Prior to Bergdahl’s disappearance, Obama planned to release al-Qaeda-linked fighters to empty out Gitmo

by KIT DANIELS 

President Obama originally wanted to release the “Taliban Five” as part of a largely one-sided exchange to empty out Guantanamo Bay and only asked for Bergdahl in return after he met resistance from the intelligence community, according to a report cross-checked with other documents.

The president initially only asked the Taliban to open a “political office” in Qatar to “conduct peace negotiations” in exchange for the five prisoners, but had to modify the deal to include Bergdahl to appease intelligence officials, the Investor’s Business Daily stated in a report that’s plausible when cross-referenced with a 2009 executive order and a 2012 article reporting on Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai.

On Jan. 22, 2009, five months before Bergdahl found himself on Taliban captivity, President Obama signed Executive Order 13492 to launch the “review and disposition” of Gitmo prisoners, including the Taliban Five, as part of a process to ultimately close the facility.

“Bergdahl, who walked off his post and into the arms of the Taliban in June 2009, wasn’t even part of the negotiation back then,” the IBD stated. “The original deal was a one-sided release, naked any trade for a ‘POW’ or ‘hostage’ or soldier who allegedly had served ‘with honor and distinction.’”

A 2012 news article on the proposed prisoner release also alluded to a one-sided exchange when reporting on a statement from then-President Karzai asking for the release of the Gitmo prisoners.

“Karzai made the statement to journalists gathered at a press conference in Tokyo on Sunday, responding to a question as to whether he felt the US should release the prisoners to Qatar – an earlier plan,” TOLOnews.com reported.

Interestingly, the article makes no mention of Bergdahl.

“Truth is, Obama used Bergdahl as a pretext for doing what he always sought to do — empty out Gitmo, national security be damned,” the IBD added. “The freed Taliban leaders were among the nearly 40 prisoners at Gitmo classified as ‘indefinite detainees’ — too dangerous to release.”

“To shutter the Cuban prison, Obama first had to whittle down that list, starting with the Taliban Five.”

The Obama administration only seemed truly motivated to save Bergdahl from captivity last year after the White House accidentally revealed the head of CIA operations in Afghanistan, five years after Bergdahl’s disappearance.

That, of course, poses the question whether Bergdahl was actually an embedded intelligence asset who was endangered by the White House screw-up, which would explain why a modified prisoner swap that included Bergdahl would meet less resistance from intelligence officials.

Raising Children to be Soldiers of Allah

“Moreover [the children’s] mindset [in the Islamic Madrasa education] is nurtured with a message of hatred towards all non-Muslim communities… Islam is the only true religion, all other religions are false — this is what they are taught from the beginning by the Madrasa teacher. They also chant nonstop the mantra that all nonbelievers (in Islam) are Kafirs and infidels fit to be destroyed by all true Muslims.” — Shudhansu S. Tunga, author of A 20 Million Billion Trillion Dollar Loss: The Story of India’s Downslide Independence.

In such a small land as Bangladesh, roughly the size of the U.S. state of Iowa, there are 15,000 officially registered madrasas, accompanied by 200,000 teachers “teaching” four million “students.” If one adds to it the number of unregistered madrasas, the number is as high as 64,000.

“Bangladesh is appeasing the most insidious and violent strains of Islam… That appeasement of theocratic demands and naked threats must end, now.” — Bob Churchill, Director of Communications, International Humanist and Ethical Union.

One can imagine from the number of madrasas and mosques — abetted by a government that turns a blind eye to lawlessness — how many people listening to hate preaching are now being raised to be “Soldiers of Allah.”

Dissent is not tolerated in the monolithic Islamic society of Bangladesh. Extremist Islamic forces not only vandalize the idols and temples of the Hindus or Buddhists, they are also kill anyone who speaks out against radicalization or Islamization.

The extremist Islamic forces mostly target university teachers, engineers, writers and bloggers, one after another — whoever is not in total accord with their faith, including anyone secular-minded.

