There is a reason the Waukesha Massacre has disappeared from the national media.

There’s a reason MSNBC, CNN, and CBS simply call it a “parade crash” and quickly move on to other news.

There’s a reason President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris did not prejudge the violent, racist, and BLM-backed career criminal charged with murder for deliberately driving his SUV to a Christmas parade in the predominantly white town of Waukesha, Wisconsin on Sunday, killing six innocent people. , including an 8-year-old boy, and injuring 62 others.

There’s a reason the media isn’t curious about the hateful, anti-white social media posts of suspect Darrell Brooks.

Waukesha doesn’t interest these people, not just because the story doesn’t serve their political purposes, as the Kyle Rittenhouse affair did when they wanted to portray Donald Trump as a white supremacist.

No, they are burying Waukesha’s story because it threatens the very heart of the progressive revolution that is shaking the country: the “reform” of the criminal justice system.

Six people would still be alive if Milwaukee hadn’t been hijacked by progressive prosecutors.

“The Milwaukee Experiment,” he was called in a gushing article by Jeffrey Toobin in the New Yorker in 2015, praising Milwaukee Democratic DA John Chisholm.

Darrell Brooks had a long rap sheet of past crimes spanning over 50 pages.

Elected in 2006, Chisholm is a leading figure in the progressive movement of prosecutors.

His office released Brooks on $ 1,000 bail on Nov. 16, after he allegedly punched his girlfriend in the face and purposely ran her over with the SUV he allegedly used in Sunday’s attack. Brooks’ criminal record is over 50 pages long.

Chisholm pretends to be dismayed at the low bond now, but it was part of his plan.

He knows what happens when you let violent and repeat offenders out of jail, cripple the police and rob them of their powers, break the adversarial system, turn prosecutors into social workers, and close prisons.

Everyone knows. Crime and violence are skyrocketing, along with mental illness and homelessness. There is nothing compassionate or fair about progressive criminal justice reforms. They tyrannize over the weakest and most vulnerable, the elderly, the infirm, women and children.

Yes, Chisholm knew that and he didn’t care.

“Will there be an individual that I will hijack or that I will put in [a] treatment program, who is going to come out and kill someone? “He told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in 2007.” You bet. Guaranteed. It’s guaranteed to happen.

Guaranteed.

Chisholm was not elected as a progressive, but his priority immediately became the elimination of “racial disparity”.

He didn’t care if more black people were committing crimes. It all depended on the outcome.

Today, he boasts of having almost achieved his goal of eliminating racial disparities in prisons: “In some areas there is almost no disparity,” he told a panel on March 11, when he appeared with the infamous San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin speaking about the “Prosecutors Movement.”

Chisholm boasted of having revolutionized the role of the prosecutor “to be a line prosecutor who takes and examines frozen moments in time.” . . and actually take the prosecutor out of the courthouse and integrate him directly into the community and give him a broad mandate to help resolve issues. “

He describes these quasi-social workers as “community prosecutors”. . . Allowing prosecutors to do more than prosecute is actually very empowering. . . We must get away from what we all have [have] been brainwashed into the adversarial system.

The only obstacle he says he faces now is the “fear” of crime in the community, which pushes state lawmakers to pass “bad law.” With 191 homicides last year in Milwaukee alone, “it’s really hard to argue.”

“We are at a time in our country where violence is simply invading the meaning of our security perspective. . . People don’t feel safe.

I wonder why.

Boudin told the panel that being a “progressive prosecutor is no longer enough”.

He said “my friend,” former Queens DA candidate Tiffany Caban, “said it best. It’s not about being progressive or conservative. It’s about being” decarceral. ” . “

It means abolishing prisons.

This is not what the Americans want. But it is an article of faith for progressives.

You only have to watch Rep. Rashida Tlaib try to justify her prison abolition bill in an interview this week with Jonathan Swan of Axios to see that the policy is so absurd it doesn’t have to be. no way to justify it. Although her bill explicitly frees everyone from jail, she simply denied that it means child molesters and violent rapists will roam the streets.

Progressives claim that everyone in prison is just there to smoke weed, while showing utter disregard for victims of crime.

