    Swiss federal prosecutors have brought charges against leading members of the country’s largest Islamic organization in a criminal probe into jihadist propaganda. Swiss media reported on Thursday that the president and two members of the governing board of the Islamic Central Council of Switzerland (ICCS) had been charged with violating the ban on groups including Al-Qaeda and Islamic State (IS). The three were named as Nicolas Blancho, ICCS president, Naim Cherni, and Qaasim Illi. In a statement, the office of Switzerland’s attorney general accused the ICCS of making videos in Syria between September and October 2015 featuring a leading member...

    On Sunday, President Barack Obama traveled to Afghanistan to do a photo op with the troops amid fallout from the burgeoning Veterans Administration scandal. Announcing his visit, the White House promptly released a list of guests, including the name of the top CIA officer in Afghanistan. That officer is responsible for intelligence and drone warfare. The information was sent to over 6,000 email addresses. Oops. This is not the first time the Obama administration has compromised national security with leaks, either purposeful or inadvertent. SEAL Team Six. After the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the Obama administration steadfastly refused to...

    Washington, D.C. - Michael Maloof was back in the game. He and another Pentagon aide, David Wurmser, drove the short distance from the Pentagon to CIA headquarters in Langley, Va. It was early October, a good season in Washington, but Maloof’s nerves were on edge during the scenic ride along the tree-lined George Washington Parkway. snip Maloof was a legend within the Pentagon circle that tracked arms proliferation. His office was obscure, but it performed a crucial national security function. snip The Pentagon wanted years of intelligence reporting on al Qaeda, Iraq, Iran and other potential targets in the war...

    In the 1920s, Nazis and Communists frequently battled in pubs and streets as they fought for supremacy in Germany. After the prolonged battle, the Nazis won out and the Communists were outlawed in Germany the day Hitler took power. That was the beginning of the rise of the Nazis becoming the most hated group in world history. The battle between the two groups did not end there as Stalin took control of Communist Russia, renamed the Soviet Union. In the 1930s, while Hitler was consolidating power and beginning to eradicate his enemies, Stalin was throwing thousands into the Gulag and...
  • (IBD) Was David Petraeus Blackmailed By Obama Administration To Hide Benghazi Truth?

    Petraeus Scandal: An affair that was known to the FBI for months and kept from congressional oversight committees might explain his complicity in a false narrative of the Benghazi terrorist attack and the order to "stand down." The addition of sex to Benghazigate adds a dimension sure to keep the scandal going and one that does indeed make Watergate seem like a third-rate burglary. The affair admitted to by Gen. David Petraeus, now our former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, might have attached blackmail or the potential for blackmail to a scandal we have already called a case of...

    Al Qaeda has issued its latest edition of Inspire magazine, Inspire 17. The magazine is published by the media arm of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, but it covers Al Qaeda operations worldwide. In particular, Inspire 17 features the emir of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, Abu Musab Abdel al-Wadoud. However, this latest issue of Inspire is noteworthy in that the most prominent personality in the magazine is Hamza bin Laden, son of Osama bin Laden. Hamza bin Laden is emerging as a global leader of Al Qaeda and has specifically vowed to take revenge on the U.S....

    Al Qaeda is about to take on a new target — America’s trains — in an upcoming edition of its terror magazine Inspire. Issue No. 17 is headlined “Train Derail Operations,” and will spell out ways to create rail disasters in a transportation system that lacks the stiff security procedures of airline travel. Its competing Sunni extremists group, the Islamic State, for more than a year has advocated using vehicles to mow down innocents. Its murderous followers have weaponized vehicles in Nice, Berlin and London, creating hundred of deaths and injuries. […] The U.S. maintains over 100,000 miles of rail....

    For every person lauding President Donald Trump's efforts to "Make America Great Again," another soul is staring into the depths of despair. The U.S. president certainly has his detractors—but his latest critics are an unlikely bunch: jihadis in Africa. In a new propaganda video, the Al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Shabab referred to Trump as a “brainless billionaire who’s single handedly succeeded in making the United States the greatest joke on Earth.” Al-Shabab has been battling the Western-backed Somali government for more than a decade. Recent data revealed that the group is  one of the deadliest in Africa.

