GUANTANAMO BAY – JUSTICE DELAYED

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

 

These terrorists  are captured enemy combatants and should be dressed in orange jump suits, not the flamboyant Muslim head dresses and costumes that they wear to make a mockery of their trial.  Our justice system at Guantanamo should be just and swift and not the circus that is exposed in this article.  Camp Justice, indeed !!!  Nancy

Justice Delayed at Guantanamo Bay

Paralyzed by endless litigation over procedure, the 9/11 war-crimes commission grinds on.

Guantanamo Bay, Cuba

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, mastermind of 9/11, arrives in court dressed in a headdress, tunic and short white trousers (strict fundamentalist style, purportedly emulating Muhammad). His overgrown beard is dyed orange. He sits smugly, legs dangling, and talks with his attorneys while prosecutors play video footage of the Twin Tower attacks in the ultrasecure courtroom.

Walid bin Attash, who helped select and train hijackers, and Ramzi bin al Shibh, a member of al Qaeda’s Hamburg cell, wear camouflage jackets and headdresses, as if they were still in the Afghan mountains. But the camo is hunting gear from Sears—the Guantanamo Military Commission won’t let them wear anything realistic enough to be confused with the guards’ uniforms.

Ammar al Baluchi, KSM’s nephew and a courier for Osama bin Laden, dresses like a prince in a fictional epic: maroon, fez-like headcap, fancy, dark velvet vest. A richly embroidered prayer rug is slung over the back of his chair.

Mustafa al Hawsawi, a money man, looks like a martyr dressed for the grave, in white linen and a shawl embroidered with Palestinian flags. One way or another, all five are projecting versions of the fantasies common to radical Islamists.

This weeklong December hearing, which I attended as an observer, marked the U.S. government’s first formal presentation of evidence against the five living men most culpable for 9/11. It came during the fifth year of pretrial motions. The trial, now projected to take place in 2019, will no doubt be followed by many appeals. By the time it’s over, justice will have been delayed by decades.

In the courtroom, it wasn’t hard to see why. Start with the rules, which Congress, the Supreme Court and two administrations each had a hand in shaping. The Guantanamo trial procedures are, with a few exceptions, supposed to be as close as possible to those in courts-martial. As a result, every procedural niggle is litigated from the ground up, with no controlling precedents. The rules aim to keep the trial moving by allowing hearsay evidence, and to avoid the controversy over “torture” by excluding evidence obtained via contested interrogation methods. But in the constant litigation over procedure, defense attorneys can fight the former and keep the latter front and center.

  And whereas the decisions of other war-crimes tribunals have been final or nearly so, three Washington-based courts—the Court of Military Commission Review, the Circuit Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court—will all hear appeals from Gitmo. With a trial this complex, that structure guarantees extensive litigation after the trial and overcaution now.

Intelligence bureaucracy protocols have complicated the administration of justice. After a defense lawyer allegedly mishandled a piece of classified evidence, a JAG major stammered to the court that it would take a year to resolve the matter through the bureaucracy, during which the trial would stop. The flabbergasted judge compelled an agency head to appear in court and speed things up.

The week I visited, a veteran prosecutor made a hash of an important motion. Mr. al Hawsawi’s attorneys argued that under the law of war, there wasn’t enough sustained fighting between the U.S. and al Qaeda to meet the definition of “hostilities,” before or even on 9/11, and therefore the court has no authority to try the defendants. Supporting this premise was a defense expert witness, a professor of international law.

The government hadn’t called its own international-law expert, and when the prosecutor rose to cross-examine this witness, he ran into a buzzsaw of objections, which the judge cuts short after 12 minutes with a mercy lunch break. In the afternoon, the judge had to intervene to ask the key questions: Wasn’t this court designed to try the 9/11 cases?

This was the worst misstep in a week with too many of them. Nonetheless, the government has a strong case. Prosecutors have presented proof that Mr. al Hawsawi moved money for nine of the 17 hijackers and showed video of him congratulating Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan after the attacks. But being right isn’t always enough to win a trial. And for the defense attorneys these trials are the greatest challenges of their careers.