In case you have the illusion that this is not all an ideological strategy to destroy law and order, take a look at Boudin’s revolutionary pedigree.

He is the son of Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, Marxist terrorist members of the Weather Underground, who were jailed for the murders of two police officers and a security guard in the Brink’s heist in 1981 in Rockland County. Boudin was 14 months old at the time and was brought up by Bill Ayers, Barack Obama’s radical mentor and Weather Underground luminary.

Last year, Boudin succeeded in putting pressure on the government of the day. Andrew Cuomo to commute his father’s 75-year sentence to life in prison and Gilbert was released this month. Her mother was released in 2003 and immediately was given an honorary post of Assistant Professor at Columbia University where she works – you guessed it – on dismantling “mass incarceration” and transforming. of the criminal justice system. These people are rooted in the establishment.

Guess what the National Terrorists affiliated with the Weather Underground did on November 7, 1983? They bombed the Capitol in Washington, DC, knocking a hole in a wall and spraying windows, chandeliers, and furniture. Yet President Biden tells us that the worst attack on democracy was the riot on the Capitol on January 6 of this year.

One of the conspirators convicted in the 1983 Capitol bombing, Susan Rosenberg, had her 58-year sentence commuted by President Bill Clinton in 2001.

What did she do then? She was instrumental in founding and fundraising for Black Lives Matter, a self-proclaimed Marxist organization that advocates for the abolition of the nuclear family.

So we come full circle.

Progressive criminal justice reforms are not about equal justice. When it comes to Trump supporters, such as Kyle Rittenhouse or the January 6 defendants still on remand in a Washington jail, progressives are viciously punitive.

They are militarizing the criminal justice system to terrorize their ideological opponents and wreak havoc.

It is a revolution, and we will all be its victims if we do not wake up.

Cllr Nickerson first claimed that it had been hacked, and in an apology statement he said: “On November 15th a defamatory tweet, for which I accept full responsibility, was posted on my twitter account.

The tweet was aimed at Jeremy Corbyn and included a fake photo of him laying a poppy wreath at the site of a burning taxi outside the Liverpool Women’s Hospital where a terrorist attack took place on Remembrance Sunday , killing a suicide bomber and injuring others.

“The fake photograph, captioned with the word ‘unsurprisingly’, gave the totally false impression that Jeremy Corbyn supports terrorist violence, including suicide bombings, which without any hesitation I fully accept that he does not.

“Without reservation, I completely withdraw any suggestion or inference that Jeremy Corbyn is a supporter of terrorist violence.

“The tweet was in error and I withdraw it. I wholeheartedly and sincerely apologize to Mr Corbyn for the hurt and distress caused to him by the tweet.

“I fully accept that the posting of the message the day after Remembrance Sunday only made the slanderous tweet hurtful.

“As a result, I have agreed to pay Mr Corbyn substantial damages, which he donates to charity, as well as his legal costs.”

Emad al-Swealmeen blew himself up in a Dave Perry cab, and counterterrorism police are still investigating a suspected bomb factory he ordered the cab from.

Detectives are still trying to establish whether the hospital or a remembrance service near Liverpool Cathedral was the intended target.

Commenting on the ‘speedy settlement’ in the case, Mr Corbyn said: ‘The bombing of Liverpool Women’s Hospital on Remembrance Sunday was a gruesome crime, which could have killed or maimed countless victims, including new mothers and their babies.

“Councilor Paul Nickerson’s Twitter post about me failed to understand the seriousness of the threat and was a disservice to everyone affected by the attack and their loved ones.

“So I welcome his decision to apologize for his slanderous post, agree not to repeat the tweet he deleted and pay substantial damages and legal costs.

“This substantial settlement will be used to support charities close to my heart: including one in Liverpool and one in my constituency.”

Daughter of Briton Killed by ISIS Describes Confrontation with Death | UK News https://capperi.net/daughter-of-briton-killed-by-isis-describes-confrontation-with-death-uk-news/ Sun, 21 Nov 2021 22:00:00 +0000 https://capperi.net/daughter-of-briton-killed-by-isis-describes-confrontation-with-death-uk-news/ The daughter of a British aid worker who was murdered by members of an ISIS terrorist cell described watching video of her beheading and looking a suspected IS killer in the eye in court .

