Bilderberg steering committee member and architect of a globalist order, Henry Kissinger, told Fox News on Wednesday the United States is responsible for arming ISIS.
Kissinger did not say the arming of the Islamic State was a deliberate process.
In March, Qasim al-Araji, the head of the Badr Organization in Iraq, told parliament he had evidence the U.S. has deliberately armed the Islamic Army, according to a report carried by the Arabic language Almasalah.
Iranian media and other sources have claimed on at least two occasions U.S. military aircraft dropped weapons in areas held by the Islamic State.
“The Iraqi intelligence sources reiterated that the US military planes have airdropped several aid cargoes for ISIL terrorists to help them resist the siege laid by the Iraqi army, security and popular forces,” Iraqi intelligence claimed in December.
“What is important is that the US sends these weapons to only those that cooperate with the Pentagon and this indicates that the US plays a role in arming the ISIL.”
In January Iraqi MP Majid al-Ghraoui said American aircraft delivered weapons and equipment to ISIS southeast of Tikrit, located in Salahuddin province.
The London-based organization Conflict Armament Research previously reported that ISIS fighters are using “significant quantities” of arms including M16 assault rifles marked “property of the US government.”
In June Aaron Klein, writing for WorldNetDaily, reported that members of ISIS were trained in 2012 by U.S. instructors working at a secret base in Jordan, according to informed Jordanian officials.
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul said last year ISIS was able to capture large areas of Iraq due to arms transfers from “moderates” in Syria fighting a proxy war against the government of Bashar al-Assad.
“I think we have to understand first how we got here,” he told CNN.
“I think one of the reasons why ISIS has been emboldened is because we have been arming their allies. We have been allied with ISIS in Syria.”
Kissinger Disagrees with Rand Paul on ISIS
Kissinger told Fox News he strongly disagrees with Rand Paul’s approach on ISIS.
In September Paul said US interventionist policies are responsible for the situation in the Middle East.
Paul said from the Senate floor there “were no WMDs” in Iraq and “that Hussein, Qadhafi, and Assad were not a threat to us. Doesn’t make them good, but they were not a threat to us.”
“Intervention created this chaos,” he added. “To those who wish unlimited intervention and boots on the ground everywhere, remember the smiling poses of politicians pontificating about so-called freedom fighters and heroes in Libya, in Syria, and in Iraq. Unaware that the so-called freedom fighters may well have been allied with kidnappers and are killers and jihadists.”
Obama Sends Hundreds of US Troops Into Iraq
Kissinger told Fox News that he opposes “boots on the ground” in Iraq and Syria to defeat ISIS. He said, however, the United States should send special forces to work with Sunni, Shia and Kurdish groups fighting against the terror organization and also provide intelligence and target spotters for the Iraqi military.
Obama has approved a plan to send an additional 450 U.S. troops to Iraq. Moreover, the administration has approved a plan to create a training base at al-Taqaddum in western Iraq between the key Anbar provincial cities of Ramadi and Fallujah which are currently under ISIS control.
“I don’t think it’s a new strategy … because we’re continuing to execute the strategy that we have,” U.S. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno told CBS News.
