Video: Hagel’s Announcement Of Bergdahl’s Release Met With Silence At Bagram AF, Afghanistan

June 5, 2014 at 10:13 am

You could have heard a pin drop.

(CBS) –Questions persisted, too, about the circumstances of Bergdahl’s 2009 capture. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel declined to comment on earlier reports that the sergeant had walked away from his unit, disillusioned with the war. Such matters “will be dealt with later,” Hagel said.

Hagel, visiting troops in Afghanistan, was met with silence when he told a group of them in a Bagram Air Field hangar: “This is a happy day. We got one of our own back.” It was unclear whether the absence of cheers and applause came from a reluctance to display emotion in front of the Pentagon chief or from any doubts among the troops about Bergdahl.

Watch for it around the 2 minute mark:

H/T The Mental Recession who adds:

When Hagel is announced as the speaker, the troops respond with hearty applause, making it unlikely that the group was unwilling to applaud in front of the Pentagon chief, as the CBS report suggests.

Exactly.

Obama Admin. Allowed Muslim Imam to Damn Fallen SEAL Team 6 Heroes at Bagram AFB Funeral Service [Video & Transcript] –UPDATED

May 9, 2013 at 6:03 pm

Via Gateway Pundit:

Today three families of Navy SEAL Team VI special forces servicemen, along with one family of an Army National Guardsman, appeared at a press conference to disclose never before revealed information about how and why their sons along with 26 others died in a fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011. This was just months after the successful raid on the Bin Laden compound in Pakistan.

At the press conference today the families released video on how military brass, while prohibiting any mention of a Judeo-Christian God, invited a Muslim cleric to the funeral for the fallen Navy SEAL Team VI heroes. This cleric disparaged in Arabic the memory of these servicemen by damning them as infidels to Allah. A video of the Muslim cleric’s “prayer” was shown this morning with a certified translation.

This will break your heart.
From the funeral services at Bagram Air Force Base

Translated transcript of the muslim prayer curse as recited by the cleric:

Amen. I shelter in Allah from the devil who has been cast with stones.
In the name of Allah the merciful forgiver.
The companions of “THE FIRE”
(The sinners and infidels who are fodder for the hell fire)
ARE NOT EQUAL WITH the companions of heaven.
The companions of heaven (Muslims) are the WINNERS.
Had he sent this Koran to the mountain, you would have seen the mountain prostrated in fear of Allah.
(Mocking the GOD of Moses)
Such examples are what we present to the people, so that they would think.
(repent and convert to Islam)
Blessings are to your God (Allah) the God of glory and what they describe.
And peace be upon the messengers (prophets) and thanks be to Allah the lord of both universes (mankind and Jinn).

The Right Scoop verifies the translation with renowned Islam expert Walid Shoebat:

I emailed Walid Shoebat to see if the translators got it it correct and he verified that indeed they did. He said there are more appropriate verses in the Koran that deal with the ‘Kuffar’ (disbeliever), so the verses used by the Muslim cleric were an insult.

NAVY SEAL TEAM VI FAMILIES TO REVEAL GOVERNMENT’S CULPABILITY IN DEATH OF THEIR SONS IN FATAL HELICOPTER CRASH IN AFGHANISTAN FOLLOWING SUCCESSFUL RAID ON BIN LADEN’S COMPOUND

(Washington, D.C.). Three families of Navy SEAL Team VI special forces servicemen, along with one family of an Army National Guardsman, will appear at a press conference on May 9, 2013, to disclose never before revealed information about how and why their sons along with 26 others died in a fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011, just a few months after the successful raid on the compound of Osama Bin Laden that resulted in the master terrorist’s death.

Accompanying the families of these dead Navy SEAL Team VI special operations servicemen will be retired military experts verifying their accounts of how and why the government is as much responsible for the deaths of their sons as is the Taliban.

The areas of inquiry at the press conference will include but not be limited to:

1. How President Obama and Vice President Biden, having disclosed on May 4, 2011, that Navy Seal Team VI carried out the successful raid on Bin Laden’s compound resulting in the master terrorist’s death, put a retaliatory target on the backs of the fallen heroes.

2. How and why high-level military officials sent these Navy SEAL Team VI heroes into battle without special operations aviation and proper air support.

3. How and why middle-level military brass carries out too many ill-prepared missions to boost their standing with top-level military brass and the Commander-in-Chief in order that they can be promoted.

4. How the military restricts special operations servicemen and others from engaging in timely return fire when fired upon by the Taliban and other terrorist groups and interests, thus jeopardizing the servicemen’s lives.