JAG or civilian, most of these lawyers are able, principled death-penalty opponents. But some show signs of troubling moral inversion. One told me with a straight face that, given all her client has suffered, he should be let out with time served. All the civilian female defense attorneys wore Islamic headdresses when their clients were present—not at the request of their clients, nor for religious reasons, but sua sponte, to build trust. Maybe it works—but it also seems to aid the defendants’ efforts at costumed theatrics. Meanwhile, two of KSM’s attorneys have recently converted to Islam and pray with the defendants in the courtroom during breaks in the trial.

 Just as justice demands these men be executed if guilty, it also demands they have a chance to answer the charges against them. It is a domestic and foreign-policy imperative that the U.S. be seen to give a fair trial, and lay its evidence before the world. But this process looks like something else altogether—paralysis.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis visited Gitmo around Christmas, and the Trump administration is reportedly reviewing its approach to the trials. If so, good. Few topics are more in need of top-to-bottom re-evaluation.

Mr. Gallagher is a second-year student at New York University Law School. He was observing the trial on behalf of Judicial Watch and the NYU Federalist Society.

ALLAHU AKBAR IS WHY MUSLIMS KILL

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017

 

Daniel Greenfield’s article: Allahu Akbar is Why Muslims Kill

Posted: 09 Nov 2017 10:30 AM PST
Allahu Akbar. You hear it everywhere these days.

Special agent Scott Wickland said that he heard cries of “Allahu Akbar” before the Benghazi attack. And then the guards ran for their guns. 

In Nice, France, the Islamic terrorist who killed 86 people and wounded over 400 by running them over with a truck, shouted, “Allahu Akbar”. In New York, the Islamic terrorist who was trying to imitate him, also shouted, “Allahu Akbar.” The 9/11 hijackers had the same message, “Allahu Akbar”. 

“Allahu Akbar” has been present at virtually every major recent Islamic terror attack in the West. 

But according to the New York Times, “Allahu Akbar” is an “innocent” and “innocuous” expression. According to one of the Times’ sources, “You see a reallу beautiful woman” and “уou go, ‘Allahu Akbar.’” 

If all those shouts of “Allahu Akbar” in Paris, London and New York are caused by Muslim terrorists encountering attractive women, their reaction of choice to an attractive woman is a killing spree. 

“Allahu Akbar” is not “innocent” or “innocuous.” It’s at the core of what makes Islam violent.

EDUCATION JIHAD: PROMOTING ISLAM IN AMERICAN SCHOOLS

Sunday, November 5th, 2017

 

Thanks to Dee Sams for sharing this important article and also for her very insightful comments. Please share Nancy

 

 

Many of you have known about this for a while, many have no idea. This is very real threat to our country – please read carefully and pass this on to everyone you know, especially parents and teachers. Bit by bit we are and will lose our civilization if we do not educate ourselves about the facts. This is not a left or right political issue, this is an issue of preserving the freedoms and protections we were founded on – the only country in the world ever founded in such a way as to protect our liberal (in the true original meaning of the word) society and rights given to us by God, not government. To understand what we were not taught, read The 5000 Year Leap. Please pass this on and educate others to the threat explained below.   DS

Education Jihad: Promoting Islam in American Schools

For decades, organizations and individuals have undermined our American education system by attacking our beliefs in a constitutional republic and our fundamental Judeo-Christian principles.  These have been supplanted with a “multicultural” viewpoint, which has taken the place of traditional American perspectives and values with accommodation and appeasement of protected minorities depicted as victims of the dominant culture.  Oil-rich Arab-Muslim nations, including Saudi Arabia and its Muslim Brotherhood cohorts, have used multiculturalism to target impressionable youths in our public schools, promote Islam, and advance Islamic political agendas.  Under the subterfuge of promoting a multicultural educational environment, these agents have replaced time-honored educational materials of American ideals and historical perspectives with anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Judeo-Christian, and pro-Islamic rhetoric.
This re-engineering of the education system to disproportionately highlight the virtues and contributions of Islamic ideology is part of “civilizational jihad,” the enemy’s term for the subversion of our society.  It was defined in the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” presented as evidence in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terrorism trial.  The document calls for the stealth takeover of North America through infiltration of all of society, with the ultimate goal of destroying the U.S. and turning it into a Muslim nation.

