Amnesty International: US Gave ISIS $1 Billion Worth of Arms in 2016

The US army gave $1 billion worth of arms and equipment to ISIS in Iraq during President Obama’s final year in office, according to Amnesty International.

The human rights group said the figures came from a 2016 US government audit, obtained through a Freedom of Information request.

“This audit provides a worrying insight into the US Army’s flawed — and potentially dangerous system for controlling millions of dollars’ worth of arms transfers to a hugely volatile region,” Patrick Wilcken, Amnesty’s researcher on international arms control, said in a statement.

“It makes for especially sobering reading given the long history of leakage of US arms to multiple armed groups committing atrocities in Iraq, including the armed group calling itself the Islamic State.”

Congresswoman vs CNN

Hawaii Rep. Gabbard went to Syria on a secret fact-finding mission to wade through the lies and propaganda and find out what is really happening on the ground.

Immediately on her return CNN booked her for an “exclusive” interview – and Gabbard told them exactly what they didn’t want to hear: she has proof the Obama administration was funding ISIS and Al-Qaeda.

Explaining to Jake Tapper that she met people from all walks of life in Aleppo and Damascus, Gabbard said that Syrians “expressed happiness and joy at seeing an American walking their streets.”

But they also wanted to know “why is it that the United States, its allies and other countries, are providing support, are providing arms, to terrorist groups like Al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda, ISIS, who are on the ground there, raping, kidnapping, torturing, and killing the Syrian people?

From the Amnesty International article.

In response to the audit, the US military has pledged to tighten up its systems for tracking and monitoring future transfers to Iraq. 

However, the DoD made almost identical commitments in response to a report for Congress as long ago as 2007 that raised similar concerns.

Just more confirmation of what we already know....

Gee, we just can't keep track of a Billion dollars worth of deadly weapons........:blink:

But, they want to know about every penny I have in my pocket.

I like Gabbard, she seems like the real deal..........
