Actually ISIS traces farther back.... To Libya. Remember Libya? We turned it into an ashtray. A failed state like Somalia... but with modern oil infrastructure.
The group's official name was the LIFG. The US State Department and CIA hired them to sodomize Muammar al-Gadaffi with a bayonet and provided Special Operators and NATO air strike to assist in that goal. THEN they began looting weapons from Libya's armories and taking them to Syria, as the DIA watched and wrote un-acted-on memos => <http://auntieimperial.tumblr.com/post/119961712749>.
THEN they ran into all the Iraq baathists who had fled Iraq to Syria. THEN we see the inception of what was initially known as ISIS. I seriously doubt the Baathists are still involved though.
As to Why The US Wanted Muammar al-Gadaffi Dead...
The War On Libya Is A War On Most Of Africa
PS. You might also note that just about the time they were killing Christopher West, West Point was releasing a study saying the LIFG-affilated areas of Libya supplied the fighters in Iraq most likely to be killing US troops. http://auntieimperial.blogspot.com/2011/09/west-point-study-libyan-rebels-are-also.html
