Turkeys President Recep Erdogan has lashed out at the United States, accusing Washington of supplying crude oil to a rebel group calling itself the Peoples Protection Units, or YPG, which Turkey classifies as related to the Kurdistan Workers Party PKK, which Ankara has designated a terrorist group.
Turkish news outlet Ahval quoted Erdogan as telling local media that, They are currently suppyling terrorist organizations, such as the YPG, in [Syrias] Deir ez-Zor with oil. Terrorist organizations receive 300 million dollars income from crude oil. The comments were made after a meeting Erdogan had with Syrian President Bashar Assad and Vladimir Putin to discuss the future of the war-torn country after the offensive against the last rebel stronghold, Idlib.

The Obama administration likely did.
By supplying the so called “rebels” we are supporting ISIS . I will tell you that this is all about our business deals with Saudi Arabia. They are the Sunni Wahhabi Isis ( Al Qaeda)bastards that attacked this country on 911 . They want the Shiite alawite Assad Government removed because the Sunnis hate them and want their country. The entire thing is about our oil deals with the Sunnis.. To this I say “ RESIST”!
Folks, the rebels Turkey is complaining about are the predominantly Kurdish forces that fought against and defeated (with US support) ISIS.
Absolutely correct. The Kurds have been fighting Turkey for years and are deserving of our support.

That's a complicated move -- we're supplying Kurds with oil, which they then sell for $300 million. /s
Erdogan is going to be humiliated (already is) about Idlib, and is trying to change the subject. Kurdistan will be the joint target of the The Three Amigos (Putin, the ayatoilet, and Erdogan), but first Syria wants to reclaim the area around Idlib. Erdogan stuck his head into a beartrap. Whomever follows him in Turkey will be even worse.
