Guilty: North Carolina Jihadists who targeted Marine Corps wives and children

Examiner.com

Penned by Timothy Whiteman

In Federal Court in New Bern, NC today, three would-be Islamist terrorists were found guilty of a slew of terrorism-related charges in a planned attack on unsuspecting wives and children of Marine Corps personnel residing on the sprawling Marine base in Quantico, Virginia.
Ziyad Yaghi, 23; Hysen Sherifi, 27; and Mohammad Omar Aly Hassan, 24 all stood before Her Honor U.S. District Judge Louise Flanagan as they had their convictions and sentences publically read to them.
The Associated Press, via FederalNewsRadio.com, is reporting that;
  • Yaghi was convicted of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorism and conspiracy to carry out attacks overseas, and was sentenced to almost 32 years in prison.
  • Sherifi was convicted of both crimes, two counts of firearms possession, and conspiracy to kill federal officers or employees for plotting the Quantico attack. He was sentenced to 45 years in prison.
  • Hassan was convicted of providing material support to terrorists, and received a 15 year sentence.
Ringleader Daniel Patrick Boyd, who now goes by the name of Safallah, Arabic for “Sword of God,” has already plead guilty and is awaiting sentence.
Two of Boyd’s sons have already plead guilty to similar charges and were sentenced to eight years and nine years in prison.
Tale Of The Tape…
As previously reported, Boyd was recorded by an undercover informant bragging about how easy it would be to get on base.
Boyd’s bravado shone through when he was taped stating;
“My father was an officer. What will they say, their hero’s son cutting their head off?”
As caught on tape concerning possible targets;
“The generals’ wives, they’re jogging. Their children are playing.”

Boyd was also recorded expressing his admiration for dead al-Qaeda ex-leader Usama bin-Laden, as well as understanding clearly orders via the internet he received from jihadist leaders overseas;

“Hit everything you can that hurt America and the Jew.”

Media and Obama Administration Reserve Harsher Treatment for U.S. Soldiers than Taliban

Big Peace

Marines urinating on dead Taliban, throwing a puppy off a cliff, Soldiers beating a sheep to death, prisoner abuse in Abu Ghraib, taking body parts as war trophies, etc., etc. To see the coverage of American soldiers in the Middle East, you’d think this was the norm for our men in uniform.

I am not making excuses for any of it; the Marines need to be punished, but I hope it won’t end up being a court-martial. I want to bring attention to the fact that the whole world comes down on America when these things happen. Our own government and mainstream media “deplore” it. When you Google “US deplores Marines” you will find 672,000 results. Much of that is duplicated when searching for “US deplores Army” with 1,530,000 results. However when I searched for “Marines urinating on Taliban” there were 37,900,000 results. Now you can add this post to that list.

Yet for all this heat and light about American misbehavior, not much is said when our enemies blow up innocent men, women, and children, behead and torture anyone they capture (and by torture, I don’t just mean waterboarding), shoot down MEDEVAC helicopters, use suicide murderers to kill and maim scores of Afghans at a wedding, drag bodies through the streets, burn, dismember, and hang them from a bridge and celebrate the events; then torture and murder a pregnant woman, and have no regard for the Geneva Convention, because they they take hostages, not prisoners, and the list goes on and on and on.

Certainly, what some of our Marines and Soldiers have done is deplorable, but it pales in comparison to what our enemies have done in the current conflict. And yet, our government and media are treating them with greater respect than our troops.  Read the rest here.

Biography of U.S. Marine Sgt Smith

By U.S. Marine Sgt Smith

(Picture of Sgt Smith on a mission)

Some information for everybody about myself. I write here (on Pat Dollards website) as SGT SMITH, talk in the chat room during the BTR Jihadikiller hour shows as Smitty. I’ve made a couple appearances on the show calling in. This is to let you know who I am, a little bit of what I’ve done; and why I choose to do what I do.

When I was a Junior in high school, I watched as our country came under attack from cowards. I remember that day as everybody does. My deciding point for joining the military came later that day. My father is a firefighter and that evening, there was a memorial service for all of those emergency responders who had lost their lives earlier that day. I sat in a pew next to my mother as I watched the line of firefighters; who I had grown up with being my big brothers, walk down the aisle with their black mourning bands on their badges. I watched as every one of them lost their composure and started to cry. It was at that exact moment that I was young enough to do something, and that I needed to. October of 2002 I found myself at MEPS in Kansas City volunteering for the Marine Corps.

