UK Study: During Obama Presidency US Weapons Took Two Months to Go From Syrian Rebels to ISIS

Obama’s Middle East Strategy Was Clearly the Worst Foreign Policy Strategy in US History

President Obama’s failed policies created a nightmare in Iraq, Syria, Libya and the entire Middle East.

President Obama, Hillary Clinton and the liberal mainstream media did not want Americans to know about Obama’s failed policies in the Middle East.  However, the results speak for themselves.

Documents obtained and released by Judicial Watch from a 2012 defense intelligence report on the civil war in Syria openly state that the policy of the US and its allies was to support the Salafist opposition to the Syrian regime ran by president Bashar al-Assad. This opposition was spearheaded by Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) and the Islamic State of Iraq which soon morphed into ISIS.

What is shocking about this report was that Obama knew that the Syrian opposition was dominated by al Qaeda in Iraq and Obama-Clinton went ahead and supported them anyways with ISIS created as a result.

Thanks to documents released by WikiLeaks we also now know that Google, along with Hillary Clinton, helped al-Qaeda and other groups like the Muslim Brotherhood acquire new members at the onset of the Syrian conflict – an effort created and supported by the Obama administration..  Then once recruited, Obama not only armed radical Islamists in Syria, he also paid them salaries.

The Obama administration spent $41.8 million to train the 54 Syrian fighters.

And a recent report by UK-based Conflict Armament Research (CAR) found US weapons went from rebels to ISIS militants in less than two months.

Sputnik News reported:

An international arms monitor has reported that US military weapons that were covertly provided to Syrian rebel groups were in the hands of Daesh within two months of their delivery.

The study was conducted by the UK-based Conflict Armament Research (CAR) and funded by the European Union and the German government. CAR studied 40,000 weapons recovered from Daesh since 2014 and found that a large amount of them were US arms given or sold to Syrian rebel groups.

In one case, an arsenal including anti-tank weapons switched hands from the US to Syrian rebels to Daesh in only a two month period.

The study was not able to conclude whether or not the rebels willingly gave the weapons to the Islamic militant group or if Daesh stole or captured them.
