JNN 26 Feb 2015 Washington : A retired U.S. General has acknowledged that Washington’s allies created the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group to confront the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah.
Retired General Wesley Clark, who was the Supreme Allied Commander Europe of NATO from 1997 to 2000, made the revelation in a recent interview with the CNN.
“ISIL got started through funding from our friends and allies,” Clark admitted.
The only group that will fight Hezbollah is ISIL because they are “zealots” and resemble a “Frankenstein,” he said.
Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, is a novel written by English author Mary Shelley about eccentric scientist Victor Frankenstein, who creates a grotesque but sentient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Since publication of the novel, the name “Frankenstein” is often used to refer to the monster itself.
General Clark did not specify exactly which U.S. allies were involved in the creation of the ISIL. However, he said the terrorist group is part of a strategy to destroy Hezbollah with an army of extremists.
Clark is known for his critical comments regarding Washington’s War Plans.
In a book published in 2003, he said the U.S. is pursuing a campaign of wars that already started in Iraq and later include Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, and Sudan.
Many remember General Wesley Clark as the man who almost started World War III by ordering the British to fire on Russian peacekeepers who landed in the Kosovo capital, Pristina, before the Americans. British commander of the international KFOR (Kosovo Force) peacekeeping force, General Sir Mike Jackson, is reported to have replied, “I’m not going to start the third world war for you.”
One of the most interesting things about Gen. Clark, however, is his propensity to blurt fascinating things out every now and again.
Who can forget his interview with Amy Goodman back in 2007 where he revealed that one of the Top Generals in the Pentagon had showed him a Memo from then Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld not long after the 9/11 attack outlining U.S. Global War Plans. According to Clark at the time, the general said:
The ISIL terrorists, many of whom were initially trained by the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) in Jordan in 2012 to destabilize the Syrian government, have seized large parts of territory in Syria and around one-third of the territory of Iraq. They are engaged in crimes against humanity in the areas under their control.
They have been carrying out horrific acts of violence such as public decapitations , crucifixions , and Burning Captives alive against all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, and Christians.
