Free Republic

The American government has released two prisoners from Guantanamo Bay, the high profile anti-terrorism prison in Cuba, the Defense Department confirmed on Monday.

The two Libyans, formerly explosives experts for al-Qaeda, were transferred to Senegal.

Salem Abdu Salam Ghereby is thought to have fought in Afghanistan against coalition forces at Usama bin Laden’s Tora Bora “and was associated with senior members of al-Qaeda.”

In 2008, Omar Khalif Mohammed Abu Baker Mahjour Umar was judged likely to “immediately seek out prior associates and reengage in hostilities and extremist support activities.” …

Barack Obama’s politicized Pentagon is releasing a dozen very dangerous terrorists from GITMO. It starts this weekend and it is being done as terrorism threats grow throughout the world.

Major Montgomery Granger, a former ranking medical department officer in Guantanamo Bay and author of Saving Grace at Guantanamo Bay, appeared on Fox & Friends this morning and was asked by Tucker Carlson what he knew about these detainees.

Granger said that “One of the alleged to be released is Terik Abdullah. He’s a trained Al Qaeda fighter, artillery expert, member of Usama bin Laden’s brigade and captured in December of 2001 and released to U.S. Custody, December 31st, 2001. He arrived at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba a day after I got there, on February 8th, 2002. I watched him get off the plane, get on a bus, get taken to Camp X-Ray, which I detail this in my book “Saving Grace, Guantanamo bay” available on Amazon. And he had a history of misbehavior. He would put urine, feces and other bodily fluid[…], spray it on guards and is currently held in isolation because of his noncompliance.”

He’s only about 38 years old and has years of terrorism in front of him.

“At this time,” Granger continued. “…Statistics used to be around 30% of released detainees are known or suspected to have returned to the battlefield. But the real important thing is the 70% we don’t know about. Where are they? Are they in Paris, San Bernardino?”

Carlson wanted to know what the people who work at GITMO think?

“It’s completely insane,” Granger said. “I mean islamists follow sharia law and people need to understand that islamist is not just a religion, it’s a political movement. They believe in theocracy. Which means their religion is their law. Their civil and criminal law. That’s not compatible with the American Judeo-Christian ethic.”

There are no efforts to rehabilitate these guys, just release them. While they are at GITMO, they aren’t prisoners.

Granger explained, “They’re not prisoners per se they’re detainees. By Geneva convention, they are not to be — they don’t have to be tried or accused of anything. Even while I was there, we would give them children’s welcomes to read. They have a library. If you keep them fat and happy, Tucker, they are less dangerous to themselves and to the guards.”

Carlson said it is “A shame we are not making some effort to change them ideologically…”

“It’s very interesting, we tried…in the beginning, they would play the national anthem and raise the flag at the camp each morning and the commander cut it down,” Granger added astonishingly.

One of the detainees was previously dubbed one of the “worst of the worst” in America’s war on terror. Bah Odah, also called Tariq Ba Odah, a 37-year-old Yemeni, is among the dozen slated for release and resettlement.

All the people being released now are the worst of the worst.

About two dozen released detainees had joined ISIS as of 2014. Obama will release every dangerous terrorist without any concern for the people they will kill because they are collateral damage to his reaching his goal of closing GITMO and fulfilling his self-centered legacy.

We drove Saddam’s Yellowcake to Baghdad Airport

Socialism is not the Answer

There has been a lot of talk about WMD in Iraq before we invaded. Most saw the photos but if you remember they were on trucks being transported. Anyone care to guess where they were going? How about Syria? For those who follow the news, we know there were WMD’s in Iraq. Why am I so sure you ask? Because the US gave them to Iraq when Iraq was fighting Iran.

Think about it and while you are thinking about it, read the story below.

A BLAST FROM THE PAST

 

Family Security Matters

As someone who led the company that transported 550 metric tons of yellowcake uranium-enough to make fourteen Hiroshima-size bombs-from Saddam’s nuclear complex in the Iraq War’s notorious “Triangle of Death” for air shipment out of the country, I know Baathist Iraq’s WMD potential existed. In early 2008, we secretly moved over several nights 140 truckloads carrying 5500 barrels of extremely heavy radioactive material provided to Iraq as part of the French-supplied Osiraq reactor destroyed by Israeli fighter bombers in 1981. The virulently anti-Semitic Saddam had announced “here begins the Arab bomb” and the Israelis took him at his word.

