There are times when folks ask me a simple question: will we be able to defeat Islamic jihadism? It’s a great question because we’ve provided these terrorists a full, almost ten-year head start due to a lack of a strategic vision to deny them sanctuary, cut off their flow of men and materiel support, defeat their propaganda campaign, and isolate them.
We’ve sat back and enabled their stealth jihadist advance team to undermine our national security strategy with our political correctness, and complete obfuscation as to the nature of who they are…and their objective. Honestly, it’s time we stop concerning ourselves with what domestic “civilizational jihad” groups such as the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and others think or say. I find it completely disgusting when speaking on college campuses and these students get angry with me because of something I’ve said…seems they don’t like to be “offended.”
It’s time to let them know we in the western world don’t like to be killed. And while we shall not condemn an entire group of individuals – Muslims — we should neither be intimidated nor coerced into denying the issue.
Nor, should we continue down the insidious Islamophobic yellow brick road of “let’s all get along and spread compassion, unity, and love with the enemy.”
Amazingly, a former FBI agent wanted to share some love with an Islamic jihadi, and here’s how that turned out.As reported by CNN, “An FBI translator with a top-secret security clearance traveled to Syria in 2014 and married a key ISIS operative she had been assigned to investigate, CNN has learned. The rogue employee, Daniela Greene, lied to the FBI about where she was going and warned her new husband he was under investigation, according to federal court records.
Greene’s saga, which has never been publicized, exposes an embarrassing breach of national security at the FBI—an agency that has made its mission rooting out ISIS sympathizers across the country. It also raises questions about whether Greene received favorable treatment from Justice Department prosecutors who charged her with a relatively minor offense, then asked a judge to give her a reduced sentence in exchange for her cooperation, the details of which remain shrouded in court-ordered secrecy. The man Greene married was no ordinary terrorist.
He was Denis Cuspert, a German rapper turned ISIS pitchman, whose growing influence as an online recruiter for violent jihadists had put him on the radar of counter-terrorism authorities on two continents. In Germany, Cuspert went by the rap name Deso Dogg. In Syria, he was known as Abu Talha al-Almani. He praised Osama bin Laden in a song, threatened former President Barack Obama with a throat-cutting gesture and appeared in propaganda videos, including one in which he was holding a freshly severed human head.
Within weeks of marrying Cuspert, Greene, 38, seemed to realize she had made a terrible mistake. She fled back to the US, where she was immediately arrested and agreed to cooperate with authorities. She pleaded guilty to making false statements involving international terrorism and was sentenced to two years in federal prison. She was released last summer.”
Ok, let’s start by asking the immediate question: is CNN going to make this FBI agent, Ms. Greene, into some kinda victim? You know that’s the progressive socialist way. Consider how bad Barack Obama felt about one Army Private Bradley Manning…that his sentence was commuted. Yep, go ahead, share over 700,000 classified documents, resulting in confirmed deaths of friendlies, and get your freedom because the left feels sorry for you because you want to be a girl. So without a doubt, this Ms. Greene will be portrayed as someone who was just lovestruck and fell for an ISIS wolf.
Two years? You gotta be kidding me, and now she’s released? Heck, I’d get more federal prison time for tax evasion…then again, if I were a black liberal progressive like Joy Reid or Al Sharpton, I could get away with not paying my taxes and have a show on MSNBC.
Can we defeat this enemy? Not if liberal progressives are in charge. Ms. Greene is a federal law enforcement agent; she took an oath to our Constitution. She disavowed her oath and collaborated with the enemy – and not just any ol’ enemy but a member of the most savage and barbaric group we’ve seen since the Nazi SS. And she pleaded guilty to just making a false statement?
This is the problem with the left. You drop a MOAB on ISIS, and they call you mean. You desert your unit in a combat zone in Afghanistan, and you “served with honor and distinction.” You fly to Syria, marry an ISIS fighter, not just any fighter, and warn him of an investigation and you get a two-year slap on the hand, not life in prison. And how was it that the FBI lost track of an agent…who went to Syria? Freaking unbelievable Director Comey!
Nope, I have NO sympathy for Ms. Daniela Greene, and a 38-year-old doesn’t just make a mistake like this. I mean c’mon man, somewhere between Washington DC and landing in Syria, this woman never thought to herself…”this is really stuck on stupid?” However, what is a “special kind of stupid” is that this happened in 2014, and we’re just finding out about it.
Just makes ya wonder… what else will we be uncovering in the post-Islamist sympathizer Barack Obama era? Couple of weeks ago we learned about the secret pardoning of Iranian bad guys as part of the nuclear agreement…what other breaches of our national security shall we come to learn?
Regardless, the situation of one Daniela Greene is indeed FUBAR!
