An FBI translator, who held top-secret security clearance journey to Syria in 2014 and married an Islamic State terrorist.
According to court records, Daniela Greene lied to the FBI about where she was going and warned her new husband, Denis Cuspert, a German rapper turned Islamic jihadi, that he was under investigation.
Cuspert became a recruiter for Islamic terrorism.
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, 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 two years in federal prison. She was released last summer.
The FBI, in a statement to CNN, said as a result of Greene’s case it “took several steps in a variety of areas to identify and reduce security vulnerabilities. The FBI continues to strengthen protective measures in carrying out its vital work.”
The FBI did not identify what steps were taken and declined further comment.
Of course, the agency said that Greene went “rogue” and they were unaware of what she was doing. Somehow, I’m finding it harder and harder to believe these corrupt agencies. This is the same FBI that allows at least 22 known Islamic jihadi training camps in the united States of America continue to operate.
“I was weak and didn’t know how to handle anything anymore,” Greene said. “I really made a mess of things this time.”
“It’s a stunning embarrassment for the FBI, no doubt about it,” said John Kirby, a former State Department official. “…for her to be able to get in as an American, as a woman, as an FBI employee, and to be able to take up residence with a known ISIS leader, that all had to be coordinated.”
Assistant US Attorney Thomas Gillice said Greene had “violated the public trust, the trust of the officials who granted her security clearance, and the trust of those with whom she worked and, in doing so, endangered our nation’s security” and court records claim that Greene deserves “severe punishment.’
Gillice said that though her “conduct skirted a line dangerously close to other more serious charges,” she should be considered for a lighter punishment based on her cooperation.
This woman is guilty of treason against the united States of America. She aided and abetted a sworn enemy of the US. She should be dealt with as a traitor and given a traitor’s execution.
Instead, she was given a mere two-year prison sentence, which is more than 80% less that the average sentence handed down against people convicted of being involved in Islamic State terrorism.
Here is Greene’s timeline beginning with her joining the FBI.
