This admission is going to disappear from the White House website next week, when the office passes to Donald Trump. Barack Obama admitted to supporting “extremists” in Syria, which are Al Qaeda, Al Nusrah, Al Sham, ISIS/ISIL.
This fits perfectly in line with his actions vis a vis Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, which were all exposed repeatedly for supporting the terrorists. No sanctions or punitive actions of any sort have been instituted against any of these sponsors of international terrorism. Far from it, the US and its Western allies have sent many billions of dollars of weapons to the perpetrators, not held them accountable. They are partners in crime.
