Pentagon Not Targeting Islamic State Training Camps

crew-22312Well here is a big time shocker to no one who has followed Obama and his fake war upon Islam.

Of course he will not target where the Islamic terrorists are located.

He can’t bring himself to target his Muslim Brothers. 

One more reason, as we spill blood and treasure that this 50% honky must be impeach or bound over on the more serious charge of treason.

When fighting  “Overseas contingency operations,” as he must call them instead of wars, our enemies keep winning and we keep losing.


H/T D.C. Clothesline


The Pentagon has not conducted airstrikes against an estimated 60 Islamic State (IS) training camps that are supplying thousands of fighters each month to the terror group, according to defense and intelligence officials.

War strategy based on myths and lies is a recipe for crushing failure.

Obama’s war strategy is to convince Americans that the Islamic State is not Islamic. (Like that would work even among the dumbest democrats.)

That the quranic texts and teachings that jihadists invoke are not quranic.

My concern and those of my colleagues is what happens when American Muslims and other foreign fighters eventually return to their home countries in Europe and North America to carry out jihad terror attacks.

“If we know the location of these camps, and the president wants to destroy ISIS, why are the camps still functioning?”

U.S. intelligence analysts keep saying that the American-led campaign against ISIS isn’t going so well. Their bosses keep telling them to think again about those conclusions.

Senior military and intelligence officials have inappropriately pressured U.S. terrorism analysts to alter their assessments about the strength of the self-proclaimed Islamic State, three sources familiar with the matter told The Daily Beast.

Analysts have been pushed to portray the group as weaker than the analysts believe it actually is, according to these sources, and to paint an overly rosy picture about how well the U.S.-led effort to defeat the group is going.

Reports that have been deemed too pessimistic about the efficacy of the American-led campaign, or that have questioned whether a U.S.-trained Iraqi military can ultimately defeat ISIS, have been sent back down through the chain of command or haven’t been shared with senior policymakers, several analysts alleged.

  • Why hasn’t President Obama authorized the bombing of ISIS training camps?
  • Why didn’t President Obama authorize support when our consulate was under terrorist attack in Benghazi?
  • Why didn’t President Obama back President Sisi against the terrorist group, the Muslim Brotherhood?
  • Why did President Obama halt Israeli arms transfer to Nigeria to fight Boko Haram?
  • Why did President Obama continue to arm and aid “rebels” (“moderate al Qaeda”) in Syria when those arms would going straight into the hands of the Islamic State?

All of the above questions may be answered with a single word, “Incompetence.”

It’s all of a piece.

“The failure to target the training camps with U.S. and allied airstrikes is raising questions among some defense and intelligence officials about the commitment of President Obama and his senior aides to the current anti-IS strategy of degrading and ultimately destroying the terror group.”

No airstrikes against 60 camps producing 1,000 fighters monthly (Updated)

The Pentagon has not conducted airstrikes against an estimated 60 Islamic State (IS) training camps that are supplying thousands of fighters each month to the terror group, according to defense and intelligence officials.

The camps are spread throughout Islamic State-controlled areas of Iraq and Syria and are off limits in the U.S.-led international bombing campaign because of concerns about collateral damage, said officials familiar with planning and execution of the yearlong bombing campaign.

Additionally, the IS (also known as ISIS or ISIL) camps have been so successful that Islamic State leaders are considering expanding the camps to Libya and Yemen. Both states have become largely ungoverned areas in recent years.

The failure to target the training camps with U.S. and allied airstrikes is raising questions among some defense and intelligence officials about the commitment of President Obama and his senior aides to the current anti-IS strategy of degrading and ultimately destroying the terror group.

“If we know the location of these camps, and the president wants to destroy ISIS, why are the camps still functioning?” one official critical of the policy asked.

The camps are regarded by U.S. intelligence analysts as a key element in the terror group’s successes in holding and taking new territory. The main benefit of the training camps is that they are providing a continuous supply of new fighters.

An additional worry of intelligence analysts is that some of the foreign fighters being trained in the camps will eventually return to their home countries in Europe and North America to carry out terror attacks.

A White House spokesman declined to comment on the failure to bomb the terror camps and referred questions to the Pentagon.

Pentagon spokesman Maj. Roger M. Cabiness declined to say why no training camps have been bombed. “I am not going to be able to go into detail about our targeting process,” he said.

Cabiness said the U.S.-led coalition has “hit ISIL [an alternative abbreviation for the Islamic State] with more than 6,000 airstrikes.”

