The top officer of the U.S. Army, who’s leaving his post in the coming weeks, said during his exit interview the Middle East tensions and tragedies due to ISIS could very well have been stopped if the United States had only been more engaged.
Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno has served 39 years in the military – including more time in Iraq than any other general in the U.S. Army – and served as a key player in the surge of the country. Just weeks from retirement, he’s speaking up about the White House’s actions against terrorism – and what he’s saying isn’t complimentary.
“It’s frustrating to watch it,” Odierno said, of the rise of ISIS in Iraq and Syria, Fox News reported. “I go back to the work we did in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 and we got it to a place that was really good. Violence was low, the economy was growing, politics looked like it was heading in the right direction.”
He then said the fall of certain spots in Iraq was hardly inevitable, and that America could have done a lot to stop that from happening.
“If we had stayed a little more engaged, I think maybe it might have been prevented,” Odierno said, to Fox News. “I’ve always believed the United States played the role of honest broker between all the groups and when we pulled ourselves out, we lost that role.”
Odierno had actually recommended the stay of up to 35,000 U.S. troops in 2011, at a time when President Obama was ordering them home.
“I think it would have been good for us to stay,” he said.
He also said, speaking of what he called the unnecessary and dangerous cuts in the military: “Two years ago, we didn’t think we had a problem in Europe. … Now Russia is reasserting themselves. We didn’t think we’d have a problem again in Iraq and ISIS has emerged. So, with Russia becoming more of a threat, with ISIS becoming more of a threat, in my mind, we are on a dangerous balancing act right now with capability. When we go to [450,000 troops] we are going to have to stop doing something.”
The group known as ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant), ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) or Islamic State is, originally, an offshoot of Al-Qaeda in Iraq, it is the richest terrorist organisation in history. If there was no Operation Mass Appeal, if America hadn’t illegally religiously invaded Iraq, if there was no American prison created after the invasion in Iraq, there would be no Islamic State. 17 of the 25 most important Islamic State leaders running the war in Iraq and Syria spent time in US prisons between 2004 & 2011 where allegedly ISIS started (Piven, 2014; Alexander & Beach, 2014; Chulov, 2014).
ISIS, a group who appeared almost over night, just so happens to be so powerful that 42 nations and at least a dozen more rebel and terror factions are unable to defeat them. Reportedly ISIS has a $2 billion and, growing war chest.

CIA & The Mainstream Media
“Well I, I’ve been a journalist for about twenty-five years and I was educated to lie to betray and the not to tell the truth to the public. But seeing right now within the last months how, how far, how the German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia, this is a point of no return and, I stand, I am going to stand up and say, um, it is not right what I have done in the past. To manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia and, it is not right what my colleagues do and, have done in the past because they are bribed to betray the people, not only in Germany all over Europe“.
“The reason writing this book was that I, I am very fearful of a new war in Europe and, I don’t like to have this situation again because war is not never coming from itself, there is always people behind it to push for war and, this is not only politicians this is Journalists to“.
“And I just have written in the book how we have betrayed in the past our, our readers just to push for war and, because I don’t want this anymore, I’m fed up with this propaganda. We live in a banana republic and not in a democratic country, where we have press freedom, where we have human rights, when we. If you see the German media especially my colleagues who day by day write against the Russians who are in transatlantic organizations and, who are supported by the United States to do so. People like me I got, I became honorary citizen of the state of Oklahoma in the United States, just why? Just because I wrote pro-American, I wrote pro-American. I was supported by the Central Intelligence Agency, by the CIA, why? Because I should be pro-American, I, I’m fed up with it, I don’t want to do it anymore and so I, I’ve just written a book not to earn money, now it will cause a lot of trouble for me just to, to give the people in this country, Germany, in Europe and, all over the world, just to give them a glimpse of a view what goes up behind the closed doors“.
“Yes, there is many examples for that, we, if we go by just back to history, if you go into the year in 1988, if you go to your archives you will find in March 1988 that there was a, a, in Iraq, in a sub, in Iraq the Kurdish people have been gassed with poisoned gas, that is known all over the world. But in July 1988 they sent me to a town called Zubaydat, that is on the Iraqi/Iranian border. There was, it was war between the Iranians and the Iraqis and, I was sent there to photograph how the Iranians have been gassed with poisoned gas, with German poisoned gas, you call it LOST and Sarin, mustard gas made by Germany, they have been gassed and, I was there to make photographs how these people have been killed by poison gas made from Germany. When I came back to Germany there was just one small photo in a newspaper, in the Frankfurter Allgemeine and, there was one small article, not writing how impressive brutally, how inhuman, how terrible it was to kill half, to kill decades after the end of the second world war people with German poisoned gas“.
