People, I am unconvinced that the United States federal government, the deep state: CIA, National Security Council, has ever actually opposed terrorism. They claimed to be against terrorism post 2001, for obvious reasons, but the preponderance of evidence is that the US foreign policy has been for terrorism for a hell of a lot longer than it has pretended to be against it.
They have aided and abetted terrorists in Libya, Syria, iraq, Ukraine, and now Yemen, and that’s just since Obama took over the alleged “Global War on Terror.” (TM)
What horrified me in the 1980s was the US support for terror states like El Salvador and Guatemala. Actually terror was a US strong suit in Viet Nam and wherever the US sent its hallowed, holy “troops.” They simply don’t call it “terror.” They call it something else, and they have lexicons of euphemisms to dupe the moronic, apathetic public into accepting grotesque horrors worthy of the Nazis.
