This just doesn’t seem right at all.
As reported by Sinclair Broadcast Group, the FBI’s made a startling discovery in Alabama: a jihadist training compound.
In Sweet Home, Alabama.
A Federal Bureau of Investigations search warrant noted a “makeshift military-style obstacle course” on a piece of land resembling “an abandoned dump” just miles outside of downtown Tuskegee.
That’s Tuskegee — home of Lionel Richie and the Commodores, who gave us “Easy,” “Three Times a Lady,” “Nightshift,” and the bada$$ “Brick House.”
What looks like a shack of a wooden house sits on the property owned by Siraj Wahhaj. The notorious 40-year-old made news last year for purportedly training 11 children to commit school shootings at a New Mexico compound.
For that activity, in March, Siraj was indicted by a grand jury for terrorism, kidnapping, and firearm violation.
Speaking to Sinclair, former Mobile Special Agent Tim Fuhrman laid out a disturbing contemporary picture of ubiquitous, murderous anti-Americanism within:
“The threat of domestic terrorism exists in every region of the United States and affects all walks of life.”
Even in Alabama??
Tim said location, schmocation:
“Just because you’re in a small town or a small state does not mean you might not potentially have individuals engaged in the types of activities that would call into question threats to national security.”
I think it’s safe to say if it’s happening in the Heart of Dixie, it truly could be anywhere.
And according to Tim, the best defense…is you:
“Sometimes, if you see something it isn’t suspicious. It’s someone exercising their first amendment rights or living the way they do that you may not agree with but does not pose a criminal or national security threat. But sometimes they actually are.”
Meanwhile, a porous border — partly made holier by Democrats (here, here, here, and here) — keeps us from knowing who’s coming in. And a U.S. congresswoman heavily accused of anti-Semitism represents the terrorist recruitment capital of the nation (here, here, here, and here).
We need a turning of the tide. A wave of national security. We should be aware of who’s here. And in cases of terrorist efforts, we need the gumption to deal with the threat. If it’s penetrated the deep south, it’s profoundly embedded. And so I say: let the waters move in the favor of protected liberty. Roll Tide.
