Western Journalist Embedded with ISIS Says He Saw Americans with Group

A very interesting story about American and Western people joining groups like ISIS.

Apparently the German reporter below, is willing to walk on the wild side and is unconcerned about his head being removed from his body as fellow journalists before him.


Breitbart’s National Security

December 27 2014

The first Western reporter to be embedded with the Islamic State (IS, ISIS, ISIL) told ABC News that he came into contact with more than 14 American fighters during the 10 days he spent with the jihadist group.

According to German journalist Jürgen Todenhöfer, the American fighters come from different backgrounds — “both American born and Arab-Americans as well as white,” reports ABC News.

“I have seen many wars. That’s the strongest group I ever met. Very strong, very clever, very enthusiastic. They are extremely brutal. Not just head-cutting. I’m talking about the strategy of religious cleansing.” He elaborated, “That’s their official philosophy. They are talking about 500 million people who have to die,” he told ABC News.

“The guy from New Jersey. This surprised me,” Todenhöfer said, adding:

You don’t expect someone from N.J. going to join the Islamic State. … They were very tough, well informed. Some of them very successful in their own countries. In Iraq 30 percent are foreign fighters; in Syria 70 percent.

They feel discriminated in their countries. They want to live in an Islamic state where no one can bother them and no one can discriminate against them. They are completely sure they will win this fight.

U.S. authorities have acknowledged that Americans have traveled overseas to join the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, raising concerns about homegrown terrorist attacks carried out by these individuals once they return to the United States.

FBI Director James Comey told Breitbart Texas in August:

While the organization currently operates in the Middle East, the group has foreign members who might be able to travel into Europe and possibly into America. That is why the FBI has been working to monitor any attempts of such travel as well as their efforts to recruit individuals in the United States.

A U.S.-led international coalition has been conducting constant airstrikes against ISIS in Iraq since August. President Obama expanded the U.S. war against ISIS into Syria the following month.

DIA: North Korea Planned Attacks on US Nuclear Plants

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

It’s time that the United States revisit the UN policy against targeted assassination for foreign dictators who want to kill us and our leaders.

As far as are leaders are concerned are there any worth shedding American blood and lives to protect?

Please name them if you can.

Have we forgotten the targeted assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy by our own the CIA?

Five commando units trained for strikes, sabotage

December 18, 2014

North Korea dispatched covert commando teams to the United States in the 1990s to attack nuclear power plants and major cities in a conflict, according to a declassified Defense Intelligence Agency report.

The DIA report, dated Sept. 13, 2004, reveals that five units of covert commandos were trained for the attacks inside the country.

According to the report, the “Reconnaissance Bureau, North Korea, had agents in place to attack American nuclear power plants.”

The document states that the North Korean Ministry of People’s Armed Forces, the ministry in charge of the military, “established five liaison offices in the early 1990s, to train and infiltrate operatives into the United States to attack nuclear power plants and major cities in case of hostilities.”

“One of the driving forces behind the establishment of the units and infiltration of operatives was the slow progress in developing a multi-stage ballistic missile.”

North Korea is known to have at least two long-range missiles capable of hitting the United States, the Taepodong-2 intercontinental ballistic missile, and the KN-08 road-mobile ICBM, which has not yet been flight tested.

The report indicates that power plants would be targeted for attack “in the event of hostilities between the United States and DPRK” – the acronym for the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea.

The Reconnaissance Bureau is part of the Ministry of People’s Armed Forces and is in charge of the estimated 60,000 North Korean special operations commandos.

The heavily redacted report is what is known as a raw intelligence report, consisting of information possibly provided to the United States by a defector or agent, or possibly obtained from electronic surveillance.

Reconnaissance Bureau commandos have undertaken terrorist operations in the past in South Korea and other locations.

But the DIA report is the first intelligence document indicating North Korea had planned attacks inside the United States and dispatched agents for the operations.

Disclosure of the report, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, comes amid threats by presumed North Korean agents to conduct September 11-style terrorist attacks against U.S. movie theaters.

The threats coincided with efforts by North Korea to prevent the showing Dec. 25 of the Sony Pictures film “The Interview,” a comedy involving a fictional plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The U.S. government determined that the massive hack targeting against Sony, which stole an estimated 100 terabytes of data including unreleased films, has been determined to be the work of North Korean hackers or those working for the regime of Kim Jong Un.

