What a tangled web we weave
No doubt that today’s biggest news story in the mainstream media is ISIS/ISIL and the chaos they have create in, but to completely understand what is going on there you must follow the webs of evidence that have led to a prior prisoner of war leading a militia capable of toppling a new U.S. backed government.
Reports in a Reuters article dated July 18, 2007:
A senior operative for al Qaeda in Iraq who was caught this month has told his U.S. military interrogators a prominent al Qaeda-led group is just a front and its leader (al-Baghdadi) is fictitious, a military spokesman said.
Today the statement above would look preposterous. We all know that al-Baghdadi is the leader of ISIS/ISIL, according to all of our media outlets, and of course they would never lie to the American people.
The name Baghdadi means person of, and direct from Dr. Christof Lehmann, an independent political consultant on conflict and conflict resolution and a wide range of other political issues in region, The was established to try to put an face on what is a foreign-driven network. But the question remains, what foreign network?
Moving forward to 2012:
ISIS/ISIL had been relatively dormant in Iraq while some of its brigades became involved in the admittedly Saudi Arabia, U.S. and Qatar and Turkey sponsored war on. Weapons, other logistic supplies and mercenaries for ISIS were predominantly transported from Saudi Arabia via smuggling routes in the . But, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, was soon caught in a dilemma, although early in his reign as the as leader of Iraq he had the support of U.S. government, He and his Shia run government gained an alliance with Iran, and a regional ally was something very important to an new government.
Al-Maliki decided to appeaseand Tehran by confronting the ISIS/ISIL militants in , he must have believed that Iraq would be next once Damascus would have fallen. When the Iraqi military was ordered to secure the smuggling routes in Al-Anbar (a pipeline to Syria) they confronted Saudi’s, U.S. mercenaries, and ISIS/ISIL, again, this is according to the Iraqi government.
Two fronts, but who is in charge?
After this move by the Iraqi government, the ISIS/ISIL has shifted its focus, and has taken on two battlefronts, one in Syria, and one in Iraq, and again, this is supposedly at the command of a Sunni from Iraq named al-Baghdadi. Could Baghdadi really be a figure head and not the real commander of such a fierce group of fighters?
published an article and video, featuring the interrogation of an ISIS/ISIL fighter who had been captured in Syria. I cannot find the link with an accurate translation online, but, when questioned why ISIS is “shadowing the moves of the Free Syrian Army” and who had given the orders, the captured ISIS fighter states that he didn’t know why, but that the orders were given by Abu Faisal, also known as Prince Abdul Rahman al-Faisal, the brother of and Prince Turki al-Faisal. These are Saudi princes. Surprised yet?
So, according to an ISIS/ISIL member, al-Baghdadi did not give them order, the “supreme commander” of ISIS/ISIL is Prince Abdul Rahman al-Faisal, of the royal Saudi family, Saudi Arabia’s Interior Ministry and its intelligence service. Further proof to this theory is, Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya news channel claimed Prince Abdul Rahman al-Faisal is the ruler of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS/ISIL).
Prince Abdul Rahman al-Faisal is the brother of Prince Turki al-Faisal, Saudi Ambassador to the United-States and.
Al-Qaeda no more
ISIS/ISIL was the Al-Qaeda branch in Iraq and Syria. It figures on the UN list of terrorist organizations. According to Voltaire Network, in an article posted Feb.4th 2014, it is now funded by the United States, by virtue of a law adopted for fiscal year 2014 during a Congressional session behind closed doors. Ayman al-Zawahiri, the current leader of Al-Qaeda, reacted to this revelation by saying that he would peel off the Al-Qaeda label from the ISIS.
I leave the rest up to you. Are the American people being lied to by our media? Is theand the Saudi government running ISIS/ISIL, or is a little known Al-Qaeda operative from Iraq running the show? If he is, why did he directly disobey orders from his Al-Qaeda commanders and break off to fight them as well? Tell me what you think.
