Skip to comments.Blowback! U.S. trained ISIS at secret Jordan base

JERUSALEM Members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, were trained in 2012 by U.S. instructors working at a secret base in Jordan, according to informed Jordanian officials.
The officials said dozens of ISIS members were trained at the time as part of covert aid to the insurgents targeting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria. The officials said the training was not meant to be used for any future campaign in Iraq.
The Jordanian officials said all ISIS members who received U.S. training to fight in Syria were first vetted for any links to extremist groups like al-Qaida.

Apparently our new foreign policy is to train all the Arabs to kill each other.
Not that McCain needs to look stupid-er, but all of this shows just how stupid he was when he was advocating for arming and training the Syrian terrorists. A plan that would have come back to bite us hard. It has anyway, actually.
All of this training/arming bs needs to stop because it is completely un-vetted and out of control.
Oh, well, OK then. Good to know Obama was careful. /S
And then us.
John McCain aka McQueeg had his hand in this fiasco. Maybe some others Republicans. If so I sure would like to know who.
A lot of us here on FR had always wondered how you could tell the good guys from the bad guys. As we are finding out you can’t.
I posted earlier that all military equipment we ‘give’ to other nations should include a simple kill switch we could activate if the materiel is being used against our interests.
I suggest the same kind of technology be surgically and irreversibly implanted in every foreign soldier we train.
Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. 2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: 6 the tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; 8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.
9 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison: 10 which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna: 12 who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.
13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind. 14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;
15 so persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm. 16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord.
17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: 18 that men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.
This is no surprise since we also trained and/or funded Saddam Hussein, Ayatollah Khomeini, members of the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda. We are deliberately creating a virulent, organized jihadi Middle East. Then, we can be shocked,...SHOCKED, I TELL YOU!, that these monsters are acting monstrously. The military-industrial complex, of which Eisenhower warned us, will have what they really want: World War 3.
Didn’t even realize at first that graphic was using the earth and a star (Sun) ....
... similar to the moon and a star from that other religion ....
Similar, but NOT THE SAME!!!
What a joke.
Nothing in this "report" is believable in the slightest.
Hmmm, wonder if there’s a good reason not to train terrorists in the tactics they need to fight against our military effectively.
Same goes for allowing China to participate in our war games.
We have the absolute worst leadership this nation has ever seen.
Folks, we are headed into oblivion, if we don’t call the traitors out and demand change.
Perhaps FSA then and now members of ISIS.
Zorg: I hate warriors, too narrow-minded. I’ll tell you what I do like though: a killer, a dyed-in-the-wool killer. Cold blooded, clean, methodical and thorough. Now a real killer, when he picked up the ZF-1, would’ve immediately asked about the little red button on the bottom of the gun.
“Apparently our new foreign policy is to train all the Arabs to kill each other.”
For over 10 years we have supposedly been training the Iraqi and Afghani military and police.
At Mosul 10,000 regular Iraqi soldiers ran from the fight with 800 terrorists.
Tell me again how “nation building” and “training soldiers and police” worked out?
Maybe reverting to their natural customs and practices of killing each other will be an improvement.
members of the Muslim Brotherhood
Also not true.
But good for a laugh - or an Alex Jones article, or a WND article, or a Nation article, or a DailyKos post.
