Afghan Ex-President Karzai: ISIS Is A Tool Of The United States

ZeroPointNow's picture

In an interview with Voice of America (VOA) on Wednesday, ex-Afghan President Hamid Karzai - a former Washington Ally, made statements which go hand in hand with revelations from Wikileaks during the 2016 elections. Karzai criticized recent U.S. foreign policy - including the "weak" attack on an ISIS stronghold using the largest ever non-nuclear weapon (MOAB) which failed to wipe out the Islamic State - calling ISIS a tool of the United States:

I do not differentiate between Daesh [ISIS] and America... ...I consider Daesh their tool. -VOA

Prior to the 2016 US election, such assertions would seem outlandish - considering the aggressive battle the U.S. has waged against ISIS - however, when one considers revelations contained within the Wikileaks email releases, a startling picture begins to emerge; Saudi Arabia and Qatar were major donors to the Clinton Foundation, and Saudi Arabia and Qatar funded ISIS.

In a leaked email sent on August 17, 2014 by Hillary Clinton to her current campaign manager, John Podesta, who back then was counselor to Barack Obama, she admitted that Qatar and Saudi Arabia "are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region." -ZeroHedge

Furthermore, the United States allegedly warned ISIS of pending attacks and gave them safe passage from Mosul, Iraq into Syria in order to violently co-opt the Arab Spring protests and 'regime change' Bashar Al Assad.

"More than 9,000 Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL) militants will be redeployed from Mosul to the eastern regions of Syria to carry out a major offensive operation, which involves capturing Deir ez-Zor and Palmyra,” -RT

Meanwhile, pictures of John McCain hopping around the Middle East to meet with alleged ISIS leadership have been cropping up, and video has emerged of what some believe to be evidence of the CIA / ISIS staging a beheading video:

Wikileaks' Julian Assange provided historical context for how the 'CIA created ISIS' in Nov. 2016 comments:

In a statement to coincide with the release of the cables, known as "Carter Cables III", Mr Assange explained how events which unfolded in 1979, had begun a series of events that led to the rise of ISIS.


He said: "If any year could be said to be the "year zero" of our modern era, 1979 is it."

In a nutshell:

  • The CIA's decision to plow billions of dollars into arming the Mujahideen fighters in Afghanistan to fight the Soviet Union led to the creation of al-Qaeda.
    • "The invasion of Afghanistan by the USSR would see Saudi Arabia and the CIA push billions of dollars to Mujahideen fighters as part of Operation Cyclone, fomenting the rise of al-Qaeda and the eventual collapse of the Soviet Union."
  • This, in turn, led to the 9/11 attacks - which resulted in the US invasion of Iraq and the Afghanistan (while Hamid Karzai was President).
    • "The rise of al-Qaeda eventually bore the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States, enabling the US invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq and over a decade of war, leaving, at its end, the ideological, financial and geographic basis for ISIS."

So if we piece together the narrative:

  • The United States created the conditions which led to the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS / ISIL and various offshoots), starting in 1979.
  • Al Qaeda and the Islamic State have been roaming around the Middle East causing chaos - providing justification for US involvement in the region - such as Afghanistan.
  • After ISIS was created in the "vacuum" of US troops leaving Iraq - they were well funded by Clinton / 'deep state' allies Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and sent into Syria to co-opt the Arab Spring protests into an all out civil war.
  • Hillary Clinton was supposed to have won the 2016 US election - and her stated plan was to align with ISIS in Syria for the purpose of regime change, while preventing Russia from defending Syrian President Bashar al Assad. This would have put the U.S. in direct military conflict with Russia.
  • Clinton lost, and it appeared Syrian regime change was off the table... until John McCain made a mysterious trip to Syria at the end of February.
  • A month later, President Trump bombed a Syrian airbase in response to alleged use of chemical weapons by Assad - while having a 'beautiful piece of chocolate cake' with Chinese President Xi. Evidence that Assad was behind the chemical attack was weak from the start, and has grown increasingly suspicious over time.
  • In response to the backlash from Trump's base (who voted against Syrian involvement), Trump has stated that the United States simply bombed the airbase to 'send a message' and that we would not send troops into Syria.

