New financial resources for army families facing natural disasters and other emergencies
ISIS’s rapid rise to power in 2014, combined with its real-world battlefield achievements in Iraq and Syria, amazed everyone.
Naturally, when a non-state actor that few people have heard of capture so much territory and rout an Iraqi army trained and equipped by the United States, a few eyebrows will rise. After more than a year, more atrocities, wonders destroyed and little progress in their defeat, rumors will begin to circulate as to how such a feat is possible. Where does ISIS get its funding and equipment from? How is it possible that the most powerful military force doesn’t seem to freeze an ISIS leader? Why did the Iraqis drop their guns so quickly?
Lots of questions with few real answers will cause some people to create those answers, even if there is little evidence for it. As long as there is no evidence against it, people will always twist facts to fit theories instead of theories to fit facts. Here are some of the more twisted theories about ISIS.
1. Hillary Clinton admitted that Americans created and supported ISIS
There is a rumor on the internet that the most recent Hillary Clinton delivered, Difficult choices, contains a passage where Clinton admits that the United States decided to support and create ISIS, “as part of a plan to support the Muslim Brotherhood and establish friendly governments of the United States.”
This was recently repeated by Egyptian Minister of Culture Gaber Asfour on Egyptian television. It has also been repeated in Jordan, Lebanon and the Palestinian Territory.
In this story, the United States wanted to invade Egypt to prevent the ousting of Mohammed Morsi, who was a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, but the plan was thwarted by elite Egyptian military units.
This theory proves that Arabs and Republicans have an equal loathing for Hillary Clinton.
2. Leaked Edward Snowden documents show US plan to create ISIS
This theory claims that Edward Snowden stole hidden of documents from NSA computers includes plans to establish the Islamic terrorist organization. According to Iranian state television, Operation Hornet’s Nest was supposed to justify further US intervention in the Middle East.
The United States, along with the United Kingdom, Canada, Israel and the Sunni Kingdoms of Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, allege that these governments conspired in several ways to create ISIS and maintain a presence in the countries Arabs.
3. The head of ISIS is under the mind control powers of the CIA
An Iranian site complaints ISIS leader (or “caliph”) Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has spent more than five years in US detention in Iraq and the Zionist New York Times is trying to help cover it up. Why has he been detained for so long? The CIA wanted to create a bogus opposition group in Iraq to set up Iraqis who were against the United States to target them more easily, or worse.
While detained at Camp Bucca, Iraq, the CIA transformed Baghdadi into a “Manchurian candidate-style” robot in the same way the CIA controlled. Jim jones, the infamous cult leader, a similar CIA puppet, so that he could create a “Muslim Jonestown” – ISIS.
4. Baghdadi is an Israeli intelligence agent
The real name of the caliph is Shimon Elliot, born to Jewish parents and trained by the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad. He is an expert in psychological warfare against Arabs and an expert in spy agent.
Iranian intelligence sources also say it is cooperating with the US secret service and UK authorities to recruit political opponents of the two companies.
Its mission is to enter groups and countries that pose a threat to Israel and destroy them from within to make them an easier target for Zionist forces or to create an enemy outside of Israel for let the enemies of Israel fight against each other.
5. The United States has ignored warnings about ISIS / fueled the rise of ISIS
A 2012 defense intelligence agency report showing an analysis of the state of the war in Syria in 2012 was published via a Freedom of Information Act request in 2015. The analysis was only observations and predictions of what the United States knew in the ‘time. There are no political directives or actions taken. Yet depending on who reviews the document, each side is using it as evidence of a narrative that President Obama knew about ISIS and chose to do nothing OR the United States. fed ISIS at destabilize the region in a “divide and conquer” strategy.
6. Daesh videos are fakes
This theory stems from the difficulty in finding the videos where they are posted once their existence is made public (most media remove them), that they don’t look real (or as Hollywood thinks a execution should look like), or that they are created to inspire more false flag attacks.
The website Infowar further fueled this view in an article about the CIA’s creation of fake al-Qaeda videos during the 2003 preparations for the US invasion of Iraq.
7. ISIS captured MH370 for use against America on 9/11/14
US Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney has been quoted in US media as saying that the United States should expect a terrorist attack on September 11, 2014 in New York City. This time ISIS would be the perpetrators, but not al Qaeda. He believed Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, which disappeared in March 2014 on its way to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur, would reappear in New York, flown by ISIS.
“It’s going to be overwhelming,” he said. “The point is, we might even revisit an MH370 surface from September 11, 2014… We should go to DEFCON 1, our highest readiness, and be ready. ”
