Kansas: Muslim Pleads Guilty in Plot to Explode Car Bomb at Fort Riley

Aka, Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, although the DOJ and most media outlets conveniently omit that detail.

Booker told the FBI informant he “joined the United States Army” and “was going to go in there and kill the American soldier…”

John T. Booker Jr., 21, of Topeka, Kansas, pleaded guilty today to attempting to detonate a vehicle bomb on the Fort Riley military base in Manhattan, Kansas.

Booker pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Carlos Murguia of the District of Kansas to one count of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction and one count of attempted destruction of government property by fire or explosion.  Sentencing will be scheduled at a later date.  The parties have stipulated to a sentence of 30 years in federal prison.

In his guilty plea, Booker admitted he intended to kill American soldiers and to assist ISIL’s fight against the United States.  His plan called for constructing a bomb containing 1,000 pounds of ammonium nitrate.  Booker intended to trigger the bomb himself and die in the process, and filmed a video he intended Americans to see after his death.

“You sit in your homes and think this war is just over in Iraq,” he said in the video.  “Today we will bring the Islamic State straight to your doorstep.”

Unbeknownst to Booker, the bomb that he constructed was made with inert materials, and the two men working with him were undercover informants for the FBI.

The FBI began investigating Booker in March 2014 after he posted on his Facebook page that he wanted to commit jihad.  Booker admitted that he tried to enlist in the U.S. Army in order to commit an insider attack against American soldiers like the one at Fort Hood in Texas, but his deadly plans were thwarted when he was denied entry into the Army.  In October 2014, Booker began communicating with an undercover FBI informant.  He told the undercover FBI informant that he dreamed of being a fighter in the Middle East, and proposed capturing and killing an American soldier.

In March 2015, Booker was introduced to another FBI informant who he believed would help him plan an attack.  Booker said he wanted to detonate a suicide bomb because he couldn’t be captured, all the evidence would be destroyed, and he would be guaranteed to hit his target.  On March 10, 2015, Booker made a video filmed at Freedom Park near Marshall Army Airfield at Fort Riley in which he pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, the leader of ISIL.  That month, he rented a storage unit in Topeka where the bomb would be assembled.

On April 10, 2015, Booker and the informants drove to an area near Fort Riley that Booker believed to be a little-used utility gate where they could enter Fort Riley undetected.  He was arrested when he made the final connections on the device that he believed would arm the bomb.

 

South Carolina: Syrian Muslim teen who plotted jihad on U.S. military base denied parole

“That’s one of the scariest individuals we’ve ever encountered. He’s a terrorist,” ~ York police chief

Carolina may have lost the Superbowl but they are champs when it comes to being home base for Muslim terrorists (see Creeping Sharia posts on South Carolina and North Carolina).

Also note yet another case of a Muslim who plotted jihad but was not charged with any terror-related crimes. Why? In this case because the feds – Obama or Loretta Lynch – have chosen not to charge the Syrian Muslim. Hush hush sheeple.

via SC teen suspected of wanting to join ISIS denied parole

YORK COUNTY, SC (WBTV) – A South Carolina teenager who police say plotted to join ISIS and attack U.S. troops was denied parole by the Board of Juvenile Parole this week.

The teenager, who was 16 at the time of his arrest, pleaded guilty to a gun charge in 2015. He was sent to the Department of Juvenile Justice in Columbia.

He had a parole hearing on Monday. Results of the hearing weren’t made public until noon Wednesday.

The director said the board decided not to grant parole to the teen after the hearing.

York police officers involved in the investigation attended the hearing and urged the board not to release the teenager.

“We just told them that he was a true and legitimate threat to the safety of Americans,” said York Chief of Police Andy Robinson.

The teenager, whose name is not being released because of his age, lived in York County but his family is originally from Syria.

At the time of his sentencing, York County Solicitor Kevin Brackett said the teen was communicating with another person in North Carolina through social media and text messages.

York Police initially went to the teen’s home in February 2015 after getting reports that he had a pistol, which is illegal for a minor in South Carolina. When they executed a search warrant, they found the firearm, ammunition and a rifle.

