(ANTIMEDIAYousaf al Salafi, the professed Pakistani commander of ISIS was captured during a joint raid by law enforcement in December of last year, though Pakistani officials did not make the arrest public until January 22, 2015.

The Express Tribune first reported that al Salafi, who was arrested with two companions in Lahore, confessed that ISIS, also known as ISIL and IS, are receiving funds via the United States. It was not disclosed where in the US the funding is originating from.

Al-Salafi, along with an associate – who is reportedly an imam of a mosque – were receiving $600 for each new member of ISIS they were able to recruit. The recruits would then be sent to train at an undisclosed location in Syria.

An anonymous source speaking with the Tribune said that US Secretary of State John Kerry was made aware of the Pakistani commander’s admission during a recent visit to Islamabad. “The matter was also taken up with CENTCOM chief General Lloyd Austin during his visit to Islamabad earlier this month,” the source said.

Al-Salafi, who is a Pakistani-Syrian, entered Pakistan through Turkey. It was previously reported that he accessed Turkey via Syria earlier in 2014.

Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey have also been implicated as sources of funding for ISIS.

  7. "Could be" we all know he won't be and neither will any of the generals and neither will bush. Let's all grow up this story will never go nowhere I'll never find the source and ultimately we know that most major companies here in the US are funding those wars in order to sell their products to the United States. Its all big business and to think otherwise is just idiotic and ultimately naive. Let's all grow up.

  9. I think John Kerry is on another planet and would plead insanity and diminished responsibility. The misguided and ill-informed rubbish that comes out of his mouth he would probably get away with it.

  14. David Koresh said that he was receiving his orders from God. Did you believe him just because he said it? David Berkowitz said that his neighbors dog told him to kill people. Who bought that?

  15. Did you click on the links in the article and read them? Those are the sources.
    What "proof" do you need? Proof that will never come?
    Articles like this one need to be read and filed away until more evidence comes, then start adding it together.
    I think the photo of McCain meeting with ISIS is telling and related "Proof".

  16. Josh, if we're "conspiracy nuts" what are you? You're here reading this article too.
    Though I doubt you can understand what you're reading or how to click on links to find
    the evidence used in the article.
    Maybe you came to read an article that you knew in advance was unbelieveable?
    Hmmm….and we're "nuts"? I think you'd better look in the mirror to find a "nut".

  17. Turkey's Ardogan is supporting ISIS and receiving Iraqi oil for half price for it, Turkey is a NATO member. Big Oil are supporting the Kurds and the Iranian backed Shiites in the south, it is all mid day robbery because Iraq belongs to Sunni Iraqis they ruled it for 1200 years.

  22. Geezer you dolts. Receiving money from the U.S., not the U.S. government. Mosques and private parties (read Muslim organizations ). This story has been completely vetted and is ancient. As someone who worked for this country's intelligence service, there is no group that works more effectively at giving these folks field trials. Do your own research and don't be so easily swayed be hocus pocus writing. ..actually, satirical writing.
