ISIS bride dolled up sex slaves to prepare them for sexual assaults

A 29-year-old informant who helped the CIA hunt an ISIS leader is accused of putting makeup on women and underage girls before they were sexually assaulted.
According to The U.K. Sun, Nisrine Assad Ibrahim — better known as Umm Sayyaf — allegedly helped capture American aid worker Kayla Mueller and nine Yazidi women and underage girls, who were later reportedly sexually assaulted by ISIS leaders.
The Sun reported human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, wife of actor George Clooney revealed Ibrahim’s alleged deeds to the United Nations security council last month.
Clooney said Ibraham allegedly locked the women “in a room, instigated their beatings and put makeup on them to ‘prepare them for rape.’”
Clooney asked the UN security council that Ibrahim be transferred to the United States to face persecution.
The Guardian reported Ibrahim helped the CIA and Kurdish intelligence in February 2016 to pinpoint the hideout location of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Despite her help in hunting Baghdadi — who remains at large — Ibrahim has been sentenced to death in Iraq and will likely be never released from custody.

Canadian ISIS fighter details plot to smuggle jihadis into U.S.

A Canadian ISIS fighter has detailed how the death cult planned to smuggle terrorists into the U.S. over the Mexican border.
A Canadian ISIS fanatic has revealed the secret plot to smuggle jihadis into the U.S. from Mexico and unleash carnage.
The chilling confession was revealed by the International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism (ICSVE) and published in Homeland Security Today.
ISIS fighter Abu Henricki — a dual Canadian-Trinidadian citizen — revealed last month he was sought out by the death cult’s leadership.
The terrorists wanted their chosen killers to take a route through Central America, using English speakers and other Westerners to cross into the U.S.

Financial institutions were the primary targets, according to Fox News.
“ISIS has organized plots in Europe with returnees so it seems entirely plausible that they wanted to send guys out to attack. The issue that makes a North American attack harder is the travel is more difficult from Syria,” Anne Speckhard, who co-conducted the study as the director of ICSVE and Adjunct Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Georgetown University, told Fox News.
“So the idea that they would instead use people who were not known to their own governments as having joined ISIS might make it possible for them to board airplanes.”
Henricki was allegedly drawn to the caliphate in Syria to be an ISIS fighter but a chronic illness apparently dashed those dreams.

Instead, Islamic State’s intelligence arm “invited” him to join other Trinidadians to take part in the attacks.
The object?
“Cripple the U.S. economy.”
According to the report, Henricki claimed he would travel from Puerto Rico to Mexico before crossing the Rio Grande.
“The plan came from someone from the New Jersey state of America. I was going to take the boat from Puerto Rico into Mexico. He was going to smuggle me in,” he told investigators, adding Wall Street was the final destination.
“They wanted to use these people (to attack inside the U.S.) because they were from these areas,” Henricki said.
But Henricki revealed he ended up backing out and for his good sense was thrown into an ISIS prison and tortured.
His wife — also a Canadian — was caged in the women’s prison.
He told the scholars that the plot is defunct as most of the potential participants are all dead.
A representative from Canada’s Global Affairs was not immediately able to respond to Fox News for comment.
ISIS 'no longer a quasi-state' but ideology 'alive and well': Canadian general

CALGARY — Canada’s former commander in Iraq says the Islamic State may have been defeated on the battlefield, but the militant group remains alive and well as an insurgency and could still wield strong influence in the war-torn region.
From June 2018 until last month, Brig.-Gen. Colin Keiver served as commander of Joint Task Force Impact, responsible for the Canadian Armed Forces counter-Daesh mission in the Middle East. Daesh is the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State.
“Daesh or ISIS in Iraq or northeast Syria has been defeated in the sense that they are ,” said Keiver in an interview with The Canadian Press.
“They no longer hold any ground, but they are absolutely still alive and well in the background … seeking to expand their influence and undermine the governments of Iraq and other nations.”
Keiver points to the growth of the Daesh ideology in the Pacific, in Indonesia and in Mali. He said these aren’t individuals who have fled Iraq.
“This ideology resonates with certain people for certain reasons, and they latch onto it and they use it as a means to push their agenda and … the terrorism they’re doing,” he said.
“The ideology has in no way at all been defeated. We are a long ways away from the complete elimination of violent extremist organizations in the world.”
The Iraqi government has been criticized for failing to provide basic services such as water and electricity to its citizens and for not cracking down on widespread corruption and discrimination against certain ethnic groups.
Those factors were cited as key contributors to the rise of the Islamic State in 2014. The group used the grievances to gather support and take control of large swaths of territory.
Keiver said Iraq has progressed to a point where security has improved enough that the government can start focusing on improving basic services. But he notes Iraqis won’t be patient for long.
“It’s bought them time and now with that time they need to act in other areas. It is now very much up to the government of Iraq to come together in peace now and start making things happen in the same way they came together in 2014 to defeat Daesh,” he said.
“Summer will be a test for them … How will the government of Iraq react to protests if they happen.”
The Canadian military contingent includes 850 troops spread out across the region. Among them are military trainers, special-forces soldiers and medical personnel in Iraq, trainers in Jordan and Lebanon, and crews with transport planes in Kuwait.
The federal government recently extended the mission to March 2021. Keiver said he has no idea what Canada’s role in the future will be, but he predicts Iraq is going to require ongoing international assistance for the foreseeable future.
“It’s a safe assumption to state that there will be a continuing requirement for assistance in these areas and areas we haven’t even thought of yet,” Keiver said.
“When will we leave Iraq? I don’t know. All I know is that it was the government of Iraq that asked us for help and we responded to that need.”
Thankfully otherwise the war on terrorists would be 'winding down' rather than 'up'.