5. How and why the denial of requested pre-assault fire may have contributed to the shoot down of the Navy SEAL Team VI helicopter and the death of these special operations servicemen.

6. How Afghani forces accompanying the Navy SEAL Team VI servicemen on the helicopter were not
properly vetted and how they possibly disclosed classified information to the Taliban about the mission, resulting in the shoot down of the helicopter.

7. How military brass, while prohibiting any mention of a Judeo-Christian God, invited a Muslim cleric to the funeral for the fallen Navy SEAL Team VI heroes who disparaged in Arabic the memory of these servicemen by damning them as infidels to Allah. A video of the Muslim cleric’s “prayer” will be shown with a certified translation.

Watch these Navy SEAL Team VI families and other family members as they reveal the Obama Administrations culpability in death of their sons in the fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan following the successful raid on bin Laden’s compound. This is a powerful and riveting briefing that included some of America’s most significant military leaders.

The Blaze:

What has been causing even more of a stir is an Islamic prayer that was said, in addition to another prayer, over the bodies in a ceremony in Afghanistan before they were brought home. TheBlaze reported in a separate article that the families believe the Arabic prayer was disrespectful and damning the soldiers to hell, while other experts say the prayer can’t easily be labeled a deliberate slap in the face.

“Our sons were subjected to a final act of betrayal by their government,” Karen Vaughn told TheBlaze of the prayer being read.

While at the same time, Islam expert Stephen Caughlin gave a bit more background on the prayer, which is common at Muslim funerals:

“Even a standard prayer is actually a little bit offensive because … it comes from a book of the Koran or a chapter of the Koran that’s basically about defeating the infidels. And [in exploring the issue] I basically showed that there were two verses quoted in the funeral rite.

If you back it up one verse, it gives you the greater context of the fact that the people who are not Muslim are condemned to hell, by those prayers and so I basically showed that. So my point isn’t that the imam was deliberately inflammatory — my point was that it’s inflammatory even when they’re not trying to, because it goes to the issue of the fundamental and irreconcilable difference between Islamic orientation and a non-Muslim orientation.”

More at The Blaze.

Update: Via The Right Scoop (same link as above)

***UPDATED: Walid Shoebat emails to say this is not a song or a prayer, but a Koranic recitation:

This is terrible. In other words, this Imam was saying that these soldiers are “going to hell” and their dead are going to “heaven”. Thats what this looks like.

By the way, this was not a “song” or a “prayer”, it was recitation from the Quran.

The PRAYER was actually at THE END, after the recitation was completed in which the Imam stops the Tajweed (chanting) of the Quran. THEN he starts praying for ONLY ONE DEAD PERSON, the MUSLIM.

He says “Allah have mercy on HIS soul and HOUSE HIM (only him, the Muslim) in the beautiful heaven”.

In other words, the prayer was ONLY for the MUSLIM and NOT for the NON-MUSLIM.

THIS CAN NOT STAND

Mother Of Fallen SEAL Obama White House Leaks “Put a Target” On Navy SEALs Who Killed Osama

October 9, 2012 at 11:43 am

How dare they!

YouTube Preview Image

(Beltway Confidential)–President Obama’s team “put a target” on the backs of the Navy SEALs who killed Osama bin Laden, says Karen Vaughn in a video that suggests her son died three months later as a result of White House national security leaks.

“How dare they?” Mrs. Vaughn asks. “They put a target on my son’s back and even on my back. But a little over 90 days later, my son was dead.” Aaron Vaughn and 21 other Navy SEALs, “most of whom belonged to Team 6, the unit whose members were involved in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden,” according to ABC, died in Afghanistan when a helicopter he was riding on was shot down.

The video, released by the conservative Veterans for a Strong America, shows Vice President Joe Biden talking about the raid during a public event and Defense Secretary Robert Gates complaining that an agreement to keep the raid details secret “fell apart” as the result of such comments.

“Aaron called me,” Mrs. Vaughn says, referring to her son, Special Operations Chief Aaron Vaughn, who was killed on August 6, 2011. “He said, ‘Mom, you need to wipe your social media clean. Get rid of everything, any reference to me or my buddies, because there is chatter and all of our lives are possibly in danger, including yours.’”

Veterans for a Strong America, which previously released a video faulting Obama for politicizing the killing of bin Laden, encouraged voters to support the Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan ticket at the end of the video.

Obama Campaigns in Afghanistan Taliban Retaliates –Seven Dead Afghans

May 2, 2012 at 9:39 am

It never crossed O’s mind, that his dragging around (figuratively speaking, that is) Osama’s dead body as a campaign prop in Afghanistan would inflame the Taliban?

