If this is true, why are we not allowed to see this the censored part of the report? The only reason would appear to be to protect the Saudis.

Via NY Post:

Just 15 days before the 9/11 attacks, a well-connected Saudi family suddenly abandoned their luxury home in Sarasota, Fla., leaving behind jewelry, clothes, opulent furniture, a driveway full of cars — including a brand new Chrysler PT Cruiser — and even a refrigerator full of food.

About the only thing not left behind was a forwarding address. The occupants simply vanished without notifying their neighbors, realtor or even mail carrier.

The 3,300-square-foot home on Escondito Circle belonged to Esam Ghazzawi, a Saudi adviser to the nephew of then-King Fahd. But at the time, it was occupied by his daughter and son-in-law, who beat a hasty retreat back to Saudi Arabia just two weeks before the attacks after nearly a six-year stay here.

Neighbors took note of the troubling coincidence and called the FBI, which opened an investigation that led to the startling discovery that at least one “family member” trained at the same flight school as some of the 9/11 hijackers in nearby Venice, Fla.

The investigation into the prominent Saudi family’s ties to the hijackers started on Sept. 19, 2001, and remained active for several years. It was led by the FBI’s Tampa field office but also involved the bureau’s field offices in New York and Washington, and also the Southwest Florida Domestic Security Task Force.

Agents identified persons of interest in the case, establishing their ties to other terrorists, sympathies with Osama bin Laden and anti-American remarks. They looked into their bank accounts, colleges and places of employment. They tracked at least one suspect’s re-entry into the US.

Revealed: Known jihadist members among attendees at secret White House meeting

Family Security Matters

by LTC ALLEN WEST (US ARMY RET)

Remember the piece I wrote firmly stating several reasons why President Barack Obama is an Islamist sympathizer? I think the case was laid out rather simply and wasn’t based on conjecture, but fact, actions and policies by the president. Of course I’m not the only one to say so. More and more Americans are coming to that conclusion as well.

You have to scratch your head after watching the recent Vox.com interview where Obama referred to the Paris Jewish Kosher store terror attackers as “folks” and “random.” And of course the historically inaccurate moral equivalency and relativism proclamations of the president at the National Prayer Breakfast further solidifies the case of our resident sympathizing with the Islamist enemy.

However, last week something happened even more damning for Obama (if that’s possible) – and he doesn’t seem to care. As you might recall, President Obama met with American Muslim leaders at the White House, but the administration was unwilling to reveal who attended the meeting, which was closed to the press.

But as reported by Investors Business Daily, “After complaints, the White House finally released names of the “Muslim leaders” Obama met with behind closed doors a week ago Wednesday. Now we know why it was secret. The list includes members of known jihadist groups. After stonewalling for days about the names of participants at the almost two-hour meeting with the president and his national security advisers – a meeting that was granted at the request of Muslim Advocates, an Islamist group that’s demanded a stop to NYPD surveillance of radical mosques, anti-terrorist drone strikes and Gitmo detentions – the White House quietly attached the list of attendees to the back of its daily press briefing transcript Thursday evening, according to the Washington Times.”

Mosques on the front lines in the war against America

American Thinker

As the Islamic invasion advances, mosques are proliferating across the United States at breakneck speed. And there appears to be no end in sight.

Since 9/11, the number of mosques in America has grown by 75%. The timing of this is no coincidence. Mosques are a symbol of Islamic supremacism. Islam attacks. Then it plants a triumphal mosque on the battlefield. And another. And another. And another.

The proliferation of mosques is also a sign of our incomprehensible response (or lack thereof) to the threat of Islam.

War has been waged against the United States and what have we done? We have welcomed the enemy with open arms. Dhimmitude has paved the way for hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of new mosques since the day nearly 3,000 Americans were murdered in the name of Islam.

If we don’t put an end to this madness, we will ensure the continued assault against us – an assault that, ultimately, will spare no one. (Do you hear that, dhimmis? That includes you.)

Mosques pose a dual risk to Americans. First there is the nature of what is preached inside the walls of the mosque. Second is the nature of the walls themselves.

As to the first point, recent studies show that 80% of mosques preach jihad (through sermons and/or materials) and that more than 95% of Muslims attend such mosques.

But the horror doesn’t end there as one considers the issue of funding. While many Muslims claim they raise the money for mosques within the local community, there is reason to doubt this assertion in many cases. Common sense alone would cause one to question how, for example, tiny communities of Muslims could raise millions of dollars to built gigantic mosques. Common sense aside, there is evidence that shows that 80% of mosques in this country receive funds from Saudi Arabia.

So here we are with at least 1,700 mosques that promote jihad, the vast majority of Muslims attending such mosques, and millions upon millions of dollars flowing in from Saudi Arabia building this dangerous empire. Put it all together and one realizes that mosques serve as jihadist recruitment and training centers.

