U.S. General: West Created ISIS

By Pete Papaherakles —

General Wesley Kanne Clark, Sr., former Supreme Allied commander of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) during the war against Yugoslavia and presidential candidate, revealed recently on CNN that the Islamic State (ISIS) was “funded by our friends and allies in order to fight Hezbollah.” Although hailed by many as a whistleblower for this revelation, is it really possible that a man of his stature, who led NATO in slaughtering tens of thousands of innocent Serbs under the completely fabricated charges that they were genociding Muslims, really be telling the American people the truth now, or was this “leak” a half-truth designed to mislead?

Clark stated in a recent CNN interview: “ISIS got started through funding from our friends and allies. Because as people will tell you in the region that if you want somebody who will fight to the death against Hezbollah, you don’t put out a recruiting poster saying, ‘sign up for us. We’re gonna make a better world.’ You go after zealots and you go after these religious fundamentalists. That’s who fights Hezbollah. It’s like a Frankenstein.”

This is not the first time Clark has revealed inside information about the wars in the Middle East. In a 2007 interview with “Democracy Now” radio talk show host Amy Goodman, Clark made big news by revealing that only days after the 9-11 attacks one of the top generals in the Pentagon had showed him a memo from then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld outlining long-term U.S. war plans even before the invasion of Afghanistan had commenced.

According to Clark, the general had told him, “We’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.” For many, this was proof that the wars were planned ahead of time earning Clark credibility in the antiwar movement.

So Clark is once again revealing inside information that ISIS is not simply a homegrown terrorist organization but that it “got started through funding from our friends and allies” and its purpose is to fight Hezbollah.

He doesn’t tell us which friends funded it and we are left to guess that he probably means Israel, Saudi Arabia and other countries in the area hostile to Hezbollah and Syrian President Bashar al Assad such as Qatar and Turkey. But although the general is telling us part of the truth, he is being somewhat misleading by obscuring both the real source of the funding and the true purpose of ISIS.

These Islamic “zealots” Clark is referring to go back to the creation of Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda in Afghanistan in the early 1980s, funded by the United States in order to fight the Soviet Union.

While the U.S. officially condemns ISIS, it has routinely been caught funding them. The Express Tribune, an affiliate of The New York Times, reported in late January, in an article titled, “Startling revelations: IS operative confesses to getting funds via U.S.,” that Pakistani security forces captured an ISIS fighter who has revealed that he and many fighters alongside him received funds that were routed through the U.S.

AMERICAN FREE PRESS published an article in August 2014—“ISIS a CIA-Mossad Creation?”—stating that it was revealed through 1.7 million pages of leaked documents by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden that ISIS is a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)-Mossad-MI6 [Military Intelligence, Section 6, part of the UK’s Secret Intelligence Service (SIS)] operation and its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has been reputed to be a Mossad-trained operative whose real name is Elliot Shimon, the son of Jewish parents.

Neocon Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) had repeatedly been photographed in Syria with al-Baghdadi and other terrorists in June 2013, several months before ISIS was officially launched, though this claim has been disputed by mainstream media outlets. It has also been reported that the CIA was involved in training ISIS in Jordan in 2012 to destabilize the Syrian government.


Clark’s claim that ISIS was created simply to fight Hezbollah is also misleading.

The Snowden documents contend that British, American and Israeli intelligence created ISIS as “a terrorist organization capable of centralizing all extremist actions across the world,” using a strategy called Hornet’s Nest, designed to “protect Israel.” According to the documents, “the only solution for the protection of the Jewish state is to create an enemy near its borders.”

Yet even this is misleading, as Israel is not exactly a shrinking violet.

It is Israel’s neighbors who need protection from the Jewish state. The real purpose of ISIS may not be completely understood yet, but it seems to play several roles both locally and globally. Surely it is being used as a backdoor entry into Syria to take down Assad, but its activities are not confined to Iraq and Syria. We recently saw the 21 beheadings in Libya, whether real or staged, and ISIS is urging new attacks on the “infidel West” following the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

It is reputed that ISIS has terrorist cells in many European countries as well as in the U.S. ISIS is also used to cause problems for Russian leader Vladimir Putin in Chechnya with its terrorist “Chechen Legion” as well as supporting Ukrainian-Israeli oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky’s Dzhokhar’s Dudayev Battalion in Eastern Ukraine against the pro-Russian rebels.

