Disinfo: Daesh was created and trained by the US

Summary

Daesh was created and trained by the US.

Disproof

Often repeated disinformation. In 2014 the US created the Global Coalition to counter Daesh bit.ly/1ziAxlq, . Western military action in Syria and Iraq has clearly targeted Daesh. Western support for the Syrian opposition's success in retaking Dabiq represented a major defeat for Daesh.

The 9/11 terror attacks in the US were organised by US intelligence agencies

The 9/11 terror attacks in the US were in fact organised by US intelligence agencies.

Disproof

This is a conspiracy theory, presented without any evidence-

It relays a recurring narrative that suggests US government involvement in the 9/11 attacks; an unfounded claim that has been extensively refuted. In this case, baseless speculation adds a new layer to the conspiracy, with claims that US authorities may have somehow 'dealt' with people who intended to expose evidence of such involvement.
