ISIS Colonel was Trained By Blackwater and U.S. State Department for 11 Years
By Cassius Methyl
military contractor Blackwater all the way up until last year.
At a Blackwater facility in North Carolina, Col. Gulmurod Khalimov received "counter-terrorism training."
"From 2003-2014 Colonel Khalimov participated in five counterterrorism training courses in the United States and in Tajikistan, through the Department of State's Diplomatic Security/Anti-Terrorism Assistance program," said US State Department spokeswoman Pooja Jhunjhunwala.
According to CNN's fearmongering report, "The program is intended to train candidates from participating countries in the latest counterterrorism tactics, so they can fight the very kind of militants that Khalimov has now joined."
In the video he spoke in Russian, giving a speech perfect for a mainstream media report: "Listen, you American pigs, I've been to America three times. I saw how you train soldiers to kill Muslims…we will come to your homes and we will kill you."
Man Who Joined The ISLAMIC STATE Trained In
The U.S. (The Case Of Col Gulmurod Khalimov)
If you need more proof that the U.S. government doesn't have a strategy to deal with ISIS, here it is. It doesn't get much more blatant than this. The group has captured billions of dollars in American-supplied military equipment, is expanding its territory despite the Western world bombing it, and recently leaked documents prove the U.S. predicted — even encouraged — the creation of ISIS. All the while, U.S. trained fighters continue to join the ranks of the 'Islamic State,' using weapons that American taxpayers paid for, against other forces equipped with U.S. financed military equipment. Seems legit.