That said - all it's going to take to walk back on that statement are more 'False Flag' chemical attacks pinned on Bashar Al Assad. Once a pattern is established and the case is made to the UN, Assad will be 'regime changed' and a new Western-friendly puppet government will allow that beautiful, shiny pipeline carrying rich, creamy (chocolate) Saudi / Qatari oil through the country.

If ISIS is in fact a "tool of the United States," which was armed and funded by Saudi Arabia and Qatar, perhaps it explains why they have never attacked Israel - their ideological arch-enemy. Wouldn't it be easy for ISIS to at least loan some of their military hardware to the Palestinians? In fact, the "ISIS tool" theory makes even more sense when you consider the recent alliance between the USA, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and a handful of Arab nations - organized by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, with the stated goal of fighting ISIS and taking out Iran's 'regional ambitions.' Is an expedition to root out ISIS in Iran next? 

Perhaps Karzai was right; (Saudi backed) ISIS sets 'em up, the USA and our allies knock 'em down, and ISIS re-brands as a new enemy in the region after yet another successful destabilization campaign. Rinse and repeat.

ISIS is Taliban/Qaeda, etc.

Karzai is Taliban.

He must really be upset with MOAB.

He has needed slapped for a long time;  perhaps Trump will find the time.

The Presence of the IRGC in Assad's Military Bases Including Al-Shayrat Air Base - National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI)

"Shayrat airport is run by the IRGC forces [top Iranian military]... this airport (Shayrat) ... had been attacked by the US missiles. It is also significant strategically for the Assad regime. Additionally, the Commanders of the Iran regime are present in this air base.

... The IRGC forces have arbitrarily ordered the commanders of Assad in the airport. al-Shayrat is directed by the Iran regime and the measures are implemented in the hotel of the airport. This airport is among the most significant educational bases in which most of the military operations had been carried out.

Iran military actually runs Syria, Iran ordered the chemical attack to disrupt US actions against ISIS in Syria

What on earth did they do to Karzai that he became so hostile? Did they stop paying? I have noticed that elsewhere, when they are in office they are such faithful little lapdogs but when they've left office they bark at the US. 

It had been predicted for a while that the pitchforks come out one day because of the cost of foreign wars. Washington can prevent that next week with their budget, putting Americans First and foreign wars last. Too much positive thinking, naive, being a dreamer, I know. Maybe it's time anyhow to settle some matters with pitchforks. And so starts the 2017 fighting season.

The pen is mightier than the sword. Who needs facts or truth when a perfectly good fiction can be told. Karzai is a tool of big oil having come from that background. You think that was an honest election? Francis B, William Stratford, Bill Shakespeare and his good pens at Grays Inn can make one believe just about anything if you're not wise as the serpent. Can't wait for the fear induced "big drop" Monday so I can buy calls and ride back to the green close. What a farce ZH n ZP have become but no one else gives behind the scenes insight. Unfortunately they are still trying to gain control of your mind like everyone else. Last stage of defense.

Setarcos's picture

Well "they" have certainly controlled your mind if, as it seems from what you fairly unintelligibly wrote, you still believe that "19 Arab hijackers", organized by Osama bin Laden, caused WTCs 1, 2 & 7 to collapse at free-fall acceleration.   WTC7 was not even hit by an aircraft of any kind, PLUS there was massive damage to the Pentagon (probably a cruise missile) all on the same day, with NO steel-framed building ever having collapsed before or since.

You are right about one thing - at least as regards yourself and other sheeple, i.e. "Who needs facts or truth, when a perfectly good fiction can be told." Actually not entirely right, e.g. the Gulf of Tonkin lie was not good fiction, nor Saddam Hussein's WMD, NOR the NIST report on 9/11 which you apparently believe, nor your opinions about Karzai and ISIS, which you can only have by "they" having controlled your mind via the MSM.  Nevertheless you seem to be a tad paranoid.  Your proposition about the ZH "they" is absurd, bizarre.

