The Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group is a US funded mercenary organization trained in CIA bases in the Middle East to overthrow the Syrian and other sovereign governments, an American scholar and radio host says.
The US government and its allies in the region “armed, trained and organized” ISIL to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, said Dr. Kevin Barrett, a founding member of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance.
ISIL was created by Zionist elements in the US and Israel to defend their geostrategic interests and destroy independent governments in the Middle East, Barrett told Press TV on Monday.
Barrett, who’s also an editor at Veterans Today, said US Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is part of that Zionist agenda promoting terrorism and genocide.
During the Democratic presidential debate on Saturday, Clinton blamed the rise and growth of ISIL on Assad after calling him a “reformer” four years earlier when she was secretary of state.
“We have people in power in this country who are comparable to the very worst despots and mass murders in history and Hillary Clinton is one of them,” Barrett said. “She’s not any better really than the Republicans.”
“I’m afraid the United States is essentially heading for the proverbial dustbin of history as its empire crumbles,” he added. “The quality of leadership we have these days is so abysmal that I wouldn’t be surprised if it crumbles in a horrible way sometime in the next few years.”
“I’m not sure we’re actually going to get through another presidential administration post-2016 without a complete societal collapse and civil war here in the United States and the reason is the absolute lack of integrity of people like Hillary Clinton.”
