Congressman Jason Chaffetz broke this stunning news Wednesday that four known terrorists were apprehended at the US border in Texas on September 10 – the day before the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Chaffetz questioned Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on whether he is “aware of any apprehensions of suspected or known terrorists.”
Johnson dodged the question.

Rep. Chaffetz told Megyn Kelly there were four terrorists arrested crossing the US border in Texas on September 10.

There were actually four individuals trying to cross through the Texas border, who were apprehended at two different stations, that do have ties to known terrorist organizations in…

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

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 extoled 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.

The State Department’s Counterterrorism Bureau (CT) was forced to issue multiple apologies earlier this year after the Washington Free Beacon reported on its promotion of Bin Bayyah on Twitter.

“This should not have been tweeted and has since been deleted,” the CT Bureau tweeted at the time after many expressed anger over the original endorsement of Bin Bayyah.

However, it appears that Obama and the White House are still supportive of Bin Bayyah, who, despite his past statements, is still hailed by some as a moderate alternative to ISIL and al Qaeda.

“The ideology of ISIL or al Qaeda or Boko Haram will wilt and die if it is consistently exposed, confronted, and refuted in the light of day,” Obama said before the U.N., according to a White House transcript of his remarks.

“Look at the new Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies—Sheikh bin Bayyah described its purpose: ‘We must declare war on war, so the outcome will be peace upon peace,’” Obama said, quoting the controversial cleric.

Concern over the administration’s relationship with Bin Bayyah started as early as 2013, whenoutrage ensued after he was reported to have met with Obama’s National Security Council staff at the White House.

While Bin Bayyah has condemned the actions of groups such as Boko Haram and ISIL, he also has taken controversial positions against Israel.

He issued in 2009 a fatwa “barring ‘all forms of normalization’ with Israel,” according to a Fox report on the White House meeting.

Additionally, the notorious 2004 fatwa permitting armed resistance against U.S. military personnel in Iraq reportedly stated that “resisting occupation troops” is a “duty” for all Muslims, according to reports about the edict.

Patrick Poole, a reporter and terrorism analyst who has long tracked Bin Bayyah, expressed shock that the Obama administration would endorse the cleric on the world stage.

“It is simply amazing that just a few months ago the State Department had to publicly apologize for tweeting out it’s support for Bin Bayyah, only to have Barack Obama go before the leaders of the entire world and publicly endorse Bin Bayyah’s efforts,” Poole said.

“It seems that nothing can stop this administration’s determination to rehabilitate Bin Bayyah’s image, transforming him from the Islamic cleric who issued the fatwa to kill Americans in Iraq and calling for the death of Jews to the de facto White House Islamic mufti,” he said.

This type of mentality has contributed to the administration’s foreign policy failures in the region,” Poole said.

“This is a snapshot of why this administration’s foreign policy in the Middle East is a complete catastrophe,” he said. “The keystone of their policy has been that so-called ‘moderate Islamists’ were going to be the great counter to al Qaeda. But if you take less than 30 seconds to do a Google search on any of these ‘moderate Islamists,’ you immediately find they are just a degree or two from the most hardcore jihadis and have little to no difference when it comes to condoning violence.”

A White House official said that the president’s remarks speak for themselves and declined to add anything further.

The anatomy of ISIS: How the ‘Islamic State’ is run, from oil to beheadings

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • New research reveals ISIS government structure in parts of Syria and Iraq
  • Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, a former U.S. inmate in Iraq, is leader of so-called “Islamic State”
  • TRAC research shows ISIS’ evolution from military force to basic services provider
  • Many ISIS officials, including key deputies, are Saddam Hussein-era military officers

(CNN) — Put yourself in the shoes (and sixth-century black robes) of ISIS’ Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the mysterious boss of the terror group that is striking fear into the hearts of leaders around the world.

In the past couple of years you’ve managed to avoid drone attacks and survive civil wars, unify militant groups in two different countries under your banner, raise an army of jihadis from across the globe, and seize a chunk of land stretching from northern Syria to central Iraq.

Your newly-declared “Islamic State” is the size of Pennsylvania, so how do you govern it? You compartmentalize.

New data from the Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium(TRAC) has revealed that ISIS is putting governing structures in place to rule the territories the group conquers once the dust settles on the battlefield.

The research shows how ISIS has gone from being a purely military force to building a system that can provide basic services, such as making sure that gas and food are available, to its new citizens.

From the cabinet and the governors to the financial and legislative bodies, ISIS’ bureaucratic hierarchy looks a lot like those of some of the Western countries whose values it rejects — if you take away the democracy and add in a council to consider who should be beheaded.

ISIS leader: ‘See you guys in New York’

Baghdadi, his Cabinet advisers and his two key deputies comprise the executive branch of the government, known as “Al Imara.”

