Journalist Reveals How Arms Experts Tracked Down Illicit US Supplies to Iraq ISIS Workshop

A story published by Wired reveals that an EU-funded group of arms experts went to Iraq and Syria to explore Islamic State’s well-oiled manufacturing machine, only to find that the US routinely violated arms control clauses.

This week the Conflict Armament Research (CAR), a London-based organization partly funded by the European Union, published a 200-page report that summarizes three years of work done by its field teams in Iraq. CAR experts were documenting the weapons Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) used on battlefields and how exactly it acquired them. In a story published by Wired, writer Brian Castner, a former Explosive Ordnance Disposal officer and veteran of the Iraq War, recounts his experience of following CAR field expert Damien Spleeters as he gathered evidence in the Iraqi city of Tal Afar.

CAR field research is about finding weapons and weapon components, documenting markings and tracing the weapons back to their country of origin and origin through tell-tale signs like particular shades of paint. Serial numbers allowed the group to confirm numerous cases in which weapons produced by EU members like Romania and Bulgaria, and purchased by the US and Saudi Arabia, ended up in the hands of IS.

Spleeters was the one who discovered a batch of dismantled Romanian PG-9 73mm rocket-propelled grenades in Tal Afar. The batch had been sold to the US in 2014 and later apparently sent to Syria to arm a group called Jaysh Suriyah al-Jadid in violation of clauses forbidding re-export of the weapons. The Romanian government has provided CAR with documents confirming both the delivery and the fact that the US signed an end-use certificate. This case is not an isolated incident; several others are detailed in the CAR report.

The CAR investigation has also uncovered the scale and ingenuity of IS arms manufacturers, who managed to organize production of “a nation-state’s worth of weapons” according to Castner. The terrorist group did not simply grab whatever weapons they could, but spurred a complex production network, which repurposed components of weapons made in other countries and complemented them with domestically-produced components to create a range of arms tailored for IS’ own needs.

“Iraq’s oil fields provided the industrial base – tool-and-die sets, high-end saws, injection­molding machines – and skilled workers who knew how to quickly fashion intricate parts to spec. Raw materials came from cannibalizing steel pipe and melting down scrap. ISIS engineers forged new fuzes, new rockets and launchers, and new bomblets to be dropped by drones, all assembled using instruction plans drawn up by ISIS officials,” Castner writes.

The military defeat of IS does not mean the loss of all the know-how – weapon designs, solved engineering problems, industrial processes, blueprints and schematics – which the self-proclaimed caliphate gathered over three years. The effort needed to mass-produce arms will only become smaller as technologies like metal 3D-printing are becoming more accessible, he warned.

CAR’s field expert Spleeters became fascinated with tracing supply chains in modern conflicts, starting in 2011 in his native Belgium. Working as a reporter, he wanted to understand and report to the public how Belgian-made weapons came into the possession of Libyan rebels fighting to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi. He discovered that the only way to get to the bottom of the story was to travel to Libya, which he did in his spare time. Spleeters became a freelance journalist after returning, reporting on arms trafficking for newspapers and think-tanks specializing in tracing arms, and joined CAR as a fulltime investigator in 2014.

The expert says field trips are the only way to properly collect evidence necessary to establish the truth. The data collected this way cannot be replicated by analyzing online videos, a method favored by some investigative groups like Bellingcat.

“With all the social media things, when you see ordnance or small arms from afar, you might think, ‘Oh, that’s an M-16.’ But if you see it close up, you figure out it’s a CQ-556 rifle from China, a copy of the M-16. But you need to be close by to see it,” Castner cites him as saying. Spleeters believes that the camera conceals more than it reveals.

He said the situation in Iraq, just like Syria, was a mess. “Nobody knows what’s going on, and there’s all these conspiracy theories. We live in a post-truth era, where facts don’t matter anymore. And with this work, it’s like you can finally grab onto something that’s true.”

Bomb Set Off in New York City Subway Station – Attempted Terrorist Attack in New York

Breaking news story here.

There are reports of an explosion occurring in the bus terminal of a New York City subway station. It looks like this may have been an attempted pipe bombing or suicide bombing gone wrong. The bomber seems to have blown himself up by mistake.

Police have a man in custody but have yet to identify him.

The Sun:

THERE are fears New York suffered another terror attack today following an explosion at Port Authority Bus Terminal near Times Square.

