Why Is the U.S. Protecting Terrorists?



U.S. Alliance with Turkey to Support Rebels against Assad

TIA,

This news report below reveals a marriage made in hell if there ever was one. There are about as many "moderate" rebels in the Arab world as there are unicorns.

What we have here is the TRAITOR Obama firmly allying himself with terrorists whom our military have been fighting and dying to protect us from since 9/11. This action of Obama is TREASON, per Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution. He is giving aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war. For this Obama and his enablers need to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law with the commensurate penalty in no uncertain terms!

U.S. & TURKEY AGREE TO PROVIDE AIR PROTECTION FOR TERRORISTS
WHO ARE FIGHTING ASSAD


The Right Scoop


May 26, 2015 - It is being widely reported that the US and Turkey have made an agreement to provide ‘air protection’ for rebels that are being trained and equipped to fight against ISIS, but don’t believe that for a second. What this agreement is really about is taking out Assad. They are just using ISIS as cover:

THE HILL – The U.S. and Turkey have agreed in “principle” to provide air protection to Syrian rebels being trained and equipped to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), according to Turkey’s foreign minister.

“There is a principle agreement on providing air support,” Mevlut Cavusoglu, the Turkish foreign minister told the pro-government Daily Sabah newspaper in comments published Monday, according to The Associated Press. Congress last year approved $500 million for a program to train 15,000 moderate Syrian rebels over three years as a ground force to take on ISIS, but some lawmakers say the U.S. will also have to protect the rebels from both ISIS and the Syrian regime when they go into battle.

“They have to be supported via air,” Cavusoglu told Daily Sabah during a visit to Seoul, the AP reported. “If you do not protect them or provide air support, what is the point?”

Moderate Islam
Here we go again with the ‘moderate Syrian rebels’. There are none. They are all terrorist groups, like Al Qaeda, fighting to oust the Assad regime.

And the Assad regime is what this is all about. Below is the interview between the Turkish Foreign Minister and the Daily Sabah. Note how he says that the Assad regime must be stopped while lying about taking the fight to ISIS:


Interview by the Turkish Foreign Minister to the Daily Sabah

What are Turkey’s expectations from the train-and-equip program?

"We aim to consolidate the moderate opposition in Syria both politically and militarily. We advocate a political resolution, but a significant alternative in the field is also needed. Both ISIS and the regime forces continue their assaults and killings. Aleppo’s defense against these forces is extremely important. Superiority in the field must be provided. As there are no military operations against these forces currently, with this program, we are trying to achieve a balance. The opposition forces are fighting on both fronts; while the fight against ISIS is prioritized, the regime must be also stopped."

Are there any developments regarding the no-fly zone in Syria?

"No-fly and secure zones are a part of the extensive resolution for Syria. However, to provide security for the personnel that were trained and equipped, these are partial solutions."

Is there cooperation with the U.S. in providing air support for the train-and-equip army?

"Of course. They have to be supported via air. If you do not protect them or provide air support, what is the point?"

Does this air support include the use of armed drones from the İncirlik air base?

"These are technical details. There is a principle agreement on providing air support. How it is going to be provided is in the responsibility of the army."

I suspect that if ISIS is fighting the Assad regime, the U.S. and Turkey will provide air protection for that as well.

Eventually it’s possible that Turkey will go after ISIS, but not until the Assad regime is gone. It would be foolish for them to fight both ISIS and Assad at the same time. Remember when Turkey promised ground troops if Obama would go after Assad?

This is definitely not about taking out ISIS.

U.S. War Aircrafts Prevented from Destroying ISIS

TIA,

Yesterday I was reading Il Giornale from Milan, Italy, which reports something I did not see being reported by our media with the necessary publicity. It is that the American pilots are being prevented from destroying ISIS targets.

This has been made by the following trick: A pilot has a target of ISIS in his sights, but cannot shoot it until he receives permission from his base. He asks permission to shoot, but it takes a long time for the base to respond – the delay can even reach 60 minutes. By this time the war plane is far away, the target is out of reach and the enemies have all the time they need to hide. It has been a “bureaucratic” way to prevent our pilots from destroying the militants and facilities of ISIS.

How can this be explained except by an order to protect those criminals? Or are there also American special forces among the militants of ISIS, and the base is protecting them? I don’t’ know which one of the two possibilities is a greater betrayal.

I am sending you the two articles published in Il Giornale. I hope you can translate them for your readers.

But Why Does America NOT Want to Destroy ISIS?

Marcello Foa

Il Giornale - May 29, 2015 - Whoever has been watching for some time the situation in the Middle East already understands what is happening with disappointment: America, which in the years 2000 launched a ferocious war – decisively disproportionate – against Al Qaeda, now appears to be taking a lax stance against a much more concrete threat, that of ISIS.

