Some interpretations of this question are highly opinion-based and can't be answered on this website (try Quora), but others can be factually answered.

  1. Are the leaders of ISIS Americans? No, it's run principally by Iraqis and Syrians, and has Muslim supporters from around the world. Wikipedia on sources of support
  2. Did American politicians meet with ISIS? No, such images were mislabeled; see this question.
  3. Did Obama claim to be training ISIS? No, this was a misstatement.
  4. Are there leaked documents, namely from Edward Snowden, that say that U.S. and Israel conspired to create ISIS? No, this is an online hoax.
  5. Did a 2012 United States government document claim that a Salafist state in Syria would be "exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime" and that the creation of such a state is a "possibility"? Yes.
  6. Did the CIA route funds and weapons through the Salafist Saudi Arabian government in 2013 to unspecified "rebels" in Syria? Yes.
  7. Were the "rebels" that the CIA was funding through Saudi back channels Salafist themselves, or was Saudi Arabia helping to bring moderate democracy to the Middle East? Was the US creating/funding ISIS? We have no knowledge of who the US was supporting at the time. We do know that the US government has been continuously bombing ISIS for several years now.
  8. Has the US government intended to "make chaos in the Arabic countries"? It was their open position in 2012-2014 that Assad's government needed to be toppled, but whether this constitutes a desire for "chaos," or if there are more sinister secret motives, is a matter of individual opinion.
