An explosive claim was recently made during a CNN interview recently as the Sotloff family spokesman came to speak with Anderson Cooper. During that time, the spokesman, Barak Barfi, stated that Steven was not only captured by Obama-backed Syrian rebels, but was then sold to ISIS for a fee.
Amidst the questions, Barfi related to Cooper that, “For the first time, we can say Steven was sold at the border. Steven’s name was on a list that he had been responsible for the bombing of a hospital.” He eventually added, “This was false, activists spread his name around.”
Saying that they’d been informed by their, “sources on the ground,” he went on to say, “We believe that these so-called moderate rebels that people want our administration to support, one of them sold him probably for something between $25,000 and $50,000 to ISIS.”
According to family spokesman, “Somebody at the border crossing made a phone call to ISIS and they set up a fake checkpoint with many people and Steven and his people that he went in with could not escape.” Barfi then went on to share his outrage regarding the current administration saying they could have done more both for Sotloff and his family.
Saying that Sotloff’s family was put off to the point of neglect, he concluded, “We know that the intelligence community and the White House are enmeshed in a larger game of bureaucratic infighting and Jim and Steve are pawns in this game and that’s not fair and if there continues to be leaks the Sotloff family will have to speak out to set the record straight.”
Obama, despite an astounding public outcry, continues to fund and arm the likes of Syrian Muslim rebels – can what he’s doing be tied directly to the death of Steven Sotloff because of the recently disclosed accusations?
