A bombshell accusation was made against Obama this week that will make the American people lose even more trust in him.
According to Right Wing News, a pro-Putin member of Russia’s parliament has accused Obama’s White House of bombing the Syrian desert for a year instead of bombing ISIS targets. Alexei Pushkov, head of foreign affairs committee in the Russian Duma, lamented in a Twitter rant that American-trained “moderate rebels” had all run off to join terrorist organizations, meaning we have effectively been training ISIS.
“(Senator John) McCain accused us of striking out at US-trained insurgents… However, since they have either run away or joined al-Qaeda, hitting them is a mission impossible,” Pushkov tweeted.
Though his accusations are shocking, Pushkov may be on to something here. Figures compiled by the Council for Foreign Relations in a recent piece for Newsweek show that America’s intervention in the crisis in the Middle East is hardly even substantial.
Even when American soldiers do have ISIS in their sites, they often reportedly aren’t even allowed to open fire.
“There were times I had groups of ISIS fighters in my sights, but couldn’t get clearance to engage,” one F-18 pilot told reporters in May. “They probably killed innocent people and spread evil because of my inability to kill them. It was frustrating.”
Considering how much Obama has lied to Americans in the past, we sadly wouldn’t put this past him at all.
