Al Qaeda militants flee Iraq jail in violent mass break-out


www.reuters.com

(Reuters) - Hundreds of convicts, including senior members of al Qaeda, broke out of Iraq's Abu Ghraib jail as comrades launched a military-style assault to free them, authorities said on Monday.

The above is a story from SHFT which talks, quite poignantly about the failure of intelligence services to see this coming and react quickly enough to stop it.


While our government is supposedly preventing terrorism by searching grandma at airports, arresting kids for making jokes on the internet, deploying thousands of drones over America’s skies, and looking for lone wolves, they have failed at their absolute top priority: stopping actual terrorists from doing what terrorists do.

The fact that an unknown number of senior members of Al Qaeda, who we as a nation likely spent hundreds of millions of dollars and countless lives to capture, have been freed from prison in what can only be described as a premeditated coordinated attack is a complete failure of our foreign intelligence directives.


You can imagine the outrage that Americans can feel. While the government claims it's spying on you to protect you and fight terrorism, they are failing at the most basic premise of their mandate.
