Mommy, where do “the terrorists” come from? (From our allies, dear…)

Who is responsible for the vast majority of the world’s Wahhabist/Salafist, globalized “Islamic” terrorism?

Here’s a good primer for those willing to do a little reading:

According to a leaked State Department memo sent by Sec. Hillary Clinton herself, the answer is crystal clear: It’s Washington’s despotic Gulf allies, especially Saudi Arabia and Qatar (but also UAE, Kuwait, and others): http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/06/world/middleeast/06wikileaks-financing.html

Here’s another noteworthy recent story from The Grey Lady, concerning what those terrorists have been up to with chemical weapons, using them “at least 52 times” in Syria and Iraq: https://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/21/world/middleeast/isis-chemical-weapons-syria-iraq-mosul.html?_r=0

And here are two indispensable and truly stunning pieces by Pulitzer winning journalist, Seymour Hersh (illuminating the fact that many of these terrorists are actually part of a second, CIA-coordinated Mujaheddin): http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2007/03/05/the-redirection

And https://www.lrb.co.uk/v36/n08/seymour-m-hersh/the-red-line-and-the-rat-line

Shameless self-promoter that I am, I’ll also recommend my own stupendous primer on the origins of the conflict in Syria and my recent, very special, blog quoting a bona fide neocon to demonstrate that Washington has, in fact, been “subcontracting foreign policy to Gulf countries” over the last several years… with catastrophic results for millions of Arab and Muslim civilians.