Notably, it was after the founding the International Islamic Front for Jihad in 1998, that Bangladesh experienced the first major attack conducted by Islamists, on March 6, 1999. It killed 10 and critically injured 105 innocent people who were listening to music at a cultural program organized by Udichi, a secular cultural organization.

Since then, many terrorist attacks have taken place in Bangladesh. Nonetheless, the country’s politicians do not take initiatives to prevent Islamic radicalization, presumably in fear of displeasing the country’s huge Muslim populace. Rather, every incoming government not only winks and nods the Islamists, but also provides room to nurture extremism. Bangladesh, a country roughly size of the U.S. state of Iowa, has 15,000 officially registered Madrasas [Islamic religious schools], accompanied by 200,000 teachers “teaching” four million “students.” If one adds to it the number of unregistered madrasas, the number is as high as 64,000.

It is no secret anymore that the madrasa is the main extremist breeding factory. Shudhansu S. Tunga writes,

“Frankly, the Madrasa education instead of uplifting the Muslim boys and girls, is keeping them downgraded on many points, especially to face today’s job market competition. Moreover, their mindset is nurtured with a message of hatred towards all non-Muslim communities. This is the gravest of dangers not only for the future of the Muslims but also for the whole mankind. Islam is the only true religion, all other religions are false─ this is what they are taught from the beginning by the Madrasa teacher. They also chant nonstop the mantra that all non-believers (in Islam) are Kafirs and infidels fit to be destroyed by all true Muslims.”[1]

In such a small land, there are also 250,399 mosques where believers are being summoned to hate non-Muslims. They especially curse the Jews by using the anti-Semitic Koranic verses and the widely read hadiths.

Bangladesh is now one of the most dangerous places for a dissident to live. Murders this year include Samiulla Afridi and Avijit Roy.

Samiulla Afridi, the lawyer who represented Dr. Shakil Afridi (no relation), was shot dead on March 17. Dr. Shakil Afridi had conducted a vaccination program to help the Central Intelligence Agency locate Usama bin Laden. Samiulla Afridi’s murder was presumably retribution for having represented the doctor, whom the US let remain in a Pakistani jail.

Avijit Roy, an American citizen of Bangladeshi origin, who had a PhD in software engineering from Singapore, was hacked to death on March 17 after attending a book fair with his wife, also wounded in the attack. Roy, an engineer, was also the author of several books on science, atheism and freedom of expression. He was the founder of Mukto-Mona [“Free Mind”] blog, and well known for his writings which opposed religious fundamentalism. No one of course has been caught. It is not known if anyone has even looked for the perpetrators of both crimes.

J”Those who made the most credible threats on Roy’s life have been allowed to do so with impunity, and now he is dead. As Roy himself warned, Bangladesh is appeasing the most insidious and violent strains of Islamism, and he knew his own life was under threat. That appeasement of theocratic demands and naked threats must end, now.”The Director of Communications of the International Humanist and Ethical Union, Bob Churchill, said,

In an emotional piece in The Guardian, Alom Shaha writes,

“It is a land of lush green fields nourished by brightly burning sun. This is what is depicted on the nation’s flag, a design that rejects the religious symbolism found in those of India and Pakistan — the latter of which Bangladesh fought a bitter war of independence, partly so it could become a secular state. But that early commitment has been betrayed and instead Bangladesh has become a nation where those promoting secular values can expect to live their lives in fear, be threatened with death, and even brutally killed.”

Avijit Roy was not the first victim targeted by the Islamists in Bangladesh. Last year, Ahmed Rajib Haider, an architect by profession, was also hacked to death by machete-wielding attackers from an Islamist militant group, Ansarullah Bangla Team. It takes its ideology from Yemen, based on statements from the Al-Qaeda ideologue, Anwar Al-Awlaki, and associated with the Jamaat-E-Islami party in Bangladesh.

The same group attacked another blogger, Asif Mohiuddin, who through his writings opposed the Quranic chapter 4, verse 34, which says, “A man can beat his wife, if she does not obey her husband.”

Mohiuddin, also involved with Mukto-Mona blog, was arrested by the Bangladeshi authorities for “hurting religious beliefs.”

