Presidet Donald Trump has long been calling out Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for being the cofounders of ISIS. Now, Obama’s former national security advisor Ben Rhodes has slipped up and admitted that Obama armed ISIS.
Zero Hedge reported that Rhodes sheepishly answered in the affirmative when interviewer Mehdi Hasan asked him about supporting jihadists in Syria.
Did you intervene too much in Syria? Because the CIA spent hundreds of millions of dollars funding and arming anti-Assad rebels, a lot of those arms, as you know, ended up in the hands of jihadist groups, some even in the hands of ISIS,” Hasan asked. “Your critics would say you exacerbated that proxy war in Syria; you prolonged the conflict in Syria; you ended up bolstering jihadists.”
Rhodes tried to deflect by rambling about his book and “second guessing” Syria policy, but Hasan pulled him back by saying, “Oh, come on, but you were coordinating a lot of their arms.”
“Well, I was going to say: Turkey, Qatar, Saudi,” Rhodes stammered.
“You were in there as well,” Hasan said.
“Yeah, but, the fact of the matter is that once it kind of devolved into kind of a sectarian-based civil war with different sides fighting for their perceived survival, I think we, the ability to bring that type of situation to close, and part of what I wrestled with in the book is the limits of our ability to pull a lever and make killing like that stop once it’s underway,” Rhodes said.
The publication Newsweek previously mocked Trump for spreading “conspiracy theories” surrounding the rapid rise of ISIS.
“President Donald Trump has done little to dispel the myth of direct American support for ISIS since he took office. On the campaign trail in 2016, Trump claimed—without providing any evidence—that President Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton co-founded the group and that ISIS “honors” the former president,” one Newsweek article stated.
