The authoress of the new book Fatwa: Hunted in America told Big League Politics she is surprised there has been so little attention to the conviction Wednesday of a Massachusetts man, who swore allegiance to the Islamic State and plotted to behead her upon orders from his ISIS handler in Syria.
“What is astonishing is that there isn’t more general indignation in the mainstream media against someone who tried to kill me for exercising my freedom of speech,” said Pamela Geller, who posts news about radical Islam at her website The Geller Report.
“Instead, most Western media outlets have internalized the idea that the response to violent intimidation from Muslims is to do what they want, and conform our behavior to their sensibilities,” she said.
“That is the path of submission and subjugation. I refuse to take it. I detail what has happened to me as a result of this refusal in my book,” she said.
Although the case against David Wright and the rest of his cell goes back to February 2015, Geller said the FBI and Department of Justice have not kept her fully informed about the progress of the case or the investigation, which is the practice for targets of violence and terrorism cases.
“Aside from some perfunctory notices about trial hearings, they haven’t communicated with me at all,” she said.
Geller said she has been warning Americans about radical Islam, since just after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and she is overwhelmed by the reaction to her book. “People have been very happy that I am finally telling my story of my work for freedom over the last 15 years.”
In addition to her national book tour for Fatwa: Hunter in America, Geller is working on the story of the two Army recruits killed Oct. 6 at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. The soldiers were in formation, but the Army has not released any other information, except for the names of the dead soldiers, Pvt. Timothy Ashcraft and Pvt. Ethan Shrader, and the six wounded.
Military recruits in training are especially vulnerable in a formation, because all of their training at the time tells them to keep their eyes forward and not to move.
Big League Politics confirmed with Army public affairs at the post that because the matter was under investigation, the name of the driver or any other details has not been released–nearly two weeks after the incident.
Geller said she is intrigued by the mystery surrounding the truck’s driver.
“Authorities have been silent about this horror since it happened,” she said.
“Here is what we do know: ‘military vehicle ran into a formation of troops in a training area of the Army’s largest basic training center.’ That’s it,” she said.
“No news briefings have been held–this is the new template: wait weeks to reveal the motive in these mysterious attacks after everyone has moved on and doesn’t care.”
NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine
Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
