Iran Claims Proof Of 'Direct US Support" For ISIS Days After Congressman Dana Rohrabacher Floats The Idea

Content originally generated at

Last Thursday, Congressman Dana Rohrabacher praised ISIS for coordinated terrorist attacks in Tehran which left 17 civilians dead - then suggested that the United States should support the terrorist organization in their endeavors to bring regime change to Iran, comparing the situation to working with Stalin's Russia to get Hitler.

Rohrabacher: Isn't it a good thing for us to have Untied States finally backing up Sunnis who will attack Hezbollah and the Shiite threat to us? Isn't that a good thing? And if so, maybe this is a Trump strategy of actually supporting one group against another considering that you have terrorist organizations.


Maybe it's a good idea to have radical Muslim terrorists fighting each other?


Dr. Asher: Having coordinated the economic warfare plan against the Islamic State, I would not condone an attack by the Islamic State. I would be determined to destroy them.



Three days later, Iran says that's exactly what's happening...

Iran's Fars news agency reports that Iran possess documents claiming to prove that the United States provides "Direct" support to ISIS. According to deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces - Major General Mostafa Izadi, Iran is "facing a proxy warfare in the region as a new trick by the arrogant powers against the Islamic Republic."

As the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution (Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei) said, we possess documents and information showing the direct supports by the US imperialism for this highly disgusting stream (the ISIL) in the region which has destroyed the Islamic countries and created a wave of massacres and clashes -Fars

As ZeroHedge notes, Izadi's statement echoed remarks made by Iranian politician Ali Larijani last Friday - who pointed a finger directly at the United States for last week's terrorist attacks in Tehran. At a funeral ceremony for the victims, Larijani said "The United States has aligned itself with the ISIL in the region,"

Turkey's Erdogan claimed that the US supports ISIS

In December 2016, Turkish President Erdogan said "he has evidence that the US supported terrorists in Syria, including ISIS."

They were accusing us of supporting Daesh [Islamic State],” he told a press conference, according to Reuters.

“Now they give support to terrorist groups including Daesh, YPG, PYD. It's very clear. We have confirmed evidence, with pictures, photos and videos. -Erdogan

And in July of 2016, Julian Assange made a similar claim. Additionally - according to Wikileaks and the Podesta emails, Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been supporting ISIS as well.

Iran hasn't said if or when they will release proof of US support for ISIS/ISIL. Better not be trolling...

 In the meantime, perhaps US politicians would be wise not to cheerlead for support of one of the most brutal organizations on the planet. If the USA is in fact funding ISIS - that entire operation needs to be shut down and those responsible held to account.

 "Isn't it a good thing for us to have United States finally backing up Sunnis who will attack Hezbollah and the Shiite threat to us?"By "us" he means Israel of course. if Washington wasn't occupied by the Jewish lobby, the likes of Hezbollah, Iran and Syria would be natural allies of the US against Wahhabi/Salafist terror and their state sponsors

WOW! "We have confirmed evidence, with pictures, photos and videos." -Erdogan. I wonder if he has snapshots, movies and drawings as well. This is an even gooder batch of evidence than the good evidence the Iranians have and we all know what truthers those guys are.

We know the Obama administration and Hillary state department facilitated the rise of ISIS and nurtured it's growth. One question of many as we consider this crime against humanity ,,did they consider the Christian genocide in the middle east perpetrated by their ISIS project  a feature or a bug ?

Tulsi Gabbard's Stop Arming Terrorists Act has about 10 backers in Congress“For years, the U.S. government has been supporting armed militant groups working directly with and often under the command of terrorist groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda in their fight to overthrow the Syrian government.

from the first hyperlink in your post, "The legislation is cosponsored by Reps. Peter Welch (D-VT-AL), Barbara Lee (D-CA-13), Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA-48), and Thomas Massie (R-KY-04), and supported by the Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) and the U.S. Peace Council."I never thought I'd see Barbara Lee and Dana Rohrabacher on the same side of anything.

This legislation is no longer necessary, but rather problematic under Trump. Tulsi was fooled by Assad and Iran who created the illusion that Assad was a righteous president keeping his country together. They fooled Putin, too. In fact Assad is still a butcher and he is a tool of Iran's project to grab Iraq and Syria and Lebanon, and the rest of the Middle East.

Missing funds at that scale are grounds for instant termination (or suspension of employment until the funds are found and the path of their travels are determined) in the REAL world.

But nothing is done in government.

They hold a low-key press conference and say, "Yep, there is a LOT of money missing and we are sort of looking for it." ........... And that's it.

Never mentioned again. .. No one is charged with theft or embezzlement. .. No one is audited. .. No one goes to jail. ... Nothing.

Do we get to make a citizen's arrest yet?