ISIS is poised to become a global political-terrorist force used by the intelligence agencies to destabilize countries, escalate Islamophobia and justify intervention by the Western military-industrial complex. Locally, it will help facilitate the Zionist dream of “Greater Israel” from the Nile to the Euphrates.

  1. I heard a rumor yesterday. Can someone confirm whether it is true or not? Obama wrote three books prior to becoming President. In one book, I am told, he wrote that if there were a war between America and Islam, he would be on the side of Islam. Is this true?


  2. I have done extensive research on the Alliance between the Moon Empire and the Korean Intelligence Agency since the early 1970s in line with the Fraser Hearings by the U.S. Congress on the Korean Bribery Scandal. As early as 1963, the American CIA issued a report stating that the Unification Church of Reverend Moon was used as a political tool to fight communism by the intelligence community of South Korea, in particular by its founder and director General Kim Jong Pil.

    After the Korean prophet immigrated to Upstate New York in 1970, he was welcomed by every governor and mayor in the United States. When the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, Moon unified with the Russian President Gorbachev during a Victory in Moscow festival, that our free press was not supposed to cover and write about. The Moon Religion seeks to unify Christianity by replacing Jesus Christ with Sun Moon, which is unacceptable by Christianity Today, but tolerated by the New Right of the Republican Party.

    The Moon Empire also befriended the House of Saud through the World Anti Communist League and PLO leader Yassir Arafat. In fact radical Moonies and Moslems share their divine principles to create a worldwide theocracy.

    It should not come as a surprise that the Neocons in Washington are in bed with the leaders of Jihadism in the Middle East and use Al Nusra, Al Qaeda and ISIS to topple the regime of dictator Assad in Syria. It has even been suggested by critical observers that wounded ISIS troops are being treated in Israëli hospitals and that their leader is a native of Israel and changed his birth certificate.

    After the terrorist attacks in Paris, the general public and the media will keep silent about dirty politics and strategies that were carried out on their behalf in a democratic society. God Bless America.

  3. One thing that I’m sure, is EVERYTHING WAS PROGRAMMED and we have no choice because they controlled everything in this world. They controlled governments, banks, weapons, laws, forces and others. Everything can happen under their power; they make people as their puppet.
  4. It is a great article based on information and logical deduction. Being a Muslim, it was out of my league to think how a Muslim can behead another innocent human being, what ISIS is doing, in the name of Muslim and Islam. Also it was out of my thinking how ISIS is maintaining website, their medium to collect member and preaching their heinous crime, without being caught by U.S. intelligence; how they are getting those sophisticated weapons to resist U.S.-led coalition attack; how they are getting funds! An inner voice always told me that ISIS can not be Muslim-led organization, ignorant followers, especially young and depressed and misled maybe. Now, it make sense. The Jews, according to Quran, is the most intelligent nation, but at the same time, they are the greatest violators of the God or Allah’s order and instructions. All the time they violated the Allah and his messengers’ order and guideline for their personal gain and they even rewrote the Almighty’s ‘revelations.’ They value short term gain over anything and everything in this world and the ‘next world’ even. That’s why we see they are involved in all kind of business which are forbidden (due to their evil effects on society) at the same time in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. They are the greatest enemy of peace in this world, and that’s why, righteously by the prophet Mohammad (PBUH), they were expelled from Madinah, the first Islamic state. Every nation has to be aware of them and their characteristics, otherwise they have to be the prey of the Jews. My comment seems to be racist, I am extremely sorry for that, specially my apologies to any Jew who has read my comment. I don’t hate them for their such character, rather I pray to almighty to give them conscience and good sense of humanity and peace.
  5. This is an important article. Pete Papaherakles pulled together original information from a wide variety of sources into a well reasoned article. Since this article was published in March, 2015, additional events have occurred that are consistent with Papaherakles’ analysis.
  6. There will be wars and reports of wars, see you are not terrified. For these things must take place. For these things must take place. Have taken place, and are taking place but the end is nigh!

