According to the corporate media, the US is leading the fight against ISIL, the un-Islamic terror group posing as “Islamic State.” Yet American leaders’ words and actions raise questions about their real goals.
In his speech last week Obama said: “I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL in Syria as well as Iraq.” But then on Monday night, senior administration officials suggested that the real target of US intervention in Syria would be the government of President Bashar al-Assad – ISIL’s number one enemy!
Saturday night’s Associated Press story headlined “US would hit back against Assad attack” begins:
“The United States would retaliate against Syrian President Bashar Assad’s air defenses if he were to go after American planes launching airstrikes in his country, senior Obama administration officials said Monday.”
