Gen. Vallely: US Working with Turkey, Muslim Brotherhood

By    |   Monday, 13 Oct 2014 11:49 AM

Retired Gen. Paul Vallely said on  Newsmax TV's "America's Forum" Monday that he has received information that the United States is working behind closed doors with Iran, Saudi Arabia and Turkey — the latter of which supports the Muslim Brotherhood — to allow the northern Syria town of Kobani to fall in an effort to lessen the influence of the Kurds in northern Syria and Kurdistan.

Turkey, he said, has named Gen. Belli, a Muslim Brotherhood defender, to be in charge of the Free Syrian Army, which are more moderate Syrian forces.

"So we have firmly Turkey backing the Muslim Brotherhood, but on the other hand you have countries like Saudi Arabia that have outlawed the Muslim Brotherhood, but we can see a whole change of events of which the United States is involved in behind the scenes," Vallely said.

"Again if this is so, then we have the White House supporting the Muslim Brotherhood as they did in Egypt. So with that we have a government that's culpable in working behind the scenes with a terrorist organization such as the MB or the Muslim Brotherhood."

The fluid situation in the Middle East has resulted in Turkey, via the Muslim Brotherhood, fostering and nurturing a Syrian government in exile, according to Vallely. Under the current set up, all supplies and resources have to go to Gen. Belli for the Free Syrian Army.

"Now it's clear that the White House and Turkey are working very closely with the Muslim Brotherhood that's why they're going to allow Kobani to fall and so that the influence of the Kurds in the north who have been basically at odds with the Turkish government for a very long time and so the Turkish government wants to see the Kurdish influence diminished, but you know on the other hand now, if you have the closeness of the battle occurring in Baghdad, why in fact would you allow ISIS to gain even further control and not mount some kind of very heavy attacks upon them?" Vallely asked. "So it's a very jumbled chess board over there."

Russia, Hezbollah, and Iran are supporting the Assad government in Syria while Turkey wants to see his regime fold.

"So it's a mixed bag of worms and of course we look like amateurs, the United States and the participation in all of this," he said.

The Obama administration's lack of a coherent strategy and failure to get a handle on what's happening has weakened America's position to the point that it may not be worth being there at all, Vallely suggested.

"It's getting to the point where as I've analyzed this thing I'm not sure we should put any forces on the ground over there anymore because we are so out of control ourselves with lack of a good policy and I don't want to see any of our forces in harm's way anymore," he said. "Maybe it's best let them all sort it out over there."

ISIS has already taken control of Mosul and Kirkuk and other areas of Iraq and American intervention has not slowed the terror group's progress "at all or to any great degree," he added.

"They're moving throughout Iraq and they're going to go all the way down to the Saudi border," he said.

"Next they're going to try to take the borders down of Jordan and so it's such a mixed bag over there right now with all these different Arab countries and they're not all on the same sheet of music so therefore with our weak strategy and lack of resolve we don't have that much credibility anymore so I'm not sure we just should not let them all fight it out over there, get it over with. It's their area, it's their land and I don't want to see any more of our troops put in harm's way. Unless we find that ISIS is a real threat to the United States in sending trained people here."
