Analysis

Heavily armed, well funded, and organized as a professional, standing army, the forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) swept southward into Iraq from Turkey and northeastern Syria, taking the cities of Mosul and Tikrit, and now threaten the Iraqi capital city of Baghdad itself. The United States was sure to prop up two unfounded narratives - the first being that US intelligence agencies, despite assets in Iraq and above it in the form of surveillance drones, failed to give warning of the invasion, and that ISIS is some sort of self-sustaining terror organization carving out a "state" by "robbing banks" and collecting "donations" on Twitter.
Two interesting articles by Lehmann. He claims ISI(S) was reactivated after Maliki chose to let the Army close the smuggling routes to Syria in late 2012, taking sides to the outrage of the Empire. An alleged "Hariri insider" in the second article gives more details about who runs the show, culminating in the paragraph:
Noting that a prominent member of Saudi Arabia’s royal family, Prince Abdul Rachman al-Faisal has been named as the one being “in command” of the ISIS brigades, and if he could either confirm or deny, he nodded, adding that “the Prince” is responsible for financing the operation and for part of the command structure, but that the operations headquarter is the U.S. Embassy in Ankara Turkey. “As far as I know, nothing moves without Ambassador Riccardione”, he added.
That would be Ricciardone, I guess. Gotta love Wikipedia for the following sub-headline (NPOV anyone?): "An AKP Supporter's Biased Account of 'Controversy' as U.S. Ambassador to Turkey" ;oP --CE (talk) 17:28, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
PYD leader Salih Muslim on the cooperation between Turkey and ISIS along the Syrian-Turkish border region. Still the same picture we know from Ras Al-Ayn only that they have completely taken over from the other "rebel" groups that were harassing Rojava last year. --CE (talk) 22:56, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
Main [Turkish] opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has claimed that the government sent trucks full of arms to Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants fighting the Syrian regime, stating that the CHP will soon share the details of the government's transfer of these arms through certain documents.
Makes the detailed case that Maliki has fallen from grace because he didn't do what he was told to do by the US.
The PKK has released the minutes of the 1 June 2014 meeting held in Amman to launch a joint attack by the ISIL and Iraq’s autonomous Kurdish government. According to Turkish newspaper Özgür Gündem, the meeting was allegedly prepared during Massoud Barzani’s visit to Amman, on May 27, later to be held under the auspices of the United States, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Israel and Turkey.
And is it a coincidence that Iraqi Parliamentary Speaker visited Turkey on June 2 on an unofficial tour and the Mosul surrendered to the ISIS on June 10 by the speaker’s brother Esil Nujayfe?
