Report: US-Trained Syrian Rebel Leader Defects to Al-Qaeda

You are never going to believe this, but according to Patrick Poole at PJ Media, those Syrian rebel soldiers the US has been arming and funding for over a year –  have not been working out so well.

The latest report he points to indicates that a U.S.-trained Syrian rebel leader has “deceived his American handlers and has defected to Jabhat al-Nusra — the official al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria.”

This report comes just days after a senior U.S. military commander told Congress that only 4 to 5 U.S.-trained Syrian fighters are effectively engaged against ISIS as a result of a $500 million program pushed through by GOP congressional leadership a year ago. Since July 2014, I have repeatedly covered the frequent defections of “vetted moderate” Syrian rebel groups to al-Qaeda and ISIS here at PJ Media.

Yeah, who could have seen this coming? Besides practically everyone?

On September 17, 2014, I regretfully reported that the GOP-led Congress had very stupidly voted to authorize Obama’s (obviously underdeveloped) plan to arm and train the terrorists  rebels.

I really really want to be wrong about thinking this is a huge mistake, but I have a very bad feeling about arming people with values and loyalties so antithetical to ours with American weapons. My greatest fear is that these weapons will eventually be turned on American soldiers, and will lead to more Christians and ethnic minorities being slaughtered in the Middle East.

Why on earth do we think this is a good idea?

One thing I didn’t foresee was the colossal waste of money we would spend to arm and train 4-5 dudes. I mean – I think we all could have predicted that it was not going to be cost efficient with Obama in charge – but $500 mil to arm 5 guys, huh? That is some impressive malfeasance right there – even for the Obama administration.

And it all comes courtesy of the Stupid Party.

Take your bows, Lindsey and John. Brava.

Just when you think it can not get any worse…tomorrow comes.


More from the UK Telegraph:

“Immediately.” That’s how reliable these US trained and vetted rebel soldiers are.

Flashback: Farrakhan Said “Stalk Them and Kill Them”

It’s been over a month since Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan called on his followers to rise up and kill their enemies, and the silence of the Obama Justice Department has been deafening.

Likewise,  the MSM has been shamefully quiet, too — as if this is acceptable behavior for the leader of a 50,000-strong denomination. It most certainly isn’t.

Farrakhan’s shocking words came during a July 30 speech at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Miami:

“The Koran teaches persecution is worse than slaughter. Then it says, retaliation is prescribed in matters of the slain. Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breaths of those whose children have been slain,” Farrakhan said.

“So if the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling,” he added.

Newsmax Talk Show host Steve Malzberg wonders, like I did earlier this month, how this unhinged maniac can get away making a direct threat against whites (more specifically cops) and not face any consequences.

But it gets worse.



Not part of a chant, the march leader, wearing the rank of colonel, shouted directly to Harris County mounted deputies through a megaphone. “You think we’re not pissed off a bunch about y’all killing our sisters? You think it’s okay? [We’re] the wrong n***ers to mess with. You’re gonna stop doing what you’re doing, or we will start creeping up on you in the darkness.”

This was said two weeks prior to the assassination Harris County Deputy Darren H. Goforth.

Shannon Miles, a black male, allegedly came “creeping up” behind Harris County Deputy Darren Goforth in the darkness on the night of August 28. While Goforth stood at a convenience store pumping gas into his patrol vehicle, Miles allegedly raised a pistol and shot him dead.

Slogans of the Black Lives Matter/Black Grievance industry:  

“Stalk them and kill them”

“We will start creeping up on you in the darkness.”

“When those mother f**kers are by themselves, that’s when when we should start f***ing them up.”

“Pigs in a Blanket, fry them like bacon.”

‘What do want, shoot back, what do we want, dead cops, when do we want it, now!”

How are these people not terrorists?

And does it surprise you that the DNC passed a resolution supporting Black Lives Matter at their summer meeting?

Does it further surprise you that BLM rejected the endorsement because the stupid, ridiculous, insipid, pathetic Dems are not radical enough for them?

The Democratic National Committee tried to genuflect over the weekend to the Black Lives Matter crowd, but got the back of the hand for its trouble — or the middle finger, more accurately.


On the Kelly File, Monday night, Megyn Kelly brought up a fact I did not know about a Black Lives Matter supporter’s murder of the two cops in New York City, earlier this year:

“The morning before he killed those cops, he tweeted out: ‘Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon,” she told Harris County Sheriff Hickman. “It’s a reference to dead cops.”

Ralph Peters: Obama’s ‘Cognitive Dissonance’ Preventing Him From Dealing Effectively With ISIS

Lt. Col. Ralph Peters was on the O’Reilly Factor, Tuesday night to talk about Obama’s latest bland and stupid mutterings on ISIS (or ISIL as he insists on calling them.)

“No amount of military force will end the terror that is ISIL,” Obama lectured, frequently looking down at his notes because TOTUS was apparently in the shop.

