Lt. General Michael Flynn, the former head of the United States Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), has openly stated that during his tenure and since 2011 the U.S. has been supporting ISIS and other radical Islamic groups.

Lt. General Michael Flynn is qualified to know what has been happening from the inside.  General Flynn is a highly decorated, career military officer who has served in many high-level posts including:

  • The Director of the U.S. Intelligence Agency
  • The Director of Intelligence for Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), the main military agency responsible for targeting Al-Qaeda and other Islamic terrorists
  • The Commander of the Joint Functional Component Command for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance
  • The Chair of the Military Intelligence Board
  • Assistant Director of National Intelligence

Please see video of interview below.  Here is the dialog which took place:

Interviewer: In 2012, your agency (DIA) was saying quote, ” the Salafists, Muslim Brotherhood, and Al Qaeda in Iraq  are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria.  And in 2012, your agency was helping coordinate arms transfers to these same groups.  Why did you not stop that if you were worried about “Islamic Extremists”?

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (nodding in agreement):  My job was to ensure that the accuracy of our intelligence that was being presented was as good as it could be.  And I will tell you it goes before 2012, when we were in Iraq in 2011.

Interviewer:  You are basically saying that even in government at the time, you knew those groups were around, you saw the analysis and you were arguing against it, but who wasn’t listening?

Lt. Gen. Flynn:  I think the Administration (Obama administration).

Interviewer:  So, the Administration turned a blind eye to your analysis.

Lt. Gen. Flynn:  I don’t know if they turned a blind eye. I think it was a decision.  It was a willful decision.

Interviewer:  A willful decision to support an insurgency that had Salafists, Muslim Brotherhood, and Al Qaeda?

Lt. Gen. Flynn:  A willful decision to do what they are doing.



Of course Lt. General Flynn was not telling us anything we shouldn’t already know.

To those who pay attention to what is happening in the world around them, or who observe REALITY; it has been clear that the U.S. has been supporting the organization (ISIS) which has been devastating nations around the world with extreme violence including beheadings and the slaughter of Christians and Muslims.

As reported at Washington’s Blog in May 2015, the United States government released documents to Judicial Watch which show that the West helped create ISIS and has long supported the growth of ISIS.   The documents were written by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (headed by Lt. Gen. Flynn at the time) on August 12, 2012 … years before ISIS burst onto the world stage.  Excerpts from the declassified documents:


To summarize the source documents:

There is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist Principality in eastern Syria and this is exactly what the supporting powers (The West, Gulf Countries, and Turkey) of the Syrian opposition (Al Qaeda, ISIS) want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime ….

In other words, the powers supporting the Syrian opposition – the West (U.S., Britain, etc.), our Gulf allies (Saudi Arabia, etc.), and Turkey wanted an Islamic caliphate in order to challenge Syrian president Assad.


Think about all the horrific violence ISIS has committed against innocent people throughout the Middle East, Africa, and Europe.  Then, get your mind around the FACT that the United States of America supported the creation of ISIS and has provided WEAPONS and FUNDING to this organization to aid them in their terrorizing.


The United States government has been hijacked by people who believe in the philosophy of world government and is being used to arm terrorists around the world for the purpose of destabilizing uncooperative Nations and consolidating power into the hands of a world government authority.