The teen initially told investigators that he had the gun to protect his family since his father’s passing. He later admitted that the story was made up.

Brackett said the teen told investigators that he and the person from North Carolina were planning to rob a gun store in NC and steal guns and ammunition. The pair then planned to attack a military installation in retaliation for military air strikes on ISIS.

They then planned to leave for Syria, where the teen has been several times, to join the organization.

During the search of the teen’s home, investigators said they found an ISIS flag in his bedroom.

Authorities said the investigation shows he was involved in “some radical Islamic activities” and associated with people in “radical Islamic groups.”

“We take that very seriously,” Chief Robinson said. “He had the means, the ability to carry out his plan, and it definitely concerned us that he may be coming back to our community.”

The teenager pleaded guilty in family court to possession of a pistol by a minor, which is the only law that he broke in South Carolina.

There’s no state terrorism statute, the conspiracy, anything to do with that would have had to be federal,” said Robinson.

The chief said his officers remain in contact with the FBI, but was unsure about any investigation at the federal level.

The teenager’s court-appointed counsel at the hearing said the now 17-year-old has been making strides.

“In this case, this young man has done very well. He has not been a disciplinary problem,” said Tom Elliott Jr from Columbia.

Elliott made it clear that he was not second guessing the board’s decision, but believed the presence of law enforcement officers influenced the outcome.

“I believe that that was a concern of board members, in my opinion, that they didn’t see that often, and wanted to take that into account,” Elliott said.

The teen’s lawyer said he could remain at DJJ until he turns 21, or until he’s granted parole by the board.

He is scheduled for another hearing in three months.

The now 17-year-old was arrested after York police and federal agents found two guns in his home, along with ISIS flags. They believed he was recruiting for the terrorist group.

During the investigation, the FBI said it connected the teen to a plot to kill military personnel on a North Carolina base.  Agents believe he planned to then travel to Syria and join ISIS.

The guns police said were found in the 16-year-old’s rooms were a loaded .25-caliber pistol in his night stand and an unloaded .22-caliber rifle. The teen was charged with possession of a weapon, but nothing related to terrorism because South Carolina does not have a state terrorism charge.  On the federal level, the government does not charge minors with terrorism, leaving the gun charge as the only case police could make against the teen.

On Monday, York Police Chief Andy Robinson testified before the juvenile parole board, urging them to keep the teen locked up.

“That’s one of the scariest individuals we’ve ever encountered. He’s a terrorist,” Robinson said.  “If this can happen in York, South Carolina, it can happen anywhere.”

Parole board members did not ask the teen any questions about terrorism or ISIS. They focused on the guns, which the teen said he paid $200 each for, using money he’d saved up from a job working at a restaurant.

Federal agents said they linked the teen to a man in the Raleigh area through social media who helped plan the military base attack. There was no word about whether that man has been arrested, though the investigation is still ongoing.

York police Lt. Rich Caddell said the teen told him he was serious about killing Americans and wouldn’t be stopped by police or anyone else.

Robinson said it was a real threat.

“I am 100 percent convinced that if we had not intervened when we did, this plan would have been carried out,” he said.

…the teen could be back before the board again by summer.  At that time, he will have served the maximum sentence for the gun charge.

Obama grants clemency to 7 Iranian criminals in U.S., drops charges on 14 more

‘Hardly a Fair Swap’ with Iran

“…you’re talking about exchanging hostages taken by Iran and Americans in exchange for criminals and potential terrorists


Obama sent reinforcements to al Qaeda and the Taliban this week. He just did the same for the Iranian regime who scored multiple propaganda victories against the Great Satan this week including capturing and humiliating U.S. Navy seamen, forcing one to wear a hijab.

One wonders is the U.S. military is too decimated or too scared to even consider a military coup to overthrow the rogue dictator now openly defying and putting American civilians and soldiers at risk while protecting Muslims worldwide. Jarret, Brennan and Kerry all have Iranian connections the media doesn’t tell you about.