As I have documented for a time, for several years now ISIS has been armed and financed by Saudi Arabia, the Arab Emirates and the United States itself in an attempt to end the regime of Assad. Thanks to this financing, ISIS grew stronger and larger and went on to conquer large parts of Iraq and has infiltrated its Jihadists into other countries as far away as Libya.

ISIS as we all know is destabilizing the entire region.

America officially says it wants to combat ISIS, and its other Arab allies, officially, do not support the militants of the new caliphate. But something is wrong: All the U.S. would have to do would be to make some missions with intense bombing on the ISIS militias – like those made in Libya – to completely annihilate ISIS. Instead, America allowed some bombing, but with the brake on, limiting itself to symbolic bombings. And, as a matter of fact, the influence of ISIS continues to expand..

Now, the suspicion of analysts is confirmed by the recent denouncements made by American pilots, who affirm they have been stymied by absurd rules of engagement in action, as this article demonstrates. Below is an excerpt:

a fighter jet taking off from an aircraft carrier

A FA-18 takes off from its base but makes no hits

‘Inexplicable delays allow the terrorists to escape as soon as they are targeted: There have been moments when I had groups of ISIS in my sights, but I did not have permission to shoot,’ affirmed a F-18 pilot to Fox News.

The time that passes from the request for authorization to permission to shoot – as the pilots themselves say – would be enormous and unacceptable:

‘To receive authorization to attack an ISIS target, 60 minutes can pass.’ This is so long that the target has plenty of time to move several times. The rules of engaging in action are preventing the war against the caliphate.’

The question naturally arises: Why does America NOT want to destroy ISIS? And why do the European countries, which much more exposed to the jihadist threats, also not act?

Iraq, American Pilots Complain: ‘We Are Not Authorized to Hit ISIS’

Giuseppe di Lorenzo

Il Giornale - May 28, 2015 – Hot polemics in the American Air Force: The pilots who are combating ISIS are complaining about a bureaucracy that prevents them from being effective.

Inexplicable delays allow the terrorists to escape as soon as they are targeted: ‘There have been moments when I had groups of ISIS in my sights but I did not have permission to shoot,’ affirmed a F-18 pilot to Fox News.

The time that passes from the request for authorization for permission to shoot – as the pilots themselves say – would be enormous and unacceptable: ‘To receive authorization to attack an ISIS target, 60 minutes can pass.’ This is so long that the target has plenty of time to move several times. The rules of engaging in action are preventing the war against the caliphate.’

What the American Air Force is facing is a second scandal, after the accusation made by the Iraqi prime minister against the Obama administration. Last week, Haider al Abadi asked the United States to ‘change its strategy,’ because the air raids against the troops of Al-Bahgdadi have shown themselves to be insufficient. Not only insufficient, but also ineffective. According to pilots and ex-commanders, the procedures established for permitting the American aircraft to release their bombs on the terrorists are excessive and counter-productive.

American pilots puzzled by the procedure of permission to hit

An ex-official who led previous campaigns in Iraq said that ‘the process to authorize a hit is too slow and wastes precious minutes that allow the enemy to flee.’ Echoing these statements is David Deptula, ex-commander of the Combined Air Operations Center in Afghanistan: ‘The procedures do not take into consideration the new operative context. They are too much time-consuming, and in the end only serve to give an advantage to our enemies.’

What is shocking is the frustration of the pilots now deployed against ISIS. One pilot, who has been in the Iraqi sky often, reports that more than once he was unable to accomplish his mission. ‘[The ISIS members] were probably killing someone,' he told Fox News, 'because it was impossible for me to kill them. It is very frustrating.’

The criticisms refer also to the strategy decided by Obama in the war against ISIS. Deptula compared it to previous air efforts of America in the Middle East wars. During the Gulf War the United Sates made an average of 1,125 air attacks per day. In Kosovo, about 135 per day. In 2003 in Iraq in ‘hit and run’ tactics campaign, American raids numbered an average of 800 per day. The attacks against ISIS, however, are only 14 per day. Too few to stop the Caliphate’s march toward Baghdad. Further, according to senator John Cain, ‘75% of the pilots return to their bases without having used all their firing power, and this is caused by delays in the chain of command.’

The U.S. Air Force spokesman obviously denied everything. According to the official version, the time spent to authorize a pilot to shoot a target would be variable, in some cases even ‘less than 10 minutes.’ Although sometimes, he admits, it takes ‘much more time.’ The Pentagon justifies this long period before engaging by saying that 'we cannot run the risk of indiscriminately hitting civilians.’

Although defending itself against attacks and criticism from the enemies can be relatively simple for the Pentagon since it can just return the critique to the sender, it cannot just brush them off when the accusers are their own pilots. This is embarrassing in a war where the United States appears not to be fully engaging itself.
