Is Terry Holdbrooks aka Mustafa Abdullah, a propaganda agent for the sworn enemies of the United States of America? That is a question for you and our government to answer.
ALAN KORNMAN In August 2002, Terry C. Holdbrooks Jr. (19), aka Mustafa Abdullah, enlisted in the US Army. In June of 2003, Mr. Holdbrooks first deployment was to Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp (GITMO) as a prison guard. Mr. Holdbrooks served as a military police officer with the rank of Specialist in the US Army between 2002 and 2005, attached to the 252nd Military Police, and later assigned to the 463rd MP Company.
Is Terry Holdbrooks A Traitor?
Six months into his GITMO assignment, Mr. Holdbrooks embraced his Sunni Muslim al-Qaeda terrorist detainees ideology by joining their ranks as a new revert/convert to Islamic doctrine and theology. Islamic doctrine teaches that all people are born Muslim and revert back to their original state when they accept Islam, thus they are referred to as Muslim reverts.
Mr. Holdbrooks articulated an important revelation during his Dec 12, 2014 lecture at the American Muslim Community Center Mosque in Longwood, FL relating to the behavior of the al-Qaeda detainees when he accepted Islam as his new way of life. Muslim terrorists are taught to play dumb when they are taken captive, that was until a non-Muslim guard converted to Islam. Mr. Holdbrooks says, “Detainees came out of the woodwork and most all could speak English as they were celebrating his becoming a Muslim.”
The detainees ability to speak english is important, most detainees hide this fact from their American captors hampering interrogations and costing American lives in lost intel. Mr. Holdbrooks makes no mention of reporting this incredibly valuable intelligence to his superiors. Mr. Holdbrooks has picked sides in our military engagement with Islamic Jihad befriending his Al Qaeda sympathetic detainees Shaker Aamer, Ahmed Errachidi, and countless other(s).
Terry Holdbrooks Hates His Fellow American Soldiers
Mr. Holdbrooks does not hold his fellow American soldiers in as high regard as he does his al-Qaeda and Taliban terrorist detainees. Mr. Holdbrooks says, “I was questioning things from day one”, “I didn’t have a very high impression of my colleagues,” he says. Many of them were “ridiculous Budweiser-drinking, cornbread-fed, tobacco-chewing drunks, racists and bigots…who blindly follow orders, and within months stopped talking to them altogether…”
Mr. Holdbrooks explains his fascination with how the Muslim detainees would always appear happy embracing their Islamic way of life, under the harshest of situations. Terry Holdbrooks couldn’t understand why he felt miserable inside, and his Al Qaeda and Taliban detainees seemed to be at peace with themselves.
The Army would later say that Mr. Holdbrooks has a personality disorder and was released before fulfilling his full commission. In doing so – Terry Holdbrooks transformed himself into the marketable GITMO Guard Who Became a Muslim.
Mr. Holdbrooks says at the Longwood, FL Mosque that, “92% of the Gitmo detainees are innocent.” The Director of National Intelligence released a “Summary of the Reengagement of Detainees Formerly Held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba” “Of the 603 former detainees tracked by US intelligence services, a total of 100 have now been confirmed as reengaging in “terrorism” or “insurgent” activities, while another 74 are suspected of reengaging. This brings the total rate of recidivism to nearly 29 percent”, as reported in The Weekly Standard, 9/9/2013.
The GITMO detainees recidivism rate further exposes Mr. Holdbrooks spreading of pro Al-Qaeda propaganda in an effort to degrade our military efforts in removing and housing dangerous Islamic terrorists captured off the battlefield. I suspect, Mr. Holdbrooks knows the false narrative of the GITMO detainees innocence provides fuel to those forces who wish to see GITMO closed forever.
After Mr. Holdbrooks AMCC Longwood Mosque lecture I had the opportunity to ask him if the Salafist views taught to him by detainees Shaker Aamer and Ahmed Errachidi, had influenced the Islam he was taught by his friends who were also high level al-Qaeda recruiters?