Source: Obama grants clemency to seven in Iran deal – POLITICO

As part of a prisoner swap with Iran, President Barack Obama granted clemency to seven men of Iranian origin either facing criminal charges in U.S. courts or already serving time in U.S. prison, an American official confirmed Saturday.

The deal led to the release of four Americans being held in Iran: Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian as well as Amir Hekmati, Saeed Abedini and Nosratollah Khosravi-Roodsari, the official said. In a move that was not part of the prisoner deal, the Iranians have also released a fifth American in their custody, student Matthew Trevithick.

While an official confirmed Obama issued seven grants of clemency in the deal with the Iranians, spokespeople at the Justice Department and the White House did not immediately release the names of those spared in the U.S. legal system.

However, Iran’s Fars news agency released seven names, which correspond with U.S. court records on pending or recent cases.

Obama appeared to have granted rare, pre-trial pardons to three men awaiting trial in Houston for violating U.S. export laws by shipping high-tech equipment to Iran: Bahram Mechanic and Tooraj Faridi of Houston and Khosrow Afghahi of Los Angeles.

On Saturday, prosecutors moved to drop charges against Matin Sadeghi, a fugitive in the same case who was being sought in a wanted poster available on the FBI website. A court filing said the move was undertaken “based on significant foreign policy interests of the United States.” Until Saturday, Obama had never granted a pre-trial pardon to anyone, nor had his predecessor, President George W. Bush.

“It’s really unusual,” said former Justice Department pardon attorney Margaret Love, noting that President George H. W. Bush did some in the Iran-Contra probe and President Bill Clinton did as well. President Gerald Ford famously issued an unconditional pardon not only pre-trial, but without any charges having been filed, for former President Richard Nixon in the Watergate affair.

One reason to grant a pardon, rather than simply dismiss charges, is that the pardon provides an assurance that the charges will never be refiled. It’s possible the Iranians insisted on such certainty.

“That’s the reason you would do a full pardon,” Love said. “If the charges are dropped, you can be recharged.”

Three people already serving prison time appeared to have had their sentences cut short through the president’s commutation power Saturday: Arash Ghahreman of New York, serving a six-and-a-half-year sentence for planning to send fiber optic gyroscopes and electron tube to Iran and due for release in 2020; Nader Modanlo of Potomac, Md., serving an eight-year sentence for providing satellite services to Iran and due for release in 2021 and Ali Saboonchi of Parkville, Md., serving a two-year sentence for providing high-tech industrial parts to Iran and due for release in November of this year.

Prosecutors in San Diego also moved Saturday to dismiss charges against another individual charged in the same case as Ghahreman, Koorush Taherkhani, as well as a company, TIG Marine Engineering Services. Prosecutors called Taherkhani and the company “fugitives.”

“The United States’ makes this motion in the interest of justice based on issues regarding securing the extradition of the defendants, as well as significant foreign policy interests,” the motion said.

POLITICO also located three cases involving fugitive defendants in federal court in Washington which were dropped Saturday. All involved alleged export control or sanctions violations regarding goods headed for Iran. Mohammed Sharbaf was accused of shipping lift truck parts, Amin Ravan of shipping antennas and Mohammad Mohammadi of sending aircraft parts.

A U.S. official confirmed charges were dropped in cases involving 14 individuals. The moves will allow those individuals to travel more freely outside Iran.

“The United States also removed any Interpol red notices and dismissed any charges against 14 Iranians for whom it was assessed that extradition requests were unlikely to be successful,” the official said.

A hacker who admitted to breaking into the computers of a Vermont-based engineering firm also was on the list of those winning clemency from Obama in the Iran deal. Nima Golestaneh was extradited from Turkey to the United States in February to face the charges in federal court in Burlington, Vt.

Just last month, Golestaneh pled guilty to wire fraud and unauthorized access to computers. He was awaiting sentencing next month. Now, that sentencing will apparently not take place, but as of mid-afternoon Saturday there was no indication in the court’s docket of any action by Obama or the Justice Department.

