Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol, engaged to Jihadi-killing, United States Marine Medal of Honor recipient, Dakota Meyer

Meyer was awarded the Medal of Honor in 2011 after repeatedly charging into a kill zone during a 2009 ambush in Kunar Province, Afghanistan in search of four of his missing Marines.

Meyer received the nation’s highest military honor for braving enemy fire in 2009 to recover 36 American and Afghan troops in Afghanistan. He was the third living recipient — and the first Marine — to be awarded the Medal of Honor for actions in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Meyer, 26, proposed to Palin, 24, Friday night at a Rascal Flatts concert in Las Vegas, Palin said on her blog.

“The lead singer, Gary LeVox, dedicated ‘Bless the Broken Road’ to us, and then Dakota got down on one knee and proposed!” she wrote. “It’s amazing to see what happens when you place everything in life in God’s hands.”

Friends and well-wishers congratulated the couple on the news. As one person said in a comment on Meyer’s Instagram, “This is so ‘MERICA that my mind is blown right now.”

Sarah Palin also congratulated the couple, noting that Meyer “flew up North” to ask Bristol Palin’s father and grandfather for her hand in marriage.

“Our families couldn’t be happier for Bristol and Dakota! We’re honored to welcome Dakota into our family. He’s an American hero and patriot whose service to our country — like all his fellow Medal of Honor recipients — has been above and beyond the call of duty; but even more important is he’s a good and kind man who loves Bristol and Tripp, and is loved by them,” she said on Facebook

“Yes, God working behind the scenes to turn beauty from ashes. Had tough circumstances in their lives not occurred, and had they reacted differently to those circumstances, they’d have never met.”

Meyer’s Medal of Honor Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving with Marine Embedded Training Team 2-8, Regional Corps Advisory Command 3-7, in Kunar Province, Afghanistan, on 8 September 2009. Corporal Meyer maintained security at a patrol rally point while other members of his team moved on foot with two platoons of Afghan National Army and Border Police into the village of Ganjgal for a pre-dawn meeting with village elders.

Moving into the village, the patrol was ambushed by more than 50 enemy fighters firing rocket propelled grenades, mortars, and machine guns from houses and fortified positions on the slopes above. Hearing over the radio that four U.S. team members were cut off, Corporal Meyer seized the initiative.

With a fellow Marine driving, Corporal Meyer took the exposed gunner’s position in a gun-truck as they drove down the steeply terraced terrain in a daring attempt to disrupt the enemy attack and locate the trapped U.S. team.

Disregarding intense enemy fire now concentrated on their lone vehicle, Corporal Meyer killed a number of enemy fighters with the mounted machine guns and his rifle, some at near point blank range, as he and his driver made three solo trips into the ambush area. During the first two trips, he and his driver evacuated two dozen Afghan soldiers, many of whom were wounded.

When one machine gun became inoperable, he directed a return to the rally point to switch to another gun-truck for a third trip into the ambush area where his accurate fire directly supported the remaining U.S. personnel and Afghan soldiers fighting their way out of the ambush. Despite a shrapnel wound to his arm, Corporal Meyer made two more trips into the ambush area in a third gun-truck accompanied by four other Afghan vehicles to recover more wounded Afghan soldiers and search for the missing U.S. team members.

Still under heavy enemy fire, he dismounted the vehicle on the fifth trip and moved on foot to locate and recover the bodies of his team members. Corporal Meyer’s daring initiative and bold fighting spirit throughout the 6-hour battle significantly disrupted the enemy’s attack and inspired the members of the combined force to fight on.

His unwavering courage and steadfast devotion to his U.S. and Afghan comrades in the face of almost certain death reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service.

BRITISH COURAGE! Teenaged Army Cadets will wear their uniforms in public despite Islamic terrorist threats

01_NH08CCF_1134547kA 17-year-old Army cadet, Michelle Hughes (right), has chosen to defy terrorist threats by wearing her cadet uniform to and from school. All police and military personnel, including members of the combined cadet force, have been advised not to wear their uniforms in public due to increased risk of attack from Islamic jihadists.

article-2661933-1EE9CFB400000578-216_634x187

Breitbart  Intelligence gathered late last year suggested that some jihadist cells in Britain were hoping to stage attacks similar to that which claimed the life of Fusilier Lee Rigby on the streets of London in 2013. Consequently, last December army chiefs issued advice to all cadets not to wear their uniform in public. The warning came a week after police and military personnel were similarly advised.

