The US Central Intelligence Agency has created and funded Boko Haram, a Takfiri group that abducted about 300 Nigerian girls last month, says American analyst Randy Short.

Boko Haram “is a CIA-created and funded group,” Short said, adding the group’s “weapons come from Libya. We know that the commander of the so-called Libyan revolutionary forces, Mr. (Khalifa) Hifter was trained by the CIA.”

Speaking in an interview with Press TV on Thursday, Short said the United States aims to break down Nigeria into a micro state.

“There is larger scheme by the Angelo American white supremacist imperialistic power complex to break down the state they have invented in colonial eras for their purposes,” he said.

President Barack Obama said on Wednesday the US has deployed dozens of troops to Chad to help locate the kidnapped schoolgirls in neighboring Nigeria.

However, Short said the US already has troops in the region.

“There are thousands of American personnel already there, this has been going on for a while, the whole purpose is to destroy Nigeria.”

“Mr. (Zbigniew) Brzezinski, who is Obama’s advisor for Africa along with Ms. Susan Rice wanted to break Africa to micro states,” he said.

“They don’t give a damn about black women…they’ve been working to destroy the Nigerian state for decades, they don’t care anything about those girls,” he noted.

According to senior American defense officials, the US military is using spy drones as well as manned aircraft over Nigeria to locate the girls who were abducted on the night of April 14th in a small town in northeastern Nigeria.