Bouhammer: “When the line is crossed”

December 12th, 2008 Bouhammer

There are lines that can be crossed. There are times when someone can go too far in their comments, even when they are trying to be funny. I understand satire and I love it….most of the time. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am not one that is easily offended. In fact you can say whatever you want about me or to me; I really don’t care. What I will not stand for is you saying anything mean or hateful about someone that I care for or love that will hurt them or disrespect them. Like I said, about me…BRING IT! About someone I care about, don’t even go there.

I love my family and I love and care for my dearest friends. I care for soldiers, and when I say soldiers I use that as a general term referring to all service-members in any branch. I am a 1SG, which means looking after and caring for soldiers is my main priority in my military life.

I have had several of my own soldiers (that reported to me) wounded in combat and I was there in the hospital visiting with them and trying to lift their spirits (even kidnapping one out of the hospital and taking him to a gentleman’s club). I have seen my soldiers suffer, and I have seen the families of my soldiers worry and cry over their loved ones.

Last year I was privileged enough to visit Walker Reed Medical Center and The Fisher House while on The Sandbox book tour in Washington DC. Garry Trudeau, David Stanford, Owen Powell, his wife and I were lucky enough to meet some true warriors (who were mostly in wheel chairs and missing limbs), talk with them and have dinner with them and their families. These young men were very awe-inspiring to see them suffer the one wound that most soldiers fear more than anything else (losing a limb and being mangled for life, and still keeping a positive outlook on life. We also had the opportunity to tour the new Amputee center and see all of the ways that Walter Reed doctors and nurses are helping our wounded rehabilitate. In fact the still picture below in the video is in that Center and I have been in that exact room.

I walked away from the hospital grounds that night very humbled and damn proud to be a soldier.

I wrote all of that so you know where I am coming from, and so you would know why I am so pissed at The Onion. I like The Onion normally and I try to grab a copy whenever I can for me to read and for my son becuase he loves it. I can laugh at a lot of stuff, but there are limits.

What I am referring to is the video below: go here to view the video.

Now if you are as upset as I am after watching that video, you may be asking yourself “What can I do about this Bouhammer?”  Well Bouhammer has the answer for you. Why not email the participating entities and let them know how disturbed you are with the disrespect and disgraceful way that they represented out wounded warriors.

RCT-1, Team 2 takes Turkey Bowl at Camp Ramadi

One Tough Marine

Boots on the Ground

by Chuck Holton

November 17, 2008

They should have killed him while they had the chance.

Marine Corporal Garrett Jones is back in combat, and he’s mad as…well, you get the picture.

While on patrol with his unit, the 2/7 Marine Regiment in Iraq a little over a year ago, Cpl Jones remembers a flash and a cloud of smoke. He was thrown through the air into a sewage canal. After that, things got fuzzy. When he awoke, a chaplain informed him he’d lost his leg above the knee. Jones recalls saying, “I hear they make really good prosthetics.”

Seventeen surgeries and a whole lot of physical therapy now behind him, the tough young corporal is back in battle with his buddies – this time in Afghanistan. He’s one of a growing number of amputees who refuse to allow the loss of a limb to stop them from serving. And Jones recuperated in record time – a little under nine months after his injury, he was training to return to his unit. To do so, he had to prove himself all over again, going through all the same pre-deployment training as the others.

This is, after all, the Marine Corps. They don’t play wait-up.

“My leg popped off a couple of times in the humvee scenario and once when I was leaving a range,” Jones said. “I thought it was funny because ‘How many guys walk around with combat loads and have a leg fall off?’ I still did it to prove that I could deploy as an amputee.”

It’s that kind of spirit that enables him to endure the brutal operational tempo and primitive living conditions that his unit must endure in the Helmand province of southern Afghanistan. And being the first above-the-knee amputee to return to combat with his unit makes him a literal walking legend with his peers.

Jones recently submitted his paperwork to reenlist for another stint with the unit he loves. He also plans to represent the Marine corps this winter in another amazing display of toughness – a national snowboarding competition.

“I love being with the guys, the same people. I really do,” Jones said. “If it wasn’t for the guys in this unit, I wouldn’t be here. It’s an honor to serve with them and be in a place where many Marines don’t get a chance to go.”