"perhaps it explains why they have never attacked Israel"

It also explains why Isrel has allied with ISIS to attack the Syrian military on many occasions and to treat wounded jihadis.

"Friedman is basically admitting that ISIS is our proxy army." Correct. Another spooky operator intertwined with Israeli miltary-intelligence named David Goldman writes the same thing in a recent PJMedia column...

"We muzzle the Sunni jihadists whom we (or our allies like Saudi Arabia) supported," ... So here we have an insider like Goldman dialed into the IDF and Israeli intelligence, openly admitting that the jihadi trerror armies are an asset to be used against Russia-China as a bargaining chip to allow the US to attack Iran...

"all it's going to take to walk back on that statement are more 'False Flag' chemical attacks pinned on Bashar Al Assad."

Not exactly. Putin has laid down a Red Line declaring that another US attack in Syria -- under any pretext--will be met with retaliation... Following Putin's declaration, McMaster and Dump seem to have backed down about deposing Assad... but clearly any other US military action in Syria will launch direct US- Russia military confrontation... something that never happened during the Cold War, which was always fought by proxies.

Didn't think so.

The United States obviously serves as the military arm of the global banking cartel. In essence, we were bought out by a gang of corporate entities without a hint of national allegiance. The US is a colony once more. Our main export is men and weaponry. War is Us.

Nothing important really. A couple of wimmen from Bam's time talking so much that they cant really get a grip on themselves.

Valerie Jarret speaking to a captive Chicago audience. Self righteous clam.

Loretta Lynch at Harvard discusses the meaning of the rule of law.

For what it is worth, Karzai's brother was owner of a fabulous dining establishment on N. Charles Street in Baltimore. I don't think it is there anymore.

Terrorism: Theater to Demonize and Destroy a Target

Terrorism is rarely the work of people who are angry because they have been wronged. It is rarely waged for the cause that it is declared for.

Terrorism is theater that is staged by a state in order to demonize the cause that it is declared for. The goal is either to destroy what is demonized or to create an alliance for a bad cause.

Palestinian terrorism was created by Israel in order demonize Palestinians. The goal was to justify the killing and dispossession of Palestinians. We all know that by now.

The Gladio project launched communist red-brigade terrorism in Europe in order to demonize imaginary communists. The goal was not to destroy that imaginary communism in Western Europe. The goal was to push Europe into creating NATO and the European Community under conditions that are good for the controlling banksters.

Trump is smarter than all his voters and supporters. He understood this.

Radical Islamic Terrorism is state-sponsored theater with the goal of demonizing Islam. The ultimate goal is to exterminate Muslims, starting with Arabs who speak the language of the Koran.

After declaring that he will destroy Radical Islamic Terrorism, Trump embraced Arab nations (Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, UAE). Why? Because the goal of ISIS is to demonize and destroy Arab countries. Trump banned travel from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Sudan because these countries are already under strong influence or control of ISIS.

Trump declared war on Iran and named Iran the top state-sponsor of terrorism because he saw clear evidence that Iran sponsors ISIS, Hezbollah, and other anti-Arab, anti-Islamic terrorist organizations whose name is Islamic but whose goal is obviously to demonize Muslims and Arabs. Khomeini actually created the Anti-Islamic Republic of Iran. The Shiite Amal militias in Lebanon, the precursors of Hezbollah, were the first to massacre Palestinians. People forget.

The ultimate goal of ISIS and other radical Islamic terror groups is to turn regional Arab-killing wars into World War III.

Trump wants to nip all that warmongering and terrorism theater in the bud and prevent war.

Posa's picture

Correct. 9/11 was the ULTIMATE staged Terror Spectacle... as the Congressional 9/11 Inquiry (NOT the 9/11 Commission) documents, 9/11 was a joint venture among US intelligence and Saudi intelligence (right up to the Royal Family)...though ultimately the execution was in the hands of the US military that made one of a dozen military exercises that day "go live".... and yes, the purpose of the Terror Spectacle was to shred what was left of the US Constitution and usher in the age of Perpetual War and an Orwellian Police state.

