As usual, our readers are getting the story before it is a story. No other media outlet (alternative or otherwise) has picked up this story we are now breaking.
Media reports (see: http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/06/16/us-made-stinger-missiles-have-likely-fallen-into-isis-hands-officials-say/), later tacitly confirmed by the Department of Defense (DOD) before burying the subject, have identified that ISIL possesses Stinger Missiles. The US manufactured Stinger missile is a highly potent, man portable, shoulder launched, anti-aircraft missile that has advanced technology to defeat aircraft counter measures. To see a video of various Stinger Missile variants in action click here: (http://www.military.com/video/guided-missiles/surface-to-air/the-fim-92-stinger-missile/1107957918001/). These missiles pose an extreme threat to any low flying aircraft to include passenger jets. The missiles are considered a highly sensitive weapon system and are heavily controlled due to their potential lethality. As such, the DOD goes to great lengths to prevent these weapons from falling into the wrong hands and they are accounted for individually. Nonetheless, these very dangerous weapons have somehow made their way into the hands of ISIL extremists. The scandal and cover up precipitate from the answer of how these weapons found their way into the hands of ISIL.
The White House would have been happy if the media had never reported that ISIL possessed Stinger missiles. However, it soon became clear that ISIL did possess the missiles and this could not be suppressed (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/jun/17/iraqi-shiites-take-a-stand-against-sunni-extremist/?page=2, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_State_of_Iraq_and_the_Levant, http://www.military.com/video/guided-missiles/surface-to-air/fsa-downs-helo-with-stinger-missile/2207383115001/; http://beforeitsnews.com/strange/2012/08/cia-provides-stinger-missiles-to-syrian-freedom-fighters-2442552.html). Therefore, the White House created a narrative about how the US missiles found their way into terrorist hands. The White House blamed the Iraqi military and claimed the Stingers must have been captured when ISIL overran Iraqi military bases in Mosul. There is just one major problem with this claim. The DOD did not provide the Iraqi military with Stinger missiles and none were stored in Mosul. The truth is that the Stinger missiles ISIL possess were not captured and did not come from Iraq. The White House is fully aware of this fact and has intentionally attempted to cover up the truth. The Stinger Missiles ISIL possesses are missiles the CIA directly provided “moderate” rebel groups in Syria to help them overthrow Syrian President Assad. President Obama cannot plead ignorance on this matter because he had to personally sign the covert action “finding” to arm the rebels with Stingers. President Obama granted this approval after the rebels pleaded for a capability to shoot down Syrian military aircraft that were persistently bombing rebel positions. Counter to President Obama’s claims of supporting only “moderate” rebel factions and our “ability” to ensure any military weaponry the US provides the rebels would not fall into extremist hands, this is exactly what has occurred. President Obama has at best allowed and at worse given terrorists anti-aircraft missiles and is now in complete denial mode!
The White House has been caught in another lie and the media is simply too bought and or too ignorant to identity another major cover up right in front of them. Minimal investigative journalism would have allowed a decent reporter to put the pieces together on wear in fact the ISIL Stinger Missiles actually came from in Syria. What makes this most recent White House scandal so damning and dangerous is the fact that, as we have warned, these anti-aircraft missiles will most likely be used against civilian passenger jetliners in the near future to kill Americans. WHEN it happens, the Obama Administration will no doubt be “caught by surprise” and will have a readymade excuse blaming someone else (like the Iraqi military) for their utter dereliction of their duties to protect Americans. It is your job to make sure the word gets out and you can help fix this if you contact media outlets and your elected representatives and grill them over this scandal. Demand all military aid and support for the terrorist backed rebels in Syria be immediately cut off. Further, demand a full investigation into how these missiles were given to terrorists and insist on prosecution of those responsible under the federal acts prohibiting material support to terrorist organizations.
