Larry C. Johnson — Hillary Knew the Saudis Were Funding ISIS

I have written for quite some time that Saudi Arabia and Qatar are funding ISIS. Glad to see that John Podesta informed Hillary of this fact back in 2014. Here’s a portion of that email:
While this military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region. This effort will be enhanced by the stepped up commitment in the KRG. The Qataris and Saudis will be put in a position of balancing policy between their ongoing competition to dominate the Sunni world and the consequences of serious U.S. pressure. By the same token, the threat of similar, realistic U.S. operations will serve to assist moderate forces in Libya, Lebanon, and even Jordan, where insurgents are increasingly fascinated by the ISIL success in Iraq.
If you read the entire email you will discern that there is a recommendation to “put pressure” on Saudi Arabia and Qatar using diplomatic and intelligence channels. But nothing concrete is proposed. The solution to Saudi Arabia and Qatar is very simple–work with Russia and China and pass a UN Security Council resolution that imposes sanctions on any country that provides any kind of support to ISIS. Very simple.
Why does Hillary not want to do that? Also very simple. The Saudis and the Qataris have pumped millions of dollars into the Clinton Foundation. This is the ultimate pay for play.…

Tom, it won't have anything to do with the Clinton Foundation and all the other corruption the Clintons are involved in.

It's the kind of grand strategy we've witnessed for a long time, made more explicit since the dimwits who make this clear by openly writing it in Foreign Affairs and the like. It's a strategy for another American century: encircling the great rivals of this century, Russia and China; breaking up their economic, trading and military ties with other countries; restricting their access to energy; targeting them with economic and financial sanctions; etc. Liberals know how to do this kind of stuff: they've shown themselves to be competent managers of the empire, notwithstanding a few hiccups along the way, which is to be expected. The rise of the neoconservative dummies is complicating matters: everything they touch turns to shit, though through the distorted prism they view things from it all looks like gold.

The savvy Kremlin and the even savvier Chinese against American lobotomised neocons making the running? I know exactly who to put my money on.

I don't doubt that the crooked Clintons are getting a few backhanders, but the real issue is deep state politics, and a deep state that is in the hands of energetic numbskulls who think Iraq was a success!

Agree, John.

The rest is duping the rubes into thinking it is good a idea because exceptionalism.

At the same time, I think that many if not are tube with whatever as long as they are doing well themselves. Now that elite have turned to domestic colonization, that is changing.

Regarding the Clintons, there declared net worth is 111 M. HRC 31 M and Bill 80 M. And there are items they don't have to declare.

The Clinton Foundation is example of how the criminal cabal that rules the West operates. First the sets their future leader up in criminal situation of some sort and then they use their media to install them as our leaders. The Clintons didn't come up with all of this themselves. They were led into it and now that they are part of a crime syndicate they are placed in charge of the country. If they don't do as they are told they can be outed and discarded. The Clintons are just pawns in the game.
