murdered.”

In other words, Mrs. Clinton and Obama are at least partially responsible for the current Middle East chaos, the death of four brave Americans at the hands of terrorists in Benghazi, and Islamic State-inspired homegrown terrorism. In Syria, the civil war has cost 470,000 lives as of last February, according to The New York Times, a half million by most estimates today. But don’t look to the Times or other news organizations to blame President Obama or former presidential candidate Clinton for the death toll.

How many more Lies are we Really Willing to Accept from our Politicians?

by WALLACE S. BRUSCHWEILER, WILLIAM PALUMBO

 

The lies from this administration are well-known and numerous.  Among only some of the most infamous: If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.  ISIS is a non-threat, the “JV team.”  The economy is in great shape after years of sustained recovery, and unemployment is at a de minimis 5%.  Daily life over the past seven and a half years and the six o’clock news will relieve you of these fictions.

The Barack Hussein Obama administration’s deceit is deployed deliberately to assuage our deepest fears concerning the state of our country and the world.  The administration’s disinformation campaign will continue at least until the election, meaning that the citizens have seven more months of utter falsehoods whose origin is their own White House.

In recent days, another three lies have made the headlines on television and other media outlets:

A Global JV Team???

ISIS “has become the preeminent terrorist threat because of its self-described caliphate in Syria and Iraq, its branches and emerging branches in other countries, and its increasing ability to direct and inspire attacks against a wide range of targets around the world.” ~ James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence (DNI)

DNI Clapper told the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) on February 10, 2016 that the Intelligence Community’s Worldwide Threat Assessment states the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has become the “preeminent terrorist threat.”  Furthermore, ISIS and its emerging branches in at least eight other countries are increasing their “ability to direct and inspire attacks against a wide range of targets around the world.”

At the same hearing Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Director Marine Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart testified that ISIS likely will “attempt to direct attacks on the U.S. homeland in 2016,” and that the caliphate is infiltrating the refugees fleeing the ISIS mayhem in Iraq and Syria. (Remember that FBI Director Janes Comey informed us that they cannot vet these refugees. Hmmmmmm….)
