In an exclusive broadcast by RT on Saturday, courtesy of Dartmouth Films, Julian Assange is interviewed and accuses Hillary Clinton of misleading Americans about the true scope of support for ISIS by Washington’s Middle East allies such as Saudi Arabia.
In a 2014 email made public by Assange’s WikiLeaks last month, Hillary Clinton, who had served as secretary of state until the year before, urges John Podesta to “bring pressure” on Qatar and Saudi Arabia,“which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL (ISIS) and other radical Sunni groups.”
Assange: Clinton & ISIS Funded By Same Money
John Pilger: The Saudis, the Qataris, the Moroccans, the Bahrainis, particularly the first two, are giving all this money to the Clinton Foundation, while Hillary Clinton is secretary of state, and the State Department is approving massive arms sales, particularly Saudi Arabia.
Julian Assange: Under Hillary Clinton – and the Clinton emails reveal a significant discussion of it – the biggest-ever arms deal in the world was made with Saudi Arabia: more than $80 billion. During her tenure, the total arms exports from the US doubled in dollar value.
John Pilger: Of course, the consequence of that is that this notorious jihadist group, called ISIL or ISIS, is created largely with money from people who are giving money to the Clinton Foundation?
Julian Assange: Yes.
John Pilger: That’s extraordinary.
When asked about the United States election, Assange said:
“My analysis is that Trump would not be permitted to win. Why do I say that? Because he has had every establishment off his side. Trump does not have one establishment, maybe with the exception of the Evangelicals, if you can call them an establishment,” said Assange. “Banks, intelligence, arms companies, foreign money, etc. are all united behind Hillary Clinton. And the media as well. Media owners, and the journalists themselves.”
But again the question is, why don’t her supporters seem to care?
