ISIS Colonel was Trained By Blackwater and U.S. State Department for 11 Years

(ANTIMEDIA) A former police commander from Tajikistan was featured in an ISIS video recently where he admitted he was trained by the U.S. State Department and former 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.”

What kind of extensive training spans 11 years and what did this person actually learn? Why and how did this person receive Russian training while simultaneously being deeply connected to the U.S.?

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.

  1. So what is your point? We trained people in many Muslim countries only to have them turn on us. This happens in every place where we think we can buy the natives loyalty. They are loyal to MONEY and nothing else. And then when we institute stupid policies against the people we trained, we are amazed that they turned on us. Thanks again Dumbya for your deluded policies in Iraq and everhwehre else, you moron.

  3. Yesterday the Obama administration released Abdul Shalabi from the Guantanamo Bay detainment center. Who is Abdul Shalabi? He was Osama bin Laden’s bodyguard as well as having been one of several bodyguards for Kalid Sheik Mohammed.

  9. I agree it's "designed to fail," just like the 911 report.

    Who specifically are the people who designed it to fail?

  14. Your tax dollars paid for Islamists to fight against the Russian aligned governments of Iran and Syria.
    When the big war comes, I'll take Russia, China and Iran – you can have Saudi Arabia, ISIS and Al Qaeda.
    Good luck.

  19. Ann Kelly What planes Ann? If you view the planes that hit the towers, they are different on every single different network that broadcasted them. And despite being the most guarded building in the world with 84 video cameras, there is not one video available of a plane hitting the Pentagon. So Ann, can you please tell me what planes you are referring too?

  20. They are also the world's largest private army, that is a fact, undeniable, and some of us have done our homework on Academi, but then you wouldn't be aware that they changed their name after allegedly being purchased by Monsanto would you?