“So this was a situation, I feel misused, for, for, for having been there and just to give a documentary what has been done, but not been allowed to cry out to the world what we have done behind closed doors. Up to today it’s not well known in the public that it was German public gas, there have been hundreds of thousands of people gassed in this city of Zubaydat“.
“Now you ask, what have I done for intelligence agencies? So please see, most of the journalists you’ll see in foreign countries they claim to be journalists and, they might be journalists, European or American journalists, but, many of them like me in the past are so-called non official cover, that’s what the Americans call that. I have been a non-official cover, non-official cover means what? It means you to work for an intelligence agency, you help them if they want you to help them. But, they will never, never, when ah, when you, when you are, when you are locked, or when they find, when they find out that you are not only a journalist but a spy to, they will never say ‘oh this was one of our guys’, they will not know you, that means non-official cover. So I have helped them in several situations and, the, I feel ashamed for that too now. Like I feel ashamed that I have worked for very recommended newspaper like the Frankfurter Allgemeine because I was bribed by billionaires, I was bribed by the Americans not to report exactly the truth. But I just imagined in my car while I was driving to this interview I just tried to work out in my brain what would have happened if I would have written a pro Russian article in the Frankfurter Allgemeine. Well I don’t know what would have happened but we were all educated to write pro-European, pro-American, but please not pro-Russian. So I am very sorry for that, but this is not what I understand for democracy and, for press freedom, I’m very sorry of for that“.
“Well Germany, yes I understand your question very well, Germany is still a kind of a colony of the United States, you’ll see that in many points. Like the majority of the Germans don’t want to have nukes in our country, but we still have American nukes, so we are still it kind of a colony of the Americans. And being a colony it is very easy to approach young journalists through what is very important here is transatlantic organizations, all journalists from really respected and recommended big German newspapers, magazines, radio stations, TV stations, they are all members or guests of those big transatlantic organizations. And in these transatlantic organizations you are approached to be pro-American and, there is nobody coming to you and, say ‘well we are the central intelligence agency, would you like to work for us’. No, this is not the case how it happens, what they do these transatlantic organizations is ah, they invite you, they invite you for seeing the United States, they pay for that, they pay all your expenses and everything. So you are bribed, you get more and more corrupt because they make a good contacts. You won’t know that those good contacts are lets say non-official, non-official covers or officially people working for Central Intelligence Agency or other American agencies. So you make friends, you think they are friends and, you cooperate with them, they try, they ask you ‘well could you do me this favor, could you do me that favor’ and, so your brain is more and more brainwashed through these guys. And your question was is this only the case with German journalists, no I think it is especially the case with British journalists because they have a much closer relationship, it is especially the case I with israelis, ofcourse with French journalists, for a part, not that big as with German or with British journalist. It is the case for Australian journalists, for journalists from New Zealand, from Taiwan, from well, there is, there is many countries. Countries in the Arab world like Jordan for example, like Oman, the Sultanate of Oman, there is many countries where this happens, where you, where you find people to the, to claim they are respected journalists, but if you look behind them you’ll find the, they are puppets on a string of the Central Intelligence Agency“.
“I’m sorry for interrupting you, I’ll give you one example, sometimes the intelligence agencies they come to your office and, want you to write an article. I’ll give you an example, not from strange other journalists, from me myself, I’ve just forgotten the year, I just remember that the German foreign intelligence, Bundesnachrichtendienst, it is just the on a sister organization of the Central Intelligence Agency, it was founded by the American intelligence agency. So one day the BND, this German foreign intelligence agency came to my office at the Frankfurter Allgemeine at Frankfurt and, they wanted me to write an article about Libya and about Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. I had absolutely no secret informations regarding Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and Libya, but they gave me all the, these secret informations and the, they just wanted me to write, to, to sign the article was my name. I did that but, it was an article that was published in the Frankfurter Allgemeine that originally came from the Bundesnachrichtendienst, from the German foreign intelligence agency. So do you really think that this is journalism, intelligence agencies writing articles“.
