Two former Guantanamo detainees were arrested this week in a counterterrorism operation.
CNN reported:

Two former detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba were arrested by Belgian police in a counterterrorism operation targeting a recruiting network for al Qaeda in Syria.

They were arrested Wednesday night along with three others as they were about to break into a house to raise funds in the town of Hoboken, near Antwerp, a senior Belgian counterterrorism official told CNN.

“We have dismantled a serious recruiting network for Syria,” the official told CNN.

One of the former Guantanamo Bay detainees was Moussa Zemmouri, 37, a Moroccan national born in Antwerp, Belgian federal prosecutors announced Friday. The other was an Algerian identified as Soufiane A., who prosecutors believe spent time in Syria.

Both have been charged with participating in the activities of a terrorist group and all five have been charged with attempted armed robbery.

Zemmouri was released from Guantanamo in 2005 and authored a book “Innocent at Guantanamo” after returning to Belgium. His case was featured prominently by the UK Muslim prisoner advocacy group CAGE, which has long maintained that he has no links to terrorism.

According to a 2003 detainee assessment file posted by the WikiLeaks website, Zemmouri was transferred to U.S. custody after he was detained by Pakistani police when fleeing Afghanistan after the beginning of the U.S. bombing campaign in autumn 2001.

State Dept. withholding content of Obama/Hillary call from night of Benghazi attack

Some of us remember that Barack Obama jetted off to a fundraiser in Las Vegas on the night our consulate in Benghazi was attacked by terrorists associated with Al Qaeda. Now you might be able to offer this defense of the president: He can do his job from anywhere. He has communication capabilities wherever he goes, and he has the freedom to use them any time he wants.

And, yes, that’s true. And on the night of September 11, 2012, he did make use of his communication tools to talk with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about what was happening in Benghazi. Not only that, but it turns out there is a transcript of that call in the possession of the State Department.

So what did they say? Ha! They’re not telling you, sillies. What they said is for them to know and you to not find out.

ALERT: Map of 22 Terrorist Camps in US Where a July 4th Attack Could Come From

Conservative Tribune

Patriotic holidays in America, like July Fourth,  have always been a target for Islamic terrorists. However, it’s a sad sign of the state of affairs under President Barack Obama that there are at least 22 terrorist training camps in the United States from which a possible attack could be launched.

And why are these camps allowed to exist without interference from federal authorities? Well, among other reasons, the president refuses to define the group that runs them as a terrorist organization.

A map of the alleged locations of these camps was compiled, and if you think these sites are an isolated phenomenon, you’d better think again:

8acaec86e6a0a8cb25bc620b11a07f79

The existence of the 22 terrorist training sites was announced by the FBI in 2014. The camps, run by Jamaat ul-Fuqra, also have ties to other extremist organizations like Al Qaeda, Islamic Jihad, Hamas and Hezbollah. To enter these camps, terrorist trainees must pledge allegiance to an extremist Pakistani cleric.

From Boston to San Diego, the 22 camps are evenly distributed and very close to large cities — including New York, Washington and Los Angeles.

While every Independence Day is a time for heightened security, this year’s holiday has seen an almost unprecedented deployment of law enforcement and intelligence officials across the fruited plain.

The FBI has cancelled all vacations and time off for agents over the July Fourth weekend. It’s also installed 56 regional command centers across the country to respond to possible July Fourth threats and sent memos to local police departments warning that celebrations could be targeted.

Word has also gotten out that many FBI agents are privately warning friends and family to steer clear of “official celebrations” over the holiday weekend.

The FBI has also warned that “soft targets” — things like banks, schools, power plants and water treatment facilities, among others — could be targeted by terrorists (H/T Mad World News).

President Obama took office promising that he would make us safer and more respected around the world. Now, amid the crumbling of two nations America had saved from Islamist dictatorships, we face a July Fourth where we live in fear thanks to the blossoming of Islamic terror within America.

Thanks, Mr. President.

Obama Admin Knew Al-Qaeda Was Planning Attack in Benghazi 10 DAYS IN ADVANCE

 

Gateway Pundit

They lied.

