State Dept: No Active Al Qaeda, Hezbollah Terror Cells in Western Hemisphere

(image from article)

A new report on world international terrorism activities released by the State Department asserts that there were "no known operational cells" of Al Qaeda or Hezbollah in the Western Hemisphere during the year 2012. This is despite the report acknowledging Iran's increased presence in the hemisphere along with the country's "marked resurgence" of sponsored terrorism.

The State Department released the "Country Reports on Terrorism 2012" late last week which details the United States' assessment of terrorism and counter-terrorism activities in countries around the globe. The Department detailed Iran's "marked resurgence" of terrorism saying: .......

It all depends on what the meaning of “active” is?

Such a delusional statement would lead a reasonable person to question the real worth of the State Department. Hilary Clinton has rendered great harm and Kerry is too self centered and dopey to notice anything is wrong.

What bullcrap. We have hundreds, if not thousands of cells here in America, hiding in plain sight. Raid the stinking mosques and known terrorists’ homes and businesses. When they get their “go orders” from Iran, the “soft targets” in America will be obliterated. The Beslan School Massacre will become the “new normal”.

Shopping malls, all schools, local hospitals, day care, apartment complexes, VA hospitals, offices; it’ll be a bloodbath.

The same State Department that didn’t think security was a problem at Benghazi on 9/11/12 .... and we should believe anything they say why? SOS/Obama left Americans to die in Benghazi ... they’re doing the same thing in the U.S. with this claim.

“Is this someone’s idea of a joke? This is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard. The western hemisphere of where? Venus?”

This is as ridiculous as the Bush’s time CIA saying that Iran decided to scuttle their nuke program. My paraphrase.

Now the state department is the acting CIA! Not only speak for intelligence agencies, but also ACTING “militarily” like one!

Case in points, a few weeks ago, I read somewhere, possibly here on FR, that against the CIA objections, the State Department wanted to supply the “rebels” in Libya with stingers to get rid of Qaddafi “on the cheap.

The State dept. did what they wanted and it cost us a US ambassador who was trying to buy the stingers back.

I never thought that a diplomatic entity could overrule the CIA and by proxy, the military, and when it back fires as it did, they get away with it and perhaps the more civilian airliners shoot downs occur, the more is the chance that Hitlery will become president in 2016!

THAT, sounds ridiculous? Nope, the world is on it’s ears. Proof? The contemptible voters elected and reflected a PROVEN FAILURE, thus flipping the USA on the 0c0mmie’s jug ears!

Obama blessed all the radical Jihadist groups Bush had named as terrorists. Now they work for the government and get to change the Fed’s war on terror policy to target our Veterns and conservative Christians and constitutionalists/patriots. They get to watch our government sexually molest innocent Americans in our airports as a reslut of what Islamists did on 911. Bammy wants to give them the power of Sharia law where they can persecute those who “offend Islam.”

Obviously someone in the Big Zero Administration wants to pretend that terrorism is not a worry in the Western Hemisphere.

They probably got a book by some athlete on how to win by visualizing success. They were hoping that if they state affirmations and visualize that there are no terrorists, they will create an energy zone where there are no terrorists.

Sorry but this new-age stuff may work for sports and other things, but it doesn't work for terrorists.

Must have all went to Cuba after Hillary outed them.

http://usopenborders.com/2012/03/clinton-latin-american-drug-cartels-links-to-iran-hezbollah-a-concern/

Whoops. Dang! Bad timing. Her State Department claim of concern was made in March 2012. Well, maybe this announcement just rounded down to the entire year. After Hillary chased them to Cuba.

This link has a little more info about Hezbollah and the cartels but it is rather dated. It’s from December 2011.

It’s quite possible the DOJ active ban on truth program has caught on over at the State Department now whatshisname replaced Hillary.

How marvelous: State is making announcements which are utterly meaningless. No known terror cells could mean anything from no terror cells to thousands of terror cells in the context of a massive intelligence failure, or anything in between.

Back when the grown-ups were in charge, we had a SecDef who reminded us all

As we know, there are known knowns. There are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns. That is to say, we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don’t know we don’t know.

Hmmm, I have been assuming the woman beside Martin Richard was his mother but there was something nagging me that it wasn’t. See the long wavy brown haired woman next to him wearing sunglasses, a navy sweatshirt, dark shorts, white and blue striped socks and gray shoes. The backpack is right behind her. A bit over halfway down at your link, scroll down to the pic of Martin and then down to the next pic. There’s that same woman running in the street. She’s looking to her right and her foot seems to be starting to turn to the right. Now, who happens to be to the right? Why, it’s none other than white hat. Now, how did she just happen to have taken off running to be at the exact same location at the exact same time as the bombers? I don’t recall it being reported where Katherine was at the time. Katherine has long wavy brown hair, pale skin and thick legs like that woman.

Rumsfeld’s statement about known unknowns is profound and almost poetic. But he should have completed the matrix and included unknown knowns, the things we think we know but do not.

Actually, it was complete as he stated it: if one thinks one knows something which is, in fact, false, then the falsity of one’s “knowledge” is an unknown unknown.

SNIPPET: “Iran’s intelligence service includes 30,000 people who are engaged in covert and clandestine activities that range from spying to stealing technology to terrorist bombings and assassination, according to a Pentagon report.”

SNIPPET: ““MOIS provides financial, material, technological, or other support services to Hamas, Hezbollah, and al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), all designated terrorist organizations under U.S. Executive Order 13224,” the report said.

The spy service operates in all areas where Iran has interests, including Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Central Asia, Africa, Austria, Azerbaijan, Croatia, France, Georgia, Germany, Turkey, Britain, and the Americas, including the United States.

Iranian activities in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, and Venezuela have raised alarm among U.S. government officials.”

“State Department highlights Iran’s ‘marked resurgence’ of state-sponsored terrorism”

By THOMAS JOSCELYN
May 31, 2013

SNIPPET: “The State Department released its Country Reports on Terrorism 2012 yesterday. The year 2012 witnessed a “marked resurgence of Iran’s state sponsorship of terrorism, through its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Qods Force (IRGC-QF), its Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), and Tehran’s ally Hezballah,” State concluded. “Iran and Hezbollah’s terrorist activity has reached a tempo unseen since the 1990s, with attacks plotted in Southeast Asia, Europe, and Africa.””

SNIPPET: “The State Department’s report confirms, once again, that Iran sponsors terrorists and militants throughout the world.”
