Obama FBI Employee Goes Rogue Marries ISIS Terrorist

Our friend Patrick Poole, one of our greatest independent resources on Islamism and Muslim terrorism, sent us a clip of a recent CNN story on Daniela Greene, an FBI translator with a top-secret security clearance who traveled to Syria in 2014 and married a key ISIS operative she had been assigned to investigate.

Greene's saga, which has never been publicized, exposes an embarrassing breach of national security at the CNN reportFBI—an agency that allegedly has made its mission rooting out ISIS sympathizers across the country.

It also raises questions, said CNN’s Scott Glover, about whether Greene received favorable treatment from Justice Department prosecutors who charged her with a relatively minor offense, then asked a judge to give her a reduced sentence in exchange for her cooperation, the details of which remain shrouded in court-ordered secrecy.

Because it turns out that Greene lied to the FBI about where she was going and warned her new husband he was under investigation, according to federal court records.

The man Greene married was no ordinary terrorist.

He was Denis Cuspert, a German rapper turned ISIS pitchman, whose growing influence as an online recruiter for violent jihadists had put him on the radar of counter-terrorism authorities on two continents.

In Germany, Cuspert went by the rap name Deso Dogg. In Syria, he was known as Abu Talha al-Almani. He praised Osama bin Laden in a song, threatened former President Barack Obama with a throat-cutting gesture and appeared in propaganda videos, including one in which he was holding a freshly severed human head.

Within weeks of marrying Cuspert, Greene, 38, who was born in Czechoslovakia and raised in Germany, seemed to realize she had made a terrible mistake. She fled back to the US, where she was immediately arrested and agreed to cooperate with authorities. She pleaded guilty to making false statements involving international terrorism and was sentenced to a mere two years in federal prison. She was released last summer and her story is just now coming to light.

CNN said Americans convicted of crimes involving ISIS have served, on average, slightly over 13 years in prison.

Does anyone say “cover-up” about now?

Greene moved to the US as a young adult who'd married an American soldier, and attended college at Cameron University in Oklahoma and graduate school at Clemson University.

In 2011, Dani, as she was nicknamed, became a contract linguist for the FBI.

In January 2014, she was put on the case of a German terrorist known as 'Individual A,' who was Cuspert.

According to the UK Daily Mail’s Kiri Blakeley, Cuspert was a rapper who had middling success in Germany under the name Deso Dogg, and whose career highlight was opening for rapper DMX in 2006.

In 2010, a near death experience in a car accident saw him quit rapping and turn to Islam. He rapidly accelerated to radicalization, and in 2013, entered Syria.

Meanwhile, Greene, as part of her job, was tracking Cuspert's communications and gained access to several of his online accounts and phone numbers. One Skype number she kept sole access to.

On June 2014, Greene told the FBI she was going on vacation to visit her family in Germany.

Instead, she flew to Turkey and then Gaziantep, near the Syrian border.

There, she met up with Cuspert and married him, despite still being married to her American soldier husband.

Meanwhile, says Kiri Blakeley, her new husband was seen on video beating a corpse with a sandal.

In August, Greene was somehow able to get out of Syria and back to the US, where she was arrested.

In a case that was largely kept sealed and private, Greene pleaded guilty in December and was sentenced to two years in prison.

In October 2015, the Pentagon said Cuspert was killed in an air strike, but nine months later, decided he was still alive reports the Daily Mail’s Kiri Blakeley.

The Daniella Greene saga brings to mind a moment in Ginni Thomas’ interview with former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova’s that we told you about yesterday.

FBI Director James Comey, among many Obama holdovers, is someone diGenova specifically called “dangerous” and who should have been replaced by President Trump.

Clearly, Joe diGenova is right. The Greene case shows the incredible level of dysfunction at the Obama-Comey era FBI, both in its security clearance procedures and, at the leadership and operational levels, in its understanding of the threat Islamism poses to America and constitutional liberty.
