In a recent interview with CNN, American Congresswoman from Hawaii Tulsi Gabbard talked about her experiences when visiting Syria.
In her interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, The Congresswoman disclosed what she believed to be strong evidence that Obama and his administration funded two terrorist organizations.
Via Politicus: Gabbard said that Syrians “expressed happiness and joy at seeing an American walking their streets.” However, they also enquired as to “why is it that the United States, its allies and other countries, are providing support, are providing arms, to terrorist groups like Al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda, ISIS, who are on the ground there, raping, kidnapping, torturing, and killing the Syrian people?
“They asked me why is the United States supporting these terrorist groups who are destroying Syria – when it was Al-Qaeda who attacked the United States on 9/11, not Syria. I didn’t have an answer for that.“
Tapper retaliated by inputting “Obviously the United States government denies providing any sort of help to the terrorist groups you are talking about, they say they provide help for the rebel groups.”
Gabbard replied to this by telling him “…Every place that I went, every person I spoke to, I asked this question to them. And without hesitation, they said ‘there are no moderate rebels, who are these moderate rebels that people keep speaking of?’
“Regardless of the name of these groups, the strongest fighting force on the ground in Syria is Al-Nusra or Al-Qaeda and ISIS. That is a fact. There are a number of different other groups, all of them are fighting alongside, with or under the command of the strongest group on the ground that is trying to overthrow Assad.”
This looks like pretty damning evidence that former President Obama is partially responsible for ISIS’ rise into power.
Perhaps Gabbard’s testimony will bring some attention to the misappropriation of funds by the outgoing administration, and fix at least part of this ever growing threat in the Middle East.
