There’s what the American people are told, then there’s the truth.
The truth is America funds terror groups in order to topple regimes to put in more favorable presidencies.
Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn’t.
The American government funded Al-Qaeda in Libya to overthrow Gaddafi.
The American government funded Ukranian rebel groups to take over the sale of natural gas to europe. (Thanks Victoria Nuland)
Hillary Clinton fought to keep Boko Haram off the terror list because we fund them AND Al-Shabab.
This is what the whole Iran Contra thing was about.