“The coalition has also taken out thousands of fighting positions, tanks, vehicles, bomb factories, and training camps,” he said. “We have also stuck their leadership, including most recently on Aug. 18 when a U.S. military airstrike removed Fadhil Ahmad al-Hayali, also known as Hajji Mutazz, the second in command of the terrorist group, from the battlefield.”

Efforts also are being taken to disrupt IS finances and “make it more difficult for the group to attract new foreign fighters,” Cabiness said in an email.

A Central Command spokesman also declined to provide details of what he said were “operational engagements” against IS training camps.

“Once a target is identified as performing a hostile act, or is part of an obvious hostile force, a training camp for example, we prosecute that target in accordance with the coalition rules of engagement and the law of armed conflict,” the spokesman said.

According to the defense and intelligence officials, one reason the training camps have been off limits is that political leaders in the White House and Pentagon fear hitting them will cause collateral damage. Some of the camps are located near civilian facilities and there are concerns that casualties will inspire more jihadists to join the group.

However, military officials have argued that unless the training camps are knocked out, IS will continue to gain ground and recruit and train more fighters for its operations.

Disclosure that the IS training camps are effectively off limits to the bombing campaign comes as intelligence officials in the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and U.S. Central Command, which is in charge of the conflict, have alleged that senior U.S. officials skewed intelligence reports indicating the U.S. strategy against IS is not working or has been less effective than officials have claimed in public.

The Islamic State controls large parts of Syria and Iraq and has attracted tens of thousands of jihadists in both countries and from abroad. The exact number of fighters is not known but intelligence estimates have indicated the numbers have increased over the past year.

The military campaign, known as Operation Inherent Resolve, appears to be floundering despite a yearlong campaign of airstrikes and military training programs aimed to bolstering Iraqi military forces.

A review of Central Command reports on airstrikes since last year reveals that no attacks were carried out against training camps.

Targets instead included Islamic State vehicles, buildings, tactical units, arms caches, fighting positions, snipers, excavators, mortar and machine gun positions, bunkers, and bomb factories.

The risk-averse nature of the airstrike campaign was highlighted last month by Brig. Gen. Thomas Weidley, chief of staff for what the military calls Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve.

“The coalition continues to use air power responsibly,” Weidley said July 1. “Highly precise deliveries, detailed weaponeering, in-depth target development, collateral damage mitigation, and maximized effects on Daesh, are characteristics of coalition airstrike operation in Iraq and Syria.”

Daesh is another name for the Islamic State.

“The coalition targeting process minimizes collateral damage and maximizes precise effects on Daesh,” Weidley said earlier. “Air crews are making smart decisions and applying tactical patience every day.”

Other coalition spokesman have indicated that targeting has been limited to reaction strikes against operational groups of IS fighters. “When Daesh terrorists expose themselves and their equipment, we will strike them,” Col. Wayne Marotto said May 27.

The military website Long War Journal published a map showing 52 IS training camps and noted that some may no longer be operating because of the U.S.-led bombing campaign.

Bill Roggio, Long War Journal managing editor, said the Islamic State’s training camps are a direct threat to the region and U.S. national security.

“While the vast majority of trainees have been used to fight in local insurgencies, which should be viewed as a threat. Historically jihadist groups have selected a small number of fighters going through their camps to conduct attacks against the West. The Islamic State is most certainly following this model,” he said.

According the map, among the locations in Iraq and Syria where IS is operating training camps are Mosul, Raqqah, Nenewa, Kobane, Aleppo, Fallujah, and Baiji.

The group MEMRI obtained a video of an IS training camp in Nenewa Province, Iraq, dated Oct. 1, 2014.

The video shows a desert outpost with tan tents and around 100 fighters who take part in hand-to-hand combat exercises, weapons training, and religious indoctrination.

Aymenn Jawad Al-Tamimi, an analyst with the Middle East Forum, in June translated details of IS training purportedly obtained from a manual produced by a pro-IS operative in Mosul named Omar Fawaz.

Among those involved in ideological training for IS jihadists in Iraq is Bahraini cleric Turki Binali, who wrote an unofficial biography of IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Al-Tamimi stated in a blog post June 24.

According to a document thought to be written by Fawaz, training differs for native Iraqis and Syrians as opposed to foreign fighters, who generally are less experienced militarily than the regional trainees.

The document also reveals IS plans to export military manpower abroad, including Libya.

