Countless news videos and social media posts show Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists driving around in what appear to be new Toyota trucks.

The U.S. has asked Toyota to explain how hundreds, if not thousands, of the ubiquitous white pickups ended up in enemy hands.

ABC News tells us “Toyota Hilux pickups, an overseas model similar to the Toyota Tacoma, and Toyota Land Cruisers have become fixtures in videos of the ISIS campaign in Iraq, Syria and Libya, with their truck beds loaded with heavy weapons and cabs jammed with terrorists.”

The videos must make for effective propaganda. Thousands of Americans and Europeans are trying to travel to the Middle East to join ISIS.

Toyota says it does not know how ISIS obtained the vehicles, but is trying to assist the Terror Financing unit of the U.S. Treasury Department in its investigation.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say ISIS is stealing or capturing the Toyota trucks.

Obama’s Setting Us Up for Another 9/11

Independent Sentinel

We have an FBI director who is putting on a “brave face”, there are terror warnings throughout the world, recent terror attacks, and a refugee screening process that is frighteningly and deeply flawed. Wait until you see how we screen the refugees and who does the screening. It doesn’t matter what his intentions are, Barack Obama is setting us up for another 9/11. It might not be this year but it will happen.

I’ve often contended the terrorists will wait until he’s out of office because he’s the best friend they could ever hope to have in the White House. 0 The holiday season is upon us and many are worried about the obvious that it would be a perfect time for jihadis to attack Americans. As 9/11 is etched in our memories so could Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas, Hannukah, and New Year’s. The terror groups have shown their eagerness to attack US and US interests and to blow up soft targets. Their enthusiasm for killing innocents stems from the fact that it’s a great recruitment tool. Brussels has raised the terror alert to the highest level and issued a warning that they are facing an “imminent threat”. At least one Paris terror suspect remains at large.

50 US Spies: The Obama Admin Manipulates Our Reports, Threatens Us If We Speak Out

Free Republic

More than 50 spies working for the military have come out with shocking allegations: according to them, the Obama administration has taken their painfully honest assessments of the war against ISIS and effectively reinterpreted them to paint a rosy picture of things that reflects well on the presidents efforts against the terrorist group.

The spies specifically went out of their way to clarify that it wasn’t just a matter of rogue agents telling falsehoods to advance their own careers. Rather, as one of the operatives involved said, The cancer was within the senior level of command, revealing how high this conspiracy of competence goes.

Indeed, the allegations are serious enough that the Pentagon has charged its inspector general with investigating the intelligence agents claims. This followed the submission of a formal written complaint by two veteran analysts at U.S. Central Command in July, prompting the Department of Defense to look into the matter itself.