Andrew Halls, headmaster of King’s College School (KCS) in Wimbledon, southwest London, wrote to the parents of children at the school who belong to its Combined Cadet Force, passing along the military’s advice.

But Michelle Hughes, who already has 12 A* GCSEs to her name and has represented England at athletics, chose to ignore the advice. “I saw the email from the headmaster and so did my mum, but I was going to wear the CCF uniform anyway,” she said. “I don’t really feel at risk. My mum wrote back to the school saying that she had not brought us up to be scared of anything.” She added that a number of her fellow cadets had also chosen to wear their uniforms in public.

Her mother Rose Hughes, a single mother of four who came to Britain from Nigeria, said: “I am not going to be afraid of evil frustrated people. That is the way I brought up my children. I brought them up to work hard and achieve and fulfil their potential.

“There are crazy people out there who take their frustrations in life out on other people, but this country is peaceful and I do not want my children to be afraid. Let the terrorists be afraid, they are the ones who should hide.

“It is a wonderful privilege to be alive and to live in a country like Britain. Nothing is risk-free, but on the whole this country is safe. I want my children to be on the right side of life, to do the right thing and fulfil their potential. The only thing you have to be afraid of in life is fear.”

PrestonMilShow_2011_019_rdax_502x335

Halls said that he respected the decision, but felt that it was his duty to pass on the message.  “I respect Michelle’s mum’s message. I think it is admirable, but I would not want to enforce it if anyone did not feel comfortable with it. What would be really awful would be if we packed in the CCF because we thought it was risky . . . We have two boys in the sixth form on army scholarships and we are very proud of that.”

The CCF, founded in 1948, has almost 43,000 cadets divided into army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and Royal Marines sections. There are more than 260 CCF units in British schools, of which the vast majority – about 200 – are within private schools.

The CCF says its aim is “to enable the development of personal responsibility, leadership and self-discipline”. Cadets learn an array of skills depending on which branch they join, but all are taught to drill and to fire the L98A2 5.56mm Cadet General Purpose rifle.

Thomas Garnier, who is both headmaster of Pangbourne College in Berkshire and the liaison between schools with CCFs and the army, said it was up to each school to interpret the advice given by the army to suit their circumstances. “Given the different situations schools are in, a school in an inner city might take a different view to a school in the country where pupils board,” he said.

In contrast with Kings College School, Richard Cairns, headmaster of Brighton College, said that all his pupils were instructed to change into their uniforms only once they had reached the school. “You have got to put the potential risk to children first,” he said.

Garnier commented that the decision to wear the uniform in public “does seem brave”, adding: “They [the cadets] have a right to say they are not afraid of this threat, to say: we are not afraid of people who want us to feel afraid.”

OBAMA REGIME scrubs major attack on the Islamic State (ISIS) in Mosul indefinitely

c85bb63aa66916f7c375f80aec1fb66bJust days ago, the generals were trumpeting plans to knock Islamic State (ISIS) savages out of Mosul, its most important stronghold in Iraq, in the next few weeks. Now, those plans are on indefinite hold. Fall is more realistic. But even that date is tenuous.

The Daily Beast  The U.S. military’s goal to retake Iraq’s second largest city from the self-proclaimed Islamic State has been pushed back several months at least, defense officials told The Daily Beast. That’s a major shift for the Pentagon, which recently announced that the first major ground offensive in the war against ISIS could come in the next few weeks.

2014_09-03-sotloff-beheaded

Defense officials once hoped that Iraqi troops could move into Mosul by the Spring and reclaim the city from ISIS. Now, those officials say, Fall is more realistic. And even that date was tenuous.

“It is an Iraqi decision (sure it is) but we don’t want to do anything until they are ready and can win decisively,” a military official explained to the Daily Beast. “They cannot now.”

It’s another sign that the U.S.-led campaign against ISIS isn’t going nearly as smoothly as the American government had hoped. (There is no campaign, that’s the problem) At the Pentagon Friday, Defense Department spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby shied away from any kind of timeline, saying: “I can’t put a date certain…nor say April is out.”

AL QAEDA - Obama co White House SUPPORTS AL QAEDA MASS-MURDER in ME !!

A group within U.S. government pushed for a Spring offensive out of concern that the next opportunity to launch such a campaign would not be until the Fall. But these policymakers appeared to have been trumped by those fearing that Iraqi forces are nowhere near ready.

The shift away from the Spring began in the last few days, in part because officials could not agree publicly about whether the Iraqi forces would be ready for the fight. Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart told the Senate Armed Services Committee Thursday that it would be “six to nine months, best estimate,” before Iraqi forces could be able to launch a major counteroffensive against ISIS.

