[EpochTimes] A human trafficking operation joined by 12 states has rescued 47 victims and arrested 102 persons, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt announced on Friday.
"Using both buyer-centric and victim-centric ’sting’ human trafficking operations, Missouri and participating states were able to rescue 47 victims and hookersprostitutes sex workers ...the oldest profession was legal (though not always unregulated) for thousands and perhaps even millions of years. That never has made it something most people want their daughters doing... and provide needed medical services to 41, and arrested 102 across the country in connection with human trafficking," the Missouri Attorney General’s Office said in a statement.
According to the information provided by the Missouri Attorney General’s Office, the operation rescued victims and made arrests in 12 states.
Missouri: 4 victims rescued, 2 arrests made
Illinois: 1 victim rescued, 3 arrests made
Iowa: 11 arrests made, a large amount of currency has been seized
Kentucky: 21 adult victims rescued, 2 minor victims rescued, 46 arrests made
Minnesota: 8 victims rescued, 3 arrests made
Nebraska: 7 arrests made
North Dakota: 6 victims rescued, 3 arrests made
Oklahoma: 1 victim rescued, 7 arrests made
Tennessee: 4 arrests made
Texas: 4 victims rescued, 2 arrests made
Wisconsin: 5 arrests made
South Dakota: 9 arrests made
The operation, Operation United Front, was led by the Missouri Attorney General’s Office and the Missouri State Highway Patrol and joined by various law enforcement departments from Iowa, Kentucky, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Texas.
The Homeland Security Investigations and the FBI ...Formerly one of the world's premier criminal investigation organizations, something for a nation to be proud of. Now it's a political arm of the Deep State oligarchy that is willing to trump up charges, suppress evidence, or take out insurance policies come election time... also joined the efforts.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Missouri Attorney General’s Office served as the main communications hub to coordinate other states’ operations, while each state conducted its own operation simultaneously.
Missouri also offered training and information about how to best conduct these operations to participating states.
"Operation United Front was an unprecedented human trafficking operation that brought together law enforcement agencies from different jurisdictions—something that rarely happens. When we all come together, we can affect change and more effectively fight human trafficking, a crime that is often multi-jurisdictional in nature," Schmitt said.
According to data collected by the FBI, there were 1,883 human trafficking offenses reported in 2019, with 875 of the offenses cleared or closed, including 18 offenses that involved minor victims under the age of 18.
The term "cleared" or "closed" usually means the law enforcement departments have made arrests, the suspects have been charged, cases have been turned over to the court for prosecution, or the offender has been identified.

It was the R9X hellfire too. Also known as the "flying Ginsu".
[AlAhram] The Taliban ...mindless ferocity in a turban... deployed extra forces around Kabul's airport Saturday to prevent large crowds from gathering after a devastating suicide kaboom two days earlier, as the massive U.S.-led airlift wound down ahead of an Aug. 31 deadline.
New layers of checkpoints sprang up on roads leading to the airport, some manned by uniformed Taliban fighters with Humvees and night-vision goggles captured from Afghan cops. Areas where large crowds of people have gathered over the past two weeks in hopes of fleeing the country following the Taliban takeover were largely empty.
A suicide attack on Thursday by an Islamic State ...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems.... affiliate killed 169 Afghans and 13 U.S. service members, and there are concerns that the group, which is far more radical than the Taliban, could strike again. Many Western nations have completed their evacuation operations ahead of Tuesday's deadline for the withdrawal of all U.S. forces.
An Afghan who had worked as a translator for the U.S. military said he was with a group of people with permission to leave who tried to reach the airport late Friday. After passing through three checkpoints they were stopped at a fourth. An argument ensued, and the Taliban said they had been told by the Americans to only let U.S. passport-holders through.
On Saturday, the Taliban fired warning shots and deployed some kind of colored smoke on a road leading to the airport, sending dozens of people scattering, according to a video circulating online that was consistent with AP reporting.
Order descends on Afghan evacuations after airport carnage
[AlAhram] "We have lists from the Americans... if your name is on the list, you can come through," one Taliban official told AFP near the civilian passenger terminal of Hamid Karzai International Airport. "If your name isn't here, then you cannot come through."
Order replaced chaos at Kabul airport Saturday with Taliban fighters escorting a steady stream of Afghans from buses to the main passenger terminal, handing them over to US troops for evacuation.
Gone are the tens of thousands clamouring to get inside the airport grounds in the hope of getting aboard a flight before August 31, when the US-led evacuation ends and the last foreign troops depart.
The deadly Islamic State suicide blast at a secondary entrance on Thursday likely scared away many looking for a way to escape the return to power of the hardline Islamists, but the Taliban have also sealed off all roads leading to the airport and are now only letting sanctioned buses pass.
On Saturday AFP saw more than a dozen small- and medium-sized buses disgorge tense-looking passengers at the main gate of the airport. It was unclear who had organised the buses -- or where they had come from -- and the Taliban officials and guards present would not allow the passengers to be interviewed.
ON AN ADVENTURE
The men and women were separated and made to walk on opposite sides of the road, but both groups carried infants or led children by the hand -- some oblivious to their ordeal and skipping as if on an adventure.
Everyone was stripped of their luggage apart from what they could keep in a plastic bag -- but a Taliban official was quick to offer an explanation.
"Because of the blast, the Americans won't let them take anything," he said.
"We tell them to take the money and the gold in their pockets. If they leave clothes we will give to other people."
Heavily armed Taliban fighters were seen throughout the grounds and auxiliary buildings of the airport complex, while US marines peered at them from the passenger terminal roof.
After a 20-year war, the foes were within open sight of each other, separated by just 30 metres (yards), and holding fire.
Also in view of the American troops were Badri special forces in humvees gifted to the Afghan defence forces, but now flying the white Taliban flag.
It sounds like there are teams all over the landscape over there, getting people out.

