The TSA has finally admitted they were lying when they denied illegal aliens were being allowed to board planes without proper identification.

When Drudge and Breitbart reported that the “Notice to Appear” forms given to aliens entering the country were being accepted as identification to board airplanes, the TSA’s Ross Feinstein pushed back hard – saying the story was untrue.

Well, he was lying.

They lied over and over again to various media.

Finally, they couldn’t keep in the lie any longer and the truth came out in the form of an August 7 letter to Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-Tex.). The letter confirms that illegal aliens are – in fact – being permitted to board planes with just a Notice to Appear form. The Gateway Pundit reports the letter states:

“If a passenger does not have an acceptable form of identification, then the passenger is allowed to present two other forms of identification. One of the two forms of identification must bear the individual’s name and other identifying information such as photo, address, phone number, social security number, or date of birth. TSA may assess a variety of government issued documents to establish passenger identity. The I-862 form may be used along with another form of identification in this instance.”

It continued, “If a passenger can only present a Form I-862, TSA will attempt to establish the passenger’s identity through DHS partner Components, such as U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) or U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).”

Garza said Feinstein owes the American people an apology.

“Ross Feinstein and the TSA higher ups should apologize to the NBPC and to Brandon Darby for reporting the truth. … The men and women of the Border Patrol reported this very serious situation directly to the TSA managers at the Laredo International Airport, but their concerns were ignored by the TSA. Soon after that, the NBPC was notified by Border Patrol agents of what was taking place at the Laredo International Airport and how TSA was allowing illegal aliens to board planes with only a notice to appear and without verifiable identification.”

He continued, “The NBPC informed the American public of this very serious situation through a news article with Breitbart Texas Managing Director Brandon Darby. If anyone is saying the truth, it is the men and women of the Border Patrol, the NBPC and reporter Brandon Darby for reporting the truth.”

“If the TSA and Ross Feinstein were allowed to continue lying to the American Public, it could have resulted in the next terrorist attack on American soil. We hope that terrorists did not enter our country while TSA was violating these security protocols and while Ross Feinstein continued to deny their actions,” Garza said. “Shame on Ross Feisnten and the TSA for lying to the American Public and for saying that border patrol agents, the NBPC and Brandon Darby were liars.”

Did the Muslim Terrorist Group ISIS Identify a Target City in America?

August 22, 2014 By TPNN Staff Writer

Although Barack Obama downplayed the Muslim terrorist group ISIS as ‘JV’ in January of this year, their actions have shown that they are anything but. The terrorists have been leaving a bloody trail behind of victims who have been beheaded, sliced in half, or buried alive. On Tuesday, the beheaded American photojournalist James Foley. While many have said that action is an act of war against America, the Obama State Department insists that it is not.

Meanwhile, Obama is busy at the golf course, having played eight rounds in 11 days including one within 10 minutes of his 5 minute speech regarding the beheading of Foley. As he is fist bumping his buddies and high fiving, WGN in his hometown of Chicago conducting an investigation which revealed some frightening news.

A few weeks ago, a tweet was put out with the ISIS flag being displayed on a smartphone in front of the White House with the threat that they will one day fly their flag there. Obama was silent on that threat. But, WGN noticed another tweet that others did not.

On June 20, a tweet was sent out with a message being held in Arabic in front of a building. The building caught the eye of someone at the news station and, upon further investigation, they identified it as the Old Republic Building in Chicago located at 307 N. Michigan Ave.

ISIS threat
The message along with the picture states “soldiers of the Islamic state of Iraq and Syria will pass from here soon.” Other tweets add ““we are in your state/ we are in your cities / we are in your streets. You are our goals anywhere” and “we are here #america near our #target :) sooooooooooooon.”

The station notes that there is a Chicago connection between these actions by ISIS because Foley was a graduate of Northwestern University. Although they attempted to get a statement from numerous agencies and officials, no one from the security team at the Old Republic Building would comment, nor would the FBI, CIA, or the Chicago Police.

Earlier this week, TPNN reported on a flag being held at the site of one of the Ferguson riots that said, “ISIS is here.”

Despite these numerous threats on America by ISIS, Obama remains on vacation and on the golf course.

