Our Iraqi al-Qaeda Enemy Springs Our Syrian al-Qaeda Ally from Prison

July 24th, 2013 - 6:42 am

The Guardian reports that al-Qaeda has just carried out bombing raids at two Iraqi prisons, freeing hundreds of prisoners, many of them jihadist fighters affiliated with the terror network.

Hakim al-Zamili, a member of the security and defense committee in Iraq’s parliament concedes that “the number of escaped inmates has reached 500. Most of them were convicted senior members of al-Qaeda and had received death sentences.”

With U.S. combat forces having evacuated — and after American taxpayers expended tens of billions of dollars on our government’s dream of erecting an “Islamic democracy” that would be a reliable American counterterrorism ally — Iraq is sliding into full-blown civil war. That is the default condition between the majority Shiite and minority Sunni populations absent a credible military force that keeps them from savaging one another. Just this month, the Guardian report notes, “nearly 600 people have been killed in militant attacks across Iraq.” And with Americans having been smeared by Islamic supremacists as being “at war with Islam,” it is worth noting that these attacks, carried out during Ramadan, prominently target mosques.

It is also worth noting that many of the Sunni terrorists who have been broken out of prison were captured by U.S. forces, particularly during the troop surge that was sold to Americans as necessary to avoid a humiliating al Qaeda victory in Iraq. Now those al-Qaeda enemies of ours are free once more to continue their Iraqi civil war in what they call the “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.” But observe that if these same jihadists manage to cross the border into Syria — which is also part of their Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant — they somehow transmogrify into “rebels,” our noble allies in the Syrian civil war against Assad.

There’s a coherent, carefully thought out policy, no?

Well we should be at war with Islam - Islam is at war with us. Although not as much when Muslims are fighting other Muslims if we just stay out of it.


"He [that would be Muhammad, the founder of Islam and Islam's "Perfect Man"] declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion [that would be Islam, not "Islamism", nor "Radical Islam", nor 'Islamists" nor "Islamofascism", nor "Hijacked Islam", but ISLAM!], against all the rest of mankind." (John Quincy Adams)

Well then appoint yourself a general and form an army of volunteers and get over there.

"Our foreign policy has descended into chaos, causing Iraq to slide into full-blown civil war. "

All this blaming America is getting very tiresome. The Iraqis are doing this themselves. Hey, in case you hadn't heard, Sunnis and Shiites don't much like each other and haven't for hundreds of years. If they want to have at it some more, it's not our responsibility to try to keep them apart. We are not their mom. We stayed there for 8 plus years and lost over 4,000 lives and way more limbs and over a trillion dollars for them. Enough is enough. Stop blaming America.

The leadership in this country, from the President down to the lowest levels is run by liberal/progressives and that means ineptitude rules. Liberal politics reigns, and the destruction of our country is their first priority. How soon these traitors have forgotten 9/11.

When a leadership is 'in sympathy' with Islamists what else can be expected, other than a fungible definition of 'who is a terrorist? Indeed.
There are so many proofs of the above it is hard to know where to begin. But just as an opening shot consider this:http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/14/fungible-definition-of-who-is-a-terrorist-invariably-leads-to-support-of-islamists-in-syria-sudan-elsewhere-when-politicsideology-trumps-morality-embedded-policy-paper-commentary-by/

This is the direct result of radical revolutionaries at the U.S. helm!

Depends on what the objective is, doesn't it? If the objective is to radically transform America, to humiliate and punish America, to promote all things Muslim, then it seems perfectly sensible. Some are trying to defend the United States of America, and others have other objectives.

The policy is coherent in its uniformity. It's the policy of the Democrats and Republicans. It's the policy of our military. It's the policy of all of Europe, Canada and Australia. It's everybody's policy.

The policy is so highly developed that Hillary signed not once, but twice, the OIC draft resolution for all UN members to make it a crime to criticize a religion. Unconstitutional, true. But we're not a nation of laws anymore, we're a nation of lawyers. No offense intended for McCarthy here.

Here's a pop quiz: which religion desperately needs criticizing, and which religion's members immediately go violent when criticized?
