Salafis Throwing Bombs: How American and British Planners Partnered With Al-Qaeda Affiliated Groups At the Start of the Syrian Civil War

2011 syria protests.svg

Introduction In the mainstream view, al-Qaeda did not play a role in the Syria conflict until Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi dispatched his deputy, Abu Muhammad al-Jolani, to Syria in August 2011 to establish a wing of the group there, called Jabhat al-Nusra, or the Nusra Front. Additionally, al-Qaeda allegedly did not carry out any military operations until December 2011 and did not announce its establishment until January 2012. However, there is evidence that al-Qaeda affiliated militants were involved in the Syrian conflict much earlier. Saudi intelligence...

New Russiagate Whistleblower Exposes Stefan Halper’s Role in Firing Mike Flynn

On FPF #530, Will Porter returns to the show to discuss the new Russiagate Whistleblower Steven P. Schrage. Schrage is a former student of Stefan Halper and set up the event was Halper first met Carter Page. The Page/Halper meeting is suspected of helping generate the bogus Steele Dossier information that led to a FISA warrant on Carter Page and surveillance of the Trump campaign. Schrage has recorded audio of Halper showing he knew Mike Flynn would be fired as NSA just days before it happened.  Links The Spies Whi Hijacked the world  Dangerous Game by Will and...

Flynn-Kislyak Call Transcript Released

As we already knew, the bad part is him trying to get Russia to veto the UNSC Israel-Palestine resolution. The part about the sanctions and avoiding "tough guy" "tit-for-tat" escalation of tensions over Obama's sanctions was perfectly fine if not heroic.

Trump Doubles Down on Ineffective Sanctions

On FPF #498. I discuss Trump's foreign policy strategy of using sanctions to deal with any international issue. Trump has sanctioned several countries, including Russia, China, Iraq, Lebanon, Zimbabwe, and Myanmar. For others - North Korea, Venezuela, and Iran - he has not limited the sanctions to individuals or industries, but rather imposes an economic war on the entire population of the country. Trump's sanctions have actually harmed the president's foreign policy, as the sanctions interfere with his ability to engage the countries diplomatically.  Links Kevin R. Brock on the FBI and...

Russiagate: Judge Takes Rare Step in Flynn’s Trial guest Will Porter

Will Porter returns to Foreign Policy Focus to explain a rare move the judge made in Mike Flynn's case. The Justice Department has recommended that charges be dropped against Flynn. However, the judge has now appointed a 'third party' to come argue the case against Fylnn. The 'third party' is not unbiased and has already written an oped arguing Flynn should continue to face criminal charges. Will breaks down what this means and how it fits into the Russiagate conspiracy theory. 

FPF #294 – Russiagate & Syria

On FPF #294, I discuss new updates in the Russiagate conspiracy theory and Syria. New information reveals Gen Flynn's trip to Russia in 2015 was in accordance with US intelligence. A court document shows an associate of John McCain gave he Steele Dossier to BuzzFeed in 2016. Bolton claims the US withdraws in Syria is conditioned on protection for the Kurds and the defeat of ISIS. The Assad government is now talking with the Syrian Kurds. The US and Russian military are also engaged in talks.  Links Mark Perry - Syria withdraw Elijah Magnier - Syria...

FPF #211 – Russiagate: The Indictments guests Joanne Leon & Dan Wright

On FPF #211, Joanne Leon and Dan Wright join the show for the first in a three-part series covering the many claims that Russia colluded with the Trump campaign to win the 2016 election. In part one, Joanne and Dan break down the indictments of Flynn, Manafort/Gates, Papadopoulos, and Internet Research Agency. They explain how every indictment is unrelated to the 2016 claims of Russiagate and in some cases work to disprove the Russia collusion claims. We also discuss the Trump Tower meeting and the role of Fusion GPS's Steele dossier.  Joanne Leon and Dan Wright are the cohosts of the...
