The capture of a top ISIS commander has led to some shocking details specific to the United States. According to an unidentified source privy to the investigation, the Pakistan commander of the Islamic State, Yousaf al Salafi, has confessed to receiving funds from America.
Although news of his capture was only released on January 22, some, such as The Express Tribune, have since suggested that he was actually captured in December of last year. According to the unnamed source via the Urdu-language Daily Express, “During the investigations, Yousaf al Salafi revealed that he was getting funding – routed through America – to run the organization in Pakistan and recruit young people to fight in Syria.”
Al Salafi entered Pakistan through Turkey just five months ago, where he was intent on setting up an ISIS faction in the area. As explained by the source, US Secretary of State John Kerry learned of al Salafi’s confessions during his recent trip to Islamabad.
“The matter was also taken up with CENTCOM chief General Lloyd Austin during his visit to Islamabad earlier this month,” said the source.
“The US has been condemning the IS activities but unfortunately has not been able to stop funding of these organizations, which is being routed through the US,” the source went on to explain. “The US had to dispel the impression that it is financing the group for its own interests and that is why it launched offensive against the organization in Iraq but not in Syria.”
Benn Swann further notes that executive director of the Human Security Centre think-tank, Julie Lenarz, states that ISIS funding runs through the international banking system. The Daily Beast has also reported all allies to the US have been, in some way or another, tied to ISIS funding as well.
Undoubtedly, Obama will deny any knowledge or connection to this and claim he found out when he heard it on the news.
