So, If Al Qaeda became ISIS then why is Al Qaeda disavow any ties to ISIS?
"ISIS “is not a branch of the al-Qaeda group .&#8201;.&#8201;. does not have an organizational relationship with it and [al-Qaeda] is not the group responsible for their actions,” al-Qaeda’s General Command said in a statement, marking the first time the leadership has formally repudiated an affiliate.
Right whiners are dumber than sh*t.
At least we prove our claims with supporting documentation, instead of just empty words and flawed claims:

What are the origins of ISIS?

In 2006, al Qaeda in Iraq -- under the ruthless leadership of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi -- embarked on seemingly arbitrary and brutal treatment of civilians as it tried to ignite a sectarian war against the majority Shia community.

It came close to succeeding, especially after the bombing of the Al-Askariya Mosque, an important Shia shrine in Samarra, which sparked retaliatory attacks.

But the killing of al-Zarqawi by American forces, the vicious treatment of civilians and the emergence of the Sahwa (Awakening) Fronts under moderate Sunni tribal leaders nearly destroyed the group.

Nearly, but not quite.

When U.S. forces left Iraq, they took much of their intelligence-gathering expertise with them.

Iraqi officials began to speak of a "third generation" of al Qaeda in Iraq.

Two years ago, a former spokesman for the U.S. military in Iraq, Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan, warned that "if the Iraqi security forces are not able to put pressure on them, they could regenerate."

The capability of those Iraqi forces was fatally compromised by a lack of professional soldiers, the division of military units along sectarian lines and a lack of the equipment needed for fighting an insurgency, such as attack helicopters and reconnaissance capabilities.

The new al Qaeda was rebranded in 2006 as the Islamic State in Iraq (ISI). It would add "and Syria" to its name later

You're a slow learner aren't you pal__pay close attention__Al Qaeda is not monolithic. ISIS is not Al`Qaeda thus the terms offshoot and breakaway.

You can google all this stuff and keep from further embarrassing yourself.

<quoted text>He's doing the Hokey Pokey at present while the election drama unfolds in Baghdad. The Kurdish Peshmerga and loyalists are holding their own now due to the few US bombing and supply runs that have slowed ISIS progress. Like the Peshmerga, ISIS is spread very thin along Route 47.
The most recent advisory group likely includes various specialists that can assist the Kurds with intel, planning, and communications. It's been reported that Maliki government had not not been paying the Peshmerga as was outlined in the US withdrawal agreements__it would be a good idea for the US to settle that matter quickly.
It's also being reported that some of Iraq's Sunni citizens are harboring ISIS fighters in the Mosul area__that won't work.
People are dying while this all plays out exactly as it was forecast in 2003.
"People are dying while this all plays out exactly as it was forecast in 2003."

Seems Obama reluctantly but finally did admit the surge did, in fact, work in 2008 in an interview on the O'Reilly Factor.

Then took credit for the stabilization of Iraq and one of his crowning achievements, according to Biden.

So you are up to your eyeballs in gibberish. Obama is responsible for people dying and what is playing out in Iraq. No one else.

He can't own it and then want to give it back. At least not in the real world. But, in the liberal world, nothing makes sense. No wonder you're confused.

It's funny that you're ignorant enough to believe that anyone in the West knows anything about the inner workings of these groups. LOL
We've got guys in Gitmo that have been charged with nothing. Yet we continue to hold them, a recruiting dream for radicals.
I mean, ISIS just came around months ago and nobody had ever heard of them!! Suddenly, you nitwits have created an entire backstory.
Fact is, we know next to nothing about these groups or their shifting alliances.
Kinda like your sides serial lies about WMD's that have been repeated for years, even after Bush and Cheney both admitted there were no WMD's.
We've still got asshats here, like Carol and Nobraina,who keep bringing up the Syria lie.
You remain the ignorant fool you've always been, looking backwards to create a byline for events that you couldn't possibly understand.
Faxct remains, none of this happened when Saddam was in power.
Bush screwed the pooch, and we're all paying for it.
Let's see now....6 years later and all the spectacular Magic Negro Community Organizer failures have been blamed on bad weather, poor intelligence, Republicans and George Bush.

I fergit now....what did he blame the 58 States remark, the Shovel Ready Jobs lie, the list of failed Renewable Energy Handouts to political cronies and the Cash For Clunkers joke on?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHA......

BTW...what's *yer* excuse?

What is happening in the Middle East is exactly what was predicted, including Biden predicting that Iraq would splinter into three parts.
Which is exactly what has happened.
Correct. When the Negro began his Apology Tour, American Failure in the Middle East *was* predicted.

It is playing out as predicted.

The Negro is sending troops BACK into Iraq!

Well at least now we can see that you have nothing but childish talk, no facts, and pathetic ad hominem attacks.

I'll bet 75% of the looters don't even know why they're rioting. All they see is a reason to party, shit to be had and lives to be destroyed. Talk about shitting in your own bed....

Now it's payback time.
(He deliberately misled and lied about a lot of things. So Hillary's not alone. What's sad is so many former rational people believed him.)
The clock is ticking. Hillary knows that people still have memories of her standing alongside the Magic Negro lying about Benghazi and saying "What difference does it make?" to Congress.

She needs to distance herself fast from Dreams of My C*ckehound Marxist Father and make herself look American again.

THAT will be tough to do between now and 2016 but with the help of Charlie Rose and Team Propaganda, she might have a chance.