They said it was a “protest” not a terrorist attack.
rice five lies

Now there’s more proof that they lied.
The Obama administration knew al-Qaeda was planning an attack in Benghazi to “kill as many Americans as possible” ten days in advance.
Judicial Watch reported:

Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified “Secret” documents from the Department of Defense (DOD)and the Department of State revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was committed by the al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked “Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman” (BCOAR), and had been planned at least 10 days in advance. Rahman is known as the Blind Sheikh, and is serving life in prison for his involvement in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and other terrorist acts.  The new documents also provide the first official confirmation that shows the U.S. government was aware of arms shipments from Benghazi to Syria.  The documents also include an August 2012 analysis warning of the rise of ISIS and the predicted failure of the Obama policy of regime change in Syria.

The documents were released in response to a court order in accordance with a May 15, 2014, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against both the DOD and State Department seeking communications between the two agencies and congressional leaders “on matters related to the activities of any agency or department of the U.S. government at the Special Mission Compound and/or classified annex in Benghazi.”

Spelling and punctuation is duplicated in this release without corrections.

Defense Department document from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), dated September 12, 2012, the day after the Benghazi attack, details that the attack on the compound had been carefully planned by the BOCAR terrorist group “to kill as many Americans as possible.”  The document was sent to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Obama White House National Security Council.  The heavily redacted Defense Department “information report” says that the attack on the Benghazi facility “was planned and executed by The Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman (BCOAR).”  The group subscribes to “AQ ideologies:”

The attack was planned ten or more days prior on approximately 01 September 2012. The intention was to attack the consulate and to kill as many Americans as possible to seek revenge for U.S. killing of Aboyahiye ((ALALIBY)) in Pakistan and in memorial of the 11 September 2001 atacks on the World Trade Center buildings

“A violent radical,” the DIA report says, is “the leader of BCOAR is Abdul Baset ((AZUZ)), AZUZ was sent by ((ZAWARI)) to set up Al Qaeda (AQ) bases in Libya.”

Obama Gives Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free Cards To Osama’s Bodyguards

War On Terror: Rushing to empty Gitmo, President Obama has freed three bin Laden bodyguards, ignoring warnings they’d rejoin al-Qaida. Given high recidivism rates of already released inmates, what could go wrong?

Chances are that the terrorists will return to the battlefield or carry out other acts of terror against the U.S. Obama’s own intelligence czar has documented that nearly 30% of prisoners transferred from the Cuban prison have been confirmed or suspected of having re-engaged in terrorist activities.

That means for every three freed from Gitmo, one has returned to holy war against us. Military analysts say that their ability to track all former detainees is limited, so the recidivism rate may, in fact, be much higher.

Obama still secretly backing Muslim Brotherhood as “moderate” alternative to Islamic State and al-Qaeda

obama-muslim-brotherhood

Jihad Watch

The Islamic State, al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood all share the same goal: the imposition of Sharia over as much territory as possible, and ultimately over the whole world. But the Muslim Brotherhood is not working toward this goal with overt violence (except when it is), and so as far as Obama is concerned, it is “moderate.”

“Obama secretly backing Muslim Brotherhood,” by Bill Gertz, Washington Times, June 3, 2015 (thanks to Anne Crockett):

President Obama and his administration continue to support the global Islamist militant group known the Muslim Brotherhood. A White House strategy document regards the group as a moderate alternative to more violent Islamist groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State.

The policy of backing the Muslim Brotherhood is outlined in a secret directive called Presidential Study Directive-11, or PSD-11. The directive was produced in 2011 and outlines administration support for political reform in the Middle East and North Africa, according to officials familiar with the classified study.

Smoking Gun: Obama Admin Was Operating International Fast and Furious Through Benghazi to Syria

Freedom Outpost

Well the truth about Benghazi is finally starting to see the light. As we have theorized in several articles, the Obama administration was involved in an international Fast and Furious by trafficking arms through Benghazi into Syria. Today that theory has been confirmed.

Newly released documents show that US intelligence agencies were fully aware that weapons were moving from the Islamic terror stronghold in Libya to Syria before the attack on the Benghazi compound on September 11, 2012.

The documents also contradict Hussein Obama’s claim that the rise of the Islamic State came as a surprise to the administration.

FOX News’ Catherine Herridge said the newly released documents “showed a serious disconnect between what the administration said and what was known by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).”

Judicial Watch, who obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified documents reported:
