The U.S. controls IS?

From Thairath, December 18, 2015
U.S. President: General, prepare the missile to destroy where the IS leader tranquilly lives!
General: Wait a minute, Mr. President.
US President: Why?
General: Why don’t Mr. President hurriedly move your family out of the White house first…

[This reflects a widespread belief in Thailand (and in other countries around the world) that the Islamic State (IS or ISIS) was actually created and controlled by the United States for its own foreign policy ends.
This belief is based claims that some factions of IS were at some point in the past funded or otherwise supported by the U.S. Coupled with widespread disillusionment with the motives of the United States, this has led to cynicism about whether the U.S. is really fighting IS or not.]
