OUTRAGE: Jihadist Who Went Overseas to Help Terrorists Wage Jihad Gets $100 Fine, Probation

By Debbie Schlussel

The Obama Administration has a message for Americans who want to travel overseas to become jihadists and homicide bombers: if you’re caught, we’ll set you free and give you a $100 fine.



It’s truly an outrage that less than two weeks before American jihadists helped murder 72 people at a Nairobi, Kenya mall, another American-born Islamic terrorist was set free by the Obama “Justice” Department and given a small fine. Eric Harroun, a U.S. Army veteran of Arab descent, traveled to Syria, where he fought alongside Al-Qaeda-connected Free Syrian Army and Al-Nusra terrorists and engaged in jihad. He was finally arrested and returned here, reportedly by the Jordanians, and was indicted on federal criminal charges. But in the end, he was given a mere three years probation and a $100 fine. Yup, what a great message to send to American Islamic terrorists: you keep doing what you’re doing. We’ll look the other way.

Oh, and by the way, one of the two people who signed affidavits assuring America that Harroun wasn’t a terrorist was Elizabeth O’Bagy, who was recently exposed as a fake and a liar, and who is known to be associated with Al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria, herself. It’s based on her false information that John McCain and Barack Obama were ready to send more weapons and help to the Syrians and go to war with them. For that reason AND because of her lying about having a Ph.D. from Georgetown (she claimed she had one; she didn’t), O’Bagy was recently fired by the Institute for the Study of War. But, hey, this known serial liar is “reliable” enough to help a terrorist go free.

I guess it has something to do with the fact that–despite the deal with the Russians regarding alleged Syrian WMD–Obama and McCain still very badly want U.S. arms and funds to go to the same Al-Qaedaniks with whom Eric Harroun was in jihadi partnership. So, the Obama Justice Department can’t say they are terrorists when Obama, himself, John Kerry, and McCain keep telling us they are not terrorists. Or maybe it has something to do with the fact that this dung heap, Harroun, is a big “Palestine” activist (I wonder if the feds looked into whether he has HAMAS connections and/or has “fought” with that terrorist group).

Last week, 30-year-old Phoenix native Eric Harroun faced a possible sentence of life in prison after the Justice Department accused him of fighting in Syria on behalf of Al-Qaeda. . . . Harroun suddenly agreed to a plea deal yesterday, and his sentence is quite a bit shorter than life in prison — he’ll be released from jail, be placed on probation for three years, and has to pay a $100 fine. . . .



According to federal prosecutors, media outlets started talking about Harroun, and in one interview, Harroun described a battle in which he had been separated from his rebel group — many of whom were killed in action — and was picked up by another group, which he believed was Jabhat al-Nusra.

Although Jabhat al-Nusra also is fighting the Syrian regime, the U.S. government considers it a terrorist organization, due to its ties to al-Qaeda.

It’s amazing to me: people in America caught drunk driving, even if they didn’t injure or kill anyone, are sentenced to many more years than this Islamic terrorist who now roams America’s streets.

Only in America (and Canada and the UK and France and Switzerland and Dar Al-Scandinavia and all the other idiotic Western countries with zero common sense).

So, al Qaeda linked terrorists are slapped on the wrist but TEA Party groups in the USA are harassed by the IRS and American Patriots are considered extremists by DHS.

Dude! Where’s my country?!

The Animal House in Washington reigns… anyone surprised at anything this bunch approves?

If he was in my neighborhood, he wouldn’t be walking down my sidewalk on a dark night!

This is so incredulous I can’t even comment…..

Different Faces. Different uniforms. Different hypnotics.

The LEADER inspires. The FOLLOWERS fulfill their desires. Their SELF-ESTEEM blooms. The innocents are ignorant of their doom.

YOU are watching history’s worst moments on the verge of repetition HERE, THERE, and EVERYWHERE.

The “Little Darlings” who can get away with anything. Doubt it? Research CHEATING in colleges and universities.

Imagine this song being sung to AMERICA and how will you respond? I simply want some TRUTH, some HONESTY, and adherence to the Constitution. We are rotting from the inside and from the top down.

I’d like to know when that fraud Elizabeth O’Bagy reverted to Islam.

I’m keeping note of outrages like this but it just seems America gets more and more tolerant of the intolerant “Religion Of Peace”. It’s truly sickening.

Why are peeps listening to frauds like O’Bagy & not experts like DS??????

Wonder what might have happened had the FSA or A-N discovered he was a deep cover CIA dude or had a boyfriend back home…just curious…

It’s because this nation has become a herd of sheeple, with the exception of a few, who don’t have the testicular fortitude nor the grey matter to think for themselves. They need to be led around, spoon-fed dangerous psychobabble, and be rewarded with handouts for doing nothing.

I’ve seen this coming for a long time. As Deb always says, “The fish rots from the head down”. The vast majority of this bile comes from weenie waggers in the beltway and slowly makes its way down to the uninformed. Top that off with the family unit, as many of us once knew it, has long set on the horizon. There’s no discipline, no accountability, no responsibility….just do whatever you want because there are no longer consequences for actions, especially if your one of the followers drinking the kool-aid and gorging on the party line. Nobody wants to hear the truth nor be confronted with it; its too painful. This country is in for a huge, rude awakening and if they don’t think so, sit back and watch the show.

Regarding O’Bag ’em, Lerner and the rest of those political wenches, they get a free pass while the average person in service, if faced with that situation, would have been canned…no ifs, buts or ands. On top of that, they’d be facing criminal charges and fines with no hope of ever seeing a dime of retirement. It’s a travesty and a slap in the face to those of us who busted our asses tirelessly and honorably while they make a mockery of the system and pull out their “Double Standard” debit cards.

    Excellent response, INM! I’m with ya 100%!

    Skunky on September 25, 2013 at 8:36 pm

BTW….I exercised my First Amendment, while I still have it, and decided to sound off anyway.

IceNoMore on September 25, 2013 at 5:43 pm

Lets just hope innocent civilians don’t pay the real fine if this Islamo fascist gooby goober decides to put his newly acquired Syrian terror skills to use by blowing up a school bus or something.

Frankz on September 25, 2013 at 6:33 pm

You mean to tell me my own government thinks I’m a terrorist because I have a “Don’t Tread on Me” license plate on my car. But if I just go overseas dressed like a raghead and yell “Allahu Akbar death to Israel” I would get a slap on the wrist? What’s wrong with this picture folks.

Ken B on September 25, 2013 at 10:07 pm

Elizabeth O’Bagy — reminds me of the other young female scatterbrains of the moment like Torie Clark. You wonder who wound them up. And Georgetown? Is there anyone there who’s had or has the least bit of an independent thought? Even with a PhD? You go to Georgetown to learn how to be an effective opportunist.

And why prosecute terrorists rather than ‘drunk’ drivers? Going after terrorists doesn’t produce the revenue that the ‘drunk’ drivers do. And browbeating ‘drunk’ drivers gives all these crook politicians a way of posturing as moralists and lecturing to the population as a whole. Aren’t all citizens with enough financial means to drive potentially drunk drivers, just like we’re all potential racists, sexists, etc.?

Appear moral, raise money, and beat down the taxpayers yet one more way.

He should have been tried in a military court and shot.

Hi Debbie. Please do a little more research next time. Frankly I’m amazed an asset has to stay in jail for this long.

studmuffin on September 27, 2013 at 8:50 pm

Debbie – This is a transitional punishment. Soon, there will be no punishment. By the end of Obama’s second term, guys like this will get the Medal of Honor. You and I both know whose side Obama is on.