The two deputies — Abu Ali al-Anbari and Abu Muslim al-Turkmani, veteran Iraqi military officials who served under Saddam Hussein — oversee Syria and Iraq, respectively.

ISIS has probably split the governance of the “Islamic State” into Syrian and Iraqi branches simply to make it easier to run, according to Jasmine Opperman, TRAC’s Southern Africa Director.

“They see the caliphate as one state, yet there are two different governments,” Opperman told CNN. “I believe this split is purely administrative at this time. They don’t want to be seen as downplaying the caliphate, but to make it easier to govern they were forced to make a separation between Syria and Iraq.”

The two deputies deliver orders to the governors in charge of the various sub-states in Syria and Iraq under ISIS control, who then instruct local councils on how to implement the executive branch’s decrees on everything from media relations and recruiting to policing and financial matters.

The Shura council — which reports directly to the executive branch — is the caliphate’s religious monitor, appointed to make sure that all the local councils and governors are sticking to ISIS’ version of Islamic law.

The recent murders of Western hostages James Foley, Steven Sotloff, and David Haines would have fallen under the Shura council’s purview, according to Opperman.

“Let’s say a significant execution is going to take place, something that will get ISIS on the front page of the newspaper,” Opperman said. “It cannot be done without Shura council approval.”

The Shura council also has the power to censure the leadership for running afoul of its interpretation of Sharia law, according to Opperman.

“The Shura council has the right to tell Baghdadi to go if he’s not adhering to ISIS’ religious standards,” she told CNN. “It would most probably never happen, but the fact that it’s possible indicates the council’s prominence.”

Baghdadi — who was once imprisoned by U.S. forces in Iraq –seems to have incorporated the American military’s own counter-insurgency mantra of “Clear and Hold” to win territory, establish control over the area, then get the locals to help govern it.

As time goes on, ISIS is evolving into a government whose political decision-making cannot be separated from its military capabilities, according to Opperman.

“It’s two sides of the same coin,” she said. “We’ve seen the military side, with the war cabinet that directs brigades. But now on the other side we’re seeing how ISIS wants to govern. The two processes inform one another.”

Investigative journalist and radio host: The three imperative questions NOT being asked about Benghazi

Featured Book

Title: The REAL Benghazi Story: What the White House and Hillary Don’t Want You to Know

Author: Aaron Klein

Purchase this book

New York Times bestselling author, investigative journalist and radio host Aaron Klein has a new book out titled “The REAL Benghazi Story: What the White House and Hillary Don’t Want You to Know,” in which Klein does yeoman’s work in combing through the thousands of pages of available government documents to chronicle the numerous breathtaking but oft-underreported facts on Benghazi, identify the various inconsistencies between and among the testimony of the various parties involved, and ask the questions begging to be answered.

Klein in fact devotes a whole section of his book to a comprehensive set of suggested questions he believes must be pursued by the Benghazi Special Investigative Committee led by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC). In an extensive interview with Klein, we had the opportunity to ask him what three questions in particular heretofore NOT being asked must be asked. Klein asserted:

One: Why did we hire the February 17th [Martyrs Brigade] militia [to defend the Benghazi special mission compound]? Number two…were there any weapons transfers through this facility? And were the weapons transfers involved in any way, shape, or form, in the attack in the first place…Third: Why were no special forces sent? What were they [our forces] really doing on the night of the attacks on a “training mission,” in Croatia.”

On this third question, Klein elaborated:

There’s something called the C110…forty man special training force. They’re supposed to be maintained to respond to diplomatic emergencies…The anniversary of the 9/11 attacks you would think is the one night…in the entire calendar…that everybody knows jihadists are most motivated to attack. So why would you take the main force to respond to all such emergencies in Africa, and put them, that very night, on a so-called training mission in Croatia.

And I ask…there was a weapons shipment — hundreds of tons by the way — that was going through Croatia at that exact time…You would think if the United States is shipping these weapons, somebody has to protect them…So, was that special force protecting the weapons the night of the attack?

To Klein’s point, the New York Times has reported on significant weapons shipment efforts — to Syrian “rebels” by way of other Arab governments — running through Croatia all throughout 2012. In a March 2013 article titled “Arms Airlift to Syria Rebels Expands, With Aid From C.I.A.,” the Times notes:

From offices at secret locations, American intelligence officers have helped the Arab governments [based on military cargo flight records, including Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Qatar] shop for weapons, including a large procurement from Croatia, and have vetted rebel commanders and groups [in Syria] to determine who should receive the weapons as they arrive, according to American officials speaking on the condition of anonymity. The C.I.A. declined to comment on the shipments or its role in them.

This portion of our interview, which continues with Klein going into further detail on the role of theFebruary 17th Martyrs Brigade, begins at 21:11 below.

