According to the latest WikiLeaks release, Hillary Clinton admitted in an email to her campaign chairman John Podesta Saudi Arabia and Qatar fund the Islamic State.
She left something out.
The United States supports the Islamic State, too.
In fact, the terror group was created by the United States.
The precursor to the Islamic State was al-Qaeda in Iraq. It was the subject of a Pentagon psyop as part of a strategy to defeat the insurgency.
More recently, Judicial Watch released a declassified secret US government document that spells out the rise and exploitation of the Islamic State.
A few years after I spelled out the obvious, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh wrote:
To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has coöperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda.
There is plenty of evidence this support goes way beyond mere bolstering.
In 1979 the Carter administration began working with the Islamic mujahideen in Afghanistan to undermine the Soviets. The end result was not only the death of nearly 2 million people but the rise of al-Qaeda and the Taliban, both created by the CIA and Pakistan’s intelligence service and paid for by Saudi Arabia.
ISIS, formerly Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’s Tanzim Qaidat al-Jihad fi Bilad al-Rafidayn and now the self-proclaimed Islamic State, became the Frankenstein monster it is today following the US-sponsored “Arab Spring.”

The US State Department through its global network of foreign subversion funded and directed by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and a myriad of faux-NGOs, triggered a coordinated uprising across the Middle East. Protesters served as a smoke screen behind which heavily armed militants began campaigns of violence against the security forces of the respective nations targeted for destabilization. Violence in Egypt went largely unreported because of the speed of which the government collapsed and confrontations ceased. However in nations like Libya and Syria where governments remained resolute, the violence continued to escalate…
ISIS is the purposeful creation of the United States in its pursuit of regional hegemony in the Middle East, and ISIS’ atrocities were predicted long before the first shots were fired in 2011 in the Syrian conflict, long before the term “Islamic State” went mainstream.
This reality continues to be ignored. The latest hypocrisy comes from Secretary of State John Kerry. He says Syria and Russia must be brought up on war crimes charges for attempting to eject the Islamic State and associated Wahhabi Salafist vermin injected into Syria by the United States and its Gulf Emirate partners.
Clinton shares a special relationship with the fossilized House of Saud.
It remains to be seen how Clinton will react. She shares a special relationship with the fossilized House of Saud.
In June it was reported Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman admitted Riyadh has provided 20 percent of the total funding to the Clinton presidential campaign.
Clinton doesn’t need to react because the establishment media refuses to report these sort of things and if they do the revelations are soon plowed under “news” that is totally irrelevant, for instance, Donald Trump’s juvenile remarks about women.
Real issues are rarely if ever touched during presidential campaigns, although Trump has made it a point to go after Clinton on Iraq, Libya, and Syria. His remarks were encouraging at first but soon soured.
Trump’s confusion on the Middle East became obvious after he began staffing his campaign with neocons like former CIA boss James Woolsey and talked about bombing “the shit” out of Syria and Iraq where the Islamic State—actually a potpourri of loosely affiliated jihadi groups—kills not only Syrians but each other. Trump also believes it is a good idea to violate national sovereignty in violation of international law and steal oil.
The establishment media has made a big deal out of this while skimming over Clinton’s record in Libya—where 30,000 people were slaughtered—and completely ignoring her documented enthusiasm for supporting the “rebels” in Syria who are the same jihadists working with the media hyped Islamic State.
