The New Propagandist For Al-Qaida In Syria And His Link To Hollywood

“Al-Qaida’s arm in Syria, a group called Jabat al-Nusra, has just deployed a new weapon – a young British convert named Lucas Kinney. Kinney, 26, is making videos for the group and he’s no stranger to filmmaking. His father is Patrick Kinney, a well-known Hollywood assistant director who worked on such iconic films as Rambo, Braveheart, and the Indiana Jones series, among others. The younger Kinney began appearing in slickly produced videos this month in a bid to help the al-Qaida affiliate recruit fighters to their cause. Among the things that set these latest productions apart is that Kinney’s focus not on America, but rather on the sins of the Islamic State, or ISIS.”
