Sharmine Narwani sent me this article from Levant Report  a few days ago and I provided the link for my readers.  But, I think we need to more than that in helping this article to reach people in the mainstream. Please, tell your friends about it, especially the contrarians and naysayers who populate too many acres of this planet.

2012 Defense Intelligence Agency document: West will facilitate rise of Islamic State “in order to isolate the Syrian regime”

May 19, 2015 by Brad Hoff 35 Comments

https://levantreport.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/dia-2012-syria-islamic-state1.jpg?w=864&h=634&resize=700%2C514On Monday, May 18, the conservative government watchdog group Judicial Watch published a selection of formerly classified documents obtained from the U.S. Department of Defense and State Department through a federal lawsuit.

While initial mainstream media reporting is focused on the White House’s handling of the Benghazi consulate attack, a much “bigger picture” admission and confirmation is contained in one of the Defense Intelligence Agency documents circulated in 2012: that an ‘Islamic State’ is desired in Eastern Syria to effect the West’s policies in the region.

Astoundingly, the newly declassified report states that for “THE WEST, GULF COUNTRIES, AND TURKEY [WHO] SUPPORT THE [SYRIAN] OPPOSITION… THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A DECLARED OR UNDECLARED SALAFIST PRINCIPALITY IN EASTERN SYRIA (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE SUPPORTING POWERS TO THE OPPOSITION WANT, IN ORDER TO ISOLATE THE SYRIAN REGIME…”.

The DIA report, formerly classified “SECRET//NOFORN” and dated August 12, 2012, was circulated widely among various government agencies, including CENTCOM, the CIA, FBI, DHS, NGA, State Dept., and many others.

The document shows that as early as 2012, U.S. intelligence predicted the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), but instead of clearly delineating the group as an enemy, the report envisions the terror group as a U.S. strategic asset.

While a number of analysts and journalists have documented long ago the role of western intelligence agencies in the formation and training of the armed opposition in Syria, this is the highest level internal U.S. intelligence confirmation of the theory that western governments fundamentally see ISIS as their own tool for regime change in Syria. The document matter-of-factly states just that scenario.

Forensic evidence, video evidence, as well as recent admissions of high-level officials involved (see former Ambassador to Syria Robert Ford’s admissions here and here), have since proven the State Department and CIA’s material support of ISIS terrorists on the Syrian battlefield going back to at least 2012 and 2013 (for a clear example of “forensic evidence”: see UK-based Conflict Armament Research’s report which traced the origins of Croatian anti-tank rockets recovered from ISIS fighters back to a Saudi/CIA joint program via identifiable serial numbers).

The newly released DIA report makes the following summary points concerning “ISI” (in 2012 “Islamic State in Iraq,”) and the soon to emerge ISIS:

  • Al-Qaeda drives the opposition in Syria
  • The West identifies with the opposition
  • The establishment of a nascent Islamic State became a reality only with the rise of the Syrian insurgency (there is no mention of U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq as a catalyst for Islamic State’s rise, which is the contention of innumerable politicians and pundits; see section 4.D. below)
  • The establishment of a “Salafist Principality” in Eastern Syria is “exactly” what the external powers  supporting the opposition want (identified as “the West, Gulf Countries, and Turkey”) in order to weaken the Assad government
  • “Safe havens” are suggested in areas conquered by Islamic insurgents along the lines of the Libyan model (which translates to so-called no-fly zones as a first act of ‘humanitarian war’; see 7.B.)
  • Iraq is identified with “Shia expansion” (8.C)
  • A Sunni “Islamic State” could be devastating to “unifying Iraq” and could lead to “the renewing facilitation of terrorist elements from all over the Arab world entering into Iraqi Arena.” (see last non-redacted line in full PDF view.)

_____________________________________________

The following is excerpted from the seven page DIA declassified report (bold-facing is my own):

R 050839Z AUG 12

THE GENERAL SITUATION:

A. INTERNALLY, EVENTS ARE TAKING A CLEAR SECTARIAN DIRECTION.

B. THE SALAFIST [sic], THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, AND AQI ARE THE MAJOR FORCES DRIVING THE INSURGENCY IN SYRIA.