“Oh yes, that article I, I have reprinted it partly in my book, that article was how Libya and, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, how he secretly tried to build a poison gas factory, I think in Rabta was the name, yes. And I got all those information, it was a story that was printed worldwide two days later, but it I had no information on that, it was the intelligence agencies that wanted me to write this article. But this is not the way journalism should work that intelligence agencies, that they decide what is printed and what not“.
“If I say no I give you an example from, a very good example if you say no. Well we have a, a rescue unit in Germany with helicopters for traffic accidents, it’s called, they call themselves the Yellow Angels. There was one guy who, who didn’t want to cooperate, he was a pilot of the helicopter service of the Yellow Angels in Germany, this guy said no to the foreign intelligence service Bundesnachrichtendienst when they approached him and wanted him as a non-official cover to work for are the German Foreign Intelligence Agency and, just to pretend to be somebody from the, the Yellow Angels. So what, what, what happened was that he lost his job and, the cop in Germany they, the judge decided that they were right because the, such a guy could not be trusted. He was kicked off his job because he didn’t cooperate with the foreign intelligence service, so I knew what would happen if I would not cooperate with intelligence services“.
“Well, well I have had, let me see, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 times my house was house searched because I was accused by the public prosecutor, the German public prosecutor, I was accused of leaking state secrets, leaking secrets of states. Six times house searched, well they, they hoped that I wouldn’t do that ever again, but I think it’s worth that the truth will come out one day, the truth won’t die. And I don’t mind what will happen, I’ve had three heart attacks, I have no children, so if they wanna bring me to court or to prison, so it’s worth for the truth“.
1980-90s – Taliban/Al Qaeda & The Soviet Union
British MP George Galloway in 2012 said “Al-Qaeda and their forefathers and the Taliban are all inventions of the US and Britain… Al-Qaeda were only ever in Afghanistan because we helped to send them there. We armed them, financed them, called them heroes and freedom fighters [against the Soviet Union in the 1980’s]“. “Not only did we create these people in the first place but we have reached for them as a weapon of choice to deploy against our enemies“, he added. Mr Galloway accused the British government of training an Al-Qaeda terrorist in Fort William in Scotland. He said there are “international terrorists inside Afghanistan because Britain and America sent them there in the 1980’s to fight the [Soviet Union’s] Red Army on the principle that my enemy’s enemy is my friend“. “But of course they are not in Afghanistan any more. They’re in Syria where Britain and America have sent them next. The very people who murdered the American ambassador in Benghazi were the people that we sent into Libya and bombed Libya so that they could come to power there” (PressTV, 2012).
According to Hillary Clinton Al-Qaeda was created and, funded by the United States to defeat the Russians, she is recorded as saying;
“we also have a history of kind of moving in and out of Pakistan. I mean lets remember here, the people we are fighting today, we funded, twenty years ago. And we did it because we were locked in this struggle with the Soviet Union, they invaded Afghanistan and, we did not want to see them control central Asia and, we went to work and, it was President Reagan in partnership with the congress led by Democrats, who said, ‘you know what, sounds like a pretty good idea, lets deal with the ISI and the Pakistani military, and lets go recruit these Mujahideen and, let’s great, lets get some to come from Saudi Arabia and, other places. Importing their Wahhabi brand of Islam so that we can go beat the Soviet Union’. And guess what, they retreated, they lost billions of dollars and, it led to the collapse of the Soviet Union. So there’s a very strong argument which is, it wasn’t a bad investment to end the Soviet Union, but lets be careful what we sow because we will harvest. So we then left Pakistan, we said ‘ok fine, you deal with the stingers that we’ve left all over your country, you deal with the mines that are along the border and, by the way, we don’t want to have anything to do with you, in fact we are sanctioning you’. So we stopped dealing with the Pakistani military and, with ISI and, we are now dealing with a lot of lost time“.
According to award-winning geopolitical analyst and strategic risk consultant William Engdahl, the Central intelligence Agency transported hundreds of Saudi Mujahideen and, other foreign veterans of the 1980s Afghanistan war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan into Chechnya to disrupt the struggling Russia in the early 1990s, particularly to sabotage the Russian oil pipeline running directly from Baku on the Caspian Sea into Russia (Engdahl, 2014).
