Fmr. DHS official compares Trump to a terrorist leader
MediasTouch, a progressive media company, released a recent podcast episode with Harvard professor and former Homeland security official Juliette Kayyem, where she labeled President Trump as a terrorist organization leader.
“What the president does…he targets people for political gain. That’s what this was about, it’s for him to remain in power,” Kayyem said referring to last week’s U.S. Capitol riot.
Kayyem went on to describe President Trump as the leader of a terrorist organization and how we must “get the guys at the top” by using “leadership decapitation.”
In an article written by Kayyem published Tuesday in The Atlantic, she described how “leadership decapitation” works.
“Successful efforts to fight terrorism begin at the top. An ideology may survive and linger, but to curtail a terror threat requires what counterterrorism experts call ‘leadership decapitation.’ Society is more likely to heal when an extremist group’s ideological leader is isolated and damaged in the eyes of his supporters,” Kayyem writes.
“Now we have to think about all the ways we get a terrorist. De-platform them, that’s what we did we ISIS. Isolate the leadership,” Kayyem said. “You shame them, you prosecute, you impeach.”
Kayyem continued by saying the only way to regain peace in this country is by “total isolation of Donald Trump.”
“It’s actually better if Trump supporters know that he’s permanently damaged,” Kayyem said. “That’s the way terrorists work. Recruits want a winner.”