Obama has used his clemency powers before to advance international negotiations. In 2014, he granted commutations to three individuals—including a convicted murderer—as part of a rapprochement with Cuba that also led to the release of an American held there for years, Alan Gross, as well as another unidentified person in Cuban custody.

And in 2010, the U.S. and Russia brokered a prisoner swap that led to 10 people charged with acting as agents for Russia being given unusually short sentences of “time served.” They were immediately flown to Vienna and exchanged for four people being held in Russian jails.


It should also be noted that Ex-CIA contractor not in Iran prisoner release.

Pentagon Sends Obama Plan to Close Gitmo, Move Jihadis to US Soil

Source: Pentagon Sends Obama Plan to Close Guantanamo, Move Detainees to US – Defense One

Hours after 10 percent of the remaining detainees leave Cuba, the defense secretary said he’s handed the president a plan for “Gitmo North.”

Defense Secretary Ash Carter has at last sent President Barack Obama a plan to close the U.S. military detention center in Cuba and move remaining detainees to a U.S. alternative.

“Not everyone in GTMO can be safely transferred to another country, so we need an alternative,” Carter said Thursday in Miami. “I have therefore framed for the president a proposal to establish an alternative location. That plan will propose bringing those detainees to an appropriate, secure location in the United States.”

Carter’s plan presents a list of potential options for where on U.S. soil the Pentagon would put the “worst of the worst” Guantanamo detainees, but does not recommend a specific site.

A senior administration official said on condition of anonymity that the president’s national security team is in the “final stages of reviewing the proposal,” submitted by the Pentagon this month. “No specific site is selected for potential detention in the United States,” the official said.

Hours before Carter spoke, the Pentagon transferred 10 Yemeni detainees to Oman, trimming the population of Guantanamo by about 10 percent. Now 93 detainees remain, the first time the total has been under 100 since 2002, shortly after the prison opened. Three more remain to be transferred to fulfill the Obama administration’s announcement that 17 would leave in early 2016.

Administration officials believe that cutting Guantanamo’s population to under 100 individuals would mollify lawmakers who have blocked any transfers to U.S. soil.

But opponents have made clear they’ll continue their opposition. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., said in a Wednesday statement in response to reports of the latest transfer: “Any Obama administration decision to transfer a large number of Yemeni detainees from Guantanamo to Oman would represent a thinly veiled attempt to undercut the will of Congress and would further endanger the American people.”

The Obama administration has been working on the closure plan since last year, but the Pentagon has repeatedly delayed its delivery to Congress; first, to allow the Defense Department to survey potential sites, and again when the plan was determined to be too costly, undermining the White House’s argument that closing Guantanamo would save money.

Carter spoke Thursday at the change of command ceremony for U.S. Southern Command, where retiring Gen. John Kelly has overseen Guantanamo for three years. At the Pentagon last week, Kelly told Defense One, “Bombing the living shit out of ISIS in Iraq and Afghanistan, Syria, that would maybe irritate them more than the fact we have Guantanamo open.” For terrorist groups and rights activists alike, he said, “What tends to bother them is the fact that we’re holding them there indefinitely without trial … it’s not the point that it’s Gitmo. If we send them, say, to a facility in the U.S., we’re still holding them without trial.”

In his final State of the Union, Obama vowed to keep pushing to close Guantanamo: “It’s expensive, it’s unnecessary, and it only serves as a recruitment brochure for our enemies.”

But when asked before the address if Congress would prevent the president from shuttering the detention center, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said, “I sure hope so … it’s the perfect place for terrorists.”


More on Obama’s repatriation of jihadists: Guantánamo Detainee Freed Monday Said He Would ‘Kill Americans’ if Released

With the Monday announcement, Al-Shamrani became the fourth Guantánamo detainee released in 2016. U.S. officials determined him to be a “high risk” for recidivism, warning he would likely re-engage against the West should he be released from the detention facility. He also allegedly told guards at the facility that he would “kill Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan if released,” according to his leaked confidential file.