The daughter of a British aid worker who was murdered by members of an ISIS terrorist cell described watching video of her beheading and looking a suspected IS killer in the eye in court .

David Haines was captured just days after arriving in Syria in 2013 and the following year was beheaded. The murder, which was recorded and published online, was one of several Western and Japanese captives of the gang of four ISIS militants nicknamed “The Beatles” by their hostages because of their British accent.

Last week Haines’ daughter Bethany flew to see El Shafee Elsheikh appear in court. He has been charged with several offenses related to the capture and beheading of four US hostages killed by the terrorist cell, but is not facing trial for the murder of Haines.

In the program: The Isis ‘Beatles’: Blood On Their Hands, which airs on ITV on Monday, Bethany Haines speaks openly and emotionally about her reaction to the news of her father’s death, as a teenager and still at school.

“It was almost a relief in a way, because you’ve been waiting for it for so long and it’s building up in your head, but then you have to realize that you’ll never see your father again.” she said.

“I was told not to look at him [the video], but it’s hard when so many people come up to you and ask you, so I locked myself in the bathroom and, you know, I went google, and there he came and sat down above. .. I felt physically ill. It was final, you know? I withdrew and just needed a little time to come to terms with what I had just witnessed.

Haines said it was after journalist James Foley was killed in August 2014 that she lost hope of a rescue mission, saying: “It changed everything.” She remembered that one of the hardest things back then was not being able to tell anyone that her father was being held hostage. At the same time, he was initially assured that he would come home. After Foley’s death, however, his fears increased when his father paraded in an orange jumpsuit with a knife to his neck.

She said, “That’s when I knew he wasn’t coming back. And we had to try to prepare for each day that the video would come out and finally it was done.

Elsheikh and fellow Briton Alexanda Amon Kotey were extradited to the United States last year after being stripped of their British citizenship. In September, Kotey pleaded guilty to several counts. As part of the plea deal, which will see him return to the UK after 15 years to serve his sentence, he has agreed to meet with each of the victims’ families if they request it.

The group’s leader, Mohammed Emwazi, known as “Jihadi John,” was killed in a US airstrike in 2015. The group’s fourth member, Aine Davis, was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2017 .

Elsheikh is due to be tried in January. After seeing him in court, Haines said, “He just looked me straight in the eye and I looked back at him. I’m not going to be intimidated by him. I’m not going to look away.

Rittenhouse’s verdict was a message to white youth: if you think black lives matter, your life means nothing https://capperi.net/rittenhouses-verdict-was-a-message-to-white-youth-if-you-think-black-lives-matter-your-life-means-nothing/ Sat, 20 Nov 2021 04:11:57 +0000 https://capperi.net/rittenhouses-verdict-was-a-message-to-white-youth-if-you-think-black-lives-matter-your-life-means-nothing/ Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial never dealt directly with race.

Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial never dealt directly with race. Everyone involved in the shooting – the victims and the killer – were young white men.

Nor was it entirely a question of whether Rittenhouse killed Anthony Huber, 26, and Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, in self-defense, as the jury ruled on Friday. It is easy to make this case a justice of self-defense, but it is much more complex.

Nothing in America is that simple anymore.

From the moment Rittenhouse was accused of killing two men and injuring another with his semi-automatic rifle during a protest against police gunfire on Jacob Blake, a black man, this case was to send a message.

This time it was from the far right to young white people who support the Black Lives Matter movement.

“Don’t get involved in social justice reform. Don’t protest the senseless police killings. Just sit back and enjoy your white privilege. If you take to the streets with the Black Lives Matter crowd, you might end up dying. And we’ll do everything we can to make sure your killer is free.

In other words, white youth, if you believe black lives matter, your life means nothing.

There is no evidence that the jury knowingly became an accomplice in making sure this message was clear. Although predominantly white, jurors appeared to exercise due diligence in listening to testimony and deliberating about 26 hours before delivering a verdict.