    1. The king of the south Hitler was defeated. Hitler had won the war against Britain but for the prize of the Holy Land Britain was promised USA would be brought into the war against Germany. So they bombed Pearl Harbor as explained in Benjamin Freedman video. This fulfills Daniel 11:9-14;15; and the sons of the robbers of Daniel’s people will be carried along to try making a vision come true and they will have to stumble.

    2. We are at the end now. They have entered the land of the Decoration being Israel also in fulfillment of Ezekiel 38. Christianity are looking for Gog but he came and is at his end. They have taken possession of many lands including Ethiopia and Libya. UK actually do rule over the treasures of Egypt they are held in British museum. “But there will be reports that will disturb him, out of the sun-rising and out of the north, and he will certainly go forth in a great rage in order to annihilate and to devote many to destruction. And he will plant his tents between the grand sea and the holy mountain of Decoration and he will have to come all the way to his end, and there will be no helper for him.

    The King of the North has gathered the nations together for the battle of the Great Day of God the Almighty. Judgment is about to begin.

  7. “Is it really possible that a man of his stature, who led NATO in slaughtering tens of thousands of innocent Serbs under the completely fabricated charges that they were genociding Muslims…”

    Calling genocide in Bosnia “completely fabricated” even though those actions in the Bosnian War were recognized as genocide worldwide especially in the U.S. is hard to believe. NATO bombing might have killed some civilians, but that’s nothing compared to 8,000 dead in one town in just a few days.

  8. Gaza Auschwitz-Concentration Camp/Extermination Camp is the product and shame of the American stupid ‘goyim’ and the AIPAC Zionist mass murderers in Ama-ruca = Female serpent/dragon continent.
  9. ISIS takes over from Hamas in Gaza, loads of people die, then Israel undertakes defensive action with widespread support for change. Massive force/violence wipes out the Palestinians. Collect a return on investment in Gaza and the West Bank.
  10. As I examine the things that are being set in place to seat the World Dictator in TYRE, so the 10th Economical World Power, the W.E.O.G. can be seated in the W.T.O. ISIS and the other Military Groups were set in place by the C.I.A. and Israel. WAKE up AMERICA! SATAN and His EVIL WORKERS SET in place 3 World WARS, 2 are past and the 3rd one in just around the Bend. It is The ARAB Nations and Israel, that will make up the W.E.O.G. This will complete the 10 Horns in REV.13. God’s Word does not LIE. AS soon as this 10th Power is seated, the Man will be set in TYRE to RULE the World TRADE Org. He is the Son of the Anti-Christ. There is a Spiritual WAR going on for the Souls of Mankind. There are 5 more Major things to be set in place, and He will be seated in TYRE. He will shew His EVIL WORKS to the World. REJECT these EVIL Works and you will be rescued BY an Angel, Agree to the works, NO for you will be in GRAVE DANGER.
  11. U.S. created the Taliban, U.S. created al-Qaeda, U.S. created ISIS. They did all this because ISRAEL need them to. Israel is the world’s most rogue nation, a racist state that not only terrorizes its enemies, but its friends. Israel tortures and terrorizes its own citizens! The West does the bidding of Israel. U.S. wages war on whoever Israel tells them to. Yes, the U.S. does these things, but they are a puppet whose strings are pulled by Israel.
  12. So what, the U.S. created ISIS. You see any high-level government official aholes going to jail for it? The criminals in Washington can do what ever they please. The sheep will do nothing about it. Only a handful of people are aware and care what is happening. I’m embarrassed to admit I am a American.

    The sheeple won’t take the time to keep up with current events. You think they are going to care the U.S. is behind ISIS? They are programmed to believe the crooked government. The corporate media has done an excellent job dumbing-down the sheep.

  13. Why should a NATO former supreme allied commander make such revelations? Does he simply mean that it’s US little guys in the Middle East who are behind terrorism, not the U.S. itself, or is he simply bragging? Every decent creature on planet Earth knows that U.S. imperialism is losing ground and would destroy the planet through all sorts of fascist private armies. Hoping the “American Century” will last a bit longer. Would that teach Americans any lessons more than what the military industrial complex is actually doing to them, and much more brutally?
