    Looks like the Russian WITCH HUNTS are coming to an end.

    On the eve of disgraced FBI director James Comey testifying before Congress, he released a detailed statement cleaning President Trump of the FALSE accusations that he “obstructed justice” by asking Comey to halt the investigation into General Michael Flynn.

    At the center of Flynn’s investigation was a December phone call between Flynn and the Russian Ambassador.

    After an intense investigation, General Flynn has been cleared of wrongdoing in that instance.

  6. Former Gitmo Captive on Saudi Payroll Arrested in French ISIS Cell

    Surprise, surprise, another inmate released from the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba has been arrested for reengaging in terrorism. His name is Sabir Mahfouz Lahmar and his Department of Defense (DOD) file says he has links to “multiple terrorist plots” and as a member of the Algerian Armed Islamic Group (GIA) plotted with Al Qaeda to attack the United States Embassy in Sarajevo.

    “Detainee advocated hostilities against US forces and the international community in Bosnia, and is linked to multiple terrorist plots and criminal related activity,” according to Lahmar’s DOD file. “Detainee had intentions to travel to Afghanistan and Iran, and is reported as doing so prior to his capture. Detainee has demonstrated a commitment to jihad, and would likely engage in anti-US activities if released.” Lahmar ended up at Gitmo in 2002 because the Algerian government refused to take him into custody after Bosnian authorities exhausted the legal limits for detention. The Pentagon recommended continued detention and determined that he was a high risk that posed a threat to the U.S., its interests and allies. Lahmar was also labeled a “high threat” from a detention perspective and of high intelligence value.

    Also of note in the DOD file is that Lahmar was on Saudi Arabia’s payroll as an employee of the Saudi High Commission for Relief (SHCR), a non-governmental organization (NGO). He was arrested and convicted in 1997 for assaulting an American Citizen in Bosnia but was released, “after the SHCR intervened on his behalf,” the military file states. “After his release, detainee returned to work for the SHCR in Sarajevo.” Authorities in Croatia believe Lahmar was involved in the 1997 bombings in Travnik and Mostar and that he served in the el-Mujahid Brigade conducting training for acts of terrorism in the 1990s. Other reports link Lahmar to car theft and document forgery and indicate he’s wanted in Belgium and France for his involvement in violent activities, the military file says.

    Despite his disturbing Pentagon document, the Obama administration released Lahmar from the top security compound at the U.S. Naval base in southeast Cuba in 2009 after France agreed to take him. This week he was arrested in Bordeaux as part of a terrorist cell that operated a recruiting network for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). A British newspaper report says Lahmar was one of six people—four men and two women—captured as part of an aggressive crackdown on a jihadist recruiting network in the European nation that’s been rocked by multiple terrorist attacks in recent years. Just a few years ago a former Gitmo captive, 46-year-old Moroccan Lahcen Ikassrien, was arrested in Spain for operating a sophisticated recruitment network for the Syrian and Iraqi-based terror group known as Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

  8. Attack of Paris: Farid Ikken, the improbable “radicalization” of a journalist from Bejaïa
    Investigation into the attack on a police officer committed Tuesday in Paris progresses in France. The assailant was identified as Farid Ikken. In his studio in Cergy (Val d’Oise) in the Paris suburbs, the investigators found, according to French media, a video in which he lends allegiance to Daech. At the time of the attack, he had mentioned the situation in Syria.
    Farid Ikken received a PhD in journalism. Yesterday, his supervisor said he was stunned. He evokes a man “sweet as a lamb”. “He was a thousand leagues away from all the Islamist ideals of Western detestation,” he added.
    In Bejaïa and Akbou, in his native region, the news also stunned those who know him. Among them, his nephew Sofiane Ikken, attorney. It was he who informed the family yesterday. “I received a phone call from a relative who confirmed that it was him. So I informed his family. ”
    It tells the story of a man whom nothing predestined to become a terrorist day of Daech. “He was against Daech. He even told me that his chief Al Baghdadi was a creation of the West. He did not believe Daech at all, but he was very sensitive to the situation in Syria, “he said.
    After a bachelor’s degree in translation at the beginning of the 2000s in Algiers, Farid Ikken joined Sweden where he did a master’s degree in journalism before going to work in Norway. “As he mastered Arabic, his Norwegian company sent him to France where he stayed and worked for two years,” says his nephew. He was married to a Swede and is now divorced.
    Farid Ikken returned to Algeria in 2011, at the time of the events of the Arab Spring. “He was against the regime. He said the situation could not last like this. He said, ‘It’s not normal that we have to live abroad instead of being at home’. But it was someone open, a democrat, “adds his nephew.
    A few months after his return to Algeria, he settled in the city of Bejaïa where he created an advertising agency and a regional information site Bejaïa-Aujourd’hui. In his family, he is the only one practicing prayer. The issue of religion has never been a problem within the family, says his nephew. “His nephews have a coffee shop in Akbu that opens during Ramadan to welcome non-young people. His brothers do not even make Ramadan. He even has members of his family who are Christians, “says our interlocutor.
    The last meeting between Sofiane and Farid dates back to last year. “We went together to the beach. He told me about his plans. He expected to return after his doctorate to settle in Algiers and develop an electronic newspaper “.
    How did he become radicalized? “I think he started to take an interest in religion during his stay in Sweden,” Sofiane replied. Paradoxically, according to our sources, it was Farid who created the first section of the MAK (Movement for the Autonomy of Kabylie) in Sweden. (Google translated)
    Farid Ikken was also one of the winners of the UE’s 2009 Journalism Against Discrimination 2009 award. He received the prize for his article “A really sick Christmas” (pdf) in the newspaper People in Bild. The article is about the Rosengrenska Foundation in Gothenburg, where people who are not taken care of in the Swedish healthcare sector get help.
