Time To Monitor ‘Devil Worshippers’?

Law enforcement authorities should investigate whether Sandy Hook killer Adam Lanza is connected to any radical devil worshipping sects locally or online, suggested this reporter and radio talk show host.

On WABC Radio’s “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” this host called for a federal devil worshipper watch list while advocating that the government monitor “radical domestic devil worshipping clans.”

The call was in response to a report that Lanza worshiped the “devil” and had an online page dedicated to “Satan,” according to former classmate Trevor L. Todd.

Lanza’s worshiping page had the word “Devil” written in red, Gothic-style letters against a black background, stated Todd, the UK Daily Mail reported.

The theme of so-called devil worship and Satanic-style “Goth” subculture has cropped up in numerous other mass killings.

“Lanza smashed his computer,” this radio host stated. “Clearly he is hiding something in his digital footprint. Was he a part of any larger Satanic or ritualistic subculture locally or online where he could have revealed his plans or could have even received support or encouragement in preparing for the killings?”

“It’s established fact that in the U.S. there have been numerous murders tied to radical devil worshipping sects and that some sects previously advocated human sacrifice. We need to probe whether Lanza was tied to any. Maybe he wasn’t, but these questions should at least should be asked.”

This host maintained that if Lanza had been a Muslim “we all know the discussion we’d be having right now would not focus on gun rights, psychological illness, drugs or violent video games.”

“We’d automatically be asking whether any Muslim killer was indoctrinated in a mosque or an online forum, whether he was motivated by radical Islam, whether he was tied to a terror group, whether he had any accomplices. We’d ask this the minute we found out the killer is Muslim.”

“Perhaps we should ask similar questions about Lanza given that there are radical sects within Satanism, some that may believe in human sacrifice and blood ritual.”

U.S. Benghazi Facility
May Have Been Established Illegally

Was the U.S. mission in Benghazi established in violation of international law?

According to a 39-page report released this week by independent investigators probing the Sept. 11 attacks at the diplomatic facility, the U.S. mission in Benghazi was set up without the knowledge of the new Libyan government.

“Another key driver behind the weak security platform in Benghazi was the decision to treat Benghazi as a temporary, residential facility, not officially notified to the host government, even though it was also a full-time office facility,” the report states.

“This resulted in the Special Mission compound being excepted from office facility standards and accountability under the Secure Embassy Construction and Counterterrorism Act of 1999 (SECCA) and the Overseas Security Policy Board (OSPB).”

The report, based on a probe led by former U.S. diplomat Thomas Pickering, calls the facility a “Special U.S. Mission.”

Until now, government descriptions routinely referred to the facility as a “mission,” while news media largely wrongly labeled the building a “consulate.”

While the report documents how the U.S. mission’s special “non-status” exempted the facility from State Department security standards, it is not immediately clear whether the mission was also exempt from the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, which governs the establishment of overseas missions.

Like most nations, the U.S. is a signatory to the 1961 United Nations convention.

Article 2 of the convention makes clear that the host government must be informed about the establishment of any permanent foreign mission on its soil: “The establishment of diplomatic relations between States, and of permanent diplomatic missions, takes place by mutual consent.”

According to the report, there was a decision “to treat Benghazi as a temporary, residential facility.”

However, the same sentence in the report noted the host government was not notified about the Benghazi mission “even though it was also a full-time office facility.”

Articles 12 of the Vienna Convention dictates, “The sending State may not, without the prior express consent of the receiving State, establish offices forming part of the mission in localities other than those in which the mission itself is established.”

If the Benghazi mission was a “full-time office facility,” it may violate Article 12 in that the mission most likely was considered an arm of the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, which served as the main U.S. mission to Libya.

Obama Campaign Official
Raises Money For Syrian Rebels

The former director of Muslim outreach for President Obama’s 2008 campaign is now raising money for a charity in the U.S. to fund the jihadist-tied Syrian opposition.

Mazen Asbahi, a Chicago lawyer, resigned from Obama’s first presidential campaign after the Wall Street Journal reported that he sat on the board of an Islamic investment group called the Allied Assets Advisors Fund. Also on the board was Jamal Said, an unindicted co-conspirator in the prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation, the Texas-based group that raised millions of dollars for the Hamas terrorist organization.

The Allied Assets Advisors Fund was itself a subsidiary of the North American Islamic Trust, which is directed by the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA.

ISNA was established in 1981 by activists from the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Muslim Students Association. ISNA was also named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land terrorism financing case.

ISNA was the subject of a terrorism investigation in December 2003 by the Senate Finance Committee, which looked into possible links between nongovernmental organizations and terrorist financing networks.

The official court documents in the Holy Land case named ISNA among “entities who are and/or were members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.”

Now Asbahi is back in the spotlight as the lawyer for the Syrian Support Group, which is raising money to fund the rebels attacking Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

Earlier this year, Asbahi applied to the U.S. government for a license to fund the Free Syrian Army.

There have been scores of reports worldwide that Al Qaeda and other jihad groups are among the ranks of the Free Syrian Army. It is well established that jihadists dominate the Syrian opposition and various Free Syrian Army branches.
