The Strange Case of Barrack Hussein Obama Part 2

By Mitch Santell, Producer, The Hagmann and Hagmann Report

15 September 2013:  Last night I was walking the dog and it was a lovely evening. The crickets sounded like they do on most California evenings. The longer I walked the longer my mind drifted to the past. First, I started thinking about the kind of world my grandchildren will live in after I pass on. Second, I thought about my parents and how they were crazy in love with each other for 48 years until my Father passed away in 2004. Third, I started thinking about something called “The Saturday Night Massacre.” Do you remember it? Have you ever heard of it? If you know your history and you are like me, you wish it would happen again. Take a look at this video and then continue to read “The Strange Case of Barrack Hussein Obama Part 2….”. Read the rest here.

Humanity’s Ultimate Weapon

JFKBy Dave Hodges,  contributor and guest to The Hagmann and Hagmann Report.

Humanity is presently locked in a pitched battle for survival. Our traditions, our cultures, our health and longevity, our mental health and our spiritual well-being, are gravely threatened by self-serving allies of some very dark forces that we often refer to as Satan. Subsequently, when we reduce the world’s conflicts to the lowest common denominator, what we are left with is a battle between good and evil. And for now, evil is winning hands down.

Iraq Directly Tied to 1973 New York City Terrorist Bomb Plot

By Sean Osborne, Associate Director

UPDATE:  27 February 2009: Last evening at just about 7 PM there was issued an AP NewsBreak regarding the release last week from the federal Supermax prison in Florence, Colorado and deportation of the Islamic terrorist (pictured left). The news item had no information on the identification of the country to which the deportation occurred.

However, the report did reveal a tidbit of info which has left many observers stunned by the backassward nature of this release and guessing at the agenda of those behind the release of this Islamic terrorist, a terrorist whose positive identification is still an unknown.

The stunning revelation which has come to light is that the FBI was investigating whether Al-Jawary helped carry out other terrorist attacks, and was hoping to charge him before his deportation.


According to the AP those charges may have been made with respect to a “murderous” 1970s letter bombing campaign and the bombing in 1974 of a TWA Boeing 707 commercial passenger aircraft which killed 88 innocent people. That bombing was of TWA Flight 841 (Tail Number N8734) during its flight from Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion International Airport to New York’s JFK International Airport. Following an hour-long stopover in Athens a bomb exploded in the cargo hold 18 minutes after being airborne and while over the Ionian Sea. The crash which followed killed all passengers and crew onboard.

If an active FBI investigation leading to additional formal charges was in progress then why on earth was this Islamic terrorist released?

3 February 2009: The Palestinian terrorist above, Khalid Duhham AL-JAWARY, is currently in a federal detention center in Manhattan serving a 30-year sentence imposed by Judge Jack B Weinstein on April 16, 1993 for his direct role (fingerprints on one of the bombs) in a planned PLO/Black September multi-VBIED plot that would have killed hundreds of innocent people during a visit by Israeli PM Golda Meir in March 1973. Three powerful bombs were placed in cars. Two were positioned on Manhattan’s 5th Avenue outside Israeli banks and the third at Kennedy International Airport’s El Al cargo terminal. That vehicle had the parts for a forth bomb within it.

The federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) currently plans to release this terrorist on February 19th “after completing only about half his term, including time served prior to his sentencing and credit for good behavior.” He will then be handed over to U.S. Immigration authorities for deportation to who knows where. Details about Al-Jawary are found in this KDKA report filed 10 days ago. Initial links to Iraq are found in this report.

The Iraq Study Group: A HUMINT-based Assessment

by Sean Osborne, Associate Director, Senior Analyst, Military Affairs

28 November 2006: In the Middle East, in Europe, in Asia and in the Western Hemisphere the perception is emanating from the various political, military and religious leaders that no nation is capable of stopping Iran from becoming a nuclear armed state. Particularly in the Middle East is the expressed fear of a devastating war looming on the horizon, possibly within just a few short months. Wars and rumors of wars. Where do these perceptions originate and upon what are they based?

SADDAM HUSSEIN VERDICT: JUST THE FACTS

5 November 2006: At approximately 4:30 a.m. ET, the ten judges comprising the Iraqi High tribunal found Saddam Hussein guilty of crimes against humanity, relating to his murder and deportation of nearly 400 men, women and children in the town of Dujail in 1982, in retaliation of an assassination attempt. Saddam was sentenced to death by hanging. The tribunal also handed down death sentences to Hussein’s half-brother and former intelligence chief Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti and former revolutionary chief judge Awad Hamed al-Bander. Former Iraqi vice president Taha Yassin Ramadan was also found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. Three other Baath party officials were found guilty and sentenced to 15 years in prison; a fourth Baath party official was acquitted.

Flashback: Iraq analysis confirmed 1 month later - by President

The Tet holiday shares this similarity to Ramadan. For years there was pre-Tet holiday paranoia that the North Vietnamese would use the Tet holiday to launch attacks just as we have done with Ramadan over the last five years. The similarity is uncanny if you think about it. We are now treating Ramadan each year much as we did the Tet holiday in years prior to 1968. -Analyst Randy Taylor, September 22, 2006.

19 October 2006: In an interview conducted yesterday (October 18, 2006) by George Stephanopoulos of ABC, President Bush said he agreed with an editorial by New York Times writer Thomas Friedman that the increased attacks in Iraq could be the “jihadist equivalent” of the 1968 Tet Offensive in Vietnam.

