Pentagon paying monthly stipends to Syrian rebels (aka ISIS)

The U.S. is quietly–and under a virtual media blackout–conducting a coup d’etat in Syria at enormous taxpayer expense: Pentagon paying monthly stipends to Syrian rebels (aka ISIS) to eventually fight Assad and invoke regime change | 24 June 2015 | The U.S. Department of Defense announced Monday it is making monthly payments to ‘moderate Syrian rebels’ being trained to fight foment the Islamic State. The United States, Turkey, Jordan, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia agreed in February to participate in the training and fielding of a moderate Syrian opposition force…”The trainees are currently receiving a stipend of between $250 and $400 per month, per soldier, depending on skill set, performance and leadership position,” Navy Cmdr. Elissa Smith, a Pentagon spokeswoman, told reporters. The Pentagon hopes to have 3,000 fighters trained by the end of the year and 5,400 trained after 12 months. The fighters are primarily to be used ‘against’ IS forces and are envisioned to eventually stand as viable opposition to the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, USA Today reports. [Yeah, let’s pay I-CIA-SIS to fight while we slash Medicare to fund the TPP – great idea!]