Professor Humayun Azad was an esteemed university teacher, and one of the most prominent scholars in the country. On February 27, 2004, Islamists attacked him him with machete; he narrowly escaped death. But on August 11, 2004, he was found dead in his apartment in Munich, Germany, where he had arrived a week earlier to conduct a research on the German poet, Heinrich Heine.

Bangladeshi militants have had longstanding relations with Al-Qaeda and its leaders, including Osama Bin Laden and Ayman Al Zawahiri. According to reports, Bangladesh’s first openly-formed Islamist militant outfit, Harkat-ul-Jihad (Huji), is closely linked with Al-Qaeda. Huji emerged from a group of Bangladeshi Afghan war veterans, who had gone to Afghanistan and joined with mujaheedin [“jihad warriors”], addressed the press conference.

There are reports that Bin Laden, in February 1998, came up with a coalition of Islamic militants named “International Islamic Front for Jihad against the Jews and Crusaders” to fight against the U.S. Among five coalition founders, one of the Bangladeshi militants and Zawahiri were signatories of a statement, issued in February 1998.

Major Gen (Ret). Abdur Rashid, a Bangladeshi security analyst, said, “Many Bangladeshi militants had visited or re-visited Afghanistan through Pakistan and maintained the links established earlier. The communication between them became easier with the availability of internet.”

One can imagine from the number of madrasas and mosques — abetted by a government that turns a blind eye to lawlessness — how many people listening to hate preaching are now being raised to be “Soldiers of Allah.”

Islam’s Kamikaze Pilots & The Lying Media: A Match Made In Allah’s Hell. What’s To Be Done? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Screen Shot 2015-03-28 at 3.47.09 PM

FOLKS, truthfully, is there a person who can honestly state that he (or she) never met a colleague, neighbor, friend or relative who hasn’t been depressed, especially at a difficult point in their life? But like everything else, some depressions are chronic, while others are fleeting. We get that. 

REGARDLESS, most have a hard time believing that a lock-step media would latch onto this mental health issue as if it is their life-rafts – all in order to avoid a more horrifying truth – which also entails disobeying their leftist masters. Heaven forfend. Cowards.

AGREED, severely depressed people commit suicide (more often than most) and have been known to kill others alongside themselves, including their families. But when was the last time that a so-called depressed individual took down an ENTIRE plane to that end? Never happened. Had this been the case, rest assured, it would have made headlines.

YES, even if certain “sick notes” can “prove” that Andreas Lubitz, the German co-pilot, had bouts of depression, so what? This proves absolutely nothing, other than that he was part of a large pool of people who had depressive thoughts. 

MOVING right along….

THE core issue revolves around the so-called elephant in the room…the monkey on the back…the 800 pound gorilla too. Resultant, this investigative journalist is duty bond to set the (media) record straight:

IN this regard, let’s revert back to a previous commentary, one which this site exposed as the “legacy” of ISLAM’s Kamikazi pilots! But one may rightfully inquire: what does this have to do with the German co-pilot’s take down? Patience, dear readers…

BUT few can argue – aside from the willfully blind and the ideologically malignant – that certain ISLAMIC explosions have more “bang for the buck”, so to speak. In fact, the downing of passenger aircraft has always been their main goal, and they have been working non-stop for a repeat 9/11/01….a “spectacular” attack!

NEUROTMESIS: Cutting the Nerves & Isolating the Head

نيوروتمسيس: قطع الأعصاب وفصل الرأس

In 1999, a Muslim Kamikaze Jihad pilot named Gamil el-Batouty killed 217 people when he commandeered EgyptAir Flight 990 which crashed off the coast of New England. El-Batouty was heard saying several times during the plane’s descent, “I rely on Allah” in Arabic. A 2002 report from the Guardian didn’t point out the possibility that el-Batouty’s religion may have played a role, only that he was seeking revenge for being reprimanded for sexual misconduct.

Screen Shot 2015-03-28 at 3.48.40 PM

Like Iriyanto, el-Batouty had also been an Air Force pilot for his country. A 2012 article that was published in the Atlantic included the following excerpt:

Experts informed viewers of Egyptian television that it was impossible for el Batouty to have taken his own life because he was a good Muslim and suicide is haram (forbidden) in Islam.

