Damascus, Syria – A damning new report by the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) and the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), published this week, exposes the Pentagon’s falsifying of documents – likely to hide the use of a shady network of private arms dealers, intimately connected to Eastern European organized crime groups, to transfer some $2.2 billion dollars worth of mostly old Soviet weaponry to al-Qaeda affiliates in Syria.

As part of the OCCRP/BIRN report, a map/infographic — its accuracy confirmed by Foreign Policy magazine — denotes that prior CIA weapons went directly to Idlib province (northwest, the section in green) and the Golan border region (south).

Note that both of these regions were, and continue to be, occupied by al-Qaeda (in Idlib, AQ’s Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham). While in Idlib province, analysts have confirmed ethnic cleansing of religious minorities conducted by al-Qaeda “rebels” directly assisted by arms procured from the now-shuttered covert CIA weapons program.

The two international weapons monitoring groups found conclusive evidence in the form of manipulated Department of Defense documents that revealed the Pentagon had scrubbed documents — such as end-user certificates — in an effort to hide the paper trail of U.S. government involvement with the nefarious groups.