At the end of thirty days if the funds are not found after an announcement like that the office that announces said loss all go to jail. ... All of them.

Live Hard, We Could Reward The Arresting Citizens With A Percentage Of the Recovered Funds Straight From The Perp's Overseas Bank Accounts, Die Free

Perhaps I don't understand all of the nuances of this, but from my simple perspective, this is a VERY BAD IDEA! what could POSSIBLY go wrong?? Look guys, just make it easy for everyone: locate, close with and destroy ALL Muslim terrorists...PERIOD.

The US has been covertly funding ISIS for years.  ISIS is the US proxy for regime change in Syria.  Remember videos of all those white Toyota pickup trucks ISIS was running around in?  Guess who funded those.  None other than US intelligence with a little help from our NATO friends in Turkey.

Why weren't any US officers punished for "mistaken" drops of supplies to ISIS? How did ISIS get all those new Toyotas? How come the US doesn't destroy ISIS convoys of oil?

Hate Iran is an emotional argument. No true American trusts Iran is the No True Scotsman argument. Anything from Iran is bad is a genetic argument. All are fallacious.

Truth has no ethnic origin. Please, Iran, for the betterment of America reveal any duplicitous acts of our leaders.

Why then,

You stupid Iranians,

Are you buying 80 Boeing passenger jets from the Americans, worth billions?

Because then you stupid Iranians are also stupidly supporting ISIS by investing in the American economy which supplies ISIS.

The Iranians are stupid and the Russians are collaborating with the Americans, the proof being the Russians condone the invasion of their allies, the Syrians' territory, by the Americans. The Russians also facilitate the bombing of Syrian troops by American and Israeli jets. And those stupid Iranians also bought outdated S-300 SAMs from the Russians.

You have evil on one side (Americans, Russians, ISIS, Israel, and the Saudi Muslim terrorists) and idiots and incompetents on the other (Iranians, Shias and countries that are like weathercocks, such as Turkey and Qatar. How can the Turks collaborate with the Saudis who betrayed them?)

Obama and Hillary supported ISIS with money and arms.  That, after all, was why the CIA and State Department were in Benghazi - with Qatar supposedly paying for the arms shipments.Obama was sure to send pallets of cash to Iran before he left office.Iran was a secular country before the return of the exiles Islamic extremists - who, by the way, lived in Paris during their exile.Women wore western dress and enjoyed the freedom of western societies.President Trump is telling the Arab states to clean up their own mess with increasingly less help from the US.  Good for Trump.  Good for us.

"President Trump is telling the Arab states to clean up their own mess with increasingly less help from the US.  Good for Trump.  Good for us."Bullshit - SA is biggest terrorist in MENA next to US. The arms deal Trump executed with SA (who has been supporting ISIS) is an indication that Regime Change for Syria is still working.The US is on the Syrian border with troops and Jordanian troops and Tanks/Arty and attacking SAA affiliates - this is more proof US is helping ISIS and SA.

Dumb-ass, I voted for Trump and have appreciated his accomplishments so far. BUT, one of the major items was to eliminate ISIS. Since Obama and Hillary were supporting ISIS (weapons - directly to al-Qaeda or indirectly SA/Qatar thru Benghazi, and intelligence) and Trump said he was going to eliminate ISIS, then why is he still supporting SA and Regime Change for Syria; maybe it is for Israel.How is Iran the Bad Guy? What have they done, besides supporting their ally Syria. SA is the major country in MENA that promulgates terrorism throughout MENA - why isn't SA recognized as the Bad Guy by the US?

It was obvious going back to code-named Tim Osman (Osama Bin Laden for all you proles) who was the CIA funded leader for the afgan rebels against the Russkies.  Further proof was shown by USA soldiers "guarding" the poppy fields from the Taliban.  Then of course, there are the many videos of the 3 day convoy of armed yellow Toyotas that, in spite of the most sophisticated satellite surveillance available, were never attacked by US planes or warships sitting just miles away off the coast.

ISIS is not a "new trick".  Formation of a rebel force to oust Assad was conceptualized around 2013, maybe earler.  Since Britain was in on it, rest assured the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia were on board from the beginning.  The US, having sold ISIS as a major threat for all this time throught the use of MSM propaganda, can't really admit they were lying all along, even though anyone with half a brain and a keyboard knows the truth.

Terrorism = good for a government. Don't you think the US and its allies with all their weapons, spying ability and cash would have been able to swat it away by now?Look at them with their 20 year old AK47s and 125,000 mile Toyota pickups...Same with the 'war' on drugs. Good for them, not good for us.

At least the government finally admits they are in bed with the Salifist Sunnis.  Hey Roherndouche - care to take a guess at the numbers of terrorist attacks perpetrated by Sunnis against the West vis-a-vis by Shiites? Stupid mother fucker.
