Mainstream Press Completely Ignores Islamic Extremism Connection to New Mexico Compound

In yet another case of dereliction of duty, the mainstream press has refused to report that a remote compound confirmed to be run by Islamic extremists as a Jihadi training camp in New Mexico is connected to radical Islam.

According to the Media Research CenterABC’s World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News did not report at all on the connection Thursday.

Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, a radical Islamist and the son of Brooklyn Imam Siraj Wahhaj, an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing, was arrested with four other adults, also suspected Muslim extremists, when police raided the compound in search of a missing young boy.

Big League Politics reported:

“The father of a missing Georgia boy was training children at a New Mexico compound to commit school shootings, prosecutors said in court documents obtained Wednesday,” according to Associated Press“The documents say Siraj Ibn Wahhaj was conducting weapons training with assault rifles at the compound near the Colorado border where 11 hungry children were found in filthy conditions.”

Police say Ibn Wahhaj is the father of Abdul-ghani Wahhaj, who went missing from Jonesboro, Georiga in December. His remains are believed to have been found on the Jihadi compound, but investigators have not yet positively identified him.

“ABC seemed to be tired of reporting on the disturbing compound because they only gave it a news brief lasting only 15 seconds,” MRC said.

NBC Nightly News was slightly more forthcoming. Anchor Lester Holt called the story a “dark mystery” before kicking it over to befuddled correspondent Gadi Schwartz.

“In the desert of New Mexico, allegations so disturbing they’re difficult to believe,” Schwartz said. “The Sheriff describing the suspects as Muslim extremists. Reports suggesting, they may somehow be related to a controversial Muslim faith leader in Brooklyn who has been linked to the 1993 World Trade Center bombings.”

Credit to NBC for at least mentioning the bombshell news, but there is no “dark mystery,” the allegations are not “difficult to believe,” and Ibn Wahhaj is verifiably the son of a terror-connected Imam in Brooklyn.

How many times does radical Islam need to declare its intention to wage jihad on the West before the mainstream press will report on the fact that radical Islam is actually waging jihad on the West? How many more radical Islamic terror attacks in Western cities before NBC will report the dangers of Muslim extremism without trepidation? Or before ABC and CBS will report on it at all?