S.Y. Lee, a Department Homeland Security spokesman, declined to comment on the 2004 document.

Muslim Navy Engineer Caught Stealing U.S Aircraft Plans For Egyptian Government

crew-223Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

If the United States wasn’t stuck with a Muslim in the White House, this traitor would be sentenced to death once proven guilty.

Islamic Jihadists already in this country believe they can do anything to weaken America, knowing Obama has their backs.

Navy Times

December 6, 2014

(Navy Times) – A naturalized American citizen working for the Navy was arrested Friday for attempting to sell technical information about the nuclear aircraft carrier Gerald R. Ford to an agent of the Egyptian government.


The agent, however, was a federal undercover agent working for the FBI.

According to documents from the Justice Department, a federal grand jury on Dec. 3 indicted Mostafa Ahmed Awwad, 35, and charged him with two counts of attempting to export defense articles and technical data.

According to a redacted affidavit from federal agent James Blitzer, Awwad was born in 1979 in Saudi Arabia. He married a US citizen in May 2007 in Cairo, Egypt, and later became a US citizen.

At the time of his indictment, Awwad, of Yorktown, Virginia, was working as a civilian engineer in the nuclear engineering and planning department of the Norfolk Naval Shipyard, where he had been hired in February. He had been given a clearance of Secret.


The office provides engineering support for the Gerald R. Ford, under construction at Newport News Shipbuilding in nearby Newport News, Virginia.

The indictment and affidavit provide details of how, on Sept. 18, an FBI undercover agent speaking in Arabic contacted Awwad by phone and asked to meet the following day. Awwad subsequently agreed to copy and turn over diagrams and schematics of the carrier, many marked “NOFORN,” meaning no distribution to foreign citizens.

According to a Justice Department press release, during the Sept. 19 meeting “Awwad met with the undercover FBI agent, who was posing as an Egyptian intelligence officer, in a park in Hampton, Virginia.

Obama Praises Muslim Cleric Who Backed Fatwa on Killing of U.S. Soldiers

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Why wouldn’t Obama extol the virtues of a member of the Muslim Brotherhood?


He’s just keeping his word about “The winds of change,” and Islam.

We won’t be showing the video, the management decided as a safety precaution to keep those who might watch it from ending up with permanent keyboard imprints on their foreheads as they fell asleep and did a “Face plant.”

President Barack Obama favorably quoted and praised on Wednesday in his speech before the United Nations a controversial Muslim cleric whose organization has reportedly endorsed the terror group Hamas and supported a fatwa condoning the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq.


Obama in his remarks offered praise to controversial cleric Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah and referred to him as a moderate Muslim leader who can help combat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL or ISIS) radical ideology.

However, Bin Bayyah himself has long been engulfed in controversy for many of his views, including the reported backing of a 2004 fatwa that advocated violent resistance against Americans fighting in Iraq.

This is not the first time that the Obama administration has extolled Bin Bayyah, who also has served as the vice president of a Muslim scholars group founded by a radical Muslim Brotherhood leader who has called “for the death of Jews and Americans,” according to Fox News and other reports.

Recalled Report Raises Question of Politicization of Intelligence

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.
The loons on the left continually attack Michelle Bachmann. Why?
Because as a tax attorney and a conservative she holds their feet to the fire and drives them crazy. 
She is also a vocal member on The House Intelligence Committee.
Bachmann seeks answers from president, HHS on Obamacare security flaws.
Sadly for America, Representative Bachmann (R-MN) has announced she will not seek reelection in 2014.

A member of the House Intelligence Committee said Tuesday she is investigating whether an intelligence report warning about risks to Americans who posted data on the Obamacare website was suppressed for political reasons.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.) said she plans to write to President Barack Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius urging them to immediately shut down the Healthcare.gov website over concerns that the system is vulnerable to cyber attacks as a result of malicious software possibly inserted from Belarus, or as a result of other security holes.

The White House said Monday that an intelligence report warning of potential malicious software in the Affordable Care Act network was withdrawn from circulation by U.S. intelligence agencies shortly after it was issued.

However, White House National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said cyber security specialists had launched a precautionary review of the Obamacare software to determine if it contains any malware from Belarus, an anti-U.S. dictatorship and close ally of Russia.

