Al-Qaeda snitch gets shrimp, strawberry Oreos and U.S. sitcoms at Guantánamo

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVY BASE, CUBA – A tortured al-Qaida terrorist turned prosecution witness is being rewarded with a comfortable cabin-style lockup where he can garden, paint, exercise, learn English by Rosetta Stone, cook meals for his interrogators and attorneys and watch American comedy TV.

In sworn testimony on Saturday Ahmed al Darbi, 42, described morphing from a lying, feces-flinging prisoner with a bad behavior record in the maximum-security Camp Five prison to a cooperating witness now cloistered in Camp Echo, an annex of the prison compound across the street.

Darbi has his own kitchen with a freezer stocked with meat and spices, and other never-before-disclosed perks to pass his time preparing to testify as a witness for the war court prosecutor in two cases, one that seeks the death-penalty.

Al-Qaeda Leader Sick of Jihadists ‘Who Cannot Hide a Secret’ from Wives

“…Al-Raymi lamented “brothers who cannot hide a secret even from their wife.”

“Then the woman gets on the phone and spreads information that so and so is in a particular place. Brothers have been killed by such irresponsible actions of a woman. From among the best of our people. Just because of such recklessness. Where is the responsibility?” he said.”

Al-Qaida moves in to recruit from Islamic State and its affiliates

Al-Qaida has been trying to win over extremists from Islamic State, while the Isis “caliphate” collapses amid heavy losses of men, material, territory and prestige.

The recruitment campaign started last summer, even before Isis had lost its final strongholds, underlining the importance al-Qaida attach to winning over fighters and resources from its rivals.

One such effort was launched by al-Qaida militants in Algeria in August. Ten fighters who had been with the small Isis affiliate in the country switched allegiance after debates with Islamic scholars loyal to al-Qaida, local security sources reported. A second was launched in Syria in September.

US seeks to extradite German al-Qaida member linked to 9/11

The United States is seeking to extradite a German convict who allegedly gave al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden critical support before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, New York prosecutors said Wednesday.

Department of Justice officials accused Christian Ganczarski of conspiracy to kill US citizens, providing material support to terrorists and conspiracy to provide material support to al-Qaida.

Ganczarski, who was born in Poland and later converted to Islam, allegedly met multiple times with senior leaders of the terrorist organization between 1999 and 2001 and developed close personal ties with bin Laden.

Senior Pentagon soldier warns ISIS: Quit, or be shot in the face, beaten with entrenching tools

The Pentagon’s senior enlisted service member has issued a blunt warning to Islamic State fighters, saying in new social-media posts that they could either surrender or face death in a number of forms, including being beaten to death with steel entrenching tools.

Army Command Sgt. Maj. John Wayne Troxell, the senior enlisted adviser in the Pentagon, issued the warnings on Facebook and Twitter. Senior U.S. officials, including Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, have warned Islamic State fighters for months that they must lay down their weapons or face annihilation, but Troxell’s message was unusually forceful.

“ISIS needs to understand that the Joint Force is on orders to annihilate them,” Troxell wrote on Facebook. “So, they have two options should they decide to come up against the United States, our allies and partners: surrender or die!”

Troxell added that the U.S.-led military coalition will provide militants who surrender with safety in a detainee cell, food, a cot and legal due process.

“HOWEVER, if they choose not to surrender, then we will kill them with extreme prejudice, whether that be through security force assistance, by dropping bombs on them, shooting them in the face, or beating them to death with our entrenching tools,” Troxell wrote. “Regardless, they cannot win, so they need to choose how it’s going to be.”

The posts were published Tuesday night along with a photograph of an entrenching tool — a collapsible shovel used by U.S. troops.

2015 al-Qaeda Article Showed How to Build NY Christmas Bulb Bomb

The summer 2015 issue of Inspire featured, in a step-by-step tutorial from “The AQ Chef,” a homemade IED recipe consisting of a pipe packed with shrapnel, a 9v battery, wires, and a Christmas light in the circuit to put a three-second delay on the explosion. Per the instructions, the Christmas bulb — al-Qaeda used a green light in their example — is altered and filled with explosive powder to act as a delayed ignitor.

Trove of Bin Laden documents reveal Iran’s secret dealings with al-Qaeda

A newly released trove of documents recovered from Osama bin Laden’s Pakistan compound have revealed “secret dealings” between Iran and al-Qaeda.

Nearly half a million files found on the computer seized in the May 2, 2011, US raid on the al-Qaeda founder’s hideout in Abbottabad were released by the CIA on Wednesday.

A never-before-seen 19-page document purportedly written by a senior member of al-Qaeda details an arrangement between Iran and members of the group to strike American interests in “Saudi Arabia and the Gulf.”

In exchange, Shia Iran offered Sunni militants “money, arms” and “training in Hizbollah camps in Lebanon.”

Justin is so keen on Iran, this will have him panting!

US Antifa and other Leftist groups met in Germany with al-Qaeda and ISIS to plot Trump’s destruction

These hard-Leftist groups, although they claim to be against fascism, are fascist to the core, wanting to shut down, violently if necessary, anyone who disagrees with them. They claim to be against hate, but are more hateful than anyone, and so they see natural allies in al-Qaeda and the Islamic State. Both hate the West, both hate the U.S., both hate the Judeo-Christian tradition, so they see each other as kindred spirits.

ISIS collapse: al-Qaeda recruits fleeing jihadists to renew their terror campaign

Islamic State and other groups are planning another terror attack of September 11 magnitude, a top US security chief has warned.

Elaine Duke, Donald Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security, said jihadists were using knife and van attacks to keep their members engaged and their finances flowing as they plot another “big explosion”, The Times reports.

Mrs Duke said at the US embassy in London that intelligence is pointing to extremists plotting to take down planes to inflict mass civilian casualties.

She said IS is currently in an “interim” period focusing on a much bigger endgame.

‘Burma Calling’: Al-Qaeda Orders Jihadists to Rescue Rohingya ‘by Force’

Al-Qaeda has called for jihadists to report to Burma to fight for the Rohingya minority as they fall victim to “a conspiracy hatched by the forces of International Disbelief against Islam and Muslims.”

In a statement issued by al-Qaeda’s general leadership, the terror group said the “conspiracy” is “marked by the usurpation of the rights of Muslims, occupation of their lands, defilement of their holy places, all under the guise of fighting terrorism!”
