Who is Driving Obama's Honduran Policy

The Obama Administration made serious mistakes in its handling of the crisis in Honduras where it supports the return of the deposed president, Mel Zelaya.

The Administration categorized the removal of Zelaya as a coup when, in fact, the Honduran military has had no role in governing the country. The Honduran Congress and Supreme Court abided by their Constitution and rule of law and ousted Zelaya because he had violated the law. As a result, the crisis in Honduras today is almost unmanageable. So what does this behavior reveal about Mr. Obama's respect for the separation of powers, as Mary Anastasia O' Grady from the Wall Street Journal accurately points out, that he would instruct Secretary of State Clinton to punish an independent court because it did not issue the ruling he wanted?

Is the administration forcing Honduras to violate its own laws?

It astonishes legal experts and independent observers that President Obama, Secretary of State Clinton and their advisors have chosen to ignore a serious factual report filed at the Library of Congress by the Congressional Research Service (CRS) that states
"Available sources indicate that the (Honduran) judicial and legislative branches applied constitutional and statutory law in the case against President Zelaya in a manner that was judged by the Honduran authorities from both branches of the government to be in accordance with the Honduran legal system,"
writes CRS senior foreign law specialist Norma C. Gutierrez in her report.

Why is this administration siding with Zelaya and his main supporter, Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez? Chavez is known to be hostile towards the U.S while working closely with Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is on the brink of obtaining a nuclear weapon and has established a bank in Venezuela with Chavez to avoid the sanctions already imposed against Iranian financial institutions responsible for transferring funds to Tehran's nuclear program. Actually, the Obama Administration and the Chavez regime sponsored a UN resolution that condemned the government of Honduras for legally removing Chavez's puppet "Mel" Zelaya.

Since assuming the presidency in January of 2009, the Obama White House mainly follows the expertise of Mr. Daniel Restrepo on issues pertaining to Latin America.

Dan Restrepo and The Center for American Progress

Prior to moving to the National Security Council, Dan Restrepo was the director of the Americas Project at the Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank, whose President and Chief Executive Officer is John Podesta, who served as chief of staff to then President Bill Clinton. This think tank has become so influential making personnel appointments in the Obama Administration that Time Magazine recently declared "there is no group in Washington with more influence at this moment in history."

One of CAP's main contributors is billionaire George Soros.

In fact, some independent groups that are more transparent, such as the Sunlight Foundation and the Campaign Legal Center, criticize the Center's failure to disclose its contributors, particularly since it is so influential in appointments to the Obama administration.

Why are Obama and Restrepo so eager to return Zelaya to power despite the overwhelming evidence against him?

Despite the fact that what happened in Honduras was NOT a coup and that the actions taken against Zelaya were in accordance with the rule of law after he violated the Constitution by illegally trying to perpetuate himself in power with the help of Hugo Chavez, the Obama administration is sticking to its coup theory. It continues misrepresenting the facts with the help of some friendly media outlets. In addition, it has decided to ignore evidence provided by Honduras' Foreign Minister Enrique Ortez who has charged that as President, Zelaya was involved with drug trafficking from Venezuela into the United States:
"Every night, three or four Venezuelan-registered planes land without the permission of appropriate authorities and bring thousands of pounds...and packages of money that are the fruit of drug trafficking," he said. "We have proof of all of this. Neighboring governments have it. The DEA has it," adding that "the drugs arrive in Honduras from Venezuela, which has become a main drug transit center, and increasingly in speedboats from Colombia," according to the Key West, Florida-based Joint Interagency Task Force-South, which coordinates drug interdiction in the region. U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration spokesman Rusty Payne in Washington said he could neither confirm nor deny the DEA investigation.

It is precisely this information involving Zelaya and drugs that could give us the key answer to what is truly going on behind U.S. policy regarding Honduras.

An extremely influential figure in Restrepo's life is Center for American Progress' strongman George Soros, who is an advocate for the legalization of illicit drugs. In fact, Soros is a member of the board of the "Drug Policy Alliance," a non-profit organization with the principal goal of ending the American "War on Drugs." As a side - note, George Soros financially contributed to the political campaign of Barack Obama, together with four other family members - daughter Jennifer, sons Jonathan and Robert and wife Susan. He has also financially supported John Kerry, Howard Dean, Hillary Clinton, Tom Daschle, Charles Schumer, Joseph Biden, Patrick Leahy and Barbara Boxer. Soros also funded Al Gore for President.
Imagine that, he must know Democrats are motivated by
"non-profits"... I wonder if Soros has a relationship with Maurice Strong?

