  • It was standing joke during the Obama administration how he was arming terror groups, and conducting a fake war against ISIS. 
  • The Benghazi attack and subsequent scandal exposed the transfer of arms by Hillary Clinton's State Department and the CIA to terrorists.  
  • During the Arab Spring the US government used terrorist groups as tools to topple secular dictators in the Middle East and North Africa in order to install governments with pro-Muslim Brotherhood sympathies.   
  • Obama's and Hillary's machinations against Muammar Gaddafi in Libya and Bashar-al-Assad in Syria have resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths, millions of displaced Arabs, and the still ongoing refugee crisis. 
  • But as you will see on the following article, the USA (and Europe too, by the way) has a very long history of arming and empowering Muslim terrorist groups, and of making deals with Muslim countries that sponsor and fund terror. 
  • The latest instance was the recent hundreds of billions of dollars worth of weapons sold to the Saudis by the Trump administration, the same Saudis behind world wide Arab terror, including the 9/11 attacks on the USA.
  • Furthermore, the USA and Europe have for decades generously financed Palestinians and their murderous terrorist tactics.  Palestinians are the largest recipients per capita of western foreign aid, although their ideology is ultimately aimed at the destruction of the State of Israel - a US ally. 
Embracing Islamic Terrorism
Dear Diary, I can’t show this letter to the innocent people of America and the world, so it’s just between you and me. Imagine the shock and the outrage if I say that we have to embrace Islamic terrorism! The average person doesn’t understand what’s at stake and how sometimes the elites need to rely on “controlled chaos” for the greater good.
Islamic terrorists are wonderful instruments for proxy wars – they cost very little but fight fearlessly. They are a global resource that can be brought into any local conflict. They are also expendable – we use them when convenient and kill them when inconvenient.
If this shocks the conscience of people, it just means they haven’t been paying keen attention. Consider the following examples:
  • Thomas Friedman of The New York Times wrote that we shouldn’t attack ISIS in Syria 1; and we should even consider arming ISIS to overthrow Assad 2
  • John Kerry admitted, “U.S. tried to use ISIS to force Assad into negotiations.” 3
  • Hillary Clinton wrote, “Saudi Arabia and Qatar fund and arm ISIS.” 6
  • Joe Biden, Gen. Martin Dempsey, Gen. Wesley Clark all have stated that US allies in the Middle East arm and fund Al Qaeda and ISIS. 7, 8, 9
  • Several State Department cables have clearly laid out how Saudi Arabia is the #1 source of funding for terrorism around the world – not just in the Middle East. 10

Ever wonder why we never go to war against or impose sanctions on these sponsors of terrorism? Heck we don’t even condemn them!
What goes through a reader’s mind when they see an article titled “Accepting Al Qaeda” 11 that is published by Council on Foreign Relations – the think tank behind US foreign policy? Or when Hillary Clinton’s chief foreign policy advisor wrote to her, “Al Qaeda is on our side”? 12
I can give many more such examples, but let’s hop on the time machine for a moment.
Continue reading including article on the Benghazi Commission

Afghanistan, 1979 – 1989. We used the Mujahedeen to defeat the Soviet Union. Was that not a good thing? Remember how the media and Hollywood glorified those Afghan fighters in the 1980s? The Afghan rebels even got to visit the White House.

There are two critical factors that are often forgotten in the Mujahedeen story: foreign fighters from all over the world and fundamentalist Islam.
In the 1980s, more than 35,000 so-called Arab Afghans came from all over the world to fight the Russians 13; and we wouldn’t have been able to motivate them to do so without appealing to the concept of Islam, Caliphate or jihad. “Fight for Allah” is far more effective than “Fight for Country X.”

Fighters motivated by religion are also extremely useful in the battlefield since they are not afraid of death. This mindset is essential for the use of suicide bombers without whom many battles and wars would not have been won.
We also learned from Saudi Arabia that indoctrination is essential to create good soldiers. So the CIA came up with clever textbooks for Afghan kids that introduced them to concepts of jihad, weapons and hatred for Russians. 14


(Since then, Saudi Arabia has spent billions of dollars on Islamic schools – Madrassas – all over the world. These schools act as breeding grounds for future activists, extremists and fighters. Saudis also print textbooks that are used all over the world. Kids learn loving messages such as “Kill Shiites, Christians and Jews.” 15 Saudi mosques and preachers all over the world also continue spreading extremist messages.)