For the record, all 19 hijackers on 9/11 considered themselves “good” Muslims who were committing suicide while killing infidels. As we have learned, the fundamentalist tactic known as Muruna even permits the killing of other Muslims in the process if it serves a greater “good”.

Here is a video which shows a timeline for Flight 990:

https://youtu.be/F8G08hwlDjQ

What the Evidence Shows

When it comes to modern day Islamic terrorism on western airlines, it can be argued that the modern era began in 1985 with the hijacking of TWA Flight 847. This airline wasn’t commandeered to commit suicide and mass murder; such a tactic hadn’t been implemented yet. Though terrorists took control of the plane, they simply forced the pilot to land in Beirut before making their demands.

While the hijackers did murder a U.S. service member named Robert Stethem before dumping his body off the plane, they didn’t yet have aspirations to be martyred in such operations. There were also survivors.

Screen Shot 2015-03-28 at 3.53.45 PM

It can therefore be logically concluded that when it comes to modern day Kamikaze jihad, it’s ironic that individuals like Seiji Katagiri can be excluded. He should not be included in the post 1985 era. As for candidates that qualify as modern day Muslim Jihad Kamikazes…

Until more information can be gleaned – which SHOULD be readily available – about Santos Fernandes, it can be assumed that his name does not lend itself to Kamikaze Jihad. Since Fernandes falls within the window of modern day Kamikaze Jihad, his incident shall be considered an outlier. It’s worth noting that since 1994, the only incident of possible pilot suicide / mass murder that doesn’t appear to have a Muslim connection involves Fernandes. He is not on this list primarily because his name indicates he was not a Muslim. However, little is publicly known about him and an Islamic motive cannot officially be ruled out.

BACK to last week’s German jihad….

Screen Shot 2015-03-28 at 3.54.54 PM

(Facebook photo, February 2013)

AS discomfiting as it is to western hearts and minds, let’s face some horrifying truths:

WHEN mass shootings occur in the west, it is hardly the case that jihadists proclaim they are direct acts of ISLAMIC jihad on their behalf. While joyful at infidel deaths, even they have to admit that said tragedies are unrelated to ISLAMIC jihad, insistent that the west’s “decadence” is the culprit. No matter, they always feign that they are completely immune from mass murder and related mayhem! We know better….

BE that as it may, Andreas Lubitz was a convert to Islam, as such, we must also recognize that many “newbies” become radicalized to the point that even those born into Islam are, by comparison, considered tame. Yup. Have mercy.

TO wit, let’s cut to the chase:

According to Michael Mannheimer, a writer for German PI-News, Germany now has its own 9/11, thanks to the convert to Islam, Andreas Lubitz.

Translation from German:

All evidence indicates that the copilot of Airbus machine in his six-months break during his training as a pilot in Germanwings, converted to Islam and subsequently either by the order of “radical”, ie. devout Muslims , or received the order from the book of terror, the Quran, on his own accord decided to carry out this mass murder. As a radical mosque in Bremen is in the center of the investigation, in which the convert was staying often, it can be assumed that he – as Mohammed Atta, in the attack against New York – received his instructions directly from the immediate vicinity of the mosque.

Converts are the most important weapon of Islam. Because their resume do not suggests that they often are particularly violent Muslims. Thus Germany now has its own 9/11, but in a reduced form. And so it is clear that Islam is a terrorist organization that are in accordance with §129a of the Criminal Code to prohibit it and to investigate its followers. But nothing will happen. One can bet that the apologists (media, politics, “Islamic Scholars”) will agree to assign this an act of a “mentally unstable” man, and you can bet that now, once again the mantra of how supposedly peaceful Islam is will continue. And worse still, the attacks by the left against those who have always warned against Islam, will be angrier and merciless.

For now the German Islam supporters like never before have their backs against the wall.

Michael Mannheimer, 26.3.2015

The Daily Mail today writes:

Police investigating the Germanwings crash said tonight they had made a ‘significant discovery’ at the home of pilot Andreas Lubitz, who deliberately ploughed the Airbus A320 into the French Alps.