“When we talk about the six to nine months additional training, it is to deal with an urban fight, which is very, very different, very complex, requires a great deal of skill, great deal of precision to be successful,” Stewart said. (I guess the fact we have been training the Iraqi Army in urban warfare for at least 8 years already is irrelevant?)

Earlier this month, a U.S. Central Command official gave a briefing to reporters saying that Iraqi forces could be ready by April or May to launch an offensive to take back the northern Iraqi city of Mosul from ISIS, where the group is entrenched. ISIS has controlled Mosul since June, when Iraqi troops fled their posts as ISIS forces stormed the city.

ISIS

The proposed offensive would take as many as 25,000 troops assigned to at least eight Iraqi brigades, the CENTCOM official said on the condition of anonymity. The forces would seek to root out 2,000 ISIS fighters, he added. U.S. forces would support that campaign by the air, but the CENTCOM official did not offer any specifics.

There were sectarian considerations, as well. The Iraqi divisions who would likely lead such a campaign are majority Shiite forces; Mosul is a Sunni-dominated town and such sectarian delineations are important to all involved. Many worried that Sunnis in both Iraq and the broader Arab world would not accept a Shiite-dominated military force leading the campaign.

Still others were angry that the U.S. military decided to telegraph the mission and the details of it. Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham blasted the announcement in a letter to President Obama, calling the disclosure a risk to “the success of our mission, but could also cost the lives of U.S., Iraqi, and coalition forces.” (McCain can’t seem to decide which side he’s on)

VERY SAD: U.S. Marine, whose career was destroyed for urinating on Taliban terrorist corpses in Afghanistan, dies of drug overdose at 28

Urinating MarinesRob Richards, who left the military in 2013 under a cloud of controversy after video circulated of him and members of his platoon urinating on dead Taliban terrorists in Afghanistan, had his cremated remains buried with military honors at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia this month.

NY Daily News  “He served with honor … gave so much … and bled for our freedom,” a Navy chaplain said at the somber proceeding, as Richards’ mom, wife and grandfather, a veteran himself, looked on, the Washington Post reported. “Today we lay him to rest in a fitting place.”

EP-140829760

Richards died last August of an accidental prescription drug overdose. He was 28 and survived three tours of duty in Afghanistan as a Marine sniper.

His wife, Raechel, found his body on the floor of their home in Camp Lejeune, N.C., after he struggled for months with opiate abuse, she told the Washington Post.

The couple planned to move to Orlando, Fla., where they would get a new start, away from the 2013 court martial that ended with Richards given a plea deal that reduced his rank to corporal and an honorable discharge from the military.

Despite his decorated career and dedication to his country, Richards’ time abroad was judged — and vilified — on the nearly 40 second video, released anonymously on YouTube in January 2012.

Richards and three comrades were filmed peeing on Taliban soldiers they had just shot dead. The killings, as well as the desecration of the bodies, were in retaliation for a Marine killed by the Taliban who had a limb severed and hung from a tree, according to former Sgt. Edward Deptola, who was Richards’s platoon sergeant.

Deptola was also court martialed in the incident and demoted one rank for his role.

“Someone said, ‘Piss on these guys?’, ” a Marine told the Washington Post while recalling what had happened years earlier in Afghanistan the night before the funeral. “And someone else was like, ‘Yeah, you know what, let’s piss on them.’  ”

 “Because killing them wasn’t enough,” Deptola said. “That wasn’t enough justice.”

AFGHAN AUG 27 2012 DTN NEWS 4

Most of the Marines involved in the incident have spoken out, saying they have no regrets about what they did that day

Roberts, who didn’t publicly condone or condemn his actions, had shown symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder stemming from his tours but had “finally come to terms with” the fact that the video would follow him the rest of his life.

He felt backed into a corner,” his wife Raechel told the Washington Post. “He always said, ‘It’s all I’ll ever be known for.’ ”

She thought the couple had turned a corner and was prepared for a different life in Florida when tragedy struck. They’d briefly separated and he had gone to drug counseling for his pill addiction. 

Her husband’s remains were buried in a canister bearing a favorite Ernest Hemingway quote: “There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.”

OUTRAGEOUS! U.S. Marines ordered by State Department to turn over their weapons during Yemen evacuation

A senior defense official has confirmed to Fox News that Marines were directed to turn over their weapons after leaving the U.S. embassy in Yemen, even though they were under fire.

