NYPD: Fighting Terrorism on Three Sides

Recent attacks show New York police have their hands full battling terror threats. That effort often is hindered by  politicians and interest groups.  Facing the terrorist threat head-on in New York City is not something that the NYPD shrinks back from. On the contrary, the men and women whose remarkable service has kept us safe welcome the fight. But it sure would be a lot easier if they didn't have to constantly look over their shoulders to defend against attacks by politically correct politicians and the activist groups who never get the facts straight.  Read More in IPT News...

ISIS Poised to Shift Into Deadly New Phase

ISIS has lost most of the territory it controlled in Iraq and Syria this year as a result of sustained military action by the United States and its allies.       The physical caliphate founded by terrorist leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi is no more. And the loss of territory by the ISIS  was coupled with the loss of almost all of the financing that paid for its operations.  The elimination of the physical caliphate means that the threat posed by radical Islamic terrorism will change drastically.  Radical Islamic groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda will start to think of new ways to carry out jihad and continue their war.  What will this new phase of the war against radical Islamic terrorism look like?                          Read more at FOX News..

Jailhouse Jihadi: The Intriguing Case of Charles Casey Spain

Often what comes out of prison is much worse than what went in. How else do we understand (explain) the case of Casey Charles Spain. He went to jail as a registered sex offender in 2010.  Seven years later he emerged from his prison cell as a committed jihadist who had sworn allegiance to Abu Bakr al Baghdadi and was willing to kill innocent men, women, and children for the cause of ISIS.                                                In August of 2017 he was arrested while on parole and charged with illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force conducted a sting operation to dupe Spain into thinking he was meeting with an ISIS soldier who would provide him with a weapon necessary to kill American infidels.                                                                       On November 3rd Spain pleaded guilty to illegal possession of a firearm and faces up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced in February of 2018.                                                                    While we are relieved that this would be jihadist is off the streets, the question remains as to how someone like Spain became radicalized while incarcerated.
