It seems most of the IS (as they have re-branded... again) were trained by the U.S. in Syria indirectly as defectors from mostly FSA (Free Syrian Army), although there may be reports that the rebels were ISIS undercover in the FSA all along.  So yes, the U.S. did train several members of ISIS, not all.

I think the main point that I see in this story is that they were Al Qaeda fighters, alliance with Al-Nusra, that have followed the teachings of Al Wahhab from Saudi Arabia.  The Al Wahhab teaching is that you will follow Al Wahhab vision of Islam only.  It is the most radical of the teachings that I have heard of.  They literally are fighting everyone.


But Yes, we end up training them all... somewhere, sometime...
