Proof that the U.S arms ISIS?

Iraqi Army Allegedly Downs A US Helicopter For Providing Weapons To ISIS: Report | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization

The Iraqi Army has once again claimed that it has downed a NATO aircraft that was providing military assistance directly to ISIS according to Iranian FARS News Agency.

This time, the Iraqis are claiming they shot down a US Helicopter in the Al-Bagdadi region in Anbar Province last week. The reason for shooting the helicopter, according to FARS and, apparently, high-ranking Iraqi officials, was that the helicopter was carrying weapons to ISIS.

Head of the Iraqi Parliament’s National Security and Defense Committee and senior Iraqi legislator, Hakem al-Zameli has stated that the Iraqi government is constantly receiving reports from its security forces that NATO aircraft is dropping weapons to ISIS.

Zameli claims that the reason for the airdrops is that NATO wishes to prolong the situation in Anbar Province for geopolitical purposes.

Zameli stated that “The Iraqi Parliament’s National Security and Defense Committee has access to the photos of both planes that are British and have crashed while they were carrying weapons for the ISIL.”

Indeed, the claims come only one week after a video was released purporting to show a US Chinook helicopter dropping at least two boxes of weapons to ISIS and flying a low altitudes unmolested over ISIS-controlled territory south of Fallujah. It is reported that the footage was filmed by Hezbollah Brigades based in Iraq.

In order to prove the fact that they did indeed down an American helicopter the FARS report claims that the Iraqi fighters posted a picture of the chopper and the weapons that were recovered from the wreckage.

The alleged downing of the US Helicopter comes on the heels of an alleged downing of two UK planes by Iraqi forces using the same reason (NATO dropping weapons to ISIS) as justification.
In this regard, Zameli stated that “The Iraqi Parliament’s National Security and Defense Committee has access to the photos of both planes that are British and have crashed while they were carrying weapons for the ISIL.”There are also reports that some US helicopters have landed in Fallujah, a stronghold of ISIS fighters in Iraq for the purpose of completing airdrops to al-Qaeda/ISIS.

The al-Ahad News website has quoted Khalaf Tarmouz, head of the al-Anbar Provincial Council as saying “We have discovered weapons made in the US, European countries and Israel from the areas liberated from ISIL’s control in Al-Baqdadi region.”

Tarmouz also claimed that weapons made in Israel and Europe were also discovered in Ramadi.

“The US drops weapons for the ISIL on the excuse of not knowing about the whereabouts of the ISIL positions and it is trying to distort the reality with its allegations,” he said.

These reports are by no means the first time that the United States, Europe, or Israel have been implicated in the arming and support of ISIS. It is, however, the first time Iraqi forces (since the initial US invasion of 2003) have mounted a direct resistance to US and NATO treachery.

Those are some serous accusations. Is there any proof of the US actually dropping weapons to ISIS? We need to see some data on that. What happened to the pilots of the downed air crafts? Shouldn't we get some statements from them?

It's not true, just Iraq trying to portrary ISIS as being supported by West to advance Iranian agenda in Syria/Iraq. Also because the Iranian led axis accuses other Arab states of cooperating with West but this Iranian axis askeed the US to intervene against ISIS in Iraq and its embarrassing them. Therefore they try propogating theory that ISIS is a US /Israeli supported group to fool the locals(Arabs) in order to get them to tolerate Iranian sectarian policies in region.

This would be crazy, since the ISIS have been killing western people from the USA and other places so don't see any reason for the USA to help them in any way. This must be a blame game, and Iraq may try to think it is happening but just shot down the helicopter without knowing what it is. I reckon that, more research needs to be done and also it is going to take time to find out what was going on and hope answers are given

I really hope this isn't true. But if it is, it wouldn't be the first time our government played both sides. I'm not going to speculate on any possible agenda. It rarely becomes known even in retrospect. But our government has always believed the ends justify the means. We just never hear what those ends are.