Nobody blames them. But the verdict will have a lasting negative impact.

We don’t know why Rosenbaum was there that night. He suffered from a mental illness. But Huber was among those who took to the streets of Kenosha because they believed a white policeman falsely shot Blake, 29, seven times in the back in front of his children. Blake remained partially paralyzed.

Gaige Grosskreutz, 27, who was shot and injured by Rittenhouse, said he was an EMT and a trained paramedic and was on the scene to provide medical assistance.

It is likely that these young men, like many of us, had heard so many stories of unfair shootings with the police that they were no longer shocked. It is possible that they felt they had to get out of the sideline and take a stand.

The contempt of the right for the Black Lives Matter movement is no secret. No one needs to remember his campaign to portray the social justice group as a terrorist organization and to label everyone who attends a protest as looters or rioters. We’re used to it.

But when Rittenhouse, a young white man, shot three other young white men during the protest, the right wing saw a unique opportunity to turn the shooter into a hero, without the baggage that would normally come if the victims were black.

It was a rare opportunity to send a warning to white sons and daughters across the country – that teaming up with Black Lives Matter is dangerous and deadly.

While the leaders of Black Lives Matter and the majority of the protest organizers are African-American, the movement has gained a diverse following. The protests have increasingly attracted young white people, many of whom are college students, who do not tolerate ruthless police killings and other injustices against African Americans.

This is what people on the far right fear most. The last thing they want is young white people to stand side by side with young African Americans carrying “Black Lives Matter” signs.

They are terrified that future generations of whites will have no tolerance for social injustice. That is why they categorically oppose teaching school children the true racial history of this country.

They want the white children of the future to grow up as ignorant as they are about the systemic racism that has fueled social injustice in America for centuries. They’re content to raise generations of young people who flirt with white supremacy, show up at Black Lives Matter protests with semi-automatic rifles, and kill whenever they want.

Rittenhouse’s verdict gave them a pass to do so. Hopefully most white youth will refuse to accept it.

At around 4:20 p.m., he walked down Bourke Street in a blue rodeo ute filled with gas cylinders he had bought at Bunnings and parked between Swanston and Russell streets, before lighting the ute.

As he tried to get out, he grabbed a knife and, within 19 seconds, stabbed Mr. Malaspina to death while seriously injuring two other people who ran to Shire Ali’s rescue, fearing that he be an innocent victim of a car fire.

Shire Ali then ran towards two uniformed officers before being shot later. He died during surgery in hospital from a gunshot wound to his chest.

Many witnesses said that Shire Ali shouted “Allah” and “Allahu Akbar” as he rushed at the police and pedestrians.

In June, State Coroner John Cain discovered that the fatal knife attack was a premeditated act of terror and called for major changes in the sharing of information between criminal and intelligence agencies.

Mr Cain discovered that there had been missed opportunities before the attack, including intelligence gaps, incomplete tasks and delays in dismissing Shire Ali for assessment as part of a deradicalization program. .

NEW YORK – Renowned international freedom and democracy activist Natan Sharansky on Wednesday urged Ohio’s Oberlin College to fire scandal-victimized religion teacher Mohammad Mahallati over his alleged role in assisting the Islamic Republic of Iran in crimes against humanity as Tehran’s ambassador to the UN.

“According to Amnesty International, in 1988, Mr. Mahallati knew that the Iranian regime was massacring thousands of innocent political prisoners and covering up the facts of the massacre, implicating him in a crime against humanity. Today, thousands of Iranians live in anguish, mourning the loss of their family members, who were mercilessly buried in mass graves, unable to mourn at their graves. Many of these family members contacted President Ambar of Oberlin and demanded a full investigation into Mahallati’s past, but received no response, ”wrote Natan Sharansky, president of the Institute for the Study. of Anti-Semitism and Global Politics (ISGAP), Dr. Charles Asher. Small, executive director of ISGAP, and Haras Rafiq, acting director general of ISGAP and administrator of the UK charity Muslims Against Anti-Semitism.