Sound familiar? It should, as Randy Taylor published an almost identical analysis nearly one month ago. The analysis provided to our visitors by Mr. Taylor in his article dated September 22, 2006 was, unfortunately, dead-on accurate: “[There are] indications that there will be a huge upsurge in violence in Iraq.”

Special Report on Abu Mus’ab al Zarqawi

Confirmed: Abu Mus’ab al Zarqawi Detained but Freed in November 2004

17 December 2005: It was finally confirmed by Iraqi Deputy Minister Major General Hussein Kamal that Iraqi security forces had held and questioned terror leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in the Falluja area in November 2004, but let him go simply because they did not recognize him. According to reports, al-Zarqawi was “detained for about three or four hours.”

Confirmation of his detention and release stemmed from the interrogation of a Ahmed Abdullah al-Shayea, a Saudi citizen who survived a would-be suicide attack he was supposed to carry out Baghdad’s western neighborhood of Mansour. In a televised interview in January, Al-Shayea claimed that he was tricked into driving a fuel truck that was then detonated by al-Qaeda operatives in Baghdad on Christmas Day 2004 in Mansour, killing nine people and badly injuring him.

Other reports of missed opportunities to capture al-Zarqawi have been reported, including a raid on 28 April 2005 by US forces who were acting on a tip from local informants that militants -including al Zarqawi - were hiding in a hospital in Ramadi. A more recent report indicated that al-Zarqawi was among those killed in a raid and fierce gun battle in the northern city of Mosul last month. There is no word on the outcome of DNA tests to identify whether al-Zarqawi was one of the terrorists, but U.S. officials have denied from the onset that al-Zarqawi was killed in that battle.

Al-Zarqawi, who has claimed responsibility for numerous attacks in Iraq along with the kidnappings and beheadings of foreigners, has a $25 million (USD) bounty on his head.

The Northeast Intelligence Network reported of his near capture following this incident in late 2004.

“CSI: MOSUL”

22 November 2005: Although top U.S. military commanders continue to deny that al Qaeda thug Abu Mus’ab al Zarqawi was killed in a weekend raid on a house in Mosul where eight terrorists were killed by U.S. forces, a DNA comparison is currently underway to be certain. Through late yesterday, various sources from U.S. military and intelligence agencies were steadfast in their immediate public denials that al -Zarqawi was in the fortified compound targeted by U.S. and coalition forces last weekend. That raid was conducted less than two weeks after the November 9, 2005 al -Zarqawi sponsored suicide bombing against three hotels in Amman , Jordan that killed 60 people - mostly Muslims. In a subsequent audio statement, al Zarqawi denied that he purposely targeted a wedding party where the majority of Muslims were killed, al though his denial was somewhat countered by would-be Iraqi female suicide bomber Sijida Mubarek Atrous al-Rishawi, whose explosive device failed to detonate and was ultimately captured.

In an interesting turn of events, the same DIA official that told the Northeast Intelligence Network that there was “declining suggestive evidence” that al Zarqawi was at the house targeted by U.S. forces, appears to have become much less certain. In an early morning telephone interview, this DIA official acknowledged that some remains from the Mosul attack have been shipped to the US for forensic analysis, adding that the most recent findings suggest “the presence of a HVT” (high-value target), which indeed could refer to al Zarqawi himself. “A more recent evaluation of the scene and “other factors” not yet made public indicate a certain level of protection afforded to someone of al Zarqawi’s stature.

It is interesting to note that the assets used for the attack on this Mosul safe-house have been equated with those used against the fortified Mosul compound occupied by Saddam Hussein’s sons Uday and Qusay in July of 2003. Developing…

Abu Mus’ab al-Zarqawi “Probably Alive”

Unlikely Zarqawi Was Present at “Safe-house” Where 8 Terrorists Were Killed

21 November 2005: A military official speaking from his office Sunday to the Northeast Intelligence Network stated that there is “declining suggestive evidence” that Iraq’s most wanted terrorist, Abu Mus’ab al Zarqawi, was at the safe-house in Mosul where the remains of at least six men and one woman were recovered. U.S. and Iraqi forces and U.S. airpower struck the house after receiving intelligence that Mus’ab al Zarqawi might be inside. Speaking on condition of anonymity, the official confirmed that the tip “came through foreign intelligence services” just over a week after the multiple suicide attacks in Jordan. Although news reports suggest that 4-5 terrorists were killed fighting off the air and ground assault and three others deliberately “blew themselves up,” the military source suggested that the three hold-outs were “taken out” by the use of “advanced weaponry.” When questioned about the type of weapons used to take out the remaining terrorists, he suggested that explosives inside of the house were “remotely detonated” by U.S. forces.

Sources verified that the remains have been removed from the target location and are undergoing tests to rule out the possibility that the 39 year-old Zarqawi was one of the terrorists who were killed in the fighting.

Meanwhile, a single eulogy-style posting appeared early yesterday on several popular terrorist message boards citing previous terrorist leaders who have died in battle. Suggestions that terrorist leader Abu Mus’ab al Zarqawi was dead accompanied the posting on some of the Arabic language boards, although analysis suggests that those postings originated from open-source news reports and have little to no actual intelligence value.
