Excuse Me, Mr. Terrorist, Are You OK?

Free Republic

There are those who conduct themselves with a clear penchant for humility, pragmatism, and those so-called leaders who yell “fire” in church because it’s the only way they can be saved. Mrs. Feinstein, I have neither the stomach nor the inclination to aid your vindictive campaign to politically exploit and berate our intelligence community, those patriots who tirelessly toil to protect ignorant and ungrateful hypocrites like yourself, so I instead would like to embark on a brief history lesson. Do you recall, Senator, when your accomplice and savior, Barack Obama, “spiked the football” and referenced (knighted) himself for the umpteenth time to somehow infer he was personally responsible for finding and killing Osama Bin Laden…the most wanted man in the world? “I ordered, solely my decision, at my discretion” were but a few of the pious declarations made at the expense of the true embodiment of courage and bravery, the U.S. Navy Seals.

If you may, Diane, by what sheer fortune or natural phenomenon do you actually believe this monumental task was accomplished? Please don’t tell us your progressive predilections actually presume that by offering evil an olive branch – three squares a day, a prayer mat and a warm cot – Islam’s most ardent zealots are going to inexplicably commit to peace and spill their most insidious secrets; their insatiable plans and desire to murder the infidel? As you callously silence the screams and conveniently misplace the names of your countrymen killed at Ground Zero, the Marine barracks in Lebanon, or those murdered aboard the USS Cole, it’s painfully obvious you have absolutely no recollection or appreciation for the perilous means, the exhaustive efforts, that were employed to identify Bin Laden’s operatives and thus locate his whereabouts in order to end his infamous reign of terror. For roughly a decade thousands of intelligence and military personnel risked life and limb to scour over every crumb of data, no matter how isolated or promising, in hopes of achieving one singular goal: saving American lives. Yet, standing on your predisposed Anti-American platform of derision and division, you have the gall to sabotage these ongoing efforts, damage our credibility and embolden our enemy by distorting the truth with your complete lack of perspective.

In honor of the non-dialectic movement known as liberalism, let us digress! Would a majority Americans stand opposed to predominately non-fatal interrogation methods that potentially protected thousands of lives, arguably another 9/11, or would they put their trust in those extremists – not your shameless Tea Party fabrications, mind you – who renew their vows daily to destroy Western Civilization; AKA, “We the People”? While the CIA waterboarded known terrorist elements, used solitary and psychological tactics to extract critical information, Islamic terrorists were busy beheading, brutalizing and raping women and children – both American and native nonbelievers. And guess which faction the good Senator and her inquisition chose to denounce, let alone recognize? What you call grotesque or a clear violation of international protocol pales in comparison to the atrocities committed by radical Islam…those whom Democrats and the U.N. continue to aid and abet with their dollars and indifference. You dare lecture America about protocol and principles when your constituents showed absolutely no regard for the victims of Benghazi; those left to die in the most inhumane manner – beaten, sodomized, and/or burned alive – because their government cared more about appeasing Muslim sentiment in the region than saving those who faithfully served their country? Has your fearless leader’s incorrigible standards “to stand down” also led your conscience to block all and any efforts to hold this administration accountable for their blatant breach of duty? Apparently so.

The enemy combatants you so empathetically embrace over the welfare of your own homeland are neither human or deserving of any protections whatsoever afforded by the Geneva Convention. As rogue merchants of death forged from an antiquated and malevolent religion, these captured militants are neither of a recognized army or fighting on behalf of a sovereign nation at war. However, because the radical left continues to distort the totality of our tactics and incessantly fights for detainees’ rights – providing legal representation and procuring inane agreements allowing these murderers to rejoin their bloodthirsty ranks – our intelligence community must once again defend its common sense efforts to safeguard this nation. Despite being privy to a glut of contradictory evidence detailing the countless terrorist threats thwarted by our intelligence agencies on a routine basis, perhaps Senator Feinstein and her merry band of antagonists would like to validate their sensational findings by living amongst their misunderstood Muslim brothers in Syria, Gaza, Egypt or Iraq. Something tells me when their apologetic appendages are left to rot in the desert of Islamic good will, just like the universally welcomed hostages of ISIS or al Qaeda, they’ll wish they’re partisan report was waterboarded by airport security and their flights cancelled in the name of self-preservation. Yes, in a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act. Some just need a refreshing glass of water to help them find the answers their contradictions are choking on.

Adnan El Shukrijumah: Is The Boogeyman Really Dead?

Adanan el-Shukrijumah

Family Security Matters

The boogeyman is dead – – or is he?

No greater boogeyman caused more American nightmares than Adnan el-Shukrijumah, who, according to Munir Ahmed of the Associated Press, was killed Saturday in the South Waziristan province of Pakistan.

The al Qaeda leader, we are told, was picked off by members of the Pakistani army.

The news of Adnan’s demise caused millions of Americans to utter a huge sigh of relief.

Raised in Brooklyn and Miramar, Florida, by a radical Islamic family (his father Gulshair was an imam and spiritual advisor to blind sheikh Omar Rahman), Adnan joined the holy war in the late 1990s to fight the perceived persecution of Muslims in places like Chechnya and Bosnia. In the months before 9/11, he escorted Mohammad Atta to Norman, Oklahoma, for simulated pilot instruction.

A graduate of Broward Community College, Adnan reportedly continued his education at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, where he enrolled under an alias. At McMaster, he teamed up with a crew of fellow jihadis and, according to The Washington Times and other reputable sources, gained access to the university’s nuclear reactor.