The joint letter was first obtained by Jerusalem post and addressed to College President Carmen Twillie Ambar and the College Board of Directors. ISGAP is a non-partisan organization dedicated to academic research on anti-Semitism and other forms of racism with an emphasis on education and public policy.

The signatories of the letter wrote that “it is time for Oberlin College to reconsider its defense of Mr. Mahallati and prioritize its students, as well as the victims and survivors of Mr. Mahallati’s crimes. It’s time for Oberlin to remove Mr. Mahallati from his faculty.

The ISGAP letter added that “Oberlin College is an institution with a proud heritage of promoting human rights and social justice and where students value global outreach. Oberlin College now has the opportunity to provide its students with tangible lessons in civic and ethical responsibility, political and historical awareness, and empathy.

In a statement to To post in October 2020, Mahallati categorically denied being involved in the 1988 massacre in Iran.

However, Oberlin students, alumni, Iranian-Americans, and legal experts have claimed that Mahallati’s apology is a collection of lies.

Marta Braiterman Tanenbaum, an Oberlin graduate in 1972, told the To post: “How could he not know? I cannot believe that a high diplomatic representative, working for a despotic regime, blithely ignored the mass execution of political prisoners. Oberlin College, where I and 4 of my family attended, has always employed faculty who have recognized and aligned with human rights causes for two centuries, from the rescue of Wellington to Ohio from the time of the anti-Vietnam war to today’s concern for inclusion. “

She added: “I am amazed that our current president of the university has not met the Iranian refugees and families, who raised their concerns to him from the start, and who are now demanding a public protest for a simple answer. The recent blank statement, given by the college, goes against Amnesty International and the testimony of these relatives, whose relatives were thrown into anonymous graves. My alma mater Oberlin wants to stand out as a place of consciousness. This whitewashed statement instead of investigating their own professor, who is accused of covering up such heinous crimes, is the opposite of everything I taught Oberlin: critical thinking, protecting those whose rights were violated and the employment of professors whose close relationships with students convey decent values.

The Oberlin College student newspaper Oberlin Review ran a scathing editorial on November 5 titled “Irrefutable Evidence Against Mahallati” and lambasted the university leadership for its contested defense of the Iranian regime’s former envoy.

The student journalists wrote that “The bottom line of all this is that Oberlin College, an institution we hold dear, employs and defends someone who is likely responsible for covering up crimes against humanity. The College claims it exonerated Mahallati in an internal investigation, but it refuses to disclose details of the investigation, including who the investigating party was, what documents they reviewed and what would constitute a verdict of ” guilty “. The College also refuses to speak with activists and family members who denounce Mahallati’s employment at the College. Many activists say they were blocked by President Carmen Twillie Ambar on Twitter after trying to get her attention to the issue by tagging her.

Oberlin College refused to provide the To post with a copy of his report freeing Mahallati. The Oberlin Review blamed the college leadership for “a blatant omission by several other groups that have been – and continue to be – persecuted in Iran, including leftists, LGBTQ + people and Baha’is.”

According to the student editorial, “Iran was so successful in covering up its crimes against humanity – through spokespersons like Mahallati and many others – that it was able to continue to perpetrate such crimes until nowadays. More blatantly, Mahallati’s rhetoric of the Bahá’ís laid the groundwork for Iran to commit genocide against the Bahá’í community. To this day, Bahá’ís are systematically persecuted, tortured and killed in Iran.

In a direct report on the November 2 protest against Mahallati in college, the Oberlin Review reported that Iranian-American student Sophie Bernstein said: “I think it is very unreasonable that the administration has not saw the organizers of this event and I think that [it] tries to cover up something that is undoubtedly true, adding: “I think it is not correct of him to specifically teach ethics and morals as a teacher here, especially when he has covered mass murders of political activists. I think a lot of Oberlin students here, we take for granted the freedoms we have – for example, to question authority, to question government, to be gay, to be communist, … but our people have been murdered for it.

Student Max Stuart told the Journal he was aware of the charges against Mahallati before starting his freshman year in 2021 at Oberlin. “I hope not only that he will be fired, but that he will be in jail,” Stuart told the newspaper.

