CIA Director John Brennan is attempting to stoke the flames of fear among Americans by declaring that Daesh (ISIL) would definitely carry out terrorist attacks inside the US, says American writer and political analyst Mickey Z.
In a phone interview with Press TV on Tuesday, the author of Occupy This Book and Occupy These Photos called Brennan a professional liar.
“Brennan recently told CBS's 60 Minutes that it was ‘inevitable’ ISIS would attempt to carry out attacks on the United States,” Mickey Z. said.
‘I believe that their attempts are inevitable,’ he declared. ‘I don't think their successes necessarily are.’ Then the CIA chief boasted how ISIS has ‘been stopped and arrested and detained and debriefed because of very, very good intelligence,’” he added.
“Finally, he wrapped up by telling us that the attacks in Paris could’ve been stopped if not for terrorists being able ‘to take advantage of the newly available means of communication that are walled off from law enforcement officials.’ He was referring to encryption,” he stated.
“What’s actually ‘inevitable’ here is that the nation’s top spy - a professional liar - would stoke the flames of fear by evoking the name of our latest Public Enemy Number 1, ISIS, before telling blatant lies about hush-hush plots that were foiled by ‘brave’ American heroes who would be able to do so much more if only the liberals running the big bad government would get out of the way,” the analyst noted.
“The ‘inevitable’ outcome of such carefully crafted propaganda is a presidential year in which candidates - from Trump to Sanders - cry out in unison about the beat-down they’d put on ISIS while little or nothing is said or done about a dominant human culture hurtling towards social, economic, and environmental collapse,” the activist concluded.
Daesh terrorists, who were initially trained by the CIA in Jordan in 2012 to destabilize the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, now control large parts of Syria and Iraq. They have been engaged in crimes against humanity in the areas under their control.
The United States and its allies have been conducting airstrikes against Daesh in Iraq and Syria since last year. Observers say while the US and its allies claim they are fighting against terrorist groups like ISIL, they in fact helped create and train those organizations to affect their policies in the Middle East.
