TEHRAN (FNA) A movie displayed by an Arab news website showed that a long convoy of the ISIL terrorists’ military vehicles was going on a Highway towards battlefronts with the aerial back up of a US military Apache helicopter.

The UAE-based al-Sa’a displayed a video clip of over 200 Toyota vans carrying the flag and members of the ISIL terrorist group driving on one of the main highways of Syria while an Apache chopper of US military was accompanying them in a friendly manner.

The Arab media reported that the ISIL convoy did not open fire at the US chopper, which was flying in a very low altitude.

Early in October, former CIA counter terrorism officer and Senate Foreign Relations Committee senior investigator John Kiriakou said the US congress armed the ISIL terrorists by providing weapons to the “moderate” opposition.

The FSA is an armed Syrian opposition faction, considered “moderate” by the western countries, fighting the Syrian army loyal to President Bashar Assad since the beginning of the war in 2011. In 2014, the US Congress allocated $500 million to create FSA force of more than 5,000 men by the end of 2015.

“They (the FSA) didn’t help at all: supporting them only made matters worse. Most of the US arms that were sent to them only found their way into the hands of the Islamic State (of Iraq and the Levant). Congress paid for the arming (of) the Islamic State (of Iraq and the Levant),” Kiriakou said.

According to him, ISIL forces in Syria had been able to capture and use modern US equipment from the FSA just as their counterparts in Iraq enjoyed the use of huge quantities of US equipment they had captured from fleeing US-trained Iraqi forces.

The US idea of “a liberal, democratic freedom-loving, peace-loving opposition”, an alternative to Syrian President Assad, was just nonsense, Kiriakou said. The US should have stayed out instead of making the situation worse, he added.