A French soldier part of the NATO forces walks on debris after the compound was attacked by militants in Kabul, Afghanistan, Wednesday, May 2, 2012. A suicide car bomber and Taliban militants disguised in burqas attacked a compound housing hundreds of foreigners in the Afghan capital on Wednesday, officials and witnesses said. The Taliban said the attack was a response to President Barack Obama's surprise visit just hours earlier. (AP Photo/Ahmad Jamshid)

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - The Taliban struck back less than two hours after President Barack Obama left Afghanistan on Wednesday, targeting a foreigners’ housing compound with a suicide car bomb and militants disguised as women in an assault that killed at least seven people.
……
The U.S. president, who is in the midst of a re-election campaign, touted the Navy SEAL raid that killed bin Laden a year ago Wednesday, noting that the operation was launched from a base in Afghanistan.
……
The compound, which is known as Green Village, houses hundreds of international contractors, diplomats and aid workers in eastern Kabul. It also was the target of anti-foreigner protests following the burning of Qurans at a U.S. base in February. At that time, violent protests raged outside, but the angry crowds did not breach the compound’s defenses.

The compound’s main gate was destroyed, with the wreckage of the suicide bomber’s car sitting in front, and the road running past it was littered with shoes, books, school supplies and the bloody ID card of a student from a nearby school.
……
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attack.

“This was a message to Obama that those are not real Afghans that are signing documents about this country,” Mujahid said. “The real Afghan nation are those people that are not letting foreign invaders stay in this country or disrespect the dignity of our country.”

Afghan school children made up the the majority of the wounded:

A local witness said the attackers were disguised in burqas — the head-to-toe robes worn by conservative Afghan women.

“A vehicle stopped here and six people wearing burqas entered the alley carrying black bags in their hands. When they entered the alley, there was an explosion,” said Abdul Manan.

At least seven people were killed, according to the Interior Ministry. It also said 17 were wounded, mostly Afghan children on their way to school.

Not once did Obama use the word ‘victory‘, during his Afghanistan campaign speech.

Obama gives hugs and kisses to the Islamic Taliban savages.

In his speech on Tuesday, President Obama said eradicating “every vestige of the Taliban” would be too costly. Doing so “would require many more years, many more dollars, and most importantly, many more American lives,” Obama said. “Our goal is to destroy al Qaeda, and we are on a path to do exactly that,” he said.

The president also said his administration is trying to make peace with the Taliban:

“In coordination with the Afghan government, my administration has been in direct discussions with the Taliban,” he said. “We’ve made it clear that they can be a part of this future if they break with al Qaeda, renounce violence and abide by Afghan laws.” He said “many members of the Taliban” are interested in reconciliation.

It will be a cold day in hell, the day the Taliban renounces violence, Obama Chamberlain. And any talk of reconciliation is mere pretense. You are being played for the ignorant, incompetent fool that you are.

Afghan President Karzai “Taliban Photos Disgusting” “Painful Experience”

April 19, 2012 at 10:56 am

Forget the fact that Allah’s dogs of war don’t even treat their own bodies with respect.

(Telegraph) –The president immediately used the pictures to press for greater Afghan  sovereignty, saying the only way to stop a repeat of such “painful experiences” was for his forces to take control of their own country.

American officials have ordered a full investigation after the release of graphic pictures showing men from the 82nd Airborne Division, together with members of the Afghan police, smiling for the camera while posing with corpses.

A total of 18 pictures, taken in 2010, were passed to the Los Angeles Times by an anonymous soldier, who said he wanted to illustrate what he called a breakdown in leadership and discipline.

“It is such a disgusting act to take photos with body parts and then share it with others,” Mr Karzai said in a statement.

Hey Karzai! Let’s drill down shall we? Your brethren, Taliban Islamic Jihadists who commit acts of suicide ‘homicide bombing’ are far more than “disgusting”, they are immoral, barbaric sub-humans, following Allah FUBAR’s lead. Read your Quran.

And I’d suggest that you ask their victims how “painful” their experience was, but they are –dead.

Mr Karzai’s statement said: “The only way to put an end to such painful experiences is through an accelerated and full transition of security responsibilities to Afghan forces.” American defence officials anxious that the photographs might provoke revenge attacks reportedly spent weeks trying to dissuade the paper from publishing them.

“The only way to put an end to such painful experiences is” to eradicate Islam.

We would not have any boots on the ground, if it wasn’t for the evil that is Islam. The photos would not exist without the existence of Islamic jihadists. Neither would this photo (warning graphic). And there are plenty more photos like that one, as you very well know.

Chew on that, you self-righteous Islamic scum.

