I post this for reason of the amazing fact of Military.Com News, which is followed by the troops of all services, posting this piece claiming ISIS was created by the CIA when the source is Iran's propaganda media arm...PRESS TV.

It could be that it is true that the CIA is the original cause of ISIS and that that is why General Allen has been unable to make progress as the CIA is frustrating the war on ISIS that Gen. Allen was trying to conduct. Now it would be against national security rules for the military to make public the fact if it is true that the CIA have an agenda in creating and using Islamic radical operative within ISIS, but it is fair game to cover the story if it is already published in the public domain. Iow, I think the military are angry with Obama and the CIA for the embarrassing treatment the US military are getting at the hands of the politicians and msm, and are letting the troops and know where the blame really lies...

(..and btw, note too that Military.Com have ironically made clear the Press TV © Copyright on the article....iow in ya face... )


'Frustrated' Allen Stepping Down as ISIS Czar Over Lack of Resources

Press TV (Iran) | Sep 23, 2015

Retired Marine Gen. John R. Allen, the Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL, will leave his position in early November, four U.S. State Department officials told Bloomberg on condition of anonymity.

According to the officials, who were not prepared to publicly announce Allen's departure, he has already let his superiors know he will step down.

Allen's chief of staff, Karin von Hippel, will also quit to join a British think tank.

Last month, the incoming Marine Corps commandant, Lt. Gen. Robert Neller, testified that the situation of the U.S. fight was at a "stalemate" and the program to train militants there had yielded not more than four or five fighters.

"John Allen has put his heart and soul into trying to make the president's strategy work," said Derek Harvey, a former senior military intelligence official who worked with Allen at U.S. Central Command. "I have sympathy for the hard task he was given because I do not believe the president's team was fully on board and he was never empowered to bring the leadership necessary to achieve the mission."

Initially trained by the CIA in Jordan in 2012, the Takfiri militants have been carrying out horrific acts of violence, including public decapitations and crucifixions in areas under their control in Iraq, Syria and more recently Libya.
