JERUSALEM – Members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, were trained in 2012 by U.S. instructors working at a secret base in Jordan, according to informed Jordanian officials.
The officials said dozens of ISIS members were trained at the time as part of covert aid to the insurgents targeting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria. The officials said the training was not meant to be used for any future campaign in Iraq.

The Jordanian officials said all ISIS members who received U.S. training to fight in Syria were first vetted for any links to extremist groups like al-Qaida.

In February 2012, WND was first to report the U.S., Turkey and Jordan were running a training base for the Syrian rebels in the Jordanian town of Safawi in the country’s northern desert region.

That report has since been corroborated by numerous other media accounts.

Last March, the German weekly Der Spiegel reported Americans were training Syrian rebels in Jordan.

Quoting what it said were training participants and organizers, Der Spiegel reported it was not clear whether the Americans worked for private firms or were with the U.S. Army, but the magazine said some organizers wore uniforms. The training in Jordan reportedly focused on use of anti-tank weaponry.

The German magazine reported some 200 men received the training over the previous three months amid U.S. plans to train a total of 1,200 members of the Free Syrian Army in two camps in the south and the east of Jordan.

Britain’s Guardian newspaper also reported last March that U.S. trainers were aiding Syrian rebels in Jordan along with British and French instructors.

Reuters reported a spokesman for the U.S. Defense Department declined immediate comment on the German magazine’s report. The French foreign ministry and Britain’s foreign and defense ministries also would not comment to Reuters.

The Jordanian officials spoke to WND amid concern the sectarian violence in Iraq will spill over into their own country as well as into Syria.

ISIS previously posted a video on YouTube threatening to move on Jordan and “slaughter” King Abdullah, whom they view as an enemy of Islam.

  1. The question to be answered is: Is what is happening in Iraq a matter of blow-back, or was it expected, or even planned? – Shorty Dawkins, Associate Editor

    This is what happens when you stick your nose where it don’t belong…this blow-back in your face was most definitely expected and planned. The enemy from within is rolling in bed with the enemy from outside. They think they have all the answers and their predetermined moves in check, but sorely mistaken on a great many things.

  2. I believe it was planned by those traitors within our nation, or at the very least, known of by them.

  3. civilian contractors in our uniforms employed by Security force companies U.S. and international ones did go into both countries. My units personnel witnessed it and had been forced to sign paper work stating so or be forced out of the military with a full lose of benefits with in two weeks of refusal to sign this paper work. I was at another area so never had any paper work forced on me but heard from these unit members who did not like the fact this as forced on them. I see no reason such a specific rumor would be told….

  4. I think Washington is in-fact surprised, but only surprised to discover a well trained ISIS, not called (anymore) as “terrorists” but now called by FoxNews as “militants” have recruited a wide range of foreign fighters and some know how to fly helicopters, etc. Washington doesn’t know what side to support anymore….therefore, it should get very interesting ! OR….the West is waiting for ISIS to gain a lot of real-estate, then they get nuked?
