Hacked Pelosi Memo: Obama helped create ISIS



Memos obtained by hacker Guccifer 2.0 from former House minority leader Nancy Pelosi’s computer appear to suggest Obama administration policies did indeed lead to the rise of ISIS, as pointed out by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. “In short: Our [2003] invasion created the atmosphere for a Jordanian to start a Muslim sectarian war, which ultimately created ISIS,” the October 2014 memo from Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee policy director Mike Ryan states.

The leaked memo reveals the state of affairs “worsened after U.S. troops left Iraq, helping quickly deteriorate the situation further” and give way to the rise of ISIS. While the events discussed in the memo took place during the George W. Bush administration, Obama’s policies in withdrawing US forces exacerbated the conditions under which ISIS was mestastisizing.