    WASHINGTON (Pajhwok): A top US expert has said Al Qaeda was reconstituting in Afghanistan in concert with the Afghan Taliban that provided sanctuary to the terrorist outfit. Al Qaeda Senior Leadership, such as Ayman al Zawahiri and Hamza bin Laden, operated from the Afghanistan-Pakistan region, Katherine Zimmerman, research fellow American Enterprise Institute, said during a Congressional hearing organized by the Committee on House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence. “Retaining al Qaeda`s sanctuary in Afghanistan is a secondary but important effort for the global organization because the victory against the Soviets in Afghanistan remains al Qaeda`s crown jewel, proving...

    In an exclusive interview with PJ Media, the Libyan National Army (LNA) spokesman, Col. Ahmed al-Mesmari, says that President Obama and Hillary Clinton "abandoned the Libyan people to face these terrorists alone." He also implicates the Obama administration in supporting terrorist militias -- including Libyan al-Qaeda leader Abdelhakim Belhadj and Muslim Brotherhood militias allied to al-Qaeda. Col. al-Mesmari also claims that the February 17th Martyrs Brigade -- hired by Hillary Clinton's State Department to protect the U.S. consulate in Benghazi -- cooperated with Ansar al-Sharia in attacking the consulate compound on September 12, 2012. That attack led to the deaths...

    CNN's documentary Undercover in Syria received the prestigious Peabody Award for excellence in foreign news coverage in 2016 – a fact trumpeted by the network in news releases and in on-air commercials.  Correspondent Clarissa Ward went behind rebel lines in Aleppo to report on Russian involvement in the Syria civil war. But CNN covered up the name of the individual who filmed most of the documentary.  Bilal Abdul Kareem and his website had been contracted by CNN to shoot the project for the network.  But when award time came, the CNN sort of, kind of forgot the participation of Abdul...

    A former inmate of the Guantanamo prison camp, returned to Canada in 2015 and then released, will get $10 million from the Canadian government and an apology. Omar Khadr, the son of a known al-Qaeda terrorist leader, was captured after a firefight in Afghanistan where he threw a grenade killing a US medic and wounding others. These facts are not in dispute. Khadr pleaded guilty to the charges but claimed he was a "child soldier" forced to fight by his father. Khadr's lawyer says his client was tortured by the US while he was at Guantanamo, suffering from sleep...

    Canada’s Liberal government is prepared to provide an apology and $10 million to the confessed killer of a U.S. soldier who spent time to Guantanamo Bay. According to multiple reports Tuesday, Omar Khadr will be compensated in part because his interrogation at the hands of Canadian security was deemed “oppressive” by the Supreme Court of Canada. Khadar, who was born in Canada, was fighting with al-Qaeda forces in Afghanistan when he was 15. In a shoot-out with U.S. forces, Khadr confessed to killing U.S. Special Forces medic Sgt. Christopher Speer with a grenade. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is...

    A new bulletin from al-Qaeda released two days ago on social media and the terror group's Telegram channel tells jihadists to go forth and just kill Americans without any Islamic consultations first. Al-Qaeda's eleventh al-Nafir Bulletin unleashes fury over allegations that a U.S. airstrike struck a mosque with worshippers at evening prayers, killing up to 42 people, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights in Britain. U.S. Central Command said in a Thursday press release that "U.S. forces conducted an airstrike on an al-Qaeda in Syria meeting location March 16 in Idlib, Syria, killing several terrorists." On Friday, defense...

    IWB ^ | Robert Carbery
    Last November, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange declared that the “CIA created ISIS” alongside a release of 500,000+ cables from 1979. Assange said that the decision made by the CIA, along with Saudi Arabia, to send large sums of money into arming the Mujahideen in Afghanistan during their fight against the Soviet Union, eventually led to the creation of al-Qaeda. This terror group was responsible for the 9/11 atrocities in New York, which resulted in the invasions of both Afghanistan and Iraq by the U.S. and the inception of ISIS. The bloody year of 1979 would prove a pivotal one for...

    In August 2014, ISIS tried to secure the release from a U.S. federal prison of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui -- a Pakistani neuroscientist educated in the United States -- formerly known as the "most wanted woman alive," but now referred to as "Lady al Qaeda", by exchanging her for American war correspondent James Foley, who was abducted in 2012 in Syria. When the proposed swap failed, Foley was beheaded in a gruesome propaganda video produced and released by his captors, while Siddiqui remained in jail serving an 86-year sentence. Part of an FBI "seeking information" handout on Aafia Siddiqui -- formerly...
