Flashback 2016: Secretary of State John Kerry Admits President Obama Intentionally Armed ISIS in Syria – Audio Recording and Transcript…

CTH has some new readers, so against the backdrop of the UniParty in Washington DC jumping into action to criticize President Trump’s decision to withdraw from Syria; and against the backdrop of President Trump authorizing an operation last night that killed ISIS leader Baghdadi, perhaps a little factual and historic refresher is in order….

On September 30th 2016 the New York Times quietly released a leaked audio recording of Secretary John Kerry meeting with multiple factions associated within Syria.
The 40-minute discussion took place on the sidelines of a United Nations General Assembly in New York. The meeting took place at the Dutch Mission to the United Nations on Sept. 22nd 2016:

[…] Kerry’s off-record conversation was apparently with two dozen ‘Syrian civilians’, all from US backed opposition-linked NGO’s in education and medical groups supposedly working in ‘rebel-held’ (aka terrorist-held) areas in Syria.
This opposition conclave also included ‘rescue workers’ which can only be ambassadors from the White Helmets, a pseudo NGO which serves as Washington and London’s primary PR front in pursuit of a “No Fly Zone’ in Syria, and it’s being bankrolled by the US, UK, EU and other coalition states to the tune of well over $100 million (so far). (link)

When you listen to the audio recording (embedded below) it becomes immediately obvious what was going on in 2014, 2015 and 2016 as an outcome of policy from the White House. In addition, you discover why this jaw-dropping 2016 leak/story was buried by the U.S. media and how it connects to the prior 4 years of perplexing U.S. mid-east policy.
This evidence within this single story would/should forever remove any credibility toward the U.S. foreign policy under President Obama. It also destroys the credibility of a large number of well known republicans, and explains how the prior action placed President Trump into a precarious position requiring a careful approach.

The key Secretary Kerry moments are at 02:00, and again at approximately 18:30 forward.
The discussion from 18:30 through to 29:00 are exceptionally revealing and should be listened to by anyone who has wondered what was going on in Syria. Kerry even makes mention of the “Responsibility to Protect, or R2P” principle:

@18:30 Secretary John Kerry [transcript]:

[…] “Well, the problem is the Russians do not care about law, and we do. And, we don’t have a basis -our lawyers tell us- unless we have a U.N. Security Council resolution, which the Russians can veto and Chinese, OR unless we are under attack from the folks there, or unless we are invited in. Russia was invited in by the legitimate regime, well, it’s illegitimate in our mind, by the regime. And so, they were invited in and we’re not invited in.”
“We’re flying in airspace there, where they can turn on the air defense and we have a very different scene. The only reason they’re letting us fly is because we’re going after ISIS. If we were going after Assad, those air defenses, we’d have to take out all those air defenses, uh, and we don’t have a legal justification, frankly, for doing that unless we stretch it way beyond the law on a humanitarian basis, which some people argue we should – by the way.”
“Uh, but so far American legal theory has not gone into these so called “right to protect”, uh, and we don’t even have what we had in Kosovo where we had an, you know, an existing resolution and so forth. Uh, even though we went alone.”
“And so it’s complicated, it’s not easy. And we’ve been fighting. How many wars have we been fighting? We’ve been fighting in Afghanistan, we’ve been fighting in Iraq, we’ve fighting -you know- in the region for fourteen years. And a lot of Americans don’t believe that we should be fighting and sending young Americans over to die in another country. That’s the problem.”
“The congress won’t vote to do it. And you can be mad at us, but what we’re trying to do is help Syrians fight for their own country; and we’ve been spending a lot of money, a lot of effort to try and help do this. So, there’s an opposition there; the opposition is doing very well. Russia came in, and that’s a problem I know, because, uh, y’ know, uh, we don’t behave like Russians, it’s just a different standard.”
“So we are trying to see if we can test whether Russia, you see, is serious about a political solution. And if they are not serious, then we will help the opposition more. But I don’t think that’s particularly good for Syrians in the end because it will mean more fighting.”

