Hillary Confirms Saudi Arabia, Qatar Fund ISIS In Leaked Email

Tyler Durden's picture

Over three years after we first reported that one of the two chief sources of funding and support for the "Islamic State" is the small but wealthy nation of Qatar, and long after we also announced that Saudi Arabia had revealed that it was behind ISIS, in a report that was widely disputed, overnight we finally got definitive evidence that it was indeed Qatar and Saudi Arabia that are the main "logistical and financial" supporters of the Islamic State terrorist organization.

In a leaked email sent on August 17, 2014 by Hillary Clinton to her current campaign manager, John Podesta, who back then was counselor to Barack Obama, she admitted that Qatar and Saudi Arabia "are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region."

The email, which was sent just days after the US launched it "temporary" air campaign in Syria, which has now extended over two years, represents an eight-point plan laying out ideas how to defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Clinton’s email said that the United States should engage in "military operations against these very irregular but determined forces" by "making proper use of clandestine/special operations resources, in coordination with airpower, and established local allies" such as Kurdish forces.

Having confirmed the role of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, Hillary then states that "we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia" and recommends to step up US commitment to the Kurdish Regional Government or KRG. "The Qataris and Saudis will be put in a position of balancing policy between their ongoing competition to dominate the Sunni world and the consequences of serious U.S. pressure.  By the same token, the threat of similar, realistic U.S. operations will serve to assist moderate forces in Libya, Lebanon, and even Jordan, where insurgents are increasingly fascinated by the ISIL success in Iraq."

Just as notable was Hillary's warning that ISIS will spread should the US not forecefully engage the terrorist organization to halt its spread: "if we do not take the changes needed to make our security policy in the region more realistic, there is a real danger of ISIL veterans moving on to other countries to facilitate operations by Islamist forces.  This is already happening in Libya and Egypt, where fighters are returning from Syria to work with local forces. ISIL is only the latest and most violent example of this process.  If we don’t act to defeat them in Iraq something even more violent and dangerous will develop.  Successful military operations against these very irregular but determined forces can only be accomplished by making proper use of clandestine/special operations resources, in coordination with airpower, and established local allies. There is, unfortunately, a narrow window of opportunity on this issue, as we need to act before an ISIL state becomes better organized and reaches into Lebanon and Jordan."

Considering that the ISIS state has already reached deep inside Europe, one wonders why the US is more fixated on halting the Russian encroachment, and defense of the Assad government, in Syria than pursuing its stated course.

The revelation comes a day after Reuters reported that the US risks being branded a war criminal for its support of the Saudi war in Yemen, which has led to thousands of innocent civilian casualties, and which is only possible due to US military support and weapons. As a reminder, since March 2015, or when the Saudi conflict in Yemen started, Washington has authorized more than $22.2 billion in weapons sales to Riyadh.

Despite reports that the US is seeking to probe the actions of its mid-east ally, so far there has been no change in US posture and earlier today US officials confirmed there has been no change to US military/logistical support to Saudis after the White HOuse announced an "immediate review."

As a reminder, Qatar has given between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation and Saudi Arabia has donated upwards of $25 million dollars to the Foundation.

1. With all of its tragic aspects, the advance of ISIL through Iraq gives the U.S. Government an opportunity to change the way it deals with the chaotic security situation in North Africa and the Middle East.  The most important factor in this matter is to make use of intelligence resources and Special Operations troops in an aggressive manner, while avoiding the old school solution, which calls for more traditional military operations.  In Iraq it is important that we engage ISIL using the resources of the Peshmerga fighters of the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG), and what, if any, reliable units exist in the Iraqi Army.  The Peshmerga commanders are aggressive hard fighting troops, who have long standing relationships with CIA officers and Special Forces operators.  However, they will need the continued commitment of U.S. personnel to work with them as advisors and strategic planners, the new generation of Peshmerga commanders being largely untested in traditional combat.  That said, with this U.S. aid the Kurdish troops can inflict a real defeat on ISIL. 

2.  It is important that once we engage ISIL, as we have now done in a limited manner, we and our allies should carry on until they are driven back suffering a tangible defeat.  Anything short of this will be seen by other fighters in the region, Libya, Lebanon, and even Jordan, as an American defeat. However, if we provide advisors and planners, as well as increased close air support for the Peshmerga, these soldiers can defeat ISIL.  They will give the new Iraqi Government a chance to organize itself, and restructure the Sunni resistance in Syria, moving the center of power toward moderate forces like the Free Syrian Army (FSA).  In addition to air support, the Peshmerga also need artillery and armored vehicles to deal with the tanks and other heavy equipment captured from the Iraqi army by ISIL.

3.  In the past the USG, in an agreement with the Turkish General Staff, did not provide such heavy weapons to the Peshmerga, out of a concern that they would end up in the hands of Kurdish rebels inside of Turkey.  The current situation in Iraq, not to mention the political environment in Turkey, makes this policy obsolete.  Also this equipment can now be airlifted directly into the KRG zone.

4.  Armed with proper equipment, and working with U.S. advisors, the Peshmerga can attack the ISIL with a coordinated assault supported from the air.  This effort will come as a surprise to the ISIL, whose leaders believe we will always stop with targeted bombing, and weaken them both in Iraq and inside of Syria.  At the same time we should return to plans to provide the FSA, or some group of moderate forces, with equipment that will allow them to deal with a weakened ISIL, and stepped up operations against the Syrian regime.  This entire effort should be done with a low profile, avoiding the massive traditional military operations that are at best temporary solutions.  While this military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region.  This effort will be enhanced by the stepped up commitment in the KRG.  The Qataris and Saudis will be put in a position of balancing policy between their ongoing competition to dominate the Sunni world and the consequences of serious U.S. pressure.  By the same token, the threat of similar, realistic U.S. operations will serve to assist moderate forces in Libya, Lebanon, and even Jordan, where insurgents are increasingly fascinated by the ISIL success in Iraq.

