The FBI used two confidential informants and surveillance of the alleged plotter's WhatsApp account to reveal plans to smuggle assassins into the U.S. to murder the former president, according to a search warrant application discovered by Forbes.

To be fair, if you're an ISIS member, you should thank the prophet (PBUH) that he directed the invasion of Iraq.

Had GWB not done that, then Saddam would have continued to keep his boot on the throat of the elements that would later become ISIS.

If ISIS wanted to assassinate someone, they should have gone after Obama. It was Obama that gave the go-ahead for Operation Imminent Resolve, which was the effort to destroy ISIS. And it was highly effective.

They should also include Trump on their Ramadan card list, as Trump attempted three times to end the operation, twice while I was over there. The last time he was successful, but fortunately that was after the Islamic State had been destroyed and the impact was likely far less than if Trump had successfully pulled the US out when ISIS still controlled territory.

To be fair, you should've read the fine article.

I don't want him to be assassinated.

I want him to get a fair trial before he's imprisoned for the rest of his miserable life.

"The alleged plot organizer had been in the U.S. since 2020"

Good on the Biden administration on breaking up the plot after the previous guy failed to keep the terrorist out of the country.

Source is a FBI confidential informer so it could be another FBI instigated affair.

Now it's time for the GQP to talk about J6 where 7 people died and 160 police were hurt in an attempted violent coup to overthrow a Legally elected government.

So... how come there is still an ISIS trying to kill a former president?

A more accurate assessment would be that the US was "highly effective" trashing a lot of weddings, many by mistake, and slaughtering more innocent civilians than ISIS operators of any kind, rank, or association.

Obviously, it was messy and noisy but apparantly not effective because here we are.

I sort of felt that way too when I first got over there. My assessment was that much of the territory controlled by the Islamic State was basically territory occupied by an army that the locals wanted no part of. I was wrong, and we found out the hard way when the SDF attempted to launch a final assault on the MERV. They got thier asses kicked.

It turns out that the MERV was to ISIS what Bavaria was to the National Socialists. It was their ideological homeland. And they fought for every inch of it.

In any case, ISIS the organization isn't going anywhere. But the Islamic State no longer exists.

What a twisted misunderstanding of ISIS and "the elements that became ISIS". I don't have the time to educate you on all the ways you are wrong in that post. I think it is literally everything though.

Good to know their is now a window into WhatsApp for the good folks in the 3 letter agencies to spy on you now.

Why would ISIS be upset with BushJr.

If not for his war of terror on the Middle East, destabilizing Iraq, they could have never formed.

This was more likely an aesthetic reaction to GW's later dog portrait paintings.

Which is reasonable.

It was the painting of his feet while in the bath. Something about throwing shoes and bare feet get ISIS and Boaz crazy.

Yeah because to a moron like you, that's more plausible than someone hating him for blowing up their part of the world.

Considering that there was a recent assassination attempt it sounds more like you are putting lipstick on that pig in order to claim some sort of victory in a tragic loss not to mention infliction of human misery on ... so... many... PEOPLE.

For 20 straight years... no make that 30... let's start with "Desert Storm" the entire world has watched the televised adventures of two super powers getting their assets kicked via civilian resistance. Ukraine is just another chapter in the saga... only this time it's the Ruskies turn again.

Well waddaya know... two giant emperors with no clothes... mud wrestling.

Meanwhile, millions of widows, orphans, cripples, and child prostitutes later... someone is still trying to kill GWBushturd... who is nothing a political crime boss that used the US military to get that man who tried to kill his pappy.

Nothing is enough for you.

You have a weird idea of "highly effective".

pssssst... Asia is kicking our ass from within. Now we're shooting at each other in alarming numbers.

It is time to learn to live with assassinations.
