Such a move would have resulted in a confrontation with Russia, but the then US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, defied Obama and prevented such a war, according to Hersh.
Comment in to Press TV on Tuesday, Welch said, “Seymour Hersh has been dropping bombshell after bombshell for years… but certainly the main point that the US knew that they were arming and the CIA knew that they were arming ISIS [ISIL] and other groups is non-story, that part is a no-brainer, a case of the right hand knowing what the right hand is doing.”
“The other part about the upper echelons of the military actually defying him [Obama] and going behind his back is quite the bombshell, and that is an amazing story,” he added.
