Ignorant US Attorney: “We may never know what drove Maalik Jones to travel to Somalia and pledge allegiance to al Shabaab”


U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said: “We may never know what drove Maalik Jones to travel to Somalia and pledge allegiance to al Shabaab, a terrorist organization that has vowed to destroy America.”

Yes, it’s a real mystery! Could it have anything to do with his adhering to a religion that thrice commands believers to “kill them wherever you find them” (cf. Qur’an 2:191, 4:89, and 9:5)?

Nah, that couldn’t be it. It’s a religion of peace! Maybe he had a deprived childhood…

Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers and U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman for the Southern District of New York made the announcement. U.S. District Judge Paul G. Gardephe imposed Jones’s sentence.

“U.S. citizens who travel overseas to fight with a terrorist organization – which is what Jones did – betray our country and pose a serious threat to our national security,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers. “The National Security Division remains committed to committed to identifying and stopping terrorists like Jones, and we will hold them accountable. Credit goes to all those who worked so tirelessly to bring Jones to justice.”

“We may never know what drove Maalik Jones to travel to Somalia and pledge allegiance to al Shabaab, a terrorist organization that has vowed to destroy America,” said U.S. Attorney Berman. “But we do know that with today’s sentence, Jones is no longer a threat to America’s ideals.”…