FOX News  Veteran and Fox News contributor Pete Hegseth was on “The Kelly File” to sound off on the order, which reportedly came from the U.S. State Department. “So, we’re surrendering around the world, we’re surrendering our embassy, and now we’re asking U.S. Marines to surrender their dignity, give up oaths that they made, creeds that they live by, and surrender their rifle,” Hegseth said.

Rumors were flying that King Abdullah of Jordan would pilot some bombing strikes against ISIS

unnamed

Jordanian government spokesman Muhammad al-Momani denied reports that the King personally participated in bombing raids against ISIS, in a statement issued Thursday. But he certainly could have and may still do it. He is more than qualified.

Daily Caller (h/t Liz) It was reported that Jordan’s King Abdullah ibn al-Hussein, Jordan’s King Abdullah, a former general and special forces commander, who has trained as a pilot, may fly a bomber himself on Thursday in the country’s retaliation against the ISIS.

King Abdullah

Several Arabic-language newspapers reported late Wednesday that the monarch would personally participate in bombing raids on the terrorist group, citing his vow Tuesday to “strike them in their strongholds.”

The king was in Washington when news broke Tuesday of pilot Muadh al-Kasasbeh’s demise at the hands of ISIS extremists. Meeting with the House Armed Services Committee shortly before leaving for Amman, he reportedly quoted the Clint Eastwood’s film “Unforgiven” and said that Jordan would pursue the jihadis until it ran “out of fuel and bullets.”

Rep. Duncan Hunter, a Marine vet, who was in the meeting, told Fox News that given the ruler’s immediate and vehement reaction, “King Abdullah is not Barack Obama.”

A terse initial statement from the Jordanian Air Force on Thursday said that planes had returned from a retaliatory mission, and that they passed over Kasasbeh’s hometown of Karak, presumably in a gesture of condolence, before landing in Amman. The deceased pilot’s father, Safi al-Kasasbeh, reported a phone call from the king, saying that the planes attacked Raqqa, ISIS’ de facto capital in Syria, though the military has not confirmed the attack’s target.

UPDATE: Jordan bombing kills Islamic State commander and 55 ISIS savage!

Jordanian-Air-Force-1

BizPac Review (h/t Mike F) Jordan is making good on its threat of revenge for the burning alive of a Jordanian pilot by the Islamic State.  The Jordanian Air Force killed 55 ISIS fighters, including a top-level Islamic State leader known as the “Prince of Nineveh” in air strikes carried out Wednesday, according to Iraqi media.

A Jordanian government spokesman told Reuters that the Middle Eastern kingdom will increase its role in the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS and that they are leaving all options on the table. 

Abdullah is setting an example on fighting ISIS that other leaders should follow. Particularly the one who lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

After a White House-ordered lengthy delay, ARMY finally will charge Bowe Bergdahl with desertion, a decision that Obama is still trying to stonewall

Bowe Bergdahl, deserter and traitor

Bowe Bergdahl, deserter and traitor

The soldier who converted to Islam and left his post in Afghanistan to join the Taliban will be charged with desertion, a decision with which Barack Hussein Obama, who exchanged five dangerous Taliban terrorists from Guantanamo for him, disagrees. (Both of them should be charged with treason)

Washington Times Lt. Col. Tony Schaffer (Ret) said two separate military sources have confirmed to him that Sgt. Bergdahl’s attorney has been given a “charge sheet,” listing out the articles of the uniform military code that have been violated. “The army has come to its conclusion and Bowe Bergdahl will be charged with desertion,” Mr. Shaffer said.

Following the much-criticized exchange, the Army conducted an investigation into his actions, which concluded three months ago. Mr. Shaffer also accused the Obama administration of trying to keep the detail of Sgt. Bergdahl’s charges hidden.

“This is shaping up to be a titanic struggle behind the scenes,” he said. “Believe me, the Army here wants to do the right thing … And the White House, because of the political narrative, President Obama cozying up to the parents and because he, President Obama, releasing the five Taliban … The narrative is what the White House does not want to have come out.”

Islamic State (ISIS) claims to have hacked CENTCOM Twitter account

centcomtwitter_hacked-550x635

As Barack Hussein Obama ran his mouth to the nation regarding national cyber security efforts, hackers claiming to represent the Islamic State (ISIS) took over the Twitter account of the Pentagon division in charge of the Middle East.

Free Beacon  Hackers with the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, posted links on U.S. Central Command’s official Twitter page to what it claimed was “confidential data from your mobile devices.”