Pentagon Official: White House Foley Leak Endangers Future Operations, American Hostages

Screen Shot 2014-08-20 at 6.15.03 PM


Joseph Miller

Joseph Miller is the pen name for a ranking Department of Defense official with a background in U.S. special operations and combat experience in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has worked in strategic planning.

On Wednesday, the White House leaked a classified special forces operation to rescue American hostages in Syria. The reason: political cover. The cost: so far, unknown.

But this much, we know: The politicized leak of this operation cut through the fog of war to let our enemies know exactly what happened that day in the desert, and because of that, future attempts to free American hostages will be more difficult to plan, farther between, and more dangerous to carry out.

On Wednesday, Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby confirmed reports of the U.S. military’s failed clandestine hostage rescue operation in Syria. The operation was designed to rescue a number of Western hostages, including American journalist James Foley, that were being held by Islamic State terrorists in Syria. Details of the failed raid were leaked by senior White House officials earlier that day after the Obama administration came under intense scrutiny about what actions it had taken to free Foley following, who was beheaded . The leak was designed to provide political cover for President Barack Obama, who has been taking fire from the press for failing to take more decisive action against the Islamic State in either Iraq or Syria.

The operation involved an extremely large number of U.S. special operations forces moving over long distances. It has been described as the largest U.S. hostage rescue operation undertaken since the famed raid on the Son Tay prison camp in Vietnam – meaning it was larger in scope than the mission to free the U.S. hostages being held at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1980.

Unfortunately, the parallels between this operation and the Son Tay raid did not stop at the size and scope of the mission: Just as in Son Tay, the hostage rescue force arrived only to find that the hostages were not there.

When the hostage rescue force arrived at the target location in Syria, they encountered a handful of fighters on the ground, which they quickly neutralized. As has been previously reported, one U.S. helicopter pilot transporting the rescue force suffered a gunshot wound during the operation. He completed the entire mission before informing anyone that he had been shot. It was an act of heroism that would have gone unknown before yesterday’s leak.

Following the mission, it was determined that the Islamic State did not know that it was the United States that had conducted the raid. This was confirmed Wednesday by media outlets, who quoted the leaker saying the “[Islamic State] did not know who they were fighting that night, and we assess Syria did not know.”

As such, the decision was made to maintain absolute secrecy in the event that hostages could be located again, and another rescue operation could be undertaken. After Wednesday’s leak by the White House, this seems highly unlikely. The Islamic State is now aware that the United States is tracking the whereabouts of the Western hostages, and that the U.S. has shown a willingness to take military action to free them. They will likely increase their operational and communication security postures in order to prevent a repeat operation. (MILLER: The Facts Are In, And Obama’s Policy Is A Direct Danger To The United States)

Wednesday’s selfish, politically motivated leak has reduced the chances for a successful second rescue attempt, and has likely increased the risk to the lives of the hostages still in the Islamic State’s possession. For that, someone should be fired.

I wish I was surprised by the decision to leak information that would endanger the lives of additional hostages in order to provide the administration with a few political points, but I am not. This is par for the course for an administration that is more concerned with domestic politics and opinion polling than they are with taking the actions necessary to safeguard American national security. (MILLER: Obama’s Afghanistan Fantasy Today Is America’s Nightmare Tomorrow)

As I have predicted for several months in pieces published here at The Daily Caller, the Islamic State has grown in size and strength, and has declared the creation of an Islamic caliphate under the governance of the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi — who now goes by the name Caliph Ibrahim. The area currently under the control of the Islamic State includes large sections of territory in Iraq and Syria. It is the largest territory ever to be controlled by a terrorist organization. Every day, the area under the control of the Islamic State more closely resembles pre-9/11 Afghanistan. Every day the U.S. waits, the larger the commitment to destroy the Islamic State will be. The threat to the United States is real, as the Islamic State has both the intent and the capabilities to attack the U.S. homeland. (MILLER: An Islamic Caliphate Across Syria, Northern Iraq)

For three years, the Obama administration has sat idly by while the Islamic State grew in size and strength across the Iraqi border in neighboring Syria. In that time, Syria has become a failed state, which has allowed the Islamic State to thrive while 160,000 Syrians have been killed. Syria remains the heart of the problem. Iraq is just one of its symptoms.