“He’s right about one thing,” Peters said after listening to the clip.  “There are underlying problems which, as you pointed out, we can’t fix. And the underlying problems are the collapse of the civilization. We can’t do anything about that. What we can do – is go after our enemies. He knows how many foreign fighters are flocking to their standards.

Peters noted that Obama gets high level briefings – ‘”above top secret” – every day.

“He knows how serious Islamic State is. He knows how deep the caliphate’s roots are going. He knows how many sympathizers there are. But he’s got a problem – it’s cognitive dissonance – he knows there’s a problem – but he can’t bring himself to accept that there’s only a military solution and we have two thousand years of evidence of religious insurgencies in every major religion. None has been put down with empathy, aid, and negotiations. You can’t negotiate with cobras.”

Worrying that ISIS could take very well take Damascus, Peters said,  “the military can’t be a Pollyanna like Obama is. You’ve got to prepare for the worst thing that could conceivably happen…”

“The American people are willing to vote for a Pollyanna, these days, Ralph,” O’Reilly interrupted.

And he’s right. We get the leaders we deserve, and though it’s hard to conceive of anybody worse than Obama – the American voter will likely continue their appalling lack of common sense, decency and judgement in 2016.

ISIS Mutants Become More Sadistic as They Lose Ground In Syria

For months now, ISIS militants have been getting their asses kicked by Kurdish fighters in Syria. In fact they’ve been on a losing streak since the YPG defeated the them in Kobane back in January. Kurdish troops in Syria have managed to retake around two dozen towns and villages in the country’s northeast with the help of coalition airstrikes.

Last week, Kurdish forces liberated Tal Abyad, a key ISIS outpost that was an access point to its self-declared capital of Raqqa. Now they’ve captured an ISIS-held military base thirty miles from Raqqa.

As Islamic State ghouls have lost ground, they’ve also lost whatever shred of humanity remained in their black and shriveled souls.

These horrific recent stories from Iraq and Syria include drownings, electrocution, sexual slavery and the torture of children.

The headlines range from terrible —  to the stuff of nightmares.

ISIL abducts over 1,200 Iraqi kids in Mosul: Kurdish official:

Members of the Takfiri ISIL militant group have abducted more than 1,200 children from various districts of the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

The Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP)’s spokesman in Mosul, Saeed Mamouzini, said ISIL extremists have lately kidnapped 1,227 kids in multiple neighborhoods of the city, located some 400 kilometers (248 miles) north of the capital, Baghdad, Iraq’s al-Sumaria satellite TV network reported.

He added that the Takfiris have shifted the abductees to their training camps on the eastern outskirts of Mosul, where they are being forced to undergo training to carry out acts of terror.

Mamouzini further said that ISIL terrorists also took into captivity scores of Mosul residents, who had protested against the abduction of the minors.

The report comes only days after Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said the ISIL is recruiting children from 100 countries to commit terrorist acts in the states, where the terrorist group is active.

Islamic State militants force Kurdish Yazidi prisoners to fast in Ramadan:

Kurdistan region ‘Iraq’,— Kurdish Yazidi  official said that Islamic State group (IS) is forcing non-muslim Kurds from the Yazidi religion to fast during Ramadan, adding that jailers flog each one who don’t perform the five daily prayers.

The general director of the Yazidi affairs at the Ministry of Endowment in Kurdistan Regional Government, Khayri Bozanai in a statement that “our response and from reliable sources is that the terrorist organization is forcing the Yazidis prisoners to fast in Ramadan.”

New low: ISIS reportedly gives away sex slaves as ‘prizes’ in Koran contest

ISIS has already committed countless unspeakable acts on Yazidi and Christian girls and women in Iraq, but the terrorist army may have reached a new low with a twisted new contest in which female slaves captured in war are given away as “prizes” to fighters who show the have mastered the Koran.

The shocking practice of giving away human beings as prizes, called “sibya,” was organized by the Da’wa and Mosques Department in Al-Baraka province in Syria in honor of the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan and was announced June 19 on ISIS Twitter accounts, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute and the Clarion Project, two independent research institutes that track social media accounts linked to terrorist groups.

An announcement on Twitter “begins with congratulations to ISIS soldiers and departments in the province upon the beginning of the month of Ramadan,” MEMRI wrote, “It then announces the upcoming Koran memorization competition, at which it says participants will be tested and given prizes accordingly.”

Life in the Islamic State– ISIS crucified two Syrian boys for breaking fast during Ramadan.

NEW ISIS EXECUTION VIDEO=> Islamic State Drowns Iraqis in Cage, Blows Up Prisoners in Car w/RPG


The Islamic State released a new video today showing off their latest barbarity.

In the video ISIS killers drown Iraqi prisoners in a cage in Nineveh Province.
They also murder Iraqi prisoners by shooting an RPG at a car they were held in.



To add insult to injury, the Islamic State has begun the demolition of Ancient Syrian Sites in Palmyra – (which they had previously assured everyone they would not do.)

