Operatives from the Obama administration are now in a scramble as their highly-unethical programs of train-and-equip has come into the light via a tell-all exclusive. The Obama administration had created at least two programs with the supposed sole purpose of providing assistance to various Free Syrian Army (FSA) opposition factions within Syria. The programs were ultimately scrapped after a legacy full of shoddy mistakes and bad judgement. In the end, these Obama-era ambitions became a case test for those who oppose regime change by the U.S. government.
According to the individual who brokered the deal himself, weapons were placed directly into the hands of islamic terrorists after a botched and poorly thought-out operation by the Obama administration. The source, who had defected from the Syrian army in 2012, claims that he was in direct communication with Al Qaeda’s branch, Al Nusra, in order to gain safe passage for him and his soldiers through a two hour journey from North Aleppo to West Aleppo. This individual was Major Anas Ibrahim Obaid, who is likely better known as Abu Zayd, from his battlefield nickname. Abu’s team was a pentagon-trained task force named “division 30,” which has now been accusing (obviously) of betraying the united state. Zayd told Fox News that, from the comfort of his home in the western Aleppo area, In exchange, the Al-qaeda associate Al-nusra was then given five pickup trucks and ammunition. Division 30 was the Zayd-led militant faction in Syria whose fighters graduated from a US-led training programme in Turkey. The Turkey-based cause was supposedly to forge a force on the ground in Syria to fight against ISIS. Trucks, weapons and ammunition were issued to Zayd by the United States in 2015, as part of a $500 million Department of Defense effort to “train and equip” a new “ideologically moderate” force to combat ISIS. The program, designed to funnel arms to so-called moderate Syrian rebels, proved to be a incredible miscalculation for the Obama administration.
Another huge miscalculation was explained by Suheil Alhamoud, who was also a Free Syrian army defect. Alhamoud explained that, after a spree of several successful attacks against ISIS forces, he had received a supply of malfunctioning TOWs(anti-tank missiles). Despite having a stated range of more than two miles, some missiles would travel no more than 150 feet. Alhamoud explain that he and his team suffered because of this.. “And so the regime and the terrorists advanced. We were told more TOWs would come, but it took weeks for them to arrive.” Alhamoud goes on to say. Alhamoud has also admitted that Al Nusra managed to steal a number of TOWs, which are worth up to $30,000 apiece.
Although the CIA has declined to comment on this story, a spokesperson for the Defense Department(DOD) acknowledged that the Obama administration “clearly faced challenges” with the now-discontinued train-and-equip effort.You would think with all the recorded failures and backfires from the program, Obama would have learned his lesson and shut it down. That’s not what happened though. The program didn’t get shut down until Trump came into office. With at least one government official now admitting failure in their tactics, I think we can all agree this should be a lesson to learn from.
