Another Trump Lie About ISIS
Trump stated that President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are the founders of ISIS.
This is another easily refuted lie.
Here's a report from 2007 on ISIL You may recall that George W. Bush was the POTUS in 2007:
ID cards of missing soldiers shown on insurgent Web sitePOSTED: 1647 GMT (0047 HKT), June 4, 2007
(CNN) -- A Sunni insurgent group on Monday posted video of the military identification cards of two missing American soldiers in Iraq. The video also carries an audio commentary in Arabic in which the speaker says, without providing any proof, "We decided to put an end to this matter and announce the death of the soldiers."
According to the commentary, the group made the move because the U.S. military did not heed its demand to end the search for the soldiers. CNN cannot independently verify the video, which was intercepted by terrorism expert Laura Mansfield.
The video is from the Islamic State of Iraq, an insurgent group that includes al Qaeda in Iraq.
The video included a still image of the photo identifications of Spc. Alex R. Jimenez , 25, of Lawrence, Massachusetts, and Pvt. Byron W. Fouty, 19, of Waterford, Michigan. (Watch how soldiers' ID cards ended up on Web site Video) Above the photos, written in Arabic, was the message, "Bush is the reason for the loss of your prisoners."
Again and again and again Trump shows the American people that he has no grasp of facts and that he resorts to lies and b.s. to distract from his imploding campaign.
The above report is from 2007, and it clearly states that the "Islamic State in Iraq" was already operative. ISI has changed names -- ISIS, ISIL, but it is the same group that was operating in Iraq during GWB's disastrous war.
