John McCain & The Most Wanted Terrorist in the World

Updated February 18, 2015

Added CBS News photo of man said to be Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS and "the most wanted terrorist in the world."


"The Most Wanted Terrorist in the World" - CBS News has released a photo of the man who became the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) while he served time at a U.S. military prison in Iraq in 2004. In the photo, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is pictured while being in-processed at Camp Bucca in early 2004.

NINE YEARS LATER - The man CBS says is "the most wanted terrorist in the world" strongly resembles this man, who met with Sen. John McCain in Syria in May 2013. Did John McCain meet with Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi?  We have a right to know who Sen. McCain met with in Syria.  Why won't McCain's office identify this man?

JOHN McCAIN AND THE TERRORIST LEADER OF ISIS

“The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.”
- Vladimir Lenin

"You don't contain these people. They're a virus."
- Sen. John McCain on ISIS, August 21, 2014


SO, WHO NEGOTIATES WITH TERRORISTS? Militants from the terrorist group known as Islamic State (IS, ISIL, or ISIS) have reportedly beheaded James Wright Foley, an American journalist held captive in Syria since November 2012.  Ibrahim al-Badri, the founder and so-called "Caliph of the Islamic State" met with Sen. John McCain in May 2013 although the U.S. government had him on a "Most Wanted" list with a $10 million reward for information leading to his capture. Why has John McCain not been prosecuted for meeting with terrorists?  Al-Badri's group was holding Foley when McCain met the terrorist leader in 2013.  James Foley's blood is on John McCain's hands.

Why has Sen. John McCain supported the gang of terrorists who behead innocent American journalists?  Why is a leader from the U.S. Congress meeting with and supporting groups of mad-dog fanatics in the Middle East; the very same groups who we now find ourselves at war with? Why is the U.S. waging war against the militant and extremist groups in the Middle East that it helped create and arm in the first place?

Sen. McCain is now calling for a dramatic increase in U.S. airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Iraq and said the attacks should also extend into Syria. 

McCain said the beheading of journalist James Foley by Islamic State militants should serve as a turning point in how the U.S. deals with the group:  "First of all, you've got to dramatically increase the airstrikes. And those airstrikes have to be devoted to Syria as well," he said.

But it was just last year that Sen. McCain was in Syria meeting with the very people who founded the terror group known as Islamic State in Syria.  Now he is calling for the U.S. military to wage war on them. What kind of sick game is this?

The terrorist group known in the U.S. media as Islamic State (IS) uses atrocities, such as the beheading of the American journalist James W. Foley, to make headlines and get the attention of the world. Americans are likely to be very confused by the fact that U.S. Senator John McCain met with the leader of this bizarre and savage terrorist group in Syria in May 2013. Why would a U.S. Senator meet with a terrorist who is on the U.S. State Department's "Most Wanted" list - with a $10 million bounty on his head? What's going on?

To get a better understanding of why Sen. McCain, the leading supporter of Israel and the Zionist War Agenda in the U.S. Congress, has supported funding and arming the terrorist army known as Islamic State, I recommend reading:

"John McCain, Conductor of the 'Arab Spring' and the Caliph" 
by Thierry Meyssan, VoltaireNet.org

 www.voltairenet.org/article185085.html

The following text contains extracts (indented paragraphs) from the Meyssan article: 


John McCain in Syria. In the foreground at right is Mouaz Moustafa, director of the Syrian Emergency Task Force and "expert" at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a Zionist think-tank. In the doorway, center, is Mohammad Nour, an al-Qaida kidnapper of 11 pilgrims.


Another photo shows more of the black-shirted man behind John McCain, who is allegedly the terrorist leader of the Islamic State group.


Is this the face of Ibrahim 
al-Badri?


Ibrahim al-Badri (a.k.a. Abu Du'a) had a $10 million reward on his head by the U.S. State Department when Sen. John McCain reportedly met with him in May 2013.


Ibrahim al-Badri is the leader, the so-called Caliph of the Islamic State.


A profile view of the man said to be Ibrahim al-Badri meeting with John McCain in May 2013

In May 2013, Senator John McCain made his way illegally to near Idleb in Syria via Turkey to meet with leaders of the "armed opposition". His trip was not made public until his return to Washington.  

This trip was organized by the Syrian Emergency Task Force, which, contrary to its title, is a Zionist organization led by a Palestinian employee of AIPAC.

In photographs released at that time, one noticed the presence of Mohammad Nour, a spokesman for the Northern Storm Brigade (of the Al-Nosra Front, that is to say, al-Qaeda in Syria), who kidnapped and held 11 Lebanese Shiite pilgrims in Azaz. Asked about his proximity to al-Qaeda kidnappers, the Senator claimed not to know Mohammad Nour, who may have snuck into the photo.

 
Sen. John McCain met with the heads of the "Free Syrian Army" in May 2013. In this photo McCain is seen speaking with the man (in dark shirt) said to be Ibrahim al-Badri, the founder and leader (i.e. "Caliph Ibrahim") of the Islamic State, the terrorist group that then held, and later executed, James Foley. As Meyssan points out in his article about John McCain, Ibrahim al-Badri, known under his nom de guerre as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, created the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) one month before this meeting. At the time of this meeting with John McCain, al-Badri had been on a U.S. government list of "Most Wanted" terrorists for 19 months, with a reward of $10 million to anyone who would assist in his capture.  So, what's going on here?

