US Coast Guard Officer Held in Alleged Mass Murder Plot

A U.S. Coast Guard officer who federal prosecutors allege stockpiled weapons to launch a spree of domestic terrorism and mass murder will appear in court Thursday.

Police arrested Christopher Paul Hasson last week on drug and weapon charges after finding a large stash of guns, ammunition and drugs in his suburban Washington apartment.

Federal prosecutors are expected to argue at Thursday’s bail hearing that Hasson must remain in jail until his trial.

“The defendant intends to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country,” the government’s court filing says. It calls Hasson a “domestic terrorist bent on committing acts dangerous to human life that are intended to affect governmental conduct.”

Along with the weapons and drugs, investigators found documents in which Hasson allegedly calls for “focused violence” and expresses a desire to “establish a white homeland.” 

He is said to have written about ways to “kill almost every last person on Earth,” and called the idea of a biological attack and poisoning the nation’s food supply “interesting.”

Investigators also found a hit list of liberal politicians Hasson allegedly singled out for assassination, including U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a number of Democratic presidential candidates. CNN and MSNBC television personalities were also included on the list.

Prosecutors said they believed Hasson was not just fantasizing but was serious about his plans. They said he was a longtime white nationalist and neo-Nazi.

They said he spent time studying the manifesto of far-right Norwegian killer Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people during a 2011 massacre.

Hasson has a public defender who as of late Wednesday afternoon had yet to comment on the charges.

Trump Administration Says US-Born Jihadist Can’t Return

The United States said Wednesday that it would refuse to take back a U.S.-born Islamic State propagandist who wants to return from Syria, arguing that she is no longer a citizen. 

 

The Trump administration’s refusal to admit Hoda Muthana, 24, could set precedent and face legal challenges, because it is generally extremely difficult to lose US citizenship. 

 

“Ms. Hoda Muthana is not a U.S. citizen and will not be admitted into the United States,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement. “She does not have any legal basis, no valid U.S. passport, no right to a passport, nor any visa to travel to the United States.”  

“We continue to strongly advise all U.S. citizens not to travel to Syria,” he added. 

Pompeo did not elaborate on the legal rationale for why the Alabama native, who is believed to have traveled to Syria on her U.S. passport, was not considered a citizen or where she should go instead. 

 

Pompeo’s statement on Muthana — one of the comparatively few U.S.-born jihadists amid the hundreds of Europeans to have joined the ranks of the Islamic State group in Syria — is at odds with his calls on other countries to take back and prosecute their own jihadist nationals. 

 

Just this weekend, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to chastise European allies who have not taken back IS prisoners caught in Syria. 

US-born, then radicalized

Muthana was born in the United States to parents from Yemen who became naturalized American citizens, according to the Counter Extremism Project at George Washington University, which has identified 64 Americans who went to join IS in Syria or Iraq. 

 

In late 2014, shortly after moving to Syria, Muthana posted on Twitter a picture of herself and three other women who appeared to torch their Western passports, including an American one. 

 

She went on to write vivid calls over social media to kill Americans, glorifying the ruthless extremist group that for a time ruled vast swaths of Syria and Iraq. 

 

But with IS down to its last stretch of land, Muthana has said she renounced extremism and wanted to return home. 

 

Muthana, who has been detained by U.S.-allied Kurdish fighters, said that she had been brainwashed by reading social media as a closeted teenager in Hoover, Ala. 

 

“To say that I regret my past words, any pain that I caused my family and any concerns I would cause my country would be hard for me to really express properly,” she said in a note to her lawyer reported by The New York Times.  

She was married three times to male jihadists and has a toddler son. 

Hard to lose citizenship

The U.S. decision on Muthana comes amid rising debate in Europe on the nationality of extremists. Britain recently revoked the citizenship of Shamina Begum, who similarly traveled to Syria and wants to return to her country of birth. 

 

Britain asserted that she was entitled to Bangladeshi citizenship because of her heritage, but the Dhaka government on Wednesday denied that she was eligible, leading her to become effectively stateless. 

 

U.S. citizenship is significantly more difficult to lose. The 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, ratified in 1868 after the Civil War as slavery was abolished, establishes that anyone born in the country is a citizen with full rights. 

 

In recent years, it has been considered virtually impossible to strip Americans of citizenship, even if they hold dual nationality. 

 

The U.S. Supreme Court in the landmark 1967 Afroyim decision rejected the government’s attempt to revoke the nationality of a Polish-born naturalized American after he voted in Israel. 

 

And last year a federal judge rejected a government attempt to strip the nationality of a Pakistani-born naturalized American who was convicted in a plot to blow up the Brooklyn Bridge. 

