Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov believes the mysterious leader of the self-proclaimed Islamic State and former Camp Bucca inmate Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is a CIA operative.
“Baghdadi should take off his mask and declare loudly and clearly that he is a CIA agent, that he has been recruited,” Kadyrov said. “They (the Islamic State) are Shaitans (devils) and their sole obsession is to grab as much money as they can lay hands on. They are acting on orders from the West and deliberately exterminating Muslims.”
“He must openly confess that he is killing his brothers in faith, to apologize to his coreligionists and to disband his gang,” Kadyrov said.
Kadyrov has a checkered past and stands accused of corruption and human rights violations. He has cooperated with Russia’s FSB state security service since the Second Chechen War in 1999 when he led the Kadyrovite militia. His father, former Chechen President Akhmad Kadyrov, launched a jihad against Russia. He was assassinated in 2004.
Earlier this year Nabil Na’eem, the founder of the Islamic Democratic Jihad Party and former top al-Qaeda commander, told the Beirut-based pan-Arab TV station al-Maydeen all current al-Qaeda affiliates, including ISIS, work for the CIA.
Na’eem had earlier denounced the al-Qaeda spin-off al-Nusra as a product of Western intelligence.“I personally believe that the leader of the Nusra Army (Mohammed al-Jawlani), who declared his support for Ayman Al Zawahiri, is a CIA operative,” he said.
“Key members of ISIS it now emerges were trained by US CIA and Special Forces command at a secret camp in Jordan in 2012, according to informed Jordanian officials,” William Engdahl wrote in June. “The US, Turkish and Jordanian intelligence were running a training base for the Syrian rebels in the Jordanian town of Safawi in the country’s northern desert region, conveniently near the borders to both Syria and Iraq. Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the two Gulf monarchies most involved in funding the war against Syria’s Assad, financed the Jordan ISIS training.”
In September, The New York Times ran an article quoting Bahaa al-Araji, the Iraqi deputy prime minister, who claimed the CIA was responsible for the creation of the Islamic State. “We know about who made Daesh,” al-Araji said. Daesh is an Arabic variant for the Islamic State.
“It is obvious to everyone that the Islamic State is a creation of the United States and Israel,” Omar al-Jabouri, a Sunni Muslim from Baghdad, told the newspaper.
The corporate media in the United States has attempted to counter evidence the Islamic State, formerly ISIS, is an intelligence asset.
