President Obama is continuing air strikes against ISIS/ISIL in Syria and Iraq to stop the terrorist group from killing Arabs, but U.S. General Martin Dempsey, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, recently admitted that America's Arab allies are funding ISIS.
During an U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee meeting on Tuesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) asked General Dempsey about getting an Arab coalition together with the U.S. to fight ISIS.
“It really comes down to building a coalition, so that what the Arab Muslim world see is them rejecting ISIS, not us,” claimed General Dempsey
“They already reject ISIL,” Sen. Graham stated. “Do you know any major Arab ally that embraces ISIL?”
“I know major Arab allies who fund them,” replied General Dempsey.
Sen. Graham ignored the shocking admission and wanted a specific answer about "embracing" ISIS.
“Yeah, but do they embrace them?” asked Sen. Graham. “They fund them because the Free Syrian Army couldn’t fight Assad. They were trying to beat Assad. I think they realized the folly of their ways.”
However, Sen. Graham has been wrong about the Middle East numerous times. On Sunday, he warned that ISIS was going to come to the U.S. and kill "all" Americans unless President Obama sent U.S. troops on the ground to Iraq and Syria.
"If there are threats to the United States, then I, of course, would go back to the president and make a recommendation that may include the use of U.S. military ground forces," stated General Dempsey.
General Dempsey added that if U.S. troops “should accompany Iraq troops on attacks against specific ISIL targets, I'll recommend that to the president.”
