“Black Budget Gaming” of the Central Intelligence Agency
Reports from Pentagon insiders tell of a strange and inexplicable “bifurcated” US policy. While the US has signed agreements and allocated funds to train “moderate groups” to fight against ISIS only — a clear policy change — other American commands are continuing to train ISIS itself.
Confirmed reports indicate while CentCom, representing “Big Army,” the main US fighting force are meeting overtly inside Turkey following new White House policy, JSOC, the mysterious Joint Special Operations Command, a group “hijacked” by former US Vice President Cheney back in 2004, has just finished training its 3,000th ISIS “cadre.”
Military analyst Colonel James Hanke, editor for Veterans Today noted the following:
“There is a clear divergence of purpose here. Watching ISIS operate, it is clear they have received far superior training than that given the Iraqi Army, training the US spent several hundred billions dollars on. The secret training camps in Jordan, established three years ago but now “gone dark,” are staffed with elite Special Forces. There is strong evidence that the core of ISIS capability is tied to these bases in Jordan and “black budget” facilities known only to the likes of Senator John McCain, soon to take over as Chairman of the all-powerful Senate Armed Services Committee.”
Those who look on the Syrian war, a fight against a “Free Syrian Army” that simply doesn’t exist, even by its own admission, is a small part of a complex story that is only now piecing together.
Last week, Turkish news sources reported that the US Central Command was meeting in Ankara in order to begin training of up to 2000 something, freedom fighters, jihadists, terrorists, mercenaries, they weren’t clear on that part.
From the US military publication, Stars and Stripes:
“Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren said he could not confirm the number of Syrian fighters, or the time line, but confirmed a plan had been worked out between Washington and Ankara.
“We will train members of the Syrian moderate opposition in Turkey as well as Saudi Arabia,” he said.
No Department of Defense trainers have arrived in Syria yet, Warren said, and the United States has yet to even begin the process of recruiting and vetting of rebels for the training effort. Officials say the initial round of training would produce of 5,000 trained Free Syrian Army members within about a year.
“Saudi Arabia in September agreed to host the training of moderate Syrian rebels to assist the U.S. strategy to combat Islamic State insurgents.”
That last sentence is the “kicker” as it were. Those to be trained inside Turkey are to be fighting on the other side. As American humorist Jim W. Dean so often says, “You just can’t make stuff like this up.”