Mr. Holbrooks says, “Shaker Aamer is a brilliant and amazing man, I hate to think how his mental health has deteriorated. However, when I first met him at Guantanamo he weighed around 250 lbs and when I left Guantanamo he dropped to around 175, obviously that was a combination of the hunger strikes. He was a very influential individual but he could have mood swings, at times you would have to take what he said with a grain of salt and fact check if what he said was balanced and moderate. I’ve heard of all the possibilities of his being an al-Qaeda recruiter…the first Qur’an that was given to me was the Yusuf Ali Meaning of the Holy Qur’an…what he (Rashidi) said was not always copacetic, so the answer is NO.”
Mr. Holbrooks answer is deceptive, Shaker Aamer and Ahmed Errachide are brilliant Islamic scholars according to this 2009 interview with cageprisoners.com. Mr. Holdbrooks says this about Shaker Aamer, “…he’s a wonderful character- unbelievably intelligent, very polite, very well-mannered, great etiquette. He is a very rational individual – if there was something he didn’t agree with, that he objected to, he’d explain it. He’d be very polite no matter whom the guard was he was working with whether it was a very ignorant uncaring American with no recognition for his situation, or me, or Chris perhaps – he is always a very polite individual, and would explain whatever was going on in terms that anyone would be able to understand. He is a wonderful person- I absolutely enjoyed spending time with him.” Mr. Holdbrooks analysis of Shaker Aamer is opposite of what he told me on December 12, 2014.
Is the 2009 Terry Holdbrooks telling the truth about Al-Qaeda terrorist Shaker Aamer or what he told me on December 12, 2014 – both versions can’t be true?
So why the deception from Mr. Holdbrooks? When I purposefully added the Salafi qualifier to the question of what was taught him by his terrorist friends, it created a psychological problem for him because Mr. Holdbrooks never denied he followed the Salafi movement – a fact which is very important. Mr. Holdbrooks knows that Salafi Islam is one of the most fundamental and violent Islamic teachings. The Salafi Jihadist movement is described this way, ” The Salafi jihadist movement has attracted rootless and or committed internationalist militants. They fight for the jihad, seeking to re-create the Muslim ummah and shariat (Islamic Law) to build an Islamic community. Simultaneously conservatives and radical, they form a global network that has attracted Muslims from around the world to fight jihad in Kashmir, Bosnia, Chechnya, Afghanistan, and the Philippines.”
In a 2009 Cageprisoner.com interview, Terry Holdbrooks is asked if he formed any kind of relationships with the detainees. Mr. Holdbrooks responds, “A good number of them… Detainee 590; ‘the General’, as we call him. There were rumors for most of the detainees as to how they received the nick names they had. We’d talk for hours and hours – we’d talk about books, we’d talk about music, we’d talk about philosophy, we would talk about religion…fortunately he didn’t have anything bad to say about the US other than its most recent history…More often than not when I got the night shift I would generally stay up and talk with him throughout the night- we’d talk about the history of this war, what’s been going on, what’s taking place in the Middle East for the last two hundred, three hundred, four hundred years…590 stayed up one night and- we’d been talking about Islam for quite a while- I’d been studying Islam for quite a while at this point, and one night he stayed up with me and he transliterated how to say in English the declaration of faith, and watched me as I said it, and whatnot. So I would say the first time I declared my faith in Islam was probably in Guantanamo- was probably that night, with him.”
Terry Holdbrooks sounds enamored with Al-Qaida detainee 590. Based on this Al-Qaeda fighters world view on Islam as a life choice, Terry Holdbrooks chose Al-Qaida.
State Rep. Womick (R-TN) has called for purging the U.S. military of Muslims
“Personally, I don’t trust one Muslim in our military” and “if they truly are a devout Muslims, and follow the Quran and the Sunnah, then I feel threatened because they’re commanded to kill me,” says U.S. Air Force veteran Rick Womick.