2001 – 911
As to not re-invent the wheel, Wikipedia although extremely biased and, weirdly cult like on certain subjects, gives a good enough peer reviewed US government narrative of the Twin Towers attacks;
“The September 11 attacks (also referred to as September 11, September 11th, or 9/11)[nb 1] were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda on the United States in New York City, New York, Arlington County, Virginia, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001“.
The 911 event is highly controversial, most people I have spoken to regard 911 as a open secret conspiracy.
Journalist Liz Glazier for The Slippery Rocket University Online Newspaper wrote an article where she quoted 2,977 people who lost there lives on 911, she wrote;
“On Sept. 11, the College Republicans hosted a memorial service in the quad to honor of all the lives lost during the terrorist attacks seven years ago. There were 2,977 American flags placed in the ground to honor each person who lost their lives in the attacks” (Glazier, 2008).
The total number of genocide fatalities of the Iraq war varies depending on source, estimates between 151,000 to over one million Iraqis died as a result of US & UK religious invasion of Iraq. After American troops fired banned depleted uranium shells into civilian areas a sharp increase in cancer and birth defects appeared in Iraqi children commonly known as the Falluja babies. A large number of victims also reported physical and, psychological torture as well as sexual abuse by American troops.
American and British troops who committed such atrocities if ever brought before an international court for crimes of genocide and crimes against humanity will more than likely echo Nazi soldiers who murdered Jews during the holocaust, “I was only following orders“.
According to retired General Wesley Clark “After 911 I went through the Pentagon and, I saw secretary Rumsfeld and, deputy secretary Wolfowitz. I went down stairs just to say hello to some of the people on the joint staff who used to work for me and, one of the generals called me in and said “sir you’ve got to come in and talk to me a second”, I said ‘well you’re too busy’, he said ‘no, no’, he says ‘we’ve made the decision, we’re going to war with Iraq’, this was on or about the 20th of September. I said ‘we’re going to war with Iraq, why?’, he said ‘I don’t know’, he said ‘I guess they don’t know what else to do’, so I said ‘well did they find some information connecting Saddam to Al Qaeda?’, he said ‘no, no’, he says ‘there’s nothing new that way, they’ve just made the decision to go to war with Iraq’. He said “I guess it’s like we don’t know what to do about terrorists but we got a good military and, we can take down governments’ and, he said ‘I guess if the only tool we have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail’. So I came back to see him a few weeks later and, by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan and, I said ‘are we still going to war with Iraq?’ and, he said ‘oh it’s worse than that’, he said, he reached over on his desk he picked up a piece of paper and, he said ‘I’ve just’, he said ‘I’ve just got this down from upstairs’, meaning the secretary of defences office today and, he said ‘this is a memo that describes how we are going to take out 7 countries in 5 years, starting with Iraq and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off Iran’“.
Operation Mass Appeal
Operation Mass Appeal was an operation set up by the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) in the runup to the 2003 invasion of Iraq. It was a campaign aimed at planting stories in the media about Iraq‘s alleged weapons of mass destruction. The existence of the operation was exposed in December 2003, although officials denied that the operation was deliberately disseminating misinformation. The MI6 operation secretly incorporated the United Nations Special Commission investigating Iraq’s alleged stockpiles of “Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD’s)” into its propaganda efforts by recruiting UN weapons inspector and former MI6 collaborator Scott Ritter to provide copies of UN documents and reports on their findings to MI6.
The former UN arms inspector, Scott Ritter, revealed in his book, Iraq Confidential, the existence of an MI6-run psychological warfare effort, known as Operation Mass Appeal. According to Ritter: “Mass Appeal served as a focal point for passing MI6 intelligence on Iraq to the media, both in the UK and around the world. The goal was to help shape public opinion about Iraq and the threat posed by WMD.” MI6 propaganda specialists, at the time, claimed they could spread the misinformation through “editors and writers who work with us from time to time”.
