American investigative journalist Wayne Madsen says Americans are targeted by terrorists who are trained by the United States government.

“We’re targeted because we’re training the people that target our own citizens,” he told Press TV on Saturday.

He made the comments after the US State Department warned Americans residing worldwide to prepare for “terrorist actions and violence,” following Paris attacks.

In a statement on Friday, the department said the recent terrorist attacks serve as a reminder that American citizens need to maintain a “high level of vigilance” and “take appropriate steps to increase their security awareness.”

It said that US-led airstrikes against the ISIL terrorist group in Iraq and Syria made American nationals and interests a target for reprisals, “especially in the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and Asia.”

Madsen noted that the US is definitely not serious about “cutting off” ISIL.

“At the end of this month, the CIA is going to start training the use of lethal weapons, which I would imagine is already going on… They’re starting to train the Syrian rebel forces in Turkey and Jordan, and they’re increasing that training,” Madsen said.

“This is just going to be another opportunity for people who are trained by the CIA to commit further acts of terrorism” in France or in the United States, he added.

He also said the US government should stop supporting the Syrian militants immediately in order to end the threats.
