Jailed jihadists on death row bragged to a Fox News correspondent who was given access to their prison cells for an on-camera interview how they had killed hundreds in the name of Allah – and the screams of suffering women and children didn’t really bother them.
A 25-year-old ISIS terrorist named Abu Omar, for example, told Fox how he oversaw a terror cell in Baghdad and carried out numerous bombings.
Omar said he first joined ISIS as a checkpoint guard in Mosul, overseeing the public lashings of women who weren’t properly veiled. After doing that a while, Omar said he was chosen to ultimately lead up a sleeper cell that was tasked with bombing public sites.
From Fox News:
“He calmly described how he would pick up a car laden with explosives, always from someone he hadn’t met before, and park it at a busy, pre-scouted location.
“‘I walked away, and called a number on my phone,’ he said.
“As Omar melted into teeming crowds and detonated the bomb, all that remained was to wait to learn how many innocent men, women and children his twisted handiwork killed or maimed.
“One bomb killed more than 100 people, including 30 women and children. Omar, who estimates he had a role in the deaths of 300, calmly described the screams and the chaotic aftermath.
“Now facing a death sentence, Omar – despite a rote admission of remorse utterly lacking in conviction – appears untroubled by his deadly deeds. He claimed he had a license from God to kill in the name of Islam, and still believes ISIS is justified in torturing and burning prisoners of its own.”
Another jailed ISIS terrorist, Kari, 27, said he served the group by distributing IEDs, improvised expolosive devices.
Again, from Fox News:
“Like Omar, he showed no remorse as he recounted fighting and even killing Americans. He described his battle as a global war, and said that during his time in ISIS, he believed the caliphate would take over the world.
“Alarmingly, Karim spoke of Americans he had met within the terror group. Two or three, he said, had been kept separate from the others and were part of a larger group of foreigners in charge of threats against the West.
“‘They were more radical than the others,’ he said of the Americans.
“Karim described the sleeper cell in which he served as a hierarchy where communications up the chain of command were kept purposefully controlled. The system is much like the one used by Al Qaeda, where meetings are arranged at a set time and place and if someone doesn’t appear — they consider it ‘burnt’ and the operation is scuttled.”
