Terrorism Expert: ISIS Is "Probably Cutting Videos" of Donald Trump's Response to Belgium Attacks

Donald Trump wasted no time in backing torture (again) after this morning's terrorist attacks in Brussels.

"Waterboarding would be fine" for Salah Abdeslam, one of the alleged participants in the massacre in Paris last November, Trump said on the Today Show. He's previously said he'd like to do "a hell of a lot worse" than waterboarding to terrorism suspects, and on Tuesday repeated his call to change the laws to allow further acts of torture: "If they could expand the laws, I would do a lot more than waterboarding. You have to get the information from these people."

But terrorism expert Malcolm Nance, the head of the Terrorism Asymmetrics Project and a veteran of Navy intelligence, took Trump to task for doing the propaganda work of ISIS.

"Good God, they're probably cutting videos of this right now," Nance said on MSNBC about Trump's comments. "Donald Trump right now is validating the cartoonish view that they tell their operatives...that America is a racist nation, xenophobic, anti-Muslim, and that that's why you must carry out terrorist attacks against them...It's irresponsible and it needs to stop."

Fox & Friends' Inadvertently Admits Fox Only Covers Terrorism When It Appears to Involve Muslims

Kilmeade Says "The Last 5,000 Terror Attacks" That Fox Has Covered Have Begun With "An Arabic Phrase." Meanwhile The Network Has A History Of Ignoring Right-Wing Homegrown US Terrorism

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): You know what [the Israelis] do? They profile.

LAURA INGRAHAM: Well, they profile and, I'm sorry, but we turned on the television this morning, I started watching you at 6am, it wasn't a Seventh Day Adventist who carried out the attack. No one in this country would think--

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): He screamed -- You know, the first thing we heard is, after screaming out an Arabic phrase, shots went out, and a bomb went off. That starts the last 5,000 terror attacks that we've opened up our show with over the last twelve years.

President Trump on Brussels: Close the borders and torture people. Problem solved.

“I would close up our borders to people until we figure out what’s going on,” he said on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.” [...]

"If they could expand the laws, I would do a lot more than waterboarding...have to get the information from these people.” [...]


Asked during his Fox appearance about what else he’d do in response to the attacks in addition to closing the southern border and banning Muslims, Trump said he give the American people a “pep talk.”

“I guess I would just talk to the people and give them, frankly, a pep talk,”
Trump said. “We need spirit in our country, okay.”

Wow - AIPAC president reads statement condemning Trump’s attack on Obama.

(JNS.org) Lillian Pinkus, the new president of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), on Tuesday morning slammed Republican presidential primary front-runner Donald Trump’s on-stage rhetoric about President Barack Obama the previous day as well as the AIPAC conference crowd’s reaction to Trump’s words.

Trump had earned a standing ovation on Monday for saying, “President [Barack] Obama in his final year. Yay.”

Without mentioning Trump by name, Pinkus said Tuesday that AIPAC takes “great offense” to verbal attacks that are levied against the president of the United States from the stage of the pro-Israel lobby’s annual policy conference.

“While we may have policy differences, we deeply respect the office of the president of the United States and our president, Barack Obama,” Pinkus, whose emotion was palpable, said.

“There are people in our AIPAC family who were deeply hurt last night,”
she said, lamenting that “so many applauded a sentiment that we neither agree with or condone.”

“Let us close this conference in recognition that when we say, ‘Come ‘Together,’ we still have a lot to learn from each other, and we still have much work to do, because broadening the base of America’s pro-Israel movement and unity is our strength,” said Pinkus, mentioning this year’s AIPAC conference tagline.
