Journalist Dr. Nafeez Ahmed Explains Media Blackout on DIA/ISIS Report

A newly declassified DIA report confirmed what Truth In Media
has been reporting for the last two years: the US and its allies contributed to the rise and success of ISIS.

Senator and Presidential candidate Rand Paul (R-KY) told Morning Joe that the Republican “war hawks” essentially helped create the rise of ISIS.

Perhaps more disturbing than the report was the complete media blackout of this important document.

Was there a notice that was sent out to the U.K. media that ordered them not to report on this section because of national security concerns?

Nafeez Ahmed is an award winning journalist who wrote about the DIA report last week and spoke to a major U.K. newspaper who was interested the DIA section, but delayed in reporting it.


Truth In Media’s Joshua Cook asked Dr. Ahmed in an exclusive interview why the media was ignoring the issue of the DIA report and its implications of aiding ISIS.

“I spoke to a major national newspaper here in the U.K. and what was interesting was they were quite sympathetic to the line of inquiry, but just felt like they couldn’t cover it. And it wasn’t that they were told they couldn’t cover it. The journalist that I spoke to who is a senior journalist that I have a lot of respect for was very sympathetic to what I was saying. He literally said to me look – I actually could sense that there was this fear that I shouldn’t be talking about this, this is going too far – is the document really strong enough? He didn’t feel confident,” said Ahmed.

“There is almost like an unspoken recognition I think in the mainstream media that there are certain things we are not allowed to say. The idea that something as despicable as ISIS could actually been foreseen or facilitated deliberately, which is really what is implied by this report quite clearly,” he said.

“It’s almost too much,” he said. “It goes against the grain of so much we take for granted. So many assumptions about not just American, but Western kind of supremacy and the benevolence of our government that we would never do anything like this … it’s a big kind of leap.”

“On the one hand I think that journalists are scared and worried about pushing boundaries to that extent. It does raise a concern that there is an absolute silence on this issue, especially in the English speaking media. It raises real questions about what is behind that silence?”