Let’s cut to the chase, Iran and the rest of the world know that the only balls Obama has are golf balls.

He blew it sending John Kerry to negotiate with Tehran  on the negotiations.

Iran got more time and we got the finger from Iran.

The Washington Free Beacon

Iran and its terrorist proxy groups’ influence in Latin America remains a troubling security threat to the region and world, experts said at a congressional hearing on Tuesday.

Hezbollah, a Shiite terrorist group based in Lebanon and sponsored by Iran, has established illicit networks in Latin America in the last few decades to provide millions annually for its global operations, experts on the region told the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade.

Those networks involve money laundering, counterfeiting, piracy, and drug trafficking in cooperation with local criminal groups like the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC).

Celina Realuyo, assistant professor of national security affairs at the National Defense University, said the “convergence” of terror and crime networks in Latin America presents a significant threat to regional and global security.

“These types of illicit actors, terror providers, and criminals, a lot of them are offering and brokering services but may not espouse the ideological fervor that other groups have,” she said. “But they’re offering a lot of special services—a terror pipeline—where you see this very unholy alliance between terror groups and criminal groups who have a win-win.”

Push of a Button: This Is How Fast the Entire Banking System Can Be Locked Down


Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.
National Intelligence Director John Negroponte past a video screen at National Security Agency at Fort Meade
It’s not as though we don’t have our own hackers busting into enemy and ally security systems at will.
We also have NSA at our disposal to eaves drop on what the bad guys are doing.
The current hysteria around this situation could well be smoke and mirrors.
Are we to believe that the Good Guys don’t have counter hackers working for us?
Yes Target was breached.  It would seem that this is another article put up by team Obama to keep us from focusing on the real issues at hand.

The YouTube below, is in a way comical.  If not it sucks to be us.

The Memphis Sun


Dec 25, 2013 in

Late last week it was learned that some 40 million charge cards were obtained using physical processing systems located in Target retail locations nationwide. Though no details of the how the hack attack was executed have been released by Target, the FBI or other agencies investigating the breach, it is likely that the processing machines themselves were compromised.

Target claims that the hack was sophisticated, but on the technical side, once hackers found a way into the credit card processing machines, probably via remote entry from servers somewhere in Eastern Europe or Russia, the theft of credit card data itself would have been fairly straight forward by using scripts or applications that simply capture the data and send it off to servers owned by the hackers.

This was probably one of the largest credit card thefts in history, though it is not at all surprising. Two years ago we noted that cyber attacks would soon be targeting America’s e-commerce systems and just a few months ago it was noted that rogue terrorist groups were specifically working on sabotage operation to bring down the U.S. economy.

While this latest attack on Target stores and their customers fell far short of crashing our economy or financial system, it proves, as did recent breaches of Pentagon military networks, that even the most highly secured systems in the world can be compromised.

Furthermore, what this attack highlights is that with the right type of “event” the economy and financial system of the United States can be shut down… almost instantly.

If you are a JP Morgan Chase banking customer and happened to use your debit card at Target stores between November 27th and December 15th, then you got a first-hand taste of what a shutdown of the banking system might feel like and how fast in can happen.

It was done with the push of a button and impacted some two million holiday shoppers:

TSA to Charge $85 for Trusted Traveler Program


Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.
What will they think of next?  A frequent rug flyer program?
This makes as much sense as paying for a dog license, a drivers license, or a marriage license.


Here we go again, another shake down by our government, this time under the guise of the TSA. 
Trust that the Saudi’s will get their “Trusted Travelers” cards before any Americans.


Air travel could get a little easier for travelers approved through the TSA Pre application program.

The program will allow “pre-approved, low-risk travelers the opportunity to apply for expedited screening at participating U.S. airports,” according to the Transportation Security Administration.

Pre-checked passengers will be able to skip the regular TSA line and will not have to remove their shoes or their jackets. Additionally, they will no longer have to take out their laptops every time they go through security.

U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and lawful permanent residents who have not been convicted of certain crimes can apply to the TSA Pre program for $85. Those approved will then receive a Known Traveler Number, which will be valid for five years. The information will be embedded in their boarding passes.

The TSA Pre program will begin accepting applications Wednesday.