Secretary Kerry is then questioned by an obvious sympathizer toward the extremist elements (calls pro-assad Sunni faction “Sunni Jews”) about why the U.S. fights the extremist Sunni (ISIS), but not the extremist Shia (Hezbollah). Kerry’s response:

“Well, they’re [Hezbollah] a terrorist organization, we’ve designated them a terrorist organization. The reason for [airstrikes against the Sunni Extremists] is because they have basically declared war on us; and are plotting against us, and Hezbollah is not plotting against us; Hezbollah is exclusively focused on Israel, they’re not attacking now, and on Syria where they are attacking in support of the, uh, in support of Assad.”
“So it a, uh, it’s…”
Question: “But how to make the majority of the Syrian people accept this approach, that because Hezbollah or the Iraqi or Iranian groups are not attacking the U.S. now when they are attacking against the terrorism in Syria?”
Kerry: “Well, they, they are targeted by the opposition who we are arming and training.”

What the recording reveals is substantive:
First, only regime change, the removal of Bashir Assad, in Syria was the 2013, 2014, and 2015 goal for President Obama. This is admitted and outlined by Secretary John Kerry.
Secondly, in order to accomplish this primary goal, the White House was willing to watch the rise of ISIS (’13, ’14, ’15) by placing their bet that ISIS’s success would force Syrian President Bashir Assad to acquiesce toward Obama’s terms and step down.
Thirdly, in order to facilitate the objective, Obama and Kerry intentionally gave arms to ISIS and even, arguably, attacked a Syrian government military convoy to stop a strategic attack upon the Islamic extremists killing 80 Syrian soldiers.
Pause for a moment and consider those three points carefully. Because the audio, along with accompanying research now surfacing, not only exposes these three points as truth – but also provides the specific evidence toward them.
The problem in the Obama/Kerry’s secret strategy became clear when ISIS grew in sufficient strength to give the White House optimism for the scheme – however, instead of capitulation Assad then turned to Russia for help.
When Russia came to aid Bashir Assad the Syrian Government began being able to defeat ISIS and the Islamic Extremist elements within Syria. For the hidden plan of Obama/Kerry (and also McCain, Graham, et al), Russia defeating ISIS, al-Qaeda and al-Nusra, upended their objective.
Against the backdrop of this recording we can reconcile so many historic issues. We already know of a Second Presidential Finding Memo authorizing additional CIA covert action in 2012, this time in Syria. However, unlike the 2011 Libyan operation we do not know the operational name of the second action in 2012 Syria.

2012: WASHINGTON, Aug 1 (Reuters) – President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for rebels seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government, U.S. sources familiar with the matter said.

Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the rebels oust Assad. (link)

Further consider how this Kerry audio tape, and the now transparent Obama policy toward Syria, absolutely confirms our earlier research as contained within the Benghazi Brief surrounding Syria. [Previous post]
President Obama, Secretary Clinton (2011, 2012) and later Secretary Kerry, together with John McCain, and the CIA tentacled team within the Republican party (2013, 2014, 2015) were willing to support extremist (under all factional names) in order to overthrow Bashir Assad…

This was their 2016 admitted policy, only because they were caught.
Nothing else mattered.
President Trump took office in January 2017, and began a process to kill and remove, with extreme prejudice, the ISIS forces that President Obama, Secretary Clinton and Secretary Kerry armed. He began with the end in mind, and delivered the following quote:…

That mission has been accomplished.

  1. Pale rider says:

    So Kerry and Obama could be grouped in with Abu Bakr, yes?

    • bliss3609 says:

      Could someone be kind enough to tell me WHY they wanted to get rid of Assad so bad.. everything I see shows that Assad was not the guilty party as to the gasing of Syrians… so what was the real reason???
      Thanks in advance

      • Marc says:

        It’s all about gas/oil pipelines and control of territory. This is also why backing the Kurds in Syria is so important to the neocons because they can be a constant foil to Assad in their region of the country(seeking their own state and whatnot).
        Elites both here and abroad wish to pilfer and profit all over the Middle East with oil rich lands being so plentiful, Syria being one of them. Stable government run by strongmen are in their way so they must instigate conflict/civil war to cause the nation to collapse. This is happened in both Iraq(Saddam) and Libya(Qaddafi) and the warmongers have been trying for years with Syria but have been unsuccessful mostly due to Russian presence and support on the ground.

        • De Oppresso Liber says:

          Yep, you pretty much nailed it, Marc……good post.