These Demonic freaks can not be extinguished fast enough.

Introducing IranTruth: Don’t Trust The Mullahs (Video)

A new website called aims to expose the truth about the nature of the Iranian regime– as well as the danger of a nuclear deal with the mullahs.

The website launched earlier this month with analysis, videos and background information on issues like Hezbollah in Latin America, the intricacies of the nuclear weapons process and more.

They’ve put out a new video  that exposes the dangers of trusting Iran on any nuclear deal:

Iran has also demonstrated an unwavering commitment to building nuclear weapons, enriching uranium in violation of international treaties and proliferating ballistic missiles with which to deliver weapons of mass destruction.

We must oppose any deal with Iran that doesn’t end their illegal nuclear weapons program and stop their sponsorship of Jihadist terrorism.

Unfortunately, the Obama administration treats Iran as a rational partner for peace. Since Mr. Obama became president he has been so desperate to achieve a nuclear agreement with Iran that his administration has been prepared to make any concession and ignore all bad behavior by Iran to get a legacy nuclear agreement. Obama administration officials have also repeatedly misled and lied about what they have agreed to in the nuclear talks with Iran.

In short, President Obama’s nuclear diplomacy with Iran will concede the bomb to Tehran.

Video: Boston terror suspects reportedly plotted to behead police officers

The man who was shot by anti-terrorism officers in Boston, yesterday, and the suspect now in custody, were ISIS inspired jihadists who had planned to behead a police officer, law enforcement officials say.

Via The Boston Globe:

“We believe the intent was to behead a police officer,” one official said Wednesday morning. “We knew the plot had to be stopped. They were planning to take action Tuesday.”

The other official said Boston police and the FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Force were aware of the plot because of intelligence that had been gathered, and the suspects had been under surveillance for several weeks.

PJ Tatler: Was Usaama Rahim Actually Jihadist ‘Abu Sufyaan’ on Facebook?

David Wright is the Everett, Massachusetts man arrested yesterday for plotting a police officer beheading with Usaama Rahim. Wright was arrested shortly after Usaama Rahim was killed when two officers approached to question him. Wright is scheduled to be arraigned at 3:30 p.m. Eastern today.

Brian Maloney, Radio Equalizer: ISIS-inspired attack on American police foiled: Plan similiar to 2013 beheading of British soldier Lee Rigby on London street

…in a disturbing sign of how the anti-police movement and increasingly assertive Islamists may be building a combined power base, the latter are attempting to stir inner-city community anger over Rahim’s shooting, exploiting recent events in Baltimore, New York and Ferguson.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) will monitor the investigation. As WBZ reports, law enforcement will even supply local Muslim leaders with the evidence they gather:

Investigators say they are planning to share their video evidence with the Islamic Society of Boston, local clergy and civil rights advocates Wednesday in a private meeting.

The Council of American-Islamic Relations will monitor the investigation, spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said.

“We have a number of questions,” Hooper said. “Why exactly was he being followed? What was the probable cause for this particular stop? Were there any video cameras or body cameras of the incident? How do you reconcile the two versions of the story, the family version being that he was on his normal commute to work at a bus stop?”

Video: Ralph Peters Blasts Obama’s “False Humanitarianism” In Iraq

Lt. Col Ralph Peters (ret) appeared on Fox News, this morning to talk about the lackluster U.S. air campaign in Iraq – where 75% of our pilots are returning to base without dropping any ordnance at all due to the delays in decision-making process.

Last week, a former U.S. Air Force general who has led air campaigns over Iraq and Afghanistan, placed the blame for the failure right on the White House front steps. Due to Obama’s micromanagement the campaign, the process for ordering strikes has been so slow that the enemy is frequently allowed to escape.

“You’re talking about hours in some cases, which by that time the particular tactical target left the area and or the aircraft has run out of fuel. These are excessive procedures that are handing our adversary an advantage,” said retired Lt. Gen. David Deptula, a former director of the Combined Air Operations Center in Afghanistan in 2001.

“The ultimate guidance rests in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,” he said. “We have been applying air power like a rain shower or a drizzle — for it to be effective, it needs to be applied like a thunderstorm.”

“It’s false humanitarianism,” Peters told Bill Hemmer on America’s Newsroom. “Let’s apply simple logic. In our refusal to accept hundreds of civilian deaths in Syria and Iraq in air strikes, we condemn millions of people in the Middle East to live under the tyranny of the Islamic State.”

“Warfare will never be perfectly clean,” Peters continued. “Now, we had a problem with over-worrying about civilian casualties in the Bush administration – but it’s become a mania with the Obama administration.”

“You heard Josh Earnest talking about two civilian casualties in November – and suddenly we have to put the breaks on our airstrikes? Against a ruthless, fanatical, uncompromising enemy like the Islamic State militants? – If you elevate worries about civilian deaths and casualties above the will to win, you will lose – and we are losing,” Peters said.
