A shocking truth is unfolding: America has been arming ISIS…

The tweet, the only one on Drudge’s account since he wiped it clean some months ago, has been interpreted by some as a teaser for an upcoming revelation Drudge has received inside info on.
Some think it may be related to the ongoing saga with Centcom cooking intelligence on ISIS to make it appear that the Obama Administration has the terror group “contained”, as the President put it last week.
Drudge’s tweet may be a teaser for a big story, or simply a declaration based on what is already known about US weapons falling into ISIS hands.
As Infowars has tirelessly documented, US weapons have fallen into ISIS hands time and time again and bolstered the terror group via the insane policy of arming and training so called ‘moderate rebels’ in Libya, Syria and Iraq.
The CIA has shipped weapons to al-Qaeda affiliated groups in Syria since at least 2012, a fact reported by The New York Times.
Up until late 2014, the US still claimed it was arming “moderate” mercenaries in Syria to fight against ISIS and the al-Assad government in Damascus despite the fact there are no longer any moderate forces active.
Whether you believe this or not, it is clear that the terror group already have US weapons. It’s a policy that dates back decades, and has always ended in chaos and what the CIA has termed “blowback”.
Libertarian leaning Senator Rand Paul has repeatedly urged Americans to look to where ISIS is getting it’s weapons from to understand the monumental problem the US is facilitating in Syria and beyond.
Speaking with Ed Berliner of Newsmax recently, paul stated “Most of these people do not have the sophistication to make arms so they get the arms from other folks.”
“Right now ISIS has a billion dollars’ worth of U.S. Humvees, they have a billion dollars in cash they stole from us and they pay their soldiers with but they have anti-tank weapons and missiles they fire from the shoulder that were basically given to people in the Syrian civil war and taken by ISIS.”
“So really if we don’t want weapons to get into the hands of folks, we should be very careful about who we give the weapons to,” the Senator stated.
