In this Free21 radio interview, the Swiss historian and controversial author, Dr. Daniele Ganser claims that USA supports terrorist organizations with money, food and weapons. He claims that the USA does this so that the Syria opposition gains power from US support in their conflict with the current Russia-friendly leadership. He also references unnamed Iranian newspapers stating US Army performs weapon drops for IS.

The hosts of the interview, Free21 claim to be a independent journalistic platform, but reading their other articles, in my opinion, stretch their interpretations too far from the sourced facts, so this does not support its credibility.

But it wouldn't be the first time of the CIA using such methods (including assassinating anti-USA leaders), so it would not be completely implausible.

So: Does/Did the USA support terrorist organization like IS/ISIS or Al-Qaeda with weapons/money?

    @Sklivvz The question says "Does/Did", so it is not limited to what it is doing now, but the answer can also only reference former actions and not only CIA but any USA organizationor the USA themself. In my question I already included an unsourced maybe leaked official document supporting parts of the claim. As I am not that familiar with such documents, I dont fully understand it nor can I say anything about its authenticity. The question could be simply answered by such a document if its authenticity is credible and it states that the USA supported a terror organization with weapons/money. – skeptic75 Aug 23 '15 at 16:08

    Also I saw some interesting comments last night which were deleted today which looked like the beginning of an answer. – skeptic75 Aug 23 '15 at 16:18

    In the meantime I found out about the CIAs role in Operation Gladio and similar 3 decades ago in other European countries where they founded terrorist organisations and paid/trained them and used them for terror attacks against civil population in false flag operations to prevent pro russian parties from gaining political power in Europe. But I am interested in the named ones or when similar ones at least after the USA started the war on terror. – skeptic75 Sep 7 '15 at 9:24
