We tend not to pay any attention to Islamic terrorists these days because it’s been a while since they pulled off a big win.
The Manhattan Car Jihad attack was back in 2017 and the Pulse massacre, which had a huge death toll, was in 2016. Al Qaeda and ISIS have mostly outsourced their terrorism to local terrorists and while the FBI keeps breaking up terror plots, they rarely mature into anything.
And so until they pull one off, it becomes back page stuff.
Like this Forbes story which no one will pay attention to 5 minutes from now.
An alleged ISIS-linked operative in the U.S. was plotting to kill George W. Bush, going so far as to travel to Dallas in November to take video around the former president’s home and recruiting help from a team of compatriots he hoped to smuggle into the country over the Mexican border, according to an FBI search-warrant application filed March 23 and unsealed this week in the Southern District of Ohio.
I doubt that would convince Biden to secure the border. Not even if they were planning to kill Obama.
The FBI said it uncovered the scheme through the work of two confidential informants and surveillance of the alleged plotter’s account on the Meta-owned WhatsApp messaging platform. The suspect, based in Columbus, Ohio, said he wanted to assassinate Bush because he felt the former president was responsible for killing many Iraqis and breaking apart the country after the 2003 U.S. military invasion, according to the warrant.
Columbus has a sizable Muslim population. So does Dallas.
The alleged plot organizer had been in the U.S. since 2020 and had an asylum application pending, according to the FBI’s search-warrant application.
Does this mean that his asylum application gets rejected?
This is a little peek at how the entire mass migration complex is bringing terror to America. But I doubt that it would even get W. to rethink his support for immigration, let alone Democrats.
The alleged plotter claimed to be part of a unit called “Al-Raed,” meaning “Thunder,” that was led by a former Iraqi pilot for Saddam Hussein who had been based out of Qatar until his recent death, the warrant said. As many as seven members of the group would be sent to the U.S. to kill President Bush, according to a conversation described in the warrant, and the suspect’s job was “to locate and conduct surveillance on former president Bush’s residences and/or offices and obtain firearms and vehicles to use in the assassination.”
It always comes back to Qatar.
The Islamic terror state controls our foreign policy and is a sanctuary state for the Muslim Brotherhood, the Taliban, and seemingly every Jihadi on the planet.
