In Case You’re Looking For Someone to Blame for ISIL

Abu Bakr al-BaghdadiRemember, we had the top ISIL leader under lock and key, until the seas stopped rising and the planet began to heal:

The leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams (ISIS,) Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was formerly held by the U.S. military at Camp Bucca in southern Iraq from 2005 to his release in 2009.

Hmmm. The US Department of Justice wanted page for Abu Bakr doesn’t mention that, to steal a construction from the Man Who Would Be King, but wound up as Secretary of State: we were for al-Baghdadi before we were against him. But now we’re definitely against him, to the tune of ten million smackers’ reward.

We have always been at war with Eastasia, brother.

Note that we’re all that against him, like we were in the bad old days of Cowboy Bush. We’re not offering the reward for the head of this clown, FOB Fallujah, in a cooler with some dry ice. Somewhere, old KGB officer Vladimir Vladimirovich is shaking his head at American amateurishness, remembering how his service solved the problem of jihadi kidnappings of a random Russian in Lebanon. (Messy KGB wet-work applied to random jihadi leaders. Message received, jihad out. The Russian captive was released with an apology). No, we’re looking for the guy so that Covington and Burling can pocket millions in Gulf Arab jihad money, to tie the US courts up with him wink-nod “pro bono”.

Yet we had the guy, perfectly neutralized in a small, uncomfortable cell. Hmmm. What happened in early 2009 that led to mass releases of terrorists? We seem to recall some calamity or other that gave rise to this.

Why such a dangerous man was slated for release in 2009, or who made the decision is not known. The Telegraph offers that “one possible explanation is that he was one of thousands of suspected insurgents granted amnesty as the US began its draw down in Iraq.”

In 2010, shortly after his release, al-Baghdadi was announced as a new al-Qaeda leader. When bin Laden was killed in 2011, Baghdadi pledged to revenge his death “with 100 terrorist attacks across Iraq” – but with al Qaeda leaders dropping like flies in Pakistan and Afghanistan, no one took him seriously.

Exercise for the reader: How many Italian POWs from the Desert Campaign were ordered released after Italy sued for peace in 1943? (Hint: it’s the number of White House officials who attended the state funeral of MG Greene. But they sent three to the funeral of the wannabe cop killer who started the Ferguson riots).

How many Japanese POWs from Guadalcanal were let go because the war had moved on to Iwo Jima?

But just about everybody we had in the bag on 20 Jan 09 is back in the jihad business today (if they weren’t so incredibly unlucky as to get whacked in the interim).

The country’s in the very best of hands.

    Maybe It Was Bush’s Fault (pat.pend.) for making Abu D’oh “Al” Sadbaggy all bitter and clingy. Consolation….if and when this latest Mr Tinpot Madhat Middleastern nutjob croaks, another will fill in the vacancy before the old one is cold.

    Back when US of A was busy bombing Kosovo and Serbia to stop the rather harsh Serb anti-partisan actions, an uncle of mine told me the top of US gov’t was both corrupt and stupid.

    I didn’t believe him then, but after seeing how the Bush administration handled Iraq and then the anointed one’s admin’s numerous clusterfucks… I can no longer say I consider that statement erroneous.

    Shrub the Lesser’s administration at least sometimes did something right.

    Hey I thought this site wasn’t about politics :D

    Don’t get me wrong, this is a great article, but if you’re going to leave that disclaimer at the top of your blog I’ma haveta jerk your chain.

    What’s to blame? IF you want to build a caliphate it takes leadership and sycophants. O has destroyed more of the Middle East than both Bushies together. But Comrade O is making an omelet and breaking a few eggs is necessary. Progs never ever stop destroying and never ever make things work unless it’s destructive. Welcome to the NWO and the USSA

    A fine English muffin and a better cup of coffee, good stuff sent from a friend working out of Bogota, and I just become weak – so I’ll go with Visceral Vlad (Putin, The Impaler, take your pick), just because, ya know? Full body pikes, on display, including anyone in the room when they’re grabbed. Because all that international dialogue has worked so well. There… feel better now. Not politics, just business. ;)

    Im firmly convinced that at least a few of the jihadi pricks we released were headed for a free border crossing courtesy of the Holder’s DoJ. I could be wrong but the black hearted scum running this country from bottom up have no interest in anything good for our country and it already fits his MO.
    In all of history nothing but misery pain and suffering has come from ignorance and poverty all over the world and for these generations its the plague of islam. Either we cleanse the earth of this plague or it will see us and ours buried in it.
    As for who to blame.. I blame ourselves for tolerating substandard treasonous activities from our employees. A rose is a rose, a turd is a turd and shit always floats to the top.. even in dirty water.
    Pardon my french.
