Yemeni Jihadi Killed in Louisiana—Not a Peep from the Media
By John Guandolo, Founder of UnderstandingTheThreat.com

How many Americans are aware of the hostage situation in Louisiana this week?  In all likelihood, few reading this are.

How many of your are aware that the man who took the hostages was from Yemen? You wouldn't know this if you watch CNN or any other mainstream media outlet. The average person reading about the incident for the first time would probably assume some random crazy guy took hostages at a bank in Smalltown, USA. The police stormed the bank, killed the assailant who killed the hostages before he was killed. That's it, right?

But that isn't it.

How derelict is our media today when yet another act of jihad gets transformed into another run-of-the mill story? In most of the stories about the incident, the media didn't even report the jihadi's name!

Here's a clue. The assailants name is Fuaed Abdo Ahmed, a twenty year-old young man of Yemeni descent. Ahmed traveled to Yemen this summer for reasons yet unknown to the FBI, and was detained at the airport upon his return to the US.

Ahmed's photo below is also what experts might refer to as "investigative clue."

I believe Ahmed is holding an AK-47 in the photo. Call me reactionary, but...

As mentioned in my previous blog, the federal government's complete inability to identify the threat to this country from the Global Islamic Movement is costing lives here on the streets of America.
When Muslim males drive cars over pedestrians killing them, they get dubbed "crazy." No mention of vehicular jihad.

When a Muslim named Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad killed U.S. Army Private Andy Long in Little Rock, Arkansas the Department of Justice refused to prosecute the case as terrorism even though the assailant claimed it was jihad. The homicide was prosecuted as a state murder case. A "Mujahid" is a "Holy Warrior" in Islam. This is also an "investigative clue."

When U.S. Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan killed over a dozen people on Fort Hood, our government declared it to be "workplace violence."

I believe we can now officially declare our leaders at the national level "Insane" and completely incapable of defending us.

It is time for local and state leaders to take back their own streets, one town, one county, one state at a time.

Thanks to the www.Hayride.com for publishing the ground truth about this incident. Good to see investigative journalism is not completely dead in America.