“ISIS is already here, we are in your PCs, in each military base. With Allah’s permission we are in CENTCOM now,” said one tweet sent from CENTCOM’s account.

The apparent hack came as President Obama addressed the nation regarding cyber security. He is expected to propose two pieces of cyber security legislation and to address the effort in his upcoming State of the Union address.

The hackers subsequently tweeted images of spreadsheets containing the home addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of dozens of current and former senior U.S. military officers.

“AMERICAN SOLDIERS, WE ARE COMING WATCH YOUR BACK,” one tweet stated.

Hackers appear to have also compromised CENTCOM’s official YouTube page, where they posted a pair of IS propaganda videos.

Another reason why all Muslims should be barred from serving in the U.S. military

Is Terry Holdbrooks aka Mustafa Abdullah, a propaganda agent for the sworn enemies of the United States of America?  That is a question for you and our government to answer.

mustafaterryholdbrooks

ALAN KORNMAN  In August 2002, Terry C. Holdbrooks Jr. (19), aka Mustafa Abdullah, enlisted in the US Army.  In June of 2003, Mr. Holdbrooks first deployment was to Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp (GITMO) as a prison guard.  Mr. Holdbrooks served as a military police officer with the rank of Specialist in the US Army between 2002 and 2005, attached to the 252nd Military Police, and later assigned to the 463rd MP Company.

Is Terry Holdbrooks A Traitor?

Six months into his GITMO assignment,  Mr. Holdbrooks embraced his Sunni Muslim al-Qaeda terrorist detainees ideology by joining their ranks as a new revert/convert to Islamic doctrine and theology.  Islamic doctrine teaches that all people are born Muslim and revert back to their original state when they accept Islam, thus they are referred to as Muslim reverts.

Mr. Holdbrooks articulated an important revelation during his Dec 12, 2014 lecture at the American Muslim Community Center Mosque in Longwood, FL relating to the behavior of the al-Qaeda detainees when he accepted  Islam as his new way of life.  Muslim terrorists are taught to play dumb when they are taken captive, that was until a non-Muslim guard converted to Islam. Mr. Holdbrooks says, “Detainees came out of the woodwork and most all could speak English as they were celebrating his becoming a Muslim.”

The detainees ability to speak english is important, most detainees hide this fact from their American captors hampering interrogations and costing American lives in lost intel. Mr. Holdbrooks makes no mention of reporting this incredibly valuable intelligence to his superiors.  Mr. Holdbrooks has picked sides in our military engagement with Islamic Jihad befriending his Al Qaeda sympathetic detainees Shaker Aamer, Ahmed Errachidi, and countless other(s).

Terry Holdbrooks Hates His Fellow American Soldiers

Mr. Holdbrooks does not hold his fellow American soldiers in as high regard as he does his al-Qaeda and Taliban terrorist detainees. Mr. Holdbrooks says, “I was questioning things from day one”, “I didn’t have a very high impression of my colleagues,” he says. Many of them were “ridiculous Budweiser-drinking, cornbread-fed, tobacco-chewing drunks, racists and bigots…who blindly follow orders, and within months stopped talking to them altogether…”

Mr. Holdbrooks explains his fascination with how the Muslim detainees would always appear happy embracing their Islamic way of life, under the harshest of situations.  Terry Holdbrooks couldn’t understand why he felt miserable inside, and his Al Qaeda and Taliban detainees seemed to be at peace with themselves.

The Army would later say that Mr. Holdbrooks has a personality disorder and was released before fulfilling his full commission.  In doing so – Terry Holdbrooks transformed himself into the marketable GITMO Guard Who Became a Muslim.

Mr. Holdbrooks says at the Longwood, FL Mosque that, “92% of the Gitmo detainees are innocent.”  The Director of National Intelligence released a “Summary of the Reengagement of Detainees Formerly Held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba” “Of the 603 former detainees tracked by US intelligence services, a total of 100 have now been confirmed as reengaging in “terrorism” or “insurgent” activities, while another 74 are suspected of reengaging.  This brings the total rate of recidivism to nearly 29 percent”, as reported in The Weekly Standard, 9/9/2013.

The GITMO detainees recidivism rate further exposes Mr. Holdbrooks spreading of pro Al-Qaeda propaganda in an effort to degrade our military efforts in removing and housing dangerous Islamic terrorists captured off the battlefield.  I suspect, Mr. Holdbrooks knows the false narrative of the GITMO detainees innocence provides fuel to those forces who wish to see GITMO closed forever.

