Sec Def Mattis Flips the Script, Says US Is Happy to Kill Terrorists for ‘Defaming Islam’
After an al-Qaeda terrorist leader was killed in a U.S. airstrike, Secretary of Defense James Mattis sent a strong message to anyone around the world who carries out acts of violence in the name of Islam.
A press release from the Department of Defense confirmed the death of Qari Yasin in a U.S. airstrike in Afghanistan on March 19. Explaining Yasin’s history of violent extremism, the statement reads:
Yasin, a senior terrorist figure from Balochistan, Pakistan, had ties to Tehrik-e Taliban and had plotted multiple al Qaida terror attacks, including the Sept. 20, 2008, bombing on the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad that killed dozens of innocent people, among them U.S. Air Force Maj. Rodolfo I. Rodriguez and Navy Cryptologic Technician Third Class Petty Officer Matthew J. O’Bryant.
Yasin was also responsible for the 2009 attack on a bus carrying the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore. Six Pakistani policemen and two civilians were killed and six members of the team injured.
The release concludes with a terse and direct statement from Sec. Mattis himself, declaring just how the United States plans to treat terrorists under his direction:
“The death of Qari Yasin is evidence that terrorists who defame Islam and deliberately target innocent people will not escape justice.”