        • foodog says:

          Yep. The Kurds are not one people- they are clans and tribes and faction within. If they had ever stopped fighting among themselves and consolidated on the oil rich land in n.Iraq and western Syria, they would be sitting pretty now.
          We used them to fignt ISIS as the enemy of my enemy, but we owe no more allegiance now thats done. The PKK was rightfully named a terror group and we certainly cant help a terror group fight a NATO ally, no matter how sketchy Turkey is now- until they leave NATO we cant do that.
          Thats the brilliance of TRUMP setting the trap for Erdogan, who walked into it.
          And now had to run out, to the arms of Putin to save him. Eventually the EU will wake up, and is now serious about the natural gas pipeline Trump is suggesting, and the north port for LNG delivery in the Baltic.
          Look at the gas discoveries around Cyprus including the leases belonging to Israel, which is on the way to becoming an energy exporter as thats developed.
          Making Syria stable is in everyones best interest now- Iran included, but not with OUR blood and treasure- let Turkey and Iran duke it out, Sunni vs Shia as they have been since the 7th Century.
          We hold onto the oil fields in eastern Syria. If Obama/Dems/State Dept hadnt been so stupid and breathtakingly incompetent we would today have a Status of Forces agreement and a permanent base in Iraq, to stabilize the northern oil fileds by Mosul, too, instead of losing millions of tons of material and equipment to the ISIL when Iraqi troops ran away, leaving even their uniforms in the sand.

          • Marc says:

            Lose.. more like willingly gave the oil fields away to ISIS. I honestly couldn’t care less about holding anything in Iraq or Syria. The regime change wars need to end so I’m against establishing permanent bases in conflict zones. President Trump only wants to hold the oil fields for now so that ISIS remnants, Iran, Turkey, and even the PKK can’t get their hands on it.


        • Martin says:

          It’s not the proxy war with Russia that’s at issue, as much as Kerry’s admission as to why it was done: Congress would not appropriate funds for yet another ME action. So, they stole it from Gaddafi, and the entire scheme that resulted in Benghazi. Arming terrorists who’ve been designated as such, and as Kerry admitted, have declared war on us, is treason, is it not?
          From Libya, by freighter to Turkey, then across the desert to Syrian “freedom fighter” camps, complete with catering from Langley. Quite a tangle The Poodle could be in, if someone pressed the issue. And his former boss, too.

      • johnnybiface says:

        I was wondering the same thing. I suspect it could be something as picayune is Obama had hear the Assad had insulted Obama. But it could also be an Iran – Syria rivalry where the Valerie Jarret bias favors Iran hegemony in the area. What I’m sure about is that it wasn’t in our national interest in giving Iran billions of $ and nuclear weapon capability to a country that murders US soldiers. It was such a curious turn of events. Didn’t Pelosi visit Assad on a diplomatic “reset” mission before Obalama was elected?

        • Alex Pazzo says:

          Kerry’s daughter just married Iranian “royalty”
          Muslim Brother Hood and Iran
          That is/was their allegiance

            • Bubba Cow says:


            • De Oppresso Liber says:

              And let us not forget who Barry’s “Best Man” was when he wedded Michael — MALIK OBAMA — who is Barry’s half-brother, and also just happens to be a TOP LIEUTENANT in the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.
              Funny how that works out, huh? I mean as in “Ha-Ha” funny, not queer funny….
              Ol’ Sparklefarts and the Bestial Bride of Bubba certainly made sure the “Family Business” was very well-armed via Benghazi; I would love to see those responsible for that despicable, TREASONOUS, fiasco hanged one day….

      • Steve in Greensboro says:

        Why did Obama want to get rid of Assad? For the same reason he wanted to get rid of Qaddafi in Libya and install and preserve Morsi in Egypt.
        Obama is an advocate of the Muslim Brotherhood. He wanted to install Muslim fundamentalist regimes in all three countries. He wanted to further than creation of a Muslim caliphate in the Middle East

        • RobInPA says:

          Exactly, and Dinesh D’Souza made this perfectly clear in his movie “2016: Obama’s America”.
          This explains the motivation around the Crimson Kenyan’s entire ME policy, to restore a regional islamic caliphate.
          May that lousy piece of CRAP rot in hell wrapped in pig fat for all eternity!

        • foodog says:

          See Valjars family tree, and Huma Abedins mother and fathers MB offices.
          This was set up years and years ago.

