NY Times says IS getting funds from USA
An interesting story from the Express Tribune with the NY Times from Jan. 28th:
IS operative confesses to getting funds via US
Yousaf al Salafi â€“ allegedly the Pakistan commander of Islamic State (IS) or Daish â€“ has confessed during investigations that he has been receiving funds through the United States.
â€œThe US has been condemning the IS activities but unfortunately has not been able to stop funding of these organisations, which is being routed through the US,â€ a source said.
â€œThe US had to dispel the impression that it is financing the group for its ow
n interests and that is why it launched offensive against the organisation in Iraq but not in Syria,â€ he added.
