WASHINGTON – The former director of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency claims the Obama administration made a “willful decision” to allow ISIS to form in an attempt to unite Sunni Muslims against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, according to a report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

Retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael J. Flynn said the assertion that the rise of ISIS caught the administration by surprise isn’t true.

The White House made a conscious decision, he said, when it sponsored the radical jihadists who later became the Jabhad al-Nusra and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, to fight the Assad regime.

Flynn also said that he backed a 2012 Defense Intelligence Agency document that recently was obtained by Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act request.

The document had been classified Secret/Noforn (no foreign access) and was declassified with major redactions.

Nevertheless, it reveals Western support of Salafists in Eastern Syria, stating “this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime.”

“It was a willful decision to do what they’re doing,” Flynn said in a recent interview with Al Jazeera.