      • De Oppresso Liber says:

        Treeper Marc pretty much nails it…..

      • Kintbury says:

        I understand he protected Christians in his country, maybe that was the problem. I could be wrong on that one but I do remember Pelosi visiting during the Bush admin and saying he was a reformer.

      • The Demon Slick says:

        See Marc below but as a bonus they would have gotten to slaughter the Syrian Christians.

    • ezgoer says:

      Yes it’s now obvious Obama/Kerry and the entire Democrat party was allied with ISIS.

      • ezgoer says:

        You can see the Dem alliance with ISIS by the friendly media treatment by the leftist media outlets today …. NY Times, WaPo, Bloomberg, etc.

      • Rhoda R says:

        If the dems were frantic before … well, the President dropped the little bomblet about how some of the intel gathered in the raid deals with the establishment of ISIS, must have put the dems in terminal clonic spasm now.

    • foodog says:

      yes, and before that Hillary.
      This was the purpose of the Libya gun-running op, to get the manpads and other dangerous weaponry out of there before the AQIA militia got their hands on it, and transfer it without fingerprints to the Al-Nusra faction (radical sunnis imported to the secret CIA/special forces training base hosted by Jordan just inside their border with Syria at Al Tanf). McCain knew about this- helped set it up- and its rumored thats why AMB Stevens was brought to Benghazi to facilitate the process, with CIA as the gun-runners below the radar of Congressional oversight (if this sounds familiar refer back to Fast and Furious, where Sec State Clinton also signed off on Military deliveries of surplus M-16s to Mexico, also with CIA logistics.)
      So of COURSE Obama/Holder/Clinton had to lie about it, Benghazi in particular, with CIA help to claim it was a youtube did it, because the whole rat-line was rotten and incredibly bad judgement from the beginning.

    • donna kovacevic says:

      That bastard Kerry bragged how they went into Kosovo alone. Da Bog da crkli all of them who have caused havoc on Kosovo and the Serbian people. Burn in the lake of fire.

  2. Which explains why Obama released al Baghdadi from custody in 2008.

    • TMonroe says:

      There’s been back and forth over whether it was 2004 or 2009, which given the politicized institutions involved I don’t give a lot of stock to who’s claiming what these days.
      It does go tomthenissue of using our troops, getting scores of them killed or disabled, and then letting politicians cut deals or declare false victories that lead to prisoner releases of terror entities who aren’t going back to a personal livelihood or geographic location but continue with their cause, one to which enough PC prioritizers in the government and military turned willful blind eyes for political points despite the body count.

      • Dutchman says:

        Sometimes, not ALWAYS, admittedly,…but SOMETIMES you can detirmine the true motives and goals for someones actions, by looking at the RESULT.
        What I mean to say is some people ALWAYS go to the ‘law of unintended consequences’, to say that just because an administrations actions had THIS consequence, it doesn’t MEAN that that consequence was their intended GOAL.
        This, however can be refuted, by the “Law of Three;
        THIRD Time?,….Enemy Action!
        Fast and Furious was INTENDED to supply the Mexican cartels with weoponry, to trigger a,wave of violence on the border, IN ORDER TO create an International Crises with Mexico imploring the U.S. to ‘do something’about the guns moving from U.S. to Mexico, in order to JUSTIFY Obama issueing Executive (unconstitutional) order on GUNS. FACT.
        The supplying of weapons TO the Cartels, DID result in a,wave of violence, and growth of the gangs, which is ONE of the precipitating factors in the massive illegal migration North, into the U.S. FACT.
        The supplying of arms to ISIS, feeding the ‘rise of Isis’, the resulting civil wars and beheadings, mass slaughtering of civilians (just like the cartels use) similarly triggered mass illegal migration from africa/mideast, into EUROPE. FACT.
        Our ‘unending war’ policy in ME, has decimated a subset of the population;
        Those patriots who VOLONTEER to fight for their country. DEPLORABLES.
        Is it a coincidence, or INTENTIONAL that the policies Obama admin, and Uniparty leadership in Congress implemented, had the effect of triggering massive migration from Central America into U.S., and from Africa/Middle east into Western Europe.
        Coincidence Globalist governments (in EU and US) encouraged and even mandated (thru regulation, or refusing to follow existing regulations, or refusing to write and pass needed legislation) the acceptance of the HOARDS of unassimilating populations of illegal migrants, and offering them incentives (both ‘human trafficking’ disguised as NGO’s, and social welfare benefits once they arrive). The very migrants THEIR policies created.
        How do you bring down ‘western society’as we have known it? Force upon it massive #’s of migrants with no interest in assimilation, who will bankrupt its social network, and increase crime.
        HOW do you get 10’s of millions of people to MOVE 1000’S of MILES, leaving their HOMES, Families, etc?
        Well, threatening to cut their heads off seems to work pretty good, whether in Mexico or Libya.
        Obama, Mercal, May, the whole EU leadership, the Congressional leadership, the media, etc. are ALL IN on trying to ‘transform’the world into a ‘One World Government’ run by Elitist; a relatively small percentage of the population, for Their benefit.
        And, destroying Deplorables, not just in the U.S., but in GB, (Brexit) France (Yellow vests) or Hong Kong, is a NECCESARY, inevitable part of their plan.
        The lead up to the 2008 financial crises, turned the American Dream into a nightmare for many.
        The exfiltration of manufacturing jobs, and the concommitant middle class lifestyles, was a seperate attack on Deplorables. And then the pharmacuetical industry fueled abuse of Rx. Opiods, follwed by the Fentanyl crises, fed those who had been so beat down.
        THEY have been at WAR with we Deplorables, for AT LEAST 30 years, but,…..
        It has been an ‘UnDeclared war’. No one formally announced hostilities in a speech or Press conference, they just quietly began implementing these laws, policies and administrative actions, with specific goals in mind.
        Its TRUE; They aren’t really after Trump.
        He’s just ‘in their way’.
        THEY are after YOU!