Ritter, in an interview with Amy Goodman of the US news website Democracy Now!, described how he, as an arms inspector for the United Nations Special Commission on Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction – and UNSCOM itself – became deeply involved in MI6’s “Operation Mass Appeal”:
“I ran intelligence operations for the United Nations in regards to the disarmament of Iraq. That was my job. Part of this job in 1997 and 1998 took on a propaganda aspect, given the fact that we had launched a series of controversial and confrontational inspections in Iraq, which although successful from a disarmament standpoint in exposing aspects of the Iraqi account which were not accurate, were causing problems for the United Nations in the Security Council […] We made a decision. We, being Richard Butler, the Executive Chairman who ran UNSCOM, and his senior staff members, of which I was one, that we needed to clean up our public image, and we did a number of things […] [In December of 1997] I was approached by the British intelligence service, which I had, again, a long relationship with, of an official nature, to see if there was any information in the archives of UNSCOM that could be handed to the British, so that they could in turn work it over, determine its veracity, and then seek to plant it in media outlets around the world, in an effort to try to shape the public opinion of those countries, and then indirectly, through, for instance, a report showing up in the Polish press, shape public opinion in Great Britain and the United States.
“I went to Richard Butler with the request from the British. He said that he supported this, and we initiated a cooperation that was very short-lived. The first reports were passed to the British sometime in February of 1998. There was a detailed planning meeting in June of 1998, and I resigned in August of 1998. […] This is an operation — Operation Mass Appeal, that had been going on prior to UNSCOM being asked to be the source of particular data, and it’s an operation that continued after my resignation.”
2003 – Iraq War
As to not re-invent the wheel, Wikipedia although extremely biased and, weirdly cult like on certain subjects, gives a good enough peer reviewed brief western overview of the basics of the alleged rational for the Iraq war;
The Bush administration “began actively pressing for military intervention in Iraq in late 2001. The primary rationalization for the Iraq War was articulated by a joint resolution of the U.S. Congress known as the Iraq Resolution“.
“The U.S. stated that the intent was to remove “a regime that developed and used weapons of mass destruction, that harbored and supported terrorists, committed outrageous human rights abuses, and defied the just demands of the United Nations and the world.” Additional reasons have been suggested: “to change the Middle East so as to deny support for militant Islam by pressuring or transforming the nations and transnational systems that support it.” For the invasion of Iraq the rationale was “the United States relied on the authority of UN Security Council Resolutions 678 and 687 to use all necessary means to compel Iraq to comply with its international obligations”.“.
“In the lead-up to the invasion, the U.S. and UK emphasized the argument that Saddam Hussein was developing “weapons of mass destruction” and that he thus presented a threat to his neighbors, to the U.S., and to the world community. The U.S. stated “on November 8, 2002, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 1441. All fifteen members of the Security Council agreed to give Iraq a final opportunity to comply with its obligations and disarm or face the serious consequences of failing to disarm. The resolution strengthened the mandate of the UN Monitoring and Verification Commission (UNMOVIC) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), giving them authority to go anywhere, at any time and talk to anyone in order to verify Iraq’s disarmament.” Throughout late 2001, 2002, and early 2003, the Bush Administration worked to build a case for invading Iraq, culminating in then Secretary of State Colin Powell’s February 2003 address to the Security Council. Shortly after the invasion, the Central Intelligence Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, and other intelligence agencies largely discredited evidence related to Iraqi weapons as well as links to Al-Qaeda, and at this point the Bush and Blair Administrations began to shift to secondary rationales for the war, such as the Hussein government’s human rights record and promoting democracy in Iraq. Opinion polls showed that people of nearly all countries opposed a war without UN mandate and that the view of the United States as a danger to world peace had significantly increased. UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan described the war as illegal, saying in a September 2004 interview that it was “not in conformity with the Security Council.”“.
In a book published in 2003, retired General Wesley Clark said the US is pursuing a campaign of wars in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, Iran (PressTV, 2015).
Iraqi analyst Sami Ramadani in 2014 was quoted as saying “You have to go back to the invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003. Neither Syria nor Iraq had any terrorist organizations before that date, and within a year of that occupation the Iraqi doors were flung open for terrorist organizations and terrorist acts, and gradually through 2005 the US and some Gulf rulers started even funding some of these extremist organizations. Once the Syria crisis started in 2011 openly the US, and Britain started funding and arming these groups. You can even go back to Afghanistan where Bin Laden’s Al-Qaeda were trained and funded by the CIA to fight the Soviet forces there, and then Bin Laden forces became so strong that they started threatening the US interests. These terrorists organizations were created, used, abused by the Western powers, including Britain, so they can use the same organizations to reinvade the area, reoccupy it; they had a design to create a massive military base in Iraqi Kurdistan. That will obviously threaten Iran in the future and any government in Baghdad that might wish to have policies different from those of the US. So we have talked about strategic interests, the UN report referred to oil, but this entire region is extremely sensitive, and the US and NATO are using the barbarity, savagery and threat of the ISIS to strengthen their presence” (Ramadani, 2014).
