In Gander I speak of the revolving door through which terrorist move in and out of our judicial system to continue carrying out acts of unspeakable horror.
Part of the problem lies in treating these soldiers of National Socialism as if they were common criminals instead of prisoners of war.
This is the first of a series where I intend to bring to your attention the consequences of that misguided policy, if not the criminality of those who engage in it.
I warn you:
There are hundreds of examples, not all of them Muslim. This is going to be disquieting.
The Faces of Terror
In 2001, a Moroccan man was captured in Afghanistan by US troops and was transported to the brand new facility at Guantanamo Bay. One of the early arrivals, his number there was ISN 72 —although some say 64, what do I know?
When he was captured he was NOT stealing chickens, and gave his name as Reswan Abdesalam, but his fingerprints said otherwise.
Meet Lahsen Ikassrian, born in Targist, Morocco in 1972.
A close associate of Imad Eddin Barakat Yarkas, AKA Abu Dadah, the head of al-Qa’ida in Spain, mastermind of the Madrid bombings in 2004 (known in Spain simply as 11-M); and a close associate of Abu Mussab al-Suri, of whom we have already spoken at some length, and will again.
At the Combatant Status Review Tribunal, the following was charged:
- Detainee is associated with al-Qaida and the Taliban.
- The detainee admits being a member of the Taliban.
- Detainee was taken to Mazer e-Sharif by Taliban forces.
- Detainee admits to associating with Yunnus Shokuri and Radwan Shokuri, both members of al-Qaida affiliated terrorist groups
- Detainee engaged in hostilities against the US or its coalition partners.
- Detainee admits purchasing a Kalashnikov rifle in Kabul in May or June 2001.
- Detainee was observed on the front line and during the retreat in Afghanistan and at Qala-I Junghi prison.
- Detainee was injured during the U.S. bombing of Konduz.
- Detainee took refuge in an underground hiding area with Taliban forces during the U.S. bombing of Mazar e-Sharif
- Detainee was captured by U.S. forces with other Taliban members in Mazar e-Sharif. How do you like the fella so far?
And idiots in the US where bringing suit against the government for what they deemed the “illegal detention: of non-combatants. On what evidence? None whatsoever.
On July 3rd, 2005, this fine gentleman was extradited to Spain for trial, mostly because of bullshit like that spewed by UC Davis’ Center for the Study of Human Rights in the Americas:
On October 11th, 2006, the Spanish Court acquitted him…because he had been interrogated in Jul 2002 by Spaniards!
One can’t make this stuff up.
Lahsen Ikassrian, convinced more than ever that he could do what he wanted, moved on to loftier activities while leftards rejoiced in their triumph against the evil West:
And off he went to enjoy hookah bars and recruit for A’-Qa’ida and ISIS. A leftard and radical celebrity.
Ten years after the bombing in Madrid with hundreds of victims, a singular idiot. Jordi Evole, had no better idea than to interview this poor fellow painting him as a poor victim of Western islamophobia.
Here’s the link, the interview shows in 33:27 to 46:46. “One day they will pay” — the terrorist said — “but how I do not know.”
He did have a pretty good idea, though, for as he was playing the victim on Spanish TV courtesy of an imbecile, somebody woke up for fifteen minutes, and Spanish Police busted an IS cell in Madrid and Melilla nabbing a bunch of asswipes.
Guess who was the leader? OK. I’ll show you:
But wait! There’s more! In 2009 Spanish Judge Baltazar Garzón opened an investigation into “torture” suffered by this hapless witness caught in the insidious Guantanamo web. The SOB declared to AFP that he would probe “the perpetrators, the instigators, the necessary collaborators and accomplices” to crimes of torture at the prison at Guantanamo Bay.
An investigation triggered by hand-picked documents released by… This jewel:
Adding insult to injury, Judge Garzón then launched an investigation into…The Bush administration! That’ll teach those evil Americans to play fast and loose with innocent folk like Lahsen Ikassrian! The Telegraph went so far as to speculate: “Even if the worst that happens is that former President Bush, Vice President Cheney, and all those who served in their administrations find it advisable not to visit Spain or take international flights that stop off there…”
Beautiful. While the “victim of discrimination” was busy preparing a reign of terror in Spain, the “criminals” were the President and Vice-President of the United States. Imbecility on an industrial scale. Or is it really? One must, of necessity consider the possibility that the sympathies of the European Social Democrats lie squarely to the perpetrators of terror and are thus offended not by the terrorists perpetrating wholesale murder on their streets as they bit like rats on anyone who actually tries to fight them off.
So, let’s recap:
- 2001: Asswipe Lahsen Ikassrian is captured on the battlefield in Afghanistan and taken as a prisoner of war. (2001)
- 2002: Spanish authorities question him in Guantanamo.
- 2005: Based on his association to the Spain’s AQ, extradited to Spain.
- 2006: Spanish courts acquit him because, God forbid, he was interrogated by Spaniards in foreign soil (Guantanamo)
- 2009: Ikassrian recruits for Al-Qa’ida and organizes a cell of terrorists in Madrid and Melilla, while suing the Spanish government for damages over his earlier detention and living off of Spain’s welfare system!
- 2009: Spanish Courts launch investigation of alleged torture on the basis of declarations of this so very credible witness, and on partial documents released by Barak Obama as a political stunt.
- 2009: Spanish Courts launch investigation of the possible role played by the US administration in those dreadful activities. None of these last two pay any attention to the terrorist activities being conducted by this soldier of Al-Qa’ida under their very noses.
- 2014: Asswipe Lahsen Ikassrian nabbed by Madrid cops as leader of a terrorist group planning to blow up half of Spain, with tentacles throughout the country. A massacre is narrowly averted.
I’m sure there is a lesson here. And in HUNDREDS of cases like this.
But am currently too furious to state it.
Where are those imbeciles who wanted Guantanamo closed and the vermin released?
The folks at UC Davis, Jordi Evole, Baltazar Garzón and so many others have a lot of questions to answer. Like why they inevitably side with and enable the worst of criminals. Is it political expediency, sympathy, or plain old idiocy?
It is up to them to respond.