        • “Sometimes, not ALWAYS, admittedly,…but SOMETIMES you can detirmine the true motives and goals for someones actions, by looking at the RESULT.”
          Damn near always Dutchman, with a percentage well into the upper levels of the 90% range… one will find the answers within the results of “their” actions.
          Historically, dating very far back as well. “They” have been at this for centuries as I’m sure you know. My research tells me the war on us “deplorables” you mentioned going back at least 30 years actually began in the early 1900s, obviously linked to the feral “reserve” “act”.
          We have, and continue to do so even now, financed our own demise and the destruction across the globe as designed for nefarious globalist desires. I pray Term Two of our VSG President’s presidency is as epic as I envision, for The Great Reckoning is absolutely a MUST and the swamp is absolutely GLOBAL.

          • Herbert Kroll says:

            History has shown repeatedly that once a population starts shrinking, the elites lose all. A shortage of personel (labor) is devastating for class relations, because it’s terribly equalizing…

          • Dutchman says:

            Agree. There did SEEM to be an,…acceleration, however, in the last 30 years or so.
            Dating from Reagans ending the Soviet Union. Perhaps that acted as a ‘wake up call’ for the Globalists?
            It COULD be just a matter of perception. I see the big start in 1915, with Wilson in America, and the Russian ‘revolution’.
            And the massive increase of the buerocracy under FDR.
            Still, somehow things seem to have changed in last 30 years.
            The media gave up any pretence of ‘objectivity’, for those,who were paying attention, the whole ‘patriot act’ thing,…..and then of coarse theres Obamination. The Transformation of America, tha apology tour and all the rest.
            The Congress being so obvious that they really don’t CARE what the American people, the VOTERS, think.
            End times?,…Satans hand is certainly obvious, to those who look.
            Interesting times, for sure. And, it,….FEELS like an existential battle,…like we can not POSSIBLY go back to ‘live and let live’, as our opponents have no interest in anything but our destruction.

        • foodog says:

          Correct- Mike Vanderboegh of SipseyStreet Irregulars and long-time gunblogger David Correa broke the ATF scandal, which was expanded upon by Sharyl Atkisson, once she gained ATF agents trust in her larger CBS platform.
          What many forget was that it was Obama’s promise to Brady Gun Control group to “do something under the radar” and Sec State Clinton sign off on the cross border delivery to a sovereign nation, that allowed military weapons and ATF seeded strawman purchases of 50cal sniper rifles, automatic heavy machine guns to be deliberately gun-walked.
          Clinton was in Mexico giving a speech citing the already debunked “90% of all illegal guns used in Mexico were from border gun shops” lie, to the Mexican Congress, just two weeks before Agent Terry’s death. Clinton knew full well that the true source of M-16s and other military machine guns was the disappearance from Mexican Army stocks by deserting or corrupted higher ups, selling to the narcos.
          And NOTHING gets okayed for cross-border arms movements without a sign off by the principals in the Cabinet- most particularly Sec State and Sec Def, for use of their facilities for transportation and distribution in the host country, the embassys, military liasons, and CIA officers on the payroll there.