 

But Trump has campaigned on a hard line over immigration and raised the prospect of ending birthright citizenship ahead of last year’s congressional elections. 

 

In 2011, President Barack Obama ordered drone strikes that killed two Americans in Yemen — prominent al-Qaida preacher Anwar al-Awlaki and his 16-year-old son — but did not believe it was possible to revoke citizenship.

US Sanctions Indian National, Declaring Him a Drug Trafficker 

The Trump administration on Wednesday imposed sanctions on Indian national Jasmeet Hakimzada, declaring him a major foreign drug trafficker. 

Six other people and entities were also sanctioned, including Hakimzada’s parents, who allegedly help him run his operation.

“Jasmeet Hakimzada’s global drug trafficking and money laundering network has been involved in smuggling heroin and synthetic opioids around the world,” a senior Treasury Department official said.

Hakimzada lives in the United Arab Emirates. He is accused of running a worldwide drug trafficking ring that smuggles heroin, cocaine, opioids and other substances into the United States, Australia, Britain and New Zealand.

Treasury said he has laundered hundreds of millions of dollars through a trading company in the UAE.

A U.S. federal grand jury indicted Hakimzada in 2017 on 46 counts of drug trafficking and money laundering. 

Under the sanctions, all of Hakimzada’s assets in the U.S. are frozen and U.S. citizens are barred from doing any business with him.

Слідком Росії порушив справу через вибухи в окупованому Донецьку

У Росії заявили про порушення кримінальної справи через вибухи в підконтрольному угрупованню «ДНР» Донецьку. Як повідомляє 20 лютого російський Слідчий комітет, справу відкрили за статтею про «міжнародний тероризм».

Про два потужні вибухи в окупованому Донецьку місцеві жителі повідомили проекту Радіо Свобода Радіо Донбас.Реалії 18 лютого.

Ресурси підтримуваних Росією бойовиків повідомляли про три вибухи в Донецьку, один з яких стався неподалік від захопленої адміністрації міста. В угрупованні «ДНР» заявляють, що поранених і загиблих внаслідок вибухів не було.

ОБСЄ на своєму сайті підтвердила, що щонайменше два вибухи сталися поблизу місця базування її спостерігачів.

У МЗС Росії заявили, що вибухи в Донецьку схожі на теракт, в якому 31 серпня 2018 загинув лідер бойовиків Олександр Захарченко.

Українська влада і силові структури офіційно вибухи в Донецьку не коментували.

З пляжу в Одесі три місяці не прибирають буксир, який прибило до берега

Буксир «Паралель», який прибило до одеського пляжу «Дельфін» в листопаді минулого року, досі не прибрали. Як розповіли Радіо Свобода в СБУ і в одеській філії Адміністрації морських портів України, щоб прибрати буксир знадобиться близько півмільйона гривень, а власник судна прибирати його відмовляється.

«Розповсюдження нафтопродуктів на сьогодні не відбувається, але вони там залишилися, і судно, без сумніву, є екологічно небезпечним. Його необхідно звідси прибирати і така можливість є. Це робиться спеціальними плавучими кранами за допомогою тросів. Робити щось із ним можна тільки з дозволу слідчого», – повідомив начальник юридичного відділу одеської філії Адміністрації морських портів України (АМПУ) Дмитро Подорян.

Водночас у прес-службі одеського відділення СБУ Радіо Свобода повідомили, що слідчий ухвалив рішення про передачу судна на збереження власнику, який з рішенням ознайомлений, але відмовляється його виконувати. Саме судно вже не перебуває під арештом, зазначили в СБУ.

Майбутнє буксира обіцяють вирішити 22 лютого на спільній нараді військової прокуратури, СБУ, АМПУ, інших державних установ та уповноважених осіб.

У мерії заявляють, що до початку курортного сезону буксир мають прибрати з пляжу.

Буксир «Паралель» вийшов з порту Гола Пристань Херсонської області в листопаді 2018 року і потрапив у шторм у Чорному морі. Команда відчепила баржу із вантажем та подала сигнал SOS. Людей врятував танкер, який прибув на сигнал, а баржу та буксир віднесло до Одеси та прибило до різних пляжів. За даними місцевих ЗМІ, буксир прямував до одного з портів Євросоюзу. На баржі, яку він тягнув за собою і яку прибило до берегу в Одесі, правоохоронці знайшли 10 тисяч пачок сигарет. На вантаж наклали арешт. СБУ відкрила кримінальну справу за фактом контрабанди та порушення правил несення прикордонної служби.
