US creates terrorist groups to justify wars: American journalist

The United States is creating terrorist groups to justify its wars on foreign lands, an American journalist says.

“It is becoming very obvious…that the US intelligence community is involved in funding ISIS if you look at the military support that ISIS receives,” Mike Harris, an editor at the Veterans Today online journal, told Press TV in an interview on Thursday.

He was commenting on the Pentagon’s admission on Wednesday that ISIL terrorists captured a bundle of US weapons airdropped in the Syrian border town of Kobani earlier this week.

“The Pentagon confirmation that ISIS recently intercepted a weapons airdrop is very troubling,” Harris said, using an alternative acronym for the terrorist group, which is operating in Syria and Iraq.  

“There have been a number of anomalous things, that ISIS has captured a number of ground vehicles that were conveniently prepositioned. All of this gives me the implication that perhaps we have treasonous elements within our government,” he noted.

He went on to say that “terrorists don’t put themselves on the ground for free; it takes money to be able to arm them, to equip them, to get them trained and they have to be paid; where this money coming from.”

According to reports, ISIL terrorists were trained by the CIA in Jordan in 2012 to destabilize the Syrian government. They now control large parts of Syria and Iraq.

According to the Pentagon, US warplanes have conducted more than 260 airstrikes against ISIL in Iraq since mid-August. Some Western states have also participated in some of the strikes in Iraq.

Since late September, the US and some of its Arab allies -- Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates -- have been carrying out airstrikes against ISIL inside Syria without any authorization from Damascus or a UN mandate.

Harris, of the Veterans Today, said, “We had a series of whistleblowers come forward and tell us about the 90,000 bank accounts that have been discovered and detected through the Union Bank of Switzerland, but there has been no action on this.”

“Our own Congress has been notified of this and they’re still taking no action on this. Significant members of armed services got familiar [with it]…and yet they are doing nothing to track down where the martial support for ISIS is coming from. This is embarrassment,” he added.

He stated that this implies treason at “the highest levels within the US government. The implication is that the US is creating terrorism around the world in order to justify military adventurism.”
