ISIS’ Toyota Trucks Were Supplied by US State Department

http://www.hangthebankers.com/

The US Treasury has recently opened an inquiry about the so-called “Islamic State’s” (ISIS/ISIL) use of large numbers of brand-new Toyota trucks.

The issue has arisen in the wake of Russia’s air operations over Syria and growing global suspicion that the US itself has played a key role in arming, funding, and intentionally perpetuating the terrorist army across Syria and Iraq.

ABC News in their article, “US Officials Ask How ISIS Got So Many Toyota Trucks,” reports:

U.S. counter-terror officials have asked Toyota, the world’s second largest auto maker, to help them determine how ISIS has managed to acquire the large number of Toyota pick-up trucks and SUVs seen prominently in the terror group’s propaganda videos in Iraq, Syria and Libya, ABC News has learned.

Toyota says it does not know how ISIS obtained the vehicles and is “supporting” the inquiry led by the Terror Financing unit of the Treasury Department — part of a broad U.S. effort to prevent Western-made goods from ending up in the hands of the terror group.

“This is a question we’ve been asking our neighbors,” Faily said. “How could these brand new trucks… these four wheel drives, hundreds of them — where are they coming from?”

Not surprisingly, it appears the US Treasury is asking the wrong party. Instead of Toyota, the US Treasury’s inquiry should have started next door at the US State Department.

Mystery Solved

Just last year it was reported that the US State Department had been sending in fleets of specifically Toyota-brand trucks into Syria to whom they claimed was the “Free Syrian Army.”

US foundation-funded Public Radio International (PRI) reported in a 2014 article titled, “This one Toyota pickup truck is at the top of the shopping list for the Free Syrian Army — and the Taliban,” that:

Recently, when the US State Department resumed sending non-lethal aid to Syrian rebels, the delivery list included 43 Toyota trucks.

Hiluxes were on the Free Syrian Army’s wish list. Oubai Shahbander, a Washington-based advisor to the Syrian National Coalition, is a fan of the truck.

“Specific equipment like the Toyota Hiluxes are what we refer to as force enablers for the moderate opposition forces on the ground,” he adds. Shahbander says the US-supplied pickups will be delivering troops and supplies into battle. Some of the fleet will even become battlefield weapons.

The British government has also admittedly supplied a number of vehicles to terrorists fighting inside of Syria. The British Independent’s 2013 article titled, “Revealed: What the West has given Syria’s rebels,” reported that:

So far the UK has sent around £8m of “non-lethal” aid, according to official papers seen by The Independent, comprising five 4×4 vehicles with ballistic protection; 20 sets of body armour; four trucks (three 25 tonne, one 20 tonne); six 4×4 SUVs; five non-armoured pick-ups; one recovery vehicle; four fork-lifts; three advanced “resilience kits” for region hubs, designed to rescue people in emergencies; 130 solar powered batteries; around 400 radios; water purification and rubbish collection kits; laptops; VSATs (small satellite systems for data communications) and printers.

It’s fair to say that whatever pipeline the US State Department and the British government used to supply terrorists in Syria with these trucks was likely used to send additional vehicles before and after these reports were made public.

The mystery of how hundreds of identical, brand-new ISIS-owned Toyota trucks have made it into Syria is solved. Not only has the US and British government admitted in the past to supplying them, their military forces and intelligence agencies ply the borders of Turkey, Jordan, and even Iraq where these fleets of trucks must have surely passed on their way to Syria – even if other regional actors supplied them.

While previous admissions to supplying the vehicles implicates the West directly, that nothing resembling interdiction operations have been set up along any of these borders implicates the West as complicit with other parties also supplying vehicles to terrorists inside of Syria.

What Mystery?

Of course, much of this is not new information. So the question remains – why is the US Treasury just now carrying on with this transparent charade? Perhaps those in Washington believe that if the US government is the one asking this obvious question of how ISIS has managed to field such an impressive mechanized army in the middle of the Syrian desert, no one will suspect they had a role in it.

Of course, the trucks didn’t materialize in Syria. They originated outside of Syria and were brought in, and in great numbers, with the explicit knowledge and/or direct complicity of the US and its regional allies. Asking Toyota where the US State Department’s own trucks came from is another indication of just how lost US foreign policy, legitimacy, and credibility has become.

Russia’s intervention, and what should become a widely supported anti-terror coalition must keep in mind the criminality of the US and its partners when choosing its own partners in efforts to restore security and order across the Middle East and North Africa.

      18 USC 2331 Unequivocally defines the so called US moderate rebel army, as TERRORISTS!
      18 USC 2339B Unequivocally makes it a felony to aid terrorists!

      The US govt is giving aid and comfort to known terrorists in violation of US and international law!

      Well if the UK and USA can give guns and jeeps to so called “Moderate Rebels” and the UN says naff all about it then whats to stop China or Russia from giving weapons and military suport to people in places like Lonodon military help as they are going up against the state.

      We don’t want double standards do we no Mr UN Puppets.

      Isreal is saying that Muslims keep attacking the jews with knifes but somehow they keep managing to stop and kill them just at the last moment and the UN sits back and makes out that nothing wrong, all in a days work.

      The system is broken, bankers decide what happen in the UN so they will continue to break the law and get away with what ever they like.

      Strange that ISIS has never gone after Isreal if Muslims all hate the jews like we are told don’t you think

      What is the [TABUSE SYSTEM]? (TABUSE SYSTEM is famous in Japan.)

      ・All of wars are fake.
      ・All of religions are cabal tool.
      ・If I occupy the opponent ideas (or organizations), I can completely control all its matter.Therefore I should occupy all ideas and organizations with farce friction strategically.
      ・Only owning all central banks in the world and the right of controlling the gold price come to the world ruler.

      After Bush invaded Iraq illegally I thought to hell with this. I wasn’t going to support a bunch of dead children with my taxes so I just quit paying federal taxes. I was scared of getting audited the first couple of years but the IRS never came knocking. Then with their scandal, they had bigger fish to fry than me, so now I ain’t even worried. And it was a HUGE pay raise for me to the point I didn’t have to get a part time job. While you tax payers are buying hundreds of $40,000 Toyota trucks for terrorists. That was not MY tax money. I have a clean conscience now.

      God Bless Lois Learner!!!!!

      I did check this out on the actual site, the trucks are shipped in via Saudi Arabia and are part of their 300000 a year domestic imports, they must convert them to tacticals in Saudi, ISIS could be expected not to have the relevant support so they would have to import an equivalent ‘new’ vehicle each year to replace the one going off road due to mechanical failures. The double cab is only relevant if and only if they were supplied as imports in 2012 during the Funding of Al-Nusra and most likely shipped in via Jordan and the Golan the front grille being interchangeable with the Mid East version, the only difference being a diesel engine vs the more common petrol one(Hilux). The original Al-Nusra group would therefore have had CIA and Mossad supplied Toyotas with the hard to get at that time double cab and diesel engines, all the rest were supplied via Saudi Dealers from 2013 direct from their domestic imports and are militarized petrol civilian types. It is really easy to lose 4000 a year from the domestic stock due to ‘accidents’ and fake scrapping certificates.

    • DK

      As a second Note, the photograph of interest is the fourth one down showing the desert brown Hilux and its following unconverted version – these are US made Diesel, the article does not mention – but I will do so here, the Lamps are US shaped and the hoods have the Diesel air intake not on Saudi Versions which are petrol. The convoy on the right consists of Saudi petrol vehicles. These are possibly of those 6 the UK supplied, since Cameron would want the finger of blame pointing elsewhere.
