FOLLOW the Al-Qaeda to ISIS trail…
HOW is it possible that HUSSEIN Obama’s State Dept. believes it is in the national interest to train ! avowed Islamists in U.S. counter terrorism techniques, regardless of the circumstances?
MIND you, for years, U.S. officials have more than a hand in creating….er, “training”…”mujahideen.” Interesting.
Commentary By Adina Kutnicki
(The U.S. State Department confirmed May 29, 2015 with CNN…how “transparent” of them…that Islamic State fighter Gulmurod Khalimov from Tajikistan was trained in the United State three times for counter terrorism instruction! )
FROM the get go, does the saying, once an Islamist, always an Islamist resonate? In other words, could America’s top leaders really be totally ignorant about what it means to be a COMMITTED “Pure Muslim?” On the flip side, the alternative is that they fully internalize what’s what, but they desire an anti-American outcome! Either way, U.S. policy is driven by fools or traitors. Pick your poison.
AS to this site’s position, well, it is not wishy washy…finger-in-the-air. It is clear-eyed and unapologetic. Thus, let’s place the onus re Obama Inc. and its State Department’s (and other agencies) treachery where it belongs – at their doorstep(s)!
NOW, before the naysayers jump into the fray, opining, U.S. agencies have to train so-called “good” Islamists to fight the “bad” Islamists, the fact remains that they should have learned their (blow back) lessons. They haven’t.
AND as a matter of historical (explosive) record, how many really understand how al-Qaeda became the mega force that resulted in 9/11/01, and the eventual parent of ISIS?
RECALL the following facts, and then assess whether decades of American decision-makers benefited national security – or not. Not a hard calculus to discern, unless one is a mental midget or a malignant traitor. Hmm.

Ronald Reagan meets Afghan Mujahideen Commanders at the White House in 1985 (Reagan Archives)
Preface: The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan – Lt. General William Odom – noted:
Because the United States itself has a long record of supporting terrorists and using terrorist tactics, the slogans of today’s war on terrorism merely makes the United States look hypocritical to the rest of the world.
Odom also said:
By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation.
This essay does not address any “inside job” theories for 9/11 or other terrorist attacks on America. Instead, it focuses on the well-documented fact that the virtually continuous U.S. backing of Al Qaeda terrorists since the late 1970s has led to blowback which has come back to bite us numerous times.
We Created Al Qaeda to Fight the Soviets in Afghanistan
Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski admitted on CNN that the U.S. organized and supported Bin Laden and the other originators of “Al Qaeda” in the 1970s to fight the Soviets.
Brzezinski told Al Qaeda’s forefathers – the Mujahadin:
We know of their deep belief in god – that they’re confident that their struggle will succeed. That land over – there is yours – and you’ll go back to it some day, because your fight will prevail, and you’ll have your homes, your mosques, back again, because your cause is right, and god is on your side.
CIA director and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates confirmed in his memoir that the U.S. backed the Mujahadin in the 1970s.
FAST forward from the 1970’s onward to the present, but only through a clearly focused lens. In essence, one will then be able to internalize how Islamists are catapulting from strength to strength, and with no end in sight! Consider the realities at hand:
LET’S be clear: HUSSEIN Obama’s State Department, in tandem with the CIA, created ISIS. For the stated record, soon after Benghazigate blew up, this investigative journalist assessed the following knock-on effects throughout several commentaries, but summed up its basis in a recent report:
AS the world is transfixed by the speed in which ISIS captured Ramadi and Palmyra, it must be internalized where the hydra-like monsters spawned from. This knowledge base will explain how they catapulted into top-tier status. Forthwith, let’s begin connecting the dots. It is only by taking the time to do so that we can properly extrapolate what HUSSEIN Obama’s game plan really is.
AS previously asserted (Oct. 2013) while assessing the illegal war into Libya – with Benghazigate as its outgrowth – it was specifically noted that the main objective was a weapons-running operation F/B/O Syrian Sunni jihadists and the empowerment of the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia. Concomitantly, the Brotherhood is the parent of al-Qaeda and ISIS is its offshoot.
