    WikiLeaks: Among the more intriguing revelations from the dump
    of Hillary Clinton's emails is her frightening admission that
    both Qatar and Saudi Arabia, often lauded as "moderates" in the
    Islamic world, are both helping to finance the Islamic State and
    other radical Islamic groups.

    In an August 17, 2014, email to her campaign chairman John
    Podesta, Hillary outlined a plan to beat ISIS in Iraq and Syria
    using U.S. "advisers," but no U.S. ground troops.

    Tucked into the email, however, was this: "While this
    military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to
    use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to
    bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia,
    which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support
    to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region."

    Excuse us? Our supposed Mideast allies are funding our terrorist
    foes the very ones now sending deep-cover terrorists into the
    West, hidden among the human flood of hundreds of thousands of
    Mideast and North African Muslim refugees?

    Without comment, the Daily Caller puts this into bigger
    perspective: "Qatar has given between $1 million and $5 million
    to the Clinton Foundation and Saudi Arabia has donated upward of
    $25 million to the Foundation."

    So the Clinton Foundation knew that both Qatar and Saudi Arabia
    were financing terrorists, but took their money anyway. Just to
    be clear, this may also have had a major impact on U.S. policy
    while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.

    In 2010, Assistant Secretary of State Andrew Shapiro called the
    sale of $60 billion in F-15 fighter jets, helicopters and other
    lethal equipment to the Saudis a "top priority" for Hillary
    Clinton personally. A year later, the jet part of the deal was
    consummated at a price tag of $29 billion.

    Hillary's advocacy on behalf of the Saudis did not go
    unrewarded. "As weapons transfers were being approved, both the
    Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Boeing made donations to the Clinton
    Foundation," wrote Lee Fang, at the website The Intercept.

    Meanwhile, International Business Times, in an analysis of State
    Department and Clinton Foundation data from 2010 to 2012, found
    that "the State Department approved $165 billion worth of
    commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments have given
    money to the Clinton Foundation." That was nearly twice the
    amount of arms sales for the same nations approved under Bush.

    "In all, governments and corporations involved in the arms deals
    approved by Clinton's State Department have delivered between
    $54 million and $141 million to the Clinton Foundation as well
    as hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments to the Clinton
    family," the IBT analysis concluded.

    We wrote about this apparent corruption earlier this year, with
    the Clintons taking as much as $130 million from their friends
    in a handful of authoritarian nations in the Mideast. The most
    recent details only confirm that the willingness of Hillary
    Clinton to put the State Department's power and prestige up for
    sale to enrich her own family foundation knew no bounds.
    Apparently, that even extends to lining their pockets with money
    from those who support terrorism.