Video interview at the link of a group that has gotten 200+ people out of the country.
[EpochTimes] Elliot Ackerman has served five tours in Iraq and Afghanistan as a U.S. Marine Corps officer and CIA officer. Over the past 10 days, he and his cohorts have unofficially evacuated around 200 people from Kabul airport.
"We gave these people our word, that if they worked with us, we would stand shoulder to shoulder with them."
"Any decent human being would have a hard time turning their back on these pleas for help."
Ackerman describes his and his operatives’ timely evacuation of 29 Afghans Thursday. They were able to get the group into the airport just 20 minutes before the ISIS suicide bomb went off.
With the Aug. 31 deadline for the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan looming, Ackerman gives his battle-honed perspective on the best course to take, both diplomatically and on the ground, going forward.
Ahmad Massoud's supporters rejected the Taliban ...the Pashtun equivalent of men... 's claim of entering Panjshir. "There is no fight in Panjshir and no one has entered the province," said Mohammad Almas Zahid, head of the Resistance® Front delegation.

Having taken a peek at the last Anti-FArt Website whines on the Atlanta Worldwide Freedom Rally held just over a month ago (07/24/21). It was not even grade school level lame.
But it was the Pot calling the dinnerware Black none the less.
Given Anti-Fart/BLM's historically documented Anti-Semitic, Racist positions. A group where a majority of its members adhere to Socialism, Anarchism, communism, and other misc versions of socialists views. A group well known for its physical violence, thievery against a groups seeking to voice Pro-USA & moral views, Freedoms and Rights.
So I giggled as I read their website calling Worldwide Freedom Attendees (WFA) Racist and Anti-Semitic. All because the WFA oppose Federal/State efforts to FORCE people to partake in a medical practices and treatments which they oppose based on conflicting Facts, lack of long term evidence and blanket immunity from civil actions for side effects.
Then I reminded myself who were the last 2 Governments that FORCED medical procedures of their populations. The National Socialist Germany and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR).
[JPost] Hamas says: "We need smiting too!"
IDF spokesperson confirmed that IAF warcrafts struck Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip on Saturday night, following violent riots at the border with Israel.
An army base used by Hamas for training and weapon manufacture was targeted, as well as a tunnel near Jabalya, the IDF said in a statement.
The strikes were carried out in response to incendiary balloons that were sent into Israel from Gaza throughout the weekend and over the past several days, causing two fires on Saturday, and due to the violent riots on the border. Some 11 Palestinian protesters have been injured in clashes with the IDF at the sites of the protests, according to Palestinian media.
According to Gazan reports, Palestinians fired machine guns against IAF aircrafts, but the IDF statement did not comment. The reports also claimed that the IAF attacked a Hamas army post in Salah a-Din in the central region of the Gaza Strip using an unmanned aerial vehicle.
"Night Harassment Units" were gathering on its border with Israel at a point on the fence east of Gaza city at 8 p.m., though a relative calm ensued after approximately an hour. The riots reignited around midnight.
Hundreds of rioters gathered at the border, burned tires and threw explosives. IDF forces deployed and in the area responded with riot control munitions and Ruger riot-control sniper rifles, according to the IDF Spokesperson Unit.
The troops were reinforced by special forces and tank units, it added. Smoke em if you got em
Images circulated on social media show the Palestinian "night confusion unit's" preparations for activities tonight on the Gaza border.

