In two articles written by Aaron Klein and published by WND.com entitled “Saudis ‘arming jihadists’ seizing Iraqi cities” and “Blowback! U.S. trained ISIS at Secret Jordan base,” Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki’s charge that ISIS is funded and supported by Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been fully confirmed. But more than that, Klein’s articles and another article published by WND.com by F. Michael Maloof entitled “Source: Besieged Iraq sees Obama as jihad `accomplice’” establish beyond doubt that Obama has been complicit with the Saudis in this terrorist endeavor.
In the first of the above articles Klein reports that sources from the Jordanian and Syrian regimes report that the Saudis “are a driving force in supporting the group called the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS.”
In the second article, Klein reports that informed Jordanian officials told him that members of ISIS “were trained in 2012 by U.S. instructors working at a secret base in Jordan. The officials said dozens of ISIS members were trained at the time as part of covert aid to the insurgents targeting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria.”
On February 24,2012, Klein reported in an article entitled “Mideast war in March?” that the U.S., Turkey and Jordan were running a training base for the Syrian rebels in the Jordanian town of Safawi in the country’s northern desert region and that Saudi Arabia was sending weapons to the rebels. That report was confirmed by an article in Der Spiegel on March 10, 2013 entitled “Americans are training Syria rebels in Jordan,” in which Der Spiegel reported that “Saudi Arabia and Qatar are widely believed to be providing weapons to the rebels.” The training in Jordan reportedly focused on use of anti-tank weaponry. The German magazine reported some 200 men received the training over the previous three months amid U.S. plans to train a total of 1,200 members of the Free Syrian Army in two camps in the south and the east of Jordan.
Britain’s Guardian newspaper also reported on March 8, 2013 in an article entitled “West training Syrian rebels in Jordan,” that U.S. trainers were aiding Syrian rebels in Jordan along with British and French instructors.
Klein also reports in the aforementioned “Blowback!” article that ISIS has received training in Turkey. At least one of the training camps of ISIS, is in the vicinity of Incirlik Air Base near Adana, Turkey, where American personnel and equipment are located. According to Klein’s sources, after training in Turkey, thousands of ISIS fighters went to Iraq by way of Syria.
In another article published by WND.com on June 16, 2014 entitled “Source: Besieged Iraq sees Obama as Jihad `accomplice,’” author F. Michael Maloof writes that Saudi Arabia “paid some $3 billion to the jihadist group to overthrow Maliki.”
Maliki himself issued the following statement on June 17, 2014 with regard to Saudi Arabia:
“We hold them responsible for supporting these groups financially and morally and for its outcome – which includes crimes that may qualify as genocide: the spilling of Iraqi blood, the destruction of Iraqi state institutions and historic and religious sites.”
Having been complicit with Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey in funding, training and arming ISIS, Obama is now engaged in an effort to effect regime change in Iraq by ousting Maliki.
In doing so, he now claims that he can take military action in Iraq without Congressional consent in violation of the U.S. Constitution and the War Powers Resolution. After having said that he would not deploy boots on the ground, he has now deployed 275 combat equipped troops to Baghdad ostensibly to protect U.S. citizens and property in connection with the U.S. embassy and a special operations team of 300 military advisers to Iraq to coordinate potential air strikes and to provide tactical advice to Iraqi commanders.
Enough is enough! It is time to impeach Obama now!