Detroit: Center of Recession and Revolution

Mosques & Islamic Centers serve as Jihad training centers

By Douglas J. Hagmann,
Director of Northeast Intelligence Network

29 October 2009: A 45 page federal complaint unsealed Wednesday (PDF), the raid on a Detroit warehouse and Detroit area residences, the shootout between mosque leader Luqman Ameen ABDULLAH, a/k/a Christopher THOMAS and law enforcement officials should be sufficient verification of the validity of our previously published investigative and surveillance findings that Islamic terror training is taking place on America soil.

On Wednesday, federal, state and local law enforcement officials raided a suburban Detroit warehouse and at least three Detroit area residences after a federal complaint was unsealed charging eleven-(11) individuals with a variety of crimes relating to Islamic terrorism. During the raid at the warehouse, ABDULLAH, 53, a “homegrown” Black Muslim terrorist and mosque leader fired on authorities as they executed the arrest warrant at that location. Before being killed by authorities, ABDULLAH shot and killed a K-9 dog.

Authorities state that six men are in custody while others remain at large. ABDULLAH, who converted to Islam while in prison, was the Imam of the Masjid Al-Haqq (mosque) in Detroit. The spiritual leader of the group is Jamil Abdullah Al-AMIN, formerly known as H. Rap BROWN, a prominent Black Panther in the late 1960s and early 1970s. BROWN is currently incarcerated for the murder of two police officers in Georgia.

American streets will become the new Islamic Jihad battleground

The information contained within the federal complaint against the Detroit suspects is clear: Islamists in the US are advocating the spread of Islam through the use of violent jihad, and they are utilizing mosques and Islamic centers as their training grounds. The Northeast Intelligence Network has warned about this very issue, and even provided evidence of such activities.

On May 27, 2005, investigators from the Northeast Intelligence Network issued a fifteen-(15) page report titled Islamic Jihad Training in America. That report (PDF) specifically details paramilitary style training taking place at urban locations, including mosques and Islamic centers, in preparation for waging “jihad” or holy war by Islamists on the streets of America. The findings in this report are not merely speculation or commentary, but evidence based on extensive field investigation and surveillance performed by professional investigators.

On February 12, 2006 and updated later that summer, the Northeast Intelligence Network published a thirty-eight-(38) page report titled Exposing Terrorists in our Midst (PDF) detailing the paramilitary training at Muslim encampments as identified through on-site investigation and surveillance conducted by investigators of this agency. Again, the findings in this report are based on field investigation performed by professional investigators. So effective was this report that this investigator earned the wrath of a top Pakistani terrorist whose followers occupy several Islamic enclaves in North America. Following the publication of this report, Pakistani terror kingpin Shiek Mubarek Ali Gilani issued a religious statement and threatened this investigator/author in a rambling diatribe on a website maintained by his followers.

The Detroit raid serves to verify that there is a growing army of Islamic jihad “warriors” in our midst, operating behind the walls of an untold number of mosques and Islamic centers. Their seditious activity is protected by the careful exploitation of our democratic laws and the religious freedom that we offer. Their activities are permitted to continue for numerous reasons, including but not limited to the blackmail of predatory litigation against those who dare to expose the threat, the insidious imposition of political correctness and multiculturalism, and the failure to understand that the “religion” of Islam is inextricably linked to an archaic and oppressive political ideology that is completely incompatible with a democratic nation and a free society.

The upcoming offensive

While scanning the various comments about the Detroit raid, I found a comment made on a conservative forum by someone who described the groups of individuals arrested as “basically nothing more than a gang of criminals wearing Halloween costume African outfits.” Unfortunately, that statement reflects the perilous lack of understanding that will result in blood being shed on the streets of America.

The individuals who are preparing for jihad love death more than we, as Americans love life. As illustrated on various Islamic terrorist message sites, the Islamists living in America keenly sense our current malaise about the threat posed by Islam, our political ambiguity regarding the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, our self-flagellation over the treatment and ultimate adjudication of enemy combatants, and the current political agenda coming directly from the White House. They are more empowered today than ever before, and feel insulated from any meaningful intervention as they continue to use US real estate as forward bases for their political and religious takeover of the United States.

Our articles published on May 3, 2007, titled Jihad coming to the streets of America and its follow-up dated May 17, 2007 are more relevant today than ever before. On Wednesday in Detroit, we saw the manifestation of events we warned about over two years ago:

“We’re talking about professional Muslim men, mosque leaders, leaders within our communities who are actually helping young men train for the eventuality of urban combat. They know what they are doing, yet they lie right to our faces about these activities- and we’re told by our supervisors that we have to accept what they tell us at face value when they know damn well they are lying.”

