CNN and others like The Hill are now covering weapons to Al Qaeda, as if this is news. Notably, this is limited to weapons in YEMEN, and ignores SYRIA. In this way, the problem is contained and even restricted to the Trump age.

Seymour Hersh reported in 2014:

A highly classified annex to the report, not made public, described a secret agreement reached in early 2012 between the Obama and Erdoğan administrations. It pertained to the rat line. By the terms of the agreement, funding came from Turkey, as well as Saudi Arabia and Qatar; the CIA, with the support of MI6, was responsible for getting arms from Gaddafi’s arsenals into Syria. A number of front companies were set up in Libya, some under the cover of Australian entities. Retired American soldiers, who didn’t always know who was really employing them, were hired to manage procurement and shipping. The operation was run by David Petraeus, the CIA director who would soon resign when it became known he was having an affair with his biographer. (A spokesperson for Petraeus denied the operation ever took place.)

 

This is one report of hundreds.

CNN isn’t interested in years of evidence and tons of captured weapons in Syria.
