U.S. citizen carries out suicide bombing in Syria
CBS News ^ | May 28, 2014 | CBS News

An American citizen linked to al Qaeda terrorists has carried out a suicide bombing in Syria, CBS News has learned.

The picture on radical Islamic websites shows a smiling bearded man holding a cat, but U.S. officials believe the man, who called himself Abu Hurayra al-Amriki is the first American suicide bomber to die fighting for al Qaeda in Syria.

Al Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra recently released a photo showing four jihadis. The fighter on the right, wearing a suicide vest, appears to be Abu Hurayra.

The terror group claims he was killed Sunday in an attack in northern Syria. An al Qaeda video released Monday shows a truck being loaded with bombs and a subsequent explosion at a government complex.

Al Qaeda had promised an attack from an American. Just last week, an English-speaking man with his face blurred called on his brothers to defend Islam.

U.S. officials say they have identified Abu Hurayra's real name; it has not been released. But he was not alone. The FBI says several dozen Americans have gone to Syria to join the fighting.

The very same people that Obama wants to arm with American weapons.

As for these American jihadis, just wait until they return home with their newly acquired death skills...

This is who we supported in Libya and now who we support in Syria. It is absolute TREASON.

At least he won’t be coming back.
Now deport the rest of his family.

If he carried out a “suicide bombing”, what makes you think he will come back to America unless they find all the pieces.

Sounds like he gave up his citizenship as part of his actions.

Tea party member, I am sure. Because those are the people that Homeland Security tells us we should watch out for.

I have zero proble with American Jihadiis going overseas to wage war in defense of their faith. Better to have them do it there than here ...

I have to agree. I wish every single last one of them would go blow themselves up somewhere in the Arab peninsula.

The disturbing part is that there's young "American" Al-Qaeda jihadis. Gosh, I thought Obama said they were through.

The Boston Bombers were citizens. In fact, I think one got his citizenship the day Benghazi went haywire.

Not all of his “Amriki” jihad buddies will carry out suicide bombings, and once Assad finally crushes the “rebels,” I guarantee that Kerry’s State Department will welcome them home with open arms.

US espionage and diplomatic operations have always been controlled by globalist financial elites through a powerful network of well-placed minions.

Example:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sullivan_%26_Cromwell

Globalist financial elites have always been working towards eventual disarmament of the American citizenry.

This is required for their plan to implement more of a totalitarian police state in America, as they have implemented in communist and socialist countries.

Part of the disarmament plan is state spying on American citizens, including machine-based automated spying, which is being implemented now.

In order to transition the population to acceptance of the automated police state spying on citizens, the American public must be conditioned to accept it over a number of years in a step-by-step program.

Thus the financial elites engineered the Snowden releases to publish much of what is being done currently; the types and magnitude of public reaction can then be measured to see how far along the plan is to being able to be imposed.

If the elites push to far too fast they can have a political setback in public opinion, so they continue a cycle of push a little, then test the response.

The revelations about NSA over the past 10-15 years reveal that the financial elites continue to make progress in their spy-machinery implementation during both Republican and Democrat administrations.

Whichever party is in power, they’ve still got roughly have the population by default supporting everything they implement, as most people support their party without question.

Terrorists killing each other is good news for us.

On the bright side, if these American Muslims are suicide mission practitioners, they won’t be returning to the U.S.

Looks like he blew himself up before he could reproduce. That improves the gene pool.

Shame on him, but you know what?

There is no longer a very keen sense of What It Is to be an American.

Our borders are out of control and many, many times the people guarding are borders are the very most casual type of “American” —merely their passport color changed and in some cases they scowl and speak only halting English.

The job is just a meal ticket, like very much these days.

It’s the same with our religion —you simply attend, sometimes sing, and over time you get the basic message that ALL choices and behavior are essentially OK.

But very many people do not believe that —they think some things Are Not Okay and they end up seeking out some entity that externally affirms that internal feeling.

For some it’s environmentalism, for others it’s UFO’s, and for a few it’s freaking Islam.

Again, shame on him, but the greater question is WHY are our own people and many in Europe turning to this kind of cr*p…?

We don’t have the confidence of our convictions because WE DO NOT HAVE ANY CONVICTIONS.

Some things are not ok, and very many people are not Americans, and they should be treated politely, but they should be treated as non-Americans.

"I can confirm that this individual was a US citizen involved in a suicide bombing in Syria," state department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

President Obama will honor him of course. Where's McCain on this?