The entry of Sharansky, who spent nine years in Soviet prisons for his human rights activism, into Oberlin’s rank raises the bar in a controversy that the university leadership seeks to cover up, according to his critics. Sharansky and his co-authors accused the college of also condoning Mahallati’s genocidal anti-Semitism and incitement to jihadist violence against Jews and Israel.

“It has come to our attention that an Oberlin College faculty member Mohammad Jafar Mahallati has engaged in war crimes and called for a global jihad against the Jews of Israel during his tenure. Iranian Ambassador to the United Nations at the end of the 1980s. We are also aware that Mr. Mahallati has continued his vicious pursuits on the Oberlin campus, attributing anti-Israel readings to his students and asking them to portray the terrorist organization, Hamas, in a positive light, ” noted the letter.

The governments of the United States and the EU have designated Hamas as a terrorist organization.

The Post contacted members of the college board. The only member to respond was Ted Brandt, CEO of Marathon Capital, LLC, who wrote, “Your rating is the first I hear about this issue. I am traveling to the US today / tomorrow, but expect to be briefed on the situation later this week.

Chairman of the Board, Chris Canavan, who is a partner of Lion’s Head Global Partners, declined to respond. To post Media questions to vice chairman of the board, Chesley Maddox-Dorsey, who is the CEO of A Wonder Media Company, went unanswered. President Amber did not respond to a To post to question.

Lawdan Bazargan, the Iranian-American human rights activist who organized the protest against Mahallati in November, told the Post that she sent letters to administrators but they did not respond.

Bazargan, whose brother Bijan was assassinated by the regime for his leftist views in 1988, said: “We want Oberlin College to fire him. [Mahallati] because Amnesty International accused him of crimes against humanity.

An online petition on change.org calling for Mahallati’s dismissal has racked up more than 500 new signatures in the past two weeks, bringing the current signing level to 2,571.

Sam Kermanian, senior advisor to the Iranian-American Jewish Federation, told the Post that “Mahallati is someone who has used his ‘diplomatic’ mantle to lie, deceive and cover up atrocities of a terrorist regime for decades. is the last person we should want to educate our young people.

Caiazzo’s Bronze Star Citation Says He “Has Distinguished For Exceptionally Meritorious Service” For His Leading Role On An Advanced Surgical Team (FST) From November 15, 2020 – May 21, 2021 His dedication and ability, we are told, “ensured the safety and accountability of the surgical team under the constant threat of attacks from the Taliban and Al Qaeda terrorist organizations.”

Caiazzo oversaw the daily functioning of two medical teams of ten, he said, both in war-torn southern Afghanistan. “One was in Kandahar and the other near the town of Lashkargah in Helmand province. They are about forty-five minutes by Chinook from each other. A lot of time was spent training, preparing for an event involving a large number of victims. “Being part of an FST, you don’t see trauma every day, but you have to be prepared. “

During their deployment, Caiazzo’s team treated twenty patients, mostly Afghan Special Forces soldiers or members of the Afghan National Army. “The injuries varied between gunshot wounds, head trauma [traumatic brain injuries], and other injuries consistent with being caught in a bomb explosion, ”he said. “With a lot of these internal injuries, you couldn’t see anything visually wrong on the outside, but you could tell they were having issues based on their vital signs. The victims were often confused, oblivious to their surroundings and what was going on, ”added Caiazzo.

“Every day was a different challenge,” he said. “People go through a lot of emotions during a deployment like this, and very strong bonds are forged. A team member experienced the loss of a relative while there, but such was his dedication to the mission, he chose to stay with us and complete the tour.

The Pakistani government and the banned terrorist group Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) have agreed to a month-long ceasefire from Tuesday to continue talks to achieve lasting peace in the country, according to a statement.

The two sides will respect the ceasefire period, which could be extended subject to the consent of both sides, TTP spokesman Muhammad Khurasani said in the statement.

The TTP, commonly referred to as the Pakistani Taliban, is a banned terrorist organization based along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

He has been involved in various attacks in Pakistan for more than a decade, which have killed thousands of people and are said to have used Afghan soil to prepare terrorist attacks there.

