Turkey-ISIS alliance uncovered
' “The oil trade between the jihadis and the Turks was held up as evidence of an alliance between the two,” The Guardian reported on Monday.'
So the US have raided ISIS, and we are told third hand that their intelligence services have found evidence that they were exporting oil through Turkey with the connivance of some Turkish officials. Compared to the evidence that Assad has not only been buying oil and gas from ISIS, but co-ordinating with them in attacks on Syrian rebels, this seems like a poor attempt to blame Turkey for what is going on in Syria, just as we got the story that Saudi Arabia and Qatar supported ISIS - with the proof that Joe Biden said it - last year, and the year before it was John McCain who supported ISIS, there were pictures to prove it.
