High-Level U.S. Military Official: U.S. Made a "Wilful Decision" to Support Al Qaeda and Other Terrorists

An internal Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) document produced recently shows that the U.S. knew that the actions of "the West, Gulf countries and Turkey" in Syria might create a terrorist group like ISIS and an Islamic caliphate.

While the powers-that-be have tried to downplay the significance of the document, the former head of the DIA (Michael Flynn) just confirmed its importance.

By any measure, Flynn was a top-level American military commander. Flynn served as:

  • The Director of the U.S. Intelligence Agency
  • The Director of intelligence for Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), the main military agency responsible for targeting Al-Qaeda and other Islamic terrorists
  • The Commander of the Joint Functional Component Command for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance
  • The Chair of the Military Intelligence Board
  • Assistant director of national intelligence

Flynn confirmed the authenticity of the document in a new interview, and said:

[Interviewer] So the administration turned a blind eye to your analysis?

[Flynn] I don’t know that they turned a blind eye, I think it was a decision. I think it was a willful decision.

[Interviewer] A willful decision to support an insurgency that had Salafists, Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood?

[Flynn] It was a willful decision to do what they’re doing.

Postscript: We did the same thing in Libya, Chechnya, and many other countries.