Officers refused to reveal details of the potential breakthrough but said it was not a suicide note.

BOTTOM LINE:

THE question becomes: despite the braying of ISLAMISTS and leftists, will western nations allow Muslim pilots (whether converts or not) to fly for their carriers, be it a major airline or a smaller outfit?

MORE specifically, this western imperative would absolutely involve the dreaded bugaboo, “profiling”. Oh dear…imagine that, a pilot’s religious background should be a consideration for hiring! In other words, while such a safety measure should be as important as any other pre-flight (mechanical) precaution, countless leftists in positions of power would prefer to sacrifice as many westerners as it takes, rather than to dare to question another’s “religious” convictions. Oh, really now?

A lot of profiling restrictions are stupid, but in this case religion is the motivation. Banning profiling of perpetrators by their motives is a sure way of crippling investigations…..

The Justice Department will significantly expand its definition of racial profiling to prohibit federal agents from considering religion, national origin, gender and sexual orientation in their investigations, a government official said Wednesday.

The Bush administration banned profiling in 2003, but with two caveats: It did not apply to national security cases, and it covered only race, not religion, ancestry or other factors.

Since taking office, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. has been under pressure from Democrats in Congress to eliminate those provisions.

It is not clear whether Mr. Holder also intends to make the rules apply to national security investigations, which would further respond to complaints from Muslim groups.

“Adding religion and national origin is huge,” said Linda Sarsour, advocacy director for the National Network for Arab American Communities. “But if they don’t close the national security loophole, then it’s really irrelevant.”

The Justice Department has been reviewing the rules for several years and has not publicly signaled how it might change them. Mr. Holder disclosed his plans in a meeting on Wednesday with Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York, according to an official briefed on the meeting who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the conversation was private.

Bloomberg, as bad as he was, might have objected, but Bill de Blasio is on the same page as Holder when it comes to empowering terrorists.

THUS, in the same manner in which a deep background check is requisite due diligence for certain positions, isn’t the fact that pilots are responsible for so many lives a more than qualifying factor? If not, why not? 

AND as to finding this intel out, as to what’s what in said applicant’s background – particularly those whose names miss the (ISLAMIC) mark, similar to the recent convert’s act of jihad – well, there are many qualified agencies whose jobs are to perform this and that background check. But just in case certain outfits need some assistance, just give this site a shout out and high level investigators will be in touch. Promise.

BUT as always, expect the leftist captured media to deny, deny and deny the absolute connection between the German pilot’s devotion to Islam and Kamikaze Jihad.

UNLESS western civilization promptly comes to grips with the growing phenomenon of Muslim Kamikaze Jihad – as should have sunk in, especially after 9/11/01, less than 14 years ago – we must expect an increase in the number of Muslim commercial airline pilots. Guaranteed. Extrapolating further, as that number increases, we can also expect a concomitant increase in the number of Muslim Kamikaze Jihad attacks. A + B…1 + 1…

SIMPLE as that. Deadly.

Libya, Syria, Yemen: Sectarian conflict threatens entire Middle East

Screen Shot 2015-03-26 at 6.20.11 PM

A coalition of 10 Sunni Arab states is on a military offensive against Shiite Houthi militants in Yemen, recently proclaimed by America’s president as a brilliant example of war on terror, but now catapulting the Middle East into the inferno of battle.

Saudi Arabia has initiated an international military operation in Yemen that many experts are already calling a proxy war against Iran, since Houthi fighters are believed to have strategic backup from Tehran.

The internal Yemeni conflict has the potential to transform into a military standoff based on religious background between the Sunni monarchies of the Persian Gulf on one side and Shiites of the region supported by Iran on the other.

The coalition is bombing a country that used to have heavy American presence for years, since Washington used to station a fleet of assault UAVs in Yemen, waging drone warfare against militants of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

Screen Shot 2015-03-26 at 6.23.51 PM

“This strategy of taking out terrorists who threaten us, while supporting partners on the frontlines, is one that we have successfully pursued in Yemen and Somalia for years,” said Obama as recently as September 10, 2014.

