In November 2015, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D‐HI) in the House Armed Services Committee led bipartisan bill H.R. 4108 to stop the abuse of American taxpayer money in the CIA’s illegal arming and funding of al‐Qaeda affiliates in Syria.
Unfortunately, it was blocked, but after the recent deaths of three special forces assigned to train jihadists in Jordan, perhaps it is time to revisit a similar bill and stop this madness.
… Saleena Saleem from S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) in Singapore likewise warned that the spread of Wahhabism is injecting sectarianism among Southeast Asian Muslims who had hitherto coexisted peacefully, threatening their pluralistic societies and exacerbating societal polarization. This is especially the case in Malaysia and Indonesia where ISIS and Al Qaeda have taken a stronghold.
