- Hours before the battle to regain control of Mosul, thousands of ISIS yihadists managed to flee
- Critics are accusing the Obama administration of setting up an agreement with Saudia Arabia to let this happen
- This scandal is breaking at the same time a former top U.S. General goes on trial for giving classified information to a journalist
Bewilderment and outrage has been mounting since word has come out the U.S. government has permitted thousands of ISIS fighters to flee Mosul, in what has been described as an agreement with the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
What comes as a strange coincidence for some is the fact that this is happening at the same time a top military leader, General James Cartwright, is being forced to plead guilty in a U.S. Federal Court for disclosing classified information to two journalists. One of them is famed foreign policy reporter, David Sanger.
Cartwright, a four-star and very well respected Marine general, detailed Sanger with diverse Obama administration secrets. Sanger published a book in 2012 called Confront and Conceal: Obama's Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power, where he revealed for the first time covert information surrounding Obama and the diverse wars in the Middle East, in what many are now calling war crimes.
According to Sanger, the Obama administration retroactively classified everything General Cartwright said, and then file charges against him. Many of the revelations in the book are related to recent events unwinding at this moment in Syria and Iraq.
Reports indicate Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was securely led out of Mosul, one of the most important yihadist strongholds in the last two years, shortly before a U.S.-led attack started yesterday.
The Russian Ministry of Defense claims Obama’s strategy to let ISIS terrorists escape the battlefield makes “no logical military sense at all”. Some are linking this strange decision to Hillary Clinton’s well documented ties to the Saudi Arabian and Qatar regimes, which are known to be funding the yihadists.
The American military is calling the Mosul battle “Operation Inherent Resolve”, but some critics claim its true goal is a secret deal between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia to allow ISIS go to Syria and Russia. Nevertheless, Iranian-backed Shiite forces are apparently getting ready to defeat all ISIS fighters they encounter on their “planned and protected” U.S. escape.
Israeli intelligence officials are warning these Shiite militias loyal to Iran will be stationed to the west of Mosul, where they will block ISIS attempts to flee to their Syrian stronghold of Raqqa. This view goes in the same direction as what Donald Trump’s top military has been saying, that Iran will be the real winner in the whole Mosul battle.