Photo & Video: Islamic Jihadist Mohammad Merah Of Toulouse –DEAD Brother Abdelkader Merah Arrested [Update: Head Shot Kill, Jihadist Group Claims Responsibility]

March 22, 2012 at 9:56 am

An Islamic hound of hell, courtesy of 'Mohammed the First', is now DEAD.

Allah FUBAR! Nothing pleases me more, than to wake to the news of a filthy Islamic jiahadists death. Especially one by the name of –Mohammad.

(Daily Mail) The Toulouse terrorist burst out of his flat’s bathroom ‘shooting insanely’ with a cache of weapons at police before leaping to his death from a window.

In scenes reminiscent of a Hollywood film, the 32-hour siege at the Al Qaeda terrorist’s Toulouse home ended after the vicious gunfight – injuring two officers, one who is in a serious condition.

Mohammad Merah, 23, unleashed round after round from an automatic weapon after gas cannisters were thrown into his apartment and police stormed in.

Sustained gunfire and loud explosions could be heard echoing around the neighbourhood from around 11.30am.

As the cross-fire continued, dozens of emergency workers standing outside beside ambulances and fire engines held their ears because of the noise.
……
Anti-terrorism chief Francois Molins said Merah had trained with Al Qaeda terrorists in the Pakistani militant stronghold of Waziristan, and had been planning to kill two soldiers and a policeman.

Merah killed a Rabbi and three pupils at a Jewish school in the city on Monday, and assassinated three soldiers last week. He filmed all his crimes and had pledged to post footage on the internet.

Jihadi death porn, sick bastards.

The house, in north Toulouse, is just a few miles from the Ozar Hatorah School where Mehra killed Rabbi Jonathan Sandler, 30, his two young sons, three-year-old Gavriel and six-year-old Aryeh, and headmaster’s daughter Miriam Monsonego, eight.

All were shot in the head at such close range that the gunfire burned the surrounding skin.

CCTV cameras at the school showed that the gunman recorded his shooting spree with a small video camera around his neck.

Last week Merah shot three soldiers, all of North African or Caribbean origin, in the same area in two separate attacks.

He carried the same weapons and rode a black scooter to and from the attack at 8am on Monday. The fanatic is understood to have had contacts with fellow North African extremists living in Britain.
……
There had been a four-day gap between each of his three attacks – leading to suspicions there would be a fourth on Friday.

Update:

(Salt Lake Tribune -AP) –French President Nicolas Sarkozy, speaking in Paris, said an investigation was under way to see if Merah, a French citizen of Algerian descent who claimed links to al-Qaida, had any accomplices. His mother and a brother were detained a day ago by police after the mother’s computer became a critical link in tracking Merah down. The brother Abdelkader had already been linked to Iraqi Islamist networks.

Prosecutor Francois Molins said Merah burst out of his bathroom when police gingerly entered his apartment Thursday morning, wildly firing his gun about 30 times before jumping out an apartment window.

“(He)launches an assault, charging police through the apartment and firing at them with a Colt .45, continuing to advance, armed and firing, as he jumps from the balcony,” Molins said.

Merah fired “until he was hit by a retaliatory shot from the RAID (elite police unit), which felled him with a bullet to the head,” Molins said.

Jihadist group claims tie to French killings

The SITE Intelligence Group is reporting that a lesser-known jihadist group is claiming responsibility for three shootings in southern France that left seven people dead.

The reported claim Thursday by Jund al-Khilafah, a group that has also claimed past attacks in Afghanistan and Kazakhstan, comes after Mohamed Merah — the leading suspect — died after a firefight with French police.

SITE, which monitors jihadist messages on the Internet, said the group issued a statement in jihadist forums saying “Yusuf of France” led an attack Monday, the day of shootings that killed a rabbi and three Jewish children in Toulouse.

Pat Condell: Tell The Truth About Islam

March 21, 2012 at 11:49 am

“It isn’t pretty, but it’s still the truth.”

patcondell

Partial transcript:

People have learned as they have learned everywhere in the West, that [Islam] is far more than just a religion. It is an invasive political supremacist ideology, that exploits religious freedom and cultural guilt to impose itself with constant demands for special treatment. Always backed by the implicit threat of conflict and violence.

In other words through cultural terrorism. So whether it’s prayer rooms crow barred into the workplace where they don’t belong, Muslims allowed to pray in the streets and block traffic, medical staff allowed to ignore hygiene rules, the police turning a blind eye to genital mutilation, universities letting jihadists recruit on campus, sharia courts dehumanizing women or the imposition of halal only food on the entire population without their knowledge or consent. Society it seems must always bow to the unreasonable demands of Islam. And anyone who dares to object is either vilified as racist or openly threatened with violence.

