Frank Gardner is spreading the word about how Islamic State got started
“Islamic State has always been a bizarre fusion of ultra-conservative jihadists with former members of the late Iraqi President Saddam Hussein’s military and intelligence apparatus, known as Baathists.
The Baathists provided the weapons, the explosives, the intelligence and the planning – nobody knew Iraq better than them – while the jihadists brought the fanaticism and the volunteer suicide bombers.”
So is was nothing to do with America.
The question that has been hiding in the shadows for six years is,
where did the seed money come from?