When the Afghan war was about to be won, it dawned on us that the Mujahedeen project was a brilliant playbook that could be replicated in other parts of the world.
That’s when Al Qaeda was formed. And it was perfect timing.
You see, Halliburton had just discovered huge oil reserves near the Caspian Sea, but the countries around that region were all pro-Russia even after the fall of the USSR. 16
Without the knowledge of the American public, the Mujahedeen were very active all throughout the 1990s in Bosnia, Kosovo, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Dagestan, Chechnya etc. 17 These fighters were used for three major purposes:
  • throw out pro-Russia dictators
  • install pro-West leaders who would help us build oil/gas pipelines and agree to host US military bases, and
  • disrupt Russian pipelines and other interests
Azerbaijan was an easy one and we got our man in 1993. Georgia took a long time, but George Soros and his color revolution finally installed our guy in 2005. Within a year, we had a 1000-mile pipeline that linked Azerbaijan (Caspian Sea), Georgia and Turkey!
(Muslim) Chechnya was a partial success. They were struggling for independence from Russia and thus gladly welcomed the Mujahedeen who also had plenty of Saudi money and US weapons. Within a short time, the non-violent and mystical Sufism of Chechnya was taken over by Saudi Wahhabism.
Al Qaeda started blowing up Russian pipelines. Russia invaded Chechnya in 1994, lost the war, and withdrew. It was fun to watch the news those days. But then Putin became the Prime Minister three years later, waged a ruthless war against the jihadists, won decisively and installed his own strongman in Chechnya 18. Even Sufism has seen a major revival lately and Chechens have now started rejecting Wahhabism and jihadism. 19


Al Qaeda was extremely helpful in Bosnia, Albania, Macedonia and Kosovo. In the late 1990s, we used trumped-up charges and NATO bombing to get rid of the pro-Russia guy in Serbia.
Away from Eurasia, Islamic extremism and terrorism play major roles in Africa, Middle East and Asia to catalyze geopolitical transformations.
In Libya, Syria, Yemen and Somalia, we depend on Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda and Salafists (those who follow extreme, fundamentalist Sunni Islam).
In Libya, we leveraged the terrorist group called Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) 20.
We released its leader from the CIA prison, dressed him up in a nice suit, arranged a photo-op with John McCain, and he became the freedom fighter who fought Gaddafi, the brutal dictator!
In Syria, tens of thousands of Al Qaeda fighters were flown in from all over the world to topple Assad 21. If it were not for Putin’s evil interventions, we would now have a Qatar pipeline through Syria, and Israel would be drilling oil in Golan Heights 22. A tragic situation indeed. 
In Africa, Nigeria is a strategic country with 170 million people and a land rich in oil and natural resources. That’s where Boko Haram – African ISIS – comes into play. It has been extremely successful in every way. Also, thanks to Boko Haram, half of Nigeria is under Sharia Law, which is a great tool to control people.
In Asia, we need to prevail upon Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines. Without them, we lose much of Asia to China. Sharia Law and Salafism are gaining momentum in Indonesia, which is a positive sign. 23
Philippines’ crazy leader, Duterte, has been too friendly with Russia and China 24. He will lose his popularity and get replaced if the ISIS affiliate – Abu Sayyaf – causes enough problems. If he fights back against ISIS, we will cry “human rights” and “Islamophobia” at the UN and impose sanctions.

Thailand has also been foolishly moving into the Russia-China sphere of influence 25. Well, this peaceful, Buddhist country has been facing Sunni/Salafist extremism in the south. Thai leaders must realize that the entire tourism industry is very vulnerable – a few bombings and attacks by jihadists can have serious effects.