          • Dutchman says:

            All sounds right, although you have researched it more than I.
            I know ENOUGH, to know it is FACT. It was done DELIBERATELY, and the Obama admin did NOT do it, (just as with the coup attempt) without ‘sign off’ from the Republicon leadership in Congress.
            GANG of 8 is right; they are a corrupt gang of criminals, running Congress, and much of our country.
            They think they can dictate foriegn policy, trade policy, and the highly questionable activities,of the IC and Justice Dept.
            They are a true Politobeuro, and if one leaves, a clone takes thei place. We MUST end their iron grip on our Government, or they will end US,..and America as we know it.
            God Bless PDJT.

        • Dutchman,
          You have managed to compress a complex series of events into an easily understandable summarization.
          Trying to understand and mentally organize the events of the last few decades has become comparable to trying to take a sip from a fire hose. You have managed to distill the essence of the progression of those seeking a One World Government.

          • Dutchman says:

            Thank you. I try,….I see associations, similarities,…in METHODS, and in OUTCOMES.
            Once you take the RED pill, and see thru the ruses of the Uniparty, MUCH becomes clear.
            Glad my insights can help others to see thru the,B.S.

      • foodog says:

        It also explains the belief in SOCOM around the time of Benghazi that “State is the enemy”, and why CIA was so distrusted, being the errand boys of State.
        And why DIA was plussed up to get good and trusted intel, separate from Langley.
        Which leads partially to the hit on Flynn…
        wheels within wheels, but look at the whiteshoe heritage of Langley, especially after the desk jockey analysts took over from the field operators, beginning under W- remember the CIA back stabbing him? Remember Morell changing the CIA memo to agree with the Ben Rhodes/Rice lie that a YouTube did it?
        Understand why Trump is so dangerous to that whole steaming stew of snakes in DC, from Brennan on down? He cant be bought, and he fights.

    • actually from Camp Bucca in 2009. Closed the camp and freed many future ISIS. Or ISIL, preferred by Obama because the “L” for Levant included Israel.

  3. M Droy says:

    Exactly – all of this has been established well before 2016 though. Flynn told a part of it -which is one reason why they went for Flynn I guess.
    The mystery of how Trump is exiting Syria is only a mystery because no one tells the true tale of how the US entered Syria. Understand that, and the total mess Trump was left with and exiting is pure common sense.
    Remember Obama laughing at the Russia/Iran/Syria/hezbollah coalition and saying he was leading a 65 nation coalition!!

    Obama freed Al-Baghdadi from a US prison in 2009!

  5. Freepetta says:

    ISIS was OBAMA’S baby. He released Baghdadi precisely to form ISIS with the MOST vile, vicious and disgusting terrorists in the world. Obama and Hillary dropped military grade equipment and weapons for them under the guise “moderate rebels.” Armed them like someone would an army. He funded and nurtured them until they developed into the terrorist army they dreamed of. If this isn’t TRAITOROUS I don’t know what is. ??‍♀️
    Why would you disarm our military and fund a terrorist group of SAVAGES?

        He singlehandedly destroyed Sen. Joseph McCarthy’s investigation to expose the growing number and influence of communists in this country. Why did Murrow do that? Murrow was sympathetic to communists.

    Kerry should have been arrested and prosecuted in the early 1970s when he was illegally meeting with the NVC in Paris. If the law had been enforced, with traitors like Kerry, McCain and Fonda, putting them in Leavenworth or the cemetery where they belonged, I think a lot of the problems the USA has endured for the last 50 years of so would have been much less.

