Total Failure Of Foreign Intelligence As Spy Agencies Miss Massive Al Qaeda Prison Break

21 172

They’ve spent hundreds of billions of dollars to monitor the activities of every single American by turning their listening networks on purported domestic terrorists operating in the United States.

spy-gear-1They know your underwear size. They know where you drove your car today. They know what you put up on Facebook, texted to your wife and emailed to your friends. And they’ve done it all in the supposed interest of “national security.”

If, however, you were an Al Qaeda terrorist coordinating a large-scale prison break to free senior members of your mid-east terror organization, you would have been able to operate with impunity.

As you read the following report from Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq keep in mind that the National Security Agency operates under authorization from Executive Order 12333. The agency was originally tasked not with “acquiring information concerning the domestic activities of United States persons,” but with analyzing information and data of foreign intelligence and counterintelligence value.

Hundreds of convicts, including senior members of al Qaeda, broke out of Iraq’s Abu Ghraib jail as comrades launched a military-style assault to free them, authorities said on Monday.

The deadly raid on the high-security jail happened as Sunni Muslim militants are gaining momentum in their insurgency against the Shi’ite-led government that came to power after the U.S. invasion to oust Saddam Hussein.

Suicide bombers drove cars packed with explosives to the gates of the prison on the outskirts of Baghdad on Sunday night and blasted their way into the compound, while gunmen attacked guards with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades.

Other militants took up positions near the main road, fighting off security reinforcements sent from Baghdad as several militants wearing suicide vests entered the prison on foot to help free the inmates.

Ten policemen and four militants were killed in the ensuing clashes, which continued until Monday morning, when military helicopters arrived, helping to regain control.

The number of escaped inmates has reached 500, most of them were convicted senior members of al Qaeda and had received death sentences,” Hakim Al-Zamili, a senior member of the security and defense committee in parliament, told Reuters.

“The security forces arrested some of them, but the rest are still free.”

One security official told Reuters on condition of anonymity: “It’s obviously a terrorist attack carried out by al Qaeda to free convicted terrorists with al Qaeda.”

Two Words: EPIC FAIL.

While our government is supposedly preventing terrorism by searching grandma at airports, arresting kids for making jokes on the internet, deploying thousands of drones over America’s skies, and looking for lone wolves, they have failed at their absolute top priority: stopping actual terrorists from doing what terrorists do.

The fact that an unknown number of senior members of Al Qaeda, who we as a nation likely spent hundreds of millions of dollars and countless lives to capture, have been freed from prison in what can only be described as a premeditated coordinated attack is a complete failure of our foreign intelligence directives.

The challenge we now face is that senior Al Qaeda leaders who have likely been tortured and spent years in the hellhole of Abu Ghraib are now out in droves and they have one thing on their mind – to kill as many American men, women and children as they can before we catch or kill them.

Perhaps our spy agencies and the highly trained individuals monitoring domestic data streams would better serve the national security of the American people by turning their efforts back to what they were originally intended to do.

Will this be a wake up call for our Chief Executive and his security Czars to focus the attention of our signals intelligence and security community to the real threat facing America?

Or is identifying and stopping foreign terrorists no longer the priority?

    Way to go team America!!! Hope you enjoyed hearing what Nancy is wearing to the dance on Friday night!

    Obama will probably pretend it didn’t happen. Has the liberal media reported the incident? It doesn’t fit the Narrative that Obama has al Qaeda on the run.
    Except in Syria, where Obama is arming them, in a clear act of treason.

    The problem with it is that the agency is deliberately inundating itself with literally, trillions of bytes of information on its own citizens, to the point that they can’t even catch a bomber when another country calls TWICE and reports that the bomber has been making friends with terrorists and is planning to attack Americans. Now, that information was not even digital. It was a direct call, information that added with the fact that they had already been identified as a terrorist threat should have set off warning bells that resulted in arrests. Instead, what is the excuse given by our great and terrible leader? Apparently, the information was lost, the no fly list was in error, blah, blah blah.

