During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.

How CIA & Allies Helped ISIS In Syria  

 

Timber Sycamore is the codename of a covert operation officially authorized by Obama in June 2013 to train and equip the anti-Assad rebellion.

 

It actually started in October 2011, when the CIA coordinated with Britain’s MI6 (to avoid having to notify Congress that it was arming the rebels in Syria.)

 

Originally, the CIA and MI6 (British foreign intelligence) set up a rebel arms supply network in Syria from Libya — a plan that involved the Saudi, Qatari and Turkish intelligence services.  

 

Tens of thousands of tons of weapons and millions of rounds of ammunition were brought into the Syrian theater of war by this operation. It is also proven that these armaments mostly went to equip jihadist groups, including the terrorist militia which proclaimed itself “Islamic State” in June 2014.

 
Ultimately, Donald Trump decided to phase out this operation in early summer 2017. This was a major setback for the CIA, as the US President was thereby conceding the defeat of the United States and its partners in the war against Syria and its Russian, Iranian and Lebanese allies.    https://www.zerohedg...ses-new-details