      Unfortunately, if its an ‘undeclared war’or ‘police action’, you can’t prosecute for treason.
      THATS one of the reasons we have had ‘undeclared wars’and ‘police actions’ since WW2.
      Silly way to interpret the law, but its my recollection that that is,why Fonda couldn’t be prosecuted for posing on N.Viet AA gun.
      ‘Aid and Comfort to the enemy’has been defined as ONLY an enemy Congress has voted to declare war on.
      And yet, if a soldier had said “I’m not going to fight, cause the viet cong aren’t a ‘Declared enemy’, he would be in big trouble?

  13. Nom de Blog says:

    The above, folded into the deaths of 4 Americans in Benghazi, Libya, represents a betrayal of America.
    We were running guns from former Muammar Gaddafi weapons caches to terrorists in Syria. As best I can tell Obama wanted Assad to fall more than he cared about American lives. And then he paid Iran tens of millions.
    None dare call it treasonous.

    The “why” of the demonization if Russia and Putin snaps clearly into focus

    • Judith says:

      When you can pretty much count on the opposite of whatever the Enemedia insists is truth, it all comes into focus. Basically, USA Deep State traitors have teamed with global totalitarians, who are hell bent on destroying national sovereignty the world over, to facilitate a massive looting and pillaging spree.
      And they are *selling* their “New World Order” to the green algae cake eaters, as an innocent but necessary environmental “imperative.” We need to check our privilege (aka national pride) because we are the world, dontcha know. That’s UN’s Agenda 21 in a nutshell.

          • Rhoda R says:

            The important part seems to be that Vyborg is at the head of the Russian pipeline into Europe. Who ever controls oil to Europe controls oil. And apparently 0bama wanted the mussiez to control Europe.

          • GB Bari says:

            I got that, but it does not tie in clearly to the OP to which this photo was posted as a a Reply..
            The only significant thing I can find about Vyborg is this from Wikipedia:
            “The city hosts the Russian end of the 1,222 km (759 mi) Nord Stream gas pipeline, laid in 2011 and operated by a consortium led by Russia’s Gazprom state hydrocarbons enterprise to pump 55 billion cubic meters (1.9 trillion cubic feet) of natural gas a year under the Baltic to Greifswald, Germany.”
            But does that fact explain the Deep State’s demonization of Russia and Putin?
            I hope “We the people know” can respond.

  18. grrizzly says:

    Kerry: “Well, they, they are targeted by the opposition who we are arming and training.”
    I guess I’m missing something. Wasn’t the Obama administration open about supporting the anti-Assad forces in Syria? ISIS wasn’t the only military force in Syria against Assad. Didn’t Kerry mean that they were supporting the “good” anti-Assad guys not the bad ones (=ISIS)? There’s probably more background here that makes it clear but the transcript doesn’t sound that Kerry admitted that they were arming ISIS.

    • jeans2nd says:

      There were NO “good” anti-Assad guys, grizzly. All were terrorists. Some were ISIS (ISIL), some Al Qaeda, some Al Nusra, etc., but all were terrorists.

    What a horrific legacy of Obama-Clinton-Kerry which they thrust on the USA — the arming ond rise of ISIS. This stain will never be removed, but President Trump did what was in his power. He defeated the Caliphate and killed ISIS’ leader.
    He’s tried to right the horrendous wrong O-C-K did with the support of people like McStain-Linsey plus the cease-fire, safe zone area.
    No wonder Linsey is totally humiliated and humbled in his presser this morning. Facing the music. He can count this his lucky day that POTUS even speaks to him.

    Doug Wead interviewed President Trump about how we defeated ISIS. Also about Reagan’s measured responses in a variety of conflicts.
    “Keep in mind. The Kurds are not a formal ally. The nation of Turkey is. And keep in mind, that the conflict between the Turks and the Kurds is hundreds of years old.”

  25. feathers says:

    The audio speaks for itself but what about the Mosul offensive that started in 2016…under Obama? This was the start of the erosion of ISIS territory. If Kerry/Obama wanted a powerful ISIS to weaken Assad then why reclaim Mosul (which was probably the most significant city within its expanding territory)?

  26. John55 says:

    Official Washington likes to pretend that we’re in Syria to “fight ISIS” and “defend our Kurdish allies”, but the truth is that we got involved Syria to try to depose Assad. Our true reason for being there remains to be opposition to Assad. And Assad has always been an enemy of the Islamic State terrorists.
    Many of the people who we armed and trained to fight Assad are now the Islamic State terrorists fighting against us.
    ” Abu Yusaf, a high-level commander of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), said in August 2014 that many of the FSA members who had been trained by United States’ and Turkish and Arab military officers were now actually joining ISIL. “In the East of Syria, there is no Free Syrian Army any longer. All Free Syrian Army people [there] have joined the Islamic State” he said.”

