Do the math within the timeline provided in this story and you will find the substance for the headline. Since the 2009 Obama speech in Cairo we have discussed the consequences against the backdrop of Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria and the larger mid-east.
Within the accompanying research and discussion – years ago Zurich Mike coined the phrase: “Obama killed the Mid-East Zookeepers, unlocked the big cat cages, and just walked away”…
The coded messaging within the June 2009 speech in Cairo was a message to the Middle East that America would no longer protect the various dictators, and it was safe to attack them. The Obama administration would accept their replacements, regardless of how they assumed power. The message (speech here) was transparently obvious to those who understood the ramifications.
(Via Daily Mail) The Tunisian terror suspect wanted in connection with the Berlin Christmas market atrocity spent four years in an Italian jail before moving to Germany, his father revealed today.
Anis Amri settled in Italy after leaving his hometown of Tataouine, *Tunisia seven years ago to travel to Europe as an illegal immigrant, his father claimed in a radio interview. [*note, he would have been 17-years-old]
Amri, who has a €100,000 reward on his head, spent *four years in an Italian jail after burning down a school before leaving the country for Germany last year. [*note, the terrorist would have been 20-years-old at the time].
He had been under covert for much of the time since his arrival in Germany last year.
Security forces exchanged information as recently as last month that allegedly tied Amri to Islamic extremists, Fox News reported.
And in June German authorities reportedly tried to deport Amri after learning he was plotting a ‘serious act of violent subversion’, a source told the Washington Post.
Amri even tried to recruit an accomplice for a terror plot – and again the authorities knew about it – but still he remained at large, it has emerged.
It is understood, Amri has used at least six different names under three different nationalities.
Berlin prosecutors announced they had launched an investigation into Amri on March 14 after receiving a tip-off from federal security agencies.
It was claimed, Amri was planning a string of break-ins or robberies to purchase automatic weapons for use in a terror attack.
Surveillance showed that Amri was involved in drug dealing in a Berlin park and involved in a bar brawl, but no evidence to substantiate the original warning. The observation was called off in September.
He arrived in Germany in July 2015 and was given a hearing by immigration authorities in April this year. He was denied the right to asylum and was due to be deported before the end of the year.
But under a peculiarity of the German asylum system he was granted a ‘Duldung’ or toleration papers allowing him to stay for unknown reasons. (read more)
