In light of the accusations leveled by Senator Rand Paul against fellow Republicans, we thought we should correct him by listing the real culprits who helped create and forge ISIS by ignoring the Assad violence in Syria.

We call them the ignorant seven ISIS founders in the Obama Administration.

ISIS terrorizing the minorities in the Middle East and planting terrorists on American soil is the result of one ignorant Syria policy that saw the ascent of terrorism to new heights and increased threat levels to America and its interests.

We can blame Baschar al-Assad who freed ISIS Islamists from his jails and who bought oil from ISIS to fund their operations. We can also blame Iranian and Hezbollah terror against Syrian civilians, which drove ISIS to recruit sucessfully thousands of fighters from some 80 countries from around the world.

But no one is more to blame than Barack Obama and his administration who could have nipped ISIS in the bud had Obama acted with courage and conviction. If Obama had armed the Syrian moderate opposition instead of belittling them, ISIS would not exist today.

If Obama had supported the anti-Assad moderates who began defecting in September of 2011, ISIS would have never been born.

Because Obama sets his core foreign policy goals in the East Wing of the White House, and implements them with help from the staff in the West Wing, his Secretary of State mostly plays the role of a “concierge” carrying messages, initiatives, and orders.

This is why John Kerry did not make the list of the ignorant seven ISIS founders.

******

At TFS, we assembled a list of the ignorant seven ISIS founders in the Obama Administration we believe they are as culprit as Assad was in forging and creating ISIS.

 

Barack Obama ISIS Founder No. 1
Barack Obama ISIS Founder No. 1
Barack Obama
The U.S. President has singlehandedly permitted ISIS to grow and prosper by ignoring the Assad atrocities, and by not helping the liberal-minded Free Syrian Army who began defecting in the fall of 2011. No words can describe his irresponsible behavior, which have led to heightened terror across the whole region. ISIS terror has already tried to strike us here at home. By far, the worst U.S. President ever when it comes to the conduct of a potent U.S. foreign policy.
Barack Obama
ISIS Founder No. 1
Denis McDonough ISIS Founder No. 2
Denis McDonough ISIS Founder No. 2
Denis McDonough
Not only he is second on the list of the ignorant seven who drove ISIS to become such a threat, but he is the number one enemy of the Syrian people for constantly advising the U.S. President not to interfere in Syria, help its people protect themselves from chemical attacks, or build a no-fly zone to aid civilians. Denis McDonough is as responsible as Assad is in the death of 300,000 Syrians. History will not be kind to this heartless and ignorant man.
Denis McDonough
ISIS Founder No. 2
Gen. Martin Dempsey ISIS Founder No. 3
Gen. Martin Dempsey ISIS Founder No. 3
Gen. Martin Dempsey
In 2011, when Gen. Dempsey was asked to propose what it would take to establish a no-fly zone in Syria, he provided an inflated number of 70,000 U.S. troops because he did not want the U.S. to help Syrians protect themselves from the Assad atrocities. This gave rise to ISIS. To this day, he still opposes assisting the Syrian moderate opposition or intervene in Syria. He will go down in history as the worst JCS because under his watch terror increased exponentially.
Gen. Martin Dempsey
ISIS Founder No. 3
Ben Rhodes ISIS Founder No. 4
Ben Rhodes ISIS Founder No. 4
Ben Rhodes
At the age of 37, Ben Rhodes is way over his head setting policy in the turbulent Middle East region. What is a Masters degree holder in "short stories" doing running one of the most complex jobs in the world in the most troubled regions of the world? After almost seven years of disasters, Ben Rhodes has learned nothing from his mistakes because he keeps tweaking the same fallacies hoping for better results. ISIS filled the vacuum he created with his shortsightedness and foolishness.
Ben Rhodes
ISIS Founder No. 4
Susan Rice ISIS Founder No. 5
Susan Rice ISIS Founder No. 5
Susan Rice
Ambassador Susan Rice does not have enough experience in foreign policy to understand her limitations. She is there to support Barack Obama not to question his judgment, which makes her as responsible as Obama is in the rise of ISIS and terror in general. Of all the other advisers, Rice is the least capable and the least smart.
Susan Rice
ISIS Founder No. 5
Valerie Jarrett ISIS Founder No. 6
Valerie Jarrett ISIS Founder No. 6
Valerie Jarrett
Although you rarely see Valerie Jarrett in the situation room setting policy (She sets policy secretly in the East Wing), she is the main architect behind Obama's detente with Iran. Syria, as far as she is concerned, stands in the way when it comes to Obama's US-Iran deal. Therefore, neglecting Syria and the problems her neglect has caused have led us to the rise of terror and ISIS.
Valerie Jarrett
ISIS Founder No. 6
Joe Biden ISIS Founder No. 7
Joe Biden ISIS Founder No. 7
Joe Biden
Vice President Joe Biden goes along to go along. When it comes to Syria, he has been amiss in advising Barack Obama about the pitfalls of his policy. His absence is irresponsible. His absence makes him another ISIS founder because of his blind support of Obama's detrimental policies. Compare the affable Joe Biden to Dick Cheney who did not shy away from pressing other cabinet members and WH staff if they went astray. VP Biden is almost useless.
Joe Biden
ISIS Founder No. 7

 

Conversely, there were cabinet members, policy makers officials, and Senators who tried hard to warn the president about the bad results his Syrian policy would yield. Had they succeeded, we would not be writing about the ignorant seven ISIS founders.

Accolades to all those who worked in the Obama Administration, the Senate, or the U.S. State Department who saw ISIS coming and tried to override the ignorant seven ISIS founders above.

They all pressed The White House to act decisively in 2012 to arm the moderate Syrian opposition to stop the Assad genocide. In the case of Senators McCain and Graham, their constant advice to change course was ignored at every turn.

At every turn, the ill-equipped Denis McDonough was able to block their influence and drive the Syrian policy towards the disastrous outcome we see today with over 300,000 people dead and millions of refugees.

The accolades go to:

  • Ambassador Samantha Power
  • Senator John McCain
  • Senator Lindsey Graham
  • Secretary Leon Panetta
  • Secretary Hillary Clinton
  • General David Petraeus
  • Ambassador Robert Ford.

At least history will prove them right.

    If you don’t wish to assemble such a one sided view, why don’t you include George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Bremer for the de-Baathification and general lack of a post battle plan that left a vacuum in Iraq? This was the Genesis of the fertile soil from which ISIS grew. I agree with the general and noble goals of Terror Free Syria to be against all oppressive groups, but your completely partisan one sided approach undermines credibility and a clear view. Unfortunately there is a plenty of blame to go around on both sides of the aisle (including many of Obama’s policies).

      We fight all terror, but some before the others. We believe that Iran and the Assad regime with their UN seats are far more dangerous than any Sunni terror group everyone can strike without referring to any UN Resolutions. Iran and Assad hide behind legitimate governments, ISIS cannot. This makes Iran a bigger terror threat than ISIS.
      Furthermore, ISIS in Syria, which did not exist during George Bush, grew out of the non-interventionist policies of Barack Obama. He called them JV team when he should have intervened to stop the terrors of both Assad and ISIS. If rag tag rebels with no sophisticated weapons almost won the war against Assad, it would have taken the US less than 3 days to do away with the Assad regime, which would have nipped ISIS at the bud. As far as who comes next, the international community could stop any extremist group from ascending to power if it had the will. Unfortunately, both the will and the leadership are missing with Obama at the White House. This is why the region is on fire.
