Obama administration secretly used taxpayer money to scout move for Guantanamo detainees 

In violation of federal law, the Obama administration secretly used taxpayer money to fund an official inspection of several U.S. cities as possible locations to move terror detainees held at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp.

——

The Obama administration ordered the Pentagon to spend U.S. taxpayer funds for a domestic search of “possible Guantanamo detainee relocation” sites, according to documents obtained by the Free Beacon. United States law bars the administration from spending taxpayer money on its effort to move Gitmo suspects onto American soil.The disclosure has prompted a congressional inquiry to determine who in the Obama administration ordered the relocation search and how taxpayer funds were authorized for that purpose, according to a formal letter sent by lawmakers to the Defense Department on Monday and obtained by the Free Beacon. The disclosure of this activity by the Obama administration has renewed concerns on Capitol Hill that the White House will make a last-minute effort to shutter the Gitmo prison and ship the remaining detainees to the United States, despite laws prohibiting the transfers.

Mosul’s Liberation From ISIL ‘Inevitable,’ Canadian General Says 

The liberation of Mosul, Iraq, from the control of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant fighters is inevitable, Canadian Armed Forces Brig. Gen. Dave J. Anderson of Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve told Pentagon reporters here today.

Speaking via teleconference from Baghdad, OIR’s director of partner force development and the ministerial liaison team said, as the U.S.-led coalition continues to support Iraqi security forces’ operations to seize Mosul, that he has “every confidence” in the Iraqi security forces’ ability to retake Mosul.“The Iraqis have proven time and again they can and will conduct complex and decisive operations and that they have the will to defeat [ISIL],” Anderson said.Plans are being finalized for Mosul’s liberation, while shaping operations, force positioning, logistics and ammunition and the relentless employment of U.S.-led coalition strikes set the stage for success in Mosul, he added.“Following the inevitable liberation of Mosul, it will take an estimated 30,000 to 45,000 hold forces for such a large city, employing local police who will serve as the face of security for Iraq,” Anderson said.Recruiting, Training Increase“We have stepped up our emphasis on police training and recruiting tribal forces, adding 5,000 local police and over 20,000 tribal fighters,” the general said. Those forces, he added, “will be the key to holding gains and protecting the newly liberated Iraqi citizens, and soon, over a million more to be freed from [ISIL] oppression in Mosul.”When coalition training shifted from counterinsurgency to a combined arms maneuver approach, the Iraqis learned how to integrate infantry, armor, artillery, engineers, aviation and other combat multipliers to achieve an overwhelming advantage on the battlefield, he said.“Each day, the government of Iraq is closer to accomplishing its goal of liberating Iraqis” from ISIL’s hold, Anderson said. “The coalition will continue to support the Iraqi government and Iraqi forces to execute their plan to liberate Mosul at the time of their choosing.”Concurrent with the operations to liberate Mosul, Anderson said his team will continue to assist the Iraqis in developing necessary forces and training to ensure the ISF’s long-term security and success in its war on

Things Are Going From Bad to Worse – Iraqi PM Warns of ‘Regional War’, by Michael Krieger

Turkey’s parliament voted last week to extend its military presence in Iraq for a further year to take on what it called “terrorist organizations” – a likely reference to Kurdish rebels as well as Islamic State.In case you’re not paying attention, Turkey is now involved in military operations inside both Iraq and Syria.

Iraq’s parliament responded on Tuesday night by condemning the vote and calling for Turkey to pull its estimated 2,000 troops out of areas across northern Iraq.

“We have asked the Turkish side more than once not to intervene in Iraqi matters and I fear the Turkish adventure could turn into a regional war,” Abadi warned in comments broadcast on state TV on Wednesday.

“The Turkish leadership’s behavior is not acceptable and we don’t want to get into a military confrontation with Turkey.”

Turkey says its military is in Iraq at the invitation of Masoud Barzani, president of the Kurdish regional government, with which Ankara maintains solid ties. Most of the troops are at a base in Bashiqa, north of Mosul, where they are helping to train Iraqi Kurdish peshmerga and Sunni fighters. 

Turkey’s deputy prime minister, Numan Kurtulmus, said the deployment had become necessary after Islamic State’s seizure of Iraq’s second city, captured in 2014

“Neither Turkey’s presence in Bashiqa nor its operation right now in Syrian territory are aimed at occupying or interfering with the domestic affairs of these countries.”

Iraq’s central government in Baghdad says it never invited such a force and considers the Turkish troops occupiers.

Tensions between Iraq and Turkey have risen with expectations of an offensive by Iraq and U.S.-backed forces to retake Mosul.

An American Rwanda, by TL Davis

“All of the changes we are experiencing are leading up to something. The banking debacle being brewed by Deutsche Bank is just the catalyst that gets the genocide going. I wouldn’t imagine anything quite as orderly as the genocide of the Jews in Nazi Germany, I imagine it will be a little more like an American version of Rwanda, where the police and government officials merely take a step back while the slaughter engulfs the nation.”

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

What are the leftists after? From TL Davis at christianmerc.blogspot.com, via theburningplatform.com:

We are living on the edge of social destruction, a long-planned move of the leftists/Marxists, aided most deftly by the Obama Administration. The arrangements are unmistakable to the critical eye: the silence of the President during periods of race inspired riots as if to lend credibility to the cause; the open statements of the Attorney General supporting the prime actors in the riots; the invitation to the White House of those same actors.

The cause, by the way, is undefined and the actions taken irrational. Theoretically, the cause is the death of a black person, any black person, especially criminals, at the hands of police. So, is this meant to communicate to the rest of the nation that police should not shoot armed criminals based on race? If they should not shoot criminals, what need do they have…