2004 to 2011 – IS/ISI/ISIL/ISIS Creation
As mentioned earlier, the group known as ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant), ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) or Islamic State is, originally, an offshoot of Al-Qaeda in Iraq.
After the 2003 religious invasion, sold as a war of liberation, of Iraq, American prison’s were created to house any known or suspected captured enemy combatants who resisted American occupation. 17 of the 25 most important Islamic State leaders running the war in Iraq and Syria spent time in US prisons between 2004 & 2011, where reportedly ISIS started (Piven, 2014; Alexander & Beach, 2014; Chulov, 2014).
In short, Abu Ahmed was an essential member of the earliest incarnation of ISIS, he was one of many Iraqi husbands, fathers, and sons – some of them non-combatants, rounded up and sent to one of multiple prison complexes housing some 24,000 men, divided into 24 camps in Iraq, Camp Bucca, a prison that housed the entire Al-Qaeda leadership (Chulov, 2014).
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was born in the city of Samarra in Iraqi, 1971, as Ibrahim ibn Awwad al-Badri al-Samarrai. Detained in Falluja west of Baghdad, in February of 2004 by US forces, months after he had helped found Jeish Ahl al-Sunnah al-Jamaah, a militant group, which had taken root around his home city in the Sunni communities. The small militant group Baghdadi was in charge of was one of many that sprouted from a broad Sunni revolt, many would soon join together under the flag of Al-Qaeda in Iraq and, then, the Islamic State of Iraq (Chulov, 2014).
In 2004, Ahmed met one of the leading creators of the Islamic State, al-Baghdadi, at Camp Bucca. Al-Baghdadi frequently described as the world’s most dangerous terrorist leader, he was the emir of Isis, he spent time at Camp Bucca. People were forced together from all over Iraq because of American predatory aggression which led to people being forced to network together to defend their home country from an invading force.
Once Abu Ahmed left prison he got together with people he had met while incarcerated and continued working on any plans they had made (Chulov, 2014). It was this chain of events that led to the creation of ISIS.
Retired General Wesley Clark, was the Supreme Allied Commander Europe of NATO from 1997 to 2000, he said about ISIS while using the acronym for ISIL, “ISIS got started through funding from our friends and allies“. Clark went on to comment how the terrorist group is part of a strategy to destroy Hezbollah using an army of extremists.
Iran’s former minister of intelligence, Heydar Moslehi, says that Mossad, MI6 and, CIA created ISIL, while Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir agreed. He was quoted as saying to Euronews that America’s CIA and, Israel’s Mossad are behind Boko Haram and ISIL (Bishara, 2015).
According to journalist Arthur Topham “The US and Israel have been involved in the whole creation of the ISIS/ISIL myth… trying to lay the blame on the Muslim nations“, “As far as I can see, it’s another false flag attempt to build up more Islamophobic hatred towards all the Arab states in the Middle East” (PressTV, 2015).
ISIL were initially trained by the CIA in Jordan in 2012 to destabilize the Syrian government (PressTV, 2015).
According to award-winning geopolitical analyst and strategic risk consultant William Engdahl, key members of ISIS were trained by American CIA and Special Forces command at a secret camp in Jordan in 2012. American, Turkish and, Jordanian intelligence were running a training base for the Syrian rebels in the Jordanian town of Safawi in the country’s northern desert region, conveniently near the borders to both Syria and Iraq.
Political commentator Walt Peretto told Press TV, ISIL “is a creation of the West. When I say the West, I am referring primarily to the United States, the United Kingdom, the EU, NATO, Israel, and Saudi Arabia“. “The two main goals of ISIS (ISIL) is to replace al-Qaeda as a threat to the Western interests after al-Qaeda was exposed as another Western creation“, “The other main role of ISIS is to be an excuse to bomb Syria“.
Political commentator Rodney Shakespeare says the UK, along with the United States and Israel want the ISIL to exist, as the terrorist group’s existence is part of their strategy to smash independence in the Middle East. He also said that the United Kingdom, the United States and, their regional allies are complicit for creating ISIL Takfiri militants both in Iraq and Syria (PressTV, 2015).
