The Obama administration is secretly preparing to transfer up to 24 prisoners out of the U.S. military detention center Guantánamo Bay in Cuba by the end of the summer, the Guardian and Fox News report, citing unnamed sources. As the first news outlet to shed light on the plans, The Guardian notes that the transfer to multiple countries is expected to occur by the end of July.

Currently, there are 80 prisoners detained at the Guantánamo facility, down from the 242 when President Barack Obama took office.

A new report notes that Labib al Nahhas, a senior official of Ahrar Al-Sham, visited Washington in December 2015, State Department spokesman Mark Toner cited “privacy concerns” on Monday and said he would follow up.

“I do know this individual certainly did not have any meetings that I’m aware of at the State Department,” he said on Tuesday. “I can’t speak to whether we were aware or not aware of his visit or entry into the country. I just don’t have that information.”

What makes this so interesting is that al Nahhas is the leader of an al-Qaeda affiliate that we support — Ahrar al-Sham.

“Ahrar al-Sham is not a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization,” Toner said when Russia recently tried to have them declared a terrorist group. Russia wants them to have a “yellow card”, a terrorist designation, partly because they are against Bashar al-Assad which is exactly the reason the US and the West supports them.

The group is a coalition of multiple Islamist and Salafist units. The group aims to create an Islamic state under Sharia law, and is openly allied with Al-Nusra Front (the branch of Al-Qaeda in Syria) with which it carries out joint operations. Syria, the United Arab Emirates,Russia, Iran and Egypt have designated Ahrar ash-Sham as a terrorist organization and won’t issue the ‘yellow card’ as requested by the UN. That, however, is in support of al-Assad.

It’s hard to believe anyone cares about the massacre of villagers, especially the Christian ones or Alawites (al-Assad is an Alawite) like the people in al-Zara.

On May 13, Al-Sham fighters raided the village of al-Zara, killing and capturing scores of inhabitants in what was described as a massacre.

Ahrar al-Sham has emerged as not just a populist revolutionary force and the most powerful non-ISIL rebel faction in Syria, but allegedly they are questioning the Islamist movement, but I wouldn’t take that to the bank.

Pakistani with Fake Ecuadorean Passport Enters U.S. via Mexico Multiple Times

Family Security Matters

JUDICIAL WATCH

 

A Pakistani man with a fake passport and residence card from two different South American countries has been caught entering the U.S. illegally through Mexico and federal court documents reveal he has previously crossed into the country undetected by immigration authorities. The distressing case comes less than a month after Judicial Watch reported that an ISIS operative who trained terrorists in Pakistan travels back and forth through the porous southern border from a camp in the Mexican state of Chihuahua not far from El Paso, Texas. His name is Shaykh Mahmood Omar Khabir, a Kuwaiti who trained hundreds of Al Qaeda fighters in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen, according to JW’s high-ranking Homeland Security sources.

The Pakistani apprehended in the region this month, Javaid Muhammad, is in federal custody in Texas and is scheduled to appear in court on May 20 in McAllen. U.S. Border Patrol agents busted him on May 8, according to court documents obtained by JW, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has taken over the case. Authorities have confiscated Muhammad’s fraudulent Ecuadorean passport and Chilean residence card and he has admitted he’s never visited or resided in either South American country. Muhammad also “admitted to illegally crossing the international boundary of the United States without prior inspection by a United States Immigration Officer,” court files state. The FBI has evidence, including travel records and other government files, that proves Muhammad’s statements to the Border Patrol and FBI “were materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent,” the court documents say.

Ohio Islamic State Cell Slipped Under the Radar

Family Security Matters

by RYAN HEALY

 

An NBC News report listed 15 Americans with connections to the Islamic State (IS), including a cell featuring three residents of Columbus, Ohio . The names were connected to a flash drive that former IS member Abu Mohammaed stole when he defected from IS. While most of the names were known to law enforcement these three had successfully left America to join IS undetected. The three IS members were identified as Jeffrey Khan, Zakia Nasrin, and Rasel Raihan.

