A message in the latest release of emails between Hillary Clinton and her campaign chairman John Podesta show the presidential candidate knew the governments of Saudi Arabia and Qatar provided financial support to ISIS terrorists.
“While this military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region,” Clinton wrote.
She then goes on to say that the US should be ready and willing to arm the FSA against the Syrian government, as well as put pressure on Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
“This effort will be enhanced by the stepped up commitment in the [Kurdish Regional Government]. The Qataris and Saudis will be put in a position of balancing policy between their ongoing competition to dominate the Sunni world and the consequences of serious U.S. pressure.”
