The Islamic State and John McCain
August 20, 2014
“The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.”
- Vladimir Lenin
SO, WHO NEGOTIATES WITH TERRORISTS? Militants from the terrorist group known as Islamic State (IS, ISIL, or ISIS) have reportedly beheaded James Wright Foley, an American journalist held captive in Syria since November 2012. Ibrahim al-Badri, the founder and so-called "Caliph of the Islamic State" met with Sen. John McCain in May 2013 although the U.S. government had him on a "Most Wanted" list with a $10 million reward for information leading to his capture. Why has John McCain not been prosecuted for meeting with terrorists? Al-Badri's group was holding Foley when McCain met the terrorist leader in 2013. James Foley's blood is on John McCain's hands.
Why has Sen. John McCain supported the gang of terrorists who behead innocent American journalists? Why is a leader from the U.S. Congress meeting with and supporting groups of mad-dog fanatics in the Middle East; the very same groups who we now find ourselves at war with? Why is the U.S. waging war against the militant and extremist groups in the Middle East that it helped create and arm in the first place? What kind of sick game is this?
The terrorist group known in the U.S. media as Islamic State (IS) uses atrocities, such as the beheading of the American journalist James W. Foley, to make headlines and get the attention of the world. Americans are likely to be very confused by the fact that U.S. Senator John McCain met with the leader of this bizarre and savage terrorist group in Syria in May 2013. Why would a U.S. Senator meet with a terrorist who is on the U.S. State Department's "Most Wanted" list - with a $10 million bounty on his head? What's going on?
To get a better understanding of why Sen. McCain, the leading supporter of Israel and the Zionist War Agenda in the U.S. Congress, has supported funding and arming the terrorist army known as Islamic State, I recommend reading:
"John McCain, Conductor of the 'Arab Spring' and the Caliph"

The following text contains extracts (indented paragraphs) from the Meyssan article:
John McCain in Syria. In the foreground at right is Mouaz Moustafa, director of the Syrian Emergency Task Force and "expert" at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a Zionist think-tank. In the doorway, center, is Mohammad Nour, an al-Qaida kidnapper of 11 pilgrims.
Another photo shows more of the black-shirted man behind John McCain, who is allegedly the terrorist leader of the Islamic State group.
Is this the face of Ibrahim al-Badri?
Ibrahim al-Badri (a.k.a. Abu Du'a) had a $10 million reward on his head by the U.S. State Department when Sen. John McCain reportedly met with him in May 2013.
Ibrahim al-Badri is the leader, the so-called Caliph of the Islamic State.
A profile view of the man said to be Ibrahim al-Badri meeting with John McCain in May 2013
In May 2013, Senator John McCain made his way illegally to near Idleb in Syria via Turkey to meet with leaders of the "armed opposition". His trip was not made public until his return to Washington.
This trip was organized by the Syrian Emergency Task Force, which, contrary to its title, is a Zionist organization led by a Palestinian employee of AIPAC.
In photographs released at that time, one noticed the presence of Mohammad Nour, a spokesman for the Northern Storm Brigade (of the Al-Nosra Front, that is to say, al-Qaeda in Syria), who kidnapped and held 11 Lebanese Shiite pilgrims in Azaz. Asked about his proximity to al-Qaeda kidnappers, the Senator claimed not to know Mohammad Nour, who may have snuck into the photo.
Sen. John McCain met with the heads of the "Free Syrian Army" in May 2013. In this photo McCain is seen speaking with the man (in dark shirt) said to be Ibrahim al-Badri, the founder and leader (i.e. "Caliph Ibrahim") of the Islamic State, the terrorist group that then held, and later executed, James Foley. As Meyssan points out in his article about John McCain, Ibrahim al-Badri, known under his nom de guerre as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, created the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) one month before this meeting. At the time of this meeting with John McCain, al-Badri had been on a U.S. government list of "Most Wanted" terrorists for 19 months, with a reward of $10 million to anyone who would assist in his capture. So, what's going on here?
If we can see Brigadier General Idriss Salem, head of the Free Syrian Army, one can also see Ibrahim al-Badri (foreground on the left) with whom the senator is talking. Back from the surprise trip, John McCain claimed that all those responsible for the Free Syrian Army were "moderates who can be trusted" (sic).
However, since October 4, 2011, Ibrahim al-Badri (also known as Abu Du’a) was on the list of the five terrorists most wanted by the United States (Rewards for Justice). A premium of up to $10 million was offered to anyone who would assist in his capture. The next day, October 5, 2011, Ibrahim al-Badri was included in the list of the Sanctions Committee of the UN as a member of Al Qaeda.
In addition, a month before receiving Senator McCain, Ibrahim al-Badri, known under his nom de guerre as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, created the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) – all the while still belonging to the staff of the very "moderate" Free Syrian Army…
In no country in the world, regardless of their political system, would one accept that the opposition leader be in direct contact, and publicly friendly, with a very dangerous wanted terrorist.
