- Brad Hoff, Managing Editor of Levant Report and a former Marine, discusses the newly-released DIA documents showing that, as far back as 2012, the US government foresaw the Islamic State as an asset to be used to weaken the Syrian government.
- DIA Gives an Official Response to LevantReport.com Article Alleging the West Backed ‘Islamic State’

On Friday, May 22, I contacted the DIA Public Affairs office seeking official response to my May 19 article entitled, 2012 Defense Intelligence Agency document: West will facilitate rise of Islamic State “in order to isolate the Syrian regime”. DIA Public Affairs did not respond at that time.
YESTERDAY (5/26), THE DIA CONTACTED ME via email and requested that I submit my questions. Today, May 27, DIA Public Affairs spokesman James M. Kudla contacted me via telephone at 1:37pm (Eastern Standard Time) and agreed to give an official DIA comment to my questions concerning the declassified 2012 DIA intelligence report released through Freedom of Information Act request to Judicial Watch (14-L-0552/DIA/287-293).
