Did Obama even read the 2012 intelligence report warning his policies would lead to isis? Too busy playing golf to bother with reports.
He IGNORED the briefings: http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/261696-ex-spy-head-obama-ignored-isis-intel-to-fit-narrative
Well, this is not surprising in the least. A 2012 Pentagon declassified report demonstrates that the Obama administration was warned that its policies would lead to the creation of the Islamic State, but chose to ignore the warning.
The DIA report said, in essence, that if we (the U.S. and our local cronies) keep aiding al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other such sterling democrats, something really nasty would arise in eastern Syria. Several months later, it did, when ISIS declared itself a state straddling the Syria-Iraq border.
At some point, even a three-year-old picks up on the concept of causation. “Johnny, if you keep doing that, you’ll [break it, hurt yourself, whatever].” The MSM would have us think that Obama and Hillary are less intelligent than a three-year-old. By dumping funds and arms into the hands of terrorists—only the supposedly “moderate” head-choppers, of course—they had no idea, poor dears, what might happen.
Except they did. Aside from the cautionary example of the chaos Libya was thrown into by “regime change” in 2011, not to mention the appearance of al-Qaeda in the first place as a precipitate from the Afghan war against the Soviets, they had every reason to heed what amounted to a forewarning from DIA. Instead, they decided to press on, aware of the likely result. This was intended: ” . . . this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want.”
The issue for the Obama administration is not one of ignorance, though. Many conservatives continue to believe the man is incompetent, but he’s not. He is a pawn for sure, but it is to assist the New World Order by advancing the Islamic State as a tool to implement global government.
“On the contrary, the emergence of an al-Qaeda affiliated ‘Salafist Principality’ as a result is described as a strategic opportunity to isolate Assad,” he wrote.
He added that the DIA document “confirms that the main component of the anti-Assad rebel forces by this time comprised Islamist insurgents affiliated to groups that would lead to the emergence of ISIS.”
“Despite this, these groups were to continue receiving support from Western militaries and their regional allies,” he concluded.
General Michael Flynn, who currently advises Donald Trump, took over as head of DIA a month before the report was released. However, he did confirm last year that the creation of the Islamic State was not the result of the Obama administration turning a “blind eye,” but rather was a “willful decision.”
Hasan: You are basically saying that even in government at the time you knew these groups were around, you saw this analysis, and you were arguing against it, but who wasn’t listening?
Flynn: I think the administration.
Hasan: So the administration turned a blind eye to your analysis?
Flynn: I don’t know that they turned a blind eye, I think it was a decision. I think it was a willful decision.
Hasan: A willful decision to support an insurgency that had Salafists, Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood?
Flynn: It was a willful decision to do what they’re doing.