Upon catching wind of Adnan’s purported nuclear plans, the FBI issued a BOLO for his arrest and a $5 million bounty on his head.

Adnan’s face graced the front pages of every leading newspaper and cable news broadcast.

Following his disappearance from the Hamilton campus, the elusive boogeyman popped up in a series of strange places, including Honduras, Guyana, Sonora, Mexico, and a Wendy’s restaurant in Avon, Colorado.

Now we are told Adnan is smoldering in a shallow grave in the wilds of Waziristan.

No pictures of his body have been published, and no verification of his demise has been provided, save the dubious testimony of Pakistani military officials.

Is Adnan dead?

Al Qaeda Terrorist Wanted by FBI Crossed Back and Forth Into U.S. From Mexico

Judicial Watch

An Al Qaeda terrorist on the FBI’s most wanted list for years crossed back and forth into the United States from Mexico to meet fellow militant Islamists in Texas and piloted an aircraft into the Cielo Dorado airfield in Anthony, New Mexico, law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch.

The same Al Qaeda operative helped plan the 2009 bombing of talk-show superstar Oprah Winfrey’s Chicago studios and the iconic Sears Tower (renamed Willis Tower), a story that Judicial Watch broke just last week. His name is Adnan G. El Shukrijumah (also known as “Javier Robles”) and over the weekend he was killed in Pakistan, according to military officials in the Islamic republic.

In 2010 Shukrijumah was indicted in the Eastern District of New York for his role in a terrorist plot to attack targets in the United States—including New York City’s subway system—and the United Kingdom, according the FBI. The plot against New York City’s subway system was directed by senior Al Qaeda leadership in Pakistan, the FBI says, and was also directly related to a scheme by Al Qaeda plotters in Pakistan to use Western operatives to attack a target in the United States.

State Dept. Has Not Cancelled Passports of Any ‘ISIS or Foreign Fighters’ Returning to U.S.

(CNSNews.com) – The United States must use “all of the tools at our disposal” to deal with the threat posed by Americans and other Westerners who go to Syria and Iraq to fight with ISIS, a State Department official told Congress on Tuesday.

But so far, that does not include revoking the passports of U.S. citizens who have traveled to Syria to fight with ISIS.

“Has the State Department cancelled the passports of any U.S. citizens who have joined any terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq?” Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) asked Ambassador Robert Bradtke on Tuesday at a hearing of a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee.

“To my knowledge, the State Department has not cancelled any passports,” responded Bradtke, a senior adviser with the State Department’s Bureau of Counterterrorism who was called out of retirement to focus on foreign fighters.

Obama Administration Releases Illegal Aliens with Terror Ties, Blames It on a ‘Judge’

Family Security Matters

by ANDREW C. MCCARTHY

Homeland Security secretary Jeh Johnson gave some peculiar testimony in a House hearing Tuesday about two men tied to a designated terrorist organization who, he says, fled to Canada after “they were released by the judge” in an immigration hearing. Representative Jason Chaffetz pressed Secretary Johnson on the matter but appears either to have run out of time or not known what to ask. He and the committee should follow up promptly.

illegal-immigration-for-dummies

The story begins back in September when the pair, along with two other companions, were caught attempting to enter the United States through Mexico. It was quickly reported that four terrorists had tried to enter the country, igniting concerns that Islamic State cells were taking root here. Johnson quickly moved to ease those concerns by revealing that the four men were, in fact, Kurds associated with the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

The PKK is a delicate subject for the Obama administration at the moment. In Iraq and Syria, the Kurds are fighting our enemy, the Islamic State, and PKK forces are among their most effective fighters. The PKK, however, is itself a designated terrorist organization under American law. The administration thus faces a problem similar to that which hamstrings its support for the so-called moderate Syrian opposition: aiding the enemy of our enemy is material support to terrorism – a serious federal crime. (As I’ve noted time and again, the “moderate” Syrian opposition is rife with anti-Western Muslim Brotherhood elements and its most effective fighters are al-Qaeda affiliates.)

At the time of their detention, Secretary Johnson vowed that DHS would deport the four Kurds. But at yesterday’s hearing, he admitted that two were still detained and, worse, the other two had been released and had fled to Canada. Regarding the latter pair, the secretary claimed that their release was:

Groups Behind Closing Gitmo

Founders Code

A few years ago, Marc Thiessen wrote a book titled Courting Disaster. The spirit of the book delivers proven evidence that interrogation of enemy combatants kept America safe and offered up more actionable knowledge in the terror networks globally. Thiessen provides names, organizations and lobby groups in full opposition of black sites and Guantanamo. One needs to understand all the moving parts before they offer criticism of decisions by the Bush administration.

closinggitmo

So as Barack Obama entered the White House, his first move was to close Gitmo while almost 7 years later there are 140 detainees still there. The question is why? The team known to be the go-to operation to close Gitmo has also proven some success in getting terrorists released from the ‘other’ Gitmo, the prison(s) in Colorado that actually has more detainees than Gitmo.

These wars across the globe against terror networks involves hundreds of thousands of fighters, hence in begs the question, who no capture and interrogate? Is killing the via drone since all ground hostilities have been terminated effective? Terror cells have grown exponentially including al Nusra, Daesh, AQAP, Boko Harem and more. Their operating territory has expanded in the last 6 years as well.

Here are some facts that cannot be disputed.
