Assange thinks THIS is the most significant email in the whole WikiLeaks collection, hear him explain why…
…As previously reported, in an August 17, 2014 email made public WikiLeaks last month, Hillary Clinton, who had served as secretary of state until the year before, urges John Podesta, then an advisor to Barack Obama, to “bring pressure” on Qatar and Saudi Arabia, “which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIS and other radical Sunni groups.”
“I think this is the most significant email in the whole collection,” Assange, whose whistleblowing site released three tranches of Clinton-related emails over the past year, told Pilger in the interview. “All serious analysts know, and even the US government has agreed, that some Saudi figures have been supporting ISIS and funding ISIS, but the dodge has always been that it is some “rogue” princes using their oil money to do whatever they like, but actually the government disapproves. But that email says that it is the government of Saudi Arabia, and the government of Qatar that have been funding ISIS.”[Assange and Pilger] also talked about the conflict of interest between Clinton’s official post, her husband’s nonprofit, and the Middle East officials, whose stated desire to fight terrorism may not have been sincere.
John Pilger: The Saudis, the Qataris, the Moroccans, the Bahrainis, particularly the first two, are giving all this money to the Clinton Foundation, while Hillary Clinton is secretary of state, and the State Department is approving massive arms sales, particularly Saudi Arabia.
Julian Assange: Under Hillary Clinton – and the Clinton emails reveal a significant discussion of it – the biggest-ever arms deal in the world was made with Saudi Arabia: more than $80 billion. During her tenure, the total arms exports from the US doubled in dollar value.
JP: Of course, the consequence of that is that this notorious jihadist group, called ISIL or ISIS, is created largely with money from people who are giving money to the Clinton Foundation?
Since Wahabbism finds its roots in Saudi Arabia, this shouldn’t surprise us. ClashDaily was pointing to Saudi as the root of a HUGE problem back in March.
It’s no secret that Saudi Arabia is a fountainhead for Wahabbism. In fact one expert says the rise of ISIS was the direct consequence of Wahabbi influence from Saudi Arabia. The article says that estimates for how much they have spent spreading their influence in the last three decades is into the hundreds of billions of dollars, perhaps higher.
Where are they getting this wealth? We buy their oil, and the mosques get a cut.
Rather than just complaining about a problem, we offered a solution so simple and elegant that even the most isolationist Libertarian could support it.
If we are going to take our battle with ISIS seriously… maybe we should look into where the problem is coming from?
That includes the threats in our own midst … including some now running for President… who ‘wished San Bernardino shooter was white‘.
