When US-backed Syrian fighters took full control of the city of Raqqa, it ended three years of rule there by so-called Islamic State. But now the BBC has uncovered details of a secret deal that let several hundred IS fighters escape. IS made Raqqa in northern Syria its headquarters in early 2014. Last month Raqqa fell, but this programme has learnt that in exchange for a deal to save lives and bring peace to the city, a convoy carrying several hundred IS fighters, their families and weapons and ammunition — were able to leave the city freely. The question now is, where are they now? Our Middle East Correspondent, Quentin Sommerville, has this exclusive report.

Can I touch it says:

Trump did what he said he'd do, bomb the shit out of Isis. We hit Raqqa with 60,000 bombs and missiles in one month. This is more bombs and missiles than Obama dropped over several years on Isis. Trump ended their caliphate, in 30 days.

Where was the Russian military and Syrian military lmfao I don’t know

Veracity North says:

This makes no sense at all. There must be more to this story why they allowed them to leave. They have the capability to have taken them out. Regarding the foreign fighters all should have been killed and published there names and countries they are from. Whoever made this decision should be removed from power of authority. This is absolutely crazy.

TrollBuster GossipPunisher says:

Wtf! they allowed them to escape? So stupid! They should have killed all of them.

Xallion says:

So the US, the biggest state sponsor of terrorism, supports ISIS terrorists? They sell arms to the 2. biggest state sponsor of terror Saudi-Arabia. Why should we act surprised?

Syrian "democratic" party. What a joke

Yale and Harvard along with several other prestigious universities are owned by the British Crown. They were authorized by the King of England through Crown Colonies. Yale University was authorized by the English Monarch through the Connecticut Colony. The University of Harvard was authorized by the English Monarch through the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The Crown Colonies were issued from the City of London Corporation which is a sovereign municipal corporate state and one mile square block inside of London where royal and corporate charters are issued from. The Crown Colonies are companies owned by the British Monarchs and other royal families that do business inside of the City of London Corporation. The British royal family uses these universities to recruit their Crown Agents who then serve their interests by infiltrating corporate and government agencies. Many high level members in US military and intelligence come from Yale, Brown, or Harvard. Many powerful politicians were educated at these Crown Universities. They mostly use secret societies or fraternities for recruiting Crown Agents like Skull and Bones, Book and Snake, Porcellian Club, or Phoenix-S K Club. Porter Goss is a member of Book and Snake and was former Director of the CIA. Mark Zuckerberg has been linked with the Phoenix-SK Club. From CNN Anderson Cooper and David Gergen are members of Yale's Manuscript Club.

The British Crown also uses Crown Knights as agents who pledge their allegiance to the House of Windsor and in return are granted power and wealth. All heads of MI6 have been knighted by the House of Windsor. Former CIA Director and US President George Herbert Walker Bush was knighted under the Order of the Bath. Former US Secretary of State and National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger is a Knight of the British Empire. Henry Kissinger is a major developer of their depopulation agenda as the author of the National Security Study Memorandum a report on slowing population growth. Former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Alan Greenspan is a Knight of the British Empire. John Franklyn Mars was knighted by the House of Windsor's Order of the British Empire and he is worth about 26 billion. The wealthiest man on the planet Bill Gates is a Knight of the British Empire and worth about 89 billion. Bill Gates also openly promotes depopulation and uses his wealth to impose deadly vaccines all around the world. Rudy Giuliani is a Knight of the British Empire. Former Mayor of New York City Michael Bloomberg is a Knight of the British Empire and worth about 50 billion. General Wesley Clark is a Knight of the British Empire. Steven Spielberg is Knight of the British Empire and worth about 3.7 billion. Ronald Reagan was a Knight of the British Empire. Shimon Peres the former President and Prime Minister of Israel was a Knight of the  Order of St Michael and St. George. Knights and Court Factors serve royal courts. Buckingham Palace is a royal court.

Whoever participated in the making of this decision (to allow ISIS to withdraw) needs to publicly justify it. It would have been best to cluster bomb that convoy into oblivion – less innocent people would have ended up being hurt in the long run.