Welcome to the intersection of religion and politics. In the case of Islam, welcome to hell. Because at its core, Islam is a totalitarian ideology that demands submission. In fact, the word Islam literally means submission: as in convert, pay the jizya tax and live as a second-class citizen, or die.

Anyone who wants to argue otherwise (1) has not read the Koran, (2) does not understand the implications of Chapter 2, Verse 106: Abrogation, whereby more recent violent verses supersede earlier more peaceful verses, (3) is uneducated about world history as it pertains to the rise and fall of Islam, (4) is not paying attention to the Islamic savagery unfolding before our eyes in the Middle East, (5) is in deep denial, and/or (6) is lying.

To fully appreciate the danger of mosques, once should also heed the words of Turkish poet Ziya Gokalp (quoted by Turkey’s PM Erdogan in a 1997 speech):

The minarets are our bayonets, the domes our helmets, the mosques our barracks and the faithful our army.

These words are a chilling reminder of the role mosques serve when the time arrives for violent conquest. Although Gokalp wrote the words in 1912, the idea dates back centuries, as the Investigative Project on Terrorism reports. (If you have difficulty with the link, the same report can be found at here.)

…The prophet Muhammad’s first project was to construct a mosque in his city, Medina, which served as his residence and a government headquarters of sorts. Muhammad turned the mosque into a center of preaching where…the Muslim army was prepared for wars and raids on the enemies of Islam. A commonly held view by Muslim religious scholars is that a mosque is more than just a place of worship and can have military and political uses….

The view that mosques can serve as military bases is upheld today by influential Muslim clerics who preach that mosques be used as places from which to launch jihad attacks. And, indeed, in modern times we have seen mosques used for military operations in countries around the world. Here is a snapshot of places and situations where mosques have been used as military outposts per an analysis posted at the Investigative Project on Terrorism:

  • Lebanon, Afghanistan, and areas where the Palestinian Authority has control; Hamas and Hezb’allah routinely use mosques for military operations.
  • In Iraq, US military forces frequently discovered munitions stored in mosques and had intense battles against terrorists using mosques for military purposes.
  • Mosques are also routinely used for military operations in places where Islamic terror organizations wield political and/or military might against the government. This occurs in many Arab countries (Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Syria) and has also been seen in Pakistan.
  • In addition, mosques have been used for military purposes in Great Britain, Italy, Germany, and Spain. Continue reading

Terrorism and the Missing Southeast Asia Flights

CFP

This article is simply the offspring of observation, and speculation regarding those observations.

The AirAsia flight that recently vanished, without a word, was being flown by Captain Iriyanto, a devout and active Muslim (and his co-pilot was a Muslim-French National).  The pilot of the Malaysian flight that vanished without a word was also a devout Muslim, as was his co-pilot.

Both were experienced flyers, and experts found it to be conceivable that they could have avoided the tragedies that befell them and the dead passengers under their care.  Experts found it inconceivable that communications simply went dark, and they simply lost touch with the flights and then had to search for the flights for an extended period of time before discovering the fateful ends of the AirAsia flight, and never discovering the wreckage of the Malaysia flight.

Was the disappearance of these flights, and the nose dive of the first flight into the ocean, and the disappearance of the second, just a tragedy, or do they have anything in common with the flights that nose dived into twin towers, a Pennsylvania field, and the Pentagon, on September 11, 2001?  When the first flight hit the World Trade Center we exclaimed, “What an awful accident!”  When the second plane hit, and we saw the images, we exclaimed, “This was done on purpose!”  When the first plane from the Indonesian region vanished under dubious circumstances, we cried out how unfortunate of an accident it was (well, some of us suspected foul play, in defiance to the politically correct narrative being pushed by the media).  Now that there has been a second flight that suddenly vanished, similar in circumstances, and similar in the membership to Islam in regards to the pilots, should we once again say it was a tragic accident?  Or should we come to the same conclusion we came to when the second plane hit the twin towers, and realize it was done on purpose?

Giving our enemies aid and comfort

Family Security Matters

Because our Founders understood very well what fates awaited them had the Revolution not ended in victory, Article 3, Section 3 of the Constitution draws a crucial definition very narrowly:  ‘Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them aid and comfort.

This week, and by any reasonable measure, the lame-duck Democratic majority of the United States Senate gave our enemies aid and comfort. If you doubt that, then you haven’t been paying attention to the outraged howls of the jihadis or the stern school-marm lectures delivered from the unlikeliest of places: Russia, China and even the UN’s special rapporteur for human rights. Red Foxx was right: Life is hard but it’s ever harder if you’re stupid.

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.
