CIA Counterterror Chief Suggests Going To War Against ‘Domestic Insurgents’

The former head of the CIA Counterterrorism Center has suggested that counterinsurgency tactics used by the military in Iraq and Afghanistan should be applied to ‘domestic extremists’ inside the US.

NPR reports that Robert Grenier, who directed the CIA’s Counterterrorism program from 2004 to 2006, declared “We may be witnessing the dawn of a sustained wave of violent insurgency within our own country, perpetrated by our own countrymen.”

In an op-ed for The New York Times last week, Grenier suggested that “extremists who seek a social apocalypse … are capable of producing endemic political violence of a sort not seen in this country since Reconstruction.”

Grenier, also a former CIA station chief in Pakistan and Afghanistan, grouped together “the Proud Boys, the Three Percenters, the Oath Keepers, ‘Christian’ national chauvinists, white supremacists and QAnon fantasists” and claimed they are all “committed to violent extremism.”

Grenier labeled dissenters an “insurgency” and called for them to be “defeated” like an enemy army.

In further comments to NPR, Grenier stated that “as in any insurgency situation, you have committed insurgents who are typically a relatively small proportion of the affected population. But what enables them to carry forward their program is a large number of people from whom they can draw tacit support.”

Grenier also stated that insurgents may emerge from groups who “believe that the election was stolen,” or those “who don’t trust NPR or The New York Times.”

“The most violent elements that we are concerned about right now see former President Trump as a broadly popular and charismatic symbol,” the CIA spook added, before comparing Trump to Saddam Hussein.

“You know, just as I saw in the Middle East that the air went out of violent demonstrations when [Iraqi leader] Saddam Hussein was defeated and seen to be defeated, I think the same situation applies here,” he proclaimed.

Grenier suggested that Trump should be convicted at the upcoming impeachment trial as a ‘national security imperative’ because “So long as he is there and leading the resistance, if you will, which he shows every sign of intending to do, he is going to be an inspiration to very violent people.”

Grenier then compared Americans to Al Qaeda and the Taliban, noting that in Afghanistan “the thrust of our campaign there was, yes, to hunt down al-Qaida, but primarily to remove the supportive environment in which they were able to live and to flourish. And that meant fighting the Taliban.”

“I think that is the heart of what we need to deal with here,” he added.

Linking to Grenier’s comments, journalist Glenn Greenwald quipped that wedding guests throughout America should watch out for drone missiles:

The call to treat Americans as terrorist insurgents comes on the heels of a Department of Homeland Security warning that those dissatisfied with the election result may rise up and commit acts of terrorism in the coming weeks.

“Information suggests that some ideologically-motivated violent extremists with objections to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence,” stated the bulletin issued last week through the DHS National Terrorist Advisory System — or NTAS.

The bulletin added that ‘extremists’ may be “motivated by a range of issues, including anger over COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 election results, and police use of force.”

Video: Biden Confronted On Allowing ‘Untested And Unvaccinated’ Illegals Into U.S.

“What is the thinking behind letting untested and unvaccinated migrants cross the southern border into U.S. cities in record numbers?”

Joe Biden failed to provide a logical answer when confronted Tuesday by Fox News reporter Peter Doocy, who asked “what is the thinking behind letting untested and unvaccinated migrants” into the U.S. en mass.

After Biden made remarks about borders not being able to stop the pandemic, Doocy countered with a slam dunk.

“You just said there is no wall high enough and no ocean wide enough to protect us from the virus. So what is the thinking behind letting untested and unvaccinated migrants cross the southern border into U.S. cities in record numbers?” Doocy asked Biden.

Of course, Biden had no real answer, claiming that he is still sending unvaccinated people back across the border, but adding “unaccompanied children is a different story. Because the most humane thing to do is to test them and to treat them and not send them back alone.”

When Doocy attempted to follow up and obtain a real answer, the press gang shouted him down and drowned him out.

Watch:

One of the most vocal critics of Biden allowing the southern states to be flooded with COVID positive illegals has been Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott, who told Hannity Monday that Biden’s double standard of closing the Northern border needs to be highlighted.

“The Biden administration is allowing people to come across the Southern border, many of whom who have COVID, most of whom are not really being checked for COVID. Those who do have COVID, some have been released into our cities at the very same time the Biden administration is preventing people to come across the Northern border from Canada and into he United States,” Abbott noted.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick also slammed Biden last week, urging that ”This White House is allowing our country not only to be invaded with many criminals crossing the border, MS-13 potential or current gang members, but now they are letting a flow of people infected with COVID while they are telling students in the first and second grade that they have to wear a mask, or telling adults, vaccinate or wear a mask.”

Watch:

Reports circulating today indicate that Biden is considering having illegals vaccinated at the border with the Johnson & Johnson single dose COVID vaccine before releasing them into the country.

Video: Biden Appears To Yell “My Butt’s Been Wiped” At A Reporter

It’s anyone’s guess what the hell he’s shouting here

As Joe Biden doddered up to a gaggle of reporters Sunday with all the grace of a reanimated corpse, he also seemed to yell “My butt’s been wiped” right into the face of one reporter who was shouting questions about immigration above the whirring of a helicopter.

Watch:

Maybe that’s not what he said, but yes, it is real:

The reporters all laughed as if this is completely normal behaviour for the so called leader of the free world.

Before shuffling off Biden said “There needs to be a pathway to citizenship whether it needs to be in immigration remains to be seen.”

Eh?

Anyone got any ideas what he actually yelled?

Truly bizarre.

Video: Capitol Defendant’s Attorney Says Detainees Are Being Subject To “TORTURE!” In Car Crash CNN Interview

“Are you OK with people being tortured five miles from the White House?”

An attorney for one of the defendants charged with infiltrating the U.S. Capitol building on January 6th alleged that his client and others are being brutally tortured “five miles from the White House” in an awkward interview on CNN Tuesday.

Joseph McBride was asked for comments relating to the eight month prison sentence given to Paul Hodgkins for merely walking into the building and sitting at Nancy Pelosi’s desk.

McBride, who represents another of the accused told CNN host John Avlon that “there are people who showed up to attack the Capitol, there are people who showed up to protest, and there are people who showed up to protest that got involved with the greater events of that day. And it is very important not to lump everybody in, not to define every protester that showed up that day as an insurrectionist — which, by the way, no one has been charged with.” 

Avlon then asked McBride about a comparison he made between the conditions the suspects are being held in and Nazi gulags, pouring scorn on the notion.

McBride urged that “People are being tortured. Tortured!” asking Avlon “Are you OK with people being tortured five miles from the White House?”

Avlon responded by saying that the claim was “an extraordinary statement that would seem to be utterly un-based in fact.”

McBride shot back yelling “Torture is never OK! TORTURE! TORTURE! TORTURE! TORTURE! TORTURE!” prompting Avlon to end the interview

“Keep yelling torture. We’ll stick with the facts,” he said.

“The facts are torture!” the attorney yelled back.

Watch:

It isn’t the first time that the claims of torture have arisen in regards to the Capitol ‘rioters’ who have been held for months without trial.

The inmates and some of their lawyers have alleged that they are being held in solitary confinement and have been subject to beatings, threats and verbal abuse by guards.

On attorney described his client Ryan Samsel’s face as looking “like a tomato that was stomped on,” after a beating by correctional officers that left him “blind in one eye, [with] a skull fracture and detached retina.”

Inmate Ronald Sandlin has also alleged that minority guards are targeting the mostly white inmates with racial abuse, specifically noting that one guard shouted “I hate all white people and your honky religion.”