If we can see Brigadier General Idriss Salem, head of the Free Syrian Army, one can also see Ibrahim al-Badri (foreground on the left) with whom the senator is talking. Back from the surprise trip, John McCain claimed that all those responsible for the Free Syrian Army were "moderates who can be trusted" (sic).

However, since October 4, 2011, Ibrahim al-Badri (also known as Abu Du’a) was on the list of the five terrorists most wanted by the United States (Rewards for Justice). A premium of up to $10 million was offered to anyone who would assist in his capture. The next day, October 5, 2011, Ibrahim al-Badri was included in the list of the Sanctions Committee of the UN as a member of Al Qaeda.  

In addition, a month before receiving Senator McCain, Ibrahim al-Badri, known under his nom de guerre as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, created the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) – all the while still belonging to the staff of the very "moderate" Free Syrian Army… 

In no country in the world, regardless of their political system, would one accept that the opposition leader be in direct contact, and publicly friendly, with a very dangerous wanted terrorist.

CORRESPONDENCE WITH McCAIN'S PRESS OFFICE

To see if Sen. John McCain knew the name of the person he was speaking with, I contacted his press office in Washington, D.C. on August 26. The following is the correspondence with his press officer, Julie Tarallo.  As you can see from this correspondence, McCain's office was unable to provide the name of the man in the black shirt seen speaking with John McCain:

Subject: URGENT: Question about Person Speaking with Sen. McCain in Syria

Dear Ms Tarallo,

I have attached the photo of Senator McCain speaking with men associated with the Syrian opposition movement in May 2013.

My question is this: Who is the man in the black shirt in the lower left corner of the photo with whom Sen. McCain is speaking? If you do not know the name of this person how can you say that it is not Ibrahim al-Badri, as Thierry Meyssan has reported it to be?

This is what Thierry Meyssan has written about this person:

If we can see Brigadier General Idriss Salem, head of the Free Syrian Army, one can also see Ibrahim al-Badri (foreground on the left) with whom the senator is talking. Back from the surprise trip, John McCain claimed that all those responsible for the Free Syrian Army were "moderates who can be trusted" (sic).

Hi Christopher,

On background, no, this is a fighter in the Northern Storm Brigade, a Free Syrian Army-affiliated group with a long history of fighting against ISIS. The picture was taken during Senator McCain's May 2013 visit to Syria when he met with Free Syrian Army commanders from across the country, including the Northern Storm Brigade. After the meeting, ISIS actually issued a death threat against anyone who met with Senator McCain, as this story points out:http://eaworldview.com/2013/10/syria-spotlight-latest-fighting-isis-northern-storm-azaz/

Also, see this Reuters report from October 2013 about Northern Storm fighting against ISIS. It also cites an audio message released by ISIS which attacks Senator McCain as "the American pig":http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/10/02/us-syria-crisis-azaz-idUSBRE9910GJ20131002

And to demonstrate how truly absurd this allegation is, ISIS has already stated that Senator McCain is among their main adversaries, as it recently targeted him as “the enemy” and “crusader” in its first propaganda magazine - see story on that here: http://freebeacon.com/national-security/new-isil-mag-touts-ethics-of-execution-targets-sen-mccain/

Thanks,

Julie

Dear Julie,

Thank you for your response but I hope you understand that it is not enough to simply say that this person is "a fighter". I mean surely Senator McCain's security detail must have identified and vetted all the people he met during this meeting?

So, what is this person's name? I mean he was photographed talking with Senator McCain on a visit that was surely a dangerous mission, given all the hostility against the senator, as you point out.

Are we to believe that Senator McCain was meeting with fighters from the Syrian opposition who were not identified and checked prior to the meeting? Again, if you can't identify the person by his complete name, how can you say that it is not Ibrahim al Badri, as Thierry Meyssan says? Their faces are certainly quite similar.

With many thanks,

Christopher Bollyn

Dear Julie,

You wrote and said that the man in the black shirt is "a fighter in the Northern Storm Brigade, a Free Syrian Army-affiliated group with a long history of fighting against ISIS."

I watched a video made by TIME magazine about the Northern Storm Brigade from this website: http://www.trackingterrorism.org/group/azaz-northern-storm-brigade

The video is here: http://www.time.com/time/video/player/0,32068,2280140412001_2140288,00.html

At 4'45" into the video one of the speakers calls for the re-establishment of the Caliphate, which is what the Islamic State (IS, ISIS, ISIL) is meant to do. I don't see a lot of difference between the two, Northern Storm Brigade and IS, if you see what I mean.


A screen shot from a video made of the Northern Storm group, whose fighters met with John McCain in Syria, shows that the Northern Storm group calls for creating the Caliphate of the Islamic State, which is exactly what IS (ISIS, ISIL) did in 2014. It does not seem that there is any ideological difference between the fighters John McCain met with in May 2013 and the IS group, which reportedly beheaded the American journalist James Foley.

See attached photo from 4'45" of the video with translation of what he is saying.

Many thanks,

Christopher Bollyn