This is what the media should be saying about Islam if journalists had the guts to do their job and tell the truth. Because it is the truth and everybody knows it’s the truth.
……
Thanks to unwanted mass Islamic immigration there are parts of Europe where today where if you make it known that you are gay or Jewish for that matter, you are virtually asking to be physically attacked. It’s an indisputable fact that the more Muslims there are in a society, (not Asians –Muslims) the less safe it is likely to be for gay people or Jews or women or anyone attempting to exercise their fundamental right to freedom speech.

UK: Vandals Desecrated Memorial Garden Dedicated to British Troops Who Died In Afghanistan

March 11, 2012 at 4:19 pm

Likely suspects, adherents of the ‘Religion of Perpetual Intolerance’.

When there is no respect shown for the sanctity of life, there should never be expectations of respect for the fallen.

The memorial plaque dedicated to Fallen British soldiers before vandals shattered it.

(Daily Mail) –A memorial garden for British troops killed in Afghanistan has been desecrated by vandals who struck at a military chapel in Essex.

A plaque in honour of seven soldiers who lost their lives in 2007 was smashed to pieces and a wooden cross destroyed.

The shattered memorial plaque.

News of the attack comes after The Mail on Sunday last week revealed how an armed mob in Libya had filmed themselves desecrating the war graves of more than 150 British servicemen at Benghazi.

The latest outrage happened in the memorial garden in the grounds of the chapel of The Royal Anglian Regiment in Warley, Brentwood.

The garden was built in honour of nine soldiers from the regiment who died during the same tour five years ago. Lance Corporal Darren George, a member of the regiment who was 22 when he became the first British casualty of the Afghan war in April 2002, has a plaque devoted to him inside the chapel.
……
On Wednesday there was a stark reminder of the sacrifices still being made by British troops when six servicemen were killed by a bomb while out on patrol in Afghanistan, bringing the total number of those who have lost their lives in the troubled country to 404.
……
‘It was probably teenagers who don’t understand exactly what they’ve done, but in the week of the worst enemy attack on British troops since it began you think that people need to be educated about what our troops are sacrificing  over there.’

Teenagers, yeah that’s who it was teenagers. Not a mob of foaming at the mouth Islamic rage boys. Perish the thought!

The vandalism, a year after the RAF helped to save the people of Libya’s second city from Colonel Gaddafi’s tanks, caused widespread revulsion.

In case you haven’t seen it, the Iron Burka has video of the Libyan Muslims destroying the British and Commonwealth War Cemetery in Benghazi.

“Afghan Muslim Mujahid” [JIHAD] Nation’s Website Reports NATO Promise To Allow Quran Burning Trial

February 28, 2012 at 9:27 pm

Pardon my unladylike language but…

If this is true, the lousy son of a bitch who resides in our White House, has a LOT of explaining to do. HOW DARE HE!


Joint Statement by the Delegations Assigned to Probe Bagram Incident

In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate

Following the insulting and shameful act of burning Quran in Bagram airbase that injured the religious sentiments of the Islamic world and particularly of the Afghan Muslim nation, two delegations comprising of representatives from government, the National Council of Ulemma and the National Assembly were assigned and dispatched to investigate the circumstances and causes that have led to the inhumane incident.

The delegations, while deeply touched by the religious sentiments shown by the Afghan Muslim and Mujahid [JIHAD] nation, inform our citizens of the following:

1. In view of the particular security situation in the country, we call on all our Muslim citizens of Afghanistan to exercise self-restraint and extra vigilance in dealing with the issue and avoid resorting to protests and demonstrations that may provide ground for the enemy to take advantage of the situation.

2. After the shameful incident by the US soldiers stationed in Bagram, senior NATO and American officials expressed their deep apologies to the Muslim nation of Afghanistan and assured that such incidents will not happen again.

3. NATO officials promised to meet Afghan nation’s demand of bringing to justice, through an open trial, those responsible for the incident and it was agreed that the perpetrators of the crime be brought to justice as soon as possible.

4. The assigned delegations demand from the government of Afghanistan to take over from the Americans the authority of the Bagram prison so no such incidents can recur and calls on the US government to fully and comprehensively cooperate to this end.

5. The delegations also want from the Afghan government to formally praise those brave Afghan army soldiers and all others who showed feelings against the disrespectful act by preventing more religious books and Quran copies from burning, so that the pure Muslim sentiments of our honored Mujahid [JIHAD] nation can remain alive.

For western civilization to survive, Islam MUST die.