Chicago A Top Terror Target; Ominous Tweet Connects ISIS Threat In City

By John Dodge
CHICAGO (CBS) — Over the past six years, Chicago has become a top potential target for international terrorists, a top security expert said Friday, making the posting of a veiled threat by Islamic radicals on Twitter a higher cause for concern.
“Many organizations refer to Chicago as Obama Town,” said CBS 2 security expert Ross Rice, a former top FBI agent in Chicago. Under President Obama, the U.S. took out Osama bin Laden, and used repeated drone strikes to weaken terror networks.
In the meantime, the U.S. government on Friday issued a security bulletin to all U.S. law enforcement in light of the overall threat posed by Islamic State, commonly known as ISIS or ISIL.
The ominous post on Twitter, purportedly from somebody connected with Islamic State, shows a photo of the Old Republic Building, 307 N. Michigan Ave., in Chicago and the White House.
The text reads:
We are in your state
We are in your cities
We are in your streets
You are our goals anywhere.

The handwritten note is dated June 20.
The security bulletin issued Friday cautioned that there is no known threat to any U.S. cities
The Twitter message seems to imply that Islamic State operatives are in Chicago and other U.S. cities.
Rice said the photo was likely taken by an American male, in his 20s or 30s, who has been radicalized by extremists via the Internet, much like the Boston Marathon bombers.
“That has been our biggest concern,” Rice said. “Individual attacks by one or two sympathizers of ISIS’ or other groups.
Islamic State is responsible for executing kidnapped journalist James Foley. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said ISIS an “imminent threat to every interest we have.”
They are well-funded, and bigger than al Qaeda ever was, Rice said.
Making things more complicated is the fact that these radicalized men are U.S. citizens or foreign nationals here legally, making it easy for them to travel and avoid suspicion.
Islamic State released a horrific video this week showing the beheading Foley, who was a graduate of Northwestern University.

Another American city is also grappling with the death of an unarmed young man at the hands of police

Written by Selwyn Duke

Black Cop Kills Unarmed White Youth — Media and Feds Silent
While Ferguson, Missouri, burns with racism and rioting, misinformation and mayhem over the Michael Brown shooting, another American city is also grappling with the death of an unarmed young man at the hands of police. The incident occurred just two days after the Ferguson event, but, unlike in that case, where a white cop shot a black youth, in this instance the races are reversed. Unlike in Ferguson, there is no allegation that the young man attacked the officer. And there is another difference:

The national media, Attorney General Holder, and Barack Obama are silent.

The young man was 20-year-old Salt Lake City resident and father-to-be Dillon Taylor. Taylor was leaving the 2102 South State Street 7-Eleven on August 11 with his brother, Jerrail Taylor, and cousin, Adam Thayne, when the incident occurred. Writes Fox 13:

According to [South Salt Lake police] Sgt. Darin Sweeten, police were called to the scene just after 7 p.m. after receiving a 911 call of a man waving a gun in the air.

When police arrived they spotted the suspect leaving the gas station with two other individuals.

According to Sweeten, the officers demanded that the suspect and the two others surrender.

The suspect did not follow orders and was shot.

Police have not confirmed whether or not the suspect had a gun or why he was shot.

The two other individuals [Jerrail Taylor and Adam Thayne] with the suspect did comply with police.

Allegations have been made, however, that Taylor was a victim of mistaken identity and, perhaps, overly-aggressive policing. As KUTV reports:

Dillon’s brother and cousin claim they were on their way to visit his parents’ graves and that Dillon was surprised by the police presence. He was not aggressive, they said.

“He had headphones in, and he couldn’t hear [anything], and then they finally surrounded him,” Jerrail said. “They’re like, ‘Get on the ground,’ and [he] pulled up his pants and [they] shot him.”

Thayne believes police might have thought his cousin was reaching for a gun when, in reality, he grabbed his cell phone.

“I was in shock, because he was wearing a white t-shirt and there was blood all over it,” Thayne said. “They ran up and handcuffed him. He wasn’t moving.”

A witness’s video shows police yelling for the two men to remain on the ground as Thayne repeatedly screams that they have shot his cousin.

The two men were taken to the police station, but released hours later without being charged or cited.

Unlike the Ferguson Police, many Salt Lake City law-enforcement officers wear body cameras, and the incident was caught on video. The video is currently being withheld, however; Police Chief Chris Burbank says that it, along with the name of the officer firing the shots, will be released at the “appropriate” time.