On January 6th, Al Qaeda-linked detainees Mahmud Umar Muhammad Bin Atef and Khalif Muhammad Salih Al-Dhuby were released from the Guantánamo Bay detention center. On January 8, Faez Ahmed Al-Kandari, another Al Qaeda-linked detainee who was suspected of working as a jihadi recruiter and expert propagandist, was released.

The four men are part of a group of 13 more detainees that that the administration will likely be released by the end of this month, according to reports.

According to leaked military documents, Al-Shimrani is an Al Qaeda recruiter who may have served as one of Osama bin Laden’s personal bodyguards. He was deemed to pose a “high risk” against the United States.

“If released without rehabilitation, close supervision, and means to successfully reintegrate into his society as a law-abiding citizen, it is assessed detainee would immediately seek out prior associates and reengage in hostilities and extremist support activities at home and abroad,” said part of his file.


If Gitmo is a recruitment brochure imagine what Gitmo North on the U.S. mainland will be – particularly for the millions of Muslim settlers living in the U.S.

Idaho: Muslim Refugee Gets 25 Years for July 4th Boise Terror Plot

Source: Idaho terrorist sentenced to 25 years in prison

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An Uzbek refugee authorities say had an unwavering commitment to kill personnel at a military base or civilians at crowded Fourth of July celebrations in downtown Boise, Idaho, has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Fazliddin Kurbanov received the sentence Thursday and a $250,000 fine.

A federal jury in August convicted Kurbanov of conspiracy, attempting to support a terrorist organization and possession of bomb-making components.

Prosecutors say the 33-year-old Russian-speaking truck driver who fled Uzbekistan in 2009 downloaded jihadist and martyrdom videos from a terrorist website.

Authorities monitored his communications and arrested him in 2013

Kurbanov maintained his innocence and told the court he wasn’t a terrorist.

But U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge in handing down the sentence said Kurbanov planned to commit jihad against the United States.


From previous posts, Kurbanov said:

“We are the closest ones to infidels. We have almost everything. What would you say if, with the help of God, we implement a martyrdom act?… There are military installations right here, targets, and vehicles are available as well.’”

According to an Associated Press report from 2013, Kurbanov taught unidentified people, likely fellow Muslims, how to build a bomb:

In count two, the indictment alleges Kurbanov provided material support to terrorists, knowing that the help was to be used in preparation for a plot involving the use of a weapon of mass destruction.

The indictment also alleges that on Nov. 15, 2012, Kurbanov possessed an explosive device, consisting of a series of parts intended to be converted into a bomb. Those parts included a hollow hand grenade, a hobby fuse, aluminum powder, potassium nitrate and sulfur.

Meanwhile, in Utah, federal investigators said that for a 10-day period in January 2013, Kurbanov taught and demonstrated how to make an “explosive, destructive device, and weapon of mass destruction.”

And…

Uzbeks began coming to Idaho’s two refugee settlement centers, in Boise and Twin Falls, in 2003, Reeves said. The centers connect refugees with services such as language classes and help finding work.

About 90 percent of Uzbeks in their home country are Muslim.

Last year, an Uzbek named Ulugbek Kodirov was sentenced to at least 15 years in prison in Alabama for plotting to shoot President Barack Obama. Kodirov pleaded guilty, saying he was acting for the IMU.

Two other Uzbek nationals were arrested in 2012, one in Colorado and another in Pennsylvania, on what the FBI said were related terrorism charges.

Federal prosecutors in New York unveiled new criminal charges on Wednesday against a U.S. citizen believed to have once been an al Qaeda operative, accusing him of involvement in a 2009 car bomb attack on a U.S. military base in Afghanistan.

According to a nine-count indictment, Muhanad Mahmoud Al Farekh, 30, helped prepare one of two explosive devices for use in the Jan. 19, 2009 attack.

Prosecutors said an accomplice detonated one device, while Al Farekh’s fingerprints were found on packing tape for the second device, which a second accomplice carried and did not detonate. The military base was not identified.

Sean Maher, a court-appointed lawyer for Al Farekh, did not immediately respond to request for comment.

