One of the top commanders in the Islamic State was killed this past July. Just as soon as he was killed another military commander popped up right in his place.

Conservative Tribune has more on the matter:

According to PJ Media, Gulmurod Khalimov has been named the new commander of Islamic State group military forces, taking the place of the recently deceased Tarkhan Batirashvili. Khalimov already had a $3 million bounty placed on his head by the United States.

However, Khalimov was not some unknown Islamist militant new to the jihad scene, but a known quantity, having been trained multiple times in counter-terrorism tactics by the State Department as recently as 2014, when he was serving as a police chief in the security services of Tajikistan.

In what would be a laughable coincidence if the subject matter weren’t so deadly serious, the dead commander he replaced, Batirashvili, also known as Umar al-Shisani, was also trained in counter-terrorism by U.S. forces when he served in the Georgian army.

In May 2015, CNN reported on a statement from State Department spokeswoman Pooja Jhunjhunwala, who said: “From 2003-2014 Colonel Khalimov participated in five counterterrorism training courses in the United States and in Tajikistan, through the Department of State’s Diplomatic Security/Anti-Terrorism Assistance program.”

That special program trained military and intelligence members of foreign governments in the latest counter-terrorism tactics favored by the U.S., including such things as “crisis response, tactical management of special events, tactical leadership training and related issues.”

Seemingly without a hint of irony, Jhunjhunwala also insisted that Khalimov had been thoroughly “vetted” and cleared to take part in the training.

Apparently ungrateful for the taxpayer-funded tactical training he had received, Khalimov issued a dire threat to the U.S. in a video released after joining the terrorist army.

“Listen, you American pigs: I’ve been to America three times. I saw how you train soldiers to kill Muslims,” he said. “We will find your towns, we will come to your homes, and we will kill you.”

Sadly, this is certainly not the first time that U.S.-trained foreign fighters have joined the very terrorist outfits they were trained to fight against. Just look at the “moderate” Syrian rebels who have joined the Islamic State group or Al Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra in Syria, or the Libyan rebels trained to topple the Qaddafi regime, only to form terrorist militias or travel elsewhere in the Middle East to join the jihad there.

Similar incidents have occurred in other North African nations, where U.S.- or other Western allies-trained soldiers have either staged coups or defected to terrorist organizations in the region, often taking their advanced equipment, and certainly their training, with them.

If ever one needed proof that President Barack Obama’s foreign policy and strategy to fight Islamic terrorism was an utter failure, here it is.

And they wonder why so many people think we are losing the war against the Islamic State group. Well, having the individuals our tax dollars trained to fight jihad instead go and join the jihad is a pretty clear indicator that we aren’t winning.
