NY Times Assumes al-Qaeda Has No Covert Ops?


No self respecting reporter would dare make a claim that there are no al-Qaeda operatives operating within the ranks of "unafilliated" terrorist groups or Jihadi militias.

And yet that is precisely what David D. Kirkpatrick's article in the New York Times, which claims there was no al-Qaeda connection to the Benghazi terrorist attack on 9-11-2012, would have us believe.

To believe that the hand of al-Qaeda does not guide, or does not manipulate covertly the action of impassioned radicals, is to believe that the CIA does not ever covertly influence the outcome of any events.

Kirkpatrick and the Times claim that "...Months of investigation by The New York Times, centered on extensive interviews with Libyans in Benghazi who had direct knowledge of the attack there and its context, turned up no evidence that Al Qaeda or other international terrorist groups had any role in the assault. The attack was led, instead, by fighters who had benefited directly from NATO’s extensive air power and logistics support during the uprising against Colonel Qaddafi. And contrary to claims by some members of Congress, it was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made video denigrating Islam..."

It isn't necessary to even mention the already published claims and assertions by Legislators on both sides of the proverbial "aisle" that discredit the Times' article.

And while there exists plenty of evidence that contradicts the Kirkpatrick claims, there is that one little tid-bit that blows his claims conclusively out of the water, and that is the glaring, underlying detail that al-Qaeda is able to either buy or infiltrate (or both) radical groups in order to accomplish its goals.

What evidence is there to support this?

How about the endless claims by the FBI and its concerns about "home-grown" terrorism.

How about the claims by our own intel operatives of internet recruitment attempts of Americans by, guess who?

Certainly al-Qaeda operates out in the open, but by the very nature of the type of organization that it is, it most definitely operates covertly, and most probably operates covertly  to inflame and to manipulate groups not officially affiliated with it.

Only a report by a "journalist" and a "newspaper," with a purpose other than the truth would leave out even the most minute possibility that that could be the case.

Only an account intent on advancing propaganda, and a specific ideological agenda, would leave out the possibility of such pertinent a detail.

The audacity and arrogance of such propagandists, who expect readers to actually believe its blatant falsehoods, reveals political desperation beyond the pale.

So now the left wing rag, New York Times is to be considered the legal/credible investigatory body of the United States? Their findings are that it must have been the You-Tube video, because some concerned investigators have used the term al Qaeda (incorrectly) to describe the perpetrators. REALLY?? I mean, come on! Who is kidding who?

We're ridiculously arguing about semantics as to what the terrorist group calls themselves? WHY? Did someone at the NY Times check their [the terrorists] library cards and discovered that there wasn't any al Qaeda affiliation stamped on their IDs? Were these murderers less deadly, than al Qaeda, but they function with no club name? This is absolutely criminal!

The regime concocted a fairy tale, Barry lied, Rice lied, Clinton won't testify under oath, 4 Americans were murdered because the insensitive morons did NOT send help. They simply had to hide Barry's international gun running scheme. This is without a doubt, an Impeachable offense.

After all of these mega stupid, costly, bi-partisan hearings, where the hell is the Special Prosecutor on this matter??? When will this be officially addressed as a criminal matter? Why was D. Issa squirming around in his chair during the hack left-wing MSNBC questioning? Apparently they're all just hung up on the word 'al Qaeda'. It's like watching a bad movie with bad actors. This is totally insane!

ALERT ALERT

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