This longstanding fruitful cooperation between Sanaa and Washington has had a bitter ending, as Houthi fighters captured Yemen’s major cities and are offering a reward for US-backed President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, while the US were forced to evacuate its embassy from Yemen along with diplomatic missions of other western countries in early February.

Screen Shot 2015-03-26 at 6.24.49 PM

Yemen’s territory has become increasingly fragmented, with Sunni militant groups operating in the south of the country and AQAP becoming active again.

The base with deployed US killer drones remained operable until last week, when it was abandoned like all other US installations in the country.

The developments in Yemen have drawn attention to Obama’s policy of dealing with terrorism hot-beds around the world from Republican Senators John Mc Cain and Lindsey Graham.

They rebuked the Obama administration over Yemen’s descent into a regional proxy war threatening to engulf the Middle East, calling it “another tragic case of leading from behind.”

Yemen now in many ways resembles Libya, disintegrating after foreign intervention, or Syria, devastated by years of civil war, as fighter jets of the Saudi Arabia-led coalition are pouncing Yemeni military installations and infrastructure facilities.

The meltdown in Yemen is causing embarrassment in Washington, editor of the Pan-African News Wire, Abayomi Azikiwe, told RT.

“It is a very dangerous situation. What it represents is a total collapse of the US foreign policy in Yemen,” Azikiwe said, stressing that it was “clearly miscalculation” on the part of the Obama administration, which underestimated power of Houthi groups.

“It is clearly a failure of the US foreign policy in Yemen,” he said.

The US withdrawal from Yemen has revealed a massive property lost, as the US government is believed to have lost track of about $500 million worth of military aid provided to Yemen in recent years, beginning in 2007.

Officials acknowledge that they’re unable to account for more than a million rounds of ammunition, 160 Humvees (HMMWV) vehicles, 200 M-4 assault rifles and 250 body armor suits – and this is far from being the full inventory of lost property.

The US has no intention of stabilizing other nations, retired US Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Karen Kwiatkowski told RT.

“What the US government is focused on is putting arms out there and creating bias for those arms. The US taxpayer subsidizes foreign weapon sales. So we’re always out there, our government is always out there looking for places to market our weapons,” Kwiatkowski said. US foreign policy is aimed at creating markets for the US weaponry and is good at it, not at solving crises, promoting good governments etc.

“That’s not our expertise. We don’t spend time and money on that. We spend time and money on creating consumers for our weapons,” she said.

Meantime Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Sudan, Pakistan, Morocco, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Bahrain are bombing Yemeni territory using mostly US-made weapons and hardware, with a proclaimed objective to prevent President Hadi from losing power.

“We will do whatever it takes in order to protect the legitimate government of Yemen from falling,” Saudi Arabia’s ambassador in Washington, Adel al-Jubeir, told a news conference while announcing the operation.

After the Iran’s advances in Iraq – which borders Saudi Arabia to the north – the kingdom is worried that Yemen, on its southern frontier, is going to become a proxy for Iran as well.

“In the absence of the Americans, who have temporarily quit the field, the Saudi’s will think they have no choice but to go in pretty hard. We are going to see redesign of the region,” President of the Australia Institute of International Affairs John McCarthy told Reuters.

The key to the unwinding military conflict is going to be reaction of Iran, which has its finger in many ongoing conflicts in the Middle East.

If Tehran decides to play big, oil exports from the region – crucial to the world economy – could fall victim to the regional conflict. That in turn will threaten energy supplies of many countries, particularly China, Japan and South Korea.

Obama-backed rebels in Yemen loot secret U.S. files about spy operations

Screen Shot 2015-03-26 at 11.15.31 AM

Why is the Obama administration deliberately leaking our most sensitive documents to our worst enemies? Where were the burn bags, etc.? This isn’t incompetence. It’s treason. How many spies and key people will be targeted for assassination with this treasure trove of US intel in the hands of the enemy?

The only safe secrets are Benghazi, his treacherous nuke deal, his perfidy in the Israeli elections, the IRS scandals, spying on Americans  ….

