In January 2008, a team of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents travelled to Ottawa to meet with RCMP leaders. They had stunning news. The DEA said an elite group of Middle East narco-terrorists in Colombia was using Canada as a key money laundering hub.
According to a former senior U.S. official with knowledge of the meeting, the DEA had “dirty calls” — meaning calls providing criminal evidence of cocaine shipments and cash movements in Canada — from narco-kingpins in Colombia to a network of operatives in Halifax, Vancouver, Calgary, and London, Ont.
…But RCMP leaders didn’t want to pursue the cases, according to the former official. He said the RCMP cited differences between Canadian and U.S. court disclosure rules, and questions about the DEA’s use of confidential sources.
It’s surely a coincidence that a Middle Eastern investor structured a sharia-compliant deal in the U.S. for 911 units, right?
Under pressure from the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Washington, D.C.-based group named an unindicted co-conspirator in a terror-funding case, a Texas library removed a graphic novel about super heroes fighting al-Qaida.
In November 2008, a jury returned guilty verdicts against the Texas-based Holy Land Foundation and five of its officials, after finding the charity had provided funding and support to the terrorist organization Hamas.
But ten years after the largest terror finance case in U.S. history, Islamist charities once linked to the Holy Land Foundation continue to operate with impunity. One particularly interesting example is Baitulmaal, another Texas-based international aid charity.
Millions of taxpayers dollars trafficked through food stamp fraud went to terrorists who funded their activities at home and abroad, according to an explosive report from the Government Accountability Institute (GAI).
A pro-ISIS media group issued an online threat against an FBI special agent-in-charge over the arrest of one of their American members on a charge of providing material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization.
Following the Middle East Forum’s exposé of a possible criminal investigation into Islamic Relief, the recipient of at least $700,000 in U.S. taxpayer funding, seven members of Congress have demanded answers from the federal government.
The purpose of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) is to take up issues to help combat war, poverty, civil unrest and human rights abuse and the like around the world; but what happens when NGOs go rogue?
The Government of Canada is knowingly sending taxpayers’ money down a path where it will end up in the hands of terrorist and/or extremists.
As the Trudeau Liberals try to use weasel words like ‘foreign fighters,’ ‘extremist travellers,’ and ‘Daesh,’ to avoid calling ISIS terrorists what they are, the government is facing mounting questions.
On Aug. 21, the New York City Council announced $250,000 in grants made to 14 Muslim community organizations, in collaboration with the New York Immigration Coalition. Alarmingly, three of the grant recipients are linked to Islamic extremism — the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).
A major Canadian Islamic organization has been suspended and fined by federal charities regulators following an audit that raised concerns it had “provided resources” that may have been used to support to armed militancy.
Someone sullied Islamic charities’ impeccable reputation? For shame.
Gregory Hubbard, 54, an ex-Marine, was arrested at Miami International Airport in July 2016 attempting to travel to Syria and fight on behalf of the Islamic State. He will receive 12 years in prison, the Justice Department announced.
Two co-defendants who plotted to provide guns and other help to the Islamic State received lesser sentences. Dayne Christian, 33, and Darren Arness Jackson, 52, were sentenced to eight and four years, respectively. Jackson drove Hubbard to the airport, prosecutors said.
For five months, Fox 9 has been investigating what appears to be rampant fraud in a massive state program.
This fraud is suspected of costing Minnesota taxpayers as much as $100 million a year.
The Fox 9 Investigators reporting is based on public records and nearly a dozen government sources who have direct knowledge of what is happening.
These sources have a deep fear, and there is evidence to support their concerns, that some of that public money is ending up in the hands of terrorists.
Of all the terrorist groups in the world, the Tamil Tigers used the civil war in Sri Lanka for Tamil independence to prove they were among the most ruthless guerrilla groups on the planet.
They are credited for inventing the suicide vest and pioneering the gender parity of having women lead the charge in suicide missions.
