Many Americans still don’t know who fathered Daesh terrorists: Analyst

“Not all Americans understand yet that ISIS is the creation of the CIA and it is being supplied by the UK and the USA,” John Miranda told Press TV on Wednesday.

Many Americans still do not know who fathered the Daesh (ISIL) group, which is committing acts of terrorism in Syria and Iraq, an American political commentator in Kentucky says.

In a phone interview with Press TV on Wednesday, John Miranda said that the CIA created ISIL and the US and UK are funding these terrorists.

“These are supposed to be the worst terrorists in the world that are terrorizing areas of Iraq and Syria,” Miranda said, adding that Russian President Vladimir Putin wants to support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who is “fighting these terrorists.”

“The truth of the matter is that, of course, the CIA created ISIS,” the analyst said, using another acronym for the terrorist group.

“They are nothing more than a bunch of missionaries that are being supplied by the US and UK.  So the whole thing is a fake scenario. But for the US government now to say that Putin cannot help Syria, OK, while he has been helping Syria all along; but they are trying to put stop to that,” he stated.

The United States has reportedly intensified efforts to block Russian flights to Syria in order to prevent Moscow from what it describes as a Russian military buildup in the Arab country.

“We have encouraged our allies and partners to ask tough questions of Russia’s increased military deployments to Syria,” John Kirby, the US State Department spokesman, said on Tuesday.

Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since March 2011. According to reports, the United States and its regional allies - especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey - are supporting the militants operating inside the country.

According to the United Nations, more than 230,000 people have been killed and millions displaced due to the turmoil that has gripped Syria for over four years.

Miranda said that “now in America everyone understands that it’s not Assad who is the problem, it’s this group, that’s going rogue and terrorizing and killing people in Syria and Iraq; it’s called ISIS.”

“Not all Americans understand yet that ISIS is the creation of the CIA and it is being supplied by the UK and the USA, but more and more people are starting to understand that,” he added.

“So I don’t see how the US government can make any type of argument that, hey, Russia can’t help Assad when Assad is fighting ISIS and ISIS is supposed to be the threat,” the commentator wondered.