      • foodog says:

        Assad is a puppet of Iran. Iran wants to establish a Crescent from Tehran to Damascus, of Shia influence, to counter their sworn enemies the Wahhabi House of Saud.
        its all about the oil- look at pipelines routes to Turkey and the east, and how to transport oil at 1/3 the cost from south to north vs sailing in ships around the horn or thru the Suez. There is a classic scene in the movie Syriana with Matt Damon –
        Now, strategically ask:
        Who ever wants to control the price of oil and gas? Or increase profits?
        Who wants to deny his enemy that ability?
        Now look at Putins invasion to establish a chokehold in the eastern Ukraine and Crimea, and support for Assad to keep his warm water port.
        Who benefits from a monopoly on gas provided to Europe in the winter?
        Who benefits from controlling the flow of oil from south to north.
        The Mad Mullahs and the Wahabbis are two sides of a coin- muslim mafias and crime families.

        • John55 says:

          >>”Assad is a puppet of Iran.”
          Supposedly he’s a puppet of Russia. He’s a member of a Muslim sect called the Alawites, who are disliked by both Shia and Sunni Muslims. It’s the Russian connection which is driving the American establishments hostility towards him.

    • ann says:

      Thank you! Makes sense, as in the twisted sick sense of our former foreign & economic policy .

  27. 335blues says:

    “For the hidden plan of Obama/Kerry (and also McCain, Graham, et al), Russia defeating ISIS, al-Qaeda and al-Nusra, upended their objective.”

    our guys found some documents that disclose the roles of McCain, Graham Kerry and Obama in the rise of ISIS?

  28. Doug Amos says:

    Assad was elected by a majority of Syrians in a democratic election. Obama also made American boys fight with an arm and a foot tied behind their backs in his rules of engagement.

    Obama, Kerry, Pelosi, with the aiding and abetting of John McCain SET UP ISIS, FUNDED ISIS, PROTECTED ISIS, and when we caught Al Baghdadi and had him in prison Barack Hussein Obama along with the blessing and thumbs up of Nancy Pelosi LET HIM GO!

      Overweening ego and conceit, and of course the money and power from influence peddling, and the pressure on Assad was just a part of that, and/or over Iran to up the ante.
      Hillary wanted her version of Charleys War, and McCain helped as he was still angry he hadnt gotten his shot to do the same in Georgia against Putin.
      So she had the baksheesh delivered to her Clinton Foundation for any help to the highest bidder, via weapons contracts and grants from State. Remember her bag man dirty sid blumenthal getting caught, with her hand in the cookie jar- and Bubbas in Haiti before that? Thats the purpose of the NON- State email server in her bathroom at home.

    If I was Trump I’d post the audio of the disaster that is Syria straight from Kerry’s own lips with a simple coda: “glad I could get you outta that mess”. We’re not quite there yet (oil fields), but things are moving in the right direction for the first time in nearly a decade.

  40. Mac says:

    Syria. In 2008, the country was stable, with protections for Christians, though led by a rather brutal regime [not unusual in the Middle East]. President Soetoro embarks on his campaign signalling the switch in US foreign policy to support radical Islamic groups. The Us actively support a quiet revolution in Egypt, a loud revolution in Libya and a begins arming and supporting Islamic terror groups [including Al Qaeda, which later spun off ISIL] in Syria. He gains the support of some Republicans, notably John McCain, probably because Assad blocked the construction of a pipeline to transport NG from Qatar to Europe. In other words, the US either created or, at least, facilitated the Syria Civil War. Then, we continued to fund and supply it for the next eight years, knowing full well exactly who we were funding. We, the US, created ISIL/S. We created the problems in Syria. We created the problems in Libya. We created the problems in Egypt. We created the problems in Iraq, by our withdrawal. In other words, we OWN the last 10 years of unrest in the Middle East.

    “When Chief Military Prosecutor of Ukraine Anatoly Matios investigated the fires, he discovered that 80% of weapons and shells in the warehouses were missing. They weren’t destroyed by fire, they weren’t there in the first place.”
