- ‘WikiLeaks Of Covert Arms’: Investigation Reveals UK Shell Companies Served As US Weapons ‘Rat Line’ Into Syria
by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
Starting in 2017 we featured a series of reports on the work of investigative journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva, who after authoring a bombshell report for Sofia-based Trud Newspaper, was interrogated by Bulgarian authorities and fired from her job as a correspondent for the outlet.
She had uncovered a massive covert weapons shipment network to terror groups in Syria via diplomatic flights originating in the Caucuses and Eastern Europe under the watch of the CIA and other intelligence agencies based on uncovering leaked emails, flight logs, and weapons purchasing receipts.
As Forbes reported at the time, the issue of Western sourced weapons and state funds covertly diverted to ISIS as part of efforts to back “rebels” fighting Assad in Syria was briefly taken up by the Council of Europe, based in part on Gaytandzhieva’s own fearless investigations and being fired for the original report.
