Special Operations general: Millions liberated from the ‘evil of ISIS’

Published

on

WASHINGTON, Jan. 16, 2018 — Coalition and Iraqi forces have liberated millions of people from the “evil of ISIS,” with the efforts putting Iraq on a path toward greater security, an Operation Inherent Resolve official said today in Baghdad.

Coalition partners will continue to support the Iraqi security forces to “root out and destroy” the remaining terrorists with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, Marine Corps Brig. Gen. James F. Glynn, deputy commanding general of Special Operations Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve, said in a teleconference with Pentagon reporters.

He lauded the Iraqi security forces and their successes against a brutal enemy.

“The ISF has proven itself a legitimate fighting force that has and will continue their momentum, provide security for the people of Iraq, and quell the rise of new insurgencies,” the general said.

The successes of the Iraqi forces has been evident “time and again in the dismantling of threats and tyranny held on communities,” he said.

Baghdad attack: Cowardly, evil, desperate act

Although ISIS has been militarily defeated, challenges remain, Glynn said.

“As we recognize these challenges, we wish to extend our sympathies to those who were killed and injured in the suicide attack in a Baghdad market just yesterday,” he said. The double suicide bombing in Tayaran Square killed more than two dozen people.

“This attack is another example of the cowardice, evil and the desperate acts that ISIS and other violent extremists who want to remain relevant throughout this area of operation will execute,” Glynn said.

4.5 million liberated from ‘Evil of ISIS’

Glynn described efforts from coalition and Iraqi forces to restore security in Iraq.

“The campaign against ISIS has resulted in over 4.5 million people in Iraq liberated from the evil of ISIS,” Glynn said, adding “We congratulate the government of Iraq on their success, and are proud to stand beside them.”

Other successes include Iraqi forces destroying more than 100 improvised explosive devices and thousands of pounds of explosives across Iraq in recent weeks, he said.

Defeating ‘Evil terrorist ideology’

The fight, however, is not over, Glynn said, highlighting that much work remains to ensure the enduring defeat of this “evil terrorist ideology.”

ISIS has demonstrated its desire to return to its terrorist roots, he said, noting innocent civilians have been killed in ISIS bombings and attacks over the past several weeks. He said Iraqi partners will continue to provide security, including policing and border control functions, to prevent the migration and re-emergence of the ISIS threat.

Defeating the terrorists will take some time, he said, because ISIS fighters are hiding in the mountains and among the civilian population.

“As we look forward to the next stage in the campaign, the coalition will continue to assist in consolidating gains made over the past few years,” he said. “This involves the stabilization of security and essential services, focused predominantly in areas where ISIS once dominated — and our Iraqi partners will make this happen.”

Left-Wing Extremist Charged in Alleged Florida Capitol Attack Identified Soros as “Sponsor”

Daniel Alan Baker had bragged of a Soros sponsorship.

Published

A left-wing extremist arrested and charged with a terrorist plot to confront and kidnap protestors at the Florida Capitol identified billionaire George Soros as his “sponsor” in a YouTube video. Daniel Alan Baker, 33, has been federally charged with transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure.

Baker appears to have fought overseas with a Kurdish militia group identified as a terrorist organization by the State Department, the Marxist PKK. He’s an Army veteran who appears to have been discharged after going AWOL before a deployment.

Baker has been charged for an alleged plot involving a group of armed leftists surrounding pro-Trump protestors at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. It’s unclear if right-wing protestors even intend to demonstrate at the site, and Baker’s dangerous attempt to incite an armed confrontation may never have advanced beyond speculative stages.

A “call to arms” flier seen on Baker’s YouTube channel calls for Florida residents to surround supposed “racists” and to “trap them inside” the State Capitol, advocating for the kidnapping of supposed Inauguration demonstrators.

In a YouTube video calling for doxxing attempts on individuals present at the raucous US Capitol riot, Baker brags of having acquired the globalist oligarch as a “sponsor,” implying that the megabillionaire had provided him with an “antifa card.”

Baker’s remarks may have been hyperbole, intentionally seeking to draw attention from critics of the Hungarian-born liberal kingpin.

A charging affidavit also alleges that Baker advocated for the assassination of United States military officers on his YouTube channel, a threat that could potentially incur even more serious criminal charges.

The FBI believes that Baker intended to assassinate Turkish military personnel training in the United States, and that he was on the scene during Seattle’s Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist rebellion. Baker identified himself as a “hardcore leftist” on his personal social media, as well, urging his followers to “prepare for war” after the November 3rd election.