MOREOVER, as the region started to melt down after Obama Inc’s. adventure into Libya, requisite players realized that Iraq’s forces were in no position to stand up to ISIS without multiplying its force power. Therefore, what else did they expect the knock-on effects of said quasi-intervention in Iraq would be, other than a complete mowing down by ISIS? Huh and duh…continue reading…
INTRINSICALLY, as repeatedly proven, ISIS is an offshoot of al-Qaeda in Iraq, andal-Qaeda is a product of the Brotherhood Mafia. Simple as that.
The Egyptian Minister of Religious Endowments says that the Islamic State terrorist group (also known as ISIS or ISIL) was birthed from the Muslim Brotherhoodmovement, according to an October 13 report in an Egyptian newspaper called theSeventh Day.
Other Egyptian leaders have made the case in recent days that the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist terrorist groups belong in the same category as the Islamic State. The Egyptian government has banned the Muslim Brotherhood and its Palestinian branch, Hamas, as terrorist groups.
According to the report, Dr. Mohamed Mokhtar Gomaa said that the Muslim Brotherhood is the progenitor of the Islamic State and similar terrorist groups. He accused the Brotherhood of disrupting education at Egyptian universities and said the group is harmful to Islam.
The Islamic State used to be Al-Qaeda’s branch in Iraq. Al-Qaeda’s leaders are known to have been influenced by the Brotherhood, but the two groups sparred over the latter’s relative restraint and involvement in elections.
The group originated as Jama’at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad in 1999, which pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda in 2004. The group participated in the Iraqi insurgency, which had followed the March 2003 invasion of Iraq. In January 2006, it joined other Sunni insurgent groups to form the Mujahideen Shura Council, which in October 2006 proclaimed the formation of the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI).
RESULTANT, why wouldn’t the very same “benefactors” of ISIS (al-Qaeda/MB alike) train a so-called Islamist “police commander” – plus countless others – rather than deny them elite training on U.S. soil too? Rhetorical.
Col. Gulmurod Khalimov, a former police commander from Tajikistan, is shown in black garb worn by the Islamic State group and holding a sniper rifle and a bandolier of ammunition in the terror group’s new video. He claims that he participated in training programs on U.S. soil three times, one of which was in Louisiana, CNN reported Friday.
“From 2003-2014 Colonel Khalimov participated in five counterterrorism training courses in the United States and in Tajikistan, through the Department of State’s Diplomatic Security/Anti-Terrorism Assistance program,” Pooja Jhunjhunwala, a spokeswoman for the State Department, told CNN.
Now Mr. Khalimov has joined the very kind of terrorists he was trained to fight.
Experts say Mr. Khalimov’s counterterrorism experience will give him a major advantage against U.S. forces.
“The real problem is he knows how to plan counterterrorism operations, so he knows how the people who protect the high value target will be thinking. He knows how the people who protect an embassy will be thinking,” Michael Breen, former Army intelligence officer and now-executive director of the Truman National Security Project, told CNN. “That puts him in a position, as we say in the military, to ‘red team’ that, to think very intelligently about how to disrupt those plans. That’s a dangerous capability.”
Mr. Khalimov says that he joined the Islamic State because what he saw in his training sessions turned him against his sponsors.
“Listen, you American pigs: I’ve been to America three times. I saw how you train soldiers to kill Muslims,” he says in Russian, CNN reported. “You taught your soldiers how to surround and attack, in order to exterminate Islam and Muslims.”
BOTTOM LINE: those who fully recognize that Islamist related decisions made by past Presidents (whatever happened to hindsight is 20/20?) are now boomeranging onto America’s security – and with a vengeance – must think outside-the-box. Said thinking leads to only one rational conclusion: HUSSEIN Obama’s ultimate knock-on effects will be cataclysmic, as intended.
SO since Obama Inc.’s State Dept. sees nothing amiss about training Islamists in U.S. counter terrorism techniques – knowing full well that the results of doing so brought 9/11/01 upon America, plus other blow back – what exactly do they expect to happen this go around?
THE answer to the above “query” leads us to the most frightening conclusion, bar none. Ponder its national (and geo-political) meaning.
