US supplying weapons to ISIS in Afghanistan: Karzai

Former Afghan president Hamid Karzai has said that the United States has links with terrorist ‘Islamic State’, also known as Daesh.Karzai, who ruled the war-torn country with the help of US coalition for almost a decade, told Voice of America (VOA) that he considers “Daesh a tool of US”.
     “After it (the US) dropped the [mother of all] bomb on Afghanistan, it did not eliminate Daesh.”
     Karzai revealed that the terrorist group has been supplied weapons by the United States forces. “The US army helicopters and army bases are being used to provide assistance to ISIS terrorists,” he said while echoing Russian claims of American support to the ISIS terrorists.
     “I do not differentiate at all between Daesh and America,” the ex-president said while dismissing criticism of Moscow’s ties with the Taliban.
     He emphasised that work need to be done to control extremism.
     Reports of American assistance to the terrorists are coming from all over the country, Karzai said while stressing that the US government must answer the questions of Afghan people.
     Earlier, in an interview with Russia Today in London, Karzai said Daesh has emerged in Afghanistan in the past three to four years under the watch of US military and intelligence agencies.
     Karzai said he has more than suspicions that US bases in Afghanistan are used to aid Daesh. “I get daily reports from the Afghan people that unmarked military helicopters supply Daesh in many parts of Afghanistan,” he claimed.
     Karzai said from 9/11 until today, there is more extremism in Afghanistan, despite spending billions of dollars. He stated the Afghan people ask if the US came to Afghanistan to defeat extremism, "why do we have more of it today".
