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.

FIVE MYTHS ABOUT JIHADI RADICALIZATION

Friday, January 5th, 2018

 

Five Myths about Jihadi Radicalization

“You cannot reason with a tiger when your head is in its mouth,” Winston Churchill famously stated.  The Islamist tiger in the United States is ready to pounce, and until Americans understand this enemy, we cannot even begin to fight back.  Dispelling myths about jihadist radicalization is only the beginning.

Myth #1: Poor, uneducated, downtrodden youths are more likely to become jihadists.

Many school administrators, local politicians, and community members believe that young adults have a greater chance of becoming jihadists if they hail from an underprivileged, deprived neighborhood.  Their solution is to fundraise for after-school programs and free lunches, believing that this will keep the youth “out of trouble.”  This 1960s thinking will not solve the jihadist problem because it is not about money or more programs.  It is about an extreme ideology and belief system.

According to a 2016 World Bank study, most jihadists grew up in a middle-class family and earned at least a college degree.  “There is no link between poverty or educational levels and radicalization.”

According to the Gatestone Institute, “Britain’s MI5 revealed that ‘two-thirds of the British suspects have a middle-class profile and those who want to be suicide bombers are often the most educated.”

 PLEASE CLICK ON THE ABOVE LINK TO READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE

Jihadi leaders who used their fortunes and education for jihad include:

  • Osama bin Laden: estimated net worth $300 million, studied at King Abdulaziz University and summer at Oxford.
  • Ayman al-Zawahiri: head of al-Qaeda, was a medical doctor.
  • Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab: the “underwear bomber,” had a degree from University College in London.
  • Omar Saeed Sheik: terrorist who was convicted of murdering American journalist Daniel Pearl, attended the London School of Economics.

Fourteen-, fifteen-, and sixteen-year-old girls, all honor students from middle-class families, left London to join ISIS in Syria, where one of them, Kadiza Sultana, was killed in an airstrike.

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.

TEACHERS TRAINED TO ADVOCATE FOR ISLAM !

WARNING: Teachers Trained to Advocate for Islam!

WARNING: Teachers Trained to Advocate for Islam!
“Culturally-relevant pedagogy”
On October 14th, Hamline University hosted a seminar by Michael Abraham from Abraham Educational Services on how public schools can increase “engagement of Muslim students with culturally relevant pedagogy” and “honor their cultural identity in the classroom.” Almost 30 teachers showed up at $99 a head for a six hour seminar and Continuing Education credits. A follow-up seminar is scheduled for January 20th.

What is “culturally relevant” Muslim pedagogy?

Muslim “culturally relevant pedagogy” is teaching the religion of Islam, because Muslim “culture” is Islam. The two are inseparable. This course promises to instruct teachers how to “honor” the Muslim culture in the classroom, which means teaching students to “honor” the religion of Islam. Michael Abraham, the instructor, does not simply teach about Islam; he recommends materials for classroom use that teach how to become a Muslim. This is advocating!
Incorporating Islam and Abraham’s culturally relevant “pedagogical tools, literary resources, and narratives” into the public school classroom violate all educational boundaries. His approach imitates today’s LGBT pedagogy in the classroom which also demands, in the name of “safe schools,” that students “honor, respect and celebrate” a false, dangerous “gender fluid” ideology.

Teaching students respect for all people can never, under the guise of diversity, be a mandate for them to honor and imitate the rites and customs of a religion they believe is false.

HOW DARE THE GOP PRAY FOR TEXAS

How Dare the GOP Pray for Texas

It is now deplorable to offer ‘thoughts and prayers’ for the First Baptist church families.

November 7, 2017   by William McGurn

Imagine you are a sane Democrat who recognizes that a big reason Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump in November was that she alienated many members of the white working class. In the year since, you have been working on your fellow Democrats to change their message in hopes of wooing these voters back into the fold. Then a gunman opens fire at a Baptist church in Texas, and suddenly progressives are in full deplorable mode, attacking anyone who dares offer . . . prayers.

This is the extraordinary turn of events since Devin Patrick Kelley turned his rifle on the innocent churchgoers inside First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. What provoked the left, if it can really be called a provocation, was President Trump’s statement from Japan Sunday, in which he said that “our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and families of today’s horrible and murderous attack.” House Speaker Paul Ryan likewise set off the furies by tweeting, “The people of Sutherland Springs need our prayers right now.”

The responses have to be read to be believed. Here’s one of the more charming: “The murdered victims were in a church,” tweeted actor Wil Wheaton to Mr. Ryan. “If prayers did anything, they’d still be alive, you worthless sack of [expletive].”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren chose less inflammatory wording for her own tweet. “Thoughts & prayers are not enough, GOP,” wrote the Massachusetts Democrat. “We must end this violence. We must stop these tragedies. People are dying while you wait.” In short, if you are a Republican praying instead of passing gun control, you’ve got blood on your hands.

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.

ISLAMISTS, LEFTISTS, GANG UP AGAINST ‘MUSLIM MAFIA’ INVESTIGATORS

ISLAMISTS, LEFTISTS, GANG UP AGAINST ‘MUSLIM MAFIA’ INVESTIGATORS

‘I was afraid for my life for the 1st time in years’

by  LEO HOHMANN  September 16, 2017

While all eyes were on the University of California, Berkeley, Thursday night to see if radical leftists could control their anger over the mere presence of a conservative speaker on campus, it was a gathering in a tiny Iowa town that attracted the attention of one of the left’s key allies – the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

CAIR, which was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-financing trial held in 2008, crashed a meeting in Oakland, Iowa – population 1,500 in rural Pottawattamie County.

Why such concern for what’s going on in a place so far off the beaten path?

Actually, it’s not unusual, not in post-Trump America.

CAIR has made it a top priority in the wake of President Trump’s surprising election victory to show up, challenge and cause confusion wherever a factual discussion of Islam is being held, say experts on the organization. CAIR is worried that a nation under the spell of Barack Obama for eight years may start to wake up to some startling facts and discover that Islam has become the government-favored religion, the only religion Americans are not allowed to criticize.

This is all part of CAIR’s nationwide campaign against “Islamophobia” which coincides with the United Nations’ anti-Islamophobia campaign being carried out on a global scale. Cities such as Boston, Minneapolis, San Fransisco and Nashville have all taken up the cause of defending Islam against verbal attacks increasingly referred to as “hate crimes.”

But if Oakland, Iowa, is any indication, CAIR’s strategy of defending Islam against Americans exercising their First Amendment rights doesn’t play as well in rural America as it does in the big cities. In fact, it may even be backfiring.

The speakers who had CAIR worked up into a frenzy were John Guandolo and Chris Gaubatz, partners in Understanding the Threat, a consulting firm that educates the public, local law enforcement and churches about the threat of latent jihadist cells in America – cells similar to those that have been activated and carried out horrific attacks over the past two years in Paris, London, Brussels, Barcelona and other European cities.

The two men were set to appear Thursday in a series of meetings in Nebraska and Iowa, one of which had to be canceled due to the sponsor’s fear of protesters showing up and scaring away his customers at a local restaurant.

The final leg of the speaking tour, at a community center in Oakland, Iowa, is where it got interesting. The event drew a crowd of about 100 people seeking to learn about the Islamic threat. They were met by 16 protesters made up of mostly left-wing Democrat activists. Some of the CAIR operatives infiltrated the meeting and tried to disrupt the flow of information from Gaubatz, an investigative journalist and Guandolo, a former FBI counter-terrorism specialist. Gaubatz once went undercover to work at CAIR National, leaving with copies of hundreds of documents that made the basis for an investigative book called “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret World that’s Conspiring to Islamize America.”
