The Daily Beast’s Jamie Dettmer revealed that American humanitarian aid has been going to ISIS. The terrorist groups are receiving food, medical supplies, clinics, and cash. The so-called humanitarian supplies were meant for rebels and displaced Syrians in refugee camps but wound up in the wrong hands. According to the logic of White House Mullah Barack and State Department Grand Vizier Kerry, aid will be provided to America’s enemies only after sending American airpower for the purpose of killing them. All of this will take place after sniping with them over twitter. This must be John (I was in Vietnam) Kerry’s idea of modern warfare. After all, the material being shipped into the jihadist territory is assisting the terrorist build their caliphate. (1)
The aid is funded by the “U.S. Agency for International Development, European donors, and the United Nations.” Diplomats have considered stopping this aid but fear that such a decision would lead to bad press. Apparently the fact it was being continued despite the supplies going to ISIS must be “bad optics.” They are really worried that ISIS would blame western nations for cutting off humanitarian supplies to Syria in a propaganda video on YouTube.
If the supplies do move through ISIS territories, the terror group not only collects a portion, it also collects a tax (bribe) from the aid providers. America has been dealing with Islamic pirates even before Thomas Jefferson was President. America used to paid tribute in the 1790’s to free Americans held by Islamic pirates. Jefferson believed that paying tribute only invited more problems. Unfortunately the Obama Regime has failed to learn from history as the odds are that the money being paid to the Jihadists may be used to strike America. Recent incidents may be the beginning of an ISIS/al-Qaeda North American campaign.
Don’t Underestimate ISIS
Whenever you see Islamic State groups using new magazines they are well-organized, not wasting ammo by firing into the air in celebration. It’s likely that training and discipline have come to these Islamic State representatives thanks to former Sunni Iraqi soldiers who defected to ISIS. They don’t have the numbers to take on formal military threats but they are not as rag-tag as most terrorist groups. According to recent articles posted in Dabiq (ISIS online magazine) the organization is working to win the hearts and minds of Muslims in the caliphate while killing everyone else. To date the only opposition to terrorists on the ground has come from the Kurds, while the Obama administration is providing aid to both sides.