In 2014, a senior aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Alexander Prokhanov, accused Mossad of training ISIL fighters operating in Iraq and Syria (GPD, 2015).
United States Senator Rand Paul was recorded as saying “we’ve been funding people who are allied with ISIS, ISIS is stronger because we’ve been funding Islamic rebels in Syria“.
“ISIL appears to be a fabrication of Sen. John McCain, which is sponsored by the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia” Professor James Henry Fetzer said (PressTV, 2015).
According to award-winning geopolitical analyst and strategic risk consultant William Engdahl, the financial backing for ISIS jihadists reportedly also comes from three of the closest American allies in the Sunni world, Kuwait, Qatar and, Saudi Arabia.
United States Senator John McCain was recorded as saying “everyone in the national security team recommended arming ISIS“.
ISIS Jihadists are using tanks, howitzers and, armoured personnel carriers seized from Iraqi arms depots, many originally provided by the United States (Alexander & Beach, 2014; Engdahl, 2014).
Retired United States Air Force Lt. General Tom McInerney had the following to say about ISIS “Syria, we backed I believe in some cases some of the wrong people, and not in the right part of the Free Syrian Army, that’s a little confusing to people. So, I’ve always maintained and, go back quite some time, we were backing the wrong types. I think it’s going to turn out maybe this weekend in a news special that Bret Baiers gonna have Friday, it’s going to show that some of those weapons from Benghazi ended up in the hands of ISIS. So we helped build ISIS, now there’s a danger there“.
“ISIL is advised by two American generals and is receiving air-drops of food, weapons and ammunition from C-130 cargo plane“, Professor James Henry Fetzer said (PressTV, 2015).
In 2015, in an outlying area in Iraq’s province of Nineveh, Tal Abta desert near Mosul city, Iraqi counter terrorism forces arrested 4 foreign advisors, 3 of them from the US and, Israel, employed as military advisors to ISIL fighters. They were captured in a headquarters responsible for the control of ISIL operations. Iraq’s Sama News Agency reported, three of the arrested advisors have American and, Israeli passports (Tasnim, 2015; Yapching, 2015).
Iranian MP Seyed Fathollah Hosseini said “The United Nations should not remain silent over the presence of American military commanders in the terrorists’ headquarters“. Iranian MP, Mohammad Saleh Jokar, accused America of deliberately assisting ISIS and, having alterior motives in leading a coalition against the Islamic State. Jokar went on, the arrest of American advisors made it clear for the world public opinion that the ISIL is a product of the US and Washington backs it (Tasnim, 2015).
Alexander Prokhanov said Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad, is likely to have transferred spying knowledge to ISIL leadership, he went on to say Israeli military advisors could be assisting the Takfiri terrorists. He said, “They launched their first terror attack against us just a few days back in Chechnya“, stressing ISIL’s ideology has nothing to do with Islam practiced in Iran and, some other Muslim countries in the Middle East. According to Prokhanov, America and, Israel are one and the same when it comes to supporting terror organizations like ISIL (GPD, 2015).
IS/ISI/ISIL/ISIS Belief System
According to the RAND corporation, ISIS reportedly believe in the Salafi jihadism or Jihadist-Salafism international religious and political ideology which is said to be based on a belief in violent jihad and the Salafist religious movement of returning to what ISIS members call “true” Islam (Jones, 2014; Moghadam, 2014).
Reportedly scholar Gilles Kepel coined the terms “Salafist jihadists” and “Jihadist-Salafism” in 2002, to describe “a hybrid Islamist ideology“, said to have been developed by international Islamist volunteers in the American created, trained, advised, supplied and, funded Afghan anti-Soviet jihad (Kramer, 2003; Livesey, 2005).
The Salafi movement is often described as being a hybrid of Wahhabism, a branch of Sunni Islam, although Salafists consider the term used by Hillary Clinton “Wahhabi” disrespectful (Lacroix, 2008).
For more than two centuries, Wahhabism has been Saudi Arabia’s dominant faith (PBS, 2015).