C. THE WEST, GULF COUNTRIES, AND TURKEY SUPPORT THE OPPOSITION; WHILE RUSSIA, CHINA AND IRAN SUPPORT THE REGIME.

3. (C) Al QAEDA – IRAQ (AQI):… B. AQI SUPPORTED THE SYRIAN OPPOSITION FROM THE BEGINNING, BOTH IDEOLOGICALLY AND THROUGH THE MEDIA

4.D. THERE WAS A REGRESSION OF AQI IN THE WESTERN PROVINCES OF IRAQ DURING THE YEARS OF 2009 AND 2010; HOWEVER, AFTER THE RISE OF THE INSURGENCY IN SYRIA, THE RELIGIOUS AND TRIBAL POWERS IN THE REGIONS BEGAN TO SYMPATHIZE WITH THE SECTARIAN UPRISING. THIS (SYMPATHY) APPEARED IN FRIDAY PRAYER SERMONS, WHICH CALLED FOR VOLUNTEERS TO SUPPORT THE SUNNI’S [sic] IN SYRIA.

7. (C) THE FUTURE ASSUMPTIONS OF THE CRISIS:

A. THE REGIME WILL SURVIVE AND HAVE CONTROL OVER SYRIAN TERRITORY.

B. DEVELOPMENT OF THE CURRENT EVENTS INTO PROXY WAR: …OPPOSITION FORCES ARE TRYING TO CONTROL THE EASTERN AREAS (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), ADJACENT TO THE WESTERN IRAQI PROVINCES (MOSUL AND ANBAR), IN ADDITION TO NEIGHBORING TURKISH BORDERS. WESTERN COUNTRIES, THE GULF STATES AND TURKEY ARE SUPPORTING THESE EFFORTS. THIS HYPOTHESIS IS MOST LIKELY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE DATA FROM RECENT EVENTS, WHICH WILL HELP PREPARE SAFE HAVENS UNDER INTERNATIONAL SHELTERING, SIMILAR TO WHAT TRANSPIRED IN LIBYA WHEN BENGHAZI WAS CHOSEN AS THE COMMAND CENTER OF THE TEMPORARY GOVERNMENT.

8.C. IF THE SITUATION UNRAVELS THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A DECLARED OR UNDECLARED SALAFIST PRINCIPALITY IN EASTERN SYRIA (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE SUPPORTING POWERS TO THE OPPOSITION WANT, IN ORDER TO ISOLATE THE SYRIAN REGIME, WHICH IS CONSIDERED THE STRATEGIC DEPTH OF THE SHIA EXPANSION (IRAQ AND IRAN)

8.D.1. …ISI COULD ALSO DECLARE AN ISLAMIC STATE THROUGH ITS UNION WITH OTHER TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS IN IRAQ AND SYRIA, WHICH WILL CREATE GRAVE DANGER IN REGARDS TO UNIFYING IRAQ AND THE PROTECTION OF ITS TERRITORY.

  1. donbacon says:May 19, 2015 at 9:16 pmThanks for this report, I’ve added it to me piece on the Caliphate. ISIS formed as a direct result of the US divide-and-conquer strategy formed mostly in Iraq. We now see a budding Kurdistan and a Sunni-stan, in line with the Yinon Plan promoted by Israel. This explains Obama’s hesitant and limited response to ISIS. It’s all explained here.

  3. causticlogic says:May 22, 2015 at 11:57 amJust to quibble – the timing here lines up better with a plot to create Jabhat al-Nusra than to create IS. The former still enjoy wide support and a free pass despite being AL QAEDA, no less. They appeared in Syria, taking places like Raqqah, starting about 4 months after this document, or maybe a bit earlier. In that light, or either way, very interesting document.

    However I note IS/Daesh has played “bad cop” to the JaN “good cop” quite well, letting JaN blithely administer parts of Syria without any real worry, to present dead babies and stories on video and get believed, despite being AL QAEDA … suggested possibility: even though this document doesn’t prove it, the West and allies also support ISIS, as Turkey for one clearly has, most time and in most ways it can … in the end it’s to get their real creation accepted as a nice “middle choice.” ANd helps the Saudis et al. throw away some of their most psychopathic products, released from prison sometimes to a commuted sentence of death by killing as many infidels as possible first, in pursuit of a caliphate they’ll never be allowed to keep – they’re just agents of destruction. And the “bad cop” that let’s JaN come out the likely winner.

Therefore, they need their news and information served up in EUPHEMISTIC terms in order that their feelings don’t get hurt, or that they visualize anything unpleasant to their muddled little senses!

  7. Road to Servitude says:May 23, 2015 at 9:16 amOne of the saddest things of all is that when this happens, it is not REMOTELY surprising to any of us; wherever we were born, wherever we live, wherever we are a citizen, all this stuff is, at most, shocking; but certainly not surprising.

