ME Intelligence Update – Iraq’s ‘King of Clubs’

Editor’s Note – The following report was the subject of last night’s “Cowboy Logic” radio program on WDFP, and was hosted by Donna Fiducia and Don Neuen.

Their guests were the authors of the report and the show was riveting. You will learn things here that no outlet in the United States can provide.

Col. Najjar is a former Intelligence officer from Lebanon during the civil war there. He is now a long time US citizen and is a Lebanese Christian. He is also a member of the SUA Kitchen Cabinet and Col. Najjar is SUA’s International Intelligence Director.

As MG Vallely says, “I do not go anywhere overseas without Col. Najjar.” It was Col. Najjar who arranged the visit inside war torn Syria to the embattled city of Aleppo last year for himself and MG Vallely.

General Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri, the King of Clubs, is back and leading the Sunni Insurgency with the backing of the Iraqis national tribes, units of the Republican Guards and the Fedayeen of Saddam.

Both nationalistic and religious units are at odds with each other, two different trajectories – ISIS being led by Al Baghdadi wants the Caliphate, others (The Sunnis led by al-Douri) want the return of the old Iraq.

They are fighting together in the same trench and the same battle filed to remove Iran’s influence in the area and abolish the Iraqi/Maliki government in Baghdad.

Al-Douri first escaped out of Iraq in April 2003 and took refuge in Aleppo, Syria where he has planned and led the offensive/killing operations against the Shia and civilians throughout Iraq.

He has many dedicated officers and soldiers from the Saddam days and new recruits who make up his staff, field commanders and foot soldiers.

The precision and timely attack operations of the Iraqi tribes and former Iraqi army units is due to his planning and operational control. He also works closely with Saddam’s daughter.

Currently, they are conducting their operations from a command and control HQ from a clandestine location in Jordan.

Footnote: Now, after a decade as a fugitive, and believed by many to be dead, General Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri – one of the late Iraqi dictator’s most trusted Generals and confidants – has emerged as the spiritual and power figurehead of the movement dedicated to restoring Iraq’s current revolution against Iran’s take over.

The 70 year-old, on whose head the US set a $10 million bounty and who helped Saddam lead his 1968 coup, is leading a group of regime Sunni die-hards.

The action over the last 72 hours  was not an ISIS instigated show, rather ISIS jihadists are trying to climb on board and hijack the Iraq insurgency train towards a major Caliphate upsurge across the Middle East. What we are witnessing in Iraq is a major Rebellion in the move with more than 50% of the forces fighting are the Iraqi Sunni tribes allied with Duri.

Overwhelmingly drawn from the Sunni Muslim minority, their stated goal is to topple the Shia-dominated government of President Nouri-al Maliki, which they believe has been left vulnerable since the departure of US troops from Iraq 18 months ago and ensure that Iran will not dominate the region.

They are united against a common enemy for the moment, but there are strong tensions between the Iraqi loyalists’ tribes /al- Douri and ISIS and after the fall of Baghdad there will be a deterrence show between the two groups for command and control.

This is based on recent intelligence reports to the Middle East Liaison Team (MELT) from Stand Up America organization headed up by MG Paul Vallely and Col. Nagi Najjar.

Hezbollah terrorist absolved in Iraq – US failed foreign policy

Editor’s Note – Once again we want to post a story that points out how ludicrous it is that people think that Obama has one major asset that Romney does not have – foreign policy experience. Yes he does have more, the trouble is, its a long and consistent list of failures.

When this administration blew the negotiations to leave troops in Iraq, they forgot one guy, Ali Mussa Daqduq. A man responsible for five American deaths. Just how do you screw up that badly? Of course they spun that one to sound like it was what they were aiming for, due to his campaign promises, but once again, the truth is, the “keystone Kops” in the Obama administration got “punk’d” by Iraq. Now we see Iraq quickly melting into chaos and the hegemony of Iran.

Iraqi Court Absolves Terrorist Freed By U.S. After Killing Soldiers

Judicial Watch

Surprise, surprise the Hezbollah terrorist released by the Obama Administration to Iraq out of respect for the country’s sovereignty won’t make it to the U.S. to face trial for killing five American soldiers.

We all knew this would happen back in December when the commander-in-chief handed over the Lebanese militant, Ali Mussa Daqduq, to Iraqi officials. A mainstream newspaper presented it as a“dilemma” for the president as American troops prepared to exit Iraq. Daqduq had been in U.S. military custody in Iraq since 2007 for his involvement in a carefully orchestrated plot that killed, kidnapped and tortured American military officers.

The atrocities took place in a city called Karbala, south of Baghdad in early 2007. Around a dozen terrorists dressed in U.S. military uniforms opened fire on Americans after approaching a camp in five sports utility vehicles resembling U.S. transports. One U.S. soldier died at the scene and four others were kidnapped, tortured and executed. Daqduq, a Hezbollah commander, was the mastermind.

But President Obama didn’t want to remove the terrorist from Iraq without permission from the country, in order not to violate its sovereignty. He also refused to take Daqduq to the U.S. Naval base in Guantanamo Cuba, which houses other high-value terrorists, because the facility is an anathema in the Middle East and Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki would not approve the “unacceptable” Guantanamo option.

So Obama handed Daqduq over to the Iraqis even though several members of congress pointed out that it would be the same as freeing him. Apparently, Iraq pinky promised to hold him accountable for murdering our soldiers. No one, probably not even Obama, really believed that and this week a nationalnewswire story confirmed it.

It turns out that two Iraqi courts have found Daqduq not guilty of masterminding the 2007 raid on an American military base and just a few days ago the nation’s central criminal court ordered that he be freed immediately. As far as the Iraqis are concerned, the legal case against him is over. That’s why authorities there refused the Obama Administration’s joke of an extradition request.

This may lead some to wonder if the administration really thought Iraq ever even toyed with idea of extraditing Duqduq, who is considered a hero among Islamists? The official line is that the government believes the Hezbollah commander is a top threat to Americans in the Middle East, which is why the U.S. even bothered filing the delusional extradition request.

The Iraqi court’s decision ends the Obama Administration’s laughable, last-ditch efforts to prosecute Daqduq. A Pentagon spokesman said Daqduq “should be held accountable for his crimes” and that the U.S. “”will continue to work closely with the Iraqi government to explore all legal options to pursue justice in this case.” The first part sounds good, but the second part is a crock.
