“Look, ISIS got started through funding from our friends and allies…”
That’s a roundabout way of putting it–easier than coming right out and saying that we created ISIS. We’ve trained them. We’ve funded them. We now appear to be using them to pursue our own geopolitical interests in regions where they operate, and…ya know…somebody forgot to tell Wesley Clark not to say these things out loud.
Reminds me of the last time General Clark let something slip he shouldn’t have (and now refuses to address the fact that he made these statements): the infamous “7 countries in 5 years” admission.
