College students taught America created ISIS, war on terror worse than 9/11

ISIS was borne out of President George Bush’s decision to send troops to the Middle East after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, and in actuality the war on terror has caused more harm than 9/11, college students across Washington were taught recently.

The lesson came via scholar Phyllis Bennis, who gave a series of talks at three colleges in Washington titled “Understanding ISIS and the New Global War on Terror,” also the name of her latest book.

Terrorism is the response to all of the wars and occupations the U.S. and its allies have waged in the Middle East, Bennis told a room full of students at Seattle Pacific University on Feb. 2, one of three campus stops. She also spoke at Western Washington University and Evergreen State College last week on the same topic.

Echoing President Barack Obama, Bennis said terrorism is not an existential threat to America, that the real threat is “gun violence” at home, adding all bombing terrorists does is “create more terrorists.”

“The chickens have come home to roost,” she told students at Seattle Pacific, a private Christian campus, regarding the U.S. invasion of Iraq under President George W. Bush.

“ISIS didn’t start in 2011, ISIS began in 2004 at the height of the U.S. invasion and occupation [of Iraq],” Bennis said.

Those conditions set the stage for the current rise of ISIS and the civil war in Syria, the Saudi War in Yemen, and the devolution of Libya, she said.

When a member of the audience asked Bennis to clarify what she meant when she said terrorism wasn’t an existential threat to the U.S., she replied that although 9/11 was a horrific crime, it did not threaten America in the same way “9/12” did.