2016 ISIS Threats in the USA so far…

FSM NATIONAL SECURITY TEAM

If you think ISIS is not a direct and immediate threat to Americans in America, think again…

dhs isis threat in america 2016

Chairman McCaul: “The Islamist terror threat remains alarmingly high as recent arrests and terror plots demonstrate. ISIS recruits wage war in our communities, while thousands of deadly fighters trained in Syria stream back into the West – some of them infiltrating massive refugee flows. ISIS continues its global expansion on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and the still-dangerous al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula seizes greater territory in Yemen. Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin and the revitalized Iran-Assad-Hezbollah terror axis are further destabilizing the Syrian crisis in the absence of U.S. leadership. This year is on track to be as dangerous as – if not worse than – 2015 for the American homeland and our national security.”

Key takeaways in this month’s Terror Threat Snapshot include:

  • The Iranian regime gained access to $100 billion in cash from the disastrous nuclear deal and is poised for further economic relief that will fuel its global network of terror.
  • An increasing number of battle-hardened fighters from Europe are returning from jihadist training grounds. Nearly 2,000 Europeans – among an estimated 6,600 Western fighters who have traveled to Syria and Iraq – have snuck back into Europe. A French counterterrorism official recently warned, “We are moving towards a European 9/11: simultaneous attacks on the same day in several countries…We know the terrorists are working on this.”
  • Islamist terrorists are exploiting global refugee flows to infiltrate and target the West. Germany’s domestic intelligence chief recently said terrorists “have slipped in camouflaged or disguised as refugees. This is a fact that the security agencies are facing.” A suspected ISIS terror plotter arrested in Germany this week snuck into Europe posing as a refugee. The European Union also recently assessed there is a “real and imminent danger” of Syrian refugees inside Europe being radicalized and recruited by Islamist extremists.
  • ISIS and al Qaeda are expanding their sanctuaries from North Africa to South Asia. ISIS is reinforcing its foothold in Libya, where it has amassed as many as 6,500 fighters and controls coastal territory on the Mediterranean Sea. Al Qaeda is making further gains in Yemen and its key ally in Afghanistan controls more territory than it has at any point since 2001.
  • The Obama Administration has surged the release of terrorists from Guantanamo Bay despite alarming rates of recidivism. The intelligence community has assessed that 30 percent of Guantanamo detainees released are either known to have or suspected of having rejoined the fight. The potential transfer of detainees to the United States, prohibited under law, would also pose a threat to the American people.
  • The United States faces the highest Islamist terror threat environment since 9/11. ISIS is waging war here in the homeland, where there have been 21 ISIS-linked plots to launch attacks. Law enforcement authorities have arrested 81 ISIS-linked suspects, including six thus far in 2016.

Barack Obama continues to release vicious GITMO terrorists in order to close the detention facility down. He does not care that these are people plan to kill Americans, US soldiers and allies.

Ex-Guantanamo detainee Ibrahim al Qosi has been the poster boy for Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s (AQAP) propaganda since early December, when he first revealed that he is a senior leader in the group. He has been out since 2012 and he’s not even the worst of them.

Qosi has been addressing terrorists in Saudi Arabia, encouraging them to rebel against their government. Recently, they railed against the execution of more than 40 terrorist “mujahideen”. He said they were killed for declaring jihad against the “Crusaders” and opposed American interests.

When the leaders of ISIS declared the caliphate of the Islamic State in June 2014, the world already had a strong idea of who they were: a jihadist group so violent, so barbaric, so extreme, that even al-Qaida, with whom they had once been affiliated, wanted nothing more to do with them.

But as the world soon learned, it would get even worse.

Fear grows as Islamic State spreads: Terror network digs in deep in Afghanistan, Libya

Family Security Matters

DR. PETER BROOKES

 

As if they didn’t have enough to deal with already, the Pentagon has a new problem to panic about: the rise of Islamic State (aka ISIS) affiliates in Afghanistan and Libya.

While we’ve known that ISIS has been spreading beyond the Middle East, creating allies and claiming “provinces,” there has been limited U.S. military activity against it outside the Syria-Iraq theater.

That may be changing.
