I think he was too kind, too circumspect and less than willing to mention the other elephant in the room, but essentially Mr Putin of Russia tells us who exactly created ISIS.
From journalist Patrick Foy:
Who created ISIS? U.S. foreign policy. It's obvious. Who has controlled U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East for decades? What is the motivation for Washington to act repeatedly against American interests, European interests, and those of humanity at large? Are American politicians and officials really that stupid? Putin does not go there. It is up to Americans to go there. That is not Putin's job. Russia is a friend, not the enemy
