via State Dept Press Release.
Senior ISIL Border Chief Abu-Muhammad al-Shimali has been associated with ISIL, formerly known as al-Qaida in Iraq, since 2005. He now serves as a key leader in ISIL’s Immigration and Logistics Committee, and is responsible for facilitating the travel of foreign terrorist fighters primarily through Gaziantep, Turkey, and onward to the ISIL-controlled border town of Jarabulus, Syria. Al-Shimali and the ISIL Immigration and Logistics Committee coordinate smuggling activities, financial transfers, and the movement of supplies into Syria and Iraq from Europe, North Africa, and the Arabian Peninsula. In 2014, al-Shimali facilitated the travel from Turkey to Syria of prospective ISIL fighters from Australia, Europe, and the Middle East, and managed ISIL’s processing center for new recruits in Azaz, Syria.Interesting isn't it?
Before we saw foreign recruits pouring into Syria. Lately? Yeah if you haven't been paying attention you would have missed it, but ISIS has changed course and is now telling all would be volunteers to stay in their home countries and carry out terrorist acts.
Which leads me to this. Why would a guy that's in charge of Logistics and Immigration suddenly show up on the State Depts radar?
I told you my thinking in the title. This is the real mastermind of the attacks in Paris. Not some idiot, blood thirsty semi-adult....no....the real brains behind the op weren't even in France.
The named mastermind is simply being used by both sides as a scapegoat. By Western Security/Intel agencies to placate the public and to let them believe they're safe...and by ISIS to deflect attention from the real people that should be hunted down like dogs.
