“Jihadi John,”, a.k.a. 26-year-old Brit Mohammed Emwazi, better find a cave to hide out in real fast-like – soon to be former Attorney General Eric Holder claims the United States is preparing to “hunt” him down Old West-style. Cue the Bon Jovi.
Born in Kuwait, Emwazi actually grew up in London. He’s strongly believed to be the masked man in the beheading videos of U.S. journalists Steven Sotloff and James Foley, as well as in the videos of aid workers Peter Kassig (U.S.) and Brit David Haines, not to mention Alan Henning, a British taxi driver who was murdered, as well. The masked man in all those videos spoke with a British accent.
Whether it’s through the use of our military, through the use of our law enforcement capacity, if you harm Americans, it is the sworn duty of every person in the executive branch to find you and hold you accountable.
It doesn’t matter where you are, we’ll find you, we’ll hunt you down, and we will hold you accountable.
Holder even said he “wouldn’t put anything off the table” when questioned as to whether U.S. troops would possibly be deployed to carry out the international bounty. Hell, Dog the Bounty Hunter’s probably willing. Get that man a passport, toss him on a plane and televise the hunt live during prime time. That’s a hot, ‘Merican ticket. Someone get A&E on the phone.
Any time any American is harmed anywhere in the world, the United States government is going to be going after that person. And eventually, if you hurt an American, you’re going to be brought to justice in some fashion.
Funny how that rule doesn’t seem to apply within the borders of the United States. Police officers can gun down anyone they want with virtually no repercussions, but a radicalized individual can gruesomely murder a few folks on the other side of the world and the President will consider sending in troops to hunt down the killer like a starved fox in the henhouse.
When there are people anywhere in the world who commit appalling and heinous crimes against British citizens, we will do everything we can with the police, with the security services, with all that we have at our disposal to find these people and put them out of action.
U.S. intelligence claims British security officials have known the identity of “Jihadi John” for months, but the Washington Post only made the information public as of Thursday.
The hunt will soon be on, and several countries are looking to demonstrate their muscle and intolerance for such vile intimidation through such gruesome violence, and if they have to kill to do it, they sure will, better believe it.
It’s looking like high noon approaches rapidly for “Jihadi John,” and it’s going to take a lot more than a knife for him to fend off America’s six-shooters. More than likely he will go down in a blaze, but you can bet absolutely it will not be in glory.
