US Admits Paying Terrorists For Services Rendered In Syria
By Brandon Turbeville
June 30, 2015 "Information
When researchers such as myself have reported that the United States is funding
al-Qaeda, Nusra, ISIS and other related terror organizations in Syria, we were
not kidding. Still,
despite the fact that even the
U.S. government itself has
admitted that it was
directly and indirectly through Saudi Arabia,
the suggestion was met with disbelief, ridicule, or either entirely ignored.
Now, however, the United States government has admitted that it funds terrorists
on the ground in Syria yet again, this time
placing an individual dollar amount on the assistance provided.
According to the Pentagon, Syrian “rebels” being trained and “vetted” by the
United States are receiving “compensation” to the tune of anywhere between $250
to $400 per month to act as America’s proxy forces in the Middle East.
Reuters reports that the payment levels were confirmed by the Pentagon and
also that the Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter and Navy Commander Elissa Smith
both separately admitted the fact that these “new” terrorists are receiving a
Reuters also reported on alleged obstacles the Pentagon claims it is facing
regarding the ability to train the death squad volunteers due to a lack of
ability to “vet” them appropriately as well as a bizarre incident where fighters
abandon the mission after having received training from the US military. The
reason provided by the Pentagon was that the fighters did not want to sign a
contract to avoid fighting Assad. But, in the same report, the Pentagon states
that there was no such contract – only one requiring them to “respect human
rights” and “the rule of law,” so the reason provided for the disappearance of
these fighters lacks legitimacy. One can only speculate as to where these
“trainees” disappeared to.
Of course, “human rights” and the “rule of law” have never been
concerns before, even as the United States has funded, armed, trained, and
directed jihadists on the ground from the very beginning of the Syrian crisis.
has there been any concern over the
presence of “moderate” rebels that have
never actually existed in Syria. After all, it should be remembered that the
United States own
Defense Intelligence Agency was recently forced to release and declassify
documents which admitted that not only did the US know that the “rebellion” was
made up of al-Qaeda and Nusra forces but that these organizations and similar
groups were attempting to create a “Salafist principality” in the east of Syria
and West of Iraq. The DIA docs also show that the US was supporting all of these
efforts. In reality, of course, the US was directing these efforts.
Make no mistake, the United States is not funding “moderate vetted rebels” to
fight ISIS or al-Qaeda. The US is funding jihadist terrorists and mercenaries to
work alongside ISIS and al-Qaeda (if they are not members of these organizations
already) to overthrow the secular government of Bashar al-Assad. Virtually every
person of a moderate persuasion in Syria has long come over to the side of the
Syrian government. Indeed, there was never such a thing as a moderate rebel in
Syria to begin with and the reality on the ground has not changed since.
Thus, revelations that the United States is funding a mercenary army to
overthrow Assad is nothing new. The only revelation contained in these recent
reports are the chicken feed denominations of money that the terrorist savages
are accepting for their services in barbarity and treason on behalf of the
agenda of the Anglo-American world order.