Global terrorists

Finally, let’s look at Europe. There has been a lot of problems with mass immigration – terrorism, crimes etc. However, every crisis is an opportunity. Some call it the Problem-Reaction-Solution.
Terrorism is the problem. Fear is the reaction. Government is the solution.
Terrorism and crime give us the chance to militarize the police in EU, create an “NSA” for entire Europe, and even an EU army. The financial burden caused by refugees also allows us to impose austerity and cut wasteful welfare spending. Mass immigration will also result in a more homogeneous European society. Twenty years from now, there won’t be much difference between France and Germany. This means much easier management of EU.
Moving forward, the biggest economic challenge for us will be China. However, it has an Achilles heel – the western province of Xinjiang that is predominantly made up of Muslims. With help from Turkey, we have already created in Xinjiang an Islamist movement that is calling for secession 26.
China’s One Belt One Road is very dependent on freight trains safely traveling through that region on their way to Europe. Our future Mujahedeen in Xinjiang will come in handy if China starts to misbehave. 
It took us about 60 years to unify North and South America to a great degree under a common financial, corporate, economic and military system. (Venezuela is the odd man out, but we’re working on it).
It may take another sixty years to unify Europe, Russia and China. Then we will have global governance and the ultimate New World Order. No borders and no walls. One World. In bringing that to fruition, we have many arrows in our quiver – trade, financial/military aid, coups, color revolutions, sanctions, wars, etc. – but Islamic terrorism and fundamentalism will continue playing indispensable roles, and that’s why we must accept them and embrace them.

  • The Obama administration effectively switched sides in what used to be called the Global War on Terror when it decided to overthrow Libyan ally, Muammar Qaddafi, who’d been helping in the fight against al-Qaeda, by actually teaming up with and facilitating gun-running to Libyan al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood [MB] elements there in 2011.   This policy was directed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  
  • To avoid having the funds tracked back to the Obama administration, the arms flow to Libya was financed thru the United Arab Emirates, while Qatar served as the logistical and shipping hub, she noted. 
  • In 2012, the gun-running into Libya turned around and began to flow outward, from Benghazi to the AQ-and-MB-dominated rebels in Syria. The CIA was in charge of collecting up and shipping out [surface-to-air missiles] SAMs from Libya on Libyan ships to Turkey for overland delivery to a variety of jihadist militias, some of whose members later coalesced into groups like Jabhat al-Nusra and ISIS [also known as IS].

Benghazi Commission: Obama Admin Gun-Running Scheme Armed Islamic State
The Obama administration pursued a policy in Libya back in 2011 that ultimately allowed guns to walk into the hands of jihadists linked to the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) and al-Qaeda (AQ) in Syria, according to a former CIA officer who co-authored a report on behalf of the Citizen’s Commission on Benghazi (CCB), detailing the gun running scheme.
In Congress, the then-bipartisan group known as the “Gang of Eight,” at a minimum, knew of the operation to aid and abet America’s jihadist enemies by providing them with material support. So says Clare Lopez, a former CIA officer and the primary author of CCB’s interim report, titled How America Switched Sides in the War on Terror, speaking with Breitbart News.

The ripple effects of the illegal policy to arm America’s enemies continue to be felt as the U.S. military is currently leading a war against ISIS and AQ terrorists in Iraq and Syria, according to Lopez.
In late October, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said that the U.S. would begin “direct action on the ground” against ISIS terrorists in Iraq and Syria who may have reaped the benefits from the gun-running scheme that started in Libya.

“The Obama administration effectively switched sides in what used to be called the Global War on Terror [GWOT] when it decided to overthrow the sovereign government of our Libyan ally, Muammar Qaddafi, who’d been helping in the fight against al-Qaeda, by actually teaming up with and facilitating gun-running to Libyan al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood [MB] elements there in 2011,” explained Lopez.
“This U.S. gun-running policy in 2011 during the Libyan revolution was directed by [then] Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and [the late Libya Ambassador] Christopher Stevens, who was her official envoy to the Libyan AQ rebels.”
To avoid having the funds tracked back to the Obama administration, the arms flow to Libya was financed thru the United Arab Emirates, while Qatar served as the logistical and shipping hub, she noted.
“In 2012, the gun-running into Libya turned around and began to flow outward, from Benghazi to the AQ-and-MB-dominated rebels in Syria,” Lopez added. “This time, it was the CIA Base of Operations that was in charge of collecting up and shipping out [surface-to-air missiles] SAMs from Libya on Libyan ships to Turkey for overland delivery to a variety of jihadist militias, some of whose members later coalesced into groups like Jabhat al-Nusra and ISIS [also known as IS].”

Jabhat al-Nusra is al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate.
“The downstream consequences of Obama White House decisions in the Syrian conflict are still playing out, but certainly the U.S. – and particularly CIA – support of identifiable jihadist groups associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, Jabhat al-Nusra, Ahrar al-Sham, the Islamic State and other [jihadists] has only exacerbated what was already a devastating situation,” declared Lopez.
Some of the other weapons that eventually ended up in Syria included thousands of MAN-Portable-Air-Defense-System (MANPADS) missile units, such as shoulder-launched SAMs, from late dictator Muammar Qaddafi’s extensive arms stockpiles that pose a threat to low-flying aircraft, especially helicopters.

