Meet Um Hanadi: An Iraqi Death Squad Commander Presented as a “Housewife Hero” to Vapid American Audiences

In Syria, two weeks ago, the Pentagon ordered an “accidental” strike on Syrian Arab Army (SAA) forces in order to stop the cease-fire deal which would have forced them to give up information on “ISIS”, their proxy regime change army in that country. The SAA was engaged in a fight with “ISIS” and other regime change actors in the area.

This week Pentagon and Obama administration officials are panicking because the SAA combined with forces from Iran and Russia are poised to begin a major ground assault in eastern Aleppo in order to retake their city from our “moderate” terrorists who aligned with and indistinguishable from al-Nusra which is actually al-Qaeda. In fact, an al-Nusra commander recently told a reporter that all of the “moderate” opposition in Syria these days are actually al-Nusra.

And if that isn’t enough Bizarro World news for one Saturday morning, try this on for size: CNN and other MSM outlets are touting the “heroic” nature of one thirty-nine-year-old Wahida Mohamed, a.k.a “Um Hanadi”, the self-described “housewife” death squad commander from Iraq.

“This is a woman who commands respect, I thought. She keeps a Beretta 9-millimeter pistol in a holster under her left arm. The area around the trigger was silver where the paint had worn off.

The woman in question, 39-year-old Wahida Mohamed — better known as Um Hanadi — leads a force of around 70 men in the area of Shirqat, a town 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Mosul, Iraq.

She and her men, part of a tribal militia, recently helped government forces drive ISIS out of the town.” CNN

This tribal militia she is supposedly leading is one of many Iraqi government and US coalition-backed death squads in the country running around killing, torturing and beheading Iraqis who support the real revolution taking place in the country being lead by the General Military Council of Iraqi Revolutionaries.

The CNN story goes on to mention the fact that this woman still has an active Facebook page which shows her beheading captured individuals, cooking their heads in pots and burning them alive. I thought Facebook was supposed to delete and ban users who post graphic images of death, torture and violence? I guess not when they are part of a new hearts and minds campaign.

“After listing all the attacks against her, and all the loved ones lost to ISIS, Um Hanadi said: “I fought them. I beheaded them. I cooked their heads, I burned their bodies.”

She made no excuses, nor attempted to rationalize this. It was delivered as a boast, not a confession.

“This is all documented,” she said. “You can see it on my Facebook page.”

So we checked. Among many pictures of her with her dead husbands, fighters and generals, there was a photo of her in the same black combat fatigues and headscarf holding what appeared to be a freshly severed head. Another showed two severed heads in a cooking pot. In a third photograph, she is standing among partially-burned corpses.” CNN

As is often the case, the truth of her story is hidden right there in plain sight if you simply take the time to do a little research.


“”I began fighting the terrorists in 2004, working with Iraqi security forces and the coalition,” she says. As a result, she attracted the wrath of what eventually became al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, which later morphed into ISIS.” CNN

In 2004, al-Qaeda wasn’t in Iraq. The only thing in Iraq back then was a large percentage of the population who were fighting against our occupation and the corrupt puppet regime we installed after the invasion of 2003. You’ll notice CNN makes that point clear in a way by stating she was fighting “what eventually became” al-Qaeda.

She wasn’t fighting al-Qaeda, she was part of a death squad, one of many set up in 2004 by by the Salvador Option expert we sent in that year, Colonel Jim Steele and his direct supervisor, David Petraeus.
