Top U.S. Generals: American Allies Support ISIS

Politicians Agree

America’s top military official – the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin E. Dempsey – and Senator Lindsey Graham admitted last September in a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing that America’s closest allies are supporting ISIS:

SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R), SOUTH CAROLINA, MEMBER OF ARMED SERVICES COMMITTEE:   Do you know any major Arab ally that embraces ISIL?

GEN. MARTIN DEMPSEY, CHAIRMAN, JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF: I know major Arab allies who fund them.

GRAHAM: Yeah, but do they embrace them? They fund them because the Free Syrian Army couldn’t fight Assad. They were trying to beat Assad. I think they realized the folly of their ways.

4-Star General Wesley Clark – who served as the Supreme Allied Commander of NATO – agrees:

And Turkish politicians say that the Turkish government is also supporting ISIS. Some also allege that Israel is directly or indirectly supporting ISIS. And see this.

And the U.S. itself has been taking actions that – intentionally or not – appear to be strengthening ISIS.

Maybe a good start for defeating ISIS would be to stop funding them and their BFFs?