[Rudaw] A child was injured in a Ottoman Turkish bombardment near the northern Syrian city of Manbij, the local military council said in a statement late Saturday.
Ottoman Turkish forces bombed the village of Arab Hassan, northwest of Manbij late Saturday afternoon, injuring 10-year-old Malik Faisal al-Jarad in the leg, according to a statement from the Manbij Military Council.
"These strikes caused damage to the property of the residents, including agricultural land and livestock as well," added statement.
The Ottoman Turkish defense ministry has not immediately reported the incident.
Local media reported that the child is in stable, pH balanced condition and receiving treatment at a Manbij hospital.
The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...the occupiers of Greek Asia Minor... has several times in the past threatened to attack Manbij to force out Kurdish forces from the city. In 2018, Ankara and Washington struck a deal that saw the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) leave the city and control handed over to local councils.
Ankara claims that the Kurdish fighters are affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), an gang fighting for the increased rights of Kurds in Turkey, and Ottoman Turkish forces regularly bomb Kurdish positions in violation of ceasefires brokered in 2019 by the United States and Russia. Several civilians have been killed and injured in recent weeks.
The spokesperson for the YPG, which is the backbone of the US-allied Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), said on Friday that they are "disappointed" that the global coalition against the Islamic State ...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems.... (ISIS) has chosen to be silent about Turkey’s attacks.
[NPASYRIA] Yesterday, on Friday, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) arrested 18 people in Abu Khashab area, 70 km in the western countryside of Deir ez-Zor, on charges of belonging to the sleeper cells of the Islamic State ...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems.... (ISIS) and working for the Ottoman Turkish intelligence.
"The SDF launched a two-day security campaign, during which they were able to arrest 18 people," a military source of the SDF in the town of Abu Khashab, told North Press on Saturday.
The source added that a number of detainees were on charges of belonging to ISIS, and others on charges of working as sleeper cells recruited by the Ottoman Turkish authorities to carry out liquidations and destabilize the region for money.
In a statement published on its official website on Saturday, the SDF said that a quantity of weapons and documents were seized. These weapons prove the terrorists’ involvement in many liquidations and bombings at the orders of Ottoman Turkish parties within the "occupied" areas and intelligence centers in Ottoman Turkish territory.
The statement pointed out that the security campaign came "after an intelligence and field effort to pursue members of terrorist cells and their collaborators."
The arrested turbans admitted to carrying out several bombings and liquidations in the area, according to the same source.
Yesterday, on Friday, the SDF arrested wanted individuals on the charge of belonging to ISIS in two different operations in the towns of al-Baghouz and al-Jazra in the eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor.
On August 24, the SDF arrested two ISIS members in al- Latwa neighborhood in the Thiban town, 50 km east of Deir ez-Zor.
Recently, the SDF and the Global Coalition have intensified their security operations to pursue ISIS sleeper cells in the countryside of Deir ez-Zor.

[NPASYRIA] On Saturday, the countryside of Idlib and Hama, northwest Syria, witnessed a continuation of mutual shelling between the Ottoman Turkish-backed armed opposition factions and the government forces, causing material damage to civilian homes.
"The government forces stationed in the city of Kafranbel renewed their artillery and missile shelling on the towns of al-Fatira and al-Bara, in the Zawiya mountain area, south of Idlib," sources of the opposition factions told North Press.
"The bombing targeted neighborhoods and residential homes, which resulted in the destruction of public and private properties, without casualties reported," the sources added.
The government bombed the sites of the opposition factions near the towns of al-Enkawi and Qleidin in the Ghab Plain area in the western countryside of Hama countryside, with heavy artillery shells and rocket launchers, according to the same sources.
Responding to the government bombing, the al-Fateh al-Mubin Operations Room, which includes several factions, announced that it had targeted the positions of the government forces in the town of Malajah in the southern countryside of Idlib, with mortars and Grad rockets ...Soviet-developed 122-mm rockets, usually launched from trucks.
