Weaponizing “Humanitarian Aid” to Syria:

Deceitful Cover for U.S. Support of Al Qaeda and Excuse to Violate Syrian Sovereignty and UN Charter

The CEO, David Miliband—a Blairite who served as Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs in the UK—is well compensated at more than $1 million per year and, thus, we can be sure the IRC will keep on message with the U.S. State Department.

Humanitarian aid is big business and has been politically weaponized. While there are many well-meaning people working hard, there are also political agendas at work.

Russia, China and other nations in the UN Security Council may veto authorization of the Bab al-Hawa crossing in 6 or 12 months because it is not what most people assume.

Rick Sterling is an investigative journalist based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
