Turkish-backed jihadists filmed using CIA-supplied missiles against Syrian Kurds
The Libertarian Institute's Scott Horton captioned the below video accurately when he bluntly stated:
CIA’s former(?) "moderate" jihadist terrorists blast DoD’s Kurdish YPG friends with U.S. TOW missile.
This is exactly what it shows. The CIA previously introduced BGM-71 TOW anti-tank missiles to the Syrian battlefield, handing the advanced weaponry off to the so-called 'moderate rebels' of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in order to accomplish regime change against Assad as part of operation 'Timber Sycamore' (which failed).
Critics of CIA efforts in Syria were quick to point out that such American hardware would inevitably go straight to the jihadists of ISIS and al-Qaeda. As even the mainstream media and pundits were forced to document, this is precisely what happened, given Washington ultimately sought to use Sunni jihadists to overthrow the Syrian government.
And now the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (TFSA), more commonly known as the Syrian National Army, is deploying the very same CIA-supplied TOW missiles against America's current proxy in Syria, the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), as part of Erdogan's 'Operation Peace Spring'.
"US Military May Be Targeted by Its Own Missiles in Middle East," warned Newsweek earlier this year. Well, yes...
This means American Green Berets and other special forces advisers still embedded with Kurdish SDF units around the oil fields in Deir Ezzor and Hasakah province could find themselves on the receiving end of US-supplied missiles, ironically enough.
Just another day in Washington's long-term covert war in Syria, and yet another example of what many of us years ago warned would happened, once again coming to exact fruition. And yet Washington is still addicted to its regime change wars in the Middle East.
