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!

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
