Newsweek: Pentagon “Made Secret Deal with ISIS” to “Battle Assad in Syria”

    “The U.S. military allowed thousands of Islamic State militant group (ISIS) fighters to flee from their de facto capital of Raqqa, Syria, in a secret deal that boosted the U.S. fight against the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad."

    Yes, Virginia, there is a diabolical ideology at work in Iraq and Syria. This diabolical ideology has been supported by the Pentagon, which got their support from the Neoconservative movement, which got their support from the Israeli regime, which has vowed to oust Assad by any means necessary, including aiding and abetting terrorist organs in the region.[1]

    This is not conspiracy theory. It is not even a secret. All you have to do is ask Israeli ambassador to the US Michael Oren, who said in 2013 that “The initial message about the Syrian issue was that we always wanted [President] Bashar Assad to go, we always preferred the bad guys who weren’t backed by Iran to the bad guys who were backed by Iran.”[2]

    Oren said explicitly that terrorist cells like al-Qaeda and ISIS in Syria “are pretty bad guys,” but Israel prefers them over Iran and the Assad government.

    “Still, the greatest danger to Israel is by the strategic arc that extends from Tehran, to Damascus to Beirut. And we saw the Assad regime as the keystone in that arc. That is a position we had well before the outbreak of hostilities in Syria. With the outbreak of hostilities we continued to want Assad to go.”[3]

    Since Israeli officials still want Assad gone by any means necessary, they have invented all kinds of crazy ideas as to why Assad is a bad guy: Assad used chemical weapons on his own people; Assad was deliberately liquidating civilians; Assad “is like Hitler.[4] Blah, blah, blah.

    But Newsweek itself has recently revealed that one of Israel’s main puppets in Syria, the Pentagon, has used ISIS to fight the Syrian government. Listen to this:

    “The U.S. military allowed thousands of Islamic State militant group (ISIS) fighters to flee from their de facto capital of Raqqa, Syria, in a secret deal that boosted the U.S. fight against the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, according to a Pentagon-backed Kurdish commander who has since switched his allegiance to Turkey and who spoke to Reuters.

    “‘[An] agreement was reached for the terrorists to leave, about 4,000 people, them and their families,’ Silo told Reuters Friday, claiming that all but about 500 who fled were ISIS fighters.

    “A member of the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces holds up an ISIS flag claimed after battling the militants in Raqqa, Syria, on August 14. A high-ranking commander of the mostly Kurdish force has defected to Turkey and claimed his former comrades made a secret deal to allow ISIS fighters flee. News of a covert agreement between the Syrian Democratic Forces and ISIS was first leaked last month after a BBC News investigation…

    “The BBC investigation, citing an unnamed ‘Western officer’ who claimed he or she was present during the discussions, said 250 ISIS fighters left along with 3,500 family members, some of whom may have fled the country into neighboring Turkey.”[5]

    What we are seeing again and again here is that the so-called war on terror is a smokescreen. New World Order agents invent that ideology in order to destroy countries they do not like. It’s just that simple.

    1. President Trump aka The Donald or, Little Puppet Man is breaking American laws everytime he allows deals to be made with ISIS. Whether it is giving them cash, weapons, information, or transportation it is against our law. If anyone wants to truly impeach Little Puppet Man all they need to do is arrest him for violation of US Code 2338B. Under this statute it is a crime to give material support to a terrorist organization. Very simple. If you, I, or any common citizen sent 10 dollars to ISIS we would face 20 years in a Federal max security prison. Can anyone say double standard.

      • That’s the difference my friend between “You and I” and “Them”. “They” don’t go to any jail or Court of International Justice. It will not change any time soon. And if anyone was to be found in that outhouse called Congress to do the job, they will end up just like McCarthy. It took me a while what that was all about but it only happened after I stopped thinking that I know something watching Hollywood movies or listening to “experts” from CNN or FOX.

    2. Whoever the traitors are in the Pentagon; they need to be dragged out into the light of day and exposed for the traitors they are and our citizens should be made known what they have done IN OUR NAME IN SECRET. Using ISIS as either a tool or a friend is wrong on both accounts.

      We shouldn’t be in Syria in the first place because we have no business being there. This is a civil war and Israel has been trying to stir the pot as well attacking Syria claiming they are attacking Hamas as an excuse. There is no excuse. They are attacking a sovereign nation who has NOT attacked them if ever they are shot at in response and hit, they whine about being hit. This is after they have been the aggressor. This country needs an ultimatum by all of the Arab nations that surround it regardless of whether it has nuclear weapons or not. If they cannot stop attacking their neighbors, they will be attacked by ALL of the Arab and Persian neighbors. If the US wants to try and protect them, which is what they are counting on, then Russia and China need to protect the Arabs. Israel needs to be shut down and the US needs to learn to stop protecting this spoiled brat.

    3. Surely this is not a slip-up by the magazine of record Newsweek. I would expect this “truth” in Penthouse but not in Newsweek. I think they are counting on the fact that most don’t read anything in paper form.

    4. When will anything be done to the traitors in our military and Congress and president who are selling out to the unindicted war criminal nation of the world Israel? This is a great article by Alexis but I would now like to see some names of the top general in charge and names of every member of our military involved in these traitorous crimes in secret wouldn’t you? When will the totally corrupt media, controlled by Israel send some reporters to the front lines, as they did in WWII, to report the truth, instead of reporting all this worthless garbage about sex crimes and fake news to a duped public? Every member of our corrupt government should do us a favor and resign today so we can start anew. Remember Edward R. Murrow reporting from the front in W