The government is now trying to use the influence of the Afghan Taliban over the TTP to reach a peace deal and end the violence.

The statement indicates that the TTP is an Islamic jihadist movement comprising the Pakistani people who have always kept the interest of the supreme country. No one can deny the fact that talks are part of wars.

The TTP has agreed to the formation of negotiating teams that will move the peace process forward in light of the demands of both sides.

Last month, the government was criticized by politicians and victims of terrorism after Prime Minister Imran Khan revealed in an interview that his government was in talks with the TTP for “reconciliation” with the help of the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid defended the government’s decision, saying the negotiations were for the “good Taliban”.

After the terrorist Attack on the airport in Kabul, capital of Afghanistan, which killed more than 170 Afghan civilians and 13 American soldiers, President Joe Biden issued a warning to Islamic State fighters. “We are going to hunt you down and make you pay,” he said on August 26. Three days later, Biden authorized a drone strike that the United States said wiped out a dangerous cell of ISIS fighters with the intention of staging another attack on Kabul airport.

Biden presented that strike, and another the day before, as proof of his commitment to fighting terrorists in Afghanistan even as he declared the 20-year war there was over. “We struck ISIS-K from a distance, days after they murdered 13 of our military and dozens of innocent Afghans, ”he said in a speech at the White House. “And at ISIS-K: we’re not done with you yet.”

But the Kabul strike, which targeted a white Toyota Corolla, did not kill any ISIS operatives. The victims were 10 civilians, including seven children. The driver of the car, Zemari Ahmadi, was a respected employee of a US aid organization. Following a New York Times investigation that fully exposed the lie of the US version of events, the Pentagon and the White House admitted they killed innocent civilians, calling it a “horrific tragedy of war. “.

This week, the Pentagon released a summary of its classified review of the attack, which it initially hailed as a “fair strike” that foiled an impending terrorist plot. The results were predictable. The report recommended that no staff member be held responsible for the murder of 10 civilians; there was no “criminal negligence” as the report puts it. The fact that the US military spent eight hours monitoring “targets,” that a child could be seen in their own footage minutes before the strike – this was seen as a fog of war moment. The operators leading the strike “had a real conviction that there was an imminent threat to American forces,” said Air Force Inspector General Lt. Gen. Sami D. Said.

They made a mistake, he said, not a crime.

The United States has pledged to compensate survivors of the drone strike. It is part of a long American tradition of treating its widespread killings of civilians in the so-called war on terror as innocent mistakes in the pursuit of peace and security. The general who conducted the review says he made recommendations on how to tinker with targeted murder operations to reduce the likelihood of other honest mistakes (as the Pentagon considers them) that wipe out entire families.

Nothing of the sort is new. It’s a cycle that accelerated under President Barack Obama (when Biden was vice president), continued during Donald Trump’s presidency, and does not abate in the Biden era.

While the Pentagon absolves itself of this crime, the Biden administration continues its persecution of whistleblowers who denounced this system of murdering innocent people. Daniel Hale, a military veteran who has pleaded guilty to leaking classified documents revealing deadly weaknesses in the drone program, is serving four years in prison. (Prosecutors said these documents formed the basis of The Drone Papers, a series of investigative articles published by The Intercept.) Among other revelations, Hale’s documents revealed that up to nine in ten victims of the strikes US drones in Afghanistan were not the targets. In the recent Biden drone strike, 10 of the 10 were innocent civilians.

While Hale was indicted under the Espionage Act during Trump’s tenure, Biden’s Justice Department pursued him with vengeance. In October, Hale was inexplicably transferred to a “communications management unit” at Marion US Penitentiary in southern Illinois. CMUs are used to severely limit an inmate’s ability to communicate with the outside world, subject them to extreme periods of isolation, and allow intensified monitoring of their communications and visits. CMUs are regularly labeled as “terrorist units”.

And as the Pentagon mountain of lies about the August drone strike in Afghanistan crumbled, the Biden administration continued its quest to extradite UK-detained WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for the offense. for publishing evidence of US war crimes. The Biden administration has made it clear that it will uphold America’s long tradition of exonerating its killers and punishing those who denounce them.
