Our writers here at ClashDaily.com follow Islam’s antics quite regularly and seriously. Here’s why we’ve never heard of the “Khorosan” branch of morons. Check this out from Allen B West…
So this piece penned by my friend Andy McCarthy at the National Review is quite interesting. McCarthy says the newly-named Khorasan group doesn’t exist — it is a fictitious name invented by the Obama administration for the purpose of deception.
“The president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual worldview, which holds that empowering Islamic supremacists is the path to security and stability. Yet even as war intensifies in Iraq and Syria — even as jihadists continue advancing, continue killing and capturing hapless opposition forces on the ground despite Obama’s futile air raids — the president won’t let go of the charade. Hence, Obama gives us the Khorosan Group. The who? There is a reason that no one had heard of such a group until a nanosecond ago, when the “Khorosan Group” suddenly went from anonymity to the “imminent threat” that became the rationale for an emergency air war there was supposedly no time to ask Congress to authorize.”
It is rather perplexing that an Islamic terrorist group no one had been tracking – well – except for Eric Holder who says he’d known about it for two years — all of a sudden becomes a household name. However, in less than a week we have heard nothing more since the first-night bombing of eight Khorasan targets — which supposedly killed the leader of the group.
So is there really a Khorasan group? McCarthy believes not, “The “Khorosan Group” is al-Qaida. It is simply a faction within the global terror network’s Syrian franchise, “Jabhat al-Nusra.” Its leader, Mushin al-Fadhli (believed to have been killed in this week’s U.S.-led air strikes), was an intimate of Ayman al-Zawahiri, the emir of al-Qaida who dispatched him to the jihad in Syria. Except that if you listen to administration officials long enough, you come away thinking that Zawahiri is not really al-Qaida, either. Instead, he’s something the administration is at pains to call “core al-Qaida.” “Core al-Qaida,” you are to understand, is different from “Jabhat al-Nusra,” which in turn is distinct from “al-Qaida in Iraq” (formerly “al-Qaida in Mesopotamia,” now the “Islamic State” al-Qaida spin-off that is, itself, formerly “al-Qaida in Iraq and al-Sham” or “al-Qaida in Iraq and the Levant”). That al-Qaida, don’t you know, is a different outfit from al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula . . . which, of course, should never be mistaken for “al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb,” “Boko Haram,” “Ansar al-Sharia,” or the latest entry, “al-Qaida in the Indian Subcontinent.”
