On Wednesday Tulsi Gabbard returned from a trip to Syria, which she described as a “fact-finding” mission and did not previously make public. Gabbard ‘s press office stated that she met with Syria’s President Assad to discuss strategies to bring an end to the brutal civil war that has claimed the lives of over 400,000 people.
During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper upon her return to the states Gabbard said the Syrian people were very happy to see her, but were not happy about the Obama administration funding and arming terror groups operating in Syria, who are trying to topple the government in order to take over the country for themselves.
Tapper started referencing tweets that were critical of Gabbard for meeting with President Assad, while also claiming that he’s responsible for the deaths of thousands and even gassing his own people, trying to to make it appear as if she should never have met with such a leader to begin with.
That’s where Tapper and CNN get a dose of truth that always makes them extremely uncomfortable, as they never stray too far from the established Obama/Democrat endorsed narrative.
Gabbard starts out by saying, “I’ll tell you what I heard from the Syrian people, that I met with walking down the streets in Aleppo, in Damascus.”
“They expressed happiness and joy at seeing an American walking their streets, but they expressed the question, why is it that the United States, its allies and other countries, are providing support, are providing arms, to terrorist groups like Al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda, ISIS, who are on the ground there, raping, kidnapping, torturing, and killing the Syrian people? Children, men, women and people of all ages.”
Gabbard continues, making sure that her point was getting across clearly and that the voices of the Syrian people would be heard.
“They asked me why is the United States supporting these terrorist groups who are destroying Syria – when it was Al-Qaeda who attacked the United States on 9/11, not Syria. I didn’t have an answer for that.“