Police have yet to reveal the nature of the device but local reports suggest a suicide belt or pipe bomb detonated prematurely underground at the packed bus and train interchange.

Witnesses reported a stampede as panicked commuters rushed to escape the scene, but police said the suspect was the only person injured.

An officer reportedly told CBS News that cops are looking at a possible suicide bomber, although the situation is said to be “fluid”.

One man has been taken into police custody with non life-threatening injuries.

The New York Post citing police sources said “wires” were seen protruding from the suspect’s body in the aftermath of the blast. Police have yet to comment on this.

Here’s a few news clips on the situation.

The New York City Police Department has so far only issued this statement to describe what’s going on.

Other than that, we don’t know a whole lot else. Even though we can’t say for certain, the chances of the bomber being a Moslem is high. Nearly every type of incident we have seen like this has involved a Moslem or a group of Moslems being responsible.

We’ll have more information as it becomes available.

The Las Vegas Shooting

What in the world made this Boomer snap?

Did Paddock’s love for diversity in his bed make him a more tolerant and happy person, free of hate? Or did it motivate him to shoot up an overwhelmingly White concert?

Update:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4941092/ISIS-claim-responsibility-Vegas-shooting.html

Officials deny Vegas shooter was linked to terror groups after ISIS claim responsibility and say gunman ‘converted to Islam months ago’

  • Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, killed 50 people and injured more than 400
  • ISIS claimed he had converted and that he was a ‘Soldier of Islamic State’
  • US officials say there is no evidence that Paddock was linked to ISIS

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the mass shooting in Las Vegas where 50 people were killed and more than 406 wounded, and said the attacker had converted to Islam a few months ago.

Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, a resident of nearby Mesquite, Nevada, opened fire on a country music festival taking place at Las Vegas Village from a room across the street in the Mandalay Bay Hotel just after 10pm on Sunday evening.

The claim was swiftly shot down by US officials, who said there is no evidence he was linked to ISIS. Paddock’s family had earlier said he had no religious or political affiliations.

Claims: Terror group ISIS said Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock had 'converted to Islam a few months ago' and that he was a 'soldier of the Islamic State'

Claims: Terror group ISIS said Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock had ‘converted to Islam a few months ago’ and that he was a ‘soldier of the Islamic State’

‘The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition,’ the group’s news agency Amaq said in reference to the U.S.-led coalition fighting the group in the Middle East.

‘The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago,’ Amaq added.

UN confirms Israel is helping ISIS to overthrow Assad ...

As of now, the shooter seems to be a fuckin’ white male with an Indonesian girlfriend who shot down on a crowd of 22,000 country music festival attendees from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. To be more specific, the shooter was a 64-year-old, possibly lefty Boomer with a Muslim girlfriend with an Australian passport.

According to Time, the suspect had been staying in a hotel room in Las Vegas since September 28th, and before that had lived in a retirement community in central Florida.

The Independent:

Isis has claimed responsibility for the deadliest mass shooting in American history. (…)

A statement published by the group’s Amaq propaganda agency claimed the attacker was a “soldier of the Islamic State”.

“The Las Vegas attacker is a soldier of the Islamic State in response to calls to target coalition countries,” it said.

Isis also claimed the gunman “converted to Islam several months ago”, without providing more details.

Zerohedge:

Update 8 (9:10am): The Vegas shooter Paddock killed himself as the police closed in. According to undersheriff Kevin McMahill, Stephen Paddock died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound as police made entry to his Las Vegas hotel room. He also confirmed that Paddock, who is believed to have checked into the hotel on Thursday, had more than 10 guns. McMahill added that Marilou Danley is overseas and that officers have made contact with her.  She is believed to be Australian and of Indonesian origin.

Breitbart:

Update — 5:40 a.m. PDT: “The Clark County Fire Department estimated that approximately 406 people were transported to area hospitals and 50 are dead following Sunday evening’s shooting.”

Zerohedge:

According to the Australian, Marilou Danley, the woman wanted by police in connection with the Las Vegas shooting is Australian. The Australian understands that she was the girlfriend of the dead shooter Stephen Paddock. Ms Danley is understood to have shared a house in Las Vegas with Mr Paddock. She holds an Australian passport and is possibly of Indonesian decent. Las Vegas Police said that they had located Danley after earlier issuing her photo and naming her as a person of interest following the shooting.

