Isis commander confesses the terror group is receiving funds from the u.s. government

May 15, 2015 - Yousaf al Salafi, the professed Pakistani commander of ISIS was captured during a joint raid by law enforcement in December of last year, though Pakistani officials did not make the arrest public until January 22, 2015.

The Express Tribune first reported that al Salafi, who was arrested with two companions in Lahore, confessed that ISIS, also known as ISIL and IS, are receiving funds via the United States. It was not disclosed where in the US the funding is originating from.

Al-Salafi, along with an associate – who is reportedly an imam of a mosque – were receiving $600 for each new member of ISIS they were able to recruit. The recruits would then be sent to train at an undisclosed location in Syria.

An anonymous source speaking with the Tribune said that US Secretary of State John Kerry was made aware of the Pakistani commander’s admission during a recent visit to Islamabad. “The matter was also taken up with CENTCOM chief General Lloyd Austin during his visit to Islamab…

IS leader urges Muslims to move to 'caliphate': recording

BAGHDAD: The leader of the Islamic State group Abu Bakr al Baghdadi on Thursday urged Muslims to emigrate to his self-proclaimed “caliphate”, in the jihadist supremo’s first audio recording in six months.

“And we call upon every Muslim in every place to perform hijrah (emigration) to the Islamic State or fight in his land wherever that may be,” he said.

The voice reading the half-hour speech appeared to match previous audio recordings of Baghdadi, the latest of which was released in mid-November.

As did his previous speech, the audio tape recording released on Thursday comes a few days after media reports that he might have been seriously wounded in a strike by the US-led coalition bombing IS in Iraq and Syria.

There was no way to immediately authenticate the latest recording nor date it but Baghdadi speaks of developments in Yemen, where Saudi-led forces launched an air campaign against Shia rebels in late March, that suggest it is recent.

Echoing his previous exhortations, Baghdadi said…

The real reason America dropped the atomic bomb. It was not to end the war

On August 6, 1945, the world (unfortunately) entered the atomic age. Without warning, a single nuclear bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima killed about 90,000 people instantly and injured many others – who then died from radiation sickness. Three days later, a second atomic strike on the city of Nagasaki killed some 37,000 people and injured another 43,000. Together the two bombs eventually killed an estimated 200,000 Japanese civilians.

“The Library of Congress adds roughly 60 million pages to its holdings each year, a huge cache of information for the public. However, also each year, the U.S. Government classifies nearly ten times that amount – an estimated 560 million pages of documents. For scholars engaged in political, historical, scientific, or any other archival work, the grim reality is that most of their government’s activities are secret.” – Richard Dolan, historian, author.

A very important point made above, how can we really know anything about American history…