The best thing you can do is to stop buying products made in the USA.

It is time to make America more shit than it is.

Anything that you can do to help the Empire go down the plug will be appreciated.

All Risk No Reward's picture

The Empire isn't "America."  The Empire only uses America.  The Empire uses all Western countries.

It is a sthough the Western governments are an outward facing "Beast" system, but the Beast system is ridden (controlled) by a global, non-threatening, Money Power...  shall we say "woman?"

UzBanksterstan is supra-national, lady (there has to be one!) and gentlemen.  It does not respect borders.

The Empire has a name, too...  but almost nobody knows it.

Debt-Money Monopolist Mega-Corporate Fascist Empire.

That's **exactly** what it is based upon observation outside the Bankster propaganda Matrix.

Oh, and there aren't many products made in the USA anyway.

And no extra effort is required to gut America because gutting America **is** on the Debt-Money Monopolist Mega-Corporate Fascist Empire's short to-do list.

Google about:  Gen. Wesley Clark saying in October 2007 that a Pentagon source had told him weeks after 9/11 of the Pentagon’s plan to destroy the governments in 7 countries in five years – we’re going to start with Iraq, and then we’re going to move to Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran.  Of course it is taking longer than that because our government is incompetent.  While you're at it Google: Vietnam War Gulf of Tokin incident. where again our government lied to the people to trick us into war. What can I say déjà vu baby.  Wars are big money.

Meanwhile  Katzai personally looted as much as he possibly could during his tenure as president. All that money that went to Afghanistan - pallets of cash - most of it was looted. A few years back, Karzai's brother was caught at the airport in Dubai with several million in cash.... crisp US C-notes. He was detained briefly, then released with the cash. No charges, no investigaton. Nothing. This is what your sons and daughters are dying for over there. Its the asshole of the fucking world. Let them kill each other from now until the end of time. Its not worth one American life.

Given to Karzai as bribes for Halliburton to get those fabulous $T resource leases, printed and palletized by the Treasury from your last life savings. Karzai took the cash, then awarded every one of the leases to India and China. Cheney went all blitzkreig with The Surge operational planning, that Obama later green-lighted, and was ultimately blamed for.

For his role in 9/11, for Yellow Cake and for The Surge, $Ts looted, 1,000s of our citizens murdered and maimed, Cheney deserves to be beheaded in front of the TV cameras this 4oJuly. With a plastic picnic knife preferably.

The more trump was hitting on isis and talking big, I knew he was lying because the CIA is isis and he knew that, but most of the people they become patriotic as soon as you raise the flag.

China and Russia are calling trump's bluff in NK to embarrass him , he has two choices now, either he walks away or go to war and get destroyed , the generals played him good, unfortunately they will be dead and would not be able to spend the money the war machine promised them.

DC, I'm an Arab-American, live in America. Just sick and tired of Arabs being holocausted by Iranians (and it's not a fake holocaust, and many Jews are pro Iran and part of the Arab-killers) and nobody cares except Trump. Most articles are in English, but those who claim to be experts should at least read Arabic.

Obama and Hillary should hang for what they did to Arabs, and for unleashing Iran against Arabs. The Arab-killing must stop, that's all I care about.

Both Christians and Arabs love Jesus and are waiting for his return, at least they can get along.

We are a tool of the Illuminati  -the Shadow Government=Rothschild Bankers and other Elite families that ruled much of the world for centuries  -perhaps milleniums. I don't know how powerful they are-or that they are all powerful. Like Cyberdyne, public awareness may not change in a milli-second, but like the fall of the Soviet Union-things can change very, very quickly. Self awareness of the sheeple is essential - the internet is the vehicle in which this may happen under the right circumstances-and perhaps with Divine intervention  -don't know that this would happen, but I believe it could. If it doesn't, we are destined to be a planet of sheeple-serfs under a harsh feudal system  -with most on the planet targeted for termination. That is the New World Order- that is our destiny unless we can awaken and stop it.
