Top ISIS commander – “star pupil” of US special forces training


Sporting a recognizable red beard and happy to pose for photos, Shishani has acted as a very public face for some of ISIS’ most notorious successes.

It was Shishani who posed with the stolen US Humvees that ISIS had seized from Mosul and brought back into Syria.

And it was Shishani who had led successful ISIS military campaigns throughout Syria as well as a blitz through western Iraq that put the group within 100 miles of Baghdad.

These military successes are not simply the result of any innate military capabilities. Instead, Shishani spent years conducting military campaigns against the Russians, first as a Chechen rebel and then as a soldier in the Georgian military. During Shishani’s four years in the military, from 2006 to 2010, his unit received some degree of training from American special forces units.

“He was a perfect soldier from his first days, and everyone knew he was a star,” an unnamed former comrade who is still active in the Georgian military told McClatchy DC. “We were well trained by American special forces units, and he was the star pupil.”

“We trained him well, and we had lots of help from America,” another anonymous Georgian defense official told McClatchy about Shishani. “In fact, the only reason he didn’t go to Iraq to fight alongside America was that we needed his skills here in Georgia.”

Who needs more proof that the U.S. assembles, arms and trains ISIS from start to finish?
ISIS is just another face of US hegemony.


  1. This ex-marine points out how the so-called ‘War on Terror’ is nothing more than a well-planned strategy to be in a “perpetual state of war to destabilize the region for the Greater Israel plan. Also known as the Yinon plan will split Syria, Iraq and Iran into three pieces each.

  2. When you capture any military equipment at war from your enemy you cannot say it has been stolen, and if they are another face of US hegemony, then they haven’t stolen these Humvees, they were given to them!!!


  3. If some average Joe hired a group of killers he’d, upon discovery, spend the rest of his life in jail. If you’re a billionaire Saudi or Qatari, US military or whoever directs this deception the coast is clear. The situation is deeply disturbing and unacceptable, especially when considering the horrifying and saddening results.