UPDATE: 2 Suspects Missing
WXYZ: ABC Action News 7
October 30, 2009


Two suspects are still missing in connection with the FBI raids that were conducted in metro Detroit Wednesday.

Meanwhile, police have captured another suspect in the wake of the raids.

The FBI announced that Mujahid Carswell, also known as Mujahid Abdullah, was taken into custody by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police at around 1:00 p.m. Thursday. He was captured in Windsor and taken into custody without incident. He is being detained by the Canadian Border Patrol on immigration violations.

The two missing suspects are identified as Yassir Ali Khan and Muahammad Alsahli (Philestine). The men are believed to be armed and dangerous.

The men are believed to be part of a group known as "Ummah," or brotherhood. They are a group of mostly African-American men who converted to Islam. Officials say many of them converted while in prison.

The Ummah was originally headed by Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rapp Brown. He is serving life in prison at Colorado's supermax facility for the murder of two police officers in Georgia. He was also reportedly part of the "Black Panther" group back in the 1960s and '70s.

Most of the suspects surrendered peacefully during yesterday's raid at a warehouse at Michigan Avenue and Miller. The alleged ringleader, Luqman Ameen Abdullah, pulled a gun and shot at police. He was shot and killed by FBI agents. An FBI dog was also killed in the exchange of gunfire.

In all, nine suspects are in custody and another two are on the loose. The suspects are facing federal charges for conspiracy to commit a number of federal crimes including theft from interstate shipments, mail fraud, tampering with a motor vehicle and illegal possession and sale of firearms.

The suspects who were arrested yesterday are identified as Muhammad Salaam, Adam Ibraheem, Ali Raqib, Acie Pusha, Abdul Saboor, Abdullah Beard and Abdul Saboor. An eigth suspect, Franklin Williams, was already in custody at the time of the raid.

If you have information on the whereabouts of the two remaining suspects, you're asked to contact the FBI at (313) 965-2323

Iran - Deceptions and Strategy

Sphere: Related Content

Despite evidence the Iranians have been hiding their nuclear pursuits and lying about it, strategy to counter the threat posed to the gulf region is slow in coming. The recent missile tests are illustrative of Iranian deception. The missiles test fired during the recent maneuvers reached a range of 3000 kilometers as opposed to the announced range of the missile. A shorter range was announced to hide the fact that it could reach several European countries with a nuclear warhead. Their new missile is a two-stage solid fuel missile which increases the range and reliability of the weapon. The missile is produced by the Industrial Group of Aerospace in the Khojair region east of Tehma. Other solid fuel missiles are produced by the Bakeri Industrial Group. Revolutionary Guards Corps Air Force commander, Pasdar Salami falsely claimed that these missiles are no threat to Iran’s neighbors. Then he said,
“the message of this maneuver for those greedy countries that intend to evoke horror is that we are able to immediately, decisively and strongly react and answer back the evil intentions of the enemy.”

There should be no doubt that Iran continues to work towards full nuclear delivery capability. It should also be apparent that Iran continues to lie about the extent of its nuclear and associated programs. Should Iran obtain first strike capability, all of the Middle East and much of Southern and Central Europe will be at risk. Stratfor has reported on war games to be held in Israel next week. This will 'make waves' throughout the entire gulf region.
American warships and transport aircraft have been arriving in Israel ahead of a major ballistic missile defense exercise slated for the week of Oct. 12. The exercise will not only be noteworthy for its size and complexity, but for the integration and interoperability it hopes to achieve. In addition, it comes amidst a mounting crisis with Iran and will be watched closely by all sides. Military exercises like Juniper Cobra do not take place in a vacuum. In 2007, Juniper Cobra was held in March and at that point, the 2009 exercises were also scheduled for spring. It seems that the schedule changed and regardless of the reason, the timing of these exercises will ratchet up already sky-high tensions between the West and Iran.
They will be testing and implementing new Ballistic Missile Defenses.

Strategy may take shape following these maneuvers to ensure oil supply. The Strait of Hormuz, facilitates movement of 90 percent of the Persian Gulf’s oil exports (40 percent of the global seaborne oil trade) as well as all of the gulf’s liquefied natural gas exports. At a time when the world economies are reeling from the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, war there presents a very serious threat. Despite disincentives for Iran to try and close the strait, it can not be ruled out. With so much at stake risks are very high.

Factor in the possibility Iran has 2 more nuclear scientists missing and you have a cauldron about to boil over...
