John McCain meets with known kidnappers and sends them US arms and tax money in 2013.
I have established the fact that Kayla was kidnapped by the FSA, and they had the sole opportunity to kidnap her. It is a fact that Syrian civilians never had access to weapons. The only people who had weapons prior to spring 2011 were the police, army and security forces. However, once the Syrian revolution began, the weapons came pouring in from Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon. The FSA had access to the best weapons, all supplied by the United States of America, their payroll checks coming to them from the King of Saudi Arabia.
However, as much money as you give the typical FSA fighter, he just wants more and more. This is why the FSA have repeatedly kidnapped wealthy people and demanded ransom for their release. This has become a well documented side income for FSA. It has been proven that the FSA sold other western kidnap victims to ISIS. The motivation of the FSA in selling Kayla Mueller to ISIS had nothing to do with Radical Islam, or their hatred of USA, even though USA is their sponsor in Syria, it only was about money. Money makes the world go around, and FSA greed is what killed Kayla Mueller, among others.
