Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Oh What A Feeling: ISIS Toyota Connection

The model most popular with Islamic State drivers seems to be the Hilux, similar to Tacomas and Land Cruisers. This overseas version is a mainstay in ISIS propaganda videos, often loaded to the brim with heavy weapons.

The company says the cars in the videos aren’t recent models, but ABC spoke to the Iraqi ambassador to the US, Lukman Faily, who said that in addition to re-purposing old vehicles, the terrorist group has been acquiring “hundreds” of “brand new” ones in recent years.

“This is a question we’ve been asking our neighbors,” the ambassador said. "How could these brand new trucks... these four-wheel drives, hundreds of them - where are they coming from?”

Some of the other cars paraded in victory parade videos include Mitsubishi, Hyundai and Isuzu. Read more...

One million dollar question: Can the US trust the ‘Free Syrian Army’?

Toyota has proven to be most popular vehicle with jihadists. Last year the US reportedly sent a fleet of Toyota trucks to militants from the Free Syrian Army. Many of the vehicles turned up in the hands of ISIL. On Monday a US military cargo plane air dropped around 50 tons of ammunition to insurgents.

Lost & Found: Did ISIS ‘find’ $420mn in ‘lost’ US military supplies in Afghanistan?

According to a recent Pentagon report, 156,000 pieces of hardware, including sophisticated weapons systems, vehicles and communications gear vanished into thin air in fiscal year 2013. The report also revealed that between 2006 and 2010, 133,557 pieces of equipment valued at $238.4 million could not be accounted for.
No matter how you slice it, that’s a lot of military hardware slipping out the back door. And since we are talking about the US Army here, where no general wants to lose a star or two over the question of inventory, it stands to reason that the figures have been greatly scaled back.
Karen Kwiatkowski, a retired US Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, confirmed the suspicion when she told RTthere’s probably a lot more missing than what’s been reported by this Inspector General’s report.”
