Most of ISIL recruited by U.S., says Analyst – PressTV
Most of the ISIL terrorists were recruited by the United States and its allies in order to further their agenda in the Middle East, an antiwar activist and political commentator in Canada says.
Ken Stone, a member of the Hamilton Coalition to Stop the War, made the remarks on Sunday during an interview with Press TV while commenting on a report which says the US State Department sponsored the training of an ISIL militant on American soil.
Officials told CNN on Saturday that Colonel Gulmurod Khalimov, a former head of Tajikistan’s special forces, took part in counterterrorism courses as part of a program sponsored by the State Department.
“The fact that Colonel Gulmurod Khalimov, former head of Tajikistan’s special forces, turned over to ISIL is not surprising. Most of the terrorist mercenaries who are at the core of the ISIL today in Iraq and Syria have been recruited by the United States of America and its allies,” Stone said.
