General Michael Flynn Admits That Obama Knowingly Armed ISIS Committing Treason (Video)

A PolitiFact report states that Obama authorized a CIA-program that trained and armed Syrian rebels, not ISIS, to counter president Bashar al-Assad.

A PolitiFact report states that Obama authorized a CIA-program that trained and armed Syrian rebels, not ISIS, to counter president Bashar al-Assad.An article by PBS News Hour claims that the Obama administration authorized a covert CIA program to train and arm moderate Syrian rebels to put pressure on the Assad regime. The PolitiFact report concludes that the program had its flaws, including that CIA-provided weapons were systematically stolen and sold on the black market, ending up in enemy hands. Furthermore, it states that a declassified Defense Intelligence Agency document contained nothing that suggested the United States or its allies intentionally "facilitated" the rise of ISIS in their efforts to oppose Assad. Therefore, there is no evidence the program ever trained known members of or supplied weapons to ISIS.
