Since the WikiLeaks, so many supposedly secret – and quite frankly disturbing – things have been made known to the general public.
Now, one leaked telegram sent from Damascus by US Ambassador William Roebuck could be one of the most worrying yet, with said document appearing to show US plans for Syria.
The document shows the plans to destabilize Syria back in 2006, which is obviously a good few years before their conflict with them in 2011.
Given the USA have never been the most vocal supporters of the regime or President Bashar al-Assad, it probably doesn’t shock too many people, with Syria being listed as a ‘state sponsor of terrorism’ since 1979.
However, the really intriguing thing from the leaked documents is that certain parts of it appear to show that the US government did in fact have links with Daesh – or as we known them, ISIS.
The US government has long been accused of creating ISIS to overthrow the regime in Syria, and now, while the documents do not confirm that, they do lend support for some of the conspiracy theories.
One of the most telling strategies was the capitalising on ‘Sunni fears of Iranian influence’, which is a description that fits the militants who formed ISIS.
They also planed to use the media and propaganda to cause ‘Bashar personal angst that may lead him to act irrationally’.
