"To comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable"

Seattle Muslim Sentenced for Terrorism

 
Yup! We got us another one of the usual suspects (see Press Release below) and America is Free once again.
 
I do wish I could stand behind at least most of the busts the FBI makes on us Muzlem Trrrrsts, but try as I might, I can’t.
 
I don’t believe more than three or four of the dozens and dozens of Muslims charged or tried by the FBI, are guilty or, would have been worthy of notice had they been left to themselves. In every case, one or more informant is involved who has been under FBI pressure to find someone to hang or else; Some of them have been given $100,000 or more for “expenses” and their only job has been to infiltrate a Mosque congregation, find some disaffected Muslims (I am one of those disaffected ones) who is ticked off at the way our government has launched Operation Git-A-Muzlem. Once such people are found, it is only a matter of time to when the informant homes in on one or two impressionable goofs and amp them up to a point where it becomes a matter of honor and manhood, to take that next step to acquire a weapon that the informant is all-too ready to provide and the FBI gets their man…again!
 
The FBI says they don’t recruit informants, but I know for a fact that they do and they use all kinds of pressure tactics to force their target to become an informant.
The FBI says they only use those people as informants who have committed some crimes because, why not take advantage of a situation to find out more? True enough, but I would sure like to know when such informants were used in continuing operations against local Churches and Synagogues. I am willing to bet two informants to one, that if someone were planted in a Synagogue, we would soon enough be able to push some men over to saying they would very much like to blow up some Muzlems if it helps make Israel safer. Find me a right-wing Church and I’ll find you some potential trrrrsts there too.
 
The only problem is that planting such informants is likely to be a career-stopper for the poor FBI agent who takes such a step; it is NOT sexy to try and track trrrrsts among the Judeo-Christian Civilization.
 
The case regarding the Press Release below?
One more instance of a frame-up job where the officer in charge of the informant who got the Trrrrsts, felt he had to erase over four HUNDRED text messages, as did his informant. This is just what we know, what about all the other information that was cooked up that we do not know?
 
When the judge found out about the way this informant was handled he made some statements of reproof, but could not find himself to be outraged enough to dismiss the case, as he should have done.
 
As Muslims, we should not be surprised at such practices.
Our lawmakers have made it a matter of patriotic duty to attack Islam and Muslims wherever they can, using other fig-leaves, of course. They have passed laws against Islam and Muslims, they have made it easy to imprison forever or even torture Muslims, using the law or, other subterfuges. Our President has been given the authority to kill Muslim US citizens without ever feeling the need to offer evidence, to charge or even set up a sham kangaroo court like they did for the Gitmo prisoners. Our government has made it easier than sneezing, to kill as many non-citizen Muslims as they wish, whenever they wish and wherever they wish.
 
Why should the legalized lynching of a few Muzlems here or there, elicit even an American yawn?
 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Western District of Washington

SEATTLE MAN SENTENCED TO 18 YEARS IN PRISON FOR PLOT TO ATTACK SEATTLE MILITARY PROCESSING CENTER
Plotted to Attack Center When Maximum Number of High School Age Recruits and their Families were Inside

SEATTLE – A Seattle man was sentenced today to 18 years in prison in connection with the June 2011 plot to attack a military installation in Seattle, U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan announced. Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif, aka Joseph Anthony Davis, 34, pleaded guilty in December 2012 to conspiracy to murder officers and agents of the United States and conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction. Abdul-Latif planned to use grenades and machine guns to attack recruits at the Military Entrance Processing Center in a federal office complex in south Seattle. U.S. District Judge James L. Robart imposed ten years of supervised release saying this plot “could have done incredible harm if it had gone forward.”

“This defendant planned to attack a military center when there would be the largest possible gathering of new recruits and their families. He targeted young men and women solely because they wanted to serve our country. His goal: to inspire others with a message of hate,” said U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan. “His plot was disrupted by vigilance in our community and good work by law enforcement.

I commend the Seattle Police, and the FBI for their work, and thank the leaders of our Muslim communities who work tirelessly to ensure the acts of extremists are not used to condemn their faith.”

“Countless innocent people targeted by Mr. Abdul-Latif are safe thanks to the vigilance of Seattle’s Muslim community and the dedicated work of law enforcement partners,” said Laura M. Laughlin, Special Agent-in-Charge of the FBI Seattle office. “The plot may have been thwarted, but its mere existence and the extremist thinking behind it are despicable. I hope that Mr. Abdul-Latif uses his years in prison to reflect on what it means to be a true member of an American community, built on respect for all.”

“I am pleased with the outcome of this very important joint agency investigation. With support from the Muslim community and the diligent work of Seattle Police Detectives and our federal partners, a dangerous man will spend a long time behind bars and our community will be safer for it,” said Seattle Police Chief John Diaz.

The other defendant in the case, Walli Mujahidh, 33, of Los Angeles, is scheduled for sentencing on April 8, 2013.
Law enforcement first became aware of the plot when a citizen alerted them that he/she had been approached by Abdul-Latif about participating in the attack and supplying firearms to the conspirators. The person then agreed to work with law enforcement, which began monitoring Abdul-Latif and Mujahidh. Beginning in early June 2011, the conspirators were captured on audio and videotape discussing a violent assault on the Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS). The MEPS is where each branch of the military screens and processes enlistees.

In addition to housing many civilian and military employees, the building houses a federal daycare center.

In his plea agreement, Abdul-Latif admits that he agreed to carry out the planned attack and that he made plans for Mujahidh to travel to Seattle from Los Angeles to participate in the attack. Mujahidh arrived in Seattle on June 21, 2011. On that same day, during a meeting between Abdul-Latif, Mujahidh, and a person who was working with law enforcement, Abdul-Latif outlined the plan of attacking the MEPS with machine guns and grenades, and took steps to purchase weapons and further the plot. In accordance with the defendants’ plan, the next day the person working with police brought three machine guns to a meeting with Abdul-Latif and Mujahidh. The men were arrested after they took possession of the weapons, which had been rendered inoperable by law enforcement.

Prosecutors noted that a lengthy term was necessary to protect the public, and urged future monitoring by Federal Probation. “Abdul-Latif undertook his plot in furtherance of his long-standing and deeply felt radical beliefs. To this day, he has not disavowed the radical ideology that inspired his attack plot, nor has he expressed any meaningful remorse for his conduct,” prosecutors wrote in their sentencing memo.

The case was prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Washington, with assistance from the Counterterrorism Section of the Justice Department’s National Security Division. The investigation is being conducted by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, which has investigators from federal, state and local law enforcement, and the Seattle Police Department. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF) contributed significant expertise to this investigation.
