Leaked Hillary Clinton emails show U.S. allies Saudi Arabia and Qatar supported ISIS

Leaked Hillary Clinton emails show U.S. allies Saudi Arabia and Qatar supported ISIS --Emails released by WikiLeaks add to the growing body of evidence that [US-backed] Gulf regimes have backed the Islamic State | 11 Oct 2016 | A recently leaked 2014 email from Hillary Clinton acknowledges, citing Western intelligence sources, that the U.S.-backed regimes in Saudi Arabia and Qatar have supported ISIS [I-CIA-SIS]. "We need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments [regimes] of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region," the document states. This adds to a growing body of evidence that theocratic Gulf monarchies have helped fuel the surge of extremist groups throughout the Middle East. Another newly released email, from January 2016, includes an excerpt from a private October 2013 speech in which Clinton acknowledged that "the Saudis have exported more extreme ideology than any other place on earth over the course of the last 30 years."
