2012 memo documenting the rise and threat if ISIS.
"The memo specifically names Ramadi and Mosul as among the first Iraqi cities to potentially fall victim to what it calls “unifying the jihad” under the banner of an Islamic State. The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) would capture Mosul in June 2014, and in a seemingly unprecedented blitz across Anbar, seize Ramadi on Sunday, May 17, 2015. Ironically, the intelligence report itself would hit public view in heavily redacted form on Monday, May 18, 2015 – just as the world was receiving news of the fall of Ramadi. "

CIA bigwig in family of supposed Boston Marathon bombers.
"Ruslan Tsarnaev, the outspoken uncle of the brothers was married to Samantha A. Fuller until 2004.

He is also involved in creating a global jihad network, presumably acting on behalf of CIA interests."

War radicalizes victims and those who identify with them.
"In 2001 the American empire moved in and, according to Brown University’s Watson Institute, almost 100,000 Afghani civilians have been killed, mostly by US bombs.
Being bombed is very emotional to those on the receiving end. As humans under attack, you’re naturally motivated to retaliate. When I ventured across Vietnam and Laos, survivors of US bombing raids told me of their fellow villagers who, back in the 1960’s, did not know anything about a country named America or the war beyond their hills. But these illiterate peasants were instantly radicalized and committed to patriot resistance upon their very first sighting of US warplanes dropping bombs on their homes and families.
Look what happened in the wake of the 9-11 attack upon the World Trade Center: thousands of American men and women were radicalized – moved by murder from the air – after viewing images of their homeland under attack. We Americans honor their reaction as “patriotism.”
Americans will always remember 9-11, but curiously, we don’t expect other people to react in a similar, visceral, patriotic way when their homelands are bombed."
Well said.
"Lying near dead people, wondering if she was about to die, Ms. Carter understood Omar’s real motive. She said, “The motive was very clear to us who are laying in our own blood and other people’s blood, who are injured, who were shot. Everybody who was in that bathroom who survived could hear him talking to 911, saying the reason why he’s doing this is because he wanted America to stop bombing his country.”"
We should all want that.
