New and urgent threats from America’s more dangerous al Qaeda element in terms of threat to the US homeland.
“We are not at war with Islam. We are at war with people who have perverted Islam,” – Barack Obama, 02/19/2015
In one of two communiques from Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, senior AQAP leader Khalid Batarfi “praises two gunmen who tried to mount an attack in Garland, Texas, in May for their ‘sacrifice and heroism.’”
He then urges U.S.-based jihadis to emulate their attack: “To the warriors of Lone Jihad: may Allah bless and guide your efforts.”
Allah, Allah and Allah but Obama says, it’s not Islamic.
“We urge you to strike America in its own home and beyond,” says a letter attributed to Ibrahim al-Asiri,
“He’s without question the most dangerous terrorist operative that the United States faces today.”
“He has trained a series of individuals who are able to do what he does, which is bring imagination and innovation to an explosive device that could make it through U.S. or Western security.”
Al Qaeda’s branch in Yemen, which officials have called the terror group’s most dangerous affiliate, has issued two threatening new communiques praising recent lone-wolf style attacks against the West and calling for more of them.
Obama proclaims: ‘We are not at war with Islam’
“We urge you to strike America in its own home and beyond,” says a letter attributed to Ibrahim al-Asiri, the master bomb-maker with al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
