Two important American history books: "1776" and "Overthrow"
"Since independence in 1776, the U.S. has been engaged in over 53 military invasions and expeditions.... America is using ISIS in three ways: to attack its enemies in the Middle East, to serve as a pretext for U.S. military intervention abroad, and at home to foment a manufactured domestic threat, used to justify the unprecedented expansion of invasive domestic surveillance." http://www.globalresearch.ca/america-created-al-qaeda-and-the-isis-terror-group/5402881
In addition, America has also continually missed its many chances to follow the example of our heroic 1776 ancestors and help overthrow a lot of tyrannical despots across the globe too -- such as Saudi Arabia, where the 9-11 plot was actually hatched, or Israel, where the 9-11 plot was cheered on. Instead, America has made these tyrants and despots some of their closest allies. What's with that? http://www.france24.com/en/20160415-obama-faces-pressure-saudi-arabia-trip-secret-28-pages
And in France these days, liberty, equality and fraternity are only remembrances of things past as well. Lafayette, they are no longer in France either. It's all about Le Patriot Act. http://en.shafaqna.com/news/32043
