It's all a little bit 'Homeland', isn't it? Just doesn't seem conceivable?!? And like so much else these days, it just doesn't add up.
Let's look at this pragmatically.
- A woman working for the FBI, with access to sensitive materials concerning national security, does a runner to Syria and marries an ISIS leader. (Let's ignore that how odd and unlikely that is, and move on.)
- Within days she sends messages saying how much she regrets it, sends messages back home saying she wants to come back (somehow evading any scrutiny from her new ISIS family), even if she goes to prison. "That's life" she says.
- Somehow, she magically gets out of ISIS-ville, nobody seems to mind that the blonde American FBI girl who stands out like a sore thumb "doesn't really like it here" and has gone walkies. She takes a flight home, maybe stops for some duty free, and is then arrested when she lands. Eg: the US have clearly known her whereabouts at all times.
- This woman, Daniela Green, has allegedly committed treason at just about the highest, most critical scale - punishable by death in some US states, and yet, she is only sentenced to TWO years in prison. In fact, she's already free on probation. You get more than that for smoking a joint in some places (especially if you're black).
- A professor who trained her at university seems to believe it impossible she would ever EVER be involved in terrorism, and provides a convincing character reference. Not evidence, but perhaps quite telling.
- The entire case was hidden and sealed from the press by the US Department of Defence, all reporting on the matter was deliberately hushed up, and they are barely cooperating at all with a CNN investigation.
It seems to me, there are two circumstances which likely fit this chain of events:
1) Green was a spy for the US. She was sent in deliberately to gain information, and the rest was a back story to fool this ISIS fighter and his associates. However, this relies on them being pretty f**king stupid, and easy to fool. And it still wouldn't explain how she just waltzed out of the ISIS conclave in Syria, and managed to get home seemingly quite easily.
2) Green was negotiating with ISIS, or relaying some kind of information with full knowledge and instigation of the US government. Of course, the US can't admit they're actually in touch and coordinating with "terrorists", so they come up with a rather flimsy scenario that although full of holes, is enough to fool most pliable/sheep-like Americans. (Kinda like a small missile-sized hole in the side of the Pentagon, that was supposed to be a jumbo jet.) This version would also explain how Green was able to leave and get home so easily.
And of course, IF this is the case, the clear implication is that ISIS are in fact a US backed group: waging war by proxy on their behalf against US enemies in the region (Assad and Putin).
Which admittedly, might seem a little far-fetched.
At least it would if there wasn't SO much more unrelated information out there confirming the exact same thesis. In fact, if you make that assumption, and then take a look back at the history of Al-Qaeda - and more specifically their transformation into ISIS since 9/11 and the Iraq War - it's actually quite chilling how much more sense it makes than anything the US government have offered as explanation. For any of it.
I don't claim to know exactly what's going on, but I also know bullsh*t when I hear it.
Sometimes, it's almost as if the US/UK populace are 'softened' and/or distracted by conspiracy dramas for both TV and film. It's almost as if they want us to say:
"that happened in season five of 24, there's no way it could happen in real life. It's preposterous."
Some possibly wouldn't put much stock in another theory either - that a liberal, hero-like black president was actually physically tested on the US population well before anyone knew Barack Obama's name. That in fact, 24's 'President David Palmer' gauged that particular reaction years beforehand, and it was then implemented as a brilliant distraction.
Crazy, bonkers, too far-fetched right? Perhaps. Or maybe, to coin a phrase, the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was to convince the world he didn't exist.