“It’s been reported that President Obama signed an Executive Order on Syria in early 2012 [just as he had done for Libya in early 2011], that legally covered the CIA and other U.S. agencies that otherwise would have been in violation of aiding and abetting the enemy in time of war and providing material support to terrorism,” notes Lopez. “Still, such blatant disregard for U.S. national security can only be described as deeply corrosive of core American principles.”
Libya Amb. Stevens was killed by jihadists in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, along with three other Americans.
Echoing a Benghazi resident who provided a first-hand account of the incident, retired U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Dennis Haney, a CCB member, suggested to Breitbart News that Hillary Clinton’s State Department armed some of the al-Qaeda linked jihadists who may have killed the four Americans in Benghazi.
“The reason the U.S. government was operating in Libya is absolutely critical to this debacle because it reflects where America went off the tracks and literally switched sides in the GWOT,” points out Lopez. “This is about who we are as a country, as a people — where we are going with this Republic of ours.”
“There can be no greater treason than aiding and abetting the jihadist enemy in time of war – or providing material – weapons, funding, intel, NATO bombing – support to terrorism,” she continued.
“The reason Benghazi is not the burning issue it ought to be is because so many at top levels of U.S. government were implicated in wrong-doing: White House, Pentagon, Intel Community-CIA, Gang of Eight, at a minimum, in Congress, the Department of State, etc.”
The State Department and the CIA did not respond to Breitbart News’ requests for comment.
The Democratic presidential frontrunner claimed she was not aware of any U.S. government efforts to arm jihadists in Libya and Syria.
Clinton did admit to being open to the idea of using private security experts to arm the Qaddafi opposition, which included al-Qaeda elements, but added that it was “not considered seriously.”
The 2011 “Gang of Eight” mentioned in this report was comprised of a bipartisan group of lawmakers from both chambers.
Lopez is the vice president for research and analysis at the Center for Security Policy and a senior fellow at the London Center for Policy Research and the Canadian Meighen Institute.

The sale of hundreds of billions of dollars worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia, a shameless sponsor of terror all over the world.

- Will sell them hundreds of billions in sophisticated weapons and military technology, helping them become a superpower and a major threat to ISRAEL
  • The largest oil refinery in America — and the 600,000 barrels processed per day in Texas — is now officially owned by Saudi Aramco
  • Saudis unexpected success
    The Gulf Coast refinery deal comes less than two months after President Trump met with Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at the White House. 
  • Saudi Arabia “is hoping the Aramco IPO [in 2018] will be valued at a stunning $2 trillion
  • At the same time Trump is aiming to build up what he calls an Arab NATO, although there is already such an organization in place called the Arab League with 22 members.
  • The arms deal could be worth as much as $350 billion over 10 years, and would include sales of ships, armored personnel carriers, missiles, bombs and munitions for the Saudi army and navy. 
  • It would be one of the largest deals of its kind in US history.  The intermediary in this deal is Jared Kushner, Trump's son in law, and notorious New York Democrat and former supporter of the Clintons. 
  • The sales include huge upgrades for the Saudi army and navy to include Littoral Combat Ships and THAAD missile defense systems.  
  • The Saudis and the US military industry will undoubtedly benefit from this deal - to the detriment of world peace. 
  • The deal is made even sweeter by locating some production and assembly in Saudi Arabia itself - in other words, giving them US technology to attack other Arab countries and ISRAEL.
  • There is a good probability that these weapons and military technology will one day soon pass into the hands of radical Islamists, as Saudi royalty are in peril of eventually being toppled by insurgents.
  • Saudi Arabia's adversary, Iran, is now close to developing nuclear bombs, thanks to president Barack Hussein Obama's infamous deal.   The Trump administration has expressed there will be no renegotiation of that deal.
  • In the meantime the Israeli military continues to slide downward, with top brass appointed from among liberal and globalists officers, and a comparatively inferior strength.
  • There is incontrovertible evidence that Saudi Arabia was connected to the 9/11 attacks on the US.   Much of this evidence was covered up by the US government because of politics and shady alliances between American politicians and the Saudis.


Recently president Trump visited the Middle East and his message to Arab countries was "DRIVE OUT THE TERRORISTS".   
His message to Israel was "GIVE THEM A STATE".
