Another Terrorist is Released For "Good Behavior"

Johnny Spann / John Walker Lindh
John Walker Lindh took up arms in combat against the United States and was responsible for the death of CIA Officer John Micheal Spann. Now he's receiving time off for "Good Behavior" and getting out of prison early.

When he walks out of prison, he will have served about two and a half years less than his original 20-year sentence, having received an early release for his "good behavior" while incarcerated.     

Lindh is a committed jihadist who has not renounced his radical ideology during his 17 years in prison.  He took up arms in combat against the United States after attending an al-Qaida training camp and meeting with Osama bin Laden in June 2001.  Many believe Lindh was responsible in the death of John Micheal Spann, a decorated United States Marine officer serving with a CIA paramilitary unit in Afghanistan in 2001.                                      Giving early release to Lindh is a slap in the face to the Spann family.

Prison Officials Dismiss Chaplains For Security Reasons

The right chaplain can help the inmate on the path to rehabilitation and restoration of family ties. The wrong one can be like a wolf in sheep's clothing filling the inmate's mind with a radical ideology that pushes him or her down the road to jihad. Only a thorough vetting of religious clergy and volunteers can reduce that threat.    Germany appears to have learned this lesson recently. Authorities there recently discovered that over 85 percent of their Muslim prison chaplains were actually agents of the Turkish government, the Gatestone Institute reports. Those clerics had to be terminated after the Turkish government refused to have them go through security checks, which are required by German law for all prison chaplains.

How A Hate Group Used Taxpayer Dollars To Promote Racism

Ask the average U.S. taxpayer if they would give money to an organization that is openly racist and anti-Semitic and you would get a resounding "No"     And yet that is exactly what has happened, with the Nation of Islam receiving federal funds to operate within the U.S. prison system.  This despite the fact that the organization and its leader Louis Farrakhan have a called Jews "bloodsuckers" and white people "devils."                                                                      What possible rehabilitative value could this type of hate speech or ideology have for an individual in prison? It only gives him another group to hate or blame for his misfortune.                       

According to Bureau Of Prisons regulations cited in a 2004 Inspector General's report on Muslim chaplains, regarding the vetting of contract workers, "...a contractor or volunteer will be dismissed based on any credible evidence that the person has potential ties to any terrorist-affiliated organizations or individuals; advocates racism or violence."                                                     

What more does the BOP need before determining that the Nation of Islam crossed this line?                                                             Read the complete story in IPT News...

The Strasbourg Terror Attack: Only The Names Have Changed

"Ladies and gentlemen, the story you are about to hear is true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent." That was the opening line for the well-known TV and radio show "Dragnet," which told the story of criminals and law enforcement authorities' efforts to stop them.                                                                                                  The abbreviated version of that slogan, "Only the names have been changed" may well be applied to the latest terror attack that occurred in Strasbourg, France. A gunman identified as Cherif Chekatt shouting "Allahu Akbar" opened fire last Tuesday on a crowd enjoying the annual Christmas Market, snuffing out the lives of five innocent people and wounding 13 others. ISIS has claimed credit for the heinous attack.                                                              A close examination of the incident and the perpetrator reveals an all too familiar pattern.                                                                   

Cherif Chekatt, a French Moroccan, had 
1. an extensive criminal history
2. was radicalized in prison
3. known to authorities
4. on a terrorist watch list.              

We have heard that description too many times in recent years to not feel both frustration and anger.

CAIR Continues Building Its "Wall of Resistance" Against Law Enforcement

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)  claims to want to work with law enforcement agencies to "protect our nation," but recent actions by its San Francisco chapter reveal that the policy to "Build a Wall of Resistance" continues to be its driving force.  CAIR believes that the Department of Homeland Security's Countering Violent Extremism program unfairly targets Muslims and that law enforcement only uses the CVE programs to spy on the Muslim community. They also believes that all DHS CVE funding is "tainted" because it comes from the Trump administration, even though the Obama administration started the program.  Their most recent opposition was directed at the Alameda County Sheriff's Office for initiating a program that would work with community organizations to  "assist those individuals most susceptible to violent extremism." In other words, they wanted to help inmates avoid radicalizing influences from extremist groups seeking new members. The program would also address the issue of recidivism.
