President Barack Obama has resurrected ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ posters in his astroturfed fight against al Qaeda. But rather than displaying them on the walls down at the local post office, this ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ poster is boldly displayed on the website of the U.S. State Department.
The ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ poster appeared on the State Dept. website on the very day the Obamas departed for their Martha’s Vineyard holiday, but not to worry buzz about Bo flying on is own separate plane was destined to pick up the slack.
“The United States has offered a $10 million reward for information that helps authorities kill or capture Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi,” was the message that appeared on the State Dept. website, August 10, 2013.
“This reward is second only to information leading to Ayman al-Zawahiri, the chief of Al Qaeda’s (sic) network, and symbolizes our ongoing commitment to helping our partners in the region eliminate this threat from their territory,” the website notice boasts.
This is Uncle Sam’s response to the August 10 attacks in Baghdad that killed 69 people and injured more than 170. Ten explosions, which appeared to have been coordinated, were similar to attacks in Baghdad on the previous Tuesday in which 50 people were killed.
“The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms the cowardly attacks today in Baghdad. These attacks were aimed at families celebrating the Eid al-Fitr holiday that marks the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The terrorists who committed these acts are enemies of Islam and and a shared enemy of the United States, Iraq, and the international community.” (emphasis CFP’s)
The terrorist with the $10-million U.S. bounty on his head is al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, “a Specially Designated Global Terrorist under Executive Order 13224.” “He is also listed at the United Nations Security Council (as) 1267/1989 al-Qa’ida Sanctions Committee”.
“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, also known as Abu D’ua, is now based in Syria and has changed the name of AQI to the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS). He has taken personal credit for a series of terrorist attacks in Iraq since 2011, and most recently claimed credit for the operations against the Abu Ghraib prison outside Baghdad, the suicide bombing assault on the Ministry of Justice, among other attacks against Iraqi Security Forces and Iraqi citizens going about their daily lives.”
