Thread: If Trump was right about Obama being 'Founder of ISIS', who is founder of ISIS-K variant?

    Question If Trump was right about Obama being 'Founder of ISIS', who is founder of ISIS-K variant?

    Without the benefit of Trump's insightful tweets about origins of outfits like ISIS (vis-a-vis US Syria intervention), will the public ever know who is the Founder of 'ISIS-K'.. the latest variant that is suddenly dominating media headlines and appears poised to impact US Afghan intervention policy?

    Maybe just coincidence, headlines shifting again post Trump. Suddenly B-variant was in top headlines also this week.




    Member of ISIS ‘Beatles’ Cell Plans to Plead Guilty in Abuse of Hostages

    An upcoming change-of-plea hearing for Alexanda Kotey suggests he is cooperating with prosecutors and could provide details about victims.

    WASHINGTON — A notorious British member of the Islamic State who is facing federal charges over accusations that he helped jail and tortured Western hostages is preparing to plead guilty, according to a court notice filed late Tuesday.

    A terse filing in the public docket for the case against the man, Alexanda Kotey, announced the scheduling of a “change-of-plea hearing” for 5:30 p.m. Thursday before the judge overseeing the case, T.S. Ellis III of the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. He had initially pleaded not guilty.
    Mr. Kotey was part of an ISIS cell of four Britons called “the Beatles” — a nickname bestowed by their victims because of their accents — and known for their extreme brutality. Some of the group’s victims were beheaded for propaganda videos, including the American journalists James Foley and Steven J. Sotloff. Their bodies have not been found.

    ISIS Bomber Kills Dozens at Shiite Mosque in Northern Afghanistan

    The Islamic State Khorasan claimed responsibility for the attack in Kunduz, continuing its campaign of predation against the Hazara Shiite minority into a new era of Taliban rule.

    KABUL, Afghanistan — An Islamic State suicide bomber devastated a Shiite mosque in the northern Afghan city of Kunduz on Friday, killing dozens of worshipers in a deadly continuation of the terrorist group’s campaign against the Hazara minority.

    The massacre, while the mosque was crowded for Friday Prayer, was the group’s second attack against a mosque in just a few days. And it was the realization of Afghan Hazaras’ fears that the Islamic State’s predation would go unchecked under the rule of the Taliban, which itself preyed on the Hazara in the past.

    ISIS-K is a Sunni extremist group that has long targeted Shiite Muslims in Afghanistan, focusing heavily on the Hazara ethnic minority, which is predominantly Shiite. Most of Afghanistan is Sunni, and ethnic Pashtuns — who make up most of the Taliban’s ranks — are a plurality in the country.
    ISIS-K also staged an attack several days ago outside a mosque in Kabul, the capital, which killed several people.