    What sort of a world does every one of us live in? It’s tempting to just groan and say “no shit!” But I’m grateful to everyone who is disseminating this info. I’ve posted on my blog too, because this is stuff which can’t be just ignored. Thanks to both the Levant Report and Judicial Watch (of course!), and everyone else who are not letting this one slide.

    • Virginia Cotts Rn Bsn says:May 24, 2015 at 4:28 amWell, despite a lot of knowledge and cynicism about what is going on behind the scenes, this really is making me surprised and furious. It just continues to amaze me that supposedly religious people are behind all this crap. As an atheist I am labeled as having no moral values. Some days I fervently hope there is a God who will punish these depraved fools. Alternatively, the corporations will keep destroying the ecosystems to the point humans and most other species will disappear. Every year I am more relieved that neither of my children will have any. So I also appreciate the dissemination and will try to do something myself.

      • Road to Servitude says:May 26, 2015 at 12:10 amYou are right. If by any chance there actually may be a God and a Heaven, I think a certain number of self-styled “solid godly types” will be surprised by what is awaiting them for all their “good service to the Almighty.” And please keep up the good work with the dissemination and awareness-raising, there may be light at the end of the tunnel some time in the near future. Although online is a double (or thousand) edged sword, at least with the internet, people can spread this info easily.

    Some of us learned that, Al CIA duh, is a Langley boogieman asset used to scare the public into surrender. (Langley is used here as a metonym for the CIA. The CIA is headquartered in Langley, Virginia, a few miles west of DC.)
    Because an eight year old figured out, “Al CIA duh”, MSM now sells U$ an Al CIA duh 2.0 named I$I$, to scare U$ out of our money and our right to question government. We are forced to surrender our rights, to the fascist murderers that run the US from behind the ‘secret’ curtain. Eventually this curtain will open to display the NWO Fourth-Reich-Я-U$ show.
    Secret government is by definition, a criminal enterprise.
    IT serves the military-surveillance-police-state plutocracy.
    Why would we fail to realize we are TV Zombies being sold the Islamic State as another fear premium false flag? TV is virtual reality hypnosis, not reality. Turn off corporate $ell-O-vision, keep the fear mongering MSM lies out of our minds.

    It is all of a piece: global power. Who’s New World Order will rule the world and all its resources and wealth?

“War on Syria: Gateway to WWIII” (118 pages) attempts to cover the intricacies of the West’s methods of unconventional warfare and how they’ve manifested themselves over the last several years, finally miring Syria in a state of war. The book also looks at how the violence in Syria is just one part of a much larger geopolitical strategy, and where it may lead next.

Free e-Book: Source material on plight of Syrian Christians and refugee crisis

The war in Syria is growing increasingly worse every day, and it is affecting every Syrian citizen, regardless of ethnicity or religion. But just like in every war, the situation for minorites is even more horrifying. The Christian minority in Syria has no militia and is targeted by everyone. Christian Assyrians/Syriacs and others have become the number one targets for criminals and terrorists. Nuri Kino, journalist and author, has met and interviewed close to a hundred Christian Syrian refugees. He gives voice to this otherwise silent minority in a personal report.

Ziad, This report is indeed important and valuable specifically for the purpose of your post, which is to inform the masses of people who cannot believe that their government(s) would ever do such a thing. The successful outcome would be: 1. Citizens must understand that their governments have already supported terrorist groups while pretending to be their enemy 2. Alqaeda in Afghanistan was a CIA creation supported by Pakistani ISI and Saudi Arabia, among others 3. 9/11 was an inside job, and the common modus operandi is to stage a “drill” for training purposes, use it to dupe the very… Read more »

And that day it will be the people in London first and then Paris that will experience war.
It will NOT be the USA or Israel to be hit with the next nuclear weapon.
It will be London first.

Ziad,

I saved this page. A lot of reading but there goes there framework that Assad created ISIS by letting captives go out of prison. Of the little i did read and see (video) it is clear the US knew this was going to happen and actually supported it.

I do not know if you have posted this already but if not this is a nice contribution:

Either way, let’s hope it is seen by the right people who are in positions of influence.

Interesting thought that Kerry knew portions of this document would become public domain soon and went to Sochi May 12 for damage control purposes.

America’s treachery is facilitated by a fifth column in Iraq’s government. Heads should roll for this but probably won’t.
