Donald Trump has been under fire for the past week for his comments that “Barack Obama is the founder of ISIS.” Because they’re idiots, the media took Trump’s statement literally, and “corrected” him by pointing out what everyone already knows, that the terror group was founded by Abu Bakr-al-Baghdadi.
What Trump had actually meant was that Barack Obama’s foreign policy had created an environment that fostered the rise of groups like ISIS – primarily by pulling U.S. troops out of Iraq.
It’s not just Donald Trump saying this… the leader of another terrorist group, Hezbollah, agrees too.
Donald Trump has found at least one person who agrees with his allegation that the U.S. administration founded the Islamic State group.
The leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah group quoted Trump at a rally in the country’s south Saturday, saying the presidential candidate’s statements were based on facts.
Hassan Nasrallah says: “this is an American presidential candidate who is saying this. What he says is based on facts and documents.”
Nasrallah, who has sent thousands of his fighters to Syria to shore up President Bashar Assad’s forces, has long claimed that the U.S. helped create and fuel the rise of Islamic extremists to destabilize the Middle East.
Speaking on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the end of the Second Lebanon War, Nasrallah also said Israel wasn’t carrying out attacks in Lebanon because it was deterred in the 2006 conflict, which he claimed ended in a victory for the Shi’ite militia.
One of Hezbollah’s main achievements in the war, Nasrallah added, was the Israeli public’s distrust of the military. Even 10 years later, he said, Israel has been unable to restore confidence in the military, adding that while in 2006 Lebanese feared an Israeli invasion, today Israelis fear an invasion by Hezbollah.
Did anyone really think it was a coincidence that ISIS began conquering the Middle East the second we reduced our military presence there? Of course not.
