Souad Mekhennet, co-author of “The Eternal Nazi” and visiting fellow at Harvard, Johns Hopkins and the Geneva Centre for Security policy, claims that the U.S. government trained the Islamic State rebels who they are now bombing in Iraq. According to Mekhennet, rebels that the US government trained when trying to topple Syrian president Bashar al Assad have joined the Islamic State.

The old slogan “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” is once again coming to bite the U.S. government in the butt. Bin Laden was once a friend of the US government and the CIA, See Bin Laden comes home to roost. As if that wasn’t shady enough, see CIA Files Prove America Helped Saddam as He Gassed Iran.
