You won’t believe this one, or maybe you will when you realize it came from an Obama CIA Director. In an interview with Charlie Rose, a former CIA director said we are not trying to shut down ISIS’s funding source because Obama is concerned about the environmental harm caused by bombing the oil supply, which we allow Turkey to sell to Israel and others. Next, I suppose Obama will say that the reason Russia did bomb ISIS oil sources was because they don’t care about the environment, which certainly would justify Turkey shooting down their jets.
The web of lies and convoluted foreign policy can make the Middle East turmoil seem confusing. It’s not, if you remember it’s always about oil, gas, and power. The question that everyone should be asking themselves and the President is why are we willing to start a world war so Saudi Arabia and Qatar can replace gas from Russia and Iran? Is it worth it so France and US arms companies can sell more weapons to Saudi Arabia? What about so Turkey can skim more money from the sale of ISIS oil?
Will any political candidate by asked why we have directly funded and supported the expansion of ISIS by providing them armaments, or be asked the real reason we condone the sale of ISIS controlled oil through Turkey? The fact that no one in the mainstream media is asking these questions is further proof the media deserves the same fate as the politician.
If you’re interested in understanding more of what’s really going on in the Middle East, you will find James Corbett’s interview with F. William Engdahl enlightening. Beyond explaining the origin of ISIS, the Muslim Brotherhood, the Mujaheddin, and al-Qaeda, Engdahl connects the dots on the competition for oil supplies and the hidden hand of the CIA. You will also understand why Syria is the prize.
