A fighter with the Islamic State group in a new online video was trained in counterterrorism tactics in the U.S., the State Department confirmed.

Col. Gulmurod Khalimov, a former police commander from Tajikistan, is shown in black garb worn by the Islamic State group and holding a sniper rifle and a bandolier of ammunition in the terror group’s new video. He claims that he participated in training programs on U.S. soil three times, one of which was in Louisiana, CNNreported Friday.

“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,” Pooja Jhunjhunwala, a spokeswoman for the State Department, told CNN.

    Obama facilitated the meltdown of the Middle East. His newly installed military leadership is training muslim terrorists & our government is arming & funding them. WHY did Obama BOMB LIBYA WITHOUT CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL?? Do you think some civilians died during Obama’s attack on a sovereign nation that was NOT a threat to us? Doesn’t that make HIM a WAR CRIMINAL?? WHY are we arming, training & funding KNOWN TERRORISTS to take down ANOTHER SOVEREIGN nation’s leader who also is NOT a threat to us, Syria’s Assad??
    WHERE are the CODE PINK anti war protestors & the leftist media that savaged Bush every day since 9/11? WHY is it ok for Obama to slaughter civilians, use drones, bomb sovereign nations without congressional approval & arm & fund terrorists??
