Weapons Went From The CIA To ISIS In Less Than Two Months

Weapons Went From The CIA To ISIS In Less Than Two Months:

  • Mainstream media in 2013: “Conspiracy Theorists!” 
  • Mainstream media in 2017: “ISIS Got a Powerful Missile the CIA Bought!” 

Years late to the party, mainstream media outlets like USA Today, Reuters, and Buzzfeed are just out with “breaking” and “exclusive” stories detailing how a vast arsenal of weapons sent to Syria by the CIA in cooperation with US allies fuelled the rapid growth of ISIS. Buzzfeed’s story entitled, Blowback: ISIS Got A Powerful Missile The CIA Secretly Bought In Bulgaria, begins by referencing “a new report on how ISIS built its arsenal highlights how the US purchased munitions, intended for Syrian rebels, that ended up in the hands of the terrorist group.”

The original study that Buzzfeed and other media are referencing comes from a UK-based independent weapons research organization called Conflict Armament Research (CAR) which has had a team of weapons and munitions experts on the ground in the Middle East for years examining arms and equipment recovered from ISIS and other terrorist groups in Iraq and Syria. Using serial numbers, crate shipping markings, and all available forensics data, the CAR experts began finding that as early as 2013 to 2014 much of the Islamic State’s advanced weapons systems as well as small arms were clearly sourced to the United States and the West.

  1. So finally it got to a western press too, but the credits are given to an english organization…?

    This brave woman reported on it in very detail already earlier:
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-08-28/journalist-interrogated-fired-story-linking-cia-and-syria-weapons-flights
    https://trud.bg/350-diplomatic-flights-carry-weapons-for-terrorists/

    I suspect, that she was “fired” from Trud.bg (“Trud” meaning “Work”, the name sounds as socialism left-over?) just so they can distanciate from responsibility of her reporting, because she continues her work as free-lance, and they continue to host the report online…