After Mr. Holdbrooks AMCC Longwood Mosque lecture I had the opportunity to ask him if the Salafist views taught to him by detainees Shaker Aamer and Ahmed Errachidi, had influenced the Islam he was taught by his friends who were also high level al-Qaeda recruiters?

Mr. Holbrooks says, “Shaker Aamer is a brilliant and amazing man, I hate to think how his mental health has deteriorated.  However, when I first met him at Guantanamo he weighed around 250 lbs and when I left Guantanamo he dropped to around 175, obviously that was a combination of the hunger strikes.  He was a very influential individual but he could have mood swings, at times you would have to take what he said with a grain of salt and fact check if what he said was balanced and moderate.  I’ve heard of all the possibilities of his being an al-Qaeda recruiter…the first Qur’an that was given to me was the Yusuf Ali Meaning of the Holy Qur’an…what he (Rashidi) said was not always copacetic, so the answer is NO.”

Mr. Holbrooks answer is deceptive, Shaker Aamer and Ahmed Errachide are brilliant Islamic scholars according to this 2009 interview with cageprisoners.com.  Mr. Holdbrooks says this about Shaker Aamer, “…he’s a wonderful character- unbelievably intelligent, very polite, very well-mannered, great etiquette.  He is a very rational individual – if there was something he didn’t agree with, that he objected to, he’d explain it.  He’d be very polite no matter whom the guard was he was working with whether it was a very ignorant uncaring American with no recognition for his situation, or me, or Chris perhaps – he is always a very polite individual, and would explain whatever was going on in terms that anyone would be able to understand.  He is a wonderful person- I absolutely enjoyed spending time with him.”   Mr. Holdbrooks analysis of Shaker Aamer is opposite of what he told me on December 12, 2014. 

Is the 2009 Terry Holdbrooks telling the truth about Al-Qaeda terrorist Shaker Aamer or what he told me on December 12, 2014 – both versions can’t be true?

So why the deception from Mr. Holdbrooks?  When I purposefully added the Salafi qualifier to the question of what was taught him by his terrorist friends, it created a psychological problem for him because Mr. Holdbrooks never denied he followed the Salafi movement – a fact which is very important. Mr. Holdbrooks knows that Salafi Islam is one of the most fundamental and violent Islamic teachings.  The Salafi Jihadist movement is described this way, ” The Salafi jihadist movement has attracted rootless and or committed internationalist militants. They fight for the jihad, seeking to re-create the Muslim ummah and shariat (Islamic Law) to build an Islamic community. Simultaneously conservatives and radical, they form a global network that has attracted Muslims from around the world to fight jihad in Kashmir, Bosnia, Chechnya, Afghanistan, and the Philippines.”

In a 2009 Cageprisoner.com interview,  Terry Holdbrooks is asked if he formed any kind of relationships with the detainees.  Mr. Holdbrooks responds, “A good number of them… Detainee 590; ‘the General’, as we call him.  There were rumors for most of the detainees as to how they received the nick names they had.  We’d talk for hours and hours – we’d talk about books, we’d talk about music, we’d talk about philosophy, we would talk about religion…fortunately he didn’t have anything bad to say about the US other than its most recent history…More often than not when I got the night shift I would generally stay up and talk with him throughout the night- we’d talk about the history of this war, what’s been going on, what’s taking place in the Middle East for the last two hundred, three hundred, four hundred years…590 stayed up one night and- we’d been talking about Islam for quite a while- I’d been studying Islam for quite a while at this point, and one night he stayed up with me and he transliterated how to say in English the declaration of faith, and watched me as I said it, and whatnot.  So I would say the first time I declared my faith in Islam was probably in Guantanamo- was probably that night, with him.”

Terry Holdbrooks sounds enamored with Al-Qaida detainee 590.  Based on this Al-Qaeda fighters world view on Islam as a life choice, Terry Holdbrooks chose Al-Qaida.

SHOCKING! Filthy Muslim Obama paid $5 billion (yes, BILLION) and exchanged 5 Taliban terrorists for Army deserter/traitor Bowe Bergdahl!

treason

Lt. Colonel Tony Shaffer, author of The Last Line, and Ret. Col. David Hunt joined Bill O’Reilly to give an update on the Bowe Bergdahl prisoner swap. He told Bill the Obama administration paid $5 billion and released five top Taliban Gitmo detainees in exchange for deserter/traitor Bowe Bergdahl.

Even worse, scumbag Bergdahl was given $300,000 in back pay which he will be able to keep even if given a less than honorable discharge.