Did the woman Islamize and radicalize her hubby? Maybe. Israeli news seems to think so. Indonesia has a problem with Islam, so maybe they’re not wrong.

Marilou Danley is a former “high-limit hostess” at a casino. The mother and grandmother, whose now deleted Facebook page was full of photos with family members and trips overseas, was described by police as a 4’11” Asian woman. She was described as a “companion” of the still unidentified shooter. Police stopped short of calling Danley a suspect in the early morning hours of October 2, but they said they wanted to talk to her about the carnage.

It would be interesting to find out where those trips took her. The casinos operating in the Gulf States maybe?

This is now the deadliest shooting in US history:

In a press briefing, Las Vegas Sheriff Lombardo said that the death toll from the gruesome shooting has risen to at least 50, with more than 200 injured. Additionally, Lombardo said that the now deceased shooter was identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock. The sheriff added that “we are confident but not 100% sure that we have located the female person of interest.”

Quick question: did Paddock’s love for diversity in his bed make him a more tolerant and happy person, free of hate? Or did it motivate him to shoot up an overwhelmingly White concert?

Guess diversity isn’t the answer to everything.

Media narrative inbound: Option 1: white supremacist fascist asshole who’s been emboldened by Trump’s presidency. Option 2: anti-fascist hero, who has taken out a load of right-wing country music-lovin’ trump supporting rubes.

Either way, the guns gotta go.

Here’s a thought. If this was really just a mentally ill man (which it might be), who just decided to shoot up a country concert in a premeditated act of violence, then what does it say about the state of mental health in America? And what does it say about the state of Boomers?

Ban assault boomers NOW.

Something’s not right. These kinds of attacks happen with increasing frequency all over the place. People will want someone to put an end to it, one way or another.

The Afghan war is Lost

As a public service, Best Defense is offering this primer for generals on their way to Afghanistan.

Here is a list of 19 things that many insiders and veterans of Afghanistan agree to be true about the war there, but that generals can’t say in public. So, general, read this now and believe it later-but keep your lip zipped. Maybe even keep a printout in your wallet and review before interviews.

My list of things to remember I can’t say

  • Pakistan is now an enemy of the United States.
  • We don’t know why we are here, what we are fighting for, or how to know if we are winning.
  • The strategy is to fight, talk, and build. But we’re withdrawing the fighters, the Taliban won’t talk, and the builders are corrupt.
  • Karzai’s family is especially corrupt.
  • We want President Karzai gone but we don’t have a Pushtun successor handy.
  • But the problem isn’t corruption, it is which corrupt people are getting the dollars. We have to help corruption be more fair.
  • Another thing we’ll never stop here is the drug traffic, so the counternarcotics mission is probably a waste of time and resources that just alienates a swath of Afghans.
  • Making this a NATO mission hurt, not helped. Most NATO countries are just going through the motions in Afghanistan as the price necessary to keep the US in Europe
  • Yes, the exit deadline is killing us.
  • Even if you got a deal with the Taliban, it wouldn’t end the fighting.
  • The Taliban may be willing to fight forever. We are not.
  • Yes, we are funding the Taliban, but hey, there’s no way to stop it, because the truck companies bringing goods from Pakistan and up the highway across Afghanistan have to pay off the Taliban. So yeah, your tax dollars are helping Mullah Omar and his buddies. Welcome to the neighborhood.
  • Even non-Taliban Afghans don’t much like us.
  • Afghans didn’t get the memo about all our successes, so they are positioning themselves for the post-American civil war .
  • And they’re not the only ones getting ready. The future of Afghanistan is probably evolving up north now as the Indians, Russians and Pakistanis jockey with old Northern Alliance types. Interestingly, we’re paying more and getting less than any other player.
  • Speaking of positioning for the post-American civil war, why would the Pakistanis sell out their best proxy shock troops now?
  • The ANA and ANP could break the day after we leave the country.
  • We are ignoring the advisory effort and fighting the “big war” with American troops, just as we did in Vietnam. And the U.S. military won’t act any differently until and work with the Afghan forces seriously until when American politicians significantly draw down U.S. forces in country-when it may be too damn late.
  • The situation American faces in Afghanistan is similar to the one it faced in Vietnam during the Nixon presidency: A desire a leave and turn over the war to our local allies, combined with the realization that our allies may still lose, and the loss will be viewed as a U.S. defeat anyway.