Whether or not Taylor actually was the suspect sought by police, he does have a checkered past. Writes WND’s Joe Kovacs, “At the time of his shooting, court documents show Taylor had a $25,000 bench warrant for a probation violation in connection with felony robbery and obstructing justice convictions.” In addition, it has surfaced that he had posted some eerie Facebook messages mere days before his death, saying that he was fighting “demons” and feared it was his “time soon.” As Kovacs also reports, however, “Marissa Martinez, whose sister used to date Taylor, told the Salt Lake Tribune that Taylor had turned over a new leaf. ‘He was trying to do better for himself. And this is what happens to him?’ Martinez said. ‘It was really heartbreaking.’”

Nonetheless, neither Taylor nor the police officer who shot him is on trial right now. Critics, however, say that something certainly should be:

The media.

Addressing media hypocrisy and the racial aspect of the story — Chief Burbank identifies the officer only as “non-white” but media outlets such as WND and Gateway Pundit are reporting he is black — American Thinker’s Thomas Lifson writes:

A brutal natural experiment is underway demonstrating the role of race, riots, and radicals in determining whose death is noted, and whose ignored in racialized America when unarmed young men are shot and killed by police. While American and world media, along with the President and Attorney General of the United States, obsess over the death of Michael Brown at the hands of the Ferguson, Missouri police, few people outside of Utah have heard of the remarkably parallel and contemporaneous death of Dillon Taylor.

On his show yesterday, radio host Rush Limbaugh also weighed in on the double standards. After saying that Taylor “didn’t resist … didn’t hit the cop … didn’t try to flee and yet he was shot dead,” Limbaugh pointed out that while the media couldn’t “wait to mention the racial aspects” in Ferguson, they suppress those aspects in the Salt Lake City case. The host then opined:

There’s a mindset out there, and the way it works in situations like this [is] only people of color can be victims. A white person can never be a victim…. The whites are the oppressors. They’re the majority. In the liberal worldview, every majority is an oppressor, whether they’re white or whatever…. The minority is always the victims, and the victims are with whom we should always sympathize, no matter what. And the victims are permitted to do anything precisely because they’re a minority….

And that’s how you have a corrupt or perverted news business in Salt Lake City, refusing to identify a black cop who may have shot an innocent person. That destroys the whole picture we’ve been creating here for centuries. That could totally destroy the image that we’ve been trying to concoct. Oh, man, that could blow it sky high…. And so they come up with these things to hide it or to not reference it at all.

Critics note another double standard, one Salt Lake City residents are, thankfully, exercising completely. While they have participated in protests demanding justice for Taylor, these have not been accompanied by rioting, looting, violence, and calls for the murder of police officers — unlike in Ferguson.

Families of those being held defended their loved ones’ decisions to travel to Syria

Up to 20 Western hostages are being held by the jihadi group that beheaded James Foley.

As well as the journalist Steven Sotloff, who was threatened with beheading by the same man who murdered Mr. Foley, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) is holding a number of aid workers, thought to include Italians Vanessa Marzullo, 21, and Greta Ramelli, 20.

Three aid workers employed by the International Committee of the Red Cross are also being held hostage after they were abducted last October.

As fears grew that ISIS could make good on its threat to murder more hostages, families of those being held defended their loved ones’ decisions to travel to Syria.

Ms. Ramelli’s mother Antonella said her daughter had been determined from an early age to look after others, starting by helping out in a retirement home when she was 12. Responding to claims that she should not have allowed her daughter to travel to Syria, Mrs. Ramelli said, “When you hear your daughter say ‘Mamma, in that country they are killing children, I must go and help,’ what can you say?”

“Can you go back on all the teaching and the values you have tried to instil for a lifetime?” she told Italian newspaper Prealpina. “Can you change your daughter, who has these values and has strong ideals about solidarity and human empathy?”

The two women went missing near Aleppo in Syria at the beginning of this month, and yesterday the Italian foreign office declined to comment on whether they were now in the hands of ISIS.

The Red Cross has not released details of the nationality, gender or age of their aid workers currently being held hostage. The three were among a group of seven who were kidnapped, four of whom were released shortly afterwards.

A doctor from East London who was previously accused of kidnapping western journalists in Syria may hold the key to identifying the jihadist who beheaded James Foley, intelligence sources have disclosed.

