Rumor: Obama Admin Okayed Raid on Abu Sayyaf in Syria To Take The Sting Out Of Ramadi Failure

Over the weekend, while the the Obama administration was patting itself on the back for the Delta Force raid on ISIS/Daesh Oil Financier Abu Sayyaf, ISIS was sacking Ramadi, seizing U.S. military equipment, including missile launchers and tanks – enough to  “take 3 more Mosuls and about 10 Ramadis,” according to one ISIS supporter.

Bill O’Reilly asked his guests, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (ret) and Col. David Hunt (Ret.) Monday night,  if they’ve heard the same rumor he’d heard that “the Obama administration knew that Ramadi was going to fall, knew it was an embarrassment, and then okayed this mission (as Col Hunt mentioned there were more than one hundred other requests that were not okayed – to take the sting out of the Ramadi situation.”

Peters said, “I’ve not heard that direct link, but I have heard the administration is doing everything it can to do damage control on the fall of Ramadi.”

(Yes, sadly, we have our own Baghdad Bobs now assigned to “damage control.”)

“Bill, the State Department has finally said that the fall of Ramadi was a set-back. It’s not a set-back. It’s a catastrophe! Ramadi is 75 miles from Baghdad! That’s Trenton to downtown Manhattan. It’s the capital of Anbar province – the key Sunni Arab province – it’s important because so many bled – died! – to take Ramadi!”

He continued to say that it was also a huge symbolic win for the Islamic State, and that “there are even some reports they got some of our M-1 tanks we gave the Iraqis.”

“Iraqi Special Forces, their elite operations – ran away, Peters added.”

Col. Hunt blasted the administration for its ineffective 9 month air campaign, “which was never going to work anyway” because the lack of troops on the ground coordinating with pilots.

Via PJ Media:

A coalition spokesman said Monday afternoon that the U.S.-led coalition  ”has conducted 19 air strikes in the vicinity of the Iraqi city of Ramadi over the past 72 hours.”

The strikes targeted Islamic State fighting positions, armoured and technical vehicles, and buildings they control.

Obama allegedly has a coalition of 60 nations fighting ISIS with us and they only managed 19 airstrikes in a three-day period.

During the Gulf War’s “Shock and Awe” campaign, the U.S. rained down 300 to 400 cruise missiles a day on Iraq for two consecutive days. At the beginning of the Iraq War, the U.S. unleashed 800 cruise missiles in two days.

Meanwhile, a massive convoy of ISIS fighters was able to parade out in the open desert in Western Anbar on Monday, completely unmolested.

The Regime says a “sandstorm” prevented them from acting, but pictures and video show an area completely clear of sand storms.

According to the ISIS Study Group,  “the public thinks Ramadi fell just the other day, but in all honesty IS had been in control of the city for the last six months.”

All this did was make it “official.” We’re aware of 50 ISF personnel who are currently trapped in the city with no way out – meaning they don’t have long on this Earth. The Obama administration may be downplaying the significance of this blow, but this is the biggest IA defeat since the fall of Mosul.

We’ve been warning about IS’ tightening chokehold on the province and how al-Asad Airbase is in danger of being overrun. As of this writing, the base is surrounded and isolated from any ground reinforcements with the Iraqi Army (IA) base in Taqaddum also vulnerable to a complex attack. A smaller IA presence at Camp Warar has been completely cut off and already experiencing probing attacks with the IS OP-tempo increasing in Fallujah and Karmah – which have forced some of the Shia proxy Popular Mobilization Committee (PMC) personnel to withdraw. After purging Ramadi of the remaining ISF presence, IS held a massive parade with a large concentration of fighters, armored vehicles and other confiscated equipment involved in the festivities as a show of force and to taunt the US government for being so weak. Not surprisingly, the Obama administration failed to capitalize on the large concentration of fighters in the area by not launching airstrikes on their positions. They claim a “sandstorm” prevented the US Air Force from launching airstrikes, which is interesting since the area seems pretty clear of sandstorms in the video footage that’s circulating the net.

  1. How in the world are our military leaders not in open revolt?

    Are they putting their damn pensions above their sworn oath to protect this country?

    MM, the Military has been completely neutered. There has been more than 250 senior and very senior Officers in key leadership positions shown the door and forced out. For the most part the remainder are the “yes people” who salute and ask how high to pile it {the boolchit, that is}.

    Now add the reduction of personnel that is taking place, where Non Commissioned Officers {NCO’s} are being thrown out or forced into retirement. There is a severe lack of leadership service wide. As they are being forced to retire, illegal aliens are being encouraged to join to replace them. The entire Military has been decimated, they are broken, morale is dismal, there is no initiative and soldiers cannot wait to get it all behind them.

    I am part of the “retired Military community”, it breaks my heart to see what’s happening. I’ve been warning about it for at least five years now. I survived the last time it happened and could see as plain as day, what was coming. It’s heartbreaking watching the news and receiving information from people I know of what is going on. Knowing the sacrifices and loses that have been made.

    The democrats have always been a treacherous, treasonous bunch, our problem now is the republicans are playing the supporting role and assisting them in the entire Country’s demise. They are refusing to hold the person/persons responsible for this intended mess responsible.

    It really is disgraceful and there is much to worry about with the situation.

    Observing the fast moving events in Iraq and Syria I cannot help but think that this is some sort of insidious “controlled demolition” unfolding in slow motion. Either the ineptitude of our own sitting president is now reaching unfathomable levels, or the US government has wanted this all along: the disintegration of all hope in Iraq and the Mideast. Americans like me, watching it all spin wildly out of control, after a decade of American blood and treasure WASTED, cannot help but wonder what the hell is going on behind the scenes that our government has allowed this to happen.