Over the weekend, US Special Forces, “the world’s most talented, capable and toughest special operations forces got the heck out of Dodge” — on orders from above, of course.

According to WaPo, the Pentagon is unable to account for more than $500 million in U.S. military aid given to Yemen. It’s in the hands of the enemy

Not a few months ago, Obama touted Yemen as his “success story.”

Iran-backed rebels seize secret files about U.S. counter-terrorism operations in Yemen

An intelligence loss hampers U.S. efforts to target Al Qaeda’s most powerful franchise in Yemen

Secret files held by Yemeni security forces that contain details of American intelligence operations in the country have been looted by Iran-backed militia leaders, exposing names of confidential informants and plans for U.S.-backed counter-terrorism strikes, U.S. officials say.

U.S. intelligence officials believe additional files were handed directly to Iranian advisors by Yemeni officials who have sided with the Houthi militias that seized control of Sana, the capital, in September, which led the U.S.-backed president to flee to Aden.

For American intelligence networks in Yemen, the damage has been severe. Until recently, U.S. forces deployed in Yemen had worked closely with President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi’s government to track and kill Al Qaeda operatives, and President Obama had hailed Yemen last fall as a model for counter-terrorism operations elsewhere.

But the identities of local agents were considered compromised after Houthi leaders in Sana took over the offices of Yemen’s National Security Bureau, which had worked closely with the CIA and other intelligence agencies, according to two U.S. officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive operations.

Yemeni intelligence officers still loyal to Hadi’s besieged government burned some secret files, one official said. But they couldn’t destroy all of them before the Houthi fighters, whose leaders have received some weapons and training from Iran, moved in.

The loss of the intelligence networks, in addition to the escalating conflict, contributed to the Obama administration’s decision to halt drone strikes in Yemen for two months, to vacate the U.S. Embassy in Sana last month and to evacuate U.S. special operations and intelligence teams from a Yemeni air base over the weekend.

The Houthis claimed Wednesday that they had captured that air base, Al Anad, as new fighting broke out in and around the southern seaport of Aden, the country’s financial hub, where Hadi had taken refuge. Over the weekend, the Houthis seized the central city of Taizz.

A Houthi-controlled TV channel announced a $20-million bounty for Hadi’s capture, and his Aden compound was hit by airstrikes.

Foreign Minister Riad Yassin said Hadi was overseeing the city’s defense from an undisclosed safe location. The Associated Press reported that he had fled the country on a boat.

Jen Psaki, the State Department spokeswoman, said that U.S. diplomats “were in touch” with Hadi early Wednesday and that he later “voluntarily” left his residence. She said she could not confirm whether he was still in the country, calling conditions there “incredibly volatile.”

As the turmoil deepened, Yemen appeared to be descending into a civil war that could ignite a wider regional struggle.

Saudi Arabia launched airstrikes against Iran-backed militias in Yemen to bolster the positions of the Yemeni government against the rapid advance of the Shiite militias, the Saudi ambassador to the U.S. said Wednesday.

The objective of the airstrikes is to “defend the legitimate government” of Yemen and prevent the takeover of Yemen by Houthi militias, Ambassador Adel al Jubeir told reporters at the Saudi Embassy in Washington.

Saudi Arabia reportedly moved troops, armored vehicles and artillery to secure its border with Yemen, which sits alongside key shipping routes.

After suicide bombers killed 137 worshipers at two Shiite mosques in Sana on Friday, a previously unknown group that said it was allied with Islamic State claimed responsibility. That stirred fear that the extremist group had expanded to Yemen, adding a new threat to the quickly fragmenting country.

TSA ALLOWS CONVICTED BOMBER THROUGH EXPEDITED SCREENING

Agency accepts convicted terrorist Sara Jane Olson into the Pre-Check program

BY KIT DANIELS

The TSA allowed convicted terrorist bomber Sara Jane Olson to pass through expedited screening at a Minn. airport, despite knowing her criminal background.

The incident occurred at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport back in 2014, according to a TSA Inspector General Report and a KMSP-TV investigation which confirmed Olson as the “notorious convicted felon” described in the report.

