Who Created ISIS?

2012 Defense Intelligence Agency document: West will facilitate rise of Islamic State “in order to isolate the Syrian regime” by Brad Hoff.

Amazing what you can find with Freedom of Information Act lawsuits. Judicial Watch, a conservative group, obtained Defense Intelligence Agency documents saying that an Islamic State was a desired result:

“THE WEST, GULF COUNTRIES, AND TURKEY [WHO] SUPPORT THE [SYRIAN] OPPOSITION… THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A DECLARED OR UNDECLARED SALAFIST PRINCIPALITY IN EASTERN SYRIA (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE SUPPORTING POWERS TO THE OPPOSITION WANT, IN ORDER TO ISOLATE THE SYRIAN REGIME…”.

See the full DIA report.

Brad has a full workup of this issue with pointers into the recently released documents.

This does a lot to explain the government paranoia over ISIS and the absurd claims of government lackeys about the influence of ISIS in social media, etc.

Despite it being a creature of Western policy at its outset, members of ISIS have strayed from the path desired by the United States. The lesson of Saddam Hussein, who committed the same error, has yet to be learned.

Arab groups/governments, for some inexplicable reason, don’t realize they are lackies of the West and behave accordingly. Personally I am betting in the long run on a pan-Arab state that shakes off Western manipulation and controls its own destiny.


Update: A very good but lengthy followup by Brad Hoff: The DIA Gives an Official Response to LevantReport.com Article Alleging the West Backed ‘Islamic State’.