“Sessions for the muhajireen [foreign fighters] brothers last 90 days or more, and at the highest level deal with organization, determination, and intelligence operation, including training on heavy weaponry in addition to comprehensive Sharia sessions and multiple tests,” according to a translation of the document. “Sessions for the Ansar from the people of Iraq and al-Sham range between 30 to 50 days.”

The process begins with an application form and questionnaire regarding education, skills, viewpoints, and whether their backgrounds can be verified.

The training then includes physical fitness, martial arts practice, weapons training, and ideological indoctrination.

After a week of training, jihadists with special abilities are selected and placed in units. The units include special forces, air defense, sniper units, a “caliphate army,” an “army of adversity,” and administrative units for those capable of using electronic devices and accounting.

“The rest are distributed in fronts and camps after the end of the military camp training according to where they are needed,” the report said, noting that all graduates are tested in Sharia at the conclusion of their training.

The New York Times reported Tuesday that the Pentagon inspector general is investigating allegations that military officials doctored intelligence reports in an attempt to present more optimistic accounts of the U.S. military’s efforts in the conflict.

The probe was triggered by a DIA analyst who stated that Central Command officials were improperly rewriting intelligence assessments prepared for policy makers, including President Obama.

The Daily Beast reported Wednesday that senior military and intelligence officials inappropriately pressured U.S. terrorism analysts to alter estimates of the strength of the Islamic State to portray the group as weaker.

Central Command, on its website, stated that in the year since the Iraq operation began on Aug. 7, 2014, a total of 6,419 air strikes were carried out.
Targets damaged or destroyed include 119 tanks, 340 Humvees, 510 staging areas, 3,262 buildings, 2,577 fighting positions, 196 oil infrastructure targets, and 3,680 “other” targets not further identified.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    Its Islam, Stupid; not incompetence. Obamination is a GdM. A ‘slime’s a ‘slime for alla’ that.
    Winning wars involves killing enemy combatants and destroying their military assets. War is Hell, they ignited it, let them suffer the burns.

    Allocate one Daisy Cutter or MOAB to each of those know training camps. After each bombing propound the questions: Where is the victory Allah promised you? Why did Allah fail to protect your companions? Is it insufficient piety on your part or is Allah an impotent idol?

    Collateral damage be damned. Those are Muslims, not innocent civilians. They want us dead or enslaved.

    There must be no sanctuaries. Hit the enemy where he is, whrever he masses; whenever he moves. Without hesitation; without remorse.


  3. dajjal says:

    Obamination is one of them, not one of us. Expecting him to seek victory is a fool’s errand. He wants Islam to triumph over Dar ul-Harb.

    Impeachment is a political act. Conviction requires a 2/3 Senate majority. There are too few honest Senators. Obamination gets off Scott Free.

    Be careful when voting and make no mistakes. Especially in the primaries!!

    • PRIMARY elections are SO MUCH MORE IMPORTANT than General Elections! That is where we (hopefully!) weed out the BAD GUYS! Most people just do not get it, don’t bother to vote primaries, so your vote counts 10x more in a primary!


      • dajjal says:

        Primaries dictate our general election choices. The Establishment promoted a large field in hopes that Weed would monopolize the fundraising and his opponents would split the vote so thin that he would win with a plurality, without the base.

        The opportunistic narcissist is a diversion taking our attention from the genuile Conservative candidates. Keep yer eyes on the prize!

      Obama and his entire cast of commiel


  4. Dave the Differentator says:

    The much bigger picture is that there are Muslim Training Camps here in America. The FBI and Obama must take action or a Militia needs to be formed and these enemies of America stopped here in America.

    The Quran is very specific about preaching the destruction of Non-believer sand defines all of America as non-believers.

    America needs to send these enemy combatants back to where they came from.

    There are over 30 such ISIS or Muslim training camps right now in America.


  5. JCscuba says:

    No doubt about it Dave, if Obama had his way the Caliphate would be established in Washington D.C. and he would become the life time personification.


  6. Pamela says:

    Could it be that were not hitting these camps because our duplicitous government brought them into existence in the first place?


    • JCscuba says:

      That would be a safe bet to determined if and when we find out the facts. I for one believe you Pamela, I love your thought process and of course your brain.


      • dajjal says:

        We aided Mujahideen against the Commies in Afghanistan. We exhibited weakness when attacked. We founded the Democracy Project which blossomed into Arab Spring.

        We elected Farter, Bush, Sl;ick, Shrub & Obamination.