In an interview on CNN with Graeme Wood by Anderson Cooper, Cooper asked Wood “when you say it is a death cult, it’s solely geared towards the end times, general apocalyptic verifications?“. Wood replied “well the Apocalypse is a very important frequently occurring element of their rhetoric, so they believe this is going to happen. And they also believe, by the way, that before they finally achieve victory when Jesus comes back and, comes to their aid, that they will actually almost be diminished to nothing. They believe that there will only be 5000 of their fighters left and, then Jesus comes and, saves the day for them“. Cooper then asked “they believe Jesus will save the day for them?“, to which Wood replied “yes, at Jerusalem, that Jesus will come to Earth at Damascus and, then go to their aid when they’re encircled by the forces of an anti-messiah type figure in Jerusalem and, then Jesus will come to their aid and save them“.
According to Phoebe Greenwood the assistant foreign editor for the Guardian “Isis the Islamic State of Iraq & Syria is driven by a single aim. As its name suggests the creation of an Islamic state in Sunni territories across Syria and Iraq. In Syria three years of civil war has allowed them to claim hundreds of square miles of territory from the Iraqi border to the Mediterranean coast. Now they’ve swept over the border into Northern Iraq several hundred of its number easily overran the countries second largest city Mosul” (Greenwood, 2014).
Mosul (North Mesopotamian Arabic el-Mōṣul) is a city in northern Iraq and the capital of the Nineveh Province 250 miles northwest of Baghdad.
Greenwood also said “Tens of thousands of Iraqi soldiers and police men simply dropped their weapons and ran. Their forces have moved quickly towards the capitol Baghdad amassing cities, recruits and resources on their way. ISIS now controls a chunk of territory in Syria and Iraq larger than a lot of countries. So what do ISIS have in mind for their future Caliphate? They tried to let us know a while ago, back in 2007 when they were just the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) they issued a pamphlet, “modern notions of statehood and national borders must be discarded” it said. Which is presumably why they operate in Syria and Iraq as if it were one huge battlefield. For people under their rule it says “improving their conditions is less important than the condition of their religion”. Sure enough soon after capturing the Northern province of Mosul, ISIS has distributed an introductory note telling residence their hands will now be cut off if they steal, there will be no drugs and women should cover up and leave their homes only when necessary. A slick PR film, rattling the sabers, underscores in an hour of glorified violence another major goal, the elimination of Shia’s and Iraqi security forces. After capturing Saddam Husseins home town of Tikrit, ISIS posted a series of propaganda photos appearing to show the capture and execution of dozens if not hundreds of Iraqi soldiers. In short, ISIS is sticking to the plan“.
Western military personnel are fighting an enemy the Americans, British, Israelis and, Saudis reportedly intentionally helped manufacture which is being funded by the western tax payer who is paying for multiple sides of current conflicts in more ways than simply money.
In short, the final goal is a New World Order, a one world government where Jews are leaders of the worlds resources, as promised to the Jews by the British after World War 2, reported in the New York Times for all to see.
The plan goes back decades according to Barack Obama, just how far you may ask, maybe the following snippet may fill in part of the story;
“There were many humanist thinkers back in the 1500s who saw the corruption that there was in the church of the day, and they concluded in order to get rid of that corruption there would have to be a New World Order. They had read Platos Republic, Platos Republic in the 1500s was now a popular work and Plato too was a Greek Philosopher living in the 5th century BC, and he too was totally fed up with the corruption that there was in government. He said ‘If we could have a group of wise men who were well paid to rule over people there would be no corruption’, it’s a nice thought, but a rather naive one. We’ve seen such governments today and they are totally corrupt, but nevertheless there are people today many people who think this is a good idea. This then was the agenda, for the humanist thinkers back in the 1500s, but in order to do that they had to first destroy the existing world order. The existing world order based upon the rules of God, through the King, and through the church. But to even suggest this, would have been seen to be heresy in its day and they would have lost their heads quite literally. And so they had to go into a Secret Society, now the Freemasons in that day, these were craft masons, these were the men who actually built the cathedrals of the day, they were highly skilled men, and it was like an early trade union. And they wanted to keep the secrets of their skills to themselves, good reasons for that. And so, the humanist thinkers infiltrated into the craft masonic lodges, and they then became the speculative masons, they were called speculative masons by the craft masons because they wouldn’t of known a square from a compass, they were just the humanists, the idealists, the academics. And so there are within the masonic lodges today two types of mason, the craft mason who is the genuine mason who cuts stone and so on, and then there is the speculative mason and he is the humanist thinker, he’s the person, whos purpose, is to re-build a New World Order” (Author Ian Taylor).