The Texas-born Al Farekh was charged with providing material support to al Qaeda, providing material support to terrorists and using explosives. He also faces six conspiracy counts including to murder Americans, use a weapon of mass destruction, bomb a government facility and aid al Qaeda.

Al Farekh faces up to life in prison if convicted. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday before U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan in Brooklyn, New York.

Also known as Abdullah al-Shami, Al Farekh had been detained in Pakistan prior to being flown to Brooklyn, where he first appeared last April 2.

He pleaded not guilty on June 4 to three criminal counts in an indictment made public a week earlier.

Prosecutors accused Al Farekh of providing material support to al Qaeda from Dec. 2006 to Sept. 2009, in a plot that involved two fellow students from the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada.

The case is U.S. v. Al Farekh, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of New York, No. 15-cr-00268.

Toy F-16 Airplane Blares Out Islamic Prayers (Video)

Source: Toy F-16 Blares Out Islamic Prayers Targeting Our Children

In what appears to be a subtle but disturbing trend, children are being targeted by Islamic supremacists in a most diabolical way. Islamic messages and prayers are implanted in beloved toys. This year for Christmas, no less — Christmas – toy F-16’s were fitted out with Islamic prayers instead of jet noises.

The Seattle Times reported Tuesday that “when a Bellingham child opened a Christmas gift, something was ‘very, very wrong’ with the sound the F-16 made, KING-TV reported.” Instead of jet noises, it loudly played an Islamic prayer. “The toy’s manufacturer, WolVol, blamed its factory for the mistake,” said the Times. The plane played prayers that Muslims chant while they are on the pilgrimage to Mecca.

So who replaced the jet noises in this toy plane with this prayer? If WolVol is telling the truth that this was the factory’s fault, where is their factory? Saudi Arabia? Who is working at that factory, and what is going on there, for something like this to happen?

Could this whole incident be any creepier? Imagine if Christian prayers had been discovered to have been surreptitiously inserted in Muslim toys for Ramadan. There would be a full-blown international investigation into this “Islamophobic” incident, with Interpol, MI5, the CIA, and the FBI working in double shifts to find the “right-wing Christian extremist cell” working in the toy factory.

The Bellingham, Washington child’s toy was not a one-off. Amazon’s product page for this toy plane is full of comments from people who also got the Islamic chant: “Not as advertised. Does not play jet noises. Plays an Arabic chant that is extremely bizarre for a child’s toy.” That’s an understatement. Another buyer wrote: “Very loud Middle Eastern chanting and music! It’s weird and scary! This is a very un-American product! I was expecting jet noises, NOT this! The toy is dirty as well. I’m sending it back if I can find the box!”

Some laid on the sarcasm thick: “I have been wanting to convert my 3 year old son to Islam for a long time and haven’t been able to motivate him to do so. This toy is great it lights up, has a prayer from the Qur’an in Arabic and fun for the whole family! The quality is good for a toy made in plastic and color is great. Thanks for reading and allahu akbar!” The best comment was this one: “It plays a recording of Islamic verses. I am surprised it does not come with a replica of the Twin Towers.”

Many of the commenters at Amazon also complained that the Islamic chanting was extremely loud, and that the toy came with no way to turn it down. It seems as if whoever did this wanted to make sure that no one failed to notice their handiwork.

It’s no accident that this would happen with a toy F-16 – after all, the F-16 is a famous American fighter jet. Someone in the company, most likely a Muslim, was against American “militarism” and clearly thought it would be funny, or make a political point, or both, to include this loud Islamic prayer. This could be a warning from Islamic jihadists, who like to boast that their prayers and piety will bring them a victory from Allah over American F-16s and other weaponry. Or it could be a leftist who thinks US airstrikes are wrong and wants to make the point that the “oppressed” will prevail. Either way, the police and the feds should investigate inside this toy company; hijacking and Islamizing toys may not be all they’re up to.

Whatever is happening with the F-16, this has happened with toys before. In 2008, Mattel produced a doll that said, “Islam is the light.” A Nintendo game in 2009 sounded exactly the same words. Clearly, someone is targeting our nation’s children with this subtle form of dawah.