Shajul Islam was arrested and charged with kidnapping a British journalist, John Cantlie, in 2012 but was later released after his trial collapsed when Mr. Cantlie was unable to give evidence.

His brother Razul, 21, also travelled to Syria and is currently believed to be fighting with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS), the terrorist group which murdered Mr. Foley.

Razul Islam is understood to be on a list of British Jihadis whom the security services are comparing with the footage of Mr. Foley’s killer, a British man known as John described as the leader of a British cell of jihadists known as “The Beatles.”

A spokesman for the charity said: “Intensive efforts are ongoing behind the scenes to secure the release of the remaining three colleagues, through the ICRC’s broad network on the ground. We cannot provide details about this for the sake of the ongoing safety of our colleagues still abducted.”
Meanwhile former hostages who had been held with Mr. Foley described how he had been singled out for beatings because he was an American.

Didier Francois, a 53-year-old reporter with the French radio station Europe 1, said Mr. Foley was tortured after his captors found pictures on his computer of his brother, who works for the US Air Force.

Mr. Foley was subjected to mock executions, including one in which he was “crucified against a wall.”

Paying tribute to the American, Mr. Francois said: “He was an extraordinary guy – a companion in imprisonment who was very agreeable, very solid.”

Mr. Francois spent eight months held hostage in Syria with Mr. Foley, mostly in underground cells with no natural light.

For two-and-a-half months, Mr. Francois was chained to fellow French hostages, Nicolas Henin, Edouard Elias, and Pierre Torres. Mr. Francois said he had never spoken publicly about Mr. Foley or Mr. Sotloff before because of threats of reprisals.

Mr. Henin paid tribute to Mr. Foley, saying: “James was a very good friend and a great support. He was always there when you were feeling not so well with some kind words. He managed to make seven months of captivity easier.”

Mr. Henin, however, was skeptical about reports that a group of British jihadists nicknamed “The Beatles” were the prime culprits. “If investigators were to go in that direction, they would be misleading themselves,” he said.

Sotloff was kidnapped in August 2013 near Aleppo, Syria and was recently shown on a jihadist video in which fellow U.S. journalist James Foley was executed.
Jeroen Oerlemans, a Dutch journalist who was held hostage in Syria with a British colleague, John Cantlie, for nine days last year before the two men were freed, said Mr. Foley had worked tirelessly trying to secure their release.

He said: “The colleague with whom I was abducted was good friends with James. When we missed our appointment with him, somewhere in Syria, alarm bells immediately went off for Foley. He pulled back across the border to Turkey, and put all his journalistic contacts gathering information on us.”

When the two men were freed by opposition forces, he said: “James was the first to hug me. I did not know him, but because he had been so closely involved with our liberation he knew me well.”

Mr. Oerlemans decided Syria was too dangerous to return to, saying: “You must know very well who you go into business with, your contacts must be 100% reliable. And even then, James was hugely experienced and had those contacts. Yet it happened to him.”

Claim is yet to be independently verified.

by THE SHIA POST | AUGUST 22, 2014

As the US has warned that it would be intensifying its campaign against Islamic State insurgents in the wake of the beheading of American journalist James Foley, the militant group’s chief Abu Bakr al-Bagdadi is reported to have fled Iraq for Syria.

A senior Kurdish official has been quoted as saying that al-Bagdadi escaped as part of a convoy on 10 August.

Said Zinni, a spokesperson for the Kurdistan Democratic Party, told the World Tribune: “According to our intelligence sources, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi travelled to Syria as part of a convoy of 30 Hummer vehicles after fearing being targeted by US airstrikes.”

The claim is yet to be independently verified.

Kurdish officials suspect al-Baghdadi, the self-proclaimed Islamic caliph, has been forced to flee after the killing of many top commanders of the insurgent group in the ongoing US offensive.

Al-Baghdadi was believed to have been operating from Mosul, the first city captured by the takfiri extremists in Iraq.
The US has been pressing ahead with its aerial offensive in the northern parts of Iraq in coordination with Kurdish Peshmerga ground forces which are being equipped with weapons by Nato members.

The attacks are reported to have forced IS to move some of its fighters from northern Iraq to areas in Syria.

“Whoever has authorisation from ISIL is transferred to areas near Mosul. Others are sent to the fighting in Syria after three days of military training at the Kindi training camp,” a Kurdish security source was quoted as saying by World Tribune.