A TSA agent recognized Olson, who served seven years in prison for planting bombs under police cars, but when he notified his supervisor he was told to “take no further action and allow the traveler through the TSA Pre-Check lane.”

The TSA should have declared Olson ineligible for expedited screening, the report stated.

However, the report, which is heavily redacted, does not reveal why Olson was allowed into the Pre-Check program.

We reported on a similar incident in 2014 when the TSA, on orders from the State Dept., spared the Muslim Brotherhood from pat downs and other security measures despite the group’s close ties to al-Qaeda.

One member of the Brotherhood delegation was even under investigation for child pornography but still received VIP treatment while traveling through America’s airports.

None of this is really that shocking considering the TSA is more interested in conditioning the public to obey authority than providing real security.

The TSA even admitted the invasive body scanners and pat downs are ineffective at stopping a threat of which the agency admits “there is no evidence.”

“…Both the nude body scanners and the pat-downs are more extensive and intensive than necessary to detect non-metallic explosives in light of available alternatives,” reads a Statement of Argument for a court case regarding the TSA’s security practices. “Additionally, they are ineffective at addressing the threat at hand and are incredibly invasive, which is to be balanced against the risk of a threat for which the TSA has admitted there is no evidence.”

“Accordingly, both procedures are independently unconstitutional.”

But that hasn’t stopped the TSA from molesting the American public while treating terrorists like royalty.

Ivy League Dean Welcomes ISIS Club To Campus [UNDERCOVER VIDEO] *(IS THIS FOR REAL?)*

In the latest undercover sting operation from investigative filmmaker James O’Keefe, an assistant dean at Cornell University has advised a journalist posing as a Moroccan student all about how to launch a campus club with the express intent of supporting ISIS.

The Ivy League administrator, Joseph Scaffido, also provides counsel on how to fund the pro-Islamist militant club so it can send “care packages, whether it be food, water, electronics” to ISIS and Hamas — both terrorist organizations, according to the State Department.

Scaffido even lays out how the club can bring an ISIS “freedom fighter to come and do like a training camp for students.”

It’s easy!

“You would be allowed to do something like that. It’s just like bringing in a coach, to do a training, a sports trainer or something,” the Cornell official said.

Concerning Hamas, the Cornell official explained: “The University is not going to look at different groups and say ‘you are not allowed to support that group’ because we don’t believe in them or something like that. I think it’s just the opposite. I think the University wants the entire community to understand what’s going on in all parts of the world.”

O’Keefe’s Project Veritas captured the March 16 encounter on hidden video.
“I think it is fair to say that at the very least Cornell owes the American people an explanation, if not an apology,” O’Keefe said in an online statement released Tuesday.

The New York Post contacted Cornell for a statement on its openhearted approach to terrorist groups.

“Cornell fully supports the free exchange of ideas and does not review or control the political ideology of our students,” Cornell spokesman Joel Malina told the Post. “We do not, of course, tolerate unlawful advocacy of violence, and the comment about training by ISIS freedom fighters does not reflect university policy.”

ISIS (also called the Islamic State) has called for mass enslavement of its long list of enemies.

“We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women,” Sheikh Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, chief spokesman for the Islamic State, threatened in a fairly recent message directed at no one in particular in the Western world. “If we do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.” (RELATED: ISIS Yearns To Be North Korea And Nine More Things You Won’t Believe About These LUNATICS)

While Dartmouth College will always be America’s most hopelessly and disturbingly fragile Ivy League school, Cornell is certainly gunning for the top.

In 2013, for example, an unnamed former Cornell employee gave a notably anti-gay sermon accompanying a Muslim Friday prayer on campus. “Homosexuals are freaks and queers who want a pink earth,” he preached. He also condemned Muslim women who remove their head scarf after praying. (RELATED: Ivy League Muslim Prayer Service Filled With Homophobic Invective)

And last year, Cornell history professor Russell Rickford urged white students to commit “race suicide” in a lecture in response to the death of Michael Brown and the riots in Ferguson, Mo. (RELATED: Ivy League Professor Praises White People Who Are ‘Ready To Commit Race Suicide’)