During the extensive interview with Klein, we also had a chance to discuss a number of other issues including:

  • Why Klein believes that, echoing past Blaze Books guest Ken Timmerman, Benghazi represents “Iran contra times infinity” and “the Fast ‘N Furious of the Middle East”
  • What America was doing in Benghazi in the first place
  • “Moderate” vs. “Extremist” groups in the Middle East, and how America effectively created “an Al Qaeda army” through our efforts related to Libya and Syria
  • How and why the State Department created such an unsafe situation in Benghazi, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s direct link to such security lapses, especially with respect to the so-called “colocation” waiver
  • The serious issues as to the veracity of the narrative regarding what happened to Ambassador Christopher Stevens on the night of Sept. 11, 2012
  • Klein’s take on the first day of Benghazi hearings
  • The broader significance of Benghazi in context of America’s foreign policy in the Middle East

DOJ coordinating with Media Matters? Anyone else see a problem with this?

Department Of Justice, Media Matters Coordinate To Attack Reporter

http://cdn01.dailycaller.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/454622860-e1410320314341.jpg” alt=”U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder provides an update on the Justice DepartmentÕs efforts in Ferguson, Missouri, during a news conference with Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division Molly Moran and Office of Community Oriented Policing Services Director
Ronald Davis at the department” width=”610″ />  

Since when does the Department of Justice coordinate with an obviously liberal media organization to go after a conservative reporter? It’s official: At least since 2011.

In email exchanges obtained by The Daily Caller in two separate FOIA requests, a coordinated effort to slam Breitbart News reporter Matthew Boyleemerged. To be sure, Boyle is not a reporter who is beloved by other reporters and he’s been critiqued on any number of matters that include his youthful chipmunk cheeks, his previously questionable Twitter avatar and his TV skills. But his beat was DOJ and Eric Holder and shouldn’t a reporter be commended for going after an enterprising story or two on his beat?

Even Slate‘s Dave Weigel agreed with that sentiment. “I see Media Matters giving Holder a huzzah for calling the Caller out,” he wrote in November 2011. “But calling it out for what? Are news organizations not allowed to enterprise stories by asking people whether they think someone should resign? News organizations do this all the time. The Caller’s ‘sin’ seems to be doing it with no back-up from the rest of the press.”

And yet, all this media scheming from the Department of Justice.

As revealed in the FOIA docs, Media Matters Deputy Research Director Matt Gertz sent a post concerning the NRA’s growing contributions to Holder’s critics to DOJ spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler, Holder’s top press flack who resigned in March, 2013. She replied, “Thanks, you know boyle has been doing robo calls to top members right? This is campaign mounted by daily caller. He has called 60 offices and gotten to 8 last week.” Gertz replied, “Yeah, that was what my original piece on the story was about.”

At the time of the exchange, Boyle worked for The Daily Caller. 

Years later in February, 2013, Boyle wrote a story for Breitbart News about Schmaler’s “colluding” with “far left wing” Media Matters to attack him, lawmakers and other members of the media. Funny enough, Boyle attempted to seek comment from Schmaler on why she resigned. He wrote, “Schmaler has not answered when asked by Breitbart News whether her resignation has anything to do with the coming hearings on DOJ collusion with groups like Media Matters.”

Weirdly, it takes two years (or longer) for DOJ to respond to FOIA requests.

Further perplexing: TheDC FOIA’d the Justice Department for all mentions of Matthew Boyle in agency communications. The specific request was ”All records relating to and about Matthew Boyle.” Carmen Mallon, chief of staff for DOJ, replied in a formal letter saying that no such records existed despite the above exchange between Schmaler and Gertz.

“For your information, neither this Office nor any of these senior leadership offices of the Department typically maintain records on individuals,” she wrote. “As such, this office would not maintain the type of records you are seeking.

“However, in an effort to be of assistance, please be advised that a search has been conducted of the electronic database of the Departmental Executive Secretariat, which is the official records repository for the Offices of the Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General, and Associate Attorney General, and no records subject to FOIA were located. A search has also been conducted in the Office of Information Policy and no records subject to the FOIA were located.”

Gee, thanks Carmen. Except that the records concerning DOJ and Boyle were maintained, located and sent.

Please be advised. If you’re the DOJ and want to get some bad press out there on a reporter who may or may not be a thorn in your side, Media Matters is on speed dial.

Chaffetz questioned Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on whether he is “aware of any apprehensions of suspected or known terrorists.”

There were actually four individuals trying to cross through the Texas border, who were apprehended at two different stations, that do have ties to known terrorist organizations in the Middle East.

WATCH:

At press time, Chaffetz’ staff were unable to confirm to Top Right News what nation from which these terrorists had originated, but noted that DHS had confirmed to Congressional intelligence members last week that ISIS is planning an infiltration of our Southern border.