6.  In the end the situation in Iraq is merely the latest and most dangerous example of the regional restructuring that is taking place across North Africa, all the way to the Turkish border.  These developments are important to the U.S. for reasons that often differ from country to country: energy and moral commitment to Iraq, energy issues in Libya, and strategic commitments in Jordan.  At the same time, as Turkey moves toward a new, more serious Islamic reality, it will be important for them to realize that we are willing to take serious actions, which can be sustained to protect our national interests.  This course of action offers the potential for success, as opposed to large scale, traditional military campaigns, that are too expensive and awkward to maintain over time.

7.  (Note: A source in Tripoli stated in confidence that when the U.S. Embassy was evacuated, the presence of two U.S. Navy jet fighters over the city brought all fighting to a halt for several hours, as Islamist forces were not certain that these aircraft would not also provide close ground support for moderate government forces.)

8.  If we do not take the changes needed to make our security policy in the region more realistic, there is a real danger of ISIL veterans moving on to other countries to facilitate operations by Islamist forces.  This is already happening in Libya and Egypt, where fighters are returning from Syria to work with local forces. ISIL is only the latest and most violent example of this process.  If we don’t act to defeat them in Iraq something even more violent and dangerous will develop.  Successful military operations against these very irregular but determined forces can only be accomplished by making proper use of clandestine/special operations resources, in coordination with airpower, and established local allies. There is, unfortunately, a narrow window of opportunity on this issue, as we need to act before an ISIL state becomes better organized and reaches into Lebanon and Jordan.

 9. (Note: It is important to keep in mind that as a result of this policy there probably will be concern in the Sunni regions of Iraq and the Central Government regarding the possible expansion of KRG controlled territory.  With advisors in the Peshmerga command we can reassure the concerned parties that, in return for increase autonomy, the KRG will not exclude the Iraqi Government from participation in the management of the oil fields around Kirkuk, and the Mosel Dam hydroelectric facility.  At the same time we will be able to work with the Peshmerga as they pursue ISIL into disputed areas of Eastern Syria, coordinating with FSA troops who can move against ISIL from the North.  This will make certain Basher al Assad does not gain an advantage from these operations.  Finally, as it now appears the U.S. is considering a plan to offer contractors as advisors to the Iraqi Ministry of Defense, we will be in a position to coordinate more effectively between the Peshmerga and the Iraqi Army.)

What's really incredible is that she knows ISIS is bad news, we know from another email that ISIS can infiltrate the refugees, yet she still insists, from her speeches to Wall Street, that she wants open borders.

So, is she fucking nuts?

The obsession with ISIS is just a cover for Islamaphobes to spew their hate filled rhetoric about Muslims. During the debate, Trump simply dismissed the Muslim American woman who asked him about Islamaphobia, in an appalling display of racism and insensitivity. Only Hillary actually addressed her concerns and said she would so something to end prejudice in America. This is not about 'Islamic Terror' - it's about a small group of radicals, who do not represent Islam in any way!

What was just revealed is that Hillary's Middle East plan is identical to Obama's, more of the same bullshit of warring insurgents clearing the locals, destroying their society, pissing them off like a hord of wasps, then sending them to live in our neighborhoods bent on revenge, all so that the Oligarchs can have their way in the region!

They've nearly cleared the deck all around the Mediterranean of any sort of coherent Government, prepping it for the coming blood bath.  WWlll is chugging along, and this hidden war is about to go off in Syria.  What's ahead is far worse then we're thinking, not like anything before!

OT: Look at how Hillary wound up with her "11 point lead" in the polls:

First off, there were 19% more democrat leaning people polled. Secondly and more important, the polling company received over $220K from Hillary PACS in the past September alone. Rigged much?

... "Photos showing US jets being painted Russian colors have triggered debates and conspiracy theories online, with many saying Washington plans to conduct false flag attacks in Syria and blame them on Moscow. "

... soon, you'll hear the "crimes against humanity" lamestream media propaganda narrative against the Kremlin & Damascus ... no wait, they've done that already ...

... and since when other countries paint their jets with another country's colours?

Making the world safe for preferred pipelines.

=================

How's that supposed to work now that the Turkish Stream agreement has been signed?

The inability to build the big pipeline through Syria leaves Qatar cut off from easy access to the European nat gas market.

Are activities about to amp up dramatically in Syria and northern Iraq?

It's about pipelines, money, and access to markets.

The pipeline war is probably the reason for the stupid hot rhetoric against Putin even though Russia is a nuclear power.

Stupid. Arrogant. Dangerous.

Nice leak.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar fund ISIS with USD on behalf of and as directed by the US.

Like Turkey, they are cut-out operations to hide direct US involvemnt.

Another big tell, the US has a Treasury department specifically tasked with identifying and interdicting terrorist funding channels. They have done less than zero over the ISIS oil looting issue. But then again, guess (((who))) is directly in charge of that department.

He allowed her to run the operation because she already had the infrastructure set up to benefit them both. The Clinton Obama destruction of America through Radical Islamic Mercenaries is a joint venture and both should be tried for treason and shot!

To me as an outsider since I don't live in the US and never have been in the US, I just don't understand this.

If Hillary Clinton was so against ISIS, then how come that the US with ALL their sophisticated weapons, abundant money from the FED couldn't stop them? How is it possible that the Russian Federation accomplished more in one year than the US in the past years all together?

The scond thing I don't get is that George Soros is a supporter of Hillary Clinton. Why is it so that Hillary is against ISIS, but Soros want all those terrorist being spread over the world?

WTF is going on???