ISLAMIC MOVEMENT IN U.S. PREPARING FOR BATTLE

Islamic Movement in U.S. Preparing for Battle

For UTT followers who are accustomed to brief articles, this is a longer article because it needs to be.  This is an important topic and needs a little more attention.  Please read this carefully because the implications are significant.  JG

By John Guandolo

As UTT has continually reported, there exists in the United States a significant jihadi movement led primarily by the Muslim Brotherhood whose organizations include the most prominent and influential Islamic groups in America.

The Islamic Movement in the U.S. continues their daily work of preparing for the coming battle at all levels of the society.  From a military standpoint, the leaders of the American Muslim community are coalescing their forces and preparing strategically, operationally, and logistically for war.

Strategic Overlay

Going back to the early 1980’s, the jihadis set up an elaborate network of jihadi centers known in the U.S. as the Al Kifah Refugee Centers to recruit jihadis for the war against the Soviets in Afghanistan.  Some of these over three dozen offices were operated by only a couple jihadis with a phone or fax machine, and some had a more sizable presence in the community.  Nevertheless, they created nodes across the United States for jihadis in many American cities, and became centers for possible Al Qaeda recruitment in the future.

For the last few decades the Pakistani terrorist organization known as Jamaat al Fuqra has been establishing jihadi training camps in the United States primarily among black Muslims, many of whom were recruited in prison.  Known in the U.S. as “Muslims of America” or “MOA,” approximately two dozen of the three dozen known camps appear to be operational today.

In the early 1990’s the Chief Investigator for the state of Colorado, with support from the Governor and Attorney General, launched a multi-jurisdictional raid of an MOA compound near Buena Vista (CO) and discovered weapons, explosives, lists of people to be assassinated, evidence that military/national guard bases had been under surveillance, and the like.

In one of the gems discovered in the 2004 FBI raid of the Annandale, Virginia home of a senior Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas leader, a recording of a senior Muslim Brotherhood leader speaking to a group of Muslim Brothers in Missouri revealed the MB has numerous training camps inside America and conducted regular firearms training.

THE DANGER IS ISLAMIC PRAYER

Thanks to Charlie Hendrix of Ohio for sharing.  This article is from 2015 but since Islamic prayers have probably not changed since the time of Mohammed,   I doubt very much if it matters !   Nancy

THE DANGER IN ISLAMIC PRAYER
By Sonia Bailley    December 1, 2015

It is crucial that Westerners discover what Muslims are saying when they recite the Islamic mandatory prayers before sharing their places of worship. A few days ago, an Ontario synagogue invited Muslim worshippers to lead the Friday prayer. This article explains what the Islamic daily prayers mean, with focus on the Friday prayer within the context of Islamic law or sharia. Being better informed will make Westerners think twice before opening the doors to Muslim for prayer.

Canadian Muslims in southern Ontario were invited to preach the supremacy of Islam at a local synagogue and church. In a goodwill gesture, Peterborough’s Mark Street United Church and Beth Israel Synagogue opened their doors to Muslims for prayer following the recent fire damage of the Masjid al-Salaam mosque. President of the Beth Israel Synagogue and his board of directors hosted two Islamic prayer sessions this past Friday with not even a suspicion that the underlying theme in Islamic prayer is to curse and do away with nonbelievers like them.

A deep hatred and rejection of Judaism and Christianity are hardwired into Islamic doctrine, including the Koran. Many of its chapters are incorporated into mandatory daily Islamic prayer. The very first Koranic chapter, considered the most exalted of all chapters, is a prayer directed to Allah asking him to keep Muslims away from the misguided path of Jews and Christians. This chapter is a necessary part of the five mandatory daily prayers, and is recited not once, but anywhere from 17 to 100 times a day by devout Muslims (or in a broader sense, 6200 to 36,500 times a year).
