Michael Flynn once claimed Arabic signs on southern border guide 'radicalized Muslims' into US

Source: CNN



(CNN)Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Donald Trump's pick to be his national security adviser, claimed in an August radio interview that Arabic signs were present along the United States border with Mexico to guide potential state-sponsored terrorists and "radicalized Muslims" into the United States.

Flynn further said in the interview he had personally seen photos of such signs in Texas.

A CNN KFile review of available information about the terror threat along the US-Mexico border could not corroborate Flynn's claim. CNN's KFile asked Flynn for clarification about the Arabic signs, but received no reply. A Trump transition spokesman declined to comment. A spokesperson for the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) "respectfully" declined to comment.

"I know from my friends in the Border Patrol in CBP that there are countries -- radical Islamist countries, state-sponsored -- that are cutting deals with Mexican drug cartels for some of what they call the 'lanes of entry' into our country," Flynn said in an interview with Breitbart News on SiriusXM radio. "And I have personally seen the photos of the signage along those paths that are in Arabic. They're like way points along that path as you come in. Primarily, in this case the one that I saw was in Texas and it's literally, it's like signs, that say, in Arabic, 'this way, move to this point.' It's unbelievable."

30. Whoa Bucky!

If that seems somehow a negative stereotype when you are posting on DU, something is wrong with the picture you're reading far more into than is there. But, admitting you are all of the above does tend to dodge the targeted RW bullets for you. Male, largely above sexist rants. White, all part of becoming a minority. Straight, okay, in no danger of resuming second class citizenry and having your family legally torn asunder. Christian, again, being on DU, probably one of the more empathetic ones.
VS!!!!
The negative RW sexist male, white supremacist, straight homophobe and so called "Christian" for whom the religion is nothing more than a hand-picked passage device to justify the sexist, supremacist, homophobic, xenophobic and "I got mine screw you" attitude.
Nothing the poster said put you in that second undesirable category.
P.S. I'm not new here, I'm nightscanner repackaged so pls don't "welcome me to DU".

4. I saw a "YIELD" sign on the highway this morning which is obviously telling people

to just give up to the radical Islamists. You can't fool me, I'm on to you Islamist forces of evil even here in a small town in Illinois and am reporting you to Ret. Gen. Flynn. I can even send him a picture if needed.

Do I really need the sarcasm tag?

How stupid do you have to be to believe this and to put it out there

I was on my way to USA but missed one of the signs now I'm stuck Mexico

Never learned to read maps, don't have a compass, can't plan things, can't ask directions. This guy doesn't have two brains cells that talk to each other

system (in fact the world's) is based on the Arabic model.

All of our science and maths are some kind of Islamist code.

So ISIS doesn't teach their operatives to use a compass, read a map, use the GPS on their cell phones?

Apart from which, I don't see a happy future for any third party trying to attach itself to the Zeta/Bandidos partnership.

28. Jesus on a tricycle!

Been living on the southern border for over 2 decades in El Paso. We already have a damned wall - many of us don't like it - and have been putting up with border paranoia stories and wing-nuttery for years upon years. Hell, when Rick Perry was running for governor, he claimed that cartels were blowing up cars in El Paso. This was pure bullshit, but it plays well to his base in the Fox Noise bubble. The truth is, the cartels have business to conduct, money to make, territory to hold and people to bribe. The last thing they want is a bunch of Muslim terrorists crossing the border in their area. The heat that would bring down on them from the US, including the military would be detrimental and devastating to their position. So in essence, we have the best front line against these terrorists that money and dope could buy - Mexican drug lords and the cartels they run.

This guy is nothing but a 3 star dipshit - more living proof that our general ranks are filled with idiots, millennialists and end-timers, and professional ass-kissers. We've seen how this plays out. The last National Security Adviser this far out of their element was Condi (nobody could imagine them using planes?) Rice. And in typical American fashion, she got promoted to Sec State after the biggest fuck-up in NSA history.

Genreral Flynn can go choke on a turd.
