Man linked to 9/11 attacks on U.S. captured in Syria
A man linked to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, who was said to have praised “violent jihad,” was captured in Syria by U.S.-backed forces more than a month ago, the Pentagon said on Thursday. “We can confirm that Mohammad Haydar Zammar, a Syrian-born German national, was captured more than a month ago by SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) partners as part of their ongoing operations to defeat ISIS inside Syria,” Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon said, using an acronym for Islamic State.
U.S. officials have said that there are hundreds of foreign fighters and thousands of Syrian Islamic State militants in SDF custody.
Sssooo way back when David Cameron was running Toryville I said that Tory policy regarding the disabled and immigration was reminiscent of the Nazis and some people said I was talking crazy. Now we find out that later their own ministers would say the same thing.
I'm used to this. It's not an arrogant thing to say, it's depressing. I knew Tony Blair was evil, I knew we were being lied to about Iraq, and I'm pretty sure Syria is just Iraq version 2.
Why do these things seem so damn obvious to me?
