The Biden administration is chummy with the Islamic nation of Qatar. As a key U.S. ally in a world region where the U.S. is considered an abomination to humankind, Qatar has been gently rocked and cradled to keep the friendship alive. In remaining true to their Islamic roots, word on the street says Qatar is silently laughing at the gullible ignorance of Joe Biden and his half-witted staff. Rumor? You be the judge.
It should come as no great surprise that Qatar is being accused of frolicking beneath a lambskin blanket with some well-known anti-U.S. terrorist groups.
American journalists Steven Sotloff and James Foley were brutally beheaded with a dull jagged sword in 2014 in Syria. Their gruesome slayings were recorded for the entire world to gasp in horror at the fate that soon awaited them if they didn’t straighten up and fly right.
This isn’t over for Sotliff’s family. Their own investigations show that an Islamic State so-called judge took an $800,000 bribe from a prominent institution in Qatar to order the two executions. They’ve filed a federal lawsuit.
The reason for the lawsuit is simple. “We want to do everything we can to make sure no other family has to suffer what we have suffered,” said the family. If this means flushing out a few snakes, so be it.
Not previously reported is how federal investigators have been quietly checking out ties between Qatar’s reigning emirs half-brother, Khalid bin Hamad Al Thani, and an assortment of terrorist groups.
Because the investigation is ongoing, two grand jury investigators from the Southern District of New York spoke on terms of anonymity. They said they have eyes on Khalid Al Thani to see if he did in fact support al-Qaeda’s Syrian branch, Al Nusra, with money, supplies, and equipment.
Qatar and the Biden administration have an extremely strong relationship that, on the surface, appears to be both viable and advantageous. Per capita, Qatar is the wealthiest country in the world so its importance is unmeasured.
The nation played a crucial role in assisting the U.S. during the Afghan evacuations and rumor has it that they may soon be shipping enough oil to Europe to make up for the Russian fiasco.
Though it has yet to happen, Biden is banking on a little one-on-one Muslim-to-Muslim chat between Qatar and Iran being convincing enough to persuade the Iranians into reinstating some sort of nuclear deal that’ll probably never happen anyway.
“Qatar is a good friend and a reliable partner,” Biden said as he and Qatar’s main Muslim Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani broke bread together at the White House back in January. The two are working on a deal that could net Qatar $500 million worth of state-of-the-art MQ-9 Reaper drones. That’s an immense amount of firepower.
Here’s the thing. It was Qatar that led the charge to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad by overloading the bank accounts of the extremist groups that were out to dethrone the same guy that U.S. troops were fighting to protect. Two of those extremist groups were Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood of Syria.
Qatar is playing both sides of the fence. Sooner or later it’ll have to fall to one side or the other and the Biden administration is banking on a wing and prayer that it’ll be the right direction.
Sort of like guessing how many jellybeans are in a jar, let’s take a wild guess at how many Qatar-bought Syrian rebel bullets killed U.S. troops and innocent civilians. Even one is one too many.
Though the winner can’t yet be declared, Biden’s playing a dangerous game. The results of this trial and the ongoing investigation by the Feds will determine if Qatar is just another Persian Gulf country that should have never been trusted.