    If the NSA and the intelligence agencies in this country that are, by law, tasked not with surveilling American citizens (and in fact, are prohibited from doing so by law-that’s why we have the FBI), but foreign entities and the external internet to look for unusual activities, they might have actually caught that there was something massive in the works. Nope. These geniuses are convinced that it is grandma and little children who pose the real threat to the well being of the US. After all, they could grow up….conservative. Oh, the horror!

    All these bloaded government agencies are for one purpose to get workers on our dime to keep the rats in office that give them our dimes. Thank God our boys were not their(at least I hope). If these al qaeda were dead in the first place you wouldn’t have this problem. If the situation was reversed do you think they would have a jail for us?

    One word: WOW!

    1. Krazeehors says

      Reminds me of the operation the US had in the Philippines in WWII — The Great Raid. They probably studied that and other tactics to pull this off. All except for the suicide bombers.

      1. blair152 says

        I read the book about it. It’s called GHOST SOLDIERS. The author’s Hampton Sides. It was profiled on the Fox News Channel show War Stories w/ Oliver North. Good read. I never saw the movie The Great Raid. Unfortunately, it’s the greatest raid you never heard of, because it was overshadowed by the invasion of Iwo Jima.

        1. Krazeehors says

          Wow. The movie was absolutely FABULOUS, and is rarely shown on cable. I have been looking for the movie on Blu-Ray without success for a long time. It also has a lot of film of the actual soldiers rescued.
          I will definitely read the book. Thank you.

          1. blair152 says

            It should be on the Military Channel’s An Officer and A Movie. I saw Rescue Dawn with Christian Bale. Another good movie.

          2. blair152 says

            You’re welcome. It’s a good read.

      I too, sit here and shake my head…..

    The attack was probably successful because Obama wanted it to be. We’ll no doubt find out that our intelligence sources reported the signs but were told to “stand down.” Obama wanted to release them all, as they are fellow Muslims. At least this way they are free in Iraq and not in New York City, although it may be hard to tell the difference.

    ObamaVoters, are you starting to get it?

  7. Jay Star says

    All one can do is shake their head in disgust! This administration seems to be not interested in fighting the true enemy of the United States, but destroying America from the inside. Who knows where their loyalties lie. It sure doesnt appear to be with “We the People”!

  8. $12994363 says

    Wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to find out that OUR “leaders” helped set it all up.

  9. disqus_hNXvhwdNeI says

    Another story that’s being ignored by the MSM. Shameful.

  10. James Maxwell says

    Rather than epic failure it sound more like a conspiracy by the government and politicos to free them
    while being able to claim “I know nothing,” There are to may flies around this to come out any other
    way also.

  11. Phillipe Violette says

    I am sure obumer cheered the break out cause more of his pals are now free to attack and murder more innocent people again.

  12. ken345 says

    Looking at Obama’s recent activity it’s not too far fetched to think that the guys attacking the prison were using weapons given to them by us or sold to them by us, or received some other material help from us. The administration, as we speak, is now scouring YouTube for a video to blame the attack on…

  13. gunny55 says

    If they were convicted and sentenced to death, why weren’t they kickin and twistin in the breeze?

    1. Clint says

      Probably for the same reason we in America have our death rows occupied by convicted inmates who have been there for 20 years or longer. Liberal bleeding hearts.

  14. Billy says

    Our leader and commander and chief, thanks that we should apologize for there hatred of the US and the repeated attacks killing US citizens. For some unseen reason thinks that Al Qaeda terrorist are not dangerous and for some reason all of this is the US fault. He has done everything he can to attack US citizens and blame us as being dangerous and claiming that the Muslim base Al Qaeda are not. The president has continue to give them money from hard working tax payer from the US to in some way make up for what he calls the wrong we have done them. Yet seems to forget that they have declared war on the US and all of our allies, Christians, Jews, just about everybody they don’t see eye to eye with. They have set out to change and or destroy every religion and country government they don’t agree with. These Muslims have been at war with most of the world since recorded history of there religion. We have all but given them a key to our country , other country’s have done the same and now have thing like Muslim killing British soldier in the middle of the street hacking him up. But who knows, maybe Obama just wants peace on earth. right.