Nasrin was described as a promising student whose family immigrated from Bangladesh in 2000. She graduated valedictorian of her senior class at Metro Early College High School and enrolled at Ohio State University as a pre-med major. Nasrin’s family says she met Khan online and married him in 2010. Jaffrey was the son of immigrant parents who moved to Palo Alto but divorced when he was still young.

Jaffrey’s had always struggled in school and in life according to his father, Salem Khan, who runs a multi-million dollar healthcare IT business. friends say that the younger Khan became a devout Muslim, and according to family members shortly after began to espouse anti-American sentiment. ” Khan’s family noticed he was very strict with his new bride making her wear a hijab and veil cover her face. Ahmed Khan the cousin to Khan noted he made all men leave the room if Nasrin was present, or Khan made her sit in the car.

They returned to Columbus and moved into an apartment on Riverview Drive just north of Ohio State University.

Ahmed the Clock Boy Inspires Al Qaeda

Moonbattery
Remember Ahmed the Clock Boy, the hate hoaxer who was apparently put up by his Islamic activist father to bring to school a disemboweled alarm clock made to look like an IED? He was feted by liberals for months; now he is providing inspiration to Al Qaeda:
Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s new issue of Inspire magazine includes a shout out to the “Clock Boy” while slamming President Obama’s programs to counter violent extremism.
Ahmed Mohamed, 14, was arrested at his Texas high school in 2015 for bringing a homemade clock to school encased in what resembled a small briefcase. The device was seized by his English teacher and the cops were called. He was not charged with any crime.
“Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great,” Obama tweeted in support of boy. A month later, Ahmed met Obama during White House Astronomy Night event on the South Lawn of the White House.
The new al-Qaeda issue featured a picture of the two meeting as well as the clock bomb, with the notation: “Obama, ‘because of his sensitivity towards Muslim discrimination,’ sees an opp to further his PR by acknowledging a brilliant 14 yr old Muslim boy (who in fact even inspired us in a way).”
The Inspire issue features step-by-step photos of how to build a parcel bomb, a magnetic car bomb, and a door-trap bomb.
As The Daily Wire notes,
In recent months, Ahmed, aka Clock Boy, has done quite a lot to tear into the Leftist allegation that he’s somehow an innocent victim of big bad American racists. Actually, Ahmed has single-handedly undermined the myth of the moderate Muslim. After suing the Texas police department, he fled to Qatar, an Islamic hellhole infamous for its abuse of women and subjugation of religious minorities. So much for tolerance. When reports surfaced that Ahmed had met with Muslim Sudanese dictator Omar al-Bashir, we all thought it couldn’t get worse. Well, it did. As The Daily Wire reported, Clock Boy’s “moderate” Muslim father may actually be a 9/11 truther and anti-American agitator.
All of this comes as the White House continues to sow racial strife and propagate the false narrative of “Islamophobia.”
This tendency of our liberal overlords to side with our enemies is what enabled a demagogue to effectively secure the Republican nomination largely on the basis of noisy hostility toward Muslims.
Ahmed the Clock Boy
Lavishly rewarded by Islamophiles for his propaganda coup.

“Build a Wall” to Block ISIS

Family Security Matters

by RAYMOND IBRAHIM

 

Islamic terrorists, including ISIS operatives, are trying to use the porous border as a way to smuggle WMDs into the U.S. and launch terror attacks that would make 9/11 seem like child’s play.

Recently, “One of the American men accused in Minnesota of trying to join the Islamic State group wanted to open up routes from Syria to the U.S. through Mexico…  Guled Ali Omar told the ISIS members about the route so that it could be used to send members to America to carry out terrorist attacks, prosecutors alleged in a document.”

But ISIS didn’t need to be “told” by Ali “about the route.”  Nearly a year earlier, the Islamic State explored options on how it could smuggle a WMD “into the U.S. through Mexico by using existing trafficking networks in Latin America.”  Consider the following (currently) hypothetical scenario outlined in an article published by the Islamic State’s magazine Dabiq last May (issue #9):
