Was Timber Sycamore The Program That Created ISIS?

Despite the repeated demonstrations of the fact that the United States and other Western nations have armed, supported, and funded terrorists in Syria from the beginning of the crisis in 2011 as well as long before that crisis had taken shape, official pronouncements admitting to funding those terrorists made by Western governments and reported by mainstream media outlets should not be dismissed simply because their actions are now common knowledge. After all, these incidents generally involve much more important revelations than those admitted to by corporate media.

For example, a sizeable portion of terrorist funding was openly admitted and continued by the United States even though the atrocities committed by the terrorists who were receiving the money was well documented throughout the alternative media as well as a number of mainstream outlets.

One such program was dubbed Operation Timber Sycamore, a “secret” plan authorized by then US President Obama which allowed the CIA to arm terrorists in Syria.

Timber Sycamore officially began in late 2012 or early 2013 and was similar to the other terrorist arming operations that the US had undertaken in places like Libya as well as a number of other countries in the previous decades. Obviously, this program was not the first of its kind.

Timber Sycamore was essentially a joint plan between Riyadh and the CIA, as well as Turkey and other Gulf States that would see the bulk of funding for the operation coming from Saudi Arabia while the majority of arming and training of terrorists would come from the United States. Jordan acted as the main location for training while Turkey and other Gulf States also played a major role in the program.
